Changes? Dumps?

The countdown to Jody commences in earnest - 16 January for City Council rubber stamp? What will be the first movements and changes?

Who's going to get dumped?

Who's going to retire?

What is going to get disbanded?

You may begin your predictions and wish lists here.

Interesting rumor I heard. The possibility that 2 new positions will be created thereby abolishing the position of 1st Deputy as we know it.
1st Deputy of Operations- Williams
1st Deputy of Investigations- Grau

Also representitives from Kimberly-Clark will be at rear entrance passing out samples of Kleenex in the Travelers size.

Yea the way I figure it they need to add about two more First Deputy Superintendents, at least three more Deputy Superintendents and a Chief or two. Then I figure they will have everything covered. Yea they need a new Bureau too.

The CPD will be changed to follow the civilized policing world and do the following: A 1st Deputy who stands in when the supe is out, and on a day to day basis runs the business side of things...personel, legal, finance, discipline. A new position for the head of Operations-which will include both BIS and Patrol. The NYPD's title is "Chief of Department," and ranks 3rd in their hierarchy. Any such intelligent move would be a blow to the control of clout spots by both the 1st, and the new Chief-as they are responsible for their own manpower alone. Our Department has been set up to support the clout system first, and to properly run a police department second (or third...). So my prediction is: New role for the 1st. New title of Chief of Operations- a 3 star spot. 5 exempt spots eliminated in the first 60 days as the supe discovers several people down at 35th Street who do NOTHING.

TO: "Interesting rumor I heard. The possibility that 2 new positions will be created thereby abolishing the position of 1st Deputy as we know it.

That actually sounds like a good idea with the right bosses in those positions.

The new Sup will need someone who has actually made a traffic stop or an arrest to run the Dept. since he only has administrative experience.

I hope he at least goes on a ride-along. Geez......

I'm not convinced yet that hiring an outsider was a good idea.

Any clout hack can pad a resume. I reccommend Jody bring in some of his FBI friends to look into them.

Ain't no discharge on the ground!
Ain't no use in lookin back!
Jody's got your Cadillac!

Jody's got your girlfriend too!

Hope the fat gets cut, look on clear at the department structure. Why do we need so many exempt members? Why so many bureaus? It is just like the general orders can't we condense them into something everyone can understand. How about making about 200 Sgt's and hiring 500 new P.O's so we can get the job done right. If we have the 18th Dist and the 1st Dist why do we need the central control group? See what I am talking about. Quit making spot's for people.....

If Jody wants to be successful he only needs to do one thing:

Put ALL of the resources of the CPD into supporting the Patrol Officer.

Get rid of Gang UnIntelligence, Narcotics, TRU etc and put all of these people back in Patrol.

That is all.

Exempts to be demoted:
Charles Williams, Risley, Maher,Everett Johnson, Tobias, Brown, Kohlman, Green, Stanley, Roy, Doty, Carroll.
Exempts to be Promoted.
Keating, McCotter, Kevin Ryan, Patterson, Wysinger, Dana Alexander, Limon, Yamashroya, Rottner, Voulgaris. You will also see several Captains get promoted.
One or two districts will be closed, and 008 will be split into two districts. SOS will be completely disbanded, and what remains, SWAT, Canine, et al. will be absorbed into TRU. The manpower of Intelligence, NAGIS, and other units will be cut, and the districts will hopefully, finally see some manpower.

Remember Superintendent Elect Weis stated that he beleives in de-centralizing. Look for the majority of Narcotics and Detective Division to be assigned to Districts.The thinking behind this is that if you are truly going to hold District Commanders responsible for what goes down in their districts, they must have control of the resources needed. No more just saying "I notified Narcotics" or "the Dicks are handling." This is being done in Los Angeles and it works! There will still be mid-long term and HIDTA teams under NAGIS and specialized units under the D unit central command such as CHESS, Task forces etc... REMEMBER
You read it here first!
Also, look for the Superintendent elect at City Hall around January

Can't comment about Cmdr. Green, but don't count Lt. Ball out. He's a sharp guy, doing what has been asked of him, as anyone else in his position would be. I see a command position in the near future for the guy.
It must be rough for some of the remaining coppers in SOS (or "special functions" as it's now called) to have to report to a black boss or TWO. Maybe Weis will shake that up a bit more when he gets here. The Madison st. "Mason-Dixon" line has existed for far too long.

This is from a friend who knows someone, but the main source is reliable. Jody called and spoke with each Deputy Superintendent, including Dana and asked them to stay. Don't look for big dumps or retirements for at least 6 months or until the dust has settled.

1. Disband Operation Closed Market. I have never seen it as being truly useful and it actually slows down the inside positions that are needed.
2. I agree with the the other post, why do we have a central control group for 018 and 001? Only to create a spot for a boss. Disband it.
3. Arrange with the unions to knock merit promotions to 10% and each member gets to use it only once.
4. Sometime before every boss leaves the academy from their promotional training, have a day of "dont forget you wore a blue shirt once" training. Not the "forget you were ever a blue shirt" mentality they all have now.

Like the 2:49 poster said the resumes don't mean a thing. The clout bosses have great ones. Been to every training and sent to other departments for "research " for their projects that no one ever read or implemented. The Lt's that are out there in patrol look like they haven't done a thing yet they are the ones actually taking the hits for their decisions and keeping things running. Hopefully our new boss has someone that will explain that to him and he will give the working, no clout people a look when he thinks about his new command staff. Also a look into who "made" who would give him some great insight. Maybe we could post that again.

Skahill will be promoted first. She would have been Superintendent if she were not so heavy and loud. Other than that, she is a heck of a boss, doesn't give a shit about your clout nor your race for that matter, and she can go toe to toe with any exempt on any subject matter.

Tobias is a great guy, he should not be sanctioned because of the idiots that worked under his unit. That is not fair to him or any of the other bosses at SOS. Normally when their is a major illegal complaint, the fucking bosses don't even know. IAD keeps that shit to themselves, investigates it, then informs the powers at be.

We really need some new blood at the top. They will create a number 2 spot that does not focus on CAPS, but actually runs the department when the Supt. is gone because he has 2 jobs remember, he needs that support system.

Charlie Williams, Grau, especially Risley all need to find something else to do in their old age. Risley, this is a perfect example of the stupid making us look even more stupid.

Who in the hell are all of you people kidding? There will be no changes like that. Anything done will be smoke and mirrors to make it look like changes are being done. Wow, with all the "police expierence" on here, I would've thought you people can see through the bullshit. The bosses with whack will still control who gets in a specialized units and promoted and that persons phone call will have to owe someone who they let them in. It will be the same bullshit. Sorry kid, to many CR's, and you know for a fact that there are guys with more than you in those units. Or the famous statement after your interview, do you want come here? If you have a call, make it, you know how it is, sorry. At a early point in my career, I was under the dillusion that if you worked hard, did your best, loved the job and gave it all, you would be rewarded or at least concidered above people with 0 expierence. I must've been high. I know a few hundred cops like this too. Then it all sank in, and to this day, I can't believe the bullshit within this department. I should've listened to all the old timers but I had to learn on my own I guess. To all the younger guys out there who can't wait to go into work while on RDO or furlo, and have no whack, trust me, it's all bullshit. To all the old timers that helped me become the cop that I am, thank you, I now see the light. To the people that things will change in this department, get a clue. To the bosses who give the spots to friends, guys who hooked them up with things, etc.etc. and overlook the workers who give it their all everday busting their asses and doing the right thing, FUCK YOU THREE TIMES YOU COWARDS!!! Just to let you know bosses, this is how people feel. Jody, I know you probably don't read this shit but in the remote possibility you do, this is how guys on this jobe feel.

I can see further erosion of our senority rights largely due to the FOP's silence and caving in on issues. We FOP members will have to look long and hard where we want to be in 10 or 20 years. Getting scraps like Days off, New Weapons order are just that SCRAPS to placate us. We need to look at our future which should include the health of our pension fund, and healthcare when we retire.

C.K.?
Qualifications & abilities?

In way over her head, she f'ed 013 up just to prove a point... Anyone with a half second on the job knows Wood is a launching pad for exempts on the way up. Rumor was at least the last couple of promoted exempts paid her a visit and told her to enjoy the ride, leave everything/everyone alone & the district will take care of itself and she'll be sitting pretty in a couple years & get promoted. NOT! Forced retirements, changed assignments and putting her snitches in place. One night the ads came through and people were looking at him really funny but it's really not his fault she's a goof. A few people at the area say the d/c has yelled at her a few times... No doubt he wants to get rid of her but whoever she was a fluffer for is trying to run interference... the biggest laugh was when she submitted her resume with the other exempts, she has no capacity for shame or embarrassment. Some say an object example of the Peter principle in the flesh, she's not even qualified to clean the toilets so who did she wear the golden kneepads for? Rumor is our former leader, P.C./Capt. Crunch, we hope he enjoyed it at least...

Another year gone, and still no contract for CPD,lots of the hardest working Cops in the U.S.A.

Are you new or something? There will be no new contract until it goes to arbitration and the arbitrator rules. The two sides are too far apart to agree on major issues.

THIS IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE FOP, the city lays down what they will give and then does not budge an inch, take it or leave it basically. The FOP cannot advocate a strike or take any job action. It is in the city's interest to drag it out as long as possible because they do not pay interest on retro pay.

Write this down: No settlement in 2008, take that to the bank, perhaps arbitrator decision by end of 2008, maybe spring of 2009, retro by June 2009, certainly no sooner.

And why is this? Because we work for a city run by a great big asshole. The city will not negotiate in good faith. FOP has to wait till they have grounds to file for arbitration, they have to stand by and let the city dick us around for 6 to 9 months and then go to arbitration.

The usual length without a contract has been 2 years, this might go more, don't spend those raises yet. And you can expect all your health care costs to go up. This is reality. Anyone who thinks they will get a speedy contract and raise is dreaming. Go to work and live your life, it will happen eventually.

Think you can do better? Go to FOP meetings and run for office.

Nothng will change! King Richard II does not had out $300,000 jobs to outsiders to scrap everything he's done up til now.

Furthermore, no upper Gold Star will leave in a tizzy. They want their kids and mistresses to get promoted. Sure way to make that not happen is to make a stink. Besides they all want those 6 figure jobs on top of their 6 figure pension.

Dollars and cents, kids...

Weis doesn't know a police department from the sewer department (oops, untimely comparison). The new 1st Deputy will run the show, Weis will look pretty and take the heat. Remember, it's about the Mayor, not about us. This guy ain't OW Wilson.

rumor has it that there will be new promotion test across the board , say goodbye to the old lists!

12/31/2007 09:37:00 AM

Nice rumor, to bad there is a federal law that mandates that a certain number of promotions have to be made off each promotion list. I am not sure the exact number, but I am pretty sure that it is more than 35 and less than 500. The city can still drop a list, as we know they seem to do whatever they want no matter what law is out there, but they would get sued, lose, and than have to promote off the old list and pay back pay as well.
Also, do you really think the city will throw a million dollars more in to another test, no they won't.

HERE THE RUMOR YOU BANK ON. WHILE JODY WAS ASSIGNED TO THE CHICAGO OFFICE , HE LIVED IN NAPERVILLE (NICK NAME AGENTVILLE). AND IS FRIENDS WITH NAPERVILLE POLICE CHIEF DAVE DIAL. WATCH FOR DIAL TO RETIRE FROM NAPARVILLE AND FOR JODY FOR NAME TO AN EXEMPT POSITION HERE.
THE UPSHOT, DIAL WILL MAKE SURE ARE SQUAD CARS AND THE MOST ADVANCED WITH ALL THEV TOYS AND OUR UNIFORMS WILL CHANGE TO ALL BLACK JUST LIKE NAOAERVILLE'S.

------------------------

Christ, I'd rather have 5 CR #'s placed on me in one afternoon then your idea. Naperville is a micro mgt p/o hating dept. I can drive (so can a lot of other coppers) around without a PDT and no shotgun and be the police. Dear Naperville BJ artist, be the fucking police. Learn to memorize plates from oncoming traffic and have squad run it for you if needed. Keep in mind where people are on jobs, and back each other up. I'm doing fine with a radio, gun, pool car, and a partner instead of having some upitty suburban cop telling us how to do things. Because I'd rather drive around in a go-cart and keep our blue instead of paying a couple of thousand on new black uniforms.

In a moment of quiet musing. I believe that the Fed model for Law Enforcement is Train, Train and more traing.

Is it possible we could see a system of increase traing? Either in-service, or an internet based education similar to streaming video?

Why don't we start with SPELLING "Traing"

12/31/2007 06:42:00 PM

Who will conduct this training? Interent based training is a pipe dream. technology is lacking and trained instructors do not exist. In-service training is a complete myth at academy. Officers on street do not receive adequate follow up training. After graduation, no one cares. FTO program, lack of sgts and no inservice training has created a huge void in this department. Deal with it!

Tobias is a great guy, he should not be sanctioned because of the idiots that worked under his unit. That is not fair to him or any of the other bosses at SOS. Normally when their is a major illegal complaint, the fucking bosses don't even know. IAD keeps that shit to themselves, investigates it, then informs the powers at be.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Totally NOT true!

if there is a Confidential Investigationon your troops (unless you are suspected or part of it) IAD has to ask permission to see if you CONCUR for the investigation to be conducted confidentially.

This is done to see if you elude to anyone any information on the investigation. It is a testament to you command position to be a management player and KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT.

Did anyone ever think that maybe TOBIAS knew about the investigation and was informed to leave things alone and let things transpire.

This investigation may have been initaited by DARLING and he may have had knowledge of the investigation which may have been passed on to the next in command so they did not disrupt an ongoing investigation.

So think before you speak of what boss is to blame! You never know where these things come from!

here is what i want to get our man power back up and organized correctly:

Close 20 and 23, let 24 and 19 take over them.

Close 13 district - have 12 and 14 cover that and realign their beats (those districts are dead)

Close 21 and have 001 and 002 cover it.

Open a new district in 008 and split 008 up.

Make 004 and 006 5 beats per sector to help them out!
Make 005 and 022 4 beats per sector (both those huge districts are only 3 beats a sector? are you kidding me?)

Send the troops to where they're needed. Send the supervisors to where they're needed. Demote the commanders down to LT or whatever they were and send them to where they're needed!

Closing those districts will free up at least 900 POs, 40 SGTs, 12 LTs and 9 Capts.

As to any comments on training, training is what we need. It is the first step in changing things from the top down because in order to train the top has to admit training is needed and then give the resources to it. Whether we like to see it or not policing is changing and we need to keep up. It is becoming much more of a profession and less of a "job." The world we in policing face now is far different from that of our fathers. We are far more scrutinized and we need to be smarter, stronger, and better then they ever were. Sure, we love to glamorize the old days and there were thousands of great policeman over the years but that was for a different time. Besides, the city and the administration owes it to each and every one of us to provide us with the most and the best training they can provide. You know, to a great extent much of what is happening to this department come from the lack of training. For soooo many years things were over looked because you had to do what you had to do to get the job done. Wasn't that the explanation? Yet, if more emphasis was placed on learning we would find there were perfectly legal and ethical ways to get some of those things done. Like come on, the Judges have been throwing out the "drop" cases for years. Not because the dude never drops his dope, we know he does it quite often, but case after case after case...? But go to any roll call in this city and ask someone to explain the "Plain Feel" exception as it pertains to a Terry stop and you'll get a bunch of blank stares. No, we won't win the "Plain Feel" arrest in court but we don't win many drop cases either. But the other side of the coin is "Plain Feel" is legal. That's a very small example. Just think if we got real Peak Driving training, not that, that unit doesn't do a great job with what they've got, they do. Same with the range, they do an excellent job but please, are we really trained for tactical shooting??? How often are we given Legal updates??? A general order is not training..How many of us were taught the K.I.S.S. method of case reporting. We are not simple or stupid so why should we be trained to write as if we were??? They owe us to train us and we should embrace any training they give us... Unity.......
