More Rumor Quick Hits
All sorts of interesting rumors lately. We cover the "uniform commissary" in depth below this post. We also heard the following in the comments:
- The massive transfer of Sergeants down south has been delayed or canceled? What the hell is going on? Did someone point out that there are seniority issues involved in the involuntary movement of individuals from their respective districts and watches?
- Closed Market is dead? Again? We shall reiterate for the slower readers who are monitoring the site from 35th Street - if you can detail people from HQ for 90 days and not affect operations, then HQ is overstaffed by at least that many people. If any place needs to learn to do more with less, it's Headquarters.
- The people being stripped for years old beefs? There's a common thread to each rumored removal - a Rule 14 violation. This tracks with an initiative rumored to have begun with the recently departed Deputy Superintendent of Patrol who told anyone who'd listen that a Rule 14 violator is "no good" to the Department. They can't work undercover, they can't be on warrants, they can't even testify at a municipal hearing. There are under 100 of them currently on the Department and we'd imagine that each and every one of them is going to be put through the wringer shortly.
The mayhem continues.
