Sneed Was Right

Frank Gross was in line for a new title:
  • Commander of 013 instead of Commander of Special Events
It seems Gross and Martin are switching spots. And it appears like this is going to be Hillard's legacy - exempts screw up, and they just get moved around until the heat dies down and the new guy comes in. Henny Penny gets "demoted" to a spot that removes her from public view, is actually a pay raise, and relives her of any responsibility for meetings. Frank gets moved to one of the quieter districts in the city that actually can run itself 80-or-90% of the time.

Why punish Commander Martin though?

To be honest with you gross is a pretty decent guy. Worked for him when he was in 020 and he always took care of the guys on the watch. I understand that when people become bosses they have an instant target on thier back but this guy got many a blue shirts out of jams when he was around. Im not sure where the negative feelings toward him come from but as someone who worked for the guy he is pretty decent. Im sure its alot of people who are jealous which makes up about 80 percent of the department. Whatever, way too many bitter people on this job who would hate patton if he was in charge...just some people cant be pleased.

I agree with this. Many (not all) posting to this blog just like to complain and hate. "All Gold Stars are bad because they are merit" Well of course they are merit because all gold stars are appointed. They have to be. There is no test. Not all bosses are bad.
Gross is a decent guy. There are much worse around. A few don't like him becuase he was tight with Cline and they make it seem like they are many and not just an unhappy few.

What's really, really interesting here, SCC, is that during the awful J-Fled years, Sneed barely had an uptick on what was going on in the CPD. She basically had to find out about it by reading whatever 3M allowed to be released, or spoon feed to Spielman or Main. Now that Hillard is back, Sneed seems to be in the know about every change being made, and even faster than this blog can hear about it...kinda makes you wonder, hmmm?

Wow...be an exempt fuck up several times over, get
'dumped' to a district that is so quiet the Dept. should seriously consider closing it and merging those beats with those of 012 and 014...what a 'punishment.'

The question remains unanswered. . . . how does an exempt get overtime doing his job? As an exempt member working special events and/or a movie detail, for which he gets paid straight time while "on the clock," how does he get OT for doing stuff "off the clock" when it is all related to his on-duty work?

3/22/2011 12:40:00 AM


I'm retired now, but I worked for MANY a boss that was competent and took care of their people. I think the problem today, might be this:

In the CPD BEFORE Daley, everyone took exams to get promoted through the ranks. To be sure, SOME peoples' test scores were altered to get a connected few up through the ranks, BUT many a qualified and excellent boss got promoted through Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain, who were NOT connected at all. And let's face it, for the most part, those ranks have a lot more impact on the lives of us on the the bottom than any exempt has.

The whole problem did not start, however, until a judge ruled that the Department could promote to the next rank based on "MERIT", but then allowed them to do it WITHOUT DEFINING what "merit" is.

Compounding the problem, was the 30% amount that was ALLOWABLE to promote as meritorious. Before Daley, no one EVER tried to sneak through 30%, ILLEGALLY, to the next rank. Now, its looked at as a mandate that the 30% HAVE TO BE PROMOTED meritoriously. THAT IS WRONG!

That reminds me of a Sgt. friend of mine who was asked to do the Neighborhood Relations job. He thought it might be a path to meeting VIPs & politicians and give him a shot at a merit Lt. promotion. He let the PO's run it, (as most smart Sgts SHOULD do until they are needed) and he concentrated on the "administrative" matters of his office. Toward the end of his first year, the DC called him into his office and pointed out that there was a bunch of budgeted cash assigned to NR that was still there. The Sgt proudly acknowledged that he had been able to conserve and save the Dept much of the NR budget for the year. The DC told him that if they didn't spend the money, the Department might eliminate it from their budget for the next year, so he better find something to spend it on. THIS is plain and simple, a government view of budgetary matters. To comply, the Sgt wasted the cash he had "saved" on all kinds of BS lunches and community giveaways. It was like Christmas!

So, I tell this Neighborhood Relations story in order to apply it to the 30% level of meritorious promotions. If there are NOT enough people who TRULY DESERVE the merit promotion, don't scramble around looking for UNDESERVING ones just to fill the 30%.

THEN limit them to ONE merit promotion per career. Stop moving UNQUALIFIED people meritoriously, rank after rank (Penny), in order to use up your 30% allotment.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO IT!

Judy Martin is a very nice lady who always appreciated and took care of her troops no matter what rank she had.

Would you rather have Penny Trahanas? I heard, but did not see in writting, that Penny is a COMMANDER in the INSPECIONS Division. That there were seven Lieutenants from HQ, not Captains assigned as Field Inspectors. Is this a violation of the Captains' P.B.&P.A. contract? Will they get out of grade pay that is not pensionable if they "produce"?

On Frank Gross, if that is true, isn't there a prohibition on outside employment, except for teaching, for exempts?

The changes are coming. The message will come out two or one day prior to change day. Exempt level changes.

One that is confirmed is GEU commander is gone! I cannot state any others as they may not occur if I post them on the blog right away. But for a fact the GEU commander is gone. Apparently every level is not happy with how the GEU commander has done things.

Also look for several command spots to be removed. A smooth transition is to take place on the 16th of May. There will be no actual demotions except for the GEU commander. The demotions will be in the form of moving people out of the "nice" assignments and into other postions, like it was done before Jody took over. A exempt did not get demoted (unless they really really screwed up) only moved to a different spot. Patrol will be getting more people with GEU to loose some and narcotics.

A complete review is occuring of all exempts and what their functions are. Also another 90 day detail to patrol level (MSF and TRU) will be occuring in MAY. These 90 detail spots are to be filled from insdie units and investigative units (OCD).
Also when the 90 day detail is over look for a new school unit to take over in August via Federal funding.

Not sure about the anger towards Gross. I have worked for him in the past and he has always been a very fair guy as long as you do your work. As far as the OT issue I'm a little confused. As an exempt member you aren't allowed OT as I recall. From what I have been told he worked on a movie set while on furlough but that money should have been payed to him by a check written out to him by the movie production company and not the city. Something does not make since here and maybe thats the true problem.

I ask you what entails running a district? AS a working cop, she always looked out for her troops. ALways maintained an open door policy and talked to you with respect, not like a "blue shirt".
What else do you want?

FACT: You will NEVER hear a working copper that worked for her, ever whisper anything bad about her in anyway. TOP NOTCH BOSS!!!!

Where do work cowboy? You have my vote for a seat on the NEW and IMPROVED predictive analysis unit. You seem to know about districts are worthy of police facilities.

Crime in 013 is not what it used to be over the last couple years, but it's not to far from 014 and defenitely right on par with 012.

Your entitled to your opinion but in my opinion
your wrong! Many of us feel that the department has become a laughing stock due to the merit system. Most of the current Exempt's were also merit Lieutenants, Sergeants, Detectives. If you read the comment sections, many of these people never worked the streets for any real period of time. They get hired, complete probation, get a choice spot, get promoted, get a choice spot, get promoted again, it's ridiculous. The problem is, is that we know the truth about these people, we know if they worked or not or if they've simply been taken care of their entire careers. It's not about being decent or nice in and of itself. I know a lot of nice, good, hard working police officers who will never get the opportunity to go beyond the rank of sergeant due to political bullshit involving merit promotions. It's not only unfair to the average copper, it's criminal. I know that the current clouted few would love for us to sit by and quietly allow the current system to flourish and not bring attention to the subject but sorry.

Lest you forget, this is a blog, a place to vent, and discuss our day to day concerns. If you can't handle the truth and it upsets your sensibilities, feel free to stop coming back, because frankly, were not going away any time soon.

Oh shut up. You only show your ignorance. Penny is a captain and is assigned as an inspector. It was in writing. Learn where information is posted. And as was agreed to in the last contract with the captains, all field inspectors will be of the rank of captain. Lieutenants will now only do audits, they will not be field inspectors. Go learn something before you open your mouth.

A complete review is occuring of all exempts and what their functions are. Also another 90 day detail to patrol level (MSF and TRU) will be occuring in MAY. These 90 detail spots are to be filled from insdie units and investigative units (OCD).
Also when the 90 day detail is over look for a new school unit to take over in August via Federal funding.

So what you are saying is that there is going to be a "SMOKE AND MIRRORS TOUR 2011" LOL any idea what units are going to give up the bodies? Or will they go from the same units that gave up officers last year......mass transit gave up 12?? narcotics 8 ? airports 10? traffic and maui gave up some to0.

-----------------------------------
35th St mole
Yes something like that. MSF and TRU will be losing people and being sent back to the Districts. Then the 90 day wonders will be detailed just like before. The goal is to beef up the Districts while still maintaining the moble force of TRU and MSF for the summer. Like you said smoke and mirrors.

Where do work cowboy? You have my vote for a seat on the NEW and IMPROVED predictive analysis unit. You seem to know about districts are worthy of police facilities.

Crime in 013 is not what it used to be over the last couple years, but it's not to far from 014 and defenitely right on par with 012.


ummm exactly. 012 is sleepy hollow and 014 is a bunch of hipsters and yuppies. 014 is also dead now. 012 is really dead and let me assure you, 013 is slower than 012 and 014. stop trying to act like you work in the mean streets of 013 cowboy. the horners have been gone for a while.. the last 5 years of the horners were dead quiet also. 013 has some high priced housing and may be "close to 014" but is not 014... dont try to convince us 013 is a big busy rockin district... You dont need to justify your existence. we all know that 013 is nonsense now. Im actually jealous... I would kill to work in 013, it would be great to get out of the ghetto and relax there. if you work there then be happy and proud to work there because dealing with the ghetto nonsense gets old. but dont claim you work in the sh*t..you dont

Gross is a Jag Bag, Mass Transit was the greatest place to work when Sullivan was there then Gross came in and fucked it all up. ask any old timers that were there

Sorry, the only reason you liked Sullivan is because he didn't care what anyone did; Gross wanted people to do their job, not hide in Ira"s all day long....

Doing another 90 day detail to TRU and MSF would be a mistake. 80% of them did nothing. Instead send them back to districts and put them on beat cars where they will be forced to at least answer calls. Make them rapid response cars and just keep hitting them with jobs.
When they went to TRU and MSF all that was expected out of them was they were told to stay in the area they were assigned. Useless!!! The bosses there couldnt force them to do anything, at least in on a beat car the dispatcher will be happy to assign them jobs.

Martin really must have went to bat for you and taken care of ya. She is nothing special as a boss. I'm guessing you have been taken care of by her because you are taking the time to defend her. I still work in 013 and am happy she is gone. Didn't do nothing for anyone unless you kissed her fanny.

Filled out a bunch of times to work movie detail & nada! Even told them I was on furlough last year and nada. Who do you have to blow to get a day on that detail?
I'll apply again when they place the dates on my e mail account but it's like the same odds as hitting the lotto.

Original 153... R u the same poster as 12:17? Never said 013 was rocking and rolling. Just pointed the fact that we have our share of urban free loading creatures.

With a name like Original 153, I would assume you would be out of the ghetto and have offered your expertise in some specialized unit, or have the time on the job to be working in a decent distict.

Oh wait, u must be the type who has jumped on some good paper and walks around like the dept. is indebted to you. I have a parachute in my closet just your size. ASSHAT!!!.. lol.

You obviously have not "WORKED" in 013. Which is probably why you have nothing good to say. Besides, enlighten/suprise me with your experience in 13.

"Didn't do nothing for anyone unless you kissed her fanny"

WTF do you want? An ass massage for all that time you spend sitting on your ass.... lol. Here is a piece of advice for u.... take a step inside real world. It's not all about you buddy.

Here is a quote you can ponder on while you think of a response.

gotta love the constant battle between coppers who constantly compare who is in a busy district versus who is in a slow district..every district has its problems and everyone knows where the ghetto districts are....how about showing each other a little respect since we all put on the same uniform every day and go to work not knowing if today could be our last day here whether we are in 11 or 16...how about a little less hate and supporting one another instead of trying outdo each other...we are own worst enemy...

Its always funny hearing how most "bosses" are or were decent guys! When you make 150K + and you know deep down inside you are a "putz" most will become somewhat of a decent guy! I love when some on here say "He just wants you to do your job!" Ask most of them how they got where they are and they will tell you with a straight face, "I did the job!" I think they meant, "blow."

Gross is a great guy. Everyone is pretty quick to villainize him. I wonder if they would react the same if it was not recorded and it was just rumor? How many police in the country, if recorded on duty would be in hot water for something? In the grand scheme of things, this is insignificant.

To all you Stone bashers in 013, let me ask you a question. What is it about him that annoys you so much? What has he done or does that upsets you so? Has he implemented a quota system? Has he denied you time due? Is he a tyrant like some of the previous watch commanders who have disgraced 013 and the CPD? What is it? Has he ever asked anyone to do anything other than their job? Does he demand a mover a day, 1 parker a day, 2 bus checks? Anything remotely close to the above?. I didn't think so. What he hads don e is ask you to do your job. Nothing else. How is it that a Police Officer can expect to ride around all day and not produce a single thing and survive. And don't tell me your too busy. We are talking about 013. How is it that an Officer does not think he has to possess a mover book? Stone may have his faults but all he has asked any of us is to do our job.

What's really, really interesting here, SCC, is that during the awful J-Fled years, Sneed barely had an uptick on what was going on in the CPD. She basically had to find out about it by reading whatever 3M allowed to be released, or spoon feed to Spielman or Main. Now that Hillard is back, Sneed seems to be in the know about every change being made, and even faster than this blog can hear about it...kinda makes you wonder, hmmm?

3/22/2011 12:46:00 AM
Nope. I don't wonder at all. 3M is Sneed's new source. Think about it.

sounds like you are an ass kissing moron. Yes! , he is no different than previous WC's who disgraced the 13th and CPD, and like the other post , it's not a quota system? but ITS A HUMPER jag !!
and guess what, if no one does anything for the whole shift/tour then it's because it's slow why are you concerned? Theres nothing going on. everyones busy doing NOTHING. Trying to make something out of nothing?
After reading the posts , it appears it's more about not liking that Lt. not about what he asks or does not ask of anyone. So if you're trying to defend his actions, you MUST BE AN ASS KISSER ,which doesnt seem to be the norm in that 13th dist. GFY and that Lt S also
