IAD Lieutenant Blows Positive?

We had no idea that the people running the Drugs Testing unit had already begun taking breathalyzer samples from people. Then we asked around and found out it starts for blue shirts next year but supervisors have been tested since the beginning of the year.

No idea if this rumor is true or not, but it would certainly call into question a lot of investigations if a higher-up in such a sensitive spot was in the bag during working hours.

TRUE- Sgts. Lts. AND Captains will be tested randomly as usual except now it will be the peepee test and a breathalizer. one of our Sgts just did it last week Monday and showed me a copy which he recvd after blowing for his records. P.O.'s will be phased in next year.

If someone has a problem, hopefully they contact the EAP.

If the person does not contact the EAP, then I would suggest the individual OBTAIN A HOME BREATHALIZER! Obtaining a home breathalizer will allow individuals to administer a test in the privacy in their homes to themselves.

Follow the orders Officer. No alcohol four hours prior to the start of your shift. If you can't do that then you really ought to think about your drinking. If the booze is a problem, there's always LSD. (BTW LSD is only traceable from a spinal tap. I'd love to see the the Dept. try to get a court order for that. Man.)

They don't do enough drug/alcohol testing on this job. They should do a massive test of everyone inside of one month and then do a second massive test one month later.

They can't say it doesn't go into effect until next year because it's been in effect since the beginning of this year for supervisors (Sgts and Lts). It may get swept under the rug another way as always. Remember the rules are different for supervisors. Shhhh

Yes, as far as testing. The white shirts random test along with blue shirts who discharge their weapons both must p-test and blow. IAD Sgt came to station for both after I had a weapon discharged. During the test performance he was answering questions about the GO and testing. Called FOP but they didn't seem to care because they never return both my calls concerning testing after downing a dog. Thankfully GOs are online and that's what the GOs make clear is happening.

Sorry folks, this is true. All supervisors called for random drug are required to blow now, and PO's next year.
I am told if you blow under .02, nothing happens. Between .02 and .04, you are sent home for the day, and must blow the next day to come up under .02. If you blow above .04, they strip you. However, it is not delineated anywhere what the procedures are from there. Once you are stripped, they dont have anything on what you have to do to get back to active duty. Rumors of mandatory alcohol counseling are out there, but cannot confirm that.
Yes, watch how much you have at a party the night before work. Dont come in if you are buzzed or hung over. Not worth the risk.

Supervisors HAVE been required to submit to breathalizer since January 1st, it is administered when you go down for random drug analysis. A couple Sgts have been dinged on the breathalizer this year. If you blow over .004 for first offense you are sent home without pay, then subject to follow-up breathalizer. If a second offense occurs it is a cr# and the disciplinary process starts. P.O's will be tested starting this January (2012)

How about admitting that a lot of what you think you know about this Department is rumor and flat out bullshit. A lot of it started right here by people who like to watch everyone jump through the hoops and retell it.

All of the people pointing fingers should be using this as a learning example: If you happen to stay up too late drinking, then get called for random at the start of your second watch tour, you will very likely encounter a life changing problem!

If things were "swept away" as easily as you think, he wouldn't be stripped right now.

If he is stripped and a LT in IAD then its very possible that any cases he has had contact with are now compromised. A good atty will question whether or not he was under the influence while reviewing cases for those under him and if he acted with sound judgement.
This now added to the IAd Agent thjat was stripped in Jun for residing in Park Ridge are just the tip of the ice berg. There have been many at IAd that have done investigations to sustain rather than to find the real story. Its time to dump a few people over there and not only losses but a few of those do nothing Agents, sgts, etc...

Serious answer. When the numbers for positives start to climb, people who tested clean recently are called back again (and sometimes a third time) to help bring the numbers back in line.

Don't want bad press on those numbers climbing, now do we? When I got called down a third time (I'm so boring, I never even touched the stuff in college), my lieutenant told them to find someone else to bring their numbers back down and he refused to send me the third time in three weeks.

Now, if there's a confidential on you and they believe they have good intel on you, your 'random' tests might not be so random.

Kind of like a certain s/w side guy who used to have parties on three day weekends, with little piles of coke laid out as 'favors'. But that was twenty years ago and I'm - ahem - sure that kind of thing doesn't happen anymore.

The real cover up is that he drove a company car to work.

Officer Tool.

No one is fucking with you. No one dropped a dime on you like that clueless ass respinded. Citywide p.o's are being sent down within weeks of taking a piss test. In my district six p.o's went down within a week of each other. I think Rahm is having everyone randomly tested. We are all clean right? So then none of us has to worry so let them send you. Thats one or two less calls you have to take.

It is so hilarious watching the morons on here scurry and pontificate as if they have any idea what the hell they are talking about.

You don't know about it, so it was obviously "swept under the rug".

How about admitting that a lot of what you think you know about this Department is rumor and flat out bullshit. A lot of it started right here by people who like to watch everyone jump through the hoops and retell it.

All of the people pointing fingers should be using this as a learning example: If you happen to stay up too late drinking, then get called for random at the start of your second watch tour, you will very likely encounter a life changing problem!

If things were "swept away" as easily as you think, he wouldn't be stripped right now.

AMEN!!!
I wish some of you would just READ your contracts, the Rules and Regulations or the freakin' Daily Bulletin!

The lieutenant fucked up and now he's stripped and going to pay the price. He'll never go back to IAD that's for sure, and I'm also sure he's humbled by the entire proceeding. He'll take a suspension for sure but won't be fired.

To the nimrods who go around saying IAD sets up coppers...you sound like pookie and mookie who say coppers set them up and shoot them for no reason. Get real.

No one wins in this one, except maybe the lieutenant in the long run because he may be forced to get himself some help.

Now wait a second here! Sound like pookie ? You mean good hard working coppers have not had cases PUT on them by some IAD folks? If you say no you are one of 2 beings: never a worker or one of those IAD folks!
Go over to call back and actually sit down with some of those guys/gals that have been there for 2,3,4 years and hear what kind of beef they have. Are there good people at IAd, yes yes yes. Are there bobble-head yes I will screw that person for you boss types there,yes,yes,yes...Dont know the IAD LT but the guy who recently was stripped for residency has made his career and in fact brags about how getting coppers is his lot in life as he puts it. If you need more example of this please feel free to sit down and chat...
Hopefully things are changing slowly but surely and cases are being invetigated to get the entire picture and not invetsigated to sustain by failing to interview witnesses that help out the copper,etc...Get the picture ?

IAD reacts to complaints. Are/were their overzealous investigators? Sure, just like there are/were overzealous coppers, but by and large IAD reacts to complaints and it's either there or it isn't. Just like the overwhelming majority of police are doing their job, following rules and playing fair, the overwhelming majority of IAD is the same. Bad apples get theirs in the end....as it would seem in the cases you mentioned.

I wish there wasn't a need for IAD, just like I wish there wasn't a need for police in general, but there is.

Overzealous IAD guys stay in place and for that the only people to blame are their bosses who know that they are bad apples and were probably never the real police. If they have to eat them then they should give them cases that are petty and should not be able to hurt the hard working guys/gals.
For this I directly blame the bosses in IAD. When they finally get called on this, they cant say I didnt know. They will pay off settlements in a punitive nature because of their direct knowledge of what the problem is yet they didnt act to rectify this.

Anyone on the (SHORT LIST) ready to Bash Chief Rivera, must be a complete DOG and have their own issues...

No one is bashing Rivera. He has always been a working policeman. He must however undo some of things that have been done to many hard workings guys/gals. He knows who his nit wits are and should get them out of his unit.
He could start by getting rid of the only Weis hack left-Cmdr Klimas. Rahm wants to see how to save money-here is a way!! No need for a Commander in IAD. 100k plus for what???

If you drink so much that you will probably blow positively in the morning from a previous evenings drinking, bypass EAP and go right ahead to AA.

They'd be better off to ask with a show of hands, the people who do NOT have a problem with alcohol. There might be a couple hundred. Then just treat (medically) the rest accordingly.
