Anyone with half a brain could see this rumor starting up:
- Over heard talk of a unit opening up second period, 120 Officers, 6 sgts and 2 Lt.s you need to be carbine and riot trained to apply. Going to be used as a misson team when things go bad, and lets face it in this city things go bad fast and often. Downtown wants a unit they can call up and dispatch to a busy district with zero notice, intereasting sounds like what sos and msf was for but since we have new bosses we will have a new name for the uint and new clouted know it alls in it.
Someone else one-ups the totals:
- There will be a new unit, but it will be closer to 180-200. All current sat and gun teams will be the members. They will try and break into 3 teams, 60-70 each, 1 sgt for each team and 3 Lts total, with an xo running the show.
In the meantime, following the disbanding of SOS, TRU and MSF, there are no openings posted for transfer for the fourth month of the past five. None, not a single opportunity to move. Which of course, leads us to agree with those who say volunteering for this unit is just begging to have it broken off in your ass a few years down the line. Chicago isn't hiring in any great numbers, Rahm wants a 9,000 man department at the maximum, and all the politicos have to do to staff a district properly is disband a platoon or two to somewhere far away from home and then close the openings.
