Nice Background Check Ladner

Good thing she's weeding out the cops kids, the military veterans, and psych-disqualifying every applicant who doesn't meet her personal criteria. Wasn't Hilliard's firm supposed to be do these instead of Department investigators? Or didn't that ever happen?
  • great job in screening applicants. A P.P.O. in 006.. yes, I said a P.P.O. has just been stripped and more than likely will be facing charges after he was found stealing over 2000 dollars at a domestic. After pressure and a beef was put in the kid folded and went to the watch commander to give the money back... too late kid. Since he is a P.P.O the city is moving for immediate termination so he wont be stripped for long. IPRA has the case and is giving it to the states attorney for charges. Oh by the way, Ladner if your reading this kid didnt have any family members on the job in the past and is not in the military. So much for your idea of not giving coppers kids a chance because they might end up bad cops...
Sometimes bad eggs slip through - we've all seen that. But those usually surface after a few years of working the street and figuring out how much smarter they think they are than the people they arrest, never realizing that someone else, at some time, tried the same bullshit. This must have set some sort of land-speed record though.

Don't get me wrong, Ladner is indeed a tool...but what about the psychological exam? The polygraph? This rookie's instructors in the Academy? Can't just drop this bad apple in Ladner's bucket. Lots of other parts of the pie could have, or maybe should have spotted this bad apple in the crate. She's no more accountable for this goof than anyone else, and probably even less so.
I'm thankful he's been picked off early in the game, before he could have done us some real damage. Money's been recovered (apparently), and it won't take long at all to send this asshole packing, plus he will stand little if any chance of being able to sue and get re-hired, as is so often the case.

There are no more "background" investigators with the CPD. It's not Hillards firm doing the backgrounds it is some former Detective and his patner that formed a firm (I can't remember the name)

And no, not a speed record for a recruit to get in trouble and be fired. There have been others that have slipped thru the cracks and been caught while still in academy. It happens more than one thinks.

SCC. You didn't hear, they brought all the detectives back to the the HR department to do the investigations. While the city still has a contract with an outside firm, they don't send them any work. So once again all the bodies sent out to the districts and areas are all back. And the contracted firm is getting paid and doing absolutely nothing. And it is not Hillard's firm. That is a total rumor.

it is not all that hard to get past a typical background check.

it is not unheard of for people with TS/SCI clearances to turn out to have skeletons in their closet that never showed up on background checks and they are far more strenuous than typical pre-employment checks for CPD.

I used to do pre-employment background checks (not for CPD). I can tell you from experience that a number of guys who got hired after I cleared them turned out to have some skeletons I missed.

One would think that these days it would be harder to hide that kind of thing but you have to really dig and someone who is good at hiding their past can often sneak past.

I remember that. I believe the FTO was named Velez and it was a child support warrant that didn't show up during the background. The PPO got to sit in a police car for a few minutes at any rate. That was a good FTO, always name checked his recruits under the guise of showing them the computer.

The first time this happened it was Mike Bennon (RIP) who was the FTO. He was showing the kid how to use the computer in the station. Ran the kid's name and a parking ticket warrant popped up. The only mistake was instead of locking his ass up right there they called the academy. Low and behold, the academy was able to work out a "plan" and the kid stayed on. Only wish I could remember the kid's name. The second time it happened with another FTO they locked the kid up and faxed the prints down on the old roller machine. Then the academy was called. Bye Bye to that one.

I prefer the story about the 013 PPO that was with his FTO who got shot. Made up some wild tale about dragging him to safety thinking the FTO was done for. PPO actually left him and ran. FTO survived and the story came out. I believe the PPO is still on the job. Anyone remember this guy?

Sometimes you have to accept things for what they are. The people who are at the academy are incredibly dumb. The instructors who are assigned to IDQC can neither read nor comprehend easy general orders and legal statutes. (Even after someone explains things to them, they are still clueless.) And these guys are in charge of implementing policies and training. The people at the academy could not run a car wash. You cannot cure stupidity.
