Amazing Numbers....if True
The comment section was alive in the "Openings" post:
- 80 PAR forms in 011
- 120 in 005
- 150 in 003
No way to tell if any of those numbers are true without one of our regular readers at Personnel drops us a line, but damn, those are pretty strong indications that (A) people are sick of the ghetto or (B) people are sick of the supervisory structure in those locations. Even if the numbers given are half of what the comments claim, it's a big issue.
Now, a decent manager/supervisor would look at those numbers and ask themselves, "What is so wrong in my organization that people are bailing or attempting to bail out of these positions?" Of course, we have no decent managers or supervisors anymore, so a giant red flag like this will be ignored. People will continue to leave until such time as the Department can send a bunch of green kids who don't know the first thing about police work to go in and get into all sorts of trouble. Lawsuits, CR's, harassment complaints, more lawsuits, maybe even corrupt practices etc. and the city ends up paying out to lawyers and plaintiffs when it all could have been prevented via a simple analysis of the paperwork.
