Quotas Start Up

Anyone from the Saturation Team care to comment?
  • The Lt from saturation sent an email telling the sat guys that they are not bringing in enough activity , that traffic doesn't count, and if they want to keep their spot they need to do street stops and bring in ISRs.
It sure looks like the Sat Team is under the gun to come up with a number, or if you prefer, a "quota," in order to keep their spot.

We will donate an additional $25 to the Police Chaplains this month in the name of any member of the Sat Team who forwards us this e-mail, complete with headings and names. We will delete the names in the "TO" section, but we make no promises regarding the name in the "FROM" return address section.

whoever drafted that email must not have gotten the word. They don't want us to stop anyone anymore. They would rather have 4,000 black and brown shot and killed by each other than have one white police officer shoot a black mass murderer armed with a bazooka about to blowup a school bus

So? If guys wanna work let them work. I'm not a white shirt but I hate bullying by both sides. I don't like bosses demanding anything.. And I hate guys who tell other guys not to work or pressure or threaten them. If a guy wants to work let him work. His job, his choice

I was once heard a boss tell me don't worry about CR#'s, when they started looking at all the CR#'s he retired and is now in charge of streets and sand.

The morale of the story is you are holding the ball for your actions and they are gone in the wind......

F-U Lt! It must be easy to whip the horse when you're in the carriage in a comfy seat...tell you what, go out there and lead by example. Go out there with another white shirt and crank out one a day for the next couple months and show me how it's done, The ACLU is smiling in the camera like champions of the constitution, but behind the scenes, they would break every law available to make us look like garbage. Their careers and livelihoods depend on us going down.

The email does exist. I've personally read it on another copper's phone, but s/he was too scared to forward it to me for fear of retaliation if it got out and could somehow be shown that they 'leaked' it.

Just more proof that the Bossholes running this circus are completely out of touch, never been the police and/or don't give a rat's ass about the guys and gals that are smart enough to have gone into Self-Preservation Mode.

Something tells me that $25 won't be leaving your pocket, SCC. Too many suckholes and Shaky Jakes on the job nowadays.

Don't lose sight of what you want at the end of your career, not to mention staying out of shit while on the job.

If you insist on doing these ISR things, seriously consider that you could lose your job, end up indicted, and working as a greeter at Walmart.

IT IS NOT WORTH IT!

Stay fetal and stay safe. If you have any aggrandized ideas that you took an oath, take pride in your job, etc., you better realize it's all bullshit.

I highly doubt a lietenant put that in an email. They likely had a meeting and gave some bullshit pep talk followed with "well, this is an activity-driven unit. If you don't perform, we'll find someone else that will." In explanation, we will force POs to continue to jeopordize life, limb and career for a chance to not answer calls? I don't get it.

Obviously the Lt. was a meritorious pick somewhere along the way (Dic., Sgt., Lt., or all three). It’s apparent from previous postings here there is a P.O. from Saturation Team North who wants to follow in his foot steps. Some officers will do whatever it takes for the company.

But when Loevy & Loevy or some other scumbag law firm comes and sues your ass for a civil rights violation or the Justice Department indicts you where will this Lt. be? Will he have your back? No you’ll right at FOP asking for a lawyer. The union has been at roll call telling officers to do their jobs but use your heads. Any white shirt who tell you any different does not have your best interests at heart only his own.

Dear Area Sat Police Officers,

I'm a Sgt in a very busy Area South district. On a daily basis, there is under 10 ISR's generated for the whole district including the tact team. Nobody is doing them. Maybe he will dump you, but the Lt will have a hard time finding people to generate ISR's in mass. Guess he will have to find another way to make Commander then jeopardizing your livelihood. Fuck him.

True #1 is you, the most important person is you without you the family and everything else does not matter! Protecting you is done by you, the bosses are jokes, guarantee they will not be there after your the next "media darling" they will give statements "I never said to do that!" Been there how about this reality as you enter cold courtroom and you take the defendants seat and are sworn in then the big question "state your assets and liabilities" you understand this is real, and listening to crazy bosses makes it real real dumb!

That won't work.
Remember that part about following LAWFULL ORDERS?
You put that shit on an ISR, it's still on YOU, not your Sgt or Lt or Capt... YOU.
Someone "ordering" you to just go out and randomly violate peoples Civil Rights for the sake of numbers is not exactly "Lawful".

You know (hopefully) how to articulate "Reasonable Suspicion" in such as manner as to be comfortable that your ISR will stand up in a Civil Suit, then YOU do your ISR's when YOU NEED TO, not when some "Boss" who's looking for his/her next promotion off of YOUR work wants them!

So, to that I say:

R/O respectfully requests to be re-assigned to the XXX Dist.

Ok officer I will give you the 10 hour schedule in our specialized unit here. Your hours will be 2000 to 0630 and all you have to do is get 4 ISR's during your tour. What they don't tell you is they just imposed a quota and you are the tool that is executing the quota. When your ISR's find their way to Federal Court your supervisors will deny any such quotas exist leaving you to justify your actions on your own. Good Luck if you decide those 10 hour days and shit hours are really worth jeopardizing your assets,your job, your reputation, your family and your freedom. Many supervisors careers were made by sacrificing those below them who were willing to do what a supervisor was not. Real leaders earn respect because they lead by example. Many of our leaders have never made a felony arrest so what kind of example could you possibly be following?

Anyone working VRI is complying with a quota, enabling the city to keep from hiring the proper amount of officers needed to police this city and cutting their own throats in regard to their pension. They will be the first to start screaming when they realize they might not be able to collect their pension. Hope you are not spending any of that VRI money and banking it. It will probably get you through the first few years of retirement and then you'll have to start looking for a job.

First of all the saturation teams should be a 90 day detail, not a specialized unit where you do 20 years on. You want to be in Saturation and get numbers because you feel that it's going to get you promoted. Hmmm think again. Only the house mouse will get that meritorious promotion. Not you because your activity is great!
