Superintendent Names Leaking

  • The African-American public safety director of DeKalb County, Georgia, outside Atlanta, has emerged as a front-runner to replace fired Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy, sources said Thursday.

    Cedric Alexander is a high-ranking official in the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives and holds a doctoral degree in clinical psychology and a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy.

    His resume includes stints as police chief of Rochester, New York, deputy commissioner of the New York State Police and security director for the Transportation Security Administration at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Golly, another outsider. It's almost like the past decade of incompetent "merit" promotions have driven away anyone actually capable of advancing through the ranks. If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about this Department at the moment, nothing will.

How can we get past race issues if every time you turn around someone is labeling people? How about just the best person for the job no matter what race, color, creed, or gender? Smh

If anyone has heard about T. Dart running for mayor, just comes to shed light on why they are emptieing the jails. This makes sense now, let's put as many families of criminals out to the voting polls by looking and a making Dart look like he is for the people, and then come down hard on crime after he wins the mojority of votes for mayor. Sounds brilliant Tom.

We need someone who KNOWS the neighborhoods, the laws , the gangs and the way clout works . Another outsider, more anger from within the rank and file and another disastrous superintendent.

I'm sorry, my questions regarding Mr. Alexander include this:
1) From Chief of Police (entire police department) to deputy commissioner state police (large state police force)
2) From deputy commissioner state police (large state police force) to a security director of an international airport
3) from to a security director of an international airport (major airport) to a public safety director of a county in Georgia.

Having a Masters Degree in in marriage and family therapy doesn't excite me unless he's on the streets with patrol dealing with some of the screwed up families we deal with and can use his clinical psychology on them.
This guy seems to be degressing in his jobs, going from an important chiefs job in a fairly large New York city, to a director job in a county sheriff department.
I see large RED FLAGS here!
As for being a "high-ranking official" for an Executive Organization, that seems to me as being a "deputy chief" among other "deputy chiefs" and deputy's in an organization.
But hey, I'll look on the bright side of this. When he comes in and makes all these glorious changes to "our" police department from his "vast" experience from "all" his past jobs, the City of Chicago will STILL have a soaring crime rate because NO ONE wants to deal with the REAL ISSUES going on within our city and around the country, the 600 pound gorilla in the room!

The truth is, Clarke isn't qualified to run a large, municipal PD. On top of that, he would be far too busy here dealing with the
pile of crap that is waiting to be dealt with to engage in his favorite pastime, schmoozing with the Fox News hosts about subjects he knows little about. No way would Rahm stand for him being Fox News shill for every viral issue in law enforcement. Clarke is better off staying right where he is, as a man of privilege in a county sheriff's dept. with (apparently) little day-to-day real responsibilities.

I think it was in D.C. Blues, by Tucker Carlson, where it was discussed how, at some past time NYC Police promoted (or hired?) strictly in rank order from the test. The article recounted how many of these cops went on to be deputy chiefs, one or two became the commissioner, etc. In short, it was an extremely effective way to make cops. Go figure.

That's what the public wants right. The numbers are all out there. What's the problem. Put the transfer list out. How about a 90 day detail say June July and August. Hell we gave them the ISR program not let's give them the black Supt. and the transfer all the officers according to race and finally crime will cease to exist. Seriously at this point Rahm should do it and then ask these people, "what do want now?"

Look for Escalante to remian in place till the end of the year (at best) then REPLACED BY E.J. with B.W. going to Chief of Patrol. Rahm is fighting for his political career and only moving these pieces around gets him the support he'll need for a 3rd term plus giving his competitor candidates options outside of City government (ala a certain light skinned alderman challenger leaving ubruptly to go work for the private sector).

Put an outsider in and you have a year to get your feet wet, two if you are McCarthy. You couldn't correct Garry on the smallest thing. He was too hard headed. Best case this guy has an open mind, but it still takes a long time to get the feel of a completely new town.

The last two losers have done irreparable damage to the Department. Each tried to push his own version of policing and neither bothered to get any input from anyone that knew the city and the Department, just the Mayor. Maybe the Mayor IS the problem, maybe.

You want to make a statement, Rahm? Hire Tina Skahill, a black female. You get your political advantage, but not at the expense of your Department. She is book smart and knows her way around the Department. She has street credibility for the rank and file (couple of shooting under her belt), but can navigate the politicians.

Hire an outsider again and you make the same mistake a third time. You will look like the fool we all believe you are.

Look at what GW did with the Lt test. IAD pulls a number and then the Deputy calls and tells him they are coming to his next study class. Number killed, let's put all the IAD Sgts in the next Lt class. Christ half of the people in the Lt class were merit Sgts. And No they couldn't have studied harder and scored that much higher in a smaller pool of candidates. In a long history of bad promotional tests this one was the worst.

But right now, I doubt any of them would want the job. All another outsider will do is fix things that aren't broken, and change things for changes sake. We had enough of that with McCarthy. He destroyed this department and ran off every experienced exempt who had the balls to challenge him and tell him he was wrong. We need a Superintendent who has been the REAL police to restore this department back to an agency that we as officers can take pride in. And who won't collectively throw us ALL under the bus as soon as a individual scandal or act of misconduct occurs. "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results."

You want your $105 back? Ask Maryet Hall-Wysinger, the tickets were originally $125 and she was excited she was able to get them to $105. How was that open bar with the cheap liquor??

1.) Make the balloon payments to our pension.

2.) Get our money back from Davis/Vanecko.

3.) Makes no difference who is selected.

4.) Chalkie's working out hard. He can't wait for the season kick-off in May.

What the fuck is wrong with people. We have gangs organized and killing people, selling drugs and we don't take them down? pathetic. Good luck to a new super. Without public support, legal support, resources and a will to take on these gangs you coppers may as well get used to a career writing tickets and responding to domestics. what a fucking society we live in. our state is run by criminals so they are lax.

. . . You want to make a statement, Rahm? Hire Tina Skahill, a black female. You get your political advantage, but not at the expense of your Department. She is book smart and knows her way around the Department. She has street credibility for the rank and file (couple of shooting under her belt), but can navigate the politicians.

Hire an outsider again and you make the same mistake a third time. You will look like the fool we all believe you are.

2/27/2016 01:59:00 PM

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

While I like Tina as a person I don't think that she is the best to be Supt.
Yes, she is well educated. Yes she is an Atty. But Tina is out of touch with the street officers. Hasn't bothered to try to see what anyone working the street is going thru. She hasn't seen the outside of an office in over 25 years! Don't believe me, check where she has worked for the past 25 years. In the early 90's she stared with the CAPS movement and hasn't been outside a building since then.

This Dept. needs a leader that will lead from the top down and the bottom up. It's supervisors, all of them, need to be accountable for the actions of their subordinates. THREATS WON'T WORK! How about some of these gold braids start getting their asses into a squad with beat officers in 007, 003, 004, 011, 010, 015, etc., leave your driver at home. Go be the third man on their car and you do all the paperwork. You want street cops to make street stops and do that stupid ISR, go do some with those street cops. See what they are really doing out on the street. See what they are really dealing with. Then come up with real solutions on how to curb crime in this hell hole.
Bottom line is that the only people being held accountable for the shootings and crime in this city are the street cops! Not the jags that are committing the crime, not the police bosses who sit in their offices bitching about it.

Here is an excerpt from a story about Cedric Alexander who is believed to be a front runner for the job.
Inroads in Georgia

In 2013, Alexander took his talents to another trouble spot, DeKalb County, Georgia, where he assumed the role of police chief for 1,300 officers and 300 civilian staff. The police department suffered from low morale and high turnover, and the local government was rife with corruption — the county's former chief executive officer awaits trial for 14 felonies, including bid-rigging and kickbacks.
Again, Alexander took the opportunity to rid the department of leaders known for their bad influence and of officers known for corrupt behavior. He rewarded remaining staff with perks they had told him would help them feel better about their jobs, such as getting their first raises in seven years and tuition reimbursement for officers looking to expand their skills.
Last December, county leaders promoted Alexander to deputy chief operating officer for public safety. Now, the chiefs and directors of the county's five public safety offices, including police, report to him.
"It's a great group of people who have been on the job for a long time and are doing a dynamic job," he says. "Now, our goal is to develop a single vision and a more integrated way of operating" so there is no unnecessary redundancy among departments' roles and duties, for example.
While Alexander credits psychology and leadership training for giving him the tools to lead these transformations, he praises those who work for him for using those tools to get something done.
"All I am is the coach," he says. "The people who do the work are the ones who make all of these changes possible."

OT: My advice to newer coppers is to start your own biz. Get something going outside of Law Enforcement. I have 2 beach houses paid for and did it over 12 years and I am retiring at age 49 with 20 and out plus I bought 2 years military so I will be set. Even if the pension goes belly up I will still be okay with what I built up in the civilian world.

I really hope our pension woes are fixed but I know my business will survive for at least the next foreseeable 5 to 10 years plus I've saved just over $250K over the past 5 years with one more year to go before I leave. Too many guys put all their eggs in one basket. The CPD/law enforcement basket. I saw the pension issues long ago so I did something amazing; I started planning for its demise a long time ago and now I am set to where I can leave early (49) and have no retirement worries and I am not stuck on this job. I saw the writing on the wall just after I came on the job back in Oct 95. Veteran coppers told me to get either an education not related to being LEO or start a side biz. Well I listened and took it to heart. Others told me to study and get promoted but I learned I couldn't do both so did the biz instead. I know when I post here "I speak to deaf ears" as most coppers don't plan past the 1st and 15th. I might as well hit the delete key after typing.

I hired one CPD copper then he found out he was just under 50 on the SGT list and blew me off for damn near a year waiting until he got promoted so I hired another guy in this place and I moved on. (Still don't get that Billy) Again Billy put his "all" into this job. No plan B (with my company) for SGT Billy. Plan, plan, plan guys. I am sure Jason V.D. didn't plan on blasting a knife-wielding teen outside a BK and then getting fired and charged criminally. I do nothing at work and have 14 months to go. Get an alt plan guys. So many of you wake up each day a your 1 year goal, 5 year goal and 10 year goals are all the same. Go boozing after work and trying to bang the watch secretary.

Good luck Billy being SGT. When you do the math I can tell you how much $$$ you will make next year by looking at your pay chart. A biz, unlike this job, has no limits on how much you can earn.

Good luck with this job for you new people coming on. I was told it wasn't what it used to be when I came on back in Oct 95 but today? WOW. It really ain't what it used to be.

If Rahm plans on running for a third term, escalante will be your next boss. In all reality there are more Hispanics than blacks that vote. The blm movement is pretty small and a lot of them don't live in the city. Look at the last immigration March, close to ,250,000 people came to that one, blm on its best day may get 500.
We all know it doesn't matter whose here, as long as they keep pandering to aclu and other anti police groups, we don't stand a chance. But maybe that's what they want, we will be around 650 homicides by the end of the year. Maybe 100 might be legit victims, the other 550 are nothing but a drain on the city and government. The blm idiots don't see this or don't care so we will slow down crime by attrition.

I realize that when the city sold the "merit promotion scheme" to the federal judge, they stated that there are many good police officers out there who just cannot pass a written test but deserve to be promoted. Alderman Beavers ( convicted felon) was the loudest proponent for this promotion scheme. If that is correct,then why have at least three attorneys been merit promoted through the ranks? Tina is one, and everyone knows who the other two are. Seems as soon as they made merit lieutenant they quickly were given gold stars. Funny, the many and vast majority of people who made it to lieutenant on their own by studying their ass of never got close to that gold star or even to a unit commanding officer. Yes, people who were able to bake it through college and law school have to be merit promoted up through the ranks because they cannot pass a written examination based on department policies and state laws ? Is this correct or is it because they were just too damn lazy to spend their time studying when they were told in advance that they would be given the promotion? How depressing for those without clout who truly want to get ahead.

Very well stated. I might add that it is hard to find a decent job when you retire. You are old. Even if you are 50. You also go back to two weeks off, if you are lucky. The pension is not going to be enough. Highly advise staying for 29 and a day. Just not that many guys have properly prepared. Good luck.
