Cell Phone Arrives

Word from the Districts:
  • ...went into work today and guess what was sitting in the Lt's office? If you said a bright, shiny, brand spanking new cheap ass flip phone marked [...] Watch Operations Lieutenant Phone, you win a prize!

    These basic little numbers were delivered to all the districts and the BOP says they are for use by supervisors in the field. ONE cell phone.

    [...] On the days when there is no field lieutenant, a sergeant is supposed to get the phone.

One whole phone.

Anyone knows what happens when there are, say, two shootings? Happens all the time lately, even up north. Running the Department on the cheap again. Don't expect any quick information bosses - CPIC and all their house-mice are going to have to wait for the information.

Good. Sounds like the perfect solution.
Now, start adhering to the general order that says you won't use any unauthorized electronic devices, people. Break your addiction to the smartphone.

You mean a lieutenant might actually have to hit the street and supervise sergeants and officers in the field and respond to calls. I can't believe that will happen. Say it ain't so. What will really happen is the sergeant will be given the phone to use, even when there is a lieutenant on the sheets. Well that's if the WC and lieutenant don't split the shift.

If you don't get to a station, business, hospital, or any public phone at this point, you are a moron. They want to fuck you. Don't give it to them. Call the station? No problem. I'm heading to a city building to use their phone.

This could bring back the call box!

Funny how this priest is protected by his "contract" with the about non-Catholcs have a say in how you run your church, father? And the code of silence to protect abusive priests?

It makes perfect sense to me , seeing how on numerous occasions in the district I work in that ONE supervisor is the only supervisor working that watch. This city is a fucking joke from the top to the bottom this place is so fucked up it's beyond repair.

Those little phones are great. I have several, most still in the box. Pay for them with cash (Mine were on sale at Walmart for $5.00 apiece). Buy a Tracfone calling card, also for cash, $20 for 60 minutes, and activate the phone you want to use under whatever name suits you. If you 'lose' it so what? Privacy is nice.

Why would you use your personal phone for official business? Do they pay your bill or provide the phone? Your paid by the hour, go find a city or public phone.

They have had these for years, no one ever took them out cause they were crap. I here all merit Sgt, LT, exempt rank will get gold ones to distinguish clout protected and all phone calls and messaging will be deleted immediately. All cheater test takers will get blue ones that will have a robot to answer pre-programmed questions. Special Ed will have a phone that Rahm can change to listen mode, then automatically moves Special Ed lips to sound and act like he is talking sense. Jamall will have a Gold Silver phone with apps to call the mayor and special Ed during trying times.. All phones will have a Father Faker App for prayer and guidance to be politically correct.

If your station has those parking meter phones, supervisors should make use of those too so one is on the scene of an accident. Most districts got 4-6 of those about 18 months ago

Nothing new.
W/C & Lt cellphones were provided way back in 1998 or so.
Was part of the "touring the DOC" program when they were out and about an couldn't be reached by radio.
It's more likely they switched the outdated analog Jitterbugs and found a cache of digital Motorola DynaTACs from a connected fourth party supplier.
What's old is new again. Always Reinventing the wheel.
You GO Special Eddie !

Meanwhile, one of the last actions NYPD Cmsnr. Bill Bratton was to equip ALL on duty officers with a smartphone. He cited the assassination of the 2 officers after the Baltimore riots since the offender was headed to NYC to voice his anger over freddie gray. An APB could have prevented the slaughter of 2 patrolmen. Another example of the piss poor CPD leadership which now wants to examine a privately owned phone instead of supplying them. And Deano is still doing nothing to defend an officer's right to his privacy on his personal phone. VOTE DEANO OUT IN MARCH!

Is there a rotary dial on the phone?

Hate to say this but in the burbs the brass and a good chunk of working cops have cell phones. They actually help in solving crimes. What a novel idea!

I'm waiting to see if they are old 2G phones and whose contract they have. AT&T wants to be done with 2G by 1 JAN 17.

On another note, any youngster with good eyes, take a look and see what the expiration date on your taser cartridges is - don't know if they have replaced them all citywide or not, but my understanding is 'most' of them are/were expired.

Don't give your phone number to the states attorneys!
You see the list of officer who are currently under the bus?

When your friends at the STATES attorney ask you can I have your cell number in case I need to reach you, JUST SAY NO!

Have them call the desk SGT and tell them to write a message on a piece of paper and put it in your mailbox.

Don't use any City email. Tell them to mail it.
Got security video? mail it
Do you as an officer receive a bonus for being fast and efficient? Just act like every other crappy government office slow and dumb...
