Chief Conroy asks for the Captain test to be delayed by a few weeks,  so a larger pool of candidates can be tested.................. Seems strange since only two candidates were added.

          Brookhaven Police receive a 21% pay raise

In a memo to council members, Brookhaven city manager Christian Sigman said the increased pay in other markets was crippling their recruiting efforts.
“This not only compromises our ability to attract new and experienced applicants, it threatens our ability to retain current employees,” he said. The Brookhaven Police Department employs 73 officers for its city of about 50,000 residents, Police Chief Gary Yandura told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He plans to hire six more officers this year. Yandura said the department has struggled to hire experienced officers. Thirty-four percent of the department consists of new recruits with less than two years of experience.  “We are looking to complement the young, less experienced officers with seasoned and tenured veterans,” he said. Yandura said the inexperienced recruits haven’t led to department performance issues, but he is hoping his next hires come with at least three years of experience. As part of the pay increase, the city increased the minimum and maximum salaries for the positions and adjusted pay for existing staff based on their history and experience, city spokesman Burke Brennan said in an email to the AJC. “So, an officer who was hired four years ago with 10 years of experience before he or she got here might receive a larger increase than an officer who has joined the force two years ago straight from the academy,” he said. The increase will be reflected in the first pay cycle in April. Brookhaven is the latest metro Atlanta jurisdiction to increase its police officers’ pay. In October, Atlanta City Council approved a 30 percent pay increase over the next three years for its police department. The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners increased public safety officials’ pay by 4 percent in November.

                                     2019 In-Service Training
       So In-service this year is not being held at training, and not being held in Dekalb county at all. If you attend In-service you will be driving out of Dekalb County to a college on the other side of Atlanta,  you will also be parking your vehicle in an un-secure parking lot and you will be required to wear you county weapon into the classroom.  I just hope no one's vehicle gets broken into or vandalized during training.

               Dekalb Officer Killed In Line Of Duty

On 12/13/2018 the Dekalb county police Department lost a brother in blue, Officer Edgar Flores was conducting a traffic stop when the driver of the car jumped out and ran from the vehicle. Officer Flores gave chase and was shot by the driver as he was in pursuit on foot. The suspect fled the scene after shooting Officer Flores. Other officers arrived on the scene along with a police K-9 unit and they were able to track the suspect and confronted him behind an abounded business.  The suspect was still armed and shot the police K-9 dog and engaged the other officers. The suspect was shot by the officers.
Officer Flores died at Grady Memorial hospital from the gun shots he sustained.
our hearts are broken and our prayers are with the family of officer Flores

The suspect died also

                               SIGNIFICANT PAY RAISE

Well the Dekalb county CEO and the board of Commissioners did it to us again. They made a huge media announcement and put on a show to make an announcement of a significant pay raise for public safety in Dekalb county.

They had the nerve to get in front of the media and announce a 4% pay raise to public safety, they said how public safety is a priority to them in Dekalb county.  
A significant raise would be the raise that the commissioners voted for themselves earlier this year which was 60% raise, or the pay parody raise that all captains and above received in the police department. That would be a significant raise for the police officers.
The very next day the city of Atlanta approved a 30% pay raise for the police officers which is a significant raise. I guess the city of Atlanta has a different definition of significant and appreciates public safety.

Retirees Shafted Again

We are getting paniced complaints from retirees that their health insurance premiums have increased by as much as 70%, or as much as $600.00 per month/$7200.00 per year. This is insane!

Retirees are bascily on a fixed income. If the county takes away $600.00 per month, that is devastating. We are talking car payments or mortgages going unpaid.

Why does this happen every year? What does the county gain by this? Where is our pension reps? Why are they not in front of this and keeping the retirees informed?
