I vote yes and so does the officers that work in my unit. Iam also willing to sign a petition to further support him. He is a class act and cares about people. It is through God I will pray that he becomes our next chief.

I liked O'Brien alot he is honest hardworking and a delight to be around unlike the last few chiefs, but he has been around all those undeservedly appointed chiefs his whole career and lets face I just don't think he has what it takes to stand up to them and put them in their place. We all know them real well and know they will do everything they can to undermined Chief O'Brien. I wish him well and look forward to working with him and hopes he can and does do away with all the idiot chiefs. ALL OF THEM must go......

He knows the department and every officer, he is what every officer hope's to have for a leader.

I vote yes to Bill O'Brien. I worked with Bill at South Pct. from 1987 until 1996. He was with the original Task Force in S DeKalb led by the late great then Sgt. Hugh Combee....I later joined the next task force- COBRA Unit.....Bill is a hard worker and street wise veteran that will be there for the officers.

I vote NO!

All of our Chiefs lately have been horrible. All of our Acting Chiefs have been much better! Leave him as Acting Chief! Give him the pay, the power, etc... But let's not tempt fate. Keep him as "Acting Chief" until he wants to retire.

Acting Chiefs: good.

Fully Fledged Chiefs: bad.

Who is the Acting Chief; Bill O’Brien or Rodney Rancifer? I am confused.

My only question about Bill..does he have the big brass ones to be a chief? To get rid of the idiots like Rancifer, Horner, etc? To put them in their place? He has never held a position that required him to cut a joker that needed to be cut. Can he do it if it needs to be done???

Uh...never held a position that reuqired him to have big ones? What do you call heading up Internal Affairs....a walk in the park?

Well I for one say hell Yea...make him the permanent Chief....

but...and this is a BIG BUT....he's got to cut those that need to be put back into reality....we all know who they are, ..hell Waddleton sure has made it her career to cozy up to who ever the Chief was so that she always landed on her feet....make sure I look good and ...do whatever I need to do.... the hell with my principles....I've heard that she's already shadowing Chief O'Brien...it's disgusting...

I trust that he would do the right thing if he's made the permanent Chief...because if he falls into that good ole boy scenario like they all have then his support will be lost....Bill you have alot of class and are truly a good leader....I would love to see you become the greatest Chief this Dept has ever had...

The one person who can turn this place around is already in place....make it permanent Mr. Ellis

Yes o'brien can handle this great task.his aide Sgt Padrick knows the real deal around this camp. He has worked cid,IA and Tucker precinct. He knows it sucks in the uniform division.He knows who are good workers and who are lazy.This department is light years behind in many things.
Let's change the uniforms, change the rank structure, make the officer have to f.t.o for a year before they can be mpo's. Everyone has to pitch in.Bill can make things happen he is a diplomat and has charm. However you need an enforcer, heavy a great assistant.

I think whittington should be a major. Troops respect him, he has a great team. Look at his watch. Everyone wants to work on his watch. Whittington and bank rocks. Why do their troops want to be productive and enjoy policing.

Chief O'Brien knows exactly whose doing their jobs at DKPD and will act accordingly. So you whiners and haters can quit posting your personal attacks against people you dont personally like.

I was in Waddleton's academy class. I see she hasn't changed a bit since 1987. "Still going with whoever can help YOU the most. Right Maleta?" Such a disappointment.

WOW loser, I hope she can call you tomorrow and help you feel better about your dead end career. Just in case she lost your number, please make sure you call her.
