I must say this has been an entertaining blog to read but the war is over and time to move on to a new and better chapter of life. Having said that and leaving Dekalb in my past I wish the best for those of you that choose to remain.

I'm sure Jones will return and then appoint department heads again that refer to their white subordinates as "white bitches" and all will return to the DeKalb norm. Best of luck but I will no longer subject myself and family to such an environment.

Incidentally has anyone at DKPD been trained in a pit maneuver? I haven't in 20 years here yet WSBTV News is reporting today's car chase was ended with one. Guess it depends on who you are and who you are chasing whether or not you followed chase policy these days.

Vernon Jones comes back and re-hires Tebo! It wouldn't surprise me.

after reading anon 3:41 and 3:46.......Man.......i feel sorry for the Sergeants in Uniform.....gotta be tough getting up there and telling the troops (who have absolutely no future with the department) to get out there day after day and be proactive. To carry the flag, carry the torch.

Tough job, tough sell. As they bail left and right.

Chief OBrien I hope you are preparing now for a mass exit of Officers. Several have already left and the buzz around roll calls in every precinct is a heard of Officers are in the process of leaving as well. I am one of those Officers, thanks for the paid training and certification.

Haaaaa you clowns actually think Tebo would be rehired? Man what a bunch of lost souls. But dig this. He fought for each and everyone of us. Who's fighting for us now???? And the programs he started,they are still being used go figure. I bet you this. There are some nervous folks walking around this place.

What a great CEO!, he continued the tax and spend philosophy of Vernon as well as other great ideas and between the duo in a mere 12 years destroyed a great county.
Lost Dunwoody a major tax hit and allowed several other smaller cities to annex more of the tax base. Ran off most of the better businesses that did'nt get annexed. Destroyed the police and fire departments, not to mention jeopardizing the pension fund. Brilliant,! Brilliant! vote him again.....

To annoy 5:23 AM:
Yeah Tebo fought for us, like he fought to make our lives miserable. I know he loved to mess with me and tried to ruin my career. As he did to others too. If you want drink the Tebo Kool laid, do so, but keep that perp away from here. We already have enough aholes here.

It is becoming more than a little obvious that the DeKalb Democrats are going to offer only Ellis and Jones as the only viable candidates. As both have such poor records as CEO perhaps its time for a Independent or Republican citizen of good character and name recognition to step forward for the job.
For many DeKalb citizens, the thought of voting Republican is near sacreligious due to historic revisionism by the American academia, news media and Democrat party.
If you truly care about the future of DeKalb citizens, the country and your families, but have always voted Democrat because of your race, religion, sex or education. Here is a link to a book published in 1904, way before historic political revisionism was even thought of by academics, link is:
http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/37737/pg37737.html
Title is "History of the Republican party" by George Platt.

It will change your entire political thinking.

Something has got to change in DeKalb government. DeKalb citizens allowing the same political party to keep making the same mistakes over and over makes no logical sense.

The DeKalb Democrats are running the county into the ground, its time for another political party to step forward with some solutions for DeKalb's self-inflicted wounds.

My very opinionated opinion,

His butt would have been my stat for the shift. They don't look out for us so why bother helping them out.

Another red flag in the survey for Ellis is that over 46% of Black women and 48% of White men think its time for someone new as Dekalb’s CEO. These are two strong constituencies in a democratic primary and it shows Ellis has some serious work to do with those two groups, if he is to win reelection

The 46% of black women mentioned in this story were the ones smart enough to look over their husband's paid check stubbs and realize that the Dekalb County Gov presents no future for her family. The out right lies and thefts in the county government has removed all trusts that votting citizens have.

I guess they are thankful DKPD doesn't have cameras in units or they would be on news explaining their actions as well.

I agree with Ken, A one party county like this is like a hillbilly family tree that doesn't have branches! The serious problems become apparent very quickly!

I think Gwinnett and Dekalb are the two largest agencies in the state without in car cameras.

Dekalb was the first agency in the state to put MDT's in every car, why no cameras?

So when VJ comes back, will the county revert back to two different promotional stacks a black stack and a white stack? Will it ever be back to the most qualified person gets it?

Saw Sharon Barnes Sutton driving her BMW in Tucker on Saturday. Probably skipping out on her bill at Cap'n Ds.

Even Conyers PD requires officers to record 87s, etc and roll traffic cam on stops. Dekalb OBVIOUSLY has a lot to hide due to irresponsible hiring and retention.

What kind of agency and command staff lets a crooked commissioner go with active warrants then turns around and threatens their honest hardworking officers with disciplinary actions if they don't harass the public enough via citation revenue collection?

Why no camera's????.....HHHMMMM...let's seeeeeeee...this could be a few reasons why.....
1) We have officers clearing a sig 95 at night with thier tasers...because it has a small flash light built into the unit....
2) When the weapon does not go back together after cleaning...they use a hammer to force the parts back in.....
3) They put foil &/or vasline over the GPS units on the trunk...because they think radio can monitor thier movements
4) After eating breakfast/lunch/dinner(thier chioce)...they leave the trash and food in the unit for the next officer to share......
5) Hell......they can't even keep up with a gas key let alone a $3500.00 camera unit...even if it was self contained...jr. would still have to wear a micraphone....well??? I lost it when I was getting out of the car....yea....yea...that my story....This place is better than going to the circus....and they pay me to come to work.....say what you want....but being here 20+ years......as they say...you just can't make this stuff up.....
6) Last but not least...as most of them say......I'm just here to collect a paycheck!!!!

And you still want camera's???....let me know how that works out for ya!!!

Great question... Why doesn't DKPD use cameras? It would make investigating complaints much more accurate and allow supervisors periodic reviews after uploads at end of shifts for critique. Dekalb doesn't make any effort until forced to by law or lawsuit.
