What's this all about?

I'm surprised there were no whispers in advance. Kuddos to those involved.....

Looks like they are prepping for Ob's exit getting the one they want to replace him in charge of the largest part of the police dept and once again looks like the top cop will once again be a crook. The more it changes the more it stays the same

Well, hell the writing is on the wall boys.
First of all I wouldn't call Holmes a chief by any stretch of the imagination, the boy can barely spell his name. But this is nothing more than positioning him for the top spot when O'Brien is gone.
I don't even know what to say anymore, there is no hope left.

Not that surprising. Eventually the chief will retire. To find who will replace him, the first look will be to the current chiefs. As the current chiefs don't have a broad enough range of experience to run the whole department, they're being rotated so that they'll all have a breadth of experience necessary to make them competitive.
This happens quite frequently in large corporations that plan successions. Makes the worker bees uncomfortable but gives the chiefs relevant experience.

You guys don't have a clue what you're talking about! I talked to Assistant Chief Holmes earlier this week and this is what he told me, and I quote, "Mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmm ha ha ha. Mmmmmmm....mmmmmmm.mmmmm.mmmmmm. Mmm ha ha...mmmmmmm mmmmmmm... Ha ha ha mmmmm. Mmmmmmm...mmmmmmmm."

So there! You heard it here first!

Ah Anon 11:07, you got me all wrong dude. This don't be Latrice. This be some old head who's collecting a big fat pension check each month at 82.5 percent of my last 3 years of salary (averaged) and watching the circus from afar. Kind'a like sitting on the beach watching a ship slowly sink while the rats jump from the sides.

Speaking of the beach, I do have to give you credit of a fine job of describing my extra curricular activities.

Rock on O.B.!

There's only one comment on this page that's productive and not full of infighting, backstabbing, name calling and childish rhetoric. Thank you anon 10:35.

Productive doesn't matter in Dekalb County. Corrupt matters in Dekalb County. Holmes being the next Chief just should show what Dekalb really is. It is a county that promotes those who play by their own rules. It is a county that protects crooked cops and hides what they do (ex: Holmes investigating good cops for doing their jobs and protecting his secretary for having something to hide). It is a county where honesty and integrity are NOT valued and that goes all the way to the BOC. That's what Dekalb county is and will continue to be unless the citizens make a change.

I think you people should get to know someone before you make a negative statement about them. I can name a few people around here that think going to the FBI Academy takes the place of a degree. We should at all cost try and support each other and stop talking negative. The stuff going on now has been going on in Dekalb and surrounding counties for years and will continue. The best advise I can offer is you do the right thing and the rest will follow because Since Tebo left not one Chief has gone before the board asking for a raise. Yet you are content. Things that make you say Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

Anon 11:01,
That would be funny if I was 8 years old.

Most of the other posts on this thread are just scary because you are just speculating but you post as though you actually know something for a fact. Some of your theories seem so absurd to me that it is hard to take it serious. But if you truly believe what you are writing then post away I guess.

I believe there is a much more logical and accurate story behind all of the chiefs being moved around. It all centers on one Mike Yarbrough (AKA God). It appears that the majority of the precinct commanders and captains have finally had enough of worshipping at the altar of the church of Mike and Brian. Complaints have been filed and it is pretty serious stuff so they had to move God from his throne. All of the other movements were just a result of having to move the Lord and Master.

Obviously the one precinct commander who did not file a complaint is Brian Harris. This makes since as he and Yarbrough have been dating for about a year now. Of course I am speculating here and it could be nothing more than a wild theory. I could be wrong.

I will tell you one thing that is not a theory. I am happy as hell he is not in my division anymore and my friends in CID are upset at the very thought of the next COMSTAT!

Out of all the assistant chiefs listed, only one has the hair to be the ultimate chief..............

The only career aides are Bentley, Mooneyham and Padrick. All the rest of em have been up there less than 2 years. At least 3 of the aides were in CID about 10 years each. If CID is worried about Yarbrough, then remember this, he sure made Uniform alot easier when it came to the paperwork. Anybody want to go back to the old Use of Force form?????? Anybody??

Anonymous said...

Anon 7:11

He made the paperwork easier for the Uniform Division? Really? You have to be joking here. Well maybe easier for some Sergeants but the Captains and Majors are ready to shoot themselves. Except for Col. Harris I am sure (see post above). Does Harris work for the Chief or does the Chief work for Harris? I was always confused at the meetings.

As for the Use of Force reports you are absolutely wrong. Are the new forms easier? Of course they are. But are they better? No they are not. What sense does it make to have the person who used force against a suspect is the same person who writes the narrative about the use of force? Many supervisors just end up telling the officer what to write anyway. If all you want is easy maybe we should just stop doing the reports all together.

I am not sure but I believe that arrogant ass wipe Capt. Jean, who only answers to Yarbrough, is the one who came up with the new form. He is a Capt. right?

Well unfortunately I feel that the chains have now been removed from our ego maniac Major in CID..lord help us all here. At least with Chief Williams she kept him in line.

All I can say is I've enjoyed working the past few yrs for you Chief, and good luck in SOD.

The biggest problem we have now is that we have 2 people who think that they're the greatest...not sure if CID is ready for this. Maybe it's time for a transfer.

Ok this is all very interesting, but let’s look at what is really going on it is just your basic politics and the good old boy system working at its best in all colors. It goes all the way back to dick hand and how he handpicked his people to be around him and then burgess and so on and so on. But for those of you who want to get on here and just bitch and talk about each other and show everyone how dysfunctional the police department is and how we are very divided by race then we deserve what is happening to us. It is sad that we can’t even pull together to show the citizens that we care and that we are here for them but we are asking them to stand for us as well as showing the B.O.C. that we are one unified group.
No matter what we say or do we can’t change the fact that people will be put in place that do not deserve it or have earned it. It is very clear what is going on Chief Ob is a very short timer and they are preparing to put Dale Holmes in as new Chief. This is very scary but he can be the one in charge when this place implodes. I have reached the rank I want to retire at and I just hope I can make it to retirement I have given this department 24 years of my life and now I am worried that it was for nothing because the pension is at risk. I feel sorry for uniform division now and cid look out your chief is Mr. Perfect and he will tell you so and your major has the arrogant egotistical person I have ever seen. S.O.D. you lucked out your chief will do you right and support services you will be ok too.

Are you a female officer?? You sure sound like you only respect the females. Maybe you need to smoke a fatty in the back lot and ponder life some more. You sure don't sound like someone that really wants to be unified, as you then take picks on the two male assistant chiefs.
