Why doesn't channel 2 look into the theft by deception against all of the officers who paid for year books we never got? How long can it possibly take to put something like that together?

Anonymous said...

Persons of Dekalb County are trying to start their own City such as; City of Stone Crest and City of Briarcliff. The major complaint of the Citizens are the Police Dept and Code Enforcement.

The Police in those areas are good and Code Enforcement is good since the new manager took over and the County removed the Evil Witch Doctor (Nancy Funny). I see the code enforcement officers are happy to work and all them are happy with the new manager. I see them in my neighborhood and I talk with them. I told one code enforcement officer, I hope Nancy Funny will never manager this department again and he replied, she's quite as a mouse and we both laughed.

Why does the blog master spend so much time on one subject before moving on? There is no reason in the world why any subject has to be on this blogger for more than four days. There are many other subjects and doings going on in this screwed up county which will warrant comments from its readers, but not to overload on the same subject. Get real Mr. Blog Master and shorten the amount of days and comments.

Check out the front page of the latest edition of the DeKalb Neighbor local newspaper. Interesting interview with our new Chief. Sounds good in theory but in principal, well, that's another story. Only time will tell. Let's hope for the best!

Stand by folks.... Your part times jobs will soon be controlled by IA. The days of controlling your own part time jobs is going to be striped. You will be put on a waiting list and when a job becomes available and its your turn on the list you can take it or leave it. Also you will only be allowed to keep a job for a maximum of 3 years. Never mind if that business owner wants you specifically to work. Good luck Im sure this process will be welcomed with open arms. Thank you Chief. This will be a great morale booster.

Hey..you all hear Special Ops...got dumped on like a big dog!!!...the so-called ticket slow down....they got called out on it....poor guys/gals....just goes to show that the so-called female asst. chief has no clue on what's going on over there.....

I heard they also yanked the seniors 20+ year status out from under them.....also heard if they don't like it they can leave.....

WOW???....guess it's not so special anymore now is it???....Feel sorry for some of those guys that have been there a year or two...work like a dog...now the one that feeds them is taking a massive dump on them...

By the way....let's keep a positive attitude about it.....

YEA RIGHT!!!

Why would the chief pull part times? Or have IA controlling them? That makes no sense whatsoever. I mean part time jobs are hard to come by as it is so why take money and food from our families mouths? Some people in this county actually depend on part time jobs to make ends meet. What will happen? Some if the personnel on IA will get first pick on what they want to work? This is ridiculous!

The comment about extra jobs sounds like a logistical nightmare. As a matter of fact there are numerous officers that work off-duty employment that has nothing to do with being police officers. ...they work around their schedules here. You're telling me that IA is gonna tell these guys they have to shuffle out after 3 yrs....give me a break. You are assuming that all extra jobs worked by officers are worked in uniform as an officer which is not the case. You have some officers who have their own businesses that have to submit Extra Job request to work them...example, landscaping, handyman services, automotive repair, carpentry, etc, etc.......so they're all gonna have to give up their businesses...

I think someone has been hanging by the water-cooler too long drinking the spiked Kool-Aid....

You ppl go from one extreme to the next I can't believe that the Chief I listened to in roll call would consider taking from officers and their families. He would have to be a callous individual. Quit spreading lies. Can we just come together and try to uplift each other for a change. Can we discuss going down to Decatur to fight for raises. I'm sure if we go down there in big enough numbers the media will tune in. If we create enough noise something is bound to happen. So, lets get together and do something constructive!!!! He said plain as day we wouldn't have to worry about retaliation from him if we are fighting for our just cause and he would support us.. Can we start coming up with a plan as to how we can get this done. Something positive and worthy. The Chief made a good point, we're looking like fools on a public site bashing our department and fellow officers for the whole world to see. We have officers that have made the ultimate sacrifice is this how we repay them. Come on guys lets rise up from the mediocrity and be a positive example of unity and how to get things done. We can do it! We all wear this uniform and might I add look good in it too lets go down fighting together. I believe in you let's do it!!!!!! DKPD, rise up!!!!!!

The powers to be want to know when you sleep, eat, piss, and shit because this falls under job classification descriptions. The PTB want to know who you sleep with, when you sleep, where you sleep and what you take to sleep more.

Face it, this is the true meaning of big brother watching every move you make and why. The theory behind all this, is that as long as the PTB is signing your paycheck, they can dictate what you can and cannot do. This will get worse before its gets better.

It doesn't make a difference who the big chief is because it all come from the very top.....The CEO is cracking his whip and doesn't give a shit who he steps on doing it. Unfortunately, he is playing GOD with your career.

Hope and pray that this type of dictator will end soon........

The part time job stuff is all BS. All the chief is doing is forming a 30 or more panel of OFFICERS to review nationwide how other departments run their parttime jobs..Get to the BOC meetings and be seen and not type trash on this all day long. Help yourselves...

I.A., assigning p/t job's ? SERIOUSLY ?? With all the recent bad press about recruiting,hiring and retaining these "THUG OFFICER'S",it seem's like I.A. would want to be low profile, and stay completely off the radar. They obviously can't even handle their "basic job description" duties!! I know they approve/dissaprove all p/t job request"s, but that only applies to "law enforcement related",not non-related. If so, I would contact an attorney,F.O.P., I.B.O.P. what-ever? They don't,and can't "own" you, 24/7/365, (off time,v-day's ,holiday's, etc,especially if you are not representing this dept.,in any form,or fashion). If I wanted to be a rodeo clown,or shovel shit, on my personal time, then it ain't up to the dept.,as long as I don't wear their uniform, or present myself as such! IS THERE ABSOLUTELY NO-ONE,NO-WHERE,DOWN THERE, STANDING UP FOR YALL ANYMORE? This mass protest look's good on paper, but it's never going to happen. You can't get police officer's to agree on anything,MUCH LESS COMMIT! It's never going to work,until you get everybody on board, from the officer's, to the supervisor's, to the upper management.(and you know the supervisor's and upper management are way to chicken-shit for that. That would actually mean doing something,for somebody else,BESIDES THEMSELVES)!! Ain't gonna happen. Not now,not ever, never!!! As for the B.O.C.,they can, and will continue to ignore 100 + officer's,just as easy as ignoring 1 officer !! IT'S ALMOST AS IF THIS NEW CHIEF IS DARING YOU TO LEAVE !! The more thing's change,the more they remain the same. NEW BOSS,SAME BOSS,NO BOSS!!

I am sick of the BOC and community and their pure hate for public safety. Remember you get what you pay for (plenty of lawsuits, bad media, corrupt officers)For the past 5 to 6 years we keep hearing you will not get a raise this year (let yourself and your family sacrifice financially, lets hope it's not your life though thats sacrificed.) You would figure a real boss that really gave a dam would try help their employees, but remember who we are talking about corrupt politicians with their personal agendas and their financial friends tainting the system. Why or when will any positive happen in DeKalb this is almost like Detroit.

I believe that those of us who are not indebted to our part-time jobs understand what is being said. Yes, we all need the extra income but quite a few a way too cozy with their employers. They become indebted to the part time boss more so than the county. Remember we serve the county and citizens of the county even when working a part time. We have people taking loans from employers, taking out of country vacations with employers, and spending as much time on duty at their pt as on patrol. If its just about making extra income then why do you care where you work or is it about an obligation. These jobs should be rotated ever so often. Also, personnel above the rank of sergeant should not be working part time jobs before rank and file officers get an opportunity, many departments already have this policy. This includes CDC and other special gigs.

You make no sense.. So let me ask you this. Since I have been working for the County for 15 plus years does that mean I should have been rotating every three years to another Agency? Lets face it most jobs dont last that long anyway. However the business owner who employes the Officers has a trust in their work ethics and would rather have an Officer familiar with his business operation vs a Rookie Officer who does not. Lets see how this plays out when the County tells a business owner what Officer has to work for them... just saying another reason to leave this place.

Anonymous said...

I guess the next thing will be the County collecting money from the part times, taxing you, taking 10 percent for the pension, and then sending you a pay check. Oh and by the way every part time does not pay the same. So you are telling me that I will have my $35 dollar an hour job taken from me and given a $20 an hour job. The obvious reality is that there will be several Officers in a financial crises. Is this what we need right now. Chief please leave this one alone.

That's priceless coming from an anonymous poster who should know that we don't have the ability to legally go on strike and let crime accumulate and rot until we get a well deserved pay raise.

Sanitation has them by the short and curlies .... All PD can do is ask for a little lube.

Anonymous said...

Seems to me that this chief has very little experience with how large departments work. This guy now has captains coming to day watch roll call. How insane is that? That is supposed to accomplish what? Another way of treating sergeants like children. Let the sergeants run the watch and everyone else get the hell out of the way!
Leave the part time jobs alone, chief. This isnt the time to screw around with people's money. Supposedly he is worried about corruption at clubs. Cute! We need to worry about our corrupt CEO!

If PD asked for lube, the commissioners would give it to us, but make us pay for it out of our own pay checks and call it a new benefit that they are providing for us.

Hey Chief, how long are you going to allow asst Chief dale Holmes make your command staff look like a bunch of idiots. Ask around about how smooth he ran that scene on East last Friday, what a winner!!

does a traffic stop on I20 a few weeks earlier because he says a dump truck cut him off inside of a construction zone where dale was reckless. Then dale yells at the officer working the part time like its his fault. Threatens to have the part time job cancelled because he is so mad.

I could go on and on and on and on. Chief I have a better idea, have dale speak in public and then think that this is the guy who runs your uniform division!!

The only thing standing between you the "citizen" and those thugs, criminals, and low life's your so scared of.....Is a very very thin blue line. Start treating us with respect, and hold your government elected officials accountable for the way they treat the Police. Or you might find yourself waking up in the middle of the night with a stranger standing over your bed, or going through your drawers. Calling 911 as he walks, yes walks out your door with your property. Just to find out we "Cops" don't give a shit anymore. After all, what have "you" done for us lately? When this happens be prepared to defend yourself. Oh you don't have a gun in the house. You don't believe in them, gee guess it sucks to be you.. Yea we took an oath, yea we really cared at one time, and some "very few" still do.

This department has done nothing for it's Officers, and it has taken root and spread like the cancer it is. It has become a death sentence for DKPD. Some of us must stay, to collect our pension we have worked so long and hard for. Those replacing us don't have half the dedication or drive we had nor the work ethics. That's why so many are showing up on the 5 o'clock news. Those that are honest are moving on where they feel they are respected and needed. DKPD use to be the place I was pround to say I worked. No one says that now. If the do they are full of crap, and drinking the kool-aid.
This is why no "Chief" will ever make a difference. He can't hire, and train enough fast enough to stop the bleeding. They will train here, and move on to other agencies with a certification, all on your dime.
Just an old timer's two cents worth. Just saying "I'm gone".

Taking my Experience and Leaving said...

I wouldn't go so far as to say officers wouldn't respond because they don't give a damn..... I would say that you may not have enough good, experienced officers to answer 911 calls in a timely manner.

Experienced officers are leaving in droves....retiring or going elsewhere... the officers there to respond have little to no experience. ..they will make mistakes that will cost the county and may cost you dearly.

I'm a veteran with over a decade of experience... we haven't seen raises in years...our pension and health deductions have skyrocketed ...officers are taking home less to support their families than they did the year before while the cost of living (food, gas etc....) is going up fast... raises associated with promotions went down from 10% to 5%.... that reduction in potential earnings is a reduction in our retirement/pension... we'll never top out at our salary levels..... for my family's sake.... I'm looking at leaving... there is little reason to stay.

Overlooking Public Safety is putting YOUR safety at risk.

You bunch of "F-ing" cry babies! When you started this job you knew two things, the public likes firemen not police and you will never be rich or paid what your worth. So, stop crying about the pay on this blog, show up at the CC-meetings and voice your opinion. No one in the Department can give you a raise so stop crying to the wrong people. As for the Chief, no he can't turn things around, hello he is one person. There are at least 5 or 6 hundred of us. So, like Michael Jackson said, how bout starting with the man in the mirror. Do your job, do it well, and move along. It's not hard, people at McDonalds do it everyday. What you need a pat on the back for doing your job, a cookie, medal. Just take your check and be happy your employed. I've never seen so many weak crying bitches, makes me wish I stayed in the Marines. Put your big boy pants on and do what your getting paid to do, protect my grandmother, daughter, son, the weak, the helpless, and stop crying about yourselves all the damn time!

PatsQB said...

I'm not sure "crying" has anything to do with it. I'm willing to bet the officers on here want a fair days wage for a fair days worth of work.
When officers bring up relevant issues (no cost of living increases, no possibility of earning yearly raises, barely a raise for promotions) that's not whining. No one has misconceptions about getting rich in this line of work but it should be a financially stable career.
Comparing this career to working at McDonald's is not really worth responding to but I'll hit the highlights. Policing is a profession. It takes training, certification, and continuing education. It also calls us to work and live at a higher standard. A McDonald's manager doesn't make the news when they get a DUI, we do.
McDonald's also doesn't routinely ask its employees to run towards danger.

Lastly, even if the majority of people don't like cops there are those out that do and our oath doesn't allow us to protect and serve those that don't any differently. Plus, all those that don't like us should be all the more reason for us to support each other.

DKPD doing more with less, for way too long.

Anonymous said...

@patsqb... Think you are missing the point I'm making. It doesn't help anyone to cry about this crap on this blog. It does no good to bash the Chief. The department and the chief don't make any of the decisions to increase your pay or benefits. The chief just runs the PD, makes choices on how it's best to run personnel within the PD. you want to bitch about how he's doing that, what ever, I don't care. As for the pay, bitch about that to the BOC in their meetings. Point about the McDonalds comment, those workers make minimum wage, yet they still put out their yummy burgers with a smile, not us we get paid crap and then take it out on citizens who, like you said we took an oath to protect, and that's the right thing to do? Some people need to just do their jobs, do it right, and learn to bitch the right way and to the right people. That's my point.

How many police shooting's,and police officer's shot/incident's have we had in metro Atl.in the last month? It used to be front page new's,now it's somewhere in the middle of the metro pages. That pretty much say's it all!!! Have you ever noticed that just about all of the police killed/shot/injured incident's are alway's in the south ? The big agencies administrator's,as well as small,take care of business first,and worry about "liability,liability,liability",afterward's. Their officer's are not alway's second quessing everything they do,and their public doesn't like them anymore than our's likes us !(they actually worry about their officer's first). They also weed out and prosecute their bad officer's,and cater to,and appreciate their good officer's!! Don't believe me? Go up there and show your ass and see what happen's! When's the last time you heard of a Chicago,Detroit,Philly,or NYPD officer getting shot on a regular basis? They don't fu*k around with these "people,they care about and back each other,and are supported by their "BRASS".( I intentionally left out LAPD,because they have screwed up everything from Rodney King to O.J.

still love this job! where else do you get to have this much fun? i still challenge myself, and each and every one of you, to strive for excellence in all you do, on and off the clock! if we want to change this department, than we each need to commit to being the very best we can be! you cant change a department until we change ourselves. i love this job, i love each of you, and as always, know this: if the need should arise, i would split the gates of hell to come to your side! always demand the very best from ourselves, and from each other. three year rookie out!

So obviously the Ellis dog & pony show was just a bunch of grandstanding on DA's part. What a waste of space, time, and money.

Best move yet! From fireman to congressman, Thomas Edison Brown. Who will be DeKalb's next Sheriff? Wiz Miller or Joe Bembry?

Did I miss a blue flu today or something? 4 Officers on Center day watch and 3 Officers from Tucker day watch called out sick today. How many called out at the other precincts? Any other shifts? All I know is working with 5 units on the road not only sucks, but it isn't safe.

Are statute of limitations up on all of Vernon's corruption? He makes Ellis look like an amateur criminal.

How come supply issues police chief badges to officers who are not chiefs? Check the records and you will see.

Who has a chief's badge?

Dick Hand & Bobby Burgess handed out fu*king police chief badges like beer's @ a choir practice! No telling who has them now. I bet if you dig deep enough,you will probably find out that the perp/pervert preacher in Lithonia either has one,or had one.

Not talking about back in the day, they are still being handed out by our own logistics. Need to audit who is being issued what!

Why do they have this stuff to begin with? (probably the same reason the P.I.O.has,or had,a county unit with blue light's and a siren).They only break that bullsh*t out when they are either stopped for speeding,d.u.i.,public drunk,domestic's or other violation's.(when they tell you they are "honorary police chief's,put their honorary ass,in honorary jail)!! My God,I remember when the head of the park patrol made himself a "5" star general,and was wearing that around! Same exact sh*t still goes on at P.D. and S.O..(special deputies,until they all got J-1'ed). If they are ignorant enough to complain,just tell them to call the new's media,or P.O.S.T.. I guess these chief's,past and present think they are like Froggy and his magic twanger."TWANG--YOU ARE NOW A CHIEF.GO FORTH AND POSE!! If they are not sworn/certified personel,they are simply a Mr,Mrs,or Miss,(or,hey-YOU). But,come to think of it,they are probably more qualified than the "pretend/poser"chief's we have now.(at least they don't fu*k over officer's,and mismanage everything in this dept.). DOH!!
