This blog page was established so DeKalb County Police Officers including their family and friends may have a place to hold discussions, post news and vent without fear of retribution.
Brandon Brown? Was $50 worth losing your job? Chief hang in there your doing a great job we know its going to take time to clean this mess up. Keep your head up, we the PEOPLE of DeKalb stand with you and know you are the right person to HELP make DeKalb County a SAFER place to live. PLEASE do not let DKPD officers work j2s in uninform if they do not respect the BADGE and UNIFORM. The BADGE and UNIFORM need to worn by people who respect both and rep the county in good way. The BADGE is property of the PEOPLE. NO POLICE OFFICER WOKING FOR THE COUNTY SHOULD GET A RAISE UNTILL THEY CAN PASS A POLYGRAPH TEST AS TO J2's THEY HAVE WORKED. The county may be better off re-interviewing all DKPD officers and allowing only ones that can pass a POLYGRAPH test to stay. Chief WE STAND WITH YOU! Time to take out the TRASH. Chief did I say "WE STAND WITH YOU" keep up the good work. To all DKPD officers - if you do not like what DeKalb County is offering you GO SOMEWHERE ELES, and give us back the BADGE we let you barrow. We all hope you will find happiness, we are tired of all of your bitching. Go, you can be replaced.
I am a police officer in Georgia and im sick of your sorry department in the news everyday , giving a bad name to my occupation. Your department should be shut down by the FBI, the amount of dirty cops in your department is disgraceful. Bunch of shameless thugs, If you are one of the good guys you need to leave now!!
I retired over 5 years ago...since then, I have been concerned with the kind of people DeKalb has hired to protect its citizens. Did Background come up with anything that would have predicted this behavior? Further...what role is POST playing that contributes to DeKalb hiring "less than perfect" people? The TV news needs to go to POST and compare the file POST has on this person...with what DeKalb has to see if there are any "inconsistencies." Further - I suggest to POST that THEY run NCIC/GCIC on DeKalb's candidates for the academy...just in case. I'm concerned that there is more to this story than just bad luck in DeKalb's hiring process. Let's face it...there are some people out there that just shouldn't be police or doctors or priests or firemen or teachers...etc.
Brandon Brown did what the business license , zoning, and permits department been doing for many years. If chief is policing the Police who's Policing the crooks in business licenses?
PULL ALL J2's NOW. PULL ALL J2's NOW. PULL ALL J2's NOW!Why is it you people (DKPD - Officers) will not report your fellow officers to IA when they do bone headed things. You guys need to be drug tested twice a week till the bullsh#t goes away. Oh yea keep on hanging out at STRIP CLUBS and protecting drug dealers the DEA, FBI will get you soon enough. They have already gotten some of you, just have not picked you up yet. Looking into who you hang with, its coming though. To the BOC, Lee May do not give these fools a raise! Its time to start over. Chief A, TAKE THE TRASH OUT! Keep your head up, WE STAND WITH YOU
Someone call in the FBI! PLEASE!
They treat us like shit, they pay us like shit, what kind of people do you expect to attract here? When you've got a crooked CEO under indictment and a former Assistant Chief, now Captain, accused of obstructing an investigation and lying to a Grand Jury, what kind of example does that set?
To anonymous 12:08So if your treated badly, make little money it is OK to go outside the law? I hope your not DKPD officer, if you are please turn in your badge if you feel its OK to be a BAD COP. Your statement is what is wrong with DKPD. GO, YOU can be replaced. NO police force is better than a CRIMINAL police force. CRIMINALS in uniform WILL NOT BE TOLERATED IN DEKALB COUTY. GO, You can be replaced. You people have your head up your butt and feel like you can not be replaced. The WOLF at the door is dressed in BLUE. Turn in your fellow cops if they are breaking the LAW.
Chief,Did the CEO uphold the office of which he was sworn to do? Your silence speaks volumes!
Trash gets picked up twice a week around here. Take it out. Still got my teeth OLD WAR HORSE. @10:22am said well. SOMEONE PLEASE CALL THE F. B. I. and give Chief A some help taking out the TRASH. @11:39am that crew got it coming soon. No more trips, parties with hookers, free cash, NFL tickets, NBA tickets, trips to the ranch, jobs for your kids........... TIME TO TAKE THE TRASH OUT.
@ September 19, 2013 at 10:22 AM...You're an asshole. I've been a honest, hard working, DEKALB County Police Officer for over 16 years now. I've made multiple high profile arrest throughout my time, taken countless numbers of narcotics, guns off the streets, and I have watched multiple officers, one very dear to me, die protecting the citizens of this county. (Some grateful some not) DeKalb police has bad apples just like everywhere else. Unless you police in Mayberry, or maybe your a college cop...then you should know this. Each department has its turn in the news and unfortunately it's Dekalbs turn. Let me tell you what's not on the news: My buddy on morning watch got his ass kicked while trying to arrest a drunk driver. An officer was assisting a stalled motorist and got hit by a car. A female officer, responding to a suspicious person, got body slammed on the concrete when she approached the suspect.I could go on forever. What did you do last night??? I work along side some of the best men and women I know. Regardless of what our BOC, CEO, and dirty officers have, are doing, and will do in the future, the good outweighs the bad. I am proud to be a DeKalb Police Officer and I want to see my department get its top notch name back. I make no excuses for the criminals that are able to infiltrate our organization but you are wrong to lump my department as a whole. You would be lucky to work here and learn from some of the best. Find some respect CHILD and support your brothers and sisters in blue that are still fighting to make a difference.
11:43 AM,I say this with all due respect: you're a fucking moron!Let's examine your idiotic statement line by line:"Why is it you people (DKPD - Officers) will not report your fellow officers to IA when they do bone headed things."If we're talking about the most recent case, no other officers were there to witness this incident, so how do you expect someone to report something they didn't see?? You obviously don't work in our department, so you don't have a clue about how many officers do report misconduct to IA. Not every officer getting fired makes the evening news. There's a lot going on that you never hear about."You guys need to be drug tested twice a week till the bullsh#t goes away."First, given the current budget crisis, do you really think this would be a good use of tax payer dollars? Those tests aren't free. Second, has drug use been a problem in any of the most recent officer arrests or firings? Just because you're taking money from a drug dealers doesn't mean you're doing drugs. You're proposing wasting a ton of money looking for a problem that there's no evidence even exists. Instead of wasting money on those drug tests, how about just giving it to the officers in the form of a raise??"Oh yea keep on hanging out at STRIP CLUBS and protecting drug dealers the DEA, FBI will get you soon enough."Hanging out in strip clubs is not illegal. You may find it distasteful, but it's not illegal. Yes, if you're doing something, eventually you will be caught."They have already gotten some of you, just have not picked you up yet. Looking into who you hang with, its coming though."I get what you're saying, but it's grammatically atrocious. "To the BOC, Lee May do not give these fools a raise! Its time to start over."First, I'm not a fool. You are. If you want to call me a fool, please name a time and place to say it to my face! Second, not giving us raises for 6 years is one of the things that led to this mess. Put yourself in the shoes of a highly qualified job seeker thinking about a career in law enforcement. Are you going to apply at DKPD, where you're not going to get a raise and each year the county is going to be taking more and more out of your paycheck, or are you going to make the rational decision and go somewhere else? Now put yourself in the shoes of a high performing, experienced DKPD officer. You haven't seen a raise in 6 years, your pay check has gone down every since one of those years, but another department or company is offering you more money, better benefits, and raises each year. Why the hell would you stay here? Third, "start over?" Are you suggesting firing all of us? That's a great idea! Then you will have no police protection for almost a year! It takes 6 to 8 months to get someone with no police experience through a background check and an academy. Can you manage 6 to 8 months with no cops? Maybe you're thinking you could attract some cops with experience from other departments. Good luck with that! We're losing good, experienced cops every day because other departments will appreciate us and our experience, and will pay us accordingly. Just who do you think you're going to lure away from another department to come and work here where you get paid like shit and have that shitty pay get cut every year? Use your head, dumbass!"Chief A, TAKE THE TRASH OUT! Keep your head up, WE STAND WITH YOU"Good, get rid of the trash, but if you want to keep your good officers here, which is the vast majority of us, start making public safety your top priority! You do that by paying us and giving us raises! I hear a lot of talk and promises, but I see no action. Do something already!
@9:41 forget a polygraph test can you pass a GED test???? It's sad and embarrassing if you are a certified police officer that you can't spell simple words... Take your ass back to school first smh... I hope you not in CID lol
If you knew the kid he was not the brightest bulb in the fixture. He was a very nice individual and seemed like a good person but was a complete idiot. He deserves what he has coming to him.
somebody in a position of authority needs to pay very close attention to what 9/19/2013 1139AM posted. $$$$$$$$$ #TRUTH
If officers are getting their asses kicked there daily I'd suggest hitting the gym, boxing ring, or finding a more suitable line of work.
To all of you Officers from other Departments talking trash about DKPD. Yeah it's true that we have had some dirty Officers in the past and will probably have some in the future but that is a very small percentage of us. I will put DKPD against any other Department when it comes to Police work. The things that we experience and see in 3 years are probably more than some of you will in your whole career. To Anon. 10:22 AM- Be safe brother
Chief Alexander,I believe it is time to start looking at Chief Holmes. The best place to begin would be with our record archives department and physically looking at his Interal Affairs records over the past 25 years. You will be presently surprise what you uncover.
4;52 & 9;41. It's easy to insult people,when you continue to hide with all these anonymous comment's! All of you "critic's" have absolutely no credibility,and never will! With your obvious inability to grasp or basically communicate in the "king's english" like, "We got yo back. We stand with you" rants,you are only re-inforcing what everybody down here thinks of the majority of DeKalb County "citizen's",anyway! If,as you say, "It's time to take out the trash,take a look at who is committing all these acts of corruption.The "special hires" that should never even been considered for employment to begin with!! Straight out of your communities,and neighborhood's ! It's like having the fox,guarding the hen-house! I doubt that your definition of "trash" includes,what did the Grand Jury call Miller and Williams? Uhh,blatant examples of abject incompetence! (abject incompetence means,ohh,never mind.If I have to explain it to you,you wouldn't understand anyway).Chief "A",as you call him,is doing,and will not do anything regarding this system of incompetence,and corruption. All he is doing is being reactive,and just going through the motions for all the endless photo op's.(that's the news media). Every bit of this gross incompetence involves his hand-picked "folk's". Taking out the trash? You better start at the very top,and work your way down to the "thugs",we are forced to hire!! I'm glad you still have your teeth.(all 13 of them)!!!!
