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.
Anyone go to the pension board meeting this past thursday ? ... If so, can anyone advise those that could not make it what was discussed ? SERENITY NOW
Let's see if I can cover all the topics:1. The county government sucks.2. The command staff sucks.3. I've applied to other agencies. 4. I've been hired by another agency.5. If you stay at Dekalb, you're an idiot.6. I've left Dekalb and I'm happy now.7. We need take home cars.8. Our uniforms are ugly.9. Some random comment about some corrupt official in another county department.10. Freeze your pension and leave.11. Leave our pension alone. 12. Bring back 4/3 for CID.13. Name a specific supervisor, they are stupid. 14. I hate this county. 15. Voters in Dekalb are stupid.16. The county will sink/go bankrupt/not exist.
How about posting what people have to say instead of monitoring and only posting what you want? Smear some people and protect others????
I think we should move out of the 1960's and allow facial hair just like APD, DKSO, Deklab DA's office, and every major company. It doesn't cost anything and would improve Morale a little.
Oh and by the way, since employers have to comply with obamacare in 2015, I wonder of the county is just gonna give us a few buck (and I mean few) and tell us to go out on the health exchanges for health insurance. You know its comingSERENITY NOW
Anonymous 11/17/13 @12:55PM you are a complete self centered idiot. All you can do is complain and complain and when your lips move, nothing comes out that makes any sense. Go take your sorry ass somewhere far, far away and bury it in the sand where it will do the most good.
11:30. Are you shi*#ing me! That is the absolute,last thing we need right now! "OUR" professional reputation,image,acceptance,and trust of and by the public,is at an all time,departmental history low low The majority of the metro area,as well as the entire state, thinks that all we hire now,are "THUGS". What in the hell does "facial hair" have to do with any increase in morale!! I'VE READ SOME REALLY IGNORANT,STUPID, IDIOTIC,RIDICULOUS,EMBARRASSING BULL-SH*T,ON HERE BEFORE,BUT THIS TAKES THE CAKE! From actual experience and observation,I observed some Hiram P.D. uniform officers with "facial hair". O.M.G.,if they weren't wearing a badge and a firearm,I would have thought they worked for motor maintenance. If you want "facial hair",transfer to Roads and Drainage,or better yet,Sanitation! If you can't act like a professional police-officer,at least try to look like one,you moron UN-F**KING-BELIEVABLE. Please,please,please,be a f.n.g,that should have never been hired to even begin with!!!
11:03pm, we should allow facial hair, but only for male officers.
with regards to facial hair, chief alexander does allow "soul patches." Oh wait, nevermind... I forgot he has his own set of rules for himself.
Ummmm, 11/18/2013 @11:47 that whole list was sarcasm - regarding the general posts that are seen on the open comments area. Usually the same comments over and over again, not my personal bitch list.
Figured I would stop in a throw my negative filled comments in....low pay, increasing "benefits", failed promises, and no chance of a take home car....yeah lining up interviews in the coming weeks to get the hell out of here!! I have never seen a county full of idiotic THUGS with absolutely ZERO respect for any authority! Ohh yeah, and half of the command staff are yellow bellies....it will be a celebration at my house the day I hand in my gear and move on!!
http://www.wsbtv.com/videos/news/detective-under-investigation-after-ties-to-known/vCJg5B/Whoa, this Dunwoody detective has got some explaining to do?
If working here so bad, why are you still working here?
Just read on the Huffington Post about an @sshole who spit in an officers food. The asshole tested positive for Hep C. The @sshole was given a minimum of 29 months. Reminded me of when an @sshole put ashes in an East officers food and no freaking prosecution because that punk @ss Ellis knew the owner of Zaxbys. Hopefully after he is convicted, there will be no conviction for the perp that puts something in his @sshole.
So all the sorry/uninfomed "robots" like you won't be the only ones left.
You should never,ever,not now/not ever,eat anything,anywhere,where you cannot see the food prepared right in front of your eyes! Especially restaurant's and fast food places(by no means @ the drive-thru)! These sorry bastards will smile in your face,and spit in your food,all at the same time! Rumor is,back in the day when Randy Moore was still "a real police",he walked inside a fast food restaurant on Mem. Dr.,to order his food,to specifically avoid the afore-mentioned peril of this job. A p.o.s. employee,turned his back,spit in his food,and handed it over the counter. Fortunately,this officer was paying attention,and caught this sorry m.f. in the act. Needless to say,said perp was snatched over the counter,had the brakes beat off his ass,and what was left,was J1'ed. Don't ever trust any of these "citizens" with anything! I remember when that worthless,sorry ass,Jesse Jackson was interviewed on some type of special about all these,so called "religious" political activist/reverend"s. They asked him if he had ever had a "real job",before his "special calling"? He looked into the camera,and very stoically said,"Yeh,I worked at ------ King,for a little while, when I was a teenager,so I could spit in white folks food". Swear to GOD! So,it ain't just these sorry ass hood rats you have to watch. You better start watching everybody,everywhere,all the time. Cough,sniff,snort,cough,sniff snort,fah,fah,fah,tooie!! "Thank you for everything you do, officer. PLEASE COME BACK TO SEE US"!!
Rumbling going around that ol' Vernon Jones is gonna run for Sheriff! Wow wouldn't that be the fox guarding the hen house.
I can't answer for everyone else but, I'm still here solely for the pension. Too old to leave and have to many years here... if they change the pension or it collapses, I'm done. I'll rake my experience and education elsewhere.... making a difference doesn't cover the bills... Marta, Emory and other organizations (public and private.... are hiring.
I heard today its confirmed from Decatur that those sworn making more than $60,000 will not be receiving the 3% bonus check.
Absolutely no open forum here FOLKS....the BM censorship is ...well let's just say, pathetic.Blogmaster you're an idiot.You will post crap that is completely untrue and spin it to your liking...but in no way can we say anything about your lovin HERO JT....I think the time has come for a new kid on the block....This blog has been getting old and boring anyway, time for a fresh coat of paint....so stand back and let the comments fly.
Anon 6:07 get you facts together
I hope everyone that hates working for DKPD is making plans for the future. Lakeside or Briarcliff will mean no more North Central. Stonecrest will mean no more East. Eventually Tucker will have their own PD when they realize it's better to just pay for their own rather than also subsidize South. Clarkston and Stone Mountain are preparing annexations too. You better pick a department here or elsewhere because change is coming in the next few years.
10:56 Oh no,"U" again! Please stop embarrassing your-self on here. It hits a nerve everytime you read something you don't like. You must have really been abused by that guy! Stop name dropping. Just stop whining,please !
ydenAnon November 20, 2013 at 10:56Remember that this isn't your blog. Your posting is subject to the one and only rule I can find here, and believe it or not, it's right below the comment box as you type. "Comment moderation has been enabled. All comments must be approved by the blog author."Now, in reference to JT, Do you honestly believe that JT Irwin would waste his time on this site, let alone the internet? Really?? Get real. I'm only assuming that you are pegging the poster "Old Warhorse" as JT, correct? What proof is there? Unless you have absolute proof, then there's really no reason to drag him into your posts. Sorry, but I do know JT, and I can tell you this, He's on a motor for better part of everyday doing funeral escorts for many, many hours. I can assure you once he gets home and pulls the gear off, one of the very last things he wants to get is get on the internet and read this crap. We better be concerning ourselves about bigger issues ie., health ins, pension, raises, you name it. If I were the bm, I would strip a lot of the crap comments on here a lot more that whats being done now.
Are you kidding? The blogmaster doesn't even post when the truth is put out there. Like the fact that Rutland, Scoggins and Frankin were removed from SWAT after an IA investigation. No rumors there, but as soon as people starting putting the truth, the section was deleted.
"I heard today its confirmed from Decatur that those sworn making more than $60,000 will not be receiving the 3% bonus check."Yet another lie posted by the Uninformed. Confirmed from Decatur that in fact ALL SWORN will receive the 3% check.Well, this much I CAN Confirm....It's people like you with your "Confirmed" bullshit thats ruined this department. We talk about Decatur and the leaders of the department are to be held accountable, how about the same when it comes to this blog?
Having facial hair would save me money and improve some moral.
3:42. Seriously? Save you money? Do you live under a bridge somewhere? Guess you will want to stop buying soap,to save you more money,next!! Morale? Sounds like you are happy as a fat boy,at an all you can eat buffet,as it is!! Guess the pride of maintaining a professional image went out the window,when this department took this nose-dive when the "we's in charge now" transpired! And we thought it could not poss get any worse!! Just like a computer:shit in/shit out!!
If SHAVING is too taxing a task, imagine the work ethic they must have once they get here. UNBELIEVABLE...
"Private Pyle,I think we have finally found something you do well!(Gunny Hartman). By any chance,did anybody else happen to see Lee May working with Sanitation? It was on channel 2,yesterday."I have to walk in their shoes,before I can relate to what they are going through". Really? Well,bring that ass on over here,strap on a duty belt,ass a unit,and go down to east-side,or better yet,south-side. You won't be walking in our shoes,by any means,but you will be shi*#ing in your pants! Slinging garbage bags in the back of a garbage truck,is a whole apart from what we do everyday.
I wish the men and women of DKPD the best. Today I turned in my j2after 10 years and I'm moving on. Stay safe out there and watch each other's backs.Sgt Garber #2413
Facial hair should be optional. Its 2013 guys - I know.ur tired of buying razors at $18 a pack.Anon 1:25, 2:29,and 9:25 please retire, why you got to get all personal, you prob just write tickets all day and call that productive to, wake up its not 1967 ......besides Jesus,Abraham Lincoln, and hulk hogan had a beards and they were professional :-) have a great day and be safe out there
Looks like someone needs an electric razor this Xmas.
http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/24087374/fire-destroys-covington-officers-homeOFFICER NEEDS HELP!Great family. Please post this on the page. This family needs our help.
To Old Warhorse @ 1:42 (If that is even you).I used to have some resemblance of respect for you. Not because I know you, but because you seem to have had enough real world experience to have an informed / educated / thought provoking opinion and you are actively involved in posting your opinions on this blog. Fortunately you have exposed your true colors through this post and we all know now what you are. We can smell you at a distance, the stench is atrocious. It is familiar, but some just can't put their finger on it. Maybe you should just lift your little girl skirt up and show the world what you really are, a pink, soft and pathetic worn out wanna be. You are so incredibly stupid that you probably don't understand the basic concepts logic and common sense, but I'll go ahead and use small words so you can follow along.Our professional reputation, image, acceptance and trust are all different things that have nothing to do with facial hair, nor would they be affected by it. Our image is established from a multitude of things from the way you carry yourself, to how neat your uniform is, to how physically fit you are. I don't think anyone but someone as stupid as you would say that George Clooney, Tyson Beckford, David Beckham or the Dos Equis guy have an “unprofessional image” or as you would call them, “thugs”. You are right that our “acceptance” is a serious issue. We have a very hard time relating and having a commonality with the public that we serve. I'm about to drop a bomb shell on you so hold on to something. The majority of the public doesn't like us. They don't cooperate as witnesses or victims 90% of the time. Something that would make us more similar to the public and approachable is never a bad thing. We are not in the Marine Corps, I'm sorry to tell you because I honestly don't thing you understand that. We are a police dept., we serve the public's best interests. Reputation and Trust have to be earned, still that has nothing to do with facial hair. I'm sorry you saw two scary Hiram Police officers. I live in the Metro Atlanta Area, so I wouldn't know anything about a police department with probably only 15 officers.Why would it increase Morale? Because I'm tired of the agitated and bleeding rash on my face that I have to cut open everyday. And some officers like to feel like a “regular person” on their off days. I'm assuming from your disillusionment and ignorance that you don't understand what that means, since you probably feel like “regular person” everyday. Probably the only thing you have in common with a road officer like me is the fact that you wear a uniform. Wearing that uniform is the only thing that makes you feel like you're a police officer. I feel sorry for you, we all laugh at you. You try so hard, but you just don't get it if you ever did. Just focus all your attention on trying to gig subordinate officers because you don't know how to do anything else. The most embarrassing thing for you must be that you are ashamed. I post a positive and productive idea on this blog and you insult me. I can only think of two reasons why you would do so, probably because your wife looks like a duck dynasty reject or other guys facial hair give's you a tickle when you are giving mouth love....maybe both.
TO 11/28 11:14Son...I'm not who you thin I am....and after reading that post I have to truly say.....son ..you don't know DICK!...You're young age with not knowing the REAL system truly shows you're lack of experience.As ol Fog Horn Leg Horn would say...."I say...I say...boy..boy you're doing it all wrong!!Until then...go grab a bottle of formula and wrap a nipple on it and start suckin!!!.....because you're trying to play an adult game without knowing all the rules and making yourself look like a fool.
Just FYI, Old Warhorse has taken a mighty bad fall from his ole motor. It was a very nasty crash and injury. It doesn't look like he'll be slinging a leg for the next year and it's going to be months before he can even walk again. I know we all have our differences and it's unfortunate but agree with him or not he did train a large portion of the officers that are still here and many who've retired. This is a fact, regardless of who you are he would always have your back and would always be the 1st to be 10-76 to you if you ever called or put out a 63...trust me I know 1st hand. Let's keep him & his family in our prayers. This is too all of the FNG's we have who want to grow out a beard. Please go find a new career. This job is not for you. Oh and by the way I would love for you to say what you have to say directly to Ole Warhorse himself. I'll even go with you just for the entertainment. Even in his weakened condition he'd still "BTA".
Isn't this the pot calling the kettle, well, you know... http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/former-ceo-ellis-fires-back-with-accusations/nb7C9/
Chief 5/2 and talks of it has the department ready to leave, thats all we have. HelpDD
Chief we all know you read this on a daily basis, or at least the assistant chiefs do.Things are at an all time low on the third floor. We need your help, come and speak with a few of the detectives. We can not continue to work 7 days in a row once a month being on call every night. Then have court our first day off, and if lucky get a full 24 hours off. You will lose several detectives who have been up there a considerable amount of time. Working 12 days out of 14 days not knowing when you get off at night can not continue. Will your asst chief swallow his pride and admit failure going to a 5/2? Or is he still giving his boss the typical answer "Everyone loves it boss"?Chief it SUCKSUniform Chief, please do not make the same mistake the guy across the hall did.
If you can't hack it go back to uniform. It's not that complicated. There are plenty wanting your slot.
Stop sending messages to the Chief.....the writing is on the wall. He is out of here!
To anon 11:52 Let me give you a clue, since you're a detective. Here it comes, PUT IN FOR UNIFORM. Simple, easy to do, go to the intranet and pull up a transfer request form and put in for Uniform. That car you have is about a $9,000 perk that I don't have. I'd like a car so I wouldn't have to drive my pov everyday. Putting gas in it, keeping up with the maintenance, etc., that I pay for out of my pocket. I don't have sympathy for any detective whining about the 5/2. Geez, let's see what you have besides a $9K perk that I don't have. You get to sit in your a/c office when it's hotter than shit outside and I'm wearing bulky body armor out on the street. In the winter you are in a heated office. You can go to lunch at your leisure, I'm lucky to get a lunch. If you don't like CID, leave.
Did you guys really think that Dr. Cedric would actually stay here for any length of time? Yes I'm purposely not calling him "Chief" because he's not POST certified, he's just a civilian. Anyway, the word on the street is that Dr. Cedric is in the running to be the new Chief of the Rochester NY police department. Dr. Cedric had no intention of staying at DKPD. This was just a resume builder for him. Hell, he even said on the news that "everything is good in DeKalb County Florida." What a joke. I wish the news would pick up on Dr. Cedric never being at work like they did with Chief Bolton (at least Bolton got certified). Dr. Cedric is never at work, probably because he's looking for his next job. News Media, do an open records request on Dr. Cedric's time sheets!Did everyone see that Crime Scene just lost their Sergeant? Yep, it appears that that particular Sergeant actually made all of those whiny bitches work. Those girls down there bitch about everything and seem to have forgotten that they are actually "Support Personnel." They bitched about their pay and Dr. Cedric gave them a 15% raise recently! A raise not a bonus like the sworn folks are getting! On top of that Dr. Cedric gave them all take home vans but they bitched about those so he gave them take home SUV's! Then they bitch about their Sergeant making them work and Dr. Cedric sent their Sergeant back to the road. Ridiculous!Hey Dr. Cedric, go somewhere where you actually give a crap about the department and employees. It will be best for everyone. In the meantime, we all have you pegged as a fraud!
GOOD JOB Brookhaven Police Department. 60# of dope off the streets. Wonder if the perp was one of those drug dealers dealing out of the strip club around the corner on Buford Hwy? What is the name of that place...Fo..Foo.Fol..Foll..Folli..The citizens of Brookhaven will not tolerate Drug Dealers or a DIRTY POLICE DEPARTMENT. M.P. Yarbrough you need to listen to good intel. Now to the dealer that drives the Black BMW, who parks in front, we know who you are. M.P. Yarbrough you can get him, heck we gave you his tag number. Old Warhorse Sorry to hear about your situation, wish you well....you need to get well so you can kick my teeth in like you always say. Get Well!
How much time are you spending at Follies that you know who all the dealers there are?
When I go to Follies, I'm not looking for drug dealers! Quit worrying about Follies they are going to soon be the City of Chamblee thanks to more flight from the corruption that is know as DeKalb County politics. The area has already been annexed.
To anon 11:38 This blog is not for you. You think we're all dirty; shit bag? Does your wife know you go to strip clubs? DeKalb seizes way more than 60 lbs. every year. On another note, way to go Tustin PD, 12 tons, what a haul. I told you guys about that white van...
With Brookhaven's press release of that drug bust they've eliminated any chance of any agency using that guy as a CI or any info he could of provided and they pretty much assured him of an untimely demise. When did police work go from cops & robbers to appeasing the public with self-promotion?
Because they didn't hire anyone with any lengthy experience that know these things.
The DA Office is doing a good job putting these Dekalb County Corrupt employees away. The got the school board, Irkle will be next, permits department, and zoning. Why does everyone know about the permits depertment illegal activity except the DA office?
DKPD pulls in over 5000 lbs of marijuana every year. That's an average of 100 lbs a week. Do you see us bragging about it and holding press conferences every Friday?
Former CEO Jones should be a no-brainer to prosecute. Plenty of folks willing to testify against him. Just pull any number of his land deals that resulted in "campaign contributions" and should be a slam dunk. If Feds do it under RICO there is much more range of statute of limitations regarding public corruption.
To Anon 6:34You sound stupid as hell. Check your facts. You don't know what the hell your talking about. None of what you stated is true. That's the problem with this police department. If your so disgruntled then leave. Its just that simple. Ppl sit on here and write rude things about others based on things that they think they know. They did not receive a 15% raise. They did not have enough vans for each of the employees in the unit to accommodate the 16 hours a day of on call that they were on. They did not ask for the Sgt. to get put back on the road. So now that you have been told the truth... go fact check and stop being a bitch.
5am, you don't come out on anything anymore unless there is a dead body. How many vans do you need while you're sitting in the office complaining, whining and gossiping all day? Does a crime scene tech really need a brand new Tahoe as a take home car?
@7:33 Why does it matter of it's new or old if its available? They can't pack all that crap in the back of a Malibu. You say "unless it's a dead body" as if the county has a shortage of those. Get over it.....If the chief called you and said here are the keys to the new Tahoe out back you would gladly take it and drive it. You wouldn't say "well i actually had my eye on that p.o.s over there. Not one employee in this county would. Now if your certified to do CSI go ahead and switch over cause they need the help. If not play your position and stay out of other ppl business.
@733 Not even 9hrs after my first post yet another body requiring CSI to respond has emerged.... Get off their backs....Have a great day everyone and be safe!
Dekalb County employees should be scared now because the DA office is batting .1000Are they still signing off on zoning for over a $1000 a pop? I know business license workers are expensive to. Can we just make $13 per hour and go home? Arrest 1 employee in those department and they will roll on everybody. Police Academy 101
To the person who is constantly worried about zoning and the business license department I advise you to either shut up or turn in some names and concrete evidence. Quit trying to bait something on our site, it is not designed for your rumors and baiting. Locate your balls and walk over to the DA's office and ask to speak with them. I promise they will listen. If not then let it go and continue to do your job and quit bitching about the corruption. You are as a part of the problem as they are if you really have knowledge of this and only chose to make anonymous blogs trying to stir up trouble. The media is happy to listen to a idiot like yourself so maybe give them a call and yes they will let you speak in the shadows as you like to do.
11/27. anom 6:03. I don't know if I should condemn you for your stupidity,regarding your childish/school yard taunts,or marvel at your ability to form words. If "facial hair" is your main concern,amidst all of this inter-departmental turmoil,then I would strongly suggest that you are incapable of grasping anything of professional importance or significance,regarding this job.I do not suffer fools.

You called out the wrong person. Don't call names if you are going to misspell words and correct the wrong person. Anom? You may not suffer fools but this makes you look foolish. I agree 99.9% with you but you have to be careful what you write if you want to be taken seriously.
09:58. Low sick. Not my usual happy,go lucky self for a while. Excuse me,my bad. If it doesn't apply to you,stop defending yourself. You are obviously not a friend,just probably somebody I know,or you would not have tried to "dawg me out". If you had even minor exposure to me,you would know to over-look all of my many faults,and short-comings. Besides,if you do not put others,and their careers before youself,and you don't make it your sole mission to support the "grunt patrolman,or detectives" here,you have absolutely no credibility" with me,anyway. I could care less what you think,or if you or anybody else takes "me serious". Do something positive. Stop worrying about little b s like this,and start "fighting your ass off" for this department,and especially for people that really matter here,The P.O.2s and the M.P.O.s.. F.Y.I,just for shits and grins,all these harmless blogs are spell-checked + thesaurus checked. Don't blame me,because you are probably a college grad.,and can't find a job requisite to your "self inflated resumes",and that you are forced to be here with all of us "great unwashed"! I could care less,what did you call yourself,a friend,or about your "fan status". No more,no less than what I tried to talk to you about in training. This blog does not exactly cater to those few that are showered with the endless manna from heaven,or strictly follow the 10 Commandments. Please,don't ever refer to yourself as a friend again,especially in mixed company. You "aint",and I have collected way more than enough "fair weather friends,over the past 40+years. Get over yourself,please !!
How has Jones not been indicted yet if campaign contributions were a prerequisite for doing business in Dekalb. After all, where do you think Ellis learned it from? I suppose it will all come out at trial, should be interesting.
This blog has completely gotten away from ,hopefully,it's original purpose.The only positive things even remotely note worthy,or informative have been the attempts by one poster,trying to keep us updated on the pension issues,and any potential pay raises,the one post by the officer's wife,and a few "attaboys" from the appreciative public. I admit I have contributed to some of this, by expressing confrontational posts to the "c.s anonymous" posters,both citizens and officers alike. Guess I am just to used to doing it face to face. Negativity breeds negativity. I,of all people,know that,because I tried to avoid it my entire career. Must be terrible to have to deal with all these departmental issues,that you have absolutely no control over,and be negative yourself. Be careful not to take this home with you,and expose your family to this mess. Not only will you poss lose your job someday,you will probably lose your family,as well. Regardless to any,and all,take care
