« Hollenbeck Homicide Detectives are investigating the death of 27-year-old Angel Serna Mancilla | Main | Police Arrest Woman for Joining Her Daughter’s Fight with Another Child »

January 23, 2013



The other day I ran into an officer who I haven't seen for a long time walking with several documents. He stated that he was on his way to PAB fighting to keep this job. I knew him as a role model officer and could see in his eyes his dispair. I am approaching 17 years all in streets and have a problem with the way things are currenly operating. Supervision is status quo and mediocre at best. Many are waiting to retire and many do not care like the few left. I hope he keeps his job maybe if we had more supervisors for every 10 officers in patrol operations we would not have to fire offices. Not say these huge frivolous lawsuits. We cannot sacrifice first-line supervision.

FTO speaking up! I'm with you my friend. The department doesn't have much light showing, with respect to your 1 supervisor per every 10 officers. Most of the officers on the current Sergeants list will do nothing but exacerbate the status quo problems, because they have ZERO time on the job themselves. The department NEEDS to re-due the promotions prerequisites to include no less than 10 years in an OPERATIONAL patrol assignment. Far to many less than qualified and incompetent officers, become less than qualified and incompetent supervisors! And we keep promoting them and making the service we provide our bosses (The Community) sub-par at best. They sure do promote a bunch of command staff though....Cannot miss promoting your buddies. And the police commission is supposed to make sure the things you and I have outlined are NOT happening. They have become mostly a joke lately. But hey, let them keep promoting under the status quo antiquated guidelines.. and they can keep getting sued, and loosing, because they have INCOMPETENT "Managers" not a professional police department, with qualified leaders. Not many people have much respect for supervision anymore.... And for GOOD reason! It used to be that you may not have liked a certain supervisor, but you respected them... Not anymore! There are very few worth their salt!
