We contacted a couple of P.O.s that we know and got a good idea of how things went down. According to our source D/S Charles Williams was in the district for the evening and Commander Carrol was with ADS Debra Kirby. Carrol makes it known that he doesn't want anyone checking off prior to 15 after the hour. Carrol walks in the station, early, and there are a few guys standing around the radio room waiting to turn in their equipment. Carrol then quips "didn't everyone get the memo about check off time?" Well low and behold some smart ass has to raise his hand and say "I didn't get the memo"
Supposedly this is the cause of the meltdown. Should Carrol have come down on the whole watch? A supervisor should never reprimand or correct the group when your target is just a few. Our source however, tells us the problem isn't just 2-3 guys but is a prevailing mindset on the watch. The sad thing is a sarcastic P.O. thinks his sarcasm is appropriate to use with an already irate boss. This is either a total lack of respect or maybe pure stupidity.
Since that incident rumours are now running rampant over at SCC...take this for example:Second City Cop
My source is high ranking, very reliable and trustworthy. My confidence level in this information is HIGH. REPEATING HIGH LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE.
Friday, will bring about the following changes:
D/C launched but may receive a lateral position out of Patrol Division.
Lt. Richie Scotchbreath will be transferred to an inside position at Headquarters, placed on personal concern for an "addiction." City is very worried that if he smashes into 5 school kids with a M plate car while impaired that this blog is proof in itself that it was widely known that a problem existed and was not addressed by the City.
A certain P.O. (D.B.) will be placed back to his assigned position at 051 (Airport Law South).
Two Tactical Sgt's and a Watch Sgt. will be reassigned.
But this may not be good news for the 8th District. The new D/C may have been "told" to do whatever he/she has to in order to correct the problems on third watch and to "closely supervisor the 3rd watch". Meaning their complaining of a "yelling", publicly and when they were in the "wrong" may cause many to wish they would have kept their mouths shut.
Good Luck To All and Good Night
The above writer seems to confirm what we heard about 3rd watch. we aren't passing judgement but relating what we heard. Be careful what you ask for people.....you just might get it.
The other rumour we tried tackling over there was the one that stated that no tact or gang car was to be west of Pulaski. As our guys relate to us its pretty hard to be west of Pulaski when all you do is bullshit edge missions and activity related to the DOC. That being said our guys said no way was any order or directive given to deny them working west of Pulaski. In fact they told us that there are a couple of cars that work exclusively west of Pulaski(of their own accord)
