UPDATE 20 September 07
One year ago on 16 September 2006 the first part (written qualifying portion) of the Lt’s exam was administered. This upcoming 23 September 07 will mark three months since the Re-Test was conducted. As of this date the City has not issued any results or provided any information as to the status of the examination despite our inquiries. Through our attorneys we have brought this to the attention of the Federal Court appointed overseer. In addition, I have recently spoken with some Aldermen and requested that they make an inquiry into the status of this examination. We intend to stay focused on this situation and demand that the City, either issue the results or at the very least provide factual information as to the reason for the delay and the status of the examination.
This so-called testing process is not only an insult to our members that have put forth the effort in preparing for this examination, but further serves to demoralize our sergeants who serve as the first line of supervision for the Department.
