I found this tid-bit on Police One.com
On Wednesday, city officials confirmed the training class for some 50 recruits was postponed from Feb. 19 to May 19.
How in the hell does the department/city justify this?
The reason for the delay, city officials said, was to get more "seasoned'' cops on the street.
Over the next three months while the recruit class holds, the city will move officers working desk jobs back onto the street, said Wendy Abrams, spokeswoman for the city's office of budget and management. Money will be spent to fill those "administrative" positions until the recruits start in May.
What an absolute crock of SHIT! You assholes may be able to fill out an ethics form but you surely can't practice being ethical. These men and women had jobs and put in their two weeks notice to take the job you offered them. How do they pay their rent/mortgage, groceries, car payments and all the other expenses people incur just to survive during this 3 month hiatus?
It is already March and we don't expect a class until 19 May, so don't expect a new group of 50 until mid November to be on the street. Keep in mind we have an attrition rate of about 600 a year...........Unbelievable!!!!
For all you FOP haters, there is nothing they can do about this, these poor souls are not covered by the bargaining unit. All Donahue can do is express his displeasure.
