  • Possible last nail for '09 classes?

    There is an interview that Chief Distelzweig did with Chanel 4. Based on that it does not look good for a 2009 class. Considering the city is getting $4 million in a grant for things like classes I am really surprised & disappointed that they are not going to have at least one class:

    “Depending on what happens with the economy the rest of the year, our budget for 2010 obviously, I will be lobbying with the director, mayor and city council for hiring in 2010,“ he said.

    Well I hope thats a good thing. I just received my conditional letter of employment in the mail. It was signed and it also had the new chiefs name on it! I really hope I can get in to a class this year.

                  I was told by my BI that they would just file for an extension. The extension would make our list good until 2011 due to the unusual circumstances! So to answer your question, NO!

                        are we going to get anything official on that?

                            BI said they wouldn't file for an extension until the list is ready to expire. I'm assuming once an extension is excepted or rejected we will receive offical paperwork.

                              I had heard something similar about the extension. Apparently you don't hear anything until just before your list expires. My BI said that he had not heard anything about them giving an extension yet. There was also a new batch of letters recently mailed. I also heard that CPD was eligible for 4 million from the "stimulus" plan. However, there are a lot of stipulations to the "free" money. Are you surprised? It is still an option for CPD to apply for the money, but the city and the Chief are trying to determine if it is worth it or not! Who knows? At this point I support any decision made for the department as long as it benefits the officers already serving. As much as I want to work for CPD I would rather see the current officers have all the support and equipment they need to keep themselves safe. Ill get my shot when its the right time!
