  • What's the dumbest thing your dept. has done?

    Not to start too much mess, but what's the biggest "duh!" moment your department has done?

    Years ago, early in the AIDS worries, our dept. gave us some big puncture resistant gloves to search people with. They looked like big dishwashing gloves and were "puncture resistant" to prevent needle sticks while searching prisoners.

    They came stapled together.

        They made us practice shooting blindfolded in the event we lost our vision. The bad thing is, after being blindfolded, they spun us in a circle about ten times then we had to pull our guns out and shoot.

          Just kidding. I couldn't think of anything so I made something up.

            "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson

              Our department makes us put 6 rounds into our semi automatic shen we qualify just in case the one or two deputies with revolvers show up.

              I did not make that up.

                So I'm assuming that combat reloading and administrative reloading are not practiced.

                The politicians here put a corrupt inept a-hole in the Chief's spot.

                  Let's see ---- using FWD cars for Patrol, using Tahoes for urban Patrol (Gas hogs!), using Crown vics as Patrol cars (fire bombs!!!), appointing Chiefs exclusivly from within the Dept (there WERE better aplicants), initiating a "discipline matrix" for officers that they inconsistently applied to supervisors, allow officers with 2yrs (total) on to be FTOs, require college for a Sgt. exam, require detective certification for all specialty assignments, adoptede a No Pursuit policy, allowed citizens to file complaints against officers anonymously..how much more do you want?

                        The list is VERY long, starting with letting Chief Bayan Lewis and Bureau Chief John White leave....then they promoted me.....

                        A shorter list would be what have they done right.
