  • What is the role of the police sargent?

    With so many different supervisor ranks in police departments I have always wondered just what exactly dose a Sargent in say the Chicago Police Department do?

    He's the guy hoping to have the right "phone call" to be the Watch Commander some day..

    If Sgt. and W/C are boggling your mind, youngster, wait until you get a load of our "Exempt" ranks. Most of us don't know what some of their functions are..

          When I worked where there were seargeants, mine made the shift schedule, approved reports, and acted as the field supervisor. His supervisor was the lieutenant who sat around the station looking at porn all night. Well, that's not entirely true. Sometimes he'd go to the ER and drink coffee. I heard him make a traffic stop once also and I about ran off the road from it.

            he's the guy that gets to cuss out all the rookies and tell 'em how stupid they are...

                You must have stripes, you're practically the only one to spell it correctly!

                  Crap, I just noticed I misspelled sergeants. Ugh. Embarassing.

                    Some Sergeants are good leaders, and some are just hypocrites, writing you up for the same stuff they did on the road.

                      Nevermind. That was a good story, but I don't want to slam the guy.

                        Hahahaha, nice. We could tell "Sergeant" stories all day... You do have some that are true leaders and would back you when necessary, and properly punish you without being derogatory when you screw up. Those are the ones I enjoy working for. It's the kind that let the chevrons go to their heads, don't back up their guys, never leave the office and quarterback you for everything you do, that **** me off... Those crappy Sergeants have taught me one thing though, that if I ever test, that I'll be a hell of a lot better leader than them..

                          As a patrol sergeant, I am the guy that gets to go to a hot call, have fun, re assure you that you are doing a good job, ask if you need anything then get the hell out of dodge sticking you with all of the paperwork. Occasionally I travel around the beat stopping at all of the 24 hr joints ensuring the coffee is hot for when you stop by to get yours, I am also the guy that for no reason other than I can, stays after shift “ensuring” your paperwork is completed.
                          It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

                            Our patrol sergeants are watch commanders - first line supervisors. Each shift has one sergeant, so he/she is in the field most of the time. Sergeants supervise on calls, give advice, are leaders, handle citizen complaints (complaints only go to IA if they are too serious to be resolved by the deputy's immediate supervisor), write evaluations, and make sure the deputies have what they need to do their jobs. One of our sergeants said it's like being an FTO to eight people.
