    End of Watch - PhilipCal

    I am sad to report that our friend and longtime o.com member, Philip Callahan, aka PhilipCal, passed away in Montgomery, Alabama, on May 11, 2017. He was 74.

    Originally from California, Phil served for 4 ½ years in the United States Marine Corps, after which he went to work for the (then)...

    replied to Background check
    Assuming you have applied with a civil service agency, you should be able to appeal your disqualification to the Civil Service Board. It is then incumbent upoin the police department to present evidence that you meet their criteria for disqualification and that their disqualification criteria has a...

    replied to Problems with hot-swapping patrol cars
    Have the department establish an SOP requiring each Sergeant to note on his daily log what car is assigned to which officer during the shifts. If the next shift finds the car full of crap, they can go to the log, find out who had the car and the appropriate person can be held accountable.

    replied to No plates on a vehicle
    Most states prohibit parking a motor vehicle on public property that does not display evidence of registration (license plates). In my state, such vehicles are towed and stored. When the registered owner provides proof of valid registration, a citation is issued to the vehicle and it is released....

  • Were they sugar free mints? Was the beer domestic or imported? The answers to these questions will make a big difference to the background investigator.

    In addition, have you turned your life around?

    replied to Question about driving record/CSO
    It shows a consistent pattern of recklessness, irresponsibility and an unwillingness to conform to the law and rules of society. Were you to be hired and later get in a wreck with your government vehicle that involved excessive speed on your poart, the employing agency could be on the hook for negligent...

    I can't speak for Houston PD, but I did backgrounds for a few years and later supervised them, so I will answer from tha point of view.

    Let's take these issues one at a time starting with your father. If I understand correctly he is in Vietnam and you have had no information as to his...

    replied to Looking back at your academy
    Talk about a question that opens Pandora’s Box.

    My first academy was in 1970. Back then, POST had just been created and departments throughout the state were scrambling to become POST certified.

    Mine was the first POST Academy run by my state agency. We couldn’t strip...

  • It doesn't matter what the record says. It doesn't matter what you were or weren't convicted of. It doesn't matter if a conviction was deferred, set aside or expunged. What counts is your actual conduct in the matter.

    I tell this story periodically to folks like yourself that come here....

    replied to Handicap Parking
    No. The California Vehicle Code requires that your vehicle either have a handicapped plate or display the actual placard.

    It should be noted that you can have both. If you take your vehicles and placard to the DMV or AAA (if you are a member) your regular license plates will be replaced...

  • These are California's standard http://lib.post.ca.gov/Publications/Vision.pdf which are similar to the ones Iowa quoted you. However, the ones I linked you to go a little farther in that they explain the logic and job relationship behind the requirements and they also explain Federal anti-discrimination...

  • Vision standards will vary from agency to agency. However, most follow common basic guidelines. Print this out http://lib.post.ca.gov/Publications/Vision.pdf, take it to your Opthalmologist and ask him to read it. Then ask him to pretend he is the police department's doctor who is being paid to represent...

  • Arthur,

    Are you talking about the new (recent) building or the old one? The old one was often referred to as the Glass House.

  • Yes, I am retired and even then I don't take those type of 1099 jobs. I'm speaking of those who are still working as active officers. Taking a 1099 security or law enforcement job loses you all of the protections you normally have when working on duty or on departmental overtime. No workers comp, no...

  • It depends on where you are.

    In my state it means the can fill a vacancy taking anyone from the top 3 positions on the list. They can pick that person for any reason and don't have to state why. So, if they have one vacancy, they can pick from # 1, 2 or 3 on the list. Let's say they...

  • Urban,

    Just to add to you thoughts.

    If you are working a 1099 job you are self employed and not working for your department.

    1. If you become injured, there is no workers comp or 4850 time, because you are your own employer. This goes on your own medical insurance...

    replied to I want my car back but he wont give it to me.
    OK, let's think this through for a minute. Let's assume your boyfriend calls you up this evening and says, "You're right, I'm wrong. I surrender, the car is yours."

    What are you going to do if the car is 300 miles away and you can't afford to go there and get it?
