This Monday the 22nd, and Wed there are IAD interrogations...on that, if you are on social media,be careful what you post. The dept monitors your posts, actively seeking to bring you up on charges.
There was a shooting last night (Fri) on Chippewa n Pearl St. None of the local media have reported it as of 6 am Sat morning...
Arbitrator Butto decided we do NOT have to provide documentation to return to work after calling off sick...
Have to say I was surprised at DD's departure. Hopefully the relationship with the new admin can improve moving forward.
We have Arb on Fri regarding ERT and the lack of training offered to the entire patrol division. There is talk of a settlement agreement on this topic.
Recent retiree Mark Tripp had a wide array of newer and former Coppers wishing him well. The guy from the dungeon even made an appearance....GTHBA !!!
Seems the Admins experiment to end the PO details(Chippewa/Allen) in B-dist was a failure. On one of the coldest evenings of the year you had Officers that normally would be answering citizen complaint calls, tied up on Chippewa and Allen St, answering "shots fired" and "fight calls". I'm sure once the criminal element becomes aware that there are no police working those details, lawlessness will prevail. Have to feel bad for the businesses and law abiding citizens that will become victims....
Great time at Sean O'Briens party !!! Wishing him the best !!
The office will be closed Monday in observance of the MLK holiday. Tues/Wed in Albany for PCNY mtgs. As always call my cell if necessary.
Congrats to all those promoted !! Very nice ceremony !! Today (Wed) we are preparing for the ERT grievance, regarding the City not training the patrol division as was stipulated...we are then meeting up with the recently promoted LT's. Thurs at 1300 is the monthly General Membership mtg, again at Bison City...Thursday evening there is a party for South District Council member Chris Scanlon. He has been a staunch supporter of law enforcement and the PBA's interests. It is being held at Doc Sullivans, 5:30pm, $35.
We have the Board of Directors mtg on Monday the 8th. On Thursday we have the General Membership mtg.
We are hearing there is a promotional ceremony Tues the 9th at 1300 in the Academy. We have not seen an official list yet. We know notifications have been made. Congrats to those being promoted. Inexplicably it seems more than qualified individuals have been passed over. To those we apoligize and are looking further into this.
There are a couple retirement party's coming up. Narco LT Sean O'Brien's is the 12th at Lucarrelli's 6-10pm. Traffic PO's Ivy James and Colonel Chaney are having a get together on the 16th at Marinaro's Larkinville Tavern 7-11. B-Dist PO Mark Tripp at J's White Elephant (old Jacobi's)on the 18th 7-10pm. Another is being held for LT Joe Makowski at the Glab Post in Lackawanna on Feb 15th, 6-10pm. Det Henry Velez on the 16th at the Rusty Buffalo.
Happy to report Capt Antoino is doing much better !!
Happy New Year !! Stay safe and warm. I want to thank Kevin for his dedication and years of service to the PBA. I appreciate and enthusiastically look forward to having the opportunity to serve as PBA President. It is truly an honor. I want to welcome Erin McCarthy as the incoming 1st Vice President and look forward to working along side her, Mark, Kristin, Frank ( and Tina ) to improve the working conditions for every PBA member in the ranks. Bring on 2018!!!
