Third string coach FF while leading from the front (lol) at the Police Appreciation day decided to ride the Police Motorcycle. TMOFS advised, due to his inexperience as a certified rider he should not be on a motorcycle, however he continued to use too much throttle and rode the brake too hard which resulted in a $900.00 repair for a new clutch.
In addition FF/BK is tops in members who have not yet electronically signed in for the policy and procedures as directed. Momma’s boy leads the pack with 32. Click Here for more – http://www.bcpba.org/pdf/Chief-of-police-32-times.pdf
PBA attorney Rhea Grossman and others were victorious in getting the DAVID Lawsuits against members dismissed. However TMOFS advised the City of Hollywood who had one defendant/member who already paid the FHP Trooper prior to the dismissal.

Why fumbles? Well a general employee who works at HPD was investigated by IA for theft due to allegations of factitious overtime compensation. The civilian apparently gave a statement and TMOFS advised some admissions of guilt were asserted. Well on date 107 of the investigation FF held a disciplinary hearing and was made aware that the AFMSCE contract has a provision where discipline must be administered within 90 days.
OOPS! The civilian will walk and FF has another offensive turnover.
The best is for last. Attached is a copy of a spreadsheet intercepted by The PBA. I do not know if this is a proposal, recommendation or the findings of another consultant but the raises for some City Hall peeps are off the chain. This is yet another morale booster.

One of the fab four, “Dick” Blattner had a discussion with a very senior Member who openly discussed the pay and benefit reduction of 2011 and how it impacted him personally. Blattner’s advice was for him to leave and go to another agency. CLEARLY the plan is to drive the senior members out and brainwash the new officers. I guess that is why most of you still have an invalid Police ID card with Chad’s name on it.
Those of you who are tirelessly whoring the community one on one about CSR/BK/ and the Fab Four are doing a GREAT job, Keep up the good work and keep the pressure on!
BTW I ran in to Tom Honan from Hallandale Beach this morning and he asked me to put a rumor to rest. He has no desire to come to HPD in any capacity. FF is still shopping for a #2.
