BTW rumor has it that FF/BK/FTF/MB/CQ has directed another recon mission on a location where alcohol is served. A plan was uncovered recently where IA would covertly put up crime scene tape at the next Dolphin home game tailgate and then FF, disguised as Dolphin Denny, would bring in a uncontaminated portable potty via forklift to the crime scene and collect urine samples from all HPD sworn members. Hopefully your aim is steady and your stream is strong as we would not want any friendly fire to hit BK while he is holding the piss cup!
This week I have spoken on the phone and had in-person meetings with Hallandale Beach people on the body camera issue. It all went well. The Commission of COHB will discuss a proposal Monday night at their meeting to hire a use of force consultant. Sound familiar?
Yesterday I had a meeting at the BSO/PSB and ran in to the Sheriff, aka SJI. He was walking out of a meeting with the new FDLE/SAC and subsequently introduced him to me. He is from the Tampa Office. He replaces the current SAC who was demoted to agent. She is a BFF of FTF! He complimented both the current and former PBA/FDLE Officers Jim Futch and Telly Sands.
After thinking about Telly–and when and why she left–it brought back memories of the first exodus from Hollywood (1980-1983) when about a dozen experienced Detectives left for FDLE and 10 road patrol Officers left for MDPD. As a result of them leaving, the City got smart and returned pay and benefits to a competitive level. The last exodus (2011) severely impacted HPD, which lost many experienced people, mainly to BSO.
Today the exodus continues. FNG just reported he went up to personnel to get a copy of his file and they placed his name on the waiting for file list. Ouch!
Yesterday afternoon I met with the new CM from Hollywood. We first met in 1986 when he first worked in Hollywood. Straight Dope…Waz built the City of Miramar! We spoke for over an hour. It went well.
At 2 pm today the PBA’s General Counsel, Julio Gonzalez, meets with Hollywood HR on step one association grievance on the Drug free workplace Article in our CBA.
I meet with Mayor Bober tomorrow regarding “the letter.” Include below are two responses from citizens.
Next Wednesday 12/17/14 at 5PM, the attorneys and I will be at citizen comments, before the Hollywood Commission, to address “the letter.” Your presence and support is requested.
