First some good news. We met with Broward County Asst. Administrator Alphonso Jefferson Jr. and Director Rick Carpani regarding the dispatch issues relating to radio traffic at HPD. They have assessed the situation and within two months a second dispatch channel will be added to Hollywood, splitting the city, east and west, 24/7, 365. Please keep reporting glitches by completing the “ticket” so operational problems can be addressed as they come up.
A good leader sets a good example, does not ask anything from his troops he/she would not ask of themselves, and does not coerce others to cover up when he/she is in error. We all heard about the baggage FF/CQ/MD/FTF brought up from the banana republic government he ascended from so we should not be surprised about the policy violations surrounding 33-1412-160282.
SOP 231 sec.I FF failed to notify FLPD about the crash which occurred in that jurisdiction on 12/4/14.
SOP 231 sec. III D) 2 BK failed to photograph any crashes involving any city owned or leased vehicle.
SOP 231 sec. X A) 4 MB failed to ensure Crime scene unit respond and photograph the scene and all vehicles involved, regardless of the damage or evidence of damage.
SOP 214 CQ failed to complete the City of Hollywood Accident/Injury Report and have it forwarded to risk management at City Hall.
The incident location listed on the general report is inconsistent with the location referenced in the report narrative. I have sent two Major e-mails requesting clarification to Paulie wall banger, former lead singer of the “Drywalls” but have not received clarification as of yet.
On must ask how can a leader effectively lead and discipline anyone when he himself does not follow the policies he enacts?
Went to Tallassee this week for a workshop on a bill mandating body cams for be worn by Florida Police Officers and Sheriff’s Deputies. After testimony and speaking to legislators both prior to and after the workshop meeting we can bet Pud has a better chance of getting rid of his purple mustache than this bill becoming law.
