eg: The Amadou Diallo incident in the Bronx.
Same goes for the emergency services.
No. You eat anything criminal, or any serious disciplinary, another police service won’t touch you. I’m talking about members who are clean. There are a couple good people I might reach out to once we get our contract and see if they want to consider different options. I know some people there with really impressive backgrounds and skill sets who get stuck doing nothing but working first response on the road for the first 6-8 years and barely get to touch investigations in a meaningful way. The municipal model works the way it does because it has to, but some good minds are squandered potentially for years. If I was at OPS ith less than ten years in right now I’d seriously look at finding another option.
