A GLIMPSE FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GOLDEN BADGE


Hello fellow officers:

It is with heavy heart  that I come to you with visions of the other side of the golden badge. I was promoted out of the June class and I am here to tell you that is is not all peaches and cream. I, like many before me, thought I was god's gift to my new command but how wrong I was.The only way I can describe it is that it is like going to a new school where upon you meet new teachers, new friends, new bullies and NEW PROBLEMS. You are not a junior or a senior entering this establishment but instead a freshman. I sit here and read the comments every other night and it boggles the mind how some of you are in a rush to be made. Sorry to say it but once you finally get made it's rookie city all over again no matter how much time you had on the job or how thick your knee pads are.  I had some time on the job when i was made but that all went south when I hit my new command. WE ARE THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL AND WE WILL GET THE SHIIT END OF THE STICK! I will spare you all the details but let's just say that you will be savoring the **** for quite some time. It is for this reason and this reason alone I return to share some words of wisdom. I will use the words from one of my favorite 80's movies and say this to you....."STAY GOLDEN , PONY BOY.....STAY GOLDEN"

 

Always remember that the grass is not always greener on the other side and it will take many seasons of piled on menure before your lawn looks spectacular. 

Always remember, slow your roll and do not be in a rush to step into the big boy shoes. Enjoy what you have now.

Doggie, thanks. I do not mean to scare anyone by posting my story but instead look to calm all those who are whipping themselves into a fervor. There is no rush to be made especially when you are rushing to get handed a bag of shiit. Relax and rest assured that your time will come to tongue the anus of the job. Do not be surprised when you emerge with an anal hair or two in between your teeth for this, my friend, is the nature of the the beast here at the NYPD.

However, sgt to Lt.......almost seamless

Lol I love the "your time will come to tongue the anus of the job." part. I bet you are right n all but the way I c it, we must pay our "dues" to be able to enjoy the rank of LT one day :)

This guy isn't even a cop; who the hell on this job calls it a BADGE. It's a shield....

Que, hate to burst you bubble but I, like so many others, do call it a badge and I am a cop so what is your point again?

It is badge, nypd just gotta be different calling it shield.

The words badges and shields are used interchangeably by members of the NYPD. The usage of the aforementioned word does not denote the fact that a person is not a member of the NYPD. I am guessing that Que1999 is not a detective.

You don't have to be a detective to know a useless troll on this forum... You didn't have to respond 3 times with 3 different aliases to give yourself more credibility. On that note, yea troll your right.... I ALWAYS hear guys on the NYPD call it a badge. Not a shield, what was I thinking....

Seems like the little boy has gotten snippy. He has a thin skin if you ask me and quite the imagination. I hereby retract the initial assessment of him not being a detective. I'll replace it with the word "defective" instead. Sleep well, little;e boy and try not to get so easily hooked.

The 'golden shield' is great. If you were a complainer as a cop you will be as a boss of any rank.

 seriously, the only people that call it a badge are the street delegates looking to make a ccrb.

Exactly, it's like what I tell guys when this discussion comes up for someone whose on the list, "What kind of boss you think he or she will be?".. Simple. What kind of cop were they? If they were a useless cop they'll be the same way as a boss, if they were miserable... Then you'll have a miserable guy. If they were great and all the other cops they work with can attest to that, well good for you your gonna have a great boss. Unless you get one of those guys who never worked as a cop, but now since they're a boss they wanna be out there acting all crazy because they don't have to deal with the bag afterwards..... That's another kind of boss.

Looking at some of the comments on this thread I know who exactly will be a loser boss. If they are tools as a cop they definitely will be tools as a boss. Sadly, some guys never know when to stop abusing the cool aid. I pity the people who will be supervised by que1999 and airborneguy.

Officer Groves was pretty happy to see me the other day. I ran 15 flights of stairs for him. Look back through this forum, find my name and ask my cops what they think of me. I have nothing to hide which is why I'm one of the few whose real name is on this forum(maybe the only).

Assbags will remain assbags, and good cops (and persons) will stay good cops no matter what rank they are. Anyone who hasn't learned that either has no time on the job or falls in the former bunch.

Running errands for for fellow knee pad wearers? WTF? Yep I guess I pegged it when I said you were a "TOOL". Some people are born with cool aid residue on their lips. There are destined to be the job's tools...LOL!

I havent posted in a while. But, I have to agree with FATBACK, although I do love my new rank, as he stated its not all gravy. Only reason why I still check this site is to see when classes are going in so I can pray my command will get a new Sgt there by giving me some seniority. Make no mistake, you will be the rookie again. Don't care if you have 15+ years on. And although we all understand what having no time in rank means before you get promoted, it doesn't mean you'll enjoy dealing with what that entails just because you have a gleaming new shield or badge or whatever. So my little bit of wisdom is, get ready to deal with (some of these possibilities) no OT, flying to other commands regularly, the uncertainty of random tour changes, the possibility of your steady tour or regular RDO schedule being changed, getting all the sh^t details, getting the sh^t assignment at those details, etc etc etc... So in closing, HURRY THE F UP AND GET PROMOTED, Rookie LOL!!

wtf did you expect when you got promoted? i never posted on this site because i dont have any "inside" information but this is unreal. some posts here are informative but i never seen so much bitching and moaning. whoever posted this spent the time to tell all of us that its going to be different going to a new cmd where we will be new. get a life bro. thats whats wrong with this job, theres to many fn crybabies. just do your job. why did you study and take the test? i did it to better the life of me and my family. you shouldve stayed in whatever cmd you were did crime analysis and blow the co. i now feel bad that i took the time away from my son to comment on this nonsense.  best of luck to all the workers who will be great bosses.  the job needs more of those then these cry babies

Spike you must be one regular supercop to come on bash a few people just out to give a word to the wise. Laughable, and what's your great contribution to those guys waiting to get promoted? Don't cry? Stay in your Cmd? Thanks Einstein.

what's the wise word or contribution at saying that you shouldnt anticipate being promoted to sgt because you might work an rdo or your going to be treated like a rookie again? sounds like complaining to me. i was telling the babies complaining to stay in their commands einstein.
