Getting ready


As someone about to be promoted within the next couple months, what procedures would recently promoted sergeants suggest I brush up on before promotion?

Just email Yanosik. He's giving out his elite guide for free so you can have access to his guide as needed.

Seriously Gdass?, glad to know you are the almighty one who remembers everything from a 2000 page book that you read 2 or three years ago and have never had to actually do any of it. That you know exactly what you have to do and who you have to notify in every situation the book calls for. YOU MUST Be A Gem to work for.

Since you are going to be such a by the book boss read up on 206-02. I am sure when a cop gives you a hard time you will have the inability to think outside the box so that procedure wiil help you.

you just learn as you go along your not going to remember **** from the patrol guide when you have a double murder coupled with a suicide.  get real man the patrol guide was just to pass the test.  being a sergeant will be a trial by fire.

I'm not expecting to remember that God awful book, but there are so many sergeants that come out of BMOC and a year later they are still calling the LT to every single scene and calling the squad 3 times a day on how to classify a complaint.

If you are calling the LT to your scenes, and asking the SQUAD how to classify something, then you might be a Sergeant, but you are no boss. Be humble, be confident, make decisions and stick to them, and for God's sake, LET THE COPS DO THEIR JOBS, AND BACK THEM WHEN THEY DO!!!

These sergeants do this because they have no balls, not because they lack patrol guide knowledge. The biggest piece of advise I can give as a 4 year sergeant is this: make an informed good faith decision and stick to it! As long as you can explain why you did something you will never get in trouble, even if it's wrong. Don't worry about the book, you will most likely not open it again until the next exam.

I can't believe someone will criticize this guy for asking such a basic and important question. Knowedge is power and it also complements your other skills as a leader. If you feel you need to brush up on some procedures go ahead and read them. That might also help you prepare for  the next LT exam. Send Yanosik an email  as someone already suggested.I'm sure he will agree with your way of thinking .

 That comment was beyond uncalled for. When I am on the desk and have some down time I like to go into the patrol guide and brush up on certain things. As asinine as that book is, there are still very relevant procedures. 212, 218, etc etc. There is nothing wrong with asking a question like that. The more you know the better, especially when dealing with rookies that never vouchered s**t, let alone narcotics, a vehicle, weapon etc. Also looking up active interim orders will help as well. This job is gong through a major transition, so it's good to keep up on certain things.

We got a bunch of sensitive ladies here... The comment that pissed some of you off was obviously sarcastic. All GDass meant was that if you are BARELY active on this job and you already studied/passed a sergeants test, then you should know what to brush up on in the patrol guide. You people would never last 5 minutes in my unit with skin that thin!!!!

Now seriously, go read over 212-42 and 218-22.
