APRIL PROMOTIONS


Has anyone heard of any captain promotions coming up?

Negative. With the overage of 53 Capts, I don't expect promotions anytime soon.

Don't kill me if it doesn't actually happen but I heard from a pretty reliable source that as of today they are planning on promoting Captains on March 29th.

Sorry for the confusion. There are promotions on the 29th but NO CAPTAINS.

Great. Knew that was unlikely. how can they promote people to a rank that has an overage. I'll be surprised if there are any captain promotions this year.

 Or it could be Executive promotions of Captain and above which would normalize the ranks.

Only if they promote 53 captains to DI, or whatever the overage is.

Ya which we know they won't be doing, even with the overage certain boroughs still don't have X.Os. As well as specialized units.

 So which captains will not have category 1 cars?  Or does this mean that every captain in the city now has category 1?

 Pretty much.  The only exception might be 1pp or other admin captains who typically don't have cars.

Have a better chance picking a 100% correct NCAA March Madness bracket than figure when they'll start these promotions back up.  This mayor and the current administration will be packing there bags by the time this list is done.  Shame that the next guy will probably do away with this whole executive process.

Im just curious how did such a surplus of captains get promoted? To be over by 53??! Why did the job let this get to that point?

They didn't over promote. Apparently, they took something like 50 captain positions and made them DI slots.

Shouldn't that be an easy fix. If there are now about 50 new DI slots, they should be vacant, so promote 50 captains to DI and the surplus is over. Right?

 Correct, but it requires to be balanced with the budget and that's the issue.  Long wait ahead.

Nobody is disputing the numbers. However no matter how they spin it they are very short with XOs citywide. Something will have to give.

They should not of started promoting off this list knowing they were going to reallocate positions. But like many other reorganizations throughout the Dept. you just have people making these changes on the whim without any logic or common sense--just because they think they're smarter than everyone else. Thus the predicament that stands.

Technocrat is on the money. They didn't start the clock on my lieutenant list until the first class was promoted in deference to the overage created by the mass promotion from the previous list. Absolutely no such foresight here, ridiculous.

Spoke with someone on the CEA board and he stated in sum: do not look at vacancies when thinking about future promotions, it is all about the budget. I wasn't very attentive because I had other things pressing my mind, but he did say there should be about 15 captains getting made the 29th and more in the start of the fiscal year. Is anyone on here in mentoring yet?

There are no captain promotions...no one is in mentoring if you don't believe what I post.

Promotions are the 29th...presumably because of the holiday.
As of Friday morning, no Lieutenants were scheduled to be promoted to Captain.
It has long been rumored that this would be the first promotion for executives under the new electronic survey/resume process.
Even if they did several, it is insane to think they will do 50+.

There is some truth to that statement about the budget v. vacancies.
Unless they start pushing Capt's out of admin spots (HQ, etc), they remain short in patrol commands.
So basically, if someone can find the money, they can make more captains to fill the void.

I guess the question really is- what's more likely to happen, pushing Capt's out to patrol or budgeting funds for new ones?
Or, the saddest answer... Leaving it as is.

Grow up "skiguy"...You're a Police Lieutenant?  What reason could I possibly have to make that up?  I never get information so I never post, I happen to get some info from someone I believe is important in the chain of command when it comes to executive union issues and is in the know...so I share it.  Maybe he meant there were 15 or so executive promotions as in Captain to D.I and so on.  But watch for an increase in executive promotions come the new fiscal year, watch the budget and not the vacancies.
