Angela Hill: NOPD Details ? the War Rages On

Police officers lost round one in their battle to keep their detail work under their own system.  A federal judge ruled in the City of New Orleans’ favor yesterday.  It may be a battle lost, but the war still rages. 
As you know, the New Orleans Police Department is under a federal consent decree governing many reforms in the department. But, no part of the decree has elicited more outrage from the rank and file than the new method of divvying out” details.” 
In the past, detail work was negotiated and scheduled by the police themselves.  After a federal investigation, a federal prosecutor described the old system as “an aorta of corruption.”  And, even though that federal prosecutor resigned, under investigation, there is a new Office of Secondary Employment that will be making the decisions on which officers go where. 
Police officers are not happy and there are many reasons why.  That’s what we are going to talk about today.

businesses may want the same officers to work the same detail but it's not fair to all NOPD officers that some get a peice of the pie and not others. I agree with the consent decree.

Officers have spent years setting up these details to put food on the tables and give their families a decent quality of life. If officers were getting paid what federal law enforcement makes or the prosecutors that suggested this foolishness they would not even need to work details.

Also every nopd officer don't work details while others it's very much needed.
