Trust! What a beautiful joke

Let them do what they were hired to do...be the police!

Murders will decrease if they are firm and aggressive

What a joke! Should the Chief of Police ask parents to be more involved in their kids lives? If you're the parent that the chief is speaking to, does his request cause you to bat an eye.....F No!

For the record violent crime isn't up, the number of shootings is about on par with recent years, the only difference is that the victims are dying.

Someone said that involvement in narcotics increases your risk of getting killed?

Good thing we don't have a narcotics problem in Louisville.

SOS! When you don't have a clue what to do as it always has been with this dept, hire some new administrator at a giant salary, make a new task force, get the west ends input or throw a sh!t load of money at it and hope it goes away. This dept is becoming a bigger joke everyday.

What about Operation Llama? It could easily happen here and there is no contingency plan.

What lmpd needs to do is sit back let them commit the crimes then make arrests at a later date that way no one is offended

It's not going to get better either. This department is still running operation hug a thug. This department is more interested in going after an officer that cursed someone they were fighting with, than a drug dealer or a car thief. Body cams will just make it worse.

Another task force, really!!! This is not the cure nor the answer to the problem. Isn't that what V.I.P.E.R was designed for????? I don't see nothing they do.

When Abramson was in Wilmington, he told the lunch crowd at the Hotel du Pont that a combined government put more cops on the streets, provided a more efficient emergency medical service, and allowed the city and county to speak with one voice regarding economic development, rather than a mayor and county executive making individual pitches to prospective businesses, Abramson said.

The core of merger philosophy realizes that every place is a "suburb of somewhere," Abramson said, comparing municipalities to a "patchwork quilt" of communities that can be compromised by crime, dilapidated homes and drug problems — regardless of whether they occur inside or outside city limits.

"As the corners of that patchwork quilt begin to fray,” Abramson said, “the entire quilt's at risk."

I think it's hilarious...with all the talk about violating rights, stop and frisk, Furgeson, etc...Now they want the police to do more to combat rising violent crime? Once the body cams get here, Police will be less aggressive when they should be more aggressive; and then won't cut breaks when breaks should be cut...Teenagers being caught with beer.

Well Operation Trust you have everything under control. We only had 1 murder last night instead of 3. So you can continue to sit around the water cooler a hq singing kum bah ya trying to figure where lunch will be and who's buying. Chief you run a good snow job, but what happens when this bleeds over into the east end and little joey gets his *** shot off by some thug over a joint and he is the son of some rich supporter who has given a shi& load of money to the mayors election and programs. That is when you will find sh!t rolls down hill. What a joke.HASOICR

Fischer said people who fail to shovel sidewalks could be cited. They are supposed to clear TARC stops for free or else get a ticket. Nevermind that compulsory labor aka slavery is unconstitutional or that police will not even be responding to noninjury accidents. Nevermind that the west end is experiencing a surge in murders. LMPD is to go cite the 200,000 homeowners who will be ignoring their sidewalks tomorrow.

City buildings will be open in a foot of snow. No snow emergency has been declared, since that would make at least 5 or 6 business owners mad and he can't take that kind of heat. People will be driving into each other trying to get to work or to make a court appearance. This city is run as professionally as an illegal alien's taco trailer, assuming the illegal alien never sold tacos before he got here.

Operation TRUST. LOL. How about, operation do your job.

Platoons short again

March 5th, 2015 @ 8:37AM (6 years ago)

Thank you Chief for leaving the street platoons short again by requiring people to be detailed to Operation No Trust. I'm sure the people stuck in the middle of the expressways last night during one of the heaviest snowfalls in recent history really appreciate it.

Hello, can we please get some 4X4 vehicles issued to patrol instead of specialty units. Obviously, patrol has a need for them.

Two more shot on Oak Street.

Operation "hug a thug" continues.

Obviously the entire Executive Command Staff needs to be overhauled. Leadership is much more than a title and making 120K a year. Citizens are expecting results, and the executive staff need to step up to the plate and get out of their offices. Initiating another task force is not the answer.
