First, this is a great program. It will help apprehend armed, dangerous criminals. Kudo's to Larry Duncan and all those involved.

Second, armed robberies of businesses are up over 100% from last year. And 2004 was a record year for armed robberies. Armed robberies and home invasions, which are worked by division detectives, are up over 150% from last year. Homicides are up. Burglaries are up, car break ins and car thefts are up. Metro Louisville is a much for dangerous place to live than the old City of Louisville or Jefferson County.

Chief Robert White's policies have been a faliure. If the Louisville Metro Police Department was a private sector company, it would be going out of business and White would be fired.

The dept sure can fill School resource and training slots and traffic Sgt . vacancies ASAP!!!

CACU has 3 Detective vacancies, and 1 Sgt Vacancy. (wonder why Sharber is retiring) So that leaves 16 Detectives working 1200 cases.....****Nothing against Homicide****, but they have, I believe 18 Detectives and they are working about 300 cases a year and only 70 of those are homicides. Like I said NOTHING AGAINST HOMICIDE!!!!!!!!!

They can sure keep a Sgt in the Chiefs office that only sends out e-mail on retirement parties, galls and the parking lot and garage "Police" around HQ. I think a Civillian can do that job! Nothing against the Sgt, I am sure she is a nice person and a good Sgt, but come on!

I hope they transfer off the CACU list before it expires in About 8 weeks!

I hope the community reads into this 'website' for what it is- confession that we, the police, can not do the job we need to do to protect the public.

Robberies, burglaries and home invasions, car jackings... the good citizens of Louisville are just victims in waiting! We as a department are extremely short of officers, and the chief still fills 'school resource officer' positions, DRO's and other nonsense positions before putting officers on the street where they are needed. Oh, yeah, if you are a victim, a detective (with unlimited overtime) will investigate your crime, in a few weeks. -Don't hold your breath waiting on a resolution though.

When officers on the platoons are riding a beat alone, and answering 911 hangups and domestics, we don't have any time to actually patrol, to deter crime.

-Look at EMS- they're short like LMPD of personnel, but their bosses realize the need is still there, and medics are working overtime shifts to cover the streets and serve the public. Wake up Bob, the city is being overrun by the bad guys. -Might be time to forgo your bonus and pay the street cops some overtime!!

On the "Average Joe" radio show last night, ol Joe had a good idea! He said quit spending all that money on posters and new web sites and use it for OT and pay Officers to watch these businesses! I like this guy.....

When will the Chief get it? Admit it Chief, you made a big, BIG mistake reducing the Metro Narcotic Unit and the Gang Squad. What kind of people do you think are commiting the robberies? Wake up!!

It's well documented that armed robbery rates go up as drug addiction rates go up. They're tied together. When you're addicted to drugs, you often find yourself in need of some quick cash and have little problem using violence or force to get it. Under Mayor Abramson and Chief White, Louisville has surrendered in the war on drugs and has disbanded the police units that went after the street gangs and narcotics dealers. This was done in reaction to some members of the minority community protesting whenever drug dealers forced police into a violent confrontation with a minority. For this administration, a few votes matter far more than saving any lives. Until the public shows the politicians that they're fed up with the crime and want something done to stop it, nothing is going to change.

I have a question about this, it is a good program, but how much OT was involved in this that could have been put to solving the crimes? At lease get some of it to the beat officers if the detectives are so busy with new cases.

There are a good many of us in the applicant pool right now, eager to find out if we make the cut or not ... the timetable has been pushed back again, along with the start sate for the January academy, the June academy by implication. It's a slippery slope, it seems, because new recruits that might ease the personnel crunch can't be processed expiditiously due to the personnel crunch; at least that's how it seems to me. Am I wrong? Also, in the same vein, why do they keep academies sized at 30 individuals when there is an acknowledged manpower deficit on the force? What would it hurt to run them at, say 40-45, as a contingency for an academy or two? True, more newbies aren't going to solve everything, but still ... here we all sit while the violent crime rate grows by leaps and bounds. Ho-hum. Tick Tock.
