Hello all Auxiliary Members Of The Service, and Auxiliary Coordinators, I know this is off topic about the NorEaster Storm and the recovery efforts of Hurricane Sandy but I would like to share with you a very important link. This link, vestforlife dot com, provides FREE ballistic vests for all Law Enforcement Officers within the United States who need a vest for personal use or for on duty patrol. In my opinion this is a very good opportunity for everyone in the NYPD to use because safety is important and everyone should have a vest to use. If I were a APO right now I would take advantage of this. I am not a advertiser, I am doing this to contribute to the CTTF Auxiliary Unit, The unit I have applied to. Saftey is important and should always be considered. Take care guys (and girls) and stay cautious and out of harm's way - Rafael Cruz

ATTENTION: According to weather sources, another storm is in route to our area. This storm is being considered as a NorEaster and will bring with it high winds, rain, and possibly snow. Trees are weak from Hurricane Sandy and many people are displaced from their homes. We must get ready for another hit. We would be in trouble with a rain storm right now. THIS IS A BIG DEAL. DO NOT TAKE THIS STORM LIGHTLY. FILL UP YOUR GAS TANKS!!! GET SUPPLIES. BE PREPARED TO LOSE POWER AGAIN. The storm looks like it will be here on Wednesday night going into Thursday morning. BE READY!!!

I thank all of you that have been helping NYC through this horrific event. I would also like to set up some ground rules in regards to working in any NYPD capacity. This means off duty and on duty. While you are assigned to the CTTF Auxiliary Unit, on and off, you are my responsibility, like it or not. If you decide to work along with another unit, you must get my permission first. If you want to leave the borough of Manhattan South, you must ask permission. I have to know. The desk has to know. A detail roster must be filled out before going into any area that has been hit hard. This goes for regulars as well. All about accountability. You may think that the rules do not make sense or you might completely disagree with them but, the rules are in place so that every single one of you are accounted for and every single one of you go home safely. I don't care what your background is. These are the rules that I must follow and they are the rules that you will follow, no questions asked. This Unit does not become a free for all when your coordinators aren't around. You do not make decisions on your own to go to a hot zone. That will never happen again. I am so proud of you because you all wanted to get down and dirty but at the same time, I had to listen to my Sgt and LT screaming today because procedure wasn't followed. Never again. Great work today and I'm sure that you made a huge difference out there. I'm glad that nobody got hurt today or yesterday. To make it absolutely clear, NO Member of this unit shall act in any capacity with the NYPD and involve themselves with the rescue, recovery, or relief efforts to Hurricane Sandy without permission of me, PO Green. That includes community affairs. They do not have the authority to override your chain of command. Again, I know that all of you mean well, just follow the procedure. We all have a job to do. Every job is important. Every job will help the relief efforts. That's guaranteed. If there is nothing to do, go to the armory on 26 and Lexington and make sure that the supply trucks get in safely and stop traffic as they unload the food, water, clothing and other supplies needed in the hard hit areas. Let's do this CTTF. Keep it up

A/Sgt. France: your words were very touching and on point. Thank you. My Long Beach hometown, in many areas, has people in need of shelter, food, water and everything the folks in Staten Island and the Rockaways need. One friend was the FDNY Captain in charge of NY Harbor after 9/11. He nearly got killed in the Twin Towers. Now he, his wife and daughters have no home and no cars. But he told me he and his family are thankful to be alive. We all have a lot to be thankful for.

I look forward to returning to New York and working tours to help New York recover and rebuild. While my Long Beach home is intact, the island is still without power, water and sewage. Our streets are a mess and countless homes were destroyed. I'll be back as soon as Long Beach has water and I can get gas for my car (now in Washington, D.C.). Good luck to all of you who are in NYC and able to make it to CTTF!

I'm sitting at a dead traffic light watching as the New York State and Nassau County Fire Marshals escort dozens of buses and equipment from Tennessee and it just hit me, this really happened to us. Us meaning NY. This is really going on. This is not a drill. This is for real. The shoe is on the other foot and we are the ones looking for the help. Wow. It's overwhelming to see the amount of damage. It's hard to see our own in pain. Everything is gone. I preach Motivation, Motivation, Motivation. Well, today is no different. In fact, we need Motivation more today than ever. It fuels our fire and we need to dig deeper than we knew we could to get through this tragedy. It has hit our area on so many levels. Let's stand tall CTTF. Let's lead the way to recovery. I don't care if we are assisting the flow of traffic because those rescue workers that are responding from all over will see you when they come over the bridges. You will be their first sight of the NYPD. They need to know that we are strong, so stand tall and proud. The people of New York that are victims will see you out there working hard. Yes, even directing traffic makes a difference. Everything makes a difference right now and all of you are capable of it. This the real deal and I am totally confident that the CTTF Auxiliary Unit will get the job done. Let's keep it up. God Bless every single one of you. You do this from the heart and it shows!!! True Heroes!!! Thank you for what you do and for teaching me a few things about heart!!!

There is still much to be done and many of our members have yet to show up and assist with the relief/recovery efforts. Today Tour begins at 1100 hrs also we turn the clock back an hour which means many got an extra hour of sleep. For those of you who have not come in yet at all, I hope you can come in today. Now if transportation/family issues or anything like held you back, I completely understand and hope for the best for you. Many of our members sacrificed to help others all week long. As this is why and how CTTF continues to set the standard!

A/SGT Siewart, I'll be in tomorrow. As everyone can see things are pretty bad around here. There are still a lot of people without power, heat, access to food and water, and huge lines for gas. This is what we all got into this for, to help out the city we love when it needs our help the most.

As you can see, I erased some posts. Listen up, there is a crisis going on. Keep your petty opinions to yourself!!! Keep your sights on the severe task at hand. You want to argue with each other? Do it somewhere else. The Marathon was a dumb idea and that's why they canceled it. The NYRR were completely out of line for asking that hotels kick people out so that the runners could stay. It's a fact, they did do that. As far as the million dollars goes, excellent offer. They don't have to offer any money but it doesn't cancel out them trying to have displaced people kicked out of a hotel. The damage is massive. 9/11? I don't want to hear any comments from those that weren't there. It was a horrible scene. Lots of heartache and heartbreak. You can't compare the 2. What I can tell you is that this scene is massive. It is widespread and it is effecting more people. Lives have been ripped apart. This is a horrible incident that will go down in history as one of our darkest moments. What all of you need to do is, shut your mouths and assist us or just shut your mouths all together. Get your hands and boots dirty and then you might be able to talk. Your opinions do not matter. The job needs to get done. Stop typing and start working. If you are not involved on this rescue, recovery, or relief effort, do not bother us with your opinions at all. Less talk, more action. FYI, I posted the statements on Foxsports.com. I can! I am directly involved in this. I have personal loss and I am working my ass off. Do not even start to give me any sort of opinions! The statements made were given a lot of thought and after speaking to cops and other rescue workers, I made my statements. Don't agree, then too damn bad. Get dirty and talk to me. That's all I have to say! CTTF, keep up the great work that those of you that are actually are showing up and doing. It's been a fantastic showing and overall an amazing job. You are making a world of difference for many. Thank you all.
