Concerned - 1st off shame on you for your post. If you have an issue it is best to address it to your supervisor and/or your coordinator directly never on a public forum. 2nd - by posting this in a manor as to hide behind an anonymous post lacks professionalism, team spirit and courage three traits we honor at CTTF. 3rd - PO Navarro and PO Green are two of the hardest working coordinators in this city. They stand next to us on almost every detail, post or personal function. You should NEVER doubt their commitments or integrity. The number of sacrifices they have personally made to the unit are immeasurable and should never be questioned. We are a family at CTTF and we expect every member to act accordingly. FINALLY - If you do not like the way we manage CTTF follow your chain of command to help make constructive improvements OR find another command because we do not want you!!!

Sorry I didn’t respond faster but I had to take care of my family obligations first. WHERE IS NAVARRO? Navarro is on a post next to his Auxiliary family during details. Yes I’m very much laid back and as P.O. GREEN stated I do have two kids a 2 year old and an11 month old. I barely have time to check my regular E mails, so sorry I don’t post every day. Maybe instead of posting so much take the time to come in and join us. I don’t appreciate the post due to the simple fact that I poured my heart and soul into this unit. I assure you I don’t have a lack of interest in the unit. I started this unit out of a closet and a desk from the garbage and I’m proud of what we have become. Your discouragement is not my fault. Get motivated and start to participate. If you have criticism about my command style, tell me face to face.

I was going to let P.O. Navarro address that post first hand but I will address it my way. Every person has their way of doing things, different personality traits, leadership styles, etc. My way is a very much in your face, aggressive, confident and sometimes arrogant style. ALPHA-MALE as some put it. It works for me. I have always been involved in competetive sports and a member of many teams. My background is a lot different than P.O. Navarro's. He is much more laid back and handles things differently than me. He has two young kids at home and that's where is priorities are at the moment, as they should be. He may want to act tough and arrogant at times to keep up with the attitude that surrounds him but he just isn't that way. Comparing him to me is not fair. We are two different people with two very different attitudes. Doesn't make any one of us good or bad, or any less of a supervisor. I don't appreciate it, P.O. Navarro doesn't appreciate, and I'm sure other onlookers don't appreciate it. THIS IS A TEAM!!! THIS IS A FAMILY!!! I DON'T CARE IF YOUR INTENTIONS ARE GOOD. THERE ARE CERTAIN WAYS OF HANDLING YOUR BUSINESS. THIS IS NOT THE WAY. I am asking the rest of the unit to maintain your Military Bearing and ignore such negativity. We are better than this. I am leaving the post up so that P.O. Navarro can address it later. KEEP IT POSITIVE TROOPS. WE ARE THE CTTF! WE SET THE STANDARD!! HOORAH

To Concerned, PO Green posted the below message prior to your rant:Dependability - Get the job done no matter what the obstacles are. Never make excuses for yourself, stay on the job until its done, know what needs to be done and where your duty lies....Nuff Said!!

P.O. GREEN   THIS WEEKEND
09-21-2012 9:04:50 AM EST

I will not be in this weekend. I have to report to my Coast Guard Station. P.O. Navarro is working both days. Tomorrow, he will be working the 5 ave Mile detail. It is an early one but if anyone would like to work it, it is an awesome detail. Even if you an A/Sgt would like to put a detail together for it at 1000, that would work. Let Navarro know. Sunday, the city is hosting the Muslim Parade on Madison Ave. Always interesting towards the end. I believe that A/Sgt. France is working that detail. Please let us know France. We do not want another weekend blunder like last week. COMMUNICATE TROOPS!!! THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN COMING IN, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. THOSE THAT HAVE NOT BEEN AROUND, I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY TO YOU. OH YES I DO, BRING IN YOUR SHIELDS AND ID'S, YOU DON'T DESERVE THEM!

I plan on coming in Tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. ETA 2-3. On a different note, I'm sorry to hear about the difficult times of some of our members; you are in my thoughts. Also just mentioning, I very much admire the recent post of A/Sgr De Dier, and PO Green's post on constructive criticism.

Today's Leadership Trait Lesson is on Decisiveness. Decisiveness - Get all the facts and make up your mind when you've weighed them. Say what you mean and mean what you say. I was guilty of not getting all the facts earlier this week and blew up on a few A/Sgt's. It happens. I was wrong. I was looking out for other members but in doing so, I called out those A/Sgt's not realizing that there was indeed a reason for what had happened. In order to get all the info regarding any incident, there must be communication. The lines of communication within this unit, especially to me are wide open. I do not hide from anyone. 3 phones, 2 e-mails, message board, etc. I need all the facts in order to lead properly and make the proper decisions for the members of this unit. I apologize to A/Sgt's France and Siewart for my actions earlier this week. The two of you have been in this program for years and you have done many great things. I was wrong. Keep up the great work.

PO Green   Keep our members in your prayers
09-20-2012 1:09:23 AM EST
In the past few days several members have had to deal with unfortunate family issues. I would like you all to keep them in your prayers and give them the support that they may need to push forward. When a teammate is down, we pick them up. When a soldier falls, we pick them up and never leave them behind. The following members need us now. P.O. Navarro, A/Sgt Siewart, A/PO Cyrus D-Something, and A/PO Karen Thomas. All of these members are strong willed people but they need this team to stand beside them and support them as they deal with the unfortunate curve ball that life sometimes throws at us. We are the CTTF, We are a team, We are a family!!!!! Fidelis Ad Mortem!

WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY DESCRIBES DEDICATION AS :: self-sacrificing devotion!!! AND LAST NIGHT A/SGT'S DEDIER AND FRANCE WITH MYSELF AND APO'S YAMUNA (AKA TIGER), RYAN AND KAREN THOMAS (NO RELATION LOL), WAS AN AMAZING EXAMPLE OF DEDICATION. WE STOOD ON SEVERAL CORNERS IN MONSOON TYPE RAIN, SHUTTING DOWN 23RD STREET FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO MOVE. WE NOT ONLY EARNED THE RESPECT AND GRATITUDE FROM MANY OF THE COPS THERE FROM OUR COMMAND, BUT MANY COPS FROM OTHER COMMANDS WHO ARE THERE JUST FOR THE DETAIL WERE LIKE HOLY CRAP. AUXILIARY ARE HERE AND THEY ARE LOCKING DOWN STREETS. MARTY AND JOE RECEIVED A LOT OF PRAISE ON OUR BEHALF LAST NIGHT!!!! THE NEXT 10 DAYS IS THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

P.O. GREEN   TUNNEL TO TOWERS RUN
09-19-2012 10:06:53 AM EST

TODAY'S LEADERSHIP TRAIT LESSON IS ABOUT COURAGE. Courage - There are two kinds of courage, physical and moral. Fix your mind on your mission. A poor decision is better than a half-hearted attempt. Know whats right and stand up for it. Firefighter Stephen Siller showed a tremendous amount of COURAGE by gearing up, running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, reaching the Towers after they were attacked and assisting his fellow rescue workers. He lost his life saving others. We will be working the Tunnel to Towers detail, which is in his honor. I hope that we get a very large crew in on 9/30 at 0700, not only to work it but to pay tribute to Stephen Siller and all the people that share his attitude of helping others. That includes the members of this unit. Every single one of you, whether in good standing or not, have shown a special characteristic in you. You weren't forced to join this department, you volunteered to make a difference. That is honorable!!! BE THERE 9/30/12 AT 0700hrs. FIDELIS AD MORTEM

P.O. GREEN   MANDATORY MEETING!
09-19-2012 8:30:03 AM EST

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 3, 2012 AT 1930 HOURS. This is a mandatory, must show, all hands, meeting. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!! If you fail to show for this meeting, you will have to hand in your shield and ID. I have announced this meeting early, giving all of you time to make plans with school, work, family, scheduling conflicts. One of this units biggest issues is that the same people always show up. The same people carry the load for the rest of you. This is not fair and it must be addressed. YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS MEETING!!! ALL OF YOU!

P.O. GREEN   AWESOME JOB

With manpower low, the CTTF was struggling to cover crucial areas of the Presidential Detail last night. That is when they called upon THE A-TEAM!!!! Yes, after responding to a very nasty motor vehicle accident yesterday and shutting 23rd st down in minutes (saving the day), the CTTF Auxiliary Unit then rushed over to a "building collapse", which turned out to be a perimeter fence collapse on a construction site on 33 and Madison. One screw through my boot and into my foot later, The CTTF Auxiliary Unit enjoyed a nice family dinner at Boston Market. After meal, it was all business, shutting down main streets for the President and providing pedestrian control enabling swift movements of the Presidential Motorcade. It seemed like the CTTF Auxiliary Radio Show at certain points last night. JUST A WONDERFUL JOB ALL TOGETHER. After the detail, one cop named this unit, "THE A-TEAM." I absolutely agree!!!!
