I don't normally post, but PO Green and I have been discussing a lot of things recently, and one topic that we've hit on quite a bit is leadership. Many of you know I am a Marine. The following is a list of leadership traits the Marine Corps espouses and I think they really apply here in the NYPD. I'm sorry this is a long post but I think it is important for everyone to take to heart. 1. Integrity - when you give your word keep it, people depend on you. 2. Knowledge - know your job and be able to pass it on to others. If you don't know the answer, admit it, learn from those around you. 3. 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. 4. Decisiveness - Get all the facts and make up your mind when you've weighed them. Say what you mean and mean what you say. 5. 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. 6. Initiative - Think ahead. If you see something that needs to be done, don't wait to be told to do it. 7. Tact - The right thing at the right time, consideration for others, courtesy. A tactful leader is fair, firm, and friendly. 8. Justice - Give every one of your subordinates a chance to prove themselves. Help those that fall short of your standards. 9. Enthusiasm - The more you know about something, the greater your interest and enthusiasm. Show it. Others will follow your lead. 10. Bearing - This is how you present yourself, uniform pressed and looking good. It's also how you conduct yourself. Don't ever show your concern over a situation even if you feel it. Speak plainly and simply. If you lose control of your tone you lose control of the situation. 11. Endurance - Never think about quitting, every leader must have endurance beyond that of his subordinates. You don't have to train to be miserable but you do have to train to end misery. 12. Unselfishness - Get the best you can for your subordinates all the time before you get it for yourself. Share the hardships and privileges. Give credit where credit is due. 13. Loyalty - Back your subordinates when they're right, correct them when they're wrong, you're being loyal either way. Never criticize your unit, seniors, or fellow officers in the presence of subordinates and make sure they don't do it either. 14. Judgement - This comes with experience. It is simply weighing all the facts in any situation and applying the other 13 traits, then make the best decision you can.

FBI Warns of Violence in America Over Anti-Islamic Movie   cttfteambuilding@gmail.com
09-14-2012 9:13:18 AM EST

The Joint Intelligence Bulletin issued by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security said "the risk of violence could increase both at home and abroad as the film continues to gain attention. First responders should remain aware of the potential for spontaneous large crowds and protests that could overwhelm resources and should be vigilant for possible efforts to encourage peaceful protesters to commit acts of violence," the warning said.

Intel shows something more. Why am I posting this? Watch the news! Libya, Syria, Egypt. Bad things going on. Attacks on US Embassy's are occuring. WE NEED TO BE ALERT. THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMPLY BEGINS THIS WEEKEND. KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES!!! THE PRESIDENT IS IN ON TUESDAY, OCCUPY WALL STREET IS HEATING UP. IT IS GETTING NUTS.

LISTEN UP: I have been hearing rumblings that people are bored when they show up for patrol. Let me ask you a few questions. WHY? WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO DO? DO YOU WANT TO GET MORE INVOLVED? REALLY GET DOWN AND DIRTY? That is good, but the thing about law enforcement is that 90% of it is community service, answering a million questions and giving the civilians a sense of security. THAT'S RIGHT 90%. IF YOU WERE THINKING THAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT CHASING DOWN THE BAD GUYS AND GETTING INTO SHOOTINGS AND STUFF LIKE THAT, WELL, NOT ALL THE TIME. IT IS ALL A POSSIBILITY, THAT'S WHY WE ARE ALWAYS READY. THIS IS POLICE WORK. IS IT BORING? YES, AT TIMES IT IS, BUT THIS IS THE JOB! DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO TELL YOU. IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BE MORE INVOLVED, DO MORE HOURS!!! THE MORE HOURS, THE MORE LIKELY YOU WILL BE INVOLVED. MAKES SENSE. Moving forward, Occupy Wall Street is back. This weekend is loaded with work. OWS, German-American Parade 1000 and Ships on Saturday. OWS,Mexican Parade, African Parade, and Ships on Sunday. We need help. You are volunteers. You can decide what you want to do. Bored, Make a decision. I am laying out a bunch of details. I constantly try to get all of you involved. The choice is yours. Want to be active, then be active. Want to do the minimum? Expect to see the minimum.

P.O. GREEN   2012 TUNNEL TO TOWERS RUN
09-12-2012 10:04:34 AM EST

NEXT BIG DETAIL: On September 11th, firefighter Stephen Siller had just gotten off the late shift at Squad 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn. He was on his way to play golf with his brothers on that bright clear day when his scanner told of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. When he heard the news, he called his wife Sally to tell her he would be late because he had to help those in need. He returned to Squad 1 to get his gear, then took his final heroic steps to the World Trade Center. When Stephen drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, it was already closed to traffic . With sixty pounds of gear strapped to his back, he ran through the Tunnel, hoping to meet up with his own company, Squad 1. He never returned, passing away during his rescue efforts. TROOPS, THIS YEAR I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AT LEAST 20 OFFICERS FROM THE CTTF AUXILIARY UNIT TO STAND TALL AND PROUD FOR THIS DETAIL. THIS DETAIL IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE 9/11 ATTACKS AND IT BRINGS OUT A LARGE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THE RESCUE EFFORTS OF 9/11 AND OUR LOST. THE DETAIL IS EARLY BUT WORTH IT. IT WILL BEGIN AT 0700 SHARP AND IT WILL END EARLY IF YOU HAVE TO GO. MANY OF US STICK AROUND AND WORK THE BBQ THAT USUALLY HAS A CONCERT ATTACHED TO IT WITH A BIG NAMED COUNTRY STAR OR GROUP. THE ENERGY AMONGST THE RUNNERS AND SUPPORTERS IS JUST AMAZING! STEPHEN SILLER'S FATHER AND FAMILY MAKE SURE THAT THEY LITERALLY SHAKE EVERY PERSONS HAND THAT IS WORKING. IT'S JUST AMAZING. GOOGLE STEPHEN SILLER AND YOU WILL READ HIS STORY THAT IS JUST AMAZING AND SHOWS THE AMOUNT OF HEART THAT MANY OF US HAVE. GOD BLESS HIM! 9/30/12 0700 AT CTTF! SEE YOU THEN!

P.O. GREEN   THIS IS A TEAM!
09-12-2012 9:31:27 AM EST

A team comprises a group of people or animals linked in a common purpose. Teams are especially appropriate for conducting tasks that are high in complexity and have many interdependent subtasks. A group in itself does not necessarily constitute a team. Teams normally have members with complementary skills and generate synergy through a coordinated effort which allows each member to maximize his/her strengths and minimize his/her weaknesses. Team members need to learn how to help one another, help other team members realize their true potential, and create an environment that allows everyone to go beyond their limitations
