Clarification
03-05-2012 4:37:39 PM EST

Looks like I need to again step in and provide clarity to the situation. The concern here is not the attendance number in and of itself, but the number of people that confirmed attending and just didn't show. There's an office phone, office answering machine, Marty's cell phone to call or text, the message board to post on, the CTTF e-mail address, Marty's department e-mail address, and any of the supervisors. We all have other jobs and personal lives, so not everyone can always attend, but if you say you are going to be there and don't let us know when your plans change that makes you a grade A asshole! How many different ways do you need to communicate with the unit? Show some common courtesy to PO Green and PO Navarro for the effort they put into this unit and this program. If you didn't let us know you weren't going to attend yesterday, you should truly be ashamed of yourself.

((DISGRACEFUL)) I would like to start by thanking the same few active members that seem to show up for all the details. Thanks for carrying the dead weight of those members who just want to look cool and tell their friends that they work for the NYPD. Retention of shields and ID’s will start today. I can’t believe that we got the same number of APO’s as last year especially after we posted the importance of this particular detail. I wonder if you all really understand what the meaning of this detail was. Again we are a family when a family member dies YOU PAY YOUR RESPECTS it’s a given. I am so disappointed. If you want to play cop this is not the place this is the real world GET IN THE GAME or get left behind. Ladies and gentlemen in case you haven’t noticed its open season for cops. Four cops shot in the last three months with one fatality. NOT GOOD. Last I looked you guys are wearing the same uniform as us. So if you have that nonchalant attitude just quit before you get someone killed. If you give your word we as coordinators depend on it. We secured vehicles for said detail just to hand the keys back to the desk officer. Do you understand how bad it looks if we tell APS our number and we don’t even show up with half that number. We look like liars that they can’t depend on. Don’t get me wrong we are still elite, and we are the best Auxiliary unit in the city but Green and I were really let down. This detail was for you. It honors Auxiliaries. How often does APS honor Auxiliaries?

I appreciate all of the support. I am still very angry and insulted. All of the active members of this unit should be angry. It was an insult to this uniform, this unit, and the brotherhood of law enforcement officers. We joke around a lot and have a good time, yet we are very serious when we need to be. I want the atmoshere of this unit to be as close to the real atmosphere upstairs. I want you all to feel as equals and I want you all to get as much training as possible while staying safe. I think that my kindness has been perceived as weakness by some. For that reason, things are going to become more military like. It is going to get strict but fair. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!!!! I am going to be entering officer training with the United States Coast Guard very soon. I do not know if I will stay with this unit after I get back. WANT ME TO STAY? DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!! DON'T LIKE ME? SCREW YOU AND THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!! For now, I will continue to assist Navarro and run this unit. It will continue to move forward!! I have said it before, This train will not be derailed!!!! Those of you insulted by me or our ACTIVE MEMBERS........KISS THE BACKSIDE OF OUR HORSE PATCHES!!!!!!!!!! WE START AGAIN TODAY! GET YOUR ASSES IN!!! FIDELIS AD MORTEM!!!!!!!!!

I am supposed to be in detail yesterday no matter what. I was 99.99% sure I will be attending eventhough I know I have to work the night before. But I couldn't make it. I don't know what to say.I am really speechless right now. I will never be that dare to disappoint or disrespect you. If I knew you will be disappointed like that for not being in the detail, I swear to god I wouldn't sleep after working whole night. So I could attend on the detail. I don't know what to do to make it up. I am really humble. When you said about leaving it's really broke my heart apart. No...... Green....No. Please don't say that. Belive it or not while I am writing this water driping in my eyes. We are not motivated or elite without you. We need you Green. CTTF need you. One day I told you I am here not to maintain minimum hours, I will try to put as much as I can remember?That's because I really care about you and this unit. I will make it up next time I promise. I beg you PLEASE DON'T LEAVE............

Today at the interfaith memorial we had 18 members. Last year we only had 44 members and we had 18 show up last year. This year we only had 18 and we not have 70 active members. We are missing those who have been deployed like APO Su, APO Sheridan and APO Wilson. I know they would have been here today. There are 3 major events that Queens looks for our attendance at. They are the Interfaith, the Marathon and New Years!!!!! However our Unit CTTF and our CO's and Chiefs Captain Merrit, DI Hanover, Chief Cassidy and Chief Tuller, Truly appreciate our assistance everyday! At every Detail!!! Because this is what this unit does! There are about 10 of you who have Zero Hours for more than 2 months. You will be dropped and we expect your shields. We are now entering our busy season. For those of you who are active, we greatly appreciate your continued dedication to the unit! Today we were truly the best unit out there. We are the only unit with 2 coordinators and we are also the only unit to do the most events in the City!!!! It is what we do!!! Next Saturday March 10th I have reserved some time on a paintball field!!! Who is in???? I'll put the full details out shortly.

First of all I would like to say thank you P.O Green and P.O Navarro for believing in me and choosing me out of many great A/PO as the member of the month of February.  For me this is an honor and it means A LOT to me because in such a short period I was able to accomplish this HUGE award.  I been able to learn a lot with you guys and now I feel more comfortable as I go out there.  Second of all I want to send apologies to you Green and Navarro and the family of those auxiliary who were killed. I would had gave anything to be able to attend the ceremony and show my respect to the family, coordinators and everyone else. You give your EVERYTHING to this program, keep us motivated everyday and you come in and never asked for anything in return: just to do a few hours each week. I come in on my free time, days I could be working or at home but instead I choose to come in (AND I DON'T REGRET IT) just to pay you back the RESPECT that you give us; to do my job as an A/PO because I signed up for this and I agreed to all the requirements of this program and simply because I feel it is an HONOR to wear this uniform. Most of the times I come in 9 or 10 hours per day and if I could do more trust me I would just to show YOU my RESPECT and how much I CARE about this program. Finally, I would like to say that there are many great A/PO here who really care about this program and wouldn't want you to transfer or leave and I'm one of them and if you decide to transfer or leave I would be doing the same because this wouldn't be close to what this unit is today, hopefully you would reconsider that, we love you here Green and we can't lose you. Whoever disrespected P.O Green, P.O Navarro and everyone else you guys are really messed up.

Those who showed up today showed up in style, class, and were stared at by the other commands. I was asked what the patch meant, which points out that we're THE unit that is talked about. Those that didn't, you missed out. It was a humbling ceremony that honors our fallen officers. God forbid, but that could be any one of us. We put our lives on the line, and to know that it may not be honored by our BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN BLUE sucks. It is our responsibility to remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. If you had a valid reason to not show up, that's cool. If you had work or prior plans that you couldn't get out of, that's cool. If something unexpected occurred, that's cool. If you just didn't care, that's NOT cool. And for those who fall in this last category, y'all are messed up.

Citywide Traffic Task FORCE???
03-04-2012 10:05:30 PM EST
This unit is supposedly the "elite" unit. The trend setter. The admired. The "one with the horse patch." The one that's getting attention from the brass. This unit is the Citywide Traffic Task Force. But the word "FORCE" is obviously used very loosely, because today, there was no show of FORCE in numbers from our command. I feel that we need to remember the other units with the coordinators that don't CARE. The coordinators that make the program an unbearable environment. The coordinators that end up losing their members to "ACTIVE" units like ours. Recently, we had two transfers from a very nearby command, and we take for granted that we have two very dedicated coordinators. ON THEIR DAYS OFF, such as today they come in. If you were at today's memorial, you would've seen other units WITHOUT their coordinators. And that's okay, if they couldn't make it, but you have to give credit when people like PO Green and PO Navarro go the extra mile. GIVE CREDIT WHERE IT IS DUE. GIVE RESPECT WHERE IT IS DUE. Green and Navarro ALSO have personal lives, WIVES, KIDS, BILLS TO PAY. But they chose to spend their Sunday honoring the fallen AUXILIARY POLICE MEMBERS. You complain that we don't have enough cars? How do you expect APS to take that complaint seriously if they only see 15 people show up for a ceremony that honors us? This wasn't a detail that we were "working" The regular cops were "working" it. We were being honored. If you said you would come, and you CHOSE TO NOT COME, then you really screwed up. When your name is on a list of people expected to show up, it means that additional vans are borrowed, it means paperwork, it means high expectations, and a lot more. If you don't want to contribute, then don't, but stop wasting the time of our coordinators, our supervisors and all the Auxiliary COPS, and just stop coming altogether. This is a volunteer program, and there is no paycheck, but it is an honor to serve the city. The program, the department, and the city have expectations of this JOB. Yes, it is a job--a part-time job. Voluntary, yes, but still a job. We go out there, take necessary precautions, have fun, but we serve a vital function. And if you don't care to do it, then you don't deserve to carry around a shield and ID. You complain that you don't get respect? That some of the regulars (many from the old school) don't appreciate or respect auxiliary COPS? That your efforts go unnoticed? GUESS WHAT?--YOU GOTTA EARN RESPECT. "The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear." - Socrates You want to appear ELITE? BE FREAKING ELITE. I have news for you folks. Strength doesn't always exist in numbers. Quality outweighs quantity, and you don't make the cut. Stop. Wasting. Our. Time.

As a recent transfer to CTTF, I've never been more impressed and motivated by Officers Green and Navarro in my six years as an APO. My only regret is that I did 't transfer a year ago when I first met them. I attended today's Memorial Service and was asked by several APOs about CTTF and the unit's role. I may even have started one more APO transfer to CTTF today. There is something very special about Auxiliary CTTF and the two fantastic coordinators who run it. For us, failure is not an option. I look forward to many more unit and citywide details with both Officers Green and Navarro leading us at the front. Let's all move forward, together, one step at time time. And never fall back.

For those that committed to coming in for the memorial and could not make it, you owe PO Green and PO Navarro better than a sorry. These guys put themselves out there on our behalf, far more than a coordinator has to and well above what I have seen from others in the past. I think some members of the unit need to remember that. Many of us know it and are HUGELY APPRECIATIVE OF THEM!!!! This is a volunteer program in that you are donating your time, but make no mistake, when you accept that shield and ID, and you take that uniform, you have made a commitment to be contributor on this team. We all have our lives, but we have chosen to involve ourselves in this program, and this program expects you to be there, not just when its convenient. Parade season is coming, its time to put up or shut up.
