This morning (two days before Christmas) around 7:30am 911 received a call, that the traffic light at Broad and Shotwell was out. They called in city workers to fix it, BUT not a single uniform was dispatched. At about 10:30 the 911 operator begged someone from the PD to go up there to direct traffic their boards were lit up from the calls of irate citizens.
Where is the leadership here? Both Funderburke or Landrum would have jumped into the fray and someone would have been directing traffic.
If you listen to the scanner, you can tell something is badly amiss. Is Porky II, the sequel, not doing his job?

why should an officer have to go direct trafic. I pass through the light after the call was dispatch and it was flashing yellow on one side and red on the other side. Yellow means slow down and look and red means stop, look, if nothing is coming then go. what is so dangerous about that. O, I know. you would come up and not know what to do and run all over me. I understand now. mabe people that don't know how to use comon sence would plaw on through. come on people they have recks at intersection every day when the lights work fine I like how this person has turn a 911 call into a pile of B/S and use it to try and slander another person with a coment. I just hope you are not one of the fools that is runing the town or county. things are not always like what you hear. yes the light was in trouble mode. but it was working in a protected mode that made it safe. Please if you do not know how to obey flashing lights, stop sign, and yeild sign. keep your butt from behind the stering wheel. and don't spred rumors about what you think you here on a scaner. I think that every time someone make a 911 call and it turns out to be some vandictive B/S that 911 should get to fine your phone for a false call.

You sound like a cop, looking for another way to fine people.
Or should I say take more money?

And you , my under-educated and over-opinionated friend, should take a few remedial English lessons.:0)
You may have had a easy time getting through the intersection, but by 10:30 there was a traffic jam. Not one of the city employees paid for traffic control was willing to direct traffic. If they are understaffed, why do they not hire more officers? Lack of funds, you say? Well, let some of the lazy city employees go that are sleeping the mornings away around the boat basin.
I certainly hope you are not a BPS officer. How could you write a report with your catastrophic lack of grammar and and spelling?
You write:
trafic should be traffic; mabe is maybe; comon sence should be common sense; plaw I guess you mean plough; recks is actually spelled wrecks; coment is comment; runing is running; yeild is spelled yield; stering is spelled steering; spred is spread; scaner is scanner; vandictive is spelled vindictive.
I do believe you should be fined for criminal abuse of the English language.

That is what Im talking about. you here what you want to here you think I sound like a cop. No log way from being a cop. but right is right, and stupid is wrong. why should alot of ouy tax money have to go to protecting people from stupid s**t. you would not want me to be a cop because after I had to come to someone house the third time for the same call. like a demestic call or he/she want get up and go to school you would start paying for the gas and time that it takes for an officer to have to keep going. you are one of the ones that assum what you want, I might sound like a cop but lets see if I can make it plainer to you I am tired of my hard earn money being spent on peoples B/S. people could do better if they would and if they had to pay it out of their buget then they would.I could say that you sound like one that is bleeding the system but it don't mean it's so does it.

The officers want more help. The city is not hiring currently and all shifts are short. The new chief has not been active in office long enough to place new people in postions. It is sad but the officers are working under less than favorable conditions. Hopefully, they will fix this soon.

nothing new here. they have always had problems with officers leaving after getting certified to work in more favorable environments. And why wouldn't they be hiring if they are short on people? Lack of funds? I mean come on spending $4 million on a renovation and not staffing one of the most important and critical depts. in the entire organazation?

Chief Miller is going to do the hiring. He wants to see where the holes are that needs to be filled. It is madness but the Chief is there to fill the holes in each shift and sort it out. Hobby stopped all hiring- interoffice movements till Chief can address it and build the Department the way he wants it.

They are short 10 officers from full staffing level. It was right before Christmas, probably some people who could fix it quickly were off. Public Works has had a role in resetting the lights in the past, not sure how the new lights are reset.

In a perfect world, yeah there should have been an officer. But it's not like it was the light at Scott and Shotwell, where you really would have a wreck. Most people can figure out what to do when the light is flashing red.(It's just like a stop sign.)
