This "walk & talk" Idea sounds like it is going to be another talk session without any real solutions.lets get in meetings and cut taxes to property owners like Huber did,and Waynesville.They cut taxes and they are "booming". What does Trotwood do? raise tax in an effort to get money.This only drives businesses out.They will pay a resonable tax if they have police and fire protection..period. Otherwise the city is doomed to die just like Detroit and others who have followed this "tax and spend" agenda. Remember..I told you so!

I live in Townview and was totally unaware that I had to file a City of Trotwood Income Tax until I received a letter from CAC a collection agency they've contracted to help with collecting taxes. This agency went back to 2003 to collect taxes and my employer takes taxes out. However, the bill I received for owing back taxes to the city was $1900. Am I the only person who had no knowledge about this separate city tax!

Trotwood has turned into a little Detroit. I wish the best for officers on the street, but the city fathers and others that go along with the program need to go.How many supervisors do you need for 26 officers? How many officers are working a shift..3!! Cutting some majors might be in order,or captains. They could reduce the rank and make them sergeants again. This would save lots of money.

I think the chief should work the road twice a week and take a 25% pay cut along with a major. We will see if this happens> I don't think anyone in the city is going to take the cuts the PD has!!

Currently, the police department is the only department in the city that has lost over $1 million in sowrn positions, but yet the city wants more. A good, sound public safety department is the only way to secure the city and attract business's...oh yeah, the fire department needs to pay for their own fire house, not the PD.
The upper admin of the PD does not have a clue in managing and leading the department. They plan on covering the furlough days with OT, which will cost the city 50% more...where are the savings?!? It appears the city only needed the PD to take the cuts so the rest of the city would take them.
Now the city is sending the Chief to Harvard to better learn how to manage the department. Apparently that wasnt a pre-requisite of getting the Chief's job. But don't worry, it will only cost the same as a patrolman's salary for 3-4 months. I am sure he will be happy to take the training elsewhere after he bilks the city for the tab.

Apparently the city is still engaged in the old hiring practices.That is why (among other reasons)Dan Swafford left.He didn't stand a chance from what I heard.Some even said he wasn't qualified,but that was said because the ones that said it didn't want to get on the bad side of YOU KNOW WHO!!!LOL!!

I recently learned that O-PF is doing a 5yr look back at Trotwood and another department for a reason as to why such a high number of medical retirements.They are going to refuse some I heard.

I also learned that employees of the city are being sent to Columbus at an alarming rate if they speak out against the management inthe city.They are being denied work until they are deemed fit for duty.This is a tactic the city is using to keep employees quiet and go along with all the malfeasense going on.The department heads are behind this from what I been told.It needs to be investigated and criminal charges brought against those involved.

The police department suffers more losses than the fire department because of what they are.They are the "PO-PO". The PO-PO is not popular in Trotwood and the city council reflects this in their cuts and funding. The PD would be gone if they could legally do away with it.That is why MCSO will take over in about a year.

Some one should look into the relationship between the chief and the records clerk they just hired. Rumor is that they have had and still have an ongoing relationship but it is kept very quiet. It's not as quiet as they may think because everyone knows about it. I have also heard that the whole plan was to bring this person in and quickly advance her in rank to "weed" out anyone who is not in the circle. I feel sorry for the people that do not "fit in" to the circle of friends. If you are not in with the chief and his captain, you are doomed! Some former employees have found this out the hard way. A few of the current employees should speak with these people and possibly look into a lawsuit for discrimination. It's so sad!!

The situation is bad I agree.I hear that anyone who disagrees with the chief is sent to Columbus for a "fitness for duty evaluation". I also hear that police & fire is looking into the high number of retirees coming out of Trotwood.

Swafford left for Vandalia under this racist department.He had no chance of being chief.Now a Trotwood captan aid he didn't have the education.

Yes you re correct alot of officers have left. Most officers are leaving or trying to leave. A sergeant is going to Washington state in a city there. The command structure under Pope is so afriad go against him they are involving themselvs in over their heads. They are scared to death and will not do anything except what they are told! It goes for the union too! Thats the situation as I understand it.

I am surprised that nobody has filed a complaint with the new mayor.I think this has to be done according to the Attorney generals office before they will step in to investigate corruption.I heard someone had contacted them and they were told this by the Attorney general.

Anyway someone should get the ball rolling.I'm afraid however its too corrupt. Who knows who is involved or given special treatment not to rock the boat. I guess they get what they deserve.

there are supervisors in the department that are too busy "sucking up' to the chief in hopes of getting a shot at the chiefs job to do right by the officers. I don't know who is involved but there were a couple that would sell their soul to the devil.

Nobody in the dept is going to rock the boat for fear of losing their job. Trotwood now is a laughing stock in Montgomery co.

They say things like Why did they hire a chief that was fired by thee sheriff and Madison twp in the past?

People that live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones! Be careful who you judge because the people in Trotwood management are losing people faster than they can hire them and are breaking the rules their subordinates were told never to break.Their is a double standard when it comes to old Trotwood and the new.
Some people in the past were put inside even after threats against were made against others. Now, if you don't agree with the chief ...I hear you go to Columbus for a fitness for duty hearing!
As Rotwood turns...Rotwood yours to recover!!

As I heard a retired Trotwood officer say" I got tired of the thieves, accused rapist, and serial killers,and that was just the officers"!

I think Trotwood and Dayton could use a lesson from Kettering or some of the surrounding cities when it comes to running a city. Still waiting on the mall project.

Dayton Police is hiring for the fist time in years. The test has been changed to attract minorities.I hear its the easiest test in the state now.

Trotwood did the same years ago.Has it helped recruit minorities? I think you attract people like Tommy Swint when the standards are lowered.

Years from now the testing put in place will be like bussing was for schools . A dismal failure.

I heard that chief Pope and captain Wilson have let their homes to be forclosed.I also heard that Pope is not paying his school loans at Wright state.I also heard he wants Trotwood to pay for the rest of his education. Apparently he is looking out for himself in spite of all the money trouble and possible lay-offs by the city. I think he is planning for the day he is without a job in Trotwood..it is looming
Pope also drives around in a city provided vehicle on personal time, travels and uses a city credit card to pay for his gas. Yes his home did get foreclosed and he has a lengthy negative credit report because he doesn't beleive in paying his bills. Pope and his fellow officer buddies have been seen leaving from Buckhorn Tavern and Tumble Weed intoxicated in City of Trotwood provided vehicles on city time.

I received the same type of letter, dating back to 2003. They billed me for over $23,000. Even after I prove my employer took out taxes, according to the letter I will still owe over $7,000 in penalties and late fees. INSANE!!!!
