The quiet war between the Dekalb PD, their own command and the county commissioners is heating up again. Nothing official, but Dekalb Officers Speak is calling for another "ticket strike":
Even though we ended the ticket furlough, the commissioners followed through with their threats anyway. For ending the ticket furlough, what did we receive in return? 5 precinct reduction in promotional pay, increase in pension contribution of 66 percent, reduction in vacation time, reduction of vacation roll over to sick time, thus increasing the years of serve before retirement. And now they reduced 10-hour employees (us) holiday time. We now are only paid 8 of the 10 hours. We will be forced to take vacation or comp time to make the difference...Time to hit them where it hurts! Let the share in our misery. The only way we can fight back is through a ticket strike. They heard us loud and clear last time, time for them to hear from us again....Call it what it is, a ticket strike....and now!Speed at your own risk. However, if you normally travel between Spaghetti Junction and I-20, that's already par for the course.
