Retrain GCSD "Security" Car Driver


It was about 2:55PM today when you pulled out of the Odyssey School Driveway & turned East onto Maiden Ln.

Your turn landed you on top of the DOUBLE YELLOW LINES, which you straddled as you headed towards Mt. Read Blvd.

Without signaling your lane change, you abruptly pulled into the left turn lane.

When the light turned red, you decided to stop in the middle of the crosswalk area.

At the green light, you took off headed north, again without using your turn signals.

WTH did you learn how to drive??

OOOH that was a retired WINKIE playing cop wanna be yet again? Car is only supposed to be driven by retired PD... Not Aux! That's how GCSD pads the cops retirements at 15 to 20 per hour as opposed to 10 per hr for reular security. Isd it still parked on 490 near 390 pretending to run radar, or in local womens driveways for bootie calls? Let's start a where's GCSD car today blog...and evferyone can pinpoint it with photos, time, and location.

8:44. You have no idea what your talking about. Go back to sleep and enjoy another fantasy dream. What a joke!

To 5:03AM ~~ Don't look now but "the joke" is likely on US ... again! The taxpayers always get reamed in Greece.

The only joke is contained in the original comment. A total fabrication of the truth. I would challenge this person to tell us about the district policy that states that only a retired cop can drive that car? While it is true, unless he retired,
Dave Staub, a retired deputy sheriff drove that car exclusively since they bought a used vehicle for roving security purposes several years ago.,This guy worked in security for more tha ten years as a way of supplementing his income, Where did you get the idea that retired cops can't work security for that purpose. The job pays about ten bucks to start, with yearly increases commenserate with length of service. Would it surprise you to know that the district has hired retired Kodak workers in this capacity. So please tell me, what is the difference between the two , Kodakers and cops, for these available position. I'd really like to see your take on this, please!

Scats these are budgeted positions. What difference does it make who the district hires for these low paying jobs,As for cops padding their retirement income by taking these positions, what on earth is wrong with that. They are restricted as to what their maximum yearly additional income is and if they exceed that amount, their yearly pension is reduced by the excess amount over the maximum allowable under the retirement law, I fail to see how t he taxpayers " get reamed" as you put it by filling these needed , budgeted positions with capable individuals . No joke here!!

To 1:24PM ~~ You failed to tell us WHO you are directing your questions to. You failed to tell us WHAT is a "fabrication" as well.

I suspect the person who commented at 5:03AM might have confused the SRO's with the kiddie cops who drive the make believe batmobile.

To 2:40PM ~~ You should check out Ch. 10's "NY Exposed" series for some valuable insight.

To 5:03 from 8:44
Documented, videoed by PD and neighbors, reported to District - no action taken!
To 1:24 from 8:44
Refer NY exposed to E. Kaak - and now follow, video, document who is in the car for proof! Like I asked - Where's Dildo?
Currently retired PD only, with the exception of a winkie and one close friend of a senior who appears to being groomed - near future hire? I'll post location when it happens!
To 2:40
The difference is that the job pays low wages to anyone not a prior employee of law enforcement while offering a 3 to 5 dollar bump because of law enforcement prior employment - even turn keys for the jails qualify without taking the civil service exam according to MCSC website! This all adds up to fewer people for more cost and isn't security about presence... If so then it's an economies of scale issue!
Prior law enforcement persons have to curtail their hours on the job for security as they approach the money limit allowed - that puts the schools, students, and staff at risk. Then it becomes a comp time fiasco that the district can't budget for!
I think NY exposed would love an interview and overview report.

Based on the feedback here, I think I hit a nerve with some PD retirees who are screwing the tax payers! Perhaps even a once Top Cop somewhere ?

If the shoe fits wear it. All one need do is take time to read previous comments and it will abundantly clear WHO I am referring to in my comment posted at 1:24

Scats it would seem to me that you have a problem with any retired public employee working full or part time jobs, especially Greece Cops and teachers. But as 1:24 noted, apparently it's OK with you if Kodak or other private sector retirees with pensions do likewise. I wonder why that is? Sounds like a personal bias to me. So sad!!!

SCATS said...

To 6:22PM ~~ Call Bret Davidson.

To 6:31PM ~~ I don't wear shoes ... phew!

To 6:41PM ~~ You do know what they about ASSumptions, right??

What's wrong with hiring retired cops as security. Seems to me they are better equipped to deal with the students than some of the senior citizens they have hired on the past. What is the difference who is driving the car, as long as they are a employee. I do not believe there is dome hidden rule that only a retired cop can drive the vehicle.

SCATS said...

To 10:24PM ~~ The original topic was about HOW THE CAR WAS DRIVEN.

Comments containing VULGARITIES are NOT posted.

I really wonder WHAT is wrong with some of you.

6:22 allow me to repeat what I said earlier. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Big time
All security guard s are covered under AGCEPT contract. As such the pay scale is fixed and uniform with no exceptions for former retired cops.p
Also I doubt that you even know what the maximum allowable amount that the NYS Police and Fire Pension system allows. Digest this one if you will. After attaining the required age limit his or her earnings are no longer limited and are unlimited. In either case it's none if your business as it has no bearing on pension costs attached to his yearly allowance and you as a supporter if his pension.
In the case of Knaack, you might be interested in knowing initially he was granted a waiver from the System which was later revoked thus causing his reduction in hours. At the time, he was making 80K. In my opinion given the job he did or better said didn't do ,was grossly over paid . On that we might agree
I have no idea what Chatterton is making but what ever it is he i s definitely limited by law.
As was stated earlier, any amount over the limit is deducted from his yearly pension.
I will go you one better. It is my opinion we do not need the title of Director of Security. All the district need do is designate an existing employee as officer in charge, pay him a modest stipends and everybody is happy and the job still gets done.

Chatterton is useless and overpaid. This was strictly a political appointment by BABS and the board as a favor to outgoing Auburger . Chatterton was his top SPY and INFORMANT during the scandals.

BLOG Administration is rejecting a lengthy comment where the author engages in name-calling. Sadly, the comment might otherwise be somewhat enlightening!

I apologize for whatever name calling you point out. And leave it at that. Take the content as fact and know that when the time comes, and I am able, it will all come to light. Until then Bye Bye!

SCATS said...

To 5:39PM ~~ I'm impressed! For the FIRST TIME in 8+ years, someone is apologizing!! TY.

Some of the security policies do need to be looked at. For one - the use of COMP time. True they have caps in the amount of money they can earn. But these hours are not legally documented as per the NYS Labor Board requires them to be. Is this a BOE policy? Nothing is ever turned in to Payroll to keep track of these hours. Can any one say fail that audit? When COMP time is used, does a sub get called in or is the building down a security guard?

As for the Security car - didn't the board get rid of this a few years ago? Who/how did this get reinstated? Do they really use it to deliver Superintendent Hearing letters. Doesn't Greece use the US Mail? Is there really another car slated in the budget this year?

Nice work if you can get it!


SCATS said...

To 4:28PM ~~ The SRO's were taken out of the budget a few years ago, but I never heard that the phony cop car was dumped. I've seen it all about town every school year.

I hadn't heard they intend to buy another one. SERIOUSLY!?

All of the security policies need to be looked at!
I think transpo is looking to purchase the new car per budget newsletter and not security.
Security budget is overrun per my sources; senior wages and retired PD wages too high - hired above contract step, too many guards working Athena events, no subs left - all have quit or will be quitting, problems with civil service, and much more!
Security car is solely for single problem student transport, delivery of work from school to Bridges, hearing letters, and as with all PD, the donuts. There is now a staff of 2 high paid guards running this car from 7 til 4.
