How weird is it that BRPD can't find any recruits?
The SWB admin has been cultivating an image that the department is hostile to white officers, and all too giddy about throwing their officers to the wolves.

I am shocked that they are having trouble getting applicants.

Boggles the mind.

quote:

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Shortages at the Baton Rouge Police Department have peaked. With about 73 vacancies in the department, this year’s recruitment is vital.

Sgt. Rendy Richard has been tackling recruitment for 15 years and she says this is the biggest challenge she has ever faced.

“I’ve never really had issues with trying to fill slots,” said Richard. “This is definitely a challenge.”

The agency can allow for 698 officers and right now, they only have about 625. The unavoidable fact is BRPD is in dire need of more manpower.

“We need qualified candidates and we need them on the streets,” said Richard.

After breaking records in 2017, the number of killings last year in the capital city dipped to 87. Doing more with less in recent years has taken its toll on those tasked with keeping the community safe.

Well for $33K/yr starting, potential recruits are doing the math and realizing it’s simply not worth it, to work in a city where the northern inhabitants of the city hate you with a burning passion.

Well, I can't imagine why no one wants to be a police officer in Baton Rouge. Shocking, I tell you.

Kinda hard to believe that nobody wants to put their life on the line for a starting salary somewhere between 30-40k a year in a city that is as violent as BR.

re: How weird is it that BRPD can't find any recruits?
I don’t find it weird at all. If people knew how stupid you could be and still get a job there as long as you fit the right demographic then quite a few would be signing up. Unfortunately, most of these people have criminal backgrounds that prevent them from qualifying.

I’ll say this though. BRPD is a waste of money. Their traffic control is terrible. Their investigation skills are pitiful. The only thing they are good at doing is writing tickets to operators of motor vehicles. That starting salary is what they deserve with the operation Chief Dumbass has in place. Additionally, those officers work overtime and do private detail and make a great living. Don’t be fooled by the bull shite propoganda put out by the leftist newspaper.

I could go on all day about how BRPD doesn’t care about crime. You know why they don’t patrol North Baton Rouge? I do.

So BRPD doesn’t patrol north Baton Rouge?

I think the biggest factor is the shitty starting pay. If they paid better, they'd have more qualified applicants.

The hostility isn't helping, though. That's for sure.

Hostility from the thugs or the politicians? Or both?

Well hopefully there will soon be some vacancies at the St George Police Department if BRPD's finest are tired of being target practice. I'm sure it gets a little tiring driving into the hood to investigate a shooting where "nobody saw nuthin'" - only to he followed up by "these cops don't help solve anything..."

Nope. They respond to calls but they don’t patrol there.

yet they use what they have to take time to set up shop to hand out tickets for stop sign "violations" on bennington (set up .5 mi away and tell you, we saw you didn't come to a complete stop at 2pm in the afternoon (cut through from Perkins/animal hospital to Shell station on college)

Never change BRPD

Just imagine what this police force will be like in 10/15 years.

Well I wouldn’t blame them if they didn’t patrol. Shitty pay and everybody watching every little thing you do.

They all work enough overtime and secondary jobs to basically double their income.
