Many of you have read the article in the Detroit News regarding our members working overtime. This article is slanted, disrespectful and blatantly misleading. I will be posting a response soon.
To: All Members
From: Cpl. Brian Earle, President WCDSA
A couple of weeks ago the CEO's office presented an overview of the "New Jail Build". I am attaching the document they presented so the members can see the process so far.
Today President Earle and I met with Chief of Staff Michael Turner and the Sheriff phoned into the meeting as well.
* The Sheriff has agreed that the Flex Academy will be equal balance (half discretionary/ half seniority).
* The Sheriff stated that there will be NO civilians in the academy, only deputies who are non-sworn.
The Sheriff has announced that he is taking applications from those intersted in attending the Flex Academy that is scheduled for fall 2014. Please see the attached memo with information regarding the application process.
