Where o' Where is Trish?!

Ok, so APD's Trish Hoffman is still around talking to the media and giving them the "low down" on the latest crime. Sometimes she even gives them straight info with no spin. A few months back there was a big to do over Ms. Hoffman and her association with the runaway bride. If you recall, Hoffman was on of the officers that escorted the reluctant bride through the Albuquerque airport. The brain trust on the 11th and 5th floors thought that could capitalize on Hoffman's 15 frames of fame and started a recruitment campaign.

We were skeptical of the campaign because we believed that it really didn't send the right message to potential recruits. More importantly, it made the department look well... silly. They followed the initial runaway bride board with one featuring a "proposal" scene between Hoffman and APD's chopper pilot. This time Hoffman was the bride.

Last month APD pulled down all of the billboards featuring Hoffman and her new hubby and apparently burned every copy because despite our best efforts we were unable to find one. Our Eyes tell us that the boards weren't having the intended effect. Seems that APD was actually losing recruits to other departments due to the over-use of Hoffman and the bride theme. Our Eyes say that recruiters were being told that it looked too much like APD revolved around Ms. Hoffman and that the billboards were more about promoting her than the department.

The new boards feature welter weight world champion Holly Holm. They amuse us because the theme "They've Got My Back" makes us wonder who's got their back; from what we've heard it's not anyone on the 5th floor, but we digress. They should have thought of this before they took the bride thing one board too far.

Trish is a good troop, lets not forget she does what Walsh does for 1/2 the money or less. Of course the dept. has a bunch of people that went to a PIO school that they could use also, but apparently being Ray's lunch buddy when he was a DC makes one worth over $80K as a contract civilian in retirement.
That being said that new picture is great -- sure works the "diversity" aspect doesn't it?

More really sucky advertising. I couldn't figure out whos back they had. APD really needs to get together with a professional advertising agency because the do-it-yourself bit just ain't working.

Anonymous said...

Lets not forget Trish Hoffman is an officer with this department and by all standards a good one. I find it hard to believe that she was granted full undue restraint to spend recruitment funds as she saw fit. The problem lies with the administration, not Trish Hoffman. Deputy Chief Castro is in charge of recruiting. Have these recruitment adds been his brain child if so the buck stops there. Trish Hoffman represents your department very well and may have just been the pawn in a series of poor recruitment adds.

Two questions:

1. How much taxpayer money was wasted on the Trish Hoffman campaign? I think the public deserves to know how the brass at APD is wasting their money.

2. The job of PIO was best done by civilian Tony Herrera. There has never been a better PIO. Therefore shouldn't cops be doing things that only cops can do? Like arresting people and writing tickets? It is a waste of tax dollars to spend thousands to certify a APD officer and then only use them to speak into a microphone. Add to this the crisis in staffing (a valley officer told me there are only 7 officers for dayshift on some days, makes you feel safe to work downtown huh?) shouldn't Schultz be taking every sworn officer and placing them in the field and letting civilians do jobs that don't require being certified as a police officer?

APD's command staff just cannot seem to put it together. They lack direction and leadership. OH for the days of Jerry Galvin.

No shit!! Bring back Galvin. And, just what the hell does Joe Bowdich do besides shine Ray's boots?

He licks them too, I hear. Come on guys...you all know how hard it is to get a spit shine these days.

One can only assume the Galvin comment was tongue in cheek - that f*cktard was a dark day in the Departments history, as he was in Cleveland. That said I agree with the civilian PIO idea as long as they work for an amount commensurate to what a sworn PIO does. Two cops could do Johns Walsh's job for the cost of him

Anonymous said...

Bowdich sleeps during all the staff meetings and is only there to give the dept crediability that Schultz can not provide!

Besides, he hired PHD CAO Pearlman for a city job many years ago, now it's payback.

Anonymous said...

I think Hoffman looks good in pictures and you're right, she does the PIO job for half the price and looks so much better doing it. Walsh is Schultz' friend and Schultzey pays him very well. Hoffman does the majority of the work. Walsh has it made. Hoffman is the only one that goes out on call outs late at night. walsh never gets out of bed but earns a great salary.

This administration is all about taking care of their friends with high paying jobs.

I think Galvin did a much better job than this current administration. At least he was honest and you knew where he was coming from. He also was not trying to screw the troops over all the time.

I think Mary Molina Mescal was the best PIO APD had.

Anonymous said...

are you kidding me, Mary Molina PIO she was a deputy director and did pio half assed,,,unless you have been a pio before and there have been many, you go be on call 24/7 and let the public know all the bad stuff that happens here and still like what you do,,,1 officer is going to make a difference in the field? give me break,,,Hoffman has represented your department and the city in a professional manner, her class she does for womens self defense is always full, now full until 2008, she has done more in the PIO spot than anyone before, hmmm lets see how well a civilian does when going to an officer invloved shooting, homicide, bomb threat because they will know and understand the job so well. The fact is she was requested to do the billboards, and crimestoppers requested her to do the add about cooking, they received more money in a week because of her than ever before, so yes sit their in judgement of her and your administration, and keep whining about your horrible pathetic selves, when she moves up in APD, which she will do, the community will miss her energetic, professional way she gaves us what we needed which was accurate information. The only thing Hoffman has ever done wrong was be associated with a SWAT member who has felt up prostitutes, broke a persons arm, been fired, and slept with most of the skanks in Albuquerque. Way to wise up Trish. you have made us proud and we belive in you and APD

joe schmedlap said...

above poster, you were doing good until the last two or three sentences. That shit about her ex was beyond being uncalled for. He is a great guy and you ended up sounding like one of the jilted ''skanks'' yourself. Trish is a damn good PIO and a solid person but that rash sewage you spewed about her ex is full on libelous.

Anonymous said...

Two posts up, that was bad. Her ex is a good guy, but what can one expect from the 5th floor administration!!!!

Sound and looks as if the person in charge of advertizing has a crush on Hoffman. Seems to always be around her.

The 5th floor needs to stop bashing the APD Officers.

Remember guys, you will be gone in two years and will be regular civilians, no rank.

We will still be here when you try to ask for favors. Your time is short and you will have no friends on APD. Remember that when you treat us bad.

Sheriff White is on 770 talking up all of his deputies. I never hear our Chief doing that. He is always on the radio defending Marty, not one word about his troops.

Trish has done a good job, but just where does it end? We need cops on the streets, we don't have the ability to have them doing jobs civilians can do.

Fire the 5th floor, combine APD and BCSO into a METRO Force lead by the Sheriff (an elected official). I bet the majority, yes the majority, of those in uniform right now would support this. Those in the minority can either suck it up, retire (if eligible), or seek employment elsewhere. The details can be easily worked out for the benefit of the group.

I agree, we do need an elected official that does not get his strings pulled like Schultz.

Schultz could give a shit about the officers. You can sure tell that the post a few up is coming from the 5th floor right next to Bowdich's office. He is such a kiss ass considering he was a second choice and is considered sloppy seconds.

ENOUGH of trish already... funny noone mentions the fact she was having an affair with a married man, who later left his wife for her. please leave her on the 5th floor, if you have ever worked with her, you know what i mean. arent her 15 minutes of fame over already?
by the way, the comment about her ex, was way off base... he is the one who taught her the self defense, she now teaches. oh please, when was the last time she handcuffed or used force on anyone? trish walks around like she owns the place...

if you notice how the comments have gone from bitching about the chief(which is everday and getting old) to harping on the pio(first John now Trish), who has done nothing to most likely anyone of you. lets see well if you knew the entire story which Im supposing you dont, her ex had been screwing around on her their ENTIRE marriage,,,thanks to the people(his friends) that had enough balls to let her know,,not to mention how many others, she was able to move on,,,sorry that you cant,,,when did this start to become a story of them,of the past,but since you mention it,,she was not having an affair, a##hole,,,apparently you are just jealous of her, and what her acknowlegments have been, as for HIm teaching her self defense,,,BS,,,Im assuming when you take a class in your career to be certified that means you really dont know what to do huh? give credit to the instructor instead,,now that makes so much sense,,,all he has ever taught anyone(his friends that cover for him),,is how to lie, be a great CHEATER, be a horrible parent, and treat civilians like a piece of crap, oh and lets not forget HE was FIRED!!!! hmmmm thats right for feeling up a prostitute, and beating the crap out of someones. But gosh how soon we forget, you must be gay then for standing up for someone who was fired, and such a weasle, and how heart felt you are for a horrible officer.

Trish is a great officer and no one says otherwise. The Chief and his staff are another matter.

No one has bashed Trish, everyone seems to like her.

Serveral post up is a DC again just blowing off steam just because no one agrees with the way they treat their officers. The only positive info on the chief is typed in by the DC and we know who that is. He is the one that has the crush on Trish!

If the chief was so great, why did he not come out on the news last night and say his officers need that raise where the City Council has set money aside.....Are you kidding, he would never stick his neck out for his officers..

Instead, he sides with the Major in an attempt to hold back that money and us it elsewhere until they have no choice but to give the officers the raise they deserve.

How long has it been since they recieived an across the board raise????? about 6 years or so.

If Schultz and his staff really cared about the officers, they would advocate a raise for them, but they will not go against the mayor..

Last night the CAO looked like a joke. He did not know what to say and sounded like a backsliding idiot!!Does he really think people think it that hard to give the officers that money. What an idiot! Maybe he should go and copy some other city's process and claim it as his own. He seems to do that well.

Come on Chief, stick up for your officers for a change. They need that raise, you and your Deputy Chief's got theirs!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Jesus Christ! Several comments up.
Learn how to write. That was surely written by one of the DCs.
So who has the crush on Trish? Callaway,McCabe, I'll bet it's Castro. Why is it so difficult to give praise to your troops? Because Marty wouldn't like it? Then, what does that say. Marty doesn't like cops? Hmmm.. Sure sounds like it to me.
We have money for every other GD thing in this city, but the most important thing which is public safety, we skimp on. The police union needs new leadership that has the balls to jam a pay raise down Marty's throat, and just take his ball away and kick his ass off the field.
This coming from a civilian, a taxpayer. One of the many thousands who feel the same as I do.
If the cheif can't say it, I will.
On behalf of the voters and taxpayers of Albuquerque, you guys in blue, the rank and file, are doing a great job and are very much appreciative of the job you do. Enough said.

I'd like to see someone not on the take, but this is ABQ.

The last across the board raise was back in 2000 under Galvin. Those were the good old days of a chief who at least would tell the mayor to give his troops a raise.

Here is the big question, will Marty buy off this APOA president like he did the last one? Didn't that APOA president go from Open Space patrolman to the Director of Labor for the city? That sure sounds like a normal promotion.

cartman said...

You guys dont forget what Marty did last time == frozen steps led to 15% over 3 years, which everyone seemed to not notice equaled only owed 4% a year step plus 1% actual raise. I worked for Chief Joe back then and personally had a talk with him about that. Marty rode that horse for years using political slight of hand to distract us all from the fact that 80% of the Dept. was in steps at that time so only the people who were topped out got that raise really -- the rest just got what we were owed, without retroactivity, plus a 1% a year raise when the C.O.L.A. adjustment nationally was over 3% a year -- literally we were backing up by 6% over those 3 years if one actually did the math.

Anonymous said...

Marty will try to do the same with this raise as well. He will also try to get the unions on his side for the governors race.

We need to stop him!!!! We do not need another Lawerence Torres who sold APD down the river, but why should Lawerence care. He was not a real APD Officer anyhow. He couldn't even get into the APD Academy. He had no loyality to APD and it showed.

Now Lawerence is pushing his best friend, another open space cop that could not make an APD Academy to become an APD Captain. Rueben Griego, aka Ex- City Councilor Vince Griego's son who now is an APD Lt without ever testing for an APD Sgt's or Lt's position.

Rueben couldn't get into APD the right way, so Mayor Marty made him an APD Lt via the back door...

Now they will make him an APD Captain all without an APD full lenght Academy.

Well, look at where they put Lawrence Torres with his high school education.

You can't blame Marty for everything with this. There were members of the APOA that tried to warn the membership about what was happening. The membership ignored them. Hopefully they have learned from it.

When Galvin and Polisar were chiefs they publicly asked the city council and mayor to give their troops good raises. What this chief will not go against is his mayor. Ray is a decent guy, he just needs to realize that yes he works for Marty, but more than that he works for the men and women of APD. He needs to stand up and take control of his department and not just be a good soldier. He is the leader, not the soldier.

A true leader is someone who will stand up against an organization's wrong doings when no other supervisors will! Risking everything like certain future advancement, but throwing it away for doing what is right. Exposing in justice and the decay of morale fiber within an organization when no others will stand with you. Being labled an outcast when several civic organizations and heads of governments formally recognize your scarifice for doing what is right.

Some lable this type of a leader as a renagade, but this person has the backbone when all others follow the good ole boy system.

This leader is discredited and not promoted for doing what is right and made to look like a thorn within the organization.

However, the public knows this leader has stood and continues to stand alone against an organiztion filled with hatered and betrayal.

This what a real leader is, not a follower.

I dont see how venting is bad for either side, may do everyone some good. AS for the DC you guys are ragging on I really doubt he is the troll here... since Im one of the folks getting kicked in the nads for somebody elses posts I think that if I (or Mr Cartman who apparently talks like me enough that someone thinks he is I) was bugging him with our posts he'd just call me. I think this thing is being subverted by a few trolls and they are going to use this as some news story or something - The PIO, the chief, the DCs, old retired guys like myself -- I dont think we are the ones posting some of this crap but I bet one day there's a story that makes it look like thats what happened. Remember the KDT messages after the Rodney King story and how the chatter there became as big a part of the story as him getting beat down? This site is in danger of being just like that. So either own what you say so somebody knows you are for real, or maybe chill the verbiage down to a point where it doesnt embarass the entire membership when it comes time for a negotiation or whatever.

Where do you people get off to criticize everyone as you do? You idiots don't even know the background of most of the 5th floor; Does it matter to you that the administration holds experience in law enforcement and administration and that may be why they are in the positions they are in? Not because of someones anonymous choice; but because they put their time in on the street as a cop and furthered their career managing professional police departments. Is experience worth nothing? Does longevity and years of hard work mean nothing? Do we pay younger staffers the same as someone with three times the experience and education? Just because.......
Experience is something you obviously don't have.......Professionalism is something you obviously don't have......Common courtesy is something you obviously don't have.........Respecting professionals who have put in years of experience in the above mentioned avenues is something you obviously don't have.
You comment on the personal life of these people like you are in bed with them. Recognize the experience of the current administration, the years they have served their police department and community. Think about all the nights aways from their family; or the nights they are ALL on call. You speak as though you morons would know their on call schedule? (hmmmmm) You are oblivious of the commmitment of these guys and their families sacrifice; My question would be why do they continue to serve you idiots? I guess, because they are professional, committed, moral, intelligent administrators, working very hard to improve the community for Albuquerque's citizens. It is very disheartening that they have to even be associated with the low class likes of you
unprofessional, unintelligent whiners.

be about issues and things happening in the city, all this is, is a place to talk crap about people and not have to say it to their face,,,thats mature, and so professional, gosh grow up and have some respect at least for yourselves, but that would be the right thing to do, huh, couple post up,,,got turned down eh?, and there is no way in hell, that you know Trish personally, she would never associate with someone like YOU!! you wish

Well I'm glad to see my brother and sisters in blue continue to be so friendly to each other since I've left.
Really is it necessary to be so "Loyal", oh wait I'll let you pull that knife out of your back.
You should use this site as way to covey to the community the needs of the department, but you use it to air everyones dirty laundry. If that's your goal well you have accomplished it, but I thought, when I heard about this website, it was to make the department stronger.
STAY STRONG FOR YOUR CAUSE!

Wow, talk about who doesnt know Trish, I know for a fact that she was seeing a married APD pilot while she was still married to her ex! More of the facts? She did her best to get Jeff Arbogast fired by having some friends of hers email the mayors office and complain about him as PIO! Yeah she is all about integrity and honesty,,,,be for real! I happen to know her ex since he was a rookie officer and he is probably one of the nicest most respected officers on APD. And as for dating skanks,,,he was married to Trish!!!

We need to stick togeather and not pick on our own. The real problem lies, pun intended with the 5th flor administration. We need to focus on working as a group to bring about change, not pick on each other.

We have enough problems from the 5th floor as it is!

I like the site better when it is just a trash talk gossip line, more interesting.

Maybe more interesting, but does nothing but make us look bad in the eyes of the public. No wonder we can't get respect from administration when we can't even give respect to eachother.

Finally, someone at APD that gets it! Thank You.

The public is already aware of the back stabbing! Having Trish Hoffman "doing the city" as a married woman and acting like she IS APD has not helped your image. APD needs a new image & a fresh start with a PIO with integrity!

Sounds like your the one for the job! You sure got integrity talking about her that way.

It’s amazing how much some of you think you know about other people.

I dated Brad while he was married to Trish,,,he told me he was divorced,,,big surprise there, actually we dated for a long time as I found out while he was married, of course as he always does he cheated on me with Kari Brandenburg,,,nice values, morals, maybe she can help him stay out of trouble,,,she will learn, hopefully sooner than later, poor thing she has no idea what kind of person she is dealing with

As far as Joe Bowdich goes..I TOTALLY agree. While he was the Sheriff of BCSO it was so bad we all wanted Gallagher back...All he ever did was walk around with a cup of coffee in his hand and back up everyone BUT his own deputies. He is also a bonifide liar. What a waste of a paycheck for APD...
