FSCPD I would like to know what AFSCME has done for you or your department. I know it was not getting you armed. Your turn over rate up there is high which leads me to believe you guys are new, ignorant or nieve to the operations of AFSCME. You have a whole 7 officers to patrol a state college police department 24/7. You guys make case law because one of your officers were untrained and did not present his knowledge of powers of arrest during appeal (which almost ruined it for the rest of us) as well as with no legal representation by your union let alone you administration. Yet you say this union is right for you and has represented you adequately. What ever your guys reason for staying with AFSCME is, most state and community colleges don't get what they need if anything with this union, yet you defend it. Sounds a little strange to me and to other state and community college police officers who know better.
