Why are you all complaining so much about the over-time? St. Pete campus will be lucky to get an over-time gig, and when it comes, its miniscule. I think that if your so tired of the draft, then start outsourcing. Call up USFSPPD for some help. There are plenty-o-officer looking to make some money.

Sorry, but thats probably not going to happen. You're telling me in downtown St.Pete where the Universtiy is, there's no overtime event ooportunities, I can't believe that? You need to work that out with St.Pete PD come over here where there area a lot of OT events.

St.Pete Usf Pd looking for overtime events on the Tampa campus or Sundome? I'm pretty sure thats not going to happen, sorry.

why?

After reading all the posts, I assume that if you work for USFPD at St. Pete., you're not allowed to work overtime at the Sun Dome. My question is, aren't you one agency (USFPD) but just assigned to a different campus? If so, why can't you work overtime at the Sun Dome if you regular assingment is at USF St. Pete.? That seems unfair to those not assigned to the Tampa Campus. Just my opinion....

Oh I can see it now...You have never been drafted on your weekend off, so I would not expect for you to understand how it feels. True, overtime is great, and I feel bad that you don't get the same chance to make a few extra bucks that we do, but your dammed if you do, dammed if you don't when it comes to overtime.

They'll never do it... St. pete campus is like the redheaded stepchildren. Hell, no one in pinellas county likes you anyway. Hope your applications elsewhere and your resume are up to date.

"No one in Pinellas County likes you" Thats real nice. Whatever happened to brotherhood of Law Enforcement? Be glad you're not working overtime at the Tampa campus, because that would probably open you up for the draft.

You'll get drafted about every long weekend you have off, or every other weekend. People that don't want to work overtime or don't need to, get drafted. People that want to work overtime events or need the overtime cash, will get drafted to work overtime events they don't want to work.

People that want to work overtime will complain that people who don't sign up for the events that they draft for aren't doing their part or carrying their weight and should sign up for events. People that don't want to work overtime don't want a 90 or 100 hour work periods say they should't have to. There is no winner in the draft.

I use to work o.t. in tampa all the time when I worked at usf st. pete! I guess they don't do that anymore?

Sundome, Ray Jay stadium, etc!

First: The two are not one in the same. There are different sets of SOPS, supervisors, commanding officers, etc. Only the name is the same. Patrol cars, uniforms, training, etc. all differ.

Second: We are all employed by the State of Florida through the Board of Education (I think). Our hiring processes are different and Tampa doesn?t handle St Pete applications.

Third: If a USF Tampa cop want to transfer to USF St Pete they just can't do that. There has to be an opening. Again we are to different agencies.

Forth: Now for the big overtime/draft issue. Yes overtime is great to have available for the extra money. Some USF Tampa officers don't need to work the overtime so they don't sign up. Others need the extra cash so they sign up all the time. However, even those that work lots of o/t like to have a day off now and then. If you sign up for lots of o/t the first time you decide to take a weekend off you get drafted. If you don't sign up for lots of o/t then it always seems like you get drafted for an event when you have something else going on. The talk of having USF St Pete officers working on Tampa campus would be no less complicated than having a USF Tampa officer work at the St Pete campus. Radio codes differ, knowledge of the community differ, policies differ, and the list goes on. Sure in time it could work itself out but like anything that would take time. And for any USF St Pete officer interested in this post, if USF St Pete did start working o/t on Tampa campus you guys are more than welcome to become part of our draft list and take your hits like we all do on the Tampa Campus. No one ever goes "yeah!!!, I got drarfted for en event".

Fifth: The USF Tampa campus has grown exponentially in the past several years and the police force has shrank. With that, the demands on the police force have grown but because our numbers have shrank those demands get placed on the officers that have remained at the department, they then have more responsibilities and those include work and being told they have to work even on their day off. And that my friend really sucks. Being told to work during a hurricane, disaster, major event, etc. is expected in law enforcement. However being told you have to work just to cover the very basics of events because we don't have the staffing to cover them again sucks.

If the officers at USF St Pete are interested in working o/t on the Tampa campus why don't you have someone call the USF Tampa events Lt. and discuss the possibility of that happening with him. Nothing on this post will get it accomplished.
