    Looks like it's official - this thread was accurate from day 1. Adderely is named the new chief. Now we can all breathe and hope that he rids us of this dead weight holding us down bringing into 21st centutry policiing.

    Who knew

    According to no longer wpb mayor, jeri muoio: “I believe Sarah Mooney is one of the best police chiefs in the country. She is revered by the community."

    WOW !!, who knew what a superstar that the tax payers of West Palm Beach had for the past few years. I AM SURE THAT ALL OF THE FAMILIES OF ALL OF THE PEOPLE SHOT DEAD UNDER HER WATCH WOULD STRONGLY DISAGREE WITH ms. muoio.

    Perhaps we all should allow the newly elected officials of West Palm Beach to make their own decisions based on facts and statistics and not personal associations. After all, wasn't it ms. muoio who appointed former chief mooney to her former position without a nationwide search !

    WHO KNEW....?

    Whooo Knew

    According to mz. Jay moyo who is no longer the mayor of WPB; “I believe Sarah Mooooney is one of the best police chiefs in the country. She is revered by the community.”

    Who knew how lucky all of the citizens of West Palm Beach have been over the past several years……or were they?

    I AM SURE THAT ALL OF THE FAMILIES OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN SHOT AND KILLED UNDER HER WATCH WOULD STRONGLY DISAGREE !

    Perhaps jerry should enjoy retirement and allow the current elected officials make these decisions based on their review of the facts and statistics, not their personal feelings. After all wasn’t it mz. moyo that appointed former chief mooooney to that job in the first place over many better qualified candidates?

    Haha Adderly is all dead weight. This guy is a train wreck waiting to happen again. Maybe West Palm has another Scott Rothstein he can cozy up to. Maybe he will move into a nice gated community where his ex-wife can’t find him to take more shots at him. Enjoy your new Chief if you can find him. Hint check the gold courses. Hahahahaha.

    Healing Not Squealing

    Lets focus on doing our jobs and addressing crime in our city instead of crying about the old chief who is fortunate enough to continue working and collecting her pension....?

    Lets move on and start addressing why we can't close out homicide cases and why the residents won't talk to us.

    Lets start to build back the trust that we have lost with certain neighborhoods and communities.

    Lets support the new Chief and make this a safe and prosperous city again !

    High-ranking police officers guarded over Rothstein
    BRITTANY WALLMAN
    NOVEMBER 14, 2009 02:18 PM, UPDATED JULY 30, 2013 05:26 PM
    Twenty-eight city police officials, including captains, majors, undercover officers and the department spokesman, helped guard the home and businesses of attorney Scott Rothstein while, federal agents say, he ran a $1 billion Ponzi scheme.

    Rothstein has not been charged or arrested, but federal agents seized his assets this week.

    Records released Friday show the off-duty work by Fort Lauderdale police at Rothstein's home in Harbor Beach, his Bova Prime restaurant on Las Olas, and the nearby Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm was so heavy, it required two police officials to coordinate. Rothstein's cadre of uniformed officers included many high-ranking supervisors in the department. Two coordinators, Sgt. Steve Greenlaw and Officer DeAnna Garcia, were paid a 5.5 percent cut of the security-guarding total each week.

    As Broward County absorbs the shocking allegations in the case, new attention has turned to Rothstein's coziness with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and to one official at Broward Sheriff's Office. Rothstein's friendship with officers and deputies dates back 20 years, with his work as a labor attorney representing police officers and unions. At least one investor said he bragged about his closeness to law enforcement.

    Fort Lauderdale police officials said Friday that their officers were not witnesses to criminal activity during their 24-hour work for Rothstein, and no officer raised any concerns that an investigation into economic crimes might be warranted.

    "There is no police department employee that had any idea what was going on, to my knowledge," said Sousa, the spokesman, who worked at Rothstein's home several times and filled in occasionally at Bova. "… There is no wrongdoing on the part of our officers."

    Rothstein was the only person in the department's history to have permanent round-the-clock off-duty police protection at his home. Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Frank Adderley said he stands by his decision to allow the one-of-a-kind guard duty. Rothstein met the city policy that the employer not be a felon, and be of good moral character, he said.

    Rothstein paid $40 to $50 an hour to the officers over 31 weeks beginning in April. At a weekly tab of at least $7,545 just for guarding his home, and $2,000 a week at the law firm, the total would have hit $296,000 by the time it ended. He also spent at least $31,620 for the Bova detail.

    The department halted all work for Rothstein on Nov. 2, after investors raised concerns that the attorney may have misappropriated hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Adderley said he was friendly with Rothstein, ate at Bova every Thursday and attended a political fund-raising party at his home but didn't socialize with him.

    He said he knew Rothstein gave money to the poor and had no evidence he was "anything less than a good citizen." He didn't see this coming and was shocked when allegations came to light.

    "Who is not shocked by this?" Adderley said.

    Friday, Rothstein remained a free man, as federal agents said they were working to build a case in what is now thought to be one of South Florida largest investment frauds.

    Broward Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Leljedal said the agency did no off-duty detail work for Rothstein. But Rothstein's ties to at least one Sheriff's Office employee are under scrutiny this week.

    Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti on Thursday moved one of Rothstein's longtime friends, Lt. David Benjamin, out of his position as commander over Internal Affairs, because of his relationship with Rothstein. Benjamin provided a personal escort to Rothstein to get aboard a jet and leave the country to Morocco two weeks ago.

    Lamberti said the Sheriff's Office also opened an investigation Friday into a corporation Benjamin has, DWB Consulting Group LLC, "to determine whether his outside business met all the BSO rules and regulations regarding outside employment."

    Political consultant and former Rothstein associate Roger Stone said he met Benjamin and Col. Tom Wheeler of the Sheriff's Office at Rothstein's home last year. They were planning Lamberti's election campaign.

    Stone said he originally thought Rothstein's desire to be surrounded by officers was part of the trappings of wealth and power. Now he thinks Rothstein might have been threatened by investors. He called Rothstein's police connections "genius."

    "If you're surrounded by cops, no one will suspect you're a crook," said Stone.

    Rothstein said this summer that the March 2008 murder of his friend and colleague, Melissa Britt Lewis, scared him into hiring full-time police guards, though he'd had bodyguards in the past.

    "I am a businessman," he said. "I don't want to be followed home and shot."

    Wouldn't That Be Nice.....

    I am amazed that anyone in this agency has the nerve to take cheap shots at anyone including an accomplished 40 year veteran Police Officer / New Chief.

    This place is filled with angry, racist, sexist, steroid using, criminals with badges ! All of them have been fortunate enough to keep their jobs for way too long. It is embarrassing and frustrating.

    Yet theses are the first ones to take cheap shots at someone else. I guess it takes everyone's attention off them, for now......

    Maybe a few of the good cops in this place can finally be acknowledged and maybe even promoted.

    Wouldn't that be nice !

    Adderley is in his mid 50s. Get your facts straight.
