As anybody associated with the City Of Harvey can attest, The Harvey Police Dept. has had many Officers come through it's door's. I am curious how many are still serving as Officers elswhere. I do believe it's a large number and a shame. What would the City be like if there were no Politics involved and they paid a decent salary and if these Officers were still here, where they started.

Man there are alumni everywhere. The only career Harvey cops are the few that cant get hired anywhere else like the two faced tail waggin John Rizzi.

I think the city needs to recruit police officers, from a completly different state, like Mass, using different incentives to get them to come and live in Harvey. Incentives, such as housing, tax abatements and other things. They should look for high scoring all American cadets that are satisfied with basic pay and have a hard work ethic.

But it is not basic pay? You will not get qualified Officers for what they pay, period.

No, top pay for a 5 year p/o, per the union contract is like 65-68,000

That is enough to raise a small family on, especially if the woman works (like we both did), pick up a second small job here and there (like we both did) and live modestly (like we did)
That's the key....RE: Cheap houses....Harvey has a ton of them.
So they really get 65? in Harvey?

If that's true they get paid more than Riverdale/Dolton/South Holland. I know cops that worked for ten years and are just making that with overtime!

It aint what they are making, it is what they are scamming. Hell,most of them all are dirty as a pair of socks. They need to do like a metro police thing, link up Posin, Dixmoor, Dolton, Harvey tpe of thang. Then crackers from Posin are some what on the up.

Does the cracker live alright or is he in debt? Do you know?
I mean, as good crackers ourselves, we lived modestly but comfortable on that amount. We both made 49 each so we did fine.
What are the property taxes in Harvey?

The key is not the amount of money they are making, its the corruption in the police dept, under the leadership of the mayor. Once again we should be asking the feds, states attorney, what are they doing about the corruption, allegations, current cases, the unsolved murders, the drugs in the City of Harvey. The citizens of harvey deserve better. Hell the southtown will sell their papers in harvey, but will not inform the citizens of the murders, arrest, the politics, the governments responsibility to the citizens, so the citizens should demand they do or dont sell their papers there. and ask the suntimes or the chicago tribune to keep the citizens of harvey informed.

I was a Harvey police officer throughout the 1980's and an elected 2 term Park Discrict Commissoner. I am appalled to see what the community and the Police Dept has come to. Hell I was the former puppet Chief Andrew Joshua's training officer...never impressed me. Harvey at one time had a premier police dept with some of the finest officers in the country, and FYI the earlier post referred to "john" Rizzi that vas VINCE Rizzi he also had a son named Vince Jr on the dept for a while but he left for a Calumet City police job.

John Rizzi is still there. Vince Rizzi sr. was there along with Vince Rizzi jr. The old man was a hard ass but Vinnie Jr was a heck of a good cop. John is well, John the lifer.

The city of Harvey at one time had a decent, honest, premier police department? When was this? What happened? Why didn't what happened to Harvey happen elsewhere in the south suburbs? Why did it hit so hard in Harvey?
