A survey of more than 90 Santa Fe police officers shows a large majority of them lack confidence in police Chief Ray Rael’s ability to lead the department.

A survey conducted in February and released this week by the Santa Fe Police Officers Association and its president, Adam Gallegos, shows 76 percent of officers are not confident in the leadership of the Santa Fe Police Department. Eighty-five percent said Rael has not set forth a clear mission for the agency, 86 percent said Rael’s administration is untrustworthy, and 81 percent said it is not capable of meeting the “demands of the future.”

    Santa Fe Cops are always complaining about their chiefs! Even if St. Michael the Arc Angel was the Chief they'd find something to whine about him!

    Since when is this news? Police officers are rarely confident in their leaders. Perhaps a more noteworthy story would be about the citizens of Santa Fe lacking confidence in the entire city police force. Property crime in this city is through the roof. Where are our police officers while homes are getting burglarized? They are downtown writing tickets to pedestrians for jaywalking. In case you haven't noticed at least 2 units are always present at the scene of a routine traffic stop. Do we see this in other cities? NO! Are there property crime statistics in as bad a shape as Santa Fe's? NO! I wonder if there is any correlation? Lol

    Can I just say - I live next door to a police officer - who is home a large majority of the time - he drives a new police utility vehicle or an unmarked car that is parked at home...ALWAYS...the only time I see it move is when his girlfriend jumps in it to warm up and move the vehicle - which I'm sure is in violation of some city policy or sop). But it does not seem that he is suffering from overwork - in fact quite the opposite - it makes me think I'm in the wrong profession...[wink]
