In defense of the JCPD, on wednesday I witnessed a vicious fight in broad daylight where one guy knocked out his opponent. very entertaining but this guy went nuts and started to call people out as they drove by. Before I could even get through to dispatch underrcovers had this clown against the wall. The response was under 5 minutes.



I think you have a good point about not comparing. It's not only the responsibilities that differ but the general dealings with the public.
I was talking to a cop I know about this several years ago over a few beers in the Park Tavern. He was a little drunk and a little bitter about it. He kept saying, not without envy, " Everyone loves a fireman" - and he was right. Fireman do nothing but help people. Cops, on the other hand, send people to jail. They even sometimes annoy generally law abiding people by giving them tickets. The cop was saying that's it's not easy being seen as the bad guy so often, even when you know you are doing the right thing. Fireman get nothing but thanks for what they do, and they hear things like, " Oh, God bless you for saving my kitten". Cops have to hear things like, " You mother****er", as they cart away someone's brother or son.

I definitely see everyone's point about the lack of professionalism by the JCPD, but I thought I'd give a little feedback from an actual JC cop about the subject.

These guys are all heroes.

btw - JCPD has improved tremendously in the past 20 years.

Yeah. It's very true. I tend to have a very bitter taste of the JCPD based on my past experiences 20 years ago. But, last January, someone broke into my apartment. And, I have to say that the officer was professional, prompt, courteaous, and spent a lot of time with us investigating. I was extremely pleased.....

My Father, Uncle, and Cousin are all JC Firefighters.. I recently moved back here from Forked River and It's comforting to know that our first responders most definately do their jobs well!

Gimme a break. Dealing with "stuff" is what they sign up for when they become cops. That would be like a fire fighter saying, he or she doesn't want to deal with a raging fire because it's too hot, or a doctor not wanting to deal with sick people.

I have to agree, JCPD is pretty useless. They refuse to respond when residents call to complain about the open drug dealing on Wayne Street. Once, when there was a robbery in my building, the cops came and lectured us for failing to research neighborhoods before moving to JC (and this is downtown JC, for fark's sake). One cop, who said he lives in Monmouth County, even bragged to his partner that "you'd never catch me living in Jersey City." WTF?!? They were basically saying we deserved to be robbed for living here. They wouldn't even come when another neighbor reported a break-in. They told her to go to the station to file a report. And I never once saw any of those cops standing on Columbus Drive when Grove Pointe and 50 Columbus were under construction so much as help a little old lady cross a busy intersection. When I lived in NYC, I'd hear an argument downstairs getting heated and possibly turning violent, call 911, and NYPD would be there within 5 mins. From what I've read on another thread, JCPD will tear you a new one for calling in a domestic disturbance.

JCFD, on the other hand, turned up within 4 mins when the fire alarm malfunctioned at Synergy and they couldn't deactivate it quickly enough. I say kudos to JCFD; it's about the only city department where I feel I'm getting my money's worth as a taxpayer.

It is truly unfortunate that you feel this way abt. the JCPD.

Do you really think the PD is filled with degenerates. Please qualify the statement. Why do you have such an opinion?

A few weeks ago we had a fire, not at our house but at the house next to ours. We had to evacuate too, because of the smell of smoke (and because fire could spread.)

When we woke up and went outside, the JCFD was already there, doing their job. They were awesome.

We had called the firehouse to see if we could send anything - a basket of cookies maybe - and where and what shift would be the best. They said they'd rather we put our thanks down in a letter to the chief, so that's what we did.

I agree with everyone else on here, they're fabulous, and their response time is amazing.

Thanks JCFD!

I've always been impressed with the JCFD. We had a flood in our basement when we lived in the Heights. It was during a huge spring rain - everyone on the street got hit. They responded to our call for help in a flash, helped make sure our home was safe from electrical fire, and really were great. I think they're a good bunch, too.

Now, when you look at the many degenerates in the JCPD, it's ironic that both organizations generally draw from the same demographic group of cohorts in the population at-large.


+1

Though I've never had to call them *knock wood*, they've ALWAYS responded quickly and handled the situation professionally for my neighbors.

Kudos!

The JC fire department has always been among the best there is. With all the attached housing and condensed population, they have to be. They're professional, take great pride in their role, and get the job done every time. I've lived here forever and there has never been a negative incident involving their work.

(Note: I'm not a fire fighter nor am I related to any.)
