Promotions shall be made from an eligibility register.  The positions on the register shall be attained as a result of the combined scores of all items listed under the subjects and weighting factors section.

In the event of ties, candidates shall be listed in order of their department seniority and in the event of equal seniority, by lot.  A converted score will be computed and sent to each candidate based upon the number of his/her correct answers.

Pursuant to the needs of the department, candidates on the promotional register will be scheduled to attend the Sergeant Promotional Assessment Course conducted by the DPDTrainingCenter.  Successful completion of the Sergeant Promotional Assessment Course is a requisite for probationary assignment to the rank of Sergeant.

 VIII.        PROMOTIONAL POLICY

When vacancies occur, candidates from the promotional register will be promoted to the rank of Sergeant for one (1) year on a probationary basis.  Duty assignment will be determined administratively.  The decision will be based on careful consideration of the officer’s past experience and capabilities, as well as the immediate needs of the department.

Probationary Sergeants will be given the salary, badge and insignia of the rank and be expected to perform all the duties and assume all responsibilities commensurate with the rank of Sergeant.

 

At the end of one (1) year, the officer’s performance will be evaluated and a determination will be made as to whether the officer is entitled to promotion and confirmation in the Sergeant.

  1. XVI.        WEIGHTING FACTORS (Educational Credit and Assessment Center)

 

  1. C.   Courses taken in specialized business programs, trade schools and any other instructional programs, not acceptable for credit in a baccalaureate degree curriculum, are not eligible for consideration.  Acceptability of credits in a baccalaureate degree program is determined by their appearance on a transcript from an accredited college or university.  No credit will be given for fractions of a year of college.

 

  1. D.   The Assessment Center will function in accordance with established guidelines.

 

  1. XVII.        PROMOTIONAL ELIGIBILITY REGISTER

The number of positions on the register will be determined in advance of the written examination based on an assessment of potential vacancies and to ensure an adequate pool of potential candidates from which promotions may be made during the projected life of the register.  For example, if the assessment of personnel requirements indicates that one

 hundred (100) names will comprise the promotional register, then only those officers who attain the top one hundred (100) scores on the written examination will proceed to the AssessmentCenter phase of the promotional process.

Promotions shall be made from an eligibility register.  The positions on the register shall be attained as a result of the combined scores of all items listed under the subjects and weighting factors section.

In the event of ties, candidates shall be listed in order of their department seniority and in the event of equal seniority, by lot.  A converted score will be computed and sent to each candidate based upon the number of his/her correct answers.

Pursuant to the needs of the department, candidates on the promotional register will be scheduled to attend the Sergeant Promotional Assessment Course conducted by the DPDTrainingCenter.  Successful completion of the Sergeant Promotional Assessment Course is a requisite for probationary assignment to the rank of Sergeant.

 XVIII.        PROMOTIONAL POLICY

When vacancies occur, candidates from the promotional register will be promoted to the rank of Lieutenant for one (1) year on a probationary basis.  Duty assignment will be determined administratively.  The decision will be based on careful consideration of the officer’s past experience and capabilities, as well as the immediate needs of the department.

Probationary Lieutenants will be given the salary, badge and insignia of the rank and be expected to perform all the duties and assume all responsibilities commensurate with the rank of Lieutenant.

At the end of one (1) year, the officer’s performance will be evaluated and a determination will be made as to whether the officer is entitled to promotion and confirmation in the rank of Lieutenant.

Important Information Regarding the City of Detroit 457 Deferred Compensation Plan {0}

Please Review This Important Information

IMPORTANT BENEFIT NEWS 

City of Detroit 457 Deferred Compensation Plan- (the”Plan”), please be advised that City of Detroit cannot give legal advice, and you should consult with your attorney or other advisor. However, it is important to note that all assets of the plan are set aside in a separate trust and/or insurance contract for the exclusive benefit of the plan participants and their beneficiaries pursuant to federal law (Section 457(g) of the Internal Revenue Code, the “Code”). As a result, the assets of the Plan (and the income related to such assets) are only available for the benefit of plan participants (and beneficiaries), and cannot be accessed by the City of Detroit or its creditors for any other purpose.

 By way of background, Code Section 457(g) was specifically added in 1996 to protect the benefits of governmental employees under a 457 Deferred Compensation Plan in times of bankruptcy or other financial distress of governmental employers.  This section of the Code requires an eligible governmental plan under § 457(b) to hold all assets and income of the plan in a trust for the exclusive benefit of participants and their beneficiaries.  Assets are set apart from the governmental employer’s general assets to ensure that creditors of a financially troubled entity could not make any claim on the assets of the plan.  

 If you have any additional questions about your 457 Deferred Compensation Plan, please contact your local Deferred Compensation account representative or Finance Debt Management at (313) 224-3310.
