It used to be that when cops helped old ladies cross the street or fixed somebody’s flat, it was out of the goodness of their hearts.
But now, thanks to a new app on NYPD-issued smartphones, officers can log their good deeds and get credit toward promotions and transfers, officials said Thursday.
Yes, brownie points: There’s an app for that.
“We’re trying to measure things we didn’t measure in the past; nontraditional indicators that didn’t show up” in the old system of cop evaluations, Kevin Ward, chief of management and planning for the NYPD, said during a press briefing at One Police Plaza.

The new app will let cops log not only their arrests and summonses, but their on-the-job kindly acts, as when transit Officer Frank Rendina bought $18 compression socks for a needy homeless man, Ron Brown, at Grand Central station last week.
Supervisors will still need to verify the good deeds, along with arrest numbers, during each cop’s monthly evaluation, officials said.
The app will enable “a more holistic view of each officer,” Ward said, adding that previously, “It was purely by the numbers.”

That gives them something to do other than carry around their new "specially-modified" Glock 17s.

The kiss-asses are taking over the earth.

Promotions up to Captain are based solely on exam score. It doesn't say if they are going to be worth points/partial points on the exams like medals are.

“Police officers don’t pat ourselves on the back,” said one police source.

Yet every cop I know who had medal bars above their shield wrote themselves up for them.
