Program Canceled (or FEAR US part IV)

Things that make you go "Hmmm."

We get e-mails that certain bosses mention us at roll call occasionally. We heard an exempt mentioned us at the sergeant's school going on at the Academy. It's flattering, but it makes us wonder that with all this talking going on, why aren't our hits 2,000 a day? As noted in the previous post, we even get e-mail from the media (Mark Brown and others) and we are assured that Michael Shakman and Noelle Brennan have read/are reading the site.

We just got an e-mail stating that the practice of sending Beat Cars to DOC "hot spots" on first watch was hereby canceled. A boss (unnamed) even attributed it to that "website that everyone is reading." We could assume that this means the program is being stopped citywide, but we'd like verification.

Do we have aldercreatures reading? Did our readers reach out to enough people to provoke a Department response? Did FOP start making noises? Did some boss read about Mark Brown in the previous thread and realize the Department was about to reap a world of shit? What else has anyone heard?

Apologies to Mark Brown if we inadvertently killed any story you were working on regarding manpower shortages or district redeployments. You could still do quite a number about them hiring back people while denying there's a shortage though. They can't cancel a manpower shortage overnight as they just did with the redeployment program.

I very much doubt it was FOP that stepped to the plate. Thanks to SCC, I believe the powers that be started getting nervous as usual and put a stop to it before the media did.

FOP is to monitor any questioned area and act. But they wait untill its 4th down. Then when they are cornered they do as little as possible not to upset the city.

I want to know what we will get in return for this violation of manpower and district swapping.

The city would surely use this against us during contract negotiations. So Mr. Donahue, what are you planning to do??

I bet not a thing.

If we can credit the blog for the dismantling of that program, kudos to the blog. Now lets take aim on one of more other insidious programs that does nothing other than violate the rights of our citizens and generate money for the mayor to distribute to his crony's and that is the Seat Belt Missions. I can't think of one other thing that is officially sanctioned by the City that violates the rights of the populace more than Seat Belt Missions. Not to mention the fact that they take Officers away from what they should be doing, things like fighting crime or answering calls for service. Of course the City will say that the missions are there to prevent crime and will use the ONE incident where a gun was recoverd on a seat belt mission as proof that the missoins prevent crime, but we all know that the real reason they exist is to raise money, nothing more. I mean if the real reason we do them is to prevent crime, then why are we doing them in low crime areas like 001,018,019 or 016?

Don't have the Sun-Times paper in front of me, but today's papers mentions a South Side alderman who complained police manpower was being sent to Beverly.

Maybe Rugai should have stepped up and pointed out beat 2211, from west end of 022, was among cars sent to 011. She knew about this last summer when there was a rash of hold-ups on and near Western ave.

maybe we can throw mark brown a bone.

Why didn't the news ever investigate the environmental disasters beneath the "Old" stations and Areas?

The old rusty and leaking gasoline pumps.
In some districts the fumes actually seeped into the basements and required special venting.

How many cases of cancer have been discovered in those stations? How does the city sell the property?
How did it go overlooked in all media and by EPA for so long?
How many are left now and how come?

A gas station would never be able to escape the EPA by leaving old tanks in the ground at time of sale.
Is this one of those don't ask don't tell situations?

Check the old Gresham station.
We counted over 13 and that was over a cocktail, imagine if we were sober.

The city closed that station and left it dormant over 10 years.

By the way (Mark) the tanks are within 100 feet from a public school and 50 feet from residential housing.

Old 22 dist same story , tore down old bldg. What happened to the gas tank? Old 3, A/2 on Cottage,old 4, old 5 on Kensington,current 7, a/3,

Its important that everyone here who WORKS the 1st Watch MONITOR the situation to make sure it does not happen again.

On the PDT or PCAD system check USM G/011 on a DAILY BASIS. Also it would not hurt to check out other high crime districts to see if the department pulls the scam in the future.

People please understand this.......F.O.P. is not a union! It is a negotiating unit. WE CANT STRIKE! ITS ILLEGAL! There are constantly people being critical of this administration or the prior administration for not taking the city to task. Come on, have you ever been to one general meeting? I believe only 100 plus officers below the rank of SGT. qualify to run in any FOP election. Why is that? Because you have to attend at least half the meetings a year in order to run. Only 100 plus fit that diffacult qualification. Only 2000 members sent in their ballots for pension board. I'm willing to bet that the biggest critics are the least involved. Bitch all you want but if you arent willing to participate blame yourself for any inactions (real or perceived). Of course I'll be accused of being a hack for Donahue and or Daley...so be it!

First of all, I no longer am a WATCH Rep with the FOP.

However I feel that today’s leadership in Lodge 7 is pretty decent compared to the past. When its time that today’s Lodge 7 “gets stale”, THEN IT’S TIME TO VOTE THEM OUT and replace them with competent, ethical individuals that can go up against the city without any fear.

Compared to other “unions”, the way contacts, grievances and other issues are completed are pretty damn good. Other unions nowadays are still more or less like organized crime outfits. The unions of old would screw over its membership like you would not believe. Ask some old-timers out there who worked real jobs.

Its true, WE DO NOT have the right to go on strike. Instead we have “interest arbitration” as we know. THIS IS BETTER THAN THE RIGHT TO STRIKE believe it or not. When we no longer can negotiate with the city on a contract, it goes to an arbitrator that both sides agree on. The arbitrator looks at what all other comparable police departments are getting and then makes his decision. It’s a lot better than having the right to strike and not having an arbitrator, we would get nowhere like many other unions.

As far as complainant and ideas.. GET TOGETHER!! STAY TOGETHER!! GO TO GENERAL MEETINGS!!! When you have ideas, get together with other officers and form committees, PRESENT your ideas to the President and stay on him at every meeting. It’s true that “The squeaky wheel gets the oil”. Just look at this issue of detailing cars to 011… LOOK AT THE POWER OF THIS BLOG!! It works! STICK TOGETHER!! Let your voices be heard!!

to answer the 10:23 poster
The reason that FOP gets a raise whenever we do is because the bylaws provide for it
Either 50 cets or the percent of the raise wwhichever is greater

Perhaps now that the building is paid for, there can be a moritorium on the raises

And a moritorium on the $400 monthly stipend the 7 big shots gave themsleves in Addition to their D5 and D8 salaries

The FOP has done a good job overall no matter how you look at it.
1. We are one of the highest paid Departments.
2. We have one of the best medical policies 365 days and pay less in medical than most Departments.
3. When the FOP is made aware of problems they jump on them.
4. When you call FOP they always try to answer questions and they are polite.

PROBLEMS
We will always have these old fat ass coppers who think they can run things better. They will always speak out of turn at meetings, yell out stupid shit and act like they know it all. I have just over 10 years and to me this is one of the best FOP's. Everybody has there opinion and we should respect that, but if you want to bash and be heard do it in a professional manner no need to be an ASS. Things can't happen over night just try to get a building permit.

AND LAST- IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE CURRENT MEMBERSHIP THEN VOTE THEM OUT- GOOD LUCK.

CHICAGO -- Some South side Aldermen say their communities are being shortchanged on police protection as crimes are on the rise… WBBM Newsradio 780 Political Editor Craig Dellimore has the latest from City Hall… CLIP FROM WBBM780 WEBSITE
Several South Side aldermen on Wednesday complained that officers from the Police Department's old Public Housing Unit should have been re-deployed to neighborhoods where public housing residents moved after their high-rise buildings were torn down.

But Police Supt. Philip Cline said the department deploys its officers based on crime statistics, not where public housing residents live.

At a budget meeting at City Hall, Ald. Leslie Hairston (5th) told Cline "I don't want to see two Chicagos," where some neighborhoods get more police presence than needed and others do not get enough. "But that's what I'm beginning to see."

Hairston complained that when the department's Public Housing Unit was disbanded after many Chicago Housing Authority high rises were torn down under the CHA's 10 Year Plan for Transformation, the officers were not re-deployed to neighborhoods where former CHA residents moved.

At a news conference prior to the budget meeting, Hairston said, "Chicago Police Supt. Phil Cline knew that once public housing was torn down, crime was going to move from the housing developments to the city's neighborhoods and he hasn't done a thing about it."

But outside the meeting, Cline disputed that the fact CHA residents were being displaced from public housing high-rises to other areas of the city would necessarily mean crime would follow those residents as they moved.

Cline said, "There's a lot of law-abiding citizens that live in CHA and were displaced from CHA too, so we're not going to follow citizens, we're going to follow crime."

"We have discretionary forces that we move to wherever we see crime spikes. We follow crime, we don't follow people," Cline added.

Last year, the Police Department reassigned 40 officers from the public housing unit to work in five South Side districts, Central, Wentworth, Calumet, Chicago Lawn and Prairie, that are homes to existing CHA developments.

Another 80 officers were re-deployed to a new Targeted Response Unit, teams that deploy officers to crime hot spots in the city to conduct aggressive patrols.

Cline said that citywide, homicides and violent crimes have been on the decline for several years. "So I think the numbers speak for itself. We're doing the right thing out there," Cline said.

The superintendent said he is always willing to meet with aldermen to discuss their concerns and determine if any changes in strategy are warranted.

Ald. Freddrenna Lyle (6th) said she is pleased that crime is down citywide, but said in her ward, crime has gone up in recent years. "It's not going down where I live, in fact it's going up."

Lyle said she and her colleagues are often reluctant to question police tactics in their wards because they fear the district commanders who work in their wards will be held personally responsible for rises in crime and reassigned to other duties.

"We are put in a position where we are afraid to raise these issues because you might want to respond by snatching that commander. But it's not the commander's fault. He cannot make extra people. So if he doesn't have the people, no matter what he does, it's never going to be enough. It's like the little boy with his finger in the dike in my ward," Lyle said.

Cline said whenever the Police Department sees a spike in crime in a particular area, they try to re-deploy resources as much as possible, either by deploying officers from the Targeted Response Units, the Special Operations Section, or area gang teams.

Ald. Walter Burnett (27th), a former public housing resident, said he was disturbed by insinuations that public housing residents displaced by the CHA's Plan for Transformation would bring crime with them to the communities where they moved.

"Attacking CHA is just bothering me," Burnett said. "I take it personal."

Burnett said too many people in Chicago assume that if a former CHA resident moves next to them, crime will go up in their neighborhood.

"When they have CHA residents moving next to them, they think all of them are bad and I think, I know that's not what the mayor's trying to do when he's transforming public housing." Burnett said that most CHA residents are law-abiding citizens, just as the residents who live in the communities into which they have moved.

Probably because that is total BULLSHIT! There are still quite a few CPD, ISP and CC police living in that complex, and in the surrounding blocks.

There are a few shitheads in the area, but most of the problem is from the office buildings in the area that have telemarketing jobs. The assholes take the train there, and stop to break into a few cars to and from work before they get fired in a week.

You guys spreading fear and loathing regarding drug sales on 1614's beat are ignorant hacks. Burglaries are the problem there, just like all over 016. NOT drug sales.

HMMMM XXXXXL phil states today that 025 and 010 are the only districts at budgeted strength. Does this mean that those of us that live in the 19th ward were lied to by our aldercreature when she stated that 022 is at 100% strength and will continue to be. We need to unite and vote these hacks out!!

Bet Ginger wishes Hohm was back, she never got BS info. Garrity now tells her what she wants to hear.

But 022 front office is all hacks tools of the 19th Ward

Hey Living at Cathrine courts.
I worked Cabrini and ironically I ran into high ranking GD at the White Hen last week. Ill never go near there again. I lived over there when I first got on and Ive seen it change. Dont tell me you do work in 016 cause now I know you are lying. If you do live there go pay 1200 month live there while Joe Cabrini and family pay nothing. You better go to beat meeting and complain. Dont you have gang map up in 016? Oh thats right there are no gangs in 016 right? HAHA they are even foolin POS that "work" in 016.

I never said that I worked in 016. I have lived in the 5306 building for over 5 years though, like a lot of divorced and or single coppers.

You saw a "high ranking GD" at the White Hen? Oh my!!! I suppose you also saw the open air drug market that the strip mall allegedly turned into? No? Hmmm...wonder why.

I think it is hilarious that you morons see a black guy and imeediately spread rumors that the whole area is shit now. What about the apartments on NW HWY in Edison Park? Lots of black and hispanics living there now. Do you see any drug sales happening in front of Moretti's? Well, you probably do, but those are white coppers kids selling weed and coke to each other. But that's ok...as long as it isn't the scary blackman!

What I am telling you, is that there may be a GD or two that lives somehwere in that apartment complex, but to state that the GD's now have control over the area is just plain WRONG! I, and a lot of other coppers live there, and I am telling you that it just isn't happening like certain rumor mongers here want you to believe!

Two summers ago, a large group of black teen thugs started hanging out in the White Hen lot on weekends. 016 got rid of them effectively within a few weeks and there have not been ANY problems in that area since.

It is hilarious how afraid some of of you are of any one different than you. My ex-used to complain about how conservative/racist that I was. Frankly, I'm shocked at how liberal I must really be, because the stupid shit that I read here everyday is really depressing.

Brothers in blue...yeah right.

to you who said "i worked in cabrini" you say a high ranking member of the D's from the green's was observed in front of the white hen..you should of called the tact office,but instead you stated "im never going back there"you ran away and then you have the nerve put down 016th dist coppers. I never ran away from a situation where i thought the police needed to be called or take some action my self,,if i was off duty i would have told him to take his ass back to the greens if he knew what was good.i dont live in the courts,i live on 1614 beat and work a rapid that patrols that area..you saw 1 guy, you ran away,instead of making the call...dont ever say anyting about us in the 016th dist..and you worked the greens after they tore down 90 percent of the buildings...tell your friends you work the green not the real police...

Keep being ignorant to what is going on. I was on tact team in working district and in every meeting they would talk about drug activity in and around Pavilion and Cathrine courts. What is wrong with you. And you claiming teens hanging out and 016 did something about is bullshit. What did they do anov them to death? All I have to say is protect your area. I moved to 1631 beat and have real shitty beat officers that dont do shit and its pissing me off!!!!! Im in the same boat as you in 1614. Now I see my beat car is detailed to 011 some nights.

"

Ald. Walter Burnett (27th), a former public housing resident, said he was disturbed by insinuations that public housing residents displaced by the CHA's Plan for Transformation would bring crime with them to the communities where they moved.

"Attacking CHA is just bothering me," Burnett said. "I take it personal."

Burnett said too many people in Chicago assume that if a former CHA resident moves next to them, crime will go up in their neighborhood.

I find it amusing that you have #1 a cop who lives on the beat, in the area allegedly overrun by GD's, and #2 a cop that actually works on that very same beat, both saying that the rumors are false, yet guys who heard it at a gangs meeting are calling them liars.

What's wrong with this picture?

These are the same guys that don't believe a word said by the Department any other time, but now all of the sudden, the Department's info is golden.

Buncha rocket scientists, I tell ya...

good post by the 1614 defender..i hardly ever hear"gang dist" or "vice jobs" in 016,legit ones anyways.and the po po that do patrol,40 sect rapid to be exact,work hard...youll hear them giving good flashes on bike robberies ,suspiciuos person...etc...stuff that would be 19pauled in a "working"district.
some of the career 16 dist guys are pampered(turn a molehill into a mountain)but the ones who are experienced from previous dists know theres only so much you can do.and to say one area(cath courts) is overrun with "bangers",the whole district has pocket of them and they aint just from the greens,theres a ton of 13/14/25 dist families that sold their graystone and brought the "family" with them.

I have been on this job for 19 years never bad mouthed a copper second hand. If a guy punked out or backed down ya I had a problem with that type of copper. I think anyone reading this knows some copper like that. The good news is that there always seem to be enough of the real police out there to get the job done. Keep reading all this shit about 016 full of pussies and dogs to who ever keeps writing all that dont blanket the whole dist. As for me GCN. Fillmore, SOS and ya 016 so maybe you should look at the flip side. Thin blue line, remember? Someday I might have your back. 30 sector
