New Sergeants

Congratulations to all the new Sergeants! We'll dig up a list and type it in later tonight - unless someone wants to do it for us. Otherwise, you can page through the November Archives and see the original 71 people who went to investigator familiarity training. Add 29 detectives or so and - TADA! - instant list.

In the mean time, a special congratulations to someone who has been the butt of quite a few jokes lately...

... and will probably be the butt of quite a few more in the upcoming years. Decades even. Her name will probably become a noun in the sense of "You better not pull a _____ ." We expect these photos to be used in lesson plans for years.

A disgrace? You're a fucking idiot. Have some perspective little boy. A disgrace is when you have a whole tac team working for the dope man and you're embarrassed because you work in the same district (015 in '96). A disgrace was whenever Terry Hillard went on tv immediately after a police officer was accused of some nonsense and began apologizing and promising changes. Quit being so quick to rip on your fellow cops. People like you are part of the problem, not part of the solution. Have a sandwich, you'll feel better.

I think you should go back to 5th grade and study your "Hooked on Phonics" tapes.

Dear M.
It's a friggin shame that I cannot point out to YOUR readers about how disgraceful it is to be seen driving a marked police vehicle and eating a sandwich at the same time without being bashed for spelling.

That Officer could have waited until he got home to eat dinner.

I myself seldom eat during my tour of duty. (Which I believe is the reason for my girlish figure. I've could've passed the fitness test 10 years running now.)

But anyway, I was very much impressed with YOUR president's State of the Union Address. He made some key points, especially about us being addicted to oil.

Keep up the good work M.

One Las Vegas police officer is dead and another officer is injured after a shootout with a suspect in the southwest valley, according to authorities. The suspect, who was reportedly armed with an assault rifle, was shot and killed in the incident in the 8300 block of Feather Duster Court, near Durango Drive and Patrick Lane.

Who do you think the merit sergeants are? They were identified by former Superintendent Terry Hilliard a few years ago when he was faced with the dismal showing by minorities on a prior sergeants promotional list. Hilliard stated to the news media that the department would devise a way to make the promotional process equitable. I almost pissed in my pants listening to him trying to pronounce "equitable". With rare exception, nearly all of the minority sergeants are meritorious. The white sergeants will have political connections or were lap dogs for some exempt member. Its pathetic, and the reason the department is a mess. But this is Chicago, not Glenview, Park Ridge, Madison, Wi. etc.

Since when do we reward people with a promotion for just studying hard? You might have studied hard and ranked somewhere south of eighteen-hundred on the sergeants list. So now the white males and females ranking beyond 323 are now piddling because the crown prince of mediocracy in the mayors office has directed the department to promote under-performing blacks and hispanics to ensure racial parity in the supervisory ranks.

Oh, and lets not forget the red herrings-those connected white males or females who languished in "units" and are thrown into the meritorious mix confuse the politically inexperienced into not seeing this for what it is-raced based promotion. They can give you all the stripes they want, it doesn't change what you are, an under-performer who relies on quotas to get a pay raise.

80% of the upcoming Sgt. exam is all new. So, study your new orders and think like a sgt, not like a policeman. But, if you are a real policeman, don't treat your working police like shit, ie " The dickman" in 020. What a waste, if we make more like him, we should all think about going postal. Remember Sgt's are to help and protect the patrolman, not to be your tool for self esteem and get your rocks off by trying to fuck with working police. No one gets points for being a shitbird, you get points by being someone that P.O.'s can count on and trust that you won't jam them up for making a small mistake.That makes a good sergeant.
But I heard from P.O.'s that you were never the real police, so I can see your problem. Grow up and trust the people who work for you and stop being scared, grow some balls!!!

Hate to ruin your "theory," but I am a M/2 who actually got promoted because I SCORED WELL ENOUGH on the test. I'm not here defending the way the promotion process is administered, but until someone can actually find a better way to determine who gets promoted and who doesn't, it is what we have to deal with. If you want the pay raise, either come up with a solution to the obvious problem - then find some way to convince the "powers that be" that it is, in fact, a better plan - or just learn the orders and hope you can score high enough to avoid the political hand that is dealt to us. I scored well - I got lucky. I hope you do to.

Not totally sure where you're going with that, but it sounds like the previous poster was commenting on the corruption of the promotion process, not individual goofs like the one you refer to.

A good guy can slip in meritoriously, and a moron can make it by score. But the test is the only objective measure of required knowledge; or do you simply favor a patronage system like Streets and Sanitation. Thre are no meritorious physicians, lawyers or airline pilots. And if there were I'd pray I don't get sick, get sued, or travel abroad.

The only point I was trying to make, is that until another process is put into place, this is what we have to deal with. I'm the first one to agree that the process is seriously flawed, but until it is changed, if someone wants the promotion bad enough - and they don't have a politician on their speed dial - all you can do is study what is thrown at you. Is it wrong that if you score #400 on the list that you don't get made, while someone else who didn't even take the second part is now a Sgt.? Of course it is.

Its actually "FYI" that was hard to interpret. I concur with you completely. I dont care if you're white, yellow, brown, or zebra stripped. I'm not trying to beat a dead horse,however,the only equitable way to promote is by rank order based upon score. I know, I know, insiders having knowledge of the test beforehand. Thats a tough one to crack, however, the meritorious promotion policy is the most in your face legitamized corruption in the recent history of the department.

2/03/2006 11:07:00 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

A better system for promotion. O.K. here we go- The first part of the test, the only part that is legitimate should count in your ranking. Why doesn't it count? Because it is a legitimate test. The should be a record of how many felony arrests you've made. The department keeps records (if we find out you've falsified your record we throw you jail, just like filing a false police report). Have you made a felony arrest? If not, then your not even allowed to take the fucking test. How is that? is that brillant or what? It took me 10 seconds to think that miraculous crap up. The meritorious bothers me, but the supposedly legitimate part really gives me a belly laugh. A 10 year old could come up with a more legitamite system.
I just fucking with you. Daley will allow a legitimate promotional system as soon as his new staff vetts out the corruption at city hall. As soon as he starts hiring people who are not members of the Democratic party.
