Oh, and by the Way

If you have any tips that the Inspector General can use:
  • The new hotline number, 866-IG-TIPLINE (448-4754), will be staffed Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for those who don't have the freedom to spill the beans during work hours. Tipsters can also dump their dirt on the Internet at If they don't want to be identified, they won't be, thanks to a "third party host server" that keeps encrypted messages secure.
But then they ruin the whole effect with this:
  • But tipsters are encouraged to leave contact information because follow-up conversations can only help investigators strike pay dirt.
We're not sure what they are looking for. The site says corruption , fraud and misconduct. It doesn't say anything about cronyism, nepotism or favoritism, but we figure we're going to report about 20 bosses and underlings on Monday morning, all anonymously, just so the corruption fighters can start off their week feeling like they are making a difference.

Thanks Crimefile you police-hating stroke for posting the below link. I know for a fact that IAD is now investigating it.

Way to go to you too SCC. Your blog is really becoming a great place to rat out and fuck over other coppers.

The Inspector General office does not have jurisdiction over the police department. Do your homework before you decide to write a "post". Dime-dropping would have to start with IAD. Coppers watching coppers - good luck making any significant changes.

I got a link to the Stapleton site from a non-police source.

You can google SURVIVOR AUDITION and get there directly.

I thought it was cute and that's why I posted it.

When I was on the job there were no general orders about cameras in squad cars and video cameras did not yet exist. People were using 16 MM film.

Perhaps Stapleton submitted paperwork and got permission? I certanly did not intend harm. Some of the comments from fellow coppers about Stapleton after I gave the link were brutal.

I've found that too many working cops vising the SSC blog are real police-haters as they stab each other in the back.

FYI the writing,producing and camera work on that video was first rate. Stapleton could do just fine in entertaiment as an actor anytime.

It may be fair game to take shots at crappy bosses on the job but think it's not very cop like for you guys to snipe at each other.

I'd like to think that every cop who posts here would respond to anyone's 10-1.

Remember you post crap on the internet at your own risk. These things can sometimes bite you on the butt.

Everyday careers are ending over postings. Cops, reporters, teachers have all been in the soup. Free speech is not as free as we'd like to believe.

Stapleton used to work for me when he was a new policeman and he is a bit of a goof but I never thought him stupid. Hope that he did get permission to use the squad and be in uniform for his audition tape. However, I can't imagine anyone in authority giving him permission and I expect that it would have to come from the Chief of Patrol's Office or higher. As for those of you who think that anonymous complaints to the IG won't go anywhere, you're wrong. The IG won't investigate them but they get forwarded to IAD for investigation and they will be investigated. I know because I had it happen to me based upon an anonymous allegation left on voicemail for the prior IG. Stapleton should watch his back because this is exactly the kind of thing that IAD will investigate even if he got prior permission because someone may object to the content of his tape.

Technically the IG's office DOES have jurisdiction over the police department....the fire department too. If you don't believe me, read the ordinance that established the office.

But...the IG refers police and fire matters to their respective IAD's.

DICKMAN isn't a name it's what he does. Ask him sometime about the time he "misplaced" his radio when he was a play detective at Area 4 (I guess he has west side time now). He wanted to report himself without looking for it. Guys went out looking for it and found it, even though he was he was DICKMAN. He should have learned a lesson about helping people out.

IAD does not investigate anonymous complaints unless they are criminal in nature, Sarge! You should know that.

Being a stooge isn't criminal. A complainant's name would have to be attached to an investigation into this particular buffoonery. Do you really think IAD goes out and LOOKS for more work, especially of this type?!?!?!

With all the bitching and ratting out other coppers that consumes this board, you would think that SCC is none other than - (drumroll, please) King Richie. You fuckin' morons can't even have an intelligent constructive conversation without crying about something. What a bunch of fucking tools!!!!!!!!!!!!
Clue #1 - If you hate the job - quit!
Clue #2 - If you don't want to live in the city - move or do something about it other than whining about FOP not doing anything. Post your name and your plan to eliminate residency. Not that hard, morons.
Clue #3 - Just like the general p(c)opulation, the loudest complainers are the ones that contribute the least.
Clue #4 - If you complain about St. Judes, don't go. The march isn't for you, anyway. Probably would interfere with your therapy.

I'm sure they got this idea from our aldecreatures. This shit just doesn't happen in Chicago. The arrogance of Politicians is amazing.

Actually it's Lt., and this wouldn't be an anonymous complaint, the complainant would be either be ADS Kirby or the Lt in charge of Special Investigations and the allegation would be bringing discredit upon the department and misuse of department equipment. This isn't in anyway an anonymous allegation because there is the video which clearly shows the officer in uniform, his star and and squadcar and give the impression that he is on-duty while this filming is being done. If you don't believe me, I suggest you call IAD yourself and run it by someone as a hypothetical.

Hey, go ahead and tell the city about all the corruption. This way they can keep it under wraps and do everything to fix it and hide it from the feds.

Don't tell the city about their wrongdoings. Tell the feds. Let the feds investigate.

Two hour lunches - that would be a long day for them. The tours they love begin with role call, a trip to 018 and a few numbers from the ladies and back in time for check off.

Sounds like Renee aka LeoMemorial aka Anonymous is making threats again. . . she doesn't belong on this board to begin with and then she adapts a nickname that makes it sound like she's a fundraiser or planner for the police memorial for the CPD while all the time she's a fake and a liar who meddles in the business of this department. Last time around she was trying to be sexy and seduce several of the officers, now she's just trying to con folks into thinking she really cares. Please, Renee get a life and meanwhile look up the definition of cyberstalking. Goof

Perhaps you can give the shrinks a leg up on your paranoia and relentless obsession with Ms. Renee Lee Greco. A possible recovery will require much more than mere medication.

Great sign at the St. Jude's March, Ms. Greco.
