Seatbelt Missions Work!

  • Police are unsure Saturday morning why the 27-year-old offender ran after being pulled over for a traffic stop for a routine seatbelt check near Birchwood and Damen Avenues about 11 p.m., according to Rogers Park District Capt. Howard Denk.

    The offender ran from police and forced his way into a third floor apartment on the 7400 block of N. Sealy Ave., where he fell out of the window, Denk said.

Fell out the window trying to escape a seatbelt mission. Priceless.

off topic but I want to be heard


I assume that some of the allegations made agaisnt SOS guys are based on fact and that the States Attorney will be able to prove his case.

If not, of course the following Does Not Apply

What does being told at roll call to go out and make arrests have to do with pillaging?

I could see MAYBE making some warrantless searches, I could see it, NOT condone it.
IF the proceeds were inventoried and arrests were made and creatively justified on paper.

AND court appearences were properly attended.

I cant condone it, I would advise against it, but I can understand it

But doing some of the things these guys are ALLEGED to have done, cannot and should not be confused with legitmate police work.

If they did this stuff, then they are worse than the Englewood guys and should spend a looooong time away at college ala Medzjanowski.

Sorry but thats how I feel about guys who make the rest of us look bad.

The guy who jumped from the window probably thought the prostitution unit was conducting the seat bealt mission and he wanted to keep his cash he worked all week for. He knows what it cost him last time he was "stopped" by them and told the arresting officers, It would of been cheaper to kill him.

And let me guess... after he made the cops cahse him, after he breaks into a 3rd floor residence and jumps from a window... he was only charged with a M.C.C. or misdemeanor charge.

I hope they found a few felonies to charge this guy with and not just blew it off.

Anbody know what charges if any he was charged with?

PS: I am sure somewhere during the chase he disposed of either a firearm or narcotics.

I heard of other coppers parachuting on an arrest report but never heard of an offender jumping on the arresting officers.

everybody (I mean everyone) knows that seatbelt missions "work", that they make the communities safer, that they remove hardened criminals off of the streets, that they raise and improve the morale of the officers who participate, that the missions themselves do not interfere with the efficient delivery of police services to the public, i.e., taking cars out of service does not impact on waiting calls for service. That fantasy strikes me just as the fantasy of the efficiency of the "cameras" mounted on poles all across the city. What jokes they are.....what a fraud the CPD brass are when they fool themselves as to the effectiveness (ineffectiveness) of the cameras, sealbelt missions....and how about the "outdoor roll calls", even more of an insult. The CPD brass are efficient at only one thing: hanging on to each other, while the rest of the Department needs intelligent and competent leadership.

I knew a few old Public Housing Unit guys from the late 80's, early 90's that regularly lost guys who "jumped" out windows...heh heh heh. It took a while, but eventually the shitheads stopped running from them. I guess a night in lockup is better than becoming a projectile from the 10th floor.

Does IAD investigate exempts who drive family and friends around in the City car on Saturday night's in Edison Park? Cause if you think we don't notice that shit when we see it, you are wrong BOSS!

Kind of a slap in the face, while the rest of us poor slobs are filling the tank twice a week out of pocket!

Hey 10:12, I bet if you were made exempt tomorrow, you would take it, and I'm sure you would park the company car, except to and from work. NOT! Shut the F&$# up you jealous bitch and go back to your miserable little existence thinking of ways to get out of work. That's what's wrong with this job, to many people worrying about everyone else, take care of business at home, I'm sure you could use some housekeeping. Comprende? And no, I'm not exempt, yet! LMAO

and speaking about frauds, how about the Area gun teams going after citizens who happen to be gun collectors, b.s. their way into their homes, seizing their guns, and the weekly DOC meeting says..."Hey, good job!" Did anybody notice?: 1) there are an estimated 300 million firearms (handguns, rifles, etc.) in the hands of Americans; 2) 48 of the 50 states in America allow some sort of "concealed carry" for their citizens; the only two that do not, Wisconsin and ILLINOIS; so, who is behind (aside from having one of the most corrupt municipal/state governments over the years)? The CPD brass...leading from behind...

Speaking of police vehicles, I have a good friend in SOS, not one of the four, who told me there are going to be many changes, starting with uniforms and vehicles. Everyone will be in uniform, and all unmarked cars will be changed for marked cars. He said the Superintendent was at a late Roll call on Friday night stating, SOS will not be disbanded. So, this would make me wonder, if a scandal does come about in porstitution do you think they will put them all in uniform and take their unmarked cars away? If so...what would they do with all these unmarked cars?? Hey...maybe if there was another scandal in traffic, they could take all the unmarked cars from vice and give them to the traffic unit, and put them in plain clothes...Hey, that would never work.... It is harder being a boss than I thought it would be....Unless....maybe give all marked cars to exempt... I understand they need them in case they are called in for some reason...and what better way to get to the place you are going but in a marked car, sirens and lights flashing.... I have to get some sleep....having to think like a boss on this job is much harder than I thought it was.... One last thought, my friend in SOS said if you have an application in there now....you may want to think long and hard about if....if called... be careful out there..

TO 9/09/2006 08:05:53 PM:

That is the most assinine, narrow-minded comment I have heard. If you have trust issues with us then call your alderman next time you need help. I'm sure he'll rush right over.

This is what happens when ignorant self-absorded jagoffs can't use the brain God gave them to make rational thoughts but to just generalize an entire department for the errors in judgement and the misgivings of a handfull of officers. But it's easier to critize everyone then just the few who screwed up.

I for one am still proud to be.

Keep the faith and stay safe.

This incident the other night reminded me of something similiar that happened about 10 years ago while I was in 024. Of course, not from a seat-belt mission though.

During a foot pursuit, a person ran into a bldg. and jumped from a window, breaking both legs.

I remember thinking...what a complete moron.

Get the exempt's license plate, document the times in edison park, and anonymously call IAD. The exempt is stealing. Hopefully, IAD has the balls to do the right thing.

So SOS goes in uniform and marked cars, big deal. I remember the flying squads, they were in uniform with marked cars. All they did was take their beat tags off and put black tape over their name tags. Then they would listen for jobs on the zone, beat you there, beat up everyone then leave. When you got there everyone was bloody and the house was a wreck. A week later you would get a CR# but it was not sustained because they could not pick you out and gave different descriptions of the Officers.

Several years ago working Tact in 003 we did a reverse in the low end. Plain clothes CPD posing as the dope boys led the buyers up to the 3rd floor vacant apartment then arrested for Attempt Possession. Knucklehead in flex cuffs jumps out the window head first and breaks his legs. I still remember the bone protruding from his leg....PRICELESS.

When we did outdoor roll calls on MIDNIGHTS, we made as much noise as we could. We came in with roof lights, air horns, P.A. announcements and radios turned up loud. Some people would come to their doors and we would talk to them. I am sure that they felt safer for our doing that. After all, why do an outdoor roll call if the neighborhood sleeps through it.

A recent order just reiterated that exempts are on-duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That, my Edison Park living PO, is the stamp of approval for using the City car for personal business. IAD wouldn't care because it's not a violation of policy. As long as the operator isn't DUI or otherwise violates Dept rules, it's "good to go" as the commercial says. No stealing involved. "Non-exempt take-home cars" is a different matter (e.g.: Tact Lts, OCD units, etc.)

the seat belt mission first started in cpd by SoS Lt. J.B., believe or not, we use to get alot of guns this way and the upper brass heard about the way we were getting them and instituted this for the rest of the city...... this is the truth!!!!

This dept has no business conducting "outdoor" roll calls. Roll calls should be in enclosed private areas, such as a DISTRICT ROLL CALL room, without the dog and pony show exhibition for every mope to see witness.

As far as seat belts are concerned, it's law, and an officer should just be able to write a driver up if he/she sees someone driving w/o a belt. Same goes for the child restraints. These are minor offenses and we shouldn't have to waste our time and manpower on such organized "missions".

Seatbelt missions are nothing more than REVENUE RAISING EFFORTS no matter what the exempts say. Oh, they will point to the OCCASIONAL arrest that results from one of them to prove what a valuable tool they are in the war on crime. Same thing with reverse stings. What is accomplished other than locking up some crack head or suburbanite and seizing his car? We raise money for daley, nothing else.
Outdoor rollcalls? That has to be one of the most STUPID things I've ever seen on this job. They are ONE of the things that make of a laughing stock in the law enforcement world. When I encounter Officers from other parts of the country and we discuss the job, I mention outdoor rollcalls. At first they think I'm kidding and they don't believe me. When they realize that I'm dead serious, they shake their heads and laugh and hope that their bosses don't get wind of it. The sad thing is that outdoor rollcalls are here to stay. The community loves them and as we all know, it's a big chance for them to show others in the community that they have the power to get the Police Dept. to do what they want. Imagine if you were a community activist and you could get a bunch of coppers to stand at attention on a street corner for the sole purpose of boosting your standing in the community. What a power trip!
All of these things are just SOME of the things the current crop of bosses have done to ruin this job.

I NEVER thought that I'd say this but I can't wait to retire. And it's because of things like outdoor rollcalls,seatbelt missions,POD missions reverse stings,etc., etc. They have absolutely NOTHING to do with police work but yet we are forced to do them. The idiots that thought them up should be ashaned of themselves and not be allowed to call themselves Police Officers.

Would that exempt jump into police action if he happened upon a crime in progress with his family in tow while driving in his exempt squad? I think not and my guess is that he would not be reprimanded for it either.

EXEMPTS NEED THEIR FREE CARS:

Can anyone honestly remember being on a crime scene where it was really important to get hold of an off duty exempt? What bullshit.
When exempts arrive at an area all they do is drink all the coffee (without paying of course) and tie up all the phones. And if a round table is involved we are subjected to these morons playing to each other asking questions a 6 month rookie would consider stupid. Exempts, keep your cars but please stay home or at the bar and away from actual criminal stuff. You never help and might hurt.
