Congrats to Art Para. You've never yet passed a promotional exam high enough to get a legit advancement, yet there you are near the top of the Department. Incredible. How the fuck do you get 4 bites at the "merit" apple? You are truly an amazing piece of garbage.

I have met PARA and can honestly say he is the dumbest person I have met above the rank of sergeant.

I'd love to know what his alleged qualifications are that the Department could justify his future promotion to the rank of Captain.

Unbelievable!!!!! Remember, its all legit. Study hard for that promotional exam.

I was fortunate to make sergeant and work with Cindy Pilipuf in 015. I can honestly say she is a class act and the real police.

Congratulations, Cindy!!! You deserve it.

Forlenza was a do nothing Sesk SGT in 8 who was doing the W/C and was friends with Harry the Hat. Merit was used to make her a LT, on what accord??? Then an inspector - thank you Harry the Hat - and now a CPT???? WTF!!!

Leo how can one man kiss SO much ass...? Is it that possible? Really, when will your wife be promoted next?

The only good one that I know on this list is Graeber...he was a worker.

Art Para was one of the Captains who was busted down to Lt. for not getting the required college. He thought his LAPA clout could keep him there without the college. He was wrong and got busted down to LT. when he missed the deadline. He apparently got smart and got the required hours. Good move. LAPA is still strong.

I strenuously object to those of you who describe Parra as a moron (IQ of 80 or less).

I'll have you know that Art scored an 81 on the Stanford-Binet.

Not everyone can have the average IQ of 100. Half the adult U.S. population has a double-digit IQ.

Are you insinuating that most of the American people are fucking nitwits? Obviously the American public, particularly Chicagoans, are brilliant. Just look at election results.

Stop discriminating against the intellectually-challenged. Your insensitivity is unconscionable.

Made Sgt. with Pilipuf in '97. She's good people, and has always been a fair, respected boss. Good luck to you! You're a credit to the job, and the women on this job who only want to work hard and get the same accolades as their male counterparts for good work. I wish you all the successes (and promotions) you get thrown your way!

Ken Angarone and I were Master's Degree students together. Graeber is top shelf as well. Glad to see them both move up and onwards (although from what I understand, Angarone will move up NOW, and Graeber will receive the training, and move up later).
Penelope Trahanas was part of our Sgt. class of '97. Good people too. Way to go, Penny! I'm proud of you! Don't forget us little people as you guys move up the ladder!
Glad to see Jimmy O'D make it also.
Young, but experienced. He's done a good job as Tact Lt. in 006. Congrats! You've earned it as well!
Even though there are some naysayers here on the blog with regard to Leo Schmitz, he's a good guy as well. He's done a more than decent job as the Area 4 Gun & Gang team Lt. His Latin King Task force has probably done the most work this decade of actually penetrating the largest latin gang in the state. Good warrants,great seizures. Yes, his wife is a Lt. also. Get over it, he'll be wearing double bars soon, and he's been the working police, even when he was a Sgt. in Area 5. I know he's ruffled some feathers of some dogs there, and that's as it should be. There are so few detectives, that the room just isn't there for some to decide to just sit in the office and work a case over the phone, only making arrests if and when they can talk some joker into turning himself in to the desk. Good luck to all who made it, even those with less than stellar reputations. You now have a chance to turn all that around, should you care to.

As for B.F., think what you will, but I know for sure she was promoted to lieutenant legit. I know what her score was and she made lt. on her own.

The reason they would leave a unit and go to a district is just like Steele retiring at a Presidents pension oppose to a Commisioner's pension. These people have one foot out the door and are just being taken care of so they can have that extra $1,000's a year added to their pension. Just look at the average Commander, once promoted they do an average of 4yrs. and mandatory retirement comes so that spot can be given to the next connected anointed one.

Do you actually think they would keep her on the desk if they had a choice, she is as big a pain in the ass to the Capt and Lt as she is to you. But at least they have called her on her shit.

Cline has been making all his command promotions from Captain for the most part, most of those on the list have aspirations of going higher, or were told to put in for it, so they must know they have something coming; plus, they want to go out with a Captains pension, not hard to figure out.

I think it's a hell of a lot more than a "slight Bump in Pay". And I think we would all agree as to why would any boss at 543 would leave.

Here's some insight on that:

Ok, on the real tip? The First Deputy is leaving and has taken care of just about all of his Pals (or whatever you call them). Lucky for Penelope, it has been again and again. Once the First Deputy is gone, she'd be gone, as she's made all kinds of enemies there and needless to say, he would be unable to protect her/take care of her. Now she's made Capt. and the sad thing for her is, and to our knowledge, there's no Capt's sitting pretty at HQ. Capt. Phelan (one of the old Capts) was the last one, and who retired out of HQ Patrol Div. So, unless she has any favors/wishes left in that "Jeanie of the Lamp" of hers, she'll have to go to a District. District? "Danger Will Robinson - Danger!" This Monster is for real and coming to a District near you!

The end of an era is close. I would guess that Phil placed Alberta Raymond on the Capt's list at the request of Dana Starks or that rat Williams. Either way, it will draw a lot of attention away from his son being driven up through the ranks at each possible step for promotion. Matt may be a decent guy, but he'll seem like a rocket scientist standing next to some of the jackasses we're going to have running the show in the next few years.

White people arent hating
Theyre just telling it like it is.

There are many fine Hispanics on the job who are bright, educated clean neat honest and hard working.

They are forced to stay P.O.'s because of the bullshit system that promotes those of all races who aren't, bright, educated, clean neat honest and hard woking.

El Capitan Parra just aint one of tem

I can think of many Hispanics with whom Ive worked who are very qualified yet go unrewarded. I bet you can too. Wouldnt you rather have one of the qualified ones representing the Hispanos on the job?

Can you help me out here..???

I am on Furlo, so I did not get to see the order.

Is John Graeber from 189 going to be a CPT? Or is he waiting until the next spot opens??

Seems to be conflicting posts....and I do not come back until early next year.

Thanks.

NO ONE PERSON IS BITTER HERE. WHY SAY "BITTER"? WE ALL KNOW AND HAVE COME TO REALIZE HOW PROMOTIONS ARE HANDED DOWN. AS FAR AS THESE PROMOTIONAL EXAMS ARE ADMINISTERED WITHIN THIS DEPARTMENT, I HATE TO BE THE ONE TO TELL YOU - OUR CITY ISN'T EXACTLY USED AS THE BENCHMARK FOR POLICE TESTING AND STANDARDS. SO, JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT REGARDING THIS CUT-THROAT WOMAN. IN YOUR HASTE TO "SUCK ASS" FOR PENELOPE, YOUR FORGOT TO MENTION JUST ONE IMPORTANT FACT. THERE IS NO "TESTING WELL" TO GET INTO THE SPECIALIZED UNITS THAT SHE HAS LANDED IN. NICE TRY.

Sorry, but I just don't get the Trahanas bashing on here. She's been a great boss as far as I'm concerned and as far as her making enemies, you may be one of the very few, but I know for a fact that she is generally well liked throughout headquarters. Just more jealous whining. I can't speak for her street experienece, or alleged lack there of, but I can tell you that she takes care of her people and is generally pleasant to deal with. Unlike so many other ego maniacs on this job, from the bottom up!

Anyway, that's been my experience. Sorry if yours differs.

Bay might have been a dork in 014(or maybe he wasn't in on the take!) But he was a good supervisor as a LT in 019.

With all due respect, Bay was not a dork. No disrespect to you or Bay. As a matter of fact he was a great guy, a traffic guy who came in with good sh!t just because of all of his traffic stops. If he got a gun or dope he would ask a question if he was not sure. In conclusion, Roger Bay is a class act!!

Lewis may have been a joke at one time but not anymore. You have to put in a lot of time to complete the workload. That’s time away from you family. I hear this garbage from many officers who have NO degree and are to lazy to go back to get it. The city pays FULL BOAT as long as you get the 'A' - but your still to lazy to finish your bachelors or masters program.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Lets be honest, what is a "real college"? Have you ever seen the video plugs for "Girls Gone Wild"? These are all college kids getting drunk and showing their boobs going to so called “real schools”. Their parents are paying $40,000 a year and the most they learn is how to use a beer bong. Do you really think the classes and work they do in these schools {i.e. Purdue, University of Illinois} is more difficult than Lewis? Do you really think they bust their ass studying?

College itself is bullshit.. It’s all about accreditation. The school with the bigger name means you will be getting a better shot at a better job. If you wind up going to Yale or Harvard like the Bush family (cause you got the cash and clout) you wind up becoming the President. I doubt if Bush could even get straight A's at Lewis College.

So.. the bottom line is you go to a lowly college in Romeoville named Lewis you can become a Captain for the Chicago Police Department.

If you really went to a “real college” what are you doing on this shit job anyway officer?

Captain Penny TRASHanas is just another do nothing "On the Fast Track" piece of garbage shitball who made Det., Sgt., Lt., and now Capt. without having to work the streets. Ask anyone who's worked with her and for her. Specialized units all throughout her career. Did you ever work the streets? Just recently promoted to Lt. now Capt. and was a Sgt. all in Unit 543? Hmmmm - Three Ranks, One Unit? WOW! It's probably Best she doesn't go to a real police unit, this way, the working police won't have to deal with this “Shaky " Cow.

There are only 5 captain vacancies so out of the list of 18 they will only promote 5 or 6 to captain. The rest will be on a waiting list. Parra and Elmer are sure bets for two of the slots. I have worked with Elmer, Denk, Angarone, O'Neil and Gibson and all will be great Captains eventually. My hat is off to them.

7:18-I went to a "real college," and I'm working this job because I enjoy it. If you think it's a "shit job," leave. I worked with plenty of good police, both with and without degrees, however the trend I've seen with those who have good education is more patience. Getting through four years of a school with real academic standards requires (and teaches) patience, if nothing else. Anyway, if you hate this job so much, it's time to look elsewhere-this is not the military, you are free to leave at any time.

Al Nagode was the acting watch commander in 1 and saw someone pull up in a car without a city sticker. Turns out the guy was using a relatives car from the suburbs. Fine, whatever, he wanted to make sure this guy had his vehicle properly licensed, the bigger joke was he had no balls and put it on the central d. supervisor (it was one of her guys) instead of having the balls to say, yeah, I'm the boss here and I want this checked out...what a weasel for sure.

NO, the brotha's and the minista's would go crazy and get the Rev. Jackson to make some noise for Feb.27th.

That is why it is always a white or hispanic. It really should be hispanic, there are no white folks over in the pilsen area, well not yet.

But, shame on Ald. Solis for not telling Richie to get rid of Sodini and put a hispanic over there. Hey, how about Art Parra for Commander.

The reason I work this “shit job” is probably the same reason you work it.. I live in the real world and have a family to support. If I had a choice I would move out of this absolute corrupt garbage of a city and work a great Monday through Friday gig like you could - because your sooo smart and was lucky to afford to go to “a real college”.
