100 IOD's?

Someone in the comments section is claiming over 100 IOD reports were filled out by Area 5 Detectives for exposure to possibly toxic mold and such during the replacement of the ceiling tiles there. Are they serious? Who's got info?

Yes it is true... Being an Area Five Detective, everyone is encouraged to complete an IOD form in relation to the black mold that was found under the ceiling tiles. The place is a serious health hazard..

If it is true then i applaud them. I hope the city gets a clue and realizes that they can't treat everybody like bad step-children who they can walk all over whenever they wish.

i hope its true. file those iod's boys..
these work conditions we deal with is utterly ridiculous. roaches, shit on the stall walls, no soap, garbage cans never being emptied with flys and stank coming from them. mold and mildew more common than you think. bird shit in the hallways. stinky water coming from the fountain. dust over 1/2 thick on top of lockers, cabinets, computers, desks, etc. the city hires these fucking dogs as custodians who do the bare minimum. i would love to see the way they live at home. the bosses in the station don't do shit about it either. you raise your hand, make a complaint about the work conditions and the boss seeks revenge on your ass. same goes for our bullshit radios, computers and cars. fucking dept is a joke...

They are not going to fix the roof. They put pans between the ceiling tiles and the roof. During rain storms the janitors will empty the pans. Some city,eh????

The janitors are not the problem. Its that useless Tom and the rest of those city building engineers at area 5. They all hide in their basement office smoking cigs and watching TV all day. That Tom is always taking building supplies out to his van for personal use. Oh, ya a great city job.....

You think the city gives a shit about working coppers???
Little known fact, before SWAT moved into Area 4 range, the range was closed for a while while the city decided what to do with a 55 gallon drum of liquid, which according to MSDS has been banned from use since shortly after the Vienam War. Some sort of herbicide. In doing research, some coppers were told that EPA would immediately fine the city if it was found/reported and clean up companies would charge somewhere in the neighborhood of 50K to "clean" it up.
What happened... Some poor city worker (streets and san) came in very non-chalant and removed it (after a long and heated debate with city hall), to where, noone but the schmuck and his boss knows.

You're probably the same bitch that catches a cold and hits the medical for three weeks.

Jag sack!

P.S. No one has gone IOD because of this. It's just to make this fucked up city aware of these shitty conditions.

that building was built with contracts and kick backs to city hall! obviously it was not built properly, as contractors cut back so they can pay off! When is daley and his top people going to be charged and sent to prison?

Try the female locker room in the basement. During the time I work in the 25th dist also area 5 a crew of city workers came in to clean the vents the worker opened the vents in the ceiling he then stated to me oh shit I'm not messing with this, he told me there was black mold throughout the heating and cooling system vents. year was 2000. Also the female lockup in the 19th dist. City pays the state inspector to clear the lockups. never even checks them out.

Your a complete fucking moron if you think complaining about a health issue makes you a crybaby. You sir are a lemming. The city feeds you a shit sandwhich and you say, boy thats tasty. When your retired and dying of some funky shit the city was responsible for will you seek restitution then? Do you honestly believe the city has your best interest in mind?

When the officer in ARS had TB ( he died from it) the C/O made sure that everyone who might have had contact with him did an IOD and arranged to have the board of health come out to do testing for all CPD and 311 civilians that wanted it. No one else was infected. No one paniced because it was taken care of properly

It is true..Enter A/5 through the South (employee) doors and in the lobby there is a pallet of new ceiling tiles. Seems they have been working feverously to get them damaged ones replaced, so they can say "what mold problem?"

The Detectives upstairs think they have it bad. Go to the basement locker rooms where it is about 100 degrees and alway sticks like shit from the overflowing toilets.

Oh yeah..and what about this patronage hack of a building engineer who walks around like "Snyder" the building superintendant from that 1970's T.V. sitcom. This puke even wears the 3 piece-suit "vest" only and has a keyring with at least 100 keys on it, you can hear him every time he thinks he is "sneaking" out of the building (which he does about 10 times a night).

Anyone been to TARA training at Near North High School? Make sure you shake out your coats -- the place is infested with mice and roaches.

The city has tried to come in twice to change the ceiling tiles on the main floor and have been chased out both times. Exposure to mold can cause respirtory problems.
The workers have masks specially designed for mold removal and the Dets working up there get nothing. We're supposed to work there while this shit falls from the ceiling.

If you work at A/5 and take the mold scare seriously, then go to a doctor and get tested. If you test pos. for infection, then call OSHA and your lawyer. see, problem solved. No need to complain here, just to inform others.

Area 5 is undergoing some bandaid treatment for the humpback fly infestation and the toxic mold problem. New ceiling tiles are being installed during the daytime. The workers who are installing the tiles wear masks. The detectives are not provided this luxury. There is alot of debri flying in the air and laying on the ground. Our union has protested vehimently to no avail, sounds similar to contract negotiations. I am spitting blood and have a strong cough. I don't think I'll last much longer. The medical section told me that I have to prove that this is caused by the toxic mold and not a pre-existing condition. I think I'm dying now! Farewell city and my beloved union. May God have mercy on you for I will not. In my ghostly form I am coming back in the form of Johnny Cochrane. The department will promote me over and over until I reach the pinnacle of my life. My salary will be substantial enough for me to afford a vacation home so I can spend alot of time away from this city. I will have a nice office without insect infestations and mold problems. I will have a city car to take home so that I can save on maintenance and gas costs. I will have a blackberry which will save me money on cell phones or pagers. Finally, I will tell everyone that I made it legit because I studied and I am smart. What a life? Believe it or not it does happen.
