Police Memorial Week Planning

It's never to early to get your reservations and arrangements set up for Police Week 2007. From an e-mailer of ours:
  • Washington DC Police Memorial Trip - Informational Get Together
  • When: Wednesday 28 Mar 07 1830 hours
  • Where: Dugan's on Halsted 128 S. Halsted
  • Everyone planning on attending this year's Police Memorial Service in Washington is invited to join us for a casual gathering at Dugan's. We'll have information available regarding things to do in DC, Maps, informative web sites, etc. Hopefully any questions you have about the trip will be answered. It's also a great chance to meet other memebers who will join us in honoring our brothers and sisters who made the ultimate sacrifice.
  • BYOB (Buy your own Beer)
Further information can be found by e-mailing

See you at Dugan's. Or Washington. Or both.

Anyone know the whole story of why the NYPD officers had to "surrender" from the Nov. 25 bar shooting? I thought that they were found justified in the shoot?

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Two detectives from the New York City Police Department have been indicted on manslaughter charges in the shooting death of an unarmed black man on his wedding day, the Queens District Attorney said on Monday.

A third officer has been indicted for reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor, District Attorney Richard Brown said.

All three officers surrendered to internal affairs investigators Monday morning and are expected to be arraigned this afternoon, Brown said.

Detective Michael Oliver, who allegedly fired 31 shots and reloaded, is to be charged with manslaughter and assault, Brown said. Detective Gescard Isnora, who allegedly fired 11 times, faces the same charges, which carry a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison.

Detective Marc Cooper, who allegedly fired four shots, is to be charged with reckless endangerment, which carries a maximum one-year sentence.

If you are planning on attending the St. Jude Parade or the Memorial in D.C., would you mind getting you Reefers and Blouses cleaned and pressed. Some of you look like you just rolled out of bed and it's very embarrassing to the P.O.s who know how to present themselves. Also to the ones who have gained about 150 or 200 pounds since the academy, can you get your stuff tailored so it looks like it fits you and that your not trying to stuff 10 pounds of sausage into a 5 pound casing. Thank you.

Hera's an article on the hijacking of blogs and implanting trojans on them. Sounds like that is what happened to the rookie site.

Thanks SCC for posting the info on D.C.

The Solorio family and all those others honored this year 'deserve' to see row upon row of Chicago Police Officers in attendance, proof of our commitment to Never Let Them Walk Alone!

If you want information on Springfield Memorial go to Illinois Concerns Of Police Survivors (google it)

Also, the trooper's memorial get together has changed locations. It's on the State fair grounds this year. Google Illinois State Trooper Lodge 41 for that information.

Looking back 20+ years when I came on this job, I now must say that those Jewish tailors on Wabash St. and the others on Roosevelt Rd. knew exactly what they were doing (as much as I hate to admit) when they made me buy my uniforms a couple of sizes too large. Now, everything is a bit snug, but it's still wearable and not offensive. And knowing I'll be pulling the pin in a few years, NO way would I consider investing in a full set of new threads. But I hope everyone makes it to St. Judes. Remember, this is for the Gold Star families.

Great Idea scc. Having a get together to give everybody interested in going to Washington. For those first timers, having all the ins and out for them is a welcome idea. Hope Washington trip has a good turn out.

I go to Springfield "every" year. It's like pulling teeth to try to get CPD to go. I see the same approx 50-60 cpd guys n gals each year. It's a whoppn' 2-1/2 drive but hardly anybody goes. If you go for the festivities the day before and then go to the church and then the memorial the next day, all you have to commit for the whole trip including travel time to and from is a mere 28 hours of your time. It's not asking much to honor those fellow brothers/sisters that have died.

What also sucks is all the powers that be here in the dept only send 2, thats right 2 - Chicago Police Marked Police Cars. We are this huge city with all these police officers but we only send 2 marked units to represent our department.
If anybody from headquarters reads this, besides the two marked fords, how about sending down the hummer, one of the suv's, one of the new mini chevy cars, one of the concept cars. Mix it up and be proud our dept. I think everybody there would enjoy to see the many different police cars we have.

The couple old cha vans don't count because they look like shit, inside and out, they only go down the day of and they don't participate in the long procession through town from the fair grounds to the church and then from the church to downtown springfield.

IF you're going to DC JUST to party....Do us all a favor. STAY HOME.
Never forget the REAL reason why we're there!
I hope you don’t embarrass everyone else.
Signed, ..."Everybody Else!"
