From the comments:
  • Hey S.C.C, tomorrow on change day all A/2 tac teams start the new hours of 2000-0430. Thanks Dep. appreciate going to court on no sleep.
Well, isn't that a volunteer spot? Aren't teams subject to changes in hours, days off, assignments, details and all sorts of things? This has happened the past few summers anyway, though mostly on Fridays and Saturdays.

Our sympathy meter isn't really registering here. Let's check it out:

Nope, we're just not getting a reading at all. It's getting to the point where a beat car is actually a desirable spot. Remember, they can't make you work tact. Frankly, we're still surprised people do.

OFF TOPIC: Im from a Northside Dist and was just told last month that a Lifesaving Award was finally approved. Is it true that I will not actually see the award/ceremony for over a year..I told my SGT she had to be kidding. Does anyone know if this is true and why?

Tact people do not come to this site and complain when you were fucked for getting into trouble and your boss will not save you.

Do not complain about your hours because you are not attending Beat meetings regularly and dont answer call.

Wake up and realize it is not worth it. Wait until the new Supt. and IAD comes shortly.

That, my friends, is what the medical is for.

The "dogs" have done it for years - now you have to wonder, are the "dogs" really "dogs"??

What is the reward for you being a working copper in Area 2? Why not just break a finger, twist an ankle, pull a hamstring or maybe suffer from stress and hit IOD or the medical??

You have no other recourse, other than putting in that To-From requesting you go back to the watch.

Good Luck

By all accounts of the violence in the news in the last few weeks (banks/schools/gangs), does anyone even doubt this will be the deadliest/bloodiest summer in recent years??

Hang onto your hats and grab your ankles because we are in for a ride. It will be comical after a short time too because we are being forced to police in a PC and feminine manner the the city/feds want.

Remember, that every second that passes our world (the U.S.)is progressively getting worse and worse. From our borders to the war, everday that passes is evidence that our country is on monumental slide into oblivion. If you think that is a joke, can you honestly tell yourself that things are getting better. That things in the U.S. will change for the better in 20 years?

Consider this, the days that we are living in are actually good days and we should enjoy them fully because the party isn't going to last forever!! This is not radical thinking but an honest view of where we are heading.

By the end of this year, murders will be back to their normal stats. Aggressive patrols will be a thing of the past. We will become reactionary to the problems in our community due to fear of losing our pensions/freedom.

Finally, Save the paper that will have the info for the police officer's benefit parties for the cops that screwed up because they were too aggressive and the city washed their hands of the officer. No one cares. Why is that still so hard to comprehend. If you want to be a Cowboy, go to Texas or Iraq!! Hee-Haw!!!
Over and out.

I work in a district but not on a Tact team. I did many years ago, and there were some benefits. Those benefits do not seem to exist anymore. There are good guys there and they are trying, but why does anyone want that job, other than the court time? Thats a big reason I guess. But WTF, 8-4 every day? It is a volunteer spot, and they can have it. And soon enough, no one will. Come to the watch, show some of the young guys how to do it, spread that experience around. I respect the tact guys, but you guys are getting jagged off, big time.

I agree. There are absolutely no incentives to work tac anymore. If it is the plainclothes gig, hey take a good look at what the average tac wears. Black vest cover, with name tag and star, some have their award bars,full duty belt, radio blaring, baseball cap. Come on guys and gals, any four year thug on the west and south sides knows your 5-0 and will front you off in a minute. Even though you drive unmarks with M plates, you can try to make it a bit harder for your average felon to know who you are!
There is a reason to be in soft clothes, so use it wisely to your advantage.

Well said SCC. You want to work CD and "bust heads" go ahead. Been there, done that. You are nothing more than a district wide bitch. And as far as the city is concerned, you are their front lines. Going into any assignment without full knowledge is your own fault. Oh, boo-hoo, "I have to work till 0400". Fuck you. Think about that the next time you lock something (yes, some-THING) up for SUB. Cry me a river. And handle your own transports pussies.

Tactical people do it because they want to. It's that simple. Some goofs for sure, but I've also seen some of the best coppers I know come out of tact.
Some Iknow are now supervisors in A/2. Two I know are now W/C's in A/2. One is an ADS. One is a D/C.
Lots of others I know who are now Detectives, and Sgts. throughout the Dept. If the hours don't work for you, move on. No shame in doing that. If you're committed to your team, remain committed. No shame in that either.
Stay safe, guys & gals...it's going to be a rough summer,and we're all going to need each other to get through it.

word around A/2 is that merit milt has lighten up a whooooole lot on his 663 team and his people seem somewhat satisfied. so i figure u either wanted to be in tact and didn't get picked or you got kicked off.

Sorry SCC you are way off on this one. Guys have been trying to get off tac and especially gang teams for months in Area 2. Watch bids come up this period and you will see as much exodus as allowed. When they reverse seniority people onto these teams next year with 3 or more years on the job I guarentee you'll have something to say.

The time to speak up is now. We all know FLOP won't do a thing but say they are fileing a grievance (that grievance being who is elligible for reverse seniority). The city will drag its feat and take over a year to settle.

The decent people of this city especailly in places like 008, 016, and 022 need aggressive coppers taking it to the shitheads. This idiotic approach shows we are in full surrender mode to people who don't and won't pay taxes. Tact and Gangs needs expierenced guys on the streets doing something and getting some kind of reward for it. Permanent day off groups and shitty hours are not the answer.

Stepping up??? Do you believe your own bullshit or are you just stirring the coals? I think your over-glorifying them a wee bit. Nobody went to the tact teams because it was harder work doofus. Patrol gets all the calls, hassles, and paper. They have had it easy for a long time, but it seems like the party might be over. There are some guys that put in a decent days work on the teams, and they will probably be the first to leave. But, for every guy that leaves, there will be several 2-year wonders lined up to jump in and save the city one baggie or 40oz at a time.

Hey 1:37 - F - U.

The Campbell boys are very good coppers and write very good paper!

I would love to compare YOUR paper(if you can even find an arrest) to their's.

Usually cops who write the shit you wrote on here(scc blog) are little pussies with no knowledge, talent or experience...You probably tell stories about writing parkers to other coppers! Go back to your beat car and write a mover and find a RSA with no occupants, then go and eat for free...the only things you can do ....loser!

I met those guys on the job and have known hundreds of guys on this job - good and bad - and those guys are hard workers who get the job done and are talented and aggressive cops. They'll back you up in a second WHETHER YOU'RE a good officer or not.

YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE TO USE THIS SITE TO TALK SHIT ABOUT OTHER GUYS!

Word is that there are major changes in the 5th District on both the tact and the gang teams.

The over his head tact LT is showing that he is a merit hack...removing a good Gang SGT and soon, a good Tact SGT to replace them with more merit hacks.

The SGT's are not too sad - at least they will get set hours again.

More PO's to follow - if the D/C and the Area D/C allow the mass exodus. D/C Skahill gets her wish with the hours change AND a spot closer to being Fat Phil's replacement.

At least she can wear his blouse and reefer

You think that we want to bring in these pimpy ass arrests? we thought the same thing before we got on tac. WE were gonna do real poice work, until we learned the politics. WE are the puppets of the DOC, headquarters and the d/c.
THEY WANT NUMBERS. GET IT?! they dont give a shit what, a cb is a cb and after a while you give it to them because the spot is better than the watch. I dont care what anybody says. There are still percs, your not under the watchful eye of the w/c and if your sgt is cool your life could be wonderful.
We do our job just like you, the dept stops us from using the soft clothes to our best advantage.
Do surveillance, hide in bushes, under porches, takes some time to watch a new house. Good job office, by the way, you had no heads for the last 2 days.

For all you people bitching about the hours for tact in A/2. Go ahead and just leave it doesn't matter you'll be replaced in a second by mmore aggressive officers, and for the guy who keeps complaining about being tired for court you've obviously never worked mid-nights. Stop acting like a bunch of bitch's and do your job

Why because they try to lock people up everyday? This Department was full of those type before this college shit turned this Department into pussies.

---------------------------------
let me clarify---that was overheard in the 008th dist tact office by some 2yr wonder who thinks he's the real deal. the campbells have more arrests (real arrests-not drinkers/pissers/soliciting) than most of the 2 yr wonders on tact in their short careers.

To all of the little cry babies that bitch and moan about clout babies.
SOS is taking applications, it's time to step up and show be the great
police you all claimed to be.

I'm guessing that a lot of people will retort with, that unit sucks or they don't really want people or what ever other lame excuse they can come up with not to apply.

The are waiting with open arms.

Actually, they aren't. The plan is to wait till all the trials are over and then they will shut it down, sort and swat wil fall under TRU. Most of the people have bailed out with more every period. If you think about it it's a no brainer, who in their right mind would go there? nobody there will ever get a fair shake in court or with the states attorney. It's a shame, there were some good guys over there, you can thank finnegan and crew for all this.......

Bravo 1208, I agree. The same goes for me. If you don't like it, go back to the watch. We forget sometimes how shi**y it is to answer 90 domestics while pooches spend hours on a misc x. And when it comes down to it, it depends on the boss, whether its a unit, the watch or tact.

No, they don't, the hair gel police would piss in their prissy pocket pants if they rode 1 hour with the Campbell Boys! The REAL real police don't have any time to mousse their hair. Excuse me girls and ladies, step aside for the best officers on third watch (008). You know the TRU unit may have a spot for you, one of their best "one bag of weed" officers just got detailed to the Bureau of K-9 Management Administrative Metropolitan Force (K.M.A.M.F.) and you would probably fit right in. Oh, I forgot your a dog-ass who enjoys doing nothing and feels embarrased and threatened by seasoned vets with the Eagle-eye who still like to work. Well, you stay salty, Chicago Lawn.

005th District tact Lt. is NOT a merit Lt.; go ask him. He made it on his own score. And even though he left O'Hare at the D/C's request to take over the tact & gang teams in 005, he can't be any worse than that tub of lard he replaced.
Other things noted: BOTH gang Sgts. that were there when the tact Lt. got there were pretty much worthless. Very low stats,
poor leadership from both of them. those two teams had the lowest stats of all the gang teams in Area 2. One bailed on his own (thank God), and the other was holding on by the short hairs. Good riddance. A lot of the crime in 005 could be mopped up by the tact & gang teams over there with the right direction. It can't happen soon enough.

If I were to put my money on which Sgt. in 006 would be meritoriously promoted to Lt., my best guess wouldn't be Milt, it would be Avery.

I'm not one for starting stuff...BUT

I do not even know anything about this guy(LT)/story/district, I WILL preface my comments by stating that fact first.

Here is my take, on what YOU said: The guy was a LT at O'Hare...hmmmm

Is that a spot one earns or one gets?

No kidding, if you ask the LT the LT will tell you that the LT made it on the LT's score....No suprise there. How many merit LT's say that they are merit LT's..?

The guy had a merit spot and states he earned his rank - maybe he did, maybe he did not.

I worked with the Campbell's in 007. Nothin but the Real Deal,,,they ROCKIT!!!! If 008 had more officers like these guys, then maybe GARCIA RIDGE would be a place for me to consider purchasing a home for 300K. The Only time you see 811 is when they're going to Portillo's or Potbelly's or Krispy Kreme's or watching the pigs stumble into Lawlor's. Its time coppers in 008 get on the horn and call that smiling Alderman Z and demand more police protection.

Tact Lt. in 005 Wade Ingram made it on his own. No merit. Never a merit Sgt. either. Got sent out to O'Hare at the request of a boss.
Never asked to go there, and he never wanted to. If you don't believe it here, ask him. And don't be so sure that the Lts. out there won't tell you the truth about their merit status.
It's been said many times here that minorities are the greater recipients of merit promotion. Nothing could be further from the truth!I know of a merit Lt. in a far west side District, and a couple who are now assigned to NAGIS. All are white, and all of them deserved to be made. They were all sharp, hard working Sgts. before being promoted; no one who knew them would say anything different about any of them. Don't assume every black person in a white shirt was "placed" there.

Never did. I just assumed that LT Ingram was placed there, because he is SO dumb. You say he is not a merit LT, but I think if you talk to people in 5, they ALL will agree with me, and think that he is. Nothing to do with race on this, just on the competence level, or in this case, the lack there of.

He is in well over his head...really, I mean way over his head. You say he earned it, I say that perhaps he was in one of those "special" study groups then.

All I know is that the guys is good at two things: having highly shined cowboy boots, and having
his jeans starched. He sure looks good, even if he is always late.

Go ask the guys on the tact team what he did to a few of them after they did some search warrants. This great leader of the police - he fucked with them and these two guys did some kick ass warrants, not one rock - one bagger types.

Maybe, just maybe, some of those tact guys in 005 needed to be messed with.
Been on more than a few SWs in my time. Most were good, some weren't. Even when what's recovered is good, if procedures aren't kosher, it hurts all of us.
Unnecessary roughness, wrecking property that didn't need to be.
And of course, making ugly with the occupants. I wasn't there, so I can't say what happened, but if things weren't cool, then it is certainly Ingram's right to correct the crap, or inform the people who work for him of what he's not willing to put up with. After all, Lts. have to be on the scene on all search warrants now, and none of them want to be hauled down to IAD, or a civil or criminal courtroom to answer to any "improprieties." "Shiny boots?"
"Starched jeans?" Hell, did his predecessor wear ANYTHING that was clean, or starched? NOPE! It's not a crime to take some pride in your appearance. Accept the fact that they are different people. Ingram will be the first to tell you that the tact game is a new one to him. He learning it as he goes along, and that's all anyone can ask of any boss. He's late? Ok, show me how many tact guys show up every day ON TIME. Do any of the tact or gang team members drive there every day from the West side, like Ingram does? I didn't think so! The previous tact Lt. didn't even want to go out on SWs, and rarely, if ever, worked for more than 8 hrs. with his teams. Ingram can't do any worse than that unmotivated tub of lard that took up space in the office before him. People on the tact and gang teams can't be too miserable; no one's left any of the teams since the changes took place.
