Good News

Another set of coppers doing exactly what they are supposed to do - and the media actually covers it:
  • Two Chicago police officers from the 6th District were in the area responding to another call when they noticed smoke coming from the building. They called it in and then ran into the building to get people out.

    "As we went up, the smoke got thicker and thicker," said Officer Steven Sanders. "It was hard to breathe but we still kept knocking on doors to get people out of their apartments."

  • Officer Sanders graduated from the Chicago Police Academy in May while Officer Griffin has been with the force for six years. Residents from the building have similar messages for the brave officers.

    "Thank you, God bless you, we love you," said resident Priscilla Johnson. "They did a real good job."

They certainly did ma'am.

Way off topic,
Whats the deal in Town Hall?
Sgts taking care of only a few.

P.O.s making list.

P.O.s trying to get off 3rd watch by any means but not because of the Capt. but because of some of the Sgts and a few P.O.s!

And why is it that if you want time off they check a list in the book to see if you have the Garfield Park detail that day?
Are they going to deny time to you and give time to someone else because they don't have the so called "not detail"?
Sounds like a good question for the Union if they ever respond and
do something instead of saying they will look into it.



Thanks for letting me vent.

Good night and be safe!

Great article todays metro section pg 4 about a cop turned felon,'BP" who was convicted for selling police information and now wants to get a private investigators license so he can work at his job in the pub def office."With support of friends at the Chicago Police Dept he began speaking to officers about ethics". Where were they when he was on the job violating the ethics code. They will back a convicted felon but won't back a working police officer.What happened to the G.O. on consorting with convicted felons. Wheres the DEPT on this. one?Who backed him?

Man, Seiser did the same thing back in 98. Sgt. Mcburger didn't even give Seiser any credit.

"Sgts taking care of only a few.'

Boy, that scenario is probably played out in every District in the City..

Why is that?
The one constant throughout this Dept. Horseshit Supervisors.

Before you threestripers start whining & blubbering, think about it? Even you know of fellow Sgt's that have no business being in a Supervisory position.

There's your Morale problem incoming Supe, if you care to even address it.

Just a bit of advice for one and all going into burning buildings. Make sure your squad isn't blocking the street so the ambulance can get to you when you go down. If you must go in check doors/doorknobs to see how hot they are before you go kicking in that door. You can actually make the fire worse by giving it air.

Firefighters have air bottles for a reason, as well as the protective gear.

to cranky pants in "town hall" SHUT YOUR TRAP, You probably have no time on the job! Suck it up and pay your dues, obviuously if you have time to watch what everybody does your are not doing enough work. I work there too and I am quite happy. I am no one special but i get off all the time I need, I do my job and all anyone, including sgt's have ever done is be helpful. No I am not a suck up either, people probably think I'm not very nice most of the time.
Take a pill cranky pants some day you will have enough time to not have to do details and get your time off. AND STOP BEING SUCH A WINEY RAT!

It's true that the sup knew BP, the guy who's trying to get his PI license reinstated.
It's not true that the Supt. ever threw any benefits for him.

What is your pathetic need to make up lies about people?

Great Job. I was a cop for over 20 years and I would'nt be a firefighter for a week. People are easier to control than fire. Congratulations on a very heroic act.

to the guy with questions about Town Hall
There is no policy or contrctual agreement regarding the use of elective time except the granting of a personal day
The bottom line is thatthe dept can deny the use of elective time for any reason or for no reason.
if one is scheduled for Garfield Park ,he is presumably needed to go to Garfield Park that day

AND before you mother fuck me
Im a retired PO having spent my entire career except for the Academy in a blue shirt in a day off group

Perhaps this issue needs to be addressed but as of now it hasnt beem

In so far as the FOP looking into this practice, if they tell you theyre looking into managements granting of time due theyre full of shit.
Theres nothing to look into as of yet

Sorry Guy

Funny story that goes back some years in 005 Dist...Man shot in the building call at the "Wheelworks" or something of that nature...Anyway while my partner and I are securing the area, we find smoke coming from one of the apartments..To make a long story short, we call CFD and begin evac of the building on that side, smoke filling the hallways....we both suffer smoke inhalation, are covered in soot and here's the kicker...Sgt shows up and am still not sure if he was serious, asks us "Where are your hats?" ...this was the pre-baseball cap days....Oh and by the way no media and damn sure wasnt a commendation, award, anything....nada, zip....not crying or anything just typical and if that was back then, it cant be any better now...We were told that was our job...by the way, I am no longer in patrol and havent forgotten what you guys in the cars with the funny paint job do....G-d bless.
