The State of the Department

If everything pans out as we hear it will, the new boss will be named before Friday, possibly as early as Wednesday.
Let's face facts here. This Department is in bad shape. We're not going to go out and call it completely broken, because that might imply that it's beyond repair or redemption. We don't think that.
What we do think however, is that the next Superintendent is going to be the make or break guy. This is no "caretaker" spot now, no treading water. Either the new guy makes some serious headway into addressing problems and issues or it's pretty much game over. And we'd hate to see that as we still have a number of years to go until we actually get to retire.
What can the Superintendent actually address that might affect the average street guy or gal? Certainly not the lack of a contract - that's decided by the mayor. "Merit" promotions and clout movement? A City Hall issue. Decent cars and PDT's that work the way we've been promised they'll work? Again, political issues that are systemic of a large bloated bureaucracy.

How about a few of the little things? Things that might reduce bloat:

  • The "house mouse" issue. Too many office staffs are too huge. We hear of purges at 35th Street where they'll cut 10 or 20% of the manpower every few years, but it always seems to creep back upwards. We thought we were supposed to be a paperless Department seven years ago but we're going through paper faster than ever before. Do you have any idea how many people's sole job it is to just make copies? How about restructuring entire Bureaus so you cut office staff by 40% or more and eliminate paper copies of everything. Someone had the right idea with the TRR's - we used to make 8 copies every time, now only OPS wants a copy - everyone else adapted to the lack of paper copies.
  • An overhaul of how we're dispatched to jobs? There is no way we need to be rolling on 90% of the "Assist Fire" calls that we do. Or the "Domestic Disturbance" calls involving a 9 or 10 year old kid who doesn't want to go to school? Or the jobs that ought to be duped over to any one of a number of other City agencies - Animal Control, Streets and San, Department of Buildings, etc. Start a new policy and tell citizens "THIS ISN'T A POLICE MATTER." Then stick with it. They'll learn.
  • And how about the "detailed out of District" assignments that run for years at a time? Either assign these people to where they actually work or get them back to the Districts so that we can stop getting Personal Days denied. 60 to 80 people out of 350 detailed from the District isn't just a service issue - it's a safety issue.

These are just three simple issues that, if corrected, would significantly alleviate the manpower shortages at the District level. And it's issues that the Superintendent can actually advocate for.

detailing from a district to whereever is just a way of counting people twice. On the sheets we have 350 people. the detailed go to various units where they are counted again. Seems like a sysytem where the city saves pays for one officer for everyone thats detailed. Thats Millions of dollars per year. Why would the city ever want to change that shell game?

im detailed out and I agree, that I should not take up a spot in a district. If you are detailed for more that 30 days you should be assigned to that unit. Because if you mess it up its on you, and if you are dumped go where the powers that be decide.

What the department needs is an enema.

Unfortunately, it ain't gonna happen.

The King of the Leprechauns is not going to allow any major changes in the department. He can dine with "alleged" mobsters, but we end paying the tab.

If there was a real Mayor the first thing that would be done is beat realignment. Tell the whiny ass aldermen to kiss his pale magically delicious butt.

Bring in an outsider.

In my humble opinion,the different categories for change would include:
Personnel
Technology
Administrative
Procedure

Personal
We all have been saying it and everyone knows it, reduce the officers assigned to specialized units, those working the front offices of units/districts, and at HQ's. Those detailed out of a district, lose their spot. If they have enough juice, they'll come back anyway.

Speaking of HQ's, look at the officers and Supervisors, who are doing the same task(s)that civilians are doing or can be doing. Some there have been working on projects their whole career(s).

Stagger the start time for TRU, and SOS,this way, they can cover school dismissals, which will allow the district units to serve their district.

Anyone on medical that can answer a phone, go to your district of residence and answer a phone or do a report. This will free up a healthy body, no brainer there. Go after the medical abusers!

Not only could we use all these added people in the field for backup, but the citizens paid taxes to have that officer on the street and not in a cubicle.

Rather than write a book here, I will take a personal.

TECHNOLOGY:

Finish one rollout before you start another one.

The PDT situation is disgraceful. For a company to say that we lead the state,country, world, and universe in cutting edge technology, every car should have the new PDT. This should be a priority in moving the department into the new millenium.

Buy new radio batteries. The battery in my radio used to last at least the 8hrs.but now it seems they are lasting maybe 6 hours or less.

ADMINISTRATIVE

SCC brings up the idea to restructure the Bureaus. This is vital to modernizing this department.

Beats, and Districts need to be redrawn.
The 008 District at one time had a low crime rate, thus, you could justify the size. With the increase of crime, it is much to big to patrol. Heck one sector is bigger than some districts. In the 10 sector, if one is given a job at 43rd and Pulaski, and you're at Archer and Harlem, you might jump on Rt.55,travel 3 or more miles at highway speeds just to get to a job in your own sector

Rather than have DOC meetings weekly,make it every other week, and have the exempts and their staffs work the street one day a week, and not just ride around aimlessly. Assign them to answer calls, do reports and make arrests. This way you can experience what all of us in Patrol are harping about or at times complaining about.
If you're a civilian exempt, you can work the desk.

PROCEDURE

Some of these ideas are already being done by suburban departments.

One I-Bond per customer. That's it. If you were ever given one I-Bond,sorry, you now have to post cash or go before a Judge for bail. Also with a name ck.and supervisor permission, let an officer write an I-Bond on the street. It makes no sense to have an officer TVB a traffic offender, only to have himself or another P.O. write an I-Bond in the district.

A second offense, with a prior conviction for Retail Theft is an automatic Felony. We are spending much to much time on a Retail Theft arrest with Felony Review involved.

Beat meetings should be held by sector and every 90 days,not monthly. So many of the beat problems carry over to the adjacent beats anyway.

I for one am sick of citizens not pulling to the right or yielding to me when I am on an emergency call. As we all know, we have cameras that can cite a citizen for failure to stop at a stop light. If a camera can cite a driver,why can't we?

If we or a Fire department vehicle have the occasion to be on a hot call and a driver fails to yield, why can't we call the plate into the dispatcher and have the driver get a summons in the mail?

Let all sworn officers, with training, use a taser.

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.

If the beats are realigned, as many call for, the decent areas will have even less cars.

The system ignores population and relys solely on crime stats and calls to 911.

Those areas where 911 calls are just part of the "citizens" daily routine will get even more service and the peacable law abidig areas will be even further shorted.

Officers,

99% of the problems confonting you - the individual officer - have Nothing to do with Anything remotely involved with what is Pee'd all over the media.

That is an orchestrated mess created by the Lefties to undermine all confidence in our institutions, values and our neighbors themselves.

The Media holds the blame for this as they are networked and webbed to the very social engineers writing and editing the headlines for the complicit ink-slingers.

Two writers with any backbone John Kass and Neil Steinberg wer the only ones to come near the truthin recent weeks.

Two years ago it was the firefighters getting hosed, now it is the Police getting water boarded by Flint Taylor's mob. Today it is the Public Schools.

Stay Strong and have Faith. God Bless all Peace Officers!

Damn straight about the calls that the police will be sent on.

In a perfect CPD, DCs, area deputys and the Supe/1st Deputy would have a huge amount of discretion (and use it wisely) in where to send concentrations like SOS/TRU. Heck, I'd give 20-50 POs per district to any DC to use as they see fit, but they'd better be able to justify the use if asked.

But no way, no way in the world, do the police get sent on 40 or 50% of the pimp calls they go on now. Property damage accidents? Insurance companies. They only thing the police should be doing on the street is driving by and calling for a tow for non-drivables. Burglar alarms? Let the alarm companies use private security. Parking (say, non-handicapped)? Department of revenue.

Problem with the 8 year old kid? DCFS.

And so on and so on. An easy 40% of the calls should not be going to y'all.

You get rid of this, you don't have no backlog with the current manpower. You don't have no backlog with the current manpower, you don't have no Durkin Park.

It will never get better as long as we have merit supervisors and patronage control from city hall.

Look at 005 what a great district we had with civil service captains and commanders who at least where civil service captains with 25 years on the job. Remember when we had one computer car a sector, and three wagons, one tac team, and no gang or specialized units. Remember when the zone was manned by the police. We were the best police dept in the world, you rotated and had comradere, not the hate for the management, and no females in the front office or on the desk. we are doomed.

Now a two year veteran female is the case management officer, we have a Lt. on days who would be fragged in Nam along with a merit captain who works from 0600 to 2200 hours aday.

thankfully I never used the medical my first 20 years but in the last five I hit it twice a year. I would be embarrased to face the old captains and real Lts, but I believe the dept made me this way.

This Department has big problems. Whoever is next has lots of work to do. One major issue that the new Superintenednt has to look at is relaignment of beats, and District boundaries, and reallocating manpower from not only 35th and Michigan but many of the specalized units. Don't get me wrong, I am not against specalized units per se (I have been in some muself), but something is wrong when Districts can't man cars and are in "RAP'S" all night long and certain units such as TRU and Narcotics and Gangs have people coming out of the woodwork.

Dont make excuses for yourself. Maybe if your not in a good spot on this department its because your an asshole. Maybe its cause you burnt you bridges. Maybe it is all your fault. People wake up and realize you took this job and you can leave it. Worry about yourself and just do your job and shut up. None of you people could ever make it in the business world. It is pathetic how the majority of people on this site just bitch and talk about their unhappiness. Do I think We got a tough job yes. Do I think there is a lot of bullshit yes. But deal with with it and be smart. Coppers talk to much bullshit. They are their own worst enemies. We ruin things on our own. Worry about yourself and help out your peers out there and go home safe. My fellow peers just do your job and dont be a jagoff. Help each other out and take care of each other and dont take credit for it. Just look out for each other and I guranteed you will be a happier more optimistic person. Dont let this bullshit kill you. And also dont be jealous talk shit about each other. YOu never know but someday that person mayybe saving your job or maybe even getting you into a good spot.

The problem with not going out on jobs that are not police matters is that the call taker needs to be bright enough to determine if it really is or is not a police matter, even if you have specific guidelines. The department will always err on the side of caution to avoid a law suit.

close the following districts 13, 21,and 23 that would eliminate 3 dc's , 9 captains, etc and alot of inside people we need these po's in 8 and 22.

------------------------------------

#1. District Realignment:

I totally agree with the above statement. The calls for service are so damn low in those districts it's unbelievable. There is no reason 020 and 019 can't cover the rest of 023. There is no reason 001 (3 beats a sector), 002 (4 beats a sector but the district isn't what it used to be) can't cover all of 021 (3 beats a sector). And there is no reason that 011 and 012 can cover all of 013. 011 has 5 beats a sector and 1124, 1125, 1134, and 1135 hardly are what they used to be. Granted they are defiantly needed on the west end of the district. Stretching out 011 to cover all the way too Western from Division to Madison would hardly be a problem, probably 2 beats. That and 012 doesn't even have 4 beats a sector, it's 3! So they can for sure cover the rest of the slack East of Western in 013.

Getting rid of those 3 districts could possibly put 300+ people to where they are really needed.

Split up 008 into 2 districts or add 6 beats a sector or more...

#2. Get rid of merit promotions. I hardly have a shit to piss in when it comes to time on the job. But I hate dealing with SGTs who can't even add 2+2 let alone pass a SGT test.

#3. Fix the GOD damn FTO program. I don't know if it has always been like this or not. But you're putting people with no time on the job (me) and training people. It's the god damn blind leading the blind. Make being an FTO an incentive.


#4. Fix our cars/PDT's/radios. Our equipment is shit! Right our cars are driven 24/7 365 days a year. If that is such a problem, give us more cars.

#5. Stop having call takers send us to jobs that are not a police matter. I don't know how many calls I 19/D a day.

#6. Get rid of TRU, SOS, Area Gang Teams, Area Gun Teams. Bring back GANGS SOUTH/NORTH or something similar to it. Have the people on the teams actually years on the job, not straight of PPO status. Having one big team, that can share information is so much better than having 5 units keeping information to themselves.

#7. Get rid of seat belt missions all they do is hold down 3/4 cars and a SGT while the rest of a district goes ape shit handling all the calls.

#8. How about 4 days on 10 hour work days. Talk about an incentive for people to join the force. What I wouldn't do to have that. 2 more hours is nothing. Having 3 days off is fantastic. (maybe this is more of a contract thing).

#9. Someone mentioned that the management in this Dept have no management skills what-so-ever. Though I think it is a reflection of our country (as someone else stated). There is no reason things have to be as chaotic as they are. That and whoever manages the money and what we purchase... what a joke. The mob must really have their fist up our tail...

there is so much more I probably don't even know about, but that are just some things i'm griping about and wish to change.

As of July 23,2007- 112 days have elapsed since Superintendent Cline's resignation.

112 days to find a suitable candidate for Chicago Police Superintendent?

Either there are no suitable contenders within the CPD ranks or national candidates want no part of this circus.

Can Mayor Richard M. Daley effectively make decisions any longer?

Whatever the holdup this truly would make a fine news story.

What is the average selection time for a superintendent/chief in NYC,LA,Philadelphia,Houston,San Antonio,Phoenix?

What is the average time elapsed for the selection of a superintendent in Chicago based upon past history?

Does anyone sense major procrastination in naming a new superintendent?

Is anyone heeding the rumbles and rumors floating about at 3510 S. Michigan?

Will the media address this delay in selecting a replacement superintendent?

The CPD is in suspended limbo at the moment,lieutenants will not be promoted until a new superintendent is named.

Numerous exempt members are contemplating retirement but are holding off until the announcement.

Manpower shortages are wreaking havoc in the districts and causing huge delays in calls for service.

Specialized units are decimating patrol ranks.

Where and when will it end?

When will this be addressed?

The time is now to name a new superintendent before a policeman is killed or another more tragic Durkin Park occurs.

112 Days and Counting

You want to see a real crime scene, videotape yourself picking up your check every 1st and 16th. They should have crime scene tape around your paycheck.

I've got the perfect solution to solve the manpower shortage and raise morale. Take the 30% of the current Sergeants who were made meritoriously over the years, approximately 400 Sergeants, and the 20% of the current Detectives who were made meritoriously over the years, approximately 240, and bust their girly asses back down to patrol officers and put them in the Districts where they are needed!
In one fell swoop, you would solve the problems of the department AND generate enough big crocodile tears to clean the streets of Chicago.

I'm convinced specialized units will not go away or be made smaller. Units are created as a way to get more federal $$$$. Uncle Sam says I'll give you x million dollars if you make up a homeland security unit. OK so we create TRU. Uncle says hey I've got few more million. OK here comes fusion center.
Get the idea?

The only problem is we are not hiring more personnel with the new found money, but rather the city keeps their money for flower pots and uses Uncle's money for salaries. Personnel numbers stay the same (not increase) and our expenses decrease.

Why are there seat belt missions? state/federal $$$$. Take a look at the cost of certain items on your units inventory. Anything that has $1.00 as a cost, they did not buy.
Kiddie seats, seat belt signs etc..

The last Patrol Specialist Class was in Spring 1992. Help me out here but I believe the 1st FTO (pfcstripe wearing guys) wans't until 97-98?

In that time the department hired close to 3500-4000 POs who were trained by guys just off their probation. That's not Bullshit, that's fact. No FTOs were made for 5 years during a time that seen the largest hiring by the CPD in Decades.

Some of the biggest whiners on this job are people who claim they can't wait until they retire. They say on a daily basis that they can't wait to get out of here. These people think they have everything coming because they have time on the job.

The people who held up the 10 hour day, yep you guessed it, people with time on the job. They were ready to jump on it after they saw how great it was, but then it was taken away.

People afraid of change, the senior people.

People who talk about the good ol' days and how the job is now screwed up, senior people.

Take a look in the mirror, Vitalis Boy/Aquanet Girl, and realize that you all whine just as much if not more than the hair gel people because unlike them, you actually believe you have something coming because you have 20 years on.

Some of you people say you are KMA and pump out your chests out but are still shakey as Jello. You are afraid of your own shadow.

Afraid to be the first car on a job, afraid to volunteer for anything or speak your mind to supervisory staff until you get a retirement date planned, then when it gets close, you magically grow a set of balls.

Don't talk to me about whining because you Vitalis/Aquanet people have just as many or more whiners, after all, you have 20 years on the job, ain't that right Kid?

I;ll bet the RAPs would clear up pretty quick that way.

To clarify, two compaines of 80 officers are NOT sent to the same district. There are three companies working everyday in three different deployment areas(2 in area2,1 in area1) 80 officers are NEVER working every day, with furlough, medical, iod, c.u. etc the number is usually around 45 or so, so about 20-25 cars are in any deployment area at any given time, when in the deployment area the RAPS are minimal, TRU supervisors are always helping out with jobs they can handle and code, they are not there to handle paper jobs, they are there to do what the district doesn't have time to do, be visable, lockup these gangbangers and make them miserable, and prevent shootings. The shootings have been extremely minmal in any DOC while they are there, as have the RAPS, you must not be from an AREA 2 district... sorry were not deployed to area4 and 5, we would love to be.....

Stop taking those anonymous "Noise Disturbance" calls. If the "anonymous" doesn't want to come out and sign a disorderly complaint, Code The Job and Dupe any additional calls unless they want to sign on the line!

Speaking of Paer usage....What is the problem with using printers that use both sides of a piece of paper? Everything, including general orders are printed on a single side of paper! As far as I Know, only inventories are two sided. Does daley's get paper contract, or the one sided printer contract?

I don't agree that this department is in a state of distress. This job is what you make of it.

"People who talk about the good ol' days and how the job is now screwed up, senior people." From 7/24/2007 06:05:00 AM. The "good ol' days is why we have all these new rules now.
"Ah, remember when we could do home invasions, steal thousands in cash and beat people into oblivion with a flashlight?" Ah the good ol' days.
Its the veterans who fucked it up for us. Maybe cause they didn't have college or hair gel back then.

The bronze plaque reads "dedicated 1981"

Time to tear it down and rebuild it "the right way!"

Always liked 025 though, just not the shitty building.

USA Today had an article on the front page today (Tuesday 24 Jul 07) about how state and local agencies are creating fusion centers with federal money, but not a single one can do the job that it was designed to do. Someone with better skills at linking articles to the comments here can maybe set up a link for it. Very interesting reading.....

Well I didn't read all 100 comments on this thread as it rather quickly devolved into finger pointing and Hair Product accusations.

My only comment is that whether it is Grau or Williams, don't expect ANYTHING to change in regards to Top Brass versus Bureau of Patrol. We're still going to see the new Superintendent giving lip service to "accountability" within the rank & file and Mayor Daley will still be getting his weekly lapdances from whoever steps into Kline's shoes.

It'll just be more of the same folks - I'm very sorry to report. We're still going to see the new Super do everything that Pawnsatawnee Phil did, and then some.

I think that there are some initiatives that are funded with federal dollars (on a fed intitiative), and some are funded with fed grants....maybe a few are worth something, but most are bullshit, either sold to the feds by the city, or funded by the feds (homeland security) because they have a mandate to "spend the money", so somebody comes up with a project to spend the money....an intillectual bankruptcy of leadership, at the local and federal level...

Trained in 002. Got sent to 008 off probation...YAWN. Bid to 011, spent eight years there, bid to 010, spent four years there. Made dick & spent 5 years in Area 4. Now I work in a unit that spends it's time in Area 1 & Area 2. 008 might be busy, but it ain't a large ghetto. Thanks for proving my point about all the bellyaching prima donna bitches that work in 008. Sorry that time caught up with you and now you gotta earn your dollar.

009 Dist has coppers detailed out all over the City. Let's start with them and we'll soon see that there are really a lot of coppers to go around.

Start with the Mayor's detail and go from there...better yet, those coppers that watch over Burke and the Area One Saturation guys.

Quit bitching about lack of manpower already! Start with 009 and get it solved already.....

009 dist 2nd Watch

......................................................................................... Please if you are a 009 copper for 10+ years. Do your self a favor and leave that fuckin place. Don’t make the same mistake I made and stay 10 + years. That place sucks the bosses suck you get treated much better anywhere else in the 24 other districts. Please please leave. I remember the "Great Bosses" that stuck it in my ass. I Thought I was being loyal. They could give a fuck. Meanwhile I was watching Drunken ass tack guys on duty literally laughing in our pathetic faces on the watch. All they needed to do back in the 1990's was play great softball. Fuck them and fuck 009.009 thanks for nothing

You've obviously never worked in a ghetto. If you can eat in the district...you ain't in the ghetto.
