GPS Phones

What's up with this new pilot order in the 008 District? 50 GPS phones and chargers? Officers required to carry and utilize said phones for official notifications. Must be worn in Department approved carriers on the belt?

Is the City getting away from putting GPS in the cars and going with phones? Why not just go with the GPS radios like the Park District and be done with it? Or are we going to be testing the GPS chip implants next?

And who's got the "contract" to supply these things? What aldercreature's nephew is making a bundle on this one?

as usual,it's the patrolman who gets screwed. I assume no one in the front office or CAPS is getting these phones. God forbid an officer goes home 5 min early, but the inside officers come and go as they please and wear whatever they want,most not in uniforms that have been paid for by citizens paying taxes. Will somebody please show me the paragraph in our uniform General Order that gives permission for dress down Fridays? How can Inspectors gig a street officer for a uniform deficiency when every Friday, 100's of officers are out of uniform completely. I observed someone from CAPS the other day, in jeans, with the shirt pulled out,lounging around the desk, as job upon job is being dispatched. And people wonder why they don't see police on the street anymore or have to wait an hour or more for an officer to arrive. Used to be just tactical and detectives wore civilian dress, now anything goes.

To enable the Moto. DTS 5000 radios for GPS, a different corded mike is required. This adds about a grand to the cost of each radio. I'm sure the phones are much cheaper, even with my...ah I mean the aldermanic tax that is added to the contract.

COME ON!! How much more shit can you carry on your belt??? Flashlights, pepper spray, handcuffs, keys, weapon and 2 extra mags, radio, Tasers for FTO's. Hell.. put the cell phone on when they order you to wear it and then fall over like a fuc%in' turtle saying your back is shot.

Charlie Williams came to 008 in July and said that this was a pilot program that we were going to try out for a few months. Said the phones would be handed out with our radios and signed out the same way and that the program was supposed to start the following week. I know this will be shocking, but no phones yet. Phones were supposed to be pre programmed with #'s to area dicks, ops command, the district desk and other necessary city #'s. Just another unecessary piece of equipment to carry around and eventually lose. Williams kept emphasizing how the phones served a dual purpose, 1) to know where we are if dispatch cant find us (making it sound like the bosses are really concerned about our safety) and 2) to keep tabs on us if we are doing things we shouldnt be doing. not sure what happened but its now been 2 months since his roll call visit and no phones yet

charlie williams came to 008 3rd watch roll call a few months ago and said 008 and 701 will get cell phones. you can only dial preprogrammed numbers (the area, w/c, desk, missing persons, etc). you sign the phone out with your radio and yes they do have GPS. williams said that they're doing this pilot program through motorola because it's free for a few months. williams said that this is for officer safety purposes. yea right!! i never heard GPS out of any bossess mouth until the sos scandle. yesterday the w/c said that 008 tact will get the phones first, then the watches will get them.

Not sure what's up with the phones, but the department just got the money to put gps in all the squads. The marked cars will be first followed by unmarked, including the d- unit and the other units. Nobody will escape it.

The department also got the funding for many more dashboard cameras.

This "pilot program" just goes to re-enforce a theory that I had. OEMC will be able to see where you are at ie. cars on the dots. The official line will be, The ability of OEMC to send the units closest to a call." In accuality(sp) the OEMC/Department will be able to tell where you are at all the time.

Sorry no spending hours at Signature or 7-11. Not meaning to slam anyone here, but 008 will be the first to enjoy the new technology. If you sit still for to long OEMC will give you a call on the radio asking for your status.

SGT's computers will also be given the ability to "see" where you are at. This is real bad news for the DOGS but for the workers...they wont care cause they roll all watch long.

This really isnt Global Positioning Satellite technology. Its is basic cell phone techology triangluation. Think the Fire Dept already has this already.

I bet the phones have more to do with the media than anything else. Do not want to put too much on the radio.
All they can do is triangulate the phones. They can usually get within 30 meters ( sometimes down to 5 meters) if the cell phone carrier "pings" the phone. That used to cost 50 or 100 a ping. As you move from tower to tower , they can get the cell site readings if they go real time but that involves having a pen register which involves a court order.
Have to know who the carrier is to be more specific.

What a great way for the "G" to spy on the police. Give them the phones with the phones acting as a microphone ( sort of a roving wiretap) and listen in to what partners are saying to each other. I would worry about that more than the gps stuff.

The phones are so citizens can complain that the oficers are talking on their own cells, no wonder they aren't issuing tickets to drivers who are illegally on cell phones while driving.

If the CPD can keep track of their officers by cell, good.

That will "fix" those silly officers who marry and date "sick fiends from hell" and then harass us decent folk when that fool gets them in trouble.

=============================

If you worked for Kathy Boehmer, you would know that she is probably the best D/C in the Department.

She has always been the working police and still is.

She, along with a Sergeant pulled a pistol off a convicted felon a couple of Fridays ago.

She doesn't lord her position over anyone as many exempts do. She is as down to earth as she was when she was a PO.

Who gives a shit what she looks like? You have some serious problems if you judge just on looks.

Or you are just pissed she lives an alternate lifestyle and can tell you what to do.

Go back to the bar after work and bitch about how your life sucks and how you hate your job. If you do hate it,,,,there are about 6,000 other law enforcement agencies in the US that you can apply to. You won't get paid as much, but then again you probably don't do shit anyways.

The plan is to eventually ban personal cell phones. And it's about time. Members of the public see some of us talking on cell phones all the time and realize it's personal business, not police business. They write letters. Their letters create an opportunity for insiders to make money on stuff like this. We have only ourselves to blame.

EVENT#99999

THE GRAND EVENT#

What Boss is the ultimate believer that an event number means something? W/C's D/C's are tubling over themselves like idiots trying to get these. Get an event number for this get one for that. Who is the person that recieves all these numbers and what do they do with them? Is that person the only one that believes that they mean something? How many times you here on the radio give me an event number for .... don't hold me down it. Or ask for an event number for a mission/ special attention/ whatever and the dispatcher gives it to you followed up by a job. Obviously you are spending no time on said mission then through no fault of your own.

Or the ultimate event# hoax pod mission. Every boss has pod mission on his log every night. But just cause you have an event number doesn't mean shit. (since the cameras DO NOT WORK,(dont pan focus) if u don't believe me have the media do a report on them and see for themselves at any station. Not at OEC or HQ, not sure how those work) SO the numbers r obviously meaningless yet they continue to put them on their logs to show them to WHO????

Reminds me of an old fable. The Emperor is in his underwear.

MERIT PROMOTIONS: As much as we all beef about so called merit promotions, thats all we have ever had.

The city, under endless democrat administrations, has NEVER conducted an honest promotional exam.

With the possible exception of a Det. exam way back in the 60s. And then they were so pissed at the honest results they vowed it could never happen again. And it hasn't.

So whether they call it merit or use the regular promotional tests it always has the same results.
Connected do-nothings are taken care of and screw the rest!

Daley has stolen any chance of an honest promotion for us and now he and the rest of his thieving family are looting our pensions.

"If you worked for Kathy Boehmer, you would know that she is probably the best D/C in the Department.

She has always been the working police and still is.

She, along with a Sergeant pulled a pistol off a convicted felon a couple of Fridays ago.

She doesn't lord her position over anyone as many exempts do. She is as down to earth as she was when she was a PO."

SIGNED HER BIGGEST FAN,
KATHY BOEHMER.

What a great way for the "G" to spy on the police. Give them the phones with the phones acting as a microphone ( sort of a roving wiretap) and listen in to what partners are saying to each other. I would worry about that more than the gps stuff.

If you simpletons knew how easy it is to activate a cell phone so it is constantly being monitored you would throw these phones in the trunk.Not "sort of a roving wiretap",EXACTLY a roving wiretap.

Been there done that kid, now I live the good life and do what I have to, nothing more, nothing less, I back up my fellow officers and handle my jobs. I left the ghetto a long time ago and never looked back. The fighting 020th used to be one of the busiest spots on the north side back in the day, but you wouldn't know, you were probably still swimming around in your daddies sack.....

Well I wouldn't worry about the phones for too long. We had a visitor at roll call the other day who related quite definitively that the department was able to find the funds to outfit every car with a GPS system. This visitor related that they will be starting to install these units within the next month or so. He didn't mention what was up with the phones, but he was sure about the cars. How long will this last, who knows. I do know this, GPS is beatable. All you have to do is let your supervisor know where you are going and what the reason is you are going there and you are covered. I know that this is a little 3rd grade, but we have to play the games they create. If you have a good boss everything will be cool. If you have a stroke boss; you're screwed. Tell your boss what's going on and you as the individual are covered. Obviously you can't be going to 014 to eat lunch if you work in 005 but I am sure that if you have decent boss and let that person know what's up you won't have a problem.

Is there anyone out there who can honestly say they have ever handled 7 shootings ( Not calls of shots fired) in one tour? If that is the case then stupid next time take your time and write them correctly, which will take some time. Make the proper notifications, take a lunch, have a personal or two. At most you might have to take two shootings, any more would indicate you work somewhere just outside of Iraq.

I honestly don't care about Kathy Boehmer's lifestyle or sexuality. As a hetrosexual male, I have worked both with and for gays, male and female who were good people and some who wern't. (No I won't mention any names.) I also don't care about her being over weight (most of us, myself included could stand to loose a few pounds). But she along with Adrienne Stanley and some other exempts look like slobs, and that is something that they can do something about.

Well here is my .02, take it for what its worth. I left CPD(after 20 yrs) a bout a year ago and I am now with another city dept. we have GPS on our phones and it tracks you this way. There is a program called xoria(sp) or something like that, when you hit the street you click on the button to start day, etc. and it registers you. (same can be done for start of job,lunch, end of day, etc.)Six or more GPS stats then get your position and relays it back to whomever needs to see it. like here are the cords of where I was one day a few weeks ago. (To find out where I was go to google earth, and it will give you the location (In GMT time(subtract 5 hrs and you get chi town time)within 1-200 feet. for those who want to know I tried it and here are the coord. N 47' 55.408' W 87' 41.898' let me know what is around that address( I know where I was and it was right) *smile*

So to end this long A post ye it is here and YES they will know no matter what, where when and for how long we have been someplace.

WOW! A year in Bosnia for Dyncorp? Holy Cow! That sounds like real scary stuff. I'm sure he's been there and done it all after that! You must be in the CAPS office because thoes are the only coppers in 023 that he talks to. I spent 6 years in the Marines and any comparison to Dyncorp in Bosnia would be a disgrace!

There is no GO as of yet. If there stupid pilot program works you can bet your paycheck they can easily draft an order.

This just prompts us to be smart and be one step ahead of the brass and the city. Start calling, international #'s, take a phone and "forget to sign it out," leave it in the station, accidentally drop it in the toilet, get it wet when it is raining. By the time the beat coppers are done with those phones they will wish they didn't issue us anymore useless shit.

If you take the battery off it can not be traced with GPS correct? If a boss asks to see it, pull it out of you pocket and slip the battery on without anyone noticing.

This will be just like the beat-link phone program from a few years ago.
No system to replace batteries, no system to replace lost/broken phones, endless to/froms as to why you called the wife/girlfriend on the company phone, etc etc etc. And....dum da da dum....all provided to the CPD for FREE by the cell phone provider. Yes, I saw the old beat-link bills -- all, regardless of what number was called were for $0.00......

I certainly hope department realizes that these calls are going out through a wireless system, and therefore are subject to eavesdropping. Wouldn't it be great if the news got a scoop by listening to their scanner and picking up the call before Boo-Boo's family was notified he be dead?. There is a reason why we have WIRED phones and PAX lines, folks......

CAUTION: Read the affidavit in the SOS case: Apparently all it takes for the FBI to get jurisdiction in a case is the use of a cell phone!

Thats right! It is ASSUMED that the device is capable of INTERSTATE transmission and even though no interstate transmission takes place they can use it's use as their hook for entering a case.

Ahh, perhaps an introduction to CDMA is in order. CDMA is based on spread-spectrum phase shifting, in which an algorithm is used to send tiny bits of each conversation over a different part of a huge frequency spectrum. The algorithm (including a starting number to which the algorithm is applied) is basically known only to the base station and the receiver.

This was developed by the military (believe it or not, Heddi Lamarr, the actress in WWII), and used for decades.

Basically, the only way you are tapping this is either deducing the algorithm (including the starting number), or tapping the base station or receiver, much like you would tap the wired network.

Not so simple as listening to a fixed-frequency scanner.
