Now Hiring!

Time to see if the grass is truly greener - the Berwyn Police Department is hiring:
  • Application availability begins on September 17th; completed application must be returned by September 28th.
  • Starting salary for 2007 $49,255.33; increases after 12 months to $56,409.02
  • Starting salary for 2008 $50,979.27; increases after 12 months to $58,383.34
  • Comp time/paid OT, liberal vacation/personal days Uniform allotment, 5 county residency requirement
  • Education stipend; $500/year for Associates Degree, $1,000/year for bachelors, $1500/year for Master’s or above. Tuition reimbursement
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO (comparable to Chicago ) with no employee costs
  • Liberal weapons policy, all vehicles equipped with shotguns and carbines in passenger compartment.
  • Motorcycles; ATV,s Segways, Bike Patrol; Canine Unit, Traffic Unit, Detectives, Juvenile, Tactical, Multi Agency Gang Task Force; Narcotics unit.
  • Lateral entry process will not begin until next spring; any currently certified officer who is hired off the eligibility list will be given an academy waiver, and placed immediately into field training.
Those of you unfamiliar with the Berwyn PD, it is currently headed by former CPD Lieutenant Bill Kushner. Chief Kushner has been a fan of our site almost since the beginning and writes to us on occasion. He had a lot of fans on the CPD (and more than a few detractors, too.)

In any case, Chief Kushner has given us this info to share with our readers, probably hoping to grab a few people currently fed up with the CPD. We don't know how many officers they are looking for, but right away, no residency, no employee costs for insurance, real guns with training - it already looks like they'll treat you like an adult.

The southside sure knows how to kick the weekend off..... Between Area 1 and Area 2 in the last 24 hrs. there has been 17 people shot, four of them Hyde Park School students in separate incidents and 5 homicides... as well as a police officer shot and the offender.

The best one is in the 008th district, where the responding beat car to shots fired gave it the old 19-P and woooo and behold a few hours later a concern citizen calls 911 to report two subjects slumped over the wheel of a car with the windows all shot out. At least the next responding car was able to find the two people shot to death in the car that the first car missed.

well its only about 3 am, so I am sure a few more people shot and/or killed will roll in before the sun rises.

KEPP DEPLEATING THE DISTRICTS SO THERE IS NO MANPOWER OVERNIGHTS WHEN ALL THE HAIR GEL SPECIAL UNIT GUYS ARE AT HOME SLEEPING. AND KEEP DUMPING ALL THESE PROJCT RESIDENTS INTO NEIGHBORHOODS AND WATCH THEM SHOOT IT OUT WITH THE GANGBANGERS THAT WERE ALREADY THERE!

I HOPE THE OYLMPIC COMMITTEE IS KEEPING TABS OF THIS VIOLENCE, SO THEY CAN ADD A FEW NEW SPORTS TO THE OYLMPICS WHEN THEY ARE HERE IN CHICAGO!

Ok...this is what I heard
we are currently accepting applications for an entrance exam on 31 Oct to coincide with Halloween. We figure their is such an abundance of inside officers who dress in police costumes and pretend to be the police, why not. In addtition, we will continue our tradition of integrity in the testing process by giving the same test again, after we post the same questions on the internet. Applicants are encouraged to take advantage of this new trend in testing.

Liberal weapons policy:
We also have a liberal weapons policy in that officers are given reams of paper. If and when an armed offender turns and points a gun at you, officers are encouraged to immediately tear open the ream and roll each sheet of paper into a ball to throw at the offender. We encourage officers to train themselves in this technique at home while watching the Bears on TV.

Our medical policy is second to none. If and when you feel an unexpected hang nail,or feel fatigued, just call in and we'll gladly give you the day, week, or year off, really.

Our technology is discussed in law enforcement circles all over the world & galaxy including the town of Wetwang, in Yorkshire (real town BTW). Yep, we have little birds in our radios that chirp,singing us beautiful songs to calm our nerves after about 4hrs. of listening to silly stories of 10 yr.old kids who have tantrums and won't go to school.

We pride ourselves on being legal scholars in that within a 5min time frame,people expect us to solve their child custody dispute with their ex-boyfriend,who is the daddy of one of their 12 children,and who are wards of the state,who children suffer from every medical condition known to man,and has a current court visitation order that allows visitation on nights that have a full and partial full moon,occurring on wednesdays,on even numbered months and they need transportation and shelter for 12 kids,two dogs,a cat,and a guy named Joe who hangs around at meal times and lays on the couch..etc. well, lets just say a code of 19P works for me.

Oh..and the citizens love you. Each and every school day, the pre-med students actively seek you out. You'll be given the opportunity to give them instructions on things like, how to get on a bus and just go home,how to walk home peacefully without pummeling & maiming each other before they reach the end of the street. They love you, really.

Off duty PO shoots home invader

At least the PO is ok. Hopefully the offender slowly rots away from a staph infection and or gangrene
~~~~~~~~~~~~

STNG) CHICAGO A man was shot by an off-duty police officer Saturday morning after he allegedly broke into the officer's home on the Southwest Side near Midway International Airport.

The Chicago police officer and his wife were sleeping in their home in the 6000 block of South Austin Avenue when the officer heard a noise and went to investigate, police News Affairs Assistant Director Pat Camden said.

The off-duty officer saw the offender, who apparently entered the home through the back door, and was in the process of arresting the suspect when the offender was shot, Camden said.

The offender suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and is listed in good condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

No one else was injured in the incident. The police Office of Professional Standards is investigating the shooting, Camden said. It is not yet know if the offender was armed when he invaded the home.

No charges have been filed as of 3:55 a.m.

2 offenders shot by police

27 people shot citywide

6 homicides

I would have to agree that it is not a pretty way to start off the weekend. But those dicks have to be cleaning up on overtime. Time for me to call my China-man and get that violent crimes dick spot!

I'M SORRY SHE DIDN'T DOZE OFF, SHE PRACTICALLY FELL ASLEEP, WHICH IS SOMETHING SHE DOES ON A REGULAR BASIS.

As a previous poster stated about being a suburban cop...just like the old song,"Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide", If you don't have clout there, your screwed once you, or somebody thinks you, step on your d*ck. And even if your a worker, someone almost always thinks your doing something wrong (e.g. "Oooh they puttin' sh*t on people, ah juss know..." etc.) At least in this "cronyized assed department" there is always somewhere you can transfer to for a "fresh start" once the honeymoons over in the old place.
But there's always "different strokes for different folks that rules the world", so if it works for you, then good luck, but, remember the "grass is always greener on the other side!"

Where you will have to show up in proper uniform, treat citizens, fellow officers and supervisors with respect. At the same time give up your 20 v-days, 13 paid holidays, 6 personal days, 5 BFD days and be bounced from the department without the safeguards that prevents the CPD from firing even the hard core criminals on this job.

9/15/2007 11:14:00 AM

The news nedia are 100% correct and accurate in their reporting of this incident. Both sides agree the man was in fact shot. Therefore he is the VICTIM of a gunshot wound!!! The police are alleging or in other words charging that he was burglarizing the house at the time. Once he is convicted it can be reported that he actually did it. Just like it cannot be said that the SOS guys committed any crimes nor can it be said that the Jefferson Tap guys did anything wrong. If and when they are convicted, then the "allegedly" goes away.

The only place that it ever says that somebody did something or that he is the offender is in a police report and even then the reports reads..."Victim stated to R/O that...." or "Victim related that"....This can also be phrased as..."Victim alleges..." or "It is alleged that..." or "Above subject was arrested in that..."

The media did not suggest for a second that the officer did anything wrong nor did they say that the person shot was innocent. They are simply reporting the facts as FACTS and nothing else. Maybe as a trained police officer, you should try doing that yourself sometime since that is what you are getting paid to do.

The courts are there to decide who the guilty party is not the media and not the police. THere are many other reasons to bitch about the media. They did not do anything wrong here, neither did the off duty officer and there is no reason to get all upset over it.

Now all you crying pieces of shit can leave this department. See how much you will like working for a police department that will treat you as professionals. A department that will not stand for your "kiss my ass" attitude. A place where you will be held accountable for your numbers. Where you will have to show up in proper uniform, treat citizens, fellow officers and supervisors with respect. At the same time give up your 20 v-days, 13 paid holidays, 6 personal days, 5 BFD days and be bounced from the department without the safeguards that prevents the CPD from firing even the hard core criminals on this job.

RE 008th district. As far as calling police on the west end and expecting a response. GOOD LUCK. I work in 008 and the fact is we are way short. I know everyone is, but its actually ridiculous. Just last night we had 7 coppers from 007 working every single 10 sector car. WHY? because everyone and their brother is trying to bid out of 008 but the fine higher ups refuse to post openings in 008 and even if they did its not 1990 anymore and 008 isnt the place to be. 811 is consatntly sent to 63rd western and artesian to handle jobs, leaving the working people that live in the 10 sector with NO POLICE PRESENCE. Anyone familiar with 008 would know that from archer/harlem to 63 western is a good 15-20 minute roll without traffic. i feel for the people of the west end, you truly are screwed. Time to start pressuring the city to give you your own district out there, its only going to get worse!

You have to be joking right? They were called back at 2200 hrs by ADS Risley because their Commander was complaining that TRU wasnt in the district fast enough after roll call. The rdo tact team finally rolled back into the station about 2330 and started unloading their stuff from the two 4-man cars. You should have seen them whine when they were told by the WC to go out in the DOC. They hit the doc about 0030 and were back in at 0130. It seems that their hours were adjusted to 1800-0230 for safe summer to allow "travel time" to area 5. (2 hours? everyone else starts at 2000 hrs AT Area 4)) Bottom line.....Thanks for the ONE hour of hard charging/crime fighting in your own district. If you don't give a shit about your own district going up for grabs why should TRU, SOS and the guy pushing the beat car care either? Then I hear the commander got on the phone and called directly to Dana complainaing about SOS and TRU, now they have to ansewr to the supe. Did the tact lt have to leave reports too? Of course not! just sos and tru.

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

Not sure what district you work in but it is not uncommon for more than 1 shots fired call to come out during a tour of duty. The shots fired call that was given a 19P was dispatched at approx. 2340 hrs at 7144 S. Richmond, “caller states he just heard 3-4 shots in the alley behind the residence”. The area was toured and the only person on the street at that time in that area was stopped, name checked and contact card was written.

When the call came in from the citizen that 2 people were found shot in a vehicle at 7039 S. Fairfield, at 0030hrs, which is almost 7 city blocks east of prior call, a canvas was conducted and 2 different citizens related that they heard 2-3 shots fired about 2200/2230 hrs but did not call 911 to report, a check with dispatch also showed that no calls of shots fired were reported at that time in that area. Another citizen interviewed said he had come home at 2300 hrs saw the car sitting there running but did not look to see who was in it and stated he did not hear any gunshots after that time he arrived home.

When responding units ( including CFD,AMB) arrived on scene rigor mortis had already started to set in on the bodies. Usually this starts to occur 2-3 hours after death.

The same car handled both calls and did write the paper.
The next time you feel you have to bash someone online and call someone a dog when you don’t know them or know all the facts I hope you take a minute to think before blogging.

In fact, the commander himself was the first car on the scene of the last shooting of that night, said on the air he was a block away and discovered the victim, and stayed on the scene until a 10-99 car took it over. I heard that bosses were calling 003 and asking where their units were, and nobody knew where they were because no one had seen them, but nobody reached out to any of the top command and complained about anything. TRU showed up and did their thing, and Risley showed up too, but there were no beefs from anybody in 003.
It was a crazy night, and a lot of us never got a chance to get a lunch in, but nobody complained, because we were just too busy to bitch about it. THOSE ARE THE FACTS!

I know that Officer Jim Klauba from the Academy physical skills staff teaches ground fighting and kick boxing that is geared toward officer survival. A lot of what he teaches is similar to Krav Maga and is designed to win a fight against multiple assailants, with no rules. He's very good at what he does and he teaches adults and kids out of a Church near Montrose and Cicero.

Of course your commander "merit all the way" Franlkin wont tell you he called in the street deputy his buddy "downtown" earnie brown who immediately sent risley a nasty message. Then when they werent happy with risleys answer they blackberried directly to Dana V. who is demanding a meeting with the lt"s of tru and sos monday morning along with risley. stay tuned guys and see if sos and tru do any more work in 003

Word is that ALL CHARGES may be dropped against the SOS officers after a news conference is held this week exposing wide spread prosecutorial misconduct in this investigation and case. So wonder Dick Devine isn't seeking another term as Cook County's States Attorney. This is going to be a big, very big bomb shell. And you heard it first here on SCC!

Maybe that is why the G jumped in.
They can go for civil-rights violations and keep them in day for day.

Dude, I know for a fact that most of the posts on the site are non-police officers. Police officers are too dumb and lazy the use a computer.

If SCC is a police officer I'll eat my hat. I heard he is a civilian detention aide.

I'm just a cadet, and after I graduate I would never join your department

Lets hope the rank & file dont drop

if this is the case.

Ok Ms tough guy. I'm sure if the Feds asked you to testify or stay in one of their vacation villas, you would pick the villa. Now go take your daddies uniform off and go to your 7-11 job.

Now all you crying pieces of shit can leave this department. See how much you will like working for a police department that will treat you as professionals. A department that will not stand for your "kiss my ass" attitude. A place where you will be held accountable for your numbers. Where you will have to show up in proper uniform, treat citizens, fellow officers and supervisors with respect. At the same time give up your 20 v-days, 13 paid holidays, 6 personal days, 5 BFD days and be bounced from the department without the safeguards that prevents the CPD from firing even the hard core criminals on this job.

Let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!!

9/15/2007 12:57:00 PM



Ok, what's the deal with you? I'd LOVE to work at a place that doesn't accept a Kiss My Ass attitude, Id LOVE to work at a place where you have to look presentable, act professional, and treat others with respect. You see, I do that now, and don't exactly fit in around here. And being held ACCOUNTABLE for my activity? What's wrong with that? I work my ass off now, so it shouldn't be a problem. Actually, it seems that people like YOU are the problem around here. I bitch here and there, but eventually I will go somewhere in an attempt to keep my sanity. You simply do little, bitch much. And how will the door hit me on the ass on the way out? It OPENS OUTWARD, dope!

Why was the 003 district gang team in 025 for Mexican Independence last night???? Doesn't their Area have its own problems???

9/15/2007 02:04:00 PM


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

yeah, which is why they were called back into the district when they had 5 shootings in less than 10 hours apart.

9/15/2007 08:19:00 PM

As usual, you asshats, the facts get in the way of reality....003 Gangs were in 025th district for "Operation Safe Summer" at time and a half, and WERE NOT CALLED BACK TO the 003rd District.
You guys need a clue as well as a life!!

to 9/15 @4:55--If Kushner had enough clout to make a call to "friends downtown, do you REALLY think he would have used it to stay in 003? C'mon, get real!

Berwyn is not the suburb that it was in years past. The city more resembles 010 now than anything. Most of the Czechs and Poles have moved on and there is a bad element in some parts of the town. Dog asses need not apply. There is nowhere to hide in this place, the calls are coming in like rapid fire. Why do you think Berwyn increased its PD by 12 officers in the past couple of years, and are looking to take more on? There are lots of shit heads and stuff happening every few minutes there. I just read that there was a shooting in the towns North Side a couple of days ago. If you work afternoons or nights you are going to work.

no one had time to call out to anybody and complain about TRU.
Wherever they were before they finally showed up, the only people who noticed that a lot of violence was playing out in 003 and no additional help was out there were the headquarters bosses. Everyone else was waist deep in shit, ask around, find out who got lunch that night, it wasn't many. if TRU has to answer as to where they were, i guess they'll just have to do that. Everybody who worked that night was doing what they could to hold the level II.
