Slow Posting

It's snowing don't you know? We'd like to take the kids to a toboggan slide, but Stroger (Sr and Jr) pissed away all the county money that used to provide cheap wintertime thrills.

Open post in the meantime.

Go over to SCS and check the post about Contract Violation. I talked to my sergeant and he related that they have to look at a PCAD and list you as accused if you are on the PCAD and you fit a very general description even with no affadavit or any other supporting evidence. THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT! They allegedly get the C.R. kicked back if they dont do it. Sergeants is this true?

How about that 'heroic' Chuck Goudie, running plates on Chicago residents in order to go to their house and accuse them of violating Chicago's Handgun ban. If he is so concerned why not go down into the 'hood' and ask the armed punks there where they got their guns?

Meanwhile, he's safely ensconced in his plush home in Hinsdale which allows him to own all sorts of guns.

I heard a rumor that he might have invaded the privacy of at least one person he probably shouldn't have. Not that his mistakes got aired, of course.

MY WISH LIST FROM SANTA TO THE DEPARTMENT THIS YEAR....

1. realign the beats, it is outdated, some areas have grown, others have changed in the last 20 years....really.... my beat prob hasn't seen a beat car in days... and i don't even want to think about the 1st watch manpower. but with the new beats,but don't for get to give all the early cars to the females.

2. Get rid of goofy tru... its old. get rid of all these kush spots.(caps, exc) Taylor street hasn't been safer thanks to their lunch hour. and 14 people on the desk, 1 for the radios, 1 to enter contact cards, 1 to do a crash report & anwser phones. please don't be overworked. thats where the manpower would come from to work the extra beat cars. makes sense to me.

3. ppo's. why are so many already working the desk? a lot of them haven't even worked the street its discusting!! and why do so many get treated with royalty? 3rd watch, desk, sat nights off with C/U. and don't forget to send em to tac/gangs the day after their status.

4. if you don't have 5 years on. stay in 007,006,015, 011 exc. don't even think of working inside. after your 1st 5 years. then think of doing nothing in 016,020,019 exc. or work the desk.

5. give the fto's a chance to fail some of these kids. but make it fair. nuff said.

6. no more pod arrests with drinkers and loose cigarette bums. just flat out a waste of time. dispersal is anthother waste of time, no more events for curfew mission's anti violence missions, narcotic missions. stop with all the nonsense event numbers.

i hope "JODY" grants some of my christmas wishes.

On December 4, Cook County Commissioner William Beavers introduced the "Safe Streets/Weapons Registration Ordinance" (Section 58-130) to the Cook Co. Board.

Beavers is actually attempting to create a COUNTY gun registration and outlawing laser aiming devices also.

Among other things, he completely ignores the federal provisions of H.R. 218.

Daley's city gun registration is an unenforceable debacle yet "Big Hog Balls" wants to stir up the pot at the county level.

They can investigate and investigate. But unless the supervisor finds an infraction theres nothing that can be done to the PO

So if youre accused of excessive force unless the complainant signs theres nothing that can be done about that.

Now if the Sgt finds out that for example you took the guys money from his pocket while the incident happned then he/she gets a number and the officer has to answer

Most U of C officers will pin a crime on you just to look good. And although they do have powers of arrest, they DO NOT process their own arrests. Instead they call 911 and ask for Chicago Police to do their dirty work.

UIC does, as they are actual police employed by the state of Illinois. Any private university (DePaul, Loyola, U of C...etc) do not. They are merely campus security. Basically any university ran by the state has real police with real police powers. Private universities do not.

I don't know about Loyola University, but the State University Police are POLICE. All the major campuses (Carbondale, Champaign, UIC, etc) have police departments and they are full fledged police officers.

University Police have jurisdiction in any county that the University of Illinois owns or maintains property. (that's 100 of 102 counties)

That means they can make arrests, issue traffic tickets, make police reports and do anything a police officer does.

Hope that answers your question.

As a female who works non-cpd law enforcement, I can verify that most of the stereotypes have basis in facts! Its unfortunate but most of the boys in blue are monogomously impaired!

To the copper whose woman is "influenced" by "what she's heard about cop stereotypes. If she's so caught up in what she's heard as to what you're presenting directly in front of her, then I hate to break it to you son, but you need to lose that chick's phone number quick, fast & in a hurry! I know it may seem hard to find good women out there as a street cop in uniform, but there are plenty of women out there who will still RESPECT YOU and APPRECIATE you doing GOD'S CALLING.
If you ask me, she's the loser, not you, and you're wasting time with this insecure woman when you could be free to find someone who WANTS TO BE WITH YOU. Get moving!
By the way, do you go to church, young man? I met my wife in church. Good looking, great conversation, execellent cook, and (surprise) great sex too! If I hit the jackpot, you can too. Just stop wasting time on insecure people. She's just not into you, so move on.

Some thoughts on promotions.

5 years in patrol to be made sgt or det.
5 years as a sgt to become a lt.
5 years as lt to become a captain, or exempt.

This might give these bosses a little more experience and maturity to do the job the right way!

I heard a field lt on the air last week telling one of his cars to document in his GOCR that the ISP Crime Lab needed to put a rush on processing the evidence!!!

Hey boss, wise up. The dicks put the evidence request form in and a rush isn't going to happen because you wrote it the report. Unless the case is some sort of heater, you'll have to wait your turn (months maybe a year to get it worked up, but you knew that because you were a dick right boss?

""I agree and I'm a PPO. I hate when I look at tomorrows sheets and see that I'm working the desk. I know a lot of PPO's feel the same way. Most of us would rather be on the street""

Believe me, we would rather you be on the street learning too, however, when we are short manpower (almost all the time), you can't put a PPO on a car by himself, so the PO goes out, and the PPO is on the desk. Not to say this is true everywhere, every watch, but where I am this is how it works. You should see our sheets for tomorrow!
Stay Safe.

_______________________________________

I am a Sgt. We are not perfect, and there is no group anywhere in which all members are without fault. I do know this, there are a lot of us out there who do our best to work WITH, not over the PO's. If I don't know a particular answer, I will figure it out WITh you, or if I have to, FOR you. I have seen posts here which state that "make the Sgt make the decision, thats why he gets the big money", and that is correct. So if I have to make a decision that is not popular, take it as it is-a work decision, not personal. I also have been around long enough to remember when you did not call a supervisor so much, and I'm not complaining, call me anytime, I became willing to meet that responsibility when I took the test. That being said, when a person became a copper, they took on a responsibility also. Such as-show up on time, look and act professionally, obey orders, follow the rules and give some work for the pay. If you could see some of the reports that we see, the second grade level handwriting, the grammar mistakes, misspellings, and the mistakes that are made in omitting information, you would laugh, just like we do. But return one of those reports to the author, to have it corrected, and boy are we the jagoff. Again, I took all of this on voluntarily, and I will continue to do it and I will continue to give ducks when I can, at (whether you believe it or not) personal career risk from inspectors and WC's, (and I will TAKE a duck now and then too). I will make small corrections to those same reports, and listen to the complainers and backstabbers who want to talk badly about their fellow officers. I will continue to back you up at your calls, even when you think that I am there to "dog" you. I will kick doors, puts cuffs on guys, and have dude ride the lightening when needed. I will advise, encourage and offer praise. I will write up awards when called for, but I won't put 6 people on one gun pinch. Then when my time on this job ends, I will walk proudly into the sunset, knowing that I did the best that I could, just like 99% of the police do. The public might not appreciate what you PO's do, but I do.

Have a safe tour. See you out there.

------------------------------------------
Since we're giving orders here, this is what I want you to do after taking communion:

Reflect on your own life, think of whatever negative things you've done to yourself and others during the course of your daily life. You're not so perfect, are you? Make up an excuse, it'll be alright again. Take good care of that guilt you feel. Those other people are so much more wrong than you, aren't they?

Possibly not, after all...

Think of how self-righteous the statement you made on this blog is. It's filled with judgement, judgement against many thousands of people. You ought to be ashamed for that, and ashamed for thinking that you have the only correct idea of what God is and that you can go around telling people how to manage their relationship with God.

You come across as though you have a narrow, narrow grasp of humanity and religion and are the one who should be taking extra care with how you proceed in this life.

I do not envy you.

FBI Gets Involved In Miami Crime Statistics Probe
From CBS4.com, December 6

MIAMI, FL – The investigation into the City of Miami's crime stats reached a new level this week. The FBI is stepping in, and they want to know if the police department's top brass is encouraging officers to manipulate their reports in order to make the department look better.

But the police officials allege Police Chief Timoney is obstructing the investigation.

The Miami Police Department has been under investigation over charges it falsified crime reports to make the city appear safer than it really is......

As a Sgt., I'd love to see the majority of officers on my watch
a) show up on time
b) wear a presentable uniform DAILY
c) write a report that reads as if it was written by a college educated officer
d) make the corrections on poorly constructed reports in a timely manner when I ask them to, instead of stuffing it away somewhere until review deems it "delinquent."
e) just write the damn report instead of finding a thousand reasons to get out of it.
f) just make the damn arrest, instead of leaving a bad situation to boil over again, requiring another car to be dispatched to do the job the FIRST car should have done properly in the first place.
g) get gas at the beginning of the tour, instead of waiting until the shit hits the fan near the end of the tour.
h) keep the BS on the air to an absolute minimum.
i) stop coming to me with a barrage of "parking lot damage" you "discovered" when everybody knows you can't drive worth a damn.
j) not blame me for your having to attend traffic school because you've destroyed every dept. vehicle you've held the keys to.
k) not blame me when you missed court from a notification I personally gave you weeks ago.
l) consistently turn low boil situations into raging fires, requiring me to show up with the taser to put them out
m) return to your assignment locations to calm down the citizens you've MF'd (again!)
I'm sure lots of posters here will never admit to being any of the examples of what I've presented above. NO ONE on this job is beyond reproach. Some need a little improvement, others need a lot. I will back you to the wall, but there has to be something there worth backing. I've seen reports turned in that would make a 4th grader blush from the errors.
Merry Christmas, everyone, and stay alert out there.

Random question from a non-cop:

Do university police (UIC, U of C, Loyola, etc.) have the same police powers as CPD? I've seen a couple UIC cars pulling over citizens, albeit near campus, but couldn't help but think they were glorified security guards? Am I wrong? Do they have the same pull as you?

Loyola University was made a sanctioned police department about two years ago. They have about 10 armed police officers who went for all the State required training. The University's jurisdiction comes from the City Council and is defined in an ordinace that primarily is located on Loyola property or the 4-5 surrounding streets. The sworn Loyola officers have the same powers as CPD officers, but only within that defined area.
