Inspectors

We're getting all sorts of stories, via comments and via e-mail that the Inspectors are out trying to justify their existence again, writing up dozens, sometimes many dozens of violations in a single sitting. We received word from a few people about thirty (yes, 30) violations written up in a single roll call.

A few examples we've heard quoted here, in e-mails and in bars (we swear, we were only drinking seltzer water):
  • A certain Inspector who sits at 26th Street and logs the time a Squadrol leaves after dropping of prisoners for the AM court call. When the wagon doesn't come up clear immediately, he writes them up. It doesn't matter if the wagon is heading back to 016 or 006 - both about a 45 minutes ride away. He writes them up as if they could have responded to an emergency job in seconds rather than being on the other side of the world.
  • Another Inspector who follows Canine Officers around and writes them up for leaving their cars running and unattended as a violation of state law. Never mentioned is the fact that leaving the car running with heat or A/C is necessary for the dog not to suffer or die. Or the fact that all Canine vehicles are equipped with the same safety devices used by State Troopers to leave their cars running on the sides of the highway.
  • Yet another who rolls on 10-1 calls and writes up anyone he can find not wearing a hat - as if a hat would help anyone in an emergency situation. Decorum falls by the wayside when someone is fighting.
We're sure there are hundreds more stories. Inspector is one of the first positions J-Fed ought to look into cutting. Sergeants, Lieutenants and Captains ought to be held accountable by their respective Commanders for the appearance standards of their watches. And they ought to lead by example...but that might be too much to ask.

They are now coming down on any PO's asking for travel time to lunch.



So if you work in a ghetto area with no place to eat, and ask to go out of district, you better be able to do it in 30 mins....





Or just learn to like flaming hots and blue pop.

Broken Windows theory applied to roll calls. Start with the little things and before long, the major scandals go away. Will it work? Probably not, but you have to admit that many of our coworkers look like absolute SHIT! That includes white shirts! Would it kill some of you smelly M-Fer's to wash your uniform once a period? Forget shoe sines, I've seen guys show up in flip flops!!!!

The easiest part of our day should be dressing yourself according to the rules. Hell, even the guys at McDonald's have clean uniforms or they get sent home!!! Why should someone making $60k+ of tax payers money be exempt?

No funk, no food stains, and buy a shirt that fits before one of those buttons pops off and kills a fellow officer like a bullet!!!

Inspectors serve a useful purpose, but it seems a shitload of them lost their common sense when they put that gold star on.

Inspector Maratto is prime example of a good inspector. Unfortunately, I can't think of any others.

There are groups and forces in our society which are trying to turn being a Police Officer from a calling into a career and there are Officers out there which treat this as a mere job. A lot can be said about this transition, but in the end; very few people would risk their lives for their career and nobody risks losing their house for a job. A society gets the Police it deserves.

I have trouble understanding why any Police officer makes arrests.

If an inspector responds to a 10-1 and does not exit his/her vehicle get a CR on them. They are still the Police and are required by law to act as such. If they respond on any in progress call, they can NOT sit down the block to time you and take no action. We had this problem with Manley, many, many years ago and after a few CR's he went away.

I worked in 015 in the mid/late
80s. That was during the "drug ring" era sponsered by the stupidintendent, d/c, tact lt, and head of iad.
Ya had no place to park,no showers,
and it was call after call from start to finish for unclouted patrolscum. But THEY all knew it, so at least u got travel time for lunch. They'd let us go way into Oak Park or to North Ave to the infamous 025(curtaintown).
So ya dont even have that anymore in the ghetto? Boy, these "toe the line" reformists/bosses can go f*k

Squadrols have been notorious in most, if not all of the Districts for taking way too much time to make transports, especially those out of their assigned areas. I don't have a problem with Inspectors monitoring when they arrive and leave a particular location. Those squadrols are needed in their districts, by the patrolmen who handle a majority of the calls. Wagons show up as backup, and anyone who's been around for a little while knows that it's worse than taking a carcass from a lion to get the wagon crews to get out of the car and walk over to where they are needed. Blast the Inspectors if you want, but the District supervisors can't watch or supervise their people who are out of the District, and that's where the Inspectors can come in handy.
If most of us were doing the job as it was laid out for us when we got hired, this wouldn't even be an issue.

Several years ago I remember an inspector trying to write up several officers leaving a 10-1. The officers did not have their hats on. The inspector got his in the end. The Field Lt got a CR number on the inspector for not responding to an officer in need.

The idiot inspector put in his write up that he saw the officers leave their vehicles without their hats on. The Lt in his CR put that if the inspector saw the officers leave their cars he should have as well to help an officer or at a minimum supervise the incident.

I don't believe for 1 second that an inspector would be that dumb again. I know of another incident that happened in 007 very similar to my incident where the officers told him to shove it and several officers got a CR on the inspector. 10-1 = help, this is the only occassion where inspectors might have to let a rule slide. Officer safety is still 1 at the end of the day.

For those who you hear always asking for travel time for lunch, why must they have to go several miles out of their district to eat? What about a bag lunch? I've even heard them ask for travel time to a place in their own district. I've even heard them go all the way across another district for lunch,015 eating at Harlem and Lawrence?

The Wagon issue, they are required to notify the zone of a change in location, when they leave 26th st. they should let the zone know they are leaving, that is not the same as coming clear, but it is, regardless of its usefulness, a requirement... for anyone changing locations.

Who was that POS inspector that got fired in the late 80s for being a stalker? I believe he was the same POS that wrote me up during the great Flood of about 87.
Im one of the few guys that made it to traffic ct that morning; the whole city was flooding; viaducts, basements, streets,etc. I got to court and was going up that escalator and that j*goff was waiting at the top. He wrote me up for having my wet jacket open exposing my star and nametag. Bout a year later I saw his name in the paper for stalking a woman.
If he got fired, I wonder if they "backdoored" him into some other clout job/pension. His name

Otherwise Inpectors' Reynolds, Ryan, and even Too Tall Smith could be gems who would merely inform your sgt. that you were down on a personal an extra twnty-five minutes at a Polish restaurant-remember that one, Dean? Or upon noticing the absence of a front license plate wrote it up "for information only". The plate was re-affixed the next day. I have no problem with them monitoring response times, or guys far off their posts without first clearing thenselves. Thats where beat integrity and officer safety truly start.

Evidently you haven't been on the job too long. You're probably the first one to call for a wagon when you have a female mental that only weighs 110 pounds. The next time there's a DOA and the removal service is taking too long to show up,put on some gloves and help scrape that DOA from the floor!!! Otherwise handle your own calls.

Let it be said with the up most confidence that inspectors will continue to do their job. And since there are five assigned to the field, even less at any giving time of the day. Nothing new or unusual is going on except that perhaps specialized units might deserve more visits. Hey isn’t time that “they” enjoy a little MORE attention now and then. After all, most of our notorious misfits were working in special units, tact and gang teams. It is there where those “working officers” have way too much leisure time on their hands and lack appropriate supervision by having been knighted “Sir Clouted!” Hey, maybe the Detective Division could use a little more attention too. Although they tend to show more maturity, still they should not be neglected either since they run FOP.

It has always puzzled me how some people can come to work each day looking like a salad. Even if a person is a little outside the weight to height guidelines, they can still be clean and well outfitted. I alway notice the white shirts [AKA beige shirts] who display remnants of their lunch on their fronts or the detective in A3, who appears to be a used car sales person, with no hand cuffs and a snubnose .38 on his ankle.
I know the inspectors love to beat up the TRU unit people and fast district tact cops for the infamous "open cuff case", but at least these police may actually put those cuffs on a bad guy/girl during their tour. Sounds like trying to be prepared to do some police work, kind of a dying art these days by all accounts.

Empty cubicles and offices, people out on shopping sprees, medical abusers who aren't anywhere to be found, you name it.

But nooooo. These jagoffs are trying to actually jam up the only people in the department who show up for work, in uniform, and hold themselves responsible to the public.

Sounds like Weis wants to get rid of exempt positions but also hold the beat cop to the 'small things' and to be honest, a uniform standard has fallen a bit by the wayside and might actually help morale. That is, if it's enforced uniformly. There were a couple of 1st watch 018th district PO's that were ordered to get haircuts and 'counselled' about this that wound up having to stand roll call next to another PO that that braids tied in a bun so big it looked like a second head. Absolutely no way it could be fit 'comfortably under' the dress uniform cap. That definately wont lead to good morale on the watch.
By the way... I thought the hair standards were applicable to both men and women, meaning womens hair has to be off the collar too. Sgt MM and Lt MS might want to take a look before admonishing PO's about the same thing.

nspectors serve a useful purpose, but it seems a shitload of them lost their common sense when they put that gold star on.

Inspector Maratto is prime example of a good inspector. Unfortunately, I can't think of any others.


Wrong! they serve no useful purpose they do what the WC should be doing. Who are you kidding. Its a make work job only period, to take care of those who are connected. As far as Maratto he is a Pussy two faced fucker and will act like your friend yet when he wants he will fuck you in the ass. No self respecting officer, would go out and fuck over us for BS Yet cover for the Rislys on this department. give me a break.

Besides, the K9 should leave the car running so the doggie can stay warm or have the a/c on during the summer.

If you're gonna have someone enforce our dress code then I'd rather have the inspector do it more than our sgt, Lt. etc. Think about it. When an inspector is in the district he is usually there for a couple of days and then he's gone for weeks, sometimes months. If your supervisors were in charge of enforcing the dress code it would be like having an inspector in your district every damn day! Don't think that just because you have a couple of soda pops with the sgt. from time to time that he/she won't write you up if they had to. If it means keeping their ass out of the doghouse, they will!

About four years ago while on Mid-nights in 011 an 011 dist. car observed a hot car traveling e/b on Madison/kedzie. The vehicle traveled around the block and ended up almost in the same area. The driver resisted being placed into custody to the point of being taken down to the ground,i look up and there sitting three car lenghts from us is a brown unmarked CPD car while we are still on the ground attempting to handcuff this muff,the "officer" sat in his vehicle until we had the subject handcuffed (by the way) he contnued to give us a hard time while being escorted to the beat car to be transported to 011 for processing. As soon as the offender was placed into a squadcar out of the brown unmarked steps an inspector, flagged down all officers on scene and proceeds to write us all up for not wearing our hats upon exiting our vehicles to place the subject in custody. One officer began to ask the inspector why did he not help us or at least call for help. All officers complied with his requests for beats and badge numbers and immediately relocated to 011 to inform w/c Capt. Dahlberg what had transpired. Needless to say we never heard/receive any paperwork from that write up. Remember fellow officers they are still police officers and are suppose/required to assist you if they onview an officer in trouble or in need of help.

Lt. Lupe Pena was never a merit Sgt. He made it before meritorious became a part of the promotion process. And if Lupe did make Lt. meritoriously, he certainly deserved it. He worked hard in 014 as a Sgt., was a fair man, and maintained a decent team in SOS. He's not part of any of THAT drama. Lupe also is very well educated and as capable as any boss out there today, probably better than many. Can't fault him for wanting to get back into a unit. In the future of the CPD, many supervisors will do a tour in IAD. I personally think it's necessary today, to know how that unit works, and what they're looking for when they conduct an investigation. I think it could also be helpful on a patrol level, bringing back that knowledge to the Districts. You might observe a pattern going on, and might, just MIGHT, be able to nip it in the bud, before it becomes front page fodder for the Scum-Times. And if Lupe wants to be a Capt., he wouldn't have to go to IAD to become one. Most of the Capts. are made from District Lts. who bother to complete and submit Capts. application packets, when the Job asks for them. Most Lts. are happy with the hat they are wearing, and it really IS the BET JOB ON THE JOB.

You gotta be an IDIOT!! Paint your supervisors at the district level as being the bad guys?? How much uniform allowance a year do we get? Is it really that hard to follow the orders that have been in place for years, to be adhered to? It's not that hard to look decent at roll-call. Inspectors are jerk-offs for the most part, but the supervisors in the district want no headaches. Dress according to the regulations & you won't have any problems. Doesn't sound too difficult to me....

Back in the mid 90's I responded to a 10-1 passing what appeared to be and inspector. Figureing he was unfamiliar with the area I noticed he was following me to the 10-1. Happy because I knew that all the working cars were tied up on the other side of the District.

The car that called the 10-1 wa 2 females fighting a M/1 506, 150lbs or so dressed in boxer shorts in the middle of winter. PCP muscles, and slippery from sweat. We fought/wrestled and and finally another car showed up. The Inspector your wondering? Well he never got out of his car. He was logging our cars and who didnt have a hat on.

Fast forward about an hour. I and my partner get the dreaded go in and see the W/C call. Upon arrival to the W/C's office I see the W/C and the inspector. The inspector identifies me as one of the officers he observed with no hat on. I ask where, and he reciets the address. I AGREE I wasnt wearing a hat responding to the 10-1 call. I looked at the W/C as he told me that a hat is part of the uniform, but he understood why I wasnt wearing one at the time. The inspector said he was still gonna write me up, and I said OK you have a job to do.

It was at that time I looked at the W/C and demanded that a CR# was obtained against the inspector. The inspector turned redder that an Irishman whos been in sun way to long...

On what grounds the Inspector demanded! Cowardice, fail to take action, and after I call the FOP Im sure they will add more to it. The W/C blew-up saying one of my cars calls a 10-1 and you just sit in the car and watch to see whos wearing a hat? The inspector just looked at him neither confirming or denying the acusation. The W/C looked at me said "Officer for your information I WILL initiate 2 CR#'s 1 for you listing the other officers on scene as witness's, and the other from me listing you as a witness". I was then dismissed and never heard about it again other that the W/C telling me he knew the Inspector years prior as PO's and indeed he was a coward.

Are all Inspectors like that? Lord I hope not. Do we need them? Hell NO. If the sgt's, Lt's etc do their jobs we really dont need them.

Had a lot of fun on this job gonna miss it...less than 8000 hours to go

Moratto is a great inspector. He will gig you if you're blatant, like no sticker on your car, but uniform discrepancies? "Kid, go fix that" is all it takes to remedy the situation. When he stops by 011, he gets a hot car once a period. Comes from his old days as being an auto dick.

Last year, he got a hot ride on 011 with heads in it. Called it in, calm as could be, two arrests and a hot car. Officers offered to put him in box one, he laughed it off, but they put him down assisting anyway. Sergeant on days writes up the Honorable Mention for PSMV - there's Moratto's name on the HM for everyone to see. Wonder how he felt with that sly bit of ball busting? Great guy.

A female inspector arrived on the scene and went looking for movers.Well the dicks arrive and were not wearing their vest(hot summer day)well she wrote all three of them up. The e.t. sgt. arrived to log her e.t. I warned her about the inspector gigging people and told her to check her self out before entering the tape. Thank god because she forgot she was wearing stud earings.
The best part of the story is that the inspector upon arriving on the scene had parked her vehicle on the wrong side of the street when there was plenty of parking for her to park the proper way. I wanted to write her a parker but my sgt. told not to start any wars with the inspectors office. I agreed and didnt. But if they want to start some shit, guy use the pen, I know I will from now on.

The former beat 901 won't say shit to the sergeant and inform the WC that he has three infraction reports that he will write up. The same guy that will do check off well away from the sergeant so the sergeant cannot say anything in defense of his people. I know this for a fact, as big bird has pulled this on me a few times.

I have to ask, I heard of a F/2 insp. who had written up to 2 po's for being legally parked along a curb for no seat belts. If true can you post this mensa member's name!

There is no way in hell an Inspector is writing guys with no hats at 10-1 calls.

The entire uniform standard needs to be overhauled. Some ideas....

1. No more turtlenecks or"dickies". Wear a TIE!

2. No more cargo pants/BDU's. 80/20's! And no JC Penney's cheaters either!

3. No more knit hats or baseball caps. Regular seasonal issued uniform hat.

4. No more gym shoes. There's quite a selection of modern footware available that looks professional and is comfortable to wear.

5. The sweaters. Okay, they're warm but IMO they are not that attractive when worn as on outer garment. And at nearly a $100 a pop it's an expensive item to replace. I know of a few guys that have gone through several because of tears, rips, etc.

6. Get a haircut, shave, no ear rings, braids, corn rows, and if ANYONE has excessive tattoo's on their arms, make them wear a long sleeve shirt year round!

I just saw an inspector at 26cal walking in the building drinking a coffee and no hat. Didn't get his name tag too busy avoiding eye conatact. WTF. but i'm sure he is going to gig someone for some bullshit. by the way inspectors in case you did not read the uniform order the sweater must be tucked in, if i have to endure the uncomfort so can you. But then youd have to get Jared's old pants.

are they going to start writing each other up for working four hour days. once saw an old time captain tell one to get the fuck out of my station.


I live down the street from an inspector who parks his vehicle in the garage for about 6 hours then goes into the Dist to write you guys up. He says its a beautiful thing.

Whenever you spot an inspector, ask him to assist you on a street stop. Before he has an opportunity to respond, you and your partner jump out of your car.

The second you get out of your car, yell to the inspector, "White t-shirt, blue jeans, took off through the alley." Then you and your partner start running down the alley calling in this "chase."

When you're out of the inspector's sight get on the radio. "Inspector, inspector, he's headed right towards you."

Stay out of the inspector's sight while you are searching for the offender. If the inspector hasn't left already, he shortly will.

Throughout the remainder of your shift keep calling for the inspector on the radio to see if he captured your offender.

If the inspector comes back, do it all over again.

The standards are
Men: hair cannot touch the collar
Women: hair cannot be longer than the bottom of the collar.
A slight difference, hence the women don't have to look like men.

oh come on! we all know a lot of them look more like men than a lot of the men do! (especially those two)

to: 1/21/2008, 10:06 am....1) contradictions ?...I didn't think so; 2) inspectors are only following orders?....like the SS in Germany said, well, we only helped the people get on the train, we didn't know where the train was going....give me a fu@@ing break; look at the entire picture! the CPD is broken; low morale, a non-functioning FTO program, a dysfunctional and corrupted promotional system, an ineffective and corrupted hiring system, many districts not only overwhelmed with calls for service but undermanned (a situation which, by the way, leaves many citizens waiting (sometimes hours) for service (but if their wait doesn't show up in the daily homicide/shooting numbers, then....so what?), management's undying and undeserved loyalty to a specialized unit (TRU), that does nothing but show up in a particular area, make some bullshit arrests, and then claim great success at the weekly DOC meetings, unit and district personnel assignment and field staffing inequities that would make Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles look like management geniuses, and, perhaps more importantly, the corrosive nature and corruptive influences of political clout in the CPD (the politics of race, ethnicity, gender, friendship, family relationships, Democratic political clout or connections, sexual relations, etc., etc.) If an inspector had any courage, he or she would start to document and investigate any of the aforementioned (instead of saying, it's not my job, or, where's your handcuff case, or....) I guess it's easier to say, it's not my job...

I remember the days when we WANTED the inspectors to be a bunch of clouted MFers. That way you could just work a busy district (in the dark) or the projects (day or night) and never see one.

Let's get PIMP E and write everyone up for every little infraction known and unknown! It's not going to change this in the long run. This is short term Bullshit. How about when the President came in a couple weeks ago and the order stated the uniform of the day. Now the same stupie head exempt stated the were too many variations of the uniform. WTF? You sir need to retire! Does C.W. have that degree or not?

Well said my friend. You are either a dick knob or a company man. Very few things in life are more classy than a clip on tie. It oozes respect just like the saucer cap. I always wondered what a 1940's cab driver felt like. You must feel invincible with you clip on tie, cap, polished boots and straight pants when yelling at some poor illegal for parking in the alley.

I got no problem with Inspectors writing up Dets. for not wearing vests. If I have to wear one on the street, everyone else should too. No exceptions.

I agree, some wagons stay down too long on transports to 26th and cal, but others respond to bs transports for tact teams who would be better off and safer taking their bs hype arrests from the projects themselves

*************************
But it ISN'T his/her job to investigate anything at all, it is their job to MAKE OBSERVATIONS, that is ALL... they do not decide what if any disciplinary action will be taken, nor are they notified of what that action is... they make observations, and report them... that is their job.. Inspectors don't investigate... get your head around that. They don't do the CR investigation, in fact they don't initiate CR's...
Why should they investigate things that aren't in their job description? Isn't there enough things for them to observe? The items you are listing should be paid attention to, but you are barking up the wrong tree when you pin them on the inspectors. Try going up a little higher on the food chain...

Actually, the ADS's should be addressing these issues, but that job has degenerated into a situation where they just answer calls. All their other responsibilities have disappeared into the mist or something, but they don't fulfill the mission they once did.

We were on a traffic stop last ngt at Division and Laramie last ngt with three shitheads in a car when an inspector pulls up. Me and my partner are back in our car running names when this jagoff Inspector (Salava, I'm pretty sure thats his name or atleast its close) comes up and starts asking us all these questions about our uniform and all our info for some minor uniform stuff (which he wrote us up for). My point here is not to complain abt being written up its to complain abt how this idiot totallty compromised me and my partners saftey, not to mention his own, by feeling the need to gig us while were in the middle of our stop, taking our attention away from these shitheads. I've heard other p.o.'s say they have had similar situations. What the fuck is wrong with these inspectors?? Do your jobs but wait till its safe you dumbass. And watch out for this Inspector Salava, hes unsafe.....

Word is our LT on days was leaving to be an inspector. It kind of pissed some of us off because that was gonna leave us with Capt. Sybil. He probably would have been a cool inspector as he seems to be the voice of reason crying out in the wilderness here...BUT....rumor is somebody killed it...possibly Commander Gyro

a few years ago, an inspector waited for me and my partner to leave El Gallo at 26/keeler, putting a 45 minute lunch case on us, not to mention no bt. tag and no stars on outer garments when we contested that he was full of shit on his claim. When he finished getting our info, he sat in his car doing his report. Dumbass had parked in the bus stop, so I wrote him a parker, knocked on his window and handed him the ticket. He told me I couldn't write him because he was engaged in "official duties". I told him there were instructions on the back to contest the ticket. Got the call from the W/C minutes later. Got chewed out, but refused to do the paper to non-suit the ticket. True story. And we beat the lunch beef with documents provided by the Audy Home that provided a time-line and a helluva creatively written To-From. Moral of the story: fuck these inspectors; especially if the gig may be the one to cost you a day or two. Never make it easy for these bastards to hurt you, and make them look stupid if you get the opportunity.
