Explain Please


Seen at Midway Airport, so it probably paid for with Federal grants. Anyone know the purpose? Function? Cost?

OH WHO KNOWS!!? It's just another fairytale attempt by this department to try and act like a professional, legitimate law enforcement agency.

Everyone knows if shit ever hits the fan here, we're all FUCKED! And that "truck" or whatever you want to call it will never be seen or heard from...

instead some broke ass 1980s converted ambulance painted all black will pull up and some guys who resemble bosses will stroll out with brick phones.

Mean while, no one will know what to do, the blackberry's will fail, there will be no backup plan, all bosses will be afraid to make a decision for fear of what Jody may or may not do, the blog will have posters with all the answers, crazy lou will tell you what he woulda done back in nam, radioes will be chirping after 2 hours, PDTs wont work for any of 1000 reasons, KK will be taking pics near ground zero part 2, Lt Scotch breath will be at TRs, Tobias will get busted down to patrolman in "the deuce" because old time bosses still think there is anything to do there, hair gel will be hair gel, mass chaos will ensue because power is out and the blow dryers in the districts arent working, IAD will be setting up road blocks to jam coppers, Abatte gets blamed for the attack in the local media and the polski bar footage plays a record 10,000 times in 1 day, the offenders get pulled over and are arrested by TRU not for the attack, but because there was weed in the car, 019 lockup refuses because one of them has 7 pieces of paper on them (only to find out later the paper was the plan of attack), D/C Gorgas orders them to be RWOC because he is an idiot, and then we get the olympics... This "truck" pulls up, being driven by Ardelean, and out jumps Finnegan, Suchoki, Sherry and Herrera, being lead by Burge and Majinowski!

That is what I think

FYI, just so SCC & everyone else knows before the rumors begin to go crazy. This used to be a CFD vehicle and the purpose at the airports, which I think is true, is that you need this type of vehicle to have maximum access through runways and the terrain of the aitports to get to an emegency in a timely time frame.

Do not blow this out of wack.

This is a correct use for once of department resources. Of course this should also be used across the board.

All law enforce agencies can purchase these vehicles for $1 from armored car companies. Armored car logo must be removed and the department that uses it must put their dept name on it. When police dept is done with vehicle it must be returned to company it was purchased from. Many dept use them for swat and entry teams.

The one the guy above is talking about is available through the TRU, if anyone bothered to look at a Daily Bulletin in the last three weeks they'd see this to be true. The picture SCC posted is NOT the armored car donated to TRU ( which as someone stated above will be used to carry traffic cones...in an armored vehicle...I couldn't make that up if I tried ). Both airports have a Hummer that were bought with Homeland Security money after 9/11/01. You are about 6 years late with this report.

Carry on.

Alot of stories here but the truth is ....

Originally the hummer was part of the Chicago Fire Depts. equipment at O'Hare and Midway. Squad 7 had one and it was know as Squad 7A. Midways was known as 637. Both were actually mini fire engines. Both had pumps and hose on them. When the dept. received the new Ford "Mini-Pumpers" both Hummers were retired. Evidentually the CPD took them over and converted them for use at the airports.
At O'hare the Hummer is black I think (it's been awhile since I've seen it) But the pump area is open like it's made for people to stand in. The Midway one seems to be made to haul stuff. Anyway yeah I'm sure Homeland Security had something to do with it too.
Just thought I'd add my 2 cents.

That truck as been sitting there collecting dust,if you look at the rear tire it's flat.To what purpose/function does this vehicle serve.More city waste,but we can't get a decent raise around this city,has been pointed out on this blog numerous times: Becareful Chicago you just may get the police department you are asking for.Furthermore I predict a future where no one wants the join this department because of poor Management and the hostile treatment from the department,the city leaders and from the citizens themselves. Stop treating your police officers less than second class citizens.

Each airport has one. It had something to do with the bomb squad I think. Last time I saw one at Ohare, it had 3 flat tires. It looked kinda beat up too. I heard numerous stories about Ohare personnel taking it out for "Joyrides" and beating it up in the construction areas inside the perimiter. As for readiness, I doubt that this thing can make it to the gas pumps and back. Judging from the condition it looks to be in it is about as ready as the rest of the Airport units if the big one hits. FYI Airport units are the biggest dogs on the department. Just look at their uniforms and equiptment and that will tell you how much they care.

Here is the boring truth: CFD had a small pump on it for brush fires at O'Hare. They didn't need it any more so it went to Unit 050. It carried Bomb Squad robot on the back. Now Bomb Squad has their new truck, so the Hummer was moved to Midway. There is only one Hummer and it has nothing to do with the Brink's truck. It is owned by Dept. of Aviation and has nothing to do with federal grants.

Now, feel free to speculate how it might be used under the new administration....

Security at O'Hare and Midway is such a joke. Got people in long lines waiting to be checked in with all types of luggage that can carry enough explosive to bring the entire place. Yet they are waiting in line and gain access into the buildings and then told to get in line. A Bomber's dream come true. Why take out a plane when you can take out more passengers waiting in line. This not to mention all the vehicles that pull up to the front door of each terminal, reminds me of Oklahoma ready to happen.

There should be off sight loading and unloading of passengers. Off sight screening of passengers and luggage and then the transport of passengers and luggage to the terminal in secure vehicles.

Smoke and mirrors, smoke and mirrors.
