New Bureau

We were actually hoping by "decentralizing," J-Fed was going to eliminate a Bureau, namely Strategic Deployment. The only thing there is TRU, Deployment Operations and the old Special Functions Group.

There's no reason that these things can't be rolled back into the Patrol Division Bureau of Patrol. The only reason they were stripped out in the past was some pissing match between Maurer and Starks and a couple of other gold stars fighting over who controlled what.

This Bureau of Professional Standards though....there are only two units in it:
  1. Education and Training
  2. Internal Affairs
Both are headed by Assistant Deputy Superintendents which is the level directly below all of yesterday's movement. Like we said yesterday, expect a few days, maybe a few weeks of calm and then a whole bunch of new movement among the Assistant Deputy Superintendents and the Deputy Chiefs. Maybe even a Chief.

About 4 years ago the Education and Training Division was placed under the Superintendent's Office because people from the detective division and other units would just blow off the Academy A.D.S. and not bother showing to teach classes.(A.D.S. Shaver [Daley's guy] at the time)

In order to maintain control, the Superintendent took control.
NOW.. it's OUT of his hands AGAIN.

This department is like a fuckin' roller coaster going straight to hell.

Let me off NOW!

if it is true that they are getting rid of the street deputies, hopefully they will not make the mistake of letting Pat McNulty leave before his time. he has saved many a copper and truly cares about the policeman and the police dept.
he may enjoy his green bottles but it has never interfered with him doing his job and doing it to the highes degree of professionalism...

Hey SCC, we need your sleuthing expertise. Per the dozen or so text messages I received this past Saturday night, rumor was the following: the new boss had dui roadblocks in 008 & 022, as well as around Dugans to hook up coppers living in/driving thru those districts while over-served. A ploy by a scheming copper to bolster the hatred for J-Fed? A half-truth of run-of-the-mill dui checkpoints to nab non-police drunks? If confirmed, it probably wouldn't suprise us who know what this prick is really about. Hell, maybe a sacrificial lamb (a ppo, perhaps?) getting ass-shafted at a dui checkpoint per the new Sup. would be exactly what the J-Fed Groupies need to see what time it really is. And to all you stupid motherfuckers singing the praises of this bastard just weeks into his tenure, please remove your heads from your ass post-haste. Anybody out there got concrete confirmation of this?? I almost hope it's true. And if it is, I'm glad I stayed in and got drunk tonight before I beat the old lady.

what about the new bureau of "WE'RE THE REAL POLICE" It's based out of 011. LOTS of hairgel. Deputy Chief of the new unit is the idiot in cowboy boots. Only requirement is every car, and they mean EVERY car brings in at least (1) 2092 a night. In the "WE'RE THE REAL POLICE" unit, you have to have less than 7 years on, wear hair gel, and swear to an oath that you do solemly swear that you are better than every other officer in the CPD. By just merely being there, YOU ARE BETTER! You know more than a guy with 30 years on, and with less than 7 you have seen and done it all! Afterall, "YOU ARE THE REAL POLICE!" You grind it out everyday, you put your livelihood at risk by fudging the paper here and there (dirty red says I found the money), but hey, no one will touch you "YOU'RE THE REAL POLICE!" You have more hair gel than Leno has jokes! You arent too concerned about your Mt Greenwood trailor, because, hey "YOU'RE THE REAL POLICE!" When the "sarge" says jump...YOU SAY HOW HIGH! In the bureau of "WE'RE THE REAL POLICE" we dont follow the rules... we get our dope pinch, ride it out, and fuck everyone else! We're a bit too naive to realize there are greener pasteurs. But we got it good! We're in the bureau of "WE'RE THE REAL POLICE"!

J-FED learned well from Capone and the Outfit! J-FED engineered his own Valentine's Day Massacre on Grau,Williams & Risley.
J-FED invidiously set these men up with his first exempt meeting which left everyone with the impression J-FED was going to be professional and non-political.
To embarrass Grau as J-FED
did was classless and unprofessional.
Williams was "used" to cut down Starks at the knees and met the same fate. Sorry Charley "You're only as good as
your last envelope."
As to Risley, he had to know he was going to go because he was Fat Phil's guy and eating companion.

J-FED did the little guy on the 5th floor's bidding and chose these top stops from the clout baby commander ranks.
You only make commander on this job if you have clout and get the blessing from the "little guy on the 5th floor."
J-FED did not scour the ranks of Captains and Lts. for those top spots.
Capt. John Farrel was the far SUPERIOR choice for BIS.
I don't know of any black Lts. or Captains that would be a superior choice for 1st Dep.
I also don't know of any female hispanic captains or lts. that would have been a hands down better choice for Chief of Patrol.
Perhaps some other names can be addressed here for those three top jobs.
J-FED showed his true sneaky colors. Remember what he allegedly stated about another agent that had criticized J-Fed. Those words were "Let's take him out!"
J-FED's new nickname is "Take him out Jody!"

I think ADS Egan will lose some units in R&D like Policy and Procedure, and Research Administration, along with the Personnel Performance Suite responsibility....These all directly affect the "culture" of the department, which an article said he wanted to control. So, his friend will be gaining some units from BAS, DS O'Keefe will be loosing some.

For those complaining about Grau being kicked out, remember that when you are exempt you serve at the pleasure of the supt. whoever that might be. The only job you are entitled to is the rank you earned, lt. You know when you take that big promotion and raise that you could be put back or have to leave when a new supt comes in. Grau could have gone back to lt. but it would screw with his pension.

Wait for the bloodletting at the State's Attorney's Office when Devine's replacement comes in. All the supervisors in the office have to tender their resignation to the new person. And they don't necessarily get to go into the courtroom, they can all be out on their asses.

Is there anyone out there that made Sgt. and Lt. on their own (without clout, merit) that went on to become a boss? Are there any? If there are any, they should be given a long look to lead this Dept. Can anyone name 1 person who achieved a rank above Capt. who was never a meritoriously promoted Sgt. or Lt. first?

Thank God! I wasnt sure how I was going to make it but that goes to show you all: Wies understands and is there for us.
On another topic: the DUI roadblocks... I call bullshit on this one. It makes no sense to target police on roadblocks, and to be honest, whats the difference where the roadblocks are set up anyway? 022, 008, 010.. who gives a shit. You dont get jammed up if you dont go out and get shitfaced and start driving anyway, right? Plus, what would Wies have to gain as opposed to what he would have to lose when a copper gets needlessly DUI'ed at his direction. Maybe he's never been the police but Im sure someone has had to tell him how many times a PO pulls over a drunk (that hasnt been involved in an accident and isnt a belligerant asshole) and gives said drunk the 'phone a friend' option rather than the 3 hours of paperwork. He's looking to boost morale from what he's been saying, not demoralize us or cause us not to trust him or any of his appointed bosses. Sounds like another BS rumor started by the 'conspiracy theorists' out there.

IAD cannot train recruits with DUI. IAD agents do not understand DUI process. Few white shirts actually know anything about DUI. Do not jump on new recruits. They are trying to fit in and learn the system. DUI checkpoints are manned by traffic personnel, not recruits. When a ODPO is brought in for possible DUI, the most IAD can do is administer a breath test. Of course the simple answer is not to drink and drive. Is that so hard?

The rank of deputy chief and ADS are political filler spots. They all should be eliminated. At most the patrol division may need two Deputy chiefs, north and south. Other wise all commanders can report directly to the division chiefs.

Why is a commander need in many spots, like the supes. office. If such a position is needed, at most it should be at the rank of captain.

The academy is another, why an ads and commander. A captain can handle
the top spot, with lts ruining a couple of the sections.

J-Fed. Get rid of the extra brass, it is not needed. If you want an example of two many chiefs and not enough Indians. Listen to the numerous radio tapes of some of the large protests. Boss after boss countermanding an order just issued by a different boss.

Also, at such events, there can only be ONE tactical commander. Left from right never knows what the plan is.

I guess these are the only districts off-duty officers go to after work to unwind. I agree with the posters who stated nobody has a right to drive impaired and possibly harm or kill another person but WTF? It's bad enough that the media dictates how we do our job but they (the media) were the originators of this bull with setting up cameras outside Dugans trying to railroad off-duty coppers, now our own department has lowered itself to the point of trying to entrap its' own. It's kind of sad reading these posts that you guys and gals don't get what is really going on. There is only one CPD. It doesnt matter if you work in 001, 004, 008, 022, 016, 019, 024, 018, a specialized unit or the infamous TRU, WE ARE ALL CPD. This constant inner fighting just goes to show that this department is falling apart in a fast spiraling motion. Instead of worrying about JFED or the midget man on the fifth floor, we need to join forces and once again become the best department in the country, THE CPD. Start being ONE Department and quit dividing the forces because by doing so, you are giving the haters just what they want. Quit putting up stuff on this site that could possibly cause another P. O. to get in trouble, you are only making I.A.D.'s job easier for them. Unite and be proud of who we are. WE ARE THE CPD!!!!! Stand up to the plate and start acting like it.

For those complaining about Grau being kicked out, remember that when you are exempt you serve at the pleasure of the supt. whoever that might be. The only job you are entitled to is the rank you earned, lt. You know when you take that big promotion and raise that you could be put back or have to leave when a new supt comes in. Grau could have gone back to lt. but it would screw with his pension.

Wait for the bloodletting at the State's Attorney's Office when Devine's replacement comes in. All the supervisors in the office have to tender their resignation to the new person. And they don't necessarily get to go into the courtroom, they can all be out on their asses.

He could stay as a Lt. for 6 ears. The pension is based on the best 4 years of your last ten years. He just couldnt go back to lt, loss of face.

Question. Can anyone name any boss above the rank of Lt. who at one time was NOT a meritoriously promoted Sgt. or Lt.? Capt.'s rank and above are all merit or politically motivated appointments. Is there anyone out there that made Sgt. and Lt. on their own (without clout, merit) that went on to become a boss? Are there any? If there are any, they should be given a long look to lead this Dept. Can anyone name 1 person who achieved a rank above Capt. who was never a meritoriously promoted Sgt. or Lt. first?

"Can anyone verify that IAD is watching cop bars and DUIing Officers when they leave?"

Yup its true, I talked to a high ranking officer a few days ago. They are also putting undercovers inside the bars. They can easily spot the PO's and sit and observe what is being drunk. When the PO's leave they call in a winner and the investigation is already established. The PO is stopped soon after and everything that has been drunk is already documented. The whole process is so successful, IAD is dedicating all of their extra manpower to these types of investigations. Be careful where and who you drink with!

This is a serious question. I know street deputies come out for shootings, officer-involved domestic violence and the like, but aren't they monitoring other stuff on midnights too?
***********************
Street deputies of today seem like they just answer calls... when that job was designed for them to be the representative of the Superintendent out in the field 24/7.. they used to attend roll calls, bring the superintendents message to the troops, and feedback to the supe. Also, they were responsible for writing up citizen commendations, and doing a facility check at department buildings, I wouldn't call it an "inspection" but just a check to see if things are running OK, and report back to the supe if something was amiss. Inspectors sometimes do this too, but sometimes when you need something fixed, a report from the ADS has a lot more weight and might actually be looked at.
ADS's also used to do roll call inspections etc. I haven't seen an ADS at a roll call since Tim Daly retired.
I think if their job gets eliminated, they have only themselves to blame...

The academy is another, why an ads and commander. A captain can handle
the top spot, with lts ruining a couple of the sections.
*************************
There is only an ADS there now, there hasn't been a commander there in about 4 years.
There used to be a commander and a captain there.
You could use both because the commander can deal with the Mayor's office, superintendents office, DS of patrol's office, while the captain handles the day to day operations of the academy.
You have 3 (was 4 at one time) sections, Recruit Training (which now includes the 4th of FTO section) In Service Training and Instructional Design/Quality control...These are and should be led by LT's.

I have to say that the changes were, unfortunately in one instance, necessary. If you're the new Sup and you have people directly below you that were either a)passed over, b)felt they were passed over, or c)didnt really give two shits either way since they're so high up they felt it didnt matter, then you really have no choice but to bring in new blood that will be a helluva lot more loyal to you. Wies is an 'outsider', he has no political ties (yet) and better yet, didnt come with an entourage (other than the new head of IAD) so obviously he cant have people that are that high up in the ranks that would possibly undermine him. I think any outsider would have done the same thing, and the fact that Risley, Williams, AND GRAU (lets play the which one of these is not like the other game for a second) all got demoted back to LT kinda shows that it wasnt personal. After all, wasnt Grau Daley's first pick till he didnt agree with Big Dick's choice for a 1st Deputy?

oh, and to the confused individual out there, there are at least 2 Mike Sheilds on the department that I know of. One is a patrolman in 018 (and formerly 011) that somebody obviously has a hardon for.

to answer the question, I think (and I may be wrong) Dept. Dugan made it to Lt. on his own. He's a sharp guy who has made a ton of friends on this job due to his work ethic. He's kind of soft when it comes to his optimism. He lives and breathes for this job. However, I'd work for him any day.

Academy had a ADS and commander spot but William Shavers removed the commander spot from budget. He wanted total control and gutted staff because of idiots surronding him. Academy needs a captain spot to run daily activities of academy. ADS is too occupied with meetings at 35th and Springfield. Currently the three sections do not work well together. In-service is in shambles with no supervision. Imagine, one of the largest police departments in the country without a effective inservice training and a broken FTO section. Bring in a competent captain to run daily activities and unite academy into a cohesive unit. Smoke and mirrors is not working. Even in-car camera training is disorganzied and ineffective. Two days of training for what? Take a survey or evaluate the program. They need somone, possibly a captain position to bring a sense of purpose to academy.

no.. entrapment would be IAD throwing a benefit for a good working cop, providing free beer, and then having someone there giving test drives to new BMW's or Ferarri's, THEN jamming you up for getting behind the wheel. Watching someone do something that they'd normally do anyway and then jamming them up for it is not entrapment. Even if the investigator is doing it all 'undercover'.
Be careful who you're drinking with/around, just in case it is true, and if you think something is wrong (ie: cop 'spidey sense' goes off) just grab a cab.

"Former supe TH brought back the rank of captain, and he started the promotions of captains as pure meritorious (no more test)."

Actually- that was when the Capt, Lt and Sgt unions were just forming. The Capt's Association, which only had 7 captains at the time-and only one of those in patrol-sold out the rank to become an exempt spot for a $17,000 one time bonus.

$17,000 dollars or 30 peices of silver?

They didn't have to take the offer...

From a district that does nothing! Libert is a true leader that will take care of his staff and demand work. Very fair and will help anyone. Thank god he is not wasted in 016. Everyone complains about rotten bosses. Libert sets the standard for other white shirts to follow.

Dear Head of Bureau of Professional Standards;
Please take away the marked squad car assigned to Beat 1108. This civilian, M. Alexander does not need a marked squad to drive around the city and run her personal errands in. On countless occassions she has been observed running thru red light intersections to who knows what kind of emergency. She is not allowed by state law to activate emergency equipment and respond to emergency calls, yet she does. There is no reason for her or any other crossing guard supervisor to utilze a marked squad car. the 011 district is short of 6 marked units thanks to Fleet Mismanagement. We are watching you alexander and are making a log of your screw ups and unauthorized use of a department vehicle. By the way, just how do you reach the gas and brake pedals?

Question. Can anyone name any boss above the rank of Lt. who at one time was NOT a meritoriously promoted Sgt. or Lt.? Capt.'s rank and above are all merit or politically motivated appointments. Is there .....
