Lieutenants? Get Your Resumes

Running the captain numbers, we have something like 65 spots filled and there are around 6 lieutenants trained up to be captains. That still leaves a minimum of 4 captains short and there should be a mandatory retirement or two this year.

Should J-Fed keep the captain rank (and according to various advisers we've heard quoted, that isn't even guaranteed) the full strength number is 75.

Start updating those SES packages.

They are budgeted for 78. They should make some extras so that they can detail them to the districts when all of these old donkeys go on their extended medicals before they retire. There are at least 3 that I can think of off the top of my head that currently fit that description.

Promote sgt's, det's and higher p/os put the promotion of lt's and capt's on the back burner for now...

As a lieutenant, I firmly believe the rank of captain should be retained. That being said, I also believe the rank of captain should be a test based career service rank.

Trust me, there is nothing worse than a watch run by two lieutenants who are not on the same page. There needs to be a deliniation of rank.

What is the point? It's still going to be clout. The Lt's that have the juice are in the units and will just be made Exempt. The Capt. rank is consolation for those who are heavy but not heavy enough. The Lt's that have been running the watches and deserve the bump are the ones that won't even have their packet opened much less considered. Instead they will get a new boss that is useless but the Lt.will continue to do all the work. Except you guys will bitch about them on the blog because you don't realize they are being forced to be the Capt's hatchet man so he can be loved. Bring back the test with NO meritorious and get a real result.

You have to have Captains because there will be non-stop arguments between the Lieutenants as to who stays inside and who stays outside.
Sounds like a child's kind of argument, but that is exactly what went on when the city tried to eliminate the Capt. rank in the 1990's, before they started the SES style captains (Senior Executive Service---a quasi exempt rank, with some union protections, no test, submit package which resembles a lengthy resume).
One person must be in charge and making the decisions. When you have two Lieutenants, they eventually argue, mother-f*&k each other, and nothing gets done because they udercut each other.

Who needs more of these clowns anyway, we're Waaaay too top-heavy with brass now. Of course, the mayor, and his cronies, whose pockets and political coffers get lined partially this way, will argue the point. Only more P.O's and Investigative Services personnel are needed, as well as better benefits, equipment, a better schedule, and much more consideration for the front-line troops working the worst crime-infested areas of the city. Time for southside and westside cops to be given Way More consideration for everything compared to those hiding out for many years in Slow, not much police work to do districts and Areas of the CPD. Why should a copper working a beat, tac, gangs, etc; in a busy district not be given more consideration for promotion than say, a P.O. working the LOOP Window Detail in 001 for the past decade or more?

There WAS a career service rank of Captain. Those career service rank captains SOLD OUT! They sold out their rank and sold out every captain who would hold that rank after them for a paltry payoff of $17,000. for that, the City got to have their way with the rank of Captain. That was one further step in the Richard M. Daley quest to politicize the police department. That lead to further steps at doing to the police department what he did to the City with the HDO and leads us directly to the mess we at CPD find our department in today.

Lest anyone throw blame where it does not belong, look first at the real culprit who has fucked this police department royally: Mayor Richard M. Daley.

None other.

Not Leroy Martin, not Matt Rodriguez, not Terry Hillard, Not Phil Cline and not Jody Weiss. Just Richard M. Daley, all by himself. He fucked this thing up so bad he had to go to the Feds to try to get it unfucked.

Please remember that next election time because only about 22% of registered voters even bothered to get their asses down to a polling place last time.

Say this every night in the mirror before you go to bed: Who fucked up the Chicago Police Department?
Richard M. Daley did, that's who.

I was looking at the city budget for 2008 and it looks like the are short about 130 Sgt's and 20 Lt's. If you look at the city budget it breaks down the city manpower numbers by unit. For example the patrol division has a budget for something like 898 Sgt's. If you run a title code for 9171 on the computer at work you can see we only have 1227 for the whole department. It looks like the city is trying to save some money. What happens if these positions are not filled this year? Would they be lost in the 2009 budget?

I am a Sgt in a district, working a watch. It is an absolute must to have one person in charge. This is, as stated based on a military model. A tone is set, decisions are made and the officers know what to do and how to do it. The constant change which takes place when it's two LT's (if they don't see eye to eye) is horrible, and confusing to the troops. And am I the only one who feels that the watch secretary has way too much power? And if that power is misused, it can do more to ruin a watch than any Capt or LT?

just wondering.

You got it all wrong. Captain is not the rank that we don't need, it's the Lt. that is not needed. What does a Lt. do that the Sgt. hasn't already done? Who really runs the street? It's not the Lt., it's the Sgt. The Sgt. can and should confer with the Capt. over what he wants done and how the watch should be run. Then the Sgt. can implement the Capts. instructions. The rank of Lt. is a waste of money and manpower.

And when the Captain is on furlough and RDOs? Also, remember less of any of the ranks means less chance for a patrolman to be promoted.You are using typical CPD bitter, short term logic. They pull Capt.s from Lt. and Lt. from Sgt. and Sgt. from P.O. Making any less of any of them hurts the guy at the bottom's chance at promotion.

Your comment is based on total BULLSHIT and vicious LIES, if a newly appointed Sgt was to address a Capt in the manor you have indicated, I assure you he/she would be written up for insubordination and 30 pending. Instead, the Sgt gets sent to a nice spot at the Academy. I call your BULLSHIT just what it is, a VICIOUS LIE. It seems to me that there are a lot of people on this blog who want to make sure that certain people (Sgt/Lt/Capt/Exempts) do not get promoted or get demoted. You are showing your teeth and they are pretty ugly when you snarl; your jealousy shows brightly through those canines.

Shame on the newly appointed Lt. who compliments a new Lt he/she has just met at the last Lt promotional class and degrades another one. You dare count yourself as an upstanding newly appointed Lt that our troops should respect based on your bashing of another Lt. The whole department knows how your class earned those bars, most of you will never earn most people’s respect and you’ll have to spend the rest of your careers listing to others sneer about you, and after your comments, rightfully so earned. It just goes to show the caliber of our newly appointed Lts. And why our promotional process desperately needs to change.

After reading all of your comments I must wonder how you treat the public when you treat one another in this matter by making up vicious lies. I am truly disgusted and embarrassed to say I’m part of this department. The more BULLSHIT you post on this blog about people, the more respect I earn for those that are trashed. These people continue to hold their heads up high, come to work everyday knowing you are trashing them and trying to destroy their careers out of petty jealously. These are the people who earn my respect for their bravery and fortitude, not you.

Many are commenting that Camacho should not be trusted. As a supervisor I would not want to be trusted either. A supervisor should be doing the right thing, not covering up for his subordinates. When a supervisor allows himself to be drawn into his officers web of trust, it’s usually because there is something unethical going on and they need the supervisor to cover up for their wrong behavior. Once a supervisor looks the other way or steps through those doors with his subordinates there is no turning back, he just gets drawn deeper and deeper into the mayhem, lies, and unethical behavior.

Supervisors should be held to a higher standard and demand that his officers do the right thing. That is a mark of a good supervisor; a supervisor keeps his officers and himself out of trouble by always doing the right thing.

There seems to be some very shameless people in our department, including a newly promoted lieutenant who agrees that Camacho should not be trusted. Well I wish you the best of luck. Don’t expect me and others to come to your benefit or send you a post card when you end up fired and in jail with your crew because you took care of them, because you were trusted. That kind of trust is jail bait.

"As a supervisor I would not want to be trusted either. A supervisor should be doing the right thing, not covering up for his subordinates."

You are a complete and total waste of a promotion. Police officers should be able to trust their bosses AND know that their supervisors will be doing the right thing. They are not mutually exculsive ideals.

"demand that his officers do the right thing"

The officers usually do the right thing-sometimes with a little guidance- but whether or not you 'demand' it. Sure- once a supervisor you have some power but you have no leadership ability if you have to 'demand' officers to do what they should in the first place.

Look up mentor in the dictionary please. If you can't do it- then turn in your stripes or bar(s).
