Promotions at Last

Captains named:
  • 006 O'Donnell, James
    013 Denk, Edward
    126 Forlenza, Brigid
    141 Bay, Roger
    253 Pilipuf, Cynthia
    384 Thompson, Diane
    601 Gibson, James
    650 Batrich, Richard
Only two from Districts. Amazing.

And does anyone know what J-Fed thinks or feels about being saddled with another set of bosses that he had absolutely no input on? Word from 35th Street is he's still smarting about that class of twenty Lieutenants rushed through before he made it to town.

Hola Ed,

He was so far out on the Sgt's test he took. Said he has some Hispanice blood in his family and he and his brother got promoted. What a joke. Later when he made Lt. off the list he complained about merit Lts.

This tells it all if you want to be promoted get out of patrol go to a unit. New boss same old game, nothing changes. 35th street is giving the patrol division(where most of us work) a lot of smoke and mirrors.

253 Pilipuf, Cynthia, Congrats. I can honestly say a great pick. For those who don't know her, She acts like the "Real Police". 2nd generation. Moved up the ranks. You can ask anyone the worked with her or for her. She had Bigger Balls than half the Supervisor's in this Dept. She took care of her guys and wasn't some Bitc# very well respected. We all loved the fact she walked around with her 45 lol.

Great story abt. her, this is when she was still a SGT. in 15. there's a call Pitbull. bit two kids. and was growling at the P.O.'S at the the scene cornererd in a yard. So at the scene was a former p.o. W.R. no longer on the job laid off for living out of the city. and her Partner and and O6 car. So there all deciding who should shoot this dog and all this nonsense cause the threat, She heard them complaining and get this W.R. actually starts crying tears and all its a "poor puppy", She looks at them, looks at the dog pulls out the 45 and wham the Dog is put out of its misery.
W.R. abt. had a heart attack. you would think she suffered a loss in her fam. Crying talking abt. tears and all. I was the funniest story around 15 for some time.

Congrats Cindy as she goes by well deserved. You guys will be happy to have someone that will be there to take care of you guys, and actually earned her bars.

Thats just what we need is some more high paid, clout-heavy bosses who never get out from behind their desks.

Hey Jody!!! Instead of promoting all these high ranking bosses who have little or no contact with the lowly beat officer in patrol (who are supposedly this department's backbone). Why don't you promote some Sgts who can give us a hand answering all these jobs the understaffed patrol division gets everyday? Why does this department and city always have to do everything ass-backwards?

J-Fed couldn't be too upset about the clout Lt. promotions... A certain brand new Lt. is now promoted by J-fed to commander of 002, and she promptly replaces a well respected 002 Tact Lt. with another brand new Lt.- Lt. Carothers. What a shock. Business as usual in the clout driven administration which looks an awful lot like every other administration. Way to boost moral. I was a fool to think that Weis would ever think to pick the best person for the job. He just follows the same old cowardly script of picking the right color and the right connections for the job. For someone who was supposed to bring integrity back, it hasn't taken long for him to prove he's doing the opposite.

j-fed at 1st watch in 025 12 apr08....he stated he prefers 4-10hr days.brust stated that the officers present were the best looking officers he had seen so far.i believe j-fed answered a question concerning the cozzi issue on the side w/some p.o.s.he supposedly stated that he believes that the police board did not do their job properly and that cozzi is a liability to the cpd at this point.j-fed also says that he has the p.o.s best interest at heart and that he would not lie if any p.o.s asked him questions.j-fed further warned that the reason for getting a tighter hand on p.o.s is to assist p.o.s in avoiding punitive damages on lawsuits.
this is where he lost me.he used a recent incident as an example:p.o/p.o.s curb a vehicle and an occupant of that vehicle bumrushes the po at which point the po does what he has to do.the bad guy cries brutality.j-fed sort of leaves the story there and a few of us are like ok...what did the po do wrong. at that point cuello pops in and tries to explain that the po got hit with punitive damages because he failed to show for court on a batt to po,at this point jody shows he doesnt know the damn use of force model when he then chimes in with" i dont know maybe the po could have done some more "defensive" tactics or something"...
shields actually made a point everyone knows now...essntially that cameras are everywhere so watch your ass -he seemed ok
cuello also stated she likes hard workers and they are looking at some way to reward workers or something like that-she seemed ok
j-fed then closes with statements that he loves backing the cpd and wants too.he also states that he needs the pos to continue to be aggressive or else -direct quote-"we will have anarchy" at which point he thanks the pos and-direct quote-"i ask you,no i beg you to continue to be aggressive"
j-fed finally adds as long as you dont break the law you are gonna be ok,something about giving cops enough leeway to drive a car through something or another,just no brutality or corruption.

But that's okay, once the taxpayer realizes that they are on the hook for the city's failure to fund the pensions, and the billions of dollars in new taxes, Daley will be out of office by then!

When this chicken comes home to roost, the taxpayer will be forced to realize that there is deferred cost for safety and all the peace of mind Chicagoans have enjoyed in years past. It's gonna be a wake up call for the citizens... These pensions are constitutionally guaranteed. There is no way out. The media will never cover this story properly.

-----------------------------------

Wake up citizens of Chicago, you are on the line for BILLIONS of dollars in city pensions that the Mayor has "borrowed" from and the city has invested foolishly.

The citizens do not know that they are funded at less than 50% and their taxes will have to go even higher to cover the years of mismanagement.

What are they doing about the criminal indictments of Lt and Alderman Carothers? Most likely nothing. It is interesting how our founding fathers, who were very religious at the time, wanted to ensure our government had a legal clause separating Church from the State.

The mayor bends over backwards for the religious zealots in this town. I know we need to separate Church and State from our promotional process in the Police Department.

Sorry for the off topic post but I had to share this. Was at an event yesterday and spoke with a mechanic from Fleet who works at 52nd Street. I couldn’t believe what he told me. The guy in charge of our Fleet is actually a storefront Reverend. The Rev. Art Felton has a storefront church somewhere on Racine. This fact coupled with the fact that his number 2 guy is the Bridgeport political hack Chapulis tells us all we need to know why our cars are in such disrepair.

While washing down my flaming hot Cheetos and rib tips with an ice cold (discretely bagged) forty, I had the occasion to come upon Lt. 1190, one Cynthia Pilipuf.

Granted, it was only a one-time encounter, but I was most favorably impressed.

So reading between the lines of this unwelcome public appearence one can conclude that....

2.If Jody wants you gone he will stop at nothing including incarceration to accomplish it.
3.Our top cop is no cop at all.
4.He wants you to remain aggressive so he has more people to hang.He was brought in to be a reformer and at some point he will talk about what a great reformer he is and how many p.o's he has fired.
If its anarchy he fears then its anarchy we'll give him,shut it down folks

Patrol has to understand that once you make it to a UNIT you are basically doing a job BEYOND the scope of PATROL. They bring more experience then if they worked patrol only.

So if you want to be recognized for your progress, you need to increase your knowledge and experience, beyond patrol, by doing work in a UNIT.

Apparently you want us to honor and respect fallen policemen by marching down Michigan Ave, but I wonder what happened with respect on the previous blog. We go from slamming other policemen to pretending we are honoring them. That is about as two faced as it gets.

Get with the program, it is not pre-service training. The Lieutenants making Captain were selected over a year ago and been through training. They were just waiting to be made. Obviously, you are some new guy asshat who just got here. Try keeping your mouth shut and listening before you say something stupid. Oops I forgot you already did!

Pilipuf = Great Boss. Yeah, she came from "a unit", but most of you f***ing crybabies obviously don't have enough time on or haven't been schooled in her history. She's always been "the real police" (that make you whiners feel better? I know you love the "real police" moniker) from the 011th, 010th and 015th Districts long before many of you pansies got to the same places; these districts today pale in comparison to what they were in the late 80's/early 90's. Cindy's also actually earned every promotion she's gotten through education, stellar police work and passing promotional tests on her own - not sucking ass for LAPA, Helenic Society, or any other politically connected bullshit organization. So save your uninformed opinions for your buddies over some micro-brews, tough guy. You can cry to them how you "work in the ghetto that is the 002nd District" and how you "deal with the worst of the worst society has to offer" and that you deserve a promotion. I've directly worked with Cindy as both a patrolman/partner and as her subordinate, and one thing I'll say is that the majority of people on this job will unfortunately never have the good fortune to work with a person more deserving or capable than Cindy. So, good luck Cindy, and hope to see you back on the Westside soon!!

253 Pilipuf, Cynthia, Congrats. I can honestly say a great pick. For those who don't know her, She acts like the "Real Police". 2nd generation. Moved up the ranks. You can ask anyone the worked with her or for her. She had Bigger Balls than half the Supervisor's in this Dept. She took care of her guys and wasn't some Bitc# very well respected. We all loved the fact she walked around with her 45 lol.

Great story abt. her, this is when she was still a SGT. in 15. there's a call Pitbull. bit two kids. and was growling at the P.O.'S at the the scene cornererd in a yard. So at the scene was a former p.o. W.R. no longer on the job laid off for living out of the city. and her Partner and and O6 car. So there all deciding who should shoot this dog and all this nonsense cause the threat, She heard them complaining and get this W.R. actually starts crying tears and all its a "poor puppy", She looks at them, looks at the dog pulls out the 45 and wham the Dog is put out of its misery.
W.R. abt. had a heart attack. you would think she suffered a loss in her fam. Crying talking abt. tears and all. I was the funniest story around 15 for some time.

Congrats Cindy as she goes by well deserved. You guys will be happy to have someone that will be there to take care of you guys, and actually earned her bars.

I just want to thank the New Administration for their lack of respect for the hard working front line Police Officers. You have truely given no hope to the future of promotions unless you have clout. How can you continuely promote ranks above Sgt. with the obvious need to reward Officers who have both scored and earned (yes some deserve merit)the right to move up the ranks. With such a shortage of Sgts in the field just ans. jobs takes up most of my tour but no problem I ll just seek the advice of one of my newly promoted Commdr, Capts and Lt's and continouly lie to the workers on the watch that their hard work will be recognized.

2) Sgt are in short supply, as are PO’s, but you have to promote from the top down. No sense in making 75 Lt’s only to make 100 Sgt’s the next month.... it don’t work that way.... First fill in the vacant w/c spots, then fill Lt’s, Sgts and so on .....

To the commentators who said...

Is he really such a great guy? If so, why would he come to work for ex-commander Kolman? Doing her bidding?

What did you mean to say about puff the magic dragon...or is it penis envy?

“She had Bigger Balls than half the Supervisor's in this Dept.”

There is one thing we really don’t need on this Department is poor leadership and bad managers. Female supervisors tend to go in two different directions, sweet as pie or screaming psychos and few or none have ever been great leaders. Puffy is loud. And the longer you get to know her the louder she can be. She is sitting on the fence right now looking to the future.

Gibby is a good guy but could be temperamental under pressure. He has learned working with Maher who learned much too late that a reputation is more important then satisfying an ego.

I notice a lot of comments are made about personnel from special units. There are people who work and there are people who have scholarships. You need workers and you need to take care of connected people. All bosses know this they learned it moving up the ranks. J-Fed ain’t going to rock the boat. He is in it for the short term and he’s gone. The only significant changed you will ever see on this job is when we get a new mayor and alderman and criminal charges are placed against reverends who ask for favors.

Patrol has to understand that once you make it to a UNIT you are basically doing a job BEYOND the scope of PATROL. They bring more experience then if they worked patrol only.

So if you want to be recognized for your progress, you need to increase your knowledge and experience, beyond patrol, by doing work in a UNIT.

GOOD LUCK OFFICERS!

You are a pompous ass. Every person who has gone from my district to a unit has done so because of a phone call or a sturdy pair of kneepads. I'm not complaining, but I am stating a fact. Problem with your little theory -- the ones who were dumber than oatmeal when they left haven't gotten any smarter, even several years down the road. No matter how much the scope of their job changed, if they were dumb when they left they are still dumb. But a condescending jerk like yourself probably considers this progress. You are the know-it-all that good officers take eight to avoid.

Guess the city has decided to ignore the court order. Anyone has any other information on this?

What leadership qualities did he possess shuffling papers sitting in a desk outside of crazy ignorant maher's office that earned him this promotion? What kind of man would remain loyal to and work that close to nutcase maher for 2-1/2 years?

I'll tell you. A man who knew schmoozing with the bosses at headquarters will get you meritoriously promoted. Not doing hard police work on the street. It just burns me.

Diane Thompson is working security at Trinity Church on 95th St (yeah, Obama's church). 2 weeks ago, she called Area 2 Deputy's office, repeatedly stating that nobody responded to her calls for a squad car. They responded 2-3 cars each time, to her 5 calls. However, the officers and supervisors who responded were white. When confronted with the fact that she did indeed have several cars respond each time and that she was lying, she tried denying that she ever made the calls. She was then told to submit a written report and fax it to the W/C, stating what she was asking for. She was also told that if she wanted African-American officers to respond, as she had everyone believing (even the African American officers working in 022 that Saturday 2 weeks ago), put that in the report.
She did not make any more phone calls to anyone.

Diane Thompson is one of the dumbest supervisors I have ever met on this job. Following in the tradition of black females from Perry, Rozelle, White and Sandra Day, it makes we wonder why an administration would promote people proven to be completely inadequate of that race and gender when there are so many better female black supervisors here. I don't think J-Fed wants any competent female blacks near him because he is a racist and afraid. Same reason he couldn't put one of the many smart black male leaders in the First Dept spot. Promoting incompetent blacks shows the appearance of not being a racist-but is the worst form of racism. J-Fed should be ashamed of himself.

That's not true in all cases but you're correct that Units do not make you a more complete officer. Of course, again, in some cases you get a different kind of experience but often you work as hard or a little as you did in patrol. Patrol in the "Jack of all trades, Master of none" on this department. So many guys spend so much time out of patrol they've not a clue what's the latest policy or procedure. They are hardly prepared to advice or supervise and many spend all their time hiding, making phone calls to get out of patrol. The poor slug patrol supervisors do all the work with little hope of movement or recognition.

"Gibzon is likeable and is a supervisor that you would want. But this isn't right. He was only a merit lt for 3 months and went right downtown to be crazy maher's administrative lt where he has remained ever since.

What leadership qualities did he possess shuffling papers sitting in a desk outside of crazy ignorant maher's office that earned him this promotion? What kind of man would remain loyal to and work that close to nutcase maher for 2-1/2 years? 4/12/2008 07:36:00 PM"

When a boss asks you to work for him/her, you would ruin your future if you declined.

I wouldn't exactly call it "loyalty", maybe a "prison term" is a more appropriate label.

He was a prince and a great boss in Area 4. Working for that crazy Maher, he was constantly yelled at in public and put up with her crap for years.

In my opinion, he should be promoted directly to Commander or above just for putting up with her and should be presented with some sort of "Maher Medal of Honor" to wear on his uniform.

Good luck, Jim. You deserve it!

Jimmy O'donnell is a stand up guy. Good copper as a patrolman and a good boss through the ranks. If you dislike him then you are probably a do nothing do ass, God knows we have way too many of those on this department. If you are an honest hard worker go getter, then you should get along with Jimmy no problem, if you are a lazy dog or gangsta copper then you need to look for another spot.
Congrats on your promotion.

Just remember guys, not a lot of Lts. even want to put in the Capts. packets to become Capts.!
Much more opportunity to move around and advance as a LIEUTENANT.
Capt. is pretty much a dead end job. Ask the ones that keep getting passed over for exempt.
Capts. pretty much have to stay in Districts. Lts. move all over the place.

...." PRE SERVICE CAPTAIN TRAINING". Now maybe you should keep your mouth shut."

They were picked over a year ago and schooled for about three weeks. Some off that list were promoted right after that class, some later, the rest now. It use to be that when someone was promoted they were sworn-in and given the new rank, star and pay grade on day one in the academy. Now they must wait, until the last day for all that. The city saves money this way and if some skeleton falls out of the closet, well you get the idea.

So they must attend an additional class, some were not in Patrol remember, for a week, still as lieutenants and therefore it is PRE-SERVICE CAPTAINS TRAINING.

Stay safe, and congratulations to those promoted, but be careful what you wish for…

I heard that...1) the last time Cline asked for apps for Capt., about 70 Lts (?) of the 250 or so even applied...2) there are a lot of lts who don't even apply, or who have applied in the past and have been passed over, or who have units or other spots and don't need or want the Capt job...so...the end result is....

So reading between the lines of this unwelcome public appearence one can conclude that....
1.Jody is the supreme dictator of the Chicago Police dept. and the police board has been rendered powerless.
2.If Jody wants you gone he will stop at nothing including incarceration to accomplish it.
3.Our top cop is no cop at all.
4.He wants you to remain aggressive so he has more people to hang.He was brought in to be a reformer and at some point he will talk about what a great reformer he is and how many p.o's he has fired.
If its anarchy he fears then its anarchy we'll give him,shut it down folks

Gibson is a very intelligent guy.
Don't hate on him working for Maher. If a CHIEF asked YOU to work for them, would you turn it down? HELL NO! So shut up, and quit being made it wasn't your turn. He did what he could working for her, never bad mouthed his boss, and performed his duties well, as any employee should. Maybe if more of you had the work ethic Jim did, you'd be ASKED to work in some good spots too.
Way to go, Jim. I told you a long time ago; you should have been a boss a looong time ago, I'm sure you remember our last conversation.
God bless you, and good luck in the new assignment.
And for you dogasses, If James O'Donnell is coming to your district, either pick up your pace, or prepare to move out of his way. He doesn't suffer dogs very well, which tends to make the cowards come here and post their crap anonymously. Actually, we need more bosses like them, be they black, white, hispanic or female. This list seems to have a few people who are known to be the police, and good leaders, also Cindy Pilipuf among them. All three will do very well. Workers will feel appreciated, the dogs & cowards will continue to slam and bash here (anonymously, of course).

I disagree with your comments and old wives tale that if you say no to a boss's request, your career is ruined. Many of us have been offered positions as such and we refused to accept them for a multitude of reasons.

Maybe because we didn't like the boss and didn't want our name linked to an asswipe the rest of our career? Maybe because we were happy in the position we were at? Maybe because we didn't want to sell our soul and play the game?

If you say no to a boss and kindly provide a reason, and he attempts to destroy your career because of it, than you made the right decision in the first place.

I liked JG befoer. But Iknow that old supt PC put JG there when crazy MM was on furlo. She didn't ask for JG and she wasn't happy about it. But who was she going to yell at - her maker? So instead she took it out on JG?

So that would mean the supt told JG to eat shit for a while because there will be a carrot dangling for him in the end? We call that bribery. What other way do you want to try and slice it now?

Maybe I'm the fool because he got the money, but it certainly made me have less respect for the man.

Cindy Pilipuf always took great care of her people. To the post that wanted to know how she was with time, deviations, etc., she took a lot of heat in the Unit for taking care of coppers. She was yelled at for giving too many people off on weekends, even when there was good reason. Would do everything in her power to head off , eliminate, or minimize deviations when deserved. If you acted like a dog, she would treat you like one until you got your sh#$ together, and then all was forgiven. She cared for her people as if they were family. 010 is very lucky to get her.
As for Capt. Lipman? She was part of the Cynthia White Discrimination lawsuit. Need I say more? Allegedly, White wrote "rejected" on her Captain's application and Lipman was smart enough to save it. Lipman also settled the suit with the City and did "pretty well".

So you think Brigid Forlenza is underqualified? I just assumed that was a requirement since every Capt in the city, less one or two, is extremely underqualified. In essence, being an underqualified, worthless, suckhole makes one overqualified (in reality) for the job of Capt/FOP buster.

So, I'm guessing that J-Fed now realizes what he's in for. A captains "doomsday" list leftover from Cline that he could do nothing about and has to eat...what other similar things are in place that he can't squelch? The Lt's and Sgt's lists? The "Big" movements have stopped for now as the 3 wise men try to figure out just what they can do. You can bet that City Hall will never let a list go up again, like this capt's list, and have a component of already trained promotee in-waiting pool leftovers. Cline got over on Daley with this one. But some of you did blog that Cline was devious (or clever). Does this count?

To the newly appointed Capt Jimmy D. and I quote " lock'um up...yeah uh uh yeah...lock'um up." You are a sellout and not the copper you used to be in 007. Hope you enjoy your new bars. Somewhere along the line you lost track and forgot what is was to be a P.O., but thats ok cause the majority of people who make rank usually do with the rare exception of a great few (which you are certainly not). Remember that the people you so casually pushed to the side are gonna be on this job for awhile. You may be a great guy off the job with family and friends, but you certainly are't one on this job.
So enjoy the raise and the pressures that come with it because....... you know how you got those bars Capt.
