Clearance Rate to Fall

  • Chicago Police detectives -- other than those assigned to the FBI's violent crimes task force -- will no longer respond to bank robberies in Chicago, under a policy change unveiled this week that rankled the police union.

    Fraternal Order of Police President Mark Donahue said morale among rank-and-file officers is already at "a very low point," and it won't get any better if career-FBI agent-turned Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis hands off police duties to his former FBI colleagues.

Well, as "rank-and-file" persons, we never really got to investigate bank robberies. We guess we won't miss it much. But what's with Mark all over the news lately? Is he realizing the entire negotiating process is being indirectly derailed by Daley's people talking to the press, leaking to the press and making J-Fed subvert the negotiating process?

Mark is all over the press because of you SCC. You see, the press has been out there quoting you and asking you for input whereas, the FOP has been left in the dark. Why, because you have the pulse of the officers and FOP does not. The FOP is beginning to understand what the officers want and Mark has to get out there and do his job now. This is a direct result of you SCC. Congrats. Keep up the good work.

Who wants to investigate anyway. Have at it F.B.I. Any way boys and girls, looks like things are finally coming to a head. Between the midget mayor, overpaid useless foi gras concerned politicians, store front race baiting reverands, incompetant boot licking bosses, goofy ideas of mandatory contact cards on stops, filling out silly cards on traffic stops for university studies, trr reports, answering to every bullshit cr#, being second guessed by cameras on every corner, in every car and on every mutts phone, the bleeding heart liberal lunatics and the biggest culprit of all, THE CHICAGO MEDIA... THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT IS OFFICIALLY BROKEN! And as a result this city is going to suffer irreparable damage. You have turned this once great Police Department into a bunch of paper pushing report taking salty mother fuckers. So when you are all ready to apologize, kiss our asses, hand us a fat juicy contract and appreciate the sacrifices that we once made and would gladly make again if only supported and appreciated... ONLY THEN WILL I PUT AWAY MY SILLY PEN, DUST OFF MY SWORD AND TAKE BACK THE STREETS OF THIS ONCE GREAT CITY!!!! Until that day comes, I suggest you all buy a gun to protect yourselves. Oh wait, I forgot... you can't. You live in Chicago. Oh well, I guess it would be a good idea for you all to hurry up with the apology, ass kissing and juicy contract. Until that day comes, I hope you and your loved ones avoid being the next victim to fall prey to one of the morlocks.

There are something like 12-15 CPD detectives plus a couple CPD sgts assigned to the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force. They work out of the new federal law enforcement building on Roosevelt Road near juvenile court. They will come out and handle the paper on Bank Robberies from now on, not the Area detectives. If Donohue is bitching about this, he's a moron. The Area guys don't want the bank robberies. We have complained for years that the Task Force guys should do them. They are CPD detectives detailed to the feds. Bank robberies are federal crimes. This did not hurt morale, it helped it in the Areas.

I would just love to see a comparison of comparable homicide (murder and non-negligent manslaughter) clearance rates of all U.S. cities with populations in excess of 500,000. Also include exceptional clearances.

How about all Part I crimes? Now wouldn't that be enlightening.

Could this be one of Chicago's most shocking and shameful secrets? The media and the public are oblivious.

What will we do without the leadership and expertise of Senora Sherlock?

J-Fed is a joke, but this is a good idea. It was not his idea though. Dep Sup Peterson, Bureau of Investigative Services, decided to do this. He wanted all the dicks detailed to the feds brought back to the areas. Wanted everyone at HIDTA, Bank Robbery Task Force, DEA etc back where they belong, the areas. The feds whined that they needed the manpower, so it was agreed the guys could stay. Peterson however wants to make sure they are going to be doing something besides working 4 hour days, four days a week, while getting their federally guaranteed $500 monthly overtime. Yes the boys detailed to the feds get $500 a month, every month, in overtime whether they earn it or not. They all have take home cars to.

I guess it has become the policy of this department to reduce the authority we as police officers have on the street.

In addition to this bank robbery thing, a SGT from the CPD training academy, is currently training CTA employees on how to write parkers.

I could care less about the parkers....., but in that we are in contract talks, aren't we giving up something for nothing?

Shouldn't this be a contract issue first, FOP?!!!... To be negotiated for something in return, from the city!!!

As a practical matter, this makes sense. CPD personel will be there to assist as usual-but no duplication of investigative efforts. RBT detectives have more important things to do than type a major the Feds don't need.

mark is FOS! I'm glad they've taken over the investigations. All we did was the intial report and the super secret bank squad would never tell CPD or the investigating det's NOTHING! In most cases they (fbi) already knew who the offender(s) were. They would sit and wait for the numbskulls to strike again and then arrest the offender(s) for multiple cases.

No police duties will be lost because of this. Police will still respond to 911 calls of holdups in banks, do case report etc. if an offender is on scene, they make arrest, get CB number, just like always.

And, like always, the offender and paperwork is handed over to FBI task Force investigating bank robberies, like always.

The practice of assigning a detective from the nearest area will stop because, like always, all they did was a short report and hand it to FBI. This only stops assigning that extra detective from the area to a bank robbery, they weren't normally needed anyway. Detectives are no working with the Task Force.

Very little has actually changed. Redundant detective assigned who did little anyway is only change. Beat cars still go, still make paper, still try to make arrest at or near scene, get credit etc. Big deal about nothing.

Holy Mr. Bond Batman!!!

Mr. Bond thinks there are many reasons why CPD arrests are down...

1. The Chicago BIS homicide clearance rate is below thirty percent, the national
average is sixty-five percent? Suggestion: Distribute some Viagra to the
Detective Bureau to get those numbers up. Hey that old bald dude with the bad
teeth does he have ED?

2. Dismantled SOS last Fall and TRU this Spring, one thousand less guns will be
recovered this year. Suggestion: Allow five hundred or more un-registered guns
to register with Daley’s new buy a gun and kill program sponsored by Alderman
Mell. Cook County ASA will not approve you felony charges for UUW during the
program.

3. Use SWAT and Special Units armed with military style weapons to put the fear
of God by intimidating and agitating minority communities beyond your
average aggressive policing polices thus far. Suggestion: Watch Andy Taylor’s
Mayberry reruns to capture a sense of true community policing at its best.

4. Threaten the rank in file officers with crucifixion for making “lapses” in
judgement as determined by the police board and state courts as being only
human. Suggestion: Let the scales of justice and the judicial branch play it’s
role as judge, jury and executioner.

5. The superintendent should not negotiate terms of our contract with the media
minus the union’s representatives. Suggestion: How about telling Da Mayor to
settle the contract in a timely fashion at the bargaining table.

6. Fix the stupid merit system. Suggestion: Allow all sworn members who don’t
get a merit promotion to apply for a Shakman claim annually.

7. Supt return the uniforms back to the store. Suggestion: If you can’t get a
refund the union has a sale or donate them to Amvets for a tax right-off.

8. Seek indictments for Alderman Carothers, Eddie Burke and others for their
placement of promotions for friends and family program. Suggestion: Don’t trust
anyone. But, make one of your Federal buddies the First Deputy to prevent the
friends program from continuing here in Chicago.

9. Get the US Attorney to indictment Da Mayor and those Alderman selling out to
developers. Suggestion: I think you need to start at the top before you can
address the corruption problems faced by this city. Da Mayor and his Alderman
need to go...our citizens of this great city really ain’t got any clue what’s
going on here looking at all the smoke and mirrors. Naive citizen just talk about is
the price of gas at the pump. Meanwhile Da Mayor is pulling more dollars from
everyone’s wallet to give to his buddies.

10. Supt, are you crossed eyed? Suggestion: Start wearing your glasses again.
I like the Clark Kent image, it looks better on you.

Revenue, lad. You and I know that it's virtually impossible to win a case against the ANOV hearing officer. On the other hand, look at all the cases that are tossed in traffic court. The city will reap tons of money and there's really no excuse that will allow the hearing officer to rule in the defendants favor.

SCC, you and 95% of the readers/writers of this blog do not understand what a Collective Bargaining Agreement is because you are too busy asking for goodies from our leader that he has no ability to give.

The primary function of any Collective Bargaining Agent, in our case the FOP, is JOB SECURITY FOR ITS MEMBERS. If the city is prepared to "contract out" police duties to the FBI or Traffic Aids or to anyone else, that is a Number One Major priority.

All other items in the contract are a far distant lower priority than confronting the employer when he removes work from the employees.

In comparison, other issues of the contract are irrelevant. Salary, work hours, overtime availability, unit assigment, work duties, and discipline are all issues that 1) will be agreed to, or 2) will be decided in arbitration. These issues are negotiated. Contracting out or re-assigning work is never negotiated and it is ultimately the way the city can justify a "smaller" department to the arbitrator. That would give the city the right to reduce the workforce or, in our case, fire coppers. The city would then negotiate for the right to remove the coppers they don't want.

Robbery (all robbery) is a violation of Illinois Law. The city is saying that this "work" will no longer be performed by its employees.

Watch for more of this in the future because this is how the city will ultimately turn us all into at-will employees.

Al we ever did was to write a report on bank robberies. Next we got away from that and not we do nothing with it, CPD-FBI taskforce handles the whole thing. 95% of these robberies are not robberies at all, there is no weapon in fact the offender gets hurt more from the exploding dye pack if it works. These BANKROBBERIES should be down graded to thefts by way of a note.

Donahue is a mouse among monsters in this city. Yes, the union has accomplishments on their side. I will give them that.

Donahue thinks everything can be handled with politically correct statements. You and I know, it'll never happen. And if you think he's being vocal now on the radio and TV about our plight and the bullshit that is permeating our very existence in this city, well then, you need an MRI. I've heard nothing on the radio or TV that would make me believe that he's the president of a 9500 police officers.

What this union lacks, IS A JIMMY HOFFA TYPE OF PREZ. Donahue is not that type. He is a low key individual that creates no waves. And Lil Caesar loves him for it.

Lets not forget, Donahue is a politician, not a union President. He should be a lobbyist, not a union leader. Let's not forget that he was elected by the 80% of retirees that vote in the union election and not the 30 to 35% of active members that voted.

This department sorely lacks a voice. Someone, who with a few statements, will keep Lil Caesar and The Deer in the Headlights up at night, fuming over what was said. Donuhue will never be that person.

Then, and only then, will we be heard, and just maybe, RESPECTED.

BELLA FOR PREZ.

The clearance rate will fall? LOL - I didn't think they cleared many to begin with. This isn't a slam at the Det's. I think they (Det's) began learning before the P.O.'s to back off on aggressively clearing a case and trying to send the bad guy/gal to jail.

The FOP needs to get off their collective asses and really give the City a full on push for our contract. You are all assigned there - it's not like you're doing anything else. And while I'm on the subject - could someone down there PLEASE keep Mark out of the Media. Whatta dumdum this guy comes across. He seems to be utterly clueless as to what our plight is and how to repair it. (no, I didn't vote for him)

As I read it not much has changed as far as how bank robberies are investigated. Why all the hubbub? Because J-Fed is trying to use his smoke & mirrors trick on the public/media. The public can see we are giving them what they want. This robbery thing is nothing new, persay - we all know that. But - the public didn't. So - try to regain some confidence from the public by stating a 'new' policy will be handled by the Feds to deflect from all the other problems he has or has created.

Yes, morale was low before he got here. But - he has apparently made it his personal goal to ruin this department in record time. He's succeeding so far, it's the only thing he's succeeding in doing.

'Until morale improves the beatings will continue'. Well - you can only beat us so long before we collectively come up with a solution.

Blue Flu? Nope - it's illegal, we aren't allowed.

BUT we CAN do exactly what is required of us. Answer your calls in a timely manner. Parking violator? Really, where? I didn't see it. That's not alcohol in those cups, looks like apple juice to me those young lads are enjoying traipsing back and forth on the corners.

This is what the Mayor wants, this is what the Reverands, AlderCreatures, J-Fed, the Courts and a good portion of the communities want. We ain't the sharpest tacks in the box - but we ain't stupid neither... Give em what they want. Walk the line, do not stray. No one is willing to protect you when the shithead beefs.

The majority of us go out each day well-intentioned. Get the bad guys off the street. Inventory their guns, dope, money - impound their cars. It's what we did & I enjoyed the hell out of it. The public has spoken. They don't want the police to be the police. Time to give our 'adoring' public what they want.

Chicago detectives should be clearing crime, the bank robberies handle by the feds. Dicks in Chicago have it made , they dont investigate all they do is close cases and walk around if they were bosses with an attitude, they forget they have the same shirt color as a patrol officer.Get rid of dicks from Specialized Units and put them in an areas, none-detectives can fill the vacancy, dicks should be investigating why are they making the big money. Get them out of Homan Square, get them back on the streets clearing cases, they dont have any business being in Fugive Warrants making all that money on overtime is a disgrace.These guys and girls are hiding at Homan Square making fat money , Chicago have officer that are trained to do what they do, Those folks deserve a chance to work in the specialized field. detectives are taking advantage by getting their clout to place in Homan Square give other guys a chance, get out and solve crime thats what you get paid for. Maher put them in there now she is gone get new blood also change the Sgt they dicks too go to an area and give your knowledge of crime solving to your peers such other Sgt's that don't have clout. Time to go Batista, now go and do real work, can hide any longer How many years Al, party over dude.

You know how heavy you have to be to make detectiv e. Try getting one of these spots, or assigned to DEA. Plutonium heavy.
