No More Driving

  • With gasoline climbing toward $4 a gallon, police officers around the country are losing the right to take their patrol cars home and are being forced to double up in cruisers and walk the beat more.

    The gas crunch could also put an end to the time-honored way cops leave their engines running when they get out to investigate something.

    Some police chiefs think the moneysaving measures are not all bad, and might actually help them do a better job. But they worry about the loss of take-home cars, saying the sight of a cruiser parked in a driveway or out in front of a home deters neighborhood crime.

Any chance that J-Fed could be engineering the entire gasoline crunch in an effort to get Chicago cops more fit? The man is an evil genius we tell you. Evil. Genius.

Well - if something like this comes to pass you can be assured J-
Fed didn't come up with it.

He's the 1 who wanted all those Tahoes. Does he have any idea how much gas those things guzzle?

Leave the squad running? Are are daft? Anywhere that does this must not have to worry about the locals coming by busting out the window and take the squad for a joyride.

At the rate things are going with regular cars being held prisoner in the Area garages & no pool cars available we may all be on foot patrol anyway!

the city doesn't care about this, they will just raise taxes to cover the shortfall. instead of looking into ways to conserve, it will just be more out of the taxpayers at the end of the year. the noble dutiful taxpayer will keep getting reamed while the shitbirds get to keep doing whatever they want.

Americans drove 11 BILLION fewer miles in March 08 than in March 08 according to the U.S. Department of Transportation data released Friday.

If this keeps up, it should have a huge impact on suburban sprawl. This would perhaps bode well for Chicago, but its likely the people most affected by price (i.e., poor people) who would be first to make a housing decision based on the cost of travel to work and school.

Can anyone in mass transit comment on whether more people seem to be taking the trains these days?

Are people here familiar with the "peak oil" theories in economic cycles?

It's already started, however the reason Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU) recently lost their cars was because Lt. J. O'grady (who was the C/O of AFU for only 3 mos) pitched the idea to the bosses that we were "do nothing" P.O's when we are the one's who seize the cars. What amazes me though is that some sgt.'s and favorite pets (A. Alvear, J. Clarke) who coincidentally are all white, get to keep theirs. Why does an administrative pet secretary and administrative sgt. need a car?
If your going to implement new rules do it across the board, not to just some. This is why people have all ready bailed out or are in the process of bailing out of AFU and seeking legal remedies.
Also, if they are going to say that vehicles are issued based on productivity it's B.S. The pets haven't done anything different over the years except piggy back (jump on) other working P.O.'s operations or investigations.

Audit take home cars for necessity and application to current job. What are the benefits to a take home car other than individual benefits? Why must PO's have a car? SGTs in organized crime that perform clerical work? Does assignment in a specialized unit guarantee a car? A super perk that is abused by the clout heavy people. JFED audit this privilege.

The take home cars are minimal in the big picture.

How about smaller cars for all non patrol functions. The dicks don't need large cars, nor do supervisors,
et's etc.

Also, only exempts in police related positions need take home cars.
The Supe. and deputies, the chiefs, dep. chiefs of areas, district commanders, any commander that has people working the street - not just for a day.
All others can drive to their office and use the company car as needed for the tour.

The commander's of administrative units DON'T need take home cars!! Not one of them would refuse the exempt spot over the loss of a take home car.

Start at the top, lead by example.

Back in the early 80's MMD installed on several cars a device called an auto therm. It kept the warm coolant flowing thru the heater core & the fan on low with the engine turned off. The driver could switch it off if he did not want to use it. The car would stay warm for about 30 minutes in freezing temps. Nice gas saving device.

How about all the take home cars in vice,inteeligence,narcotics etc... How about all the rented covert cars used for everything from shopping to going out? free gas free everything when in doubt call your clout!

FYI SCC...

OCD controls the 1505 funds as well all know. The 1505 funds also pay for the C-car's maintainance, both as a monthly fee to enterprise or if seized to the routine care of the vehicles. Turns out OCD likes to keep close ties on all their cars and what they do with thoses vehicles. When HQ recently asked for a list all unit vehicles (as in rented or seized, veh#, assigned to, etc) OCD seems to have misplaced over 20 cars. But they really fucked because Peterson may be a crazy bastard, but he's is no dumb ass. I suspect he has already pulled the motor maintanance fuel records. Wait, I know that happened already, LOL!!!!

Looks like Limon and Roti will have alot of explaining to do when we find out unit secretaries in OCD have take home cars.

Ya, let's all bitch about people who get take home cars- you little whinners. Take a look across the board in other departments and see what's going on. Streets and San are a prime example. Are you paying for the gas? I guess not having a take home car won't effect you when you're the only one who doesn't get one when you finally have enough time on the job to finally blow yourself into a unit. BTW- I don't have a take home car and never have had one.

OFF TOPIC: POLICE APPREHENSION OF HOMICIDE OFFENDER PUNISHED BY CPD SUPERVISORS.
As Supt Weiss implores Chicago officers to be aggressive against crime, 2 aggressive, intelligent, veteran PO's currently working in the 016th district travel 3/4 of a block into 025 and arrest a named wanted homicide offender w/o incident, subsequently processing said offender in 025. The homicide occurred in 016.
Now officers and citizens, I believe this calls for a "Good Job" at the very least, maybe a district commendation or a honorable mention. BUT NO!!!
Supervisors on 3rd watch in 016 bring officers into WC's office and "yell" at them for being out of the district, furthermore they are threatened with CR # or a spar, but are let off easy with a formal admonishment on the Supervising Sgt's log and told you are not getting a Honorable or a DC for this because you went 3/4 of a block outside the district!!!
DO WE NOW SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM WITH THE CPD IS? (MERIT SUPERVISORS???)
THIS IS A TRAVESTY OF UNBELIEVABLE PROPORTIONS!
THE PATCH SAYS CHICAGO POLICE! NOT 016TH DISTRICT.
SO FROM NOW ON IF A CRIME OCCURS OR WE SEE A WANTED OFFENDER OUTSIDE DISTRICT BOUNDARIES WE SHOULD IGNORE SAID CRIME WITH THE LAME EXCUSE, "It's not my district"???
YOU TELL ME!!!
SCC, HOW ABOUT A TOPIC ON THIS AND OTHER SUPERVISOR BLUNDERS!!!

Hi boys and girls, its Lt. Richie Scotchbreath here! HIC UP BURP FART Opps I JUST SOILED MY PANTS!

Here is a few tips to beat those high gas prices due to all of Daley and Strogers' taxes!

I keep a jug with me at TR's Pub. When patrons leave the bar and leave behind 1/2 a drink on the bar, I pour the drink into the jug. By the end of the night, I have about 2 or 3 gallons of alcohol fuel for my car.

Also when you see an elderly lady at the gas station, ask her if you can assist her after she slides her credit card in the pay at the pump credit card slider. Then after you fill her car up, put the gas cap back on her car and tell her she is all good to go! As soon as she leaves, fill your car up with the same gas nozzle! HIC UP BURP FART Opps I JUST SOILED MY PANTS! I get a kick out of doing this!

And another one is to just sit in TR's parking lot and when a guy comes into the bar to drink, siphon a few gallons of gas from his car. You know they are going to be in the bar for a while and by the time they leave, they are so drunk, they will never notice a few gallons missing! HIC UP BURP FART Opps I JUST SOILED MY PANTS!

Well got to run, we got a new game at TR's pub, Its guess the inches of certain muscles of J-Fed when he is flexing that muscle! HIC UP BURP FART Opps I JUST SOILED MY PANTS! J-Fed's personal trainer supplied us with all his measurements! This one is going to be fun!

Have you had enough of Daley and this CPD clusterfuck of clout?

According to an Aussie police blog site, the Western Australia Police (WAPOL)is now recruiting internationally, including the USA.

I've been to Oz three times. Generally, I believe the Aussies and their lifestyle are the best on Earth, albeit on the other side of the planet.

No worries, mate.

To all coppers that live on the west end of 008: MOVE!, your neighborhood is shit. You are surrounded by shit. The coppers who work on the west end of 008 are shit! (except for S.C. on Bt.812 3rd watch) Stinkney? Scummit? Every second you stay there you houses are losing value. And you jerkoffs actually have the nerve to talk shit about Mt. greenwood!
I dont even live in mt. greenwood, so dont think that I'm playing favorites.
On second thought, stay there. dont move. every cop i've ever met that lives there has been a total stroke. cocky-ass dorks with punk, wanna-be shithead kids.

Relax, guy. There are some great people (cops) that live in 008 (for now). Too bad that most of them dont work in 008 though, cause the police on the west end are total dogs.
I hate to agree with this asshole but the neighborhood is going if not gone already. Take the blinders off. The shit has already passed central. I wouldnt want to live east of Austin. Face it,
We all know from history who comes after the hispanics.
What sucks the most is that i grew up there and have lived there my whole life. I recently moved my family out. I refuse to raise my kids around these scumbag latin kings and 2-6ers. They are everywhere in garfield ridge. There is not a block in the whole neighborhood where you can get away from it. Quit lying to yourselves. You are losing money every single day. Its a shame.

What business is it of yours what cops live where. Do you own a real estate agency or something? If you dont like it move. There are pleny of blocks where you can get away from it. The whole city has gone to shit. So where should you move? Show me a neighborhood that doesnt have shitheads. Dont say greenwood because the shitheads are well past California. Dont say north side because with section 8 they are going quick also. The neighborhood is what you make it. I am glad you left, because instead of working over here like I do you ran away and moved like a little bitch.

Nobody likes to make more fun of the north side than I do. Even I find it hard to believe that a sergeant from 016 would berate and threaten their subordinates for going less than a block out of the district to catch a homicide offender.

I am in constant contact with a lot of coppers that work in 016 (for the first time publicly I will admit that these are good guys and good workers...please do not out me to my Canaryville peers). If this story about the 3rd watch sergeant is true, he can prepare for a shitstorm from both of my south side barrels.

This sergeant will get it worse than Lt. Richie Scotchbreath.

why does fugitive apprehension need take home cars? Why does the secretary/detective need a take home car that sits on 114th and Spualding 18 hours a day? How come the fugitive apprehension people can take a unmarked squad to there part-time jobsss. same with air port law enforcement.

Why do the youth division Lts, and robbery lts. need a tac home car. Same can be said for the Tactical Lts. How about the six year computer geek kid with the take home ride?

If they took away your car would you still want to be a Lt in the Area or a Tact Lt ? The job of a field Lt is 100 times easier for the same pay plus extra pay when you are the W/C. Thats why they give them the extra perk you moron. By the way your time due is denied.

OFF TOPIC: POLICE APPREHENSION OF HOMICIDE OFFENDER PUNISHED BY CPD SUPERVISORS.
As Supt Weiss implores Chicago officers to be aggressive against crime, 2 aggressive, intelligent, veteran PO's currently working in the 016th district travel 3/4 of a block into 025 and arrest a named wanted homicide offender w/o incident, subsequently processing said offender in 025. The homicide occurred in 016.
Now officers and citizens, I believe this calls for a "Good Job" at the very least, maybe a district commendation or a honorable mention. BUT NO!!!
Supervisors on 3rd watch in 016 bring officers into WC's office and "yell" at them for being out of the district, furthermore they are threatened with CR # or a spar, but are let off easy with a formal admonishment on the Supervising Sgt's log and told you are not getting a Honorable or a DC for this because you went 3/4 of a block outside the district!!!
DO WE NOW SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM WITH THE CPD IS? (MERIT SUPERVISORS???)
THIS IS A TRAVESTY OF UNBELIEVABLE PROPORTIONS!
THE PATCH SAYS CHICAGO POLICE! NOT 016TH DISTRICT.
SO FROM NOW ON IF A CRIME OCCURS OR WE SEE A WANTED OFFENDER OUTSIDE DISTRICT BOUNDARIES WE SHOULD IGNORE SAID CRIME WITH THE LAME EXCUSE, "It's not my district"???
YOU TELL ME!!!
SCC, HOW ABOUT A TOPIC ON THIS AND OTHER SUPERVISOR BLUNDERS!!!

ON TOPIC: IF THEY HAD PARKED AND TURNED OFF THE CAR, THEN WALKED TO ARREST THE OFFENDER WOULD IT BE OK, BECAUSE THEY SAVED GAS???

How about for all those with take home cars, let the city/fleet mgmt come up with a number of gallons of gas per week allowed, attach it to their id card so when they swipe it is deducted. if they go run out their stipend then they have to put some gas in the tank themselves.
they will still save tons on maintenance, car payments, and insurance, but may have to dish out a pittance of what everyone else pays...

nope..."SHE" is clouted with a judge and another boss in the "D" unit. and captain matula (can't write it in caps as I have no respect for him) have no guts to back the work done by his people. In 016 there are really good workers and major dog asses...no in-between. The watches, the tact/ gang teams and the "elite" daytime mission team all have their share of both. The dog asses get what ever they want, sometimes without even asking and the workers get shit on by spineless bosses. Wasn't a bad place to work until the gutless bosses started showing up !

At any stage of the investigation I'm sure the working PO's involved didn't even give a shit about an award. THEY CAN GO HOME PROUD! KNOWING THEY DID THEIR JOB PROTECTING CITIZENS OF OUR CITY AGAINST THESE CRIMINALS!
They or myself don't chase assholes with guns for awards, we don't place ourselves in harms way making the crucial arrest for a bullshit piece of paper or ribbon. We do it because it's our job and we like it!
It's just nice(appropriate)occasionally for a boss to say "Thanks for a job well done"! A honorable you can show your parents and kids, or a ceremony where your parents and children are awestruck by the entire award ceremony and get a picture with the Supt.. It's not about US!!!
The same with our soldiers oversea, they do what they do for themselves, their fellow soldiers and their country, not for an award!!!

Same rationale could be used for sgts and po's in specialized units. Field lts wear uniforms and have to be at work 8 hrs a day. In special units, they have complete freedom in plain clothes, no radio and unmarked cars. Huge difference. I believe if you lost a car you would stay in special unit. Who are you bullshitting. You would not last one month in a district with the volume of work.

I am not a huge fan of take home cars for any government employees. There are probably a few employees (like dog handlers) where it is appropriate and necessary, but it seems to me that those on duty at any one time in a police department the size of CPD can probably handle what is thrown at them without needing to have some minor power mind join in.

It makes some sense in small departments where there may be no one actually on patrol at some times, but when you have thousands of officers at a time, it seems likely they can handle most anything that comes up.
