Anyone Else Confused?

We're short people, right? We have beat cars operating 99 on midnights and afternoons, right? We're downing primary beat cars more often than is safe, right?

Then why is it with this "Back to the Street" program, Officers are NOT to be assigned radio calls? We mean, isn't this the most obvious sign that we're short handed - the number of backlogs that occur almost daily? Wouldn't another car answering calls make somewhat of a difference, even if it's just punching out a few reports? Hell, a dedicated paper car might be the actual way to go.

This comment from a 010 District reader begs for a few questions though:
  • More scams in patrol. Good thing some idiot came up with back to the streets for the inside people because that really helped in 010 on 3rd watch. 1 Sgt and 2 PO's are now being detailed off the watch to headquarters so they can go work back to the street and come in with some sort of numbers while the back to the street police go out as some call number that is not part of the watch and doesn't have to respond to radio calls. Who knows how many other districts had to detail working PO's to back to the streets from their watch also to pad numbers?

    More smoke and mirrors... Meanwhile now they have been denying people time off again in 010 because of this bullshit...and they have been averaging 7/9 cars down a night. Whats up with the lawsuit FOP?

    And then the Commander has the nerve (i'm sure ordered by Supt) to come to roll call and preach how the department has your back, PLEASE!!! DO AGGRESSIVE WORK!!!
We aren't sure we're understanding the entire process described - people detailed off the watch to HQ so someone in HQ can come back and work the street with no radio calls? This can't be Aunt Bea taking care of her old command, can it? Would someone please describe this situation in greater detail, because this sounds like a new low, but we aren't sure.

Our manpower is sick on our watch. I have to say they are very good with giving time off, but boy will we pay the price some day. The day that something even sizable breaks out, there's no way in hell our little skeleton crew will be able to squash it. How can a whole starting time (4 o'clock) only have 7 people in the roll call, and on a frequent basis. This is just dangerous.
If the city is really concerned about us and our well being then they would hire more recruits and on a basis that would at the very least cover the retirees.
But they don't, so why in the world should we put our neck out for them (the city).

aggressive work-- bosses begging for it ?????- you might go years doing police work when all of the sudden you catch a bad beef. perhaps it was part your fault or maybe it was a misunderstanding and it made you look bad. the next step is the department "sanitizing" the whole thing (stripped and sent to call back like a lemming and counting the years till your thirty pending comes down) please, aggressive police work-- its like playing russian roulette-- a huge gamble-- one that i nor any of the other guys on the watch are willing to take. then ops or iad makes a recommendation to the superintendent and he jacks it up or makes it worse because he has your back 200 percent-- bullshit.

A sgt I know, who is working this thing tells me that its all for numbers. HQ wants numbers since everything is down city wide. I think I might have seen 3 or 4 of these 4500 cars over the weeknd in a cetain shithole A/1 district. All of which appeared to be very young looking p.o's. SO these guys probably have very little time on, were not around when things were fun, and don't understand the problems of morale, contracts, crap boss's, clout/merit (or maybe thats how they got this detail), and anyone elses beef

SO appearantly City Hall and 35th st. are seriously feeling our affect and what we're capable of. I say we KEEP IT UP!!!

Which is fine until one of those disturbances has a body found at the scene later.

Alder(fill-in-the-blank) Dixon has the right idea. If anything little thing happens on the 1600 Block of South Central Park, she does not call 9-1-1, she calls Jody direct.

It is a con job done by the higher ups... Just as in the office, they sit on their assess and do nothing, or as little of nothing they can. They are a visual for the neighborhoods, so they think the pooo-lices are looking out for their welfare.
The "gang bangers" know they are for show only. They can't make arrests or write tickets that would take them to court, cause then they would have to take time from their do-nothing, I know somebody office jobs.

If they are on the street with the rest of the regular patrol people, they should be required to do as the regular I don't know somebody police officer. What good are they, just as useless as CAPS.

I believe all officers were trained at the academy, or were they? HMMM!

Hell I propably have more time on lunch than half of you writing on this blog. I am getting ready to retirer and I work in HQ and am tried of working for these dogs in this city. Not one of these pieces of shit will ever get my services again, why would I want to do that for some jag off Boss, who could care less about me or my family. Yes I will go back to the street but not to help with radio calls that only kills the real need to hire more P.O. I want to walk in with a zero at the end of the night and have someone tell me I need activity so I can give them the deer in the headlight look and walk away. You want help lose all these worthless units and put them back to the beat,tru, area gang team suppersion team, gun team ect.all worthless. These are the guy who are really hiding out, make them answer calls and see how fast they will want to leave the unit. And for your information HQ is also empty of P.O except for the young dollies who never have been the police or somebody wife,son or daughter.You can rip on me all you want because I don't give a shit. Being the police use to be fun, now you have a bunch of know it all new P.O. and Jag Off Bosses who took the fun out being the police.

Office people througout the city are required this summer to work 1 week on the street being detailed to whereever they need. DOC comes to mind. Its silly, its ridiculous etc etc. Yup no radio calls but they are supposed to back up the district call. Can you imagine some house mouse that lives in 016 detailed to HQ then has to answer a call in 004 regarding a domestic or sales call. I wouldn't know where I was either in 004. That would be putting them in dangerous situations since they don't know the area where they are. The correct answer would be to dump them back to the districts where they came from and out of HQ permanently. So much wasted space there.

Hate to say it, but back in the day the only sergeants who did that were the sergeants WHO PROVED THEIR WORTH AS SERGEANTS.

Sergeants are there to make decisions, including things relating to manpower allocations and availability, and use of resources. What you describe is a judgement call. Like all judgement calls, it could backfire sometime. It could also ensure that officers reach more life-threatening incidents in quicker time too. The odds are strongly in favor of it being helpful in the vast majority of times.

Seriously, its the sergeants who refuse to make decisions, whether right now, last year or last decade, who should have been entirely disqualified from any consideration for promotions.

Unfortunately, with very few exceptions, the sergeants who are willing to make decisions (i.e. do their job) are the ones promoted to lieutenant far too often.

What you describe is but one example of things supervisors should be doing. Don't let the vast lack of leadership in the department fool you into believing that a supervisor making decisions is part of the problem. Its part of the solution.

Hey boss we are waiting for you to have our backs. There are two more bodies to fill up cars. Or you really don't have our backs do you? That was just your company line you were ordered to say. By the way I didn't see the opening for those half day spots in the CO book.

Hey T.F. your glass cards house is about to fall. Your scams are over! Also remember before you try counseling a PO you have to be at least a Sgt. or get off your ass and take the test to get it by merit. Until then shut the fuck up and do your job your supposed to do and quit hiding people inside.

If those police in HQ and inside have such meaningfull jobs how come they are all able to be taken away for a week and no one misses them? I didn't see the department crawling to a halt yet.

Just a thought.

Besides, who are the idiots that write those contact cards?! Those things are purged from the system every 6 months (I think)...why bother doing 'em!

7/22/2008 09:58:00 PM

NOT true,the department is supposed to purge these contact cards but it does not. I have seen gang cards,contact cards,etcetra that go back to the early 1980's on file. This is another huge Federal Civil Rights Violation lawsuit waiting in the wings.

Fuck you mother fuckers. T.F. is a great guy. The reason people complain about him is that he doesn't take shit from ppo's who want to complain about working with certain people, or who can't work a late car, or who can't blah blah blah. Fucking honest to goodness PPO's demanding shit. He does the job he's suppose to do, and was doing the job LONG before 75% of the current watch, since most of you on the watch have less than 3 fucking years on. Get a fucking clue dickheads. Now go get your event numbers.

First: 8:57--- "They just sat behind us." Did anything happen? NO! Pussy. You should be happy that you had some backup if you neede it. They "probably" did not get out of the vehicle because everything seemed in control (when it seems from your coments that you couldn't control your mother whom you live with when she gets her period) or they didn't want to step on your fragile little easily bruised whimpy toes. Either way, pussy, deal with it. I don;t have to do that inside shit, but I will always stop for a 99 unit(which you types you were not) in Chicago and always when working (and when off duty and feasable)for Stae Troopers and outside units who are 99 or otherwise outnumbered. It is always appreciated and as far as I know never scorned because the appreciate the help. Stop being a jealous pussy (my guess on your comments and attitude regarding this incident) andjust be the police. If you want an inside job either get shot, be good looking or easy female, or suck a dick . Get some balls and stop bitching about other people dumbass. Your career will be much better for you.

To the person beefing about the unit that sat behind but didn't get out to help. How long have you been on? Everything under control and you pull up I would prefer you just sat back in case there was a problem. Most coppers don't want or need a bunch of guys they don't know pulling up and inserting themselves into a stop that is under control. If you needed their assistance a simple " hey guys could you watch them while we go through the car" or something similar would have been appropriate.

T.F. hasn't worked a full honost week in years. He is a disgrace to this job. You must be his sidekick who also doesn't have to work a full week. So you can shut the fuck up. And you don't even have to get event numbers.

For the record, T.F. in 010 is a really nice guy who's goes out of his way for you.

And yes, there are ALOT of demanding/complaining PPO's in 010 who won't do this and won't work that.

But it's a good district overall!

Though I kinda feel bad for the newer PPO's because it seems like they're gonna be stuck at the bottom of the ladder for quite awhile...until they start hiring again! Hahaha..suckers!! Are you ready to be detailed to Bud Billikan and the Taste 2009

Hahaha!!!!

Thank you! To all of you spineless crybaby's on third watch who had the gall to write some of this crap - quit your whining and be thankful. You don't like it where you're at? Plenty of openings in 003, 004, 005, 006, 007 ........... Your jealousy is only exceeded by your ignorance. Strap a pair on and say some of your mealy-mouthed cowardly bullshit to the man's face. Or maybe whine to someone who's got 10 + years on, and see what their reaction is. Your stupidity is preventing you from realizing that you have been taken care of and looked after since you came into the district. Can't get off everytime you want to? Welcome to the police department, get used to it. Your mommy isn't wiping your ass anymore.

You guys make me sick. You all bitch and moan about no manpower, no contract, no union, bad bosses, but will go out there today and generate revenue for this dept. and city by hammering working folks with tickets. Stick together, answer calls and DO NOT generate any kind of revenue. If you do, you deserve the shit you get and you can all go fuck yourselves.

Our contract will not allow for the officers working their five days of "Back To The Streets" to answer jobs. So, that is why. The contract protects us from 35th Street. This is a management and labor affairs issue/FOP Contract issue.
