How, Pray Tell?

  • Businesses, high-rises and even private homes with exterior surveillance cameras could share their video with Chicago’s 911 center to create a panoramic view of disaster scenes, under a plan advanced Wednesday that could dramatically expand the city’s Big Brother reach.

    No other city in the nation would have more surveillance cameras at its disposal if banks, bars and convenience stores take the city up on its unprecedented offer.

    London has 500,000 cameras monitoring virtually every public move its citizens make. Chicagoans could someday approach that total, thanks to the ordinance sponsored by Mayor Daley and advanced by the City Council’s Police and Fire Committee.

Cameras, as has been stated here and elsewhere, are next to useless. Unless someone is watching them, they prevent nothing, deter no crime and have to date, never apprehended a criminal. Unless there are enough "boots on the ground" to operate off the camera's data collection, nothing will ever be accomplished - aside from the aforementioned tax hike.

Our cameras are nothing more than big TIVO's recording...

Upon an event they will be accessed to see if they caught anything. Images will be released to the media, and the smoke and mirrors and the spinning will begin from city hall

What they will end up with is a building filled with video images of crimes being committed and a prison empty of criminals.

I am not against cameras but I am against the idea that cameras will keep anyone of us safer.

I handled more than a share of violent crimes committed right under the city PODS. None of these PODS stopped the crime and not one of these PODS produced any evidence in solving the crime.

I say if we put cameras in the Alderman's offices, Mayor's Office and other places they frequent for "business", crime would reduce greatly.

On visits to the French Riviera, I have spent some time in the Principality of Monaco including the casino at Monte Carlo. With about 32,000 residents, all appearing Caucasian, and about 0.75 square miles in area--smaller than New York City's Central Park-- there are cameras everywhere.

They are monitored from the police station.

While street crime is virtually non-existent, I find the Orwellian factor somewhat intimidating.

Forced residency living in a corrupt city and county who raise taxes on all of us, but pad their salaries by voting themselves raises to cover the cost of living increases and then some.

Contract after contract the city takes their sweet time and low balls us in the end. This will be the worst contract ever and will not even come close to covering the cost of living increases that we have felt. The city will take more away and give us even less as usual! Don't do a damm thing out there, other than answer your calls and back each other up! This city and department could care less about us. They show us time and time again! Stay safe brothers!

You are correct in that video surveillance does not offer any REAL TIME benefit. Even with
"boots on the ground". The 016 District has had a prototype video surveillance program in
operation for several years and has produced several hundred arrests a year using videos from
crime scenes in that time. This program has been mostly ignored by the higher ups in the
department. This is an actual use of video surveillance that is producing results. For some reason
the bosses seem enamored with hooking up hundreds cameras that no one will watch with the
misguided concept that it will help them see what is going on when the shit hits the fan rather
than expanding a program that has proven how to get real results from the existing video
cameras. It must be that they are embarrassed that something that works originated at the district
level instead of from some highly paid consultant.

May I be the first to offer my lowly opinion on this subject. To preface my comments I am a detective (and have been for the last 19 years). We now have cameras everywhere. To my knowledge the expensive array of cameras the city operates have not solved one crime to date. They are as useless as tits on a bull. The only decent cameras are the "red light" cameras that you can count the hairs on your head type. I know because I have been the victim of some of them and they take great pictures of the driver, the license plates, and the interior of the car. The point of this diatribe is that felony review uses cameras as another reason not to approve any charges, looking to see if there are any videos of whatever. Add more cameras, and expect to be taking longer looking for every camera image from every angle. We don't need any additional cameras, that is, unless another of Daley's or an alderman's relatives are selling cameras these days.

Hey stupid, I guess you aren't aware that that program in 016 takes closed circuit camera recordings from either the victim's building or nearby cameras that are NOT on the POD system. The real purpose of THAT program you speak of, and uniformed I might add, is to enhance the video obtained to a point where it is usable in court if possible, and that 99% of that video comes from PRIVATELY OWNED closed circuit cameras such as food mart, banks, grocery stores etc. that are either victims or where at the scene and capturing video that was obtained by detectives.

These liberals don't realize the long term agenda of these cameras is not to catch criminals but to contrive an aura of all powerfulness and to strip any remnants of freedom,liberty or privacy from all of us SUBJECTS.

This is the beginning of living in a totalitarian Communist society; where neighbors are taught to tell on neighbors,children to report parents and workers to report workers to the SECRET POLICE.

Children will learn nothing but political correctness(not to think or question anything)in schools. They will be instructed in how the state will provide everything for them and that the state is ALL POWERFUL. They will be told anyone above age 30 is dangerous and has been taught the heresies of freedom,patriotism,individualism,etcetra.

Political dissenters,free thinkers,intellectuals and freedom loving patriots will be mass incarcerated or will mysteriously disappear. I predict SCC will be one of the first to disappear.

The guy keeps yelling over a bullhorn that he is with the black panthers (m/2) and that the police shoot people in the back. They both have signs on their bodies that say convict ALL the curropt cops. After I listned for about 30 seconds I said you guys are idiots and walked away. Just thought everyone should know what the liberal yuppies really think of us."

Maybe if they get cameras in the 019 dist. Our tactical and Gang Teams will have to actually do some work. The other day I was told that they got yelled at for lack of activity. One team had 8 Arrests for the period. Thats 10 guys in 30 days 8 arrests? Great work boyz!

Another day at 26th & Cal and another day seeing the lazy dog ass male white Cook County Sheriff with the big black sun glasses sitting kicked back in his chair on two legs not looking at anybody that enters the "secure" parking lot. Fuck you dog ass useless tool. I see bangers and defendants in the parking garage and lot everytime I'm in court, parking in the same area as you and I. No wonder their is so much gang grafitti in the hall ways and stairs. No wonder so many cars are damaged and vandalized, all in the "secure" parking area.

hmm - just looked at the clock and calendar. its been 17 days, 4 hours and 19 minutes since I saw a 4th district police car patroling my beat and a lot longer for a sighting on my block or alley. I guess having a non criminal family with both mom and dad working full time jobs, paying taxes out our asses gets you no police service. the white working class family gets nothing when the ghetto hood non working non tax paying ssi abusing scumbags get all the police service huh? where's the justice in that.

You are correct in that video surveillance does not offer any REAL TIME benefit. Even with
"boots on the ground". The 016 District has had a prototype video surveillance program in
operation for several years and has produced several hundred arrests a year using videos from
crime scenes in that time. This program has been mostly ignored by the higher ups in the
department. This is an actual use of video surveillance that is producing results. For some reason
the bosses seem enamored with hooking up hundreds cameras that no one will watch with the
misguided concept that it will help them see what is going on when the shit hits the fan rather
than expanding a program that has proven how to get real results from the existing video
cameras. It must be that they are embarrassed that something that works originated at the district
level instead of from some highly paid consultant.

In a word...NO.

What you have is a 1 in a 1,000 or less chance, that a camera happened to be in the area, pointed in the right direction, focused, not interfered by trees or traffic giving a fuzzy low-def picture. You may be lucky and get a picture of someone or a car leaving the scene but that almost always has to be enhanced to be of any use.

ShotSpotter, the automatic gunshot location system, is a microphone/GPS system that detects the sound of bullet moving through the air. It can be coupled with automated video.

Our video system tells us there is a illegally parked truck so go write a ticket.

Our mayor is paranoid, he wants video to watch and control the people. He views the police and other city employees as enemies to be under constant surveillance.

Here is clue: camo pattern clothing, woodland, dessert, tiger-strip, because of the way it is cut and put together is almost as identifiable as a fingerprint.

I appreciate your perseverance in getting the truth as a concerned citizen. Truth is, you are correct...we all laughed in our chairs.
And, as a concerned citizen, I would encourage you to start looking at State's Attorney's cases and how many of our good arrests get knocked out because our word means nothing. It's the city Daley envisioned and created.
My partner and I continue to work hard only for the fact that we have one of the greatest bosses on the CPD. This will only last as long as he is our boss...which unfortunately, is not long.
Otherwise...we'd be throwing ourselves under the bus. But, thank you for an open mind that does not always leave us with tread marks down our back.

England has a large contingent of leftists called the Labor Party. We have a large number of Democrats. If individual rights are being stripped away for the good of "the less fortunate" AKA succubus assholes, rest assured libeals are behind it. You see, their only power comes from people who NEED the government. If you don't need someone to run the everyday affairs of your life, buy your groceries, pay your rent then the liberals lose their power. Hence, tax the shit out of everyone and redistribute the wealth. Daley, J.Jackson, Hillary, Ted Kennedy are all very rich because people NEED them.

the good - - -

the newer POD cameras are a great start, but could have a little better picture quality. I use the rewind feature of the cameras close by every time there's a shooting in the district. Someone on the desk should know how to log on and show you how. it's actually a helpful tool for PO's (if you've got some time on your hands)

the bad ----- and something you won't hear about too often

OVER HALF THE PODS LITERALLY NEED SOMEONE TO PHYSICALLY CLIMB THE POLE AND PULL THE HARD DRIVE WITHIN 72 HRS TO GET THE VIDEO!!!!!! they then download it to a cd and police-mail it to the requester. this ONLY happens when someone puts in a request. 9/10 times, by the time they pull the HD, the video has been long gone and the dicks get a note saying said video was unattainable or damaged or inconclusive. --- ASA's won't charge without videos now and dicks can't get video within the 48 hour window.


I wish someone would ask the city some questions.

Hey SCC here's one for ya............Ald. Rey Colon, 2710 n. sawyer, has the practice of issuing permanent residential parking permit stickers to non-chicago residents, namely a resident of Cicero in the 014th dist. Funny how the people who live on the block have to pay to get hte passes but a letter from the alderman gets this non-chicago resident a free one. And that came straight from the person who owned the car and had the sticker. I'm sure the people of the media would love to get a hold of this story.

7/24/2008 05:58:00 PM
As tough as it may be,write that jagoff for not having a city sticker everytime you see the car. To have a permanent residential sticker,you must have a current city sticker.

A waste of time, manpower & money. Why hasn't the ALCU or some other tree-huggin' liberal fuck organization filed some sort of lawsuit to disable what actual working cameras the city has? They've proven to be utterly useless to deter crime - shitheads serve/work right underneath em. Anytime we've contacted the Pod People to see what if anything was seen - yup... nuttin' - just our bad luck, camera rotated in the wrong direction... wouldn't ya just know that would happen?
