You Better "Measure Up"

  • With murders up, arrests down and officers writing fewer parking tickets, Chicago cops will soon have to measure up in performance evaluations for the first time since 2002, top department officials said Monday.

    The department hopes to have a new evaluation system in place by the end of the year, said Beatrice Cuello, deputy superintendent of patrol. Officers, sergeants and watch commanders will be evaluated.

Everyone is going to be called on the carpet evidently.
  • The department is considering annual evaluations, said Ted O'Keefe, deputy superintendent of administrative services.

    "The superintendent thinks a performance evaluation system is a key part of every organization to identify the people who are your top performers," O'Keefe said.

And what will the top performers get? Extra points on exams? No, that's reserved for the clout people. Besides, then the City might have to reveal what the actual standards of "merit" actually are. Maybe they'll get first crack at "elite" units? No, that's for phone call people. So what exactly are people going to get evaluated on?
  • Officers, meanwhile, have written about 84,000 fewer tickets than last year. If that pace continues, the department will end the year with about 1.49 million tickets, down 9 percent from the 1.63 million police-issued tickets last year.

    At $75 per ticket, the 84,000 ticket falloff would cost the city $6.3 million. If the fines averaged $100 a ticket, the loss would be $8.4 million.

Ah, the truth of the matter - we aren't the police anymore. We are money generators. We exist to feed the Machine. Law and order be damned as long as Daley gets his money. Anyone want to point out that the fewer arrests and fewer tickets are directly attributable to the fewer officers fielded by the Department?

We certainly hope the FOP, the media and the citizens are paying attention to what the Police Department is becoming. Or what it has already become. The crime rate doesn't lie.

I for one only answer my calls. Thats it. I am tired of Mayor Daley screwing us every contract time. We go up to 4 years without a raise. We dont even get cost of living!

So until we get a decent contact ... to bad. I wont do nothing but answer my calls and there isnt a damn thing they can do about it.

If we do get a decent contract I will write 5 parkers a day and 1 mover. thats it.

That is a great point SCC; what does a high rating get anyone? You need clout or a phone call to get anything in this city as it is... unless that is the reward. Top performers will get a chinaman, good for use throughout the year!

Which begs to ask the question: will low performers get disciplined and what does the union say about this?

I'm disgusted. We haven't had a fucking contract in 14 months, no sign of a pay increase, and they're worried about fucking parking tickets. What do we get for writing more tickets? NOTHING! So WHY bother? They sure as fuck aren't going to reward us for doing more work, but could they really do anything to punish us for not writing tickets? Give me a decent contract with at LEAST a 3% increase and I'll be more than happy to write as many parkers as you want. But until then, no work J-Fed. The city should be more interested in compensating us for putting our asses on the line for the animal day in and day out and for being the public "ass wipers" rather than look for ways to grade us on being revenue generators. If they're worried about revenue, hire more meter maids. Put them on residential streets in the ghetto where there's an over abundance of "shit rockets" parked illegally waiting to pick up Shiquita, or parked in the bus stop outside of Harold's because they "just pult up so they girl can get their wings." I'll be answering the jobs in my stacking. Thanks.

I highly doubt the citizens of Chicago are upset in the lower parking ticket revenue. It is more than plausible that the 3,500 missing officers might have something to do with lower ticket and arrest numbers though, good point SCC.

I'm sure this performance idea came out of J-fed's "think tank group" I have heard from a reliable source that J-Fed uses many of their ideas and once was heard saying, "they do a great job for me and they come up was some really good policy ideas." Wonderfull! He has two P.O.'s and one SGT. all with less than 8 years on the job and they have influence on what happens. These goofs haven't done a lick of police work but can come up with "policy" Wish we knew the names of the policy group, or "J-Feds three" so we could watch for them on the merit list.

This is an obvious attempt to "hit back" at the increasingly large block of officers who are doing "only" what is required, i.e., responding to radio assignments and following direct orders. They know what will hurt you guys...time off, sidejobs, promotions, etc. This performance system will now give them all the justification they need to deny you these benefits. It smacks of desperation on their part.

I was working in the station one day when a fellow P.O. got her evaluation(back when we use to get them.) She was so huff and puff mad that she went into the W.C.'s office bitching asking why it was 1 point lower than the last one! The W.C. called in the Sgt that evaluated her and listened to his side of the story. (I was waiting for the W.C. to approve an arrest by his door so I heard everything,,,in case your wondering.)

After several minutes of this P.O. interupting the Sgt. with her hooping and hollering yelling things like "oh no you didnt!" "you only doing it cuz i black!" (even though the evaluation of other black and white officers were higher than hers) the W.C. had had enough and ordered her out of the office keeping the Sgt.

The following conversation really rocked my world, being new to the job I belived that this job was all about fairness and that if you worked hard you could advance. I could not believe what I was hearing! After the P.O. left, the W.C. RECOMMENDED that the Sgt give her the score she wanted! Stated that because she was bringing up racial issues and that it wasn't worth getting into it with her. That because she "KNEW" (her son was a shithead gangbanger) people in the black community (REVS) it wouldn't be worth the trouble for the Sgt or him. The Sgt again argued his point but after a failed attempt, the W.C. ordered him to change it! The W.C. was a well liked and respected boss so the Sgt complied with no further duscussion.

Up until this point in my young career I had never seen this kind of behavior. Needless to say, it would never be my last. That is the kind of Department we work in. Racialy devided and clout heavy. Unfortunatly, it's probably the way it will always be. A real shame.

Scores don't mean a thing. anyone can get a good score.

And what good happens if we work hard and give them their numbers? Nothing! Not even a slap on the back. But working hard and playing their numbers game can bring huge problems upon the P.O.! But not you boss, right? Now that there are red light cameras everywhere there should be a large number of tickets coming in, so why do they need us? Everytime they open their big lying mouths they take morale down even lower! They need to go to leadership school or something because they have no idea how to motivate us to work for them. Trusting them has to happen first though and a contract would be nice too!

Jam your "performance ratings" up your asses, Cuello and O'Keefe.

Historically, with no written standards and criteria in place, all subjective "evaluations" on the job are rigged. They reflect nothing more than clout.

The troops doing the heavy lifting in the districts are told that an 85 is an outstanding rating. Compare this with the worthless house mice, specialized units and other clout baby spots where with a maximum score of 100, they average in the high 90's.

Now that we can't really be aggressive and do real police work we're going to be evaluated. Are we going to be rewarded for good numbers or are we going to be looked at closer by the brass? Because if our numbers are better than the average P.O. then we must be doing something illegal, right?
Where was this when guys were really doing good work and not just justifying their existence with event numbers? God, I feel bad for young guys who really wanted to be the police, they just came on at the wrong time.

"Measure Up"? "Measure Up"? To what? What fucking standard do you want us to "Measure Up" to? Yours Mr. Superintendent? So I can do only half my job, and get paid twice as much? Sell out other Officers? Not pay attention to the real issues that plague this Department? Accept the job for “blood-money” to buy Mayor Daley more time out of prison?

“Master Daley wants more money, fuck manpower, cause all that extra cash will go right back to Master Daley! Oh, that reminds me, I got to call a buddy of mine from the FBI, see if he wants a job for 150K a year!”
“Fuck that Officer that ‘pimp-slapped’ that guy, I’m gonna jam it right in his ass, but that bitch that commits armed robbery at the Starbucks, since she’s connected, well, we’ll just suspend her!”
“Hey Monique, bring those ‘fish-lips’ over here, and give me the name of who you want to be a LT!”
“Medical? Oh, those officers are probably all legit! Let me see, stress related shits? I can see that! Off for God knows how long cause ‘cause of your bunions? Yep, that’s OK, just sit your ass at home for another month! While you’re at home, you can do push-ups, that will keep you in better shape, so you don’t go on the medical any more!”
“OOOOOHHHHH, look, a neat M-4 in a Tahoe, I like that, that’s nice, I’ll bet if I give them this, that all of them will love me!”
“I don’t drink, so fuck any one else that does! And tell them I better see a receipt that proves they paid full price for every thing! OOOOHHHH, lookie here, its like Christmas around here with all the benefits I’m getting being a boss!”
“Just one of those officers fucks up, I want them DICIPLINED ASAP! OOOOOHHHH, lookie again, my license plates for my motorcycle just came in, hope those aren’t expired for Insurance! By the way, what’s that little orange tag on the bikes for?”

Yep, guess I better start to "Measure Up" real quick! But since I cant "Measure Up" that high, I guess I’ll set my sights on “clue-less” Cuello or “stalker” Shields! Or the hundreds of other hacks of all ranks throughout the department that have hidden out in an office for years, never been more than an armed secretary and have no clue how, or want to do police work!
I’m not new on the Job, but I still got a way to go till I’m in the KMA club. I’m not delusional either; I know that statistically 20% of the officers do 80% of the work. Now that you fucked over/pissed off the 20%, now what? Oh, the old “The beatings will continue until morale improves!”
Oh I forgot: "Morale is not what the people are making it out to be," Cuello said. "There is an adjustment period in any organization."
Because cops are focusing on violent crime, arrests have slipped for less serious crime like disorderly conduct, trespassing and public drinking, Cuello said. Arrests for violent crimes do not seem to have fallen as much, she said.”
I’m callin’ BULLSHIT on that one! Morale is in the shitter because this Department has turned into a fucking joke lately! It was a double-edged sword you created when you wanted a better educated Department. See, since we are smarter, it's that much easier to see thrugh all the bullshit!

Since I see J-Fed getting a "F" for his grade, I say 99.9% of this department is doing better than him.

It shall be the duty of the board to maintain a system for the ascertaining and recording of individual efficiency of each member of the police department. Such system shall be as nearly automatic as possible and its application shall be uniform throughout the department.

The efficiency reports respecting the appointees in the classified service of the department shall be submitted to the civil service commission not later than two weeks following the thirty-first of December of each year.

how do you measure police work? lrts start with calls for service. 99.9% of all calls for serice are answered by the beat car. 10% reduction for inside people and units. physical arrests are handeled by units , beat cars and tact. 10% reduction for inside people. traffic tickets and parkers are handeled 90% by beat officers. 10% reduction for inside people and 5% for units.
yes those of us in beat cars are now called dogs and lazy. we are tired of a department that treats us like we are children but expect us to to do most of the work.

The bottom line is tell your "Think Tank", you start doing performance reviews, you piss off even more cops. You lower the performance reviews and deny raises, then raise taxes, the prices of food and shelter, you cause more corruption out of necessity. Police will be stealing left and right. You have to reward good performance, not punish, punish, punish. Give us a good raise, stop charging police to park to go to traffic court to defend TICKETS written for the city and give rewards such as additional time off for great job performance.
This "I'll show them attitude will get you nowhere...may make things way worse. Take care of your police and they will take care of you.

Is the mayor that dumb that he can't figure out that having less officers to deal with more crime and handle more calls doesn't leave much time for proactive policing let alone revenue generation? He got what he bargained for. He has allowed Chicago to become a sanctuary city for illegals, gang bangers, thugs, etc. to satisfy his appetite for political power and votes. His rein of power is slowly spiraling out of control!

If Weis reads this blog, when will he realize this is Chicago. Your evaluation will depend much more on who your supervisor is than on your job performance. And how about this idea...The watch as a whole gets to evaluate the watch commander. And the patrolmens under a Sgt., get to issue evaluations for their Sgt. It would of course have to be anonymous, and you'd have to factor in the extremely good and bad evals, but it should give a general pulse of what the blue shirts think of the job their white shirts are doing.

Only work to fight violent crime that way the housing of the mope along with our court time costs the city. Do not write tickets which make the city money. That way no one can say you are not the real police and violent crime will go down. After all people do not like getting tickets. Havent you heard " why arent you busting real criminals"? well there you have it, bust real criminals earn overtime and court time and bring in notinig for king richie. People don't want tickets they want to see crime go down.

This was from an earlier post but it does have some merit. How can they give you a bad evaluation if you lead the district in arrests and part 1's plus you give King Richie nothing.

STOP GENERATING REVENUE FOR THIS PLACE!!! The 84,000 can easily be chalked up to manpower shortages, not any kind of organized work stoppage... If you as much as write one parker during the shift... you are a company man! FUCK YOU!!! What are you getting by complying with the city?

Do they think enough time has passed so ratings can be introduced as some great new idea? They tried several and it always came back to a popularity contest and the commanders crew had to get high marks.That became a big joke and it always will be. There was a point system once where you get so many points for each activity. Part I , II, were so many points. We learned that if you got a certain number of bus checks you could equal a mover , parkers or other offenses. It is all bullshit. You need solid leadership, fairness and backing to motivate and lead the troops. They can't see whats going on if they feel they have to constantly look over their shoulder at their own. Why does the Mayor hate us ????

Evaluations dont mean shit. Yes I remember the days when the sgt would call you in and hand you your evaluation card with a score breakdown and a comment section. I was one of the top 5% of go-getters in the district. You get a 95-100% and think "cool". But then you find out the couple female dogs on the streets or numerous of the male gangster coppers on the street that never came in with shit and laid down on their jobs what little ones they handled got the same score as you did. Then you come to find out from the sgt that the racist lt or commander made the sgt give them those scores. Typical and I'm sure the same will happen if they bring the evaluation system back.

I understand why you guys are slowing down and I totally agree you need a good contract with raises, but the arrests down does nothing to motivate the mayor. He only cares about the tickets.

The lack of arrests only hurts us citizens.

FOLLOW THE LEADER:

Measure up to J-Pud.
He's been pathetic in numbers since his first evaluation, even with the bean counters trying desperately to kill crime.

I remember the "old" system of evaluation. They had to be filled out in pencil. New guys automatically got 78% and were told that that was the way it was.

Tact guys could get 99%'s if the Sgt. liked them but even those Sgts were told to "average the scores" so the inside guys could keep up.

They had to be signed, in ink, even though you knew they were inaccurate and would be changed anyway.

The real death to the evaluations came after the new hiring quotas were established, more black, more women, more hispanic, more college, more Shackman, less veterans, less height requirements, less competence over all.

The new hiring offered a downward spin on police activity. The evaluations became a farce.
How can a sgt.low ball an average working kid when the "new guys" never did squat? How can a sgt low ball the avg. working kid when he's compared to the female who's been on the medical for heel spurs for over a 7 month span of time.Year after year.

These inequities eventually became so blatantly unjust that the system had to self destruct.

Just like the evaluations in the D unit. Same thing. In order to low ball the average dick he had to eventually be compared with the non-clearing, know nothing, quota , clout, reverend's guy.

The system was made to fail.

Brighter and much more Machavellian,(sp?)
sorry about the spelling, minds were active in those days believe me, to screw with people they did not like at the expense of fairness than those mimi-bosses of today who never felt the sharp pens of revenge.

Don't worry too much. This city is so far gone that for every demerit given out there will be 5 to show as a counter balance. Guess who it will be favored on the side of?

Because of that reason alone evaluations are moot.

Be smart, CYA always, and stay safe.

The old cards were a joke. I never had been on the medical, never was late, and always got around mid 80's for this category. The desk crew on the other hand always got 100's. Same with activity and the other category's on the cards. Supervisors used to tell me that you couldn't get 100's as it would draw attention. Used to tell them feel free to give me the right score and deduct from the attitide portion of the card. yes my attitide sucked as I did my job and still got screwed, while house mice got better ratings.

PS I was on the job back when ratings were 30% of your test scores. Just another way to screw with the unclouted workers.

A legitimate computer generated activity rating would prevent them from promoting the people they want to promote. How could they possibly justify some of the bosses they hope to make over the years by merit and by exempt if the computer scores them at zero productivity?

It has been on the drawing board forever. It will stay they forever.

They're getting a taste of the department they created and they don't like it. The evaluations were a very flawed snapshot of someones performance in the past and I see no change of that in the future. The chosen ones routinely got mid to high nineties while the grunts doing the real work never even approached those scores. They can go fuck theirselves. This department is so broken from upper echelon snafu's, indifference and just plain incompetence that I don't see it being fixed anytime soon. And certainly not under the current regime.

Point of Interest for the younger Officers;

We use to be rated on Efficiency cards. They were handed out to each Sgt. on each watch. Each Sgt. was suppose to rate the Officers he/she supervised based on there performance in the field.

Ha Ha.

It really was a popularity contest of who they liked best. Many hard workers got low marks because they were not liked by certain bosses.

You were asked to sign the card after you read it (you could refuse) then the Sgt, Lt, Capt, and D/C also had to sign it, and many times the grades would be changed after you signed it without you being told of the change.

Your extra points might be given to another officer to boost them for an upcoming test/promotion.

Their was an average grade of 85 which eveyone was suppose to achieve on the watch. If they gave you an 80, they could use the 5 points to give somebody else an 90 etc.

Some Sgts would even ask you to take a lower score to give your points to somebody they were trying to get promoted. (2 guys score a 99.8 on sgts test, A has an 85 mark, B has an 99 mark, B gets promoted first).

The entire system was corrupt from top to bottom.

Some officers were rated by bosses they never worked for. That boss was just given the card and told to fill it out. Some bosses were told by higher ups what kind of grade to give, no matter what your activity was.

Now we have BOZO (excuse me J-Fed) going to come in and clean up the mess? I think not!

The rating system Never/Ever worked equally for all!

If You got lower than a 76 you might not get a step raise, lower than 70 and you definitely would not get a raise and would have to be consoled or possibly dumped from the watch, dist, or unit.

The GOLDEN BOYS always got the extra points to move up!

I may have missed a few things, but thats pretty much the whole story.

??? Exactly how are they going to hurt me? They've already lost the time off issue, and as soon as they get shit on at their appeal they might even be taking a nice ass fucking in the wallet if they have to cough up punitive damages for failing to abide by a court ruling. After their injunction is lifted, then can be hit with an additional suit for damages, so they ain't hurting me there.

Sidejobs? Yet another labor law violation by attempting to stifle our ability to provide income for our families. It will boil down to another lawsuit which will seek damages against the city for unlawfully attempting to control our lawfull actions to produce income during the time we are NOT working for them. For over 20 years, I have had sidejobs that have never been found to conflict with my work performance which is proven through collection of all my activity since my coming on this job in comparison to what it is now. Couple that with the fact that I'm doing even LESS work now and their thinly veiled excuse of not letting secondary employment interfere with my employment with the CPD will take a long needed SHIT all over itself as well.

They can call this shithole job my "primary responsibility" all they want. It's nothing more than THEIR opinion and it ain't THE LAW or MY opinion. I show up and do the required workwithout incident and THAT'S THE END of my employment or responsibility to these assholes. What I do on my off time for money will NEVER pass the eyes of the court when they can't prove my secondary employment has affected my bullshit employment with the CPD.

So good luck, and don't forget the give the citizens of this city a courtesy reach around for wasting their tax dollars on more lawsuits your destined to lose at every turn.

I, for one, will never have a second thought of holding these assholes accountable in the courtroom for their unlawful attempts to damage my right to conduct business outside the 8 hours I waste for them.

And ass for promotions, they can fuck themselves there as well. I earn more with my secondary employment alone in a year than any earned promotion could ever pay me here so why in the fuck would I give a shit about taking rigged tests and a corrupt process just to wedge myself into a poorer position of accountability to exempt assholes? No thanks there boys, I'll take my blue job of simple responsibility and high contractual labor protections coupled with cheaper medical protection and a white collar secondary job to earn more than any gold star exempt can and I go home happy and richer without the stress of maybe I'll be detailed to a shithole district, maybe I'll be forced to supervise people I can't stand or maybe I'll have to kiss someone's ass so I don't get fucked with.

They can keep their 100G a year, the little silver bar, the white shirt, and the blame that goes with it. I'll keep setting myself up for a better retirement while laughing all the way to the bank.

Off Topic: From a P.O. who used to drive the Tahoe, they get just slightly better gas mileage because it's a 6 cylinder compared to the Crown Vic's 8. They are not safer, nor are they any better in bad weather. If the road is wet with snow, ice or rain, the Tahoe WILL slip and slide all over the road. They are very top heavy and I had to drive it like I drove the wagon. Very cautiously. I don't know who is saying that the Tahoe is a safer vehicle, but do not be fooled by the "SUV" status. They are a lot more comfortable to drive because of the extra room, however do not drive them like the crown vic. Even on 10-1's I still had to fight with my adrenaline and drive safely to get to the scene. I'm not saying no to the Tahoe, but just use caution and common sense when driving it. Be Safe.

C) enough already with the "we're down 3000 (or is it 3500?) officers. NO WE'RE NOT. And every time some knucklehead says we are city hall laughs at how stupid we show ourselves as. It's a red herring. We're down about 400 - 750 less than budgeted strength. Period. Fact. You can count everyone if you'd like, but that's what it is.

Not sticking up for Cuello or Weis, but since the last evaluations (2002) the department has been looking fro a batter evaluation system. Even when Cline was still here. Look back at past orders.

8/13/2008 12:07:00 PM

Are you soft or what? "the department has been looking fro a batter evaluation system" Oh yeah? Where have they been looking? At the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean right next to the Titanic? You sound like an R&D suckhole.

You really think it takes 6 years to come up with a better evaluation system? This is the same stroke police department run by incompetent political hack corrupt mother fuckers who took so many years to approve a semi-auto pistol for duty carry!

The US Military, not exactly a model of efficiency, went through their semi-auto pistol trials to replace the model 1911 .45 cal pistol and the military did it TWICE long before the Chicago Police Department even did it ONCE! The military first picked the Beretta, the other manufacturers sued and the military did it a second time. They again picked the Beretta.

And they did it years sooner than the CPD could even figure out that we needed high capacity pistols. Even then, the CPD pistol order was as thick as a small town phone book and required us to use low power sub sonic 147 grain horseshit 9mm ammo.

Now the trend is to go back to what the US Army figured out back in 1911, use a .45 cal pistol. I do and I carry 230 grain +P hot shit in it.

This department is a fucking joke, it has been for my 25 years. Now it is even more ridiculous of a farce of a police organization. Years ago there was still pride in the work we did and there were some warrior bosses around that could still lead other warriors.

That has all changed now; it has all gone to hell. I wouldn't follow Jody Weis into battle nor would I trust him to find the right people to give me orders in an emergency situation. I trust myself and my 25 years of experience, nothing else.

I remember a tact Sgt. who used the exact same wording on all his evaluations for his whole time only changing the order of the sentences. Every time. Without fail. All his troops got the same thing. Every time. No problem.

When on the street I never got higher than a 94. Inside I got straight 99's. Evaluations were a joke and now I don't give a shit, shove their fucking evaluations. I will do little, what can they do? I have no more step raises coming.

If they try to counsel or discipline me I will counter that my low activity is the result of poor training and demand to be retrained. Then I will get my knee operation. Than my other knee operation. then my shoulder operation. Then retire.

Fuck Jody. Does this fed moron think he can fuck with long time Chicago Police Officers? It has been tried by better than him. And failed.

The first step in curing a disease is to recognize that one is ill.

The second step is to identify the symptoms.

The third step is to determine the cause(s) of said symptoms.

The fourth step is to understand the mechanism(s) involved in said cause(s).

The fifth step is to discover and/or devise the means to disable and/or eliminate said mechanism(s).

The sixth step is to implement the means devised to disable and/or eliminate said mechanisms.

The seventh step is to observe and evaluate how effective said means are proving to be, in disabling and/or eliminating the mechanism(s) determined to be the cause(s) of said symptom(s).

If the means being applied prove to be effective, they must continue to be applied, until such time as the symptom(s)' absence indicates the elimination of the cause(s) of the diseased condition.


Those who recognize that they are ill, understand the need for treatment, accept said treatment in it's entirety, and commit themselves to said treatment until such time as the absence of their symptoms indicates the termination of the cause(s) of their disease, will, in all likelihood, no longer suffer from said disease.


Those who choose to deny their diseased condition(s), or to refuse effective treatment(s), or to abandon said effective treatment(s) prior to successfully completing same, will, no doubt, remain ill.


It has been observed that there are some who are susceptible to others touting ineffective, attractively painless and over simplified 'cures' to their illness(es).

These 'some' will, no doubt, remain ill and diseased.


To restate the obvious, the disease is the infection of the Daley/Stroger/Madigan/Jones/etc., corruption machine(s), the cure is currently being provided by those whose experience has given them an excellent understanding of both the disease, it's mechanisms and the various means to disable and/or eliminate said mechanisms, and the only question remaining is whether enough citizens, whatever their employment, will accept and embrace said cure.


SCC is a large part of the vehicle providing access to that cure.


Which is why those infected with the disease of corruption are so intent upon disabling said vehicle, and/or discouraging those suffering from the effects of said disease from believing they are, in fact, ill.


It's as if a group of lepers were protesting their being accused of suffering from leprosy, while seeking to infect everyone they come in contact with.


All the body paint on the planet can't conceal the oozing, pustulant sores covering every inch of these diseased government 'officials' bodies and souls.

And the thing about the efficiency grades were that they were supposed to be "even" and average to about 80-85% So for every 90 there had to be a 70. As usual the house mice got the 90s and the street people got the 70s. They even used to take some of your arrest, ticket, and the like and give it to the insiders so they could get credit for doing something other than answering the phones. And none of this was published so you never knew the difference.

It seems like the City is adopting the new and improved "rating game". Don't be fooled (which I know most are not). Just look at it as a new disguise. It is another way for the administration to exert their authority over the city without repercussion. Nothing will change anytime soon. So where does that leave the rest of the dept.
? Well, right where you are now.

If you haven't noticed that our society is and has been changing. It has been for the longest time and will not stop. be smart and invest your time and money and prepare yourselves for the unexpected. Unless the PD stands as one, nothing will be done.

I've read quite a few blogs referencing racial divide/ political correctness as being a motivating factor, which is hindering any real comradeship. This my friends is the tactic being utilized to bring the police to their knees.

Along with with Problem solving award and numerous letters of recognition and over 2000 arrests. Nope you know why, cause I have no clout. Worked my ass off in fast southside districts for 10years for nothing. I'll be taking my merit promo to Sgt please....only in my dreams on this job.

STEP 2

MY BROTHER I BELIEVE ITS TIME TO TURN UP THE HEAT ON THE CITY!

MANY OF YOU HAVE HANDLED ACCIDENT INVOLVING CITY VEHICLE, BE IT A BUS OR A GARBAGE TRUCK.

THE CITY BULLIES US WHEN WE ASK FOR MINOR THINGS LIKE HEALTH CARE AND RAISES.

I THINK OFFICERS SHOULD INVESTIGATE THESE "ACCIDENTS" WITH DUE CARE. TICKETS SHOULD BE ISSUED TO THE CITY VEHICLE IF THEY ARE AT FAULT.

THE REPORT SHOULD CLERLY STATE WHO WAS AT FAULT AND LEAVE NO ROOM FOR IT TO GO TO COURT.

JUST PICTURE YOUR WIFE TRYING TO FIGHT A TOW BY THE CITY OR UR SON THINKING HE DIDNT DESERVE A PARKER B CUZ NO SIGN WAS POSTED. PICTURE THE INSPECTOR GIVING U A DAY B-CUZ UR PLATES JUST EXPIRED. PICTURE THE CITY WANTING TO POST UR NAME IN THE NEWSPAPER IN THE NEXT CONTRACT.

THE POWER OF THE PEN MY BROTHERS
IF THEY WANT TICKETS MAY BE THOSE HAZRDOUS CITY DRIVERS NEED TO BE GOING TO COURT ON THE CITIES DIME!!!

AM I WRONG FOR WANTING TO FOLLOW AUNT BEA ORDERS.

EVER TAKE A PISS TEST ???

Ask them about "random" computerized selections.

They might tell you about the 1-9
frequency code programed into the random test selection.

This is how you'll be screwed in the computerized way on any evaluation.

If you're given, say, a #1 designator you might be called
X number of times per year to give the pee sample.

However if you're given an 8 or 9 you might have to pee once a period.

This is NOT RANDOM SELECTION !

Once again , you all can check your number if you ask for it.

Knowledge is power.

As far as I'm concerned, do away with evaluations and do away with awards and do away with merit.

We can go to work and complete our daily duties and the tour is over. Then it's an even playing field for all.

Pull our names out of an electronic lottery every so many years for promotions.

This job has become debilitating, so whats the difference?

Low morale is in response to the constant negativity on the job and in the department. If the city waits longer and longer to heal the hurt or continues to put more pressure and bs on the officer, there will come a time the officer feels they have nothing left to lose. If it gets to that point, it won't be pretty (and I think we are close). With recruits down and retirements up, the thin blue line is getting thinner. J-Fed- stop and think about what you actually want and do what it takes to get it done. Working on that premise, what you want done is pretty obvious- damn the police and the citizens of Chicago. You have your contract which has you in charge of OEMC also......hmmmm, doesn't OEMC have civilian dispatchers working double shifts and O/T soaring? And, dispatchers are "working through lunch". Too bad this doesn't apply to the few police officers assigned there, too. It takes a phone call to even get a job there. Nice secret. I think 35th and Michigan needs a reality check. The real deal is out on the street. People are working 99; cars don't have computers; cars are breaking down and there are no pools; less time is spent on patrol and more on outside roll calls, pod watching, school, library and park visits, etc. This is very sad.

I must admit my enjoyment as I sit quietly in my beat car, watching rome burn. Cuello reminds me of Tariq Aziz(mouthpiece for Saddam) claiming victory as American troops shelled the outskirts of Baghdad..Don't worry, all is well.

Tariq Aziz also said "the dessert will by our swamps and the cities will be our jungles," he was right about that.

""With murders up, arrests down and officers writing fewer parking tickets, Chicago cops will soon have to measure up in performance evaluations for the first time since 2002, top department officials said Monday.""


They've been threatening evaluations for the past year to be brought back, adding this time they can use medical time AGAINST the officers performance.

Who gets to rate the W/C's????

I'd like to evaluate some of the prairie dogs in 021 on 3rd such as J.C on the medical every year for at least 3 months.Her 2008 scam 4 months for bunion removal now followed up by who knows how many more months on light duty for recovery.Of course she's been bangin a white shirt (he must be blind) so I guess she deserves a pass.Another worthless cow M.S hurts her ass falling off a horse that was good for 8 months.S.B about 7 months for having the shits. This is all absolutely true.

"Then, coppers on the desk should be rotated in with those on the street to make these "evaluations" credible."


I would love to see a lot of the "REAL" police ever work the desk in a busy district (009th DIST desk does not count). You'd be crying for a reprieve.

I'm sure this performance idea came out of J-fed's "think tank group" I have heard from a reliable source that J-Fed uses many of their ideas and once was heard saying, "they do a great job for me and they come up was some really good policy ideas." Wonderfull! He has two P.O.'s and one SGT. all with less than 8 years on the job and they have influence on what happens. These goofs haven't done a lick of police work but can come up with "policy" Wish we knew the names of the policy group, or "J-Feds three" so we could watch for them on the merit list.
