Beat Realignment - Here?

  • For 20 years, police superintendents have been promising to re-draw the boundaries of Chicago's 281 police beats to accommodate shifting crime patterns and population changes.

    It never happened.

    Instead of touching off a political war between black and Hispanic aldermen who believe their high-crime wards have been shortchanged and white aldermen who won’t tolerate a reduction in police services, Mayor Daley chose the path of least resistance. He formed a Targeted Response Unit that temporarily redeployed officers to crime “hot spots.”

According to Weis though, that political war is going to erupt, soon, and it won't be pretty.
  • With police hiring slowing to a crawl and Chicago homicides outpacing New York and Los Angeles, Police Supt. Jody Weis vowed Friday to deliver on a promise made and broken by at least four of his predecessors: beat realignment.

    “They haven’t been moved around since 1978. That’s three decades of people making empty promises. Nothing against my predecessors, but at some time, you’ve got to look at a problem and say, ‘I know I can’t make every one of the 50 aldermen happy, but we have to make sure we have the right resources in the right locations,’ ” Weis said.

But as has been seen for a few years now, moving cops around does nothing to address underlying issues, it merely drives the violence away from a particular spot for a set period of time. Gangbangers are mobile. If they know cops are at point A, then they'll go over to point B to take a few potshots at rivals. When the cops get redeployed to point B, the gangs go to point C, point D or double back to point A.

And the Districts which had to supply bodies to cover point A in the first place, are now covering the same amount of space with even less bodies than before. If we had 13,000 blue shirts, this wouldn't be an issue, and it actually wasn't an issue a decade ago when we had 12,000+ blues. We aren't anywhere near that now and haven't been for years.

The Tribune also covers this.

hey J-Fuck, I will work without a contract, I will work with your stupid ass liberal friends trying to fuck me while on-duty, but if you re-zone the area that I live in to give me even less police service, I will not do a thing for this fing city. Not only that, I will influence my friends to lay down as well. I'm still young (3yrs on da job) and want to work, but will do zero arrests in the ghetto and count the days until I can protect my home front.

Looks like they are trying everything possible to justify J-feds salary..he took over and totally exemplified what is wrong with this dept.

Everyone knows that 10% of this dept. did 90% of the real police work!

These police know who we are...we were the SAME faces every morning at 26 and Cal...The same FACES!!! EVERY morning ..WE KNOW WHO WE ARE...

These were the cops that were f#cked with for making too much overtime..dumped from units because of a select few bad cops,put on BIS cause they made the sh#thead know he would be policed aggressively..

When you go to the sgts exam how many of these faces can you name...

When you look over the meritorious list how many of these are us!!!

They have meritoriously clouted us into submission..they have proven to us that as working police we were the fools....

Jody only confirmed this!!

Can you justify the meritorious promotions!

Name one of the real police that got promoted meritiously..can anyone!!!!NAME ONE?

Not asking for much..but jeez 20% meritorious promotions and we cant name ONE!!!

Not one That was deserving of meritorious!
THIS IS THE SLAP IN OUR FACE!

Now name how many working cops got sent to callback trying to aggressively work the streets...

bet ya got names now...

Now name the lazy do nothing who is probably gonna get meritorious...

Ya should have made meritorious for merit and we would have had a real police dept.

Jody was not the beginning he is just the end!

Jody has to go ..in my opinion he has lost our trust..like a wife who cheated..we can never really trust them again..

He can try anything but its already too late...he can give me a 40% raise and I will say thanks for the money but you cant be trusted!

BUT give me a meririous promotion for a person that I really respected...YOU might get a chance to gain our respect..

NAME ONE!!!asking all you bloggers out there!

Jody

You have not felt any heat yet, wait until you unveil the New Beat Alignment, which probably at least it should include removing some Districts and Command Spots. The Mayor will leave you out there all alone ass wipe. The aldercreatures will tear your ass up. Be truthful with the media, remember your Motto in the G. Fddelity Bravery , Integrity guess you left that all behind when you sold out to ShortShanks.

I have posted this here before, even if we had 13,000 which I doubt thaqt number with the relief factor figured in , those are the increase in days off, medicals, IOd etc, have risen so dramatically due to contractural agreements that the equivilent effect has been to actually reduce the number of bodies available each day to man the cars. That combined with the high number of bull shit units that have been formed also sucking bodies from patrol, and poor leadership in the field by the few supervisors on each watch has led to this shortage.

That being said the real problem is the failed leadership you have provided. You know knthing about real police work, you know less about how to lead the 2nd largest police department in the country.

Sure the men and women want new cars, new radios, better working conditions in general, Iam sure 2000 years ago the centurions stood around a fire griping about the same things, that is the nature of man, and of what we do. But you know what they really need?

A real leader, one who has there back through accomplishments and failures, One who recognizes real police work, and offers atta boys with real heart and helps pick you up when you have a failed decision. We do not expect to be honored for our actions we signed up to do the job, just dont beat us down and help the media, reverends, politicians and jag offs beat us up.

You have failed us. All you care about is looking up the Mayors ass after all he made you an offer you couldnt refuse. He is corrupt and had dragged you to his level. I dont think you are corrupt, i just think you are incompetent in this posistion. Retire will you you have accomplished nothing and never will. You continue to so more harm and NO GOOD.

Other departments don't have home invasion rings.

Other departments don't have officers drunk out of their minds, beating on citizens, then trying to use bribery and intimidation to silence victims and witnesses.

Other departments don't allow officers engaged in the commission of a crime to wave off other officers responding to the scene.

Other departments don't have public displays of favoritism and deference toward officers who commit crimes.

Other departments don't consider a thirty day suspension an appropriate "punishment" for manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide. Other departments wouldn't promote the offender.

The Chicago PD has no disciplinary process worthy of the name. Until it does, videos of beatings and shootings by Chicago police officers will be a staple of television news and the internet for the foreseeable future.

BOTTOM LINE: IN WHITE NEIGHBORHOODS WHERE THEY DON'T SLING DOPE ON THE CORNER & LOOK THE OTHER WAY WHILE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD FALLS TO SHIT ARE ABOUT TO GET STRIPPED OF POLICE SERVICE. SO BURGALRIES & OTHER NON-VIOLENT CRIMES WILL SKYROCKET IN WHITE AREAS. IT'S A GOOD TIME TO BE A BURGLAR, HEAD STRAIGHT TO A WHITE NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE THE PICKINS ARE BETTER, AND THE POLICE WILL BE NO WHERE AROUND.....DIDN'T WE SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU STRIP AN AREA OF POLICE SERVICE, FOR EXAMPLE, DURKIN PARK 2 SUMMERS AGO WHEN THE RESIDENTS CALLED POLICE OVER 40 TIMES & IT TOOK CARS FROM OUTSIDE UNITS TO RESPOND BECAUSE ALL THE POLICE WERE OVER "EAST." AND WHY DO THEY NEED TO REALIGN BEATS SO HIGH CRIME AREAGET BETTER COVERAGE? WE ALREADY SEND MOST OF OUR RESOURCES IN THE HIGH CRIME BLACK & HISPANIC NEIGHBORHOOD ANYWAY WHERE THEY GET THE MOST POLICE SERVICE & AT THE SAME TIME DON'T WANT YOU THERE?? ALD. IN THE WHITE AREA BETTER STAND UP...

Oh wait, no one is qualified to police the streets of chicago except full time POs trained by the city. Never mind that the suburbs do this.

Shell game at its best. Aunt bea and J-FED ignored manpower and hiring. Instead used smoke screens; beat realignment, MSF, paperwork. They have one heck of a press corp to cover the real issues. Now attention will be on new beats. Then MSF will receive media attention. maybe the academy can design a training program for the timid officers on the street? I cannot believe the superintendent called street officers, "timid"! Great motivational speech. Now back to work for the taxpayers.

Back in the day, the city had three beats that measured only only 1/32 of a mile in area--one in 002, another in 011 and then my beat: Beat 1010;

Beat 1010 was bounded by Douglas Blvd., Christiana, Trumbull and 16th St. You could park at the corner of 15th and Homan and see all four blocks in Beat 1010.

As a rookie, aside from radio assignments, my partner and I always stayed on our beat--until one night while driving in circles, I went insane.

Long before computers became ubiquitous, the CPD methodology in establishing beat boundaries required the house mice at 11th & State to weight annual incidents on EACH block in the city as follows:

Murder & Part I VIOLENT crimes: 4 points,

Part I PROPERTY CRIMES; 2 points,

Calls for service/other: 1 point.

This resulted in having districts with anywhere between 15 and 36 beats.

There were real tiny patrol beat areas while others were as big as an entire small district.

Dear J-Doof,

Good luck with the hornet's nest of beat realignment. You are about to open a huge can of whoop ass upon yourself, one of never before seen dimensions. When you leave Chicago, either in disgrace or because of promotion to the national stage as reward for your incompetance, remember ABCDEFGH.

Your "ASS" was mostly cooked after you shot yourself in the foot with
"BEAT" realignment" and "COZZI", both of which helped carry you to the "DEMISE" of your local law enforcement career, but when "EVERYONE" on both sides of the "FENCE" finally learned that a "G-DOOF" was totally incapable of addressing and stemming the escalating "HOMICIDE" rate, it will be the hook for you. Bye-bye J-FED, hopefully sooner than later.

You Sir, are a moron. Do some research before you open your mouth (or begin to type). Every major department has had its share of scandals. CPD has not only had a disciplinary system in place, but a NEW disciplinary investigative unit was formed and the results were: THE SAME. We have people that lie about the police. This isnt to say there have been dirty cops in Chicago, there have. These dirty cops have been investigated and for the most part, taken off the streets. If you compare the judicial system in America with the system of internal investigation, you'll find numerous discrepencies. All erring on the side of OUR system on the police department being far more stringent AND in violation of any civil rights we may be protected by under the constitution.

1.) Part time police are not what you want 08:17. That would enable them to downgrade your benefits and pension further.

2.) To the guy who said "white alderman won't tolerate anymore reductions in service", you're wrong. They are all terrified of Daley. They will meekly do as told in order to keep whatever perks they get. Remember, if they piss him off, he will ba able to turn the Obama Justice Department loose on them. None of the 50, of any race, could survive a serious look from the "G".

3.) To the guy who thinks we should consider re-districting but doesn't trust Weis: Weis has nothing to do with it! Daley will draw the map with input from Meeks and Carothers. No change will be good for any neighborhood with the police, real families, or taxpayers living in it.

Have to agree with you. Discipline depends on who you are and where you work. Expired plates of City sticker? a one day susp. in patrol. Detective division? COUNSELING. Until the CPD has set up GUIDELINES as to WHAT will be dealt out for WHICH offense (AND STICK TO THEM, NO "CLOUT" DEALS TO LESSEN THE BLOW), the mess will continue to be televised on the local news, CNN, BBC and wherever else that advertising can be sold around it!

In Chicago, where Mr Obama will hold a rally on November 4, the police department has been meeting to discuss security plans for the night. Law enforcement departments in Philadelphia and Cincinnati are also making preparations in case of problems.

Looks like they are trying everything possible to justify J-feds salary..he took over and totally exemplified what is wrong with this dept.

Everyone knows that 10% of this dept. did 90% of the real police work!

These police know who we are...we were the SAME faces every morning at 26 and Cal...The same FACES!!! EVERY morning ..WE KNOW WHO WE ARE...

These were the cops that were f#cked with for making too much overtime..dumped from units because of a select few bad cops,put on BIS cause they made the sh#thead know he would be policed aggressively..

When you go to the sgts exam how many of these faces can you name...

When you look over the meritorious list how many of these are us!!!

They have meritoriously clouted us into submission..they have proven to us that as working police we were the fools....

Jody only confirmed this!!

Can you justify the meritorious promotions!

Name one of the real police that got promoted meritiously..can anyone!!!!NAME ONE?

Not asking for much..but jeez 20% meritorious promotions and we cant name ONE!!!

Not one That was deserving of meritorious!
THIS IS THE SLAP IN OUR FACE!

Now name how many working cops got sent to callback trying to aggressively work the streets...

bet ya got names now...

Now name the lazy do nothing who is probably gonna get meritorious...

Ya should have made meritorious for merit and we would have had a real police dept.

Jody was not the beginning he is just the end!

Jody has to go ..in my opinion he has lost our trust..like a wife who cheated..we can never really trust them again..

He can try anything but its already too late...he can give me a 40% raise and I will say thanks for the money but you cant be trusted!

BUT give me a meririous promotion for a person that I really respected...YOU might get a chance to gain our respect..

NAME ONE!!!asking all you bloggers out there!

10/25/2008 05:24:00 AM

Right on brother! or Sister!

Same people did all the work and they got screwed. With thousands of arrests I got BIS. Sorry it was a mistake the city claims. FOP says sign this form. I can't forget. J-Fed make me meritorious for all my work.

Everyone that lives in an area like 16 17 west end of 088 and 022 that doesnt get any police service because your beat car is always pulled somewhere else had better start calling 911 for everything. When they use stats to redraw the beats you will get even less police coverage. Call 911 for everything you see. Suspicious person, reckless driver, thefts and garage burg, gang disturbance. If you dont call Jfraud will assume you dont need any police where you live and you will get no police coverage.

1978 is not the last time they changed things. They made some beat boundary changes within Districts in 1993 for CAPS.

In 1985 they redrew the District/Beat map too.

1.) Weis is not making the changes. Daley is, with input from Carothers,Meeks, the Outfit, and the developers.

2. You don't want part timers. They will erode your salary, benefits, pension.

The problem is that beat reallignment really means "less beat cars on the street"
The last time they did it, they reduced the number of sectors in most districts, made the beats bigger geographically and we automatically had less cars on the street.
When caps was starting and they made the "rapid response cars" they actually reduced the number of cars on the street again.
What will they do now?

Although it is a good idea on paper, the reality will be another less than successful "solution" to the problems.

About eight years ago there was a team of civilians (6-8 guys)working in Data Systems on a Beat Realignment Project. These civilians were basically related to the team of civilian rocket scientist who gave us CHRIS Case Reporting. They worked for months on remapping beat bouderies based on all sorts of formulas and calls for service, natural bounderies, ect. Some of their new beat proposal were so absurd. Imagine a beat which looked like a barbell! eight square blocks on top, connected by a single street to eight square blocks on the bottom. This is what we can look forward when the godsends from Oracle remap district bounderies.

That public school education you received, has really paid handsome dividends. My friend, you have FABULOUS grammar and writing skills. Keep it up, you make the rest of us, look like geniuses. To comment on your point: Why do the people who pay the most in property taxes, have the least police protection? Those of us who pay: our taxes, our mortgages, our car loans; take care of our property, don't call the police for every stupid argument to referee, don't steal from our neighbors when they go to work,(I'm laughing hysterically right now) or when they go to the the store. Are "robbed" of the police service we deserve and pay for, to keep those who inhabit and infect our "Best Neighborhoods"- whose only contribution to the tax base, is when they buy their alcohol, cigarettes and cheetos at the local, plexi-glass armored, corner store. By the way, I see a lot of plexi-glass protection, in the stores of 016 when I do my local shopping, NOOOTTTT. My friend, you're just jealous you cannot live in a well maintained and safe area. Don't hate, put down the crack pipe and grape pop, get a job, learn to speak and write in English, save $50,000 plus for a down payment, invade the 016th District and then you can talk about living in the white neighborhoods. I myself, find it very safe, relaxing and best of all; I don't have to step over dead bodies, empty baggies, hypes and hookers to get to my front door.

Have a nice day, my friend.

what difference does it make, anyway, where "beat boundaries" are drawn? Beat cars, and whatever rapid cars are manned, are usually sent all over their district, without regard to beat boundaries (which in fact makes a joke of the original CAPS idea of beat integrity (if it ever wasn't a joke to begin with). Many districts need more personnel, to begin with; then, many of the "units" need to be disbanded, with their personnel returned to district patrol; and, many of the personel asigned to districts need to get back on the street, and out of the office. Maybe the CPD should publish a body count of every officer, not only to what unit they are actually assigned, but what asignment they actually perform (desk, lockup, abandoned buildings, senior citizens, faith based oficer, liaison to the alderman, etc.) After all of that, maybe someone can explain why citizens wait hours for servic;e when they call; oh, by the way, maybe someone can replace the incompetent and inexperienced exempts....and, for good measure, tell City Hall to GFU....

I'll try to answer this question but forgive me if I misunderstood; I'm not fluent in shithead.

Yes, drugs exist in white neighborhoods. The only difference is we do not have open air markets such as you. If people are dealing drugs, it's behind a closed door. Secondly, the drug trade that exists in white neighborhoods does not have your propensity for violence. I don't hear gunshots at night and I don't hear about children getting shot by stray bullets in my neighborhood.

If the police stop anyone with drugs in white neighborhoods, they do not let them go. The tactical teams would be disbanded if they let everyone go with less than 2.5 grams of marijuana on them. Save the conspiracy theories for your own neighborhood where everyone has some sort of a debilitating illness qualifying them for SSI.

Now as for anyone being scared to form a neighborhood watch program, I doubt that is true, but the original point was there would be no police working in our areas to respond to a call for help. You might be suggesting that we form our own patrols and take matters in our own hands. That's fine by me except I do not want news crews and any "reverends" marching in front of my house because I "done kilt" another future doctor who just got his GED at the age of 40 because he found it necessary to crawl through my window. Unlike you I actually have something to lose if I get sued.

Just imagine what everyone would think if all the white people got fed up with all the shitheads in our neighborhoods and fought back. The "reverends" and ACLU would be claiming it's a return of the KKK and all of us would be charged with hate crimes and sued.

Stop telling me how to handle my neighborhood considering the present condition of yours BOY (oops, better not use that term, some might consider it racist and I will be sued).

very simple solution, just takes some organization. Resident police officers of the negatively affected areas will have to go on the medical. This can be done a max of 5 times a year, and with a doctor's note, can be extended numerous days during each occurrence. Now, for those of us whose medical conditions require exercise and stretching to expedite recovery time, we'll have to go on (armed) therapeutic walks in the neighborhood (don't forget to notify the district first). If enough members get together on something like this, 2-3 officers can be added, every day of the year, to the protection of the neighborhoods and families who keep this city from becoming the next Detroit (or so I hope).

A manpower shortage ? There has to be a way to get more people in the beat cars. Maybe its time for the hiring of (gasp) part timers ? Create an auxiliary force to ride with the full time POs ?

I guess chicago would rather wallow in crime than find alternative manpower solutions...

hey goofus, are you really serious bout 'auxiliary force to ride with the full time POs '? just let us be 13,500 police strong on the street as the budget should dictate.

'hourly' tma, revenue writers, janitorial, fleet, cta, etc workers are what the mayor & council want...TO PRIVATIZE WITHOUT ANY BENEFITS...SO ONLY THE POLITICALLY CONNECTED WILL BENEFIT WITH THEIR CONTRACTS.

The real solution: HIRE THE FULL 13,500 THAT THE BUDGET ALLOTS! REAL SIMPLE.

Also Jfed was hired up & paid up front as the fall guy to do exactly what he is doing, ALL THE DIRTY WORK FOR THE MAYOR who wants to break all unions & privatize. Look at the city proposals re the new contracts...HOW MANY YOUNG PO'S will make it to their pension if the city gets what they want, AN OBSTACLE COURSE WITH SO MANY POTHOLES BUILT IN TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE AS A CAREER CHOICE.

That is why so much negative publicity re union workers in the media...all unions are trying to bend, they played by the old rules, but its a new game in town with a new sheriff who knows what the game rules are BUT won't share till after you have lost.

They want pro-active police, yet all watch commanders must explain excessive overtime...the police are the scapegoats for the killing & mayhem in this city TO ONLY HAVE THE LEADERSHIP IN THIS CITY--MAYOR, JFED, ALL POLITICIANS WASH THEIR HANDS OF THE CITY'S BLOOD...AND THAT INCLUDES ALL POLICE OFFICER'S BLOOD WHO MAKE UP OUR 'VERY THIN' LINE OF BLUE!

THE REAL TRICK IS TO MIX THE DISTRICT UP...

LET SAY WE HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF LAID BACK OFFICERS IN 13 WITH SUM TIME ON THEIR HANDS. GUESS WHAT 13 GRABS PART OF 11 AND BANG EASY DISTRICT NOW IS HALFWAY BUSY. OLDTIMERS WONT BID OUT.

THE SAME THING WOULD BE DONE TO 08 AND 16. ALL THOSE SO CALLED LAID BACK DISTRICT WITH OFFICER BOASTING THAT THEY ARE RETIRED FROM THE GHETTO SURPRISE!

THE GHETTO IS COMING FOR U.

THE FUNNY THING IS MANPOWER IS SHORT CITY WIDE SO IT STILL GOING TO BE 50 POUNDS OF SHIT IN A 10 POUND BAG.

I WONDER IF ALL THOSE SO CALLED SCHOLARS(COMMANDERS) WILL USE THOSE FAKE DEGREES TO GIVE J-FED INPUT. BUT KNOW R SYSTEM ALL THE COMMANDERS WILL PUT THEIR HEADS DOWN AND TELL J-FED IT A GREAT IDEA. THE NEXT THING THE COMMANDERS WILL CONTACT THEIR ALDERMAN AND CLOUT BUSSINESES PEOPL AND TELL THE J-FED CUTTING THEIR MANPOWER.

IF U THINK CUELLO IS ABLE TO HANDLE THIS MR STEROID U GOT ANOTHER THING CUMMIN.

OH J-FED THE CITY HAD SPENT CRAZY MONEY A FEW YEARS BACK ON A REMAP UNDER HILLARD! CHECK AROUND 4 THE MAP, UNLESS CLINE SNAGGED THAT TOO LIKE HE STOLE THE PLANS FOR THE PODS!

Wrong, young whippersnapper.

In the late '60's and early '70's, 002 was on a split radio zone (Zones 5 and 8) with 36 beats plus squadrols 270-274 and supervisors 280-284. We also had an "umbrella car" that covered 47th St. from the Ryan to Cottage Grove. Add Lt. 290, tac and vice cars. Your "rapids" were called "power cars".

While it was the bloodiest ever back then, all of us were a united "BLUE". If the shitheads and mutts didn't respect us, they feared us in a time when well deserved, old fashioned wood shampoos were commonplace, particularly in 10-1s.

Dists. 002 and 011 always led the city in violent crime with 003, 007 and 010 as distant runners-up.

During those times, 002 and 011 each had almost a hundred homicides per year.

Both 008 and 016 were known as "the old soldiers' home".

While we had times when we averaged a murder of a police officer a month, we feel sorry for you young guys.

Unite and DEMAND RESPECT from Daley, Weis and the current crop of jagoff clout bosses. Without morale and leadership, the leftie pussies now have the CPD they deserve. Fuck 'em!

Meanwhile, back each other up and stay safe.

I was at the Alderdramtic hearings on Friday and saw Monique Bond for the first time in person. I read a lot of flack out her looks. First, she does her job very well, she maintains a proffessional image, and she is a very attractive woman. As an attractive hetersexual 36 yr old woman in a law enforcement agancy, I think Ms. Bond is doing a stellar job represting the City as well as showing that a strong beautful woman keeps rising with class, facts, integrity, and elequence. You Go Girl! We get better with age in everway.

OKAY....
Question...Did you SLEEP through 12years of your CPS education? I find it hard to believe you ever made it onto this job. You're no doubt a clout baby and will be promoted soon.

"alderdramtic" = aldermanic

"I read a lot of flack out her looks"=====HUH?

"proffessional" = professional

"hetersexual" = heterosexual

"36 yr old woman" = 36 yr. old woman, or 36 year-old woman

"agancy" = agency

"represting" = representing

"beautful" = beautiful

"elequence" = eloquence

"everway" = every way

I was hoping this was a sarcastic post, but I don't think so......no wonder you were impressed with that moron!!!

PLEASE!!! Have someone edit your posts or don't post at all!!! You make us all look like idiots!!!!

P.S. Good luck in your promotion.

Back some years ago there was a small scandal when Pam Zeckman of someone like her exposed the fact that not all beat cars were being manned. There were downed beat cars every day. This made news, the bosses promised to get to the bottom this etc.

And so to ensure that all beats were manned they simply made the beats BIGGER! Then they declared that all beats were being completely manned every day. Nice trick, eh?

The beat boundaries as it is now are actually fairly well done. Beat realignment as the news media and south side ministers imagine it is only smoke and mirrors,

The only way to get more beats in to the ghetto is to do something similar now, make beats in other districts bigger again. That might mean the closing of at least one and perhaps two north side districts and fold those beats into adjoining districts resulting in much larger beats. Then send that manpower over to indian country to fight the beast.

Good luck. When Mr & Mrs Yuppie find out that the police protection in their already heavily burglarized neighborhood is going down they might not like it. Not when they are paying around $2,000 a month in property taxes!

This will be entertaining to watch.

First, you, most likely, do not have enough time to get to 3rd Watch, if you did, you wouldn't call for a Sgt. every time - MAKE A DECISION. It's simple: (1) Arrest, (2) No arrest/ case report, (3) code.

But, bid to 3rd watch and stop your bitchin', better yet, quit the job and get a job where you do not need to make a decision. Then again, you couldn't make this much money -- so the department is stuck with your lazy, no-decisioner maker. I'm glad that you work in 006 and not where the police live.

Beat realignment will most likely only affect a few districts.

Think about it like this:
Why would they send a bunch of FTOs to only a few districts? So they can add more beats: IE 004 and 006 going to 5 or even 6 beats a sector.

Expect 007 and 009 to be expanded just in time for their new stations to open.

Expect 008 to be smaller

An 18-year-old woman was found shot to death lying on an Englewood street early this morning, police said.

Officers responding to a 911 call found Ladevonne Thomas in the 5700 block of South Bishop Street around 3:30 a.m., according to police spokesman John Mirabelli. She had been shot in the face, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Police said they had no motive in the killing and were asking anyone with information to call Wentworth Area detectives at 312-747-8380.

Thomas, who lived in the 2700 block of South Dearborn Street, was pronounced dead at the Stein Institute.

No further information was available.

**I'm sure englewood will be crawling with police. In that district, they probably think a block radius should be a beat!!!!

Looks like they are trying everything possible to justify J-feds salary..he took over and totally exemplified what is wrong with this dept.

Everyone knows that 10% of this dept. did 90% of the real police work!

These police know who we are...we were the SAME faces every morning at 26 and Cal...The same FACES!!! EVERY morning ..WE KNOW WHO WE ARE...

These were the cops that were f#cked with for making too much overtime..dumped from units because of a select few bad cops,put on BIS cause they made the sh#thead know he would be policed aggressively..

When you go to the sgts exam how many of these faces can you name...

When you look over the meritorious list how many of these are us!!!

They have meritoriously clouted us into submission..they have proven to us that as working police we were the fools....

Jody only confirmed this!!

Can you justify the meritorious promotions!

Name one of the real police that got promoted meritiously..can anyone!!!!NAME ONE?

Not asking for much..but jeez 20% meritorious promotions and we cant name ONE!!!

Not one That was deserving of meritorious!
THIS IS THE SLAP IN OUR FACE!

Now name how many working cops got sent to callback trying to aggressively work the streets...

bet ya got names now...

Now name the lazy do nothing who is probably gonna get meritorious...

Ya should have made meritorious for merit and we would have had a real police dept.

Jody was not the beginning he is just the end!

Jody has to go ..in my opinion he has lost our trust..like a wife who cheated..we can never really trust them again..

He can try anything but its already too late...he can give me a 40% raise and I will say thanks for the money but you cant be trusted!

BUT give me a meririous promotion for a person that I really respected...YOU might get a chance to gain our respect..

NAME ONE!!!asking all you bloggers out there

Wow ... That's a mouthful ... you know you are probably one of those guys who make's all those big arrest's who I would pat on the back (but your hand would get in the way!!) It's one thing to make alot of arrests, get alot of court, and brag about how great you are, problem is no convictions ... but you are probably one of those "it's all bullshit kind of guys" who whines all the time ... you're pissed because of the meritorious selections ... look at the list dummy the last Sgt. List actually did have some longtime working police on it ... I know a lot of guy's who made it off the "list" and they are scared of their own shadow ... you are right that a lot of working cops got screwed in working units because of scandels ... But be real about it ... you cannot tell me coppers in SOS, 015, and other unit where corruption occurred did not know what was going on and buried there head in the sand... wake up ... you want to do something about it ... then make a difference .. when you see something going wrong do something about it ... you make known to the knuckleheads doing wrong that you are not going to let them bring down the unit or team. Get some balls ... and maybe someday you can be a supervisor, oh wait a minute ... it's easier to cry from the peanut gallery

Who the fuck are you to call 5:24 AM a "dummy"?

Who the fuck are you to assume that the 10% of the street cops/dicks that make 90% of the the Part I felony arrests don't have an outstanding conviction rate?

And how dare you try to justify the so-called "merit" process, you piece of shit!

That shameless asshole Weis already knows the answers to initiate reforms in promotions. Yet, Daley's puppet doesn't do shit.

(1) TRANSPARENCY IN OBJECTIVE EXAMS CONSTRUCTED AND ADMINISTERED BY OUTSIDERS WITH IMMEDIATE SCANTRON SCORES AVAILABLE.

(2) A CHALLENGE PROCESS TO VOID INVALID QUESTIONS.

(3) THE CPD GIVES A CATEGORICAL AND UNEQUIVOCAL WRITTEN DEFINTION OF THE WORD "MERIT".

(4) RESTORE CIVIL SERVICE TO ALL RANKS INCLUDING CAPTAIN AND ABOVE

(5) AN AWARD RIBBON WITH SUITABLE CREDIT FOR PROMOTIONS/ASSIGNMENTS TO THOSE COPPERS MAKING HUNDREDS OF PART I FELONY ARRESTS--THE GUYS THAT DO THE HEAVY LIFTING.

Hey, suckhole police imposter: Get some PRIDE or take the CPD bastardization of the word "merit" and ram it up your ass.

As to 5:24 AM, God bless you, office. If possible, consider other career options. This Titanic clusterfuck called the CPD now rests on the bottom of the North Atlantic--FUBAR!

Get the fuck out of town, Weis-el. You only have compounded a disaster into a mutiny. Take your phony careerist ass to D.C. and suck up with the next president and FBI Dir. Mueller.

And to those few "bosses" that anonymously say "if you don't like it, quit and flip burgers": The CPD has always been blessed with bright, talented people that could be easily earning six figure salaries in the private sector. They took the job with PASSION and PRIDE as a most honorable calling with reasonable expectations to succeed on actual merit.

Why don't they play the suckhole bullshit? PRIDE, you damn fool. And their work speaks for itself. What more can fair management ask for aside from courage, integrity and excellence?

It's only a few bad guys, clout babies and ne'er-do-wells like 8:03 PM that have betrayed the sacred honor of the once-proud CPD. If 8:03 is not a house mouse or another exempt hypocrite, his/her idea of a great tour is parkers, pissers and the brown-bagging 40's crew.

Unlike a proud 5:24 AM, you are a disgrace to our star and uniform. YOU quit! IF ever given the respect they so deserve, "Chicago's Finest" have real police work to do.

In an earlier post, a naive outsider asked what's wrong with using (CPD version of) merit. In the future when posting, would all legit officers please qualify so-called "merit" with quotation marks. In reality, it should be termed CLOUT or the euphemism "management discretion".

According to Merriam-Webster, it sure ain't MERIT.

Sgt. Beat 284 and Squadrol 274 were both for Zone 7. The other Sergeants and wagons were for Zone 5. Two radio zones, five Sergeants and five wagons for a very small district. That's how busy we were, but unlike the job today, we had more resources, and we needed them. 002 was jumping!

But you wrote the words "United Blue" and alluded to a cohesiveness in 002 during the late 60' and early 70's. You must not have been on 3rd Watch. Think back to the mood of the country back then as far as race relations. Things were tough,& you have certainly forgotten about the black 10-1's & the white 10-1's?

The majority, but not all, of the third (3rd) watch black officers in 002 identified 10-1's in this manner. They would go to the black 10-1's, but not the white 10-1's. The white guys on 3rd watch in 002 did not practice the same policy, but if not for the white brothers and the few of our black brothers, a white copper was screwed on the streets of 002 if he needed help.

Also, you have apparently forgotten the 3rd watch rolls calls in 002, blacks in the front and whites in the back, with an empty row in between that was called the DMZ. I have not forgotten. I was there. Things were not as cohesive as you remember.

Why thank you for sharing, "ANONYMOUS".

Apparently, you are unaware of the fact that I'm retired. During my entire career, I have passionately pursued reforms in the de facto personnel policies (shift rotation, EXAMSCAM, etc.) of the CPD. The fire still burns in my belly for the active guys who must deal with corruption and clout {see items (1) through (5) in my 11:52 PM post}.

I just call it the way it is. Active officers wisely refuse to identify themselves for fear of "a brick" or even separation for merely exercising their First Amendment rights to truthfully comment on matters of public concern (i.e.: Daley's CPD clout clusterfuck).

If you did your homework, you would realize why I am very proud of my service to the citizens of Chicago.

If you have the cojones to contact me DIRECTLY, try cpdfop7@yahoo.com

I won't hold my breath, clout jagoff. K-M-A!

Northside put down at least five great ideas in his comment, J-Fed.

What you going to do about it?

The wheel that squeaks gets the oil.

Love him or hate him, nobody can say anything but good things about John Northern as a cop. None better.

Looks like you struck a raw nerve with a clouted a**hole, Northside.
Could it be Mr. G-man himself?

Rock on, brother.

The big mouth at 6:44 PM must not have read the Northside post under BURGE ARRESTED IN FLORIDA 10/21 at 11:40 PM.

J-Fed is toast. Way to go, John.

the officers who work in 016 do a hell of a job policing a huge district with stretched resources...We police a 30+ square mile district filled with coppers,firemen,alderman,judges,attorneys,doctors,CEO's of large corporations etc...we deal with an entirely different element up here than in the ghetto and we do a fine job...you have no idea how far we stretch to help those people out. To the blogger who calls us stupid for stopping citizens in the alleys...you have no idea what you are talking about...we have a HUGE rash of garage burglaries and vehicle break ins. The officers are directed to patrol those alleys and stop anyone...to possibly catch or prevent burglaries. I am sure if YOUR garage was burglarized you would love to see us in YOUR alley right?? So thanks for your input superhero now go give mooky the service he deserves while we serve people who appreciate us.
