More Paperwork

Something about this strikes us as slightly off. We just aren't sure what:
  • Chicago cops for the first time will have to photograph homes they search, in an effort to protect officers from false complaints, police said Friday.

    The new order will require officers to make a log of what they find during a search and give a copy of the log to the person living there.

    The order also will change how searches are supervised.

    Last year, after officers in the Special Operations Section were arrested for allegedly stealing from citizens during searches, lieutenants were required to be present.

    But that requirement is being scrapped to free up lieutenants for other duties. The department executes about 2,400 search warrants a year.

Are these going to be "before and after" pictures? We assume the pictures are to be taken as soon as the premises are secured, but now we're going to have an affiant, entry team, security team, search officer, inventory officer, and a paparazzi officer? Who's supplying these cameras? Film and film processing costs? Digital? Storage and software for chain of evidence issues? And what's to stop Joe Public from taking his own shots after CPD leaves and passing them off as the aftermath of a particularly "vigorous" search? These are questions it'd be nice to have answers to from someone in authority rather than the sketchy details provided by the Sun Times (and thanks again for keeping us informed via Department channels rather than through the media J-Fed)

And are they going to get D-2 for doing an Evidence Tech's job?

UPDATE: Post corrected for pay scale

You will buy a disposable camera and use it to record the damage you do on all search warrants. Then you will hire a illegal alien to rebuild the front door you busted down. If you refuse to comply with my directive you will be sent to STALAG 017.

I hope you guys have been paying attention to tony peraica's actions this past week. Here's a few examples. During the week he referred to convicted murders as victims in regards to Jon Burges' arrest. Today he was a guest at operation push with the communist G. Flint Taylor, who wants detectives arrested with Burge.

Hey boss 35th street stated there was an order on all the bullshit special, if you want to work you get paid the fair d-1 rate and not the d-2a pay and d-3 rate!

Haven't been in a position to do a search warrant in a while.

What will the taking of photos accomplish?

Most of the places I have been involved in doing search warrants looked pretty well trashed WHEN WE GOT THERE. Afterwards didn't look much worse and in a few cases to make a more orderly and productive search, actually looked better.

A few teams citywide have had the training already. It basically goes like this, once the residence is secure you take photos of all the rooms (basically a walkthrough of the house), then you must photograph any contraband found in the original spot it was found. Then you take pictures of the aftermath, another walkthrough of the residence. Finally you take a picture of the point of entry to show that you "made an attempt" to secure the door.

The cameras are digital and are already in the units/districts. You upload the pictures straight onto e-track and inventory a photocopy of the search warrant. You cannot delete any pictures, once they are taken they are assigned a number and they must go in sequence for court. There will no longer be a need for the LT to go on the warrant and that should help a lot of teams.

It may be a pain, it may be used against us, but it may also help prosecution. Who knows...

Yep, another unit/detail/covert team/etc,etc, - that is what we need.

Heard from a friend that this team has two guys with less than 2 years on!! What the fuck do they KNOW about doing a search warrant?? hell, what do they know about being the police!??

In true city fashion also heard that these two had a phone call, one of them is Hibbiddy Dibbiddy Dana Starks nephew. Nice. Team them up with the two broads who do nothing and could not spell search warrant on the team and you wonder why this department is going down.

A search warrant team where nobody knows how to do them or does them, great move.

No need for a camera when you do not do shit!

There is a whole online course to take and pass. And yes before and after pics to take. My question is always going to be, will there be a Before the search, after the search and then the real search begins, because no matter what you know dude is going to say you fucked his shit up no matter what.

O.T. Doesn’t Dick Durbin, the Turban, have any shame? He spent the majority of this election season slagging the troops and advocating for the Muslim terrorist scum, and now he is doing commercials giving the impression that he is the GI’s best friend. What a fuckin’ hypocrite! This little twerp is a lying little fuck, just like the rest of the DemocRATS who are backing the donkey- eared lawn jockey. What a wretched group of politicians the DemocRATS have running for office this year. Are the American people nuts to even consider voting for these American haters? The only people who will make out if the Messiah wins are the Afro-nooners. They can throw away their alarm clocks and sleep even more than they do now. McCain and the Republicans…Before it’s too late.
The Turbin is against free speech: In 2007, speaking as Senate Majority Whip, Durbin went on record as stating that "It’s time to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine," coercively regulating talk radio by reviving rules requiring privately-owned commercial stations to balance conservative hosts such as Rush Limbaugh with liberals pigs such as Al Franken.

It just goes to show that the leaders of this department either never did a search warrant, or have forgotten what is involved in a search warrant. As anyone who has done a search warrant knows, you document what you recovered from the scene of the search, along with a diagram of where each recovered item was discovered, on the seach warrant data sheet.

I wish one of those over paid idiots, that are our so called leaders, would read the department orders first,before they put these bone headed ideas in the news, they just might learn something.

It just re-enforces the notion that civilians have no business running a police department

Hi people, Missy here again.
Why-Why-Why people. Complain-complain... is all I hear about new changes people.

Our beloved Mayor is not a dumbo people. He hired Mr. Weis to make things rights for all of the people who live here. In my 20 1/2 months as a P.O. I never heard so many P.O.' crying about CHANGE.

My uncle, Tom Byrne (rtd) is also tired of all the complainer on this police dept.

You better watch out people, you can be replaced if you do not follow the rules. When I grew up in Glenco, I knew the rules at the play ground.

When my husband lawyer, Ira moved us to Chicago he told me to work for the mayor. I did what he told me and I bring in much needed revenue for our dear Mayor.

CAN YOU PEOPLE DO THIS ???

Shame on all of you that think this job is about "cops & robbers". I work very hard writing parkers for 8 straight hours. Some times I never go to the bathroom because of my work.

I guess my husband Ira is right, you people are all over-paid. You bring nothing to the supper table.

Cameras are being supplied to each district. They are digital cameras and the pictures are downloaded into the I-Clear system and attached to the search warrant on line.

With that said....

I would take a lot of the pictures with my thumb accidentally in front of the lens, some with the focus super blurry and some with my hand over the flash.

The order said you had to take picture but they didn't say you have to be an Ansel Adams of photography.

Stop looking at everything so negative. It's going to cover your ass some day. That's how the Feds do it and other departments across the nation and it works just fine. They should also take pictures of the offender once he or she is arrested and put into evidence to prevent false allegations of excessive force or what type of clothing the offender was wearing at the time of arrest. Officers would have to take a days course on photography and then sign out a camera along with your radio after roll-call. The only problem is that it has to be well planned and organized for it to work. And we all know the CPD....

Not even forty officers initially applied for the Strike Force, so the 35th street brain trust lowered the years of service requirement from five to three years.
We also heard that the requirement for supervisors applying was dropped from three years in grade to one year.

So is this a case of unseasoned officers being led by untested supervisors? Or more sour grapes from someone with an axe to grind?

Did j-pud say evidence reporting took too much time?

What about the logging of property during a search?

Large dope house, many rooms, attic, basement, guns dope, false ID's everywhere, ammo in drawers, gang photos and misc paraphanalia, etc.

There will be a line at the logger and add much more time on target for the warrant team.

This was tried in the past but took too much time and caused too much confusion for the logger.

These are search warrants for drugs and guns usually, not CSI (TV style) solvings of multiple murders. They are bullshit cases usually tossed by the courts or disgarded by volume.

There already is one sgt per team ,

Had a guy come in and explain this to us last week. Every tact team and gun team will be supplied with a Cannon digital camera. They come with standard batteries and a set of rechargeable ones. If the cameras break you may borrow from another team or call an ET who will be under your direction to photo what you tell them to. You must take 4 sets of pictures. As soon as the location is secure you photo everything. If you find anything of evidentiary value you photo it BEFORE recovering it. You photo everything after the search. If there is nobody at the location you secure the location and photo it. I guess people were complaining that their homes were being burglarized after CPD was leaving.

Once these pictures are taken you will load them into E-track. They will be “attached” to the inventoried of the copy of the search warrant.

Who gives enough of a fuck to do ghetto search warrants anymore? When Phat Phil chastised narcotics for doing a warrant on a dope house in 016 was enough for me. He bitched that it didn't impact his homicide numbers, therefore its OK to have dope houses in 016.
They'll be getting guys to do this shit by reverse seniority soon.

It is time for the U.S. Attorney to step in and take control of this ut of control place. Not the F.B.I. ; the U.S. Attorneys Office. There's too much death in the streets, and all previous bright ideas have been abysmal failures, so someone has to step up and take control, knock of the Shitcago Politics, and get this back to a law enforcement organization-Police Department, instead of the politically correct corupt Democrat whore house it has become.

What's the problem with doing search warrants, jody says he is in back of us 100% if we are 100% right.

I wil never get jammed on a search warrant for the simple fact that I will never do another one or ride on one. Problem solved. Let the Feds do search warrants.

Better yet, bring Flint Taylor along on search warrants with his crew from the People's Law Office. They can be the video crew. Or really better yet, they can go in first.

Here's the problem of photographing evidence prior to actually recovering it. There is a thing called "chain of custody", and it is always brought up in trial by the Defense Atty. A half sharp Defense Atty. has enough to put doubt in the Judges mind or a Jury's mind. All this will do is decrease SW's by at least 50 %.

Search Warrants will be handled much different in the future.

Officers will execute the warrant securing the scene/premise. A few ET's will then enter with new BETA HD Brodcast quality cameras following- documenting-memorializing officers actions and findings.

This serves 3 purposes #1) Video in a court proceeding is hard to beat. #2) OT savings- Officers will NOT be needed in court as the video and reports will be stipulated as the Officers Testimony. #3) Will further assist the CPD and City to reduce Labor(OT) costs.

OT - I guess the 48 hours wasn't enough... Bond said Balfour, who had been in police custody since Friday, was transferred Sunday to the Illinois Department of Corrections "based on his active parole violation unrelated to this investigation."

Records from the corrections department show Balfour, 27, is on parole and spent nearly seven years in prison for attempted murder, vehicular hijacking and possessing a stolen vehicle.

Corrections spokeswoman Januari Smith said Balfour would likely remain in state custody until the Illinois Prisoner Review Board looked at his case. She would not say exactly where Balfour was being held.

It was unclear if Balfour had an attorney to speak for him Sunday, but his mother, Michele Balfour, has denied that he was involved the killings or in Julian's disappearance.

Its not a big deal, was trained on it last week. Majority of houses we do warrants on are total shit holes to begin with, so....let the rest of the world see how common criminals live. Paints a nice picture when you find dope or a gun in the babys room, or, dude says he dont stay there and you have photos of his personal property in the bedroom where you recovered contraband. Im sure it will have its glitches, but in the long run its for our own good, makes the warrant seem more professional for the jury and judge. Also, some of the furniture and decorations in these shit holes are hilarious, photos will capture the black panther glass table or lion area rug hanging on the wall!

This is nothing new. Narcotics has been doing this for awhile now. It doesnt change how we do search warrants. They are used to photgraph where you found the evidence. They are not looking for how you trahed the place thats going to happen anyway. You find evidence, you dont touch it. You photograph the place where it is at and then you photo graph the evidence in its place. You then recover it, record where you found it and keep going. It is a ery simple process. Those of you that are bitching about it are probably ones that either dont do search warrants or you fuck them up when you do them. Quit your whining already.

SCC,
Please help me figure out what to do at work all day.

OFF TOPIC..Caution to all those having to deal with the 1st Watch lockup in 011. PO Birl Madden obtained 2 CR#s on Police Officers for brutality after their prisoners got out of hand in the lockup waiting area. These Officers did nothin but use emergency takedown techniques after their prisoners chose to fight once un-handcuffed. This man is a danger to all working police

10/26/2008 07:49:00 PM
Actuallty, all 011 1st watch lockup are asswipes. From the PO's to the Civilians!!. Damn right watch you back from them. How dare you bring prisoners and make the do their job. Fire the Civilians (who think they are cops) and put the asshole coppers back on the street. They work lockup cause they are scared to hit the streets. Specially the 3 year wonder who has been in the lockup since he got off his cycles.

10/26/2008 11:21:00 PM

I've have nothing but bad experiences in every single lock up i've been in. what is it with lock up people? one watch is great and doesn't mind doing their job, the next watch is awful bitch assholes. do your job, sit back there, watch, and take naps

If its that big of a deal come on back to the watch like the rest of us jag bags!

Take the fucking pictures or shut the fuck up!

Keep doing the warrants so when dude beefs and he allegates that his kids baptism monies were taken... YOU the fine officer are showing the very room or area via pictures that dude is saying you committed the act!

Just do what you are supposed to do and DUDE will look stupid I guess. Unless you are helping to build his case because you know dudes camera ain't been working!

Enjoy!!

See ya on the watch ...

This is exactly WHY it is time to realize 011 and everywhere else that it is time to realize "Is it really worth it anymore"?

When the next beef comes in and YOU are on it whether it be by shithead or fellow officer, the common denominator is proactive work!

Do what you want and when you realize the ghetto isn't fun anymore and its for REAL, you only got yourself to blame for your problems!

Woof Woof

Since DETECTIVES GET D2A pay, why not make them take the pictures? They sure as shit are not solving crime, whats the clearance rate for murder? 28%? Burglary 10%? Agg batt to PO (patrolman) 3%?


Try clearing up crimes when you have PO's that pick up the weapons without gloves, move evidence before it gets processed and change their stories ten times before the D2A guys get there!

The Academy isn't what it used to be and common sense isn't so common anymore!!

Stop looking at everything so negative. It's going to cover your ass some day. That's how the Feds do it and other departments across the nation and it works just fine. They should also take pictures of the offender once he or she is arrested and put into evidence to prevent false allegations of excessive force or what type of clothing the offender was wearing at the time of arrest. Officers would have to take a days course on photography and then sign out a camera along with your radio after roll-call. The only problem is that it has to be well planned and organized for it to work.

10/26/2008 07:45:00 AM

-------------

This mindset is the problem.

This is why J-Fed cannot run the police department for a large city.

#1- The city has way too much crime and way too few officers to spend so many resources gathering evidence in one search warrant.

#2- Although the city proclaims there are 10,000 officers, the majority are administrators whose job has nothing to do with putting criminals in jail. I challenge you to find any other police department in the country with a higher percentage of "officers" whose job has nothing to do arresting criminals. The city actually has less than 5000 working officers.

#3-The city leads the nation in homicides. Where does it stand with reguards to robberies, sex assaults, shootings...etc.? I would bet that all catagories are much, much higher than NY or LA.

#4-How do pictures "cover your ass?" The citizen complaintant will just say you planted dope and then took a picture of it. And what if the SW is negative? You will have to supply a bunch of photos of damage inside the apartment. How does that cover you?

#5-The city of Chicago is not like any other big city in the US. It is really a giant Philly or Detroit. You could walk from Area 2 to Area 5 and you would be in danger the entire trip. Chicago is 70-80% hard core ghetto.

Places like Philly, Detroit, and Chicago don't solve crime. They shovel it. There is no time and there are no resources to prevent or solve a large percentage of the crime here. Also realize that almost 60% of the citizens in this city will actively obstruct any police investigation into crimes that occur on their own block. Add to that another 20% of the citizens who will simply not cooperate.

The more this department tries to turn simple arrests into major investigations, the less resources there are to stop or solve more serious crimes.

That is a real ignorant comment to make. While SOS was up and running, I worked my ass off on a beat car on the east end of 8 getting (no lie) at least 7 or 8 jobs the second that I logged on and would continue to get stacked with more jobs the second I would clear. Most of us did our job to the best of our ability and made arrests daily. Just because you may have made more felony arrests on a monthly basis doesn't mean that you kept the crime down in Chicago. That was a group effort of all of the working police in Chicago who did their job just like you everyday.

Maybe not that big of a deal in suburbs who have all the time in the world. Most suburban department drive around all shift WAITING for calls. Chicago does not have the luxury of keeping officers down that long. In any event it is a good idea so people can see how the savages really live before they were JUST ABOUT TO turn their life around.

10/27/2008 06:39:00 PM


What type of retard would post this?!
I've worked TACT and GANGS just like probably every other member of the SWAT team and the differences are night and day. The slight similiarity is only that niether chases the radio and its a team concept. ANY similiarity ends there.

SWAT: 1)in uniform, not plainclothes, 2)pistol qualifications 4x per year (at 90% on the SWAT course of fire), 3)Fit test 4x per year (not age or sex normed either), 4)rifle qualified 4x per year, 5)spends his own money for outside training and specialized gear, 6)is on call for jobs and high risk warrants, 7) and probably biggest difference: They gave a citywide test and invited the entire department with more than 3 years on the job to try out. After those that passed the pistol qual (%25 or so) passed, they had to pass the PT, then an oral interview, then pass rifle school, then SWAT school. Now how do you compare being on a TACT team with being on the SWAT team?
I have nothing against TACT or GANGS, or even the beat cop. Without you guys in blue, us guys in green wouldnt have a job really, since our job is your safety. We get called out when patrol is out-gunned or not trained for the specific task at hand. Simple as that.
To compare the two is comparing apples and oranges.

This is not a slam or disrespect at all to any CPD workers out there. The comment was left to whomever slammed the work SOS did.While we were in the district, we rode on almost all the in-progress calls that came out.And yes there were cars in SOS that did nothing except jump on someone elses arrest just to checkoff with a head.And being given the freedom to not being tied down to the radio assignments gave us the opportunities to work info to get the guns and shitbirds that own them off the street-which we did.Thats the stats I am talking about.
