Shaved Asks a Question

And it ought to be addressed:
  • Is it true that the new citywide gang unit has the following daily operation planned?

    Pick up your squad car at the district you are assigned and then drive to Homan Square for a personal roll call with your leader Leo Schmitz?

    For district not centrally located, such as 003, 004, 005, 022, and also the far north side districts, this daily trip and whatever roll call being conducted will basically take at least ONE THIRD OF THE TOUR OF DUTY.

    The department is depleting the district of their gang teams, thus less coverage in a district and then wasting 1/3 of their shift!

    And the department has the balls to call this an improvement?
Can someone confirm or deny? We had heard that the Gang Units were moving equipment and operations to the Areas. We certainly hope they wouldn't be reporting to Homan Square for any sort of daily briefing - maybe a monthly meeting for the sergeants or a "Welcome to the Unit" address from Ric Flair. Daily? That would be insane. It would make way more sense to have the commander come out to the Areas once everything is settled in...oops, there we go using the word "sense" in anything this Department does.

All 5 gang teams will report to each area that they work in, not Homan Square. They are still trying to find out where to have roll call, where to have all the radio's, etc. They are going to take all the gang team members off the sheets for their district and have them under the dep chiefs office, so they will have to bid for furlough will all 25 districts gang team members, not in their respective districts, they want them off the district manpower sheet, assigned to the dep chiefs office.

Thank god for SCC and Shaved. You two are the voice of the rank and file. I would like to know the answer to this also. Using 1/3 of a tour of duty for just a roll call wound be insane. But as you know, something being insane would not stop this dept. from doing it.

I am on a gang team and from what we were told we will be traveling each day to Homan Square after we go to the district to pick up a car. It was told to me that this would be the standard daily practice because the new commander wanted to brief us each day and field any questions as they arise. So as of now it appears that this daily routine will stay enforced until somebody like S.C.C. advertises how stupid it is. So thank you SCC for posting this information.

sounds like CPD has a solid plan for success.

I wouldn't leave my team if I had to go to my dist every day and then Homan. The travel would kill your day right there. Lets say you work in 004,005,016, or 020. That is at least a 30 minute drive with no traffic every day. With traffic which there will be plenty of your talking an hour or more. Now you include lunch and your trip back. Thats 4 hours. I can ride that excuse out for at least 6 periods without 1 arrest. Sounds like a geat assignment. Where do I sign up???

The problem for some is this. The reason your going to Homan is half the teams won't be going to their dists. This is how the manpower will be spread out. 016 will go to 025. 017 will go to 015. 019 and 023 to 007. 020 to 008.

There is no room at Homan for any cars. Something is going to have to give.

The organizational chart is wrong, they show the gang teams in the districts. The new idea of re-assigning the teams isn't official yet, but the organizational chart should have the gang LT. under the area Deputy chief and the gang teams under the Gang LT.

Um...not true. Peterson met with some of us lastnight and stated:
1)You will report to the area for roll call and to get your cars and radios and then go back to work in your district. He doubts they will have lockers for us, so take your shit home or hopefully your old district commander will let you keep your locker.(Um yeah...right)
2)It will NOT be a unit open for bidding.
3)Sat./Sun or Sun./Mon. day off groups.
4)Bosses will not care about numbers(umm...ya right) but want "quality" gang intel and investigations.
5)We are assigned to OCD NOT detailed.
6)If you want to leave the unit you CAN go back to your unit of assignment. (again..um..ya right)

He seemed like a great guy and seemed on the up and up. However, I have never had any past dealings with him so know nothing of his "true mettle".
Thats the story...from his mouth anyway...doesnt mean I believe it...only time will tell.

For the first month or so gang teams will report to the area. They then will report to Homan Square, enough room has to be made for lockers thats not a problem. The problem will be parking. You will be assigned to OCD and give up the district where you are working. For those of you in hard to get into districts you better think about it.

SCC:

That Detective Shaved Longcock is one loose cannon. Check his blog.

He has violated the principal tenet in the sacred interests of "political correctness". He actually had the chutzpah to post the details of the arrest in the Anne PRESSLY homicide in Little Rock, AR.

Ms. PRESSLY was the beautiful blond 26 year-old KATV news anchor found raped and sadistically bludgeoned to death in her apartment in Little Rock.

As responsible mainstream media (MSM), we must suppress all details, particularly the photograph of the accused--Curtis Lavell VANCE, 28. Remember. Mr. VANCE is innocent unless proven guilty.

We had considerable success in censoring "the Wichita Massacre" and the car-jacking, robbery, rape, torture, mutilation and murders of Channon CHRISTIAN and her boyfriend in Knoxville, TN.

We must protect the general public, particularly racist Caucasians, from forming stereotypes of certain ethnic groups, regardless of the facts.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

So will 022 gang officers start at 1600 so they can make the 1800 roll call at Homan Square?

If think they are going to move you to the Area so they can just send you back to your district you're crazy! you are being moved so they can send you wherever they want. You no longer have a district, you will be used and abused for heads, don't be fooled to think otherwise. Enjoy the day off groups also....

I see a whole lot of gas being burned in the daily trek from assigned areas to Homan for face time with the Flairster! Other than a lot more wear & tear on our limited pool of squads, everything else seems to be quite up in the air.

What a fucking brainstorm. Their is absolutely NO room at the area for any more cars in the lot. Most squads are double parked already.

It takes about 3/4 of a year for a single locker to become available so the answer to the locker situation is, you're shit out of luck.

An office; aint any room at the area for say a group of 12-15 coppers, let alone 50+.

The radio room and the area is maxed out too. To room for an additional 50-100 radios or any additional pdts or shotguns. It aint happening.

If they drive to Homan square for roll call, all that down time is going to be about 1/3 of their tour. Then add lunch into the mix and more travel time and you'll leave about a good solid 2 hours for officers to do any type of policing.

Jody really had a brain fart with this one.

Maybe they want to work in the district they are asigned to and not moved out to the area with no office, lockers, parking, cars, radios etc. and then sent wherever they decide they need you, even to another area that you are not familiar with, because they will do it. Sounds like they are weighing the pros and cons and making a logical decision.

The only 013th Dist. team that did not request re-assignment back to the watch was the idiot LAPA team that nearly killed themselves and their sergeant (who never told the driver to slow down-just a little, huh? please....aaaaagggghhhh) in the pile up at Central Park and Roosevelt Rd. Not to worry, maybe in ten or twenty years they'll grow up, and maybe even wise up. Chumps.

WHY do you have to refer to the 68 team as the LAPA team. What a stroke if you got something negative to say about someone's ethnic back ground keep it to yourself you stroke. And fyi nobody form that team is a member of LAPA. Why dont you just worry about yourself. 90% of the people on this just have got into an accident on this job. You learn from your mistakes. That 68 team has done way more work that all the teams in the 13th district. and they work becasue they enjoy the job. If you dont want to work then keep that to yourself. And don't worry about what other people do you hater. Your not the 68 team so who cares what they do chump! If you dont like the job then leave the f@#king job. Im tired about how people act on this job. People are become Police Officers because they want to serve and protect and take the bad off the streets. So i'd advise you to keep any comments to youself. I think it's not healthy to not like what you do for a living. And who gives a fuck if you came from the westside i came from a fuck up district too If i have to go back I will and contiune to work!!!!

Supt.
Listen to people who know...Put your Gang Teams and Strike Force in Areas 2 and 4. Area 2 covers A/2 plus A/1 and the Ickies.
Area 4 covers A/4 plus A/5. Area 3doesn't need the coverage yet.
Putting the Strike Force at Homan Sq. will result in the same old thing. It will take P.O.s 2 hours to get to the far southside districts where they will spend two hours then leave. Your creating another TRU unit. TRU can't even get to the southside dist's before 2030 hrs. and they pull out of 39th St. Put your strike force in the areas also.
These new ideas are about 30 years old. The key is Veh. stops/searchs and Street stops/searchs will poduce results.
Stop listening to lawyers and think like a street cop.
