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.
