Taxpayers Ought to Know

Is this coming out of the Obama "transition" budget or out of taxpayer's wallets?
  • The effort to secure President-elect Barack Obama's transition office in Chicago could cost the city close to $1 million, according to a Tribune analysis.

    The Chicago Police Department is staffing the area around the Kluczynski Federal Building this week with officers from police headquarters and the training division. But beginning next week, the department plans to assign newly hired officers to work the details as "special employment" on their days off, said Monique Bond, spokeswoman for the department. The officers will receive time-and-a-half pay, she said.

    That overtime tab would run upward of $890,000, with 60 officers covering three shifts and a sergeant for one shift, if all of the officers and the sergeant were at the city's lowest pay grades, according to a Tribune analysis.
Especially in these trying economic times. A campaign that raised as much as they did, much from questionable sources, ought to be paying it's own way at this point.

Why in the hell is this program being offered to probationary officers????? I recall having to wait till I was off my probation to work ANY city sponsered overtime. I think a grievance is in order. Needs to be opened up department wide on RDO's. Sorry PPO's.........wait till you get time on the job, not knocking you guys/gals but what is right is right and wrong is wrong...and this is wrong to only offer to PPO's.
10yrs and fifteen to go.

If it is indeed true that taxpayers are footing the bill for additional Obama security then I'd like to say that, as a taxpayer who did not vote for him, I respectfully request I not have to contribute to his enhanced security. Please ask a liberal who believes in all that "change" crap to cover my portion of the tab.

Ok so now all of these people newly hired that want to be the police are going to sit and do nothing. Very good way to kill morale before they even start. But the city has been doing it for years. We need some coppers for this shit detial, we will pay them. ok we can't get the old-timers they don't want it. Well we can't get the mid-timers they don't want it. I know just off your ppo status. Here ya go walk up and down the the mag mile... i know i know you want to search cars and lock people up. This is better! Hire more people we don't need it look the district is fully staffed, the mag mile is covered, hq is covered, area sat team covered, strike team covered, vice covered, caps office fully staffed, summer bike detail covered, So why are your numbers down.... um i will have to get back to you on that one. The names change but the game stays the same.

Contact your labor reps. Overtime opportunities are to be filled by seniority.
As such, alot of us are being discriminated against by title code due to the city only allowing
9161s to apply. And what about the supervisors?

FOP/PBPA, get your heads out of your ass and rectify this injustice.
If you don't, then you should expect litigation.

you can't give newly hired officers overtime till they are off probation. they only can receive time thats how they will screw p.o.'s out of paying o.t.

A long time ago during the reconstuction on the expressways, they used the recruits. These impressionable, young 'go-getters' full of piss and vinegar should have used this youthful enthusiam to learn their craft. Sadly, they were sent to the expressways where they learned to stand around for two hours, hide for four, and stand around another for another two.

So instead of learning the job from another old timer, they learned to do nothing and duck ealrly. We are poised to ruin another generation of P.O.s.. Why don't the people making decisions see this?

The city is running a "SHELL GAME" with the police.WE DO NOT PHYSICALLY HAVE ENOUGH POLICE.So if you live in a decent place guess what,your police are sent to other parts of the city and your neighborhood is UNPROTECTED.Meanwhile the BILLLIONS from the privatiztion of city properties is just sitting and accumulating interest for the eventual Olympic graft payouts.

From the fax it is for ALL 9161 coppers no matter how much time on the job! Now if the supt would finally be a man and stand up and make all special 9161 including airports,cha, etc that would be big balls! Why do we needs detectives and d-2 plus all the d-3 bodyguards their expertise here is not needed. The higher pay rates dics are making tons of money but want to take from the hard working street coppers, and the d-3 "valets" WTF! If the city is so broke why pay out the higher pay rates flop will not do anything as marky mark has no clue!

Taxpaers ought to know! Why is there a d-2 officer assigned to a southside airport? Why has she been there for 10 years? Why was she told "if a d-2 spot opens up you will fill it?"! Guess the new boss is the same as the old boss, can move someone but not her! I know she has more clout than the lt can dream of! Same job more pay must be nice! The d-2 girl could better be utilized somewhere else correct?

It's kind of funny if you think about it. We have the soon to be President headquarters in the city and the mayor offers inexperienced PPO's who will have no idea what to do if something were to happen. All so the mayor can save on overtime.

I like getting paid for not working - Go ahead ass face, don't allow me the over time opportunity.
You will pay me the 19 hours from last time and I'll get every fucking dime from this one.
I like it when the city and department bosses are dumb and arrogant - I get paid for being at home and filing smart paper.
You guys never learn - I sued your ass to get on the job in Federal court [thanks again Judge Williams] and I'll come after you every time you mess with me!

And why are only supervisors outside of patrol being used for this detail. Have already contacted PBPA and they are looking for the next teletype to clarify the 1st two. Go figure.

Hey cry baby it's obvious you went to college because you never learned any street smarts. The D-2's and D-2a's are covered by the same contract you are. They should get the work details for the same reason you should, it's called SENIORITY. So in about 3 years when you have 5 years on the job you still won't get the airport. hahahahahaha
