Tact Dumps

The rumor mill continues to churn.

Tactical Teams will be cut down to 8 per team, 3 teams total.

Gang Teams are headed out of the Districts.

And Tactical lieutenants? How much longer?

Back to the watch for now. Unless they are planning to put together yet another new team. In fact, I'd say that would be a good bet. 2 per team, 2 teams per district which gives you 4 bodies. 4 bodies from 25 districts I believe comes to about 100 extra bodies.

Just a guess.

Interesting quote "make the 019 district tact and gang teams work 8 for 8!" I hope this isn't somebody from 019 making this statement. The tact and gang teams aren't doing a whole these days but its alot more than any of the watches. I work in 019 and you can count on one hand the officers in uniform who do anything other than sleep, bitch, cry, complain, hide, and or just duck the one job they get a day. Midnites are better than days and afternoons. Still not alot of go getters there either. Don't even get me started on the lockup crying for the few prisoners they get a day.

Anyone from 019 should be counting their blessings that they don't work on the south or west side. The overwhelming majority of officers in 019 make less than 10 arrests a year. I've seen the stats and they are sad!!! Sorry very little police work is done in 019. I work their I should know.

The Phoenix Police Department has gotten some high-powered goodies courtesy of actor David Spade.

The one-time Phoenix resident donated $100,000 so that the department can buy approximately 50 AR-15 rifles, The Associated Press reports.

Spade said he wanted to make the donation after seeing a TV news report about Phoenix officers having to buy their own rifles. Spade grew up in the Phoenix area and graduated from Arizona State University.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Alan Hill says the rifles will be given to patrol officers and that the agency was grateful for the gifts.

"These guys need to be able to do their jobs and I am just happy I could help," Spade said in a statement released by his publicist.

HEY GANG INTELLIGENCE WE HEARD FROM THAT LAST POLICE SHOOTING IN TEN THAT NONE OF U GOOFS KNOW WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH GANGS IN THE AREA.

HEY PETERSON FIGURE IT OUT IF THOSE GOOFS AINT RIGHTING PAPER ON WHAT THEY DO THEN THEY JUST ARE GOING TO PRINT UP ARREST FROM THE AREA THAT STATE THE ASSHOLE IS A SELF ADMITTED GANG MEMEBER.

Some Tact Lt's back to the watch along with some of the team Officers. Others deployed where they are short Lt's. Some will not be happy! The rest of the tact teams will go to areas for roving mini rapid deployment teams to cover areas that the main rapid deployment is not at present time. This way they can't bitch you take away from one district to cover another, which they are doing now! One tact team in each district of 6 to 8 men only, At the direction of district commander and watch commanders.

===================================

First it was "bet on it" the 1st of the year, then the 1st period, now February? Does anybody really know? And as far as cutting teams from 10 to 8, my Lt has not heard one way or the other as to either of these rumors. Still don't see cutting teams down. As bullshit as alot of tact arrests are, they are still ARRESTS. Go to one of those accountability meetings, and this department could care less what the arrests are for, only that your numbers keep up with the prior years' numbers. If you make an arrest a day and a couple contacts, you're a hero. With gang teams out of the districts, then cutting tact teams, commanders are gonna have to answer to the big decline in arrests for their particular districts.

BE SAFE and a Merry Christmas to ALL!!

Tact should have 4 eight man teams. With 4 Sergeants who report to the W/C and the C/O. Two of the teams should be on permanent nights and two on days. One of the night teams and one of the days should be committed to gang crime enforcement. The other two teams should be at the Commanders discretion. This way you would get people who wanted to work and better results. This allows for the elimination of "Gang Teams" all together and puts more bodies back in beat cars where they belong!

They will be dumped because of cutbacks in the janitorial staff at city hall. Somebody has to suck the farts out of the chairs in the city council chamber. Rumor has it that three will be reassigned to the mayor's chair alone.

Why, yes, I know! It’s called the "Bend over, grab your ankles, pretended you fucking like it!" tradition which has been going around the last few years on the old CPD! Maybe you heard of it?

Face it, 2 of you are getting FUCKED! Least seniority, worst numbers, least favorite, social security ends in a 7, green eyes or whatever the boss decides as a reason to launch you.... The moral is; make sure your uniforms fit! Welcome to the watch, it aint that bad. 19P, 2 personals and a lunch.

There was a Tactical Lieutenant when the Tactical Unit only consisted of three 8 person teams. In 1993 they went to 10-man teams. There were no gang teams in the Districts until then either, when they split Gangs North/South/West and put teams in every District. They then created a second gang team for days.

Why ? are you jealous that you were never asked to be on a team ? In this time of the department, if you do ANY amount of work and can't get invited onto a tact team, you need to look in the mirror and figure out why it is that they won't put you onto a team. Maybe it's your wonderful attitude and surly demeanor thats the problem. Or........you are in a not so busy district and have 3 years on the job, and have a know-it-all attitude that no one wants to deal with. Otherwise, why wish ill will on the tact teams ?

Doesn't make too much sense but what else can you expect from this dept. I would think before cutting down tact teams, they would first get rid of all the other bullshit things. Like the Saturation teams, the gun teams and any other B.S. spot they continue to create. But like I said that would make too much sense. Oh well!

Everyone says the same thing about tact teams and or gang teams make a majority of the districts arrests. Now there will less spots with more people on the watch, who will decide not make as many arrests. You get what you want.

AND THE ONLY ASSHOLES ON THIS BLOGS BITCHIN AND MONIN ABOUT TACT, ARE THE ONES:
#1 Never Been on tact.
#2 Used to be, but got dumped for being lazy (bear in mind it's hard to get dumped).
#3 Have not worked the street's their whole career.
#4 Used to work but now are desk jockey's Talking about how they used to do it...
#5 Have no clue about Police work, period.

Bottom Line, all of you who are doing the bitching will complain about everything no matter where you are, weather you have 1, 5, 10, 15, 60 years on the Job. Patrol, Tact, Marine Unit, Gang Intel, Narcotics, ETC. ETC,
No matter where you go you will bitch and be miserable. Even if were you have the best job in the world and in this police dept. you would still find something wrong.

We know that some of the Tact and Gang teams are fucked up, trust me if anybody knows it, we do. We don’t get to pick the whole team it’s not up to us…. Now, depending on the district that you work being on the watch people do not back people up. So do I want to leave my spot so I can have a coward like you not show up when I am calling for help.

Yes I’ll keep my one bagger and my pisser once in a while I’ll come across something good. At least some of my team will be there for immediate back up.

There are still a lot of good cops out there, cops who like what they do and will continue to do so. To all those, I say good job hang in there. Because it’s bad enough that we have to worry about the criminals, on top of that what you should really fear is, this liberal government, the city of Chicago, Chicago Police Department Management, and the piece of shit Police officers who air out dirty laundry in an open public forum. There should be a blue wall of silence, not to protect Dirty Officers but instead to protect the good ones.

You think Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, minorities in general have it bad try being a working cop in the city of Chicago, even your own come after you!!!!!

Actually, those 42 are 'dillying daley'.

The other 8 have yet to pull their heads out of their asses, or certain other person's asses, and open their eyes.

An 84% to 16% ratio of intelligent to idiotic is impressive.

019 dist supervisor-- who cares how many pinches a guy has. can he box, does he dog the medical, do i have to follow him around all night because he is a fuck up. just because a guy doesn't have stellar arrest numbers doesn't mean he is a bad cop. their are many great policemen i know who don't want to arrest everyone anymore-- they pick their spots.

A lot of you keep saying Tact guys make piss poor arrest. And yes WE do. Why? I assume you don't know why due to the fact you have two years on the job or the fact you're an idiot. We are told that we need to make a certain amount of arrest per year. Here in 014 we were told we need a 3% raise in arrest from last year. As for you being angry for us not working 8 for 8. Why not also point your finger at the people on the watch who take an hour to code a job. So no one really "works" 8 for 8. You just stay for 8.

Slightly Off Topic -
While looking for an arrest made in 009 on the I Clear System, we came accross an unrelated arrest that was quite impressive. Frankly, haven't seen this type of cooperative effort put forth by two non-adjoining districts Tact teams in a long, long time.
Kudos 009 & 017 on CB# 17445565, you can look for my wanted thugs anytime!
Hope your boss wrote something up.

How sad that one of the officers involved in this arrest was would actually post this silent cry to be put in for an award. Next time just ask your boss than be a puss on this blog!

Typical 017 Tact always begging to be noticed and trying to PROVE they are the real police to the rest of the City......

If you work in whatever district you work GREAT! If you dont whatever who cares!

Get an honorable for Theft and Agg. Batt to P.O when dude was "resisting" while shoplifting at the Jewel.

9:50 a.m. ---Amen to you brother!! It still amazes me after being on the job for ten years the amount of animosity between the tact/gang and the watch! I have been fortunate enough to work on the gang team for 5 years and I would have to go kicking and screaming back to the watch. That has nothing to do with the people on the watch either, many of whom are my friends and have worked tact/gang alongside me. To all the jealous, bitter assholes that have nothing better to do than complain about the tact/gang arrests, give us a break!! I will be the first to admit that there are many among the jean wearers that shouldn't be there and make awful arrests to help keep the stats, but there are those, I feel myself included, who are out there making the good arrests and not just to help numbers!I don't do pissers and I don't do dopw! I can't drive around and be a dog ass wasting the time I am there just to make a point to the shit city and J-fed. I make the arrests for court and for the respect of the hardworking policemen that stand along me at roll call each and everyday. I am in total agreement with all who see where this once great job is heading, down the toilet! but the watch is not the answer for some of us who still like being the police and sticking it to the savages. Worry about yourselves and for once stop fucking complaining--No one cares and no one is listening!!

There are still a lot of good cops out there, cops who like what they do and will continue to do so. To all those, I say good job hang in there. Because it’s bad enough that we have to worry about the criminals, on top of that what you should really fear is, this liberal government, the city of Chicago, Chicago Police Department Management, and the piece of shit Police officers who air out dirty laundry in an open public forum. There should be a blue wall of silence, not to protect Dirty Officers but instead to protect the good ones.

You think Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, minorities in general have it bad try being a working cop in the city of Chicago, even your own come after you!!!!!

It sure is a CRYING shame that gang and tact officers are being sold out by fellow officers for ducking a little early on occassion. You have to be kidding me, you rat bastards. Just because no one will take you on a team, either for your work ethic or the fact that your a little bitch cry baby tool. You were either dumped or not good enough to play the game. Keep working your beat car and snitching on others for your short comings. Maybe you will feel better if everyone loses their perks, because your such bitch.

If you cry babies ever worked tact, which it sounds like you didn't, because you would know it's all a game. Bosses ask for quality of life arrest to keep the numbers up and missions every day. We can't do the job we used to, because if we did there would be more complaints from the liberal media and great citizens of this city. Times have changed and there is no reason to go the extra mile for a city that hates the Police. Get a clue new guy and quit your bitching. Your probably the sme guy that says "I would never work tact". Translation; "I wish people liked me or didn't think I was such a tool. Maybe then I would get on tact".

Merry Christmas to the disgruntled 19th district Supervisor. This person was dumped from being a gang Sgt and has an ax to grind with someone. Please keep your comments to yourself and take a look in the mirror next time you decide to blast working police officers.

Not animosity, just disgust!! The watch is in a R.A.P. (aka:back log, for the old timers), and you kids think you are too good or "special" to take any gang disturbance or selling narcotics calls. After all, isn't that your specialty??? gangs and drugs?

Anyone from 019 should be counting their blessings that they don't work on the south or west side. The overwhelming majority of officers in 019 make less than 10 arrests a year. I've seen the stats and they are sad!!! Sorry very little police work is done in 019. I work their I should know.

I would think before cutting down tact teams, they would first get rid of all the other bullshit things. Like the Saturation teams, the gun teams and any other B.S. spot they continue to create...

A/3 could afford to lose the sat.teams,the gun teams, the "gang intell" teams, and the tact teams.
Officers hide on these teams for years and are producing nothing.

I'm glad SOME of you Tact guys feel proud doing the job you do. But first be honest, maybe not with me but be honest with yourselves! How do you expect anyone to believe your arguement that Tact makes good arrests? MOST Tact guys are always pressured by bosses to make BS arrests for their sake! To make them look good at the "monthly". You're not fighting any real crime! You poor fools are processing one rock piss bums (or DPWs on the Northside) day in and day out. While the real crimes are happening! You guys PIMP your badges and make pathetic arrests for what? Because some fool LT tells you to get NUMBERS or else! Man, this is sad!
And Yes I've worked Tact in three different districts. Yes I have over 2 years on...16 years on.

If your such a go getter, why don't you head south and supervise the "real police" ? Bosses like you don't know the first thing about real leadership, you make me sick you fucking douche.

Whoever wrote it didn't have to sign his or her name for it to be a valid point. Not much of anything hits the lockup in the majority of the A/3 Districts, and it's certainly no secret!

who the fuck is this so called 019 District supervisor?

Hey troll er, Sgt/Lt/Cpt/Cmdr Rimfire or whatever your name is... STFU & be glad you aren't doing TRR's & monitoring chases & 10-1's all day/night if you ever pull a full eight hrs bitch! You m/f's on the northside slay me with your home made, micro-managing b.s. Too many of you were career bust-outs until you lodged yourself up your sponsor's ass now you wanna play "i'm a real police supervisor now." There were/are a lot of GOOD police officers in 019 & 023 who put in their time in shitty places so if they want to dial it back a few notches what are you bitching about? I love a p.o. who handles their calls and doesn't do dumb/illegal/unethical shit... makes my job as a supervisor that much easier. So again, be grateful you had enough clout to be a supervisor in 019... your bullshit wouldn't fly for a second in A/2 or A/4 and you know it. Probably a bully well enough versed in dept. directives to truly pose a hazard to a p.o. or other subordinate.

A Real Supervisor

" put in a TO FROM, make alot of arrests and maybe you will get on Tact"...

Your kidding right? I've seen good coppers humping every minute of their 8 hour shift on the watch. They put in TO FROMs, have the numbers and yet will never make it on Tact! Why? Because they're not friends with the divorced drunks on the team! Come on now, I'm on Tact and our team picks friends of friends that go drinking with us! Many have never been in a fast district, just lazy drunk dogs that beg the real workers to be put on the paper! Thats it no resume, no BS To From. But what do you expect from a Tact team that never comes up on the air, because their shopping more then a broad!
