Police Director Resigns

No, not Chicago. But interesting parallels:
  • Schaumburg Police Director Richard Casler has resigned his post, a village trustee said this morning.

  • Casler ran the police department as a civilian, supervising two sworn chiefs -- a chief of operations and a chief of staff. He formerly was the chief of the department and took the director role five days after retiring from the department in October 2001.
  • Ninety-six percent of union members in January 2003 voted no-confidence for Casler and "that vote speaks for itself," Atamian said.

    "That was our stand then and since then it's gone downhill," he said. "Schaumburg used to have a reputation as one of the premier police departments. ... Hopefully now we can get back to that status."

From the time of the "no-confidence vote" to the resignation - 6 years.

We guess J-Fed's three-year contract is a good thing?

SCC you gotta do a post all unto itself about this AIRA online case reporting crap. This is just unbelievable. They took a very easy case report and turned it into a huge long process. Getting it approved before being able to print it and everything. Just a nightmare system. Don't know who designed it but they couldn't have possibly made a very easy task any harder to complete.

Heard that we're never going to be deployed with them, but paper wise it shows the training and equipment is there just to get the bid. Makes sense since we go to shotgun training every year and we can't carry them.

SCC, Please put up a post for officers to voice complaints, concerns or success to the alternate work schedules. Yes we can log onto the FLOP website, but who really wants to sign in. Anonymous posts would most likely bring an accurate opinion. From friends working in the districts with 10 hour shifts, I’ve been getting mixed reviews. Mostly negative. Rumor has been going around the entire department is going to 10 hour shifts.
From what I’ve been hearing, not enough radios or cars. Some friends have said they like the 3 & 4 days off, but 10 hours in a shitty pool car makes for a long day. I’m tired of the 6th day work week, but don’t want to bid to another district doing alternate schedules until I get more feedback and the bugs have been worked out. Whets the scoop?

2/23/2009 03:22:00 AM

I think you mean "what's the scoop," (not sure how you got an 'e' in place of the 'a' but I digress)....

In A/2 and the 5th District, things are starting to get better. There were problems with the radios, cars, wrong people off/on, etc at first. In all honesty, it was to be expected. This is after all the CPD.

That stuff has worked itself out but there still are some problems, but again, it is CPD and they should know these things would pop up. You have one district and Area on 10 hour days and EVERYONE else on their own/other schedule so not everyone is the same and problems come up at different times during the day. Who can fix them??

My point, when/if the entire CPD went to 10 hour days these little things would hopefully work themselves out. The other thing, they could adjust the hours so the prime crime hours are covered as well.

The only complainers I have heard are the Dic's in A/2, and not so much from the workers. Just the dog ass Dic's, the ones who are looking at price line all day then they complain about having to sit around for another two hours before they can make OT. The working Dic's that I know, they make OT on the 10 hour days just as they did on the 8 hour days, just two hours less. They are now making that up in court time on their many RDO's. Dogs and workers alike ALL like the 4 days off, hence all the trips on price line they look at.

It is a good thing that hopefully will get better if we all went to it. You WILL like the time off, it helps a lot. Especially in a shit district like 5, just think man what four days off would be like if you worked in say 12, 13, or 19. Imagine how stress free you could be, the trips you could do, or the time with the family you can have. Then think about a busy place like 6, 8 or 10, even they can have the benefits of the time off. Yes two hours extra a day would be an adjustment but if you can not figure out how to kill an hour or two in a busy district by now, well there is no hope for you.

Bottom line, the time off makes up for ANY complaint you can have. Court whores can get more court. Dogs can stay away from work longer. It is a win-win in my book.

I agree with the poster about the AIRA online case reporting. Got trained, did one in car, told to not do it again until further notice. Being the CPD, i'm sure the system crashed, but anyway the one report we had to do was a simple domestic battery. The usual: screaming woman who had been punched 6 times, choked and kicked down a flight of stairs. Wanted to press CHAR-ges. The report which usually takes 5 minutes took 25 minutes. We are short cars, more calls for service, but our braintrust at 35th will fix these problems by making report writing a much longer process. The officer who posted is correct: easy just became a long process

If you don't prefer the online case reporting to writing it. There is something wrong with you or you are computer illiterate. Granted the process can be considered tedious. But if you make a mistake there is no whiting out or scratching out or starting the whole thing over.

The media stories downplay Casler's salary.

Casler Resigns

The Schaumburg Freedom Coalition did an investigation on Schaumburg salaries and found that Casler made $142,264.43 in 2008 as salary, and in between $75,000 and $99,999 in his pension. Which puts him at a minimum of $217,264.43 in wages last year from the taxpayers of Schaumburg. That's a lot for a Village that has three Police Chiefs.

Also to note that the number of Schaumburg Village employees making over $100K exploded from 42 in 2007 to 110 in 2008. This represents an 266% INCREASE IN EMPLOYEES MAKING OVER $100k.

I think aside from the fact that he was a civilian, he was double dipping. Not bad in itself, but it just seems wrong to "retire" from your chiefs position and then 5 days later come back in essentially the same role, probably with a salary kicker, while collecting your pension.

Read "Boyd", the bio of the legendary Air Force officer who shook up the Pentagon back in the 70s. After retirement, he was brought back as a consultant on certain issues, and he was mortified to think he would be drawing basically two salaries for doing the same thing he'd been doing for years.

Integrity like that went out the window a long time ago.

I worked in a neighboring police department and knew Casler. He reminds me of a Huberman who never really worked the street, didn't know or give a shit about the people who worked for him and just bounced up the ladder. He made Chief,waited, then retired making a big buck pension and then was hired as a "civilian" Police Director, thus being able to double dip. Hopefully SPD gets a real copper in now to bring morale up. Something CPD desperately needs.

The former director of the Schaumburg Police Department says he was fired so that the village could save on health insurance costs related to his cancer diagnosis.

Richard Casler, who became civilian head of the police force after his retirement as chief in 2001, said he was given no explanation when he was fired Friday by Village Manager Ken Fritz.

Casler said that after racking his brain, he's convinced the village learned through insurance bills of his expensive treatments for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He was diagnosed in summer 2007.

Both Fritz and Mayor Al Larson said they didn't know of Casler's medical condition until it was mentioned by Casler's attorney on Friday.

Fritz said he gave Casler reasons for his firing in what he acknowledged was a brief conversation. He refused to reveal those reasons.

According to the DH, Casler says he didn't resign, that he was forced out.

From the first paragraph:

"Former Schaumburg police director Richard Casler said Monday he was fired so the village could save on health insurance costs in the wake of his diagnosis with cancer."

I see a lawsuit in Schaumburg's future.

you have to wonder what made the city decide to let the guy retire so he can have his pension, and then hire him back so he can be paid a huge salary on top of his pension?

I am not surrpised the rank and file did not feel real good about him.

We had a guy like that here on the CPD once...his name was JOHN TOWNSEND. Didn't really go away until he died. Totally facilitated in his unquenchable thirst for power by our beloved Shortshanks. Even changed the mandatory retirement law to keep that tool around for far more years than was necessary.
