Rumor Central

From the comments:
  • from the rumor dept.: a) supposedly district bosses have to send a report to Dugan this week re: the reduction in tickets, and what they plan to do about it; b) according to sources, if the "numbers" (homicides, agg batt's) don't improve by April or May, another round of boss housecleaning will take place (all to impress the Olympic folks); c) speaking of Olympics, hearing that there will be a "de-emphasis" on the reporting of violent crime by the local media types (unless, of course, the "numbers" improve); big time pressure from the 5th floor....
Well we can see why they'd want to "de-emphasize" reporting violent crime (item c). Did anyone get a look at the past five days?
If we were on record as claiming homicides were down almost 30% in January and it had everything to do with our brilliant decision making and not the coldest January in almost a decade, we'd want the media to stop reporting violent crime, too. People might think we were a moron. We might have to have an exempt member get caught with a dead hooker in the trunk of a car they owned and absolve them of any responsibility for knowing what was in the car just to distract everyone.

As to the ticket numbers being down (item a), since we're down 1,200 or more officers and we're running from call to call all shift generating paper, we don't really seem to have time to be writing tickets. We heard from half-a-dozen people that downtown is freaking out at how bad tickets numbers are. We're talking major hair pulling. Watch for some softball to start an "unwritten" quota system in the immediate future. Someone always comes up with this bad idea and it always bites them in the ass.

We can only hope for the regular shake-ups in the exempt ranks (item b).

Captain on 3rd Watch in 001 District regularly states that he wants "2 Movers a week"! States that he will be checking our "activity" over the course of time and has no problem writing us up if we fail to meet these expectations. Says he'll ding us for "dereliction of duty", whatever the hell that means.

I look forward to being written up and then promptly grieving.

003 Commander Burger Queen mentioned during one of her brilliant, belligerent, time-wasting roll call addresses that we will be "bringing back" ???? the performance rating system which will determine if you get a raise or not. If you ask me, that is a violation of our contract.

The following appeared on Twitter --
"Chicago Police is clearing out the entire movie theater complex at this moment.. now requesting extra units to transport arrested. 7:49 PM Feb. 14th"

Could this be related to a couple of mentions on SCC of Valentine's Day violence?

"Valentines Day, what a great day...A group of unhappy V-Day customers from Old Country Buffet in 008 decide to clash with a group of people letting out at the show, BUT not as bad as the show on 87th in 006, 1/2 the 7th district was sent over there because people were shooting inside the show..."

Hmmmm...

We're now 1200 officers short?

Radios that go dead halfway through the tour?

Essentially forced to drive cars that would be cited as unsafe vehicles? (Now that's a funny, if downtown wants parkers so damn bad, everybody forced to drive a pos flaming coffin of a car could write a compliance parker. From what I can see that'll take up the slack & we pissed on peons in Patrol won't have to be fucked with).

Non functioning/outdated equipment?

No contract for nearly 20 months now?

A toothless bargaining unit? (Panty-waists!) They should be fighting as viciously for the membership as the city is fighting against. Even the smallest dog has sense enough to bite when he's kicked too often).

An unmanly & craven superintendent and an overwhelmingly wretched, corrupt & craven exmpt echelon?

Jackpot supervision & a "Hah, gotcho ass" disciplinary system for those who aren't memebers of the lucky sperm club (whether by injection, ingestion or gestation) or able to bribe/drink/fuck/bar tend their way into a political sponsorship (or two).

Very little chance for honest and open promotional opportunities in a system in which 99% study for a test, .99% study THE test and .01% study the answers and the above numbers being obscured by the clear as mud definition of merit?

Yet our fearful leaders are concerned that ticket writing is down? District commanders are "dropping paper" on why tickets are down and what they will do to "correct" the problem?

Another old, tired play out of the charlie williams (ya dried up little graham cracker) playbook titled "How To Beat The Shit Out of the Patrol Division When Everything Else Has Failed."

Quotas? You can bet your ex's ass!

Illegal? Hell yes!

Will there be a tie in with the soon coming revamped performance evaluations? Yup!

Are city hall & 35th st. pissed because they're finding out that policemen aren't as monumentally stupid as they thought? HELL YES!

Policemen are very much in self preservation mode. J-fed & the Exempts (that fucked up disco, bluegrass/mariachi band) are displeased because no copper in their right mind is willing to risk their home, job or freedom to buy tickets for the "Reasonableness/Please Be Aggressive/We Got Your Back" World Tour.

Keep the pressure on boys & girls! They're getting desperate and need to show they're doing "something."

Hopefully a few exempts will issue an/some illegal orders and get caught en flagrante... they can't cover for all of them like they're trying to cover for screamin' bee.

Some of them may find themselves quickly divorced from their clout... "we do not condone ANY supervisory member knowingly giving an order that is in violation of the rules & regulations or the law." Watch 'em fall over each other trying concoct some semblance of deniability...

Stay safe & keep up the good fight...

Apparently a shabbily-dressed Inspector was able to slip past the PPO stationed in the hallway to watch the side door to the station and sneak upstairs. Once there he went into the male and female locker rooms, sergeants office and lunch room. He then went onto the 1st floor where he actually made it to the Watch Commanders office and went through some drawers, all under the radar of the day crew. Rumor has it that Watch Commander (ED) is looking at 3 days suspension and whole district winds up with a black eye over nothing, GOD.....I hate this place.

For my part, for many years I wrote 5-10 parkers a day and 1-2 movers. Sometimes more, plus arrests and an occasional DUI.

Now, for Jody Weis and our beloved Mayor Daley, in view of their obvious hardball stance on our contract and everything else they have done to make this a miserable place to work, I now average 1-2 movers a month and 5-10 parkers a month. No DUI's under any circumstances and if someone wants to get arrested they must jump into my moving car.

What can Dugan do about that? I want a report on that sent to Dugan so he can shove it far up his ass.

I am KMA, I figure that as long as I don't beat a guy in a wheelchair on video tape I am safe from being fired. I am bid in the district and bid on the watch.

Want activity to increase to more normal levels? All you bosses toadies who read this thing have to do is to tell your clout to urge the city to give us a fair contract and soon. Then they can go forth to their exempt meetings and pretend they had something to do with the numbers increasing.

How can the truth be denied?

How can a journalist be instructed to stop reporting homicides?

How can the people remain so blind?

Everyone in the People's Republic of Chicago lives in a Utopian Society. There is NO crime, if it isn't reported it never occurred.

It's called "wilding".

Poor, oppressed, inner-city, African American males take the CTA to an affluent Caucasian area.

The poor, oppressed, inner-city, African American males then randomly select a Caucasian pedestrian(s) surround them, beat them, rob them and sometimes rape them.

While performing the above acts they proclaim their racial pride and use racial epithets in a very derogatory manner.

The reason this practice is not advertised or broadcast, by the Chicago Controlled Media, is that the Caucasians generally change their residences immediately after. For some reason they choose to relocate to the suburbs and choose to avoid Chicago at all costs.

Personally, I think the Caucasian citizens should be more sociable and introduce the poor, oppressed, inner-city African American males to their friends, Smith & Wesson.

Reality is as he runs the city into the ground, he, along with is band of ferrets, expect tickets to be written and this portion of revenue to be up, WTF, how do you expect traffic tickets to be in line with the past when you have numbers, (on the street), that are 1,200 plus of what they should be.

Incompetency abounds in the CPD and FOP! These are dark days in the history of the Chicago Police Dept due to poor command selection that starts at the top! The Cranium allowed this to happen so Daley is to blame for the chaos and confusion that will continue as long as he remains the "TOP COP!" FOP sits quietly as Rome burns telling all of us to "remain calm!" FOP realizes that we all have a very short memory so as soon as they get "some" money in our pockets we will all "quiet down!" This blog is great but as you see, we our showing our cards, weaknesses, strengths, and displaying our own silly individual needs like the 10 hour day which really eliminates midnights and will help the city explain to the public the reason they do not have to hire more police! But whats done is done so we will stick together as best we can, and "never let them see you sweat or blink!" Isn't it funny that those old "asshole" bosses don't look so bad now? The city hands these exempt stars out like bubble gum now with no regard to common sense! JW just sits and does what he's told and watches his direct deposit grow and grow!

Dugan is a tool for Weis. A little something he did that has flown under the radar and will bite every PO in the ass is requiring superviors to forward SPAR recommendations up to the Deputy Chief before electonically submitting them in CLEAR. Why you ask? Becasue it leaves no record of non-concurance in the sytem. This makes it harder for a PO to grive and will lead to increased dicipline. A sergeant can no longer recommend, "vilotion noted" or reprimand and submit it. They have to save their recommendation until the approval comes all the way back down the chain. Only then can they submit the SPAR electronically.

Fucking rediculas. Unions should be pissed about this recent development. As I said, the sole purpose from that stroke Dugan is to elimiante non-concurance and to increase disciplinary recommendations.

Remember his video, we all make mistakes and he has your back. Yeah, right.

___________________________________


my to-from would read as follows

I did in fact observe the intruder in the station. R/O had no concerns at the time, because He was immediately recognized as a Chicago police inspector. R/O had knowledge of inspector XYZ, because he had observed him on several past occasions writing up officers in the station.

furthermore R/O chose not to confront the said inspector because he was in fear of being written up or losing his job, because the inspector is a superior and any challenge would possibly be viewed as an act of insubordination.

to prove this fact, R/O upon observing inspector XYZ immediately requested a time check over the zone.


OK so maybe you should not put in the last part, but I think the men and women up there get the point.

Funny, but I enjoy writing tickets...on the same rusted-out bucket-of-shit car each and every day, knowing full well that the city will have to go through the expense of towing it and salvaging it in some way before seeing a dime from any of those tickets.

Captain on 3rd Watch in 001 District regularly states that he wants "2 Movers a week"! States that he will be checking our "activity" over the course of time and has no problem writing us up if we fail to meet these expectations. Says he'll ding us for "dereliction of duty", whatever the hell that means.

I look forward to being written up and then promptly grieving.

Captain in 001 is a decent boss to work for and the two tickets a week is what he suggests not requires. You must be one of the dogs of the watch. And in 001 there are plenty. Easiest place to work with the biggest crybabys maybe u should work in a busy district and see how it is there.

Boys and girls the majority of white shirts support everything you are doing or not doing. We are as fedup and disgusted as you are.

I agree. I get paid the same whether the officers write tickets or not. I'll watch your back, roll on hot calls and help the PO's out, but get on them about activity? The people that want to work, will work. The one's who don't want to work won't. The one thing I will do though, is call out dogs. You want to ride out the shift? Ok, but don't be sitting on some BS for an hour, so that the workers get stuck with everything. When you do that you aren't hurting Weis Daley or any other boss or politician. You are just fucking over the other people on the watch. And THAT I won't put up with.

To you lazy no good asshats who cry do nothing, I'm ashamed of you.

You act like you're entitled to something special yet you don't want to do shit. If the city fails, then we fail. If you hate this job or city so much, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. Except for those few who take the chance, we all live here. We're all in the same boat. If we don't take care of business who will?

When you lay down on the job or fail to take action against some asshat driver or other piece of shit, who suffers? We all do. The asshat driver going merrily down the road is the same one who will smash into your car or the car of someone you care for. And when that happens, who is to blame?

None of us were drafted, we all wanted this job. I know that it can suck at times, and all this time without a contract sucks too, but contracts are always settled and back pay is always paid. In the meantime, if we do shit, we get shit.

Have some kind of pride in yourselves people and take care of business. If you don't, then I hope it's your family that suffers the consequences not mine. At least I do my fucking job.

There is no parking at Traffic Court, so I am not writing shit! I am afraid because no true gun laws exists that help us, so all the homies out gun us anyway. I want to go home at the end of the day. ALL PO's are fed up so we are not as vigilant, so I may be by my fucking self. Hell, we have so many foot posts in my district, that I don't think a car would be able to get to me, why, no squad cars are available, we have the police, but no fucking cars.

Thanks Superintendent. You successfully found the money to put a GPS in the few descent cars and all the fucked up cars. How about buying some cars. I hear we are getting some new Tahoes soon. Lets see how many end up in the nicer districts first anyway though they were supposed to be deployed to high crime areas first, or go to the supervisors before we can even smell them. I bet area 2 will be the last place to actually feel the number of cars try to make it to the bare minimum of district need.

I say No Tickets, I say No Contact Cards, I say No on view shit! This all takes extra effort right. Is Jfed making any extra effort to support us? All he is doing is pulling the scary ass Bosses strings that are too afraid to say the truth.

1. We don't have enough police
2. We are down at least 10 cars per district in the faster districts
3. We are just shifting from one part of the district to the next to get to the bad guy who out guns us anyway, give us our gang teams back and the bodies from TRU and Mobile Strike Force and you will see a difference. How come the are to compliment the District's efforts but they are fully staffed with officers, Sergeants and Lieutenants.
4. Since we are so short supervisors, they can't take off to take care of their own needs, their family needs nor just get some time to clear their heads after working in such a fucked up place. At the same time their health is getting worst and worst.
5. No boost in morale because you have a federal agent, on top of that an incompetent federal agent running the department who is arrogant to no end, selects which bosses he will support and shits on the rest.
6. Keeps promoting off of some fucking bullshit. Of the last promotion at least you got 2 real police in the deal, the time before that you got 3, do the math.
7. You allow BS cover ups for shit you would like to cover and support, but the real shit that we the troops look at, you turn away!
8.We have no contract and you are putting bullshit in it to hurt us in the long run.
9. You have made us the most accountable police department in history, but we have no direct control or impact on the ME's office, the States Attorney's Office or any City Service.
10.You have no tolerance for anything police related or if we do make a mistake, but the 3rd in Commander fucked up royally and you publicly support her? What about us, the front line troops asshole, stand up for us!

Dugan is a tool for Weis. A little something he did that has flown under the radar and will bite every PO in the ass is requiring superviors to forward SPAR recommendations up to the Deputy Chief before electonically submitting them in CLEAR. Why you ask? Becasue it leaves no record of non-concurance in the sytem. This makes it harder for a PO to grive and will lead to increased dicipline. A sergeant can no longer recommend, "vilotion noted" or reprimand and submit it. They have to save their recommendation until the approval comes all the way back down the chain. Only then can they submit the SPAR electronically.

Apparently a shabbily-dressed Inspector was able to slip past the PPO stationed in the hallway to watch the side door to the station and sneak upstairs. Once there he went into the male and female locker rooms, sergeants office and lunch room. He then went onto the 1st floor where he actually made it to the Watch Commanders office and went through some drawers, all under the radar of the day crew. Rumor has it that Watch Commander (ED) is looking at 3 days suspension and whole district winds up with a black eye over nothing, GOD.....I hate this place.

___________________________________


my to-from would read as follows

I did in fact observe the intruder in the station. R/O had no concerns at the time, because He was immediately recognized as a Chicago police inspector. R/O had knowledge of inspector XYZ, because he had observed him on several past occasions writing up officers in the station.

furthermore R/O chose not to confront the said inspector because he was in fear of being written up or losing his job, because the inspector is a superior and any challenge would possibly be viewed as an act of insubordination.

to prove this fact, R/O upon observing inspector XYZ immediately requested a time check over the zone.


OK so maybe you should not put in the last part, but I think the men and women up there get the point.

Dugan is doing what he is asked to do. He knows in his heart why activity is down. He acyually worked the streets in his time on the job. The reason things are so fouled up is due to J- Fed. HIs selections( through Daley ) for his command staff were outrageoous. The old bosses he got rid of were in many way also political hacks but ould have had tyhe courage to stand up to this federal idiot that Daley brought in. J Fuck has singlehandedly , with Daleys approval) completely demoralized the Police Department. The affifmative action and meritorius promotions have finally caught up with the organization. There is too much inexperience and incompetence at the top. People like Crump, Terrance Williams ( thank God hes gone) and Lopez and other assorted jag bags have completely left the ranks with a sense of hopelessness. Dont look for improvment in morale of activity until J-Jag and his people are gone. Mayor Daley fucked up and now he knows it. He cant however fire the jag off without losing face so he is allowing Alderman Ike to dress J- Jag in the city council hearings. The MAyor will let this go on until the Council recommends replacing Weis due to his inefectiveness. This allows Daley to save face and then have another NAtionwide search to find another puppet to run the Department for him. An outsider will not make anything better only another change. It was so obvious when Weis began dumping older exampt members after being in office only two weeks that the Hall was making the call. Weis had not been in place long enough to find the mens room at 35th ST, let alone change top exempt members.

Citizens who read this blog,Iam sure you are concerned for your safety and well you should be. THe number of officers working in patrol, responding to your 911 calls shrinks each month. Your posistion is becoming more precarious each month. Be sure that as long as you call for emergency is dispatched a beat car somewhere on the Zone will respond to your all for real help in a real emergency. We all took an oath to Serve and Protect and most of us take that quite seriouosly. Although it might not seem like it on this Blog ,"we want to be on that wall, you need us on that wall " to paraphrase Jack Nicholson in a few good men. Our anger and disgust is with the MAyor, The Superintendent and some of his exempt member choices.

We will there for you as best we can in spite of the way we are treated in the Media, by the Superintendent and our Command Staff.

Saw the report about how many tickets written for 2008 vs 2007, it's pretty amazing. A lot of district were down by more than 50%, the report didn't say anything about putting together a plan to send back to Dugan, but that could of been separate.
Poster talking about Dugan demanding a paper copy for infractions, first was correct, also G. Williams passed down the word no more 2nd reprimands on ct deviations, even though the order allows it.
Traffic court writing people up for no name tags, yes I know you should have your shit together, but how about them writing the guy up for wearing his coat after he signed in and was walking to his T/Court room? NUTS!!!! These are all court deviations that count against you in handing out discipline.
How can they expect people to increase workload when they keep trying to find ways to increase disciplines? There has to be some type of directive from the mayors office demanding this, but of course daley wouldn't put it on paper, he seems to be pretty smart when it comes to not leaving behind evidence.

They're just using the "no numbers" bullshit to give them the approval to let civilians write their own tickets against whomever they think is violating the parking laws.

Much like a CTA supervisor, street cleaner, crossing guard supervisor, you know, people with real accountability for the tickets they write on their enemies and people who flip them off.

Street Cleaners/Street Sweepers cant write tickets,but the newer ones have 4 cameras on them so that a private firm can write them of course at a small fee to the great city of ours and since this was against the law until his 50 puppets passed a new law this past Dec 08 look for more cameras on sweepers and more bullet wholes in sweepers God help them boys

All that money that should be for patrol has been used to pay for all the newly created exempt positions. You often ask how is it that JFed’s salary is possible, well with the money that should be used to hire the 4000+ officers that are short on the street we haven't had 13,500 officers in years. No one wants to tell you why the watches are short so many bodies but they will tell you, you have a new boss. Do a little math, along with all those exempts that carry the titles of asst to this and that of all these bullshit bureaus that's were the money is going. This department would rather promote a kiss ass than hire new officers, keep full duty officers inside instead of sending them back out because we all know they will kiss anyone's ass just to stay inside.

I agree. I get paid the same whether the officers write tickets or not. I'll watch your back, roll on hot calls and help the PO's out, but get on them about activity? The people that want to work, will work.

And what do they get? the option to do MORE WORK?? The reality is that with cameras and gps you are fool if you are still "working".

Boss, how about the car that leads each watch in movers gets a 1/2 day the next day?! That'll motivate the SH@T out of people.

"requiring superviors to forward SPAR recommendations up to the Deputy Chief before electonically submitting them in CLEAR. Why you ask? Becasue it leaves no record of non-concurance in the sytem. This makes it harder for a PO to grive and will lead to increased dicipline. A sergeant can no longer recommend, "vilotion noted" or reprimand and submit it. They have to save their recommendation until the approval comes all the way back down the chain. Only then can they submit the SPAR electronically."

Now, this is true. I know of one district commander who is pissed about this, because the Deputy is taking away the commander's discretion regarding discipline of the people who work in "his" district.

The 001st dist. 3rd Watch WC is only asking, since pressure is being put on him. Whoever said he threatens is a liar. He is kind and gives everyone almost every single thing they ask for. He has a job to do, crap rolls downhill. 35th st. asks for tickets from him, so he asks you. I'm sure he won't be crying when you all run to mass transit, then you will be someone else's headache.

Good one 6:56:00 PM!

Love it! Write parkers & movers on the high rollers downtown, near north, lincoln pk and the west & south side revruns & wanna be vips. Be polite, be professional and explain that you are citing them not just because they committed an obvious violation but also because you're in fear of being disciplined for not writing "enough" parkers & movers. When the mover goes to court, state the same in open court under oath.

Watch the "unofficial quota" die an inglorious death when the high rollers & revruns get in their clout's ass about it, then the clout gets up in the exempts asses about it.

The bosses will talk shit, "...I want a To-From as to why you wrote Joe Blow." No problem. Take five minutes, write the silly thing and forward through the chain of command, (be careful, dirty motherfuckers WILL rifle the mail bag looking for it, speaking from experience). "...in fear of receiving discipline/losing my job/retaliation," etc. Make copies. Bring copies to court to bolster your sworn testimony...

Then sit back and laugh as the revruns, high-rollers, their clout, j-fart & the exempts cannibalize each other over a silly assed ticket quota.

To j-fart & co., you lose... again.

Stay safe everyone, they're getting desperate at Ft. Fellatio & 121... fishing around in each other's underwear for more shit to throw at the Patrol Division in vain hope something'll stick.

In regards to tickets. Pressure is being placed upon 3rd Watch 001 Dist. Officers to bring in at least 2 tickets a person per night, or else.

This is beautiful. Here is what you do. Pull over the highest rollers you can find. Tell them ordinarily you would have let them go with a warning, but you are under orders to bring in tickets. Mercedes, (sp?) Audi, BMW....you never know who those people are....then you go to court and say the same thing.....I wish I worked in 001. I'd come in with 30 movers and let the shit roll.....

I think we should do the opposite ... Write everybody ... impound as many cars as you can ... no mercy ... this week they have the Dept. of Revenue writing tickets in Mt. Greenwood and Beverly writing for any parking violation they can find ... Why, Because they know the fines will be paid ... so I think we should get on the ticket writing bandwagon and write everybody we can ... oops no cars available ... well we are just doing are job and writing tickets when we see violations commited ... oh well ... Traffic court overloaded ... States attorney's overworked ... gee too bad ... maybe they'll start approving charges for felony crimes ... Judges pissed off they have to work more than a five hour day ... such a shame ... no place to put the impounded cars my my my ... what are they gonna do ... discipline you for too much activity ... I don't think so ... Put that order in for an extra case of I-Bond books Mable, E & R are licking their chops at all the overtime for tows ...

Years ago you would go to vehicle impound and get 3 hours. I was impounded 2 or 3 cars a week. Then they took the impound hearing away so... I stopped impounding cars

They talked about relocating traffic court to 011 even bought the land. The chief judge was afraid to go to the west-side so they scrubbed to relocation. So I stopped writting movers unless they were probable cause. That way they got tossed in Br. 43.

Decentralize traffic court. Keep downtown for the ones who need a holding cell. Why cant traffic court be like Kangaroo Court I mean Administrave Hearings on Superior?

Cant be writting tickets when you chasing the radio because Daley wont hire the blue shirts.

Years ago I would ride vehicle sound tickets and go to the hearings. Was not a big regular hitter, but each time I went I saw the same crew there every time.

So I took my little OT check and went on my way.

Then the city decided it needed to reduce OT. So they cut out the pay for the PO's going to the hearings.

So the city, instead of 20 cars a day was getting maybe 2. And they thought they were smart because they looked at all the OT they "saved" not the revenue they lost.

With those geniuses running this city, it is no wonder why it is going broke.

It's so educators can speak on criminal matters. Just Father Pfleger-style touchy-feeliness; kind of like the "epidemic" of "gun violence." Now all kinds of doctors, counselors, etc. can weigh in on this new "public health" problem.

Same with "violence in the workplace." Even a home or an alley is someone's "workplace" -- but this similarly expands the scope of bureaucrats, non-governmental organizations, etc. who can get their finger in the pie, get grants to "study the problem," etc.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- The founder of an Islamic television station in upstate New York aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes has confessed to beheading his wife, authorities said.

Muzzammil Hassan was charged with second-degree murder after police found the decapitated body of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, at the Bridges TV station in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park, said Andrew Benz, Orchard Park's police chief.

Those old Muslim stereotypes die hard, don't they Muzzammil? What did she do to lose her head like that, use makeup?

You gotta love those peace loving Muslims. Well, now you can work at countering the Muslim stereotypes in prison by becoming some big buck's wife and try to behead him.

It is politically incorrect to state the truth same reason you will not usually see the racial makeup of offenders reported in the news media.

HQ has already come up with a rating system that takes into account how many movers and parkers you write!

It's a fact and supervisors are now being trained on the new rating/Quota system in I-CLEAR!

What is it you do for the checks you get on 1st and 16th (among others)? Just show up? When you took this job, you knew traffic enforcement was a big part of it. So if they ask you to do your job, whether you do it or not, QUIT WHIMPERING LIKE OVERSIZED BABIES.! Notoriously we have waited for our contracts, and I bet 90% oof you knew that when you took the job. You also knew our mayor was a screwball. You also knew what city and state you live in (I hope) and it wasn't any better 10 years ago.

Having seen the rating system it takes into account a lot of different things, but it doesn't take into account jobs assigned/handled. In a busy district you may get 10 paper jobs and not have time to write tickets, make arrests, etc...But of course they are not worried about that
Also, how are they going to rate the inside people? As usual they will be taken care of...
Also you can better believe the rating system will be based on some type of mathematical formula, so if you try to give someone a rating outside of what the computer program says it should be, SORRY DENIED, try again!!!!

Re: 10:53:00 PM

you're right, the fix is in if the new rating system doesn't take into account the number of jobs assigned/paper jobs handled... the powers that be know this but will do nothing to fix it... don't want this to be TOO fair!

sounds like it's a way to fuck over people with no clout... i can see it now, "you only wrote xyz number of movers this rating period officer." "yeah well, i clear my jobs and am ready for assignment but the captain's kiss asses on the other cars in the sector are conveniently down on station assignments/missions/bullshit when it's busy, so therefore i get a goodly portion of the jobs pending so not 'enough activity' i guess."

"no excuses! here's your counseling form/spar/fucked-up performance evaluation."

it's all smoke & mirrors from 35th st. and the copper who tries to do the right thing will get hurt by this biased bullshit... if you're gonna rate & evaluate then get it right, do it fairly.

Becasue it leaves no record of non-concurance in the sytem. This makes it harder for a PO to grive and will lead to increased dicipline. A sergeant can no longer recommend, "vilotion noted" or reprimand and submit it. They have to save their recommendation until the approval comes all the way back down the chain. Only then can they submit the SPAR electronically..
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INFO FROM...B.S., JUST DID A COURT DEV. WITH A REPRIMAND. SUBMITTED IT RIGHT AWAY TO THE W/C, WHO APPROVE IT RIGHT AWAY AND SENT IT ON.....& IT NEVER CAME BACK AND I DIDN'T HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE HIGHER UPS WANTED TO DO 1ST.. SO YOU'RE WRONG ON THAT ONE (UNLESS SOME PARTICULAR EXEMPT WANTS IT THAT WAY IN HIS HER DIST/AREA). IF SO, THEN LET US KNOW WHICH DIST OR AREA, CAUSE IT'S NOT DONE ALL OVER...BE SPECIFIC , NOT JUST SOME BS THAT YOU "HEARD"..

Could your "neighbor" be one of the two officers whining about being counseled for NO activity?

Here's a clue-the rest of the watch is probably pretty sick and tired of carrying them!

A couple of years ago, I made a trip to the EEOC and talked to them about this. I had stats going back about 30 years. They were very interested, but said they'd be more interested if I had brought a Black supervisor with me. They wanted a case where a White supervisor and a Black supervisor had both been discrimianted against on the basis of race. I don't give a f--k anymore, but maybe somebody else does!
