Suburban Paper Scoops Locals

The Daily Herald evidently has someone who owns a calendar on staff. They're the only ones who covered this until late yesterday afternoon when Channel 7 picked it up:
  • Police say an internal department investigation on how a 14-year-old boy allegedly was able to impersonate a Chicago officer is complete.

    But police spokeswoman Antoinette Ursitti said Monday the findings won't be made public until Supt. Jody Weis (WEES) can address them.

    Ursitti says an investigation into the Jan. 24 security breach includes surveillance video and witness interviews.

    The incident was embarrassing for Weis and the department
Which is probably why the Department would be happy if this all went away and no reporter anywhere ever asked about it again. Rumor has it some persons involved underwent retraining yesterday at the Academy.

Meanwhile, Department facilities across the city are pulling officers off the already manpower short streets to sit in front of doors that don't lock properly for the low low price of $60,000 per year. Instead of this ($1,000). Or this ($300 and up).

Try again SCC, last time I check we have three watches, each of which has to man the door, for a bare minimum of $180K per year per district involved. Not to mention some stations like area 2 have two different doors being manned, whats $180K X 2, any reporters smart enough to add that up. Come on Olympics, this city sure knows how to spend some cash.

$60,000 a year to sit at a door? Try a lot more then that. 60,000/52 weeks= 1,153 dollars/40hrs a week= 28.82x24hrs=691.68 per day x 365 days= 252,463 dollars a year. Thats a fairly low figure too considering the average salary is higher then 60,000 per year.

There was someone out from downtown looking into our station. He said that the City building head stated that it would cost over a million dollars to put lock/key pads at all the(rear) doors of every police station…Where can I put in my bid for this contract?

Maybe if the stations weren't built by political hacks the locks would work on the 10 foot tall doors.

You try and tell me this media is not kissing ass, 20 years ago there would be … "Exclusive Investigative Report" at 10...
These idiots in the media need a map to get out of a phone booth, selective reporting, then it becomes sensationalism not journalism.
Here a clue, there is a major shortage of personnel available on the street, there is one person to go to first and interview, JFED, now you get BS, then go to his boss, Shortshanks, but heres a clue, you will get BS’d, so bring your boots cause it’s going to get deep, then tell the people what you surmised between the two and what you see on the street… now go do your job kid.

The back doors of A2 can't be opened from the outside, from the inside, you push the bar to release the lock. The doors also to function as Fire-Escape routes, so what's the point of having guards on the back doors? Perhaps the desk dollies don't want anyone walking down THEIR hallways past THEIR Offices?

head of iad has recommended 5 officers be disciplined for the incident with the 14 year old kid. and jagoff pleaded not guilty in court. at the end of the day, the officers will all take a big hit and nothing will happen to jagoff. the judge will tell him "don't do that again" and he will magically be rehabilitated and sent home to momma.

I really liked being a hall monitor, er...I mean "Station Security Facilitator" for my district!

It was a great job plus I was able to catch up on my book & broke out my DVD player.

I checked off at the end of the day with a big fat ZERO!

just what do you think they are going to do to a juvenile for such a minor crime? they barely lock them up for premeditated murder.

think of it as a good object lesson. next time someone tries this, they may have far more sinister motives.

In 003 the burger queen has the back door locked, so the hall monitor has to get up and open it every time some one needs to come in. She had a sign in sheet for the officers to sign cause they were hanging in the station too much. Made the Sgts sign in also. What a waste of paper.

You can put your bid right up your a** !!!

That contract and every other contract is already spoken for by the outfit or a "friend" of the outfit. Count on it.

Easy soldier... Don't think for one second that 35th Street/IAD won't be testing Station Security all over the City and jamming the desk crews for failing to challenge people entering the facilities after "the impostor".

This result was inevitable. Just keep the Star/ID handy & flash the desk upon entering... Trust me! The desk crews want this extra burden a lot less than you do ! ! !

Supposedly, they're auditing how man people are really needed inside. They're going to be auditing a lot of units to determine necessary personnel.
