Things That Make You Go "Hmmm"

Interesting:
  • Let the privatization of the CPD begin:

    Commander Ball 005 addressed roll calls yesterday about a handful of P.O.'s who haven't been cooperating with the new private security company patrolling Michigan Ave from 103rd -115th. Commander wanted us all to know how politically connected this security firm is, how right now as we speak they are in the process of getting city council permission to issue parkers and movers. That's right, per a commander of police a security outfit may be conducting traffic stops and writing movers.

    Commander made a big deal about how successful a Canadian security program like this was effective. I'm not sure if Canada has the same problems as Roseland but I do know that one of these elite new security guards locked a trespasser on the sidewalk! Also found two rocks on the guy. Great work except for the obvious civil rights violations. Since they don't have the power to arrest (yet), CPD has to lock them up. Any wonder why some officers aren't cooperating?

    My questions: what training do these morons get? Who is bankrolling them? Who is liable when the lawsuits come?

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, theyre not here to take jobs from the police. Thats what the commander said. But what are they doing? Riding on domestics and other jobs they have no business riding on. Who indemnifies them? Seems to me like Mayor Midget and his crooked alderthief Beals found out a way to save the taxpayers some money. And yes, it is apparently Beals who has been complaining that the police won't cooperate with "his" security force.
We know there's that other private firm that patrols on the south side that's bankrolled by the neighborhood and businesses. We can't remember where exactly, but quasi-police forces being given police powers to patrol city streets and neighborhoods? Sounds like a large number of laws, ordinances and contracts being violated. Readers?

San Fran's "Patrol Special Police" have been an unpopular idea with the SFPD since the 1800's... Except in the Chicago version there has to be some manner for the well connected to make some serious profit from the endeavor, thus the "security company" fulfilling the same role... Nice (eye roll)

WOW! I don't know where to start with this one.
2 main points though

(1) Anyone taking an arrest from these fuck nuts better be getting a direct order from there immediate supervisors and ask him/her his court key because he will be making the appearance for court.

(2) If they ride on domestics, or any call for that matter, they need to be ordered to leave IMMEDIATELY or they will be subject to arrest.

Nobody cares, or should care, how much juice they have or who they are connected to. You have to protect your ass and do your job properly especially in today's climate. They don't need to be finding work for us (we have plenty of supervisors that do that for us already)and they shouldn't be given the chance to impede or interfere with an investigation of any kind.

There are private security patrols around 67th and Cregier,In marquette park,several CHA 'hi risk' areas.(arent they ALL high risk)In 024 around Howard and Marshfield,and other areas that are either gated or contracted via assessment by the community they "patrol". Security Agencies are governed by the Illinois Department of Professional and Financial Regulation.(Room 9-300 State of Illinois building Chicago)Training at the MINIMUM is 40 hours so as to be permitted to work Armed and only 20 hours for unarmed positions. Liability(a million dollar policy) is required prior to awarding of any contract in Chicago or immediate collar areas(cook county only)None of these guards have "arrest powers" they are supposed to only detain for the police. The requirements go on and on and I dont think SCC will allow such long a post. If however the private security agency,guard or contractor is deemed a Public Safety Department(Like Lathrop homes was in 2004-2007) there are certain powers that the officer does have inclusive of arrest(citizen arrest)If they are deemed Special Police then they have Police power of arrest. Insofar as running on jobs outside the contracted area...they are on their own not covered under company insurances or even by State law. For further info see the Illinois Privatge Detective act Chapter 134 for more detailed information.

More info if you would like, get back to me Lathrop One.

Parkers and movers ? Traffic stops ? You have to be kidding me. Are these people armed ? What a brilliant idea...When private citizens realize that someone not the police is trying to stop them, its gonna get ugly...real ugly...i wouldnt stop for them, I would assume some sort of impersonation is going on. Bad Idea !

I will tell them to leave my domestic, and arrest them for obstruction if they don't, they are not the police and have no power to arrest and not be present on calls which is a violation of privacy to the parties of the call. The public should sue these guys if they are talked to by security guards and arrest them for impersenation, they are not the police and have no right stopping citizens. No academy training and no star, everything issued by them should be thrown out of court, and then sued for millions because they are not the police, and by state law only police can arrest for MCC ordinaces and past crimes.

SCC, You are thinking of "Special Service Area #14" Servicing 69th to the south to the tracks to the north, kedzie to the tracks at the 8/7 border. This was paid for by tax levies imposed on the properties within that area. Not really a city deal but a community deal. It is probably the same thing that is going on in that new area. As far as the citations go, i don't think it's going to fly. The security firm would probably want a cut from the citations and I don't think the district courts are going to allow non certified officers to legally write movers.

I used to work for SSA 14 back when it was not really a joke. The security firm running it was not connected and won the bid to get the contract. Back then (2001) it was a great program, the firm actually hired certified PO's mostly off duty CPD or Cook County. At that time they had respect since the Officers in 008 knew that some of us were actually CPD. I do remember there was one kid who was on as an armed security officer. He was small and had a big gun and a great help when we needed someone with habla skills. He was always paired up with a CPD officer while on duty and I don't remember him ever working alone. Never got to work with him since I was working nights for the firm and he was on days. I do recall him brining in an armed robbery offender that he caught himself according to the P.O he was working with.

I also remember there being some neighborhood critic named Joe Clueless Kulus or something to that effect. He would always complain that the company was not out there patrolling. This was because he wanted a patrol car to pass in front of his house every hour on the hour. He would write shit in the southwest news herald that made it look like the program was a sham.

When the contract was up, another company bid substantially lower and they replaced the P.O.s with low paid Security officers from the projects with PERCs. and gave them guns. Why? tax incentives for hiring certain people from certain zip codes (low income).

Currently the new owner supposedly only hires off duty officers. I have only seen a fat fuck that looks like he is a half block run away from a heart attack in that squad car. Occasionally you see another pair of so called officers working the car but most of the time is the fat guy. Now not only do they monitor zone 6 but they get on the air to respond to calls or make silly comments. The 19P are very welcome and it helps with backlogs but keep your mouth shut and stay off the radio with stupid shit. I remember the fat fuck once was trying to get into a foot chase but stopped running and went back to the car to call it in to the zone. He was huffin and puffin while trying to tell the zone that he lost them somewhere on western.

Oh well, it is what it is, you get what you pay for.

This article about a private company not having “arrest authority” isn’t really accurate. The state statutes do provide for some limited citizen arrests powers that everyone has. As for who is civilly liable for their actions, that is the guard company who is required by state law to carry insurance to cover that.

Additionally it is pretty common for the city to commission private security guards as “special police” and the ordinance extends to them all the authority of the regular police as well as the constitutional tort liability (this has been tested in court many times over the last 100 years).

The concept of private police operating in Chicago isn’t anything really new either. Take for example the University of Chicago Police, the university is a private institution operating their own police and they too answer 911 calls and what not. Over the years several hospitals have also done the same thing, such as Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

However, the article does state a very valid point, what kind of training do these guards have ? The public demands a certain level of competence from law enforcement officers today and few private concerns are willing to pay for the level of training the public has come to expect. Therefore, while this is all legal, is it any benefit to the citizens to have untrained responders running about and one has to wonder how solvent their insurance company is because there is huge liability when a security guard does more then just stand around and look nice.

My guess is your watch commander is probably as stupid as you are. The private company is probably lobbying for the authority to issue ordinance violations, much like the traffic enforcement aids do. If they were trying to right movers and make arrests, they'd be down in Springfield looking for authority to enforce state statutes.

Obama to disarm pilots

Tuesday, March 17, 2009
EDITORIAL: Guns on a plane

After the September 11 attacks, commercial airline pilots were allowed to carry guns if they completed a federal-safety program. No longer would unarmed pilots be defenseless as remorseless hijackers seized control of aircraft and rammed them into buildings.

Now President Obama is quietly ending the federal firearms program, risking public safety on airlines in the name of an anti-gun ideology.

Every business or community that desires to pay for private security are well within their rights, however these private security guards have no legal authority to enforce city or state law on public property. If a motorist, especially while we have police imposters, refuses to obey their commands, what can they do? Nothing, not without risking a huge law suit and possibly arrest for false arrest or kidnapping.

Well is the partol area a gated community or open city Streets? If the latter I truly dont think that this Private Firm will have the (key words here PAY ATTENTION) CHARTER or COMMISSION from the state to do that.Before we all jump to delusions here, lets see what they actually do. Again there are VERY CLEAR State Guidelines for this sort of Security Work.Most likely it was a "hook up" contract for a "connected" company. In Chicago? Perish the thought. And to the 3/19/09 12:15 AM post....HOW are YOU forced to sign the complaint? Why would you perjur yourself and open yourself to a suit for something YOU didnt do? Old School Lesson: No Complaint No Crime.If they(guards in 011) have a detention,they sign the complaint either on behalf of the location they work(Agent acting on behalf) or as victim/complainant. Generally this usually amounts to a 1330 arrest. If the guard doesnt or is unwilling to sign a complaint then NOTHING HAPPENED.

Paid or out sourced security police making arrests on the public way are:

Mercenaries or vigilante outfits.

INVESTIGATIVE QUESTIONS:

1. Who hired / licensed them to work in City? Their bosses???

2. Who supports "Public Way" arrests by private police? They should be fired after the law suits.

3. Is Daley planning to out source the policing in Chicago as a supplement to the Olympic Game enforcement?

4. Does Weis know about this illegal activity? ie, stops and searches of persons on the public way?

5. Who insures these activities?

6. Are they even true, the allegations or rumors?

7. Did the commander address this at roll call?

8. Where did he get his information?

How are you arresting someone on a POSSESSION charge based only on a civilian witness' testimony?

I do not think that you have probable cause to make that arrest and I don't think a court will think you have it either.

Unless there is a General Order clarifying this policy, those drugs are FOUND PROPERTY (Vice case report-found narcotics). You can include the civilian witness (security guard's) statements in your report and forward your report to the narcotics division. If Narcotics wants to call in an ASA, re-interview the witness, and get a warrant based on the witness' obersvation, then they can do that.

I'll tell you right now that if you make an arrest for a possession charge based only on a witness' statement, you are going to lose that case in court, you are going to get sued, and you're going to lose that case too.

If a supervisor wants to order you to do this, you better make it damn clear in your reports that you were ordered to make this arrest.

At the top of each arrest report write the following:

That won't cover you.

You better get the name of a supervisor who is on-scene and a watch commander who has been apprised of the specific details of the case you are handling. You better make that very clear in your arrest report that your arrest was based only upon your supervisor's ORDER that there was probable cause to make that arrest.

Let the Sgt. or Lt. explain why they had probable cause when the suit is filed.

As a retired po po can I "patrol" and arrest on my block?
I didn't think so. Not a good idea?
What's the difference?

Maybe me giving classes on "dead fall" devices in garages would be a better way to divert my energy and protect coppers property when they are at work away from home.

A dead fall is a device that "falls" when a trip is released. Usually downwards, onto the "tripper". If a ladder is used or something like that, something usually found in a garage and in it's manufactured state, it's not illegal...unless, of course, the resident gives himself up with a statement of intent.

Good hunting

Read ILCS 5-12 and so on with regards to the law relavent to Security Guards. Again it isnt clear what their assignment is. Is it public streets or gated/private property? Bear in mind that should you decide to engage one of them,they now (as of 2008) have laws in place to protect them.(Protected Employee) They should ONLY be a deterrent and not Reactive Forces(such as Police)simply drive around and write reports for the company and call in on a cell phone if there is something amiss. Hint to the 004 guys: CHECK THE TAN CARDS and FOID CARDS!They MUST have the following at all times:

a.Company ID with a contact number
b. Valid DL or State ID
C. PERC(Blue)Card
D. FCC(Tan) Card
E. FOID card

They are NOT required to have a gun registration card so sorry no UUW pinch there. :(

Vehicles(Security Patrol Cars) cannot:

a. have red or blue flashing lights
b. have a siren
c. MUST BE MARKED AS "SECURITY"

Police Capable Radios:

Touchy subject. Generally not allowed however some firms have been issued zone radios. Hey its Chicago right?

ADDITIONAL HINT TO THE 004 guys:

If youre gonna "do" them do them right.Additionally, Should you arrest one of them BE CERTAIN to Call IDPFR at(Chicago Office) 1 312 814 4547 Investigator Rich Cauble or the Springfield Office at 1 217 782 0458(be prepared to be on hold for half an hour)
Guards are MANDATED to report their arrest to the DPR and failure to do so wll result in revocation of their Blue and Tan Cards.

It is wrong to compare these rent-a-cops to the Police Officers of the different universities in the Chicago area. The U of C police and the U.I.C. police are actual police officers and are state certified. Also, what happens when one of these rental units gets a little nervous in a sticky situation and shoots someone ? Once the $1,000,000 liability is met who will pay ? Most likely the city because the city is the entity that hired these goofs in the 1st place. If they have arrest powers, are they going to march a prisoner into the district and get the watch commander to approve the charges? This has disaster written all over it! A 40 hour class hardly qualifies one as the police. Most of us went to the academy for 6 months and some are still not the police. This should be interesting.

Lets face it our department does not have a clean and uber professional image like the Naperville Police Department, the Schaumberg Police Department or the US Secret Service. I'm willing to bet you will see more gated communities in Chicago. As a department each individual member needs to go out and do their best each and every day to earn the public trust. We all earn very good salaries and we should be very grateful we have been chosen to serve and protect. As far as I am concerned Supt. Weis is earning way beyond his salary everyday. I am on furlough now but when I return to Chicago I will work with a sense of purpose and honor. I challenge my fellow Blueshirts to do the same.

First of all never sign a complaint for anyone. Unless you yourself are the complainant.

Would you let a citizen order you to wright a parker or mover? Hell No!!! Don't let these want-A-be's order you to do anything.

Tell them to call the zone and report the violation. Then if the zone assigns you the job, investigate it and if it warrents a ticket then wright it, if not don't. Use your discresion.

If they call you or flag you down because they violated some guys rights by searching him on the street and found a rock. How can you justify locking the guy up???

Did you see him in posession of the drugs? NO! DID you find the drugs on his person? NO! So where is your probable cause??? You have none!!!

I would lock up the guy who is in posession when I arrived on the scene. The Security Gaurd!!!

Don't ever let one of these clowns put you in the trick bag because they want to PLAY POLICE.

If you are ordered to do an arrst report for one of these guys it's real simple.

First line on arrest report should read. The A/O was ordered to complete this report by .........

The A/O did not make the physical arrest and has no knowledge of the preliminary investigation or the details which lead the the arrest.

Do not ask the arrestee any questions, other than his name, address, Ect. There is no need for you to advise him of Miranda. And when asked in court just tell them no I did not advise the arrestee I only complted the paper work.

Name the guard who made the physical arrest and hand cuffed the arrestee. Enter his statement to establish the probable cause.

Let the supervisor who odered you to do the arrest report and the Watch Commander testify in court as to the manner in which the arrest was made. Let the Security Guard testify to the arrest and the probable cause.

NEVER sign a complaint for one of these fools, if they won't sign the complaint there is no arrest!!!

Fuck the Commander, how much is he getting to allow this to happen in his district? How much is he getting to allow the fake Police to park their fake Police Cars in the Police lot in violation of the posted signs? They take up two spots with each car including their personal cars? Some of which have no City stickers and Exp. plates.

Take a look at the fake police cars. They are not allowed to have or use any colored lights except YELLOW on the street. The are not allowed to have or use a siren or other electronic warning device.

Start keeping a record of all the violations commited.

They bitch to the Commander, you have the right to file a complaint with the ILL. Dept. of Professional Regulation. You also have the right to make an arrest if one of these clowns violate ANY stae law or City Ordinance.

Their job is to protect the propety of the businesses that have hired them, nothing more. This does not include making street stops and searching those poeple. If they see a crime being commited on the street, they are supposed to call the REAL POLICE, nothing more.

The concept of private police operating in Chicago isn’t anything really new either. Take for example the University of Chicago Police, the university is a private institution operating their own police and they too answer 911 calls and what not. Over the years several hospitals have also done the same thing, such as Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

True. But at least they (U of C., Northwestern, Loyola, County Hospital Police) are all State Certified and have gone through the 400+ hour Metro course at the Academy.

They are usually off-duty suburban cops. They have never asked for anything, but show up on jobs and offer to help. Since 004 is usually in a backlog, why not?

They have better cars, equipment, and weaponry than we do. Speaks volumes, doesn't it?

Obviously rank and file Chicago Police Officers don't inspire the public trust anymore! How can we trust coppers when you have a decorated traffic unit guy get busted for official miscnduct and virtually every year there has been a corruption scandal involving Chicago Police Officers. Lets face it our department does not have a clean and uber professional image like the Naperville Police Department, the Schaumberg Police Department or the US Secret Service. I'm willing to bet you will see more gated communities in Chicago. As a department each individual member needs to go out and do their best each and every day to earn the public trust. We all earn very good salaries and we should be very grateful we have been chosen to serve and protect. As far as I am concerned Supt. Weis is earning way beyond his salary everyday.

You may want to VERY CAREFULLY check that company, WSA Inc at 343 South Dearborn Suite 2013 1 312 322 0000 or 1 312 446 9141. It is licensed to a former CPD Capt.(name withheld) who has a mailing address in the 9800 Block of South Winchester. It is run by a person by the name of Ibrahim Kiswani who has a discipline record on his Blue Card.(number avaliable in the DPR website) WSA was formerly NSA security and had to fold because the License holder(one of them) a former Dolton (i believe)PO was INDICTED.Prior to that they ran under the name of Phoenix Security and lost a lucrative CHA contract because they allegedly DIDNT HAVE INSURANCE. My advise is to check all these Security people regularly for proper ID and Credentials. It is alleged that they employ guards under different tan cards other than the company that holds the contract. DPR Rules(Detective Act 134) States that the tan card must be issued by the company that actually holds the contract that the armed person is working at.They MUST BE uniformed with SECURITY prominantly displayed and must possess proper credentials INCLUDING COMPANY ID CARDS.They (WSA/NSA) tried to snag a contract in 018 in Cabrini doing the same thing (taking OT from PO's) They ALSO allegedly have Guards signing in as Police so as to obtain the Police rate of pay at their contracted sites.

Those being:

A. Hilliards(22nd and State)
Senior/Mixed income units
b. 3939 S Lake Park
c. 3983 S Lake Park
d. The Ickes

CAREFULLY INSPECT THESE PEOPLES CREDENTIALS FOR MATCHING FOID AND AGENCY NUMBERS.

If they do NOT have ALL the State Required Credentials they cannot legally work as a guard at any location. And REMEMBER to file the complaint with the IDPR.

Steiner Security Services. While I agree with the Accidental Discharges,there is no way they can be legally issued a Tan Card without submitting to an ISP background check.If they Do have a Criminal Record and are working you can BET that they havent reported it to DPR. Perhaps an annonymous letter to DPR with an arrest history might clear that up.You know what to cut off that sheet.

I will say this. There was one Security guard i have encountered in nearly a 21 year span on this job that truly had his shit together and did a hell of a job.He worked on the Northside and other areas of the City in Public Housing. He was never the police due to a medical issue with his knee.(Plastic and Screws)However,he took painstaking effort to assist us when we came into the projects with keys to gain access to vacants and provided us with enough CREDIBLE information so as to effect 3 consipiracy missions netting over 50+ arrests.The ARRESTS he made were valid and contributed vastly to the reduction in overall crime in the D.O.C. at that time which was soley the projects.While I whole heartedly concur that most guards lack the ability to spell their names right without looking at their nametags,this guy had it together.He knew the District Objectives,and did his part at his level to contribute and didnt once that I ever saw cross any lines or get in the way of any our jobs.He ALWAYS showed up in court and won most of his cases. I wont lump this guy into the same shit heap that most security guards and contractors are in. Its rare to find and he was truly a rare guy.Our project now is becoming a crime haven again and I quietly hope that he and his crew find a way (and adequate pay) to return here as they truly did fine work.

Stay away from the police....

Never violate any traffic laws, ever! ( you will be ticketed by police that hate us).
Allows carry perc, tan, foid and company ID.
Keep weapon in level 3 or higher security holster at all times.
Dont use handcuffs, even if required to carry them .
(Handcuffing puts you close enough to be disarmed.)
Dont bother with asp baton, they dont work...use strong OC spray for defense.
Wear good quality tac boots for running away, if nothing else.
Dont mess with citizens because you are bored. Its not worth risking an incident.

I'm a white shirt from another district. If a private citizen or a security guard calls you and says he wants somebody arrested because HE stopped them and found dope on them you MAY take them into custody and process them. You CANNOT sign the complaint. YOU did not witness the crime, the security guard did. HE must sign the complaint, NOT YOU! You more than likely accept prisoners all the time from private citizens. Take for instance a shoplifter. The store witnesses the crime, they call us, we accept the prisoner and process him accordingly, right? Why can't you do the same for a dope pinch? You do the paper work, THEY sign the complaint. If they refuse, do a vice case report and inventory the dope as found property. If a white shirt orders you do sign the complaint, I would refuse. It's an unlawful order. You will win your case at the various remedies that are available to you. Plus, mucho money for them firing you or making your life miserable. Any white shirt that says otherwise or orders you to sign a complaint for anything YOU DO NOT WITNESS is a misfit and unworthy of command be it a Sgt. or the Superintendent of Police!

Do not sign complaints for something you do not observe. If a supervisor orders you to you better document this in your report. Include security officer so and so (his perc info) handed R/D suspect cannabis/crack whatever. Document what the offender says happened including how much money he had when stopped by security officer so and so. Get the security guards contact info if they refuse do not make an arrest. You have to cover youself in the report when the complaints come it is you that made the arrest and you that will be held liable.

Wonder if you'd try that with me?My badge says Cook county Sheriff on it not CPD. And you need to adjust your comment to "after I was released from Intensive Care and had to undergo facial reconstruction in court I'd say.".........You must be a South sider.

***********

Now you're just throwing your weight around - you know damn well what I meant. A badge that is government-backed is valid. One that is issued by Securitas or WhateverTheFuck is not.
As for my location - I'm on the NW side, and as for my own facial reconstruction that is debatable. Yours may be too. Keep in mind we both put our pants on one leg at a time, and both pay taxes. I'm here to learn as a citizen; not get shit from people like you who have to assert themselves and their position in terms of relevance.

if they have powers of arrest, then they can sign complaints just like railroad cops can.

DON'T SIGN COMPLAINTS FOR THEM!

3/19/2009 10:19:00 AM


Interesting....maybe I should check the crime victim signing a complaint for Police Credentials then too BRAINDEAD. Last time I checked you DIDNT NEED TO BE SWORN to sign a complaint. You affirm by your signature that the above is true and correct. The Office "clerks" the complaint with his/her name. THATS not completing a complaint for someone. Or did I miss something 23 years ago??????

INVESTIGATIVE QUESTIONS:

1. Who hired / licensed them to work in City? Their bosses???

2. Who supports "Public Way" arrests by private police? They should be fired after the law suits.

3. Is Daley planning to out source the policing in Chicago as a supplement to the Olympic Game enforcement?

4. Does Weis know about this illegal activity? ie, stops and searches of persons on the public way?

5. Who insures these activities?

6. Are they even true, the allegations or rumors?

7. Did the commander address this at roll call?

8. Where did he get his information?

Answer these and you've got a great story and you can go from there. Now, detach your lips from the mayor's ass and get to work.

Answers:

1.they are licensed by the state of illinois.
Company name is:Total Security Management out of OakBrook
License Holder: Anthony Arcarro
Former Canadian Intelligence Officer and Vice President of the Kard Protection Group of Oak Park Illinois.
2.There should be no "sidewalk
arrests" If the police process
this type of Arrest Shame on them.Again no complaint no crime,if they balk call a boss to decide the outcome.
3. Olympic Policing remains the
sole responsibility of CPD while other Police Agencies(county,state and ewww federal)will be involved,CPD is roundtabling concepts for Mass Policing. (hell roll tapes from the 67-8 DN convention THAT worked.)

4. Weis doesnt know why he took his last breath. What makes you think he knows/cares about this?

5. Insurance for these activities is the responsibility of the Contractor under State not City guidelines.
6.Allegations are simply that.Allegations.If anyone has proof to offer I can direct you to the correct agency to complain to.

7. dont work in 005 dont know.
8. again dont work in 005 dont know

More info as it becomes avaliable.

HOW CAN THE WHATEVER OF THE FOP, SAY ON NATIONAL T.V. SECURITY GUARDS CANT ARREST PEOPLE. WHEN AN AVERAGE CITIZEN HAS THE POWER TO CITIZEN ARREST. AND IF YOU WERE FORCED TO SIGN A COMPLAINT, YOU PROBABLY SHAKE THE DRUG-DEALER DOWN,USUALLY.

You may want to VERY CAREFULLY check that company, WSA Inc at 343 South Dearborn Suite 2013 1 312 322 0000 or 1 312 446 9141. It is licensed to a former CPD Capt.(name withheld) who has a mailing address in the 9800 Block of South Winchester. It is run by a person by the name of Ibrahim Kiswani who has a discipline record on his Blue Card.(number avaliable in the DPR website) WSA was formerly NSA security and had to fold because the License holder(one of them) a former Dolton (i believe)PO was INDICTED.

Oh PLEASE....PLEASE arrest me. You have a nice house. Id like to get that,and your life savings and your pension and your car.Dont n eed your guns as MY shit is better by far anyway. PLEASE......
If you did more than sit and bitch all day WE wouldnt have to do YOUR Job on Commmercial. As far as your Union goes.....what a Joke. Go Cry to Donahue about it.SEE how much gets done. Whats a matter? You MAD because we're in your Hiding Spot? Worthless. Let me put it to you THIS way. If YOU come in OUR area and cross the line in the LEAST....Ill be HAPPY to put a CR on your ass. By all means when you grow SPINE, You bring your threat.
I always WANTED to get rich



Hey toy cop, let me put it to you like this. The only reason you talk tough with your so called doing MY job on commercial, is because you are given support by "US". My job? what do you do other than sit in your patrol car and monitor the cameras for the stores? Thats it. Im gonna love to see the first street stop or traffic stop you pull and see how they react to you. You think your tough with that better gun. These boys out here have more powerful guns and trust me, as was the case on Exchange, are not afraid to use them. The only reason the gangs havent fucked with you guys is because of US, trust me. They fear the CPD with us being outnumbered and outgunned, because they know that if they fuck with one of us that they have to fuck with all of us. We command respect. What's your flashlight mall security ass gonna do when they fuck with one of your own. CALL US. So watch your mouth and give us the respect we deserve. I dont give a fuck what Pope or Beale think, we LET you patrol. As far as Im concerned your right im gonna stay out of YOUR area. I dont need to be messing with a Paul Bart wannabe cop, I dont need you trying to get a number on me and trying to sue me with your 10/hr job. Im gonna let you try and play the police and give you something to tell your momma when you get home, maybe you can hang a copy of your first ticket on the fridge, boy are you gonna make her so proud. When you've had your fun trying to play cop and ruin that neighborhood more than it already is. Then Ill come clean up YOUR mess. Just one question for you. How many times you fail the police exam? Yeah, that's what I tought. Keep holding that flashlight. "I see you, I see you"

Thank you BROTHER! It was probably the dark newer Crown Vic. Pay attention to the following names;

a. IBRAHIM KISWANI
b. ISRAEL ORTIZ
c. FRANK MERCADO(felon)
for openers. The red/blue light issue should have been a ticket ect. That is CLEARLY Impersonating the Police. Several other IVC's but no space for that. If the car STILL registers to NSA.....NSA is NO LONGER IN BUSINESS.As of last year. Im not blaming you brother you didnt know...now you DO. Insofar as uniform goes,the State says they must be "clearly marked" take that as you want. But all black and BDU sounds to me like they are trying to be HBT,or TRU.Again CHECK CREDENTIALS as "a" is very shady in operation and dances on the line of illegality on a daily basis.

To "3/19/2009 05:34:00 PM" .."Screaming Skull"

I think your sense of dedication and commitment is admirable. If you don't understand the times we live and work in, you should BE committed.

Any department is going to have a few bad examples. The larger the department the more likely it is to happen.

The CPD gets nailed by the Chicago media because we are close. Their offices are downtown, so all they have to do is drive about 3 miles to 3510 S. Michigan to have a press conference.

As for your "rah-rah" attitude, this is not the time for it. If you had a department and city administration that backed you up, it would be OK.

At one time, the upper ranks, the media and the courts gave the copper the benefit of the doubt. Now you are presumed to be racist/brutal/stereotyping/over-reacting unless you can prove otherwise.

Since we, the CPD don't arrest a lot of people anymore, and when we do it gets very expensive, what with sending them to court and all, the rent-a-cops may be the way of the future.

No more hassling people for just standing on the street and bothering with all those loitering event numbers.

Just have the rent-a-cops issue them all ANOV's.

Dope? ANOV

UUW? ANOV

Homicide? a big ANOV.

My GOD! Im ashamed to admit I do Security for a living after reading some of this.
However,thanks to the PO for the accolade and I miss you guys too.The key to Security work,If you are to be effective,is:(how I do it anyway)

1.Find a balance point between community,police,client.Many many times very much easier said than done. I was FORTUNATE to work around stand up cops in 019 and where they left off i picked up and vice versa.
2. Know your place on the food chain.This applies to CPD as well. I may be bottom rung and thats ok,I get things done.I am NOT a hero,a bad ass or a wanna be.I dont walk around with an untouchable attitude or think Im better than the next guy. I am simply a man going to work to do a job in a shit neighborhood around violent people.My JOB is defined as protecting the Residents and the property of the Lathrop Homes.Note here 'lives' is the First priority.
3. Of COURSE there is going to be dissention between Police and Security due to differences in Job Responsibilities and perceived authority.The key there ISNT to cry to the Boss about it its to BE A MAN first before all else and admit error and LEARN from it,being thankful you are alive to do so.
4. Establish CREDIBILITY with the States Attorneys office,the judges and the circuit court system.Many MANY security guards AND Police cant properly testify if their lives depended on it.
5. CONTINUE EDUCATION. Take classes
attend seminars,listen to what Stand Up cops have to say,take input from the community,and STRIVE TO MAKE THAT DIFFERENCE.
I have never wanted to be the police much less chicago Police,and due to a bum leg I cant.But I would give my life to protect one of you any time any day without question or hesitation.And It pains methat that sentiment isnt at least somewhat reciprocal.
My industry has MANY MANY uneducated ignorant jaded people employed in it as Im sure yours does as well.Im not judging any of the Fine WORKING officers of the chicago Police Department as I have worked along side most of you and was proud and honored to do so.
Those of you that are judging the Security havent worked around ME.
And lastly: SHOW RESPECT TO THE OFFICE.That works BOTH ways gentlemen.Im not asking for respect from ANY PO.I earned that many years ago. My point here while long and verbose,is to say Im not atypical of the lunchpail carrying Security Guard. Those of you that know me I value our Friendships and will cherish our times in battle in the Projects.To those that DO NOT.....Take a minute and get to. You'd be surprised.

Take care and God Bless The Chicago Police Department (and SCC)

Sorry Officer FIFE you need correction ONCE AGAIN:

1. You do NOT train with the police
CIVILIANS(YOU) are not allowed in POLICE firing ranges. You mostlikely train at 109 and Western where CIVILIANS(YOU)get classes.

2. Because you are certified does NOT mean you know how to use what you carry. People have DL's and still cant drive.

3. You do not "book" anyone Danno.
You call 911,you DETAIN the alleged offender,relate the facts to the Responding PO(US)and if found credible by the PO(us) you sign a complaint.WE(the Police) then transport the offender to the XXX station for further processing and assign you a court date. YOU do not process or book anyone.

Just so youre clear Barney.And make sure you keep that bullet in your pocket moron.

Every citizen has arrest powers for misdemeanors or felonies which occur in their presence, or past felonies. You don't need ANY special 'categorization' for that. So what are you saying again?

My rebuttal was towards Special Police and I believe I said(although not clearly,sorry) THEY have Police Powers however ONLY on the property assigned and ONLY while on duty. But thanks for clearing up the err of my post.
