Realignment Rumors Get Louder

And now we come to what we and others feel was the primary reason J-Fed was brought to Chicago:
  • More than 1,200 times last year, residents of the South Chicago and Gresham police districts called 911, and there was no car available to respond.

    In the Foster Avenue and Belmont districts on the North Side, the same thing happened only ten times.

    On Thursday, those disparate figures for “radio assignment pending” calls were introduced by disgruntled Chicago aldermen as “Exhibit A” in the case for beat realignment, something that hasn’t been done in Chicago since 1985.

Ike "Waiting for the Federal Indictment" Carothers wants action now:
  • Carothers said he’s so tired of waiting for Police Supt. Jody Weis to deliver the police equivalent of reapportionment, he’s threatening to push through a City Council “order” that it be done by a specific date.
Welcome to being the political fall guy for Daley's 20 years of inaction J-Fed! You aren't going to be able to please all the aldercreatures, so they'll be demanding your head. They'll get it, too, as soon as the mayor claims it's a police matter he left in your hands even though everything you've done has been at the behest of Shortshanks. The man behind the curtain will be pushing you under the bus at the earliest opportunity. Count on it.

Deputy Superintendent Dugan gives a hint of what's to come:
  • As for the geographic disparity in “radio assignment pending” calls, Dugan said “violence and life-and-limb” calls are always moved to the “top of the pile.” It’s the borderline calls that sometimes get short-shrift — and might need to be handled differently.

    “We as a department dispatch approximately 68 percent of the calls we receive at the 911 center. Look at major cities throughout the United States. They’re dispatching at about 30 percent,” Dugan said.

    “We might be a victim of our own success. We’ve asked people to call 911, and people call 911. Are they all the right calls? Or can we maybe [divert some calls] to a more appropriate venue that doesn’t require a police officer actually showing up at the scene.”

The street cop would welcome a reduction in calls from 68% to 30%. Fire doesn't need a baby sitter every time there's a ambulance call. Kids not listening to grandma and not eating vegetables is a failure of parenting, not a police matter. Camera watchers calling in parking violators is a waste of an entire system. Missions that generate nothing but event numbers need to end. The list of nonsense goes on.

Re-prioritize the call system first. Then hire 1,000 cops. Then close two districts while realigning everything. Problem solved.

Start with the 008th District first. Split it at Pulaski so the HARD WORKING, LAW ABIDING, HIGH TAX PAYING citizens can finally get the True Police service they deserve. The Guys working the west-end can only do so much after being continually dragged to the east and far east end of the 008 whilst burglaries, robberies, tagging and gang related incidents are on the rise out west only to be stacked in the waiting. 811 & 812's beat is the size of the 007th district and we are LUCKY if there are 2 cars up in that area that size....WHAT A JOKE. Its more important to dispatch all the nonsense out east and hold every car down on it and all the while the west end gets short changed......time after time after time. Another area is Saint Bede, just look at what has happened there in the past 3yrs! Talk about sad. A great area now in peril cause the cancer has spread and there is no 834 to be seen cause its always held down at Ford City nonsense or east-end bullshit. And for the people who will complain about the split citing "there are only taking care of the white areas! or "they are only doing it cause the police live out there!" I say to you that the east end will also benefit because you will have more police to answer you calls of nonsense. Lets face it. Biggest residential district in the city, highest calls for service, backlogg EVERYDAY 8am to 3am winter thru summer, a major airport, ford city area, scottsdale area, some of the worst public schools in terms of violence before/after school, and the list goes on and on. Its a dam miracle that no Police Officer has gotten seriously hurt out here. If any place needs the help, it would be the 008th district. The men and women out here are doing amazing things everyday out there in 008. Time to help out and help the other Districts too! Put aside the political nonsense and use some COMMON SENSE city council, jody weis and Mayor daley.....the Police and Citizens deserve it! Stay safe everyone, watch your partners back, and always go home safe to your loved ones. Sorry for the long rant, but it had to be said. Contract NOW!

Former LAPD Chief Bill Gates quoted in his book "Chief" Chicago is the only Police Department that he knows of that sends a uniformed response to 95% of it's 911 Calls. Daley's prevailing thought has always been if the called the Police, no matter how arcane or ridiculous send the Police.
It's 2009 & we STILL Handwrite reports? That sums up this state of the art Department.

SCC makes sense, because in reality, were short almost 2,000 cops from 20 years ago. Daley isn't going to hire like that ever again, so 1,000 new hires and 600 from two closed districts almost makes up the gap, it eliminates at least a few exempt spots and allows the city to close two outdated buildings that leak money without spending on the capital improvements that two brand new stations would entail.

I have a feeling that if Districts are re-aligned,old timers that have basically been thinking of retiring may just do it and our numbers will shrink even more.
Dugan hit the nail on the head. The whole public mentality of calling 911 for every single thing is outdated and given current manpower statistics near impossible to handle adequately. Get the desk dollies out, clear out those hiding at 35th street, have dispatchers funnel the calls where they belong. The solutions are not easy, it would be easier if those who use the 911 system the most had some common sense, but we know that ain't gonna happen.

In 004 Dugan...you can prioritize calls how ever you want. There is still no one to send. Please think before you speak. You obviously do not understand. 004 is way too big. It needs to be smaller or the manpower has to be given a boost. I don't think it's right that the outside units come in here (like TRU) and do not have to answer a radio assignment when all cars are down and long backlogged. What makes them so ELITE?

U notice that 019 and 020 were mentioned as having the fewest raps. That should tell the idiot mayor once and for all to close 023. Not that long ago there was no 023. 019 and 020 handled what is now 023. 019 is an area and 020 has a new building. That leaves 023 as the odd man out. The city supposedly has land purchased to be the new 023. Sell the land!!!!!!! The property has to be worth a ton of money. That would put money in the cities coffers. The dists of 019, 020, and 023 each only have 9 beats. Close 023 and turn 019 and 020 into 12 beat dists. The problem would be solved. U just have to add a few extra foot posts to 019 to cover some nightlife spots that would be picked up in the change.

I worked in 019, the dist is slow and so is 023. We might as well not exist in the winter. I have worked in 020 its even slower than the other two dists.

The police are despised by the yuppies, gays, lesbians, and all the other liberals in the area. The police wouldn't be missed.

A few days ago in 025 a woman called for the police 3 times because her 8 year old nephew punched her 3 year old boy. Some nitwit actually pulled an RD for the event. She wanted the 8 year old locked up for battery.

What a waste of police time and resources.

Needless to say she didn't receive police service - for the obvious reason that we shouldn't be incarcerating 8 year olds for acting like an 8 year old. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it also against the law to lock anyone under the age of 10?

Disability Officers are supposed to be paid by the city but ours are paid by our fund, When asked to file a suit regarding this situation both Hauser and the Director refused to answer or be part of a suit!

Another thing about 008 there are NINE high schools in 008, and only 4 of them are not really trouble schools (Maria, St. Rita, Luther and Hancock) Good thing is that when they open the school at 55th and St Louis that will be a 009 problem except for when they get out of school and it will take some problems away from Kennedy, because the kids east will want to go there instead of Kennedy, I do not think that there are any other districts that have more high schools in them. the least thing that should be done with 008 is give everything east of California to 007 and 022 and south of 79th and east of Cicero to 022 also and keep or get more officers in the district so that these areas can be remappedinto smaller beats

All paper jobs are supposed to be done by 311. How many times do you go to a job that the offender is not on scene and the caller tells the operator that when they call. No reason for a car to respond to write a criminal damage report. Theft reports should be done by 311.

Parents calling because their kids don't want to go to school or their kids are disrespecting them is not a call that requires police service. Raise your own kids!!!

Kids playing basketball in the street shouldn't even be dispatched unless you have a complainant. I'd rather have them playing than shooting.

A missing person should be done over the phone to the missing persons section unless there are special circumstances that warrant the police.

Start with the 008th District first.

--I agree that 008 is way too big and should be divided.
The realignment should move more officers over there. I know there are a lot of hard workers over there. There is no back-up in 008 because every car is down on some nonsense. 008 is always in a backlog. The PO's in 008 do try hard to stay on their beat, but it rarely happens because they get pulled away constantly.

The 2nd, 12th & 21st districts haven't been downsized. In the past they needed the personnel there because there were a lot of projects that housed a gazillion people. Those projects are mostly gone now so there's no need for all of those officers. The districts that have high residency of homes should be the ones with the most personnel.

Downsize all these specialized units and put the personnel back in the beat cars. The presence of police does help so when you have free reign to roam citywide or through the area, you're not helping any.

The city should be broken up into three districts.

Black District

Hispanic District

All Others District

Each District has the appropriate superintendent and the appropriate officers to enforce law in a manner that conforms to each district's "culture." People in the city can sign up for police service from their District of choice.

UUUMMMM WTF? Close TWO Dists? WHY? How about something as simple as HIRING MORE FUCKING POLICE!=============

SCC makes sense, because in reality, were short almost 2,000 cops from 20 years ago. Daley isn't going to hire like that ever again, so 1,000 new hires and 600 from two closed districts almost makes up the gap, it eliminates at least a few exempt spots and allows the city to close two outdated buildings that leak money without spending on the capital improvements that two brand new stations would entail.

4/17/2009 06:03:00 AM

Closing Districts does not create more police officers!!!!

If you close a District, then it needs to be obsorbed by a adjoining District. The same amount of land and calls will need to be serviced.

The only thing you gain by closing a District is a Commander, WC's, Tact Lt's, CAP Sgts. All the PO's working the beats, tact teams, mission cars, etc in the District will still be doing those jobs in the same area but just under a different call sign. 1362 will be made into 1165. Bt 1311 would become 1217 etc.

The positions that would be doubled up and where you save manpower are inside personel who would then be shifted to inside personel in another district!

Do you think the Commander of 013 is going to be riding a bt car helping us with manpower? Do you think a Capt from 013 is? What about the Tact Lt? Fuck no.

The whole closing of Districts will be smoke and mirrors.

The problem has nothing to do with realigning beats. It is no secret (except to the media and the majority of the citizens)that we are short ALOT of police.

Compound that with several areas of the city just loaded with "animals" that have the highest volume of calls (and hand-waivers) PERIOD! 90% of those calls are BULLSHIT!

Bullshit "selling", "shots fired", battery in progress" calls and the list goes on and on and on.

All this bullshit is what leads to the backlogs and unanswered 911 calls. There is nothing realigning beats can do.

The rest of the city has been suffering for YEARS with lack of police service. Areas of the city where people actually work, pay taxes and DESERVE police service and protection.

These are the areas that are seeing significant rizes in "REAL CRIME". But, these citizens are told to just suck it up and watch their neighborhood and property values go to shit, while we send all the police to deal with baby's mama drama!

There needs to be some major changes in this city and a good start would be by annexing 004 to the State of Indiana, 005 to Dolton and the maybe call in some airstrikes on 006, 007, half of 008 and half of 022. Problem solved!

First organizers dropped Chicago's South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day parade because things got out hand and now the charges against nearly two dozen revelers have been dropped.

Earlier this week the charges were dropped for unruly behavior against 21 people because 11 Chicago police officers failed to show up to court.

The police department is still trying to find out why officers didn't show and spokesman Roderick Drew says if they didn't have a good reason they'll be disciplined.

The parade was an annual event for 30 years. But the parade, which drew more than 300,000 people this year, was dangerously overcrowded and that even with a large police presence controlling the crowd was difficult.

The dependency upon the police is out of control on the south side and i'm sure the same can be said on the west side, but yet its always the polices' fault!

Take responsiblity, be in charge of your household and stop your dependency on the POLICE, with that said why should the taxpayers have to suffer over irresponsible parents.

I Guess that J-Stupid does not realize yet what a pawn and patsy he really is. Promises he cant keep, made with good intentions. Fucking Cozzi to show Daley he is on top of the CPD problems. He is reallt clueless and a fall guy. MAN UP J-Fed realize the low morale IS YOUR PROBLEM and YOUR FAULT. Resign lie you said you would do. Dont listen to those sycophants you have around you. WAke up and smell the coffee. This is not the FBI you were unprepared for the task you signed up for and you dont have time for on the job training. Call a press conference.

While I agree that 008 should be split into 2 districts because of it's massive size and population, I disagree about splitting it at Pulaski. The boundary should be the railroad tracks at Knox from I-55 to Marquette Road. It makes no sense to send a car that's at 53rd and Harlem all the way to 86th and Karlov when there's a backlog and it's the only car up and available.

By dividing 008 at the RR tracks ( a natural boundary), most of the boundary on the south end would be 65th St, except for the small area between Knox and Cicero from 65th to Marquette Road. This makes more sense and it puts all of Midway into the new district. Also, there won't be any arguement as to which district will handle the inevitable shootings and killings on Pulaski.

Oh, and ask the guys on the range when he qualified with the gun he was carrying on new years eve. Uh, NEVER! Mike says he wants to be sworn and Weis had no choice but to make it happen. I
wonder how many State laws were broken or circumvented to make that happen?

Today, 16 April is the 1 year anniversary of Mike's hiring. Is he on probation? Any other recruit would have been fired doing the things this idiot has done. How about the Pedestrian he hit? I hope that doesn't cost the city too much.

The Chicago Police doesn't have any part-time, reserve or "Special Police" employees, so why is this good still employed? He should be in jail.

Everyone was talking about "Enabling" the drunks on the job... isn’t this in the lines of "enabling “the corruption? Why close two districts? Why close any? The Department is budgeted for 13,500, well, how about this novel idea; lets get 13,500 sworn! As far as the bullshit about eliminating a few exempt spots. Do ya really think that’s going to happen? Seriously? Commander Smith, of the 026th Dist will be re assigned to some bullshit spot that someone (Supt, Alderscum, Mayor's orifice, or the orifice Mayor) will magically create! Don’t you think that this is just more smoke and mirrors, diverting us from the real problem? MANPOWER?

Look into the budget that was put in place during the HILLIARD regime for the new construction of Police and Fire stations. Where did that money go? Were ALL of those new stations built? You might find that interesting.

If City Hall wants less Police, JUST COME OUT AND SAY IT! Don’t piss on our legs and tell us its raining! HOWEVER, the budget should reflect accordingly! The Department has been saying & thinking “do more with less” before Mauer said it in the 001st Dist roll call room after the TABD Protest. Address the MANPOWER issue first, then lets talk about the re-alignment of beats and districts. Then, perhaps, we can discuss why we still need 50 wards, and 50 alderscum!
As far as the calls into and out of OEMC, that’s another story. Get some QUALIFIED dispatchers, and call takers. Lets not bullshit each other, we all know we have some good dispatchers and call takers and some are complete HORSESHIT! Per G.O., EVERY call has to be dispatched. Anyone think we can eliminate at least 20% of the bullshit at the phone? “Selling” calls coming from Anonymous without a description, “In progress” calls being called in from 30 blocks away… That shit can be stopped right at the call taker! “Auto accident, sir/ma’am, are the cars drivable? Oh, they are, well, then EXCHANGE INFO AND DRIVE YOUR HAPPY ASS TO A FUCKING STATION! And have a good day.” Some of us still are tied to a radio; I think we would know how to solve that problem.

Like I said, let’s address the MANPOWER issue first, and then let the Budget reflect the manpower. Afterwards we can look into re-aligning the Beats, Districts, Wards, Aldermen all we want. However, if anyone feels different, if you don’t think it just more of the old smoke and mirrors game, by all means… please let me know.

It all comes down to money. Close a station, save some money. This doesn't meen more Officers on the street, it meens less. Less backup for you on the street and slower response and less help for the taxpayer when he neeeds it.

It isn't getting better for the average good citizen, it's getting worse. Look at 016, less manpower for your money. When there were Police Officers patrolling, things were quiet. Now, take away your Officers. What do you think is going to happen?

The powers that be have already taken away a great deal of our numbers. It will get worse. These 10 hour day schedules are another way to whittle us down. Keep whining about the ex-Fed. He is the least of our problems. Look at the man behind it all. Time for a change.

Yes he has the money. TCF's Lease of the Skyway, Lease of the parking meters.
Then what's wrong with hiring sworn officers on their days off to man the beat cars, for time and a half. Yes they will have to answer call, write tickets etc.

Just a civilian, but I was uncomfortably close to the corner where the July 3rd shootings happened last summer. Plenty of cops were at the corner when the shots rang out so imagine my surprise the next a.m. when I saw on the news when it was all put on the police and the aldermen were all up in arms. Complete bullshit. I called my alderman (Solis) to tell him what I saw that night, emailed the reporters who "covered" the story to no avail, of course. Reporters and politicians get to go home after high-profile shootings, but you guys don't (thank god as someone who lives in Pilsen.)

Anyway, two things I learned that night--never run with the crowd when shots are fired, and that there's a population of kids who think it's HILARIOUS when they escape bullets. Seriously, they were doubled over with laughter. Wowza. A bit of the liberal in me died that night.

Anyway good luck with all this and stay safe this summer. And excellent blog btw!

Another area is Saint Bede, just look at what has happened there in the past 3yrs! Talk about sad.

Dear MSF,
When recovering a stolen with bad guys in it and the owner is on the scene you should return the vehicle to the owner. Take the bad guys and the victim/owner to the station. DONT leave the car there so the other bad guys fire bomb the vehicle. Plus dont try to pass the ARSON job off to the distrcit car.

Just some simple and free advise.

Yours truly,
Cop with some smarts.

off topic, but to the coppers in 008 and mobile strike force, thanks for all of the help in the midway neighborhood(64/long) when it went up for grabs and a 10-1 was called by an off duty who was in serious trouble. from what i heard m.s.f. responded and caught all of the bad guys and did a great job. its suprising to hear that msf is hangin out on the west end but thanks for responding and grabbing the bad guys because there is still alot of us that live in that neighborhood... keep it up guys, glad to see a unit helpin the tax payers and not just in the ghetto.

You're absolutely right about the great response for the off-duty P.O. but it was the first watch cars, the 806 team, and Area One midnight gang team that did all of the work. MSF had nothing to do with the arrest. Most of the midnight 10 sector cars are officers that live on the west end and care about the neighborhood. If it wasn't for them things would be far worse. Thanks for the hard work!

Our call response policies and report taking are all the work of mental midget Daley. He uses the police to kiss the asses of certain voting blocks who call with constant bullshit nonsense, due to their laziness and stupidity, and the taxpayers then have to pay, both with wasted tax dollars, and wasted manpower that should be policeing their neighborhoods that they, the taxpaying citizens, are entitled to as they constantly get short-changed in proper police protection, by the greedy Daley Cabal. The people who don't call the police unless it really is a problem, are the ones who get the LEAST police service, thanks to Daley & his band of dimwits. Meanwhile, the real cops on the street get run ragged, and Daley, AND the chicken-shit FLOP do NOTHING about it.

As in district like 005, 004, 008 and 022, you can realign the beats all you want. But when all hell is braeking loose and all the cars are tied up, what the fuck is the difference. You can align the beats by calls for service, but when every car is fighting with the high school mopes at dismissal, 2-3 bonafide shootings or homocides occur at the same time, the cars are out of service. The only logical solution is hire more cops, many more, and weed out the bullshit 911 calls. My son or daughter won't go to school, call the police. What the fuck you want us to do.

If thats the case then we are not all that short. Figure roughly 1200 Sgts, 900 dicks, 250 Lts & 75Capts. That leaves about 1300 short
but then you have maybe 100 exempts
plus all the other title codes like FTO, ET, Canine,etc etc which will fill a good portion of whats left.

The problem is we have a bunch on medical, at call back and then the districts have been stripped to form all sorts of special units that can be moved around the city so that we have unofficial manpower realighnment without the political problem of really realining the districts and beats.

They pull the same shit on CFD also, claiming chest pains when all they have is a yeast infection and want free meds from the ER. There are also plenty of times they call 911 from the ER because they are not getting treated fast enough and want a ride to a different hospital or when they are done and want a ride home.
There is one common factor in all the BS CPD and CFD calls.

Daley is not going to hire any new Officers until the pension REFORM committee presents it's recomendations to his highness.

All NEW officers will be a 401k and the rest of us are on our own until the pension money runs out oe is stolen! Daley has not paid the fund in years to what he is supposed to pay annually and the Director will not push the issue since he is appointed by his highness!

Disability Officers are supposed to be paid by the city but ours are paid by our fund, When asked to file a suit regarding this situation both Hauser and the Director refused to answer or be part of a suit!

So as to hiring any new Officers, MAYBE not this year or until this report comes out! Daley can then take this money for his precious OLYMPICS!

There are just so many inaccuracies in this post one hardly knows where to begin. The city does make its required contributions. Read the Pension Fund annual report it is all in there. It is the fund that pays disability payments. The city is required to continue making pension contributions. Read the law. It is in the ILCS. But of course the funds annual report and the ILCS are lying to everyone. Grow up.

The only logical solution is hire more cops, many more, and weed out the bullshit 911 calls. My son or daughter won't go to school, call the police. What the fuck you want us to do

--This is true. You very rarely see 2 cars on a job in 008. If you call for help, they will be there, but a regular call gets you no back up because NO cars available. Sad to say that you have to wait for shit to hit the fan FIRST before you can get back up.

Please leave the 019th and the 020th Districts alone. If I wanted to see or work with shitheads, I would bid for 011 or 015. Sorry, but if people cant control thier kids that shoot and sell drugs, thats thier fucking problem. Putting more police or making more beats wont solve those problems.

For a "world class" 911 system, you'd think the underlying policy of handling calls would be, at the very least, a little more logical with regard to manpower.

Former LAPD Chief Bill Gates quoted in his book "Chief" Chicago is the only Police Department that he knows of that sends a uniformed response to 95% of it's 911 Calls. Daley's prevailing thought has always been if the called the Police, no matter how arcane or ridiculous send the Police.
It's 2009 & we STILL Handwrite reports? That sums up this state of the art Department.

Im a cop that lives on west side of 008. Recently had an attempt burglary to my house. My son came home from school and found back door knob broke off and patio door window shattered. also garage lock broken off. My neighbor heard the noise and the 2 male hispanics took off. I was called at work and then I called 911. Told them Im on duty cop heading home that someone was breaking into my house. I t took the dispatcher 43 minutes to even dispatch the job of a burglary in progress to a cops house.(back log or not dispatcher could have at least put the call on the air). It finally came out and only took the 1 responding car about 2 minutes to get there. I do understand the backlog issue but I got the call, drove home from work and still waited at the house for 20 more minutes for troops to arrive. No fault of the 008 dist beat cops, Im here to thank you for coming once called in a timely manner. Don't know if you read the blog but I also want to thank Bt. 812 2nd watch (Name K.C. not sure of spelling) for keeping an eye on my house for the following week. My family and neighbors did notice you out there stopping and questioning anyone near my house(even my son was stopped). Your work is much appreciated on the west end of 008. Keep up the good work. Signed a much appreciative cop

i recently ran the p.o. title code on clear... their are only bout 9800 officers w/that code.... 13,500-9800=3700 missing :( how sad...

4/18/2009 12:02:00 AM

If thats the case then we are not all that short. Figure roughly 1200 Sgts, 900 dicks, 250 Lts & 75Capts. That leaves about 1300 short
but then you have maybe 100 exempts
plus all the other title codes like FTO, ET, Canine,etc etc which will fill a good portion of whats left.

The problem is we have a bunch on medical, at call back and then the districts have been stripped to form all sorts of special units that can be moved around the city so that we have unofficial manpower realighnment without the political problem of really realining the districts and beats.

Check out the number of checks cut on payroll days. The number is under 10,000. Freedom of Information Act can be used to find this information out, instead of using it to look into divorces of people running for elected office.

004 is already called "West Hammond"!

p.s. Hammond has more units up on ANY day than 004.

p.p.s. Even little Whiting (surrounded by Hammond) has at least 3units up 24/7, and their town is smaller than 1 beat in 004.

If you need police, call N/W Indiana!

13,500...That number represents ALL SWORN members. That’s 1- Superintendent, 3 Assistant Superintendents….Deputies,… Commanders… Lt’s Sgts… Det’s…P/O’s… Not 13,500 PATROLMAN!
And if you believe the CLEAR system is telling you the truth, I’ve got some ocean front property in Kansas to sell you. You want a more accurate number, find out how many uniform or duty avail. checks are cut from the comptrollers office.

Conspiracy theory abounds! Do you really think that if the department was adding people to I-Clear that it could be done without anyone finding out and letting the media know? They would have to be assigned to a unit and people in the unit would figure it out. Someone who does input would drop a dime. No matter what is said, someone is going to challenge it and call the dept a liar. Get over it. There are about 13,000 total SWORN, bosses included. They are just not in patrol, but in all of these great units that the bosses have made up. But go on believing that everything is a lie. You can spend the rest of your life fighting, whining and crying instead of making the best of what you have. Look around. Life is a lot harder for a whole lot of people out there. Instead of getiing good at your job, you blame all your ills on j-fed, shortshanks, and anybody else you can. Get out a general order or two, learn how you do your job better and maybe you too can get out of patrol. Try getting a job in the real world. Your lazy crybaby ass would be fired in a month because everyone is out to screw you and we know you don't do shit on this job. We are tired of hearing your simple minded bullshit so go back to your comic books. It will help you maintain your Mensa membership. You do know what that is, don't you?

i work in 008 and can tell u the west end will get worse if we don't start either, getting more police, like rapid response cars, [nonexistent] or getting police to come work where they live, the ghetto is more important than where your family lives? were never going to get more police out of daley or get the districts realigned, nobody has the balls to step up.

Hey Dufus, they have to have openings first before you can just show up to work in 008. Stupid ass!!!!!!

This type of bullshit happens day in and day out. These irresponsible people could care less that 911 is for an EMERGENCY. They will just make up "a man with a gun" so police arrive there faster...

They pull the same shit on CFD also, claiming chest pains when all they have is a yeast infection and want free meds from the ER...

There is one common factor in all the BS CPD and CFD calls.

4/18/2009 09:11:00 AM

Here's another. If you call 311 on the landline as citizens are advised to for non-emergency services, the 311 call taker very, very often switches the call to 911 -- who just takes the call instead of bouncing the caller back and forth any more.

Gives you that standing-there-holding-your-dick feeling..."Well, Jeez, I tried to co-operate but they wouldn't let me."

UUUUMMMM, Mr. Super cop, it’s me, “Conspiracy Theory” Cop. Not that I feel I need to post a resume for you, but in the past 19 years, starting in the “Wood”, I have been out of patrol, and no, not to “Summer Mobil” or “Preventive Programs”. I went “’Round the clock” a few times. I own and have used a “Kel” Light. The plates on one of my work cars came back to somewhere on Normal. After studying a little, I found myself just a few out of the top 100 on a Dic’s test. Hell, I still don’t know what would have happened if I took Gang Specialist, there’s what, 3 of them left? After a few more years, and getting in studying, again, somewhere between court, spending some time watching my kids grow up and a shit load of work and fun on the Violent Crime side, I scored well enough to now be found with (Usually, but not limited to) a -20 on the top of my car.

Work? Yes, I have worked on this job. There are a TON of Cops out there that worked more than me, but I am willing to bet YOU AINT ON THAT LIST! Please, you condescending, empty holstered, little fuck, point out where in my post I was “…whining and crying instead of making the best of what you have.” Or “Instead of getiing good at your job, you blame all your ills on j-fed, shortshanks, and anybody else you can”? Or just point out simply where I was “Crying”, pointing out how “My/Our” life was any better than any one else?

As far as your comment of “Getting a job in the real world”… Well, mother fucker, since your on this blog, I’m willing to bet your not a media troll, or some 14 year old want-to-be with a couple of bucks heading towards Atlas. So I see your “Real World Experience” in the job market is doing just stellar! Oh, I’m willing to bet AMC is just busting the door to your house down. As a matter of fact, they might just be doing that now. Should we leave a post-it note on your door telling them you’re too busy for one of their colloquiums ‘cause you’re “working it” in an alley somewhere on west Madison? Or are you going to show up in your usual drag; fishnets and a phallus dangling out of your cavernous jib?

Please do us a few favors; tell your wife to get a boyfriend & a good lawyer, give her custody. Prozac, Lithium, a good shrink! Start reading comic books, the rudimentary comprehension might be good for you, less shit you can twist and miss-construe into some hate and anger filled rant. Quit, yes, drop that PAR form! No one wants to work with some delusional prick like you, then tell us, oh great master of everything, just how the good old “Real World” is treating you. Until then, try masturbating (Yourself, not others), it might just release some of that pent-up frustration that seems to plague you.

P.S. Have a nice day! :-)

There is, I believe, a total of 278 Beats. Let's say that a little over one-third of those are prone to being -ahem- in radio-assignments-pending status. So the problem is approximately 100 Beats. Hire 1000 (or 800) more coppers and double the presence on these problem beats ---for example have a 722-A and a 722-B rather than expand beats that are already too big to split the problem beats. No new maps/ no additional beat meetings/ no connected firm to conduct feasibility study on what beats to create, etc. So simple even a caveman could do it.
