The Morale Survey

But this is Chicago...who counts the votes?
  • For months, Chicago police officers have been saying privately that morale at the department is at an all-time low. Now Supt. Jody Weis wants to see just how true that may be.

    The department launched an online survey of its members last week, hoping to determine how they feel about morale and stress on the job. The survey, conducted with the help of University of Illinois at Chicago researchers, is intended to examine how well pilot programs for alternative shifts are going but also give Weis a look at overall morale, said Bill Dougherty, first vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents rank-and-file officers.

    The survey, which includes more than 50 questions, asks department members about how their job affects time with their families, their satisfaction with the department and even whether they've considered working for other departments, Dougherty said.

    Department members have until mid-June to complete the online survey, and results are expected by the end of summer, police said.
And if, at the end of it all, morale is in the toilet, will J-Fed then resign as he publicly promised? If you have to enter your PC number, it's not as anonymous as everyone thinks. Years of Service and Unit? Might as well hand them a road map. Whatever. We did it already.

Watch the body language of Weis and Mayor Daley; It's obvious to Ace Reporter Phil Schitz that Weis will be out of the department by November. It's after the I.O.C. chooses its Olympic city.

This survey assumes that we all have access to our email. I bet more than half of officers don't or ever established a department email. Are there alternatives to taking the survey. if not the method for getting the survey out to the officers is severely flawed and so will the results.

My only regret with regard to taking the survey was that they didn't leave in an option to type in any further comments.
I would've liked to have spelled out in plain english how City Hall interference has brought this Dept. to its knees.

MORALE? How is it? Easy; go to the shitter in the basement of 004, the one past the "glory hole", look in the last stall, just past the crusted shit on the side of the bowl, thats where you can find our "Morale".

Judas Wies' new excuse will be "Well, its not because of ME, its because of 'bla, bla, bla', so I dont have to leave."

Jody, do us a favor, GO, please just GO. Take the rest of your pals with you! Hell, we'll even let you take Aunt Bea, Down-Town, Burger Queen and a few more with you. Dont let the door hit you on the ass, on the way out! You might get that fat wallet scratched up with that $930K in it. Oh, take the litter box and that fucking cat as well!

It's official, Chicago's Police Superintendent Jody Weis started a survey regarding morale on the police department. Earlier in the year, Weis promised to resign if he was the cause of low morale.

If the Chicago Machine can get dead people to vote, it seems likely this survey will be favorable to Weis.

What other job besides the military does one have the power to take the life of another. A major respondsibility and it happened several times last year and its just starting to heat up this year. Shooting s by police this year are already rising. We are fighting for a fair contract yet everyday the police go out and continue to do the job even though at anytime one of us could use the ultimate power of life and death. The rule has to be one would rather be tried by 12 than carried by six. But still what is the lasting effect of you actions even if your 100% right. Yea the city gives you a couple days of counseling and then your right back into the fire. Thank God most of us on the job will never have to be in this situation. But what about those who have been there? The ultimate respondsibility yet no fair contract ? Morale is down plain and simple. A survey is not necessary to see it!!!

I took the survey and have asked many at my unit if they plan on taking it. The answer I keep getting is along the line of “I’m not taking it that will show them what my morale is.”

This runs along the logic of, “I’m not voting because I’m pissed off at candidate xyz” Anyone who doesn’t take the survey has no more reason to bitch about anything on this job just as people who don’t have no basis to bitch about what the politicians do.

Not only is it all about your interpretation of the question, it is also about the question itself.

The question can be asked in a way to manipulate the answers.

The question asked should have been: DO YOU THINK "MERIT" PROMOTIONS IN THE DEPARTMENT ARE BASED ON MERIT?

I'd just love to get a look at this 50 item "survey". The item construction may reveal much about their actual motives. How can retirees get a verbatim look?

You've got to be delusional to participate with your employee number or other identifiers. The City can NEVER be trusted.

If they were sincere, they'd do it via FOP with foolproof security, unbiased monitors and a secret double envelope mail-in ballot.

What's to stop Shortshanks, J-Fed and his clout babies from stuffing the survey with unused numbers at the eleventh hour before the deadline?

I took the survey. My assessment is that this survey is very basic and doesn't address the police sub culture. The police department is, please allow me to emphasize this point, CPD IS A PARA-MILITARY organization......
You have to address those specific questions. But in the Military, leadership begins at the lowest level where, in some cases, as early as 17 years of age.

Now please Sgt, LT, Capt, and above....Yes some of you are by far the best leaders I have been privileged to work for, but as an institution. CPD has no sound leadership development program. Taking a test doesn't make you a leader. Leadership is the building block to success in any organization.

There are many stories out there of strange people with stripes or bars who have no clue what being a leader is all about.

This is why we are in this predicament. I hope some one of influence is reading this....

As I served this department and my military service, I have an understanding of leadership.

Sgt.... LT..... Look in the mirror and ask your self, "am I a good leader" ........

What an honor it is to serve men and women in such a challenging environment. Don't you want to provide us officers with sound judgements, guidance and "spirit de corps"....

As a Chicago Police Officer, who will only follow a good leader, Remember if you cross a fellow man, well than you will have to answer to fate.....

It is possible you are correct.

It is also possible that Shortshanks' brother's son-in-law's cousin is getting paid 6 figures to develop "The Morale Survey" for UIC, and has manipulated the wording of every question so that the results of the survey are exactly what benefits the Daley Crime Family the most.

Off Topic, but morale related:

While it's tradition for the World Series Champions to visit the White House each year there is also another tradition that happens in Washington, DC every May 15th. It is known as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and was signed into law on October 1, 1962 by President John F. Kennedy. That is the day that a ceremony is held at the United States Capitol to honor all law enforcement officers who made the Supreme Sacrifice the previous year. Historically, the President of the United States is the keynote speaker and welcomes the survivors as each officer's name is announced and the family places a flower in the FOP wreath in honor of their loved one.

The husbands, wives and children of the 134 officers killed last year in the Line of Duty were not the only family members who came to the ceremony. Their mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers also came to the Capitol to honor their hero. Also, the officers that served with them were in attendance. So there they were, almost 1,000 police survivors from every corner of the country, seated on the West Lawn of the Capitol waiting to be welcomed by the President only to find that he was unable to attend due to a photo opportunity and a 10 minute speech to a baseball team.

It's not the Phillies fault that the President of the United States was busy welcoming them to the Rose Garden, they deserved that, but if it was known that the Law Enforcement Memorial Service was scheduled for noon on May 15th I'm sure an adjustment would have been made to accommodate both.

My question is how do you tell a child whose parent was killed protecting his community, that the President would not be coming to honor his mom or dad because even though he was just down the street he was too busy taking a picture with a baseball team. The City of Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley and our country has seen way too many officers killed in the Line of Duty. FYI...there are 18,661 names on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, and one horrible fact remains. Every 53 hours a Police Officer is killed in the Line of Duty.

At every funeral you see the outpouring of grief and sympathy from our citizens. There are fund raisers at Geno's, Finnegan's Wake, the FOP and numerous establishments around the city to support the officer's family. We as Police Officers cannot thank the citizens enough for their kindness, generosity and support, but the men and women who were in DC for Police Week are reeling from the President's decision not to pay his respects by attending the memorial service but instead chose to welcome a baseball team to the Rose Garden. There is no comparison. There is no excuse. There is no justification. I don't understand his reasoning....go pay my respects to 134 Police Officers killed in the Line of Duty or take a picture with a baseball team.
THIS IS NOTHING BUT AN INSULT!!!

The chip on his shoulder would not allow him to lower himself to the level of us lowly copper's. This guy is a straight up jag-off!
Daley, it is time to suck it up and admit that you made a mistake and picked the wrong guy for the job. We all know that you gave J-Fed the job in exchange for something (Olympics? Feds off your back? $$$?). Well just give J-Fed the rest of his guarenteed money and let him go. Then promote a boss from within, preferebly Dugan, get us a decent contract, and all will be well. Arrest numbers will go back up, ticket revenue will skyrocket, and homicides will plummet. And you will still get the Olympics. Morale will be back to where it should be and we will all stop bitching. Although I know some dog ass coppers that would still bitch even if they made a million dollars a year with a 100% pension and 20 and out.

Weis knew he was in for some bad times ahead before he took job just by all the bad blood between FEDS and CPD in the first place, but nothing a $300,000.00 a year salary couldn't fix!

I believe everone on the department has an email even though most have not activated it yet. All you have to do is go to the login screen. Type in your PC# and under password for the first time use NewUser1 After you have logged in, you can change the password to whatever you like. So far everyone I know has been successful. From then on, you will have as your email firstname.lastname@chicagopolice.org You will also have access to it from home if you wish at https://webmail.chicagopolice.org/exchweb/bin/auth/owalogon.asp?url=https://webmail.chicagopolice.org/exchange&reason=0&replaceCurrent=1

And if they dont answer the way their bosses tell them, they dont have their cush spot anymore, Keep this up for awhile SCC, spread the word so the REAL coppers take the time to do this survey. Who cares about pc # what the fuck are they going to do? Fire all 10k of us for saying the job and bosses suck? TAKE THIS SURVEY, show that jfed fucking clown that we cannot stand him or his fucked up department

The ignorance of the person who wrote the questions for this 'study' shines brightly in the question about promotions.

To lump 'merit' promotions together with promotions from a relatively honest exam in one question about promotions is testimony to the question writer's extreme indifference as to the quality of her results.

just remember supervisor is not just sgt,lt.or watch commander but supervisors refer to poeple at the top also. so while most of us have no problem with our immeditate supervisors,feel free to tell how you feel about the upper staff of this department in this survey when thay ask you how you feel about supervisors.jody is a rat and probably worded is that way so when all the surveys say we like our supervisors(refering to immeditate supervisors on the street), jody will take that as we support him and nothing is wrong with him or his staff.

Lieutenants and above are Command Members. Sergeants are the only Supervisors. Now that was the Department before the FED got here. He might have changed it.

Nothing beats a good survey these days. Its cheap and gives you something to do at work. Since I've exhausted every red box in all of area 4 I figure what have I got to lose. And the wagon guy on days gave me to answers in advance. I figure if its from UIC then it must be good. The tuition is high enough to make it reputable, right? I logged in with my desk sgts P.C.# and took the survey. I'm curious, how did some of you fella's answer the question about if you still beat your wife? I chose some what disagree. Then there was the one that asked if you were on a bus with the kessing bandit do you stay on or get off? I'm not sure what this has to do with morale, but I hope my answers help.

I took the survey and answered every question. Put my PC# with no second thought. If I learned one thing, no matter what I also have freedom of speech on how I feel about this job. They start screwing me for my views, I also have 1st amendment rights. I have written many Editorials about this job and the politics in the city without any repurcussions. I wish they would try to stick it to me. I have a very good lawyer who hates the city politics. They can't fuck you for the way you feel about the department. That's why I was at the City Hall march. What they going to do to me. The brass may be asinine, but they are smarter than screwing with someone for their views, as long as you stay within guidelines and don't divulge any information that is protected by department order. We still have a right to free speech as with every other citizen.

I agree totally with this poster!
First of all, nicely written with the facts included.
It has been over 10 years in a row that I participated in the DC Memorial, like yourself, on my own time and my own dime.
But I was not alone again this year. There was over THREE-HUNDRED (300)!! Chicago Police Officers there in full uniform, honoring our fallen.
Thank you to all that attended and/or were there in spirit. (EVERY member should do it at least once in their career)
And yes, BOTH the President and vice-president were absent from this years' memorial.
What a slap in the chops.

May God bless all of our 134 brothers and sisters that we honored this year.

This is one of the highlights in my tenured career to be among, "Chicago's Finest" saluting those that made the "Ultimate Sacrifice."

Thanks again to the author of the above noted post and to ALL my brothers and sisters, 'on da' job.'

Type in your PC# and under password for the first time use NewUser1 After you have logged in, you can change the password to whatever you like. So far everyone I know has been successful. From then on, you will have as your email firstname.lastname@chicagopolice.org You will also have access to it from home if you wish at https://webmail.chicagopolice.org/exchweb/bin/auth/owalogon.asp?url=https://webmail.chicagopolice.org/exchange&reason=0&replaceCurrent=1

..."My question is how do you tell a child whose parent was killed protecting his community, that the President would not be coming to honor his mom or dad because even though he was just down the street he was too busy taking a picture with a baseball team."...


As I concur with your, and many of our brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement outrage, WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU EXPECT? This liberal piece of shit is friends with William Ayers, Look him up on a search engine, and see what you’ll find out about him and the Weather Underground. Afterwards, look up the accepted definition of “Terrorist”; see if you find any similarities.

I have had the unfortunate incident to work in Hyde Park, and around, then, Senator Barry “Jug-ears” Obama. They look at Law Enforcement as a necessary evil, brutal, gun toting, ignorant and far too “Right Wing”. Were we the ones that kicked their ass at Grant Park, circa ’68? Oh hell yes! The only way to get “Don’t throw bags of piss & shit at the Police” through their thick skulls was with a Night-Stick. Now, all of those long-haired, dope-smoking, law-breaking, hippy, non-showering, useless fucks happen to be, directly, and indirectly, running the country.

So, in conclusion, for the next 3 Years, 6 Months(ish), If you think we, Law Enforcement, or the Military, will get top billing over some fucking baseball team, your nuts! However, we, Law Enforcement, the Military, and our families, need to make sure this “Change you can believe in” ends 3 Years, 6 Months(ish) from now!

P.S. I know and understand how important spending quality time with the family is. I try to do it as much as possible. However, there are some commitments that I see fit to go to. Causes that I feel are important enough to take time away from my family. For instance: St. Jude. Talk about a noble cause, honoring our fallen brothers and sisters whose lives were given in protection of our city. One can almost walk from, let’s say, 13th-14th & Indiana, Prairie area. Maybe, at the most, 2 hours out of one Sunday a year. HHHMMMMM, You think you’ll EVER see Lil’ Dick at our parade? See anymore similarities between Lil’ Dick and Barry O?

Many will not do the survey in fear of the department back stabbing. One of the reasons morale has been crushed is we have no trust in the department after the many years of "changing the rules in the middle of the game" and different rules for "special folks"

They could have had an anonymous survey, but for "some reason" they chose not to. They don't need a fucking survey to know that morale is so low. It's been as plain as day for a few years now. I thought the brass were supposed to be so smart and know what's going on in the districts. I don't trust them, PERIOD!!!

"I took the survey and have asked many at my unit if they plan on taking it. The answer I keep getting is along the line of “I’m not taking it that will show them what my morale is.”

This runs along the logic of, “I’m not voting because I’m pissed off at candidate xyz” Anyone who doesn’t take the survey has no more reason to bitch about anything on this job just as people who don’t have no basis to bitch about what the politicians do.

5/18/2009 08:30:00 AM"


Does it, now?

Well, lets see:


1. When you vote, 'they' don't know who you voted for, they don't even know if you voted, just that you showed up and took a ballot into the voting booth.

2. Therefore, those who don't vote on election day may very well be wasting an opportunity to vote for someone other than the candidate they are 'pissed off at', but they're not exposing themselves to retaliation, and, in fact, are doing just what the idiots they're 'pissed off at' want them to do, ie., not cast a vote for the idiots' opponent(s).

3. So, your attempt at comparing apples and oranges is found to be an invalid comparison, as invalid and asinine as the survey you're touting.


Thus, your logic is shown to be flawed, as one might expect from someone who's got his head stuck way up into an anus, either your own or your chinaman's.

Let's sum this up...

We live in a city in which almost every "anointed/appointed" politician lies, cheats and steals but they somehow are exempt from any raise or promotion restrictions AND receive the media NO QUESTIONS ASKED award.

We live in a city where our department receives gobs of money in grant funds, but those funds are reserved by "anointed/appointed" "VENDORS" that re-order what units have already ordered, but receive a nice hefty commission for placing a phone call AND again NO QUESTIONS ASKED

We try to scratch out a living, do our job despite morale, have "peaceful" demonstrations to show our employer, the Mayor, and City Council how we truly feel and all our members get is a lousy "anonymous" survey to gauge how our lives are...

What a joke. If this is the best Weis, the Mayor, City Council or some glorified cousin-who-needed-a-job idiot could come up with then we should push the reset button on the Chicago Administration gene pool and start over.

G-D Bless, be safe and remember to vote these neanderthals out.

It's official, Chicago's Police Superintendent Jody Weis started a survey regarding morale on the police department. Earlier in the year, Weis promised to resign if he was the cause of low morale.

If the Chicago Machine can get dead people to vote, it seems likely this survey will be favorable to Weis.

ot---just a question...why is it that if my brother cousin or friend borrows my car and gets a parking ticket or gets caught by a redlight camera, i, the REGISTERED OWNER of the vehicle is responsible for the ticket???? but if we, as police officers, get a ticket in a squad car that is REGISTERED to the city, then why dont they pay the ticket?

1. When you vote, 'they' don't know who you voted for, they don't even know if you voted, just that you showed up and took a ballot into the voting booth.

2. Therefore, those who don't vote on election day may very well be wasting an opportunity to vote for someone other than the candidate they are 'pissed off at', but they're not exposing themselves to retaliation, and, in fact, are doing just what the idiots they're 'pissed off at' want them to do, ie., not cast a vote for the idiots' opponent(s).

3. So, your attempt at comparing apples and oranges is found to be an invalid comparison, as invalid and asinine as the survey you're touting.


Thus, your logic is shown to be flawed, as one might expect from someone who's got his head stuck way up into an anus, either your own or your chinaman's.


Thanks for contributing your sincere opinion.

Did you ever wonder why your ballot was numbered?

Don't know who you voted for? LOL!!!!

Next you are going to tell us there are working police officers in 019... And then, they don't write family members. LOL!!

I know this because I have an uncle who is a high ranking member of the city government who told me years ago there is ALWAYS a list in matters like this. If your smart, don't take the survey.

I know one of the researches responsible for conducting this survey. He's an upstanding professor with direct knowledge (having studied Chicago police for while) of the department's low morale.

Now, I'm not a police officer and I don't know what this survey entails, but I do know he isn't a puppet for Weis; if anyone is worried about that.

What they'll do is analyze the figures, once collected, and questions that result in a high percentage of low morale/low confidence will be further studied. It's up to you CPD to get the word out of this survey. This is only a preliminary step.

Everyone's pc number is listed in the alpha query. I simply grabbed someone else's number and completed the survey. They have no way of telling who actually completed the survey, just that a valid pc number was submitted.
