Recruits Ticketing?

What's the deal with this?

Supposedly, the Academy took a bunch of recruits out and had them writing meter tickets this past week.

First up, it took a separate City Ordinance to authorize CTA Supervisors, Streets and Sanitation Supervisors, TMA's and PEAs to be able to write tickets. Did we miss something that permitted unsworn unarmed recruits to be able to write parking tickets?

Second, if this is supposed to be some sort of new mandated training, welcome to the future of the Chicago Police Department. You aren't the Police anymore - you are revenue agents, ticketing to feed the Machine. We imagine that the new kids will come out with a quota attached to their daily grading system and FTO's city wide (oops, we mean in 6 training districts) will be required to fail the recruits if they don't write at least their salary plus in parkers per day.

Maybe the City hopes to develop it into a habit - a mindless horde of revenue generators:
  • Old Vet: See that guy in the long jacket? Hanging around outside the Dollar Store? He keeps looking in the window and around the corner and it's 85 degrees out. That strike you as suspicious kid?
  • Newbie: Holy crap! Look at that car parked 12 inches from the curb with the cracked windshield! And that other car is protruding 6 inches into the "No Parking" zone delineated by signs! And oh my lord! Two fire hydrant violations, one with a hanging front plate! I think I'm in heaven - I need some oxygen!
Welcome to the future.

ANY body can be issued a parking ticket book in this city. Loop tow truck drivers had them back in 1995.

From a ten year vet (have a PC to prove it)

Old vet: Look at that guy standing around, doing nothing, not committing any crime... lets stop him, talk down to him, make him feel small, berate him some, and ask him some intrusive questions... He doesnt want to answer my questions (his constitutional RIGHT--as he is not doing anything wrong) lets smack him around a bit, violate his rights, get a little heavy handed, and come to find out he was just waiting for his mom to get off of work to give her a ride home.

New Guy: Why are we bothering this guy? Ok, maybe he is a LITTLE suspiciouos... lets do some police work, watch him for a bit, see that he is not really doing anything wrong, see him walk off with mom, and completely avoid an ugly situation!


I have been on this job for 10 years, so I am by no means a new guy... Lets not act, SCC, like the old school way of policing is without its flaws...

I understand we shouldnt groom our newbies to be revenue guys, but lets not turn a blind eye to the fact that old school policing is not without flaws! We can agree that stereotypes dont form without reason... well, our old timers are not without stereotypes too!

We cannot say that the 1975 way of policing is the way to work in 2009... We need to find an in between, and to say the old school way is the way it needs to be is ignorant. I know it's easier from our side, but it's not 1975... Please stop embracing the "if you're educated you arent the police" mantra... or "if you have less than 25 years on you have no clue" mantra... We definitely get a bad rap in the media, and have no leadership... But to say we shouldnt leave behind our old ways is ignorant! We need to move on! As a department, we need to move on! The old way of thinking, the old way of training is what has gotten us in this predicament... We need to realize that change is good... Change is not scary, or bad, but rather something to be embraced... Like it or not this is a different time, and this is a different department... "use your feet get beat" just doesnt fly anymore... We need to realize, recognize, and accept that these are different times, and we are a different department... God bless the new CPD

If the opportunity ever presents itself where I observe a recruit writing a parker on my car, I (being a sworn officer able to lawfully give an order to a CIVILIAN) will simply order him or her to cease their actions. I will cite some obscure, made-up-on-the-scene exemption to the violation for which I'm being targeted.

Any objections on the recruit's part, whether verbal or otherwise, will be met with my order for said recruit to "drop and give me twenty!".

And since recruits on probation are disposable, I don't anticipate any problems with compliance.

Recruits are sworn in on their first day of the academy.
It was an exercise/class that was sent out to write parkers.
They were sent out into the doc.
They didn't find much.

I think that if this becomes a regular class (appearing every week or so and in a higher incident area) then I would say revenue generating.

I beleive that each recruit wrote one parker each.

The recruits wrote the tickets, the P/O's that went with them signed them. 50 tickets. The mayor's office actually wanted to know how much revenue the 50 tickets brought in. Better they practice ticket writing then passing out packets for the Shamrock Shuffle, helping with the run to remember, and looking for Bear the missing police dog. At this rate, they will never graduate.

I've been saying this for a while. If the average citizen starts to view the police as revenue agents instead of protectors then it's going to get ugly very quickly. A friend of mine recently got a speeding ticket in the western suburbs for doing 24 in a 20 (not a school zone. Pissed off doesn't come close to how he feels about the jagoff who wrote him up.

What the citizens of Chicago dont get is that Daley doesnt give a fuck about what you think. The little prick even puts it out there right in your face, he calls it THE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE!!!! Thats rights its printed on all their vehicles. REVENUE is the key word,its not hidden and it basically tells you that they are in the business of generating REVENUE. Other Cities call it Parking Authority, Parking Enforement, or Traffic Unit. Either way they generate $$$$$ for the city but for this prick to call department of REVENUE really tells us that traffic safety and enforcement is not his number one priority. You Dumbocrats keep voting for him, LOL!!!

How about this ?

When payment is made for the City Vehicle License, each citizen will be issued a book of parkers that they can write by their house, on cars blocking their driveway, garage or crosswalk, or parked on the nearest fire hydrant, or even without the proper neighborhood parking permit.

Now Shortshanks will be able to get his revenue stream up to where he wants it. After all, how many of these people wouldn't jump at the chance to screw over their neighbor by writing them a parking ticket, especially when they deserve one.

Of course, they will need to hire more police officers since the number of stabbings, shootings and homicides will go up as a result!!!

The CPD has been the dept of revenue with guns ever since the office of accountability was created.

When I first came on the job the 1st watch WC didn't want any activity. The WC was old and on his way out the door. The only thing he cared about was officers backing each other up on jobs. He wanted at least two cars riding on every job unless it was a parker or traffic crash. The old man didn't want to sign arrest reports unless the complaints were signed by a civilian. The 1st watch had two wagons, a traffic car, 3 rapid response cars, all beat cars up and two maned, and 2 or 3 plain closed cars. I don't work in that district anymore but I know they don't have half of what we had back then.

Think about this. The watch regularly downs rapids, park cars, wagons, and everything other than the parking ticket car and traffic (ticket writers) cars. The city only cares about revenue.

Should one of us get hurt, shot, or even killed they city and bosses wouldn't care at all!!!! Not a tear would be shed. The Mayor and alderthieves would see one of our deaths as a chance to advance their liberal anti police agenda.

To change a Ronald Reagan quote just a little bit "every time you write a parker and most movers you are not solving the problem you are part of the problem." No matter how many movers and parkers you write its not going to change a thing. The city will soon allow all city employees to write parkers to increase revenue, period!!!! The days of old are long gone. The police have no power anymore. The police are cog in the wheel that the mayor would love to replace with security guards. Don't ever forget that!!!!

# 1) The slowdown is working. Daley is desperately seeking revenue from anywhere he can find it. He can't hold out forever without seriously looking like a total asshole to everyone else on this planet.

# 2) Writing everyone helps the Stuttering Prick in 3 ways:

***It will bring in all of the revenue he needs in order to further ignore the police dept and our contract talks;

***It will further erode any salvageable relationship that exists between the police and a supportive public;

***It will continue to fund and feed the Daley Crime Family;

When we show up its ENTIRELY a different scenario.
Insofar as "not being the police if you are smart"

No, he isn't a coward you fucking idiot. He has it all right; we need to do our job according to what the law dictates.

If you stop someone then what is your legal basis for stopping them? Because if it turns out they have dope, a gun, a knife, a warrant, etc... then what are you going to write in your arrest report num nut? Are you going to say "A.O. observed the above offender looking at other cars"?

Also Mr. Brave Officer, just because you stop a car with four or six heads in the ghetto doesn't make you a tough guy. Nor does working in the ghetto makes you tough. After all, we have a radio and a gun. To all these tough acting P.O.'s, if you are tough, then go into the ghetto with out a radio and start acting tough.

WOW! 10 years? I bet you have to stop at the car wash before check off everyday just to have them vacuum all the old salt out of the interior.

If anything I have learned on this job is that at certain times you have to be an asshole or you won't get results. People are not afraid of the CPD anymore because they know that all they have to do is cry "excessive force" and the city will do anything they want.

The CAPS program was a mistake. It essentially was a pay off from Washington to "pussify" the police. Hell, last week we were told at role call that we HAVE to give a citizen a report no matter how ridiculous or outrageous the complaint is. Why? Because it will save the bosses from spending time doing paper work.

If you can't have the people respect you and the job you do then you better well have them fear you. Otherwise you will be wasting your time.

"use your feet get beat" just doesnt fly anymore... We need to realize, recognize, and accept that these are different times, and we are a different department... God bless the new CPD
-----------------------------------

My GOD! I really hope this was not written by a cop. If so, we are soooo screwed! What are they doing in the Academy.....giving recruits lobotomy's?

Get one thing straight; people will commit a crime when they fell that they have a good chance of getting away with it and if they are caught, nothing will happen to them. That is why we have laws and punishment. If some shit head knows that the police won't do anything to him he will become embolden to continue on his criminal path.

This stupid post illustrates a lot of what is wrong with too many of us. Where in the hell would you get the idea that just because you are the police you can LAWFULLY give any citizen an order and expect it to be obeyed?
-----------------------------------

OOOH! I heard this one on Jeopardy just the other day. The answer is "What is a Police Officer?"

Hey asshat, YES; a police officer CAN give ANYONE an order and expect it to be followed. As long as the order is within the scope of the law and the officer's sworn duty to up hold it they can give such an order.

You sound like that adlercreature Dixon who tried driving around marked police cars which were blocking the street because of a major fire. When told that she couldn't do that she became infuriated, demanding by what right do they have to tell her what to do?

My GOD, please let my 29 and a day get here post haste!

Also Mr. Brave Officer, just because you stop a car with four or six heads in the ghetto doesn't make you a tough guy. Nor does working in the ghetto makes you tough. After all, we have a radio and a gun. To all these tough acting P.O.'s, if you are tough, then go into the ghetto with out a radio and start acting tough.

I love a good pissing contest!

Sounds like a 5 year wonder on Tac. I'm shivering in my BVD's!

MY WAY: REGROUP AND RE HIT THEM UNTIL THE OBJECTIVE IS MET.

Pretty clear to me youre a clear candidate for a New Age White shirt the force that is driving CPD into the dirt.

EMBRACE THAT.

TAKE IT EASY FRANCIS!!! My god... this is not fucking beirut! No wonder we are in the news every fucking week with another heavy handed, bad attitude fucking idiot over stepping the bounds! Not every person that lives south of Madison or west of Western is carrying an AK47!!! How many innocent necks are you stepping on before you find the one guy that MAY be suspect??? YOU, sir, ARE whats wrong with this department!!! You need to get help! The problem is this department has WAAAYYYY too many of you! We do NOT need any more front page fuck ups, so PLEASE just relax... take a deep breath and stop thinking that any man woman or child of color is up to no good... You and yours really do need an attitude adjustment!!!

Just remember that Commander Ruth Wester is part of the 19th Ward Organization. And we all know who controls that operation - some may thing Tom Hynes - some may think its Tom Dart - some may think its GingerRugai - you would all be wrong. Shortshanks buddy Jerimiah Joyce runs things here. It was probably a good way for ole Ruthie to pay back her mentor.

You are really stretching it 7:25. Are you still pissed that you got a well deserved bitch slap by Wedster a few years back. You aren't long on this job anyway...

understand we shouldnt groom our newbies to be revenue guys, but lets not turn a blind eye to the fact that old school policing is not without flaws! We can agree that stereotypes dont form without reason... well, our old timers are not without stereotypes too!

I see guys like you everyday. You hide behind every rule you can think of. The truth is you've never been sued and you've never had a CR number. Your salty attitude hides your fear. You'd shit your pants before you'd stop stop a 4 deep ghetto ride. The truth is you are a coward.

As a father,brother and uncle of the police,I second this idea..The new breed police,get 0 respect,and that makes it that much tougher on the dont spit when I,walk by police.

I'm glad they helped look for the dog. Friends of mine not even PO's helped look for the dog. Dogs are better than people. When's the last time a dog shot someone?
