Right Hand, Meet Left Hand

Letters, we get letters:
  • SCC, you are going to loooooove this one.

    (XXX) District gets a letter today from Patrol Division wanting to know about a drop off in index numbers. They have a couple of days to respond. The numbers weren't down. They just weren't entered because the Officer who does stats was out of town.

    But the Officer comes back Thursday and guess what? Their spot has been eliminated! They're back out on the street and who knows when the stats will be entered now? If they were the vengeful type, they'd toss the whole pile of numbers in the garbage.
This is the second time we've heard of this and it points out a serious flaw in the ongoing reorganization. There are people downtown whose sole purpose is to generate useless reports to secure their own spots. And to demand an explanation of falling index numbers in the midst of eliminating the very spots that feed their useless statistical reports is truly ignorant. Whoever authored the report demanding that data ought to have their spot eliminated immediately.

While these efforts are a tiny step in the right direction (overstaffed offices and desks), they are missing where the most fat needs to be trimmed - HQ. And we doubt that even as one of the top five exempts in the Department, Dugan has any power to trim those spots.

Ace Reporter Phil Schitz's sources have their noses to the ground on this one. One source, who wished to remain anonymous said there is going to be some very SERIOUS problems this summer.

Looks like your bosses want the manpower out there before shit hits the fan.

They have more paper than they had 25 years ago. The computer age? Not with the chicago police department. Do you know why? Insecurity at the exempt level. None of them can ever say , " I did not know"--- NO ONE can know everything. What a joke.

Do they still have bus checks?

Stats - Stats - Stats ... Just go to the New and improved CAR meeting every Friday and see how STATS are being used. It's a Joke... "Cmdr: You have xx homicides and xx aggravated batteries in this time frame.. We know that your short xx on and the district was in a RAP every day" how are you moving your "resources" to combat your index crime increase ?"
Well, F##k your numbers on the board are wrong and don't have any one to enter activity not even a civilian, contact cards are being stacked in review and now it's the Tact secretary's job.
Aaahh wait... Does this mean data entry has an open time... Your Exempt meetings will be wonders without the NUMBERS!!!!!

This shit has been going on for a long time. The number crunchers just give the brass what they want to hear. It's amazing how dumb the brass really are. You would think they never wore a blue shirt. Just today I heard a secretary say to a girl she was training "just type these words and put in the numbers, that's what they want even if it never happened." I laughed to myself and just thought how sad this job has become. And they wonder why morale is gone.

The numbers weren't down. They just weren't entered because the Officer who does stats was out of town.

*********************************

This reminds me of a great story.

Many moons ago, there was a copper working as a dispatcher on a zone that will remain anonymous. This prince of a (wo)man would often meet with us after his/her watch to partake in adult beverages.

Prior to embibing in his/her first refreshment, this copper would hand one of us a stack of (literally) hundreds of jobs "to be disposed of" that s/he refused to dispatch because s/he knew they were nonsense. This is back before any type of automation when calltakers would physically write the job tickets out and hand them to the dispatchers who would then assign them to the beat cars.

Even with this selective elimination of bullshit jobs, we'd still have a dozen or more jobs stacked to us right out of the gate, scribbling addresses, descriptions, etc. on whatever paper you could find in the squad car. It was great getting to a job that was 2 or more hours old!

Fast forward twenty years or so: either the administration would be begging him/her to come back to the job to work his/her magic in "crime reduction" or they'd be charging him/her with official misconduct. Good times!

Damn, how I miss the (not too long ago) old days!! If this particular dispatcher reads this, I hope retirement is treating you well. I tip my glass of Chivas Regal to you as I prepare to embark on yet another tour through the Wild Kingdom tomorrow. I may even write some bananas...

Typical downtown fukstik mentality. Fuck you, your job is eliminated. Now go give me what I want anyway. Force someone ELSE to do the additional work of two or more officers.

Fuck these ignorant shitheads, they don't know SHIT about what's required of the personnel in district administrative positions to appease their pathetic bullshit paper mess and burning desire to constantly reinforce the "I outrank you" childish personality they ALL have.

The Area D/C ordered their commanders to cut at least one of the 5 contractually protected spots from CAPS. Not that the spot is guaranteed, but the bidding if filled is ignored.

But hey, guess what, SOMEBODY ELSE has to do their work on top of their OWN now. And no matter what most of you think, there are SEVERAL more jobs in a district CAPS office than the 5 officers assigned.

Damn, da job used to be so much fun. Locking up the bad guys and then, a couple of "in-service training" classes at the academy you could never forget.

In one, the instructor wanted to clue us in on the effects of cannabis. So the class fired up a few jays to pass around. I herein apologize for bogarting. I must say it was skunkweed. Bring on the good Hawaiian shit, bro.

Then there was the breathalyzer class for sergeants. The instructor told us at the noon break to bring back beer for a "test".

My old buddy from Fillmo', Leon Blair and I split a 12-pack. I forgot what we blew at the end.

I do remember we laughed our asses off. A shout-out to my brother Leon out there.

When I first came on the job in the early 80's the tact offices still had pin maps for the index crimes. The tact lt. got called on the carpet about, say, thefts from auto by a clout heavy cmdr. The tact lt. started to remove a pin a day instead of adding one and since the paper trails in those days were so loose, when he showed the cmdr. how the density of the pins was thinning he was lauded as the best crime fighter out there. Twenty some years later and the smoke and mirrors still occur on a daily basis.

Dear Anonymous:

You know, that sounds like a great idea! Two problems:

(1.) Ace Reporter Phil Schitz doesn't listen to dipshits! And you're one of them!

(2.) Generally, I write satire. You may not get it, like it, or undrstand it. Too bad. I still have the 1st Amendment until Obama-nation takes it away.

One other thing: When you see, "Phil Schitz here", it's pronounced "Phil shits here."

Now, regarding the manpower reassignments:
Listen up genius, the economy is going to hell. It's not going to recover in six months, it's not bottoming out early next year, it's nose-diving.

You're fucked. I'm Fucked. We're all fucked.

About a half-million people per month are losing their jobs. What the hell do you think they're going to do? Sit on their hands and watch while their homes are foreclosed? The hell they will! They're going to protest. Once they find that protesting doesn't work, they'll turn to violence. This "kid" knows what he's talking about. If you want to know what's coming your way from the east, look at Europe. The middle class is rioting. If you want to know what's coming from the west, take a gander at California. The state will file for bankruptcy and that means government pensions are gone along with a whole myriad of other problems. Do you think people are going to sit idledly by as this shit happens?

Downtown is scrambling for bodies; not only for the expected summer violence, but for the upcoming civil unrest. One of the big problems the bosses don't realize or remember is this: Back in the 1960's there was a ton of civil unrest. If I recall correctly, the Chicago Polce Department lost close to a dozen coppers a year. Back then, your profession was all male with height and weight requirements. Now you have a department with a shit-load of females. Nothing against females on the police department, but when it comes to major shit hitting the fan, do you want testosterone or estrogen battling next to you? you have less police officers today than you had in the sixites. Counting the females: You have a lot less. Once again, nothing against the females.

Think the rioting won't reach our shores because we're too civilized? Look at London, England. The middle-class is joining up with the disenchanted in protest. The first protest had incidents of civil disorder. The following protests will have gradually increasing violence. If you want to see what's going on, travel the world. Lots of shit going on that you won't see on the news unless you watch the BBC news.

So all this "kid" is going to tell you is this: Keep drinking your Kool-Aid and everything will be fine.

Phil

Does that mean I won't ever get merit stripes? You mean, if I ever become a sergeant it'll have to be off of a test that will surely be legit (when it's offered in 2015)?

OMG, what will I do?????

After all, I’m one of those certified “Expert Terrorists”, Mayor Daley said so! What are you? I used to be a fed, now everyone seems to just be FED-UP. What the fuck? Don’t people like you get it? I AM SOMEBODY, DAMNIT! I sold my soul so I can make important decisions like this.
