Fifty New Cops!

  • Twenty-one Illinois law enforcement agencies, including Chicago and numerous suburban departments, will receive nearly $26 million in federal stimulus money to hire or rehire 106 police officers.

    The money is part of $1 billion in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds that will help pay the salaries and benefits of 4,699 police officers nationwide. Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder today announced the money would be distributed among 1,046 agencies throughout the country.

    The city of Chicago is slated to receive more than $13 million for 50 entry-level police officers. Calumet City will get more than $1 million for five officers.

That will cover the retirements from March of two years ago! We can't wait to meet these new highly trained officers in another year or so. By which point we should be another thousand or so officers short.

Color us underwhelmed.

ok so we're getting 50. rather miniscule but at least it's something..for now...the question is how quickly they can get the ball rolling here. get those recruits in there, so they can get on the streets asap...how long do we think it'll take for the money to flow, and the academy class to start? the way this city is, who knows.

50? Holy fuck, we’re saved! Is this in addition to what “J-fraud” promised us?

• Chicago Police officials are hoping to hire up to 150 officers this year with federal grant money, Supt. Jody Weis said Tuesday.
In the meantime, Weis is putting about 300 additional officers on the street this summer by shifting them from desk jobs or paying overtime with federal grants.
From an SCC article last month.

Can someone please, just please verify (as in cold hard PROOF!) how many Duty availability or Shift checks were cut? That’s a decent way to accurately count how many SWORN we actually have. Maybe one of these days we can figure out where our budget is actually going!

So does this mean another test soon? I don't know how many officers the CPD is down but I have seen guestimates on this blog from 700-6000. My question is when will they test? I have been waiting almost 3 years. I am sick of waiting and I want to get on. Somehow I have a feeling that the money will end up in the Daley clan coffers and after being set aside for the Olympics.

God Bless the CPD and nobody else?

How does 13 million equate to 50 officers????

7/29/2009 01:21:00 AM

I think it was stated that this will cover at a minimum, 3 years of pay. With that said your looking at:
$260,000.00 per person
-$43,104.00 first year
-$57,396.00 average of second year
-$58,896.00 third year
-$58,896.00 fourth year

leaving $41,708 left over. take out duty avail/uniform from that for 4 years ($18,880) and you have $22,828 left over.

$22,828 x 50 = $1,141,400.00 or approximatly 3 years of pay for a Sup. at $380,466.00 a year.

...wait a minute...

The federal grant is a multi-years program. We get a certain amount each year for the new guy. Usually with these grants we get the training and 100% of the salary the first year, than it goes down the next year.
Seeing how Daley is getting money for police offciers he didn't hire when he promised, its a real good deal for him.
Can anyone downtown tell us how much money we turned back or didn't get from grants due to the confusion J-Deds people? I know its in the millions.

If your daddy or uncle ( alderman ) told you to take this job 'cause you'll get a fluff job after graduating from the academy F-U !!!

If you take take this job to make a difference in the everyday lives of chicago citizens. I commend you but caution words I will also state, that for every 10 hard working officer who goes about his career doing a job to the best of his/her abilities their is a political hack ie; son/daughter/nephew whatever will always get ahead of you in duty selection ( narcotics, specialized units ) and PROMOTIONS !!

This is the reality of modern day law enforcement IN the city of big shoulders. If you come on this job knowing that you may never get promoted and have to work for members in positions of leadership with no skills to lead us or desire to do so.

To the posts wondering if and when the city will have a new test for officers: God Bless you but you really should know that the situation in this department, and city for that matter, are so F.U.B.A.R. that if I were you I'd seriously reconsider. I'm on my downward slope with light at the end of the tunnel visible but I would never consider coming on this department now. J-Fed and King Ritchie have fucked this thing up so bad it will take a long time and a concerted effort to recover. With their checkered past history I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.
J-Fed will take the money and run after his contract is up in the not too distant future and Ritchie will not run again if he doesn't get his cherished Olympics. They'll simply walk away leaving the city and this department in virtual ruins.

Math again!


50 new cops divided by 25 district divided by three shifts = .66 officers per watch.....but if you dived that by 7 day off groups and take 5/7 of that it equals .48 police per shift per day....unless you're in a ten hour a day district...than three day off groups are off each day so it winds up 4/7 =.38 police officer per shift.

So that granted us someone to relieve us for our lunches?

Ryan can march in a parade and talk a good game and he may participate in the north side parade, but WTF?

Why take the police out of the Districts just to redeploy them? Leave them in their Districts where they can do real police work every day, not just every deployment dat they are there. Hit or miss teams are all that they are. Gang arrests are down 60% and every major shooting that has occured, TRU was assigned to that area and had no impact what so ever.

Let go of the idea that the Obama administration gave a drop in the bucket, why has the daley administration not hired? Why have our property taxes risen and our community services deminished, i.e. having enough police to patrol all of our neighborhoods? Why do so many people keep reelecting the same machine politicians who are beholden to daley? Our city deserves better, our neighborhoods should say thanks federal gov't for the handout but why has our local government failed us? When will you all wake up, the enemy is in front of all of us, and yet we critize and tear apart everyone else but the main puppetmaster i.e. shortshanks/aldermen.

Fraternal Order of Police Chicago Lodge #7
Current Update
Wednesday, July 29, 2009 

CONTRACT ARBITRATION DEMAND  07/29/09
Early this afternoon a notification was hand-delivered to our offices informing us that the City of Chicago has initiated the impasse resolution procedure set forth in Section 28.3 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. What this means is that our contract will be going to Arbitration. Obviously the issue at which we are the furthest apart is wages, and generally, our history shows us that the Lodge fairs well when an outside party determines our wage scale. We have no reason to think we will not have the same experience this time.

The next steps here will be to agree to who the arbitrator will be and what issues and terms we will advocate. The work that we have done in negotiations over the last two years will serve us well as we present our proposals to the Arbitrator.

The 55 and out with health insurance is unaffected by this development. Officers should be able to fill out their PAR forms electronically after August 1 to take advantage of this hard fought benefit.

If you seriously want to put it in:
1)Call a friend and get info for what they want on the application.
2)Type it out and email, fax, or ecpress mail it to your buddy.
3) Have your buddy bring it down to where it needs to go.

Had our current contract been ratified 26 months ago when the economy was still bullish, we ALL would have something big to show for it. Now, we will be guarenteed SHIT for a raise, retro, and benefits other than the small bone Daley has throne those approaching 55 yrs. Thank you FOP for your empty promise.

Here is ANOTHER MORON . .
READ the below post STUPID . . .

”Arbitrator Edwin Benn has come right out and said that NO POLICE OR FIRE UNION will come out ahead in arbitration financially because of the economy. In many ways it would be best to just wait out the economy even if it takes 2 or 3 more years.”

You are another "5 year wonder idiot without a clue ". You have no idea what contract negotiations are like with FIRE or POLICE unions. We are NOT the fucking Chicago Public School Teachers Union in that they have the right to STRIKE ! !

Now we are going to arbitration; AND, if you READ THE NEWSPAPERS you DUMBFUCK – you would see that many people are losing their jobs. Because of idiots like you pressuring the crack FOP contract negotiating team we will get absolutely F-U-C-K-E-D in arbitration at this point in time.

The deal is-the grant covers starting salary and BENEFITS (pension, raises, all costs) for years 1-2-3 for each officer. Department had to agree to keep officer and pay for year 4. After year 4 they can then be laid off if department chooses or remain on. Grant allows replacement of officer with a new hire if during first 3 years officer resigns or quits. CPD asked for 150 officers from grant, 340 plus other cities and villages from Illinois submitted requests for 1-whatever officers they could fiscally support in future. Only 21 of the 340 plus cities and villages in Illinois received funding, 21 towns awarded money were based on crime stats and fiscal health.... CPD got the 50 (maximum allowed due to nationwide demand) Rockford got 15, Cal City got 5, other towns from 21 total in Illinois got 1-2-3 officers depending on situation. I wrote the grant for local I work for so I got the bad news yesterday-we got none along with most towns. I think grant gave Illinois total of 106 officers total.....everyone facing same situation-not enough help. Good luck CPD guys-50 not going to solve your problems. Better than nothing I guess. Stay safe and alert and help each other out is all we can do for now...

leaving $41,708 left over. take out duty avail/uniform from that for 4 years ($18,880) and you have $22,828 left over.

$22,828 x 50 = $1,141,400.00 or approximatly 3 years of pay for a Sup. at $380,466.00 a year.

Go to www.IowaHawk.typepad.com and scroll down to "Cambridge Police Profiling Still A Grim Reality for Harvard Faculty Assholes"

I e-mailed a copy to Jim Crowley, Cambridge PD.

We also should look to young people, Hairston said.

"When we listen to them about this situation, they're dumbfounded," he said. "They're befuddled. They have no idea why this is all over television. And that should tell us a lot.

Anyone that has teenagers or kids in college knows this. Someone needs to explain this to Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakhan, Wright, Pfleger (ooooh, I'm getting nauseated just picturing this) that they need to let go.

My guess is that they will not let it alone because they would lose their revenue stream and be forced to get a new life where they can't make a living stirring up useless shit.

" How many did W provide? "

Apparently part of Bush's tax cuts was cutting funding for domestic programs like these that fund crime fighting efforts - the irony is the Democratic Senate wanted to increase funding for police but didn't have the veto power if Bush vetoed their efforts.

Hope we do get new coppers because I've heard of at least two openings in 016 that could be filled. 1645, Rambo and Tinkerbell, on 3rd watch have NO activity, do'nt go on jobs, stay down on missions/other peoples jobs allnight, and leave early most of the time. I've heard 016 is'nt the busiest place, but I'd feel better if somebody capable was watching my house other than 1st watch!!!!!

Off Topic But interesting.

I know someone will complain that I did not say what the article was about. So to you, screw you. Read it yourself and quit having people do your work for you.

thank you.

And so you wasted time typing your 'screw you' missive, rather than say what it was about?

Well, screw you. It's a waste of time to go searching for some article and find out its about rabbits with lollipops in their fur, so I'll take a pass on your highly recommended, but of unknown content, links.

I don't recall Bush increasing funding and if I remember, he cut the original COPS program shortly after getting into office. he did however, grant plenty of your tax dollars for the Mexican police to increase their abilities to fight crime:
