How's My Driving?

What?
  • OT: How about the new order coming out about the 'How's my Driving, call......' stickers for the squad cars. Who's brilliant idea was this. Just another way to get the police haters to make another beef on a officer. Time to play fireman and sit in a corner until a call comes in.
If someone actually affixes these to cars, we're going to have a problem. Someone is actually going to call police officers in off the street to drop paper on this nonsense? Without affidavits? Anonymous complaints via a posted phone number?

Someone please tell us this is someone yanking our chain. Because it's too ridiculous to actually be true. Right? Right???

It's true! The most fucked up part of the order is they, as of now, plan to issue a cr # for each call, pending the inv.

OH MY GOD!

This HAS to be a gag... only we're not remotely amused in the slightest.

This shit is way beyond crazy. If these buffoons want to put a sticker on the squads how about "This vehicle subject to make sudden stops/turns, stay back 500ft" Or "Emergency Vehicle, DO NOT FOLLOW" Have the above message displayed in English, Spanish & Polish. For more fun put front & rear facing plate readers on the squads... anybody get too close *ding* they get a love letter from the stuttering shit-stick to cough up $200.00

We think A/2 & A/4 should be the pilot areas for this since the overwhelming majority of active non-contributors (oxymoron of the year) have their feeding & mating grounds in these locations... Let them pay some freight for shorty's mental masturbation over the 'lympics.

This is just another "fuck da Po-leece" from j-fart... like some police hating jags need extra encouragement.

It also sounds like another possible end run around the complaint process. The powers that be are upset because beefs are WAY DOWN! Policemen are doing an EXCELLENT job nowadays of minimizing their exposure to the disciplinary process and potential financial harm. Burst & Co. need some sacrifices in order to justify their existence... To that, the Policeman says "ha-ha, fuck you & the 1 wheel buggy your mama pushed you in."

Get your hands out of our pockets you miserable, unloved bastards!

Actually, couple this with GPS and voila' here's your (BLANK) days for speeding and (BLANK) days for false report, because our data says you did and you say you didn't on your TO-FROM. Why would anyone, and I mean anyone, do anything beyond going through the motions for this company? All you Area Mission, MSF, TRU, TACT., ETC...will wise up when this B.S. begins to attach. Or should I say: "what a tremendous idea and improvement to our department." This ranks up there with CAPS for freeing the officers to use their initiative and be proactive....NOT!

This is probably the dumbist idea yet, and it has some non-police bureaucrat's name on it. We have spies and should find out who's idea this is.

Because the result will be more inactivity, you don't like my driving, OK, I just will not drive. You pick your spot, and drive there, you get a call you go there, no faster than the speed limit, stop a full three seconds at the stop signs, and the last on to start off when the light turns green.

Shortshanks will love this, because it will save all that gas money. The citizens wil say, it took you long enough.

He won't get cals about bad driving, except maybe obstructing traffic. He will get calls about slow responses, and will the manpower shortage, it will be less jobs handled per car per tour.

My mom used to tell me that when she and her old biddy friends would go out for lunch, if they ever saw a police car, one of them would start complaining about SOMETHING about his driving.

"Look at that! If WE ever drove like that, he'd probably give us a ticket!". Invariably, they'd end up looking at my mom in some accusatory way, knowing her son was the Police.

I told her that the next time they said something like that, she should tell them, "my son says that there is a gang of drunken and diseased rapists in the area that are beating and raping senior citizens and that if the police always drive around with their lights and siren on, we'll never be able to catch them!"

Whenever I saw the old biddy patrol after that, they always asked me if we had caught the rapists yet and how they were going to call the police if they ever saw them around.

It doesn't always take a lot of work to get the good people to support us. But it can also take just a few seconds for them to turn on us, as well.

Drive Safe and Stay Safe out there!

i agree with the stickers. some of you guys drive around without lights or sirens on -like a person has a gun or there is a robbery taking place just around the corner! and i am also tired of seeing you run redlights lights like you are trying to get to a domestic or something. since most all people love the police, and there is no road rage at all, no one would ever make a false complaint. you people are all crazy!

i think they should have a stickers with the officers names and home phone numbers on them so we could call the officer to wish him well and tell him how great of a job he is doing, maybe put the officers family info on there too.

another great idea is the officer should not get a payckeck from the city. the officer should go door to door in the area they work and simply ask for a donation based on how well that good citizen feels the po is doing. it would promote great communications between joe citizen and officer friendly. of course this would be done on the officers rdo as to not waste tax payers money.

in all these are solid ideas! I second the vote on ALL counts!

Another great idea by the imbeciles at the top. How many complaints will be generated for responding to a scene with lights and siren off so the bad guy doesn't take off before you get there. This has to a bad dream. It can't possibly be true. I guess a bumper sticker on a community police car in Highland Park would be appropriate, but the war torn areas of Chicago forgetaboutit.

Crimefile has a point. But, your actual driving skills or behavior will have nothing to do with the calls they will be getting.

When administration comes up with a stupid idea like this, then they should suffer for it. And that means "supporting the resistance". If they want to focus on your driving skills rather than crime, then give it to them. Let them be inundated with so many calls that they have to see the error of their ways. Unfortunately, that's the only way to reach these morons. They don't have the intelligence, evidenced by this new driving campaign, to realize that they are going to be up to their asses in phone calls from shitheads day and night. It's not on the officers, it will all become a nightmare that will suck the resources of the front line with bullshit. When the dispatchers realize they won't be able to take their naps anymore, they'll complain and this will all go away.

This is obviously a corporate model of thinking. The Chicago Police Department is not a corporation and should not be subject to all the latest feel good psychological programs like stakeholder policies, mission statements, diversity campaigns, thinking outside the box workshops, team thinking, etc. It doesn't work in the corporations and it certainly won't work here.

This department has lost it's identity. And we all know why and who is to blame. I'm sure Daley knew exactly what he was doing when he hired Weis. Exactly.

This is a reasonable request for officers to drive safely. They have a obligation to protect the residents of this city and driving safely is a serious issue for some officers. Superintendent Weiss has our best interest in mind. Give the program a chance. I support this incentive.

"ESCAPE TO WISCONSIN" (Matter of fact, we're now off to Madison)

"DIAL A BEATING: 9-1-1"

"NICE PEOPLE SWALLOW" (next to "Mean People Suck" sticker)

Good point - put 'em on the take home cars w/o M plates ["front line cars"].
Let the gangs know where the bosses live so they can invade those homes, steal their guns/dough and screw their pooch.

All that said though, how many cars, besides muni vehicles, have no-smoking stickers on the windshields and E-85 stickers by the gas fillers?
The thugs know a LOT more than you give them credit for.
My old partner had an informant that had been pretty productive over a couple of years shock the shit out of her a few months back. He called for a meet to pass along info on a check cashing scheme at a currancy exchange. When my partner chided him for the delay in relaying the info, he replied that he would have told her last week when he saw her at the hotel near OHARE, but didn't want to bother her and her friend.
Hint - the partner is married and lives in MT. Greenwood.
Long term thugs don't miss much, or they wouldn't make it as long term thugs. Yes, I say be SURE to sticker the Boss cars, let them sample the fun of not being anonymous.

These citizens complain about EVERYTHING that does not go their way. Let them put bumper stickers on each car! This is what's going to happen:

"Squad-i'm coming from a ways at 95th and Western..."

-Adjusting Driver's seat for comfort.

-Adjusting air-conditioning

-Using winshield washers to clean windshield


-After I am comfortable, I proceed, Lights and sirens, at 30 MPH., and stopping at every stop light/sign/old lady crossing the street.

"2233-They are calling back. Now It's a person with a gun. The boyfriend just pulled out a gun"

"Squad, I'm enroute. 10-4"


-Parade-wave to all citizens enroute to the domestic battery.

-Entertain all Hand Wavers enroute

-Arrive at Domestic Battery, which is now a 0110...

You have only 4 options in this scenario:

1. Take the 20 CRs that you were driving too reckless

2. Take the CR that it took you too long to arrive at the domestic

3. Take any combination of 1 and 2

4. Take 1 and 2 PLUS the IAD investigation on how it is now YOUR FAULT that the poor baby-mama of 5 kids who was ging back to school to complete her GED who knew her boyfriend sold drugs and had guns, and an order of protection and 13 domestic battery arrests-which she dropped the charges on each one- ended up getting killed...PLUS a wrongful death lawsuit to ice the cake.

Seems we can't win under these conditions. Half of me think they are doing this to make us all retire early, quit, or get fired...The FOP is doing NOTHING. I see they raised their monthly take out of our salaries!!

When this happens, just stop working. Remember to take your time and obey all traffic laws and to always find legal parking.

If you are stupid enough to still be doing anything proactive for this department, this needs to be a wake up call for you.

They truly don't want you to do anything any more. Don't question illegal aliens, don't look too closely at reverends and their "flocks", don't investigate aldermen, don't put hands on criminals.

We are here to be abused by the criminals. You can't get a felony charge on someone who will punch a cop in the face, but they can beef on your driving.

Just stop working right now. It's the only intelligent thing to do. We took an oath, but they don't want us to live by it. Words such as honor, duty, service and sacrifice mean nothing to them.

Just stop working right now. If you don't, it will be too late to get things right again. If you don't give it to them on this one, you will be part of the process of destroying law enforcement in this city.

They are desperate to get the numbers down, and they give us this shit? Give it back to them with what they give us to work with. By the book on driving, parking and enforcement.

Coming soon to Chicago...

Published: Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 3:15 a.m.

The mayor of one Upstate city is defending her decision to tell officers not to chase on foot suspects who run from them.

In a memo dated Sept. 2, Wellford Mayor Sallie Peake wrote: "As of this date, there are to be no more foot chases when a suspect runs. I do not want anyone chasing after any suspects whatsoever."

Reached at City Hall on Friday, Peake said Wellford officers were getting injured too frequently while chasing suspects on foot, costing the taxpayers money in worker's compensation claims. She also said officers are not supposed to chase suspects in vehicles either.

"I said what I meant, and I meant what I said," Peake said. "…And I will not change for you or no one else."

As a citizen, I think this is a stupid idea. I do however think it's annoying when I see you guys flip on your lights to merely avoid sitting at a traffic light in rush-hour traffic. You proceed through the intersection, then continue on at a casual pace, sit in traffic for a few minutes, then decide you should go through this intersection too. I will admit that CPD marked cars do this hardly ever, but the unmarked ones (take-home, exempt, city clout jockies?) do it quite often, as do the suburban cops.
They expect us to stay in line and respect the laws. They install red light cameras to make money off of unsafe intersections. And yet you guys, the ones enforcing the laws, are out doing the same thing you give us tickets for. I support the police, but you guys have to at least see how this can be a little bit aggravating.

Pt. II

Other than a P/O needing an assist or a 10-1, fuck everything & everybody else... 30 mph, strict adherance to one way signage, stop lights & stop signs, no short-cuts through alleys or side streets and be double damn sure to find LEGAL PARKING before exiting your vehicle to handle a job. Traffic backed-up for a mile at a light? It's not your gas & you're on the clock, get to your job in one piece and don't unduly expose yourself to this silly shit.

Whenever possible, two squads should roll side-by-side at 30mph on busy arterial streets for many blocks at a time... One car can accomplish this but it would *ahem* take a little savvy to pull it off.

Also, no alderthief or exempt will have the nerve to co-author/sign-off on ANYTHING remotely resembling an audit/time study delineating a uniform standard response time for any particular job. It's potential career killer for gold stars & a BIG political hot potato just like redrawing district boundaries.

(remember, the catch all phrase is "timely response" but who the fuck is pushing the button on the stop watch?)

Expect field supervision to try to play the "I'm here but where are you" game... Absolute nonsense! They can look at the pending board, blue-shirts can't.

So when you're wayyy off your beat handling jobs then you get a hot call on your beat and sgt./lt./cpt. silly starts with the "I'm here..." game, then by all means giddy-up. Then when the driving beef comes in, notate in your to-from that you were ordered to respond rapidly by a supervisor thus prompting a citizen complaint. After supervision gets bogged down dropping paper behind this foolishness it'll all go away.

Maybe this is the ammo we need to walk this department to a crawl and expose the manpower shortage for ALL to see.

We can barely believe our good fortune that the powers that be would give us something like this... After all, they're SO much SMARTER than the peed-on peons in Patrol, just ask them. We can REALLY put some powerful mean hurt on these morons and there's nothing they can do about it.

When this fails, we'll see which exempts get a Tokarev with one live round, courtesy of j-fart... There'll soon be much crying and muffled single gunshots from behind locked doors at 3510 while the wheels on the squads keep going 'round & 'round...

Do you know how many people are qualified and waiting to be hired. There is no need to give another test, they can't hire off of any new entrance tests, until everyone who qualified from prior tests have been hired. Unfortunately your mayor is not allocating any funds towards police hiring, if any hiring is done it will be thru grant funds that were received for hiring, and that will be a minimal number of people also.

They expect us to stay in line and respect the laws. They install red light cameras to make money off of unsafe intersections. And yet you guys, the ones enforcing the laws, are out doing the same thing you give us tickets for. I support the police, but you guys have to at least see how this can be a little bit aggravating.

Sometimes we are given a hot call and someone gives a "slow down" meaning turn off the lights and sirens but still come.

Face the facts, all of our cars have GPS that can monitor the speed, direction and every movement our vehicle makes. So if someone makes a beef on us saying "beat 2413 was speeding 50 mph on Western and Devon area" they can look it up verify it.

I for one am in favor of this idea. We are not supposed to drive like assholes yet that is what some people do.

Remember you said this when you are getting your ass kicked junior. Oh sorry, i forgot you used 024 as an example. But in the real world we do have to drive a little aggressively sometimes and just because my computer doesn't show me going to a call, doesn't mean I'm not going to a call. There are still a few districts out there that you just can't get through on the radio to say, "hold me going to ***'s job."

Hey maybe the midget can make some money by selling advertising space on the cars too?

Police Resort to Advertising on Cruisers



What do you do when your aging police car fleet needs replacing? Sell ads, it seems. That’s what the police department in Toledo, Ohio, is going to try when it starts bringing in new police cruisers to replace more than 100 that are out of date. The police department sent out letters to 1,000 local businesses, and four have shown interest.

The advertising would be placed on the rear quarter panels on both sides of the cruisers, where “9-1-1” appears. One lawyer and one small retail business have already committed $15,000 each to sponsor a car. The Toledo Fire Department is going to wait and see how the program works before following suit.

We guess it will be easier for those arrested to get a lawyer when the phone number is right there on the car, but it still seems a bit strange to us. What do you think? Does advertising on police cars bother you, or is it a smart way to raise money and keep taxes down?

As a citizen, I think this is a stupid idea. I do however think it's annoying when I see you guys flip on your lights to merely avoid sitting at a traffic light in rush-hour traffic. You proceed through the intersection, then continue on at a casual pace, sit in traffic for a few minutes, then decide you should go through this intersection too. I will admit that CPD marked cars do this hardly ever, but the unmarked ones (take-home, exempt, city clout jockies?) do it quite often, as do the suburban cops.
They expect us to stay in line and respect the laws. They install red light cameras to make money off of unsafe intersections.

Dear citizen, the police is in a business of GOING places. With the manpower shortage, we are constantly going from job to job, which means that we are not JUST WAITING for the light to change. 99% of the cars have places to go. Think about that when pookie kicking your ass, and you want to complain about the response times. This is not Alice In Wonderland where officers may teleport themselves to the scene with 3 clicks of their heels. You are not in the vehicle with the officer. We do not have a schedule to get to the jobs. All crime does not start specifically on the :15,:30 or :45 of the hour, and often times we have 3+ miles to get to DUMB-Mestics before pookie beats your ass lifeless. Often officers will use the lights WITH DISCRETION so pookie may still be there when they arrive. Or, If you wish for the police to catch the crackhead you let wash your car that now broke into your house- without giving him a 3 block notice, they will not use a siren. But thanks to people like you, your unknown offenders will now pillage and terrorize the citizens who MIND THEIR BUSINESS, because now response times will jump, more crimes will go unsolved, more ass will be beat, but that's what you ask for. Careful of what you ask cuz you, pookie, shaniqua, and Daley will get what you ask. I dont care if i see the offender speeding off the block. I'm not going to exceed the speed limit or pass a stop sign to catch him....Thank you for making my job easier. MERRY CHRISTMAS dear citizen, hope you like your present

Are you privy to the communication that we are. Did you ever consider that the police vehicle you observe going through a light may be responding to a burglary in progress and the use of emergency equipment only serves to alert the offenders of the impending arrival of the responding officers.

Did you, dear citizen ever consider that maybe the police vehicle you saw going disobeying a traffic signal without using its emergency equipment may be doing so because they are responding to a situation which requires stealth and caution.

Of course you haven't because in Willmette, Winnetka or whatever suburb you reside in, the bad guy where you live, if they even exist, doesn't motherfuck, fight or shoot at the police.

I don't walk into your cozy corner office on the 80th floor of the Hancock building and judge you because I don't know the first thing about your profession nor do assume that I can do it better. Please don't judge our actions based simply on what you percieve absent of any additional information.

I will accept the fact that we as police are accountable to those we serve. However, "How Is My Driving?" bumper stickers on our cars? To all those civilians that even consider calling that number and reporting. Work patrol in Area 1 or Area 2 for one Friday night and you will quickly realize that we don't deliver pizzas or work at FED EX for a living. Sometimes that red light or stop sign is the least of a coppers concern!

This is just another stupid idea like the post earlier that said the city was trying to make us the same as the corporate world.

Last time I checked we were not truck drivers, not delivery people etc. Our job requires us to drive a certain way and as long as it is safe - and it is - wtf is the problem?

civilian post---
a personal anecdote which I think should be read in the spirit of having a laugh.

Come home with the family in 2002, lived in 25 at the time, Police supporter (everyone laugh now, lotsa family on the job) Squad parked blocking the street to the apron in front of my garage talking to a female in a car, driver to driver, traffic backing up and down the secondary street to go around them or not even turning, or kind of turning and backing back, you know what I mean... anyways

Musclebound PO impressing everyone around him, I'm sure. I stop, wait, catch the eye of the hispanic PO on midnights, point toward my garage. He advises me to "go around" over his loud speaker and goes back impressing his pussy, laughing.

So I take my 80 thousand dollar Mercedes truck down the sidewalk on Palmer, westbound, along my fence, do a quick T-turn, back up to my apron, back to his partner's door to about 4 inches, who wakes his sorry ass up when gravel hits the door when I do a brief brake stand, starting to pull forward into my garage and he hits me with his light into my rearview mirror which I switch off so I can only see hispanic number two's dumb ass face.
Pull into my garage, exit the vehicle and walk around.

Muclebound H PO doesn't quite know how to take the initiative. sleeping buddy, also..So I yell him this:

"Man that was cool huh >," smiling at his asswipe shocked face, "following a direct order by **** I drove around 25** to my destination, man!!! that was fun !!!"
Then he stammers on about, advising a civilian on shots fired,,,what a total ass.

My point being I wouldn't have called a number on 25** anyway, but he was and is a total ass.

One of the missions of Pete Burst is to repair the relationship between citizens and police. During his research he learned that incident involving marked cars splashing citizens on the curb side were not uncommon. He strongly believes this type of behavior is very indictive of how the trust between police officers and citizens has crumbuled. Therefore, this order was an attempt to allow citizens to report the " sharking" and help repair the damaged relationship between Police and citizens. This is not made up , only a feeb can think like this.

_____________________________

Thats not whats going on there miss, somtimes were trying to get to a destination faster, while trying to do so in a safe manner. So going through lights reduces the time it takes to get there. This is often the case when a job comes out that could go bad for the assigned unit, and as a precaution you start heading in the direction of the call just in case an officer needs help. The driver of the vehicles your talking about are usually more expierienced Officers who can tell when they need to start getting closer just in case, but it isn't an emergency yet. Not everything is as clear cut , but you can never know what the Police officer is thinking in thosew incidents, but rest assured it is alomst always duty related. at least in my case and expierience it is.
