Quotas Are Back in 017

That's what we hear at least:
  • My sources tell me that the 017th District 3rd Watch W/C (KB) is calling officers in & telling them that if their activity does not improve he will have to place them in the "Personnal Concern" Program. Is this action a threat making the 3rd Watch a Hostile Work Enviroment, an EEOC Complaint or both. Is he acting on his own or with the Commanders Orders? Just asking??

  • please address this scc,officers in 017 dist. called in by 2nd watch comm. 3rd watch comm.about performance, giving neg reviews.. this is a hostile work enviroment. activity, activity, numbers. numbers
We aren't sure, but this doesn't seem to rise to the level of a "Personnel Concern." Let's see...Administrative Order 05-04 - Personnel Concerns Program, Section V-C (we're summarizing here:)
  1. sustained excessive force CRs
  2. four instances of "program eligible conduct" from the "Nondisciplinary Intervention Pilot Program
  3. sustained domestic violence CRs
  4. sustained intoxication CRs
  5. sustained penalties of 10 days or more
  6. five sustained CRs in 5 years
  7. two performance grades below a 76 (which hasn't been done in 10 years or more)
  8. one performance grade below a 70 (again, a defunct system)
  9. two SPARs for being AWOL
  10. psych evaluation
  11. Behavioral Intervention System failure
Nope, nothing in there about activity. In any case, always request Union representation, a witness if possible and notification in writing and make sure the captain cites the appropriate section of Administrative Order 04-05.

Sounds like the captain is about to make a whole bunch of coppers very happy this Christmas. Sounds like the Commander might be on the hook since he's allowing this to go on.

I was in the academy class for performance evaluation where these two idiots from 017 did nothing but gripe about how they wanted to use the evaluation system against P/O's who did not write tickets. They were told numerous times that this was not the correct use of the evaluation system but they simply kept on arguing that they were going to use the evaluation system as a means to force P/O's to write tickets. Eventually, the instructor asked them how many times they had to be told that the Department does not want the new evaluation system used as a means of increasing tickets? They were too stupid too understand the principle! If this is meant to be our leadership, what hope is there?

Immediately file grievances if placed in a Personnel Concern Program without documentation of just cause. If appropriate, file class action suits against the W/C's and Commander in 017. Ask for punitive damages out of their pockets. Enough of the bullshit; don't take it.

The first watch w/c also made mention that decreased activity would bring about negative consequences as well. Nothing more specific was said, but the evaluation was alluded to.

Hello out there fellow Gang and Tactical Warriors!

Groucho Marx is a total Gaylord butt-wiper! I don't normally bash supervisors since we all know most of them are fearless Demi-Gods that are way cooler and smarter then us regular officers, but I have to make an exception here.

Months ago I was working out at the Y by myself. I had recently gotten kicked out of Exsport for handcuffing a Simon City Royal gang member. Unfortunately, I didn't recognize him until we were both naked, taking a shower, when I decided to arrest him for not wiping his sweat off of the weight machines.

Anyways, here I am working out, when Groucho and J-Fed walk in. They recognize me automatically since I am a legend in Wicker Park. After I saluted both of them they told me they were going to help me boost my quads. The next thing I know, Groucho put a funny smelling rag up to my face and I passed out. The two jokesters decided to pull a prank and remove all of my clothes and run off with them. Man, was I embarrassed when I woke up!

I'm not going to get into what else they did to me, while I was knocked out, because that's not important. What is important is that Groucho is a great man. (Sorry, I know I'm backtracking from my previous statement but I'm on my 6th shot of Apple Pucker.)

You've got to love him. What other man would be brave enough to make over a 100,000 grand a year, but still take the time and initiative to make sure that the lowly men and woman under his watch, (many of whom work side jobs to be able to afford to live in this city, suffer from divorce, get shit on by the media and public,don't often get to spend time with there family and friends because of tough hours, work a dangerous job but are treated like servants etc.) bring in the valuable contact cards and write tickets to generate revenue for a totally corrupt political machine.

Yep, this guy has brass balls. I'm not sure what he did before he became the Dark Lord of 017, but he must have made a shit load of felony arrests and not sucked his way up to the top like some house mouse! Right?

Until next time, take care fellow Delta Force Warriors.

Does anybody have balls in 17 to say no? We will see. All you have to do is show up for work and answer your calls. If the calls require tickets or paper, you write them. Besides that get an event # for a foot patrol and do it. The 17 District is not the Southside guetto.

Is the Capt going about this the right way? Absolutely not!! But why should you get paid a good amount of $ to drive around and do nothing? Sure your contract is expired but your still getting paid. I can already see that you will be the same person saying I am not doing shit because the contract we finally got sucks. Its been the same story for years. Policeman spend more time getting out of work than just doing the work. Nobody is going asking you to break the bank, but how about something for that nice check you receive? Oh wait you will bitch about having to live in the city, have you looked at the tax structure in the burbs? you complain about having to work 10 sidejobs to pay your bills, stop spending like your some freaking millionaire.
Oh wait you will complain about daley, guess what he is running a corporation and has the corporations best interest at heart, not yours. stalling on the contract makes the city money.
You want to hurt the city, start making a lol of arrests and hurt them in court. Stop working side jobs for $20 a hour and go to court for $45.

I have lived in Sauganash for over 20 years and have seen the level of police service go down every year. The police officers use to be very professional. Now they are rude and lazy. I have talked to the alderwomen to no avail. I understand that your jobs are difficult but it truly shows a lack of caring when you ride around in your squad cars on your cell phones when my son is coming home from Queen of All Saints. Mean while cars are zooming through the stop signs. Dont you people have kids? And there have been a rash of home breakins too.

What is your objective, and the key word is objective for measuring activity? Secondly, when was the last time there were evaluations?

I will tell you this, subjectively evaluate me because you do not like me, or have no clear objective standard to evaluate me by and I will own your house! I am waiting for this to happen to me because I will file a grievance and a lawsuit as fast as I can. I will be looking for punitive damages because I KNOW HOW A NIUMBER OF YOU BOSSES IN 017 have talked about punishing us and putting us in our places. Those conversations will come to light in a court action if necessary.

Why are you bosses insistent on making this a conflict? You are not going to win this one and that is a given.

And if you do not think that there is the potential for some EEOC violations in all of this, then you live in cuckooland with your Mayor.

Just a little curious here, can someone please explain to me how its a hostile working enviorment to ask someone to do his or her job?, unless its written somewhere that all you have to do to get PAID is show up, you howl with indignation at city workers standing around doing nothing, yet its ok for you to basically do the same, 1 and 5 was always the citeria to stay on a watch prior to steady watch's if you liked the bosses and liked your partner and wanted to stay on that watch you BROUGHT in ACTIVITY its as simple as that, I know things have changed, and there is no contract and you feel maybe rightly so you are being dumped on. If you are bringing in Guns and Dope and Burglars and Car thieves, Stick up men etc you have a right to be pissed about being asked to write movers, if thats the case perhaps I'm wrong, but I dont think you're being asked to do anything outrageous. Perhaps it is the fault of the bosses for not explianing whats expected of you when you first get on the job, when in the academy were you told that all you had to do was answer radio calls, and nothing else, flame away, I was the REAL police when the majority of you wernt even born.

This is all with the commanders blessing i'm sure. 017 has become a horrible place to work. The 1st watch is being watched by commander for activity, and the evaluation system is going to be used to document lack of activity, parkers, movers, i can't wait to refuse to accept my evaluation. I will refuse all the way up the chain, telling everyone i was told lack of movers and parkers equals bad rating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hostile work environment, EEOC, downtown listen up give us a new commander a true leader.

Hmmm...

A bit of advice...

1. If the affected officers do decide to grieve or file suit remember to document, document and document again.

2. Witnesses and more witnesses to support your documentation.

3. Do not by ANY means step into the office/around the corner/into an unused interview room with any/all of the offending supervisors... They are cowards who love playing the their word versus yours game. Make them play their bullshit out in the open in front of witnesses. If they confront you and say/do something illegal then you have a right to have a c/r# generated and a case report drawn naming them as an offender. Potential aggravating circumstance is they're armed... Remember officers, you "fear" being possibly physically harmed by them correct? Be sure to notate tone of voice and posture of the offending supervisory member... Policemen are experts at this correct?

4. If there are no witnesses to an illegal/improper act by the offending supervisory members, then as a last ditch key up your radio or activate the 'record' feature on your cell phone. This would be a ticklish proposition inside the station but is plausibly fair game on the public way. Protect yourselves at all costs in a crooked/compromised system that infers second rate status to blue-shirted first responders.

5. Protect your interdepartmental correspondence! Decayed-ass, cowardly muthafuckahs WILL RIFLE THE MAILBAG TO INTERCEPT WHAT YOU ARE FORWARDING! Or at least put one of their stooges up to this. We speak of hard learned experience on this particular subject!

6. Do your homework. Pool resources and pay a retainer to a GOOD criminal lawyer. It also wouldn't hurt to hire a private investigator as well. Who knows what other interesting things the P.I. might uncover to help put a mean hurt on these craven white-shirt cowards?

If any of these steps are taken with maximum prejudice, the offending supervisors will be left by the Department to twist in the wind from the scaffold they built for themselves.

"C'mon guys, you know how things are, just play along, we REALLY weren't gonna do that so be good sports and call off the dogs."

Again, experience is a great teacher but it's a sin and a shame that in these times, Policemen have to put up with this nonsense but those are the breaks of unseasoned, overpromoted, lacking in personality and decency supervision.

We have PARTICULAR disdain for "lawyer-visors" like Cmdr. Borat. We haven't encountered ONE "lawyer-visor" on this job that was worth the ink on his/her paper.

The common thread is cowardly, clouted enough to go to law school on company time and an express ride to iad. we recall one loathsome sort who proudly said, "I became a lawyer so I can better fuck over blue-shirts."

The word was when Charlie Williams was told to "jump or get pushed," Borat was allegedly looking like he was listening to "music to slit your wrists to" since they were best buds and had a mutual disdain for Policemen.

At any rate, a special fire burns for them because of the lives and careers they ruined or tried to ruin.

Hmmmm... only the best and brightest for CPD management eh?
...This city has truly gone mad.

I know I'm aging myself if i ask Officers who were from the 013th Dist back in the early 90's remember when that lil Rat bastard was made Lt. I remember He would call in his Sgt's from his watch and ream them a new one for activity from their Beat cars. I remember him calling in a Sgt. and not locking the door completely and yelling at this Sgt about NO ACTIVITY. What a douche. Hey Mikey, Remember the "Wood St. Informer" This was our 013th dist newspaper where Officers would vent when a boss was a Jagoff and gave kudos to the Real Bosses. I dont have any copies of it and i wish i did so i could send it to S.C.C. and the 017 dist a to show em that we saw this Rat coming.
We called him Mealer Mouse because he was a fucking Rat. The cartoons were the best showing him chasing that hunk of cheese while he held a P.O. by the throat. FUCK YOU MIKEY... You were a piece of shit back then and a bigger one now. Please if anyone from the old 013 has a copy of the "Wood St. Informer" try to send to S.S.C.
I'm retired now and I'm loving it. I cant believe how bad the Dept has become. I hope the Officers who are trying to take care of their families and trying to give them better stay safe. I was able to get out just in the nick of time and hope you all do as well. As my FTO said many many many years ago.

Before bids for straight watches, WC's had their own numbers to stay on their watch. Some WC's wanted 3 parkers and 1 mover a day, others wanted 5 parkers a day and a mover every other day and some bus checks. Every watch had a different quota, and if you wanted to rotate around with a Watch you brought in the required numbers, if you didn't you got the call the day before change day you were staying on midnights and getting your DOG changed, loosing weekends. That was then, NOW these WC's can't make you do anything other than answer calls. If your a bid on 3rd Watch your in, period!!! If these WC's would treat the blue shirts like adults and with mutual respect then maybe the PO's would bring in some activity for the WC....... if you treat the PO's with contempt (attn HQ) you reap what you sow.

Tradtionally, it has been hard to find a way to rate police officers except to use numbers of activity and compare one officer against his peers in the same district, watch, unit etc. No one has really figured out how to do this. The old methods used by the department; knocking you off of your watrch, changing your day off group, denying time off etc, has pretty much been eliminated by the unions. That said, 017 is a pretty nice place to work, not much going on as compared to many other districts in the city. So, stop crying. You have a great job assigned to a great location. Go out and do a little work. Just don't let the city use the ticket system as a fund raiser and penalize the good citizens. The fact of the matter is, many police officers do little or nothing and rarely, if ever write any tickets.The cry babies want to make me cry

And more than single digits if you were a two man car.....And for the guy beefing about the police writing tickets in 016 for expired plates....Hell yeah I write those, why should I be the only one dishing out $79.00 every year for a sticker, your neighbors should be paying the same....most people that have expired stickers are suspended and can't get the new ones....

I'm not saying write tickets and movers for bs stuff but there are enough people driving around on Suspended D/L no D/L's, no insurance and other stuff to not have to tag the working Joe for going thru a stop sign.

REMEMBER WHY YOU BECAME THE POLICE......to be proactive not to be a dog ass.......

I could care less if you don't lock up the one bagger dope pinches, or the bs domestic no visible injury conflicting stories crap. But we all need to keep a lid on the GANGBANGERS with GUNs and the BURGLARS and stick up men, because every once in a while it comes too close to home.....for everyone......

I can see the name tag, I worked there in 007 for ten years and I wanted to forget it as quick as possible. Hat backwards, this is not a college frat house, wear it correctly. As far as awards go if you choose to wear them, wear them if you don't...then don't. I wear mine because I earned them in a shithole place not "creating a computer program", its the least the city can do.

God are you guys/gals a bunch of fucking cry babies..You're going to sue for hostile work environment? Really? What did the supervisor/WC/DC do to make it a hostile work environment? Told you you have ot have activity on your 8 hour tour?
I'm a firm believer in don't write a fucking ticket for this city unless you have to or the person is an asshole...but you have no basis for any kind of lawsuit...the person you write a ticket to may have a case against you and the city for a quota, but you have none. The city can make the rules of your employment as long as they are not discriminatory (certain rules apply and it is based on sex and race.) Whistle blower stats don't count unless you report it to the feds that there is a quota and they "harm" you due to that.
Get off your fucking horse...You are a bunch of idiots. If you don't want to do anything, don't. Stop saying you are going to sue when you have no clue what the law is....

To: Retired Sgt. Should your title have been Retired Meritorious Sgt?

While I hate a DOG as much as the next working copper. What you fail to understand this isn't the same department and city you once served. In this day and age you cant get fired or find yourself in prison for simply doing your job. As long as police officers have discretion on when to cite moving and parking violations, bosses should not demand you write them. As long as coppers are patrolling their beats, responding to calls for service, and arresting people when there is probable cause and signed complaints police officers are earning their pay! Now if you are a Boss and tell me I need to write parkers and movers to receive a pay increase or avoid being put on the behavioral alert program, then tell me in writing what it is I have to produce to avoid all this.
You know what, they cant! Because it is illegal to have QUOTAS!!!! So if you keep bringing me into your office and threatening with refusing me with time due, pay raise, or putting me into the BIS when you know quotas are illegal, YOU ARE MAKING A HOSTILE WORK ENVIORMENT. Enjoy your retirement and unless you are walking in our shoes, MIND YOUR BUSINESS!

I gotta say this is nothing to worry about. This has gone on forever. You needed to do so much to stay on a watch back when we rotated. If you like the boss then write the tickets. If you don't then don't write the tickets. It is as easy as that. If the guys in 017 are jags then don't do it. They cant hurt you but you can make them look bad downtown. So you get kicked off a car, big deal. I have been called into the W/Cs office in the past about activity. You just listen, say OK boss, then leave and go back to doing what you do. No biggie.

Working in 017 there has been a constant discussion going on regarding activity in the district and the commander himself is real big on activity. the only thing that seems to matter in this district is writing movers and parkers and getting curfews. The captain on 1st watch is afraid of being replaced like the 2nd and 3rd watch so he always mentions how the numbers are low. The captain on 2nd watch is constantly asking for numbers and if you don't produce, your constantly picked on indiscretly by being moved around a lot and the captain on 3rd watch has a issue with bringing activity in also. Both captains on 2nd and 3rd watch hardly give anytime off even though that is time earned by working ot and going to court and if you have to get a ot slip signed, they are hesitant on signing it. Either way, no matter what watch your on, it is a damn if you do damn if you don't because if you bring activity in, you still get treated as if you don't bring anything.

For you bosses who keep posting on here to the blue shirts, do your job: do yours, too, asshats.

You workout your schedules to allow sgts the ability to leave early WITHOUT putting in a slip.

You put up whenever you can a 40 car and 40 supervises from some comfortable location, usually not in the district.

Your suppose to commend and encourage those who do well - you don't.

You go to your holes and take your little naps when you are suppose to be supervising.

Enough is enough. We are not writing tickets because the fucking Mayor just wants the money and is willing to get that extra money at the expense of the taxpaying citizens. We are not writing tickets because it is a two way street - you get what you want when we get what we want. I have discretion and I DO NOT HAVE TO WRITE violators. Instead all of you supervisors are so afraid of MM. For godsake stand up for yourselves, or are you threatened by the blue shirts who are willing to stand up against you when you make illegal threats, veiled or not?

Many, many years ago I had a W/C who was being pressured by the D/C to jack up the numbers for his watch. That W/C told the D/C, fuck you, my men are cops not revenue makers; if they see a mover or a parker then they can write it if they choose; otherwise, they are policemen, boss, and policemen patrol and lock people up, but they don't generate revenue. The D/C was pissed! You know what happend though? Those policemen, the majority at least, worked for that W/C.

You bosses just don't get it. Be more like that standup W/C day in and day out and you will see the positive response that you get.

Continue to yell and threaten us and we will give you more of the same, zero.

P.S. And for you some of you bosses who hate this site, I find it ironic you still come back to it and post your response to our "bullshit" remarks and posts. I guess some of this shit is just crawling under your skin. Kind-a-like how some of your bad bosses crawl underneath ours.

Respect, ladies and gentlemen?

Of course. You deserve it. Most of you are hard working souls who are trying their best after being shown little or no appreciation for a very long time. You deserve a timely contract negotiated in good faith, which unfortunately has not come to pass. Our adoring media seems to go from one scandal to another and dosen't have room in its "newspaper" for the many other days of good work you do, sometimes downright heroic. Its the truth. You deserve better.

We, however have a responsibility as well.

Lets take a breath and remember what it is we do. Our job includes locking up badguys, writing tickets, curfews and parkers among many other duties. You don't have to be a superstar, but I ask all the working coppers out there,...is it fair that you are doing your job and some officers are doing NOTHING? Is it so wrong that the W/C 's asked them to join the ranks of the working by contributing ANYTHING? So before you start thinking about EEOC actions and lawsuits and grievances, let me suggest this.

This isn't about hating a boss or being a company guy or drinking the koolaide. It's much more simple than that.

It's about what is the right thing to do.

I was in the academy class for performance evaluation where these two idiots from 017 did nothing but gripe about how they wanted to use the evaluation system against P/O's who did not write tickets. They were told numerous times that this was not the correct use of the evaluation system but they simply kept on arguing that they were going to use the evaluation system as a means to force P/O's to write tickets. Eventually, the instructor asked them how many times they had to be told that the Department does not want the new evaluation system used as a means of increasing tickets? They were too stupid too understand the principle! If this is meant to be our leadership, what hope is there?

I'll make this short and sweet. Try to pay attention retards. No one is saying to do absolutely nothing. Yes, we took an oath. If myself or any of my fellow police officers driving around witness a crime in progress we will put a stop to it. We will answer our 911 calls and clear in a timely fashion to handle more. If someone calls we'll even do parkers. We will not, and don't have to do movers.

To the previous comments about doing our job and writing tickets, I don't think so waterhead. If I wanted to write movers I'd have worked for the suburbs. And don't give me that shit about enforcing laws. You must be white shirts that posted that. Last time I checked half of the city was filled with immigrants that don't have licenses or insurance and wouldn't show up to court anyway. Plus, we have the same old ghetto citizens that have never gave a fuck and don't have license or insurance.

The damn has already broke in that the aspect of law enforcement in this city. The government doesn't give a fuck because they don't deport anybody. They can't even get rid of that drunk M/4 without the pussy Alder-creatures getting worked up in a tizzy. If the government doesn't care and ain't doing shit then neither should we!

So, let's not get writing movers confused with police work. Anybody that would post that is a two-year wonder or suckass white shirt. Fuck the city, don't generate them any money. The city has no problem raising my property taxes, I got no problem not writing movers. Thanx for your time. Now go home and get your fucking shine boxes!

Yeah, do that, they probably need a good laugh. Don't any you morons have a clue what the EEOC does, or what "a hostile work environment" means? EEOC means Equal Employment Opprotunities Commission. They investigate complaints of "hostile work environment" meaning that the boss or bosses treat people unequally based on race, gender, national origin, and they may have added sexual orientation. It has nothing to do with a boss trying to do his job, by trying to get you fools to do yours. That is what he is there for. Andd don't start with the crap that writing tickets is not police work. Of course it is.

It is interesting how most of you are so quick to criticize those on the public dole, but are those of you that want to get paid for just showing up all that much different. I think not. I can't believe what assholes a large majority of cops have become. It sure seems different than before I retirec 10 years ago.

REMEMBER WHY YOU BECAME THE POLICE......to be proactive not to be a dog ass.......


Proactive means locking up bad guys, not parkers, movers, contact cards and bus checks. wonder what kind of boss you are?

Please tell me how copper gutters can be stolen on the Northwest Side in broad day light.

because we cant be evrywhere at once, the same way 600+ people are killed each year. or maybe your wonderful neighbors didnt call the police when they saw the people on ladders they mistook for contractors. How about some reasonable common sense civvie. shit happens everywhere!!!!

HMMMM...

We're more than familiar with who is at the helm of CPD. In regard to a P.O. protecting themselves from being harassed, bullied and threatened by members of management. Other than going through the current process in place for redress (and we all know how "uncompromised" the current process is) what other options are there?

As far as recording is concerned, that is why we put the caveat of "ticklish proposition." Ironic that everyone and their brother can film/record the Police to no ill effect (BIG HIDDEN CLUE here and no we're NOT going to tip our hand in a public forum and we say no more on this) but "oh no, don't try to record the actions of a supervisor acting an idiot by demeaning a subordinate."

We obviously hit a nerve... Most Policemen are well acquanted with the ways and wiles of rotten management members and the stunts they pull under the guise of "supervision" as noted from the ongoing nonsense in 017. We're appalled that adults (with weapons) have the gall to mistreat other adults (again, with weapons).

Who can step in and say enough is enough? Our kingdom for a boss who says "mistreat my officers and I will mistreat you." It's a rarity, but it's been said/done before but not often enough to make a difference.

Just like with dude on the street, you have to be willing to fight dirty sometimes. Just be ready...

Crazy? Only when trying to protect ourselves, our family members and Policemen. Anything else is a secondary consideration...

He moved TL out so he could bring in KB (they are buddies). When you really think about it boys and girls he did TL a huge favor. TL does not have to be bullied by MM any longer. MM brought in a friend like KB then make him be the bad guy and stick it to the troops. This way MM thinks he doesnt look so bad. Meantime, he is fooling no one. Who uses friends like this for personal gain? MM does, but this time it has backfired. KB probably thought he was getting a good deal. So sad.
