Clean the Damn Cars

We know many claim Dugan is a micro-manager. Lot's of people in positions of power are. But does he really have to send out a memo telling people to clean out cars and designate supervisors to check it out?

We know many have the attitude of "It's not my car - I didn't pay for it" and they treat that way. We've gotten into cars with under 1,000 miles and the steering wheel is cut, there's graffiti on the upholstery and all sorts of papers and garbage is on the floor. How much effort does it take to pull up to a garbage can and empty out the crap you brought into the car 8 hours earlier?

For the most part, all we leave in the car is the paper so the next watch has something to read. We understand there was that one incident where someone left a Styrofoam tray full of Maxwell Street cooked onions under the front seat on a warm summer night, but that was after they left the car on empty one too many times.

All kidding aside, cleaning out the car is a basic courtesy all too lacking lately, especially as there are no more "assigned" cars to specific beats. The city gives us crap equipment and shits on us constantly...do we really have to stick it to the next watch because we're too lazy to simply dump our own trash?

I recently found a half eaten bagel between the seat and the transmission hump.

But the worst was chicken and rib bones from the old timer M/1 (who overtly stated he hated all white people) who still used jeri curl who had the car on days.

He found a week's worth in a Jewel bag on the front hood of his Range Rover one day.

Dugie is right on this one......it is a shame there has to be an order to clean up after yourself.

The sad thing is we have to address this shit! The City purchased brand new cars for us. Some of “US” live like the rats and roaches we lock up. Chicken bones, half eaten burgers, garbage, dirty spoons, cut up steering wheels,... Getting into a squad is like going into a project apartment. It’s fucking disgusting. I won’t get pissed about leaving me on damn near empty, I can see an accident every once and a while where coffee gets spilled, but almost every day is fucking unacceptable!

The sad thing is; it’s probably how some of “US” live.

I remember an asshole midnight copper notorious for leaving shit in the car. One morning, I opened up the car door and discovered the jagoff spilt an entire extra large cup of Dunkin donuts coffee with cream and sugar. It was all over the front and rear floors. Most of it congealed in the rear floor. A "discussion" was held in the lockerroom (sans revolvers). The attitude adjustment worked.

If the supervisors take a "solve it among yourselves attitude" then cops that leave squad cars constatly looking like shit or empty of gas deserve ass beatings. Period.

When I worked in 014, there was a certain sergeant who would leave all sorts of trash in the car...coffe cups, candy wrappers, pop cans under the seat and my all time favorite, a KFC snack box with chicken bones.

We were the only 2 people who used the car, since it was down on 1st watch. I confronted him several times and he denied he was leaving stuff in there. Said it must be people putting stuff in the car to mess with us.

Well, I fixed his @ss. I collected trash fro about 2 weeks and then left it on the seats and dash. Guess what? The car stayed clean from then on!

Suddenly, cars are dirty, small maintenance issues are ignored and beat tags are a rare commodity.

The fact is, and I'm not saying I agree with it, when you have the same car consistently, you keep it cleaner, you notice those little 'off' sounds that mean engine or brake trouble and the damned beat tag doesn't go missing (intentionally or not) on a daily basis because IT STAYS ON THE CAR.

And now, you get to play musical pdt every day! The pdt lottery means even the traffic car has no guarantee his assigned car for the day will have a computer in it!

Between the missing beat tag, finding a pdt that fit my empty computer mount and a radio battery that died before I left the lot today, forty minutes was lost this morning. Stupid.

This little car juggling experiment isn't working.

It just goes to show you that a small percentage of misfits can mess it up for the rest of us. There is actually a plainclothes unit that I personally observed arrive early about an hour ahead of their tour last summer and take their unmarked vehicle to the end of the lot in the district and take out the Armor-All / Turtle wax / Windex / and spit and polish the car inside and out. Those guys were workers too. They brought in arrests and were just great guys. Before long it seemed like the rest of their team was following in suit. Professionalism. We like to keep our car clean just because you can see if anything was dropped behind by our arrestee. It's a safety thing. Common sense would tell you to keep a car clean. But unfortunately,it's always that small percentage of goofs that ruin it for the rest of us, pissing off people left and right.

Granted it will end up costing us in the long run, but, every time you get your "squat car" washed, it comes out of city coffers. The stuttering prick will think twice about clean cars when he can't line his, or some family member or friends' pockets. And sinc the city owns the cars, and he thinks he owns the city, just sign his name on the car wash sheet...and dat ain't no hibbity jibbity...mmmm hhmmmm...

Dan Dugan has completely lost his marbles. Look at all the wacky shit he has put out in the last year: 1st he said all desk crews should have no more than 2 p.o.'s and 1 desk Sgt.......oh and eliminate the watch secretary. I haven't found one district that did eliminate the watch secretary because if you did then all that stuff falls to the w/c. Next our boy Dan decided that under the new 4&2 desk crews and lockup crews are now supposed to take a lunch. The desk and lockup have never had lunches as far back as I can remember they've had a straight 8 hour tour while the cars have had 8.5 . In the departments infinite wisdom they decided that their would be a 2 hour overlap between 3 rd and 1st watch desk and lockup crews? How is that logical?
Dapper Dan figures that one of the overlapping desk crews can do some nonsensical, non essential bullshit like clean up the bulk storage area! Now he's saying that Lt.'s have to make sure the cars are clean and if we're short on cars then Sgt.'s will ride with p.o.'s? As I said before this guy has lost it. He obviously is very far removed from how a watch in a district operates. I'd venture to say he spent little if any time as a Sgt or a Lt on a watch. If it wasn't so ridiculous it would be funny. Dan what will you come up with next?

LMFAO! An old partner and myself did the Maxwell street trick to a long haired, liberal, freak of a cop who did not believe in bathing! The head rest would smell of his greasy, oily hair. The rest of the car would reek of body odor covered by cheap cologne every day we got into it! We told the oncoming shift to take out another car that day to spare them what was to come. Boy that squad smelled of onions and peppers for a week! The hippie bitched up a storm! But it was a huge improvement!!! The hippie eventually started to bathe after he found out the tight rubber band he held his pony tail together with was the cause of his constant migraines. The point is exercise some common sense people, clean the cars and yourself once in awhile. You are in a six foot by six foot hot box for eight(+) hours a day, show some consideration for the next watch.

While I agree that a clean car is nice, nothing beats leaving a strategically placed open tin of sardines in the car of the jagoff that consistently increases my workload by blowing-off or staying down an exorbitant amount of time on jobs. Those little fish, particularly when packaged in the mustard sauce, will funk-up a beat car like you wouldn't believe.

Everyone's got a couple of slouches on the prior or latter watch that deserve this bit of well-played retaliation...you just have to let the good guys on the other watchs in on your little prank.

And while we're on the topic of car interior conditions, shall I even begin to address the amount of farts that have been force-fed into the seat foam of every car? Six different asses over a 24 hour period depositing rancid methane that could easily fog a West Side 6-flat of several generations of roaches ...you do the math.

I'm sorry but the biggest slobs I have ever met in my life don't live in the ghetto. They are Chicago Police Officers!!!!!!

Two times in my career I was blessed to get a new car on this job. Once on the gang team and once as a beat officer. I swear once a week I had to take the car to a car wash and vaccum it out. The slobs on other watches and teams were scum bags. I was too embarrassed to just take it to the car wash without cleaning the inside up a touch.

I could swear when I worked in the district there was always a car inspection on Sunday mornings. I think if the car is dirty during the inspection the officer/s should take a day who had the car last.

I have been on for almost 17 years and will continure to clean the car to my standards when I am using it, even if it means cleaning other peoples garbage out. Another officer is not going to get written up because I cried about what pigs they are. If it really bothers me that much I will take care of it in person. There are other ways to deal with it than to RAT someone out and get them written up. Don't make enemies with the people that you work with, others hate us enough and beef on us plenty.
I am not saying its right but we can't justify a wrong doing to a fellow officer because they are slobs. We used to be a family and dealth with things in house. Now it sounds like we are a bunch of jail house rats! When we divide ourselves anyone can break us and invade our home!

When I was in patrol, the car I was assigned to on 3rd watch was used by a park detail car on days.
You guessed it, no gas and tons of crap left in the car EVERY day.
Put up with it for a while, then started to gather his waste and pack it in his department mailbox.
No change, like this guy would every get court papers, mug pix [yes, it was a while back] or any police work related mail.

Solved the problem though - I saved two weeks worth, drove up to 017 and scattered his crap all over his porch and front lawn.
This angry inch Irish prick whined to the WC the next day and was told to clean his shit up, "you know that guy on 3rd watch is crazy and will keep delivering your shit to your home"...

Never found excessive amounts of debris in the car again.

Ususally the Jags who leave the car a mess and on empty are the same ones who have the imaculately clean new cars that are never dirty even during the winter.

Lets be realistic here. Today, I went for G/O, but had to get gas first, figured may as well get it washed. Not even trying to dog it either- 3 hours total!

I think they should have assigned, personal take-home car for officers who work a beat. NOT for those inside hidding from the streets. Then you would have people bidding for a spot in the district.

Hey SCC, this is a great topic for most of the dirty people to read and be shamed for!

Squad! Can I get an event number, please!

Read on!

Most of these bozos would be real pissed if I had left junk, garbage, sticky candy wrappers, half drank pop cups and such in their BMW's, Cadillacs, Toyotas and Lexus cars that some of these inconsiderate, moronic Police Officers drive to work!

Then the way these goofs drive these cars are just pathetic, too!

Some Officers laugh and shrug it off and call Ford cars junk!

Hey ASSHOLES, how would you like it if I drive your personal car over curbs doing 30 mph! You would be trying to start a fight with me!

Let's NOT even get into the assholes that smoke in squad cars and leave ashes all over the place! Then when you roll the window down to get a breeze you look like a snow globe going down the road with all the ashes flying around! People who smoke in squad cars, I hope choke in their own shit, too!

Did anyone mention spare tires? I mean the ones in the trunk. Not the ones under the gunbelts.

Here is a suggestion DUGAN. Don't tell me you or one of your minions does not religiously read this blog. You would be a fool if you didn't.

SUNDAY VEHICLE INSPECTIONS: Do Not have them immediately after Roll Call. Conduct them at about NOON, or when the vehicles are turned over to the 3rd Watch crew. This will give the Second Watch time to take their vehicle (maybe more than one vehicle) to the carwash and the fuel depot. Then have the vehicles at an outdoor rollcall in front of the station or in the sally port and really look at them.

This will force the vehicles to be washed and cleaned out at least once a week.

Stay safe, the Department will never do this as a whole, it makes too much sense.

Suddenly, cars are dirty, small maintenance issues are ignored and beat tags are a rare commodity.

The fact is, and I'm not saying I agree with it, when you have the same car consistently, you keep it cleaner, you notice those little 'off' sounds that mean engine or brake trouble and the damned beat tag doesn't go missing (intentionally or not) on a daily basis because IT STAYS ON THE CAR.

--YOU Are SOOOO Right! Every day I have to make a paper beat tag now that the cars are being changed daily. People filled up for the next guy and MOST; not All cleaned up the inside of the car.

Mnay years ago, when I was a detective working mids,we had a problem with the day crew who regularly used the same car we did; they refused to wash or service the car. Apparently, it got int he way of their laundromats business. So first we tried the maxwell street wrappers and onions stuffed in the steering wheel,and that failed to elicit a response.
We waited for a nice hot summer evening, just before our 3 day weekend; about 4 AM we stopped at a 24hour grocery and bought a pound of frozen shrimp. Before we parked the cara in the lot, we popped both front wheel covers and put half of the shrimp in each cover and carefully replaced them. When we came back from our weekend, the car was washed, the interior cleaned, and a note was found (from the day crew) admitting defeat.

"management"...that's part of the problem, a big part.

Managers handle things, leaders handle people. "Bosses" bring the two skills together.

We now have managers, few leaders, certainly fewer "bosses".
We have people in positions, who have authority, but don't know how to use it, certainly not how to use it wisely.

We have people in positions of responsibility who have never had the experience of a street education.

"Boss" is a title of respect on this job, did you ever hear anyone say, "OK Manager."

There are some managers that protocol demands that you call Sir or Ma'am. But, all things considered I would never call Dugan "Boss".

I used to be in Unit 153 and now I am working in 018 of my own choice. Boys, the grass is definitely greener on this side. The antics of Lt PK are not missed around here that's for sure.
I have peace of mind and I don't even miss the 10 hr schedule. Seriously boys, MSF is a sinking ship with a pitiful excuse for a Lt trying to be the top dog. Save yourselves and return to beat patrol. Tell him to fuck off as you submit the PAR form! God Bless the old SOS!

Loving 018!!!!


We are glad to have you. All are welcome -- even ex-priests. PLENTY of openings for any other lost sheep on the "elite" Michigan Avenue and Entertainment Details. Don't let the zero openings on the last vacancy announcement discourage you -- make that clouted phone call TODAY!!

Thanks to all the tobacco chewers in MSF. you guys are sickening, throwing your juices all over the cars, Big joke, Huh, wait, the other shoe is going to fall and besides tearing up the cars like a bunch of gel haired little bitches who can't grow up, when the Sgts start banging you guys, maybe then you will keep these lowly cars clean for the rest of us who want to do the right thing. We have a good crew od LTS. here and they have just about had it with you guys. we are not getting any new cars so grow up. I don't chew or smoke but I do keep the cars clean with my partner.
