Headquarter Rumors

HQ rumors abound!
  • The summer festival season must be upon the horizon. HQ has started switching the day off groups of the weekenders to cover the non-existent manpower shortages;
  • Informational Services is going to be disbanded and the work farmed out to a connected Shortshanks relative. Just what we need;
  • Direct from the fans in the Patrol Division - Special Employment revamp on the way - all based on activity numbers.
Hey, it's rumors. What do you expect?

Special employment based on activity, eh?

Hey, boss! What's my quota that I need in order to work special employment? What's that? I'm sorry. I didn't hear you. Yes, boss, I asked what is my QUOTA for activity in order to get special employment? Also, could you put that in writing please.

P.S. Hey, you detectives,I guess you better take out some parkers, movers and contact cards with you on that follow-up, or witness interview. Can't work special without activity.

What a bunch of jags! Very equitable and fair system you got there you 35th/Mich brain children.

I hope all those dogs stay at HQ. They are no help to us on the street. "Back to the Streets" is a complete joke. These people dont even know how to work a radio. They just drive around and dodge jobs all day long. They do more harm than good on the street. Stay inside, dummies.
I also really hope that special employment could be based on an officer's activity. Reward the workers that have earned it. Operation Safe City has become a complete joke. Its all do nothings with 20+ years on the job who have been inside for most of their career. The entire Safe City program will soon be gone due to these lazy slobs. The Lt. in charge has to beg these people to just drive around all night and not to pull over and nap, and these people still cry. They dont bring in activity because they dont know how to be the police. They wont even do a few contact cards. Operation Safe City will not be around too much longer because of this. Its federally funded, but when they open the books they will see that no work is getting done.
With 14 years on the job, I finally got a Safe City day last period after 5 periods of being rejected, and I only got it because somebody cancelled and I got called of the list. The female that I got stuck working with didnt know how to put a battery in the radio, she had no clue on how to work the PDT (and it was an old black PDT), she had no clue that we had to pump our own gas, and she didnt know how to turn the mars lights on. I would have felt safer if my 8 year old son was riding shotgun with his slingshot. The first job we rode on was a burglary in progress with an open door, and as we pulled up I looked at her and she was pale white and trembling. She never went 10 feet from the squad car as I went into the house alone.
I talked to a few other working coppers that night who all had similar stories about there clueless partners. Why should these people be rewarded with special employment?
It's an officer safety issue. Let these cowards stay inside and retire so that the real police dont get killed.

I know that this female copper will probably read this because all she talked about all night was about how she reads this blog religiously. But, I really dont care because she is nothing but overpaid secretary with a gun.

Report: Illinois worst when dealing with public pensions

February 17, 2010 11:00 PM |


No state has done worse than Illinois in setting aside funds to pay the pension and health care benefits promised to retirees in public sector jobs, according to a study released today by the Pew Center for the States.

That dubious distinction bestowed by the non-partisan Washington-based think tank weighs heavily over Illinois's current budget mess that has left Gov. Pat Quinn and lawmakers with a coming record $13 billion deficit in the state's main checkbook to try and close by summer.

So in other words, nothing has changed. As far as getting special employment, wasn't that tied to the new and improved Employee Evaluations? If I remember correctly (and lately that's been the exception), if you score anything but meets expectations on your evaluation your chances of getting special is curtailed or just right out denied?

She should be fired. A useless waste of taxpayer $$$, and unable or unwilling to back up a working PO. The same story as the female mentioned on Ispeeved. That useless ISP chickenshit woman resulted in the death of a citizen. A complete waste of a star, a gun and a squad car. Dump these dogs and hire someone else, such a veteran returning from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan.

sorry o.t.

In regards to the channel 7 news story about the off duty cop and the shooting, it's nice to see the news do an impartial piece. I don't know the officer, whether or not he is a tool, which some people have posted, I just hope the real truth comes out. When I first heard the parents were suing the officer, I thought, here we go again. Another family trying to cash in on the city.

After watching the news I was impressed by the dignity shown by the parents, especially the father. They aren't out for blood, they just want the medical coverage they feel there son deserves. As the father said at the end of the segment, he doesn't think it was a suicide attempt or an intentional shooting.

It made me sick to my stomach how the insurance company already tried to weasel there way out of paying for the coverage. Hopefully, this case will be resolved and the victim recovers fully.

The book, "The Choirboys," by Joseph Wambaugh, should be mandatory reading in the academy. Sure, it shows all the fun, laughter, and wild stuff that happens when cops get together to go boozing, but it also shows in the end, the senseless tragedy's that can happen when we have too much to drink. Sorry about the long post. Everybody please be careful out there.

I don't believe anyone should have to bust their ass on their day off HOWEVER..
We we work "Operation Safe City"; the lieutenant states that the P.O.s should come in at the end of the night with SOMETHING..
as little as maybe some parkers and some contact cards.
Hell all you have to do is park for a while and and make some shit up!!!
The government audits this program and they decide if more federal money should be used to fund it.

Sure enough.. when everyone comes in at the end of the night there are always a few that have NOTHING for activity.

Last week two F/1 coppers who were about 80 pounds overweight came in 20 minutes early for checkoff and stated "we couldn't find anything".

I SAY:
Get rid of these do nothing pieces of shit dogs and let the guys who have families to support get some days.

I heard it wasn't special employment but it was "safe streets", you know the time and a half gig that you need 20 plus years to get. It seems that the vets would show up and take the money but do little else. Can't say that I blame them but its not gonna last. By the way, precedent has already been set, roadside safety missions are time and a half and based solely on activity. Good luck with the grievance.

Putting Cozzi in prison for his wrong is totally unjust.

This is similar to the military & our leaders who are in the process of putting the Navy Seals on trial for punching the Taliban leader in the stomach upon his capture. It was an emotional incident. He should have been shot dead during his capture.

These incidents do not deserve the actions now being taken by the prosecutors or our leaders.

I agree seniority is a reason to get special but it is not a good reason. There really should be some kind of standard or something. If you don't want to work the streets regularly then you shouldn't be able to do it for special.

As far as Detectives.... if they can't make O.T. (through court or ext of tour)on their regular job, then they aren't very good at being a detective.

Just because you got a bad partner who works inside does not mean all of the inside people are bad. I have worked special with a hell of a lot of dogs who are district people. "I work in Fillmore!" Woo Hoo, big deal and there aint no Fillmore anymore. Trust me there are as many cowards working outside as inside.

Ive been in patrol for the majority of my career.. trust me, these guys come and go. Everyone will get a perk and some people dont deserve them but to get jealous is childish. Be a man and stop acting like a little girl. jealousy and whining is supposed to be something a chicago police officer never does... or at least never did.

WOW! 14 years on, eh? Should have known. Had to wipe the salt dust off my computer screen as I read your post.

Just remember junior, seniority is a straight forward issue. It is not subject to the many interpretations such as your activity.

To decide whether or not an officer is allowed to work special based on their activity, the department will have to provide a baseline to follow. But if they do that, then you are talking quotas. And they will NEVER admit to having quotas because that is a can of worms that even ShortShanks does not want opened.

Just look at the new evaluations that everyone has to go through. How do you compare the activity of a P.O. who works a beat car and a P.O. who works the front office?

You can't evaluate them on the same issues.

Chicago has openings for two good men or women

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Help wanted: registered voter with a conscience for position on the Chicago City Council. Salary $110,556 a year. Ex-felons need not apply.

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley decided to take a different approach to fill two vacancies on the city's 50-member city council, posting a notice on the city's website listing qualifications for the job.

Candidates should be registered voters, have lived in the ward for a least a year and provide three letters of recommendation attesting to their community involvement. No current politicians, tax delinquents or anyone convicted of any "infamous crime, bribery, perjury or other felony" need apply.

One vacancy was created when the previous office-holder pleaded guilty to illegally accepting favors from a developer.

The aldermanic appointments will be the mayor's 34th and 35th, and he has indicated he is fed up with the high rate of malfeasance in the council.

"You've got to start somewhere," Daley spokesman Lance Lewis said. "We want to encourage residents who are interested to apply."

To all you people out there talking about making special based on activity what is the criteria? If you get a chick like Missy (I know shes fake but we all know someone like her), our resident parking guru, who writes hundreds of parkers does that mean she gets it before the Officer who only recovers one gun a period? Please define activity. Is running after pookie for a dime bag activity? Is locking up drinkers activity? What about ANOVS? Some districts all you do is go from job to job and when you run after pookie you take yourself off the street making your fellow Officers answer more jobs.

At least Seniority is something tangible. We all have a seniority date and will get time on the job. Its the only fair way for those without clout. If you have a better system by all means post it.

Another rumor gathering steam on the 5th floor at Headquarters is that RayRay is being positioned to become the next commander of MSF.
RayRay is currently in SWAT school as one of the new Sgts. selected.
Word is that RR will be meritoriously promoted to Lt. in the next class, and that shortly after that, will bump out the Old Man commander who is keeping the seat warm for him. The old man is very close to mandatory retirement age anyway, so there's no real loss of brains there. Watch and see it happen before the end of this year.

35th St. Warrior says: Seniority Rules, if you don't have enough STFU!! By the way I've never worked or put in for any form of special and am damn proud of it. Have worked in different districts and places and on a bad/dog day of mine would do more work than 75% of you bad rough and tough "real police street coppers". Notice I didn't claim 100%. I'm realistic. Hell yous guys couldn't tell the difference b/w a "street copper" and a 15 year old, who worked half a tour with a partner before being outed. I'm sure you could spot criminals (sarcasm). All I ever hear from my former co-workers in the district is that I am lucky and that they hope that they could get an inside spot. Every copper, if asked, would chose to work a straight day M-F tour, if you say you wouldn't , your lying!! Thank You and that is all. 1 more day and then I'm off S/S. Enjoy and back each other up and stay safe.

OK let me get this straight you want others to feel sorry for him because as you say "He drank too much and did something stupid." I would say shooting someone in the back of the head is a little more than being drunk and doing something stupid. Remind me to never go out drinking with you. You might drink too much and do something stupid too!! ASSHAT

I never worked with Pat Kelly and I don't know if he was a tool. I also have no clue what happened that night in his home and I am not going to judge him until the truth comes out. I just watched that news clip and even the victim's father said he didn't believe Pat shot his son. How can we throw one of our own under the bus before the truth comes out? If he did it, it seems to me like he would have been locked up for the shooting. He wasn't. I also think it sucks that the news media can put a police officer's house and address on the news- it's not safe. I just think we throw each other under the bus too quickly sometimes. Pat may have liked his cocktails but that doesn't make him a guy who tried to kill his high school buddy. It just doesn't add up.

If that's the truth, that's too bad. Ed is a decent guy; won't comment on his choice of a mate, but none of us are perfect! Another good Cmdr bites the dust.
WEISel/Masters, you should be ashamed of what you've done to destroy this Dept. At least Ed got in enough time to get the exempt pension. A lot of those who have bit the dust before him weren't as fortunate. The only good thing out of this is, When WEISel leaves early next year, his wife will be joining Ed in prompt retirement! The next Supt., whoever it is, will hopefully have enough sense to get rid of all of the executive command of this Dept.
They've let us all down with their cowardice in standing up to the WEISel, Masters and Shortshanks.

Take it easy warrior. When my partner and I were in a certain district, we were scolded by po's because we were coding the jobs out before they got there because they wanted to dog the jobs out. We really dodged that foot chase involving a PSMV and after catching the driver of the car, we had the audacity to give the arrest to the beat guys. What dogs we were. I laugh to myself when I arrive on jobs with tough guys like yourself when I work back to the street because you dont even acknowledge our existence even when we are there to help you out. Next time, if you're a man enough, you can tell me what a douche bag I am to my face, but dont worry I'd laugh that off too because you are just an insecure, angry person that I actually feel sorry for.

Sadly enough, I'd still haul ass over to your 10-1 to help you out.

Are we supposed to applaud you because you would go lights and siren to a 10-1, or because you work the streets 4 weeks a year? What a typical "inside do-nothing" comment! It is called DOING YOUR JOB! If you cant handle it, do us all a favor and retire or quit. And you had the "audacity" of giving a beat car your PSMV arrest? Are you kidding me? Are you sure you werent just scared shitless that you were gonna have to do some work for a while and maybe even stay a little late? Do you even know how to process an arrest? You should come to realize that your inside job could be done by an uneducated civilian with absolutely no police experience and don't give us the excuse that you earned it because most of the do-nothings I've come into contact with have been do-nothings their entire career. And maybe the coppers on the street refuse to "acknowledge your existence" because your kind does us on the street more harm than good. You do-nothings are one of the main causes of the bad morale. You get in the ears of these fresh PPO's and convince them that this department is garbage and that being a working copper will only get you fired or in jail - another typical do-nothing comment. You people try to bonify your lazyness by using the stories of the few coppers who were wronged by the Dept (i.e. Cozzie).
I know plenty of guys with 20 plus years on the job who are still out there being the police. And they aren't doing it to bring revenue for the city like you salty do-nothings claim. They are doing it because they like making arrests, they need the court money for their families, and because they realize that bad people need to go to jail.
Now go back to your paper pushing and pencil sharpening.

I think thats great....Working officers should be given FIRST choice of Special Employment....and everything else for that matter....The DOGS should get NOTHING....Why should they get time and a half to sit their lazy asses in a car and do nothing but stuff their filthy pie holes and come in with nothing?? BRAVO to the department on making this change....hope it's true!! Next please impliment that standard to tact teams and units....that would weed out plenty of dead wood who are just there to sample the oxygen... ALL Units should be based on activity!! ALL UNITS..... You will get more bang for your buck.... Pray that this happens!!

Ah, to be young and stupid! Listen kid, all the hard work and activity means squat if you don't have clout. I've been doing this for over 20 years and I have seen the attempts at change just like this one. And you know what? Nothing changes!

You can work your ass off and you'll still get dumped. If you don't have a phone call or a relative in a high ranking position you are going to be disappointed real fast. You may think you are super-cop, bringing in the numbers to impress the bosses. But guess what? Look behind you. See that long line? Those are other P.O.'s who think they can do the job better than you.

You may think you are God's gift to the department, but there will always be someone else out there who thinks you are one of those dogs.

So if you think seniority should be done away with and everything based on one's activity, just remember you ain't getting any younger. You will slow up as you get older or (god forbid) as a result of an IOD.

Then as you limp your tired ass to work and wonder how come YOU ain't getting any special because you used to run and gun, and then have to listen to all those YOUNGER coppers snickering at you and wondering why you just don't retire, will you still have the same attitude as you do now?

When you make arrests. .especially good ones, you are making a major impact on the lives of your arrestees! That means they come up with stories that are so well put together that they seem like well written novels.
There used to be times when these allegations were investigated and found to be the BS that they really were. Now a days the cop is guilty until proven innocent. That is very sad.
And God forbid if some boss doesnt liek you and gives a persuasive push to the investigation.
I know-it happened to several of us !
To go in the press and say that you want people and bosses to take chances and be aggressive and do police work sounds very good. But how about backing us when we do that work!

If there was no 55 and out there is no way he would go back to Captain. He was not treated shitty. He played the system and between his pension and his free health care he is way ahead of 99 percent of us on CPD. And we will have to pay for him with our pension and health contributions.

Sorry slicksleeves but Ed was paying into the pension fund when you were still popping zits off your mommies bathroom mirror, as he got promoted he paid in more, so you aren't paying anything; he made a smart move, he sees where this department is headed and has the time to leave, he is smart to do what he did...

News Flash - Safe City is a federally funded Overtime option. This means that the it does not have to offered as "special employment". The Department can assign this overtime in any fashion they see fit. Prior to this year "Operation Safe City" was actually "Operation Safe Summer" and was assigned as voluntary overtime limited to the previous Bureau of Strategic Deployment. It was difficult to fill all the positions on a weekly basis with a limited number of bodies assigned to BSD. When BSD was dissolved last year the units were absorbed into the Bureau of Patrol. Since it broadened the base of personnel it was opened up to all of patrol. This had the adverse affect of diminished activity. Now the department has decided to re-evaluate the situation to insure the federal money remains. Bottom line, the department will do what it wants with this program, my best guess is that it will be removed from the realm of "special employment" and returned to the "volutary overtime" status. Kiss that fat check byebye.

Real nice....kick the poor bastard in the head during the worse time in his life. Like many of us weren't assholes who drank too much and did stupid shit when we were young. I almost hope this is a personal grudge cause if you don't feel a little sympathy for this poor bastard you are a poor excuse.

2/18/2010 10:37:00 AM

kicking him the head during the worse (sic) time in his life????? Hey, he might be hitting a rough patch BUT ITS NOTHING compared to his buddy in the hospital with the F%$king BULLET IN HIS HEAD! Drunken A-Hole who should have learned a long time ago that he needed to either change his BS attitude or quit drinking altogether....or both. And yes, I have done stupid stuff but not like this dipshit. None of my friends ever ended up shot in the back of the head with my gun. I have owned and used guns for 38 years and no "accidental" head shots in my house. I don't play with my guns when I'm drunk and I don't let my buddies play with my guns either. It's simple common sense firearm safety. If you're going to own a gun show some f#@&cking responsibility and don't be just another asswipe the anti-gunners cans use to attack the 2nd amendment. Just think of your family/friends not ending up shot in the head as an added bonus.

SPECIAL EMPLOYMENT IS BASED ON ONES SENORITY NOT ON PRODUCTIVITY. IF THE BOSSES DON’T KNOW THAT BY NOW, WE ARE IN WORSE SHAPE THAN ANY OF US HAS THAUGHT. THE UNION BETTER NIP THIS IN THE ASS RIGHT AWAY. OH YEA THAT’S RIGHT OUR UNION BENDS TO EVERY WISH THE CITY WANTS . WHAT A JOKE

Not with safe city it isnt. You know that little list on the side that only "gang specialists" can work.......u know the guys with 3, 5 years on gettin 3 to 4 days of it a month while guys with 12 plus years cant even get ONE day. Yeah, thats really done by senority. Maybe the FOP should get its head outta its ass and look at the greivences being filed by guys reguarding this. Its absolutely unreal that this is still going on.

I know plenty of guys with 20 plus years on the job who are still out there being the police. And they aren't doing it to bring revenue for the city like you salty do-nothings claim. They are doing it because they like making arrests, they need the court money for their families, and because they realize that bad people need to go to jail.
Now go back to your paper pushing and pencil sharpening.

Seniority is absolute. The city better expect a huge fight if they select special employment by any criteria other than seniority. Any change would need to be negotiated with the FOP and FOP will never give up seniority on Special Employment. That will be another flurry of grievances, ULP, and an eventual arbitration decision.

Ed O D was a good guy at one time. He got sucked into the political system. After all how do you think he made it up the food chain.

People that knew him years ago knew him to be a good man. As time went on he did what he needed to do to move up. North side clout Mauer and crew.

He has thrown his share of people under the bus for the sake of clout. The old boy network.

This is what is wrong with the merit system. It ruins good men and women. Stay true during your career.

Hope he has a great retirement but not that great a loss.

-----------------------------------

See its people like you on this job that think it's no big deal to lose someone like Ed until a new guy takes his place and you read about it all over this blog. Nice attempt at the end to save yourself about enjoy your retirement. You’re a fool! So he knew people on this job to get promoted! ahhh I think that's the only way you get promoted!(above Lt) It’s obvious you never worked for him, he is a good guy (good guy cause no matter what you say he has the knowledge). I know it's hard to look at the BIG picture cause your to busy looking at yourself, but when you lose someone with 30 plus yrs your losing the knowledge to handle things correctly. You get a new boss with 15-20yrs that is so busy kissing ass that he thinks giving you a day for a court deviation is a must! (This is only an example) Big picture remember!

I'm sorry but I hope this an attempt at dry humor and not real sympathy for the guy. At some point maybe some of my coworkers will understand that drinking and guns are a bad combination. Leave the pistol locked up when you're having cocktails. And I don't know what kind of shit you did when you were young and drunk but HE SHOT A PERSON IN THE HEAD! That's not the drunken foolishness that my friends and I ever got ourselves into.

2/18/2010 07:46:00 PM

First off, Channel 7's Chuck G. is a goof who will sell lies to anyone who will listen because the majority of people don't see the things police officers see and experience and can't tell that Chuck is just full of shit. A master at one sided journalism.

Secondly, I don't know PK that well. Crossed paths just once, not impressed. He really is his own worst enemy. Get help with the firewater.

Thirdly and most importantly, you previous posters have fed into the rumors that he shot this guy. NOT TRUE. Until this guy wakes up and tell his side of the story (truthfully, I hope.), PK is innocent. All evidence so far is telling us that this guy has some mental issues as well as some relationship problem. Remember, you're the police and you're supposed to relay on the existing facts. God Bless.

Off topic..........There's going to be a new television series on FOX. No title yet but it stars a Chicago Police Department Chief who is a civilian and plays police on a part time basis. If Steven Segal can do it for New Orleans why can't Masters do it for Chicago. Besides carrying a pistol he just went to Shore Galleries and picked up an M4. Even though there is a city ordinance and a Cook County law prohibiting civilians from owning an assault rifle. Masters may be taking O'Keefe's place and then on to the Superintendents job.

Us "old-timers" have EARNED their seniority putting up with so much bullshit and busted our asses on this job it isn't even funny. What you are going through right now we went through a lot longer than you. So when YOU have put in the time that others have and put up with the bullshit for what is almost a LIFETIME (20 + years), then you will understand and appreciate what seniority is.

Since I have never been fortunate enough to work downtown or inside at any district I have had the pleasure to work at, I found the attempt by the previous poster to garner sympathy for not having a full weekend for 8 months mildly amusing, hence my response.

But I'm sure if you would have taken time to get off that bar stool and sober up before you logged on to this fine example of a blog ( SCC, I mean that sincerely), you would have seen all that.

Oh, as far as taking my 4/2's and shoving it up my ass sideways, thanks for the reminder. Your reference to my nether regions reminded me that I am due for my annual prostate exam. Thanks buddy!

And, yes, I do have over 20 years.

As for who taught me how to use a computer, well I will admit that I am by no means an expert but it was all pretty much self taught.

In fact, one of the first things I learned about computers is that they have this neat little feature called a SPELL CHECKER. You might want to learn how to use it. If you had, then you would have known that jagoff has only 1 g in it.

Like I said before...Who gives a flying rats ass about any captain on this gig. Ed O'Donnel or anybody else can retire and fade away forever. C-Ya, and good fucking bye. Any captain I ever worked for was an out and out son of a bitch who would sell out a subordinate in a heartbeat to save his own skin. The best shirt in this dept. is blue, for they have all the fun and considerable less stress than whiteshirts who get to back bite and plot against each other and play polititical fuck-fuck and then die a well earned horrible stress filled death.

SCC, can you PLEASE verify if Masters purchased weapons at Shore Galleries and if he is allowed to carry a gun against the city ordinance and a Cook County law prohibiting civilians from owning an assault rifle.

Sure! We'll just run over to Gun Registration, violate any number of Rules and laws on company time to track down a rumor!

Or we'll demand to go into a private business and examine their books based on the vague suspicion clause of the Constitution.

Have you really thought this through? We mean really really?

To all you whiners out there with not enough seniority to get Special Employment, your turn will come. I used to get jealous of all the old-timers too and wished they would leave so I could move up the ladder. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and all of a sudden I have 24 years on and I am the old-timer! Us "old-timers" have EARNED their seniority putting up with so much bullshit and busted our asses on this job it isn't even funny. What you are going through right now we went through a lot longer than you. So when YOU have put in the time that others have and put up with the bullshit for what is almost a LIFETIME (20 + years), then you will understand and appreciate what seniority is. Until then you need to STFU and wait your turn...

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
JEALOUS ???? Are you kidding me? Do you actually think that we wish we were like you lazy, big-mouth, know-it-all, do-nothings? I hope that I never turn into the likes of you people. And most of you guys haven't earned shit. The old timers that have earned it are still out there working, not crying about everything.

Well, good correct spelling would be nice. You wouldn't believe the shit that has started in this world over a misunderstanding because someone, somewhere could not express themselves correctly.


If you bothered to pick up a book now and then instead of beer bottle you might be surprised and learn something.

Oh, it also sounds like you are due for your annual eye exam, since you obviously could not see the other topics of conversation that I did reply to.

In your case you would probably hit the medical to do so. But hey! I'm not one to judge.

Good luck in your endeavors. I hope you get what you want out of this job. But I truly doubt it. You sound like the type that would bitch no matter what was handed to you.

To the whining IAD sergeant too fucking bad your secrets out maybe you'll have to do some real police work. And to bad that the agent didn’t have the balls to say something sooner. We all know that the sergeants are the ones that stick it to you by making the penalty suggestions not the agents. And if the agent that is retiring is the one that helped me and my partner out then I’m sorry to see her go, at least you knew you were getting a fair investigation with her not like IPRA.

If you are a "standup boss" you are probably very heavy and connected! This in itself does not make you a "great boss!" These bosses can get "things done" that the normal schmuck could not!

I know why that young buck thought it was ok...

I see it all the time on private cars owned by PO's...and Sgt's...and Lt's...and Capt's...and Exempts.

Thus the reason I gave you the free heads up.

WHY would anyone want to have an FOP medallion showing ANYWHERE on their personal vehicle today? They offer NO HELP when it comes to parking tickets. Civilians will ignore them, and I've seen pleny of coppers write them on cars that have them openly displayed. Why let your neighbors or bad guys know anything about what your profession is than they need to know? It's never made sense to me to ever put one on my car. What the public and your neighbors don't know about you can only make you safer. Think about it.
