Summer Crime Strategy

  • A new Chicago police rapid-response initiative will put block-by-block computer analysis into the hands of officers to prevent sporadic summer violence like the kind that left seven people dead and 18 wounded last week, Superintendent Jody Weis said.

    The plan, expected to kick off next week, will rely on computer data to pinpoint city blocks where violence is brewing, Weis said. That information would then be quickly relayed to strategic response units that would saturate the hot spots to stop violence, Weis said at a news conference Tuesday.

Wow. It sounds like a cross between Summer Mobile and Special Operations. So we have three citywide task forces right now (TRU, MSF, GEU) and now they're going to strip Patrol once again to field a fourth mobile force?

This is going to go exactly like the camera experiment. Crime will be driven around the corners, out of sight and into areas it hasn't appeared before just to avoid the hassles, but when someone is determined to kill someone else or shoot up a disputed dope spot, they're going to do it regardless of the police actions.

This looks more like a tacit admission that we can't stop the shootings, we can only react after the fact.

Without the 3,100+ nonexistent police officers there is no possible way to reduce the upswing in violent crime.

Keep putting bandaids on gaping wounds. You can temporarily tide the loss of blood but eventually the victim bleeds out and dies.

The writing is on the walls, be careful, be safe!

I couldn't figure out if this is was going to be ANOTHER new unit or are they going to use officers from MSF to do this crap? We really, really cannot afford to fill another unit.

The problem is utilizing the units we have now! MSF, TRU, GEU, SAT are all being utilized incorrectly. There needs to be (1) unit that targets areas all over the city. Not multiple units working to achieve the same goal, but one hand doesn't know what the other is doing? That's not how it works.

And stop with saturating one area with 50+ officers. Send 10 or so officers to each district that has these "hot spots."

Whoever wrote the following on 501, well put. I'm surprised it was posted. Very funny. Thank you.


Since you have already made use of your contacts with the Department of Justice, perhaps a joint task force of some sort is in order that would expedite the long overdue arrival of federal corruption charges against the emperor you call your boss.
At this point, due in no small measure to an insulting contract process and equally offensive results of same, the only way you will garner the respect of us pawns rests in the unlikely prospect of you one day putting him in handcuffs and helping to land him where he deserves before the certain fate of some future heart attack robs us all of the pleasure.

If you think about it, if you are eligible to retire, there is no reason for you not to. The raises the arbitrator gave are now all under 3% from 2009 on. If you retire now, you can get a 3% COLA.

Maybe its just another way to rid the department of old timers.

Hmmmmm....

We are already short, they gave us the 55/health care coverage and now this. If I were to guess, with the payroll this short, throw the remain officers a bone while the city goes after our pension, maybe make is a 401K/social security deal.

Is there anything computers can't do?

Take a step back, how did the wheel gun police ever solve a crime without video? Try getting a felony approved without it now.

I'm not part of that generation, but it must have been a whole different world. One radio, in the car, while your on the the 10 floor of a project building.

The more this job gets legitimized, the more the citizens a suffer and the shithead wins.

From 501

My partner and I recently submitted a request for a copy of in car camera video that would be indisputable evidence to convict the offender in traffic court. The request was denied saying it is up to the ASA to request video. I'm not sure what the policy is but if an officer requests a video to assist in court room testimony and it is denied, how can the argument be made that the cameras purpose is anything other than to document mistakes made by officers? In my experience no ASA will request a video for traffic court, but I believe if an officer brought video in for a specific cases, the video would be used.

Is this the best initiative they came up with?

I don’t blame Weis He can’t know what’s happening if he is new like the people he is surrounding himself with.

Look to see people in HQ and other Spots will have less than 15 yrs and maybe 1 to 2 yrs street experience in a slow district doing desk duty.
How can they advise him with NO Knowledge?

The Older knowledgeable intelligence are being shut up and only vent frustrations in this venue. How is he to know how to handle these events, He’s new too! Bad advice makes ineffective decisions. He started off with change with good intentions but where did he get his list from, the people who would have never made it on the streets? I do feel if he is making this large salary that everyone is scared to question it is unacceptable for gangs to roam our streets like they have a license to kill!

If the old timers with knowledge were able not handicapped by being judged by unknowledgeable supervision most of this crime would be suppressed.

Good God! By the end of the year there will be NO Patrol Bureau. Maybe that's the new strategy. We eliminate the Districts. Then there's no back log or RAP. We get rid of 25 Cmdrs, save the city a shitload of money, and just patrol anywhere we want running from hot spot to hot spot as the blackberry tells us. After all, why have cops in the District? Every time J-Fled has a press conference he lauds MSF, TRU and GEU. Obviously, District cops - patrol and tact - don't do anything. So here's my idea J-Fled. Bend over, place your head firmly between your legs and then kiss your ass good-bye! Bye bye! Sooner than later.

Guys just go out and do the best you can but don't sacrafice safety. Use your heads. All 99 cars should not respond to any kind of disturbance without backup. Insist on the backup. Don't make stops alone. If you see some dickheads that should be stopped call for backup before stopping. If there is no one to assist you keep on driving. Why sacrafice your safety for a city that doesn't care about your safety. A shit raise is one thing, but a city to purposely expose it's officers to unsafe conditions is pathetic. Make sure you collect your check to support you and your family and get home safely. Fuck Shitcago!

This is the end around of redistricting. That is all. They take the manpower from one district and put it in another without consent of the aldercreatures...Been happening for a long time (Edge Missions, gang loitering missions, task force, etc.)

This idea is similar to that of the Surgical Strike Team missions that started last year in Area 2. Area two saturation teams, some district tact teams, Narcotics, TRU, came in and saturated a 4x4 block area chosen by the analyst. After the mission is completed CAPS people came in and distributed flyers and requested other needed city services like street cleaning and tree trimming.

Same concept but a different name.. Not bad if they still use 10-15 officers without creating a new unit.

Be careful- Bcz this is targeted patrol on these hot spots..
Assault incidents on the police will be more likely than general patrol procedures. Be safe!

This might work IF...

#1. These teams were split up into two man cars and assigned to focus on particular beats in districts.

#2. They were to answer all calls for service in that particular beat so that they would become familiar with the people and the long term problems of that small area.

#3. They would be responsible for case reporting and all enforcement activities during their tour of duty.

#4. They would be responsible to a chain of command through the district in which they were assigned.

Hey, Wait a Minute....

That describes a DISTRICT BEAT CAR!

What a Brilliant Idea!

Last Exempt meeting they were told - 'what you have is what you are going to have. That's it.'

So we have approximately 20% less P.O.s on the street and they are being mismanaged! Hundreds of Officers spending their days behind computers or watching cameras instead of on the street.

Weis and his policy group apparently have never heard the words 'visible deterrent'. As a Beat cop, I have 8-12 blocks. I know the problems, the dope spots, even the future domestic families.

I used to have a lot of help to solve those problems, other Beat cars. Now I just run from job to job solving nothing. I'm watching the gangs run the streets because we have NO BEAT CARS to run the gangs.

If you ever worked the streets you would know the Beat cars need to be fully staffed first. Constant presence in the area PREVENTS crime. It is a simple solution....if you were ever a cop.

Lets be realistic, PROACTIVE Police Work takes care of MANY problems which eventually lead to such violence.
The FACT that hardly anyone is doing that anymore is the reason for most of the spikes in violence and shootings.
I live in 016 on the far North Side and I see first hand what I hope is not the epidemic citywide. I stopped an Officer, not identifying myself as an Officer, and asked him to address a group of M/1's smoking Pot in a car nearby. He told me that he was on the way to something and couldn't do it. When I got to work I ran a UH on him and saw that he was assigned 2 jobs all day and assisted on Z E R O. Neither job he was assigned was within 3 hours of my seeing him.
If THIS is what I am dealing with in 016 of all places, what do they expect south of Belmont.

He's also offering scholarships for his CPS dropouts under a new vocational training program.

Mayor Daley has embraced Huberman's creativity and suggested that the fire department defer their raises so that more children can be touched by the program.

CeaseFIRE lost out in their bid to manage the program, due to prior bouts of fiscal irregularity. Victor Reyes and Anne Burke have launched a new non-profit...It will operate as OpenFIRE and won't actually come into existence until the day after they've signed the contract.

Since there will be a finite number of video games supplied by the contract, (circa 10,000) vocational students not able to play will wait on the street corners closest to the inner-city section-8 arcades, selling "toe tags" as a way to raise money and awareness for the new fountain to be built to our beloved mayor.

It will be modeled after 'Mannekin Pis' - The famous fountain of the little boy urinating in Brussels. This time, a larger than life mayor will be hold a similar sized appendage and proceed to piss on the city of Chicago 24 hours a day.

Please get together on one issue. There are arguments posted that there are not enough officers on the street to implement an effective tactics so the violence will continue and increase, and arguments posted that it doesn't matter how many officers are on the street or what tactics they use, the violence will just continue and increase. They appear to be contradictory.
My personal feeling is that more blue shirts, assigned to the districts and to beats on a long term term basis, who know their beats and the players and what the hell is going on in their patch, is a more effective tactic than temporary saturations by special units. The special units can be useful, but are a luxury, and their manning should only come after the districts and beats are well staffed. Of course, your opinion may be different.

For those of you that would like a firm grasp of what the Police Pension Fund is like, watch Chicago Tonight (youtube link) featured below.  Former Chicago Tribune City Hall beat reporter, Dan Mihalopoulous has covered many pension fund stories including the Mayor's nephews' fund that received money from 4 city pension funds.  He now works for the newly created Chicago News Co Op that writes for the NY Times. 
 
The two links below summarize the City of Chicago's Elected Politicians' views toward our pension fund.  They do not care what the funding levels are, they merely want the campaign cash from the very same investment managers that they vote on.  Keep in mind, whatever money managers donate to the the City Treasurer, they typically donate 10X that amount of cash to Mayor Daley's warchest.  Pension Business in Chicago is huge.  Investment managers make huge profits off of OUR retirement money.
 
Chicago Tonight shows a very basic "circle" demonstrating how the City Treasurer operates on our pension fund.  This is at 1 minute and 46 seconds.  Mr. Mihalopoulous hits the nail on the head describing the City Treasurer's actions.
 
 
Chicago Tonight discussing City Treasurer Threatening Libel Suit Against Patrolmen's Rep. Mike Shields.  Take 6 minutes and watch this:

I guess it's just further liberal DemocRATic rhetoric for spreading the wealth (or lack of it).

Once police manpower (or lack of it) is DRASTICALLY shifted to the ghetto police districts, you can expect the non-ghetto districts to begin sharing in higher crime rates.

Daley is not just f*cking over the Police Dept. He is now expanding it to every citizen in every neighborhood in Chicago ! ! !

Is there anything computers can't do?

Take a step back, how did the wheel gun police ever solve a crime without video? Try getting a felony approved without it now.

I'm not part of that generation, but it must have been a whole different world. One radio, in the car, while your on the the 10 floor of a project building.

The more this job gets legitimized, the more the citizens a suffer and the shithead wins.

From 501

My partner and I recently submitted a request for a copy of in car camera video that would be indisputable evidence to convict the offender in traffic court. The request was denied saying it is up to the ASA to request video. I'm not sure what the policy is but if an officer requests a video to assist in court room testimony and it is denied, how can the argument be made that the cameras purpose is anything other than to document mistakes made by officers? In my experience no ASA will request a video for traffic court, but I believe if an officer brought video in for a specific cases, the video would be used.

To the moron who is still on probation who wrote this post are you serious? First off winning a traffic case usually means 1 thing.....money for the city or state. Who cares if you lose. If you need video to substaniate your testimony to somebody blowing a redlight you need help. Secondly, when the ASA feels they need video for something important like, let's say a DUI, something that can and does result in jail time they make the request for it. Quit acting like a citizen and start acting like a Policeman and remember there is more to this job than traffic tickets.

The funny part of your dumbness is that you equate not being able to bring a video to traffic court with the department using videos to document mistakes make by coppers......I mean come on now are you serious.

Get used to losing cases junior....wait till you and your partner fight with someone and the state nolle's your probable cause....Teamwork at it's finest!! Makes ya wonder if anybody reads the arrest narratives!!

Stay Safe

You young go-getter Hair Gels have fun and knock your socks off sucking the bosses asses for what they'll make you believe is another "elite" unit.

Spend the entire hot summer chasing the "usual suspects" around the ghetto for that dope pinch. Impound those cars and write those parkers and ANOVs and maybe those supervisors may hang out with you at Dugans for a few beers after work where s/he will regale your impressionable young mind with war stories that happened before they got on the job while claiming them as their own. All this done to further brainwash your feeble minds. Just don't step on your dick too hard, or that "boss" that says he "always got your back" will disappear faster than your measly retroactive check.

Me? I'll be enjoying the whole summer off again while having beers on the lake at the summer home with family and friends. BBQs, fishing, lazy afternoons on the pontoon, local concerts and festivals, 4th of July fireworks, etcetera, etcetera.

hey scc and others... take a look at this story from the chicago breaking news website.. now this is a classic.


"A man who received a parking ticket in Bartlett now faces criminal charges after authorities said he stained the citation with human excrement before mailing it back to the village.

Officials said Alexander J. Bailey, 22, of the 6N600 block of Medinah Road in Medinah, was arrested last week charged with disorderly conduct after a village hall employee found brown stains and a foul odor on the ticket and alerted police, authorities said. The original ticket was for $15, Bartlett police said.


Bailey also scrawled a note on the ticket indicated he'd used it to wipe himself, court documents said.

Bailey posted $500 bail and is due back in Cook County Circuit Court on June 11.

"Is this the best initiative they came up with?

I don’t blame Weis He can’t know what’s happening if he is new like the people he is surrounding himself with."

They/He can come up with MUCH better. I get a chance to talk with some exempts, long time REAL POLICE OFFICERS, and many of them are tearing their hair out mainlining Zantac because he doesn't listen to them.

This goof was warned about all kinds of mistakes in advance, including the Cozzi incident.

"The Older knowledgeable intelligence are being shut up and only vent frustrations in this venue."

You got that almost right, but some also talk to the people they work with. With well over twenty years on and a few other factors, I thank God my guys listen and have kept safe. Sometimes, you ALMOST have to act like Jody and his playmates don't exist.

"He started off with change with good intentions but where did he get his list from,(?)"

To this I will reply BULLSHIT!

I didn't know about the Joe Airhardt incident until not too long ago. I can't help but think that that was a factor that made Daley pick him. If he could leave a cop bleed, you get the picture. Good intentions and his Things to Do List, How about CUT COSTS, so Daley can spend money on his pall, so no promotions, so no contract, so no hiring. That's his list.

Stay safe, we need to get rid of Daley, J-Fled and his Crew, and then I've got my own list of things to do.

The problem is utilizing the units we have now! MSF, TRU, GEU, SAT are all being utilized incorrectly. There needs to be (1) unit that targets areas all over the city.

Totally agree.I don't understand why do we need MSF, TRU, and , Saturation. We don't need another unit or fucking strategy because as long as we have bosses who are scared of their own shadows not to get booted from their sweet posts, nothing will change in this fucking Department. Combine TRU and MSF to 200 Police Officers (throw those fucking movers, parking tickets and ANOV books)
, disband Saturation (I mean no disrespect to you guys)because they serve no purpose and send the rest BACK TO THEIR ORIGINATING DISTRICTS and fill up those beat cars. Problem solved!!!!
Fucking admit it. SOS got out control, but, they got the job done and did it on their own without the help of anyone else....

And to: The laffer is the Clowns that will be lining up 4 deep to strap on the Taser & tote the M4 in the hopes they'll be noticed by some boss & find their way to a beloved "spot". Sellout Suckholes, You know WHO you are!!

Also, most of those over paid civilian appointees that are making near or over 6 figures could be replaced by light duty, injured officers.
This should give us several hundred more on the street.

J-Fled is asking for volunteers for a 90 day detail to go to Tru and Mobile strike force. If they don't get volunteers they are gonna use reverse seniority to fill the spots. He sent a list of how many he wants from each dist and unit. So he has to know that since we just got fucked with a 2% raise that not a single cop is gonna volunteer for this fucking thing. The worst part is he is gonna draft 50 kids with 3 or 4 yrs on the job who are tired of writing tickets or just wanna try something new and send them to the worst parts of Chicago!! My heart goes out to the families of these kids because this could be a huge and possibly deadly mistake. FOP is there anything we can do for these guys?

Boaton Police were among the highest-paid city employees last year, according to city figures released to the Globe earlier this year. Of the 125 highest-paid employees, all but one were police officers. In 2006, the average uniformed police officer made $113,617 , including $35,600 in detail and overtime. But union officials maintain that the overtime and detail pay are not part of an officer's normal pay and can fluctuate.

If you looking for that down south kind of BBQ over your everyday backyard BBQ.
I would recommend "Smoque BBQ" 3800 N PULASKI. TWO BLOCKS SOUTH OF IRVING PARK RD.

FAX came out today asking for Sgt's to volunteer for this Summer Freak Fest. They are seducing them with 10 hour days, but it says that DOG's will be determined when you get there. 90 day detail. have fun working 10 hour days...too bad they are not telling you that you will be on straight days off - T/W/R. Working every freaking weekend. Anyone volunteers for this, you are a giant tool!

You're an idiot, and this is how untrue rumors start. Tru is 10 days ROTATING. You will be in a dog!

Im a Sergeant in the MSF and I can honestly say that we are being worked to death chasing these thugs down, we are not anywhere near the strength we were when we started in Oct 07, now they want to detail 100 more people in here and strip the districts, what BULLSHIT, The only way to slow down , now the key word here is slow down not stop these goofs is to lock them up, zero tolerance, no dice games, drinking, driving without license, etc, no spitting etc. but we all know that this won't happen because the city management team SUCKS, we have a chief of staff, Daley who could care less about us and the city, he only cares about his pals, he could care less about his former Bridgeport area, he has given up , but when he leaves he will have a TON of money, this guy is ridiciously corrupt and untouchable, so he can say he loves Chicago or whatever, but he lies. I wouldn't even think about taking this 90 day detail,

Heard that someone from the policy group with less than 2 years on the job is the self-proclaimed computer genius that came up with this lame-ass "crime-prediction" computer program. His last name starts with a "G" and ends with "Stein". Boys and girls, we're in deep shit if this guy is being taken seriously. Just another hack with no police experience trying to make a name for himself!

Craig T Nelson was police chief on the TV show "The District" he did this same thing based on comstat from NYPD. It worked on TV so it must work for CPD! Nothing new invented.

All this NEW technology, Tasers, M4's, collapsible batons. These things do not mean a thing unless you put in EFFECTIVE police work.It is time for the 10+ year officers to bring back the LUSTRE this great department had!

Are you crazy? The message to the troops has been sent, we are on our own! This is all about self preservation these days. I have never felt worse about this job. It has become just a job to the majority of us, at least those of us with any brains and self respect. We will NEVER work for shortshanks again, no matter which evil minion he sends to run this freak show.
Sincerely
A once proud policeman

I heard Brett G. and ISD Cmdr. have a company that is marketing and trying to sell this program to the CPD. How can these guys be developing programs on company time and then get double paid. This stinks like old cheese.

I will use my son's Spell and Speak as a crime predictor. I'll let you know if this works, maybe I can partner up with Brett and ISD to make a fat penny off the city.

Re: The District starring Craig T. Nelson and "political correctness".

Talk about P.C. run amok, one episode of The District had me rolling on the floor laughing.

A middle aged black woman is abducted in Washington, D.C. (check D.C. racial demographics) and tossed in a Town Car trunk by her yet unseen abductors. Unbeknownst to the kidnappers, she has a cell phone. With hip hop "music" blasting from the cabin, she calls the Metropolitan Police. They triangulate on her transmission and pull over the vehicle in the last minutes of the program. She has been saved.

Meanwhile, a couple of black MPD officers pull the young thugs out of the Lincoln: three Caucasians who look like frat boys from the University of Wisconsin. They finally appear before a black judge. Fuckin' hysterical!

O/T to those of you who believe that 017 doesn't have any crime to speak of...you are complete morons...I know that the common perception is that all the hard chargers go to the ghettoes of 015, 025. 003 and 011 and get some time under their belts...some stay in those districts for their entire career and I give them their props..however, having said that, I am a working P.O. in 017 and deserve a little respect..for whatever reason, this is where I am right now in my career and while I never disparage those who make the choice to work in the some of those most violent districts in the city of Chicago, I am also tired of those same hard chargers who constantly attack P.O.s who work in 017 and 016..maybe you have not noticed but our shirts are all blue and some of us work very hard no matter where we are assign....so the next time some of you hard chargers come to a quieter district with your ghetto attitudes and the holier than thou attitude, maybe you will take a moment and say "how dare I judge another blue shirt especially when I don't know that person and I don't know what his/her experiences have been?'' There are a few police officers in 017 that have worked there their whole careers who have shot and killled someone either off duty or on duty...that is something not every fillmore ranger can claim so why dont' you all think before you speak..its annoying and childish this constant judgment of north vs. south vs. west sides...grow up already....

Smoque is not overpriced, it is very affordable, and it is not a southside ghetto joint. You can keep your place at 106th and whatever...there are actually NORMAL people eating at Smoque. You don't have to worry about getting shot.

Did the new Commanding officer in the Supts office come up with all this BS? A Sgt in the 1st deps office for years, retired and DS made him his director, then SOMEHOW gets made commander of General Support. Which is a civilian spot, does his damage there and NOW JFEDs commanding officer. WTF?! He may end up the next Superintendent in his civilian capacity. MORALE, WHATS THAT?

I wouldn't give them "props". They are idiots. I'd rather work close to home and take pride in the police work I do. Who cares if a couple west or south side jog-off's want to shoot each other? Who care's if a neighborhood wants to rape, rob, and pillage each other? Let them. All they want to do is sue you. Screw them, screw their community leaders, and screw their so called reverends. I'll work in the quiet district close to home and make sure it doesn't happen in my own back yard. You can go to the bar and brag about the hero that you are in the ghetto. Have fun at IPRA and Corporation Counsel. :)

Are you kidding me?
He was a patrolman in the 1st Deputy's office in the early to mid 80's.
When he finally made Sgt. - he went directly back to the 1st Deputy's office.
When he retired he went back to the 1st Deputy's office.

This guy has NEVER worked the street!
He doesn't know squat about being the police.
All he EVER WORKED ON in the 1st's office was the transfer order!
NOTHING ELSE!
All those years - no lie - just worked on the transfer order!
