Special Meeting

Invite only according to the rumor:
  • Unbelievable!!! Supposedly the A.S. [the "bartender] and the Superintendent's wife are hosting an invitation only event [...] for female police to have a meet and greet with female exempts. Only the "most exceptional" females with the "most potential" have been allowed to be invited. I guess if you are a stand up broad working the street you do not qualify. I wonder if this was a brain fart from the girls in the policy group?
We don't even know where to begin with this one. We will say that the crude innuendos that started popping up at the first mention of this will be summarily deleted as per policy.

But really? Having "the bartender," who's most famous accomplishment to date is having dope and illegal guns being stored in her condo is the person you want setting an example to any cop? We're pretty sure there are better examples, but we guess it depends on the lesson they are trying to teach. Obviously, hard effort and good police work aren't it.

Not enough viable women, not enough viable hispanics, not enough viable african americans; hence the 'Star Search.' Looks like I'm about to get lapped again. With the change in city politics underway, the clear lines of succession will blur and yield some stunning moves. I think we could see another 35th street decapitation as the J-Fled regime lame-duckwalks out of here.

What strong message is that sending to all of the hard working females on the street? That only a select few with clout are considered for future promotions? This is an absolute slap in the face to every female. An example of typical clout bullshit. Weiss has no idea how to lead. From this stupid idea to the smart answers on the 501 blog. Whats he thinking? Or what is the policy group thinking?

Will the so-called "exceptionable" individuals be all those ladies who work in CAPS and inside positions? Especially those fortunate to be so well qualified to be detailed or assigned to 35th Street.

What about those women who work midnights on the street in districts. Will then be overlooked again?

SCC, you can delete this if you want.

I have a question. Name me a good female exempt on this job?????? I cannot think of any. I have a hard time thinking of any decent females who are Lts or Captains. Most of the female Captains I can think of are medical abusers or just plain horrible

Lets call a spade a spade. The majority of females on this job ride a desk. I have worked all over this city and the vast majority of the time when I see a squad car there are males in the car. Go to any desk on any watch in any district and I can tell you what the majority will be, Females! Go to the office staff in any dist, unit, or headquarters and the overpaid secretaries dressed as Police Officers will be female. Do I have to mention the CAPS office??? More cowardly females hiding in that office.

I have no problem with women who can do the job or at least try. There are plenty of men on the street who have no clue and are cowards.

This meeting is just a show to add more women to management ranks who don't deserve and certainly haven't earned it.

To the working females on the street I apologize. I respect what you do and wish you the best.

Sounds like bartender B is trying to garner support from barbie and her band of $&);: and all females. Maybe calls to their peeps to keep B near tge top and/or put her at the top when the fledster's services are no longer required.

I'm sure there will be hints of retention in spots and future promotion.

Is penny the key note speaker?

Whenever the City of Chicago uses such obscure and subjective terminology such as "most exceptional" and "most potential" without well-defined written criteria, it means but one factor: "CLOUT". The Chicago Way.

Leroy Martin hosted a " survivors lunch" for all exempts each Christmas season at the Conrad Hilton. The exempts had to wear their dress uniform with a bow tie. He also had about a dozen police women from the buildings serving as hostesses. They escorted the exempts to their seats, took the coats of wives and got the bosses their drinks. They all had to wear red dresses for the occasion. In short, they were free waitresses. The police women were recruited from those working in the HQ bldg. The photos of these police women in their lovely red dresses were posted in the lobby along with the party photos which were taken, as always, by the crime lab. I was disgusted then at what some people will do to themselves just to keep a position. I knew some of these officers and I asked them why they did this? Their reply was to "volunteer" for this humiliating job or be transfered back to the field. This continued until the Sun Times wrote a story on this party and the fact the city money paid for the party.As I recall, 50 grand was the price.

Granted, it's good to spend time with the next generation of women in the ranks and reflect on all the compromises I had to make back in the day to get ahead...

And over the years, I've always taken under my wing the handsome young ladies (who reminded me of when I was an officer working the beat for three periods) and tried to explain the back-braking work I went through...

But don't think for a minute that having a brain alone got me to a command-level rank.

I learned SO MUCH from all those Sgts and Lts and Capts and Commanders and Deputies and Chiefs and Supts...my head is spinning...never underestimate the power of being connected to a heavy dude.

G*d bless Chuckles and Phat Phil, but thanks be unto Weis for dumping me back to Captain so I wouldn't have to do furlough days and take a pay cut in my autumn years.

Anyone see my Impala?

I work for a female Capt on 1st watch in 022. She makes working midnights somewhat bearable. Even though she achieved the rank via a law suite I would put her in the same category of many of the tested Captains I've worked for years ago. I would love to see her make exempt, I know people would love her and she leads by example. She is a "prince" of a boss.

I just want to say that when "Aunt Bea" was a Commander in 010, she was an EXCELLENT boss. She did nothing but try to take care of the working Police. Anything brought to her attention was handled with the best intention for the Officers. Awards were plenty, no crazy b.s. that I hear about hear on the blog from other Commanders.

Also the current Commander of 013 was exceptional as a Captain and is still the same as a Commander. I would work for these two female bosses any day. Shit happens. You cant run an adult kids life. I sure am glad none of us are held accountable for our adult relatives actions because we would all be getting F*cked over for someone/something. I am not female.

I am not a suck up. I just know of alot of male bosses that are not worthy of any type of leadership and would never willingly work for them (again).

Give me a supportive boss and I will show you a crew not afraid to work. I know having these types of parties are b.s. I just want to know when the Departments party for white male Officers is going to happen?

Parties or "Special Meetings" for only a Male Caucasian American Club? (Not everyones Irish) That wouldnt go over well would it?

I don't have a problem with helping out my friends on this job. Who else can you trust other than someone you have spent time with and had some common experiences with. My concern is that the upper eschalon of this Department is now shopping around for friends, because they dont have any, because they never did a thing. So what a woman wants to promote a woman. A white dude a white dude and a black dud a black dude. The FOP gave them the 20%, dont blame anyone else. If I get invited can i bring my scented candles to sell?

You are a dumb mf'er. Martin has always been taken care of especially while she was at 35th street working for a previous Sup't domestic violence program. She was only a Lt or Capt for a short time and promoted by our bartending asst. sup't because they were friends that worked together in 10. On top of that, how hard does anyone work in a district like 13. More like a vacation spot compared to places we work in. How is that not being taken care of?? Go back in your hole, you troll.

I agree with those who commented about Capt. Lipman. A great boss. And as far as that law suit, she stood up to that piece of shit commander of 002 who tried pulling some racist shit and when that happened, the city retaliated against her and a couple of other female bosses. That is what the settlement was for. They didn't find in her favor for the original grievance against Perry. Also I work for Capt. Helm now. Another great boss to work for. Don't know why she got dumped but I'll bet it was for standing up for herself. And shows no bitterness.

I just love to listen to all these 013 district "warriors" ramble on what a great boss Elmer was. If he was so good and the current ones in 013 are so bad, why don't you transfer into 021? And better yet,if you are such a great police officer why didn't he take you with him or ask you to transfer into 021? Stop whining about the white shirts in 013. All they ask us to do is our jobs, nothing less, nothing more. Stop eating your lunch at the desk, stop staying down for an hour or longer on simple 10 minute jobs etc. and you will see that life in 013 isn't bad at all. The people you mentioned may not win the award for Mr. or Ms. Congeniality of the year award but they usually do not bother anybody but instead simply ask you to do what you are supposed to do. We could do far worse than those you mentioned. Do you remember Groucho? Or DH? Want those two back? My God man, grow up!
