"Reallocation"

  • Police districts on Chicago's North Side would lose beat officers to South Side and West Side districts if the city were to reallocate cops based on the volume of 911 calls and backups for police service, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis has found.

    Police Supt. Jody Weis is expected to unveil a reallocation plan before the end of the year. One of the factors in his politically sensitive decision will be whether there's an abundance of officers in districts based on calls for service, he has said. Weis hasn't identified the districts that will lose beat officers, how may cops will be shifted or any other factors he will use in the reallocation.

    To measure calls for service and backups, the Sun-Times obtained a district-by-district comparison of 911 calls and of "radio assignments pending call events," which means the times there's no car available to respond to a call in a district.
Evidently, the Sun Times is pushing this line at the behest of someone. If they are using "calls for service" as the determining factor, they need to discount the following calls in any "study" to move resources:
  • All "man with a gun calls" that result in a 19-Paul;
  • All anonymous calls of dope sales with ZERO descriptions;
  • All landlord tenant disputes;
  • All calls regarding "social ills," including a child not going to school, a child disrespecting someone, putting out the boy/girl friend of the minute;
  • All Domestic Disturbances where (1) police have already responded twice, (2) police have spent a documented total of 15 minutes or more at the location, (3) a referral to a social agency has been given and (4) NO arrest has been made in the previous incidents or a NON-appearance by the victim at Domestic Court is known;
We're sure we forgot one or two and the readers will add them in. But this is a ridiculous measure to allocate resources. Here's some truly stupid circular logic by an alder-asshole:
  • The city's 911 data show certain areas of the city are "extremely quiet," Beale said. "We don't want to disturb that. However, if we can pull some of those resources to make some communities just as safe and secure as those other communities, we have a responsibility to do that. If you have officers sitting idle all day not responding to any calls and you have other sections where they can't even keep up with the calls, that's a disservice to the residents of this city."
So he wants to take away the very thing that makes these communities safe and quiet? Typical democrat thinking - "if you have more than us, let's take some away from you, give it to us (even though we didn't earn it) and let's all be poor and miserable together!" That's progressive thinking for you.

Newsflash for Beale - you're going to have to move more than police resources to make those neighborhoods safe and secure.

Newsflash for taxpayers - you're about to get fucked. Again. Billion dollar deficits at the local level. Tens of billions in state debt. 10% unemployment in Illinois and nowhere to go but down.

Get out if you can. Get a gun if you can't.

Up north in 016 we pay the highest amount of taxes, tax bills of 5 figures are not unusual.

The Police aren't called that much up here because we aren't animals who do violence for little reason and we don't call the police because a kid sassed his mother.

Down south and west the only taxes that seem to be paid by the average person are sales tax on cheetoes and red pop and excise taxes on ciggies and malt liqour.

Of course, our Alderman--who can always seem to be found at the tavern on his own barstool doesn't seem to give a shit.

The other posters are right--the PD could innundate 7,8,6,11,3,4 etc with coppers and it wouldn't solve a thing.

What else we do in the name of "fairness",

Pay more taxes in the "quite areas" to give "troubled areas" new park; (while we have to raise funds to improve the quite areas)

Pay more taxes in the "quite area" to give new schools to "troubled areas"

Give more money (taxes) to the "troubled areas" to have parents walk there kids to school

Give out free phones to the "troubled areas" while requiring the "quite areas" pay more fees to cover those phones

Pay more taxes in the "quite area" to give new sidewalks in the "troubled areas"

Demand/require businesses in "quite areas" pay for security and close early because "troubled areas" people are causing trouble at the "quite areas" business

Pay more taxes in the "quite area" to have more firehouses in the "troubled areas"

Pay more taxes to give an increase on the "troubled areas" to have an increase on there link card

The pay outs to the "troubled areas" are endless and the "quite areas" continue to pay for it all, why not give up their safety as well.

2oo more police, spread thru the worst districts wont be noticed, except in the districts where they are pulled from. The calls or crimes wont go down, they will just get reported faster. That could be done by utilizing the 311 system more efficiently. Run a few public service commercials about using 311 and call it a day.
If you want to really decrease crime in those neighborhoods, cut the welfare checks in half and watch the bloodsuckers go to another state. Crime will decrease. Problem solved again.

Ironically, the perception in the 'hood is that ALL the PO PO are in the white neighborhoods and don't care about the 'hood. When the truth of the matter is all the PO PO are always in the 'hood looking for the bad guys.. the 'hood already has LOTS of police attention... much more than the allegedly problem free "white" areas of the city (if there are any!)

They don't want to disturb the quiet communities?
Taking their resources away doesn't "disturb" the communities?
In some of the worst ghetto areas in this city you could put 2 coppers on every block and you'd still have an inordinately high ammount of calls for police service compared to these "quiet" communities. These fuckin idiots call 911 for almost anything and everything.
Why not address that and leave the resources alone in the "quiet" a.k.a white communities? Of course that wouldn't appease the revruns etc.
This department, under JFraud, is completely out of control and out of touch with reality.

The solution for these quiet neighborhoods is to call 911 for anything and everything. . . . just like they do in the hood. you can still take care of the problem yourself like adults normally do, just let the police 19B or 19P it. just make that call.

We need more people in 8, especially on the west side of the district. Garfield Ridge and Clearing are getting more gang activity and street crime/burglaries because there are not enough cars available to patrol adequately and response time to 911 calls has been a major issue for the last 15 years.

It is easier to hold what you have than to take back what you have lost.

Disregarding all the calls mentioned by SCC makes no sense. Those calls are some of the biggest drains on police resources and they aren't going to go away. The areas of the city that will lose officers are not going to suddenly flare up in senseless violence, just as the areas that receive additional police are not going to become quiet. All in all it is a proper husbanding of available assets and may keep some PO from getting shot in the ghetto areas. Everyone talks about not enough back up. Well here is an attempt to provide additional backup. I know, I know hire more personnel. A much better idea I admit, but that can't happen overnight.

I work in a south side district … And it’s always busy, re-allocating resources is the smart thing to do. However, the author brings up a good point about leaving the nice districts high and dry.

I have the solution! How about creating a mobile unit or some king of saturation force that goes into these ghettos and weeds out crime before it happens! Oh, and let these pre-madonnas answer some radio calls to take the weight of the beat guys.

Commnader of 004th District has been picked to lead this new unit. GEU will report to Homan Square. Some GEU teams will be disbanded. Only 10 teams will goto Homan. Area gun teams to be placed also in Homan to work with CAGE teams. District rapid beat cars to be reassigned to fast districts on a day to day basis. City will be divided north/south. North side cops will be sent to west side and south side cops sent south. This is JFLED's swan song. He's trying to curry favor with Ald.

I say lets charge $1.00 for every 911 call made. It can be charged to a land or cell pnone. This will stop those wasting our time with BULLSHIT calls. I would be more than willing to pay a buck to call 911 because I know it's a real call. This will also help pay for police and the fire department to get working cars, computers, tasers, and everything else that is needed. The next mayor should jump on this idea to gain more revenue. It's kinda like if you call 411 you get charged so how hard would it be to make this happen????

And the only thing they can find to move is beat officers? Lets run the numbers again, please:

279 beats citywide. 5 officers per day per beat, for a total of 1395 officers per day. Multiply by 1.17 to get an average of 1 sergeant per 6 officers, and then again by 1.5 to account for RDOs and excusable absences.

Total officers and sergeants required to more-or-less fully staff beats and field supervisors: 2450. Add in perhaps 1050 more for rapid response (2 watches) and supervisors citywide, for a grand total of 3500ish to fully staff field units on watches.

How many fucking sworn people are there in the CPD not humping a beat or supervising beat cars? The answer is obviously "most". Get the bodies somewhere else!

You make some very good, and probably valid points on the type of calls for service that should not be counted. I think the criteria should be violent crime, burglary and auto theft only. However, this will also cause for manpower to be moved. There was a police study done in St. louis a few years ago where they withdrew all police patrols in some high crime areas and in low crime areas. The police went in only to answer serious calls for service. The result was no increase and no decrease in crime reported in either area. There has beenplenty orf research done in this area. I hope they use some of it to make decisions and not rely on gut feelings or political pressure.

This will not be the only catastrophic change that will be foisted on us before election day. You northside taxpayers had better all get yourselves security systems, services, cameras and heavy-duty doors and locks, because even the dumbest criminals in the ghetto will realize it'll be easier and more profitable to start criminalizing those neighborhoods that will be left without adequate police coverage.

If you haven't already had the "pleasure" of experiencing a good, old-fashioned CPD fucking, it sounds like you guys and gals without much seniority are in for being shafted balls-deep and dry.

And remember, when push come to shove, and per our contract: we are little more than chess pieces in blue that can be moved at the department's discretion*** to "maintain operational needs as deemed necessary to meet the goals of the department"...or something along those lines. This clause in our contract is purposely vague for reasons just like this. Catering to the whim and fancy of the likes of Beale is just ONE of the problems with this methodology of reallocation, however.

This topic is the exact reason I tell my wife, family, and neighbors to call for anything and everything. Please don't misunderstand me, I am not suggesting to waist fellow POs time, but if you are going to allocate based on frequency, than handling our own neighborhood problems or calling the district for a "favor" contributes to the smoke and mirrors like reallocating resources.

SCC you are correct that the second part of the story needs to be told, the fact that a high percentage of those calls are garbage. Anyone who has worked in any of those neighborhoods knows their way to handle anything is to dial 911.

Sorry, but the reason certain neighborhoods are safer and more secure are part and parcel to the type of residents within the neighborhood. 2211 isn't crawling with squad cars and the neighborhood is fairly decent. Go to beat 631 or 623 and there are police cars everywhere and the crime doesn't stop. Jody, bad idea. So take away what police are left in the decent tax paying neighborhoods and then give the police service to those who clearly don't want the service and pay none of the taxes. Another example of why society is crumbling.

I expect that when this new reallocation plan comes to fruition, we'll all be seeing a goodly number of new retirements and/or resignations added to this year's total. We all know there are plenty of police who work north of Chicago's 'Mason/Dixon' line (Madison st.) who have never worked in some of our busier and emotionally exhausting districts who have no intentions of going there. Hopefully, all those slow districts named in the Sun Times article have stocked up on PAR forms to handle it.

They've cut our numbers through attrition and now they want to thin the ranks of the decent areas even more. I work up north and we are in a rap quite often. They've thinned the herd enough, it's time to do some hiring and if we're short on the West/South sides of the city, send the new officers there. Some of the beats in 016 and 017 are nearly the size of the 15th District already.

I might be wrong, but I think the District I work in has about 80 or 100 fewer officers than a few years ago. The crime violent crime rate may be less, but there are plenty of property crimes to attend to. I can see it now, we'll have 2 cars to a sector coming soon.

This is going to be a recipe for disaster. Big, buff, prison type young men that aren't interested in going to lockup for the evening and you only have maybe a total of 1 or 2 cars that can respond to the 10-1. The size of the responding officers is getting smaller every year and the size of the department is getting smaller by the year. There are going to be more police shootings because of this. The pig pile keeps getting smaller and the felons keep getting larger. What is a smaller officer to do when the offender outweighs him/her by over 100 pounds and is using this advantage fully? Get permanently disabled trying to subdue a hulk sized monster?

"WE WILL BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN RIGH AND POOR." (Translation, we will get more money out of the working population who don't vote for me and give it to the non-working population who would vote for me.)

"WE WILL FIND NEW SOURCES OF REVENUE"
(Translation, New Taxes!!)

Typical Democratic Thinking! They get away with it because only 25% of cop vote, but 100% pay taxes.

works out good for 008.... how are they going to do this?? is this gonna be a seniority thing? how do they determine which officers will be dumped from the current district and go to the new district? im guessing that they can only reassign people from units that will be disbanded(gang enforcement) or it will just be ppo's. anyone have any idea how they would swing this? I though they couldnt dump p.os out of districts they are assigned to.

YOU HIT THE PROBLEM RIGHT IN THE HEAD.

THE DEPARTMENT HAS PLENTY OF SO CALLED COMPUTER SPECIALIST AND PEOPLE WITH MANAGEMENT DEGREES YET WHEN THEY DRAW UP THE NUMBERS THEY COME UP WITH AN ASS BACKWARD METHOD!

WHAT GOLDSTEINS CREW DOING BECAUSE THEY STILL HAVE NOT COME THROUGH ON A PREDICTION!

SINCE I PAID FOR MY DEGREE THEY MAY WANT TO ALSO ADDRESS:

SIZE OF DISTRICT AND RESPONSE TIMES

AMOUNT OF AREA COVERED BY OTHER DEPARTMENTS U.I.C./ UNIV OF CHICAGO/ METRA/ PRIVATE SECURITY ETC ETC.

UNIT SUCH AS TRU YADD-YADDA- YADDA
SHOULD BE SENT BACK BECAUSE THEY SKEW THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE DEPLOYED IN AN AREA.

AMOUNT OF BLUE LIGHT CAMERAS

AMOUNT A FALSE OR BULLSHIT CALLS

People of Sauganash, Edison Park, Morgan Park, Forest Glen, Lincoln Square, Lincoln Park, etc.... it is time for you to speak up and do something. Protest. Call your alderman. Do something and do not let them get away with it!

For the love of God, if police resources are taken away from decent neighborhoods, then the criminals will set up shop there.

What troubles me the most is how complacent people are. I told my brother in law who lives in Sauganash and his response? "We live in Sauganash, we don't have too much crime around here and crime won't increase here because it's such a great neighborhood and a lot of cops live here".

What stupid thinking. Citizens of Chicago, you better do something. Or else even good neighborhoods will be infested with crime and Detroit here we come.

You know, if they truly looked into the types of calls that 911 receives, they would be pulling coppers OUT of the south and west side districts!

I work the North-side and the majority of daily calls are domestic. But if you looked at each call, you would find that over 95% of the time the police are not needed.

Your kid won't go to school....it's a domestic. Your kid "disrespecting you?" Call 911, it's a domestic. Hell, the last one I went to, the alleged victim was screaming that hubby was banging on the apartment door.....from the outside! She wanted a report and wanted him arrested. At the first sign that she wouldn't get her way, she starts threatening me and my partner with a law suit.

After a few more minutes of talking, she admitted that she already has 4 case reports on domestic battery going back as far as July of this year. When asked if she ever pursued the matter in court, "did you get an order of protection?", "did you try and get a warrant on him?", the answers were "Ah, no. I been busy".

Why bother? Most of the time the victim doesn't want anything done. They just want us to show up so they can yell and scream at whoever they called on.

And just imagine that this does happen. Coppers are pulled out of the North side districts and sent to the south and west side districts. Now all of a sudden you have a big increase of police presence, one that is not going away after a few weeks or months. All those coppers start doing their job out there and you know what the reaction will be from all those "fine" citizens?

They will be screaming: 1)Racial profiling. Let's face it, the North side is filled with mostly white coppers. 2)Abuse. See previous statement.

This is also part of all this really silly, "Deployment Locations". Little boxes inside Police Districts, some taking in parts of two or three beats, where the Watch Commanders have to send units and keep track of activity there. This is to justify the Predictive Analytics Group reason for being. It is also perhaps to get away from the idea that any neighborhood has a right, taxpaying or not, to have a constant police presence there.

Again, the Dems screw the working people in this town, because we don't bother to vote.

its not the amount of police in an area that makes it safe, its the people who live in the community that make it safe. you can put every cop in the city in area 2 and it still wouldn't be safe. there is no reason just because i live in a safe neighborhood that the police get sent away.

I would like to ask the FOP two questions,

1)What the hell are you guy's doing?

2)Why are you not fighting for Officer's basic rights?

I MUST live in the city, fine I accepted that, but that was when the city could provide the most basic essentials for living.


Lets look at the facts:
City Officials or relatives there of have "borrowed"/Taken Money from my pension and now it's way underfunded.

You raised my property tax recently almost 1800.00.

My kids school is so over-crowded when they eat in the lunchroom some students have to sit on the floor just to have room to eat.

I have to pay a "workbook" fee for no workbooks at the school. The kids get copies of copies of a copy of a workbook page, and that is usually unledgable.

Park programs are a joke, if you can get in them, good luck, if your not on the computer at 8am kiss it goodbye, 200 daycamp openings for 2000 kids.

How can anyone raise a family in this city?

I know, quit my job, go on public aid, get free housing, get into the best schools, get free day care, free health care, free food, free school, true I wont have a pension, but the way things look now, working my ass off wont get me one either.

Come on FOP, do something..Remember Karma!!! If you sell us out, I hope you collect one check when you retire. Yes, thats harsh, but obviously you need motivation down there! I really hope you don't believe your family is better then mine or any other P.O., you have been choosen to represent our Family's best interests, you have failed so far, don't think you can slap us in the face and get away with it.

There is no way they will kill the tact teams in the districts. The tact teams are the aldermen and commander's babies. Every district needs them to bring the BS numbers and do the BS details.

Disregarding all the calls mentioned by SCC makes no sense. Those calls are some of the biggest drains on police resources and they aren't going to go away. The areas of the city that will lose officers are not going to suddenly flare up in senseless violence, just as the areas that receive additional police are not going to become quiet. All in all it is a proper husbanding of available assets and may keep some PO from getting shot in the ghetto areas. Everyone talks about not enough back up. Well here is an attempt to provide additional backup. I know, I know hire more personnel. A much better idea I admit, but that can't happen overnight.

•The city's 911 data show certain areas of the city are "extremely quiet," Beale said. "We don't want to disturb that. However, if we can pull some of those resources to make some communities just as safe and secure as those other communities, we have a responsibility to do that. If you have officers sitting idle all day not responding to any calls and you have other sections where they can't even keep up with the calls, that's a disservice to the residents of this city."

Does this MORON actually think that it is police presence that makes a neighborhood "extremely quiet"? Those districts that are "quiet" are so because they act like normal human beings who have responsibilities and a moral foundation that prevents them from acting like animals! Like SCC said, you are going to have to move a lot more than police to the busy districts! As long as those residents continue to act like savages, no amount of police presence is going to solve their problems! I say we just build a wall around 'em and let 'em have at each other! It'll get quiet eventually ...

The Democratic Party has created this monster over the past 65 or so years. They have made people depended on government,which includes police, fire,and means of economic survival, welefare. They act like children so they have to be treated like children and like children, when given too much they expect moore. The two ways to solve this problem is either stop giving people everything or keep giving them moore. The latter will destoy us and nobody is willing to stop it. It may be impossible to stop at this point without some type of revolution, which I pray will be peaceful. Remember you people see it everyday, the rest of America is just wakng up. Be safe.

Hot off the presses at 35th street- TACT Teams to Areas to act as citywide unit. Northside Teams will goto 010,011, 015,025,and southside Teams goto 003,004,005,006,007,008. Commnader of 004th District has been picked to lead this new unit. GEU will report to Homan Square. Some GEU teams will be disbanded. Only 10 teams will goto Homan. Area gun teams to be placed also in Homan to work with CAGE teams. District rapid beat cars to be reassigned to fast districts on a day to day basis. City will be divided north/south. North side cops will be sent to west side and south side cops sent south. This is JFLED's swan song. He's trying to curry favor with Ald. Beales and reverends to try and save his job or at least get an extension of a year or two. Headquarters is only concerned with everything SOUTH of Madison street, ie shootings,violence,etc. Slower districts up north will be running a skeleton crew at night. Protect your family. This plan is on the drawing board right now and being finalized as I type this.

Tonight, my pharmacist at Osco told me what a good thing he thought this realignment was. "Sends the police to where they're really needed", he said.

Then I asked if he lived northwest. No, he lives OUTSIDE the city! That explains why he's so quick to agree that it's okay that the few good neighborhoods left in this city should lose what little police protection they still have.

Once I explained the 'call volume' criteria, and what types of stupid calls are counted, he changed his mind. When he heard we are actually required to respond to 'my boy disrespected me' calls, he was dumbfounded. Welcome to my world, guy.

Stop pushing these .380 caliber weapons. You are going to get someone hurt. That round is completely unacceptable as a selfdefense round. It should only be used for plinking small vermin like rats or squirrels. 9mm or .38 are the minimum calibers that should be considered when purchasing a handgun for self defense. While the Kahr PM9 is a good gun, be advised that Sig is going to introduce a similar weapon in the near future, the P290. It is designed to compete with the Kahr but at a lower price. But whatever weapon you decide to buy, stay away from a 380! Do some research. The FBI standards strongly recommend that a self defense round be capable of penetrating a minimum of 12 inches in ballistic gelatin. The BEST 380 round will only penetrate about 7 inches. Now say what you want about the FBI. But realize that one thing they do do right is ballistic testing. They collect OIS reports from all over the nation everytime there is an OIS. They also do their own ballistic research. If there was ever a group of empty holsters it would be the FBI but even they will not use the 380. STAY AWAY FROM THE 380. PLEASE. The life you save may be your own.

No. If they want to, they can put you anywhere. It's called MAN POWER NEED. It was done to 2 officers in 024 a several years ago. They both got dumped to 023. They never requested the transfer. One had over 20 years on and the other had between 10 - 15 years when this happened.

Disregarding all the calls mentioned by SCC makes no sense. Those calls are some of the biggest drains on police resources and they aren't going to go away.

They can go away. Just stop sending officers to them.

Or fine them. How many times have you been dispatched to a domestic and when you get there it turns out that junior either doesn't want to go to school and mama wants you to take them or someone disrespected someone else.

Or lock them up for filing a false report.

Or have call back do their job and take the damn report over the phone instead throwing the call back to 911.

Stop having the fire dispatches CONSTANTLY request police back up for EVERY CALL they get. I have arrived at many of these calls only to be asked by the fire personnel on the scene why was I there, they didn't request the police.

Hard time has gotten even harder in Illinois prisons.

The state's prison system is bursting at the seams with a record high of nearly 49,000 inmates, some 3,000 more than just a year ago. The surge, combined with the state's multibillion-dollar budget crisis, has led to conditions that watchdog groups and veteran correctional officers say they haven't seen since a population crisis in the 1980s prompted the state to build three new prisons.

#1. Was actually link card dispute, That's right, a fuckin link card issue. Girlfriend had given boyfriend the card and code. He and his other crack-ho girlfriend spent up all the money on the card. Police matter? I'm thinking NO!
#2.38 year old momma wants us to make 20 year old daughter leave the premises. Because daughter took, YOU GUESSED IT,the LINK CARD and bought food without consulting momma. Police matter? I'll take NO!
#3. 17 year old female gave her cellphone to her 19 year old (baby-daddy) and ex boyfriend, who refused to give it back in a timely manner.
All 3 calls were dispacthed as domestics. NONE,were in actuality, police matters. WaThaFuck!

I don't mind having units like TRU and MSF in the district, when they help us out when we ask for more cars. The problem I have is that when we are in our infinite backlog and driving from job to job, we often pass by 4 or 5 (literally) MSF or TRU cars sitting on a traffic stop while we are being run ragged. Why in the hell can't they answer radio calls? Perhaps if we had more help dealing with the bullshit calls, there would be more time for EVERYONE to do proactive work if they so choose. Not that any of us should be doing anything proactive these days, but I'm just sayin.

Actually there are two types of rounds for this weapon, one to use in the summer, and another to use in the fall winter spring that will penetrate the coats and jackets... check it out.

Reallocation, deficits, mayoral election, pension. All taking our attention away from what is really important: Preparing for a terrorist attack in our city.

Prepare ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally and in every way we can. Ammo and a go-bag at home and in the car. Lots of canned goods, bottled water, first aid. Full tank of gas at all times, etc.

The anniversary of the Mumbai attack is Friday, Nov 26. Those were more than 10 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai, India's largest city.

Be aware, be prepared. In the event of any terrorist attack there will likely be an increase in plain old crime including looting.

The policy for responding is set by the CPD and the CFD. The 911 Center follows the instructions given to them by CPD and CFD. The 911 Center is merely a conduit between the public and CPD and CFD, but CPD ad CFD sets the policy and controls what gets dispatched for service. As it stands, CFD allows Fire 911 to refuse service as they see fit, while CPD demands that CPD 911 take every call and either dispatch it or send it to call back. Nobody at CPD wants to establish a no service policy and then get sued the first time shit goes bad. Blame a litigious pulic, not CPD or the 911 Center.

I heard 40 PO's from 019

Impossible. 019 is around 18% understrength now. 13 more from each watch means no one gets time off. Ever.

That would mean that in 12 years 019 went from a strength of around 350 to 230. And they pay a lot of taxes. For what, to send the police so Beale and Meeks can better control the humanoids there?

Alderman Schulter, Waugespack and Tunney better start fighting for their ward.

Yup, word is 40 from 19. If I go, I'm not doing anything. How is it my fault that south and west sides are nothing but the filth of the city? Aldermen, go fuck yourselves, you pieces of shit!

This department has plenty of problems, this is true. One of them....LAZY A** , DO NOTHING, OFFICERS WHO COMPLAIN ABOUT EVERYTHING.

And another problem facing the department is idiots like yourself. You really think that you are hot shit, huh? Some 5 year wonder who is either trying to get on the tact team or trying to save his spot.

While I will be the first to say that we could all benefit from your experience and wisdom (sarcasm alert!), truth be told all those 1 bag of weed, pissing on the public way or DOPW arrests that you have under your belt aren't exactly movie of the week material.

But hey! Keep dreaming kid. You just might make something of yourself someday. Maybe when that happens you'll be able to move out of mommy and daddy's basement, get your own place and paper your walls with all your honorable's you've racke


Not on Tact. Don't want to be on Tact....I don't believe I'm hot anything. I've just grown tired of Officers who are just a waste of space. You think I look at myself as better than someone because I expect people to put forth effort? Really? Ok then.....

Are you just quoting the arrests you made, if you have made any at all. Oh wait, you are probably so upset by my post because it describes YOU.

It's funny. It seems like the sentiment on this blog is if someone speaks out against Lazy, Dog A** Officers, they are young and with some sort of agenda. That's not true. I know plenty of Officers that are not 'fresh out of the Academy' that despise the laziness that exists.
It's pretty embarrassing. Some Officers are a disgrace to the Uniform and deserve to be fired.

But alas, we protect those who, in essence, put other Officers safety at risk. Because it's acceptable to be a Lazy-A** copper who doesn't back people up and comes to work to do nothing at all.

If your Wife/Family needed the Police for whatever reason, you'll be hoping someone like myself gets the call. Not one of these good-for-nothings that will take their sweet time getting there.

I'm not some tough guy type. I cant save the world, but I RESPECT the job. I wish more would do the same.

Hey Big City Police (Ret.) why don't you run for mayor?

Wow. Taking 40 from 19 is being confirmed by some brass. It seems aldermen up there really don't give a shit.
