Mysterious Security Detail

  • When Miguel del Valle took office as Chicago’s city clerk in December 2006, he immediately made clear he’d make one change: He would do without a perk enjoyed by his predecessors — his own police security detail.

    Given that his duties involve things like handling vehicle stickers, keeping City Council records and licensing dogs, del Valle — now running for mayor — “felt it was unnecessary to use taxpayers’ dollars for a police security detail and a driver,” says Kristine Williams, his spokeswoman.

    Four other city officials, though, do have the taxpayer-funded bodyguards. They include Mayor Daley, city Treasurer Stephanie Neely and Ald. Edward M. Burke (14th), chairman of the City Council’s Finance Committee.

    And the fourth? The police won’t say.

Won't say? Why not? This is funded by the taxpayers, right? It isn't some Praetorian Guard protecting the royal court, is it?

And why does the mayor have such a large detail? Wasn't it something like twenty-four officers, all paid at the Sergeant rate and two sergeants being paid commander's pay? A fleet of cars squirreled away in the old neighborhood and drivers at the beck-and-call of his children and grandchildren?

Jane Byrne has the right idea though:
  • But former Mayor Jane M. Byrne, a onetime Daley rival who had a security team of 12 police officers during her time at City Hall, says she wasn’t offered protection since leaving office in 1983.

    [...] Byrne says she thinks Daley shouldn’t have a detail after he leaves City Hall.

    “I’ve had to get along fine, and I think he could also get along fine,” says Byrne, 76.

Good call. In the meantime, who's the fourth official detail?

F*ck Daley!

He shouldn't have the detail he has now, and if he needs one AFTER he retires, let him pay for it from the million$ that he stole from the taxpayers!

Who the hell anointed him as royalty!

The media REALLY needs to get on this story!

Daley's current guards all laugh that da mayors kids will all have buy their own vehicles after Dick leaves office.

Funny thing is that even after the Mayor leaves office and is given a four man staff of on duty police officers for life, the bodyguards will still be driving the mayors friends and family around the city and to his summer home out of state!

OT but real funny on the other blog on whats wrong with HQ:


Dear Superintendent:

I work at the Headquarters, M-F, weekends and holidays off. I am very greatful for my job, however, I was sick and I used all my COMP time in between medical time. I am a mother of young daughters, and I miss all my girls' school events, and I cannot take them to the doctor when they get sick, because I have no time due to take, and with just 7-8 days (personal and Bf, there are not enough days to take off through the year. I also have some personal business to attend, such as going to the doctor for tests, which I am not able to attend because I don't have time off to take. I would like to ask you, are we ever going to have 4/2 or 10 hour day? Please advise. Thank you very much and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Hey, I know where you can get the 4/2 schedule! Back in patrol! The answer was right there in front of you the whole time. You can work midnights in 003 and the poor SOB who's stuck there now can take your tough job and crappy hours.

OT:

Quick Question...

Say I want to qualify with the M4. I can sign up, go down, and use one of the dept's rifles and be qualified to then carry or buy my own if I so choose. So my question is this...

Why can't the dept do the same thing with the striker-fire weapons course? After tax time, I plan on upgrading my duty weapon. It seems like a giant waste of time to buy the gun, then have to wait for a class to open up, then sign up and finally be qualified. Why can't the dept have loaner guns just to qualify and pass like the M4? Then when I do buy the gun, I can immediately begin carrying it.

Just a rant. Feel free to add your own ideas or comments.

They will look at your ideas and the delete the emails.


I'm still waiting on answer for my budget idea I sent a while back:

Does Ald. Ed Burke really need an armed escort? Of course the answer is no. Get rid of those D3 officers and put them back in a patrol car and at D1 pay. And speaking of which, why does the mayor need armed body guards? Can't he call 911 like everyone else? He doesn't even like handguns in the city so why would he want to surrounded by them?

Doesn't Superintendant Jody Weiss get paid $310,000 to do two jobs, head both the police and OEMC? But now he is only doing one job. So why does he continue to receive the full amount?

Hey the reporter should go behind 51st and wentworth where they keep the "front line"cars for the use of the elite when their cars need repair! The city clerk dumped that detail then why do burke and neely need such a "fleet"of cars and coppers? Why does burke always have 2 guys can't he ride in the front seat? Of course not he needs someone to open and close his door! Strangely Mike Madigan as powerful as he is has no security drivers,and I drove by madigans home the other,observed a guy shoveling snow by his home who could it be I thought? It was none other than Madigan himself. Not a fan of his but goes to show you how different MEN are!

it's not always the "sergeants" assigned to the Mayor's detail who get the designated "commander" pay. it's whoever is decided by the Hall to be the designated "commander" of the detail. Patrolmen have been assigned as "commander" of the Mayor's detail as well but this shouldn't surprise anyone...remember when Cline appointed a "gang specialist (detective) as Cmdr of OCD, and later promoted him to Deputy Chief of OCD? A man who had never even graduated from high school? Nothing new here, move along people!

Note to the new cmdrs of the Mayor's detail: Enjoy the status while you can. When the new Mayor gets in, he will very likely install his own political boot-lickers as the NEW two cmdrs of the detail. If those uniforms don't fit, it might be time to purchase some new ones in January, typically a slow sales month; there might be some announced sales at the uniform stores you'll want to take advantage of.

Mayor Daley should not receive police protection after he leaves office . Let him hire private security if he's afraid or thinks Chicago is unsafe .

New Mayor should take away political body guards and hire off duty police officers at less money for his body guard detail.

Just my guess, but might this secret contingency of D-3 suckasses be assigned to our very own fearless "leader", J-Fled?

I know for a fact that he was surrounded by "heavies" early in his tenure as Grand Exalted Almighty Coward Whipping Boy Poseur Puppet Extreme. And as recently as September I was approached by an intrepid local as I stood in uniform outside the Weber Grill at State & Grand. This quasi-investigative reporter/nosey bastard inquired if I and my partner were "part of your bosses bodyguard team". I must've had a perplexed look on my face, because before I could answer, this citizen said: "Jody Weis. Your boss. Are you guys here as part of his bodyguard team? He's in there eating lunch right now. I see them all over down here."

And while I've seen him roll through 015, and have been told he pops into various other districts with just a driver in tow, that doesn't mean he motors around sans tail car(s).

Now I'm super curious...did the coppers that interviewed for J-Fled's security detail have to sign-off acknowledging that they'd "take an egg" for their boss?

They have absolutely no right to keep the identity of this person from the taxpayers who technically fund it. Also, who gave the go ahead on this and maybe if this protection is not justifiable (other than an egotistical perk) they should have to reimburse all costs connected to it.

My guess though is that the mystery detail is for *whisper* a religious person?

Damn! Get a regular job and see how fast you're on unemployment. This is a damn job, you go to it, do your work and get paid. If you can't go to work, you don't have a job.

I worked in another field for many years before getting on the job and we had 5 sick days per year and 3 weeks vacation per year. And we didn't dare take the damn sick time because it just wasn't done.

Poor house mouse, go back to a district and you'll earn comp time on these holidays you get off each year. Then, you'll have the ability to take a day off when needed. Get back into a car and by some sort of magic, you'll have traffic court each month. Another chance to earn comp time, so you can take a day off as needed.

Has it really gotten to this? Are we that spoiled and pampered that all we can do is whine? Try to make what you make here in the private sector. With the lack of work ethic I imagine you have, you'd be on public aid in a couple of years.

And the word is "grateful", not "greatful". A last thought, can't the other parent of the children take some of this responsibility or is he/she a 35th street house dweller also?

9.27am,,,,that is a great idea.

When I came on in the mid 80s, we used range revolvers until we had to buy our own. I am under the impression now that PPOs have to have their pistols on Day 1.

A piece of advice for your new purchase, get a pistol with a .4 in the caliber, either a .45ACP or a .40cal, you need the stopping power--take your fair advantage.

All of the choices are good, Glock, S&W M&P or Springfield all make wonderful, reliable weapons.

Jesse Sr has had a police detail for years. Back in the days when he had a bigger mouth than he has today the Dept had to provide that service due to some (at that time)credible death threats. His detail was temporally pulled for a while because the Department had to pull the two officers that Father Pflager had for years with him. He had a plainclothes detail that would arrive to Sabina in the morning and leave whenever his antics were finished for the day (OT included), and they would pick it up again in the morning. When his nonsense stayed in the public eye for a significant length of time they (City Hall) pulled his detail. He was then temporarily reassigned by the Archdiocese. The Dept. couldn't pull one detail (Pflager) without pulling the other (Jackson) without a racial outcry, so the Dept had two officers from the hate crime unit assigned to go to Push headquarters on Saturday mornings to be watchful of Jesse at their meetings. Of course that was done immediately after a Push member allegedly showed up at Push with two UNLOADED guns, and JJ felt “at risk” so he wanted his detail back again. After a while that detail became more permanent. The Detail at the Cardinal's residence is not a personal detail; it is a 004th District assignment. One car assigned to the residence, not the Cardinal. Yes, still a waste but nothing like a personal detail assigned to the body of some of these men and women who are much too important in their own minds. And, Jesse- he's not even a public official, just a pain in the ass big mouth who many people in the black community can't stand. Taxpayer dollars wasted is an understatement!

The supper secret security detail is for your next mayor. None other than the self important, Rahm Emanuel. That's right he now has a CPD funded detail. Just don't let the other candidates find out or they will want one too!

Shhhhhhhh. It's top secret.

The Mayor and Obama have known for more than a year the Rahm was the next mayor of Chicago. And decided he will be the winner.

Food for thought. several years before Obama was elected president, the Mayor told us all that there would be no medical insurance after 2013. Remember that?

They knew (decided) Obama would get elected because the fix was in. What did Obama do as soon as he took office?

He created and passed the Government run medical insurance plan which you will be forces to buy. Have any idea when it will take effect? Yes, you guessed it 2013!

City Hall Failure: They don't realize that Bodyguarding and general policework are two entirely different things. Instead of burning precious police resources with this absurd waste of manpower, why not train a specialized bodyguard detail from the ranks of the CPD?

An ex-LEO I know does VIP Security in the Middle East for a private security contractor (six figure a year gig, paying for his kids education at a big-time school). He had to train for situations that were entirely different than what he trained for as a peace officer. Weird, exotic shit like engaging multiple targets while running, one-handed shooting and shielding the subject, working a subgun in a crowd, etc, etc, etc... Bodyguarding is just a completely different thing than coppin' and we know for a fact that none of the officers on these details have this sort of training. The assholes at City Hall waste tons of police resources to accomplish a task that could be done to the same degree of effectiveness by providing a handful of officers with advanced and specialized bodyguard training.

Having yourself followed around by dozens of cops isn't realistic security. It's delusions of grandeur. Two men, tops, with the right training gets this job done.

Cook County Hospital strike brewing?

Looks like Cook County President Preckwinkle may have created a little problem for herself with her demanding that Cook County health system cut back more in their budget. And their plans to cut about 300 positions is not sitting well with the nurses union, National Nurses United, that represent 1,300 registered nurses in the system and have been working without a contract for two years now.

The National Nurses United union have reported they are already being strained from the shortage of personal in the health system and predicted earlier this month that the Cook County health system, to help ease the budget gap, would probably cut 1,000 jobs for the 2011 budget. On Wednesday night they took a vote that was in the favor of striking not only for the shortage but for the wages of new nurses and other concerns.

The Watchdogs: CHA boss has security detail, too

By Chris Fusco
Staff Reporter/cfusco@suntimes.com
Last Modified: Dec 28, 2010 01:18AM


Lewis A. Jordan, CEO of the Chicago Housing Authority, has a Chicago Police security detail — a fact police had refused to disclose but the CHA confirmed Monday after a Chicago Sun-Times report about the costs of protecting public officials.

Personal police protection for Jordan and his predecessors dates to 1999, when then-CEO Phillip Jackson announced and had begun attending community meetings about the agency’s controversial plan to tear down high-rise public-housing buildings and relocate residents.

“As you can imagine, that was kind of a contentious deal and there were security issues,” said Adaku Onyeka, a CHA spokeswoman.

Jordan, a former Rockwell Gardens resident, became the authority’s CEO in late 2007. The CHA now is reviewing whether he still needs a security detail because its Plan for Transformation is nearly complete and tensions have eased, Onyeka said.

The police department refused to identify any of the four city officials who have security details, citing concerns about their safety. The Sun-Times confirmed Mayor Daley, Treasurer Stephanie Neely and Ald. Edward M. Burke (14th), chairman of the City Council’s Finance Committee, all have police bodyguards.

Since the start of 2007, the combined security tab for Chicago, Cook County and state government officials has amounted to at least $26.9 million, according to Monday’s Sun-Times “The Watchdogs” report.

Still no reporting of the CPD detail for the Cardinal. That detail has been going for many years. The Cardinal's house detail on 1st Watch was very hard to get, usually a detail one retired from.

Harley Schinker currently is the Chief of Police of Lyons. Illinois.

He also still weighs in at 500 pounds.

The question that I have is "how did he pass the required fitness standards to become a sworn police officer in the State of Illinois?" I doubt that he could run a mile and one/half in fifteen minutes much less do one sit up.

Remember he was the Chief of Police in Long Beach, Mississippi for four years and a resident of that state. It was therefore necessary for him to become recertified in Illinois as a law enforcement officer.

The Cardinal has a CPD detail at his home. FACT. It is done by the 18th District. I could have sworn that there was something called "seperation between church and state"


Typical liberal ass hole. there is no such thing as "seperation (sic) between church and state". Go read the constitution. That term is just liberal ACLU bull shit.

Shortshanks prolly doesnt even know we have a subway, let alone figure out how to get on it.

In regards to the Cardinal, I have been on datails where he is.
He is driven by a priest, uses a church owned car, no police involved. No lead or tail cars, just on plain black car.
Ant they ASK of they can park there, and say THANK YOU!!!
This is a word that Jesse never said to an honest ppolice officer.
And yes, I have had him on details too.

Fact, Preckwinkle asked for a gaurd detail.....WTF !!!!!

True..She dumped her C.C.S.P.D. trained detail and requested C.P.D.also wanted them to be all black. Jody said no.

I don't believe preckwinkle mandated the officers be black. He husband is white as is her head assistant in the 4Th Ward. I can believe she drives herself. As alderwoman she would be seen out on foot following up on concerns of her ward. She is not a prima donna! The officers driving may be black, but that request would not come out of her mouth!

It did!!!

Did anyone else catch this?

At least two major network newcasts, including George Stephanopolous (sp?) said that Obama was going to vacation in "HOME STATE OF HAWAII."

If that is the case I guess that we don't have to worry about him running for mayor or senator in a couple of years.

Cardinal Francis George is the fourth. God Bless you Mayor Jane Byrne. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season. ---from a very grateful PO from the 018th District who was around when you were Mayor

DITTO from another old 18th District Cop; but the Cardinal only has a Detail of someone at his house at night.

Years ago, I had to direct traffic at the house for a birthday party for one of the previous cardinals. I thought it was a punishment but I did it as best as I could. Later a young priest in civilian clothes came out to thank me and shake my hand. He palmed me a $20 bill and insisted I take it. So much like feeling it was a punishment.

Does Rev. Meeks ever do that to all the cops assigned at his mega-church.?

(Hint, Father Pflager has a CPD guard that goes with him and was with him on occasions when he was arrested on some of his stunts.)

The Cardinal's mansion is a 018 foot post. I dont think its someone from the govt. security detail makin sgt pay. Yeah its a good spot but its only at the mansion. The Cardinal was at our church for a mass recently and the only people with him were clergy. Maybe his security detail is undercover, dressed as priests. I know Dick likes to keep his bodyguards out of site, but as far as I could tell the Cardinal had no detail with him.

Just a little info for anonymous-PALCU is at the Forest Preserve and he has NOTHING to do with Preckwinkle security. He was appointed by Stroger and is the chiefs buddy. All three of them will be out before long. He is a major snake I will grant you that but he is part of the old guard.

I know exactly who it is but im not tellin because It would probably bring the entire detail down in flames all together... im not a hater so I wont post it plus I use to work with a guy who is now working on detail "number 4"... I admit its pretty rediculous but if you had the spot im sure you wouldnt complain about it... but yes, it is a complete waste of manpower and money right john boy!!!!

The cardinal is NOT the 4th detail handled by Detached Services. That has always been manned by the heaviest of the heavy in 018.

120+ posts and not one definitive answer on who is getting this detail. Apparently it IS top secret...

12/28/2010 01:39:00 AM


The Cardinal has on duty PO's on the City payroll protecting his mansion. Heavy weights from 018 or Detached Services (unit 543) makes no difference, the Police Officers are on the city payroll and do protect the Cardinal.

The Watchdogs: CHA boss has security detail.
Question: If he needs security to deal with these animals, why is it okay to move them into formerly safe neighborhoods in the City & Suburbs and provide residents with less & less Police protection?
We should recoup money from the devlopers and the crooked politicians for the CHA property they made Millions on to help pay for additional Police to protect us from our new neighbors.
Ask the family of Officer Wortham if it was a good idea to assimilate these animals into decent neighborhoods?

Remember he was the Chief of Police in Long Beach, Mississippi for four years and a resident of that state. It was therefore necessary for him to become recertified in Illinois as a law enforcement officer.

Not so. As long as he was hired as a LEO in Illinois within 5 years of his CPD retirement date, he did not have to be recertified.

Or, dumbass, it could be Thomas Jefferson that coined the term originally; quoting our Constitution, he wrote, "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State."

Dear Superintendent:

I work at the Headquarters, M-F, weekends and holidays off. I am very greatful for my job, however, I was sick and I used all my COMP time in between medical time. I am a mother of young daughters, and I miss all my girls' school events, and I cannot take them to the doctor when they get sick, because I have no time due to take, and with just 7-8 days (personal and Bf, there are not enough days to take off through the year. I also have some personal business to attend, such as going to the doctor for tests, which I am not able to attend because I don't have time off to take. I would like to ask you, are we ever going to have 4/2 or 10 hour day? Please advise. Thank you very much and Happy Holidays to you and your family.
_______________________________

Honey, honey, honey!!!

I realize that down at HQ your weapon is a mere accessory and you are and never were cut out to be the police, but you have to take the good with the bad sometimes! In that you are the ONLY person on the ENTIRE Chicago Police Department who misses family functions, I have a suggestion for you. The districts are very short manpower and we could easily arrange for you to push a beat car on midnights. This would entail getting out of the car in the cold and the snow and handling jobs (eek, reports), making arrests (don't worry, everyone you come into contact with has had a shower in the last week or so), and playing nice with the guys and gals on the watch (we're not that bad). You might even get a duck sometimes to get home and sleep for a half hour or so before you have to haul those bothersome kids of yours off to school.

You poor thing. My heart aches for you.
