Swiping is Here?

Admin Fax message out today... or at least brought to our attention today.

007, 009 and HQ start swiping on Valentine's Day.

Remember, 7.5 minutes = the full quarter hour. This is going to bury the overtime budget in short order.

UPDATE: We may have gotten an old version of the directive? Someone says it's for civilians citywide on 14 Feb and 007, 009, and HQ were pilot district? How did that all work out for everyone then?

-------

What would bury the budget is if the 7.5 minutes would be APPROVED by the watch commander for POLICE WORK that you really did.

Not that many ARE doing police work ....

I sure in the hell ain't.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just because you screwed off in the locker room for more than 7.5 minutes DOES NOT mean you will get overtime pay.

You will still have to justify the overtime and have it approved by the watch commander on a slip.

If this means all the dollies, tact team glory boys, foot patrol 5year dogs and other special do-nothings will have to work a full day like the rest of us ...
well, then I am for it!!!

Starks on his way out issued the swipe order, and Jfled canceled the order when he came here.

Now Jfled is on his way out, and he issues the swipe order. Obviously cpd superintendents who don't get their way must flex their muscles.

These goofs truly have no idea that there are more people on this department working free overtime than there are people stealing time. Its gonna cost them.

And just because someone is at work for 8.5 hours doesn't mean they actually do any work.

When I started 16 years ago, they were saying this system will work. I know the knronos system. I ran it at 2 prior jobs.

It will never work for CPD. One missed swipe by at least 50 Cops per day per district per shift will take the average person 8 hours to run/update all the exceptions a daily report will produce.

It will never work unless you have a fulltime person assigned to fix all the missed swipes everyday. Sounds like someone is going to pocket a kickback for an updated version of Kronos that wont work.

How about deflating all the over inlfated egos and build moral back up you idiots!

If you have Kronos, the system does work. Supervisors will have the ability to override the system and change times . Everything you do leaves a record. In private industry, you have about 7 minutes on either side of you starting time to swipe in. Swiping in after this does not guarentee OT. The OT goes to a supervisor on a weekly basis for approval. Most places had to put a camera on the machines to stop people from swiping in their friends or damaging the machines. Get ready for this also. All of those ghost employees and those who like to come late and leave early will have to change their ways. Swiping someone in or out is usually a offense that will cost you your job, as it should.Welcome to the rest of the world.

I worked for a suburban agency before coming here. They tried the swipe thinking that it would save them money. After three months, they took the machine down. They realized that cops worked more unpaid hours than they realized. After the swipe went in, the overtime went through the roof. Same will happen here.

I work in a civilian city department. We've been swiping since at least 2001. Therefore we're not lucky enough to get to leave early without burning time. And haven't been for at least 10 years.

Our department has a TON of overtime. And it has to be APPROVED by a supervisor for us to get paid for it (oh, wait, we DON'T get paid for it). If we don't swipe out until 15 minutes, 30 minutes, an HOUR after our shift ends, it's just on us. We won't get credit for overtime unless a supervisor says "Yes, he/she was actually working."

Well I did not believe this until I saw it from my own 2 eyes. It appears that the great, tactical, SOS replacement MSF are implementing a new tactic on the streets in the 011 District..."IMPOUND FOR A GUN"

These hard charging MSF hair gels are pulling over cars and threaten to impound vehicle they offer the "deal" of...."get me a gun and I WONT impound your car".

Listen hair gels. This new "tactic" of yours is going to do nothing but jam you up!! Atleast when the real SOS did a deal they had the guy on FELONY charges! (that was about 5 years ago when we could do real police work)

Bottom line boys and girls, wait... let me speak in MSF lingo..."boyz and girlz" making deals for guns ESPECIALLY if ur not even getting them on REAL charges is going to F*CK you one of these days.

Wise up and be just continue with 2 cars (6 officers) pulling over cars, then ALL of u bringing it in to 011th District and processing ur (1) bag weed or TVB. The "gun" deals are just showing how much you don't know about this job!!

Re-read the order. It has nothingto do with swiping. It is referring to the a & a's. A couple years ago we switched from paper to automated a&a's. (you know, the kind Karen B from wta HATES because everyone can see when she is carried code 49).
This order now mandates that civilians be put on the automated a&a's as they have been on paper ones up till now. That's all it is.

This order now mandates that civilians be put on the automated a&a's as they have been on paper ones up till now. That's all it is.

2/12/2011 11:29:00 AM



Civilians have already been on the automated A & A's.
The D.N. was for a pilot program in 007, 009, and HQ.

The Fax Msg. that came out Friday states, " the pilot program becomes operational on 14 February 2011, at 0001 hours, for ALL CIVILIAN DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL, regardless of unit of assignment.

So, right now it is for civilians only.

If you have a useless civilian or sownr for that matter in you unit, and no one does anything about them or gives them work to do or makes sure they spend a full day at work, then the only person to blame is the supervisors, commander, unit commanding officer etc. No one else.

Just so you know, the Kronos readers used for swiping also require placing your hand on the reader for a scan. They also have CCTV cameras trained on the readers to timestamp and verify scans. It's a pimpy system. Welcome to the world the rest of the city work force has to live with. And by the way, CPDis not the only city department running 24/7.

Hey Jodi, you want to cut the FAT literally? Then how about getting rid of all the useless civilians that do absolutely nothing but suck up free air and take up space.
People come in, show their face for a few hours, shuffle papers, utilize the xerox machines for there PT gigs, and collect a nice free pay check. Do something about it!

Are you kidding me? They order civilians to swipe while the sworn start late and leave early. Talk about part time gigs and side stuff while working. This is a huge double standard to monitor one group and let the other to come and go as they please. Be careful what you wish for.

99% of coppers are late for work every day. Not going to happen.Very had to punch in early if you are not at work. Can not make you punch in and out without you punching out and in for lunch. The city can not have their cake and eat it to. This is the very reason we don't punch in and out now. believe me I did it for 2 years at the post office.

Everybody has got to read the above. Do you know that she has the child of a former deputy superintendent and she named that child "Michele"? And it caused a big todo at the time for the D/S and his wife and family? You think these payoffs weren't done to protect the D/S? Figure it out. DD has sued twice now, once for Lt and once for Capt.

I agree with you. Stone has to go. Who does he think he is? Asking me to do my job? The nerve of that guy.Get to work on time? How dare him. Asking me to do SOMETHING during my tour of duty. Captain Egan never did. And then, to ask that patrolman who hasn't even possessed a mover book in about five years to get one and write a mover once in awhile? What, now I have to write a mover this year? What next? And that stuff about trying to rewrite the car rotation system so we can get the same squad car as much as humanly possible instead of a different car everyday? He ain't foolin me. No sir. And don't tell me about how he went out and bought that new stove to replace the roach infested stove from the civil war that we had in the lockup. I don't want to hear about it. He just wanted to show off his cooking expertise when he puts out that delicious spread every holiday.He's not fooling me. And no, I don't care about his trying to make the station a safer place by lobbying for a buzzer system at the front door so those bent on harming the desk crew can't get in. Who does he think he is caring about us lowly PO's? You are right Stone has to go. I would much prefer that head case that preceeded him come back. I like being yelled at and being treated like a child. I like being able to cut the tension in the air with a knife. Yeah, Stone has to go. When you grow up.

I work in a civilian city department. We've been swiping since at least 2001. Therefore we're not lucky enough to get to leave early without burning time. And haven't been for at least 10 years.

Our department has a TON of overtime. And it has to be APPROVED by a supervisor for us to get paid for it (oh, wait, we DON'T get paid for it). If we don't swipe out until 15 minutes, 30 minutes, an HOUR after our shift ends, it's just on us. We won't get credit for overtime unless a supervisor says "Yes, he/she was actually working."

Sergeants aren't expected or required to stay for the 45 minutes, which would actually be 30minutes because it's at the rate of time and one-half. That comp time was negotiated in lieu of a pay raise. It was another way for the city to avoid paying monies that were pensionable. In fact, they're not paying it at all because it's comp time, not cash.

Getting O.T. approval from a supervisor? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Fat chance. Oh, I can see the O.T. piling up once this starts. BUT, once that happens, the brain trusts downtown will have a fit and demand all unit commanders do something to stop the hemorrhaging.

What will probably happen is that they will simply deny the O.T. and have someone from the next watch take over your job.

They tried that several years ago. Not sure of the official reason as to why they stopped it but I could guess.

Well, you can say, if you want that detectives are assigned, but this is really no different then any other rank. Some sergeants are given the rank based on test scores and some on merit, same as detectives. The only difference is a sergeant cannot be demoted, a detective can. But, the detective can file a grievance and the city better be ready to justify this as compared to what they do city wide with all detectives. Not an easy thing to do. I bet you cannot name one detective that lost their rank in the last 20 years.

Actually, I have made rank. That's why I emphasize that the detective position is not a rank, but an assignment. Officers should be the ones offended by detectives saying they've been promoted. I've had plenty over the years act as though they out rank P.O.s, or even supervisors for that matter.

That comp time was negotiated in lieu of a pay raise. It was another way for the city to avoid paying monies that were pensionable. In fact, they're not paying it at all because it's comp time, not cash.

************************************

That time was given as a contract issue so that sgts would be compensated for time spent after check-off reviewing and signing reports. Check off is supposed to be at the end of the tour, not 15-20 minutes before as is common practice. So lets say you are working an early car under the old 8.5 hour tour. 0700-1530 should have meant that checkoff was at 1530, not 1510 or 1515 or whatever we could get away with. Following that rule, twe would not get the reports till 1530 and would stay after 1530 reading and signing them. Hence the 30 or now 45 minutes time on the books. And yes, it is a way for the city to dodge more pensionable time.

And considering that we could sell back 200 hrs each year if we chose, that time could be converted to cash. Considering furlos and taking days off we could earn about 150 hrs a year with the extra time. And you can believe this, those 150 hours were dwarfed by the number of slips I held so people could leave early. And I don't give a shit whether you believe that or not. I always felt that giving ducks was one thing I could do for working coppers, and I did it gladly.

So to the jealous people who want to see that extra time taken away via swiping, it won't matter. That time is granted every day that a sgt comes to work, no matter your assignment. Every sgt, every work day. We did not put in slips for it, it's automatic. I let it build up, and when I retired I converted as much of it as I could to deferred comp, and I use the rest to play golf, I bought a car and I take my wife on vacations. In fact I will get sell back checks for two more years

And I am not apologizing for it.

28 yrs and gone

Oh yes it is. The timekeeper can monitor the cada swipes and see who was late. Then the watch commander signs a par form docking your check for the 15 minutes because you were late. It is signed and sent to Finance and you'll never know, because you don't sign it or see it, and then they deduct 15 minutes off of your check. That's the truth. THEN, they can always start writing you up as well. Don't kid yourself. This is not something that can't be done. It is already being done.
