Another Nominee?

That Sneed - she's pimping big time for the Rahmulans. She's jumping in with both feet big time:
  • Sneed hears rumbles John Timoney, 62, the Irish born former top cop of Philly and Miami, is being floated as a possible pick for Chicago Police superintendent.

    Translation: “He’s highly regarded and served with the New York Police force (from 1967 until 1998), where he rose to the No. 2 spot,” said a Sneed source. “He was also a protégé of LAPD Chief Bill Bratton, when Bratton was New York’s Police commissioner. (Sneed is told Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel is a big fan of Bratton, who expressed no interest in leaving LA.)

    Backshot: Emigrating to America in 1961, Timoney served as Philly’s Police commissioner from 1998 to 2003 before leading Miami’s police force from 2003 to 2010. Timoney “was recruited to be chief in Miami by the business community to reduce police-related shootings,” a source said. He turned around the scandal-ridden department, the source said: “He was highly successful.”

    The kicker: Timoney, who is now serving as an advisor to a home security company, is also a close friend of Philly’s police commissioner, Charles Ramsey, who has been reported to be a top contender for the Chicago job.

To "reduce police related shootings"? We'd hope that means encouraging stiffer sentencing for jagoffs that shoot at police and more training for police so assailants never get the opportunity to shoot at the police again. Or breathe again for that matter. Because anything else is too stupid to even contemplate.

Is he a brainless, ass-kisser with no original thought and will he follow the mayor's direction without question?

If not he's never going to fit in here as superintendent.

Fortunately CPD doesn't need that.

That's why we had the last guy.

It's a shame that none of the current department members is smart enough to run CPD, at least in the opinion of the politicians.

Can we please fucking stop with philadelphias rejects. Just say no! First, the fed and now these other two. How about some true home grown talent? Ramsey was pissed he didn't get the top spot and now he's going to take sloppy seconds? WTF! All we are looking at apparently is mercenaries. Fuck, pay me 300K per year and I would do the fucking job.

Sad state of affairs that J- holes top two deputies aren't even worthy to be considered for the top spot or at the very least temp fill ins.

Dana Starks, probably the dumbest super this dept has ever had, held everything together for seven months till J-hole stepped in. Hey Dana did you get that FBI security clearance yet?

I highly question the real motives of those who want such a job at that age.

SCC--Could you please post something about a benefit that a lot of officers probably aren't aware of? That is the fact that St. Xavier University offers complete programs for completing your undergrad degree, as well as an MBA program--and also a certificate program to be a 'Certifed Fraud Examiner'--which I might add, is the fastest growing profession around.

Please advise officers to take advantage of this FREE, yes FREE benefit. If you get an 'A' you pay nothing, but you have to pay something as your grade goes down from there. Apply yourself and getting an 'A' is easy.

If I had to pay for this out of pocket, I figured it would be about $35,000. You do have to stay on the job two years after completion however.

Classes are from 1630-1930 at the Academy, usually Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

It's not easy, but it is a lot of fun and extremely rewarding. You get to know people from all over the department, and the professors are awesome. Plus all the St. X. staff bend over backwards to help you plan your curriculum, etc.

We didn't get diddly for a raise--this is a way to take advantage of a benefit. I have completed the fraud classes, and am about 2/3 done with my MBA.

Truthfully, I'll miss it once I'm done in December. Please, please look into this benefit and take advantage of it before it's gone.

Sneed Should check her facts.. Bratton is no longer the Chief of LAPD. William Joseph "Bill" Bratton (born October 6, 1947) was the chief of police of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). He previously served as the New York City Police (NYPD)Commissioner and Boston Police (BPD)Commissioner.

On September 11, 2009, he was awarded with the honorary title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II. In early August 2009, Bratton unexpectedly announced that effective October 31, 2009, he would resign his position as Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department to take a position as Chairman of Altegrity Risk International in New York City. On September 16, 2010, Bratton became the chairman of Kroll, an Altegrity company.

SOOOO SNEED-less, he is not in Los Angles, to not be intrested in not leaving Los Angles. You mam'm are an ass hat. Go back to kissing the movie and sport stars asses and leave the police department alone to slef destruct.

I seem to recall some concerns raised about Timoney in the past. Something either about a relative in Miami, or numbers fumbling or something. Maybe both.

No matter. Being a protege of Bratton does not come anywhere close to BEING Bratton. Bratton and Evans are the only two proven leaders in the last 50 years who achieved their levels of success in reducing crimes in major U.S. cities. In Bratton's case, both NYC and LA.

My best thoughts about what to do would be to use the best internal candidate (if there are any good leaders left on the CPD), and then try and hire Bratton or Evans as advisors. Maybe even pay LA 100K or 150K per year to borrow Bratton's expertise for 12-24 days a year.

It would be better than paying the retired CPD failures who are still collecting paychecks as "consultants".

The right outsider would be fine in certain circumstances. First you would need an ethical individual that has proven experience in running a major metropolitan department. Next the individual chosen must be given free reign to make decisions based upon what is right for the department and the citizens, absent meddling from the Mayor, alderman and other assorted self interest groups (Revs). This won't happen and Ramsey isn't the right person, having worked for him he is neither ethical nor is he competent, he is a politician and will bend to what keeps his interests safe. Those old enough to remember his scandal here, when his narcotics team almost went to club fed know all about his ethics! As for the current exempts there isn't a single one that isn't for himself first and foremost and actually none could do the job, especially Peterson, who spent most of his non exempt career on bullshit Fed details.

Timoney is very involved in PERF...not a bad guy at all, but I don't see him coming here and dealing with all the political BS that we have to offer here. It was POLITICS that got him booted out of the Miami PD (the new Mayor vowed to send him packing...and now, the new Mayor of Miami has been given the boot himself thanks to a voter referendum...something we should have in place here in Shitcago too!). Timoney should probably be tired of running PDs by now...I would think that being a Chief in 3 major Depts. would be enough for anybody.

Anybody that thinks Ramsey is a "Leader of Men" has been hitting the crack pipe too hard. Take a hard look at his undeniable record the last 15 years. First, left Chicago in a huff when he didn't get the top job, and went to DC where he immediately called in the FEDS to recommend discipline for DC cops because they were too "Trigger Happy". Maybe thats what Rahm likes about Ramsey....that he loves FED cock, that he would be Rahm's best "Spittle Licker"? Ramsey has proven that his is a piece of shit, and that he is as far removed from being a real cop as Jfraud was/is. I dont know who would make the best supe, but I know for sure we dont need another no good police hater like Ramsey to come up with another "Caps" program to fuck up the department worse than it already is!

You mean like using the military for "nation building?"

Get out the blocks and coloring books; we're all going back to kindergarten, skippity-hop...

Here --

To "reduce police-related shootings," your sidearm will be "real-time web-enabled," the safety to be unlocked remotely only after an "administrative decision" made by a pod-room full of obese, hostile, politically hired "facilitators" with ties to the "reverends."

A judge's face will be visible at all times on a TV monitor on the wall to give the appearance of legitimacy to the procedure at low cost.

Today's word, is, after all, "management," writ large.

It's the natural extension of the power of OEMC -- a true "reverse pod mission" in the inimitable style of 011, and I can in no way guarantee that the people in this room will be awake either.

There's your worst nightmare.

You're very welcome.

I can't help myself --I just watched a Canadian Film Board product, funded by some Swiss children's organization, and it has affected my mind.

Exactly the sense I get; Chicago is bad enough without us flying in the burnouts from the lost cities of the East.

There is something disturbing in places like Camden, Philadelphia, Baltimore -- an even more elaborate and rigid "old order" that has fallen even farther into disrepair, disrepute, neglect -- hopeless "urban prairie." Somehow, it just seems to come down harder on the taxpayers and easier on the bustouts than it does here -- the laws stricter and the law-breaking wilder. Government turns more on the tractable then on the troublemakers. It's just easier.

Chicago is a "younger city" -- we were once swept by fire and have since rebuilt. Maybe that has something to do with it. The East makes me want to sit down on the curb with a Ballantine Ale in a paper bag, except it'd be no use -- typically, the Newark brewery is long abandoned, and I think the stuff comes from Oklahoma or some place now...

Is there not one upright, decent, competent family man in the ranks here?

8:53, you got that right brother. Terry is a cop's cop unless you were around at the time he was judging officers guilty before the reports were even written. I forget his name, but the officer from traffic who shot the football player was thrown out like yesterday's trash as soon as Terry heard the calls from the AA community. After a lengthy chase the officer had the gall to break the football player's window with an unauthorized object rather than, cough cough, calling for backup and waiting it out. Thanks Terry you backstabbing old fuck! Terry was mostly a nice guy, but dumb as a box of rocks and as political as any exempt on the CPD.

Then there is fatso... father of an entire 11th district tac team, or at least he treated them all like his son on the team when more than half of em got promoted off a supposedly legit list. Statistically impossible? Not according to Chicago math!

There have been something like 2 or 3 or 4 exempts in the entire past 20 years who deserved so much as the rank of sergeant. You known it, I know it, and anybody with a brain in their head and a view outside the CPD knows it.

And that was EXACTLY how Daley wanted it. And that is how he could sell Weis as an "improvement".
