The First Cut

  • Nearly 400 officers assigned to specialized citywide units and district tactical teams will don uniforms to boost police visibility on the streets with the approach of warmer weather and the increased violence that comes with it, the Chicago Police Department said Friday.

    More than 70 other officers already have been moved from specialized assignments to strengthen patrol operations, Interim Superintendent Terry Hillard said.

    "Patrol is the backbone of the Chicago Police Department," Hillard said at a news conference at police headquarters. "Every other unit in this police department, even the superintendent's office, is a support unit for patrol."

No one disbanded. The "tact in uniform" is a replay of a few years ago. We're seeing smoke, maybe a little bit of mirror here. Again, this isn't a criticism of Hillard. He doesn't do the testing, screening and hiring. He also has been in charge for barely two weeks and any changes will be narrow in scope.

Patrol may be the backbone, but it's still being treated as the ass.

tact teams have been in uniform in the summer for the past 10 years or so. Nothing new here. Every may or so after spring inspection we have to be in uniform until mid sept. Yes, this is the smoke you were speaking of.

On the one hand, Hillar initially stated weeks back that all the "good" officers had been taken out of patrols. This could be interpreted properly as a slight to the good officers in patrol. Those who remained in patrol have served as the backbone of the department under extraordinarily trying conditions under Weis, where manpower was stripped but responsibilities were not.


This does not help explain why the above quote was not a slight to those in patrol, but does at least help show his underlying concern for the conditions of patrol under Weis. It would still be nice to see Hillard explain a bit about what he meant by the quote, but when was the last time one of these guys ever had to explain anything to the rank and file.

I don't agree that "patrol is the backbone" of the department as The supe says. I feel that patrol is the FOUNDATION of the police department but the backbone is the specialized units such as MSF who go out there and lock up the gangbangers who are shooting each other.
If the beat copper stopped doing what they do (nothing) there would be no effect. If we stopped locking up gangbangers be it for gun, dimebags or whatever the savage would spin out of control so who is the REAL backbone of the Dept?

Let's take all the units of cops in the patrol division and put them into the patrol division. That way they can beef up the patrol division.

Wow 153!!!! Talk about arrogance!!!! I work in a unit and would never talk the way you did about patrol. Patrol handles the calls, all of them. I give them respect, many in patrol have earned it. I guess you went straight from the academy to a unit??? U were so damn good you didn't need to learn how to do a battery case report.

Sorry hero from MSF but I go to court 3 to 4 times a week from the amount of activity I have. I see the lack of quality arrests made by MSF. Instead of MSF you should be called PCS by pissbum. The unit could also be called no probable cause. The final title for the unit could be "I've never heard of the 4th amendment unit". The testimony given by officers in MSF is terrible at a minimum. One day you clowns will find yourself in federal court for the BS arrests you've made. I'm sure you will still be the greatest after you loose a few thousand dollars or worse.

One day hero from 153 when you grow up and go to a unit that makes quality arrests and get convictions like GEU, Narcotics, or Gang Investigations please brag all you want. Until then please STFU!!!! Send all the idiots from MSF and TRU back to the districts!!!!

What a crock of sh!!!t. I would like to believe that Hilliard knows the tact teams are in the patrol division it doesn't matter if they are wearing jeans or uniforms. This is just more of the usual BS smoke and mirrors. Why is it that area 2 is so short detectives that if you make a Juv arrest you have to take the kid to them. They don't have enough dicks to send one to the districts. I was there on Thur and they must of had 15 kids sitting in the SVU office. This department is falling apart and the bosses are just worried about the next check.

PLEASE, GIVE ME A F'IN BREAK. The city would fallapart if patrol stopped doing it's job. MSF is only in one or two districts were it's easy to lock up gangbangers. They are on every street corner in some districts. MSF isn't tied to the radio like a beat copper. It's pretty hard to do any proactive policing when you have to run job to job because Patrol is so short handed and you have to respond to your jobs. So F-You when you say Patrol does nothing, Patrol is keeping this City together, not the "Strike Force"

I still don't understand why we need TRU and MSF. I used to be a part of TRU and hate to say it but they aren't bringing in any better of an arrest than the beat cars do in the districts. Five officers hanging out in the station while one processes a misdemeanor weed arrest is ridiculous. Plus there is no reason why there should be a backlog of calls. Put those officers back into districts where they belong.

And just a few days ago, when the rumor mill started churning out that these units were going to be stripped of personnel and they would be sent back to patrol I see comments such as "if I have to go back to a beat car I ain't doing shit!"

Or, my personal favorite....."after all I've done they want to kick me back to a beat car? Fuck them! I won't do shit!"

Hey Terry, do patrol a favor and keep these whinning marys in their units. At least they keep all the piss bums off the streets.

Eventually the truth will come out. You will never see the old numbers of Police on the street again. The Police budget supports the other city agencies such as human services.
Now with the election over, the new mayor daley has to give back to the leaders of the link card nation and start up the caps program again. He has to give spots to the reverends who supported him and not the vote siphoning, "consensus candidate". He also has to find inside spots for all the phone call people that cannot hide in the fewer spots left in units. Thers is only so much money to be given out. Have to have your priorities.
So we have to help him out by bitching and moaning and going after each other so it will be easier for them to make the cuts that they want to make. having us distracted or pointing fingers to the needed or not cuts.

Wow. You obviously have been out of a beat car for WAY too long. When I get out of the car, in uniform, I COMMAND RESPECT. If I was in plain clothes I would also command respect. You do that by speaking with authority and showing that you are in charge and you OWN the corner. You are not entitled to wear plainclothes, or drive an unmarked. You are sneaking up on rocks and dimebags. You are not saving the world in your jeans and Carharts.

Instead of complaining about Patrol, MSF, TRU, etc. Call your elected public officials a hold them to their campaign promises, HIRE MORE POLICE OFFICERS. Everybody has complaints but nobody has real solutions. While you’re at it, have your friends and family call as well.
All they are doing is moving people around so they don't have to hire. Everybody seems happy because people are getting dumped. Which unfortunately has made people show true colors and made me realize in fact how divided we really are amongst our dept. That is not the solution, in fact that is a problem. Once again because the city does not want to hire, and everybody here is sipping the kool-aid.
As much effort as you put into reading and posting on this blog, spend half that time and send an e-mail to the outgoing and incoming elected public officials for the city as well as our respective bargaining units.
I’m not trying to get everybody to sing kumbaya and hold hands but we need to get our heads out of our holes and stick together on this issue, perhaps another march at city hall once Rahm gets in office???

I am very sorry to report to you that patrol is in very bad shape because the quality of cops in patrol is the worst it has ever been. These very incompetent cops are now teaching younger officers how to be very bad cops.

The state of patrol is beyond repair. At least 60% cannot write a complete sentence in a case report. There are repeated calls to the Area asking what to do or how to report the most basic police job. If asked, I am certain that half of patrol does not know the elements of a burglary.

Unfortunately for us, too many young officers who would have become good cops left patrol to chase rocks and impound cars. That is all they have learned over the past three years. Now they have 5-8 years on and they still don't have a clue how to do real patrol police work.

So now we have a patrol division filled with many incompetents and we are adding go-getters who don't have a fucking clue what they are doing if the person they're talking to isn't holding drugs.

In two months, there will be a major traffic accident with multiple fatalities. Half the watch will either not respond or respond intending to do nothing. The other half will be searching the dead for rocks. Meanwhile, no one will have the slightest clue what they should be doing or how to clearly report what happened.

I have only 16 years on the job. But I remember having every beat car 2 manned. Every 40s and 50s car 2 manned. 2 or 3 wagons manned. 6 Sgts on the street. This was 3rd watch. So many officers not enough cars that some got to be the plain clothes car.
Where have all these officers gone?
1 man cars everywhere. No rapid response cars. 1 wagon. Etc, etc, etc.

I'm actually in a unit and agree with you to a sense. However, not all beat coppers are out there doing "nothing". Due to their work it allows you and I to do what we do.

Most of the time they can't hunt like you do because they are handling jobs. So have some respect for them and stop treating them as though they are not our brothers and sisters. Instead of bashing them why don't you help out by coding the BS jobs so they can get a lunch?

153 you are an misguided, in a beat car if focused you will lock up robbers, burgulars, rapist & thieves who prey on real victims. So you keep the agg batts to gangbangers down, on my scale working a beat car you provide service the working people and families of chicago justice which tops providing Gds and Lks less shooting upon them. So you know how to find dope and a pistol. Or serve the occasional warrant. Learn how to follow a crime pattern, take DUI driver off the street, answer calls in a dist to learn the players and people. Too bad real police is above traffic stops on gangbangers which is the focus of Tru & MSF. I know you've look cool riding three deep, while I stopped for a hand waver of a crying teenage girl who said "this guy tried to kidnap me at the park" offender went to prison.

Hahaha. #1 Get over yourself, you're not that special for locking up bangers for dimebags. #2The savage spun out of control a long time ago regardless of the efforts of MSF, TRU, tac, gangs, etc. And finally, when you get dumped back to a beat car, be sure to walk into roll call and announce that you were once the backbone of the dept and that the beat coppers do nothing. Let us know how that goes, superhero.

This is in response to Mr. "MSF is the real backbone of the Dept." guy.

You can't be serious, did you really just say that MSF is the real backbone of the Dept? You guys are really guzzling down the Kool-Aid. They’re going to have to get some convertible Tahoe’s for MSF to accommodate all the fat-heads and inflated egos in that overhyped unit. Sure, you guys are really making a difference out there. If it wasn't for MSF the west side would really be a crime ridden cesspool and not the stable decent community it is today.

Get over yourself! Some of that ink from your cool MSF tattoo has gotten into your bloodstream and gone straight to your brain. The Patrolman was policing the ghetto when MSF was just a twinkle in J-Fled’s eye and rest assured the Patrolman will be policing the ghetto long after that hair-gel of yours has turned hard and crusty.

You are the reason this department has turned into shit. I can't believe you actually had these thoughts going through your little brain. Maybe if you worked patrol you would have a clue. Why do you think the departments "leaders" are so fucking clueless? Because they never worked patrol, never worked a beat, have no idea how to interact or relate to people on the street or fellow officers. They got off probation, made their phone calls and cried so they could go to a specialized unit so they could do NOTHING. Like come in with dimebags, pissers and drinkers. You fucking tools in msf would not have a clue on how to handel a domestic, csa, or a homicide, you strokes would fuck it up three ways to Sunday. You dorks in msf think your bad asses but I can see it in your eyes when you come into our district (15) to fuck things up, you bitches are scared. I have ZERO respect for your unit and cannot wait till they put you back in patrol then we'll see how bad you really are and what you know.

If they'd get rid of IPRA and cuy IAD back to 2 officers and a Lieutenant, we could all get back to "grass roots" policing. You know, they get out of line and they're face gets planted in the GRASS and if you see them again you grab them by the hair until you tear the ROOTS out. It worked very well in the 70's, interest rates are where they were back then. Sounds like a win win situation!

COP WHO SAVED MAN FROM BURNING VAN AN 'ANGEL'

"... Chicago Police Officer Claudio Salgado saw smoke pouring out of the van on Tuesday as he drove down Archer Avenue on the way to start his shift. Peter O’Hagan, 61, ignored Salgado, who was shouting and waving at him to get away, and kept digging through the van until Salgado grabbed him and dragged him away.

Salgado pulled him over a concrete highway embankment along Interstate 55 near Throop Street. Seconds later, the van exploded.

Cockbag,
Your claim that individuals in patrol do nothing is false. I've written more search warrants and made more quality arrests than most people who get into special units and have done most of it in a uniform. By the way, how many of your "dimebag" arrests result in convictions? If you are not getting real convictions you are not doing shit.

There are good points on these posts and posts that are completely ridiculous. All the rumors are driving me insane. One post stated how officers in uniform are challenged more….I agree 100%. I don’t see nearly as many uniform beat cars making street stops as I did over 10 years ago. You cant handle these animals like we used to and they know it. If you think these animals don’t read this blog…..your living in a land of make believe. Too many cameras. Nobody wants to end up on CBS at 10. Look what’s going on around you.

I've worked both tac and the watch. There is a respect for non-uniform PO's in general that beat officers don't get. Maybe the beat officers just don't give a rat's fuck about the animals in the ghetto? If I drive by as they "do what they do" it's because I could give a fuck if they live or die, they don't care about our safety or well being. The only people I'll go balls-out for are fellow police officers and family of police officers. EVERYONE else can go fuck themselves....as I drive on by!

Wow!

Well years ago I worked in 153 SOS late '90's to early 2000's...GOD if you need to talk like this or BS so much and get tattoos and weird shit like that there is something definitely wrong with you...

Most guys I worked with there had some great pinches and successes (per Jimmy "Dogs" "Darlings Gun photo board) but nobody ever gave a shit even then most guys just did their thing to get court time and the bulk of the discussions were at the SGJ on the 10th floor or at 44-2. WHO GIVES A FUCK!

Tact guys and Narcotics guys get great experience having the TIME to sit back and watch and surveil shit and piece together search warrants....SOS never had that luxury....HEY maybe that was the problem? WHATEVER!

So anyways whatever 153 is now or has been in the last 5 years or so is a microcosm of what it used to be and will never know true CHARACTERS that decorated that gun board to make some bosses career!

Distrtrict tact teams pull the same bs. Last time I checked we are all police officers so why in the hell can't an outside unit or tact officer handle the fu@#en paper for a traffic crash or a simple battery report. That is were the arrogance just shouts out. If you are that important, you would not be a police officer, so stop the ego and just be the police.

As a detective, I know that there is a collective problem with TRU and MSF that I never experienced with other units like narcotics and SOS. Although this problem comes up time and again with any case, the problem is pervasive when the case involves either TRU or MSF.

In every case I have handled involving TRU or MSF, I have been lied to. Every single case. Most times the lies were meaningless and easily corrected or ignored, other times the lies could not be repaired and the case fell apart.

I don't know if it is supervision or just a case of group think. I don't think that these officers are corrupt. I think that there is a habitual effort to one up others, even others on their own team. Maybe it is because many of these officers are insecure in their spot and feel they are always on the verge of getting dumped. Guys in narcotics and SOS didn't have this kind of insecurity. Maybe they've gotten so used to lying that it has become second nature. Maybe they're even lying to themselves.

I believe that if any of the officers handled their case as an individual beat car, this would not be a problem. But, when these officers become a member of TRU/MSF it definitely becomes a problem.

Unfortunately for the younger cops, they have no idea that years down the road this nonsense will cause them real problems.

There is some slight truth to Tact wearing the uniform and being in plain clothes. It really does seem that people are reluctant to tell you information when you are in uniform as opposed to when you are civilian dress.

If you disagree with me you obviously never been on a scene of a shooting (in plain clothes) and someone whispered "aye, detective..." and went on to tell you information.

But still, it all depends on how you talk to people.

Instead of complaining about Patrol, MSF, TRU, etc. Call your elected public officials a hold them to their campaign promises, HIRE MORE POLICE OFFICERS.

I agree we need more police officers but first we have to weed out all the inside dogasses that are being hidden at headquarters, and in every district commanders office...there are at least 11 people doing jobs that could be done very well by only 3 or 4officers or better yet civilians....has any of these stupid ass commanders ever heard of the phrase cross training....so the review officers could fill in for district secretary and vise versa..maybe even district secretary or their assistant learning timekeeping, so a full duty officer isn't in there assisting the poor civiian who has about 3 hours of work a day. There are so many people being hidden inside on this department it's almost comical, unless you're the officer needing back up and nobody is there for you...

To the young BOY who works TAC and says that he will do a thing back in uniform, I after many years and I just bet maybe I have 25 yrs on you that if you are a good copper, it doesn't matter if you are naked, if you are good at your job in fighting crime you can do it in uniform too, The problem eith you youngsters is that you think that you are secret agents in plain clothes and that nobody can do it better then you, grow up, if you don't like being the police, go find another job for $10.00 an hour.
