- Sgt. J. Sacks, Unit 020 said...
I'm the Sergeant that responded. We did not disarm ourselves as requested by the less than helpful Chicago Lakeshore Hospital staff. Officer safety first. Hell, I carry way to many weapons and would have filled several of their lockers. 19-Paul no, but a case report was prepared. I made complaints to the CPD's Legal Affairs, the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Joint Commission about the Hospital's failure to secure their staff phone from psychotic patients, lack of staff assistance to the responding officers, and the Hospital's policy of requesting the police to disarm. Note to any officer having business with the Chicago Lakeshore Hospital staff - many staffers appear hostile to the police. Use caution and stay safe. Lakeshore can have my gun when they pry it from my cold dead hands (well actually not the firearms are willed to my kids).
So why isn't this guy nominated for an exempt spot?
