Where the Axe Will Fall

Strap in:
  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel has talked about laying off more than 500 city employees and eliminating 776 vacant jobs, but he has not identified them or explained what city services will suffer.

    Now, an analysis by the Chicago Sun-Times and one of the impacted unions shows where the ax will fall — in a way that could slow response time to 911 calls or stretch call takers to the limit, decimate Chicago Public libraries and force dramatic cuts in health and human services.

    At the Office of Emergency Management and Communications, where 911 call takers have more than doubled their annual salaries in overtime over the years, the budget calls for 108 layoffs and the elimination of 80 vacancies. Seventy-three of the layoffs are recently fired Loop traffic-control-aides.

    The ranks of police dispatchers would be reduced by 45 or 10.3 percent. The number of fire communications operators would drop by 17 or 16.6 percent.

    “Management … is saying the wait time for a 911 call will go from one-to-three seconds to ten-to-fifteen seconds, possibly more. This is very disturbing,” said an OEMC employee, who asked to remain anonymous.

So not only has the Department gone from proactive to reactive in record time, we're going to go to an even slower reactive posture. And the dispatcher burnout, well, that's just an unfortunate side effect.

I do believe this little rich asshole has to be put in his place. He is raising taxes and we will get much less than what we have now in return. I am still smarting over the prospect of paying double for my water by 2015. Where the fuck has all that water and sewer service charge money gone for the last 20 years? Weren't they fixing those water pipes during that time? Who the hell knows! Nobody has any idea of how much money this city takes in each year or where it goes. How the hell can we be broke? And this little midget bastard just keeps throwing $millions around like they are quarters. Another $15 million for more CTA cameras! What a complete fucking WASTE of money! Spend all these tax dollars on cameras and there is nobody hired to watch them.

Chris Minor REPORTER

September 27, 2011

The Illinois Department of Transportation is hiring high-paid managers at salaries of up to 100-thousand dollars a year to oversee supervisors who unionized recently.

According the the Associated Press, IDOT is hiring 16 new ''operations supervisors'', who will supervise field technicians and road workers. Until now, the field technicians served as the supervisors, but the state Labor Relations Board recently gave those techs permission to join Operating Engineers Local 150. IDOT posted job announcements for the ''new'' supervisors within weeks.

''Our guys already to the all this work'', union attorney Ken Edwards told the St. Louis Post Dispatch. ''You're going to create 16 new positions that are identical to what we already do''.

According to the Associated Press, the new jobs will pay from $67,000 to $100,400 a year.

CLOSING QUOTE: “There are 14 million unemployed people in the U.S.; 9.3 million more are ‘involuntary’ part-time workers. And 2.5 million others were ‘marginally’ attached to the labor force, having not technically looked for a job for four weeks, according to the [Bureau of Labor Statistics]. That’s nearly 26 million people, almost 17 percent of the labor force. It’s an ‘army of the unemployed’ more than 10 times the size of the U.S. military and its reserves. Right now they’re despondent. But if they ever got angry, they would make Occupy Wall Street look like, well, a tea party.” — Howard Gold, columnist, MarketWatch.com

What the writer of the above comment fails to realize I think is the scope of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Protest were held world wide this weekend with turnouts in about 80 of the 190 countries out there.

The streets in Spain were jammed packed with tens of thousands. Fortunately the only violence I've heard of was in Italy which is being blamed on agent provocateurs.

You would think that after 1 day they would have gotten off their Yuppie asses and gone to check on her themselves. No, wait til 11 PM and call the police . . .

Tact teams were called out Sat night for the demonstrations downtown that are getting bigger instead of smaller. Is this the prelude to G8? And what are we going to do with a decreased presence in the streets, longer commutes from scenes back to the stations and lock-ups; delayed processing in the lock-ups because "civilians" will be working at their pace, and a radio system that will get worse with a number of radio techs laid off? This city is fucked.

The smart thing to do is hire retired police officers to work as dispatchers for half the cost and no benefits since they are already retired and receiving retirement benefits. They know what they are doing, can screen bullshit calls, speak proper English, and can relate to the strret officers.

This followed by scum-bag Al the commentator never asking where the money went all those years that the city and state didn't meet their obligations.
You know what, I don't think we're going to get our earned pensions. I don't believe those retired department members [or Police widows for that matter] are going to be receiving their due amounts for much longer.

Fellow Coppers, the time has come to really show the City how much crime is out there.

WE MUST REPORT ALL CRIME NOW!!!

By reporting EVERYTHING, we can show the citizens that crime really is on the rise.

For instance, if you have a fight on the street, don't 19P it. Even if the victims don't want a report. Make them give the info. We do this with domestics even when the victim doesn't want a report. We 19P 90% of assaults and batteries. DON'T DO IT, THOSE ARE INDEX CRIMES!!

EVERY TIME YOU STOP YOUR CAR YOU SHOULD BE WRITING A REPORT. Just like the suburbs.

True crime numbers will be reported, and as a result the crime numbers will go through the roof. Then we can hit Rahm over the head with the stats!!!! Comprende???

Great station, so sorry to hear of it closing. I went to 013 first thing out of the Police Academy many years ago. Henry Horner and Rockwell Gardens were like patroling Kandahar. I learned quick not to go near the projects with the blue lights on so as not to attract gun fire.

The backup the police provided to each other in 013 was amazing and magnificant. In those days there were no computers and one radio per car. You had to remember or else write down the location of everyone else's assignments for when they screamed for help you knew where to go.

Other cars would always slide past your job, especially if it was a domestic or battery. The camaraderie was fantastic.

Those were the days.

A real easy way to trim the city budget and county budgets is this way. Model the 2012 budget after the 1970 budget. Old man Daley and George Dunne would never let this happen. If its not in the 1970 budget it most likely doesn’t belong in the 2012 budget. The 1970 population of Cook County is almost the same as 2012. But in constant dollars the 2011 county budget is way bigger than 1970.

For example, did the city have a Department of the Enviromen in 1970? Nope but we do now, any they show us how to plant grass and flowers on our roof tops? They test the water at fires to see what toxins are going down the sewer. By then what difference does it make? You could eliminate the whole department and no one would care.

If the 2012 city budget is the same as 2011 there are few if any people on the office of Mayor’s budget making less than $125,000. If old man Daley ran the city most people would be making a comparable salary as the private sector. By the time Daley II finished his career as Mayor, getting a city job, especially as management was like winning the lottery.

99% of the city employees should be making less than $125,000. Go to work at the city and become a millionaire in 15 years.

There is a big component to this issue that the city has no control over. Since the economy is down, revenue is down. But then if you didn’t hire so many 6 figure salaries since 1989, you’d have a situation like Indiana can be pround of, balanced budget no new taxes and a Governor who is so successful he won’t run for President.

Sorry to all the Supervisors, call takers, NMC personnel and radio techs who are affected by this bullshit move. These are some of the best people at the OEMC. Very unfair. Meanwhile the moronic clout babies and unqualified contractors are safe and sound. I hope someone can alert the media and the public about this mistake. Maybe a loud enough outcry can reverse some of this. Not only is this the same political garbage that has destroyed this city for years, this is worse. These people are jeopardizing the safety of our families by playing the same old political games. What will happen when the riots start at the G8 and NATO summits? The lack of qualified personnel at the OEMC will cause chaos in the response to the emergencies. Don't be surprised if the whole place goes down due to lack of qualified NMC and radio personnel. This is criminal negligence. I hope people go to jail over it.

Again sorry to those who will be let go. God bless you and your families.

SCC take this to the bank, I heard from a little mouse in HQ that the reason the PD and FD will be sharing 35th/Michigan is because the plan in to cross train P.O.'s to be firefighters.The fire houses will only have a lt., engineer, and ambulance crew working the 24 shift. Police officers will be trained to fight fires and be issued fireman gear. They will keep the gear in their trunks and when ever a fire arises the fire lt. will decide on how many p.o.'s he needs to fight the fire and the p.o.'s will be dispatched accordingly. Bye, bye firemen and those great 24 hr. shift. The city will save millions by only paying that lt., engineer, and ambulance crew. You heard it hear first and coming sometime in 2012!

A criminal is a criminal I really dont think that cameras will stop e agreatetcrimes being comitted. P.O's on the platform would have a greater effect. Yes15 million will not allow p.o's on ever platform/tube but it would help.

Thanks to the POs involved in the OWS demonstrations. So far protestors are not reporting any significant mistreatment, and the media has them being treated with kid gloves by arresting officers.

From my perch, the OWS protests are probably just getting started, and the worse protestors are treated (hello NYC!) the bigger and more robust these demonstrations are likely to get.

I have an idea that will potentially make the city millions. All of the stations that are closing can be hollowed out and retrofit with stadium style bleacher seating, a few concession stands (for beer and pretzels), an announcers booth and a dirt field where all baby mama drama, gang quarrel, and tranny slap &tickle fights can be reassigned. $5 a head for admission, $5 for a beer... the budget will be balanced in no time. All we'll have to do is advertise with onestadium of thethe real news outfits like the tribune or fox and we'll make billions.

*** Off Topic Pay Attention ***

Fellow Coppers, the time has come to really show the City how much crime is out there.

WE MUST REPORT ALL CRIME NOW!!!

By reporting EVERYTHING, we can show the citizens that crime really is on the rise.

For instance, if you have a fight on the street, don't 19P it. Even if the victims don't want a report. Make them give the info. We do this with domestics even when the victim doesn't want a report. We 19P 90% of assaults and batteries. DON'T DO IT, THOSE ARE INDEX CRIMES!!

EVERY TIME YOU STOP YOUR CAR YOU SHOULD BE WRITING A REPORT. Just like the suburbs.

True crime numbers will be reported, and as a result the crime numbers will go through the roof. Then we can hit Rahm over the head with the stats!!!! Comprende???

10/16/2011 11:10:00 AM

Take this to the bank because it is 100% true and I heard it from a tiny little mouse over at headquarters. Police officers will be cross trained in everything. Including duties such as- fire fighting, crossing guards, school teachers, counselors, streets and san, garbage collection, accounting, book keeping, cooking, cleaning, nursing, paramedic duties, helicopter pilots, fighter jet pilots, etc.... The government will save big money by cross training in the above jobs.

The midget is implementing barry's plan on a small scale here and all the demoncrats have been helping to fulfil the demise of this city.
As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward&Piven;, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a Socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... And can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.
-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.
With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system. Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by Barack Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan.

Is anyone paying attention to the fact that the 911 center is financially self-sustaining, thanks to the 911 surcharge of $2.50 on EVERY phone line with a 312, 773 or 224 area code? In the 2012 "Budget Overview," The mayor himself asserts that the 911 surcharge brings in over $94 MILLION a year. The cost to operate the OEMC amounts to roughly $61 million a year. He wants to knock it down to $51M. So, Mr Mayor, what have you been doing with the other 33 MILLION DOLLARS you stole this year from the Emergency Telephone System Fund? There is even an Emergency Telephone System Fund Board comprised of 5 Mayor-appointed officials (go figure) that no one seems to be aware of

I was there and these so called protesters are nothing but lazy slobs that aren't very bright. Most are all dressed like dead heads, stink and have not lived long enough to know about responsibility. Other than their stink in the air the smell of cannabis was also present. I doubt many of them would take a job if it paid 100,000 a year. For the most part they are just followers that want to be part of something and don't even know why. They hate the rich, but when asked, "do you know anyone that got a job from a poor man," they looked puzzled and then talk about the war. Dummies.

The Mayor and his lackey Mc Goof is out to screw us all. Changes in the dept need to be done by watch selection time. If they wait to Jan for changes and then move PO with a super bid the PO'S will be at the mercy of the district commander as to watch. Better get you KY ready

"Never, you have to have some physical strength and be in good physical condition to be a fireman. 90 percent of the people on my watch couldn't handle a ladder. You have to be able to do something to be a fireman.

Yeah, theres just as many overweight fat cinderheads as there are Police Officers. Be in good shape, HA! for the TV Remote? Every Athletic Contest they compete in against the CPD they lose. This is their cream of the crop.

"How are they going to train the police to do a firemens job. Oh let me guess a 4 minute streaming video with the sound muted while the watch commanders babbles some bullshit."

Laugh now. This is how CPD does almost all of its training.

While I don't believe we'll be cross-trained, why would this be any different?

Firemen, too!

Now we'll be a few more minutes away.
Good luck, citizens!

This will always be Chicago. Nothing will change in that regard.

Don't be jealous.

Could this be the reason that oemc is looking for volunteers to be 311 call takers in an event of a large scale Emergency? The first two classes are full and their is a waiting list of people who volunteer to be train as call takers, as classes become available.

cross train P.O.'s to be firefighters.

I could see this working. There are places where cops are cross trained as EMTs and firefighters. None of this stuff is rocket science.

Tact teams were called out Sat night for the demonstrations downtown that are getting bigger instead of smaller. Is this the prelude to G8? And what are we going to do with a decreased presence in the streets, longer commutes from scenes back to the stations and lock-ups; delayed processing in the lock-ups because "civilians" will be working at their pace, and a radio system that will get worse with a number of radio techs laid off? This city is fucked.

And you think that a 'civilian' pace of processing arrestees in a lockup is going to be any worse
than that pace from a 'sworn' lockup keeper?
You must not have made many arrests in your
time on the Job, office. Most of the time, it won't
matter if the lockup keeper is sworn or civilian,
just about all of them have that same 'I'm saving
some of this work for the next crew' attitude.

What about all those P.O's that are dispatchers at 911. Why hasn't the ballerino claimed them as part of his 1000 cops "on the beat?" I bet McNutty doesn't even know they exist because the people who whisper in his ear forgot to tell him.

For a minute there, I thought you were describing the Command staff @ the most recent Compstat Meeting

A little mouse at HQ said that snowplows were going to be installed on police cars so they can plow the street while on aggressive and preventive patrol.

That is why I have a Burglar/Security system and a S&W .40 cal.M&P. and...a smoke and CO alarm and fire extinguishers.

No law abidding home should be without them. (Seriously, please check those smoke detectors, I do every time I cook.)

We have more than twice as many people to chose our "athletes" from, Plus, our football team includes any cop from anywhere who wants to play for us, including our team captain. Their hockey team is as good as ours, so don't get too proud.

They have twice the amount of time off to practice & can workout on company time. Hell, they can't even put a Pipe Band on the street w/o civilians & the CPD Band filling their ranks. So the only point you made is the one on top of your head.
