Read the Fine Print

From the comments:
  • The department sent out another notice concerning MFF, this time they eliminated some of the wording. They took out, you will be assigned to your district and called out as necessary and replaced it with you may be called out if your on duty.

    Typical department thinking everyone below them is a moron.
They're just making this less and less desirable.

After reading the seven page order you have to be a complete assh01e to join this unit. You forfeit all of your union rights for a "at call" unit. I truly feel that the city putting an order out like this is an insult to the officer of this department. It would be great if no one applied to this joke of a unit. Remember one thing this unit has nothing to offer as benefit.

Now Alderfool Bob Fioretti (2nd) wants to license dog owners as well as their dogs. Does this mean we all have to get rabies shots like our pups? Will we have to wear our city dog license and Crook County rabies tag around our neck for inspection by the city dog license police? Where the fuck do these politicians come up with these ideas? Too much free time on their hands. They should be out shoveling the snow in front of old timers homes in their wards so they won't get a $100 ticket from the Racoon.

Does the higher ups notice that no one is signing up because the f@@ked so many officers by disbanding the old units and now they are trying to save their ass because they noticed they dont have enough officer to protect downtown. This department is a joke and I would hope no one signs up for this so the city know we don't trust them.

Well let's see...if we intentional make these summits a crisis because the CPD is overwhelmed and under prepared/understaffed. We can then not let that crisis go to waste by making Governor Quinn call out the National Guard. With the city it tatters we can them place blame on the NG and Governor Quinn for any and all screw-ups which then can be use for Governor Bill Daley's election.

Rumor going around that they cannot fill these spots and that they are going to use reverse seniority starting with people that have three years on the job.

Remember:
Reverse seniority is anyone off probation at the bottom of the entire list of PO's.
The dept. cannot arbitrarily pick a date to start that reverse seniority at.

So if this happens to you - CALL THE FOP.

If you get picked by reverse seniority, don't buy anything with your own money. You didn't sign up for this train wreck unit, so don't think that you have to.

All others that join because they think they are the real police are soft.

Our gray haired WC told us anyone who volunteered was a fool. Working midnights we would be drafted anyway.

The difference is we could be standing in line next to an Academy classmate who didn't volunteer and he would have $800 more in his pockets because the city would have to buy him his turtle gear.

No, the department cannot force anyone to give up their contractual rights via reverse seniority. Neither can they force you to buy turtle gear.
They can change your assignment, but they still have to follow the contract.

White sux but who BETTER to be an Inspector than someone who hates her fellow officers sooo much that she'd gather evidence against them so she can get them sent to prison?

She's the perfect CPD stooge, and let's face it, left to her own talent and ability, she'd never have gotten even ONE of her merit promotions. She sold her soul to the devil known as the CPD and will serve her master well... the frickin BEYOTCH!

Don't worry folks, if it's reverse seniority (which is just a rumor) they would then have to purchase first issue equipment and cannot make you give up or change furlo or DOG. So that really won't benefit them, they will just volunteer all tact and gang teams into it and say they filled this elite unit with elite officers. What crap!

Disclaimer: gossip and hearsay only.
The infamous C.W., now an inspector, was the bag man for
Commander Shorty Johnson in the 2nd district in the late mid 80's. They got caught and bought their way out of it by flipping lower level sacrificial lamb Po's and a Sgt.as their bargaining chips. One Po they disliked was brought back onto a team just so he could take the fall too. An apartment was set up that had cameras and was wired for sound. She is truly a P.O.S. That last sentence is a fact.

These special elite units may be glamourous to all you young officers, but.... all you are volunteering for is liability and lawsuits from the upcoming demonstrations in May. There are still lawsuits going from the demonstrations from 2003 and before.
Bosses are being dropped from these suits and the lowly patrol officers are still going to federal court.
Ask any retired former Task Force and SOS guys from the '70's and '80's who were instrumental in taking down the El Rukns and other notorious gangs.
Today, they are all retired, some suffer debilitating sickness, some are dead, some are in good health, but they are still being called into federal court on new lawsuits that generate from activity over 25 yrs ago. Is this what you want. These Task Force guys and SOS guys (pre - Finnegan) had the backing of the city (Jane Byrne and the CPD bosses) still they are being dragged into federal court on "fishing expeditions" trying to build cases from 25 yrs ago.

My advice is take a pass on these elite details, no one has your back anymore.

I just retired within the past year, I worked these fancy prestigious units, I spent 3 days before Christmas with the Corp Counsel preparing for a
deposition for something alleging to happen 18 yrs ago. I spent 7 hours giving the deposition last week.
I have a federal trial starting in the spring for something that happened in 1992, they are looking at punitive damages.

My retired friends and I who were in these fancy units all have lawsuits and federal cases pending.
My retired friends who spent their time working a beat car in a district are all enjoying retirement with no lawsuits pending.

My advice is stay put, don't volunteer for these units. Ride out the storm. If you get in Rahm's way as he tries for the White House and your actions embarrass him on a youtube video, he will squash you like a bug!!!!!

Please be careful and look out for each other.

Remember if they take you by reverse seniority it is no longer voluntary. This means you dont have to spend the $800.00 on equipment. They have to issue it to you. I dont post on here very often but we need to stick together on this my friends. Be safe!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Reverse senior may fly, to a point. But I'm pretty sure that if you did not volunteer and were forced to do this nonsense, they CANNOT force you to spend the required $800+.
I'm not 100% sure, but I don't see how they can force you. "I'm sorry, but with tuition costs because I will not send my kids to a thug-ridden public school, and being taxed to the
hilt, I cannot afford the $800".
Maybe someone better versed in our contract protections can chime in.
Be safe, everyone!

This is nothing more than a case of robbing peter to pay paul.

Not that with all the focus on downtown is would be enough of a reason to start robbing, burnin, and looting every business in the neighborhoods. Chaos is just months away..........

Not to change the subject BUT

Did you know that the FOP agreed to allow the city to change the watch assignments of all personnel, Detectives & PO's who have their units disbandsed. Chief Tom Byrne told the Unit & Watch Reps of the Detective Division (Area 4 & 5) that the watch assignments picked before transferring to another area will be honored at their new assignment. R.A. of the FOP signed off to allow the city change the watch assignments in order to balance the assignments of the watches.

In his closing argument, Sgt. Robert Stephenson`s attorney, Patrick Driscoll, crystallized the mass of evidence presented at the trial by saying, ``This case revolves around the credibility of Cynthia White.``

Then Driscoll asked the jury to disregard her six weeks of testimony. ``I think you`ll find that she is incredible,`` he said. ``She admitted she lied on the tapes. She did whatever she had to do to get ahead.``

hey CW remember this?? and now you're an inspector? LMAO!!!

1. How many "spots" are there?

2. If they select you by reverse seniority, they can't make you buy the $800.00 in equipment.

That means there won't be as many of you...Vaya con Dios.

the new allegations against the old Task Force and SOS guys have nothing to do with stealing money, but re-opening old cases where defendants / gangs bangers have been found guilty and sentenced to 20+ years - high price law firms know the sympathy is with these wrongfully accused and convicted felons and the police are wrong. Thanks ex- Gov. Ryan.
Old cases are being re-opened knowing that witnesses are long gone, DNA is an issue, and everyone high ranking gang member sentenced was wrongfully convicted in the eyes of the public. A lot has to do with the Burge allegations....
It has nothing to do with corrupt cops.

It's typically a fishing expedition trying to make a quick buck off the city, but in the meantime, long time retirees are being for bullshit.

When I met with the Corp Counsel regarding my deposition, the first thing he wanted to know was if I ever worked with / for and had social relationship with Jon Burge.
