Closings Confirmed

From the comment section:
  • The Lodge has been notified that the 019 & 021 District closings will be effective on Sunday, March 4, 2012.

    Officers working the 3rd watch on Saturday, March 3, 2012 will report to their current District of Assignment for roll call to pick up their car and radio. These Officers will check off in the 023rd District or 002nd District. Transport vans will be available to assist these Officers in picking up their personal vehicles.

    Officers working the 1st watch on Saturday night for March 4, 2012 will report to their current District of Assignment for roll call to pick up their car and radio. These Officers will check off in the 023rd District or 002nd District. Transport vans will be available to assist these Officers in picking up their personal vehicles.

    Officers working the 2nd watch on Sunday, March 4, 2012 will report to their new unit of assignment.

    Unit designators will be distributed to those members assigned to a new unit. Officers assigned to the new 019th Town Hall District will receive key cards for access to the building prior to the change.

    The 021st District Station will be locked at 0800 hours on Sunday, March 4, 2012. Any locker that is not vacated will have the lock cut off, the contents removed, and those contents inventoried. Officers should make every attempt to notify a member who is on furlough, extended medical, etc.

    The Department intends on making the Area changes effective Sunday, March 4, 2012, but has not released any details on the moves. The Department is working with other City services to repair the parking lot at Area 1. Signage will be in place on Wentworth Avenue to designate additional parking spaces. The heliport at Area 1 will be converted to additional parking spaces.

Hold on tight. We're sure this little shake-out cruise is going to be a bit bumpy for a while.

im not from 021 or 023 but picking up your radios for the last time in the building and walking out is pretty sad. End of an era. I worked in housing and we were in 021 alot... many many good times in that building in the 90s.. kind of a shame. Lots of history and good times. Proud to say that I was able to work in the duece and 021 when the real Prarie dogs worked there when all the buildings were up. 90-96 were some kick ass years up in those buildings... ahhh, the memories and stories... I would tell them the statute of limitations was up hahahahaha!!!

Contract violation, a little bird told me, officers in 21 got to bid out to 2,1 or 9 but officers in 23 did not get to bid they are all going to 019. Word is, the department does not want to call it a transfer so they are calling it a merge to get around contract rules. Those crafty devils are just too smart for themselves.

Printer in processing room is broken. 3 out of 5 computers are broken in processing room. Computer in front room by desk is broken (when you bring in tvb you can't run check or print from that computer). This department is a fucking joke. H.B.

I see you are running three trackers (Quantcast, Scorecard Research Beacon and Sitemeter). If one is a recent addition that may be the problem? I have them blocked but I regularly visit sites that have 8 or more trackers and don't have this problem. Something weird is going on with your site and you can't be too paranoid considering the times/place we live.

BRILLIANT PLANNING!!!
Undertake a major Departmental reorganization FIFTY-FIVE DAYS before May Day and Nato/G8.

Undertake a huge physical move of equipment, offices, supplies, lockers and files for several large detective and patrol units and districts FIFTY-FIVE DAYS before May Day and Nato/G8.

This is a major undertaking and it creates huge physical and organizational upheaval under the BEST of circumstances. Then add in the logistics of managing Occupy and Nato/G8 security.

Isn't there even ONE ounce of common sense operating at headquarters?

Harold, it's stuff like that that caused me to retire. I love the job as much as you do but I couldn't take the BS from this chickenshit department anymore. The working conditions for the street copper are ridiculous. And no one seems to care. Like you said, broken down computers,printers that don't work, ridiculous missions designed by house mouses that wouldn't know a bad guy if one bit them in the ass, the list of things wrong is endless. "Our department " has come and gone. It's not the same department it was twenty or even fifteen years ago. I suggest you get out now while you can. Guy's like you (and by that I mean outstanding coppers) are one beef away from taking some time off because of some inside puke trying to avoid working the street or losing a substansial amount of money because of the brain dead jury pool that is only seen in this democraptic cesspool of Shitcago or Crook County.
You have worked hard all these years. Time to enjoy.

The latest rumor is that the commander of 019 (Kenny) is going to 016 and raking his XO with him. XO Lenti from 016 is going to be an inspector (trying to get him to put in his papers I guess).
That makes CPD sense. McNaughton lives in 016 assigned to 008, Kenny lives in 008 will be assigned to 016. With gas at $4.00 a gallon why not?

The canary that was singing in your ear is incorrect. Firstly, you probably meant to say that the 019th District PO's didn't get to bid, not the 023rd District PO's. 019 is closing, not 023.

Second, 019th District Personnel are being "detailed" to 023 for 90 days, not assigned. This will take that personnel through the G8/NATO Summit, and possibly be used for that purpose.

You just summed it up...don't forget that the station is also Next to a School Zone on Fremont/Addison. The Unit Secretary tried parking in the school zone once on a school day. Got ticketed by Revenue. And for the 019 district refugees; Addison is Rush Hour 7am-9am/4pm-6pm and Permit from 6pm to 6am (383 permit). We go through the Police Lots checking for City Stickers and Expired Plates and No Front Plates as well.

You better go back and read the directions again. The original poster's question is a valid one. The officers on 3rd watch, March 3rd will report to their CURRENT district of assignment and then check off in 002 or 023. The officers on 1st watch, March 4th will report to their CURRENT district of assigment and then check off in 002 or 023. If the 3rd watch drops off all the radios and cars in the new district and gets shuttled back, what is 1st watch going to use in their current district? Unless the station supervisor and desk crew make sure that just enough cars and radios are left behind for the 1st watch and I seriously doubt that will happen. This is going to be a mess, plain and simple. Poor planning and even poorer execution... the trademark of the CPD.

The canary that was singing in your ear is incorrect. Firstly, you probably meant to say that the 019th District PO's didn't get to bid, not the 023rd District PO's. 019 is closing, not 023.

Second, 019th District Personnel are being "detailed" to 023 for 90 days, not assigned. This will take that personnel through the G8/NATO Summit, and possibly be used for that purpose

TO: 7:44 AM [The "Far South Side" PO that wants to "swap spots" with PO H.B., 016 aka "CopLand".]
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Some of us have tragic memories OTJ that we will take to the grave. One of mine occurred on Mothers' Day night, May 13, 1990 while I was a supervisor in 025. The Zone 12 dispatcher was unable to raise two of my guys on Beat 2523. Their last assignment was a "disturbance with the grandson" at the bungalow on the southwest corner of Nordica and Palmer. I drove over. Their squad was parked in the alley alongside an open garage door at the rear.

It was pitch black inside. I entered with weapon drawn, using my flashlight.
Both officers were down in the southeast corner. I immediately called a 10-1. Ray KILROY had no vital signs. Greg HAUSER went into a death rattle in my arms. Scores of units, two CFD ambulances, bosses and the chaplain responded to a huge Plan V. The shooter had fled and the hunt for a cop-killer was on.

Several hours later, two officers from Gang Crimes found and apprehended one Roman CHAVEZ, IR#790204, hiding beneath a porch several blocks away, the murder weapon nearby. The A/O was none other than H.B. and his partner, F.O.

Double cop-killer Chavez, IDOC#B14370, is currently serving life in Dixon. Burn in Hell, muthafucka!

The point of my post, "Far South Side(r)": The question for you is as a street copper, could you even make a patch on H.B.'s fine ass? He paid his dues a long, long time ago as an outstanding street cop. H.B. is "BLUE to the BONE". He could retire tomorrow but he now proudly "protects the Homeland".

Generally, I do have more respect for a P.O. that has paid his street dues in "fast" districts. I don't take kindly to "anonymous" posters who criticize "Chicago's Finest". H.B. more than qualifies as "a cop's cop". Hopefully, that night from Hell will remain the last time that the CPD will suffer multiple P.O. murders. Great pinch, H!

If the watches were fully-staffed, the task could be 98% accomplished with the on/off cycle of the third watch and a couple of house-mouses "volunteering" to change their watch for one tour of duty to handle the other 2% of the task. Instead, it will take two entire watches to get the cars and radios over to the other district station. Did they spill the beans and tell on themsleves?

Parking in 023 ? Just ask the guys who had their personal vehicles smashed in the NEW garage by other POs. One was brand new and was hit by a marked unit, the other was hit by a PO in her personal vehicle. Both were HIT and RUN resulting in a good amount of damage. One offender is female 2nd watch PO,and the other offender is the after hours girlfriend of a tac sgt. That was parking when it had plenty of room, its only going to get worse, much worse!!

Contract violation, a little bird told me, officers in 21 got to bid out to 2,1 or 9 but officers in 19 did not get to bid they are all going to 023. Word is, the department does not want to call it a transfer so they are calling it a merge to get around contract rules. Those crafty devils are just too smart for themselves.

The contract violation is only allowing one district to bid on openings in 4 districts. Maybe some guy in 19 would rather go to 1, I guess that doesn't matter to an old salty dog like you.

We believe that YOU are out of touch, 04:41: PM, for you see, the configuration of the NEW 023rd District was meant to accommodate between 200 to 250 PO's, their personal vehicles and squad cars, over three watches. It was NOT designed to house 400 coppers, their cars and squads, you FUCKING DUMBASS.

You better go back and read the directions again. The original poster's question is a valid one. The officers on 3rd watch, March 3rd will report to their CURRENT district of assignment and then check off in 002 or 023. The officers on 1st watch, March 4th will report to their CURRENT district of assigment and then check off in 002 or 023. If the 3rd watch drops off all the radios and cars in the new district and gets shuttled back, what is 1st watch going to use in their current district? Unless the station supervisor and desk crew make sure that just enough cars and radios are left behind for the 1st watch and I seriously doubt that will happen. This is going to be a mess, plain and simple. Poor planning and even poorer execution... the trademark of the CPD.

I actually have 3 lockers in 021. When I was in my delta city wide attack force unit (before I joined tact and became an american badass), I used to wait for all the old dog asses to retire and move in on the lockers.

No need to worry about me though. I have strategically obtained lockers in every district....suckers. If any of you lazy inside dogasses cut my lock you will know its my locker when you find: 31 bottles of hairgel, ninja stars, anal lube, 10 pairs of blue jeans and a Backstreet Boys cd.

Do not throw out any of my possessions. I bought those with my allowance that my mom(who I still reside with) gave me.

In the meantime I'm gonna hang out with my wang out at TGI fridays and drink shots of apple puckers!

023, Parking will be a fiasco! The HIT and RUNS that happened are true. Ask anyone when you get there. Very sad to know another co-worker would do that to your personal property. If you are heading to afternoons, the female PO that takes her personal/lunch around 1800-1830 everyday in the station, around the same time a certain tac sgt starts, will be the offender. They would be the ones playing cat and mouse on the second floor, till they run into each other,by accident of course. Sometimes you go to the show, sometimes the show comes to you !!!!! Enjoy.

Since apparently the entire 1st watch of 019 isn't smart enough to figure it out, they will probably stand there behind the station staring off into space forever.

Or, they can catch the bus that will be provided to do shuttle duty for a day or two. That is in there too. Otherwise you are fucked, just plain fucked, you will never ever get to your new station. Send help, shoot up flares, send food and water. Damn, a night without hitting the hole.

The parking lots will remain open after the stations are closed as overflow parking for the stations these officers have been reassigned to. The walk from the overflow facility will be good for you. The city is doing this because the city cares about you.

I am the numero uno most squared away "operator" since graduating the academy which is well over 6 1/2 months now. When I get to my first SWAT mission I am going to shoot to kill because my weapon is cleaner than the Pope's conscience. I once wrote 100 parkers in one tour of duty back when I was fighting the savage in the old 16 up on the north end. I can recite the Miranda warnings in both pig-latin and sign language should the need arise. How dare you discount the excellence of the airport SWAT training regimine.

Contract violation, a little bird told me, officers in 21 got to bid out to 2,1 or 9 but officers in 19 did not get to bid they are all going to 023. Word is, the department does not want to call it a transfer so they are calling it a merge to get around contract rules. Those crafty devils are just too smart for themselves.

The contract violation is only allowing one district to bid on openings in 4 districts. Maybe some guy in 19 would rather go to 1, I guess that doesn't matter to an old salty dog like you.

You have to look at it objectively, the only reason people from 021 got to bid into 009and 001 is because those two districts took over parts of 021. Thats all. They are merely compensating for the ground that it will cover.

You can resign your detective status at any time. Believe me, there are plenty of guys and gals who would love to take your place.

If you don't know H.B. you don't know shit. He spent too much time fighting the savage on the south and west side and told everyone he was going to 016 to "retire". The only problem was he has too much pride in himself and the work he did, and does, for some kid to say "I worked with H.B. in 016 and he was a dog." H.B. just wants some working equipment to do his job. Thanks for all you do to keep your neighborhood safe H. I try my best in 008 Godspeed brother.

I type more words on reports in one week than you will in ten years on this job. Then return the next day and still have 30 to 40 cases pending with new ones being assigned daily. All that glory for 75$ dollars more a week after taxes.

So, you are not a detective, but a typist?? That would mean a cut in pay and benefits .

im not from 021 or 023 but picking up your radios for the last time in the building and walking out is pretty sad. End of an era. I worked in housing and we were in 021 alot... many many good times in that building in the 90s.. kind of a shame. Lots of history and good times. Proud to say that I was able to work in the duece and 021 when the real Prarie dogs worked there when all the buildings were up. 90-96 were some kick ass years up in those buildings... ahhh, the memories and stories... I would tell them the statute of limitations was up hahahahaha!!!

A wee bit bumpy yes but what transition doesn't have a few bumps in the road.

Take a deep breath and remain positive. It will help guide you through the chaos and focus better.
Everything will work its way out eventually.

Good Luck & Be safe!

LMAO at Beavers--blew the lid off the fact that the Feds wanted John Daley!!!!!! Did they get him anyway? Sure hope so. Beavers has them boss hog balls--told the Feds to go fuck themselves. There is something a bit--and I say, a bit--admirable about that! Still a piece of shit, but how many people have the balls to tell the Feds to take a hike!!!!

D-unit totally fucked up. I don't know what they're planning, but cases are going to be tracked from one end to the other. Just like 007, 011, OCD and Fugitives are numbers units now, so will be the D-Unit. Compstat is coming to the D-unit, and it's coming soon. 8 weeks. Gear up for bosses being a whole lot crankier. Unbelievable.

I say good!! It is about time the detectives are held accountable for doing some work. Many do litle or nothing and have no or incompetent supervision.
