Who Knew What and When?

Bunch of interesting comments about the 002 scandal that broke this week:
  • "The karma bus rolled into the 002nd District and so now ex Commander GL and retired Lt KM do you believe me now?...PO KM and Sgt RW are under arrest for the very thing I told you they asked me to do with them 4 yrs ago...but my punishment for telling was removal from tact and sent to a beat car...well for that Commammander GL I THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART...BTW..I've never been AFRAID to do my job...I've never had the desire to go to prison..."

  • "Watts and his team from Housing which included Mohammed were dirty over 10 years ago. I'm surprised it took this long for them to get taken down. And I'm really surprised that more of his team didn't get caught up in this indictment....."

  • "Was no secret in housing that watts team was dirty. F-them"
It certainly seems that a number of people attempted to bring this to light but were shut down by various levels of the Department. We all know corrupt cops make everyone look bad, but when there's no one willing to believe (or acknowledge) the whistle-blowers and there seems to be active collusion among the white shirts and gold stars to silence or cover for the misbehavior, then where does that leave the honest guys and gals?

We all know what happened after the last Second District scandal.

UPDATE: Channel 5 says it's going to get bigger.

Ahhh Yes, another fresh scandal, and what a coincidence, just in time to make us look bad for the contract negotiations. Gee thanks Officers for making the rest of us look bad, for making the citizens routinely think we plant, lie, and steal from people. For giving The Duke of 9.5 fingers another crisis not to let go to waste, and finally, for making my job that much harder. You sold your soul to the devil for money. Now as you do your federal time and look back at your lost honor, dignity, respect, and your new found disgrace remember: The Devil bought your souls cheaply, and what a bargain he got as the good and honest ones pay the price.

I see that Channel 5 has referenced this 'insignificant' blog of yours, SCC. Using exact quotes of posts found here as well is very telling.

Just confirms that the media WHORES as well as the clueless ASSHOLES at Fort Fellatio visit regularly for their occasional doses of reality. All of which makes it likely that the Feds are also currently visiting looking for information to bolster their case against the jagoffs in 002.

Happy hunting, boys!

I'm not defending the delay in this coming to light, but what people might not realize is how much goes into catching someone dirty.

The old 015th district case had three incarnations, before it blossomed. Every time IAD pursued it, either the word got out, or the targets didn't act on the bait. It took several years to get the case up and running, then to actually work up the case.

Just because a complaint is filed, doesn't mean you'll see the results in a few weeks or months. And, when you bring the Feds in on a case, you could be talking years, because they want everything as neatly boxed up as they can get it. If the Feds go ahead with a prosecution, you can be sure they have more than one dead-bang case on somebody. They don't gamble the odds; they know they've got you when they move ahead.

was at an area when an exempt was discussing g8 with another boss...
interesting conversation, the gold star was talking the shift changes with 1st and 2nd working 12 hours shifts to cover for the 3rd watch guys going downtown.

the part that caught my ear was when he said downtown is going to watch how the 12 hour shifts work out...that they did a manpower study and 12 hour shifts work best with a lower amount of manpower

12 hours shifts citywide, early/late starts with rapids covering overlap

The internal affairs functions in the Chicago Police Department should be staffed by retired cops from other departments and led by a retired outside cop with no strong ties to the department. Otherwise the temptation to ignore things or flat out cover up things is too great. The people in that unit should not be worrying about their next assignment in the department.

Also if there is an allegation of corruption the supervisors of the alleged corrupt cop should generally NOT be informed of any investigation. It should be done internally within the IA unit with perhaps some federal assistance.

How hard would it be to take these type of corrupt idiots down? Since we're now a branch of the NYPD perhaps we could get some undercover "skels" to wire up and carry marked money. Think of them as walking integrity tests.

In the late 90's there was a group of cops on the NW side shaking down and stealing cash from illegal Polish immigrants. Then Superintendent Hilliard brought in the FBI and Polish speaking Feds and set up a sting. Those corrupt cops all went on to be guests of the Federal government with one exception. One indicted cop killed himself.

Isn't it amazing how the mainstream media has begun citing "the Second City Cop blog, which is frequented by officers from the Chicago Police Department", in order to give their stories an air of legitimacy?

I guess they don't realize how inept this makes them look, when they can no longer report a story without using other, additional, legitimate sources to quote to make their story sound plausible.

Not bad for an "Insignificant Blog". Funny, too, how the author of that infamous title is NOW the one who has become insignificant...

That's what happens when you give hire gang banging thugs on your police force. This department does a pathetic job of background investigations when they hire someone. They had a janitor in 023 (when the old station was being used) who had a criminal record AND an active warrant- the same guy who has access to all our discarded records, paper and locker rooms. I'd like to know if anybody even took time for that oversight. No repercussions for the ones responsible for hiring these fools. But god forbid you miss a traffic court date- that's a day w/o pay. This dept is ass-backwards and fkd up!!!!!!!!!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Is there a shred of hope that, when notified, Commander GL and Lt. KM moved you to protect you? And they then dropped confidential paper and made a verbal notification to the then ADS of IAD and/or the then Superintendent, which is how the ball got rolling?

OTOH, if they chose to move you and then told Sgt. RW and PO KM of your allegations, or move you and just ignore the allegations, they will soon wish they had not acted so foolishly. If either proves to be true, they should take a big, big hit, also. It is the right thing to do.

Bosses never want to deal with issues of diry cops under their command. Add race as a factor and then you can multiply that by 10. But it is time for the bosses to be held responsible. Make them make a statement as to what this PO is saying. Were they told about this and did they do nothing. Nothing will change unless we change it. No more dirty cops. Increase the standards for become a police officer. This city has lowered the standards and dumbed down the test that even a 5th grader (from the suburbs) could easily pass the test. When you lower the standards for political reasons, ie buying votes, this is what you get. Raise the standards to where they should be, I am tired of working with gang bangers. I look over in the locker room and I see a gang tattoo and I wonder how the hell they got on the job and then I remember I'm in Chicago. Again this is why so many of our command staff cannot get FBI clearance. Why hasn't the media asked about this? They have always been afraid to ask the tough questions. Pam Z would rather have a explosive story about cops parking at wrigley field for games, wow what a story! Get one journalist with some balls to break open all the huge bombs that are available with a little leg work. Hell this web site gives countless ideas they can pursue. But again they are all afraid because race may become an issue. Cowards.

I would expect Mike Krauser from WBBM radio to be right up everyone's behind on this -- if he can boil a lengthy, complicated case down into a thirty-second sound bite, that is.

He is currently running "dramatic" 911 tapes of a hassle in some Wal-mart or someplace up in Wisconsin. "Plainclothes policeman told pregnant woman she was blocking the line, woman's husband "pushes" officer, officer draws gun/shows star," all these phone calls played, every version different, nothing explained or proven.

"Sound and fury signifying nothing."

A. General point -- when did 911 tapes become public entertainment? I don't get it. It is disgusting to use recordings of people who are often in extremis -- injured people in accidents, terrified children screaming about a fire, Mommy's dead, and so forth -- as mere attention-grabbers, ratings-boosters. Real garbage "journalism."

B. It's like this Krauser is at the top of the Emanuel Rolodex. Seems like every flash story about City Hall doing something new and rotten has his monicker on it.

He was the one recently going on about "police descriptions so vague as to be useless" regarding a suspect in a string of crimes, who I believe was later captured, Ipod-grabber or something.

Pretty funny, coming from the same media crowd that makes a point of not broadcasting or printing the race of a wanted suspect.

A real climber here. I don't think he likes the police.

Im a patent lawyer, but hearing that an officer or several officers told the powers that be that these guys were dirty then they were punished is a huge problem. Ok, now here comes the typical lawyer response from me... You have grounds to sue the city. Its called the whistle blower law. If you were a whistle blower and were punished you have a GREAT chance to get some money. Hey, I read the papers and the blog and my father was a police officer and my brother currently works in area 2 and I know that every other mope on the street sues you guys... why shouldn't you? Especially since you were trying to be a good police officer and were attempting to better your department. I know cops don't like suing cops, but I think this is different. If I were you I would talk to an attorney and see what kind of case you have. Im sure it would be nice to have a little extra cash to use for the kids or retirement. Good luck if someone decides to go after the city, we will be rooting for you!

The truth is you need evidence. Which was, thankfully, finally obtained. Honest officers would get fucked over by citizens, bad supervisors, & IPRA, if just allegations or beefs got an officer fired, suspended, or moved across town. That's where it leaves us (honest cops), mere accusations should mean nothing. The FBI has evidence these two committed a crime. However, you'd think if an officer went to a Commander, or called IAD, even showed up at the FBI branch on Harrison St, a probe would start, or in this case maybe it did.

But to get a money beef without evidence, goes no where and should, unless there is evidence that on video with marked bills followed by a log of when issued to who and why and then recovered and inventoried.

These guys just made being an honest police officer even tougher. Thank you fucking assholes, I hope you two fucks get 20 years fed time.

What an idiot headline on the CBS Chicago/WBBM web site -- "911 Tapes Show Confusion After Cop Pulls Gun In Wal-Mart."

Cop just jerked his gun out for no reason at all, huh?

...and in a Wal-Mart, yet, which is a sacred place where nothing is ever supposed to happen.

...someplace up in Wisconsin, yet. Is it a slow news day around here or something? We hadn't noticed.

Uh -- how many times a day does a police officer unholster his/her weapon in the United States?

...and, each time, WHY?

In this case I hear one claim that the officer was physically assaulted -- but "confusion" is the story here.

You know, Krauser, you are an asshat.

That appellation will undoubtedly give you loads of "street cred" -- with the sort of people no one decent wants around, it's true...

I just want to thank the midnight crew of the 025 district. my relative gets her car stolen at a gas station and calls 911. however, since she cant get her info (i.e. plate number ) immediately, she gets the brush off. the responding unit goes as far as dropping off at her house and leaving her there without any police service. they tell her to make a report at the district. once in the district, they get another brush off. In the end, my relative now has to get her car out the lot from sacramento and pay 2000.00 because the person who stole they car was arrest for a dui.
seems to me the officers didn't know what they were doing from the start? once again, thanks for taking care of the residents of beat 2512....

First of all I'd like to state for the record that I am a proud member of the Chicago Police Department and has been for over 20 years...unfortunately this latest incident involving the unveiling of police misconduct and corrupt behavior not only negatively affects the involved officers but the entire department. My concern today is the hypocrites that are my fellow police officers...the city of Chicago and the Chicago Police Department have spent millions of dollars on the ad campaign "IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING" apparently that's not the slogan of CPD...if you expect Pookie to tell on RayRay if he knows who did what .... Then why the hell are CPD officers,supervisors and brass expected to "SEE SOMETHING SAY NOTHING" I'm appalled that so called whistle blowers are ridiculed, talked about so negatively, warned by other officers to shut up, then ostrasized by MOST officers for doing what others don't have the guts to say or the moral fiber to believe that it's your responsibilty to "SEE SOMETHING AND SAY SOMETHING." Since this story broke I've read the posts stating they knew what was going on and said nothing...SHAME ON YOU...I've read posts that stated I knew and tried to tell or did tell...WELL GOOD FOR YOU...an open memo to the current members of the CPD who commit crimes...PICK A TEAM! If you want to be a criminal ; turn in your star, ID and shield and be true to who you are. If you want to continue to represent the CPD then don't become a part of the problem of corruption ....

Now as you do your federal time and look back at your lost honor, dignity, respect, and your new found disgrace remember: The Devil bought your souls cheaply, and what a bargain he got as the good and honest ones pay the price.

I would expect Mike Krauser from WBBM radio to be right up everyone's behind on this -- if he can boil a lengthy, complicated case down into a thirty-second sound bite, that is.

He is currently running "dramatic" 911 tapes of a hassle in some Wal-mart or someplace up in Wisconsin. "Plainclothes policeman told pregnant woman she was blocking the line, woman's husband "pushes" officer, officer draws gun/shows star," all these phone calls played, every version different, nothing explained or proven.

"Sound and fury signifying nothing."

A. General point -- when did 911 tapes become public entertainment? I don't get it. It is disgusting to use recordings of people who are often in extremis -- injured people in accidents, terrified children screaming about a fire, Mommy's dead, and so forth -- as mere attention-grabbers, ratings-boosters. Real garbage "journalism."

B. It's like this Krauser is at the top of the Emanuel Rolodex. Seems like every flash story about City Hall doing something new and rotten has his monicker on it.

He was the one recently going on about "police descriptions so vague as to be useless" regarding a suspect in a string of crimes, who I believe was later captured, Ipod-grabber or something.

Pretty funny, coming from the same media crowd that makes a point of not broadcasting or printing the race of a wanted suspect.

FYI, the rest of the story is, the off-duty County guy was in line, he and the pregnant woman got into a conversation about too many items in the checkout, her husband shoved him (not knowing he was sworn leo), County guy then pulled his gun and the husband was arrested for battery. On film.

hey moron, wwe cant do shit without a vin or plate, and let me guess she got brushed off in the station because after being graciously given a ride home by US, she went back to the station without the same info she lacked in the first place.

Ok slick, screw you. Tell the truth you jerk. Your relative left the keys in the car and walked away. Wanna make it any easier for the goof to steal it? When the police arrive our great computer system is down and info can't be entered. By the time the system comes up the tow is ordered several districts away. Before anyone can figure out the connection the car is hooked. Your relative was given a step by step procedure as to how to get the car back with no fees. She was given copies of everything that she needs. If she couldn't figure out how to do it or is just too stupid to do it maybe you should have gone with and held her hand. But next time tell dumbshit to take the f-in keys out of the ignition then you won't have to troll on this blog. Good night.

I have never been on the medical, but I believe taking the 365 days of medical away is a bad idea. God willing you get diagnosed with some type of cancer and you are the only One in your immediate family who brings in the cash. I think a better idea would look into those who do abuse the medical . Make a few changes, serious health problems, heart conditions and cancers, make exceptions for serious illness and legate ones that a doctors note can confirm. Questionable injuries should be investigated. So those who are making comments about good for the medical abusers don't realize this affects all of us. Considering our work, we are more likely to have a heart attack or stroke.The work we do we should be allowed to have those 365 meidcal days. This is important for all of us. Those who have not been on the medical should be given some type of incentive, maybe it would make some reconsider hitting the medical.

I heard it was 7 years and the clock starts running when you leave the job.

I hope they're not actually thinking about 12 hour days. I

I worked in the restaurant business before this and I worked some 14 hour days there and the next day you were off. 4 days per week vanished. The 2-14 hour days and your days off just melted together. You'd get your day off after the long day.

Can you imagine, the last 2 hours of your shift you'll have to put the blinders or you'll be working some overtime. If you catch something complicated near the end of your shift, you'll be working a 20 hour day.

The only upside of a 12 hour workday would be that you'd be off half the time. At least at checkoff time there wouldn't be a stampede to get checked off, you'd be too damn tired to run.

I'm not defending the delay in this coming to light, but what people might not realize is how much goes into catching someone dirty.

The old 015th district case had three incarnations, before it blossomed. Every time IAD pursued it, either the word got out, or the targets didn't act on the bait. It took several years to get the case up and running, then to actually work up the case.

Just because a complaint is filed, doesn't mean you'll see the results in a few weeks or months. And, when you bring the Feds in on a case, you could be talking years, because they want everything as neatly boxed up as they can get it. If the Feds go ahead with a prosecution, you can be sure they have more than one dead-bang case on somebody. They don't gamble the odds; they know they've got you when they move ahead.

The attitude among a lot of officers in 025 1st watch is "real police don't do paper". They don't like writing reports. Most of the officers in 025 1st watch want to make felony arrests, get guns, get dope off the street and make good arrests. Yeah, they are the real police. It's a fucking shame that the responding officers didn't do the paper. But also you have to tell your relative memorize your license plate info. or at least save it somewhere you can quickly access it.

I beleive that the 365 days for every 24 consecutive months is a contractual thing.

It's very simple. REMOVE YOURSELF FROM THE SITUATION. If you think an interanl or external investigation should be done then initiate it with a call. We're all big boys and girls here.

the offiucers who responded to that were beat 2511r, not 2512.
next, your relative did not know the year or plate of her car.
next, when the car was finally reported stolen, leads (911) did not list the car stolen until after the car was pulled over for a 501 in 019.
next, the officers who processed the 501 involving your relatives stolen car did not cancell the tow on the car, even though they were told it was a stolen car.
beat 2511r worked the majority of the night to help your family member.....including all of the bullshit required for her to get her car out of the pound without paying for it.
next time, tell your family member who was selling flowers at eh gas station without a permit not to leave her keys in her car whle the car was running!

12 hr shifts, yeah right. if im in court 4 to 5 days a week and i have to then go to work and work a 12 hr shift plus add travel time to and from court and to and from work, when the fuck am i supposed to have a life let alone get any sleep? maybe an officer working inside with no court might like this and it would work out for him but there is no way for the cop working the street.

2/15/2012 03:46:00 PM

I work the street and make arrests (i.e. go to court). I would LOVE 12 hour days. Maybe you are police officer of the year but how often do you go to court every day of the week? Do you know how many more days off you would have for family, friends, relaxation, ect? You sound like the guys who fought the 4-2. Change is not always bad. And yes I do not know any of the details about the schedule (start times) but it sounds like a very good change to me.

District commanders always know what is going on in their districts. These bosses have their own snitches on all watches to keep him/her posted.

Or is this the classic, my car was used in a crime, lets make up a false report (which is a felony). To report a stolen car you need the VIN and a plate #, and a title would be nice, and a driver's license or ID. Oh, none of that, just a color of a car, not even a make or how many doors, or who took it? So we have a blue car driving around that's stolen.

First of all I'd like to state for the record that I am a proud member of the Chicago Police Department and has been for over 20 years...unfortunately this latest incident involving the unveiling of police misconduct and corrupt behavior not only negatively affects the involved officers but the entire department. My concern today is the hypocrites that are my fellow police officers...the city of Chicago and the Chicago Police Department have spent millions of dollars on the ad campaign "IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING" apparently that's not the slogan of CPD...if you expect Pookie to tell on RayRay if he knows who did what .... Then why the hell are CPD officers,supervisors and brass expected to "SEE SOMETHING SAY NOTHING" I'm appalled that so called whistle blowers are ridiculed, talked about so negatively, warned by other officers to shut up, then ostrasized by MOST officers for doing what others don't have the guts to say or the moral fiber to believe that it's your responsibilty to "SEE SOMETHING AND SAY SOMETHING." Since this story broke I've read the posts stating they knew what was going on and said nothing...SHAME ON YOU...I've read posts that stated I knew and tried to tell or did tell...WELL GOOD FOR YOU...an open memo to the current members of the CPD who commit crimes...PICK A TEAM! If you want to be a criminal ; turn in your star, ID and shield and be true to who you are. If you want to continue to represent the CPD then don't become a part of the problem of corruption ....

Ok, now here comes the typical lawyer response from me... You have grounds to sue the city. Its called the whistle blower law. If you were a whistle blower and were punished you have a GREAT chance to get some money. Hey, I read the papers and the blog and my father was a police officer and my brother currently works in area 2 and I know that every other mope on the street sues you guys... why shouldn't you? Especially since you were trying to be a good police officer and were attempting to better your department. I know cops don't like suing cops, but I think this is different. If I were you I would talk to an attorney and see what kind of case you have. Im sure it would be nice to have a little extra cash to use for the kids or retirement.

03:57 Can't just change the number of medical days. Its a contractual issue and has to be agreed upon by both the FOP and the city or it goes to an arbitrator. There is also something known as "past practices"
365 days in a careeer is not alot and I have no idea and either do you whereyou get most officers only use 50 days in a career, pure BS.
Problem with our job and the medical section is that if you break a leg, arm .finger, etc you have to be off on medical. In private industry you can go to work in a case. Also CPD and medical section will not let you work if you have stitches, so a simple cut requiring stitches could keep you off work for 7 to 10 days or even two weeks, Another problem is medical counts all you days off, not just your working days. That would have to be changed

The wc started dropping paper lake crazy on this guy, and he just hit the medical on a phony IOD. That was back in May and he is still on the med. This crook has been stealing one way or another for years and the inept Dept. can't seem to get its act together and get rid of this jag before he is a front page headline.

To the one idiot on here who is giddy about the medical policy ever changing, you don't belong on this job. You may need those 365 days in the future num nuts. Ever hear of cancer, heart problems, back problems. You seem too stupid to understand it.

For the officer looking to buy a car. If you have a Costco membership they have certain dealerships who give members a discount. Call Costco and they will let you know what dealerships participate in their program. You will get a great discount, they show you on paper what exactly you will pay depending on the model. So look into it . I had a friend who saved $3000 and you don't have to deal with those pain in the ass salesman who try to scam you working a deal. Good luck

To the citizen who thinks the police brushed your family member off. If you have no information about your stolen vehicle to give to the police, what is it you think we can do? Sorry, we don't carry crystal balls. Maybe you should memorize your license plate number. No plate number, no vin, no report.

2/15/2012 10:24:00 PM

Yeah, because it would be too hard to soundex the victim's name and figure out the license plate number and vin that way. Hopefully, none of your relatives will be in a tight spot and get the brush off from CPD.

To get vehicle information if the victim does not have it sometimes you can find it with SOUNDEX. All you need is a name. A lot of officers don't have a clue as how to get that or use any of the free format LEADS transactions which offer a wealth of vehicle information. The systems are old and not modern like "clear" information but they still have a value. Try HD89 and HD81.

Introduce the CPD to the NYPD's old nine-squad chart. May we start referring to CFD ambulances as "buses"? I prefer monosyllables.

Also, the MSM is getting on my nerves with their politically correct "African-American" drivel. What's wrong with the perfectly respectful monosyllable "black"?

I hope it gets bigger, Jodi Weiss I am sure had a part in this. He is the best leader this dysfunctional organization ever had. Whoever knew and protected these losers needs to be held accountable.

Dudes Shut the f@@k up about JFed. He was ten thousand times better then what we got now and you know it. Watts and his team was going on when Cline was here. Just maybe we should have kept our mouth shut about Weiss instead of bitching like a bunch of wimps and look what we got now. We are our own worst enemy. Ive been on the job since Martin was our Supt. Let LeRoy catch you without a hat and see how you would catch a day. Trust me JFed was awesome for a Supt. That's the problem you 5 or 10 year wonders you don't have a clue. You will never admit when you are wrong. We were wrong. Now go fix your hair and wear your little Underaromour cap with your uniform and look like the wanna be police that you are.

I really hope your just trying to get a rise out of people and are not serious! We are cops, not criminals. We dont take money from people because we dont "make enough". Hey, I think I make a pretty decent salary compared to some of my friends in the private sector. Second, its never right to rob or take money from anyone as a police officers.. even if they are piece of sh(t dope dealers... we are cops so we can arrest them, not work with them. If we dont make enough money then we get a side job or make arrests so we can get court time... moron. Stay off this site if your gonna stay stupid sh*t

I just want to thank the midnight crew of the 025 district. my relative gets her car stolen at a gas station and calls 911. however, since she cant get her info (i.e. plate number ) immediately, she gets the brush off. the responding unit goes as far as dropping off at her house and leaving her there without any police service. they tell her to make a report at the district. once in the district, they get another brush off. In the end, my relative now has to get her car out the lot from sacramento and pay 2000.00 because the person who stole they car was arrest for a dui.
seems to me the officers didn't know what they were doing from the start? once again, thanks for taking care of the residents of beat 2512....

Exactly, if you are an adult you should know your license plate number. It is time to be a big boy or girl and know your numbers by heart(dl, plate, ssi, phone, address) . You can do it sweetie just stop updating your Facebook status for 10 minutes(as if anyone gives a fuck about you shitty haircut) and look at said numbers. Eventually it will seep into the abyss known as your brain.

I have been a copper for ten fucking years and have worked in a lot of places and never have seen anyone take any money or do any other prison worthy shit. You really think these people do this shit in the open? They don't. The real problem is that it is too easy to become a member of the CPD. Like GMac this will happen when you draw from the "community at large." They need to attract higher caliber people who have greater integrity. Of course they would have to pay more, treat people like adults, and shit canned the political bullshit. That's never going to happen so this shit IS GOING TO HAPPEN. Pieces of shit were a piece of shit before they were hired and they will be a piece of shit after they are hired. You have to stop the turd before it floats over the bowl.

No offense officer but I'm fairly certain that your patrol area is not as busy as Chicago neighborhoods are...we have more people than you. I would NEVER want to work 12 hours a day. No matter how much time off, working 12 hours a day is a death sentence of burnout with citizens. It's just too much.

Work F,S,Su Off M,T work W,Th
Off F,S,Su, Work M,T Off W,Th then repeats....With the extra days off the city owes I may work a 3 day weekend 4 or 5 times in a year...time off is amazing...Court time is not an issue..trust me...If you went to this schedule you would never want to go back to 8 1/2's....

2/15/2012 08:35:00 PM

You young guys who go out to party or find chicks are thinking this schedule is so great. Try being on the job 17+ years and thinking 12 hours is so cool! Listen, I want to be at home with my family...every night God willing, not just on the nights i'm OFF. No one should work 12 hours with the smoking of calls we get daily. We are not firemen who can relax until we get a call, if we get one (no offense to firemen). We are rolling from the moment we get our radios and that's not going to change anytime soon with the number of officers retiring monthly. Working 4 eight hour days with 2 off still gives the city 40 hours a week but they didn't want to give you that, no they wanted to make you work longer. Now they want you to work even longer. This is not the job and city to roll around in a beat car for 12freakin hours. Cannot understand why you are willing to disrupt your entire day just to get a day off. Sounds pretty moronic.
