Quotas in 010

Guess what brilliant policy is being reintroduced in 010?
  • Here is something new and show all of us how fucked up this department is, in the 010 district commander had meeting with sgts, sgts were allowed to pick po's that work 2nd watch, to be supervised under them. And at the end of the tour sgts have to write a to from with the activity from these po's. 4 contact cards, parkers/movers are required otherwise you will lose your car/starting times. Isn't all this quotas, oops I forgot we don't have quotas. Goes to show you what happens when you have a commander that has been promoted thru merit and doesn't know how to run a district effectively. Ruiz was moved the 4th district because he did such a good job in 010 why all the changes.

We certainly hope someone got the directive in writing. And someone else is keeping copies of the To-From reports the sergeants are filing out. It can only help when the inevitable lawsuit comes down. And all you officers in 010 ought to start coming in with zeros across the board.

Someday, someone will win a shitload of money from one of these multiple meri-clout-orious promoted hacks and the entire structure that allows unqualified, incompetent and ignorant people to rise to leadership positions of this department will finally be brought to public light.

Please start writing case reports for every call you respond too. We need to quit killing crime by coding out jobs. Take the ten minutes to write a report for all the bs calls, let the jobs stack up. Make sure you take a lunch and 2 15 min personnels. The command staff and mayor don't give a damn about the police ofc's. Write reports for everything and then let them explain what the real crime numbers are.

There are so many supervisors that try to mess with everybody, taking them off cars for punishment. Yeah, smart idea stupid! Ok, so take me off my car, away from my partner. Now your garanteed that I will not give you any numbers.... At all!!!! What would that prove?
That's why this department is in the mess that it's in. Mess with our morale even more. What do we have on this job to look forward to? A pension we may never see? We get treated like crap from citizens on a daily basis, going from job to job because of low manpower. Make us live in this city that is so corrupt, we owe 20 million to a meter company! And politicians all get their sweet pensions for a part time jobs they have.

Changing things up is a "brainstorm" of many supervisors that they think will help the watch, when in fact it only going to worsen morale and make our working conditions more miserable. Why don't you ask us what we need to help you get the results you want?

Listen if you have a problem because she don't like dog asses get over it! She never did put a number on the activity that I heard of till now (on this blog), nobody is that dumb in this day and age.
However when she was on the street last week and asked for a couple car to assist her and about 6 or 7 cars showed up & that pissed her off, then went on to complain about it for two days afterwards that's some dumb shit too! News flash commander in a working district (not merit unit) we back each other up and appreciate back up, the more the merry'er! Get off your high horse! You are back in patrol! 010 was once a great district to work in, and you are tragically putting a fast end to it! But it's still the ghetto, you should be happy that anybody shows up to roll call to deal with this day in and day out. If the PO's wanted to be dog asses and micro managed they would leave 010 and go to some northside slow district where your Management style maybe accepted as the norm. Just remember the PO's working out there are gonna make you or break you. The bridges you burn don't always have to be your superiors.

Maria Pena was a good copper as a patrolman in 013 & was basically well liked by everyone during her time there.

Marqutte is a great working environment. It's a shame that the some of the police have to be told to bring in the minimum. Maybe because there are certain officers just have it too damn good! Just earn one hour of your work day. See, the old skool officers use to say, " you dont want to give them too much just enough to stay on your car". The problem is not only in Marquette is there are too many five year wonders never had that skooling so because our department is sliding down so rapidly, these kids see the seniors reaction, they feel that they are entitled. Boy,this dilemma is city wide so Marquette, it's not only you.

There are so many officers who would wish they can get to a decent district ea, if 010 is decent in my eyes, you must already know what death trap I'm in) I would double all those numbers, I would bring in activity. Maybe because I havent been taken care of by placing me on an early car to work with my bestie I just couldn't sit in my car all day and gossip and do my nails and makeup.

Your right, SCC, the officers in 010 should start coming in with zeros across the board, but they won't. The attitude of “looking out for yourself” on this department seems to be more and more prevalent. All you young officers who are kissing ass and bowing down just to keep your start time and/or car will find that in the end you are actually doing more harm to yourselves then you realize. If we stuck together we would have this city and department by the balls – I seen it happen back in 92. And guess what, the city and department caved! Why, because we STUCK together!

Looking at what the city offered CFD, you can bet the city is going to try and screw us. If we don't stick together, we are just making it easy for them.

Start using the GO's and the law to fight them. We can beat them at their own game.

The idea is to get the Sgt's to screw with you all the time. She's putting big heat on them to make the P.O.'s come in with number's. Being busy as hell all day, running from one job to the next is not "activity" as her lap boy Sgt Ramon F was heard to be saying.
There's also been a car with a P.O. wasted every day for the last 2 months just sitting at 1900 s Troy, on all 3 watches because of some drug bust round up by OCD.What kind of stupid shit is that??? This is leadership??? It's Commander Pena's ship to sink, if she wants to. She'll learn that the P.O.'s in 010 may be bumped off car's for being to busy to worry about her idea of activity, but she's the one who goes to the COMP STAT meeting with shitty numbers because no one will work for her....

1988-- No sergeants promoted for years. Called a class of over 200-- Chief of Patrol sent them home. Why? Not enough minorities-- next step-- more minorities come marching in after classes eventually started- no matter what their test results.

1994-- Outside firm gives a sergeant and lieutenants exam.
1995--Class of 53 lieutenants start-- next thing-- city decides to merit promote 13 more. They come walking into class.


Almost 25 years of the nonsense and everyone wonders why the department is in the shape it is.

The ship is sinking!

5/27/2012 06:45:00 AM

Ship is sinking?

Thats funny. I am a 3rd Watch Sgt in 010. This To/From is only a more detailed description of the check off sheet you been filling out for the last 10+ years. It's a pain in my ass but not the end of the world. In a paperless Department, it wastes paper. Every new boss makes their changes. Sit back and wait. Eventually they all ease off and we continue to do our thing. Its a bosses job to try to come up with crime reduction strategies and with that sometimes it necessary for the Officers to step it up. 010 has become a war zone since this year began. Its not the new commanders fault, just too many gangs running around and not enough Police/back-up. Officers are less likely to stop and write a ticket, or make a quality of life, dope, reckless arrest, when shots are being fired or the jag offs are fighting with other PO's. Heardly a night goes by without a vehicle chase on Zone 10 or numerous foot chases requiring Officers to drop everything and join in. Reports keep coming in and the Officers spend as much as an hour and a half investigating and then trying to get to a working computer miles away from the call at the station. Handwritten paper reports were MUCH faster.
Im not agreeing with any leadership that uses threats in attempts to motivate Officers, but it will get better. Like any new Supervisor, they need to find out what works and remember where they came from. Recognize the good work and praise Officers when its due. Officers need to maintain control of the streets. With that, activity should automatically increase without someone having to "order" you to "do your job Office"...

Again you are looking at it all wrong. She wants movers. Give her movers. When the entire district is down on tvb's

------
You're an idiot. If she treats you guys like shit, then that's what you give her in return. A shit sandwich. An empty baggie. There's something to be said about old-timers. When you stepped in shit, you went to them first for advice, not run to your sgt. They were more helpful than a sgt. any day. Now old-timers are dwindling in numbers, and you guys buy the bullshit from bosses and bend over, and even hand them the lube.

story overheard....

private civil plaintiff's attorney (c.p.l.): well, officer, you detained my client, and wrote what you call a contact card, and documented that stop....exactly why?
officer: well....because we have to do so many of those each day
c.p.l.: why?
officer: because we are ordered to do so....by our commander...
c.p.l.: for a quota?
officer: well, yes....
c.p.l.: you stop people, and write a contact card, to satisfy your commander?
officer: yes, sir....
c.p.l.: what if the person you're stopping doesn't need to be stopped? you stop them anyway?
officer: our commander needs numbers...
c.p.l.: ladies and gentlemen of the jury......

How do any of us have any time to do anything proactive when we're going from job to job our entire tour plus with an everyday backlog of jobs and lunches denied due to little to no manpower. Fuck any boss that gets on your shit for not coming in with anything. This applies to the workers that actually want to fight crime and doesnt apply to the lazy dog asses that we unfortunately have on this job.

If you are denied a lunch = YOU BETTER PUT IN A SLIP AT THE END OF YOUR TOUR for the OT.

They CANNOT deny you a lunch.

m not agreeing with any leadership that uses threats in attempts to motivate Officers, but it will get better. Like any new Supervisor, they need to find out what works and remember where they came from. Recognize the good work and praise Officers when its due. Officers need to maintain control of the streets. With that, activity should automatically increase without someone having to "order" you to "do your job Office"...

Your post makes sense up to the "remember where they came from" part. That's the problem, where did she come from? Easy spot to merit spot to merit spot to merit spot to merit spot. That's a real morale killer.

The Commander never said to get certain numbers all she said was that everyone should pitch in, not only a few of us should work while the others take it easy. She reiterated that it was only a few officers dodging it. I for one like her style, take care of the workers not the dogs. If you been affected than maybe you should take a look in the mirror. I still have my partner, starting time and car. No worries here.

I was told my a 3rd Watch Sgt in 010 that they had to do a to/from regarding activity that their cars provided.

The ship is sinking!

Ship is sinking?

Thats funny. I am a 3rd Watch Sgt in 010. This To/From is only a more detailed description of the check off sheet you been filling out for the last 10+ years. It's a pain in my ass but not the end of the world. In a paperless Department, it wastes paper. Every new boss makes their changes. Sit back and wait. Eventually they all ease off and we continue to do our thing. Its a bosses job to try to come up with crime reduction strategies and with that sometimes it necessary for the Officers to step it up. 010 has become a war zone since this year began. Its not the new commanders fault, just too many gangs running around and not enough Police/back-up. Officers are less likely to stop and write a ticket, or make a quality of life, dope, reckless arrest, when shots are being fired or the jag offs are fighting with other PO's. Heardly a night goes by without a vehicle chase on Zone 10 or numerous foot chases requiring Officers to drop everything and join in. Reports keep coming in and the Officers spend as much as an hour and a half investigating and then trying to get to a working computer miles away from the call at the station. Handwritten paper reports were MUCH faster.
Im not agreeing with any leadership that uses threats in attempts to motivate Officers, but it will get better.

Everyone cries for bosses to be bosses and when one does what you ask, people still arent happy. This (06:45 AM) poster gets it. I believe its a handful of Officers the D/C was speaking to. Dont turn this into a "this City is gonna burn" issue. The whiners who are against every bit of Police work on this job should worry.... You too may be required to do your job one day! If you didnt want to be a Police Officer, why did you apply? No surprise that its a dangerous, thankless, exhausting job. If you wanted to drive around looking cool in a nice ride, you shouldve stayed on welfare. Police have the responsibilty of getting out of the car and dealing with problems. Mother F**ckin them doesnt do anything to them (only gets you a complaint you cant fix). Arrests, tickets, tows/impounds, etc changes things. The bosses complain we are lazy, but if every PO out there instituted a "zero tolerance" policy, the public who be very unhappy in this City. Just do something during your tour and keep the numbers good. Just remember, they will always want more........

Always been political but starting in 1988 it was the beginning of the end.

1988-- No sergeants promoted for years.

Called a class of over 200-- {1 Nov '88 after a 3 1/2 years of testing there were 243 to be exact, up to #249 on the "Standardized" (whites dropped back 17%) list before Judge Prentiss Marshall but 6 were dropped for drug testing} Chief of Patrol (Deputy Mayor Tim something) sent them home. (Can you imagine the emotional crash after 3 1/2 years).

Why? Not enough minorities-- next step-- (13) more minorities come marching in after classes eventually started- no matter what their test results.

(Why did they go up to #249? Because #249 threw a motion into Prentiss Marshall's Court that said if the city was going to pass over people because they were white/male they should pay them Sergeant's pay and benefits until they were promoted or end of career. Judge Marshall left that option open. It pissed off the FOP lawyers who wanted to start a long expensive/profitable law suit.)

1994-- Outside firm gives a sergeant and lieutenants exam.
1995--Class of 53 lieutenants start-- next thing-- city decides to merit promote 13 more. They come walking into class.


Almost 25 years of the nonsense and everyone wonders why the department is in the shape it is.

Maybe except the directive is coming from a three time merit promotee who everyone now is supposed to take seriously. This is the response your going to get if the department continues to abuse the so called merit system. These people get top spots, top pay handed to them on a silver platter and then they want everyone to work their asses off to make them look good. They get it the easy way but let the rank and file take all the risk. Sure plenty of us came on the job to work but in case you haven't been paying attention, this Mayor and many of the citizens don't want the police to be the police anymore, in fact when they are they get stripped and hung out to dry. What they want are revenue generators plain and simple.
No one, and I mean one should be triple promoted, it wreaks of impropriety because it is. Pay to play rules in this state, county and city. Liberal politicians have a lock on every aspect of the government including CPD bought and paid for. You can try all you want to put lipstick on this pig but it's still a pig.

Back in the day, part of the fun was making up names for contact cards or curfews or whatever. Make some shit up, fuck up their whole data base.

I'm telling you, if I was a civilian and just walking down the street going wherever, I would be totally pissed if my name ended up on a contact card for no reason.

A clean-as-a-whistle citizen needs to sue the city for being a victim of this b.s. Although that might be hard to find.

What's next, contact-carding cops?

Last summer, during a summer CTA detail for PPO's, there was an officer overseeing those PPO's that contact carded a woman having a heart attack!

That may be a bit extreme, but a contact card is not necessarily an indicator of criminal intent on anyone's part. I have filled one out for any type of contact with a citizen just telling them it is a unit of work and telling the truth like we gave them a lift or spoke to them about a any kind of 19-P matter. No crime involved; just cop citizen conversation and the citizen can always decline if he/she chooses.

MKerit promotion system? Yes, it is corrupt and needs to be fixed or eliminated. Gold stars and other rank holders who do not have the chops for the job? Yes, that situation has always been and always will be. Dog ass coppers who do little or nothing on the job and dare you to do something to them? Yes, those have been around since I came on the job in '68. Poor promotion and assignmet system that can be rigged for those who know someone? Yes, that has been around for many years. I was lucky and got a few promotions ( no clout) and I never could get an assignment to a good district on the north or south sides. But, I can tell you that at least half of the police officers on every watch that I worked in every district did little work . And, I can also tell you that every officer complained constantly about everything. I can see that nothing has changed.

Pena is going to be our last problem if we keep getting new officers like we got out of this last class that stayed in 10 on 1st watch. Lazy ass cops except for 2 (PW,MF). They do absolutely nothing, dog jobs so they can be free for transports even when arresting officers have a cage car, paper jump like crazy, truly believe that they DESERVE a REGULAR EARLY car 2 days off their status, can't even process a simple weed arrest and a quote from one of our new 30 second wonders"When I get off my status, Im going to run shit around here" Then lets not forget trying to take lunch during a police shooting, take your fat ass back to being a bouncer. You're a disgrace to the uniform that you squeeze into even if no one can see you because you're stuck on station security or 19th Troy. Im shocked you can even drive a squad car. Isn't you DL suspended for financial reasons or did LT look past that because he was complaining about approving an arrest report for a 143a or a reckless, he pretty much complains about em all.

How about zero tolerance on any illegal food vendors, peddlers, scavengers, ice cream trucks, flower peddlers, sales from vehicles, car dealerships dumping cars everywhere and having make-shift lots, drinkers, pissers (shitters), illegal tow drivers(trucks), non licensed/suspended/bogus insured DUI drivers, over 12 gangsta's riding bikes on the sidewalks, unlicensed alley mechanics, illegal "Rave" parties, etc, etc, etc.... Plenty of activity to shut down the whole District by tying up cars in the 1st 10 mins of your shift.

After a few weeks of that, go to the northend and add locking up the drug dealers, felony false report makers (he got a gun), trespassers at "Go Lo", "B.P." "Great Lakes Fish & Chicken", Illegal pirated DVD/CD salesmen, mini bikes, go carts, non licensed/suspended "high on whatever" drivers, prostitutes,illegal Douglas Blvd weekend party/ all day/night extravaganzas etc, etc, etc...

Then go back to the southend and lock up the gang banging jag offs, wife beaters, and mules moving millions in kilo's and tons of weed basically unchecked, etc, etc, etc...

Then work on the Forcibile Felony crimes and such.

Oh, I forgot.... Get separate events for each activity and call the action a "Mission". Keep the box covered! Gotta protect that corner till downtown decides the wasted manpower can end. Case reports dont count as your working activity. Write more parkers.....

Please dont forget to do your CTA, Park Checks as you fly towards the sound of automatic weapon fire....

These are just a few things you can work on to try be lucky enough to keep your cars and start times. If you cant find some activity by reading these suggestions, bid for the desk or lock-up... 1st Watch has an opening on the desk I hear.... Your welcome!
