Good Times in 025

From the comments:
  • Commander Pena Update 025th District

    2 weeks in and 025 is now probably the worst place to work. Her ludicrous ideas and hair brained schemes are going to turn 025 into one of the most difficult places to work.

    Hey Sup, what were you thinking when you sent this merit heavy know nothing to a working district.

    one of her early ideas because there is a spike in auto thefts, write the victim a ticket for unattended motor vehicle if their car is stolen while warming up in front of the house.

    really ? add insult to injury.....and she said that applied to cars running with remote starts on them. apparently she has never had a car with remote start because if she did she would know its impossible to steal a car that's running on remote start.

    I have been on the job less than 10 years but I have never not wanted to come to work since I have been in 025, well not until now....

    she is in over her head but for some reason the super thinks she knows whats going on

    time for a transfer, but I cant

    anywhere but working for this know nothing misfit of a boss

    010 I am sure you are glad she is gone
You know Garry isn't checking any of the backgrounds of these shining examples of policing. Pena should have (or might have) served a bunch of suspension time for assault and battery on students back in the day. Why does it seem that the boss who makes the most coppers miserable are the ones getting ahead?

Normally I would bust this kids balls for having barely enough time to get a working day furlough, but I can't really disagree with what he/she is saying.

There was great rejoicing on a biblical scale when she left the 10th District.

Did she ever check the city ordinance on UNATTENDED MOTOR VEHICLE MOTOR RUNNING.

It specifically exempts those started with a remote starter.

But she would have failed that question on any promotion exam.

But any goof who leaves a car running and unlocked with the key in the ignition deserves the banana.

Look at the leadership over there. On third watch you have a sgt arrested for agg csa several years ago. Another lost his job for stopping to eat while he left an offender in the wagon who ended up dying while he was enjoying dinner. And another one who can't seem to make a decision without running to the Lt. for approval.
It's a complete joke over there.

Let me see if i can give u a idea of the of the 025 district, it's kind of like a flotilla of ships. The first ship coming into view would be the 009 district, a beautiful ship with sparking regal lines manned by aggressive smart young coppers, every line and sail in perfect working order. Then the 020 district ship comes by and it's a beautiful sailing ship, manned by all females, much like the 020 district is and the female crew is lolling about not doing much but acting like the real police. Then the 025 district monstrosity of a ship shambles into view. There's a cloud of storm clouds that continuously follow the ship as it lurches left and right and can't follow a straight line. As you look at the crew, you see pirates with hooks and whale bone for legs, drunkenly falling off the rigging into the ocean while singing for he's a jolly good fellow. The first watch are up in the yardarms pissing on the 2nd watch . The second watch is planning a mutiny and the third watch is such a smelly fornicating bunch of scoundrels, they are kept below decks for everyone's safety. Welcome to the 025 district, i wouldn't work with another bunch of misfits other than these.

It's one hell of an FU to the guys in 025 to put a commander there that they know full well how much she kills morale. When dozens and dozens of people are miserable because of her and 35th knows it, the message is clear how they feel about the troops.

025 isn't a bad place to work, all things considered.
One thing that the troops will need to address is the refusal to allow time due. Apparently they are now refusing time due, on personal days with over 10 day notice. I believe that would be a contract violation.
And this is 025. If the union reps don't correct it, the troops will.
Pena has already pissed off the tact teams (who are the only ones who actually worked with/for her when she was in 025 a few years ago). She is now irritating the blue shirts. I'm sure it wont be long before she pisses off the white shirts, and then Pena is going to find 025 a very lonely place.

Grand Central is a very large, very populated, and very fast district. It is filled with a lot of officers who like to work, and know what they are doing. The production of the officers at Grand Central, overall, is among the top in the city, statistically. If that production changes, whether by apathy, or intentionally, it would be very bad for the commander.
It also has some pretty strong politics, in both the black and spanish communities. Pena really can't afford to anger the officers any further.

Dear 025,

We on the southwest side have always admired your ability, as a unit, to chew up and spit out horrible bosses.. Years ago you dealt with Capt./Lt. E.O. (Sorry about that, but it's not our fault). Today you have another 010 import to deal with, and she is far worse. That too was not our call. But thank you anyway for taking her off our hands. You are true heroes. Godspeed.

You referred to 025 as "working" district. As if 010, her last stop, isn't. Though it doesn't get the mention of say...007 or 011, 010 is far and away one of the busiest (working) districts. Click over to Zone 10 sometimes. Most days, 010 has more shit going than 011.

011 is not much better. We thought Babs would put a muzzle on "He who must not be named," but not so much. Officers are now being formally counseled on their lack of contact card activity only!! A few supervisors have stood up to the XO, citing Illinois and Supreme court laws on quotas. These supervisors have been ordered by their (2nd & 3rd watch) Lt's to do this (it hasn't reached 1st watch yet...) To their credit, thay have been including a line, stating, to the effect that "there is no CPD order setting minimum requirements on the number of contact cards required to be generated each day."

Someone should tell Commander Pena that the keys need to be in the car to cite someone for the IVC violation, 625 ILCS 5/11-1401. And I'm guessing, if there is a MCC charge, that it mirrors the IVC charge.

Remote start? How can that even apply? The law is for a car with the keys in the ignition unattended, right? I wouldn't even bother with that. She can't make you do something that's unlawful and that clearly sounds unlawful.

Sounds an awful lot like 011! West has decided to implement her meritorious policing methods. Between her, XO Buscemi and the LTs, it's an absolute shit show.

West has decided that time due is limited to single digits every day. Her justification? Someone got shot in 011. (I'm sure you all heard about it on the international news, as it's such an anomaly.) Pay no mind to the fact that 011 has almost 400 P/Os. She has also told P/Os (via the spineless Lts) on each watch that they MUST produce at least 2 contact cards per day. She has ordered that officers be officially counseled if they don't meet that standard. This has already happened to at least a dozen P/Os. Before everyone starts bitching about how it isn't hard to do contact cards, ALL of these officers that were counseled have multiple arrests, anovs, parkers an movers and some contact cards. Not dogs by any means. They were all told that arrests and other activity don't count. Only contact cards. And yes, the "union" has been contacted, and the P/Os were told "too bad".

Then you have a certain LT on 3rd watch who actually went to roll calls and told everyone that if they see someone on their beat one day, and then see that same person the next day, but he is wearing different clothes, that a contact card should be done. Apparently crimes against fashion are now legit. The LT also stated that the detectives should be called when contact cards are completed. The D unit is going to LOVE that!

According to West and the LTs, the mission teams in 011 are the best and brightest too. Of course they are. With literally 2 years on the job (one of those being spent on foot patrol), they are obviously policing geniuses. Their arrest reports certainly prove that! (Sarcasm, if it wasn't obvious enough)

I'm sorry that 025 is going through hell too. This meritorious plague has really destroyed a once proud and functioning department. Strap in boys and girls. This plummeting spiral to rock bottom is going to be rough.

Difference between our new cloutorious bosses and the bosses of old are:
1 Did the job in every rank.
2 Weren't and triple or quadruple meritorious promotees.
2 Would not ask anyone to do something that they have not done.
3 Did not command respect because of their rank but were given the ultimate respect because of their humility, toughness, compassion and fairness.
4 Of course not every boss was like this back in the day but they were the rule and not the exception.
5 Today they are the exception and their numbers are dwindling fast, almost to the point of extinction.
The devil of the demoncratic machine has a stranglehold on our once proud department. What was once a proud structured command of our paramilitary organization is today no more than glorified Streets and San workers with the best clout. Just look at who is the head of streets and San is now. Mr Williams

She sounds like a tool but I see nothing wrong about writing someone for leaving car running as long as:
1. Doors are unlocked
2. Keys are inside
I'll either write mover or anov and give it to the driver when s/he comes back to the car. I think it's better to write a ticket then do paper for stolen car.
It's a good preventive measurement and stupidity has to be punished sometimes.

"using her head"?!? BULLSHIT! So bad ideas are better than no ideas. A officer with her time on the job should have learned from every body, the best and the worst, and know what to do and how to lead.

She has never been rewarded with promotion for stellar performance as a police officer, detective, sergeant or lieutenant but because of multi-minority status and clout. She came into the 10th District and with the blessing of Garry McGoofball and the aid of Cynthia should-have-been-in-jail White all but completely ruined a great place to work.

"I've never worked directly for..."

Talk to anyone who worked FOR her. Talk to anyone who worked with, around, any where near, over or under or had any contact with her and you will find out.

She always left people with a bad taste in their mouth.

Could some of the good P.O.s and good bosses who escaped the 10th District during her rein please come back. Things are better now and we need you.

Nothing good or bad lasts forever.

When Pena had her roll call rants in the 10th District she occasionally mentioned that she wasn't going to stay any longer than she had to. Presumably when her gold braid pension was fixed, when she has the age she would hold the "Cake & Coffee" and be gone.

She has been passed over for anything higher because some of the skeletons in her closet started to rattle. She hasn't been demoted because of clout and minority status and McNumbnuts hasn't demoted any gold stars.

So if someone wants to do the math, when will she turn 55 and she already has four years as commander? I just hope she is older than she looks because of a good dye job. Does anyone know that reporter who will get all those old CR Number files and can bring out those skeletons? Then someone from her office can order her cake, make it a small one.

Peña is a complete JOKE. Survived a suspension, a district who's morale she took the holiest of shits on in 010, acts like what she's doing works, cancels days off, limits days off to far below to what's contractually agreed upon, (basically pissing on the contract that used to protect her as a PO. Wait- who the fuck am I kidding? This sycophant never did shit in her career- pull the numbers), and basically carries an arrogance of a battle tested war hero when all she has done is used her clout for everything she has ever received and acts as if she deserves it. She SHOULD be ashamed for how she treats her officers, but with her ego believes she should be recognized and thanked. Sadly she will remain there in 025 and ruin what little shred of pride is left on the watches. Sadly -- I'm just glad she's not pissing on the blue in 010 anymore. Hopefully 025 will get some relief from her bullshit soon.

I'm sorry to say this but it is true, she has a negative outlook towards others because she has her own identity crisis and takes it out on others, and why not the coppers that work for her, because if she treats outsiders this bad she might just get her ass kicked, once upon a time in the 20th district many many years ago, and most likely none of you folks would remember but there was a watch commander who messed with the troops,well they had enough one night and refused to hit the streets until a street deputy responded, he heard their issues, and this W/C was dealt with properly. Officers DO NOT be insubordinate but state your issues with your commander to your district FOP Rep, the same for you SGTS. She has a bad track record and we all know why she is an exempt. Shame on the Chicago Police Department , there are better people to lead our troops.

You referred to 025 as "working" district. As if 010, her last stop, isn't. Though it doesn't get the mention of say...007 or 011, 010 is far and away one of the busiest (working) districts. Click over to Zone 10 sometimes. Most days, 010 has more shit going than 011.
___________
Actually 010 isn't busier than 011, its just that some of the POs won't and some sergeants won't shut the fuck up. They feel the need to go into detail about every little thing and unnecessarily tying up the air with nonsense. Stop trying to justify why you aren't doing your job over the air. Just code the damn thing. People have been complaining about this for decades. But please 010, just shut the fuck up already and code it. And stop coming over the air like there is an emergency and then ask for lunch. Also for the 1000th time, shitheads fighting each other is not an emergency. Again please shut the fuck up already.

Let me see if i can give u a idea of the of the 025 district, it's kind of like a flotilla of ships. The first ship coming into view would be the 009 district, a beautiful ship with sparking regal lines manned by aggressive smart young coppers, every line and sail in perfect working order. Then the 020 district ship comes by and it's a beautiful sailing ship, manned by all females, much like the 020 district is and the female crew is lolling about not doing much but acting like the real police. Then the 025 district monstrosity of a ship shambles into view. There's a cloud of storm clouds that continuously follow the ship as it lurches left and right and can't follow a straight line. As you look at the crew, you see pirates with hooks and whale bone for legs, drunkenly falling off the rigging into the ocean while singing for he's a jolly good fellow. The first watch are up in the yardarms pissing on the 2nd watch . The second watch is planning a mutiny and the third watch is such a smelly fornicating bunch of scoundrels, they are kept below decks for everyone's safety. Welcome to the 025 district, i wouldn't work with another bunch of misfits other than these.

As a Mexican merchant in the Little Village Businessman's Association once said about the former commander in 010: " You can't trust a Mexican who doesn't speak a lick of Spanish."

This must be a joke, working an outside unit mainly in 011 on zone 10, I'll say that you are wrong. The 011th dist radio protocol has to be the Absolutle worst I've ever heard. You not only have people routinely junping in the middle of foot chases to ask for event numbers for 150 S Campbell but some idiot who plays his jibber jab quotes whenever that good Sgt. 1070 comes on. I mean it's funny but please don't throw stones. Also, I remember a few Sgts 11-dub and tricky dick that love hearing themselves scream and talk on the radio when they're were important things going on. And who ever that goof in 010 is that used to be on the traffic car, please take that mans radio away or better yet hide him in station security. It's embarassing

We do have a lot of bad Sgts on 3rd watch. Unfortunately, if u have a problem with one of the new ones JS who is nothing but cordial and accommodating to everyone you better look in the mirror. One of the rapid officers who appreciate a good boss.

I imagine the authors of "The Gallows" are now retired. It sure was a hoot, we used to laugh our asses off reading it. If any of the former authors are here, CHEERS TO YOU! You made many afternoons a bit more hilarious. They even had a "Stalag 17" back in the day. Damn, crusty, old, ornery fuckers all!

3rd watch might suck.1st watch ain't so bad though, just clear up from jobs in a reasonable time and bring in a bit of activity. ( a parker a day keeps the white shirt away! )

First post was written by a cop for 010 for sure. The cops in 10 talk beyond belief, it is insane. 1020/1070 is by far the worst. He makes a 3 min speech over the air all the time, he is insane. Our sgt in 11 asked him one day to keep it short because someone might need the radio for an emergency. He replied "my bosses think I am doing a great job". His boss was PENA!!!!

Second post was written by a cop in 011 for sure. I know because we in 11 know we are all sick of the long worn out explanations from cops in 10 that are actually 5p's

This is why Mr. T has been telling 1020/1070 SHUT UP FOOL, QUIT YOUR JIBBER JABBER.

Code your jobs in 10, we don't need a narrative for a dog barking dumb asses.

Good times in 025?
Come to 012 where if you work the desk you can watch movies all night or work out. Or if you're on the beat car, just stay down on a job for 4 hours and code it 19b when the dispatchers call you because the supervisors got no balls. Better yet, 06 cars...no need for activity and go home early.

Yet these clout babies still complain.

When I was a much younger officer a Sgt. got dumped to 025. He stood at the desk near tears. I asked him "How's it going?" He said "I'm drowning in CR numbers, maybe if I start sustaining some of these, these guys will learn some control." Without missing a beat, an older officer says "Yeah, and maybe your car catches on fire in the lot." Welcome to 025 Mario

Dig up ol' Joe Curtin, prop him up in the DC office and wire a ho-ho-ho box to him. Miss that raging old fart now?
At the very least, he was an old school copper. Those were the good old days. If you need a lesson plan, look for some old Gallows behind the lockers and see how it was done back then.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Good ole Joe Curtin is still doing the flip in his grave over the gallows. Those guys had the whole CPD rolling.
I remember having to see Joe a couple times a month cause I was working narcotics and had to brief him.
I always came in 025 at about 1700hours and knew he would be ripe for setting him off. I always brought him a half dog of Johnnie Walker Red. I would tell him bull shit rumors about him and gave him some copper I knew that was the author of the gallows. The copper worked a far south side district and never set foot anywhere North of Madison Street.
Joe would go on a rank and finish the half dog in 10 min'. Joe forgot who gave him info and I would feed him shit eveytime I seen him. When I walked passed the desk the guys knew I was fucking with Joe and threaten to whack me, we all laughed out asses off everytime I set foot in 025.
Joe would then come out to the front desk and go crazy on everyone. The 2nd. floor windows of the old A/5 dicks had the dicks looking down and laughing their asses off.
Joe did fuck with many a copper' lives to no end and died from the sauce. Joe was Eddie Burke' guy and was protected.
The bottom line with Joe was to agree with him and throw him a half dog and he would treat you right. I thought he was funny but I was not on his shit list. The copper' today got to know how to handle shit bosses, b.s them to death. They are all ego freaks and love to hear you think they are great. Your life will be easy and you will always get the last laugh.
025 was built on an old Indian grave yard for sure.
Many a great and good copper/ boss worked there since it opened in 1982. You guys in 025 were always class acts in my book when I was OTJ.
Guess what, mayor Jane Byrne' name is on thee brass plaque at the front door. The prick minget mayor forgot that one to remove.

give it some time, folks. So far, it's just been messing with the tact teams with demanding movers, some idiotic micromanagement with contact cards on days, and some time off issues (which really should be jumped on right now, by the officers involved and FOP).
If/When it gets totally out of hand, it will be obvious to everyone.
