A Nice Story

In this age of instant communication, like Facebook Snapchat, Instagram and such, someone appreciates the police:


Sometimes it's the little stories that make the best impressions.

Now Retired...

Over the years I received quite a few notes and thank-you letters. Some were written on corporate stationary by secretaries, but the best were hand written on note paper and very simple. I will never forget the story that came with each one of them.

I kept those and value them more than any Honorable or Ribbon I ever received.

Sgt. Scherer, M. Lemus, and M. Black are good people. Nice job to everyone.

Nice story BUT, I didn't see this splattered across every news edition on 2,5,7,and 9 for the last 5 days.

Funny how a "bad cop" story gets as much airplay as they can give it, but something like this is nowhere to be found.

Half of Chicago's problems lie in a liberal media mess that could be an effective tool against crime - if they worked with the police.

Next case.

For every "horror" story we hear about, there is one like this.
Good to see CPD get some recognition from the citizenry!

That is a nice story. It's not clearing a homicide, but good police work is important on all levels.

I bet some of you are waiting for me to goof on the north side police. Not gonna happen.

There are still people out there who understand and appreciate the police.
The special ones actually take the time to let it be known.
Thank You...

Yes, you're absolutely right, SCC. IF you can get past the jagoffs at 911. It's just amazing how rude and cavalier the call takers can be. Many times they are the first contact anyone has with the Department, and they can set a very poor tone by their impertinent behavior.

You are exactly what is wrong with this Department. A nice story about your fellow officers and all you can think about is yourself.

That's because all the bicycles on the south side were stolen from the north side already....

Dont hold your breath because you will never see a story about the police recovering a bicycle wheel for 5 days on all the major news stations

Good Work Guys.

Questions: I hear a lot about catalytic converters being stolen off cars on the street.

Are they VIN numbered?

Are they being stolen for replacement parts?
(I believe it is illegal to install a used catalytic converter on a car.)

OR

Are they being stolen for quarter ounce of platinum they contain?

In either case, who is buying them?

Unfortunately charges will be dropped when the victim fails to appear in court after the 2nd continuance.

More importantly did those officers get a event number for a positive community interaction?

I agree with an earlier poster. I valued the letters from citizens the most. Honorable mentions and life saving awards were only as good as the sergeant who was supposed to write them up but left the district or never got around to putting you in for them. I KNOW I saved the LIVES of FIVE people and when I hear people putting down the police , it's always a little humbling to them when you ask how many lives they saved while sitting at their desk.

When I worked at a suburban PD, if there was just the slightest gripe of one of us (911 operators) getting mouthy with someone on the phone, we got hauled into the Sgt's office and got chewed out. We didn't dare pull stunts like that, and you never, ever were allowed to swear at someone on the phone, that would have bought time off!

I have always tried to back officers, and thank them for their service. Who else is going to come to help someone they don't even know, and see if there is some raging nut inside your house when you come home and find your door wide open? I'm sure as hell not going inside that house.

So thank you every day for the job you do every day, not knowing if you're going to see your families at the end of your shift, ( God I hope you do ) and please remember that there those of us that do say special prayers every night to keep all of you safe even though we don't know you.

Considering they are at 50% manpower, I say fuck yeah. 016 is huge and all the resources are on the south and west sides, HREAT JOB. All you south and west side tough guys, great job too.

The best thank you I ever received was a heart felt hand written letter from an elderly woman who resided in 015 in the early 90's. My partner and I quickly recovered her stolen auto after a short vehicle/foot chase. After returning to recover/ secure her car we discovered it had a flat . After returning to the car We took the cuffs off the bad guy and had him change the flat with a revolver pointed at his head. We have plenty of friends out there, they're just not as vocal.

I do not not know the others, but Bruno has always been a class act. Not only a good guy but a great police officer. The west side doesn't miss you, but the west side officers do. I'm glad to see you guys helping real people out, instead of dealing with the west side oxygen thieves. Be safe to all.

The whole point of this post isn't about honorable mentions, it's about seeing something positive written about the police for a change. This isn't a contest. We all know that you two guys are the best coppers on this job, you just told us!

If you are going to your supervisors begging for honorables you must be a real tool - good luck with that!
