Every Day Isn't Like This Kid

  • A Chicago Police probationary officer on his first day on the job Sunday helped save a man’s life.

    Probationary Officer Nicholas Picicci and Field Training Officer Robert Cavaiani responded to the 3100 block of North Marmora at 8:20 a.m., according to a news release from Chicago Police.

    The officers found a 62-year-old man inside his home having a medical emergency, police said. He was unresponsive and not breathing.

    Picicci and Cavaiani began CPR immediately and continued until the fire department arrived. The man was taken to Community First Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.
All kidding aside, a great start to the career. Congratulations to the Officers.

I hope the young lad didn't catch any diseases. Another thing to think about is if the victim had died, the young officer would have been sued, terminated, and maybe even charged with murder in this climate. He should have just waited for the ambulance. Glad it worked out this time though but his FTO should give him a good talking to.

If you're lucky enough...IF, you'll have handsome Bob Caviani for an fto. He will teach you things and give you direction that only a quality seasoned vet of the streets can show you. He's a great Cop and an awesome Dad. Good job Bob, I would have expected nothing less from you.

Well done, "FTO Bob" and Officer Picicci. Like me, I'm certain that Officer Picicci will never forget his first tour with the CPD.

My very first job on my very first tour of duty: Just out of midnight roll call, we got a seemingly routine "disturbance in the tavern" at 358 1/2 S. Pulaski Rd.

Fortunately, I was partnered up with a seasoned street-wise veteran, the late A'Roderick "Ronnie" McLaughlin, a Walter Payton lookalike. Long story made short. A double cop killer wannabe abruptly pivoted on us with a gun in hand. "Bang-Bang". Ronnie shot him and saved our lives with his snub-nosed double tap from beneath his winter cap. My closest call during my entire career.

God bless you, Ronnie. If it weren't for you, that terrifying encounter could have also been the last night of my life.

It was nice to see a POSITIVE story for a change for CPD.

Hope everyone gets some positive recognition for the jobs they do.

It is hard to work in a chronically negative environment.

Next case.

Honestly when i heard this on the news, the first person to pop in my head was Fto Bob. I was in Fto class with him and he is an all around great guy. Bob sort of coached alot of us through the fto program. A great leader and he knows his stuff. Great job guys!!

09:16 - You raise a very valid point carrying a CPR mask. Like the former Chief of the Honolulu PD who kept asking his city council for AEDs & guess who was the first save for HPD - the chief! So since our CALEA crazed Superindunce-do wants to raise standards - why don't we have stocked first aid kits in our squads?? i still can't forget when a suburban PO showed me the gear that his agency had neatly organized in the trunk including a first aid kit with military type "quick clot" bandages to help stop bleeding. Spare ammo and flares were also packed and ready to go.
If my beat car had an inflated spare w/ jack - we were fully equipped. The first aid kit was a ziplock bag with a few items mooched from the nice nurses at the ER.
So McStreetlight - get on board w/ CALEA and start equipping our officers with something as basic as a first aid kit. Is that too difficult a goal or is CALEA simply an excuse to modify uniforms, ban visible tattoos, and generally mess with the rank & file??
And Disability Dean - can you get on board or is this too controversial??
- Congrats to the FTO & the rookie in 025.

Great Job guys. Officer Picicci don't listen to the negativity expressed by 11/09/2015 03:44:00AM You are always going to have people like that on the job. You did what you were supposed to do and did it well. He is the one who needs a talking to. I don't know your FTO but from the comments on this board it sounds like you have a good one. Listen to him and learn. This job has its good days and bad days as you will see, and as someone who is almost at the end of the road I wish you and all of your classmates the best and hope your careers are as rewarding as mine has been.

You are an absolute goof. I'd say more but this is a thread congratulating the fine work of those two coppers who save a life. All that aside if you for a minute believe yourself that you would stand by and let a man die so that you don't have to be involved, I highly recommend you quit tonight. If I ever see it I I will ensure you are disciplined and hopefully fired.
To the officers involved I offer my respect and accolades for a job well done.

Are you fucking kidding me? Please retire, you prick. Hopefully you wouldn't think the same if it was your father dying and some lazy jagoff stood there waiting for the bus.

The point wasn't to bash the officers but to educated them. CPD does not equip us to perform CPR on the public in a safe manner, nor do they train us which does in fact open you up to a lawsuit if something goes wrong and you don't have training. Now maybe this officer had some outside training and maybe he was carrying his own safety equipment and that would be a different story, but I doubt it. Or maybe he performed hands only CPR which would also be okay. If he performed CPR with his mouth however, THEN HE NEEDS A GOOD TALKING TO. Anyone with any time on this job knows the kind of shit and filth we come in contact with out in the street. It was very noble of the kid to try to save a person's life but officers do have to consider their safety as well.

So to jackass 11/09/2015 12:57:00 PM, don't call people that have been doing this job longer than you've been alive cowards. Clean some of that hair gel out of your ears and try listening once in awhile.

Excerpts from NBC 11 in Atlanta:

""Full CPR is the preferred method but Hands-Only CPR is a simple skill for those not trained in full CPR or are uncomfortable with mouth to mouth contact, McIntyre said. It's about 100 bests per minute. We like to say you want to follow the beat to the song "Staying Alive" to do that,"
Through the 'hands-only' CPR approach, the Red Cross wants to give bystanders the confidence to step in when they are needed most."
