New Contact Card Order

The roll out isn't until 01 January, but the Order was published this weekend for your reading pleasure. It's only 16 pages long and lists a whole bunch of things you will, shall, and must do, along with the requisite definitions, supervisor responsibilities and retention information.

Most ridiculous so far? You will fill out an "Investigatory Stop Report" even when you arrest someone, a clear duplication of effort keeping you off the street on paperwork instead of....you know....fighting crime.

Brilliant.

I wont need to read it since my "stopping shit-heads" days are over. If officers no longer stop the mutts as was done in Baltimore, we would tell the mayor who's boss.

This was discussed in 025 dist roll call. States attorney's will be looking for discrepancies in investigatory street stop report, GO case report and arrest report. Any discrepancies found will be used against the officer and kept track of for any future cases the officer maybe involved in.
If you stop a corner full of savages ... Let's say 5 you have to do 5 investigatory street stop reports and you better make sure they are all the same!
01 Jan 16.... The death of pro active policing in Chiraq

I blame Karen Murphy for this crappy order. Like the part that says you fill it out for a traffic tickets and then in the next section says you don't. On the plus side, get one in the beginning of your tour and you can hold yourself down til check off.

VIII A 2. In addition, Investigatory Stop Reports will be submitted for all Investigatory Stops and Protective Pat Downs that lead to an arrest, Personal Service Citation, Administrative Notice of Violation (ANOV), Curfew Violation Report, School Absentee Report, or other enforcement action.

VIII A 4.a. An officer performs a traffic stop on a vehicle after observing the vehicle run a stop sign. The officer issues the driver a Personal Service Citation for failure to stop at a stop sign, and completes and affixes a Traffic Stop Statistical Study sticker to the appropriate copy of the Personal Service Citation consistent with the Department directive "Illinois Traffic Stop Statistical Study." An Investigatory Stop Report will not be completed.

So which is it?

In fact, she appears to barely speak....Taxpayers dollars at work once again. Oh, for the good old days.

Proactive police work will be dead. They have taken all the fun out of this job. Self preservation boys and gals.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/12/20/off-duty-baltimore-cop-kills-robbery-suspect-brandishing-toy-gun.html

An off duty Baltimore copper shot and killed a man who tried to rob him using a toy gun. Apparently he had his service weapon in his bag and acted like he was going to hand over his wallet as he went for his weapon. The robber had a toy gun that looked like a real revolver and the veteran PO didn't know it was fake until after he killed the guy. The MSM (that stands for mainstream media, not men who ave sex with men, just in case you aren't clear on that yet) makes this out to be a mistake on the part of the off duty copper, and doesn't place the fault nearly as much on the offender, much like when they keep blaming the Cleveland officer who shot he kid plaing with his toy gun, and saying he was deemed unfit for duty and shouldn't have shot the 13 yo who had been taking his hands out of his pockets when it looked like he was reaching for a gun in his waistband. The good guys never win in the eyes of the press. You're damned if you do, and damned if you don't. Stay safe everyone!

And still SMH that you're (I say "you're" because I'll never write one - guaranteed) required to provide Dude a receipt with your name and button... might as well also provide him with an itemized list of assets to forward to his attorney for your Civil Rights suit.

And the mere fact that this order is 16 pages long practically ensures that 90% of those it most potentially effects won't read it. Ain't no time for that noise when they're slingin' blows at Thirty-Fourth and Vine like it's going out of style.

This is the biggest problem with the current Fop administration. Laws/legislation like this will pass because Dean has no clue what he is doing. Starting next month when we have contact with someone on the street we have to give them a receipt with our name and star#. This passed because no one from FOP took a stance against this in Springfield. I know that is hard to believe, but anytime there is a bill in Springfield it goes to committee. At that committee meeting Fop could have explained why this is bad legislation. Fop failed us again. Bills like this will continue to pass because Dean has no clue how this is important to policing. They will get whatever they want because no one is fighting for us.

The only contact you should do these days is to tell lawful citizens to arm themselves. The police will no longer be proactive in stopping the common everyday criminal! The everyday criminal will learn to fear those who conceal carry. The police should just wait at the station until a call comes out. Depending on the situation maybe a few cars are dispatched. The rest of the officers can work out while they wait for a call others officers can make food in the mess hall until they are in the rotation. There will be sleeping quarters for those who return from the fight they had with a mental who tried to disarm them and tried biting their nose off! After some rest they can grab a bite from the mess hall and be ready for there turn in the rotation. This can be done in 24 hour shifts! This is perfect very little interaction with public and you work only about 90 days a year!

Some people still love us.

This is from the front page of the bulletin from St. Christina's. Posted at district 22:


To all of our dedicated members of the Chicago Police Force.


In light of recent events and the negativity of some groups toward Police Officers, we want you to know how much we appreciate and admire your strength, courage and dedication in the protection of all people in the City of Chicago.


As Priests, we know all too well how some who let temptation in and stray away from God can tarnish the reputation of all in that calling. With faith and trust in God we persist in our call and continue to follow the Will of God for our lives. We do this out of our love for God and because Jesus Christ showed us the way.


Being a Police Officer is a tough job. In many ways we can relate your life to that of Jesus Christ. Christ watched over His sheep. You watch over the people of the City. Christ came to save souls. You protect the lives of those souls. Christ sacrificed His life for us by dying on the cross. You sacrifice your life for us by putting yourself in harm's way. You risk your life by walking into situations that are unknown, all in the pursuit of keeping us safe.


Christ was rejected and persecuted by many because they feared Him and didn't want to understand His way. Now you are being rejected and persecuted out of fear and misplaced anger. Christ said those who follow me will be persecuted. So know that you are in good company.


We are so very proud of you! You make a big difference in the lives of the people of Chicago. We admire you for your service. Please know that we pray for you each and every day. God will bless you, watch over you and keep you safe.


Thank you for your faith-filled dedication. You were called by the Lord to be a servant of God. Thank you for your "yes" in service to the greater good.


May God bless you and your families.


Fr. Tom Conde Fr. Michael Olson Fr. Tom Purtell
P.S. We are here for you. Please know that. When you need an ear to bend... bend ours.

After talking with an attorney I now realize that police officers have no privacy.

The audio systems that the activists and the City are forcing on us will not only pick up conversations with citizens we interact with but also private conversations that we have with our fellow employees. When we vent about an individual that we had contact with afterwards, in the privacy of our vehicle, that conversation will be recorded. If any deems that our conversation was inappropriate, even though it was private, we are opening ourselves up to discipline.

If we are having marital problems and our spouse hires an attorney that attorney can review conversations between partners after filing an FOIA request.

Also, I can see trial lawyers listening to hundred of hours of our private conversations hoping to find an inappropriate comment to utilize to further their claims. They will then demand that the City pay them for listening to these conversations.

What will Ralph Price, FOP and the City do to protect our privacy?

Nothing I fear!

The legislators just turn a blind eye to this car violence because they're bought and payed for by the powerful auto industry that believes in absolutely no vehicle restriction imposition. Contact your senator and tell him you are fed up with this vehicle violence and you're not gonna take it anymore. And while your at it call president sparkle farts and tell him the same thing!

"Protective Pat Down of the person, there must be reasonable suspicion of criminal activity and reasonable suspicion that the person is armed and dangerous or presents a danger of attack."

Now they're just adding their own perimeters. There's no state or federal law that says that. If someone has a weapon while I'm interacting with them, I'm going to take possession of it regardless of what they say their intended use of it is.

So now it's not enough that the person is armed, but I also have to articulate why they're dangerous? "Sir, I have to ask. Do you plan on using this knife in your pocket for anything dangerous?" "Nope. Just goin sit out here and whittle a stick."

Quite a difference from the usual Sun-Times articles kicking the fuck out of CPD. I'm sure Mary Mitchell and Neil Steinberg are crossing you off their Secret Santa list. I'm sure you look upon your work as different than your fellow Sun-Times cohorts and that you are not in the same boat as they are so to speak. Unfortunately it's too little, too late. The SS Sun-Times and the rest of the media fleet has sunk the USS CPD with their lie by omission brand of yellow journalism. The continual bombardment is like the Japanese bombing the USS Arizona for years after it was already on the bottom of Pearl Harbor.

The poet-protester is accused of a sexual assault by a female activist friend!!

AUSTIN — Malcolm London had been marching for four hours, and the Nov. 24 protest for police shooting victim Laquan McDonald was winding down.

London was directing activists to Grant Park, where the organization he is a part of, Black Youth Project 100, planned to end its march with a quote from Assata Shakur: "We have nothing to lose but our chains." Some planned to head next to a jail, where they'd call for arrested activists to be released.

Then, someone dropped a smoke bomb.

London, 22, said he was across the street from where the smoke bomb was released, but an officer approached him and asked if he was responsible. London said no, but then he was surrounded by — he estimates — six to eight officers. He screamed at the other protesters, telling them he was being arrested.

What happened next depends on whom you ask. London maintains the police were the ones roughing him up before he was charged with aggravated battery.

As he sat in jail, with those outside calling for him to be freed, a woman began to type an open letter to the black, queer, feminist group London works with and to all Chicago activists.

London has sexually assaulted her, she wrote, and she wanted him to be held accountable.

A 'martyr' or 'monster'?

The night of his arrest, London said an officer put him in a chokehold and put something that felt like a zip tie around his neck. He said he couldn't breathe or speak. His vision faded. He lost consciousness.

For a second, London said he thought he was dead.

When he regained consciousness, he was charged with aggravated battery for allegedly hitting an officer in the eye.

Prosecutors dropped the charges against London, and a judge told him, "You are free to go" — despite pleas from police to keep him locked up. Then-Police Supt. Garry McCarthy told a press conference that London was seen "clearly assaulting a police officer" but was instead "cut loose from custody which shouldn't happen."

When he left the courthouse, London was met by a large crowd of cheering supporters. Journalists had gathered, providing national coverage of him being released.

Meanwhile, a different story was developing online.

"He raped a friend of mine, and he's not a martyr, he's a monster," a Twitter user wrote to BYP100.

On Facebook and the blog publishing platform Medium, a post from a woman who identified herself as "Kyra" was being circulated. She had been sexually assaulted by London, Kyra wrote, and the #FreeMalcolmLondon campaign had been "traumatizing."

Some white shirts still believe in this whole contact cad, traffic stop card bullshit, that these actually make a difference. Please wake the fuck up, Gary is gone you won't get yelled at anymore when you have meetings. Compstat is a lazy way to police especially for the upper brass. You can walk into a meeting with a 300 page stack of paper with all these numbers and graphs and say "look what I did, look what my unit did". And all you as a supervisor have to do is point, click and hit print then beat off in your office for the next 5 hours. Stay thirsty my friends.

With the activist groups, so called community leaders, ACLU, Lawyers, police panels, IPRA, IAD, Media types, and most importantly the Justice Department investigating everything the police do. it would be insane to be an aggressive police officer. It's dangerous out there. Sad days. But will the bosses still ask the beat cops for silly contact cards? I'm guessing the merit ones will.

This is the biggest problem with the current Fop administration. Laws/legislation like this will pass because Dean has no clue what he is doing. Starting next month when we have contact with someone on the street we have to give them a receipt with our name and star#. This passed because no one from FOP took a stance against this in Springfield. I know that is hard to believe, but anytime there is a bill in Springfield it goes to committee. At that committee meeting Fop could have explained why this is bad legislation. Fop failed us again. Bills like this will continue to pass because Dean has no clue how this is important to policing. They will get whatever they want because no one is fighting for us.

ideas and suggestions:
1) if you need the police, call the ACLU...
2) if you need the police, call the offices of Loevy and Loevy, or G. Flint Taylor
3) if you need the police, call the offices of the local Democratic party,press 1 for a liberal, press 2 for a staff member who doesn't have a clue as to what the hell is going on, press 3 for the guy who works on the video and audio systems in the police cars, so you can see what is going on...press 5 to speak to some bum who overstayed his visa (but don't ask him where he is, since the government doesn't know anyway....
4) program you phone to call yourself, since many good cops will either not be responding, or responding so slowly that you may as well help yourself
5) send a thank you card to your local liberal, and buy a flag from another country to fly on your lawn (extra points for a flag from a Muslim country)
6) buy a subscription to the local Democratic liberal symphony orchestra, because if bullshit and un-Americal ideas were music, they would be the entire orchestra

I predict that the number of aggravated batteries and homicides will greatly increase next year.

I predict that the politicians will be blaming the police for not doing their jobs.

I predict that the "Black lives matter" crowd will say the increase in crime is caused by racist police officers.

I know that police officers will no longer be proactive but rather will only be reactive after receiving a call for service.

I blame Karen Murphy for this crappy order. Like the part that says you fill it out for a traffic tickets and then in the next section says you don't. On the plus side, get one in the beginning of your tour and you can hold yourself down til check off.

VIII A 2. In addition, Investigatory Stop Reports will be submitted for all Investigatory Stops and Protective Pat Downs that lead to an arrest, Personal Service Citation, Administrative Notice of Violation (ANOV), Curfew Violation Report, School Absentee Report, or other enforcement action.

VIII A 4.a. An officer performs a traffic stop on a vehicle after observing the vehicle run a stop sign. The officer issues the driver a Personal Service Citation for failure to stop at a stop sign, and completes and affixes a Traffic Stop Statistical Study sticker to the appropriate copy of the Personal Service Citation consistent with the Department directive "Illinois Traffic Stop Statistical Study." An Investigatory Stop Report will not be completed.

So which is it?

A traffic stop alone is not defined as an investigatory stop. If you stop dude for traffic offense only, and then you pull him out because you smell weed, and you pat him down, now it is an investigatory stop and you fill out the paper work.

No. Smart officers realize this new form is nothing but ammunition for civil rights lawsuits. It has nothing to do with policing. If you fill it out, make sure you dot all the Is and cross all the Ts. Any mistake will be seen as an officer making an illegal stop. Any failure to complete the form when making a stop will be seen as covering up an illegal stop. The only way to avoid problems is to avoid making stops. If you don't stop anyone, you don't need to explain or justify anything. It's really hard to be the police and not stop anyone. Just make sure you're stopping the right people for the right reasons, and make sure you document it properly.

Over the years I got some good case leads off of contact cards. It is an axiom that the citizens get the police department they want. They are saying stand down.

There was a decline in arrests / prisoners back in 2011 & 12 (Not sure what the numbers are the last few years) directly related to officer dissatisfaction. The states attorneys office was worried because they were losing positions. Just think about all the jobs us and the criminals create.

Something the media and the average citizen never realizes or acknowledges is just how much our customers enjoy being criminals. They are ignorant and unemployable. Being a thug a gang member killer rapist whatever their bent they love it! Carrying guns beating and terrorizing their neighbors it's exciting to them , and we used to try and catch them. We cared more about it than anybody else except for some ASA's I have known who cared as much. Everyone is saying stop, so please do so.

When they keep being robbers and we stop being cops things could slide pretty quickly. The media and the phony preachers and the criminals will be happy and we will collect a check and move on and out and leave them with the hell they have created. Have a safe tour.

Re. Cuba + Extradition

Cop killer JOANNE CHESIMARD, aka ASSATA SHAKUR (F/1) escaped from a NJ prison with the help of the Black Liberation Army (BLA) after her conviction for murdering NJ State Trooper Werner Foerster.. She was also "the Soul" of the BLA who were responsible for the double assassinations of four NYPD officers: Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones in Harlem and shortly thereafter, Gregory Foster and Rocco Laurie on the Lower East Side. The BLA was an offshoot of the Black Panther Party.

Under Castro, she fled to Havana and despite a $2,000,000 reward, we can't touch the bitch. The BLA execution targets were BLUE. The NYPD victims in both doubles were black and white partners.

"Protective Pat Down of the person, there must be reasonable suspicion of criminal activity and reasonable suspicion that the person is armed and dangerous or presents a danger of attack."

Now they're just adding their own perimeters. There's no state or federal law that says that. If someone has a weapon while I'm interacting with them, I'm going to take possession of it regardless of what they say their intended use of it is. 

So now it's not enough that the person is armed, but I also have to articulate why they're dangerous? "Sir, I have to ask. Do you plan on using this knife in your pocket for anything dangerous?" "Nope. Just goin sit out here and whittle a stick."

12/21/2015 08:57:00 AM

That's been the rule all along. You can't just walk up to someoneand start patting them down. You need to be able to articulate why you believed there was a pat down. It is our constitutional right. You are just programmed with the chicago way. And if you saw a knife on someone you are interacting with you can take temporary custody of it. No one added anything, you were just ignorant of the law. Stay fetal.

My advice that I would personally adhere to is this: Complete this new version of contact card only when engaging someone as a result of an OEMC call. Whether that be a suspicious person, arrest on signed complaints, etc. I would not advise proactively stopping people. I understand that reasonable suspicion and/or probable cause will exist but the ACLU, media, civil rights attorneys and liberals will not. Please keep that in mind.

Don't be surprised when officers are summarily fired in 2017 when they find they had no activity in 2016. They've done it other places. They will do it here.

I wonder what the percentage drop off in streets stops, traffic stops and even arrests will be? How much of an increased in property crime and violent crime will we see? We should track the statistical difference.

My guess is the following: we will see a 75% decrease in street stops, t-stops. A 50% drop off on arrests. Property crime increases by 10% and violent crime goes up by 15%. But once the bad guys figure out the police are handcuffed then every year will see really explosive year over year growth in property and violent crime rates. However, the department and politicians will surely disguise it via compstat or some other named model to disguise the actual truth.

People when you do your vehicle inspection check everything. If something isn't working or the brakes, suspension, steering, transmission feels unsafe. Down the car. If the camera isn't working, take one that works. Stop allowing yourself to go out in these unsafe vehicles. Make the city repair all the cheap crap they give us. Just pull an event number for not having a vehicle to go out in. We need to stop being the mayor's bitches, we need make him accountable for nonfunctional equipment.

Another sad point is that you will even have to write them out for a PARKER that you write during the 2X a year holiday seat belt mission overtime initiative. It's enforcement action. So, instead of writing a 30 second parker and sending Mr. Citizen on his way, you will have the person stopped for 20 minutes while you fill out one of these as well as the ticket. A 20 minute parker....Think about it..... That's worse than the old 'Cook County' parkers.

Time to brush up on your TO-FROMS.

You just hand it to your supervisor who probably has a masters degree and ask very legal question regarding the order.

A blank look will wash on his face and you will be instructed to read the order again.

You submit the TO-FROM and request an answer, send it to legal affairs if nobody knows.

The act creates paper that nobody can then throw you under any buses.

Or you can hide and hope you never slip up/ don/t forget that if your partner is not very bright or shakey you will also be held accountable for another adult.

Respond to your jobs, do a case report if you have to, hold yourself down and do it right. If the bad guy runs, oh well send a flash and advise warrants if he's known. Working for John Q.

Time to brush up on your English. I can't figure out what the fuck you're trying to say here, but it seems like you think you can blame your supervisor for your inability to read and understand the orders. Then it sounds like you think writing a TO/FROM to legal affairs will indemnify you of all responsibility in adhering to the orders, and result in legal affairs answering some question for you. It's like someone replaced the parts of your brain responsible for logic and grammar with banana pudding and puppy shit. Regardless of what the order says, you're still responsible for any violations of civil rights that occur while you're running around stopping people. No TO/FROM will save your dumb ass.

If they're going to accuse you of inattention to duty, might not hurt to keep a little log book of times/places you were going to stop people but in order to preserve their rights you didn't. That way it shows you're doing something. Nobody can fault you for not stopping people if you throw the order back in their face. If they weren't there, they can't judge you.

Also, be careful about using 'catch phrases' when you articulate probable cause/suspicion. That shit ain't going to fly any more.

Move your car every 10-15 minutes. Get out and do some foot patrol, you probably need the exercise anyway. Don't hit the hole, especially with the camera always rolling and GPS. Someone is going to be looking at every officer. Don't get sent to call back for inattention to duty.

" The only contact you should do these days is to tell lawful citizens to arm themselves. The police will no longer be proactive in stopping the common everyday criminal! The everyday criminal will learn to fear those who conceal carry. The police should just wait at the station until a call comes out. Depending on the situation maybe a few cars are dispatched. The rest of the officers can work out while they wait for a call others officers can make food in the mess hall until they are in the rotation. There will be sleeping quarters for those who return from the fight they had with a mental who tried to disarm them and tried biting their nose off! After some rest they can grab a bite from the mess hall and be ready for there turn in the rotation. This can be done in 24 hour shifts! This is perfect very little interaction with public and you work only about 90 days a year!"

I love the old crime movies from the 30s and 40s where the film shows the cops getting a call at HQ. The police station garage door opens with cops in cars and on motorcycles, sirens blaring and roaring out the door in response. Also the 'SWAT' TV show was a gas. The cops would sit around, tell war stories, work-out, fondle their SWAT toys and basically chill-out waiting for a SWAT call or SWAT music to play, whichever came first so that they could jump into their SWAT van and race around the city.:) LOL.

So which is it?

Let me Splain to u: If you do a traffic stop and, due to your experience and observations, decide to do a pat down, then you have to submit an Investigatory Stop Report and give the driver a receipt..

If you do a traffic stop and no pat down, you do not have to submit an Investigatory Stop Report.

If you do a street stop and NO pat down, the subject does NOT get a receipt (you still have to complete an Investigatory Stop Report).

If you do a street stop and DO a pat down, you complete the report and give the subject a receipt.

My advice: don't stop anyone unless you absolutely have to.

Over the years I got some good case leads off of contact cards. It is an axiom that the citizens get the police department they want. They are saying stand down.

There was a decline in arrests / prisoners back in 2011 & 12 (Not sure what the numbers are the last few years) directly related to officer dissatisfaction. The states attorneys office was worried because they were losing positions. Just think about all the jobs us and the criminals create.

Something the media and the average citizen never realizes or acknowledges is just how much our customers enjoy being criminals. They are ignorant and unemployable. Being a thug a gang member killer rapist whatever their bent they love it! Carrying guns beating and terrorizing their neighbors it's exciting to them , and we used to try and catch them. We cared more about it than anybody else except for some ASA's I have known who cared as much. Everyone is saying stop, so please do so.

When they keep being robbers and we stop being cops things could slide pretty quickly. The media and the phony preachers and the criminals will be happy and we will collect a check and move on and out and leave them with the hell they have created. Have a safe tour.

I would like to reiterate the above point that the poster made about jobs created by the law enforcement community. Ever wonder why so many vehicles are parked on a daily basis at 26th and California? Because we as police officers create the demand for public defenders, assistant states attorneys, judges, lawyers, victim assistance, and a plethora of court support staff. Thousands of employees rely on the system to keep running. When police officers slow down and stop making arrests, writing tickets, the demand for these support/parasitical services will collapse. What will follow will necessarily be layoffs, retirees' positions not being filled, and a hiring slowdown. Why do you think law firms with a reputation of suing the city have stooped to such lengths lately as combing CO numbers from years ago for fodder? They are getting desperate to feed the beast. Give them the key to their own demise. Stop all activity, do the bare minimum. The ripple effect that will come from the war on police will not be pretty. GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT!!!

How are they going to fire 5000 + coppers? You're a mush.
----------------
They won't have to fire 5000. A few dozen, maybe just a handful would make the point very effectively.

It no longer matters much who is at fault or how it got this way, but something has to change or the situation will blow up in everyone's face.

They want contact cards, well lets be up front about it. Save the money on VRI by cancelling it entirely. Give every officer 1$ per contact card. Every contact card must be backed up by a state ID. Counterfeit contact cards may result in discipline.
Crime will drop as a result of police interaction.

Hey, it's gotta work better than McCompstat's ideas...

Off Topic SCC please forgive us, important info concerning allegations of misconduct:

The have been several complaints of documented cheating and compromising of classified information regarding the recent Lt’s Examination. The Department of Justice has been informed and an investigation will search for patterns of unconstitutional policing practices throughout the police force. The officers involved should be held accountable! If the department tries to rush a promotion of these suspects from the new list, all participants from the old list will be part of the upcoming lawsuit.

Hopefully the CPD will be proactive and avoid another negative media press release by holding off promotions from the new list until the investigation is completed. Time for the DOJ to put an end to this “blue” wall of merit aka cheaters, corruption and silence.

I am one of those young guys and all I wanted was to be was "da police" running and gunning, but I now see that the system doesn't have our backs! Without that you might has well be a vigilante! This idiot doesn't realize that it's not about being smart, but sticking together as a department, as a family! Unfortunately like one retired officer posted earlier this department will never do that, nor has it ever! Too many individualistic and selfish officers on the job.


EXCELLENT Perspective, young one.
When I was new, I too was a run & gunner. Did tact, units, the whole 9.
Luckily, I came on in the early 90's...when we could still police aggressively.
Hell, there was even a term then "AGGRESSIVE PATROL. (Does it still exist?)
Now, as I sit here, an old grizzled vet, in this POLICE HATER climate, aint no way I'd do anything above the minimum. And that's exactly what I advise young PO's.
It aint about being a "dog ass". It's about being aware of what you're facing as a 2000's police officer.
Please know that Society, Rahm, and the Feds will fuck you deep, with no lube, if you give them half a chance.

Ok big deal. Smart officers will adapt while the laggards who are the most vocal will complain, complain and complain. In my district the losers always gather at the picnic table and complain about every thing while the workers are busy doing some police work.

GET OFF the blog, BOSS!

You think the DOJ is totally powerless to deal with your slowdown. They have done this in several large cities already. They've been doing it since 1996. If you have any sense, you will realize that you are no longer protected by a CBA. The DOJ is your employer now and will be your employer for the next 20 years.

Don't be surprised when officers are summarily fired in 2017 when they find they had no activity in 2016. They've done it other places. They will do it here.

Go ahead and sue in Cook County. Even if a judge gives you your job back, the Federal Judge overseeing this takeover will tell you to go to hell.

Most of you have no idea of the new world you are entering.

Bullshit boss. We are the largest department pd the doj ever had to investigate. Try your scare tactics somewhere else, you goof. Required activity/quotas is against state law, and last time I checked there isn't a federal law on policing quotas. You're a moron. You obviously have no idea what world you're going to be supervising in. The only way doj "takes over" is by decent decree, which would be around our contract time. You're a chicken little sky is falling goof.

Really now.......well how about the four plus year investigation which the DOJ ran on the LAPD. The LAPD and its Officers did not fare very well

After talking with an attorney I now realize that police officers have no privacy.

The audio systems that the activists and the City are forcing on us will not only pick up conversations with citizens we interact with but also private conversations that we have with our fellow employees. When we vent about an individual that we had contact with afterwards, in the privacy of our vehicle, that conversation will be recorded. If any deems that our conversation was inappropriate, even though it was private, we are opening ourselves up to discipline.

If we are having marital problems and our spouse hires an attorney that attorney can review conversations between partners after filing an FOIA request.

Also, I can see trial lawyers listening to hundred of hours of our private conversations hoping to find an inappropriate comment to utilize to further their claims. They will then demand that the City pay them for listening to these conversations.

What will Ralph Price, FOP and the City do to protect our privacy?

Nothing I fear!

THAT, my friends is why my partner and I purchased the Rosetta Stone Language tapes months ago and now we both speak fluent Gaelic. All our conversations in the car are in Gaelic. These lawyers will NEVER figure that language out! Siobanne is pronounced Sha-Von. Take THAT Northwestern Innocence Project! Ha, ha, ha, or as we say in Gaelic... qne, qne, qne

he most shocking part, is that if you submit a contact card that does not show proper PC for the stop, THE SUPERVISOR IS TO FORWARD THE CARD TO IAD/IPRA.....


Phantom wordage. Didn't see that anywhere in the order. IAD has review of the reports anyway.

The other problems with this is the fact that search and siezure is probably the most SCOTUS scrutinized and debated police activity there is. It is assinine for this order to be released without any discussion of the cases cited by Legal Affairs.

As for the sergeants that are going to be reviewind and approving these reports: What training/instruction from Legal Affairs are they getting? What makes them constitutional law experts?

You are still allowed to talk to someone on the street. If he walks away....oh well.

If you really want to F with them, you would have gone on-line and learned Klingon. Would sound like static. The tech would be going crazy trying to run down the "short circuit" in the wiring..ha ha.

The original post is INCORRECT...this is why people do poorly on promotional tests...they can't read. The order says, "Forward the completed Investigatory Stop Report Deficiency Notification to the Commanding Officer of the Integrity Section, Crime Control Strategies." That is not IAD or IPRA.

It is interesting to note, however, that no such Integrity Section exists as of the issuance of this General Order. I guess the Integrity Section will magically appear when the order becomes effective.

They aren't going to say a damn thing. The original poster has to be a boss who is terrified because he's worried about the numbers. The bosses are going to be the most fucked. Regular patrol just has to wait it out, no big deal. Doj might come up with new orders or training patrol has to do or implement. That's it. Crime is going to go up and it is going to directly effect the bosses. There is nothing stating police be pro active, just do your job. Many department already went through this. I'm interested to see if doj while push CPD for consent decree. I don't see them having enough for it, but you never know. No p o has been fired or laid off by the doj for doing their job. The doj are only looking at a few excessive force beefs. They are here looking at policy and training. Anyone can look up what departments have been investigated. Might take some time, but who cares. Answer calls and be safe. Let the political apt bosses sweat. It's going to be fun to see. I can't wait to see what happens when bosses threaten p/os with changing partners, denying time due, screw with start times, etc.... For no pro active activity. They are fucked
