Contact Card vs ISR

We know that a lot of readers here aren't the police...or they're retired. They have little idea why the new "Investigatory Stop Report" is provoking such a level of discontent among the rank and file. Here's the main reason.

Exhibit A - the Contact Card:


Simple enough - two-sided, maybe 3" by 5" big, a little over a dozen lines of info requested, some optional, some not, serial numbered in the upper left for easy tracking. Simple.

Exhibit B - the Investigatory Stop Report:


Holy crap - 9" by 11" huge, easily double the amount of information wanted and....what's that? Oh, that's only side one?


And that's only the paper version. You're supposed to do it electronically, but if the PDT is down, you need a supervisor's permission to do paper, then you have to go into the station once the system is back up and enter it into the electronic version. BOTH copies will be submitted to a supervisor who will ensure the paper matches the electronic version, and both will be signed, submitted and saved for eternity.

You also have to give receipts under circumstances that are pretty unclear at this point and the information forthcoming is conflicting. This whole system is being rolled out with ZERO training aside from a video. The classroom portion of this isn't even scheduled to begin until March.

And if you make errors.....Whoa Nellie. The sergeant is required to kick it back and prepare a separate report for each rejection outlining corrective action. And the ACLU is getting every single copy of the card - your submission, the sergeant rejection, your corrected version, and the final version, all to be subjected to a rigorous examination by the ACLU lawyers.

Little wonder activity has dropped off by extraordinary amounts.

What the ISR is is the Commie Democrats telling you, the police, that they do not in any way, shape of form trust you. They believe that all are rights-abusing racist in everything you do.

Who is the moron that passed this? Is it a statute? Or some no-sue deal?

This will be a disaster this summer. No one will really need CCL because no one is going to get stopped and searched. The AHs will be able to walk thru the ghetto with their guns with nothing to worry about losing them on a street stop.

I say the 500 homicide mark gets passed by 1 October.

Thanks for the visual SCC. Now I have a fuller understanding of the ISR. At this point all I can say is that this bit of ill thought out nonsense is going to hurt anyone and everyone. Your explaination of the complete submission of ALL copies of the ISR reinforces the idea that its intent is to harm PO's and supervisors alike.
The take away from all of this is: police will be targeted for EVERY action they take right OR wrong, intentional or not, and the submission of even a single ISR could spell disaster for a police officer.
Many have gone propassive in their daily tours but from what I read here many more still need to.
The old days are gone and will never return. Please, my brothers and sisters in blue, remember who depends on you and act accordingly. STAY FETAL!!! Don't let anyone win a ghetto lottery at your expense. God bless you all.

I've been stopping people, sometimes dozens a day for the past 19 years and have not completed a single contact card. Still to this day no beefs, no complaints about it etc... Folks, this is no different than what you were doing... You're getting way too hung up on the aclu stuff... Guess what, the alcu and civil attornies have been foia our contact cards, arrests and TRR reports every single week for the past 9 years.. Yes, every week for the past nine years they have people who file the foia for all of that to look for lawsuits. That's how civil attornies sniff out cases.. They pull every single trr and review it for a case.. The same goes for every arrest report done.... This is nothing new

I used to see a suspicious person I wanted to stop. I would think about why he was suspicious, how I could approach him safely, whether this would be "the one", what bad was happening in this City and how he might be a part of it. I would think about my family and how they would survive without me if this was going to go bad.

I used to see a suspicious person. Now I don't, not with some ACLU jackal lawyer waiting to pick at my corpse.

Don't get me wrong, I still run towards gun fire, answer my calls and quell a domestic when asked. But so much of my job used to be intervening BEFORE somebody did something. It just isn't any more. For the sake of my family, it cannot be.

Only in chicago. Most other departments are still using what they were using prior to the new year and just adding whether a receipt was given. If they did modify their forms, it certainly was not to this extent. The state law only applies to receipts and those are only given when you pat down a subject upon the public way. It did not require anyone to change their forms. Chicago, as usual, screwed this up.

By pandering to the aclu and other special interest groups, they give the illusion that there was something wrong before (there wasn't) and that with the new investigative stop report they have fixed it. There was nothing to fix except the willingness for any police officer to do proactive work, that was fixed all right.

Example 1 :the old way : you see a kid walking down the street who has a youthful appearance and it Midnight. You decide to stop to ask his age. He's 15. So you fill out a curfew report and take him home.

The new way : you fill out the curfew report, An ISR report is now required, and as a policemen, you're not putting anyone in the back of your car without at least patting them down, so now you have to give Junior a receipt for the pat down before taking him home!

My question is : the law says we have to justify why we patted someone down - we have to articulate why we thought he may have had dangerous weapon before we conduct the pat down.

Does the reason "I never out anyone (including victims of crimes) in the back of my car w/0 a pat down count as a legal reason to conduct a protective pat down ?? I have no reason to suspect he's got a weapon - but I don't know that?
Any lawyers want to chime in. I'm not putting anyone in the back of my car w/o a pat down. But just wondering what the legal minds have to say. ??

And given the fact that this one looks to take WAYYYY longer to fill out could turn what was an investigative stop in accord with the US Constitution and Supreme Court "rules" into an unlawful arrest. Once you detain someone for beyond an unreasonable amount of time you have arrested them. Constructively anyway...and what once took a minute or two to complete now could take 10? 15? 30 minutes? If I had a JD (and I do) I might think about waiting a while, FOIA these, interviewing some of the "victims" and filing a big ol lawsuit (class action of course!) naming each and every one of you who detained one of my clients for an "unreasonable" amount of time as defendants!

You're right. I'm not a cop. I was, for many years, a manager. That is one incredible piece of administrative bullshit right there. Any idea how much money that little beauty is costing the city? I'll give you a rough estimate. Say its a given that every officer is administratively competent. Hell, they probably have to be. It still would take a minimum of 15 min to get that information, probably 30 min just to fill it out. Maybe 45-60 if they're uncooperative. That's 1/2 of a $32/hr salary (16$) per form. That's $5 million of the salary cost going towards filling out this form and not policing. Put another way: 5000 hours of street patrol that isn't happening because of this form. Imagine if people had to have say,,,Identification...wait for it, Outrage in 5-4-3-2-1.

I'm not a police officer, but work for a firm that is connected to the ACLU in regards to legal opinions. I personally do not like many of the ACLU's opinions pertaining to law enforcement. Now what I'm about to say is going to cause some controversy; the ACLU is in the process of trying to start a pilot program with police officers unarmed. The idea is to try to be like London Police who are unarmed. These are the words of the ACLU so don't kill the messenger. The ACLU believes it's the only way of getting the community to trust the police and to partner with other agencies demonstrating a nonlethal approach to policing. When I was told they are going forward with the planning of disarming the police in Chicago, it has given me pause and concern for the safety of all of us. Lastly, the Obama administration has been informed of the program and was requested to have input into the nonlethal approach to policing in Chicago.

Three separate narratives is absolutely ridiculous. Don't get out of the car, and whatever you do, DO NOT touch anyone or you will have to do all three. It's a joke what policing has become and the only people that are going to suffer are the people that this was allegedly created for in order to protect. They need police to get out of their cars and do some work in these areas. It's not happening and many more people will die because of it. Thank the ACLU and these two-faced coward politicians.

We are entering uncharted territory in the field of policing. No one knows where this will go, what it will bring or when. The hunters have become the hunted. The street officers, for the most part, have rightly chosen to fall back, reassess and await developments.

The bosses are scared shitless on two fronts, of how low it's going to go because of officers' fetality, and how to correctly fill out/submit/correct these ISRs because they have no training on it either.

A chill wind has swept through the police dept since January 1, paralyzing street operations, and the increase in shootings is only the beginning. Again, no one knows how high the increase will go, and what other categories of crime will also skyrocket.

And who pays? The long-suffering working tax payer. But by and large, Chicagoans are very liberal, they probably feel the police needed a check of some kind, they buy a lot of the lamestream liberal bias media puke, and the politicians are just listening to their constituents instead of doing what's right for once.

Bottom line, the liberals, the politicians, the police haters, the ACLU, McCarthy and Rahm, they own this disaster.

There is no going back either. Let us pretend for a moment that the popular mood should suddenly shift to a tough stance on crime and punishment, and the police are given free rein. 1960s style. First, will you find any police left on the job who can step up and police like that? And second, history has proven that even if you the copper have official sanction to be aggressive again, the political mood can suddenly shift 20 years later, and some liberal commie organization will start dredging up old matters on behalf of offenders who are now suddenly victims, and you the formerly aggressive officer fighting the good fight and doing what was necessary will suddenly have to answer for what is by now ancient history.

On the plus side, we still got a job... and they don't literally kick us in the nuts every day at roll call, yet.

This is crazy. It is obvious all an ISR is, is a Cover Thine Holy Ass for politicians. Each line, each check off box is something to be used to screw over the cop on the street. You know very well
BLM Potentates will dispute every entry and since the political hacks will take their side the cop is totally screwed, and the ACLU will use the original uncorrected ISR as a tool to destroy any officer they chose. What will happen when a mass murder goes down with no police because they are busy completing their ISR's, yup, you guessed it.

Retired now for two years, and it was messed up then, but what my brothers and sisters have to deal with presently is shameful. I could not believe that we have to send street stop information to the ACLU. This is the organization that have in their office the Bill of Rights hanging on the wall minus the 2nd amendment. The only option we have left is to defend ourselves with deadly force when justified. If I was told by some stupid boss to use the taser, other then using deadly force; this ex-ranger would refuse to use the taser because you expose yourself to liabilities. Thus, the use of deadly force is much more safer then using the taser. P.S. I finally convinced most family members to move out of this fuck-up state.

They big brains who run the department did something similar to the curfew report (only paper at that time) some years ago. Then wondered why enforcement dropped. And in a town where some high schools have a 50% drop out rate the police department and Board of Ed stepped away from truancy enforcement. The people running this city and the schools should be ashamed.

I am retired and maybe out of the loop of real police work as it is now but I recall filling in numerous reports depending on the incident. Stopping subjects on the street that fit the description of a flash message on a felony or other crime that just occurred was just picking up subjects or stopping vehicles at a rapid pace until we found the right ones or they made good their escape.

Seems counter productive that you have to spend more time filling out paper work on negative stops when it used to be just an apology. Towards the end of my so called career I did notice that more time was spent in the station on arrests then we used to do. We did a simple battery arrest or misdemeanor arrest in 30 minutes and were clear and back out on the street A felony arrest without ASA approval was about the same. Felony arrest with ASA approval, you were done for the day. Battery to P.O. and resisting were avoided as much as possible along with IODs. If they had to be done they were. More paper work means less time on the street means more crime on the street. ACLU and Libtards don't win. More crime means they lose. Stay fetal,

Any idea how much money that little beauty is costing the city? I'll give you a rough estimate. Say its a given that every officer is administratively competent. Hell, they probably have to be. It still would take a minimum of 15 min to get that information, probably 30 min just to fill it out. Maybe 45-60 if they're uncooperative. That's 1/2 of a $32/hr salary (16$) per form. That's $5 million of the salary cost going towards filling out this form and not policing.

And given the fact that this one looks to take WAYYYY longer to fill out could turn what was an investigative stop in accord with the US Constitution and Supreme Court "rules" into an unlawful arrest. Once you detain someone for beyond an unreasonable amount of time you have arrested them. Constructively anyway...and what once took a minute or two to complete now could take 10? 15? 30 minutes? If I had a JD (and I do) I might think about waiting a while, FOIA these, interviewing some of the "victims" and filing a big ol lawsuit (class action of course!) naming each and every one of you who detained one of my clients for an "unreasonable" amount of time as defendants! So go ahead...keep on working kids! Thanks for the clients!!

I'm not a police officer, but work for a firm that is connected to the ACLU in regards to legal opinions. I personally do not like many of the ACLU's opinions pertaining to law enforcement. Now what I'm about to say is going to cause some controversy; the ACLU is in the process of trying to start a pilot program with police officers unarmed. The idea is to try to be like London Police who are unarmed. These are the words of the ACLU so don't kill the messenger. The ACLU believes it's the only way of getting the community to trust the police and to partner with other agencies demonstrating a nonlethal approach to policing. When I was told they are going forward with the planning of disarming the police in Chicago, it has given me pause and concern for the safety of all of us. Lastly, the Obama administration has been informed of the program and was requested to have input into the nonlethal approach to policing in Chicago.

Example 1 :the old way : you see a kid walking down the street who has a youthful appearance and it Midnight. You decide to stop to ask his age. He's 15. So you fill out a curfew report and take him home.

The new way : you fill out the curfew report, An ISR report is now required, and as a policemen, you're not putting anyone in the back of your car without at least patting them down, so now you have to give Junior a receipt for the pat down before taking him home!

My question is : the law says we have to justify why we patted someone down - we have to articulate why we thought he may have had dangerous weapon before we conduct the pat down.

Does the reason "I never out anyone (including victims of crimes) in the back of my car w/0 a pat down count as a legal reason to conduct a protective pat down ?? I have no reason to suspect he's got a weapon - but I don't know that?
Any lawyers want to chime in. I'm not putting anyone in the back of my car w/o a pat down. But just wondering what the legal minds have to say. ??
_________________________________________________________________________________________

actually a violation of curfew would allow you to perform a custodial search on the juvenile before putting them in the back of your car. the juvie would be in violation of the mcc for curfew, and they are in your custody until a parent is found. it's the same as for a drinker or pisser, no patdown needed, just a custodial search. the isr does not ask if you did a custodial search, just asks if you did a patdown for weapons.

Don't let any boss or supervisor just tell you that this is just a longer version of something you did before and we are just articulating it better. It is to an extent but it is designed to be "more easily used against you" down the line in either a criminal or civil proceeding. There are more items put into these forms creating a greater chance for error on your part so when you are on trial they have more things to point to and use against you.

You have all been warned.

Wow, it doesn't surprise me. I lived in London and recall the coppers being unarmed. They don't have the violent element we have in Chicago and other American urban environments. For one, Brits are smaller and the bar fights are actually comical. There's a lot of yelling and shoving, maybe wrestling or the occasional battery, but they don't have the volume of violent people. Of course, I can't say what that is because the truth isn't well-received. Anyways, not to mention they've been purged of guns. Imagine if the U.S. Didn't step in during WWII. They'd be sprechen sie deutsch like a mofo. America is lucky for our land seperation from border conflicts that most other countries are subjected to. However, with modern travel, international terrorist can rather easily enjoy freedom of movement, assisted by Obama's immigration policies. The U.K. has a similar problem, by way of their EU partners, namely Germany, but also Greece and Italy.

So now U.K. Police have expanded firearms training and carry as opposed to previous years. This is no time for us to put our arms down, civilians or police. The ACLU and liberals will be the death of this country. They don't live in reality. Everything is a fantastical scenario that they have the luxury of hour/days-long deliberations when officers had a fraction of a second. The people we have here are incredibly violent.

Look, I know you have a job and it sounds like you're not the above-described liberal moron, so I say thanks for the info and seein through the bullshit. I'm not going to suggest a career change but damn, that's gotta be a difficult job.

What happens when body cameras come out. And they will inevitably be in every district. Are you going to just not do them then? All of these stops you say you do, on camera now, and no ISR or receipt? You may not have been sued yet, but u will. Stop doing anything but calls. This is not the "same old huff and puff". Coppers are getting stripped left and right. There's hundreds of them at callback. Have you ever seen the ACLU webpage? There are links all over it for citizen complaints, intended to jam up police. And to 7:59am, you've obviously never worked the street. Aside all that, THIS bothered me. Read 8:47am's comment. Now THAT, if true, is bad. We might as well leave the policing to the Guardian Angels. SCC please do a post on that subject. De-arming the police, here, would be a recipe for disaster.

They contradict each other. But who in the right mind is just going to write someone an ANOV without doing a protective pat-down. This whole ISR is redundant. Its time consuming and its making all officers think twice about being pro-active. Crime will sky rocket, but on the plus side CR's will be down because no one will be doing anything to interfere with these free roaming felons.

And Rahm continues to laugh up his sleeve about the
imperial screw-job he's giving CPD and the tax payers
by acting like a petulant child and refusing to hire?

Just wait until the annual warm weather kill-a-thon
Chicago is famous for...

You got half a district down on these God-Forsaken things
and you have the usual native populations of shit-birds doing
the fool...

You also have roving scouts from the armed wing of
the catered-to-constituency fleeing their "over-policed"
tribal lands and popping up where the Police aren't...

Well... You know the rest.

Perhaps the neighborhoods robbed of their Police presence
by Rahm should turn mean and angry like back in the 1950's
and 60's?

Every unfamiliar m/fer caught shaking a door, trying a window
or orbiting the same block "looking for my friend, Joe..." should
perhaps be "profiled" by members of a concerned citizenry group?

Just call the Police from a burner phone as to where the
pick-up can be made...

We personally have no problem with good people
protecting themselves from outrages facilitated by
enabling organizations like the ACLU and the current
crop of gold star cowards beholden to elected officialdom.

Political Control...

That is why you will never see a competent CPD Superintendent
with full control of the department budget, hiring and training and
the independence to run the department without interference from
City Hall.

Why... Next thing you know, the Cops will be having free rein
to go after people like elected officials, news reporters and
others such when they run afoul of the law...

No amount of mayoral underling phone calls to save a dirty ass.
No retaliation against a Cop for doing his job.

Oh well...
As it is, City Hall ceded control of CPD to the ACLU...

This experiment promises to be really interesting.

agreed......left the state with other family members; there's only one more left, and that person should be out of there within a year or so....

Glad to hear that you would never put anyone into the back of your car that has not had at least a pat down.

I didn't want to do any of these, but had a disturbance call that turned into an arrest. We had to do one. Took 15 minutes but I'm wondering how you can get out of it in an arrest situation? Never planned on doing one, but was ordered to by a sgt on scene.

Well, I have a solution. It's the same solution when they started the contact card program way back when... Just continue to stop people and don't do them... Simple. I've been stopping people, sometimes dozens a day for the past 19 years and have not completed a single contact card. Still to this day no beefs, no complaints about it etc... Folks, this is no different than what you were doing... You're getting way too hung up on the aclu stuff... Guess what, the alcu and civil attornies have been foia our contact cards, arrests and TRR reports every single week for the past 9 years.. Yes, every week for the past nine years they have people who file the foia for all of that to look for lawsuits. That's how civil attornies sniff out cases.. They pull every single trr and review it for a case.. The same goes for every arrest report done.... This is nothing new

1/13/2016 05:28:00 AM

These forms are required by state law every time you stop someone. Contact cards were not. You are now breaking the law if you do not do it.

Eastbound Skyway shut down due to car-to-car shooting. Driver killed, apparently one other injured.

This s__t getting more spectacular, having greater effects upon public and thus harder to ignore...

...and the police are not going to get blamed for it and have it stick among ordinary citizens, either -- just by the usual subjects, revs like Sharpton who owe $5 mil in back taxes and are still criss-crossing the country on jets, headed anywhere trouble may be stirred up among the bullhorners and the blm crowd...

"Little bit of a frustrating start to the year," says DeEscalante. He mentions lack of co-operation from victims and witnesses, giving out with no info or false info. Also says that ofc. are very uncertain of how to proceed on almost anything anymore...after working through that unbelievable time-wasting stinker of an ISR, you can see why. What did someone say here? Time wasted while held down puzzling over these and submitting and re-submitting them will soak up at least 5000 hours of what used to be effective street patrol...

...and on top of that, the mutts yelling "Where was you at?"

Police hunt 400-pound bearded female stabber

Unusual fugitive: San Diego police in hot pursuit of an obese, hairy woman who stabbed a man in the neck

12/25/2015, 11:45 AM

"San Diego police on late Thursday night were embroiled in an all out search to try and locate an obese woman, who weighs around 400 pounds (over 180 kilograms), and sports a fashionable beard.

"She is suspected of stabbing a man on Wednesday night at 7:40 p.m. local time, in the city's East Village neigborhood...the victim, a 39-year-old whose identity has not been published, approached a group of people asking for a cigarette.

"At that moment, the obese bearded woman tottered up to him [and] stabbed the man on the left side of his neck, before fleeing the scene as fast as a 400-pound person humanly can.

"The stunned victim was evacuated to a local hospital and given medical treatment for his non-life-threatening wounds.

"Police describe the attacker they are searching for as a white woman around 400 pounds in weight, wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. The officers then took the pains to incredulously note she is "with a beard."

Back in the day a contact card was a great investigative tool usually filed out when some one was kinky and perhaps somewhere he shouldn't be for no reason. You had no grounds for a pinch, so you filed out a contact card, it went into a file and when the dicks had a case in the area with no known's they look through the file, and sometimes came up with a good pinch, same for the tact guys(until drinking on the public was became a tact pinch). Then some idiot came up with the idea of them being activity(someone who never did one and had no idea what they were for I may add) Thus a great tool was ruined and its bastard child is this form that THE ACLU has access to?? DO NOT DO THEM IF YOU HAVE A BRAIN IN YOUR HEAD THE ACLU IS NOT YOUR FRIEND neither is the idiot who wants you to fill them out

There is a huge difference between London and Chicago. In Chicago, street gangs control the street and are heavily armed by the Sinola Cartel. Not true for London. Firearms are not common in London. Two completely different cities and countries. How can anyone of rationale thought have officers without firearms in a city with a horrible violent crime rate? This will be the line that forces officers to take a hard stand and say no.

Don't worry so much about the order, comply with the law. These two.

(720 ILCS 5/33-3) (from Ch. 38, par. 33-3)
Sec. 33-3. Official misconduct.
(a) A public officer or employee or special government agent commits misconduct when, in his official capacity or capacity as a special government agent, he or she commits any of the following acts:
(1) Intentionally or recklessly fails to perform any
mandatory duty as required by law; or
(2) Knowingly performs an act which he knows he is
forbidden by law to perform; or
(3) With intent to obtain a personal advantage for
himself or another, he performs an act in excess of his lawful authority; or
(4) Solicits or knowingly accepts for the performance
of any act a fee or reward which he knows is not authorized by law.
(b) An employee of a law enforcement agency commits misconduct when he or she knowingly uses or communicates, directly or indirectly, information acquired in the course of employment, with the intent to obstruct, impede, or prevent the investigation, apprehension, or prosecution of any criminal offense or person. Nothing in this subsection (b) shall be construed to impose liability for communicating to a confidential resource, who is participating or aiding law enforcement, in an ongoing investigation.
(c) A public officer or employee or special government agent convicted of violating any provision of this Section forfeits his or her office or employment or position as a special government agent. In addition, he or she commits a Class 3 felony.
(d) For purposes of this Section, "special government agent" has the meaning ascribed to it in subsection (l) of Section 4A-101 of the Illinois Governmental Ethics Act.
(Source: P.A. 98-867, eff. 1-1-15.)

(725 ILCS 5/107-14) (from Ch. 38, par. 107-14)
Sec. 107-14. Temporary questioning without arrest.
(a) A peace officer, after having identified himself as a peace officer, may stop any person in a public place for a reasonable period of time when the officer reasonably infers from the circumstances that the person is committing, is about to commit or has committed an offense as defined in Section 102-15 of this Code, and may demand the name and address of the person and an explanation of his actions. Such detention and temporary questioning will be conducted in the vicinity of where the person was stopped.
(b) Upon completion of any stop under subsection (a) involving a frisk or search, and unless impractical, impossible, or under exigent circumstances, the officer shall provide the person with a stop receipt which provides the reason for the stop and contains the officer's name and badge number. This subsection (b) does not apply to searches or inspections for compliance with the Fish and Aquatic Life Code, the Wildlife Code, the Herptiles-Herps Act, or searches or inspections for routine security screenings at facilities or events. For the purposes of this subsection (b), "badge" means an officer's department issued identification number associated with his or her position as a police officer with that department.

Yes this report is ridiculous. However, we have to admit, we are partially responsible. Did you read some of the cards that ACLU had access to? Stops with either no reasonable suspicion or not articulated in narrative. Also, clearly some officers don't know or care about the limitations of a Terry stop and rules regarding Pat downs. You cant jump out of a car, grab someone and go through their pockets. This kind of shit has a direct impact on the crap we are going through now. If we are going to call out the shady politicians, suspect 'activists' and bird brains coming up with some of this stuff, we MUST acknowledge some of our brothers/sisters in blue are to blame for this as well.

THIS IS SCARY...VERY SCARY. I can see the likes of the ACLU trying something like this. Especially in this Presidential administration. If this is even mentioned in public, somebody has to stand up and say "enough is enough".

Old Retired Guy Here Again......! Can You Still Fold This Up And Write Your Beat Number On It, and Use It For A Beat Tag ? Other Than That, I Cannot Ever Envision Filling One Out. Well,Hold On. Maybe,If You Have A Prisoner's Detail. Nothing To Due, No Reading Material, No Nurse's To Flirt With. You Could Use Your Time To Engage In Meaningful Conversation With Your Prisoner, OR NOT !
PS: Be Safe Out There.

NEVER talk to the media to do some "feel good" shit to make this fucking city look good. Fuck them. They hate the police every last one of them. Just wait till summer when all the alderfuckers are screaming for the national guard.

Had to do a simple ANOV on a guy should have taken 10 mins tops on the stop. But in typical CPD equipment fashion PDT was slow. Name finally came back ANOV issued and we're clear right? NO. Under new silly law we had to do the ISR now. PDT was not working properly and we lost the ISR that was almost done. Now we had to go into the station and do it. By the time were done the entire stop lasted well over an hour. What a joke. Two police officers down for over an hour on a simple ANOV. Stupid! No reason for all this paper. What a mess these know it all politicians created.

Too bad there'll still be plenty of dummies lining up to do these things so they can kiss asses to get on some bullshit tact team or area gig because they're afraid of pushing a beat car. The simpletons don't realize what they're getting into.

1/13/2016 10:52:00 AM Thers a couple of ways to deal with a pile of dog shit.Some see it and avoid it.Some accidentally step in it,realize what happened and quickly try to clean it off.Then theres the guys who see it,step in it and think nothing of bringing it in the car or house,

Ass Kisses - it is what our higher-ups have become. We have morons running this department. First FOIA, now ACLU - take these case to trial. I would give the Department more credit if because of a decision, we must fill out these reports, but to settle for this shows that the bosses running the Department NEVER did not work. It takes courage to stand up, and we lack that leadership from the Superintendent to the Commanders.

The Contact Card was clear and simple. But now, why bother doing the an ISR. Instead of discretion, now I just do the arrest. Thanks to the ACLU, now I lock more people up and have more court overtime. With that pay now I can go to Hawaii and when I come back get the bathrooms redone with a one of those bathtub jacuzzis. Thanks ACLU. Best idea you ever had.

Contact card completion time on the street: Roughly 5 minutes.
ISR completion time: 45 minutes, in the station. The pdt's don't work. Signal sucks and takes forever to upload if it even uploads and you lose your report regardless.

Why are there 120 shot already this year? Cause we're all in the station doing paperwork.

If the ACLU lived in Englewood, I bet they would get rid of contact cards altogether.

Remember, this is a law that was passed and no one made any noise about, nothing nada! It showed up almost out of nowhere. Call your senators and congressmen and ask them how and why?

And given the fact that this one looks to take WAYYYY longer to fill out could turn what was an investigative stop in accord with the US Constitution and Supreme Court "rules" into an unlawful arrest. Once you detain someone for beyond an unreasonable amount of time you have arrested them. Constructively anyway...and what once took a minute or two to complete now could take 10? 15? 30 minutes? If I had a JD (and I do) I might think about waiting a while, FOIA these, interviewing some of the "victims" and filing a big ol lawsuit (class action of course!) naming each and every one of you who detained one of my clients for an "unreasonable" amount of time as defendants! So go ahead...keep on working kids! Thanks for the clients!!

And who said anyone was being detained for an unreasonable amount of time? People aren't being detained while the entire ISR is completed. I guess it's a good thing for you that getting a JD doesn't require common sense. Now go chase some ambulances, shitdick.

We have all of this going on and then to see the 009 district take pictures with Rham!? and smiling!? He wants to take our lives, liberty and money away from us and our families. There's nothing to smile about or be taking pictures with. I'm glad DNAinfo had the picture. Much disappointment.
