Manpower Shortage Worsens

  • A man who embarrassed Chicago police when he posed as an officer at age 14 pleaded guilty Tuesday to his third charge of impersonating an officer and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

    Vincent Richardson, 22, pleaded guilty to a felony count of impersonating a police officer.

    He was arrested in May 2015 after police pulled over the sport utility vehicle he was driving and found him wearing a "police-style" bulletproof vest and a "replica firearm" in his waistband, according to an arrest report.
Supposedly, this was the only guy doing ISR's in 003. Five or six a night.

Are they still pretending he didn't check out a squad car and drive around for a few hours?

This guy should've been on the tact team years ago!!! So here's a question....he's only two years away from a working day furlough. Does his incarceration affect his time?!?!?!! Ha

I'm more interested in knowing who this kid drive around with all night that couldn't figure out he wasn't the police. Working with a person you've never met before, I'm sure you'd ask a few questions about their life and time on the job. The alarm never sounded that something was amiss?

When he gets out, he might be one of the few applicants the CPD gets.

Now he can't apply to be in CPD with a felony.

Too bad. He could have at least made Sergeant with all his energy.

I will let him take my stack calls at the beginning of my shift, there is a documentary on YouTube I want to watch--- working a shithole, when I get home I see to fall right asleep a 1/4 of the way through.

Shit he is more motivated then 80% of us, let him have it. He can join the VIR hair jell crew and lock up one baggers of weed for decades. This department only wants pimpy police work from the troops.

With the Aldercreatures wanting the dumbing down of the Department with the new test coming, he may be number one on the new list !!!!

Kinda sad this chump gets jammed up with all kinds of felony convictions yet hardened criminals rarely get convicted or do time. This foo boo is easy picking. I'd be more impressed with arrests and convictions or robbers, rapists and burglars.

Rahm has to put the 2,000
Police Officers back in the budget for 2017
Reassign captains from district patrol to areas , have them work 12 hour shifts and be staffed 24/7
Captains would be in charge of street operations in all districts , not this bs administrative bs , mandatory wearing of body cameras and GPS available on line like the snow plows to see where the captains are patrolling
This would be a good program for our new superintendent to start
He seems like a street copper so why pay captains $140,000 a year to hide in a district
Captains are needed on the street

The manpower is at a dangerous level. If they want morale to improve start with manpower so we could get some help and time off.

The first question I would have asked him once he got into my squad was, "Hey Bro, where's your pistol?" Hahaha Kinda hard not to have noticed that, ya think?

At least the kid has some kind of work ethic.

The discovery at the end of WWII of Hitler's "secret weapons" recalls
the story of when General Rommel met with Hitler during the Allied
invasion of France...the German lines were buckling and Rommel
wanted more divisions...when Hitler raged that. "I have secret weapons that will soon destroy them," Rommel bluntly replied, "But what do I do tomorrow morning?"....it may be how the Chicago police feel when told there are social plans for addressing the problems in our south & west side ghettos..."But we have to control them right here and now, and it's not always politically correct!"

This kids a go getter alright. Was consistently signing complaints when he was working 'licka-stow' security just a few months back. Hell, give him an old crown vic and a radio. He'll generate those precious ISRs for the Lieus.

Not on the street, out them as watch commanders as they should be. If the commanders are that overworked with the office staffs they have then you get one administrative sergeant to oversee the office .
