Again with the OT, Manpower

  • The Chicago Police Department spent a record $116.1 million on overtime in 2015 — up 17.2 percent from the previous year — to mask a manpower shortage that has mushroomed under Mayor Rahm Emanuel, with police retirements outpacing hiring by 975 officers.

    “Overtime is totally out of control. Arrests are down. Stops are down. Crime is up. All we’re doing is paying people to do nothing,” said Ald. Anthony Beale (9th), former chairman of the City Council’s Police Committee.
Golly, Mr. Beale - we could say the same thing about 25 aldercreatures, their fully funded pensions and their $1 million slush funds. And you aren't paying them to do nothing - you're paying them for their service based on a negotiated Contract. Asshat.
  • “If we’re not getting the bang for the buck, we need to stop paying overtime and do the resources allocation I’ve been talking about for years” by reassigning officers to districts where crime is highest, Beale said.
Which of course mean, "Take all the police out of the high-tax/low-crime areas and put them in the out-of-control/low-tax/subsidized/high crime/Thunderdome areas."

This has many benefits. Criminals will be "over-policed" in their home territory, so crime might go down. The whiny "gibmedats" will be busy filming every police interaction in the hopes of winning a large payout from the overly restricted actions of the police - cops will stop working, meaning crime might go up (unless the ACLU declares it won't). No police in the quiet areas, so crime will rise there as criminals discover all the cops are in the ghetto and the quiet areas tend to have nicer shit to steal. And the liberal areas can bask in the social justice warrior glow of having castrated the police while bodies are rolled out of cars by the Taco Burrito King in Norwood Park.

The rest of the articel is a rehash of stuff Fran has cribbed here from our archives, CrimeinBoystown and HeyJackass along with a gratuitous shot at the Department by naming the top OT earners as if they were the ones voting on the budget and  cutting the Department numbers.

A few months back an article was written on how many black wealthy Chicago residents were leaving for Atlanta, Georgia and other parts of the south for better job opportunities and acceptance. I would like to see the race/sex breakdown of the sullied millionaires leaving the city. Media is using fear reporting tactics again.

Let's try this experiment: make 3 big districts in the city. Black, Hispanic, and white. Assign all black officers to patrol the black districts, Hispanics to their own district and whites to their own. See how that works. At minimum, I guess we could eliminate any chance of racial profiling and the white cops would not been in the black communities. On a realistic note, I thought we already assigned a heavy majority of cops to these same areas - but you didn't like the fact that cops tried to do their jobs. Bottom line these are war zones and should be treated as such. Known gang members SHOULD be stopped every time they walk down the street. But you didn't like that. Now live with what you created. How about this - if any of your children are involved in gangs - and you're on public assistance - you don't get a check. That certainly will save some tax payer $$. Quit blaming the police - start blaming your own communities.

From the scum times article


That’s when a judge ordered the city to release the video of a white Chicago Police officer pumping 16 rounds into the body of black teenager Laquan McDonald.





THIS is why stops are down. No body wants to see their name in the papers like this. NO mention of his knife. NO mention of the citizen he attacked. NO mention of the PCP. NO mention of the damage he did to police cars. NONE. Just some evil whip cracker white devil cop PUMPING bullets into a poor black boy!

As sad and ugly as his death was, maybe his death meant no one else died. Maybe killing him saved multiple people from dying by a drugged out, crazed knife wielding maniac. Maybe if the police no longer stop bad people, more other people will die. Maybe the media can stop being so one sided.

We are NOT "doing nothing" we are doing our jobs. We are following the laws that we are required to follow. We are not doing proactive street stops because they have been proven to be civil rights violations!! We are still doing a lot. We are patrolling, deterring crime and making necessary arrests, traffic stops etc. all while answering our calls!

I take umbrage to this alderman and any cop who continues to say we are doing "nothing". Please stop, you are creating a narrative that will harm all police in this Dept. Not doing proactive work that might be considered violating the law is not the same as doing nothing. This alderman cannot tell me I do nothing every day. That's an insult and shows his ignorance of what police work actually is. We cannot go back to the time of being ordered to violate others rights in order to get contact cards, now called ISR's. No thanks. I want to stay out of prison.

Why is it Beal that you never look at your very needy constituency, very needy Beal. They need extra police, ambulances, fire, housing, social services, food assistance, free education and all need jobs of course. Why is it that no one wants to hire a crack head,exconvict or a moron that has the effective grade level of a 6th grader. The only ones who hire your people's are public service CTA, Police, Fire, teachers for which they are usually not qualified and the proof there is that they need quotas and "merit" promotions to advance. They are not qualified to pass promotion tests that's why we have "merit" promotions and multiple "merit" promotions The brass likes the system because they can slip friends and relatives in with Beal's constituency. So it works. Period. Like a former Mayor used to say.

Garrrrry very strongly stated it was a deliberate CHOICE to do it with overtime, instead of hiring extra bodies. And we all know Garrry didn't make that choice without a mandate from the mayor.

She had over 3K on the books when she left Harrison and went to HQ with less than 10 years otj. Do the math. Even with the 45 mins a day and caps meetings and holidays etc there is NO WAY IN HELL some one that never went to court could rack up that amount of hours in 10 years.

Beale is just a willfully ignorant wag-tongue
without a functioning brain to keep it in check.

This fool is the son of a Policeman and he's
been grinding a largish axe regarding Police
pay and benefits for many years.

He was trying to start some shit about our
duty availability pay (which was implemented
in lieu of a pay raise and a dodge against
being pensionable) by running agit-prop against
it in the news rags, labeling it as "funny money"
and other derogatory names to infer that the
"greedy cops" are getting some kind of unearned/
undeserved benefit/compensation.

Beale whines about our pay/benefits like he feels
his Daddy stiffed him on his allowance as a kid.

"I'll get my revenge for you shitting on my allowance, DADDY!"

Everything out of his unsecured, flapping cock holster
is pure shit talk in addition to being spiteful, malicious and
unproductive.

"We're paying people to do nothing..."

Nary a mirror in YOUR house, eh?
Hypocrite muthafuckah...

Hoping some of your out-of-control
constituents chase YOU down and
and devour you ass first...

Naw! The Police are doing
"Nothing" according to you, so

Everyone in areas that police could possibly be reassigned from should be in hysterics. Crime is already out of control in every neighborhood. Let's see: burglaries and robberies out of control in areas such as 001/018/ 019, a 51 year old while employed gets killed by a bullet shot through the business window near Addison/Pulaski, a 17 year old shot and killed and dumped out of his vehicle that was then stolen near Harlem/Higgins and so on and so forth. Disgusting. Just the mere thought that there are areas in need of less police service is preposterous. I suggest preemptive calls to the aldermen and such beginning now. The ghetto has more police service than the residents want and there is talk of adding more? Maybe I am looking at this all wrong. Maybe the idea is to leave areas unprotected so certain aldermen can enable their constituents to rape, rob, beat, kill and pillage. I hope not.

The Freedom of Information Act response obtained by DNAinfo Chicago confirmed that Williams in his role as "senior subject matter expert was the final reviewer for the Chicago Police Department of potential exam content for the most recent sergeant and lieutenant promotional exams before they were administered."

VRI is working. They saturate an area with police cars on most blocks and there's no calls for service and no one getting shot. That's what it was intended to do. Reduce crime in those areas. High visible patrol works.

I thought everything was coming up roses in Chicago. After all, the ACLU said there was no correlation between police/citizen contacts and the spiking crime rates.
Amazing how people can say incredibly stupid things and not have a clue how stupid they sound.
Do CPD Officers live in Chicago after retirement, or do They GTFO?
Stay safe Officers.

Watch out when the contract expires, look for the city to force the 10 hour day. Less police, so stay longer. I'll stay. But you better give me a hefty f**king raise.

The Contract doesn't need to expire! The DOJ has the authority to render your contract NULL & VOID! All they have to do is convince a "Federal" judge is that the disciplinary funtions (read - your right to due process) hinders the "timely administration of transparency" and they can suspend the contract. They did it in L.A. after the Rodney King investigation. Google it. You will not even HAVE a contract very shortly. The ONLY thing that they cannot affect is the pay scale. EVERYTHING else (watches by seniority, etc.) cam be changed! Three months to go and I am ouuta here!

There is a lot of apathy in the high crime areas and people who collaborate with criminals often lie on the victim which causes your Officers to harass and sometimes arrest the victims of crimes. Investigating "fake" crimes probably results in Officers working a lot of overtime, too. The Alderman Beale or whoever needs to shut up and work on why they are not doing anything to stop rime in their districts.

Homicide Dick, work 3rd watch, goes to court everyday 8 hours by 5 days is 40 hours at time in a half 60 by four weeks 240 hours at say $50 and hour is $12,000 by 12 months is $144,000. Give or take furloughs and late jobs as well as VRI housing and CTA. It's not for everyone but there's a few and good for them some of the best Dicks out there. Don't be a hater.

Yeah wasn't this a similar related topic to the teenager being found dead in 016 couple days ago? I've said it before and I'll say it again. I don't know why the heavily taxed burdened citizens who actually appreciate cops put up with scarce police serivces so that they can allocate the majority of the force to the south and west sides where they hate and mf police.

This guy doesn't understand that this has been the CPD strategy for a few years now and it doesn't seem to be doing jack sh*t to solve the problem of ghetto violence. Again it must be the cops that are to blame. What else can you say about a city that allows a CPS educator to publicly say 'F the police' without suffering any consequences. You good citizens that know the truth better get organized before we slowly evolve into a ghetto accepted state. They're shoving it down your throats and every time you have a different opinion you're labeled a racist.

Enough is enough we need some damn advocacy ....

OT:
DNA Info and WBBM radio have a story about Eddie Johnson, and his fiancé new very high scoring Lt. Nakia Fenner.
It's alleged that Gene Williams had a special study group for a select few African American female Sgt.'s who worked at HQ... Nakia being one of them and Al Wysinger's wife being another.
Gene Williams is considered a subject matter expert and apparently he's such a great teacher that these few, select students did exceptionally well on the Lt.'s test.... in fact Wysinger's wife scored #1. Imagine that.
They all made Lt. in the very first class.

In the DNA Info story both Eddie and his fiancé Nakia made contradicting statements. Eddie said he didn't know anything about these secret study groups led by his buddy Gene Williams but he did say Nakia attended several study groups.
Nakia says she didn't attend any study groups.
Something is rotten in Denmark.

The department tried fucking with Tim Walter a few times
because he is a legit and skilled heavy DUI writer...

If you know anything about writing DUIs, people will fight
catching a conviction for YEARS if they have the means.

We had a guy fight for more than five years.
His lawyer was playing games with continuances
assorted other trickbaggery to induce a dismissal/
deviation.

He even approached in the hall almost crying and
begging us to be "understanding" and throw the case.

Fuck him then and fuck him now, where ever he may be.

The heavy DUI writers know who's legit and who's
on bullshit.

Big Tim is legit.
Frannie Speilman is intentionally pissing up the wrong tree.

Hey Fran!
Why don'tcha rifle through the alder-goofs
panty drawer and lay their skivvies out
sunny-side up?

Or chafe Rahm's narrow ass about running
CPD on the cheap and incurring such "obscene"
overtime bills because Rahm is fixated on
"sticking it in the cops ear" as a pillar of his
Public Safety policy.

You high tax payers in 001, 018, 016, 017 etc.,
should be on alder-poot-butt Beale's ass because
all he's talking about is stealing more of YOUR
paid for Police presence and gifting it to his
constituents because they're a half step from
public cannibalism/lighting each other on fire
with petrol soaked car tires.

They're afraid the Police will just aim their
body and car cameras at the spectacle for
all the world to actually see how vicious,
cruel and barbaric the streets of Chicago
actually are.

Keep on with that "The Police are the Problem" bullshit.
More are seeing and understanding that it isn't so...

Haven't read the article, but if Walters is at issue, I can say I have never seen a guy who uses every second of his time doing police work like Walters. He doesn't lounge around, he doesn't lean and chat. He works. And nobody knows DUI like he does.
I'm retired now, but I've signed a lot of o.t. slips for him and never had a qualm about it. My only complaint is I wish we had ten more like him.




T-Dubs is the best. Back you up if you call for an assist, give you guidance if you had a question (especially DUI stuff), and knows 501's inside and out. His OT is all court and tour extensions, not VRI or CTA/CHA. Up yours, sun times.

Actually they get a lot of OT. They get OT for all the new hire power tests which are on weekends. Those are usually 8hr days and have a decent amount a year. They also get tons of days off cancelled for all of the summer festivals, special events and parades. Trust me, there is a lot of OT at the academy.

Actually, VRI does work. Unfortunately, the hours are never adjusted properly to combat day time shootings nor are the boxes moved enough. The areas where VRI has been since it's inception it has been working. Look at 002 (55-59 King to State), 003 (61 to 65 Calumet to St Lawrence) & (65 to 68 Greenwood to St Lawrence) and 004 (75 to 79 Yates to Coles) as examples. That and McCarthy got upset when people were actually doing work at VRI (TVB's and arrest). He wanted you out there all 8 hours, not in the station for anything. The problem is that 007 and 011 are just absolute war zones and to a certain extent, 009 and 015.

I agree, VRI will never be as effective as SOS, TRU, MSF etc. But to simply write of VRI as in effective is untrue, unless you actually look at the numbers.

What I would personally do is have only 50 or so officers working VRI from Tuesday-Thursday in the worst possible areas. Through Friday-Monday have 200+ officers working VRI along with canceling days off for units + tact. It is indeed a band aid but it would probably be your most effective use of your current resources. Also give officers the option of working a few hours after their tours in "violent prone zones."

But you know... that's just me thinking aloud.
