More Visits?

Anyone care to confirm this one?
  • Did you know that the district commanders were ordered to go and visit the mother of a slain individual in their respective districts on Mother's Day weekend? 100% true. They were basically supposed to tell them how sorry they are for their loss. What the hell has become if this department????
So now the Commanders have to warn the little scamps if they're too involved with gangs and flirting with disaster, now they have to comfort the mothers of the dead if junior manages to catch lead?

If true, we certainly hoped they screened the "victims" and ran their IR Numbers, criminal histories and those of Mom, too.

This is sick. If a perfect stranger (Commander and staff) came to my door, I would think they were thieves casing the place. Damn. A stranger at my door would only make me sad. This city (Rahm's idea probably) and CPD Brass are nuts. Bring back good sense and stop aiding and abetting the criminal factions. I can hear the laughing now from the neighbors.

After reading this and thinking about it, this is totally ridiculous AND not effective.

"Sorry for your loss"? What about how much the death caused issues for everyone else?

Would be a better program to go see the family of someone still living who is a "street problem" and tell them their "entitlements are on the line."

If Junior does anything stupid - their money for weed, weaves,and tattoos will be cut severely.

Now pass the Henessey.

100% true. I believe most didn't go but the were told from the mayor"s office to go and visit the mothers of homicide victims in theor Districts and express their sympathy. The only thing about this is I'm surprised they weren't told to go and visit the mothers of the miscreants who the police were forced to kill. You know, express their condolences and tell them how sorry we all are that the police gunned down their little hoodlum. That I would expect out of this pandering excuse of a wannabe mayor and his ilk.

I know officers that have had terminally ill parents and children and their bosses did nothing but add to their grief by refusing time and putting manpower concerns on the shoulders of these officers while they are dealing with gravely ill family. But now they have no problem martyring these thugs and making special priority bereavement calls to their indifferent and absent relatives. This is another example of how disgusting and outrageous this department has become by allowing lawless, irresponsible crime cultured leeches of society yet another position of importance and attention. Meanwhile, they continue to absolutely decimate and demoralize the rank and file with their bean counting, kowtowing, micro-managing, incompetence.

Sorry for your loss.

Doesn't cost a penny, doesn't mean you believe junior to be an upstanding citizen, just means you empathize with another human being that they lost a loved one. Even if they weren't too happy with that loved ones lifestyle at that time. Even if the mom has issues of her own.

You've never been to the wake or funeral for a person that might have been a fuck up but happens to be a family member or the family member of a friend or neighbor? Sorry for your loss you might say right?

Twenty two districts, twenty two commanders, twenty two visits. Might not generate a thing. Might generate one lead.

I've walked into a family's house fronted by hard core jag offs. Sorry for your loss. No hugs, no putting my arms around anyone, just those simple words. The attitude changed instantly and information poured forward that might not have otherwise. Could it have backfired? Anything is possible, maybe they react a little differently to the shirt and tie.

Do moms of victims withhold information or not press those who have it? Absolutely they do. Will they be receptive to a high ranking white shirt coming to their home on a day that doesn't have as special of a meaning anymore, I bet you most of them are very receptive. Sometimes people just appreciate the thought or attention. Someday that person might witness a police involved shooting and do the right thing instead of "I didn't see nothing" or join the bandwagon of haters who lie on us.

Call it the razzle dazzle or legitimacy or whatever else you want to call it. It can't hurt, it's the bosses responsibility and it could help in the unforeseen future

But the moment you make a mistake they will be there in a hurry to throw you under the bus. Real quick. Or look it up 5 years later and then strip you even though it was fine by all supervisors on the day of the incident.

The air time on zone 10 will now be utilized by the now retired Sgt RF as a non stop 24 hour talk show. The resulting revenue from the commercials sold on this new station will be used to pay down the Pension Deficit.

So Long RF. You were a legend in your own mind.

Your comment is the most to the point of this thread so far! Any exempt club shiny star member want to chime in? We know you read this blog voraciously,and call each other when your the "SCC media star" mentioned! Let's feel so sorry and visit bad parents, the child's respect starts at home,and if parent's both mom and dad (I know dad rare dinosaur species in black community not racist just realist), don't enforce rules their children are like a pack of wild animals,predators many say who do as they want until they meet Mr. Mayhem who shows them how little they really are,some end up dead, others in hospital forever a burden on honest,law abiding taxpaying society! Praying that this summers bloodbath no innocents get shot/killed and that CPD remains safe #bluelivesmatter

On another note worked a security job last night, the guy who I was escorting around (No keesing bandit not that type of escort) was from suburban Michigan he asked me if I was armed, i said yes why? His reply "why i watch the news this city is really crime ridden,and many are being shot" I told him he was correct and when and if he returns he could call for security! The reply priceless "Next time I am here I will request 3 off-duty officers,because I need to be sure to go home to my family, your mayor has let police manpower dwindle!"

SCC ALERT!!!!!

The pension fund is at 3.01 billion and paying out 600 million a year to over 13444 recipients annually. The city contributes 2 for 1 at a combined rate of about 286 million with our payroll deductions. The annual police budget for 2016 went from 12822 positions in 2015 to 12111 for 2016. Based on this math and an influx of new hires being paid 47K to start, the amount the city will match 2 for 1 will decrease and the pay out to recent retirees will increase as a result of their higher payroll at time of retirement. The fund continues to sell assets to make the annuity payments. At this rate the fund will be depleted in 7 years!!!! The math does not lie. If you came on in the 1990s the fund was at 4.2billion then.

This is the REAL ISSUE !!!!!!

We are the enemy. The criminals are the victims of the racist oppressive police. If we try to defend our lives, we are wrong.

of regular work-a-day folk and use it

...Instead of DIRECTLY DEALING WITH
the 10,000 so called "baddest of the bad"
m/fers who drive the other 100K doers of
dumbshit, aka - them hard head m/fers
who revel in making this city (and others)
nigh near uninhabitable for decent and
respectable folk who abide by the law,
go to work and raise/protect their families.

Plus their "dreary" endeavors
to be able to give a decent account
of themselves for when they're called
to stand before their Maker...

Well, that's what the trend-setters

OFF TOPIC

Can you fucking clowns in 011 stop chasing cars? #1 its not worth. Ever hear of the "balancing test"? Feeling personally disrespected or challenged has no place on the balancing test. And a known offender/driver makes it even easier to terminate.

I get it, when the rabbit runs, the fox just CHASES. And most often it's not just for "traffic only." However, most times absolutely nothing good can happen. So much of the situation is controlled by the fleeing shithead, but all of the consequences fall squarely on your shoulders. Especially after it has been terminated on multiple occasions.

And for the love of God, if you guy DO decide to pursue, can you try not to be so reckless? 2 crashed squads last night, and a crashed squad last week. Here's a hint- if you're a bad driver, leaving the chasing to the professionals- just grab some parks checks or something if you need activity.

Chicago State University is part of the state of Illinois university system. It has no connection with the City of Chicago education system.

It's a "commuter college". They have only a small dormitory building. Students who attend CSU usually do not attend full time four years or even years in a row. Often they have gap semesters or years when they leave school and work to get tuition money for the next semester or school year.

You can't judge the graduation rate of CSU using the "four year" standard used for the U. of Illinois in Urbana.

Richard M Daley was the down fall of CPD.
He began caps as a way to endear himself to the black community.
He began merit promotion for Sergeants and above, again to endear himself to the black community.
He closed COS and built OEMC in order give black alderman patronage spots for dispatcher, and TMA's to replace loop traffic.

The city is crumbaling after 20+ years of Richard M. and he is retired living off the citizens all the while playing his fiddle.

Get out while you can.

From an Old Retired Cop ...
Who might have chased Eddie's butt around Cabrini in the old days.

I knew great cops and great bosses who earned and commanded the respect of the troops and the citizens going far back as James Rochford.

What Eddie needs to do is a long running P.R. campaign at all levels. He needs to get out and tell the citizens to RESPECT YOUR POLICE. Tell the parents to teach their kids if they are lost or in danger and can't find someone they know look for a police officer. Kids should be taught that a police officer is someone to run to not run from.

We need to get officers visiting school classrooms again, coloring books and all. We need a program for the teachers otherwise the only voices they hear are the BLMs and gangbangers.

Eddie needs to get Father Pf-what's-his name and all the other Rev-runs a talking to and get them in line with this. The "no snitching" that they condone is getting people killed and people need to talk to the police.

Stay Safe. I may be retired but I still love the CPD.

Sorry for your loss.

Doesn't cost a penny, doesn't mean you believe junior to be an upstanding citizen, just means you empathize with another human being that they lost a loved one. Even if they weren't too happy with that loved ones lifestyle at that time. Even if the mom has issues of her own.

You've never been to the wake or funeral for a person that might have been a fuck up but happens to be a family member or the family member of a friend or neighbor? Sorry for your loss you might say right?

Twenty two districts, twenty two commanders, twenty two visits. Might not generate a thing. Might generate one lead.

I've walked into a family's house fronted by hard core jag offs. Sorry for your loss. No hugs, no putting my arms around anyone, just those simple words. The attitude changed instantly and information poured forward that might not have otherwise. Could it have backfired? Anything is possible, maybe they react a little differently to the shirt and tie.

Do moms of victims withhold information or not press those who have it? Absolutely they do. Will they be receptive to a high ranking white shirt coming to their home on a day that doesn't have as special of a meaning anymore, I bet you most of them are very receptive. Sometimes people just appreciate the thought or attention. Someday that person might witness a police involved shooting and do the right thing instead of "I didn't see nothing" or join the bandwagon of haters who lie on us.

Call it the razzle dazzle or legitimacy or whatever else you want to call it. It can't hurt, it's the bosses responsibility and it could help in the unforeseen future

5/11/2016 09:23:00 AM

Okay, I'll call it by another name. I'd call it taking three hours away from my OWN mother (or daughter, or sister, or mother-in-law) on Mother's Day, a Sunday, the one day a week a commander can reasonably hope is their own (unless one of their people gets into a shooting).
I'd also call it insulting.

One of these motherfucking leaders downtown needs to reread Sir Robert Peel's principles on policing. Nowhere are the police to be social workers. Crime would go down if the police would just do policing, like they should.

You can't do policing anymore. Those days are gone and gone for a generation to come. Car chases? gone. Stopping gang bangers on the corners and patting them down? Gone. Chasing the hood rats from the corners? Gone. Taking hood rats from their cars and searchign the cars? Gone And, that is the good part. What I saw those cops on the line do during demonstrations and what they had to take from the ahole demonstrators was beyond belief !!

I am a big fan of SCC and a big supporter of CPD. But 5/11/2016 09:23:00 AM is absolutely correct.

Critics point out that since the brass wont show up for cops who have been killed or injured, then WTF should the brass show up when some dirtbag shithead gets shot? The critics are absolutely correct.

Nevertheless, CPD has a massive image problem. Doing something like this and merely saying that no parent (however bad) should ever have to bury a child (however bad) is a small but significant step in trying to turn CPD's image around. Kindness and empathy is usually met with kindness and empathy. Everyone feels flattered by being asked their opinion. I have no doubt that questions like "Mam, what do you think we could do to prevent something like this from happening again?" just might yield a surprising amount of actionable information. And even if it doesn't, the visitee will still no doubt tell at least 5-10 people that she was visited by some cops who actually did seem to care.

CPD's image problem is so big and so bad, that it can only be reversed one brick at a time. And this is a step in the right direction. And it costs nothing.

So try it for 6 months. And if I am all wrong, ok, then fuck it.

Call the next case. Not a cop.

SCC ALERT!!!!!

The pension fund is at 3.01 billion and paying out 600 million a year to over 13444 recipients annually. The city contributes 2 for 1 at a combined rate of about 286 million with our payroll deductions. The annual police budget for 2016 went from 12822 positions in 2015 to 12111 for 2016. Based on this math and an influx of new hires being paid 47K to start, the amount the city will match 2 for 1 will decrease and the pay out to recent retirees will increase as a result of their higher payroll at time of retirement. The fund continues to sell assets to make the annuity payments. At this rate the fund will be depleted in 7 years!!!! The math does not lie. If you came on in the 1990s the fund was at 4.2billion then.

This is the REAL ISSUE !!!!!!

One of my Parents is a Boss and he was sent to go out for this thing. As usual Dad was lucky cuz they fed him, provided adult libations, and were playing "the more the merrier" game. He certainly didn't expect that and ended up having a pretty decent couple four hours.
I agree that this was a goofy call by who/whatever but if U have to go these people in 006 weren't too bad to say the least.
They didn't want the PO PO around for such a thing but they didn't have a problem with an extra guest.
Oddly, he enjoyed himself, but he was lucky cuz the other oyster shots in command dealt with people that didn't want anyone to cover at all from "this thing of ours."
Hey, Dads cool and I'm happy he had a blow off type tour while still satisfying the order placed on Em.

This is one of the most ignorant things I have read on here in awhile. Just because someone on disability can " walk , talk , drive kids to school" does not mean they don't deal with terrible pain and suffering from whatever their injury might be. You obviously have never dealt with chronic pain. You learn to LIVE with it you asshole. Unfortunately that doesn't mean that a doctor is going to sign off on the paperwork that the department requires to come back to work. Not everyone has a doctor who is willing to lie for them, or a phonecall to someone who will ensure a cushy inside spot so they're not on the street ENDANGERING the lives of other officers because they cannot live up to the physical abilities that this job demands.

You forgot one little thing. How much interest is that 3.01 billion dollars earning per year? You have to factor that in too. Even at a measly 3% it would be earning 90 million per year, plus the contributions. 6% is more realistic so that's 180 million plus the 286 million in contributions. It's still a deficit but it's not that huge. If Rahm would make the $550 million payment he's supposed to make and start putting the proper amounts into the damn thing in addition to hiring the proper amount of officers to contribute to it, we could easily get out of this problem. Instead of wasting money on projects this city doesn't need like a Star Wars museum, maybe he should put the money into the pensions. This is a thieving politician created problem.

This job is usually taken by a friend of the district commander, although I do know one commander that was ordered to take a lieutenant as head of tact team by a deputy Supt. It can happen. Most tact lieutenants do nothing, take cars home and can't be found during the tour of duty. But, I have known some remarkable exceptions. It is a cushy job that really is not needed. Put the tact teams on the watch to work for the watch and actually work crime patterns and not be forced to bring in BS arrests and write ISR.
