New Overtime!

Lurching from one disaster to the the next, crisis management at it's finest:
  • The Chicago Police Department is offering more overtime opportunities, a new strategy aimed at keeping more officers on the streets.

    Officers can earn extra pay on their days off while patrolling their assigned beats.

    The goal is to have officers working the neighborhoods they know best.
So this is a rehash of the old "PRIDE" cars that used to roam certain districts? Sounds like a good idea, but is this citywide? Or merely in "Impact Zone Districts" as we've heard?
  • CPD Supt. Eddie Johnson said there is an unacceptable amount of violence in Chicago.

    "The only way we're going to help reduce this crime is for people to report things when they see it. But again, I'm committed, CPD is committed to restoring the trust that the community has in the police department," Johnson said.

    And as a way to help build that trust, today officers attended Saturday a team-building workshop called "policing at the speed of trust" to learn new policing tools.
Whoa...what's this? "...the speed of trust"? This sounds li9ke it could give us a couple of posts worth of material. Anyone?

None of this shit is ever gonna happen. Trust? New policing tools? The haters will always say they don't trust the cops and try and demonize the cops. Just a desperate attempt to try and assure people he's doing something about the 3 month shitstorm that just started. He isn't doing shit but talking nonsense. It's all BS.

Dear morons in charge of implementing overtime programs,

People sign up for overtime to make extra money, not to make extra effort to fix the unfixable communities of criminals and leeches on society. No one gives a fuck about those communities, not even those living in them. Why the fuck should we care? You can't fix it with overtime. You can't fix it by actually hiring the required amount of officers to effectively patrol it either, though that might have helped a little in the past. Now, with the media and the department acting like the police are the problem, the police have decided they might as well stop being part of the solution. Give us tasers and try to convince us that we shouldn't use deadly force when it is allowed, warranted, and necessary. Give us body cameras, in-car cameras, and microphones, and try to convince us it's to protect us and citizens, rather than its true purpose, to try to hang us at every opportunity. Impact zones "work" because people aren't very likely to shoot each other in front of dozens of cops. Did you happen to notice that they've just decided to keep on shooting each other everywhere else? Take all that overtime money and use it to buy a fucking clue. Your city is completely out of control. Your officers have zero respect for their "leadership." And you are completely out of touch with reality.

Signed,
Every cop with half a brain or more

Came time for the run and a M/1 was keeping her time, she was also keeping her own time... when she finished she was at 1524. When she went inside to check off, they told her she failed at 1624. Ridiculous... and then 3 f/1s finished after her all passed... all in the same age range.... fing b.s. this city and department are a joke

"Policing at the speed of trust..."

Good Gawd! Where do they come from with all this semantic fucking-around?
More weasel-speak, word salad and slippery syntax.

How about?
"Artfully mismanaging a public safety meltdown
at the speed of bullshit."

And we cop a plea for misusing the word "bullshit"
in this faulty context. Bullshit DOES
at least have redeeming commercial value as fertilizer.

Any Copper throwing their lot with this
high performance fuckery is a damned fool.

Policemen are treated worse than the m/fers who
chased that poor woman onto LSD and the mental midgets
in charge are hoping and praying that enough Coppers are
stupid enough to throw themselves into the volcano of
death, destruction, willful ignorance and perpetual grievance
to try and have a mitigating effect on these assholes chasing
each other down and performing ritual death rites on each other.

>Hideous death-screams and laughter as one Devil cuts another Devil's heart out
through his back or some similar such while the rest carry on in approval<

This shit has been intentionally pushed WAAYY beyond the ability of mere Policemen to fix.

Don't volunteer for this foolishness...
No matter how much cheap, tawdry, shiny and sparkly shit
the exempt echelon waves at you for Rahm al-Ghoul.

Men have bloodied their knives for lesser slights.
All of this and the "bargaining unit" refuses to
go on the warpath.

A "Gentleman's Agreement" that Rahm is fully incapable of honoring
because the milqtoasts at fop just don't have it in them to put not only
the Old Testament fear of GOD in that vengeful, misdiagnosed sissy-weasel
North Shore Shit-Ass, but the genuine fear of upright men.

Rahm ain't shit.
We PERSONALLY crossed paths and locked eyes with him while on duty before he managed
to steal the mayoralty of Chicago.

For those of you who hunted, chased and battled truly BEE-AY-DEE m/fers...
When you surprise an asshole so good, he stutter-steps and almost trips
over his own feet as his primitive hind-brain is telling him to flee
while his fat-cap somehow manages to override that impulse?

It ain't rocket science.

It's having done some Policing
in Chicago's Wild Muthafuckin' Kingdom.

Police like you have no friends.
Save your good Policing and care/concern for decent,
upright citizens who appreciate it.

Let all the rest continue to shit themselves
and scream for somebody to come clean it up.

Great idea for officers to work the beats that they have come to know. Gee, how many RDOs a month can an officer work his beat? Two, three, four days out of the month. And when there aren't enough officers will officers be shifted around the city to fill those beats? Can anyone say burnout from too much time spent on the street, on the same beat and not enough time away from it. Yeah, this is a great idea.

The concept of doing more with less is ridiculous. The only thing doing more with less solves is paying a salary, bennies and a pension to an employee. OT is an acceptable consequence of having less cops. But cutting crime will not be the intended result, with the present lack of officers and the witch hunt for officers, with any amount of OT.

Culture of violence cannot be dealt with more officers. It takes a mindset and actions of patriots to achieve. Values, morals, ethics, just to mention a few. Certain groups of people are doomed. Look at the way they treat their community. And those certain communities' intentional neglect in seeing the truth will be the driving force in their continuous failure.

There shouldn't be any down beat cars. If a watch is short have people from a prior watch fill in based on seniority. Once overtime is done, Those officers be put at end of list the next time the situation calls for o.t. Then eventually they will go through the entire roster giving everyone a chance to work over if they volunteer...

Talk about burnout, who wants to work another day a week in your assigned district patrolling the same streets, dealing with the same dope spots and assholes. Great money but poor mental health management this city can not do anything correct. Read the stats, all these shooting gs went south when the East Coast idiot Mac Daddy dumped MSF AND TRU.

If citizens are more worried about TRUST then murders, robberies, rape, etc...etc...violent crimes over all then civilization it pretty much doomed! Get your priorities straight would you rather have your kids be prey to this type of carnage or are you gonna continue to worry about who to trust in the police. Hey, no doubt a few bad apples have been around, however, it takes 2 to tango and criminal behaviors are being more tolerated day in day out by crime infested families. Rewarding bad behavior is a huge problem, and seems more like folks including the media are more worried about the police then the body bags at the morgue!!! Change your culture and things will fall into place. Stop being naive, and protecting your kids that are out of control. And it shows when every time a criminal commits a crime and gets caught first thing they yell out is, "MOMMA, MOMMA, GO GET MY MOMMA" which says pretty much your gonna get him out of his/her mess even if its attacking the police at whatever cost, UNACCEPTABLE!

And I agree with refusing to work this latest abortion; keeping the self-cleaning ghetto ovens from "doin' whut dey do" is a lesson in futility. There are some things that just can't be fixed and some people that just refuse to conform to civility. Keeping them contained to limit the spread of death, destruction and misery is about the best we can hope for. So unless EVERY neighborhood sees additional manpower via such a program, leave the ghettos to their own devices, folks.

And in the event you haven't been paying attention, the Rhamster is gunning for us both barrels, so why continue to whore yourselves out for that Pygmy of a pimp? Working that shit for a mayor who's actively looking to destroy your contractual protections and promised pension is the equivalent of Battered Wife Syndrome.

People sign up for overtime to make extra money, not to make extra effort to fix the unfixable communities of criminals and leeches on society. No one gives a fuck about those communities, not even those living in them. Why the fuck should we care? You can't fix it with overtime. You can't fix it by actually hiring the required amount of officers to effectively patrol it either, though that might have helped a little in the past. Now, with the media and the department acting like the police are the problem, the police have decided they might as well stop being part of the solution. Give us tasers and try to convince us that we shouldn't use deadly force when it is allowed, warranted, and necessary. Give us body cameras, in-car cameras, and microphones, and try to convince us it's to protect us and citizens, rather than its true purpose, to try to hang us at every opportunity. Impact zones "work" because people aren't very likely to shoot each other in front of dozens of cops. Did you happen to notice that they've just decided to keep on shooting each other everywhere else? Take all that overtime money and use it to buy a fucking clue. Your city is completely out of control. Your officers have zero respect for their "leadership." And you are completely out of touch with reality.

That's great and all, but I'll be working overtime... A lot of overtime. My family deserves nice things so in turn I will provide that. Good rant though, if you need me I'll be making that blood money with a smile on my face!

Hahahahahahah. Awesome. Yeah you see them in court and they are all wanna be bearded bikers or think that all of a sudden they are like special forces and have the 5.11 tactical beard. In 18 years in arresting people in the 11th district and I have never arrested a "biker hype" for heroin. Why do white guys who go to narcotics do that? It's pretty embarrassing.

People sign up for overtime to make extra money, not to make extra effort to fix the unfixable communities of criminals and leeches on society. No one gives a fuck about those communities, not even those living in them. Why the fuck should we care? You can't fix it with overtime.

Speed of trust should have started at the top. From Rhaminator and Superintendent Eddie. Oh trust from them receives no trust from us no matter how fast or slow. This move to stop VRI is just another way to muscle the troops. reinventing the wheel did not just happen. The took an old wheel and they are about two spray paint some weird color of shit on it and tell the community it's platinum. Lies lies lies. Put someone as superintendent who didn't want the job, he never applied, fake examination to promote his lover and their friends, so there will be more incompetence at the command level.

The reality of all of this is that there are no amount of police officers that you can put on the street in black communities that will significantly cut the violent crime rate. The black community has failed again in Springfield to pass laws that will keep these shooters locked up for a long time as they fear putting too many young black men in prison. They keep denying what is happening and they allow innocent people to be victimized, over and over again. Wait until this Summer is in full swing and the West side gangsters roam the Gold Coast and beaches wrecking havoc on the unsuspecting. When you pull most of the police out of quiet peaceful neighborhoods and saturate crime prone neighborhoods, you accomplish nothing of value.

The whole idea of getting rid of VRI is to get coppers to answer jobs while working OT. Every district is in a backlog, so bring on coppers working OT on their RDO to handle jobs lending. This is not gonna be working your RDO and doing nothing but being a presence it's gonna be handling calls. And guess what the coppers working are gonna DO? Stay down on jobs so the coppers on OT will get assigned jobs.

Of course in the privileged society we now live in, those that cant accomplish things the right way by earning or actually passing a test, are going to claim some type of discrimination against them.

Speed 3: "The speed of trust"
In this 3rd film of the series, Keenu Reeves is back and plays a hilarious role. Keenu dresses up in a fat suit and has a stunning resemblance to Carl Winslow. Reeves is determined more than ever to pander to the community. The historic bus from the first action flick will be in appearance as Keenu and the evil boss of the city tries to throw every police officer in front and under it. This movie also features many flash backs from Dennis Hopper and what it's like from the upper brass that once screwed him over.

While I agree with the first 2/3rd of your post, the truth is the things you cite in the last third are things that cops actually do whether we are "supposed to" or not. Show me a cop who hasn't refereed a domestic or cornered an animal in someone's basement or given someone a ride home just because you thought they deserved it ... and I'll show you someone who isn't really a cop. I understand where you're going with this and again, I agree but the truth is that most of us will never stop doing all those other things because they make up 80% of what we do when responding to 911 calls.

Wasn't the reason that they did away with the six day work week was because by the last day of work, officers were more burnt out and stressed out leading to more c.r. numbers and police involved shootings by the officers on the 6th work day?
So now, you work a longer shift for 4 days in a row and work your day off at a longer shift.
This would be especially stressful for those officers working mid nights as even with two days off, it still seems like you only get one day off a week. Has Mgt or the FOP given any thought on how to address this issue. This new to practice conflicts with prior studies. there will be disclaimers signed stating this was voluntary and the officers should as hell won't be able to even mention this in any defense they offer in an administrative or criminal procedure against them. FOP: this issue needs to be addressed.

And for those that live above their mesns.... that would be a many of ya.... You will eat up this sherade too while oír contractual gets gutted. But hey you got your retro and Vri which is all that matters.

Are you kidding? Any copper out there worth his salt and who has worked a beat car knows that's our job pretty much every day. As I read your list I read more than half I do on a daily basis working a beat car. It's not just me, pretty much every copper in America on a beat car does this. Something tells me your a unit boy who hasn't seen the inside of a beat car for a long long time and are bitter. Bitter about what? Nothing, you have a spot but you have been there so long you forgot how good you really have it and how much a beat car really sucks. Try not to patronize the real "working police" the guy jumping day in and day out in a beat car. Some of you guys on these teams and in units just don't get it. Not all, just some of you.

Look over here stabbing last night on archer ave over cell phone? About 6800 west/south archer on 811 beat! 2200 hours we need vri now extra cars now! The victim now they attacked the thin blue lines spouse stabbed! Are you insane Eddie? Commander O'Donnell step up to the plate now! Cell phone taken from a 15 year old people of brown color wtf! But good news is they were caught in 010 no news coverage maybe as usual people rats of color are offenders and victims both white like it never happened! You got department computer look up incident before they hide it! Ridiculous! But if the thugs were shot and killed for a knife would the police be stripped and media 24/7 ruining coppers lives?

I retired 4 years ago and left that neighborhood for greener pastures. Don't fool yourself, Garfield ridge and clearing are done for. I didn't grow up there but lived there for 26 years when I got on the job. It was nice but has drastically changed. I love listening to the people who still live there who grew up there try to convince people how awesome it is out there. It's not, it's turning real bad real quick. If your out there and have more than 10 years to go on this job get out now. I see in 5-7 years crime getting even worse out there.

i wish the city would extend the overtime to other departments

it would be nice to get these fucking streets paved and new lighting put up in all parts of the city.

especially the streets that actually have tax paying citizens living there

005 has no cars for the watch how is this going to work with no cars???? I guess will take the bus and do bus checks all day and hope out when we on a call and uber to the scene.

********

There are a total of 197 active cars for VRI and 23 pool cars for a grand total of 220 cars. If they give overtime to each district that will be about 10 cars per district. I'm guessing that some districts will have more spots than other. Example, the 16th district may have 5 cars a night available for overtime and the 11th district may have 20 cars up for overtime a night. I'm sure some districts will get much more than others. Higher crime, higher amount of overtime spots but to ensure no beefs are made each district will get some spots at least. Even if a slow district puts up 4 cars that's enough ot for 8 officers a night or about 240 spots s month. If they restrict it to 3 days a month then you can't beef saying it's not fair, there are still 240 spots in a district for ot even though it's 4 cars a night and busy ghetto districts will have tons of cars up. The ot opportunities will match the crime. High crime then more cars up, less crime and less cars up.

While I agree with the first 2/3rd of your post, the truth is the things you cite in the last third are things that cops actually do whether we are "supposed to" or not. Show me a cop who hasn't refereed a domestic or cornered an animal in someone's basement or given someone a ride home just because you thought they deserved it ... and I'll show you someone who isn't really a cop. I understand where you're going with this and again, I agree but the truth is that most of us will never stop doing all those other things because they make up 80% of what we do when responding to 911 calls. Actual crime fighting takes up only 20%. Stay safe out there ...

Thank you for reading through and for your comment.

I agree with you both 110% and yes WE do all of those things and much more than people realize because that is who WE are.

WE need to stick together, hold the line, continue to do what is right for the citizens, for the department and for ourselves.

WE need to stop taking that carrot that THEY are dangling out there like Link Cards.

I am just trying to remind those that may have lost their way with all the media and politics that WE are better than that.

Together WE are strong stop allowing THEM to divide and conquer.

Recently, a crime occurred in the Garfield Ridge area in which an innocent resident was brutally attacked. El Patron restaurant is very proud of it's Garfield Ridge roots and in no way condones crime in the neighborhood. El Patron appreciates, respects and supports the hard work of the Chicago Police Department in our area. Despite many rumors, El Patron has been and is continuing to cooperate fully to ensure that the offenders are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

O.t. The blatant racism that is going on at the candidate testing is ridiculous. A friend of mine had her power test today and passed everything. Came time for the run and a M/1 was keeping her time, she was also keeping her own time... when she finished she was at 1524. When she went inside to check off, they told her she failed at 1624. Ridiculous... and then 3 f/1s finished after her all passed... all in the same age range.... fing b.s. this city and department are a joke

Racism, or stupidity? Fifteen twenty-four can sound a lot like sixteen twenty-four if someone fails to enunciate properly. She needs to file a complaint immediately.

Everything is racist nowadays.

Could be an honest mistake.

While all of this is going on the largest district in the city is half staffed in the 16th district. Not to mention that the tactical teams have 15 officers instead of 30 and the moron sergeant on one of the tactical teams just lost six of his guys because he is pushing his people to make illegal stops so that he can pad ........................not the largest district you can't count OHARE. Either
