So Bye Bye, All That VRI

Drove my Chevy to the....

Sorry, got caught up in Don McClean for a second.

VRI is no more:


The rumors have already begun as to a replacement:
  • VRI ending at the end of July, new replacement program will be based out of districts that have [Impact] boxes, doing the same thing. Unsure if it will be limited to the people working in those districts, still some debate on that.
Someone posted that 016 and 017 were in backlog earlier this week, so maybe there will be boxes up north? There's certainly a need for them in places like 008, 019 and 022 where coverage has been gutted also. Maybe a Summer Mobile Initiative is on the table - lord knows the lakefront will need it come 04 July.

Since the Department is having trouble having people fill the openings in many a ghetto district, perhaps this rumor limiting to those assigned there is an effort to "backdoor" the seniority provisions and encourage officers to (A) stay or (B) bid in?

Should not be activity based because it's a quota. Also who gets to pick who works it.

I thought they tried the "only officers in the district can work overtime" initiative before in 018 for the CHA initiative and the arbitrator ruled that it had to be opened citywide?

Bullshit it's going to be the rebirth of SOS, TRU, Mobile strike Force all reinvented by Rham, they will be given 10 hour days which is funny because the city went to arbitration against the 10 hour day but this is the only way they will get coppers to want to go to this bullshit unit, so they just stuck it up our asses with the videos and now want us to go get em

I've been saying hire more police...but if he doesn't, then in-district o.t. on r.d.o. or vacation will help. Rapid Power Cars could overlap shift change. Officers will be familiar with the territory since they already work there.

v.r.i. should be replaced with some strike force...but, since there is no manpower and guys with seniority will get the o.t. slot and not be productive...not that they should...but maybe, if they took half the guys in blue jeans report to a directed presence party...or D.P.P...(you heard it here first) then they will be thirsty enough to keep their blue jeans. Oh, and you can send those clouted, bearded narcotics fellows along with them.

So to recap, the guys with seniority work o.t. in their districts handling jobs and the tact guys get to be the police instead of grabbing piss bums.....solved, your welcome.....don't forget those duck dynasty narc guys.....get them in on it too.

Hahahahhaah, so long VRI. Finally the blood money has dried up and we don't have to listed to all the dogs talk about how they do nothing at VRI and make tons. I did my two days a month but at least I made it a point to write a few parkers, get an anov and maybe a mover or two. You guys realize why they cancelled it right? Activity. How can on a Saturday night all of south VRI bring in only 9 parkers total.. For the whole unit, 11 parkers. So to the mutts out there who are gonna complain about it just be happy we were all able to make a ton of money for as long as it lasted and you were able to do all zeros. Now they are going to strictly do voluntary VRE for the tac and area reams 7 days a week as an incentive to be on teams and work. That way they know they will have to bring in activity unlike VRI. I'm not on tac, but I have a feeling that those boys are about to start making a lot of money this summer

With the exception of Michigan Ave, VRI has only been in ghetto areas so to make it sound as if most districts would have VRI like opportunities is misleading.

A long, long time ago, before I even came on Da Job; when the Fed. Judge Prentice Marshall controlled hiring and promotion, they had a program in effect where you worked in your District of assignment for your days off. Note: 1.Those were desperate times, when the City was acknowledging personnel shortages. 2. However, those were days when there was no contract, so you were paid Straight Time. The cost of such a program would be very expensive today at time and a half. Organizing a Summer Mobile Program would be much cheaper at Straight Time. Every District would simply be forced to "Detail" personnel. Whatever the case, it should be a Memorable Summer. Baby"G"

Cops making too much money...envy coming out of the ghetto. Just last week I saw Brookins at HQ. He's out back smoking a square when a copper rolls past in a BMW 5 series. Brookins shakes his head, looks at his rev-run pal and says "that ain't right...our people are suffering at the hands of these people and they're driving around like kings! Ain't much different from the slave days!" I couldn't believe it. Well, I guess I can believe that ghetto doesn't understand the concept of "work hard get things" but slaves? No wonder they're stuck in the rut they are...instead of looking at that officer as someone to look up to or aspire to be ghetto looks at him as "where's mines!?"...so in short I'm not surprised they're ending the cash cow...it's out of envy.

They are cutting out northside officers because their seniority is higher and they were taken all the OT days.

If you put it by districts you cut out the glut of old officers coming into districts they know nothing about.

You also cut out detectives putting in for any of this.

The kicker is commanders than can throw a little carrot to their desk crew to sit around and make overtime.

Now you know the real reason they will change the program.

The best way to do this would be to allow officers in each district to work in their own district on their day off. This way they know the district, the other officers and who the criminals are. Of course, this make too much sense so they'll do something different.

Certain sgts only pick their lap dogs even though other officers sign up. In 009 for example it's always the same people on midnights working the o.t. Just do a foia on that if you can. On 3rd watch same thing some guys get 1 day a month while others can work it everyday they are there, and when it's that individuals Friday they offer it to the other officers. So officer lap dog can work it his first 3days at work and on his Friday he chooses not to wor and then the certain Sgt offers it to the other minions.

My wife and I cleaned up big time working VRI. VRI was a blessing. We were pulling in an extra $2100 per month. We built a brand new deck, added a new luxry bathroom, a gourmet kitchen, paid off the cars and drew down our credit card debt. Maybe the city will start VRI again when they realize that VRI was not perfect but it served as a deterrent. Bring back VRI.

Has nothing to do with the activity bright guy. How many years did it last? Its all smoke an mirrors. They did it originally to put cops out there for visibility. Plus the main reason was to save money on not hiring new cops.

Think about this bright guy, if every cop working this did 5 parker, 5 movers, 5 anovs, look at how much money the cops had to bring in, IT PAID FOR THE OFFICERS SALARY FOR THE NIGHT!!!! So grab your thinking cap here son, if you paid for your own over time for the night of your vri, then the city does not have to hire new officers, no pension contributions, no benefits, this saved the city tons of money.

How much time do you have on the job? I have 23 and did not work vri. I am ok with my little house and 2014 honda. I do work CTA and can live off of that. Good luck to all.

I agree with the draft-dodging part. The funny thing is if he went into the Army they would not give him a rifle and send him to Vietnam. The Army would have him touring military bases entertaining the troops around the world for a few years. He would be giving back to the country they gave him all his fame and fortune.

When VRI first started there were people doing work and making arrest. McCarthy got upset over this. He wanted the cars out there the whole 8 hours, give your arrest to a tact team.

VRI has worked in some areas. Look at the stats in these areas: 61 to 67 from King to Woodlawn. 75 to 79 Exchange to Yates. 55 to 59 Hamilton to Loomis.

The problem with VRI is that the hours don't cover enough time. It would probably make more sense to have 2 shifts of VRI.

Actually the catholic schools are about to make a slight pickup in their enrollment. All the cps, state budget, teachers union nonsense is going to scare a few people away. Class sizes are already about 50pct higher than the catholic schools, with the budget cuts it will approach 100pct. Avg class size in catholic schools is 18-21, cps is 30 right now, legally they can go to 39. Good cps schools already ask for donations from parents for the extras. They will be asking for at least twice that now just to keep from getting out of control. 500 fee at lane tech, figure on a thousand next year. Same for grammar schools

Overtime in a District should be offered to coppers in that District. They are invested in the results and may actually do something for the men and women they work with.

So all you wiseguys boasting about your DVDs and Netflix movies while you are working, here you go.

I believe NO ONE should be working it to force the City to hire. You are all working against your best interests, but you already know that and don't care.

Don't worry another plan is in place, this will be where it should of been in every district, but the real solution is academy open 24/7, pump out 3-4,000 more coppers less chiefs more Indians (Just an old saying not a slur). The new plan will have more "boots on the ground" not sitting in cars watching videos. Foot beats 2 coppers will have an area to "patrol" Great idea will also help some of the coppers get in shape walking is much better than sitting all day raising risks of heart attacks,and many other physical problems! this is finally a great idea especially for summer! The beaches will also have coppers on foot, and more bicycle patrols that is "change we can believe in!"

Work all the overtime you want and burn yourself out, as for me the only burn I'll get will be by my pool. Have fun shaving years off your life.

A bit OT. Article of the NYT article about the Chicago shootings over the last weekend in today's paper. Check their website for the full reading. A lot of nice pictures, video and audio. More like a log of incidents with no real insight as to cause or solutions. But the liberals all know the police are the problem. If only they would respect the community, the shootings and violence would go away.

Please stop working OT on this job. Work your regular shift and go home. Do not volunteer for anything. There are plenty of other side jobs out there for you. The city has stuck it up our collective asses once again with the release of all those videos without any explanation. RAHM is the enemy and we need to stick together or else our jobs will be destroyed beyond repair. DO NOT be part of anything until our union obtains a court order to stop the release of these videos. To hell with the gang bangers killing each other. Take the report and move on. Protect the hard working tax payers and protect your family and friends.

OT: WTF!:

In 2013, the city spent $260,000 of TIF funds for the Asia on Argyle sign,

On this piece of crap??

https://assets.dnainfo.com/generated/chicago_photo/2013/02/with-more-improvements-13597582482445.JPG/extralarge.jpg

And tens of thousands to embed designs into pavement at some intersections. A one year moratorium on all expenditures except the most dire repairs should be put into place and the city should get income and outgo under control. This is all so offensive.
STOP SPENDING MONEY WE DON'T HAVE.

Hahahahhaah, so long VRI. Finally the blood money has dried up and we don't have to listed to all the dogs talk about how they do nothing at VRI and make tons. I did my two days a month but at least I made it a point to write a few parkers, get an anov and maybe a mover or two. You guys realize why they cancelled it right? Activity. How can on a Saturday night all of south VRI bring in only 9 parkers total.. For the whole unit, 11 parkers. So to the mutts out there who are gonna complain about it just be happy we were all able to make a ton of money for as long as it lasted and you were able to do all zeros. Now they are going to strictly do voluntary VRE for the tac and area reams 7 days a week as an incentive to be on teams and work. That way they know they will have to bring in activity unlike VRI. I'm not on tac, but I have a feeling that those boys are about to start making a lot of money this summer

Like the department is to blame for that. Let's not forget that before there was a limit on VRI coppers were working every single day of furloughs on VRI. Yeah working 20-25 days everyday on VRI. If they weren't on furlough they were workin all 9 of their days off every period. And who's choice was that? The officers who VOLUNTARILY sign up and work it on every day off. It took the department to move and limit it to 4 days a month then down to 3 days a month to avoid burnout. Greedy coppers will sell their soul if given the chance.. Which many of you did. So it's not the departments fault, you morons with no life worked everyday for that almighty dollar.

I agree with the draft-dodging part. The funny thing is if he went into the Army they would not give him a rifle and send him to Vietnam. The Army would have him touring military bases entertaining the troops around the world for a few years. He would be giving back to the country they gave him all his fame and fortune.

I hope VRI is over. All the dog ass bums who take 4 hours on reports in 012 and wait in the station just to jump on paper to get VRI activity deserve it. There was a beat that refused to take an in progress domestic call because they had to go home on a uniform adjustment to tie their shoe laces, and only waited in the station for the unit that eventually ended up with the job after two other beats declined the job because of some mystery stop to hold themselves down and jump on the paper. Can you top this? Please let me know. Liutenant was talking about shootings one day at roll call and when he was finished he asked if anyone had anything to add and this wonder boy raised his hand and said:" I need arrests for VRI so if anyone gets an arrest would you please put me on your paper". Can you believe it? Liutenant didn't seem to think it was a bad idea. Kill VRI! People in 012 go down on "reports" to work out. Keep screwing your fellow officers in 012.

I however will be smiling all the way to the bank. Especially since I work in 005 and we are on 10 hour days. So during the week we have three days off in a row, on our weekends we have 4 days off in a row so If I work one day VRE a week or 4 a month I still get two days off each week and three days off for my weekends which is AWESOME! Plus, Not only do we get paid at time and a half, but we get paid time and a half for 10 hour days which is ALOT of money. So sure, go ahead and call names, be angry and all that other stuff but working in 005 I think we are entitled to a little perk considering 005 is the most depressing place in the world to work.

A long, long time ago, before I even came on Da Job; when the Fed. Judge Prentice Marshall controlled hiring and promotion, they had a program in effect where you worked in your District of assignment for your days off. Note: 1.Those were desperate times, when the City was acknowledging personnel shortages. 2. However, those were days when there was no contract, so you were paid Straight Time. The cost of such a program would be very expensive today at time and a half. Organizing a Summer Mobile Program would be much cheaper at Straight Time. Every District would simply be forced to "Detail" personnel. Whatever the case, it should be a Memorable Summer. Baby"G"
6/04/2016 05:56:00 AM
***********************************************************************************
To the best of my memory, Marshall only controlled promotions not hiring. In any event, the first contract came into being in 1980, and Marshall controlled things until around 1988, the exam scam year. He cost me a promotion or 2. We had special employment back in the 70's but I specifically recall it was not necessarily in unit of assignment. Special in the 80's may have been, but since the contract was in existence it would probably have been at time and a half.

Having a special employment program, even at time and a half, is still cheaper for the city than hiring additional manpower because of training, insurance and other employment perqs.

I've been saying hire more police...but if he doesn't, then in-district o.t. on r.d.o. or vacation will help. Rapid Power Cars could overlap shift change. Officers will be familiar with the territory since they already work there.

v.r.i. should be replaced with some strike force...but, since there is no manpower and guys with seniority will get the o.t. slot and not be productive...not that they should...but maybe, if they took half the guys in blue jeans report to a directed presence party...or D.P.P...(you heard it here first) then they will be thirsty enough to keep their blue jeans. Oh, and you can send those clouted, bearded narcotics fellows along with them.

So to recap, the guys with seniority work o.t. in their districts handling jobs and the tact guys get to be the police instead of grabbing piss bums.....solved, your welcome.....don't forget those duck dynasty narc guys.....get them in on it too.

I agree with the draft-dodging part. The funny thing is if he went into the Army they would not give him a rifle and send him to Vietnam. The Army would have him touring military bases entertaining the troops around the world for a few years. He would be giving back to the country they gave him all his fame and fortune. Elvis Presley went in....why not him?

Because that is not what he believed. He should have done community service. I always liked this guy.

"Hopefully they will send all the white male bearded narcotics guys to work the new improved VRI boxes. Everytime I see them I get a chuckle."

---Crazy, do these guys think that dude doesn't know they are the police when riding through the neighborhoods? They look like extras for Sons of Anarchy.

Not really. I actually get a chuckle at how much my facial hair bothers you that you have to come on a blog to bitch about it. Ha!! The little things. :)

Ya, I know this is what he said. But, it is hard to believe that a professional boxer is anti war. And, he made a lot of racist statements about not fighting for the white man. then joined the racist group of black muslims.

Ali was a great boxer, probably the best of all time

Boxers are not pacifists, they beat other men for a living, they would probably do it for free, they realize that they potentially could kill their opponent in the ring or beat him so bad it could permanently disable him or shorten his life

He probably did encounter some racism in his life. He also was about 30% white himself. Many black people living in the south did experience racism back then. But many white people helped him as well

I think the real reason he refused to be inducted was his ego. I'm the toughest guy in the world, who's going to give orders to me?

Does anybody have a bigger ego than a successful professional fighter?

If he were a true American icon, he would have been inducted and he would have been given a fluff assignment and worked to boost morale of the troops

He mellowed out a lot over the years, I think deep down he realized that it wasn't his best decision and that he had some prejudices and bigotry of his own to work out

A few hours in a Union civil war cemetery might have provided some reflection on whether white people were all wrong or not

He didn't draft dodge. When he was selected he didn't run to a foreign country to avoid going in, he refused to appear for induction, was arrested, charged, tried and convicted then sent to prison. That's Civil Disobedience and he took the punishment for it like a Man.

You want to take about Vietnam era shitbirds, let's chat about Jane Fonda. Ali isn't one of them. Like hm or not, he didn't Dodge the Draft!

Michigan Ave. ain't going nowhere, even Rahm knows he can't let the savage run free there. Chicago, murder capital USA. BLM/ACLU thanks.

The only way I would ever volunteer for any city numbers unit is if they issued me a balaclava, a m4 with unlimited ammo and a immunity to do whatever I like just like the mayor. Anything short of that keep your citywide team.

6/4@11:00am - Very interesting idea. No one volunteer to work 3/4 July if they're RDO. A good way to let the Gold Star Nobility know that we,don't buy their insincere bullshit and that their actions speak louder than their words! Correct me if i'm wrong but wouldn't cancelling the RDO compel them to pay double time? This is one way to send a message & garner more $$ if they force you to work. A mini-job action.

Any ideas or support FOP Lodge 7 ?

He was a conscientious objector you dumb fuck. He didn't run to Canada, he stood his ground, went to court and took a personal and professional hit. I lost a cousin in Vietnam, and I wish he was here instead of having died in a bullshit trumped up war. 58,000 military were killed in a war that came out of a lie about the gulf of Tonkin incident. Read Robert McNamaras book. I am an Army veteran 1971-74 and I mourn every service member lost in any war. But Clay/Ali had balls. Our government sent soldiers there then limited their ability to fight. You know who should rot in hell? Kennedy, Johnson, McNamara and Kissinger. Fuck em all.

RIP Champ

Truth! Standing your ground, accepting the legal ramifications and incredible financial loss is not dodging anything, he faced it. And won. That's bravery.

Community service? Muhammad Ali's case went before the Supreme Court. You don't do community service when you WIN.
