Safety Warning

From assorted sources:
  • Intel is out that numerous gang factions have met and discussed shooting Police using snipers and high powered weapons.

    It is imperative that we always know where we are and who's around us.

    Commanders, Lt's and Sgt's should ONLY be concerned with the safety of their Officers and ZERO concerns of activity!

    Everyone's #1 priority NEEDS to be going home after their tour, backing each other up and Officer Safety!

    Stay Safe, God Help us and watch over us.
Watch yourselves and your partners.

Send the info, lets see if they publish it. God forbid they place anyone in a negative light, other then the police. Unfortunately, if they truley do have a "sniper" in place with a decent weapon and an idea of how to use it... We are FUCKed. Even if no one leaves the station, Bud Bilikin is 6 days away!

How many are accomplished marksmen with long guns? How many even have their scopes properly zeroed? Sniping isn't that easy with no training; however, wear your vests.

I think we have been doing pretty good so far. But please be careful we don't want to press our luck. Don't run in to anything. Remember time is our friend.

I hope we all live long and make it into retirement.

If this is true, then everyone should have long guns in the trunk.

Unfortunately, how many are trained on rifles?

As someone mentioned on another thread, "this is what happens when too many leadership positions are filled by clout".

Another question to ask is, "Where is FOP on all this?"

Oh sorry, that's another "filled by clout" problem. Don't worry, they'll tow the city's perspective.

SCC, The problem is that many of those white shirts do not really know what it is like to work the streets on a daily basis, since they are clout babies and therefore are beholding to their clout so they demand activity from the officers, that they themselves no nothing about and never did.

I'm getting pretty sick and tired of lieutenants constantly saying that alot of the districts are not sticking to the 2 man car rule especially on days. They are pissed that sgts have to ride with someone and that screws up the sheets. They think it's a waste of manpower. Guess the safety of officers only applies to certain people then theRe is enough manpower. Manpower isn't the ofixers and sergeant's concerns. There is a bigger picture here and again people can't see past their noses. Station security is supposed to be a 2 man car and districts are still downing the car because there is not enough manpower. District commanders need to reconfigure their administrative staff and start putting some of them on the street

When I was in the Army there were several "former" gang members enlisted andAs we saw in TX, and other places there are some prior military, who are shitheads. If you do not always wear a vest in this day and age you are an idiot, however A RIFLE ROUND WILL GO THREW YOUR VEST LIKE A WARM KNIFE THREW BUTTER!

I spent over 30 years on the job and worked in a citywide unit. When there was a problem we went in and solved it, sometime using he y handed tactics but never on solid citizens. But due to the news media, hungry lawyers and liberal do good er we are now left with a powerless pokice department. Just look into a y police involved shooting g nationwide and not one of these people shot were solid citizens. They had no up bringing. Pare ts that were screwed up etc. Chicago is so screwed up due to Rahm, Obama, Jody Weiss and McCarty. Not one of these folks really know Chicago. Sure we have let some questionable people become the police, but when you allow people like Father Pkeger, Aldermen like Beale, Sawyer and the likes of them try to run the department this is what you get, don't blame people from other parts of the city because they work, save money, raise thier kids right, and get along with being the cause of others problems. You too can prevail, get up early, be prepared to fill out a job application , have your social security number and references available. Don't go looking for a job with weed smell on you, and your pa ts on the ground etc. Act like a human being a d not some savage looking for mediaa free handout. I'm really tired of the Police being kicked around. Maybe our news media should create a public announcement on how to act when the police LAWFULLY STOP YOU. STAY SAFE OFFICERS AND BE READY AT ALL TIMES. BACK EACH OTHER UP. CARAVAN TO YOUR JOBS, AND SERGEANTS, LTS. AND XO'S BACK UP YOUR MEN, EARN THAT BIG MONEY. I TOOK CARE OF MY TROOPS. FROM A RETIRED SERGEANT.

All of this and the clueless, reckless fucks at HQ still mandate that officers working Michigan Ave VRI wear the neon reflective vests!
Why not just draw a target on the back of the vest to make it even easier for some whacked out asshole with a grudge against us? Or maybe they could require blinking day-glo rings around our hats too.
That order needs to be rescinded immediately in these very dangerous times.

This is about the time where the silent majority needs be less silent. All this induced race tension was created, it didn't happen naturally. It's such a terrible thought, but these anachists won't be happy and the government won't act until a bunch of coppers end up dead. 2016 is turning out to be a year where you have to save yourself. Acts of selflessness will get you hurt, fired, sued, jailed or killed. Police used to be about civil order, now police are becoming prey in The Most Dangerous Game.

This guy has a loose screw. He continues to threaten people to bring in numbers. Get a head a day, isrs and anovs. Threatens people to bring it in or he will replace teams. Sure if you want to be in tac its your choice and if you don't like it leave but for this guy to go off on rants every day to bring in activity is assanine.

Good thing one of the front desk officers in 025 got to go to carbine training last week. I think the rifle might be bigger than her. Meanwhile as a miltary veteran, and qualified as a rifle expert 3 times in the corps. I can't even sniff the class. I've worked in 025 for well over a decade, and have yet to see the carbine rack at the front desk. That being said, everybody watch each other's 6.

The only one's that are worried about activity are the higher-ups at HQ. Most Watch Commanders, Captains and even Commanders aren't too concerned with any of that right now, but some of you guys gotta lighten up with the us and them thing. You treat supervisors on this job like we're part of all this activist nonsense, or like we're pushing the Obama, Emanuel and other political agendas at your expense. Knock that shit off. Some of you could actually learn a thing or two from some good lieutenants and captains, things that would help you do the job under the current circumstances, and protect yourself and your job in the meantime. Get past the whole I know better than they do mentality, I'm better than they are, I'm younger, smarter, wiser, more experienced, know it all and am entitled to it mentality. That shit is only going to get you in trouble, fetal or not. Be willing to learn, act as one and stop the us and them thing, you're on a long lonely path there. But, I've probably just wasted two minutes of my time writing this, since your stronger, smarter and better than I am and you know what time it is, no matter what. Well, to those of you who do know better than the goofs, please soon realize that coppers can't even agree where to have lunch, let alone how to operate safely on the street while protecting their well-being and their job. But maybe, just maybe some of your peers in the white shirts do. We're not the enemy boys and girls, and eventually, we're the ones who are either gonna help your ass out, or hand it to you.

I see this all the time, everybody focused on the prime object of attention and never what maybe going on above or behind them.
Always know your surroundings, always be looking behind and upwards especially in a group.
Have a cover and escape plan too.

A lot of these "activists" claim "the community" can police themselves.
I'd say Biliken would be a perfect opportunity for them to give it a try.

Well, you win the stupid comment of the day award! God I hope you're not an officer! Dude, anybody that isn't in advanced stages of Parkinson's has a better than average odds at killing someone with a long gun. Especially a target that isn't moving. How about this... He hits you by just "dumb luck"???? Perhaps you're an ex-military guy ( or swat) and you have this false narrative that only you, with all your training, can make that shot. Get over yourself, and Please, stop posting, your thoughts make absolutely no sense!

I see a lot of recommendation for wearing vests. Unless you are carrying a plate, most likely your vest is not rated for anything larger than a pistol caliber carbine. Keep your head about you and be aware of where you can find cover going into a situation.
