10-99 Units Returning

  • Chicago police officers no longer have to work in pairs, as department leaders Friday announced said they would lift the order imposed after attacks in Dallas and Baton Rouge, La., killed eight officers in July.

    All units will be returning to regular deployment as of Monday, after the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to a Chicago Police Department statement. Officials blamed the partner requirement for slower response times to incidents in the city during a particularly violent summer.

Thank God, again if your afraid to work alone go to afternoons or midnights. Being 10-4 made it much more dangerous. Constantly in a RAP, all the dogs laying down on jobs for hours (which is fine) unless you are the one car up going from one end of the district to the other. 18 car available is always better than 5 or 6

When it comes to responding to calls, just follow the general orders / special orders. DO NOT RESPOND ALONE to domestics, in-progress calls, just-occurred calls, disturbances, etc. by yourself. REQUEST and WAIT for BACKUP / ASSISTANCE.

Your safety comes first. Your safety comes before the citizen's request for service.

Don't get hurt. Don't get hungry. Don't get wet.

Someone somewhere loves you. Make sure to go home at the end of your shift.

If Rahm and the powers-that-be really cared about you, there would be enough manpower for all the beat cars, and the pension would be 80-100 percent funded. the facts that we do not have enough manpower, that Rahm would rather pay you overtime (thereby taking you away from your loved ones) than pay for more manpower, and the deplorable state of the pension fund, should tell you everything you need to know about how much Rahm and the democratic party care about you. The fact that the powers-that-be would rather pay out millions in lawsuits while sacrificing you to the media instead of spending those millions on training should tell you more about how concerned they are about you going home safely at night.

Know, learn, practice, and play by the rules of the game.

Be safe.

As stated

Wow...that's rich. Rich with contempt and lack of concern for any officer's safety. Maybe this is so that the 16th District can have six cars up in the largest district in the city instead of three. Is that 9.5's real concern to smoke and mirror the community who pay some of the highest taxes that there are six cars up instead of three. On those "particularly violent" calls a lone officer should not approach alone anyway. Therefore two cars down on that job.

Why are the lives of officers in the 16 district so much less important than those assigned elsewhere. Maybe the spouses and loved ones of those officers could show a measurement of support like walk around the 16 district with signs DEMANDING the same working conditions for their their loved ones as in other districts. Maybe they should call their aldermen...chambers of commerce....girl scout troops....boy scout troops.....flash mob aerobic dancers....and the such to join in the support at the 16 district. These are the people who pay for police presence in their neighborhood while the officers assigned there are sent elsewhere. To places that have six times the number of officers.

Officer safety should be more of a concern of this administration.

I blame the extreme manpower shortage for slower response times, but I have a brain. "Officials" are hoping the citizens don't. More cars is great, but it doesn't do much if they're all one-man cars. Most of the time, unless it's just a simple car accident, or some paper job at the hospital, you'll need two cars to go because it's unsafe for a one-man car to go alone. We all know the "I'll advise" line to make it a one-man job, but that shouldn't be happening. If they're sending two officers, take the assist. No reason to help hide the manpower shortage. Be safe and be smart.

All it means is more money spent on gas as Squad consistently assigns backup to 99 units for most calls. So it just means POs are always driving from beat to beat. During these long-haul commutes in the larger, thinner districts I doubt the police presence zooming by counts as "deterrence" and certainly can't be proactive policing.

Extremely bad idea.
Just another scam for the city to 'save' money.
Instead of hiring more officers, they're risking lives by sending one cop per call.
Considering police are targets, that SOB, Rahm and cohorts don't give a crap about officers' lives, 'which do matter.'
After all, it's not Rahm who is 'visiting' the west and south sides. He's safely tucked inside a cozy office. What does he do again? Mayor?
Stay fetal. Stay safe.

Funny, our district started a week earlier, based on e-mails and supposed conversations with gold stars, who promised other gold stars that it was over for the 6th, otherwise we only would have had been able to men the 5 school cars we have, but NEVER saw anything in writing.

I'm still waiting to see the AFMN message officially telling us it's over. If only the exempts would read the order on e-mail it might help a little. Now we have personal e-mail, WOL/DSS e-mail, district inbox, document management system, C/O book, and a host of other places to look to try to find any information.

Hey 0200PM I don't think the 2 man car during hours of darkness is memorialized in an order. It's a long time stated policy that in effect has become a contractual right due to the past practice and savings clause of the existing contract. Now a hundred idiots will say how wrong I am perhaps even some fop officials, but if you ask an attorney familiar with labor law he can set you straight. This policy started after Kenny Kaner was killed in 007 and I believe PO Wensel was killed on lake shore drive. At that time on the third watch we sometimes started out as a one man car and around 2000 (during summer longer daylight) we got called in and doubled up. I often thinks that sometime officers casually give up hard fought rights. After the shooting I mentioned, the wives and girlfriends of PO,s demonstrated at 007 and blocked squads from leaving the lot, demanding 2 man vehicles. The then commander (believe his name was Miles) got dumped for manhandling the ladies while he had a cigarette dangling from his mouth with his blouse open.

I don't know that there is any actual evidence that 2 man cars are safer. It might make some coppers feel safer, without actually doing so.

They are right. More 10-4 cars with low manpower proved we didn't have enough cars to safely respond to calls especially since we gave to respond to an abundance of bs calls. If our union president wasnt such a idiot then he'd use those numbers to our advantage.

For you "stay fetal" losers. Maybe when your family calls for help and the "stay fetal" cops don't respond then you'll know how stupid you really sound.
Stay knowledgeable to your directives and do your job. If the bad guys escapes then so what. Stop chasing hot cars or any fleeing cars. Give a flash, they'll be parked sooner or later.
