Cameras

  • Chicago officials have decided to expand the use of police-worn body cameras throughout the city following a pilot program that began in 2015 but has raised questions about whether officers always turn on the devices.

    Police Supt. Eddie Johnson is expected to announce Sunday that all 22 police districts will be equipped with body cameras for every officer on every shift. The number of cameras will rise from 2,000 now to about 7,000 by 2018. The expansion is expected to cost $8 million, paid for through city funding and grants.

    The pilot program began in January 2015 in the Shakespeare District on the Northwest Side. This year, the department expanded the program to the Austin, Wentworth, Deering, Ogden, South Chicago and Gresham districts.

    “Body cameras have proven to be a valuable tool in promoting departmental accountability and trust while providing a firsthand look into the dangerous situations Chicago police officers face every day to protect our communities,” Johnson said.
In addition to no cameras on the mayor's detail, we heard there won't be cameras at CompStat, at HQ and not at any promotional testing sites or secret study groups.

Yes! Please bring the cameras to every district so this way everyone else can slow down with the proactive shit.

Remember. Those cameras are there to watch you not them and don't think for a second that someone isn't reviewing them to Monday morning quarterback you.

The corrupt mayor emanuel should have to wear a body camera then. He works for the taxpayers too. If he wants to preach transparency so much then lead by example and stop being such a shady, typically-corrupt hypocrite.

So, what he's saying is that there are only 7,000 officers and sergeants (they have to wear the cameras too) working the streets in patrol?? Across three shifts?? Counting day-off groups, medical sickness, injured on duties, furloughs, three watches, the 15% allowed off everyday, and we are hoving around maybe 2,000 officers patrolling the streets of a city with about 2 million people and an estimated 150,000 gang members??? There's the reason why shootings are up, clearances are down, morale is down......

With body cameras all shootings, murders and acts of terrorism will cease. The feds encourage, mandate and then fund such cameras. If these cameras are so good, how come they don't wear them? And when will the federal government release their findings of their shootings along with all associated videos? The feds cannot be sued in their shootings and they are above scrutiny by community activists, pastors and civil rights coalitions. Double standard? Absolutely. Let the feds have their good names smeared like the lowly non-federal law enforcement and I will submit to you there is a level playing field.

Body cameras work every time they are tried. Just ask the defense attorneys, civil trial lawyers,the radical subversive hate America crowd and the George Soros funded organizations.

Don't trust the videos to exonerate your actions when faced with members of the public who have no respect for authority and have a consistent track record of breaking civilized society's rules. Too many people are trying to make money off your actions through civil suits. The police oversight organizations seek to maintain and justify their lucrative positions seizing opportunities to criticize police in the face of overwhelming on the spot ignorance. The gold star bosses are lapdogs for political figureheads. The top bosses will sacrifice you to get to the next rung in the chain of command. Sworn police doing actual police work are just pawns in so many hustles.

After all they all can be lethal, so I say film everything, more work for lawyers, which is what every cop in this department has become.

Unfortunately the law has a bizarre twist to it that exempts these recordings from the FOI act.

I think Rush could ask for it and release it but no one else can.

These assholes; city officials should have been paying for replacement vests. Instead of the Memorial Foundation (by the way I got a very nice letter from Art Hannus for mine which I treasure) having to go hat in hand for the funds.

Secondly, I was always told and stopped believing years ago thanks to SCC that CPS strength was 13,500. It seems like 7,000 is more likely a truthful number afterall which I was also suspicious of. But reglardless, I think we will start seeing the community portrayed by themselves in the manner that is supported by the violence statistics every Monday morning.

The problem with the violence is the Cook County Judicial system, not the police. If Toni's boys are out on the street, there will be crime in the neighborhoods. If they are in jail, crime will be in jail. The reason why this is not understood is because the poor leaders of this city, state and county value those who produce the crime as voting blocks. So what is it again cameras will do?

It would have been a good idea to put cameras on those working at 35th Street. But that has not prevented the IG from actually uncovering proof of a cheating scandal on the Lieutenant's exam. Yes folks, it is true, and when it is made public, the fall out will be significant. Its far reaching up and down. Some will be charged criminally because they have profited from the cheating and some will be fired. If you accepted the promotion, and you cheated, you are getting locked up. If you cheated, and not yet gotten promoted, you will be fired.

Much of what has been assumed here is true, some is not. What is true is that the cheating occurred, proof has been obtained and heads will roll.

Although you are correct, each officer is assigned his/her own camera. My camera is docked and charging when I'm not at work and is assigned to me, labeled with my star number on the back. They aren't like the radios which are used by all watches, the number of cameras does reflect the number of officers who will be using them.

Charlie @ 10:03am - The vendor has already been selected: Axon, a subsidiary of Taser, Intl. who has good ol' Uncle Terry Hillard as an employee since he retired and also had time to organize a highly paid consulting firm, Hillard & Heinze. One of H & H latest hires is none other than the IAD Witch Debra Kirby. She recently returned from Ireland, where she plied her trade as a house cleaner for their police force.
Does the DOJ have any interest in reviewing how Axon got the contract, since the program is partially funded with federal grants?
Of course, but US Atty. Zachary Fardon is too busy indicting officers from an incident three years ago while Loretta Lynch tries to cover up the incident with the black panther who tried to run over the tree Phoenix officers as well as the shooting in Phildelphia which wounded two officers. There's no race war until a white officer shoots another blm advocate.

The body camera aren't given out to multiple officers, one camera per officer and they are permanently assigned to that officer. They are handed in to be charged at the end of the tour. They aren't like radios. So the person talking about only 7,000 officers has some validity.

Come to 025 where the PPO's drag their FTO. Who's heard of am FTO that's not allowed to be with recruits?

"Back in the day..." Yeah I know when an old wobblie starts a tale like that, the Gel heads run for the Starbucks. But, we had all kinds of talent on the job. Guys that worked for the telephone company automatically went to the Intelligence Division, stuff like that. But, clever guys. Some even started writing a blog on paper, called the "Gallows." Drove downtown nuts. There are some that believe they migrated to computers, and the bosses weren't any more pleased with that, since it gained a larger audience.

Hence, a positive spin on body cameras. There's got to be a few technically inspired folk capable on downloading the more interesting interactions between the police and the fine denizens that occupy our preferred turf. "CPDTV" would be a reality show hit! The highly trained bosses would never be able to I.D the creators. Give it a shot.

Uh, you DO know we don't take the cameras home and wear them for 24hrs, right?
They are shared equipment. Every single officer does not get one camera.
(More like, one camera gets used by two to three officers in a 24hr period.)
You DO know they get taken off and handed to the next shift, right?

Completely wrong. Learn a thing or two about what you are talking about before you open you're mouth & spread bad info. It's basically impossible to share cameras.

You're obviously one of the smartest ones in your district. How about the fact that there are 3 watches...not everyone works at the same time. I know that math may be a hard subject for you while you're sitting on your ass shoving pastries in your mouth...but think before you speak, you'll seem a whole helluva lot less stupid.

It would have been a good idea to put cameras on those working at 35th Street. But that has not prevented the IG from actually uncovering proof of a cheating scandal on the Lieutenant's exam. Yes folks, it is true, and when it is made public, the fall out will be significant. Its far reaching up and down. Some will be charged criminally because they have profited from the cheating and some will be fired. If you accepted the promotion, and you cheated, you are getting locked up. If you cheated, and not yet gotten promoted, you will be fired.

Much of what has been assumed here is true, some is not. What is true is that the cheating occurred, proof has been obtained and heads will roll.

bug on the wall.

There is a thing called a pension, which some of us would like to receive. You need 20 years for that. I also didn't see any crying. Maybe you should just keep quiet until someone asks you for your worthless opinion.

Since we all know HQ staff and the Media read this blog:


Cameras for all Command Staff 1st.
Cameras for all Captains and Lieutenants Second
Cameras for all Sgt's and non- Patrol Division Police Third. Especially the house mouses and CAPs officers and other Inside hidden job cops. Make those Cops be required to run the video for the Full Shift except for when in the Bathroom or Locker Rooms.

Total the number purchased.

Then Outfit the Patrol Cops.


I'll Offer to run the Video Storage for the CPD. 25 bucks per Quarter Hour of video storage per day. 500 hours pre-paid up front for 30 days. 12 month contract minimum. I'd even drop to 17.50$ per quarter hour but I want the full 12 months up front with an Option for a 5 year contract at 18.75$ per quarter hour for every year of the 5 year contract.

You can reach me at City Hall downstairs by the Bike Room.

Regards,

You know who.

What do you want to bet, the cameras that CPD get, will have some sort of tracer package to alert management if it is downloaded via an Unapproved by CPD device?

If you have the ability to review the footage on the camera without a computer...carry a smart phone and record the live stream.

I would absolutely LOVE to see the desk wear cameras! Most of them treat people like they're wasting their time by coming in for a report. Between playing on their phones, logged into facebook and personal calls I swear they shouldn't even get paid for being there!

The news media thinks that cameras are going to show everything. Only show one angle. It will provide the media with cheap fill for their shows while they run the one sided report. Makes their job easy and the police job impossible.

What the whole camera issue says is that the press and the city do not trust you in the least.

No one in the media is talking about the on going costs of these cameras. Forget hiring.

Someone said earlier in the post that the cameras are to watch you, not them. Well, DON'T EVER FORGET THAT! These cameras are being worn to gather evidence of any wrong doing or the appearance of any wrongdoing committed by you. Remember the nonsense procedural justice training. Even if you are technically doing things right if the "citizen" feels harmed in any way you will be held accountable. They will use the adage that you did not show "due respect that all citizens are entitled to receive." Remember, stay fetal and protect yourself. From a long time white shirt who knows what he is talking about.

Tracer package? If that costs one penny extra, just one, it will not be included.

Yes, 20 years. Here's some interesting reading for you about your pension, and why 20 years is what we all aim for:

"Q: Approximately how much more would I receive if I retired after accruing 20 years, versus 19 years 11 months?
A: CURRENTLY, APPROXIMATELY $2,000 PER MONTH ($3,500 vs $1,500) PAYABLE FOR LIFE. In addition, if you are only eligible to receive a Money Purchase Annuity, you will NOT be eligible for future cost of living annual increases."

That's with one month shy of 20 years. You'd make $2000 less per month than someone who retires after 20 years of service. That number doesn't look any better with less than 19 years and 11 months on. So you enjoy your "pension" after 10 years. The rest of us will still be holding out for the real pension at 20 years.
