No Wonder 016 is Short

Last time we checked, 016 doesn't have a lakefront. But they're helping 020 with theirs:
  • Beats 1611 and 1612 have been downed almost every day for the last month. In addition, one beat car is detailed to 020 for their bullshit LSD mission.

    No wagon (unless a beat car is using it on the down low), and no traffic car, for several months.

    Usually 2 additional beat cars are downed as well.
If you recall, we posted a complaint from 020 that they were downing a car to drive up and down LSD with their lights on in some sort of effort to discourage shooters from driving up north to do their dirty business. It hasn't been what you'd call a rousing success, seeing as how shootings are up across the north side. Now we hear about robberies and criminal sexual assaults in 016 while they provide an extra car for 020's unsuccessful nonsense.

Besides lack of man/woman power, the biggest problem with the CPD is poor upper leadership. It appears that the great majority of our upper level leaders achieved their position through a combination of affirmative action, clout/patronage, and merit promotion, without having any objective merit. In other words,the best of the best are not being promoted to high level leadership positions, but dullards are.

Imagine the carnage if they didn't run the cars on LSD?

It would rival the carnage by the murderous concealed carry citizens.
In other words, no change.

You know who came up with this idea of driving LSD. The every loving champion of great ideas CPT PK of 19. He started it all as an LT in 18. It's his baby that makes zero sense What crime has any of these cars stopped or prevented. He should stick to assigning PAPV's and creating useless spread sheets of data

It doesn't matter how many officers are assigned to 016. That district has never been known to reel in high numbers of hard chargers.Although a good number of officers post here about 'come on down, protect the homeland,' in reality it rarely occurs there, and everyone pretty much knows it.

Please post the manpower for each watch in 016. Taxpayers have aright to know. 016 is a huge district. One beat is the size of the 014 th district alone. How come the alder thieves aren't up in arms over this? Didn't the Superintendant promise more manpower? Or did they just assign two new pos to the district?

BINGO, we have a winner at 1230am on 06Sep2016. We have too many in the Command Staff that either do not have a clue, don't care or are simply killing time waiting for their next promotion. I realize that in the past promotion into the Command Staff was clout based but at least most of those promoted in the past were the Police at some time in their careers and had a clue and cared about their people. But not now, now it's all about getting promoted and pretending they know what they are doing. All at the expense of Officers and citizens.

It's doesn't matter who the alderman is, 016 has been getting f**ked by Rahm since he's been in office. We haven't had police service on 1611 or 1612 in years & if you actually need a police car you can argue with the jagoff at OEMC that "Yes, I actually want a beat car & no, I will not use callback". Huge property tax increase and not even the most basic of services & apparently the criminal element has figured that out.

Have you counted how many For Sale signs are on beats 1611 and 1612? Very scary. Anyone who can get out - is getting out.

First day of school today dropping my son off, Oriole Park, and the place was a hot box oven, not even a box fan in sight. I guess the south and west sides have to get their "promised air conditioners for every CPS school" first. Rahm somehow magically came up with hundreds of millions in ghost money to pay for it with. The fact that we pay gargantuan sized taxes in 16, way more than the you know who areas, doesn't mean shit apparently.

I wouldn't call him quiet. He is taking a beating with the OHare noise thing and his continuing fight against the Pot Clinic that No One but Rahm seemed to want in the 41st Ward.

He has also done a fair job with reducing the number of Pimpy tickets that get issued on the really narrow streets (parkway violations for those that haven't pick up their ticket book in years.). He is working on getting some of the Cul de Sacs around Talcott lined by CDOT to allow Diagonal Parking. I also hear that he is working on getting the Redidential Permit Signs updated to get replaced with better condition (read: Nee) for the areas around the Blue Line and Metra Stations that see a lot of commuter traffic that tends to ignore signs.
Plus the No Parking of Semis signs out up recently in Avondale by Harlem and getting missing Rush hour signs replaced on Harlem and more Tow Zone signs near stop signs so you don't get the Stop Sign tickets.

Plus he was a signer on the amendment that got Rid of the Pickup Truck/Van parking permit sticker program (just have your city sticker and don't use your pickup or van for a Side job and your fine.)

He is battling up hill both ways in the Council and the Committee he is on. He is trying harder than the last 2 Aldermen did.

Hey Tony Napolitano - Why waste time going to see Special Ed with Ald. Sposato? You know he will merely say what you want to hear and proceed to screw you. Put this problem directly where it lays - 5th floor of City Hall. And if you step on the tiny ballerina's toes, so be it. One positive effect is that your stature in the 41st Ward will rise. You can be to RAHM what Ald. Leon Depres was to the real Mayor Daley back in the 70's. This will be far more crucial to your constituents than airport noise, a pot clinic, or parking issues! Do we really need to go to a police funeral due to unfair/unsafe staffing issues?

I didn't vote for Napolitano, but I wish I did. For all of the pro-police events that I know of and attended, he was there. So I believe he has our backs. And when the McDonald video came out and everyone hated us, he stood up for us, take a look - he spoke for us when no one else would: https://www.facebook.com/Chicago41/videos/1642329682707305/

And I work up here now, where we are all lazy coppers. I spent 2 years in 015 and 18 years in 025 before I bid to 016. Dogs in all of the districts I have worked in. We are spread pretty thin in 016, where if I get in a jam there may be suburban coppers that get to me sooner than CPD, and it's not as slow as some of you think. We are trying up here, but our hands are tied; just like the rest of you.

If you live in 016 and you have any reason to call me on my cell, call 911 first, get it on the tapes that we need police service. I tell that to all of my customers, to call 911 and request a car and let us figure it out. It's not easy, you all know that we can't challenge people the way we used to. But calling 911 and laying down some reasonable suspicion or PC on the tapes helps.

Anthony Napolitano - Time for you to take a stand and answer the 5-11 alarm for more staffing in 016&017!!! Unless you want to be remembered as our version of Barney Fife (and that means not deputizing Gomer, Floyd, and Otis!!!). If you want our support at the next Council Meeting let us know and we'll be there. Are you waiting for a home invasion or child abduction before you act?

Napolitano did more in his first month than O'Connor did in her entire term. She was beyond useless. He is doing a great job and has called the city out about the lack of police here. He did organize a meeting with the superintendent that the community was invited to attend, but not a lot of people attended. His job isn't easy. He's doing the best he can and I think he's doing a great job.

All of the aldermen are powerless against this mayor

They are not powerless.

They are corrupt cowards.

CPD is short money to hire coppers but the command staff keeps getting bigger. Ever notice how these upper echelon slugs retire and then get another government spot and another lucrative pension. ♠️

Wtf! Where the fuck is Napolitano?...

Plus he was a signer on the amendment that got Rid of the Pickup Truck/Van parking permit sticker program (just have your city sticker and don't use your pickup or van for a Side job and your fine.)

He is battling up hill both ways in the Council and the Committee he is on. He is trying harder than the last 2 Aldermen did.

The special work van sticker has been eliminated? That's not a positive for our area. We once had 10-12 white vans parking on our block per night. Got the beat officer to hand out tickets for a few weeks and about half the owners were too cheap to buy them and started parking elsewhere. The van owners had garages, but that's where they parked their high end cars leaving the work vans in front of their neighbors' houses. Hope they don't discover the ordinance has changed.

Re designate LSD as a state road, and let ISP patrol it. More teeth than CPD in traffic court.

And per GO you would still have to cover it because its inside the City Limits.

Dear Neighbor,
Yesterday, I met with Chicago Police Superintendent Johnson and 1st Deputy Superintendent Navarro along with Alderman Nick Sposato (38), Alderman John Arena (45) and Alderman Gilbert Villegas (36) to discuss recent crimes in the 016th District and the need for more police officers. I am happy to report that we have been guaranteed a large number of PO's assigned to 016 District in October, then another large number of PO's assigned to 016 in December. We were also promised that the bids into the 016th District will be quadrupled during the next bid period and will stay consistent the next couple of bid periods. Finally, we were promised that all assigned PO's and the number PO's who bid into 016 will be adjusted properly to the current rate of attrition in the 016 District.
I am very thankful to Superintendent Johnson and 1st Deputy Superintendent Navarro for their willingness to address our concerns.

Sincerely,

Anthony Napolitano
41st Ward Alderman

Yes. Was announced in April in various media outlets, on the City Clerks FB page and via all wards when you might have gone in to get the one you thought you were going to need for 2016/17. Have City Sticker that isn't Expired, no worries about that darn ticket.

Let your City Sticker expire or you've been registering your Van or Pickup to a Suburb and you are a Target for ticketing.

FYI: That Pickup/Van permit was not meant for Work Vehicles. Never was. Thats why it was gotten rid of, it was abused.

Thanks for that info. What tickets can be written for white work vans? They are obviously not passenger vehicles. My beat officer isn't sure. Yes, he writes tickets, but only when citizens complain.

Well, I guess it's a good thing only one district is short on manpower. When are the aldermen from the other shorthanded areas going to have their meeting with the department? When do the other police and good citizen neighborhoods get their much-needed manpower?

How do you quadruple the bids from 0? 4*0=0

The bids will then stay consistent over the next couple of bid periods. So, more zeroes?

That would be helpful info. Starting to see a lot more of these types of work vans in 025. And some of the people driving these seem to be acting like the know they can be ticketed anymore since the permit is no longer issued or required or whatever..

Never thought I would say this, but I'd have thought that Revenue Bike guy would have had a answer for this by now.
