VRI Amnesty

So if you've been suspended from VRI for 30, 60, 90 days for whatever reasons, the infamous Henny Penny has been offering to wipe the slate clean if you volunteer to work Labor Day weekend.

We have a hard time believing she's still employed. And given any sort of responsibility. She's also the one threatening a CR and a three month suspension from VRI if you scheduled yourself for Labor day and then cancelled for whatever reason - even if it was within the time allotted by Order.

But evidently this is true. We've gotten a few e-mails, a number of comments, and a phone call ourselves. Someone also sent us an audio file that we could listen to of the VRI Office calling to make the offer. We aren't sure how to post audio files, but it's amusing to hear the Department begging this Officer to work.

There's already an Order out cancelling days off for teams. It also states Districts with boxes will be covering the boxes due to the excessively low number of volunteers. That alone should provoke the media into looking at how short handed the Department is.

I was absolutely stunned and very proud when i saw the roster for this weekend. (Recalling from memory) 2Sep , 47 officers ; 3Sep , 27 officers; 4Sep , 38 ; 5Sep 28 officers.

All in all we showed the city that we can stick together. And to the scabs, you should be embarrassed.

Sounds like Labor Day Weekend is going to be a re-make of the Wild West. Enough police presence? Probably not. Lotta shootings? Lotta gunfights?

Another reason to avoid coming into the City for ANY reason.

I saw WGN had Nancy Loo reporting from Buckingham Fountain Thursday about a shooting there.

Buckingham Fountain??? Yep - I'll be going there over the weekend.

All this HAS to be effecting tourism.

Take a break and don't work on the weekend - I don't care. ALL police should have some time off. Forget making money for awhile - your mental health is worth more than ANY amount on a paycheck.

Proud to say that 007 (third watch at least) had a whopping zero P.O's volunteer to work their rdo's for the holiday weekend. The schmucks that work vri or special this weekend are shortsighted and selfish. There is absolutely no worthy excuse.

The Sun-Times is reporting that 40th Ward alder-crook O'Connor is saying 9.5 will hire "hundreds" of officers.

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/emanuel-to-hire-hundreds-of-police-officers-council-ally-says/

"...Ald. Pat O’Connor (40th) said the wave of police hirings tied to the mayor’s 2017 budget is aimed at confronting a severe manpower shortage in the Chicago Police Department that can no longer be addressed with runaway overtime. ..."

The City and Department has been shitting down the throats of cops since I came on the job back in the '80s. And when cops choose to not voluntarily work, the City and Department shits down coppers' throats. If the City and Department could figure out a way to not pay coppers time 1 and 1/2 for working their days off it would surely happen, in the continual effort to shit down coppers' throats. Fuck the City, the Department and the community activists who caused this anti-police atmosphere. Spend time with your family, kids, partner or just sit in the backyard and soak up the sun with a cool drink in your hand. You deserve it to yourself.

You work to live, not live to work.

Any person who signed up despite the month+ advanced warning not to, seriously has serious psychiatric problems, and is not on the side of his fellow policemen with a Union. Seriously??!!! You couldn't take a few days off from Overtime? A couple days of the year is really going to make or break you?!!! Embarrassing whoever those people are. I don't think it was asking for much to stick together, but now we'll hear all the excuses in the book from these people, "Oh, I didn't know" or "It was too late I already put in for the day." Excuses, excuses, excuses. The FOP and your fellow members asked for a few lonely days to stay home with yourself or your family supporting the cause and making a statement, and you couldn't even do that.

Up till now, I've heard a lot of union bashing going on. "Why doesn't the FOP DO SOMETHING about (fill in the blank).

Now, the FOP is doing something. Asking P.O.'s not to work special or volunteer to work their RDO if they fall over the Labor Day holiday.

Now all I hear is "Why are they asking ME to give up extra money?"

So, there in lies the problem. Everyone WANTS the FOP to do something as long as it doesn't AFFECT THEM in the pocket book.

SCC - Take the mayor's Head AlderAss & trot him onto the media to proclaim that next year"s budget has funds to hire more police. Do we really believe him? Take an exempt member who in all her stunts sexually harasses a male officer. She gets demoted to Captain. She's hidden in a closet by two Supernintendos. Next black Supt. makes her a unit CO and she proceeds to screw that up with her bullying tactics. A mayor who meets with rhymefest and again sells out the officers involved when he decrees that discipline will be imposed. And of course, our media dutifully reports the city's version of events and adds a lunatic priest condemning a union leader to eternal flames.

I'd like to think that the people working VRI this weekend aren't scabs, but actually still believe that they can help the citizens of chicago. Remember, the people who hate the police really believe that the only reason someone would want to become the police is to bully people and carry a gun and a baton.
I as a civilian and family to multiple police believe the majority of the police want to work, lets face it, you're not going to get rich or famous (although some do both like Farina) but it's an important job and one that's appreciated by a larger percentage of civilians then admit it.
I"m not saying sign up, just that it's not a strike, or a slow down, but you guys are your only real friends,and you need to remember that some of us really still believe the altruistic reasons to wade through the shit you do.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-rahm-emanuel-chicago-police-hiring-met-0903-20160902-story.html

He is saying here its an "investment in neighborhoods"that is needed which means more "friends and family" money pay-offs. Rahm learned from the clintons well the "lying game" why are the taxpayers and the revs not marching constantly at every event he attends? The blood is flowing, the taxpayers on the hook for hundreds of millions in free cfd transportation, free hospital care as rahm is driven around in his vast fleet of brand new armored vehicles, driven by overpaid valets! Rahm wants bodyguards fine, he can hire his friends at digby security for $12.00 an hour and they can chauffeur his ass in a Toyota Prius instead of having out of control overtime and allowing his anointed valets that huge pension dip at sergeants and commanders pay rate. On that subject kenny hauser fire stopped the gold braid payoff years ago remember you were "going to look into that?" At the end of that long wine glass can you see straight yet?

Graduation wouldn't teach your son anything that would help him. It's not some magical ceremony whereby one is officially bestowed with the gift of being a police officer. It's just a ceremony. Graduation ceremonies have been postponed until after people are out in the districts for a while now. It all depends on when the mayor feels like showing up. Your son will be fine. You should've told your son not to be the police in a place like Chicago in the first place. You've seen this job turn to shit over the past 25 years, especially over the last 2-3 years. There has to be some other job out there, or some nice suburb that needs police. I just don't understand how someone can take this job today. I wish them the best of luck.

9/02/2016 07:48:00 AM

Cute post, Lt. We can't lose all the overtime. The reason the overtime exists is to mask the manpower shortage. The only way the overtime goes anywhere is if we hire thousands of police. That's not happening, so the various overtime initiatives will continue indefinitely. The only valid reason for working overtime over these next few days is that you're a selfish asshole who likely lives beyond your means and who doesn't care about the safety of your fellow officers. This is an effort to highlight the extreme manpower shortage we have, which is a huge safety issue for officers and citizens alike. Your excuses do nothing to help anyone. As for your idiotic comment about posting with your real name and unit, I'll do that when you and the scabs you're defending do. Lead by example, or shut the fuck up. When one of us gets hurt or killed because we don't have enough police out there to back each other up safely, I'd love to hear what you have to say. Regular citizens are already under attack every day in previously quiet areas of the city. You don't seem to get it. If no one signed up for any overtime initiatives, the city would be forced to hire more police. We won't ever see that happening, but that's what's needed. People know the salary when they take this job. Excuses about financial problems don't fly with me. Cut costs somewhere or find outside employment that doesn't help the city hide its dangerously low manpower. I bet you're a merit Lt, since you lack the ability to figure any of this out. Maybe you're one of the cheaters. I bet there's some Lt somewhere that volunteered for VRI this weekend... is that you?

Hate to tell you but the city has been doing that for a while now. At least 3 years. A lot of new PPOs go through graduation at least weeks, if not months after they have been in a district already. My guess is that the city does this to save money so that they can clump as many recruits from multiple classes into one graduation. Also to show that they are hiring a lot more than it looks.

I've never heard of this and I feel bad for these kids. I've been on the job for 25 years and I hope these kids are going to be ok. I'm voicing how I feel as a father and not as a police officer. I know they're going to be okay. It just sucks that they're not going to graduate these kids officially before sending them to their districts

That's an outrage don't they realize how much of a liability they are not to mention their own safety. Fuck this department and city!!

If Rahm's hires for officers mirror his hires for all the new civilians then it's going to be mostly "community" members that he hires.
If the majority of these hires are of one race how can that be considered diversity??

I signed up for VRI this weekend knowing I didn't have the requisite activity. I checked two days ago and sure enough the officer deployment page clearly stated "insufficient activity". But today I get a phone call from Special Events.....I laughed and rejected that call. Now I'm drunk. GO CUBS.

Relax. This has happened before with Emanuel (twice, I think). As usual, Rahm is probably out of town (is he EVER here?) and wants the photo-op at the podium during graduation. So the ceremony will be held at HIS convenience, no one else's.

Henny Penny is still working! II thought she retired and went back to Greece with Andrews.

9/02/2016 07:29:00 AM

1. Penelope isn't Greek. Her ex-husband is Greek. Penelope identifies as black.
2. Did Dean really hightail it to Greece to avoid the investigation? Seriously?

That's how you stick together but be cautious or you'll lose all the great overtime you've been getting. I'm a Lt and support "the real police" just like a lot of other supervisors do but I don't support stupidity or dogasses at any rank.
The boycott showed solidarity regardless of the few that are working. I'm sure they had a valid reason. Leave them alone. Some people have valid financial problems and depend on every source possible. Unless you're willing to post with your real name and Unit, then don't throw stones at someone else.

Well Lt. We ALL have a valid reason - we need the money. But most chose to make a point. I see you didn't post your name or unit.

I hear the mayor wants to hire 300 officers out if next years budget,how about taking 500 or more out of HQ,you cant even park in the lot..

9/02/2016 06:45:00 AM

That doesn't even make up for retirement for this year.


Between our Admin office and our rapidly expanding CAPS office they could easily put 18 of those officers back on the street with no drop off in productivity.
How does this Cmdr. justify hiding all these full duty coppers??

That ceremony is when they bestow magical powers on your child so that he becomes a season vet overnight because his mommy or daddy said it would. I hope he has more intelligence than yourself. Hopefully you are retired or work on the north side where your chances of getting someone killed are nil.

ps no clout 25 yrs on a vet and a worker

9/02/2016 04:53:00 PM

Good job helping the city pretend we don't have a dangerous manpower shortage, Mr. worker. We're all impressed with you "protecting the homeland." 25 years on and you still don't have a clue? Remember when we had 25 districts with fully manned cars, multiple wagons, and rapid response cars in every district? what do you think happened? We now have fewer districts to man, and we still can't even have half the cars manned on a regular basis, we have no rapids, and a beat car doubles as a wagon. You're a fool and a selfish prick just looking for an excuse. You're working for the money, not to protect anyone or anything. Fuck you.

Your probably a boss who cares for most of the kiss asses that surround you, who tell you what a great guy your are; that being said, when we ask for TD or try to switch a day off probably one of those who go alone with the powers to be and refuse approving the TD. This has caused people to use the medical to get off, faking IOD's and I think you get the picture. So we the little guy come up with a plan to eliviate some of these problem and your worried about a few dick heads that need the money and fuck the rest.

Either you worked in a hole inside our have a bad memory, sending ppos out to the districts to start working then having their graduation a few weeks later has been a normal practice for at least the past 11 years that I know of. Ceremony is just a formal thing, they already have what they really want, a badge and a gun sworn in and ready to get out on the street and have fun.

I was absolutely stunned and very proud when i saw the roster for this weekend. (Recalling from memory) 2Sep , 47 officers ; 3Sep , 27 officers; 4Sep , 38 ; 5Sep 28 officers.

All in all we showed the city that we can stick together. And to the scabs, you should be embarrassed.

9/02/2016 12:23:00 AM
Be sure and look at the roster again after Monday and see who has the word "worked" behind their name. Oh, and don't forget to look at the other o/t schedules such as parks, etc. Know who the scabs are. Forever.

the in house overtime in 005 got fucked...they changed their starts times from 1530 til 0200 to 1900 to 0530...haha good for for you scabs!

Haha that's real funny, go _uck yourself you goof! So it's fine for the commander to violate the chief's order (the only district in the city). Your so clueless, if some of these copper didn't sign up, they the city/sup would have canceled all our rdo's and we all would be working shitty hours away from our families, no matter what watch you work, so don't laugh, the in house o.t. saved your ass from working _ucked up hours away from your family. Maybe you weren't here when the bull were winning (ask somebody if you don't know) your a real prick and again go _uck yourself.

The above, a jagoff in the third degree. We are finally making a statement about the dangers that exist, and you are worried about losing over-time for yourself and the assholes kissing your butt. Hey Lt., go get fucked.

I'd like to think that the people working VRI this weekend aren't scabs, but actually still believe that they can help the citizens of chicago. Remember, the people who hate the police really believe that the only reason someone would want to become the police is to bully people and carry a gun and a baton.
I as a civilian and family to multiple police believe the majority of the police want to work, lets face it, you're not going to get rich or famous (although some do both like Farina) but it's an important job and one that's appreciated by a larger percentage of civilians then admit it.
I"m not saying sign up, just that it's not a strike, or a slow down, but you guys are your only real friends,and you need to remember that some of us really still believe the altruistic reasons to wade through the shit you do.

And do nothing dog asses for the last 20 years will always be remembered as do nothing dog asses by their fellow coppers. Dog asses cry about everything in order to find an excuse, bosses, contract, pay, schedule, citizens, etc, to not work but bitch like crazy when their check is a dollar short. Yeah the 1st and the 16th dog asses wouldn't last in the real world of work and showing up on time. Once a dog ass, always a dog ass. And these are the same people calling others scabs.
