Bribe the FTO's!

So Don O'Neil (and the Department) screwed over the applicants for the FTO position recently.

Now they're offering another FTO Exam in order to screw over a whole new list of people. But coppers aren't taking the bait this time - the Department has extended the deadline three or four times already in an effort to drum up interest in being lied to and getting screwed over once again.

They are so desperate, they are now offering bribes:
  • As an incentive to become a police officer assigned as a field training officer, the Department will offer the following incentives:
    • FTO's will be issued a tablet.
    • FTO's will be given priority for use of new cars on their watch.
    • FTO's will be allowed to choose their day off groups.
    • FTO's will be given priority to receive training.
    • FTO's will be given consideration for their desired starting times on their watch.
    • FTO's will be priority to test and evaluate new equipment and uniform components.
    • FTO's will be given consideration for their desired beat assignment or rapid response car.
Wow, that's a lot of incentive. A few questions though:
  • This tablet - will it be a top of the line brand name tablet? Or one of those no-name refurbish jobs? And will it come pre-installed with NetFlix or similar?
  • New cars? Day Off Groups? Big deal.
  • Training? How are they going to go to training if they're....training new cops? You're going to pull them off the street for a week at a time to finally get rifle training? Or 40 hours of Procedural Justice? Or 40 hours of CIT? Or is that only after you run out of recruits?
  • Starting times? Big deal.
  • Test equipment? Not if the Commander's favorites are already getting that.
  • Desired beat? Big deal.
We also notice the word "consideration" and "priority" appearing a lot. That is a far cry from the word "guarantee." And we here at SCC can "guarantee" if you accept any of this, you'll be screwed over as soon as Don O'Neil thinks he can do it.

I'll become an FTO if they strip the same title off of that goof that works in 015 on 3rd watch. For a guy with over 30 years on the job he sounds like a complete moron on the air. Asking for a callback on an hour old gang disturbance, even though the air is busy with shootings and homicides. It is sad when people don't know when to pull the plug. It is also sad when they take the bus to work and pester their ppo's for rides home.

The job literally doesn't have any "perks/benefits" unless you're clouted. Just answer your calls, stay alert, and go home to your family. That's my "priority." It's just a job. The politicians and bosses ripped the pride right out of this job. Who gives a f about picking your start time? Is two hours going to be that much different? Ooooo priority for all that great training we get. What f'ing incentive do we get to be cut certified or rifle qualified? All I see is the incentive not to get it so I'm not on a law suit. Go f yourself Rahm. I hope you burn in hell

Oh wait...
Are they going to "consider" letting the FTOs
who can walk and chew gum without falling over
come to the academy and be HRIs?

You know...
The same damned lie(s) they told back in 1999/2000
to generate interest?

(Only to have FTOs resign en masse when the
Department allowed district commanders to
fuck up the yearly watch selection of '00 and call
to f(l)op went unanswered)

Word was ol' Claudell (and other commanders)
royally showing his/their ass over guys
giving up the "Lance Corporal" chevron
and rocker.

Almost 20 years later and they're STILL
on the same lies and bullshit about the FTO
program.

The culture of the command echelon is
poisonous beyond belief.

And if Coppers still refuse to bite on O'Neal's bullshit,
watch for the command echelon to go punitive for
being "embarrassed" by the rank and file...

Priority for training? The entire 5 week FTO class can be summed up in one word: Descalation! From CIT, force mitigation, procedural justice, blue courage, etc...FTOs were given a one hour course on how to be an FTO and that came in the second to last day in the academy and even that was pretty much taught by one of the POs attending the class...(who had been an FTO in the past)
Training? All the instructors with exception to the a couple courses were unprepared to even teach any type of lessons. One Sgt ( who I'm personally fund of) never even should up to teach the one class of use of force that was supposed to be given. That was the case the whole time. I know the class was made on a short notice but damn...and don't get me started on the older female Hispanic civilian instructor who butchers the English language..

I was a FTO two superintendents ago. I was at the academy for FTO refresher class. The ADS Howard the coward was sitting next to me and he was worried, because numerous FTO's had jumped ship because they got screwed over in assignments i.e.; promised to go back to Dist of assignment , dumped to midnights and rotating start times. So Howard makes a statement.

" on the next FOP contract the city will give FTO's the following "

1- D2A pay
2- One merit promotion in every Detective and Sgt class to a FTO
3- 5 Additional points on any test

Now this sounded sooooooo good that I Told Howard.
If you bullshit us I'm cutting of these fake ass stripes!
We'll I've been without that whooping extra one dollar a hour raise for over 5 years now. And the city still could care less about PPO's or FTO's or anything that has a real impact on the future of this department. Why ? ! A very small percentage of bosses, less than 1 percent have been FTO's and they look down at the position as a required hinderance to their budget !

That is a very smart response. The tablet will be for work purposes. All FTO's are probably getting tablets. This is going so badly that they might assign people by reverse seniority. I have enough time to dodge that bullet. Even at Detective's pay, the job is not worth it.

Priority on Training? Does that mean you would be like one of the Anointed Ones who Already Have Priority on Training in addition to Knowing when special training will be offered in advance so they can coordinate it with their furloughs? How about this one: When Weiss was Supt. they were thinking of offering FTO's, a certain number of points on promotional exams. But of course that idea was quickly dropped, since it made too much sense! FTO is one of the most important jobs in the entire Police Department. It is also one of the most dangerous, especially with the New Breed of Recruits who have had their asses kissed throughout their time in the Academy; they are "Entitled" and devoid of Humility or Respect for senior officers. To have one of these "Know it Alls" as your partner is a roll of the dice chance you will find yourself on your own if you encounter trouble. These New Recruits have been told they are smarter and better than any other Blue Shirt, and by the way, if you see a guy with grey hair in a blue shirt, he obviously must be a Loser since he was never promoted. The New Breed have been told they have an obligation to rat out other cops, and to have no respect for other cops with experience and time on the job. The Instructors at the Academy for the most part are out of touch with reality, having been in hiding for most if not all of their careers. Let me suggest that they swear in FBI agents, or ACLU lawyers to come down and act as FTOs in Englewood and Austin. Nobody understands the Law and the world like a Liberal Democrat Party Lawyer, Draft them as FTOs, because like the new recruits; They Know it All! Stay Fetal, Do Absolutely Nothing, and I mean Nothing more than answer your radio and watch out for each other! Fu%K Rahm, do everything possible to stop him from a Third Term. And God help us when Hillary wins, because she hates cops more than even Rahm! Remember: Stay Fetal. Baby"G"

Who the F*@ck needs a tablet these guys make almost 100 k a year. That would be like the City offering a Doctor free rubber gloves.

Yet RAHM will trick a few poor saps. These saps will signs a piece of paper bring it to FOP 7 and cry about why the city lied to them and gave them 4 recruits in a squad old squad car. They will cry about the can't work day anymore! They will babble about they can only bid to shit districts.

This program has always been the unwanted step-child of the police department. I believe that in the late 70's the temp sergeants (story for another day) were given the training officer position, then followed by the patrol specialist and then the field training officer as a re-invented patrol specialist. The city has flipped on training districts more often then a dying fish. Despite the promises no real perks or benefits. Everyone sees the empty promises over the years and gets tired of getting jerked around. You really want more officers involved? Guarantee a couple of FTO's merit sergeant or detective spots each promotion cycle, but that would take spots from the clouted or house cats. Never happen.

How many bites of the apple is don taking? He was a clown wearing the gold badge and he is still the same, now drawing a huge pension and another 6 figure salary plus a brand new police spec vehicle and a driver if he desires! So many people destroying every aspect of policing, look at the medical care taken from retirees, the big question is our pension board gave multi-millions to daleys nephews to invest and they lost that, wow bet that money could of helped the retirees survive better but then again democratic control does not care, as evidenced by all the illegal invaders streaming over the border freely they are now getting free health care, housing,food,schooling,phones,monthly stipend drivers licenses,along with a stolen security number for some! hillary is upping the refugee criminals many from terrorists countries by 900%.

That's a lot of free stuff.
Tablet? - Like the one that dissolves in water for Kool Aid.
New vehicle? - Try and find the keys in the Community Policing office first.
Choose a Day off Group? - That one is already overfilled, sorry. Maybe next period.
Priority Training? - Wow, guaranteed front row at Police Legitamacy 8.0?
Watch start time? - See Choose a Day Off Group.
Test new equipment? - We'll be getting these soon, the same as one George Jetson used.
Beat Assignment? - Can't put you there in your DOG or Start Time, maybe next period.

Go ahead Donkey Punch ONeil...promise the moon too.
Show me a WC anywhere who doesn't run his own Watch.
Even the most spineless have their favorites and every Watch has their seasoned veterans who will not take a back seat to some 3 year wonder boy or girl coming from another District.

They've tried this all before...maybe they think all the previous FTO's have long retired by now.
I wonder why the didn't include the phrase that pays, "Being an FTO is a stepping stone and fast track priority to Sergeant" or "FTO's will make Rank because (yada-yada)".

Don't take the bait for the above false promises, you will be soured even more than you are now in your current shit district.

They need to give them a pay bump.Its a horrible job I was close to applying 5 years ago but they never stated how district assignments would be determined so I didn't apply.They want to run the program on the cheap and will have what they have now 3-4 yrs. Experience fto's training recruits a recipe for epic fuckery.

Choice of car? You get the one w/o A cage, if one is available.
Choice of beat, start time? No, kid. Guys on their beat will keep their beat, after that preference goes to a 3 man (DOG spread) team. After them, you can pick what's left.
New gear? Only if you know someone.
Tablet? Sure, and make sure you fill out your DOR's during the shift on it, so you don't need to drop those 1/2 hour slips anymore.

I'll become an FTO if they strip the same title off of that goof that works in 015 on 3rd watch. For a guy with over 30 years on the job he sounds like a complete moron on the air. Asking for a callback on an hour old gang disturbance, even though the air is busy with shootings and homicides. It is sad when people don't know when to pull the plug. It is also sad when they take the bus to work and pester their ppo's for rides home.
10/21/2016 12:14:00 AM

This is the same guy that got a C.R. on an off duty copper that was working security at a Home Depot in 014 several years ago. The FTO hated doing shoplifters so he got a beef on the copper for racial profiling. I wish I was joking but it is true. When they got rid of FTO's in 014, this genius went to 015. He got stripped of his FTO status for a spell, because of his shenanigans regarding the shoplifter incident. The cops in 025 ripped on him mercilessly because he would always get on the air, everyday, and ask to go get a car wash, like in 013 or some far off place. Eventually the clown stopped, but he needs to retire. For someone that is so cheap, he doesn't seem to grasp that he is losing money at this point. Rat.

They have the best hours I never see them at the station. 3. They get no jobs they don't carry a radio. 4. When they do come in they close their door and I never see them come out. 5. When I do see them in 005 the Sgt. Walking around decorating the station, I didn't know we had a arts and crafts section in the department. We need to keep the CAPS people back on the street you guys are a waste to man power you idiots.

Why not complain about these POS FTOs on this job that deserve to be stripped of it?? Because there's plenty!!!!!! D.M is one of the most knowledgeable and genuinely good hearted POs on this job. I commend him for being an FTO for so long because it's a thankless job within the department which is apparent with all you complaining about the lack of perks for being one. Btw, I was one of his PPOs and never once was "pestered" to give him a ride home.

I never heard of a hard charging detective and you do realize that as a detective I have more than enough time on the job to not need a CPD history lesson from you. It's been 2 or 3 contracts since detectives got D2A. I'm only into my 6th contract with the department so I think I have a decent grasp of the pay grades Dean Angelo.

Listen Tuff guy, the reason he asks for a call back is because he has too. And so do you, it's your jab, asshat. Your mom should put a timer on the electrical in the basement so you don't post nonsense all over the internet when you get too hopped up on sugar late at night. Maybe he takes the bus because he needs too, or because he enjoys it. He never forces rides on anyone, obviously he will except but he is fine with making his own way home. You should listen to a thing or two coming of that old timer's mouth. If your smart enough you will and keep yourself out of the penitentiary. He may not not be the "coolest" FTO, be he is an FTO. Listen to what he says, he is there to help you learn how to do a job you know nothing about.

He is teaching you to do your job the right way and when you are on your own you can cut corners and be a bum if you wish to do so, but at least you can't say you learned that from him.
