This is Certainly True

Remember when the Department installed GPS in the cars? They told everyone over and over that it was an "officer safety" issue and it would never EVER be used for disciplinary purposes. We predicted this was a lie more ways than we could count. In the past week, we've received e-mails telling us how:
  • GPS printouts of a pursuit were used to "prove" a squad car was going far faster than the officers put down on paper, and the officers are facing discipline;
  • GPS was used to track all the cars near a different pursuit, and everyone who didn't upload a functional camera is looking at taking suspension time;
  • Command staff and inspectors have had their GPS disabled because some enterprising officers were checking on their status from the desks - the way the Command staff and Inspectors were checking on everyone else;
In other words, GPS was used in an adversarial manner far more often than anyone in charge admitted to.

Now someone commented the following:
  • My favorite lie related to the cameras is:" The cameras will be good for da coppers!"

    Really?

    So let me get this straight: If some local Democrat attacks you, in a fit of Righteous Rage, because "Da Man bin keeping me down", and the camera records the attack: Ms. Foxx is going Prosecute?

    NO WAY!

    However, if a cop strikes one blow more than what the armchair quarterbacks thinks is excessive; you can be sure that there will be a prosecution of that Officer. And the Mayor himself will hold a news conference, apologize and promise punishment for that officer. Nobody should believe for a second, that these cameras are for any other purpose than to nail officers. The Camera is an extension of the Democrat Party Agenda, that Rahm wants to ride to a Third Term; and that is that THE COPS ARE THE PROBLEM.
In this day and age right now, an Officer is assumed to be guilty. If you have an in-car camera or a body camera, you may luck out. But if it doesn't show 100% clear and convincing evidence of following procedure TO THE LETTER, you will be subject to a media witch hunt, assorted activist protests, a rectal exam courtesy of the States Attorney and a lawsuit to go along with your Department suspension.

Don't bet against it.

This is so true.

I have seen the use of GPS and Cell phone tracking used by IAD and IPRA.
Worked in IAD and recently they served officers with orders to provide cell phone numbers which can be used for triangulation of location from towers

They will use cameras in the same aggressive manner.

This is for punishment not the truth.

It is why I retired. We are going after working cops.
But bad cops remain. Protected..

Look at history Abbate Poulos and Callahan also the two idiots that drove drunk girl home to get lucky.....all were searched for cell phone history and tracking.

Strap that camera on and spin the wheel of fate.

Since you know everything is going to be used against you, just feed them what they expect.

No pursuits.

Stop at all red lights, and stop signs.

No rapid responses to anything - if it's a medical issue, that's what ambulances are for. They don't need escorts - they have their own sirens and lights right?

Show up to calls, nice and calm - take the report. Wish everyone a nice day, and leave - slow...

A few years ago, while working in the 010th District (two nights in a row), the GPS system in my CPD marked vehicle showed that I was on the border between the 009th and 010th Districts, 1/8th mile west of Western Ave., for my entire tour.

I asked the Zone 10 dispatcher to tell me where her GPS program had my location. There was a pause, and then an audible chuckle over the zone by the dispatcher. According to the CPD GPS, I and my department vehicle spent two days in the middle of the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal.

Other times, it has shown units over 1/2 mile away from their actual location (I know, because I personally was pulled over speaking with the officers of those units, at their real locations).

The fact is, the GPS system and records we use don't come remotely close to being useful to prove a criminal standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt", and also don't meet the civil standard of "a preponderance of the evidence". It is not, "more probably true than not" that you are where it says you are.

If you, as a Chicago Police Officer, are dumb enough to rely on your cars GPS to get help to you when you need it (the reason they told us they were intending it for), then you are a fool who is going to get themselves killed.

The reliability of our CPD GPS on locating the officer in an emergency is somewhere between that of a hunch and that of a divining rod.

GPS and Body Cam's are a one way street. We are never proactive and inventory images of the bad guys actions/driving during an arrest to be shown in court proceedings. These are only saved/viewed when there is a complaint against the police. That is a MAJOR problem!! Every officer should demand (written into a report) that those images will clearly show and prove what the offender did and should be part of every arrest packet and shown in court

Anyone know the +/- of GPS mph? Is the GPS software that is used by the City accurate/have clichés? Knowing the City's propensity for not paying top dollar for equipment/service one cannot help but think that the GPS may be faulty.

Cameras are a trap. You could do a million good things on that camera but if you make one mistake or something that the powers that be , the public and the media perceive and allege is a mistake you will be hammered for that so called mistake. And the politicians can then say 'it's working." They can say that what they did is paying off when all they're doing is making themselves look like do gooders in the eyes of the police hating public when the only thing they're doing is hanging out cops to dry.

Sadly most everything you say about this is true SCC.
The day of Big Brother just keeps ramping up and the scrutiny is mostly only used against the grunts and almost always for our detriment and not our aid.
On our zone I've heard the dispatchers routinely referring to GPS even when there's no officer safety issue going on.

They've also got an ever expanding platoon of in car and body cam techs working with virtually unlimited overtime to keep every camera rolling for every second possible. Again this is definitely not for the officers benefit.

Fuck Rahm, fuck this shitty department.... stay fetal my friends.

When they first started installing the GPS units in cars they had some Hillbilly outfit from Kansas that was installing them and bease they were non union the garages would not let them inside so these units were installed bad. Cars were left with dead batteries, etc. The system was so flawed that they showed cars in Lake Michigan and I was in a specialized unit and one night my Lt. Called me and asked what my cars were doing in another area of the city when I was having a meeting with them all in a district. They do record speed and are now pretty accurate.

As an old retired guy, 70 years old, I read with amazement on what has become of my police department. I had some limited success in my day and was what you would call a " hard charger", got a few promotions and loved the job. I can honestly say that if I was still working, I would be doing minimal, at least until things shake out with Fox and Johnson. The political progressive class has put up so many roadblocks for the police, I really can't see how you can get anything done, that is, without risking your livelihood . I certainly would like to see Supt. Johnson and some of these merit " leaders" do what they are demanding you to do. I did not know that tact officers will be wearing body cameras. If that is true, it is the end of effective tact teams. Everybody who knows nothing about being the police is jumping in with their ideas on how to be the police. Sad, very sad and it will take a generation to turn this around, if ever.

Thanks for printing my quote on the Bullshit and Perception that is the Camera System, exclusively intended to appease political guilt, and to Jam Coppers Up. That is it, Plain and Simple, and I am speaking as a former CPD Sgt. with 32 yrs. of service, 25 at the rank of Sgt. Nothing done by the City of Chicago can be done without a Political and Racial component, and this camera system has both. Rahm won a Second Term because Blacks had not seen the McDonald Tape! RAHM AND ALVAREZ deceived them by SUPPRESSING IT FOR POLITICAL SURVIVAL. And I challenge anyone to prove otherwise. Hopefully, McCarthy and every exempt that saw the tape within 24 hrs.of the incident, including the Civilian attorney, who was the liaison to the Police Department, Ms. Roundtree; are made to explain why THEY FELT THE SHOOING WAS LEGIT ON ONE DAY, THEN AFTER THE ELECTION, THE SHOOTING WAS A CRIME! Where are Rahm's emails on those conversations immediately after the McDonald incident? Mr. Shaw, how about asking for Text Messages by Rahm, Roundtree, McCarthy and All of the Exempt members of the Chicago Police Department immediately following the McDonald incident? The Cover-Up and "Persecution", not Prosecution, of Sgt. Franko and P.O. VanDyke, and every other copper thrown under the bus by this incident is Outrageous!FINALLY, LET ME ADD THIS TO THE MIX: IF THE DEPARTMENT IS REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT THIS CAMERA BULLSHIT, CAMERA UP EVERY TAC OFFICER AND EVERY DETECTIVE. THEN LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS! ONCE AGAIN, PATROL IS EXPENDABLE. YET, DETECTIVES NOT PATROL ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BURGE ALLEGATIONS. TACTICAL OFFICERS ARE STILL BRINGING IN ACTIVITY, WELL LET'S SEE IT ON TAPE AND MAYBE THEY CAN SHOW THE REST OF THE DEPARTMENT HOW THEY DO IT! OR HOW ABOUT THIS: LET'S CAMERA UP ANKLE BRACELETS, AND SEE HOW PEOPLE ON HOME MONITORING ARE DOING. THE camera is always limited in its scope to what appears before the lens. The limitation is enhanced, when we realize, that only certain people and places will be using that lens, and those are uniformed patrol officers, the lowest point on the food chain. Stay Safe and Strong, Fu&k Rahm. Baby"G"

Even if the Department doesn't use GPS against you working coppers, you can bet the rent that some bottom feeding lawyers will.

Like say... oh.. Lovie & Lovie, who'll use it in some bullshit lawsuit to help win The Ghetto Lottery for some client whose Honor Student relative ran a stolen car into a brick wall at 60mph and died as a result of the Laws of Physics.

Even if the Department fights the release of the data, some Judge somewhere will rule that it should be 'public'. Just like when the I-Pass first came out, that data was supposed to be private too. Ha! It didn't take long for a Divorce Attorney to sue when he was denied access to it so he could use the data against a cheating husband. Once that that wall was breached the Dam Broke and I-Pass Records can be used against you like fingerprints. [Now, intelligent cheating husbands carry a lot of Toll Money. (rotfl)]

The fact of the matter is that any and ALL technology will eventually be used in a court, for or against you. And for Coppers, in the Police Departments you work for too.

Be careful out there tonight you guys and gals. (19-Paul)

Real nice warm FUZZY effect. Forgot one time and left the filter on and photographed a large group. so fuzzy you couldn't even figure out who was who.

That's funny. Mine showed that I never went over 0mph one night. I know I had it up over 60 at least once that night. When working properly, the GPS cam be pretty accurate. When it's not working properly, which is very often, it can't tell you shit. Cars get "frozen" at various locations while they're actually driving somewhere else, nowhere near their supposed location. It's not reliable or accurate enough to prove anything about the location or speed of a car.

If GPS and cameras are going to be used as a tool against officers then shouldn't these things be part of the bargaining rights with FOP? Also, consider the days, if you were to be so lucky, of leaving early and not having a slip dropped completely dead. The cameras time stamp everything and every officer will have their own camera assigned to them. This also allows major abuse of power if someone wants to track an officer. Be fetal?

One of the reasons I left the Buildings Department was because of the use of GPS. I didn't want time off from some puke in HR because I was traveling too fast through some of Chicago's finer neighborhoods.

The assholes in charge have used GPS to many City workers detriment. The clouted, as usual, get a pass. If you ever stood up to these misfits, they'll be combing through your records relentlessly, looking to jam you up.

they sell GPS jammers on E Bay for like $30 - technically they are illegal under federal law


we tested it one day when we had access to GPS for the cars

first of all you have to put it right next to the GPS thing in the trunk, #2 it still shows you at a location, but it's way on the other side of the city
