VRI Done?

Once again, the rumor appears:
  • Anonymous said...

    VRI gone tomorrow along with other changes. Press conference at 35th tomorrow.
A lot of other rumbling in the shadows, too. Rumors of connected people searching for landing spots, so the VRI rumor has a bit of credibility behind it. Might be an interesting day ahead.

Ya lol ... go ahead get rid of VRI
I can say honestly the majority of officers I know are only doing minimum activity just for that 2 or 3 days a month of VRI
They think numbers are low now ?! With us getting the cameras and the end of VRI lol they ain't seen nothing yet
The little activity they are getting is due to VRI alone.
Let the bodies hit the floor! Let the bodies hit the floor! Let the bodies hit the floor!!

If it leaves it will be reborn as something else. The city benefits too much from coppers burning the candle at both ends. Not to mention activity brought in by those who perhaps wouldn't do diddily otherwise.

If it's actually gone, it won't be gone long.

Just found out today on 4-JAN-2017, while going to see my doctor that my medical coverage is inactive for me and the family. They told me to call my provider, did so and they told me they are aware of problem. I was told that I'm not the only one, but unfortunately me along with 6 or 7 thousand members of the city of chitcago. After calling every human resources, benefits and their momma ended up calling the FOP, in which they are aware of situation but no answers except that everybody (Blue Cross, City of Shitcago and FOP) know about the problem, but no time frame as to when problem will be fixed. In the meantime was told to pay up front or send the bill to city of Shitcago. When I told them to send the bill to city, they freaked out saying that they would rather for me to pay up front and for me to send bill to city and good luck with that. What the fuck is this shit show going on, city is taking out for medical benefits but I'm shit out of luck, any advice......

WOW ! I would be burning up the phone lines and e-mail inboxes of every TV and radio station in Chicago, screaming about this. You all know that nothing gets Rahm and his henchmen moving like bad pub, and these days, for the City to drop the ball for city employees like this is inexcusable.

85-93 thousand without any overtime or uniform checks is slave wage??? Hahahahahha, you must have grew up in the suburbs your whole life with parents who were well off. My parents are blue collar and we were raised that way in the city. I make about 88k right now and my wife works a decent part time job making about 40k a year. We have a nice house but not a mansion, two good family cars and can send the kids to catholic schools. We don't live beyond our means and we still have enough money to take a few vacations a year and save some. What's your problem??? Wife won't work?? Gotta have a brand new cool tactical jeep with the punisher sticker on it that costs 40 grand, gotta have a huge house with all the toys? Yeah, a "slaves wage".

VRI is a waste of money bring back Working Units that stop gang members and take guns from them.

1/04/2017 12:24:00 AM

Bring them back from where, prison? Are you really this fucking stupid? Those days are over. Proactive policing and stopping gang members and taking their guns are things of the past. No one with half a brain rattling around in their thick skull is going to do the work you want to bring back. Anyone who tries will be risking their career and their freedom each day they decide they're the "real police." Those units are the reason we're in this current shitstorm. I look forward to your future post about a benefit for yourself or one of the other morons who doesn't get it. I'll just laugh.

When the Homicides increase further yet, then it will come back. Dollars to Donuts the city is taking a financial breather and hoping the colder weather will stay the crime.

Aaaaand.....nothing happened today(as of right this second). This rumor popped up before, only to expand the 1600 start. Whatever, if it goes, it goes. If not cops will work it. The problem started when cops were stuck in a 2x2 block box. Before that guys (and ladies) brought in movers, parkers, anovs, etc. Not all, but many. Then some fool had a "Better idea"(moron). Anyway, put the o.t. in the district. I can't see us, leading the nation in gun violence, cutting o.t. on the street.

I stopped working VRI in July of '16. I was able to pay off my condo in under 8 years. I only have 6 to go before I can leave this God forsaken job, all thanks to the fine people and folks of the South and West sides of the city. That and Shortshanks and the tiny dancer not being able to manage a big city.

They will do in district missions and it will be runned by the same sgts, example in 009 heard from a friend that on 3rd watch it's always the same Sgt and almost the same p/o doing it.

Lookie there. Citizens in 012 listed that as a demand in a petition/letter to aldermen last summer:
• To temporarily boost the number of officers on the street during peak crime hours, offer 12th District officers the opportunity to work overtime on 1st Watch on Saturday and Sunday and 3rd Watch on Friday and Saturday;

And the first to take advantage is the boy working in the commanders office. Can't work a beat car unless ot is involved.

Never had the chance for vri, long gone before it began. CTA & CHA Special were not too bad back in the day, and helped pay for tuition. Good for you all that socked it away. Those that pissed it away on motorized toys-good luck.

I love how all of the sergeants at VRI would say, do a little something so this VRI thing won't end....ha fuck you. It had nothing to do with that to begin with dipshits. And you assholes saying good riddance 'n such, you're an idiot. Many people in many other jobs would kill for the OT. For some it may be about living within your means but many others it's the only way to make more money. Sorry but I like making more money, having nicer things than when I was a kid, provide for my family, etc. We make slave wage. And if you don't think so then do us a favor and not take a promotional exam. Because you honestly can't be taking the Sgt exam for the job itself can ya? It's for the money.

@@@@

85-93 thousand without any overtime or uniform checks is slave wage??? Hahahahahha, you must have grew up in the suburbs your whole life with parents who were well off. My parents are blue collar and we were raised that way in the city. I make about 88k right now and my wife works a decent part time job making about 40k a year. We have a nice house but not a mansion, two good family cars and can send the kids to catholic schools. We don't live beyond our means and we still have enough money to take a few vacations a year and save some. What's your problem??? Wife won't work?? Gotta have a brand new cool tactical jeep with the punisher sticker on it that costs 40 grand, gotta have a huge house with all the toys? Yeah, a "slaves wage". Try not to insult the people who aren't cops who make 40-50k a year with a house and family. You were obviously a spoiled chiled and a self spoiled adult.

1/04/2017 04:33:00 PM

Self spoiled??

What are you a fucking communist??

It's none of your business what anybody does with their money, I sure as fuck don't care what you do with yours.

VRI was as useless as **** on a bull; another gravy train for folks to ride; if there were almost 800 homicides and over 4000 folks shot with VRI running, why not save the money, and count the bodies anyway, maybe use the VRI money to pay for retiree health care?

1/04/2017 02:59:00 PM

So somehow VRI is responsible for the near 800 homicides, but it wasn't for the 509, 460, and 455 the previous three years. Nice logic moron. Do something that doesn't make you sound stupid next time and count to 1.

"...........Just found out today on 4-JAN-2017, while going to see my doctor that my medical coverage is inactive for me and the family. They told me to call my provider, did so and they told me they are aware of problem. I was told that I'm not the only one, but unfortunately me along with 6 or 7 thousand members of the city of chitcago. After calling every human resources, benefits and their momma ended up calling the FOP, in which they are aware of situation but no answers except that everybody (Blue Cross, City of Shitcago and FOP) know about the problem, but no time frame as to when problem will be fixed............."

WOW ! I would be burning up the phone lines and e-mail inboxes of every TV and radio station in Chicago, screaming about this. You all know that nothing gets Rahm and his henchmen moving like bad pub, and these days, for the City to drop the ball for city employees like this is inexcusable.

I'm sure somebody just forgot to move a garbage-bin full of money from one account to another. No big deal, boys.........

Called bcbs today 1618 hours told policy was cancelled 01jan2017, but they were opening a new policy same numbers, asked my name and said I was in the batch along with thousands of other officers the city sent paperwork electronically late was this another rahm hate the police idea!

Just seen a news story about a mentally challenged Caucasian boy from Crystal Lake who was tortured by 4 African Americans who called his parents sending pics of the incident while making slurs of him being white mentioning Trump. They cut him with a knife and choked him with a belt around his neck while kicking him in the face. The police and States Attorney,s office is not charging these Fucks with hate crimes. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!!! Time to protest boys and hold these assholes accountable. Especially these politicians who disregard the white people especially mentally handicapped people. Oh god forbid this incident have the races changed. Fuck you and disgusted!!

Youre just a salty dick bag. Most of us didnt give a shit about activity. We gave a shit that you were in the box that you were supposed to be, that you responded to in progress calls and that you stayed up if only to make sure that no one got the drop on you. Thats all we cared about. Live within your means and stop trying to defame oyhers because of your looming financial problems.

VRI was good when they had 400 Officers out there. They asked for copies of activity and we brought it in. Of course this was all before the media killed the CPD.

All vri did was wake up the lazy dog copper and have them bring in the bare minimum or bother people that would normally be left alone just so a greedy copper can make money to pay a exwife or a over priced pick up truck. Who cares?

It's been the biggest waste of money in department history. We bitch and moan all day about the city wasting money on all kinds of other shit but when it involves us we don't say shit. Let's be honest this shit doesn't do anything about crime. We put 2 guys in a car watching movies and texting for 8 hours and sit them on one corner or block all night. It's a total and complete waste of hundreds of millions of dollars. How can the city justify homicides almost doubling while paying for so much VRI? It's just a joke. Until sentencing changes and until coppers are allowed to be the police again(probably not happening) nothing is changing. I mean if I'm the mayor I would say fuck it, if we have 800-900 murders anyway we can do that while saving hundreds of millions in OT. The numbers aren't changing in this environment with no consequences for these animals. Go ahead call me a troll or whatever you need to call me to make yourself feel better, but I'm a blue shirt with common sense. Anyone that says this works is just a moron.

All of you talking about how VRI actually works clearly can't face reality. You know it, I know it, and every other real copper knows it. Unless you're going to VRI and actively looking for guns every time you work it, you're not making a difference. Let's be honest it's a bunch of guys writing bullshit ass parkers or maybe an anov and only doing THAT to get their activity for next months VRI. I'm sure you're all hard chargers and that parker you wrote for the expired plates solved or prevented a homicide(spare me on telling me how the dicks can use a Parker to solve a homicide that MAY have occurred that day. I know already, Been doing this awhile) or that anov for smoking on a CTA platform closed 100s of cases. LOOK IN A MIRROR AND BE HONEST. It's a joke. I'm sure a few guys have made an arrest at VRI but let's show the numbers. Make VRI activity numbers public if you're making such a difference. I'm sure it would basically reveal that VRI is a money maker for the city because all anyone does is parkers and ANOVs. Low end that's $50 per Parker and maybe $100 per anov(if actually paid). Do the math. Then show me exactly the total number of ARRESTS made by all VRI units since this began years ago. Show me the numbers and then tell me how "effective" it is. Get the fuck outta here with that shit

Perhaps moving VRI boxes to spots that really needed it would be helpful. Spots went for years because of an isolated shooting. Perhaps before closing it down, they switch up boxes. Don't recall many actual shootings happening INSIDE the boxes.

That's not the point of VRI dumb fuck and it never has been. VRI is about a deterrence, not about pimp numbers, no shootings in VRI boxes=success. Being visible and in the area you're supposed to be in the key.

Joe knows a police car is a block away, Joe knows that increases his chance of being caught exponentially, if you can't figure that out, you're exponentially stupid.
