Acting Up FTO?

So a directive came out from the First Deputy's Office at the end of last week. The title is "Acting Up Field Training Officer - Out of Grade Opportunity." IT seems the Department has suddenly realized that there is a hiring push on and there aren't nearly enough FTO's available to actually....you know....train the people being hired.

The last time this happened, the Department stuffed the kids on vans with one or no FTO's, or put them on foot in the ghetto with next-to-no direction or supervision and expecting them top come in with legal, lawful and proper numbers. The DOJ just about laughed out loud at this.

So now, if you passed the most recent Sergeant exam, no matter where you ranked, you have the opportunity to teach a fresh-faced Probationary Police Officer. It doesn't matter if you scored in the top 100, or top 1,000 or even the top 3,000 with no phone call and zero chance at a promotion. You may have scored approximately 42% on the Sergeant Exam (which was passing), but the Department says you are qualified to teach a PPO the job.

Of course, you can opt out if you want to - there's a form you have to fill out. And many will. But if you don't opt out, you may come to work one day and find a surprise.

That's exactly what people on the way to a promotion need. Partner up with a know everything millennial who will undoubtedly do something stupid to which you will be held accountable for. Fuck that.

the problem is that many of the FTOs that just came out have less than 5 or 6 years on. Heck, many of them only have 3 years on. 10 years minimum to be an fto. no question. It is one of the most important jobs on this department. I know that guys with 5,6 and 7 years on think they know everything about everything but your just starting to get comfortable with stuff at 6 years. you are finally getting use to court testimony, writing good paper on arrests being able to determine what questions you are gonna get cross examined on while you are writing your case and anticipating how to write given what will be asked in court but at 6 years a lot of those guys still don't have the gift of being able to BS and talk to people on the street yet. you don't even start getting your whiskers on this job till 9 or 10 years on. nobody should be an FTO with 10 years on.

LOLZ!

So you gotta "opt out" or else you'll come to
work and find out you've been "sucked in"
to being an "Acting Up FTO?"

Translation:
"We couldn't get enough suckers, uhhh...
OFFICERS to take the FTO test."

Because the city and department has taken
a deeply knee-bent, wall-banging shit on
FTOs since they first went "Lance Corporal"
in '98-'99...

Whooooo...
These m/fers are gettin' kinda slick, eh?

Be sure to get the damned thing signed
and make plenty of copies so the district
front office doesn't play the bullshit
game and FOP plays dumb when the
grievances comes...

I love this fuckin place. The fire department pays extra when a guy goes through the trouble to develop new skills even if he doesn't use them on a regular basis. The police department saddles them with more work for the same pay. You too can hump a rifle around or increase your call volume by being cit trained or admitting to being fluent in another language.
To quote a famous movie "fuck you pay me ".

The shame of all of this is another promotional examination with such a low pass rate ( 42%) which then makes you qualified to make a merit promotion without even taking the rest of the test. It is laughable at best. Then when you think that most of the leaders of CPD were merit promoted with bare knowledge of department policies. I would like the city to give a graduating recruit class the sergeant examination and see how many get at least 42%. Probably most of them.

So 42% is a passing score for the Sgts. test? That means that you have Merit Sgts. scoring at that level. No wonder why this department is in the sad shape that it is. This also means that a lot of your bosses who were always promoted by Merit also scored at this level and are now in charge at the highest levels of the department. This is plain sick, crazy and downright dangerous.

I came on in 1987,recently retired had an FTO seasoned in englewood (RIP Kenny Thelen), vietnam vet special forces, this guy really knew the streets, the people, the thugs, the gangs, and most of all really knew how to teach! We made all types of arrests you learned quickly and most of all he taught me how to be safe and protect my partner and other officers he always said "Blue is all we have!" Which was true then is today and no matter what a goofy boss says will always be!

On another subject the state has a "Grand Bargain" tax plan raising taxes ever hire:

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/some-optimism-some-trepidation-as-senate-mulls-grand-bargain/

A grand Bargain would be a forensic audit on the state-county-city finances a through look at everything! Bet they would find billions in misappropriated money! You see how hard the democrats are fighting President Trump at every turn because they know the campaign accounts could dwindle if they don't get "friends and family" lucrative contracts at bloated costs! The swamp here is a total cesspool of corruption now President Trump and rahm are talking a meeting to talk about the murder and mayhem in Chicago will this make Chicago great again? Don't bet on it, if they keep the bastardization of CPD, the 24/7 "dishonest media" coverage, the constant stress threatening officers and removing them from pay status, with the exempt ranks that not even a beggar on the streets would respect the spiral continues! Eddie you should of not shuffled the deck but brought in new players the game could of changed!

This rant is about Accountability.

For the past few weeks all I have read or heard about this Department is taken right out of the DOJ report.

Transparency and Accountability are the catch words.

So even before the report was released CPD started using these words on every occasion.
Just look before the DOJ report release date and you will find these words.
This is when they pushed for new officers and then the training of FTO and Detectives.
Then they push new lieutenants and Sgts.

And now they do the math and find the shortage FTOs Wow just plain Wow.
WHO IN THE DEPARTMENT IS RESPONSIBLE?

How can any city agency hire or train any employees if they do not know How many are needed to fill vacancies?

You can tell this is a rush to fill spots due to retirements and promotions but
this Department has never trained or supported this and now shows
Why the department is so poorly managed

After retirement last year I feel sorry for my Department. This job was good to me fed my family put myself and my children through college. But this new Department is showing its true colors. They are not blue. They are going to eat the new young charges and cut them loose at the first signs of adversity.

All in the name of transparency or accountability

Years ago and I'm talking more than 30 they a had "Temp Sgt" program where some of those who tested high but without "juice" were made "temps" to support the undersized rank at a time when hiring was on a big upswing, early '70's.

Funny thing was there was no merit and some guys as heavy a Cadillac were only "temps" but were made FTO's after the stint just to keep the phones quiet on why "my so and so" can't keep the chevrons.

From breaking news:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-trump-chicago-violence-20170208-story.html#nt=oft13a-1gp1


President Donald Trump again highlighted violence in Chicago on Wednesday, asserting that many of the city's problems are caused by gang members — "many of whom are not even legally in our country."

Trump, addressing a conference of police chiefs and sheriffs, urged them to "turn in" bad actors to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

"I want you to turn in the bad ones," Trump said. "Call Secretary Kelly's representatives and we'll get them out of our country and bring them back to where they came from and we'll do it fast. You have to call the federal government, Homeland Security, because so much of the problems — you look at Chicago and you look at other places. So many of the problems are caused by gang members, many of whom are not even legally in our country."

Now does that mean that CPD coppers can call to remove the criminal illegal invaders? Does a presidential order override municipal orders? I will be calling first steps in draining a swamp can we also cal, to remove the thugs that would be great remove them all "make Chicago great again!"

Merit Sgts should be temp FTO's....they may learn a thing or two, trade stories of never being on the street and how to adapt having to work Sat/Sun and holidays.
The CPD Sgt is an overrated position especially the former warrior hard chargers with walnut sized brains.
Maybe it's about time they allow the Sgts to train PPO's, write their own tickets, ISR's, do arrests and have the Box2 PPO go to court.
If they're anything special like know-it-alls that they say they are, then let them take a shot and model the new recruit.
"42% Sgts" are so sharp that they are not even afforded a "Sgt FTO" to be graded or dumped.
What do we have to lose? An active PPO makes a better PO and a happy Supervisor.

How about keeping criminals in prison for the first crime they commit and not pretending they have been rehabilitated then releasing them and threatening prison for second offenses.

If you passed part 1 of the sgt's test then you have displayed the ability to be a sgt. part 2 is just to rank order eligible members.

Off topic: hear Ed not happy with the all the secretaries and drivers being made. Wasn't he the last to approve this fiasco? What's that all about ?

How many from the detective class are now being pulled to the new sgt class? Why didn't they promote Sgts first? What a waste of time and money, who approved that move?

Is he going to expose ALL the merit picks and their sponsors from the last Lt and Sgt promotions within the last year? There a few names on the first Lt class list I'm sure they don't want you to know were merit and the sponsor. Connect the dots and the big boss names and the promoted relatives. Please be "transparent" Ed, you said it, now do it.

People had BETTER pay attention to the 100 UNIT SECTION 8 HOUSING PROJECT earmarked for 5150 N.Northwest Hwy. This is a part of Obamas's fuck you legacy being spread to stable neighborhoods and a wet dream for Rahm. Call Ald Arena and voice your opinion! If Obama had a son he'd be slinging dope in front of Ellys or Science and Surplus. 016 to 015 right before your very eyes.

Off topic. At 025 dist third watch early roll call we were told we stay entire 9 hour tour per the commander. Yet the rapid cars have a agreement they all leave at 11 ( 5 hours of work) if they bring in TSS cards. That's right , all gone before early check off. If your friends with incompetent Sgt pancakes u leave before than. Its another slap in the face to the beat cars in 025

Don't worry, working 8 hours is rough but you will get used to it.

Speaking of the idiot/ignorant 2500. He comes up on zone 9, says he is with a citizen who may have had his car stolen, can u send a car over for the report. Dispatcher says according to the new policy of no offenders in the area he has to call 311. Anyone that knows 2500 knew this wasn't going to end well. He replies well maybe there are offenders in the area and besides I told you to send one so just do it!

This could have been handled a bunch of different ways, the dispatcher was completely professional and 2500 was completely a dick.
Can't imagine how he treats people in 25, has to suck working for quadruple merit Tony.

am unclear as to why shortage of FTOS is being addressed by paying people who do not want to be FTOS (as evidenced by their not taking the test) to be FTOS.

Alternative facts. All that matters is the electoral vote. Yood be a sergeant now if yood spent more time campaigning in Michigan and Wisconsin.

"you don't even start getting your whiskers on this job till 9 or 10 years on. nobody should be an FTO with 10 years on."

- says a very slow learner. Writing concise understandable paper that is based on fact and will fly in court is not rocket science. If anything, the new fto should be teaching that, and how to operate in the new world of body cams (the otherwise rectangular shaped ass dildo designed to keep discipline from falling anywhere else but the street level), keeping your personal life quiet, and making sure that before you do anything on this job, take a deep breath, calm down, and think first act second. And teach that just because you're the police, you've never been closer to a jail cell in your life.

- someone who doesn't have ten years, but is smart enough to read the writing on the wall.

This is far from a "cool guy'" twist. This has to do with an illiterate house mouse at the helm. Have you read the emails from the Superintendent?

There was an email that was so badly written that it is an embarrassment. Word-check should have caught some of the mistakes. The subsequent email was incredibly well written. They found someone who can write. The horrific email was probably brought to someone's attention.

Chuckling as I recall my PPO days in 011...circa early 90's.
It was not uncommon for 2 PPO's to man a car back then. NO FTO! Especially on 3rd watch.
Somehow, we knew to open our dam mouths and ask Sarge or the vets, when we cam across something we'd not previously encountered. Sure, they'd give us a lil shit. But ultimately, they were glad to help us. And quick with a "Good job kid!" when we did well.
I wouldn't trade the time I came on, or when we were told "Figure it out PPO", for anything in the world.
***No knock on the new guys. Because it's not their fault.***
