By the Numbers

Just some things we noticed about the Sergeant list:
  • 26 "merits" from units
  • 14 from districts
So much for Special Ed saying that Patrol was the backbone of the Department and unit people were "already taken care of." Just more lies from downtown.
  • 13 promotees from 006? 
Must be something in the water.
  • Lots of secretaries, 
  • drivers, 
  • house mice who haven't seen the inside of a beat car in years, over a decade in some
  • A lot of exempts nominating people outside of their chain of command
Why is that?

Off Topic I apologize.

A proud veteran of the Fifteenth District, A.k.a Fort Forgotten was killed Friday, apparently by her husband, also a retired cop.

Betty Brinkman, N.K.A. Elizabeth Volberding, apparently was the victim of Domestic Violence in the Town of Spring Grove, where her and her husband had moved to after retiring.

I do not want to rehash the details of the horrific incident, just that it seems cries for help went unheeded.

To all cops, if you are in a bad situation, GET OUT.

To the families of cops, if your loved one is in a bad situation GET THEM OUT.

no exempt should ever be able to nominate anyone who has not worked for them in recent times. When this happens it is a red flag for corruption and influence, nothing more. The system stinks and Johnson is a liar and a tool of the mayor, just like all of his predecessors

Also why when some places have openings why do they ask for reference letters? Activity from whichever timeframe they are asking I thought quotas were illegal? All unit opening opportunities should be by seniority no need for resumes. Example is that information center one with the cameras and spot shooter. Why need resumes and references in other words who's your juice.

Look no further than the "exempts" that nominated the "merits".I posted earlier on another thread.I was a boss(non-nominating level) that recalls only 1 name on that list(non-merit),he was a recruit and a good kid (M/WH) back when I was around. I shook my head at all the "exempts" names that I know though.

Chicago corruption is unstoppable. Has been since the days of Al Capone.

Sergeants blatantly cheating on exams. Unqualified merit promotions. A superintendent that is faking a bad kidney for compassion. A mayor trying to destroy our pension. The biggest phonies are the Chicago media that ignores it all.

Probably the reason that exempts are nominating people outside of their chain of commands is that they are told from higher-ups, i.e., alderbitches, the rat of a mayor, clergy, etc. who to nominate.

I would be willing to bet that in many cases the exempts do not even know the people they are recommending for promotion.

These merit guys want to be sergeants but terrified to work the street. They are majority secretaries and drivers, so assign them to 003, 005, 006, 007, 008, 009, 010, 011, 015, and 025 so they can learn how to do an Aira report before they approve or reject one. The entire merit list will have to be AIRA trained lol. 4-DATA get ready because they haven't used those password in years😂 Don't let them run back into (IAD, the DOC/CPIC, the Academy, CAPS or midnights on the desk in 016.) You would think the merit board would at least check the arrest history to see if the candidates has ever worked the street. Candidates spend most of their time hiding and transfer to patrol right before being put in for merit.

I like how everyone thinks the feds are the answer to cleaning up the administrative and operational messes in the department. Where have you been the last 20 years? Have you forgotten about Eric Holder and the Ferguson Missouri fiasco, or for that matter the Fast and Furious debacle? Does anyone really believe those in positions in the federal government are squeaky clean administrators? C'mon, wise up would you? And its not just the Obama administration, its every administration. Why do you suppose they have press secretaries? We only hear what they want us to hear, and when we get wind of something that really stinks, its usually the byproduct of a disgruntled employee with an ax to grind against his employer. Otherwise we're just being fed bullshit that's intended for public consumption. We should know better. How many times have you read/seen a media account of an incident you have direct knowledge of? How accurately was the incident reported in the media? Enough said.

Ok. Follow along. JanAshley was nominated by merit recipient Fabian who was promoted meritoriously to Lt and captIn by Barb West. Barb west was in the group of chosen ladies lucky enough to attend the Jan dillon study group (along with Lameka, Flores, Casey and a few other bosses). As a favor to Jan, Barb west reaches out to Fabian and tells him to put in JA for merit. Which he does even though there are many more deserving officers in 14. In turn for playing nice Saldana will catch a promotion by Barb to Deputy Chief of the training Academy. Think I'm making this shit up? Remember this post in 3 months.

What you really meant to say is that unit officers get ducks, they only work 6 hrs. a day and get paid for 8 or 9 or 10. You know this occurs on a daily basis. With the murder rate so high why are officers leaving early. I thought black lives matter. I guess not. Shame on you ed. I'm glad you are the shining beacon of the cpd.

Patrol may be the backbone of the Department, but does Rahm & Special Ed gets to pick the vertebrae?
That makes for a very weak and unreliable source of strength, certain to have little effectiveness.
Jugghead Special Ed is no professional. He was a Merit Pick himself.
Besides Rahm, the Revruns & the AlderStoogies all getting a pick too, above the 23 Dist Comm & who knows how many Deps.
Just how do they decide who gets a turn to pick, which exempts pick or have picked the most, when do merit selections expire?
What was with that scant clout class of only 10 (?) Merit Sgts back in Sep 2015?

Nice guys make nice bosses but then what's the point of an examination?
I've seen many of Merits Sgts to work out to be very active, pro-team players too.
We all know these Sgts are, but the ones that wind up back in their old spots never seeing the Watch is a shame.
When you're a Merit, you wind up being very shaky, too shaky for Beat work.

Does FOP ever challenge the pick?
They failed at keeping the level at 20% almost 20 years ago and haven't revisited the issue since.
After looking at the List and hearing Special Ed is delighted with the diverse make up the recent Applicant List of New Candidate Hires, I'm certain the current Sgt List is exhausted. It's obvious that the Rahm DOJ recommendation has been implemented. Maybe another September class of 10 Merits will come, but the List is too top heavy with high scorers...even at +/- #300.

Chiefs and Deputy Chiefs should not be able to nominate officers because they are far too removed and disconnected from the frontline. That's why they keep submitting their drivers and secretaries. That's all they know.

"Also why when some places have openings why do they ask for reference letters? Activity from whichever timeframe they are asking I thought quotas were illegal? All unit opening opportunities should be by seniority no need for resumes. Example is that information center one with the cameras and spot shooter. Why need resumes and references in other words who's your juice."

Says someone with no activity and a crappy resume, if you even have one. Seniority is important. So are specialized skills, military experience, and education. I'm not endorsing nepotism. "What you know" should be more important than "who you know," and when it comes down to it, more important than your date of appointment.

I can recall back in 1968 you needed an alderman or a judge to come on the department. The two drivers of the head of the Civil Service commission always made sergeant after a few years of driving the guy around. If you wanted to be insured of making sergeant the price in 1973 was 5 grand. I heard 25 grand was the going rate for captain. I don't know what it is now but I am pretty sure that there is a select few who get promoted outside the usual ways of testing for it and earning it. It always seems that many of the exempts are connected to someone in the political class. Nothing has changed much and nothing will change despite the DOJ and their report. The mayor and the political class will grab onto what they want to if it benefits them and ignore what does not benefit them.

The problem is not merit promotions. The problem is the criteria for merit promotions. It is used as a reward and not as a way to promote deserving officers who may not do well on a test. How about this. To be promoted ti any rank, you have to spend 5 years in patrol doing patrol functions. Not working a desk or driving someone around. If you are a Sgt. looking to get promoted to Lt. 5 years working the street.

Reckon you so called "supervisors" aren't liking
the continuing education of the troops against
your demand for quota based "activity."

You supervisors still playing the "step into
the room and close the door" game are a
bunch of idiots.

Don't hide behind your rank or "Cuz I said so"
when you demand activity.

When Policemen get tagged for quota based Policing,
Supervisors should get cooked in the pot too.

"I didn't tell them to do that," will soon
no longer be cover and shielding for
Supervisors. It never should've been in the first place.

Be a man and stake your name, reputation,
and continuing employment to a number you
deem to be "sufficient activity" so that
everybody has crystal clarity about what
and how much will make you clowns STFU
once and for all about "activity."

In these times, Policemen have more than
enough really silly shit to deal with...

Welcome to the new normal of Policing
that you self impressed hard-ons
refuse to acknowledge or even understand.

"Doing your job..."

All day long, except for armed revenue
extraction for the sake of armed
revenue extraction.

Part and parcel genuine public peace
and safety? Definitely but eff that other noise
you're making.

So, publishing who is merit along with their sponsor is a new transparency. Good start, but not enough. The department changed it's merit picking process to have those nominated scored on a point system arrived at by the interview score, the application and resume. The interview panel then scored each interviewee into one of 3 tiers, tier 1 being the most suited. If any tier 2 or 3 were promoted ahead of tier 1, the whole thing is a scam. Of course, the super gets the last say with a presidential executive order style override. There is zero transparency if the tier category isn't published. It would be interesting to see if the department stuck to its allegedly fair system and only those in tier 1 are on their way to being sergeants. Let's have the FOP demand the answer.

He's a guy who doesn't care what the color of your skin is or what you are about. If you don't do your job he is a fair guy and will talk to you like a fair guy and get something going to make you happier somewhere else if you want. I'm a white guy which is irrelevant but I see a lot in this thread about so and so being a "hater" etc and bill bradly is not. He was an absolute prince to work for and hopefully will be one of the higher ups soon. A/2 dept chief is where my money is.

Whatever, Bradley was a sergeant two years ago, it's fucking ridiculous he's a commander now making merit picks. Bradley doesn't care about your skin color until its time for a merit promotion. The guy he made detective.....three years on the job.....lol...yeah you're right he does't see skin color.

The backbone of retirement is health insurance.

Rahm Emanuel stripped our old people of insurance when they are most vulnerable.

Remember that every, fucking, day you show up to work.
======================

Also remember, your FOP President Dean Angelo let him do it. POS.

If you had been paying attention this was announced before Angelo announced he was running for office. The lawsuit Underwood vs the City of Chicago was filed before the last election. Angelo's board has been funding the suit and supplying buses for the important court dates.

I have a crazy idea.how about letting the people in each district pick say 4-5 guys/gals for merit promotions?THEY have a better feel for who would make a good boss.
2/05/2017 12:29:00 PM
Actually that sounds pretty good


Actually it doesn't... cops don't make good decisions in these areas. Just look at the Fop idiots you keep voting for because he is a "good guy." This wonderful thinking starts all the way at the academy... remember the top recruits picked there? Lol

So, just barley scratching the surface and it is easily revealed that there is nothing but shit in the game. Now, what will be done about it?

It is like:

"Yes we promote people in direct violation of the Shakman decree and just common professional ethics, but Fuck You we will do whatever we want, catch me if you can"

So, you can have all kinds of rules, decrees laws, standards, ethics mandates, BLA BLA BLA, there is no enforcement end unless a lawsuit is filed, therefore nothing will happen.

Is there a discrimination suit to be brought? Perhaps, it is discrimination to promote useless people when more deserving are overlooked! Is it fair to promote those same useless people through an undefined, unpublished un-promulgated conspicuous process that fails to allow someone who wished to strive for such a promotion? I would answer yes to all of those, now, find an applicable state or federal statute, hire a lawyer and blow this mother fucker wide open? After all, legal action is what caused the department to change all the rules in the last few years, but only the rules that have to be followed with citizen contact. Why not force these mother fuckers to follow a legal process internally? The ones in the best position to sue are probably those now on the top of the list equal to the # of people promoted meritoriously, the top 40 or so I guess, who have been harmed.

Someone should file a lawsuit on these merit promotions, you can't just give 125g a yr jobs away with great pensions with no guidelines. Jesus Christ it's taxpayer money and a law enforcement agency in a city with 800 murders a year. what the fuc-. No wonder chgo crime makes world wide news. Seventy percent of the bosses either were given the job or cheated for the promotion. Activity , really merit hack boss. Lead by example , you chase the shitheads with the guns thru the gangways at 2:00am in the morning. I'M done cause doing police work gets you nothing even if I get shot in the line of duty. A fuckin- secretary gets the spot for no good reason. There is no doubt that murders will hit 1000 this year. News outlets mark this post, now you know why chgo can't and won't get a grip on its crime.

SCC I have a question maybe somebody can answer.
I admit I did not count the total names but your previous post said 142 names on the sgt's list. This post says 26 merits from units and 14 from districts which adds up to 40 merits. Now if the contract says up to 30% merit why is this list at 35.5%?

2/05/2017 12:44:00 PM
Math is not your strong suit huh? 142 x 30 = 4,260 or 42.6 if they rounded up it would be 43. They took 40 so it actually fell under 30%

Believe it when I say, that there are supervisors demanding activity everywhere. The Bureau of Organized Crime still has plenty of idiotic supervisors who demand activity. There are some so pathetic who ride around with their team to make sure some kind of nonsense is generated for the b/S "savm" being run each week. The million dollar question, guess who is not working missions in the worst areas Chicago has to offer? If you guessed the unit secretaries, give yourself a bozo button. Now go out there and get activity so the same connected, clouted do nothings can get promoted.

The math you learned in the freshman year of H.S. definitely isn't your strong suit. I hope you did much better in English class. Otherwise, your report writing must give your sergeant fits.

Is anybody really surprised? (Rhetorical) I feel for these guys/gals busting their asses out there - facing the most hatred and violence towards them that has been experienced in a long time - just to find out that the drivers and secretary's got the bump over them. Must be pretty damn dangerous, and take a lot of skill to uphold one of those inside positions. Oh wait, shootings on the E-ways are up a 1000% - that explains how the drivers got the bump..dodging 9mm slugs while driving around the exempts -, and of course the secretaries make the districts/units appear to be fully staffed when there is no manpower so we have to give them the bump. This department is becoming the joke of the nation. You hard chargers out there have my respect to the fullest; God bless you guys/gals for continuing to do your job when shit is shoved at you day in and day out.

Sorry but your in a unit that doesn't answer radio jobs, so you should be bringing in activity. Narcotics making buys, warrants etc, Fugitives bringing in wanted people, gangs sat making street stops, vice doing what they do etc etc etc. If you don't wanna do it go back to patrol, but you won't because you don't wanna give up the city car, perks etc so just do what Sgt tells you or you'll be gone..

Ok so throw out a name of who should have gotten it from Central. Exactly, no one. So he's as good a pick as any of the other Dicks there.

My Lord what's wrong with you people. You my friend are an idiot. These people are doing undercover buys regardless if it's a point two or a kilo they are dangerous situations just like every other officer out there. But in the UC buy situations supervisors are required to be there. If they aren't then they are being negligent. Stick to complaining about something you know

I don't think the bosses on the merit board should get a pick. They should recluse themselves because it's biased. G Mc didn't allow it and Special Ed should not allow it either. It's unfair and seems that the bosses tell the merit board who they want in Tier 1. Smoke and mirrors.

There were 4 merit board deputies who participated in the Sgt the interviews and all 4 had their sponsored picks made. Wtf? Ethics violation anyone ? Didn't any of the brain trusts on the 5th floor discuss this? Unbelievable.
