CPIC Shennanigans

You get a pile of money, and everyone wants to steal some:
  • We were informed in late December that 007 was going to get a “mini CPIC” room and that the lineup room would be converted to accommodate the new technology. This was no small feat and involved knocking down a brick wall between the lineup room and the viewing room, removing a huge one-way glass panel and accompanying brickwork, dropping new computer cables and running new electrical wiring. In addition, the room was scheduled to be furnished with 4 60” television screens hooked up to 4 computers that would display the various technology. The room was also supposed to be equipped with a 5’ oval conference table and six chairs, along with two desk workstations. The SDSC room was scheduled to “go live” on 16 January 17.

    In true CPD fashion, we all shook our heads and said, “riiiiight….sure thing…all that by 16 January? HAHAHAHA”. To our great surprise, construction work began on 02 January 17. Windows were removed, bricks were taken out, tile was laid where necessary, cable and electrical wiring dropped and all of the hard material work was completed by 13 January 17. In all honesty, it was some kind of a freaking record. Never saw a job like that get done that fast.

    But now, ALL of the stuff in the room is NEW. There are four 60” television monitors on the walls that display computer programs. The technology is amazing. It is truly faster than anything we can get from OEMC or CPIC. Great set up. The room is staffed by a civilian analyst from UofC, and two PO’s per watch. The technology includes Shotspotter, Hunchlab software, a real-time CAD computer, immediate access to all POD camera live videos as well as access to Caboodle and Clear. Everything we need to actually fight crime and more importantly, keep our guys and gals safe through real-time information, is available to us virtually instantly. We also got all of our PCAD’s replaced so they are able to utilize the new technology. The room went up live last Friday, only a few days behind schedule. In any case, have to defend Eddie and Rahm on this one. They said we would get the best, and this time, we really did.
Not to say it wasn't without some hangups and attempted shortcuts:
  • In the beginning, the room had a few desks obviously snatched from some old warehouse and a 35” tv on a rolling cart shoved in the room. That is, the room looked like that until the Chief of Staff to the Police Chief of Los Angeles (who was overseeing the implementation of the SDSC as they have them in LA) showed up in the station. He took one look around, looked at the City Facility Director and said, “and where is the table and chairs that are supposed to be in there? where are the tv’s on the wall and the computers that are supposed to be here?”. She replied that this was the best the City could do in as far as furnishings were concerned and that we would just have to make the best of it. The Chief looked right at her and said, “if this is what you’re putting in here, what happened to the money that you got to furnish the room properly? What have you done with it?” I really wish you could have seen the look on that lady’s face. She stammered some bullshit and said she’d look into it.

    Gotta love the LAPD Chief…what a GREAT guy. He was seriously taking no bullshit. Miraculously, within a couple of days, 60” televisions started to appear. Then they got mounted on the wall as required. Computers got installed. And the city once again tried to pull a fast one. They pulled out the desks from the middle of the room and stuck in an old rectangular conference table and some chairs and said we were good to go. But the LAPD Chief said, “not so fast. Where is the OVAL conference table you got money to buy and the chairs to go along with it?”. More stammering….”what’s wrong with this table?” she asked. He looked at her and said, “this room is set up in a particular way to maximize efficiency and productivity. Get the right table in here or I’m heading to the mayor’s office to tell him the room will not function as planned.” Guess what? The OVAL table got delivered yesterday

    It took a high-ranking member of an out of state police department [...] to make sure that the room got exactly the equipment it was supposed to get. He deserves a shoutout for having the biggest balls in the City over the last couple of weeks”.
So is the future here?

The 007th district is now supposedly blanketed in the new ShotSpotter technology. There are long sticks with microphones tied to tops of telephone poles completely covering the entire district boundary to boundary. They pick up the sound of the gunshots, it's sent to their office in California, determined to be bona fide, sent back as legit to the CPIC room in 007, and put over the air by the p.o. in the room to immediately dispatch a unit to the scene to catch the shooter. Modern technology to help lock up all these bad gun offenders, right? Well here's the problem: it doesn't fucking work. I work third watch in 007 and in the past couple weeks since this experiment has been active, bona fide gunshots have rarely been detected as planned. I can think of at least a dozen incidents I was at or heard on zone 6 that were not detected at all by ShotSpotter. Not even after it happened, dude was on his way to the e.r., and the crime scene tape was up. Bona fide shootings that were completely missed by the process. Instead the first alert was through 911 calls, p.o.'s on viewing the victim, or hearing the shots and driving towards them. You know, how it's always been. They've made excuses for it failing like high winds and poor calibration, but it's all bullshit. Couldn't they have gotten all the bugs out of this thing before it went live? It's gone wrong the other way, too - even fireworks have been dispatched as bona fide shots fired. The beat car has to go code it 19P. As far as I see it, this is desperation by the brass to do anything to get the homicide rate lower than 2016's total. And it's $1,000,000 that could've been better spent on the pension fund or health care for our retirees.

How much longer is Rahm going to get away
with running CPD on the cheap aka,
"Stick It In The Cops Ear" like he
vowed to do before he was even sworn in as mayor?

Running CPD on the cheap because he fails to
understand a 40% municipal budget expenditure
on Police/Public Safety?

Rahm's ire centers around "the cops not
putting anything back in the pot."

Policing/Public Safety is by it's nature,
inefficient. Any attempt to make Policing
a revenue generating entity will cost lives
and burn eye-watering amounts of tax-payer
treasure.

The majority end-users of Police services
are messy, violent, dangerous and unpredictable.

There IS no business model that can be successfully
overlaid on something like Policing/Public Safety.

Now once upon a time in our long ago, CPD used to
render a tidy yearly surplus to the municipal general fund.
the Superintendent and his staff actually had control of the budget.

Of the Police.
By the police.
For the Police.

More or less...

Shortshanks got greedy and wrested budgetary control
from the Superintendent.

And with the succession of clouted dummies as Superintendent,
it may be a good thing they don't have power over the purse.

More than $1 Billion stolen/re-allocated/re-directed from
CPD since Rahm was unfortunately elected mayor.

No wonder Rahm & Co. (and affiliate franchises)
are burning up the phones to D.C. trying to
delay the installation of a USAG who IS
going to look at how money allocated for
Police/Public Safety is being stolen in Chicago.

And then you have "Community Organizations"
getting their beaks wet in funding stripped away
from CPD in order for Rahm to pander while playing
the Catered-To Constituency against
the Ciudad Santuario in order to keep himself
in power.

"CPIC Shennanigans" barely
scratches the surface of the boldfaced
multi-billion dollar thievery and political
Fuckery endemic to Chicago.

Hopefully, Rahm Emanuel is coming to
know fear for the first time in his
mean and hateful little life.

Bravo and well done to the L.A.
Chief calling bullshit on these
decaying-assed fraudsters in Chicago.

Hopefully he has already contacted DOJ.

The rank-and-file Policeman in Chicago
is NOT the problem.

The PROBLEM is with the occupants of
the 5th floor suite of offices at
121 N. LaSalle St. and the
city council.

Watch Rahm's media minions introduce
some anti-Police counter-spin to try and win
this week's news cycle.

SCC: It took a high ranking member of an out of state police department to get the room set up right because this city is a joke. The best part is when Chief asks a simple question and no one can answer it. Where is the money, what did you do with it. He knows damn well what happened to it. Like everything in this shit hole state and city, the money is in a pocket. Remember when Chicago was referred to as the Second City? Its now in close to 5th place so enjoy the great leadership Democrats.
I think these information centers have some merit and when you look around the country, the results are well documented. The problem is the leadership in Chicago is lame from top to bottom and not in the least bit innovative it would seem.

LAPD would be a great career choice with all of its special units. The problem of course is California is NOT a liveable state and Los Angeles is not a liveable city, you cannot afford to live there.

The democrats & media invented and repeated the fergusion myth over and over again in many cities swaying public perception which devasted policing, creating a vacuum of uncontrolled savagery in inner cities, very similar to how they did it on the world stage with the arab spring creating the vacuum for isis. The question is, was it the most incompetent people of all time running government? or a diversion right out of the playbook, look here at this cluster fuck, while we rob you (taxpayer) blind. Like Deniro said in the movie Casino when he fired the cowboy pitboss over the 3 slot machine jackpots, "If you didnt know you were being scamed your too dumb to keep this job, if you did know you were in on it, get the fuck out!"

Typical example of the gross thievery that is the norm in the city of shitcago. Doesn't matter if it's pension funds,retiree healthcare, federal programs or grants. All money is redirected to suit those in power. Nobody is policing the upper echelon of city/county government and it is a free for all to steal as much as you can. Merit promotions are just another way of stealing money. All of the above are a conspiracy to defraud the taxpayer, including SB777 endorsed by FOP with Dean Angelo leading the way to kick the pension can down the road that will delay the 90% funding of our pension fund an additional 15 years, remove the liability of the city to conform with the actuarial required funding and costing the taxpayer an additional 20 BILLION DOLLARS.

A huge failure along with the horrible POD cameras that nobody is watching. A complete waste of money on these two projects that could have been put towards more bodies on the street and more money contributing to our pension. Every time they sink more money into so called crime fighting technology is a detriment to our pension. More bodies on the street is the only answer. Even if nobody is doing anything out there more bodies on the streets means you will stumble upon a shooting in 007, 011, 015, etc. even if you dont want to. Therefore a better chance of an arrest that will be tossed out anyway. But that's another issue. Be safe.

You can have all the latest razzle dazzle technology and 10,000 more police, but it will all be for naught as far as catching criminals is concerned.

2) As long as a non-police bureau such as IPRA illegally takes charge of investigating police shootings with a stated aim of looking for POLICE wrongdoing first and foremost nothing will change as far as law enforcers best efforts are concerned.

3) As long as there is a George Soros-funded States Attorney such as Kim Foxx (2 "x"s) with a stated aim of finding and prosecuting POLICE wrongdoing first and foremost, fostering the climate of a witch hunt, nothing will change as far as law enforcement best efforts are concerned.

The political class and their appointees, the exempts and bosses, have lost the confidence of the rank and file here irrevocably.

Enjoy, communist liberal cowards.

As Chicago was horrified by the amount of killings in 2016 and the way the Chicago Police Department officers have been treated, and accused every minute of the day of not caring, hey everybody grab a wind sail and go to a private island and live it up. Are you kidding me? How long has that been going on? Is that where he's been all this time instead of helping the citizens of Chicago. Wow, that is incrediable. Your home town needed you and you turned us away, and left us out to dry. Everybody look at the pics of our hero wind sailing while our beloved children are dying each day. Sickening.

City plans street redesign for Fulton Market historic district

The city of Chicago will break ground next month on a street redesign in the Fulton Market historic district to make the area more pedestrian-friendly. The improvements will include a full reconstruction of Fulton Street, which is full of potholes, and provide hookups for water and electricity to...

Wow all the unpaid bills shorting police pension fund rahm is spending so much like Barry putting us deeper in debt as he cannot even pay bills already due how do they get away with this!

Had a conversation with a couple neighborhood guys from the 003rd district. They asked my opinion about Trump, if he could do the things he said he wants to do.

Well during the talk, they said, "ya know, raising the minimum wage to 10 an hour didn't really help. The only job you can get is part time, then once you get it your ssi is reduced and after taxes you end up making bout $6 an hour. You can't live on that so you end up going back on aid cuz at least that way you're sure to have food money".

They said when obama became president their grandmother said "you just watch how much better our lives are gonna be". They said their life is worse now than it was before obama and on top of that, their grandma, along with them, voted for Trump.

They said "he's a business man, he knows how to get things done. What he's doin with all these countries, stopping them from coming here, is fine with us cuz shouldn't we matter more than someone who ain't even American"?

Just a little tidbit of the real world from a couple guys in a bad neighborhood who want a better life...and had no problem talking to a cop who happened to be white

Take from it what you will

Training on CPD was never a priority. In the academy we were trained in CPR, the training of which should be refreshed every year. For the next 29 years, until I retired, I never had a refresher course through CPD. I performed CPR twice on citizens who both tragically died. One was a two year old girl, Stepanie, accidentally strangled by a mini-blind cord. That was probably over 20 years ago and I still think of her.

Training is important but not to the powers that be.

All that nonsense and Trump calls out Chicago violence again yesterday:

http://abc7chicago.com/news/trump-calls-out-chicago-gun-violence-again/1742713/

In a statement, Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said: "Our men and women are working hard to improve public safety, and we stand ready for an increased federal partnership to build upon our work. As I've said before, we are asking for more federal agents and resources. We are asking for a higher rate of federal gun prosecution. We are asking for more funding for after-school and summer jobs programs that are proven to keep kids out of trouble."

supt asking for more money for summer programs and jobs, ahh Eddie how about asking for more federal sentences and keep the thugs in prison! How about asking for more money to hire more officers? Money for equipment? new vehicles we could trade in to the scrap yard many of the jalopies we are forced to drive! How about more funding for police pension you know boss this attracts more recruits as they would know they could get a decent pension how about that?

Typical democrat response just gimme more money! 8 years of obama and nothing but more mayhem and carnage here throwing money that is often taken is not the answer!!

And if they get "parted out" after the out of tow ER goes home; ship a new photo of the rooms to SCC.
