Interesting

Moves on a Friday night so the media misses 'em (multiple e-mails):
  • Total of 20 something moved in the ASA's office , mostly supervisor demotions and promotions.  2 moves were two newer ASA's to Kim foxx's public integrity unit.  It's believed the unit is getting beefed up to review police officers arrests.

  • Foxx has started to clean house. Deputy chiefs, supervisors and some ASA's have gotten the Ax yesterday. She is putting in "her people". Big changes. Contact your people it's known through all the court houses
Of course, the media will ignore anything that interferes with the Machine of they were told to.

Also, the Department suddenly returned to the District Station Supervisor (Desk Sergeant) reviewing arrest reports for completeness and the Watch Operations Lieutenant (Watch Commander) approving Probable Cause without any sort of general announcement, review or training.

Anyone know what's going on?

The changes in operation, virtually return Lts. to their former roles as Watch Commanders, but nobody wants to say that until it is in a contract. However, the "Menacing" part of all this is the choice of words in how arrests will be assessed. The terms: "Police Legitimacy", and "Social Justice" are included as is "Proactive", and "Disciplined". IF ANYONE OF YOU IS STILL OUT THERE RUNNING AND GUNNING SO YOU CAN STAY ON TAC AND WEAR YOUR "OPERATOR'S BEARD", Hair Gel AND DESIGNER JEANS; BROTHER YOU ARE A FOOL OR VERY NAIVE! It's Over, my Brothers and Sisters, It is Over. If the fact that you have taken an oath to Serve and Protect; yet every action that you take must be viewed through the prism of "Social Justice" and "Police Legitimacy" implies that YOU have not been Fair or Just in the past. And when we talk about "Legitimacy", consider the Lieutenants and bosses making these assessments of YOU; that includes "Illegitimate Lieutenants", who were fed test answers, or received two or three Merit Bumps? The Whole Command Staff resembles a meeting of Illegitimate Trick Babies!Put them on Maurie Povitch and they can do DNA tests to see who their Baby Daddy/Sponsor was!

This was done because the lt.s did nothing and came and went at will. Now they have to have a lt. in the chair at all times. The city in their effort to stick it to the members and cut costs eliminated th WC spot which was not necessary, to eliminate paying the lt.s WC pay. Now hey want to bring back something they eliminated and not pay for it. So if a DSS approves charges do they get out of grade pay? This will see a flurry of grievances as it should.

Everything McCarthy and Weis did to the Department was wrong. They closed Districts, Detective Areas, allowed the Detective rank to dwindle with the patrolman's, they got rid of Watch Commanders and desk Sergeants, they gave us a work schedule that couldn't be accommodated with current equipment, training is not available and the promotional process exploded in scandal after scandal. The moves this week putting back Watch Commanders and desk sergeants is an admission by the Administration that they made huge mistakes over the last ten years. Maybe they can fix some of them.

We all know Mayor Emmanuel pulled the strings on outsiders that didn't know any better. Rahm did this to the Department. Rahm owns what was done to a once mighty police department but Jody, Garry and now Ed wear the shame that goes with being complicit in this travesty. They took the money, the thirty pieces of silver, to be the public face of this gutting. They are as despicable as Rahm.

This has been talked about for a long time, since McCarthy left (going back to WC doing arrest reports). They really want Captains back as WC, but don't want to have to give back pay to Lts who have been doing WC job since that time, because the arbitrator in the last Lts contract said that Lts could file for backpay as out of grade Capts if they ever brought back Capts as WC. City is trying to figure out a way around that.

Foxx has orders from the Cook County Board President ( BIG FOOT) to decrease drug prosecution and minor violations that keep poor people in Cook County Jail on her dime. T.V. Tommie Dart is dancing the tune BIG FOOT is playing because he wants to be mayor. Foxx will concentrate on police issues that make headlines, it's all good when they have to step on the police to reach the goals they set for their party.

It was lost in the news about 5 or 6 days ago so I'm assuming the extra help is for that reason. I could see her going very very hard on watts and his crew. I got a feeling this is not over for watts, not over for him at all. Allegedly there are over 2000 plus arrests from watts and his team they are reviewing so that's what the extra bodies are for I suspect.

LOL! You hit the nail on the head! I asked the Academy staff about the DSS position and training during Sgt. School. They said don't worry about it kid! Your desk crew will show you what you need to do! They just said buy the desk crew lunch the first few days. I couldn't believe this was the DSS training. What a joke!

Looking back at my tenure with CPD, my dad was right when he said take the ISP job, this city sucks! He wasn't even an officer. He jokes and says you'd be an ISP Captain by now instead of a CPD sgt. A former coworker is an ISP Sgt. making 180k per year with a car and living in Will County. I screwed the pooch on this one!

I am a retire Lieutenant/Watch Commander who retired three and a half years ago from a west side district on the first watch.

That is WATCH OMMANDER, not District Station Supervisor.

I always answered the phone, "(Blank) District Watch Commander’s Office Lieutenant (Blank)".

Fuck McCarthy, I signed everything as "Watch Commander", not District Station Supervisor.

Even my business card said, “Watch Commander”
What could they do to me, I was on midnights in the ghetto.

I must have kicked back about one of every four or five arrest reports and told the P.O.s to fix them for grammar or probable cause and occasionally they had to help them rewrite a report. It was a teaching moment but I hated it when some goof came in with his hat turned round and said, "It's OK, they'll just throw it out in court."

"Well then I'll save you the trouble and throw it out now."

I never got a "Meritorious" promotion. In all the years I wrote arrest reports and all the years I approved arrest reports I never got sued or indicted. More importantly, none of the P.O.s I worked with were ever sued or indicted over any arrest report I approved.

Fuck McCarthy. That's the difference between being a District Station Supervisor and being a Watch Commander and a Boss. God Bless the CPD.

I got a feeling not for too much longer... I have no doubt the public integrity unit will take a few cases and ship a few to the Feds who will swoop in and take the whole thing over.

Besides Wheezie shows up late, leaves early and is gone for numerous hours in between so when would she even be around to attempt to approve an arrest report?

To all police officers. I retired from the States Attorney's Office a short time ago. No, I wasn't a clouted hack but a hard working experienced prosecutor and friend to police. A member of The executive staff of Kim Foxx was formerly employed
by Loevy and Loevy. Not good for the Offfice and not good for
police. This person is a deputy chief of staff.

To 3/4/17 @ 10:44.... thankfully you are retired. You sound like a sociopath, like this job was your everything. It's just a job, not a position in life, for life. You were a boss? Only in your mind......please enjoy your retirement for this job will survive w/o you and me.

I am thankful to be retired, and I maintain contact with many people from my "work family". Most of my real family died or moved away.

"sociopath"? Look up that word. I am and continue to be a family member of many people I worked with over the years. I was their mentor, coach, and "Godfather" and glad to be that. I go to their weddings, christenings, funerals and I get calls for advice at all hours of the day and night. So who is the "sociopath"?

P.S. I just ordered two cases of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. One to spread around here and one for U.S. Military. But! No cookies for you!

With Kim Foxx taking office, Cook County has no State's Attorney anymore and two Public Defenders. Foxx has now gotten rid of nearly all of the real prosecutors. Of the few she kept, they have been beaten into submission out of fear that they will be chopped as well if they don't tow the Foxx anti-police/pro-criminal agenda. The new people in her administration are, indeed, lawyers such as her policy advisor who was previously at Loevy & Loevy (the firm that has made millions by suing the police and, in many cases, falsely accusing good police officers of misconduct in the hopes of scoring big bucks from the City. Foxx's mission, at Preckwinkle's strict direction, is to dismantle the criminal justice system in such a way as to make it much harder to hold criminals accountable and, at the same time, employ extreme scrutiny of the police. In the end, criminals will benefit, police officers will be caused to become even more fetal, crime will pay even more than in already does and, sadly, more poor black people will lose their lives to violence that didn't have to be. Hard working Chicaoans of every stripe, will have no choice but to take their families and their tax dollars somewhere else that is safer and better managed and the tax based erosion will continue full tilt. Truly sad and a major part of the tragic decline of this great American city.

To the retired Lt. :

Great post, don't be discouraged by the comment calling you a sociopath, obviously from a disturbed goof who knows nothing.
Many of the young officer of today don't know the meaning of the term "Boss" as applied to our profession. Possibly the meaning has changed over the passing years and I am now out of touch. The term Boss used to be a compliment given to a supervisor who actually cared and mentored his subordinates and attempted to give them the benefit of his or her experience.

I can tell from the post that is what you tried to accomplish during your time on the job. Possibly the poor goof never had a supervisor who cared and had the backs of his troops like you did. His loss but if he actually is a PO he should know better and recognize some one who actually cares.

If he really believes what he wrote I would not care to be anywhere near him let alone work in the same car for a full tour with a goof like that.

Enjoy your retirement, there are still plenty of young officers out on the street who understand and appreciate what you accomplished in your career. Possibly some who learned a thing or two from your mentoring and will pass some of it along and help the next generation.

Retired Watch Commander,

I'm kicking back your comment to this post.

Please correct all spelling and grammar, then resubmit.
-------------------------

"...Also, the Department suddenly returned to the District Station Supervisor (Desk Sergeant) reviewing arrest reports for completeness and the Watch Operations Lieutenant (Watch Commander) approving Probable Cause without any sort of general announcement, review or training. "

I am a retire Lieutenant/Watch Commander who retired three and a half years ago from a west side district on the first watch.

That is WATCH OMMANDER, not District Station Supervisor.

I always answered the phone, "(Blank) District Watch Commander’s Office Lieutenant (Blank)".

Fuck McCarthy, I signed everything as "Watch Commander", not District Station Supervisor.

Even my business card said, “Watch Commander”
What could they do to me, I was on midnights in the ghetto.

I must have kicked back about one of every four or five arrest reports and told the P.O.s to fix them for grammar or probable cause and occasionally they had to help them rewrite a report. It was a teaching moment but I hated it when some goof came in with his hat turned round and said, "It's OK, they'll just throw it out in court."

"Well then I'll save you the trouble and throw it out now."

I never got a "Meritorious" promotion. In all the years I wrote arrest reports and all the years I approved arrest reports I never got sued or indicted. More importantly, none of the P.O.s I worked with were ever sued or indicted over any arrest report I approved.

Fuck McCarthy. That's the difference between being a District Station Supervisor and being a Watch Commander and a Boss. God Bless the CPD.

Who did the State's Attorney hire from Loevy & Loevy?

To 3/4/17 @ 10:44 ... I see now why the CPD is in the state of decay it's in because our super hero, the retired watch commander "boss" left the job. Don't know how we have made it this long with out your invaluable experience, loyalty and all around caring not to mention your superior leadership skills and thorough job knowledge. Is your name Clark Kent because you have made yourself to be super man. I know your type, your always right ( even when blatantly wrong), you brag about your days as the real police ( but you really were an inside guy who never made a pinch, or worse a coward), and you really believe your are superior to everyone else and are truly indispensable and above all you believe it's all legit. Enjoy retirement and get a life away from this job.
Oh and to the A6 Detective, I know you.... you were the do nothing phone guy at the desk.
