What Manpower Shortage?

So the message now is "Lie to Aldercreatures:"
  • Today all Commanders got called down to hq and got their asses reamed by the 1st for having the audacity to tell alderman the truth about being short officers. KN told them in no uncertain terms that he will DUMP any commanders who say they are short manpower. He told them he dares any of them to mention manpower at Compstat and promises they will be demoted on the spot.
Of course, aldercreatures accepted the IG report on non-cheating, despite the mountain of evidence that is currently being shredded at IAD, so they probably wouldn't recognize truth as opposed to lies anyway.

There's no manpower shortage. They just like paying overtime for people to work their RDOs. Having multiple down cars each night is just a fun strategy, not the result of not having enough people to man all the cars. There are so many evidence techs that crime scenes are being processed practically while the crime is still being committed. The FTO program is running smooth as silk. There's at least 3 FTOs per PPO. The Pops are definitely not sitting at the desk or riding around with sergeants. We have 13,500 officers on the street at all times. Yeah, that's the ticket. Fully staffed and morale is through the roof. Everything's fine, just fine. Violent crime? Totally unheard of. Safest city in the world. Property crime? Not here. Fat Eddie and his totally legit band of lieutenants have everything under control. The command staff is made up of only the best and brightest minds in law enforcement.

When the issue of manpower comes up, it's getting to the point of having Gen. Patton command a fake army, complete with rubber tanks, in order to fool the Nazis. At least we were deceiving an enemy during WW II. Meanwhile our gold badge buffoon brigade merely tries to deceive its citizens and AlderCreatures. And Reichsfuherer Navarro tries to command the respect of the gold badge buffoons but it's hard to respect him when they all know that he is lying. Unfortunately, some of our front line officers are still risking their careers and/or lives while believing in Naboring Nabob Navarro as he prepares to take over the CPD.

Look at things from the city of Chicago's perspective- manpower is down but productivity is still up and crime (except homicides and shootings) are down.

At check off I look at the citation folder and it is full of parking tickets, movers, anovs. The other tray has a bunch of tows or impounds.

Face the truth- we officers are doing a great job and do not need additional manpower. Keep up the good work officers- the mayor and alderman appreciate it.

Nothing on Comey SCC? I listened to a lot of it, Marco Rubio was excellent. John MCCain on the other hand should retire immediately. Anyways, it really sounds like this guy is mad he got fired and now he's crying about it. The President told me several times I was doing a good job. So what. The president said the Russian investigation is a cloud and is stopping me from moving forward how long is this going to take? Well Mr Persident you're not a target of the investigation and we can't rush these things. BS you rushed the Clinton email investigation! And what's wrong with "hoping" General Flynn is going to be alright and any leader would want his top people to be loyal to him.
So after his meetings with Trump he runs out to the car and writes everything down in memos? Something he has not done with anyone else. Sounds like a set up to me. Oh yeah then he admitted to leaking these memosn to a friend so they would be published in the newspaper. Seriously wtf your the head of the FBI and you just admitted leaking confidential documents in hopes of making yourself look better. No wonder Trump fired this guy. Comey also admitted he never questioned Trump or conferred with his lawyers regarding their private discussions. So basically he was alright with all of it until he got fired. Whatever grow some balls and question the President or simply move on.

Break down the spin:
He's only saying that Commanders not to tell AlderThieves there's a manpower shortage, that isn't denying a shortage, it's only hiding it.
And it's true, in their infinite wisdom, HQ truly believes...there's no shortage when you have "the allotted percentages" (on paper) assigned to District law enforcement.
The Merit appointed professional pencil pushers love to play the numbers game.
For the citizen troll: That total allotment includes admin house mice, CAPS, school cars, tact and mission teams (subject to deployment elsewhere).
Actual manned Beat cars on the street available for calls always short. Never a shortage in the office.

Maybe HQ should clear out their excess and make some parking spaces available at the 35th St lot.
Hey KN - newsflash - Compost paper shuffling is not police work.
Maybe CAPS shouldn't have more manpower than a 1st Watch roll call.
Maybe there's too many soft spots like being assigned to schools, down in the stations and tact missions on the PCAD but assigned to another district.
And really, how many "drivers" do Merit Hacks really need?

That KN knee jerk reaction came from City Hall.
A real and honest boss would never bow to such nonsense.
We are short manpower on the Watch, if he can't stop in a few Districts and look at the schedules then he's an idiot.
It's time he jump off that 3x Merit high horse, just once and stand on your own by supporting the Beat Guys.

Just when we thought we got rid of the bullshit under JFed, Gmac and Special Ed, we get another goof sidling elbowing his way up to Rahm.

Just another shake-your-head face-palm story from Police Headquarters. It's the District Commanders (and the DSS of every watch) that know if their districts are short on manpower and it's damn well their job to speak up about personnel shortages. Unfortunately, this city and department are run like a third-world banana-republic junta. Our bosses spend more time and effort covering up the truth then making any meaningful management decisions. They should create a new commendation ribbon for our merit elite. A bright yellow ribbon (the color of cowardice) with either a dollar-sign, banana or turd pin smack-dab in the middle.

While the department is ridiculously short its the district watches that really feel the pinch.

The units and HQ are always adding to their staffs while further taking away from Patrol.

Also every District has way too many people detailed out and way too many hidden/special people tucked away and not available to work the street.
Who feels the pinch the most from all that BS? The watches that struggle to find the manpower to man even the basic staffing of beat cars.

I believe it was 1981. Four sectors magically became three sectors. The 40 sector in each district just disappeared. POOF! The remaining three sectors and the beats became larger to accommodate the change. We also received our first contract which included a raise, but it took a couple more years to ratify it and have a start date. We would have never had a contract if our friend, Mayor Jane Byrne, had not been the Mayor.

This is their creative thinking out-of-the-box strategy that justifies the six figure salary they collect. Overwork and over-stress these officers until they break and then wind up on the 6:00 pm news for making a controversial split second decision. Then fire them or spar them with that sanctimonious shit they are programmed to spew "We do not condone those actions", "We do not train our officers to do that", "We will not tolerate such behavior", etc. Continue down this path of cancelling days off and restricting time due, and at some point people are going to say "fuck it, I need some time off" and they will hit the medical to get it. Argue all you want whether it's wrong or unscrupulous, but the fact is everyone needs some R&R and will get it some way. The problem is this department has been morphing into a top-heavy pseudo corporate organization, where you have far too many over-paid administrators and supervisors with redundant responsibilities micro-managing fewer and fewer subordinates into miserable performance for the sake of appearing necessary or important. They continue cutting real-time needed personnel while creating more upper-level positions allocating finances toward paying those inflated salaries instead of hiring more hands-on workers. Meanwhile, less gets accomplished with more people being payed to watch.

Then he really won't like the fact that I sent an anonymous email this morning to the Emma Mittz alderman office about how all the shootings in her ward could have been prevented if the city gave the district the adequate amount of police cars. Instead we have bike patrols up that these new guys don't even like working. Putting bike patrols up in the parks makes absolutely no sense when all the shootings occur on North Ave and on Division. Put up more cars, more visibility, and a better chance of shootings to go down. Escamerit and the shot callers downtown are ABSOLUTELY FUCKING RETARDED!!!!!

NO PERSONALS ALLOWED IN 012 ON 3RD WATCH TODAY.

So, LT Georgas tells all the cars on 3rd watch in 012 that no Personals will be allowed today due to numerous festivals and events and cars being stretched thin.
Aka, short on manpower.


You are right First Deputy Navarro, there is no man power shortage. Only a shortage of Police.

As soon as I had 20 years and the age I retired immediately and left the state. I now work for an agency that appreciates and values my contributions and efforts. Don't be afraid of moving out of state... get out now. You don't have to continue putting up with the ghetto BS on the job and off the job.

There is a manpower shortage, but there's no shortage of members of the CPD command ranks who have been promoted over and over through the merit process. While it is true that you can have good and bad bosses no matter how they were promoted, is it too much to ask that command members pass even one promotional exam? Shouldn't they have to prove their knowledge of directives and their proficiency regarding situational job knowledge even once?

The whole merit process was sold to us as a way to promote good police officers who don't test well, and yet it has always been used as a reward for the clouted - the cronies and sycophants of the exempt members and politicians.

And the poster boy for everything wrong with the merit process is the very person trying to conceal the manpower shortage, our very own first deputy superintendent.

He's full of suck hole shit! The media can do a FOIA and get all the memos of the "No time off" BS that just came out. Fathers day weekend all the way past July 4th. When the city hired police and didn't slash manpower that never happened. It's as plain as day. The city didn't hire and huge numbers just retired or quit with a lot more coming. The media should do a numbers search comparing today with 8 years ago.

Best comment I've read in a while...... can't stop laughing. The most dangerous part about lowering the hiring standards is that someone who really shouldn't be hired in the first place due to incompetency could end up being your supervisor!!

If these "Commanders" gave one shit about their men and women, then all 22 district "Commanders" would mention the severe manpower shortage at Compstat and dare the "First" to do his "worst". Imagine that headline.

22 Chicago police Commanders demoted in one day.

They would earn the undying respect and gratitude of their subordinates for bringing attention to the dreadful mismanagement of the CPD by HQ and City Hall, jeopardizing the safety of officers working the street and citizens who actually need the police but have to wait an hour for a cop to show up when called.

For once, I would call one of these "Commanders" "boss" and not be over the top sarcastic about it.

Nah, what am I thinking? You couldn't find five out of 22 to make a statement of solidarity with their troops like that.

Northside districts have been hiring back supervisors on their RDO's for at least the last month. This is just to put 1 Sgt on the street. In the meantime the calls to Dep Chief Nagode's office asking for replacements go unanswered. I'm sure the OT is nice but it's all coming to a head for the 7th period. Between furloughs and burn out they'll be lucky to have a DSS in 16,17,20, and 24.

What that retired Lt needs to realize is that the dept is short all ranks.
This isn't 1990 or 2000.
Times have changed dramatically since he worked CPD.
A supervisors job and dramatically increased since he worked CPD.
But hey retired Lt. Angone, I'm sure you have all the answers and are willing to come back and show us all how it's supposed to be done! NOT
Now go away and enjoy your retirement.

The commanders don't need city hall or the CPD to help them with the manpower shortage. They do it to themselves, they are the biggest cause. Look around your district and unit and see how they make use of the manpower. They are their own worse enemy

In a personal situation, I was introduced by a mutual friend to 1st. Deputy Navarro. He listened to the intro for a few seconds until he determined that I could be of no immediate value to his career (i.e. networking) then he merely just turned away like I was invisible.
I said to him, "Geez, nice talking to you"(sarcastically)but he just didn't get it.
They should name a Street after him... yup, One Way.

This is nothing new.during phil's reign and his silly DOC meetings, he, nor malloy would accept the fact that most of the senior guys on tact teams/watch had their furlough, and the rest were in court, leaving you with 0....Zero tact teams on the street on days. not to mention how many times tact was detailed out for all the festivals. Maybe it's different now if they are filling tact with reverse seniority. how the fuck can you deny the fact that guys are on furlough and/or detailed out of the district. No Fucking Manpower Period.

One thing I'll never forget from early on in my CPD career. I had about 2 or 3 years on the job and was "Asked" by the desk SGT to drive an off duty SGT to some errand for something. We got to discussing merit SGT promotions on the way. This SGT asked me "What do you think a merit promotion consists of?" I looked at the SGT and unfortunately and naively said "Isn't it for Coppers who work their asses off in appreciation for their hard work?" The SGT laughed hysterically and said "Kid you don't know much about this department do you?" A couple weeks later some brand new to district clout baby was recommended and promoted to SGT meritoriously!" I guess I shouldn't have been surprised at that point! You live and learn everyday on the job just how corrupt, dysfunctional, clout laden, and fucked up this department really is, so many totally clueless, incompetent bosses out there running the show, hand and hand with Rhamicide. God help the poor short timers with a long career ahead!!

But the commander will be crying he is short manpower and half the blog will agree. I'm not saying we aren't short, just saying the bosses could do a whole lot better with what they have. Everyone can see it unless you are Stevie Wonder

I think you meant too many but I get your point.
HQ and units are usually adequately staffed if not overstaffed.
The same can be said for all the special and hidden people at the district level..... they never seem to feel the squeeze.
Only the poor grunts manning the watches and beat cars feel the squeeze.

CPD is woefully short but due to their fucked up priorities and piss poor management it is the district watches that get royally screwed.

Try from the weekend of the 16th through past the July 4th weekend. Why don't they just cock block our whole goddamn summer while they're at it to satisfy this community they keep pandering to as if any amount of police down on the west or south sides is gonna quell the savagery. So... Go ahead and give them my tax dollars, strip me of my police tools and now I guess my personal fucking time the little relief where I get to de- stress from this bullshit job and its crushing politics. Yeah the dept cares about your mental health alright. I think they'd rather appear like they're doing something politically about the violence that we as the police will never be able to fix than the fact that we have some the highest sucide rates of any dept.

Keep adding bodies to Saturation gangs and guns. Clearly they are doing a great job since crime is down. Since no one can really do police work send them back to where the help is needed.
Return these people to the districts, if your 9161 get into a beat car maybe then personals will be allowed again.
