RETIREE ALERT!!!!

IMPORTANT - IF YOU KNOW A RETIREE, REACH OUT TO THEM.

Phone, social media, e-mail.

Of course, this breaks on a Friday night/Saturday morning:
  • Burglary to storage unit at a "facility [that] holds the paper work for police pension". Lock was cut to unit, unsure what exactly the unit might contain and/or to what extent things may have been compromised.

    Facility is the "Store Your Things - Self Storage" at 2325 N. Clark Street in Lincoln Park.

    Reference RD# JA-338630 - Event# 1718812075

    ....the unit contains a sizable amount of retiree pension files/information and that one or two of the storage containers had been manipulated/rifled through but they were unable to tell if anything was missing
Why this would be stored at a self-storage facility rather than someplace a wee bit more secure is a real puzzler, except that it's Chicago and everything is done half-assed.

There had to be a better way to lose files since Dean Andrews botched the Koschman case. The city needed as new way to "Lose" files, and explain it away.

Since PO's always take a few days for leaving their weapon in a locked car, we fully expect the city will give "just due" to the city employee that came up with this solution.

And...BTW was the city fully paid up in rent of the storage unit?

SCC, did you hear about the Lansing cop who is being fed to the wolves for "pinning" an African American boy down on his lawn, Well apparently the media left out a small fact. The incident stated when a group of black teens beat a white teen on the officers lawn. Little fact the media first left out. Now Tom Dart is going to lead the investigation on the cop

Interestingly enough, if you go to the Google Street View of that address and click on the front door, Google Maps takes you right inside the building. It's strange that a "secure facility" would allow someone to post images from inside its building, it makes casing the place sooo easy. I noticed a couple things clicking around inside. The views are from the second floor, one of the windows is not secure, with an extension cord going outside. What floor was the storage unit on? It looks like you can only click from that window to the elevator...hmmm. Also, there's a sign by the elevator that says "All Activities Monitored by Video Camera". You would think the break-in would be recored on disk somewhere, making it easy to see whodunnit.

Deja Vu all over again
Google: The 1973 Fire, National Personnel
Records Center | National Archives
(related stories will appear below)
This 1973 fire destroyed millions of service records
for The Department of Veterans Affairs ("V.A. Hospital").
In other words, veterans had to "prove" they served in the
Armed Forces to receive V.A. medical care and benefits.
DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!
Find every pay stub, W-2 forms, tax returns, ect. relating to
start date, incidents, promotions, retirement date that you can
lay your hands on. Write out a list of where you were stationed,
who you served with, supervisors, superiors, ect.
This could be a random hit, but better to be safe.
Ask for a copy of your service records on MONDAY.
With all the Budget Breakdowns, Bond Downgrades, ect.,
it would be all too convenient for them to say "We can't find
your records." That's exactly what the Veterans were told.

I'm confident that (if it's just paper work that's stored) the struggling CPS alumnus burglar was unable to unravel or even read the complex scrolls. Surely, newer docs are in the cloud.
But who knows just how "anonymous" the storage locker ownership is.
If someone's cousin working there tells another cousin that names and numbers exist in boxes of paper work belonging to PABF, that info is easily sold to foreigners for fraudulent purposes.
If only the PABF lockers were the only ones entered, then I'd be looking at the employees.

• Nevertheless, everyone should put in a 90 day Credit Fraud Alert (free) at Experian/TransUnion/Equifax - just in case, or whenever applying or supplying anyone even legitamate sources with your SSN, DL or DOB. Do this 2-3x a year, it's free.
It's essentially what LifeLock does for around $120.

The best the pension board can afford is a self storage facility? Does anyone give a f___ about us? This is totally unacceptable. A warning email is not hard to send.

These files should have been scanned into digital images and held on a secure server. Authorized personnel would be able to access the record in seconds from their desktop. Nothing ever lost or misfiled or illegally altered. It's how real "big boy" organizations operate. Of course Chicago government is like it's run by a bunch of toddlers.

Who is surprised at this level of disrespect? Not I, that's for sure. 9.5 or as I refer to him,💩, has made his feelings about the CPD well known even before he won his initial election. If he had his way, we would all be on Social Security and the pension would evaporate.

Iron Mountain is the gold standard in off-site storage
of important documents since 1951.
There are also competitors, but "Self Storage" is
definitely delerection of duty, betraying the years of
service documents generated by dedicated public
servants. You get what you pay for.
Iron Mountain stores physical documents and makes
back-up copies on microfilm, microfiche, and now
computer files/ cloud storage.

***************************************

That's absolutely correct. Making the transition from paper files to digital files can be tricky (I've done it). Current matters are a little trickier because you might want to have some paper versions in addition to the digital version. But going 100% digital for closed/archived files is a complete no-brainer. Scan 'em. Make backup copies. Shred the originals to save space and for security purposes. You can put thousands of boxes of files on a small portable hard disk and/or in the cloud. They're always there when you need them. Nothing ever gets lost, mis-placed, or mis-filed. Like I said, a complete no-brainer for closed/archived files.

Anyone who would store physical files in a storage locker is completely clueless and/or just look to throw revenue to his uncle. Typical Chicago bullshit.

Call the next case. Not a cop.

If they are actually the really old, unscannable files they claim to be, the Mormans have a research center that can copy all kinds of old
records. They know how to handle and store documents. They use the info for their family research.
How about the Chicago Police History people? Used to have a retired Captain from the old 012 district. They could store the documents better than the way they are now! Could have been your grandfather or great grandfather's records sitting around rotting. They are a part of the history of the former great department we used to know.
