TRR Class - Good Point

Building on yesterday's post about the voluminous amount of information demanded by the new TRR, someone brought up this point:
  • The first thing officers need to ask with the new TRR is "is there a CR # for this incident?". If it's a Taser deploy or firearms discharge, it's automatic, don't complete the TRR until counsel is secured. If the incident isn't a Taser or shooting, ask the bad guy if he is going to file a complaint. If yes, get a supervisor and again, no TRR until you secure counsel. The new system is designed to trickbag you at every turn. Don't let it bite you in the ass. FOP should get in front of this now.
Every single TRR involving a weapon (taser, baton, gun, OC, many mechanical strikes) is going to be attached to a CL/CR number.

Guaranteed.

If not immediately upon notifying a supervisor, then during the debriefing/processing in the station. And once a CR is known to exist, we don't see how you can be permitted (or expected) to answer questions without being served Administrative Rights at the very least. Nor do we see how any answer, whether written or oral, can be answered without (A) a direct order and (B) without the FOP Disclaimer statement attached. Any supervisor asking an officer questions when the supervisor knows there is a CL/CR is (A) screwing the investigation and (B) opening themselves up for a certain lawsuit with provable punitive damages.

Has this come up in training at all? We haven't seen it in the comments. This is looking worse and worse the closer it gets to roll out.

Sounds good but just because the bad guy says "no" to making a complaint at the time doesn't mean he won't get one later. This is a disaster! The only way to protect yourselves is avoiding trouble the best you can. Remember, bosses have nothing to worry about. They're sitting inside safe physically and financially watching TV and surfing the net.

It is evident that this Order is in response to community agitators and the ACLU - meant to help them and not the police. Thanks Rahm, you fucking asshole.

Watch for bosses to sound off with, "Officer you got nothing to worry about, go ahead and fill out the report." Just look at the back stabbing Lts. and Capts. now making rank. Do you think any of them will have your best interest at heart? Think again.

Hey, here's a concept for you to mull over. Wait until the FOP irons this whole mess out. I've spoken to the guys upstairs at length about this vey issue and they're involved in discussions with the city as to the problems and potential problems about the entire Use of Force draft order. If the Department and/or city won't bend on this thing, they already have a plan, but like a good poker player they won't show their cards until they have to.

SCC, I know you've got our best interests at heart, but you are giving the Department ammo to use against us while the union is trying to rectify this.

Yes heard that many times as the knife was turned and then in federal court the words that teach "Officer on the stand state your assets and liabilities" as you sit there no bosses to be found!

Then there is this:Emanuel's latest emails: High-speed O'Hare tunnel, rapper's charter school pitch
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-rahm-emanuel-emails-ohare-tunnel-met-08-08-20170807-1-story.html
And the money shot excerpt from story:One week after the lunch, Emanuel's campaign reported a maximum $5,600 campaign contribution from Gracias, whose Chicago-based Valor Equity has invested in SpaceX — Musk's California-based company that builds and launches rockets and spacecraft. On the same day, Emanuel also recorded a second maximum contribution from Gracias' wife, Sabrina Gracias, records show.

Ahh yes typical "pay for play" in Chicago with this corrupt mayor where are the feds? Talk about low hanging fruit,if they get this guy watch all the other sheep to comply would be great, lets get rahms hollywood brother to do the reality series here when Sessions finally comes, the aldermen squealing watch how fast the pins are rolled down and then we could save millions as these self righteous thieves are marched off in orage jumpsuits the sooner the better!

Never use force!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Respond in a timely fashion. Establish a "zone of safety". Just talk to the offender until the cows come home.

I've noticed during my career that jobs take longer and longer because of all of the BS required. I could literally handle 1 or 2 jobs a night if everything is done to painful standard. EX: The hamburger that the offender is carrying. A friend or family member must be called to secure the food. The food is inventoried and then turned over to the friend or family member. Even if destroyed it must first be inventoried. Pathetic. Same for lighters.

Well our commander keeps telling us at roll call that nothing has really changed. To not be afraid to go hands on if need be. I wonder when the last arrest he made was? I sure don't hear him out there making stops or responding to any jobs. I wonder if he was a lowly blue shirt how he would feel? How he would patrol? All he cares about now is how his numbers look at compstat.

This doesn't just apply to questions from supervisors. This also applies to questions from detectives. In fact, it is even more important in when it comes to detectives, because Garrity does not apply. You must have written proof that you have been ordered to speak.

Trick bag indeed.
Why an automatic CR/CL...even before there's a complainant?
What happened is the Department feels that under community organizer Special Ed, every instance of force is deliberate attack on the community. Remember who's getting the bulk of CRs and criminal allegations.
Lo Energy Jugghead the complainant (ignotum per ignotius), has become the peoples advocate now.

Take a page from Rahms Playbook...let the lawless criminals conduct their bidness without any interference.

No thanks, already been second guessed by our supervisor for a basic ass control technique that (according to Supervisor) didn't look good on the OWC. This will only get worse with more nit-picking as force gets elevated. Unless fellow brothers and sisters calling for help, I'll be in an undisclosed viaduct somewhere enjoying Netflix. What a shame, I hate sitting still doing nothing. There's really no other option at this point in time. I've had enough trips down to Corp Counsel for my liking.

With a city Corporation Council that hands out tax dollars like candy on any bs lawsuit why wouldn't arrestees file a complaint and sue.

Don't chase anyone. Let the criminal devour one another.

Here is an idea. Have FOP hire enough lawyers to cover every district with at least two lawyers to cover POs when incidents occur that could put their careers in question. Fill out no forms, speak to supervisor's, etc. until the lawyer shows up on scene. "Dispatch, request lawyer, supervisor, ETs and ambulance. 10-4"

Wouldn't this be the time for the FOP to step up and get involved. You have to be proactive instead of reactive before the damage is done. Hire a few defense attorneys and former prosecutors to review all the new policies, orders and directives the CPD is putting out. Have them determine if they are unconstitutional, illegal and make sure they are not in violation on our contract. Then the FOP should have a procedure that protects the rights of every officer. It has to be written so everyone knows what to do and the CPD will be aware these are legal rights of the officers. Contact the other big cities like New York and LA, maybe even the FBI and use their guidelines to form our guidelines. It would be hard for the CPD and the administration to argue that we aren't allowed the same rights as other big city officers and arguably the best departments in the US. Mirror their guidelines
Now is the time to get ahead of the game and with Sessions heading the DOJ, they might hinders us less

Well it looks like even though we are rid of Deano, we still have a do nothing FOP President. Why isn't the website covering the topic? At least there is a seminar on how to protect your assets from predator lawyers. Perhaps active members should start to vette potential lawyers in the event they need one. Why depend on a FOP attorney when they can't even inform the membership of this coming disaster, just like they blew off the ISR repercussions. And why do we need Fat Head Ed's picture on the website's home page?

Just a civilian here, but I support police officers 100%. Content of the class varies from one class to another? Could this be deliberate, to sow seeds of confusion and to divide the police? Don't know how realistic this is, but it appears to me that the FOP needs to protect its members by putting together its own class. Something that helps cops defend themselves (as much as possible), to minimize the casualties during this war on the police. Not a physical class, of course, but maybe something online or downloadable. Something that details every step of your self-defense. Godspeed, men and women in blue. Decent civilians are still counting on you, but we do understand your situation. At this point, I agree with Stay Fetal.

This seems so outlandish it's hardly believable. But I have better solution: You cannot get jammed up if you don't play the game. Meaning don't engage in anything that might give even the slightest feeling that you'll have to use force or put your hands on somebody. Barring 10-1s ( and real ones not bullshit ones initiated because of poor judgement by some Johnny Rambo moron) you shouldn't be doing shit. Let them fight and maim each other don't rush to jump out of the car. Running after person with gun calls with lights or on foot and you're asking for it. You know what is more important than catching a shitbag with a pistol and two baggies in the hood? A steady paycheck and a good nights rest.
