OT Out of Control

  • The Chicago Police Department is on pace to spend nearly $200 million on overtime in 2017 — 40 percent more than last year’s record spending — despite a two-year hiring surge tailor-made to keep pace with attribution and bolster the force by 970 officers.

    The Chicago Sun-Times reported earlier this year that police officers racked up $30.9 million in overtime during January, February and March alone — cold weather months when crime typically is lower.

    That was a 26.6 percent increase over the $24.4 million spent on overtime during the same period last year, when City Hall set a new record by spending $143 million on police overtime.
But Rahm promised (again) to hire nearly 1,000 cops to alleviate the overtime expenditures, right?

Well, about those numbers - he lied. Again:
  • Nearly one year into Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's promise to increase the Chicago Police Department force by 1,000 cops, the city had gained just 37 officers, according to data secured by CWBChicago via a Freedom Of Information Act request. And since his promise was made, 17 of the city's 22 police districts have lost manpower, not gained it.

    On September 21 last year, Emanuel promised that the city will replace every cop who retires and will further increase the department’s manpower by 1,000 cops overall before the end of 2018.

    But the city's own data--comparing manpower on the day of Emanuel's promise with the day of our request for information (July 21)—shows the city is falling far short. Graduations have barely kept pace with retirements and promotions, the numbers show.

    Since Emanuel made his promise, Chicagoans have been awash in a seemingly endless river of footage showing the mayor at CPD graduation ceremonies. and jogging with legions of new recruits. But, as of July 21, all of the hype had resulted in a net gain of just 37 cops.
The Crime in Boystown blog has a bunch of helpful charts and figures - actual REAL journalism - outlining where the Districts have lost manpower and certain units have gained it. The Detective Unit gained the most, but nearly all of that increase comes at the expense of Patrol.

But Rahm's lapdog media will continue to cover for his incompetence, running the hit pieces he feeds them and ignoring the massive screwing taxpayers are getting day in and day out.

Pssst!
Hey! Local media!

The bulk of the overtime incurred is because
Rahm and his selected exempts pee their pants
during summer holiday weekends because of the
antics by Dude Inc. and denying Policemen their
regular days off and requested time due for
pre-planned family events and just trying
to cobble together an extra day or two
together because they're tired because Rahm
insists on running CPD on the cheap so he
can re-allocate budgeted monies toward
pandering to the newest protected demographic
subset...

That 26.6% increase caught my eye. Now keep in mind
it's annual: year-over-year.
Since Amazon bought Whole Foods, customer traffic went
up 25% in ONE WEEK.
City don't know how to control a budget. You got an inbred
system (West Virginia by the Lake), with generations in some
families bragging that's it's in their blood to serve. BULLSHIT.
They have been exposed to the scamming since they were six.
And Rahm in a track suit, running with the greenies! P.R. blitz.
Ask Jeff Bezos how to control a budget. If Chicago were a stock,
it would be unlisted (on the pink sheets), hawked by scumbags in

The politicians created the perfect storm. They totally underestimated the number of police officers that would retire along with the growing number of cops retiring prematurely or just resigning and looking for greener pastures. This coupled with the lack of interest in law enforcement and an antiquated forced residency policy is making it difficult to hire new officers. When potential applicants see the attack on the profession and hear about the death spiral of the pension fund, it makes it not very desirable.

From the West Town Public Safety Committee FB page (they let 12th Districts cops on via aliases)

"In an attachment to a letter dated Nov. 8, 2011, sent by Supt McCarthy to the Chicago City Council, he estimated that there would be 520 officers in the merged district (294 from the 12th District and 226 from the 13th District). That means the 12th District is DOWN 197 officers or THIRTY-EIGHT percent. The 12th District has just TWENTY-NINE more officers than did the old 12th District at the merge. This, although it is DOUBLE the geographic territory in terms of size."

I was talking to someone who works at OHare. Apparently they are receiving planeloads of "refugees" from Irma torn third world countries in the Caribbean. These "refugees" are coming in unchecked, given free healthcare checkups and bussed to a downtown hotel for safekeeping. Turns out a number of them ditch their "handlers" after getting off the plane never to be seen again. Can't anyone remember back to 1980 when Cuba emptied out all of their jails and sent the prisoners to the United Stares? Just google "Cuban boat lift" or "Mariel boat lift". Many of cubas worst criminals, murderers, rapists and robbers, ended up settling in The Logan Square neighborhood after they were granted political asylum.

OFF TOPIC...Today there was an incredible tribute, Memorial service, and Burial of HBT/Gang Crimes Officer Bernie Domagala who was shot in the forehead by a barricaded offender 29 years ago. His family and friends cared for him through extensive medical issues and treatments up to his recent death. Bernie was honored with a display of concern and honor with the presence of the Emerald Society about 20 members and instruments, all of the Mounted Patrol Horses/members, motorcycles, helicopter, color guard, K-9 Unit, recruits from the academy and 300 -500 uniformed officers, all Command Personnel, 21 gun salute and the final playing of TAPS..and the presentation of the City flag to Bernie's widow. The procession must have had 200 cars. Evergreen Park PD blocked off many streets along the route. Officers from as far away as New York City to Aurora were there to pay their respects. The Fire Dept. supplied ladder trucks to make an arched entry into the cemetery and supplied EMTs. Uniformed Firefighters were at the church service to pay their respects. A great earned honor extended to one of our heroes... Bernard Domagala.

Alderman Burke, Past Supt. Phil Cline (ret) Commander Kennedy HBT (ret) present....
but NO RAHM......

Leah Hope produced an impressive down to earth descriptive story on Channel 7 News about the original incident and todays funeral. Many other news outlets were at the funeral.

This massive amount of OT speaks to the huge issue of department understaffing.
That being said every district and unit has OT whores who are scamming and gaming the system.

The massive OT could be reduced by:
A forensic audit to ferret out the abusers

Freeing up all or most of the "hidden" officers that every district and unit has and also ending the details that has every district with 30-50 officers detailed out.

My district has enough "hidden" officers to practically man an entire roll call if these "special" officers were made available to work the street
instead of "hidden" away in do nothing positions.

Next year is the big election year. Rahm will get his "1000 new cops".
About 60 days before the election, city employees will be told to report to Homan square to be fitted for CPD uniiforms. They will then be bused to Soldier Field for a huge outdoor fake swearing in ceremony which will be dutifully recorded by a breathless and adoring media.
After the "ceremony" the truck drivers, Street and San workers and city hall clerks will return to their jobs sworn to secrecy until after Rahm's stunning re-election victory thanks to overwhelming support from the "community" who have been successfully convinced that the Laquan video was kept from Rahm by the evil police.

The public does not know that when the Police Department tells you 250 officers are assigned to your district it really is a game of smoke and mirrors. Probably 30 of those officers are detailed out and another 20 never actually work the street. Then you have another 15 on the medical. Divide that number by 3 (We have 3 watches) and you will see that we are super short of officers actually answering 911 calls. And another thing the public does not know and we cannot tell them, "Unless you are shot or killed" or the "Media pressures them" the Chicago Police Department is not going to investigate your crime.

Most of the overtime was a waste of taxpayer money and nothing to do with understaffing. The day and midnight shifts could not fill all the cars but afternoons got an extra Sergeant and eight officers (All working their days off getting 12.75 hours of overtime each). There were some weekends were you had one Sergeant and ten officers on the street working days and seven Sergeants and forty officers working afternoons. And the day shift was giving up numerous officers every weekend to go to all the parades and details throughout the city. Rahm has a money tree that is fed out of your pockets.

The stats and figures only tell a part of the story; the ultimate issue is Quality of Service and Quality of Life. Police are being forced to NOT be Proactive by Rahm & the ACLU, while the quality of Service is being reduced due to the lack of personnel. Consider my neighbor who resides in the 020th District. 020 is a low crime area, where there are not a lot of calls to respond to. So two weeks ago someone breaks into his garage and steals his $1,200 electric bicycle. Fingerprints are on his newly waxed car. He calls 911 and they give him a report number, nobody responds. Maybe I am missing something here, but isn't $1,200 worth of property worthy of a least stopping by? When he points out the fingerprints, and asks for someone to lift them, he is told "We don't do that anymore." I know of cases where an ET does not arrive until 24 hrs after the incident, and then states, if a Sgt is not present, "There's nothing here", and just leaves the scene. To some this may appear to be a minor issue or nothing to be concerned about; but it really shows, that Morale is Down, and perhaps more importantly: YOUR PROPERTY HAS LESS VALUE, AS DOES YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE IF YOU RESIDE IN CHICAGO." I cannot believe that if you live in a suburb in Lake County that you would be blown off like this! And the same applies to the rest of Cook County where State's Attorneys Reduce charges in crimes, to keep their conviction rates up. Meanwhile property, wheel, water taxes; all have gone up under Rahm. I strongly believe Rahm is done, and the McDonald Trial will be the icing on the cake. RAHM WILL NOT RUN FOR A THIRD TERM, OR HE WILL NOT GET PAST THE PRIMARY. MADIGAN WILL SPONSOR MENDOZA, AND THE QUALITY OF LIFE WILL CONTINUE TO DECLINE, because we ACCEPT IT. If you eat shit long enough, at some point it will taste good! Baby "G"

The job use to be one of the most sought after careers but after what the politicians and activists have done to it very few want to do it. And the ones that do may not be the best cannadits. Its more dangerous than ever but the financial danger has increased ten fold. More cops than ever are doing 20 years and out. A large number aren't waiting until max out. The city probably didn't expect this. The applicant pool is weak. Forcing people to move to Chicago with drive great candidates to other departments or careers. Moving here from a quiet suburb or another state just isn't very inviting.

Will be very interesting to see the response to upcoming police test. Seeing as the last one earlier this year only got 15000 applicants but only about half even showed up for the test.

Obviously hiring is not keeping up with attrition. 37 officers gained but how many stripped over IPRA and COPA headhunting?

And having seen officers that were stripped and cleared I noticed that while the officer gets his star back, the Department never gets its officer back. Most do not return to aggressive productive officers.

Who can blame them?

I have some news for you in case you've been sleeping the last couple years: NOTHING will keep these savages from shooting each other! The west and south sides will only flourish in crime. No amount of brand new rookies with their shiny new boots on the ground is going to do shit out here okay. As long as we have the ACLU and its ISR up our ass along with COPA and all that other demonizing of the police shit going on we will not be able to enforce aggressively or properly without getting sued or fired for doing our jobs. So you could put a copper at every shithead corner in the hood but as long as we have to abide by the new liberal policies we can't do shit. And these fuckers already know it. We are the bad guys and they are the victims. The south and west sides are overflowing with police service while the north is running on skeleton crews. But that's not an issue of not enough cops. That's politics and redistribution of city resources to appease a certain voter base. All smoke and mirrors because they know it won't work but it will garner votes.
So don't dog a working copper cause he wants to work a little OT so he can remodel his kitchen or send his kids to Disneyworld this year or whatever. I completely understand living within your means and not having to depend on VRI but screw any of you guys that bash it. We still have to live in this shithole city where you have to pay through the nose to raise your family in a decent neighborhood and pay these insane taxes.

Complete waste of taxpayer money. You could have a 1:1 police to citizen ratio and the murder rate would still be through the roof. Hiring more police does nothing in this city. Leftist politicians have screwed this city up beyond repair. And our closet dummycrat governor isn't helping the situation. How about trimming the fat a little and getting rid of half the aldermen. They don't do anything besides vote themselves raises anyway.

Do you remember at beginning of Rahms first term the suntimes dynamic duo of Tim Novak and Chris Fusco wrote a long hit piece against the cpd. It was at the time the ash borer beetle was causing havoc to trees throughout the city. Waiting list was about 2 years for a replacement tree. Low and behold one of the writers (believe Fusco) had a tree cut down in front of his house but miraculously he received a new tree within a week of writing the piece. Of course he went on to write, after being questioned by neighbors and other citizens, how it had zero to do with the article and carrying Rahms sack. It was just circumstance. That was payout #1 to the anti-police duo of the times. And the licking of Rahms sack has just continued for Fusco and Novak.

Just sitting here pondering Rahm Emanuel's animus
toward Chicago Policemen and an idle but eerie comparison
popped up...

>Ping!<

When Rahm first parachuted into Chicago, he was all
kinds of hot and itchy to have The Police seen as
being "on his side."

Policemen, if they aren't anything else, tend to
be damned good at reading people and their intent.

We have to be...
Who lives and goes home to their family
and who dies horribly in the violent,
unmerciful, overflowing with bloody shit-mud
streets of Chicago can pivot solely on The
Policeman's fine honed survival instinct.

We thought about the scene in the movie
"Gladiator" when Marcus Aurelius was
murdered by his vile, twisted, ambitious
and over-reaching son Commodus because
Marcus Aurelius saw that Commodus was
unfit to rule and because of that,
wanted Maximus to serve as protector
of Rome.

Maximus got word that his beloved
Emperor was dead and suspected foul play.

Maximus couldn't properly grieve and pay
his respects for Commodus hurriedly trying
to badger Maximus to pledge his loyalty to him.

Commodus hated and FEARED Maximus because he
knew that there was no way Maximus was going
to pledge loyalty to a craven and twisted
manling like Commodus.

"If Maximus isn't loyal to me, a rebellion
against my rule will coalesce around him."

Interesting similarity, no?

As it is, Rahm is DESPERATE to separate
The Police from the public good will and
is doing all he can to make good on that
separation.

That's why The War Against The Police
is at such a rolling boil in Chicago.

That's why slanted media agit-prop
is being relentlessly put forward
by City Hall.

That's why the command echelon of
CPD is openly hostile and intrasingent
toward the rank and file.

That's why Rahm deliberately tied CPD
into knots by entering into that horrid
agreement with the ACLU and #blm.

That's why the "Police Reform" bandied
about by the Alinskyites and their
mindless foot soldiers from the
"Free Shit Army" aka, Dude Inc.,
really isn't as much reform as it
is revenge.

Just take a look at what's happening
in all of America's democrat-controlled
urban centers and you'll see the same
things happening.

The end game is to destroy The Police as
a core around which fighting the left back
can solidify and become hard to eradicate.

The left is in a grand mal spasm and tantrum
over Middle America rejecting Shrillary and
the breathlessly anticipated 3rd term of Obama
in which The Police would finally be "fixed"
and "real" change would've begun to occur.

Getting back to Rahm...

He's desperate, afraid and he's running
out of time.

Once the hard and pointy conversation
pivots on him and his corruption,
incompetence and deliberate misgoverning
and it stays there for all to see and
judge for themselves?

Rahm Emanuel is DONE.

Hey Baby G, perhaps you've been retired too long becuz ET's haven't gone out for garage burglaries in quite some time my friend. Ridge impressions or no ridge impressions on your neighbors shiny waxed car. Unless it's possible to link it to some kinda burglary pattern or it's someone connected, we ain't coming out for routine burglary to garage. Like everywhere else we are exceedingly shorthanded. And if it makes you and your neighbor feel better Ive never found anything of probative value when sent to process a garage burglary or theft from auto when it involved some bosses side broad, some aldermans kid, some drunk battalion chief who left his take home CFD vehicle unlocked or anyone else that thought they deserved special treatment and the supervisors sent me/us out to put on a show. Funny how that shit will happen.

Has Rahm the sociopath ever had a friend? You know, a guy who wasn't interested in his money or power? The answer is a flat-out no. And that goes double for he and his brothers. Rule through fear.

Hey Rahm, when we vote and take away the Iraqi Palace Guard, what are you going to do? Oh yes, of course, move to somewhere else that you haven't had a chance to fuck up, and isn't so threatening. Carpetbagger. Your whole candidacy was based on a lie, and that lie is the dress in the attic. You never were and never will be a Chicagoan.

I was talking to someone who works at OHare. Apparently they are receiving planeloads of "refugees" from Irma torn third world countries in the Caribbean. These "refugees" are coming in unchecked, given free healthcare checkups and bussed to a downtown hotel for safekeeping. Turns out a number of them ditch their "handlers" after getting off the plane never to be seen again. Can't anyone remember back to 1980 when Cuba emptied out all of their jails and sent the prisoners to the United Stares? Just google "Cuban boat lift" or "Mariel boat lift". Many of cubas worst criminals, murderers, rapists and robbers, ended up settling in The Logan Square neighborhood after they were granted political asylum.

Letter from FOP to Sun-times is a decent start. But, FOP writes a newsletter and FOP should do some investigative reporting and writes articles about reporters.

Tim Novak alleged that he spotted a red truck parked on the city block where he resided and began his investigation into the Hired Truck Program. That was, and still remains bullshit. Someone uncovers a massive criminal, political activity because they see a single red dump truck with a sign saying it was leased to the city of Chicago's Hired Truck Program. The Hired Truck story was given to Novak how so many other stories are given to reporters - by the Mayor's office.

In 2004, Mayor Daley gave Novak the lead for that story to cover up his nephew killing someone. Daley, as well as the current mayor, gives up stories to deflect the attention away from a story which is more directly related to them. The murder, the misuse of financial pension investments were stories kept from the public when they had more potential criminal charges and personal damage to Daley. The same applies now.

So, FOP must send people to Novak's residence and other reports with a recorder and ask questions about their story and what week the connections to Mayor Daley, etc.
