Area West on Tap

Supposedly, Special Ed is finally moving forward on correcting the biggest error of the McCompStat era - closing two detective Areas. Welcome to Area West:
  • 011 and 015 are driving just about all of the west side violence, so Area West will be created out of the remnants of Area North encompassing 011, 014, 015, and 025. The meeting 08 November will give people the option to stay or leave.
Interesting rumor. It's been going around the D unit for nearly two years that Area Four will reopen as West. Looks like it might finally happen. Lord knows we need another two or three exempt spots to fill and drain the pension fund.

UPDATE: It's a RUMOR people. It's subject to change, especially the list of Districts. Stop commenting like this is written in stone - we can see a couple of issues that need to be ironed out already, like why not make 010, 011 and 015 all part of the same Area since all of the gang conflicts in North Lawndale, Austin and Garfield intersect anyway?

So they will take existing people (detectives), put them in a different building, with a new name, and expect different results? Genius.

OT
The teletype is out requesting applications for Captain SES. Applications are due no later then 07 Dec. keep in
Mind that out of 131 that we’re found to be eligible from the last batch, 31 were sent to school and only 12 were actually promoted leaving 18 still trained ready to go (1 retired). But who are we fooling? The apps are due Dec 7th, between Xmas and New Years and conducting all of the interviews it will be March before they make anyone off that list. Why is March so important? Well that’s when Lie Tenant Fenner hits her 2 years as a Lt and becomes eligible for Captain SES. Also, March is the Mayoral election, April is the runofff election and Kidney Bean will most likely be replaced shortly thereafter. Remember, Earned not Given.

Area west will take 011, 014, 015, and 025?

Meanwhile Area Central has 001, 002, 003, 008, 009, 010, 012, and 018?

Why would Area West only take 4 districts, and leave Area Central with 8 districts?
Especially from a detectives standpoint, a lot of the BS shootings and murders and other assorted nonsense spills back and forth across Roosevelt between 010 and 011. Why not make 010 am Area West district also, in an effort to keep tabs on the problems that affect both of those districts? If they are in separate areas, a lot of intelligence and understanding will be lost.

But that’s likely why the city will do it, since when does the city make sense in anything it does?

Just had lunch with a table of retired members.

Most of all of us worked west side for entire length of career.

The biggest point discussed at the table was why this west side area was closed.

The best we could assume was the savings they made closing the Area down and consolidating the Areas.

We all can see how well that worked out. Now look at the districts that were closed down and consolidated.
Anyone see a rise in crime in these districts?
What a disaster this Department has turned into.

The only constant of eddies failed leadership is that the goof keeps the same exempts in power they are nothing more than a divisive clown show,but at least the coppers can laugh at them to make it more plausible!

The closings were ShortShanksRahm’s idea of telling the sheepy public they’re saving money doing more with less.
Mostly an anti police measure and big lie to give an optic of more manpower by piling PO’s/Dets from closing on building and stuff them into another.
Gmac just went along with this grand scheme like a lap dog thinking he had some say-so in managing the overcrowded (not over manpowered) Areas and Districts
Then after 3 ho-hum, better than Ed years, gets dumped. Ha-ha. Who’s yo daddy?

Lamest of lame ducks, the incompetent, challenged Right Man for the Right Time™️, RevDr Special Ed PhD...doesn’t, never has, can’t make a decision to “open” at new Area, District, Unit or has balls to even hint such a plan.
- He can however pad the ever-loving shit out of a HQ HouseMouse Contingent (and pass out test answers for meritorious bypasses).

I think even the lowly flunky patrolman to captain knew closing Districts and Areas was going to be a huge mistake.
Many residents knew this too, but a majority still voted Shortshanks and Rahm anyway.
Belmont-Western is on the high income property list and could be the next ‘move-yo-shit-out-the-doe’ and over to Harrison & Kedizee. That’s how Special Ed would say he “opened” A4. Still plenty time for Rahm to screw us over.

Save the rumors, high hopes and keep fingers crossed that the next sensible, commonsense mayor will and already re-evaluated the logistics of police coverage for the coming year. Exception would be anti police Prickwrinkle and LightLoafer.

Garry McCarthy fooled Rahm Emmanuel into making him our superintendent. He promised him reduced crime with a reduced force. We will be leaner and meaner via compstat. Compstat has always been a management by manipulation game. Does not address crime at all, if you ever look at compstat reports its all numbers. It has no intelligence for anyone to follow up on. McCarthy single handedly destroyed this police department. He was a Captain with 10 years on the job in New York. He has no significant police experience. Received scholarships his entire career. This man fooled a mayor that was looking at a huge budget deficit. We will be paying the price for his inexperience for years to come.

The whole problem with the Detectives unit is lack of any accountability. At any level. Not getting job done that's OK, not your fault it is the communities fault. Stop accepting excuses and start demanding accountability to keep their positions in unit and area. Not performing officers shipped to unit far from home for a starter. Still not performing no longer hold Dectectives rank. How hard is it. A strong leader and fair leader will gain the respect necessary to motivate the rack and file. All it will take is several examples for the entire group to understand there is a new sherif in town that means business.

Meanwhile, black on black crime rates will continue and those who have enough sense will move to red states/cities where they actually prosecute those who break the law instead of those who protect it.

I think you should push a beat car and see what it is to police in Chicago in 2018. From your little rant, I would guess you haven’t in at least 15 years. What do you consider “not performing”? What QUOTA would you put in place for detectives? Coppers like you are the reason we have in-car cameras and body worn cameras. At any rate, I’d rather have the freedom to work a beat car than work in your dystopian sweat shop detective area any day.

This is true, they are contemplating who the bosses will be. Probably will be a commander from the other areas and lieutenants who have "D" expierence. Looking for a first period start date with the bosses and admin staff there before that. They have recently moved a bunch of Sgts to the "D" some will be moved to the new area. Happening.

The whole problem with the Detectives unit is lack of any accountability...

WTF? Please don't write on this Blog unless you know what you are talking about...

When I worked in A/5 we had Dean Andrews cadre of henchmen. My reports were scrutinized to ad nauseum level. I saw others rejected reports with punctuation and word sentence grammar circles in Red ink.

No multiple were cleared and approved unless they met the smell test for falsified reports. It became difficult to suspend a case unless all reasonable attempts were made to contact the victims. Progress reports, Line up reports, 5-10 page Narratives in Detective Supplementary reports. Updates of running files, and taking phone calls off duty to keep clueless supervisors posted.

Unless there was an Audit. Then anything would pass. Everything needed to be closed. Before I made dick, I wrote reports and never gave them another thought. Now when you are assigned a case there is a running clock on every case. I believe back in the day 15 days was the norm. Give or Take.


Go back to your hole or your favorite hour long lunch spot. Stay down on a transport, or paper job. Who is less accountable?

Any District where the Tact Lt. was at one time a working Det. they have high clearance rates. To many do nothing Tact Sgts who just pretend.
