Promotions Solve Shootings?

This is a new one on us - taking cops and detectives off the streets and making them sergeants will suddenly solve crime?
  • Under pressure over the department’s abysmally low rate of solving shootings, Chicago police announced plans Monday to add 50 more sergeants next year to improve its supervision of detectives investigating violent crime.

    The department also said it will bring in experts from the Los Angeles Police Department and the U.S. Department of Justice to recommend how investigators here can solve more homicides and shootings.

    The measures come at a time when the Chicago Tribune has been examining the challenges faced by police in solving violent crime from just one weekend in early August when at least 75 people were shot, 13 of them fatally — the most violent weekend in Chicago in years.
And we have to listen to LAPD "experts" to solve crime because 20 years under federal supervision and countless billions in expenditures has made LA a paradise to live in.

So if Special Ed is going to be promoting 50 sergeants, they're all coming from the D Unit and headed right back there to lean on the detectives to work harder? What happened to spending a year in Patrol? Or are they pulling 50 sergeants out of the Districts to ride hard on the detectives?

How about the bosses and community let the police do their jobs?? Maybe if police in this city were motivated to actually do their jobs without fear of losing everything for doing what they’re supposed to do. Maybe actually punish those dindu nuffins instead of patting their heads and telling them to stop being naughty. Look inwards you fat head

Oh boy. The RBT detectives might not be able to get away with suspending absolutly every single case after “numerous failed attempts to make contact with the victim” and will “mail a victim contact letter with the hopes of future contact by the victim to proceed with this case”. What a joke. I can’t wait for a Sgt to catch onto that pattern and make a call to a victim to follow up. It will be gold and the salty lazy RBT dics will throw a fit about how they are the detectives handling their cases blah blah blah. There are some phenomenal RBT detectives out there then there are others who do zero and still remain salty about it. Please chief staples.. implement something where a second party has to review and attempt to recontact the victim one last time before the suspension is approved. The dogs will have to have a heart attack. Don’t even get me started on their “canvasses” they do for video...

I’ve got a better idea. I watch a little of The First 48 from time to time. I can’t help but notice that a lot of other departments have sergeants in the detective division that are the lead investigators. They handle just about every aspect of the investigation. Let’s conduct an experiment and send out teams of sergeants to handle a few homicides and see how they do. I’ll forecast not well as most can’t find their own ass with both hands.

OT - CCSAO JUSTICE STRIKES AGAIN!!

December 3rd, 2018 in room 207 at the criminal courts building case # 17CR11014 was being adjudicated and heard. A 007th district Sergeant was working in an undercover capacity when the defendant pulled up next to the UCV and brandished a handgun. Furthermore, this defendant, a 58 year old radiology tech from a Chicago hospital, and FOID/CCL holder, while driving under the influence menaced the UCO by feigning to rack the gun and then tap on his (defendant's) driver window to menace and intimidate the UCO. Defendant was charged in 2017 with Aggravated UUW and DUI for the incident. The defendant gave several admissions including, "I was busy listening to rap music and out of impulse pulled the gun out and I brandished it, I flashed it like a new pair of shoes." However, the court would never hear this evidence because despite a jury trial set to begin on this day, Cook County ASAs assigned to room 207 deliberately went against the victim's wishes. The sergeant would not agree to have this defendant's case plead down to a misdemeanor. Unconcerned with the wishes of the victim sergeant, the state did just that. The defendant was plead down to two class A misdemeanors. When the sergeant requested to speak on record to oppose the agreement, he was denied and silenced. With the victim sergeant in the court room, the defendant apologized to the court but not the sergeant. Judge Byrne appearing shocked at the agreement after the ASA read into record the facts of the case, and still throughout it all, no acknowledgment was made to the victim sergeant and was clearly wished away by all court personnel, including the Cook County Sheriff who rudely and with disdain cut the sergeant off before he could finish asking his question in regards to speaking to the judge about this miscarriage of justice and having his voice heard. The victim sergeant, a 23 year veteran, was treated with disrespect and scorn. The ASAs in providing an explanation for the decision, clearly held the victim sergeant in contempt for his sincere frustration and then exasperated it when they attempted to validate their position with arguments more commonly used by the Public defender’s office. And in the end even the defendant's private counsel knew something was afoul as they could hardly mask their disbelief and yes, shame as they walked past the decorated victim sergeant, knowing that they pulled one off and got their client an early Christmas gift.

The only reason the murders get worked is because the victim is dead if he survives, he lies about everything from his name to where the crime scene is.

How about providing vehicles so that detectives can go out and conduct investigations
How about providing detectives direct access to investigative data bases
How about making detectives partners do they don’t have to conduct follow ups 99 in dangerous neighborhoods

SO, maybe the LAPD has some super tactic they utilize to get a witness to come forward and give a statement under ERI. Do they have the same liberal bunch of A$$&oles who dictate policy to them as we do her in CHIRAQ? Or quite possibly the Executive Research Forum can retrain all us detectives to solve every shooting and homicide in 60 minutes like they do on TV?

Bringing in L.A. Detectives to show Chicago Detectives how to solve crimes is a GREAT IDEA! So, does that mean, CPD will learn how to solve crimes, within an hour, not counting commercial breaks for a word from their sponsors? Will L.A. Detectives show CPD how to properly care for hair gel, grooming and dress, so that CPD looks as Cool as L.A.Television cops? Way too many CPD Detectives still dress like they are in parochial high school, mixing striped ties with plaid shirts! I was hoping they would send in the NCIS crew, or Criminal Minds show people; they always catch the offender, and he is usually a White Guy, who confesses without an attorney from Loevy and Loevy! Oh, and L.A. can show Chicago how to pay at least $26,000,0000 for their Consent Decree following their Ramparts Scandal and of Course their Rodney King Riot which cost $700 Million in 1990's dollars. If I am not mistaken there are still at least 24 unsolved homicides related to that one incident, to this day. And most of all, inform the L.A. Detectives how to dress for winter, because "Shitcaga" is a lot colder than L.A., in more than just the weather.Stay Safe. Baby "G"

How about putting 50 detectives in the detective division first? What the hell are the sergeants going to do, look at a report and say, yea no cooperation from vicitms and witnesses so suspended it? Pretty soon thee will be more sergeants than detectives, unless these sergeants are now going to get handouts themselves? Another bright idea from the brain trust at 35th.

I know how to solve more crime and close more cases-- start locking up the victims and witnesses that lie. Lying to the Feds is a year in jail minimum, and denying knowledge when your known or found to have knowledge should be a punishable offense at the State level. They start doing that and we'll start moving more x's.

Sorry SCC you should be willing to listen to someone because the last 4 years of less then 20% clearance rates have proved that the CPD Homicide Dicks have not got a clue of how to do their jobs. Accountability begins at the top of any organization, who has been held accountable for the bad results? Still the same merit hacks in charge, and you expect different results, classic example of Stupidity. Change the leadership and hold all levels accountable for job performance. Finally STOP ANY AND ALL MERIT PROMOTIONS TO DECTECTIVE. Merit hacks are just that hacks without a clue of what it takes to get job done. Years of Promoting people for who they know rather then what they know has put the CPD in the position it is in today.

I never understood why Detectives that were promoted to Sgt. have to work patrol after having years of experience in the Detective Division. They also would place newer Sgt’s in the Detective Division that were never Detectives. They should have two separate tests and promote from within each Division Detective/Patrol maybe even OCD. To take someone who has been a Detective for years and put them in patrol is helping anyone.

Here’s another good idea maybe admit closing Areas 4/5 was a bad idea and reopen them already. At least Area 4.

Several issues here. Primarily, we have a unique community that totally lacks cooperation in investigations. Then we must consider the difficulty in charging cases with our Felony Review Unit. Then if you get a case charged, the offender gets and I-Bond or a low bond.And they go back into the community and repeat the offenses.

Additionally, in Area South, they let it run so low on detectives that now with a splurge of new dicks, we have no detectives left to train them. So you have dicks with 1-2 years, who still don't know the job, training new dicks. Plus, we lost about 15 of our senior dicks to the Police related shooting team. That blame for this falls on our Sup and our chief of dicks.

Another issue, can a sergeant that has never been a detective be a good and successful sergeant in the D Unit. Sure. But not many. We need sergeants that know how to conduct investigations, know how to audit cases, and know how to mentor. Instead, we often get the clouted sergeants that don't belong here.

Due to the "challenges faced by police" when it comes to solving murders........
When a "community" is full of drug-dealing criminals, who stop at nothing to eliminate the competition, who are released time and time again
by a politico-legal system who has decreed that the color of your skin means you can not and SHOULD NOT be held responsible for any crimes that might be committed, when a rapist of a mentally challenged person is released on less money than a pair of shoes, or a drug dealer caught with thousands and thousands of dollars worth of drugs is released on a few hundred bucks, or a thief with 27 arrests goes out on a signature bond, what did you expect?
Those committing those 2500+ shootings and 500+ murders are the sons, brothers, uncles, fathers of the "community"....and all of their families are being enriched by the drug-dealing activities. LAPD can come here til the cows come home, it isn't going to change the mindset of the "community"......and unless and until the "community" decides that enough IS enough, things will continue as they are.
We are a drug-cartel owned city now.....which is operating with tacit approval of every politician in this city......Rahm, Foxx, Dart, Prickwinkle, and every other social justice warrior Democrat which the "community" elected.

This is all smoke and mirrors. This is just the prelude to announcing that Area 4 will reopen. For Area 4 to reopen they need more Sgts, Lts, Cmdr, etc. They’ll cover it by saying that the recommendations of the experts is to spread out the workload and reopen the another area due to overcrowding and not enough resources. Easy way to justify sending 50 Sgts to the D-unit and not having to directly admit that closing the areas was a huge mistake. They’ll also probably say the experts said to get rid of 10 hr days at A/S. This has nothing to do with solving crimes.

Retired guy here. I left from detective division, property crimes, okay a little bit different than violent, but here is a summary of a day in the life. 7-8 jobs a day, mostly burglaries. Narrative, at an unknown time, unknown persons entered in an unknown way removing an unknown amount of propert and left in an unknown direction. Prints? Ha! A year later you get the notification, no identifiable impressions were recovered. Call victim, knows nothing, if you can contact them. Canvas? Yes did that. Nobody saw anything, ever. If, if an arrest was made Asa at felony review was usually very difficult to deal with. Felony approval usually about 20% or less. Victim would maybe show up and most times did'nt or got fed up after the umpteenth continuance. Suspended cases 9 out of 10. Best idea is to run victim for warrants and improve your arrest numbers. Todays victim, tomorrows offender. Todays victim, todays arrest.

There are some great detectives, but there is also far too many dogs, primma donnas and do nothings in the detective division. But then again it has always been that way. I would be interested to see who the 50 new sergeants are. A sergeant in the odetective division is a good job. Will they be good, smart, former detectives, who are motivators and leaders, or will the be the politically connected, or females who “earned” their stripes by having affairs with big bosses. I suspect the latter. Los Angeles is probably the most over rated big city police department in the country. Guess Eddie buys into all the Hollywood hype.

There are many great brothers and sisters in the LAPD of all ranks as well as throughout the nation in law enforcement.
The nations 'individual members' in law enforcement are all part of our Thin Blue Line.
We all bleed the same when we lose a member in the line of duty.
The fact that the 'powers to be' in the CPD and DOJ came up with this proposal should be a reflection on them, the source, and not the individual brothers and sisters likewise in law enforcement.
It's unfair to include the law enforcement 'members' in particular (i.e. baby out with the bath water )
It makes more sense to place the blame at its source and hold them accountable (i.e. drain the swamp )

What we need is:

2. Get to work immediately - not after their 3rd cup of coffee and donut.
3. Start working out on their own time - not on the clock.
4. Stop working at snails pace, etc.
5. Regardless of the outcome of court - start locking people up when appropriate
6. Stop sitting around the office - and actually get to work.

Now that being said you can’t promote the “Suspending Dicks” or go get a “Summons Dicks” you have to be the working Detective.

There are no more ET processing of residential or garage burglaries. So no fingerprints or photos. Nothing to go. Just a constant stream of cases every day.

You would think in time dumb ass Ed would catch on to just one thing. Wrong. He bragged about hiring an additional therapist after one of our many Officer suicides ignoring the fact that the DOJ said we were extremely understaffed in that area. So we are still way understaffed in the Officer well being area. Good job Ed.
Now Sgt’s will solve all the Det division problems and lack of clearance. Wow. I really don’t know how much more fucked up this department can get.

Manpower Again

So the sheets we posted from 017, Second Watch provoked a lot of discussion. Nine officers covering about 10 square miles, no wagon (unless 1724 is pulling double duty) and 1712 is a down car.

Armed carjacking in front of a church in 17 as the mother waits for her son to finish boy scouts. This will continue to happen unless the city gets their heads out of their ass. The criminal dirt bags are making their way into usually safe and sound neighborhoods. Why? The lack of manpower to these areas. That is the only reason. One of largesst areas in the city and 9 officers covering the area. Dam pathetic.

Oh boy.

What a joke. I can’t wait for a Sgt to catch onto that pattern and make a call to a victim to follow up. It will be gold and the salty lazy RBT dics will throw a fit about how they are the detectives handling their cases blah blah blah. There are some phenomenal RBT detectives out there then there are others who do zero and still remain salty about it.

To the anonymous dumbass at 1213am with the RBT Detective hate....

First off, each case IS already reviewed by a Sgt. Secondly, if you have no evidence, no witnesses, the incident is not caught on video and there are no miraculous "tip phone calls" like there are on every TV case, then suspend it has to be. Your message was not only full of hate, but also full of ignorance. If you really knew what you were talking about, you would realize we can't waste time on a case if there is nothing to follow-up on because the case load will get out of control. The ONLY way is to weed out the cases with no meat on the bones and work on the ones that do. I (and most of my co-workers) take pride in our investigations. I give every case the attention it deserves based on the evidence and information available. In fact, I do more than is necessary. At the end of the day there are not enough detectives to work on cases the way you think it can be done in your Shangri-La world. Stop the hate and go work in Walmart, but then you would complain about the greeters.

How about providing vehicles so that detectives can go out and conduct investigations
How about providing detectives direct access to investigative data bases
How about making detectives partners do they don’t have to conduct follow ups 99 in dangerous neighborhoods

The detective division has turned into shit soup of mediocrity!

Just FYI - Detectives will no longer be the lead investigator on all homicides The sergeants will be the lead Investigators and will be assisted by detectives. If they don't clear the case they will go back to patrol. Be prepared for more clearances that will not be legit. More trouble to follow. If you are a sergeant - stay clear of the D-Unit.

Not every Det to make Sgt gets to go back, just the special ones and The Merry Merit Fairy Special Ed has his specials list.
There’s no application process and even if there were it would be subject to 21st Century personality trait and not past performance.

The entire Division evolved drastically and we are operating under a new world order. One that defies logic and principle.
What the Egghead Merit Command Staff could do and probably will is create a new classification “ Closed-Clear Deferred by States Atty.
Gives us the numbers and keeps States Activism Office in-line with their agenda.
Doesn’t make sense but it keeps more black and brown folks out of jail and back on the streets...to vote.

Can’t hold witnesses.
Can’t hold arrestees.
No video, no felony.
Release, release, release based on identity politics, which leads to suspension.
Why?
Why bother with the felony arrest in the first place, 1,000 misdemeanors doesn’t mean anything either.
There will never be sufficient evidence to declare a cleareance unless Cook County is reformed back to a prosecutorial rather than a political community activism organgrinding outfit it’s grown into.

This overrated clearence bullshit is being used just to smear the Police, just in time for the campaign rush.
No cooperation with the States Atty means no Clearences.
No Political leaders will ever have to claim responsibility for the out of control crime and criminal recidivism.
All of a sudden it’s a low level police problem and nothing to do with Jugghaid Special Ed’s 3 year murder fog.

For one the LAPD has a much higher rate of solving crimes and making arrests for violent crimes. For two, they do not have the violent crime rate that Chicago has. For three, they will be impressed with the political control that the snares the CPD. How many of the sergeants currently assigned to the detective division actually worked as detectives before being promoted? Clout controls things in this town. In LA, many of the detectives are sergeants, a very different system. Do not put down this idea so fast. The LA people might be a good thing for this town. But, I think many of these new sergeants will be political and will not have detective experience.

So, the LAPD is coming and going to inject their West Coast Liberal Police Culture into Chicago. The problem as I see it, some nut from the CPD thinks this is a good idea.

Why would any detective put himself out when 1-Communerty won't talk to the police they won't snitch . They are told to hate the police. Also you have a ASA and Kimisssha would burn the police sooner if they made the slightest mistake. So they are happy collecting welfare and driving around in there Buirck.

Has anyone watched the trial?

The ASA is setting up ground work that beside the three officers that are on trial the alleged cover up went way up in the Department.
They have already connected one Sgt. And one Lt. Also how did the Federal legal defense organization get a copy of the video.
Prior to the release by city......

The defense is still asking where is the evidence that the three conspired to cover up this matter? And that the three officers have had no control in the cover up or release of the evidence. This happened at higher ranks.

But during presentation the ASA showed how all the goofy bosses talked about this shooting through emails. Even personal emails.

This proves that your Garrity rights are now useless. There is no way you have any rights as a police officer. Either on or off duty.
It further proves your cell phone and emails are useable against you.

If you all think that Chicago isn't as far left as LA you have been sleeping the last few years. Chicago Criminal justice system is hell bent on keeping criminals out of jail. You have elected Democratic politicians that told you they were going to raise taxes and reform the justice system. The city is the butt of murder capital of the US. Yet you persist in thinking that the Chicago Way is the best possible solution to city crime problems. Wake up and take a good honest look at what the city and your job has become, then tell me things are working well and you do not need any outside help. If you seriously believe that then I suggest you take your head out of your ass.

12/04/2018 01:10:00 PM

I suggest your head is in your ass. If the experts cannot change the Chicago Lefty Way, the Chicago Criminal Justice System, our democRAT politicians and the uncooperative victims and witnesses, exactly what are they to teach and we are to learn? Basic investigative techniques? Now that would be an incredible waste of money.

And, it would be a falsehood if you were told "things are working well", but outside help is not the answer. Unless the experts can burn everything to the ground and start over by exiling the likes of the democratic cabal especially Pritzker, Kwame/Madigantress, Mandoza, Bullwinkle, Crimesha and "Let Em All To I-Bond" Evans, we will still be whistling in the wind.

*some murders are not included but the ones that the family/friends has information that identifies the offender but chooses to “handle it themselves” you treat them the same as above.

For one the LAPD has a much higher rate of solving crimes and making arrests for violent crimes. For two, they do not have the violent crime rate that Chicago has. For three, they will be impressed with the political control that the snares the CPD. How many of the sergeants currently assigned to the detective division actually worked as detectives before being promoted? Clout controls things in this town. In LA, many of the detectives are sergeants, a very different system. Do not put down this idea so fast. The LA people might be a good thing for this town. But, I think many of these new sergeants will be political and will not have detective experience.

12/04/2018 03:33:00
You are absolutely right. A sergeant should have worked as a detective first before becoming a supervisor in the D-Unit. Not many D-Unit supervisors can lead an investigation or give sound advice.

From a Police Officer III classification, one can also choose to promote to a Detective I position after successfully completing a competitive Detective's examination and interview. A Detective I is often assigned to a specialized division and is responsible for responding to the scenes of crimes, conducting preliminary and follow-up investigations, preparing the required investigative reports, preparing a biopsy of the report, apprehending the suspect, preparing the case for successful prosecution, and testifying in court. Detectives may supervise and/or coordinate the activities of a detail or unit engaged in investigating various crimes or activities. Examples of the assignments in this class are undercover narcotics investigators, internal affairs investigators, and traffic accident follow-up investigators. On occasion, a Detective travels to other parts of the country or overseas to extradite suspects wanted in connection with crimes committed in the City of Los Angeles. In this capacity, a Detective maintains liaison with international law enforcement agencies.

Examples of different working titles:

Court Liaison
Follow-up Crime Investigator
Narcotics Officer

DETECTIVE II

A Detective II is the next promotional step in the Detective series. It is a supervisory position and is responsible for training and overseeing the activities of Detectives I and Police Officers. Some of the specialized duties performed by a Detective II include: conduct narcotics investigations, perform surveillance, and establish and maintain contacts with informants; investigate gang related crimes; respond to and investigate scenes of crimes such as homicide, theft, robbery, auto theft, illegal sex related activities; and, crimes committed by juveniles. In addition, a Detective II may perform court liaison functions; act as a Watch Commander; provide electronic equipment expertise to conduct surveillance and polygraph examinations; investigate applicants and businesses who have applied for Police Commission permits to conduct business; investigate child abuse cases; provide expert testimony in court; and, conduct investigations of crimes committed by gangs of foreign origin.

Back in the day old Sgt J Andrews came to Area 4 and attempted to reinvent the whole investigative process as he believed it should be in his fantasy world. Needless to say Sgt J.A and his ways were launched after a few periods back to patrol in 011, where he screwed things up even worse.

Yeah, bring over some more inexperienced Sgts and see if the clearance rate changes any.

December 3rd, 2018 in room 207 at the criminal courts building case # 17CR11014 was being adjudicated and heard. A 007th district Sergeant was working in an undercover capacity when the defendant pulled up next to the UCV and brandished a handgun. Furthermore, this defendant, a 58 year old radiology tech from a Chicago hospital, and FOID/CCL holder, while driving under the influence menaced the UCO by feigning to rack the gun and then tap on his (defendant's) driver window to menace and intimidate the UCO. Defendant was charged in 2017 with Aggravated UUW and DUI for the incident. The defendant gave several admissions including, "I was busy listening to rap music and out of impulse pulled the gun out and I brandished it, I flashed it like a new pair of shoes." However, the court would never hear this evidence because despite a jury trial set to begin on this day, Cook County ASAs assigned to room 207 deliberately went against the victim's wishes. The sergeant would not agree to have this defendant's case plead down to a misdemeanor. Unconcerned with the wishes of the victim sergeant, the state did just that. The defendant was plead down to two class A misdemeanors. When the sergeant requested to speak on record to oppose the agreement, he was denied and silenced. With the victim sergeant in the court room, the defendant apologized to the court but not the sergeant. Judge Byrne appearing shocked at the agreement after the ASA read into record the facts of the case, and still throughout it all, no acknowledgment was made to the victim sergeant and was clearly wished away by all court personnel, including the Cook County Sheriff who rudely and with disdain cut the sergeant off before he could finish asking his question in regards to speaking to the judge about this miscarriage of justice and having his voice heard. The victim sergeant, a 23 year veteran, was treated with disrespect and scorn. The ASAs in providing an explanation for the decision, clearly held the victim sergeant in contempt for his sincere frustration and then exasperated it when they attempted to validate their position with arguments more commonly used by the Public defender’s office. And in the end even the defendant's private counsel knew something was afoul as they could hardly mask their disbelief and yes, shame as they walked past the decorated victim sergeant, knowing that they pulled one off and got their client an early Christmas gift

honestly... who cares??? Its work. Once you leave work, you go home to your family end of story. Work ends when you leave the building. Court ends when you finish your testimony. All of the other stuff is out of your control... rightfully so. What ive noticed during my career is that cops try to do everyone elses job. We enforce laws, that's it. We don't interpret them and we don't make them. We don't try them in court or rule on them in court. Make the arrest and testify when you are told. That is our job. I know nobody likes that but who really cares. We are not lawyers. We are not politicians or community activists. Make your arrest and go home. seven days later go to court for your felony. 3 months later come back for a motion and answer your questions. several months after that answer questions again and your job is done with. guilty or not guilty is not up to you or part of your job.

RBT. Make them swipe in AND out. Start the day, open the in box, suspend a couple without doing ANY investigation because they don't seem clearable on their face or seem like it might be a "cluster" then move on to coffee. Then grab a car to "hit the streets" aka hiding from the sgt. So you go out and run your errands, eat lunch, stop home, work out then back to the district to look at your inbox one last time and then get on the road home before rush hour a couple hours early. Its not once in a while its every day. The detectives better believe that the caps officers who most share offices with see it everyday. Its so out in the open and bragged about infront of other officers. It would be a shame if some of those caps officers haven't been documenting in and out times.. especially for the past couple months. its funny is all. Just imagine if someone did that.. It could be bad for the RBT detectives.

Manpower Again

So the sheets we posted from 017, Second Watch provoked a lot of discussion. Nine officers covering about 10 square miles, no wagon (unless 1724 is pulling double duty) and 1712 is a down car.

Armed carjacking in front of a church in 17 as the mother waits for her son to finish boy scouts. This will continue to happen unless the city gets their heads out of their ass. The criminal dirt bags are making their way into usually safe and sound neighborhoods. Why? The lack of manpower to these areas. That is the only reason. One of largesst areas in the city and 9 officers covering the area. Dam pathetic.

Let’s see why is the clearance rate so low:

Our Crime Lab/ET’s are a joke. Not necessarily the personnel but their methods and equipment. Evidence and science are going to solve cases these days. It would be nice to actually collect and process evidence correctly and efficiently.

VIDEO! It’s everywhere. I don’t know how many times I as a Detective was standing in a back room of a gas station ghetto store etc attempting to download video onto a flash drive. How about we come up with a A/V Unit with PO’s or Detectives that actually know what they are doing and have the proper equipment to retrieve video copy it and inventory it. They should be dispatched to every murder
and police shooting at the very least.

Files. Let’s keep some real files. We need storage and a dedicated team of Detectives to create, store and retrieve on-going files in a timely manner. Our system has been and continues to be a joke.

Time to acutally investigate. You get a murder one day with no apparent witnesses and try to do a canvass talk to people with little or no results as everyone is on the street watching your every move. We need time to go back and talk to people the next day or two. But we can’t because we get a fresh murder within a day or two and the last one goes on ice.

Witnesses. Can’t hold them I get that. With body cameras these days we need preliminary investigators to attempt to get identifiers and what they saw on tape before allowing them to leave. Some VC Detectives come a long way to scenes these days and the witnesses are gone upon their arrival. We need identifiers to track them down at a later time to re-interview.

Community Trust!!! Ah yeah never going to happen in most neighborhoods. We’re the bad guys. We take their baby’s daddy to jail. Or haul off their kids to jail all for no reason and they blame the police for everything that’s wrong in their lives. No accountability. I’ve treated people 99% of the time with respect I a surley don’t get respect back. It’s a one way street.

We do not need more detectives.
What we need is:
1. Detectives to start showing up to work on time.
2. Get to work immediately - not after their 3rd cup of coffee and donut.
3. Start working out on their own time - not on the clock.
4. Stop working at snails pace, etc.
5. Regardless of the outcome of court - start locking people up when appropriate
6. Stop sitting around the office - and actually get to work.

Stop with your crazy talk. You must be either a po who can’t pass the test or doesn’t have any juice for a merit promotion or a merit Sgt in the DD that can’t motivate his/her Detectives.

All I read into this is...50 more clouted/connected Sgt's are being assigned to the "D" units. Since No Sgt. has ever "bid" into a "D" unit, I see 50 more favors being doled out. Since there is no "bid" process to get to a "D" unit, the process has always been through phone calls and "hand picked" selections.

I grant you that I have the privilege of working for some great supervisors who made it through this process somehow. But in this rash of promotions, I only predict higher scrutiny of suspended cases, that should be suspended. the truth is, that only some cases should be investigated since detectives don't have the time to "look" into every case. Some are unsolvable and should be suspended immediately. Many are not prosecutable. Many are cases where the victim cant be reached. Many more hinge on an unlikely confession from an offender. 50 more detective supervisors will only increase the scrutiny level to an unreasonable degree, and to justify their existence in a "D" unit, they will focus in on suspended cases.

Retired guy here. I left from detective division, property crimes, okay a little bit different than violent, but here is a summary of a day in the life. 7-8 jobs a day, mostly burglaries. Narrative, at an unknown time, unknown persons entered in an unknown way removing an unknown amount of propert and left in an unknown direction. Prints? Ha! A year later you get the notification, no identifiable impressions were recovered. Call victim, knows nothing, if you can contact them. Canvas? Yes did that. Nobody saw anything, ever. If, if an arrest was made Asa at felony review was usually very difficult to deal with. Felony approval usually about 20% or less. Victim would maybe show up and most times did'nt or got fed up after the umpteenth continuance. Suspended cases 9 out of 10. Best idea is to run victim for warrants and improve your arrest numbers.

Damn, you Sir, are the first retired detective from property crimes I've ever met, all hundreds of other retired detectives I've talked to or met on vacation worked in homicide/vc, and all worked in Englewood. You must have been pretty busy working alone, I salute you!!

Hey Detectives, quit taking my special employment overtime. Make your own overtime. You're detectives, after all...

12/04/2018 08:29:00 PM

Hey PPO, it is not your special employment overtime. It is assigned by Seniority, and has been so for many years prior to you getting hired. Are you going to whine next that I am taking " your movie detail" from you? You can make overtime if you lock up a juvenile for the mighty crime of "Reckless Conduct" for running away from you. Or, lockup a kid for Possession of Cannabis with intent to deliver, and he only has 1 bag on him.

Go back in your parents basement and play with your XBOX.

A lot of these sergeants don't supervise in the districts. What makes anybody think they'll supervise in the areas?

I know this is a complex problem, bringing in LAPD is fucked up from the get go and putting 50 more Sgt's in the D may help in the short term, if they were Detectives.

The Detective Division was destroyed in the 90's by that goof Ivan Jackoff when he became Chief of Detectives. He came in, dumped a bunch of seasoned supervisors and replaced them with Patrol Supervisors and other personnel. The new people caused the D to change its culture, which made it unbearable for the experienced Detectives and cause early retirements. This was especially noted in the Homicide Areas, where that experience was not past to the new Detective coming to Homicide units.
That my friends is where it began, and the D has never recovered, but only got worse. Just a note to the one's that thought he walk on water, look presently at the D, it all traces back to the I-Jack.

That's right, it was the beginning of the end of the Detective Division period.

Let’s say we work up to have a 95% clearance rate. Now what. What do you do with more offenders/arrests? Take them home with you. And what if the higher clearance rates start showing more people of color being arrested. Now what? Are we being racist AGAIN. What’s the expression “carefull what you wish for” because it might bite you in the butt.

Paul Vallas Responds to Chicago Police Department's Plan to Improve Homicide Clearance Rates on his website and fb page. He's right, but he fails to speak about Foxx failing to charge offenders. Perhaps he is afraid to speak out about her making her own rules and not following the law.

12/05/2018 05:21:00 AM

He could talk about it, but bottom line he can’t do anything, even if he’s elected mayor. It’s a county office , she has been elected and Preckwinkle is her boss

Memo to all bashing Fuhrman -

This case alone set police investigations back hundreds of years. Besides the TV shown grandstanding of all involved, it became a trial
of race-baiting. It was no longer about the double homicide OJ committed, it became a trial of saying a BAD word.....

Fuhrman used too many "bad words" when speaking to that writer woman (probably trying to impress her to get her in the sack).....
The investigation of OJ was nearly flawless.....and those 4 detectives did a damn good job trying to bring him to justice......
And unfortunately, that's where we are today......stone-walled by a community that hates the police, who believe that the police are racist, misogynistic pigs, because the DEMS and the MSM have made us so.
It has never been that the police need "reforming"......it is the community that needs to.

honestly... who cares??? Its work. Once you leave work, you go home to your family end of story. Work ends when you leave the building. Court ends when you finish your testimony. All of the other stuff is out of your control... rightfully so. What ive noticed during my career is that cops try to do everyone elses job. We enforce laws, that's it. We don't interpret them and we don't make them. We don't try them in court or rule on them in court. Make the arrest and testify when you are told. That is our job. I know nobody likes that but who really cares. We are not lawyers. We are not politicians or community activists. Make your arrest and go home. seven days later go to court for your felony. 3 months later come back for a motion and answer your questions. several months after that answer questions again and your job is done with. guilty or not guilty is not up to you or part of your job.

RBT. Make them swipe in AND out. Start the day, open the in box, suspend a couple without doing ANY investigation because they don't seem clearable on their face or seem like it might be a "cluster" then move on to coffee. Then grab a car to "hit the streets" aka hiding from the sgt. So you go out and run your errands, eat lunch, stop home, work out then back to the district to look at your inbox one last time and then get on the road home before rush hour a couple hours early. Its not once in a while its every day. The detectives better believe that the caps officers who most share offices with see it everyday. Its so out in the open and bragged about infront of other officers. It would be a shame if some of those caps officers haven't been documenting in and out times.. especially for the past couple months. its funny is all. Just imagine if someone did that.. It could be bad for the RBT detectives.

Yet another example of a LOWERED STANDARD HIRE....CAPS office? what a waste of manpower...you are lucky to even be in CAPS....friends with someone in the commanders office or something else? Yeah you went to CAPS because you have an expertise? Give me a break.....someone can tell you they are going to the moon, how do you know where that person went? How about Mind your damn business, or pass a damn test...bunch of winers on this job now...

We don't need any more Sgts in the D unit. We need detectives promoted OFF THE LIST! We need people who actually studied and know how to properly conduct an investigation. People that know the law, orders and know how to write paper. We do not need anymore merit dog asses especially in Area South. More Sgts just means more ducks for them.....

12/04/2018 07:08:00 AM

Studying the GO don’t help u clear cases. It’s hard work and knowing how to talk to people which gets cases closed. Give me a good copper over a good test taker any day and I don’t care if they are merit or off the fake list

Elizabeth Smart was not murdered. She was kidnapped in the Federal Heights neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah and held captive for 9 months. And, Federal Heights, Salt Lake City, Utah is not a neighborhood in Los Angeles, at least, not yet.

Regarding the Simpson case:

Fuhrman: forgot that most times a defense attorney asks a question, he already knows the answer.

Van Atter(sp): brings evidence (I believe it was blood from the scene) home with him to inventory another time. Not too bright.


Judge Ito: a complete incompetent who let the defense rule his courtroom. Allows a defense witness to testify during the prosecution's case, etc.

Exactly. It is a never-ending, lefty-liberal cycle engineered to fit their agenda via the continued manipulation of the masses. Bullwinkle is a prime example. She wants no arrests of black offenders and no enforcement of law in the black community. Bullwinkle said their is a special place in hell for Ronald Reagan because of his war on drugs. No, Toni. The special place in hell is for you. And, saying such a thing shows that you are a racist. Do not vote for Toni. Vote for anybody, but Toni.

Leo was already here and did nothing to straighten out the department. He left. Your great white hope is gone and isn't coming back. If it's offered to him, and he somehow makes the horrible decision to come back, he won't fix a thing. The department is doomed and no one can save it. Putting a white male in charge, even if he's the former hero of shithole Englewood, won't sit well with the "community."

OJ killed Nicole and Ron. There's nothing to solve there. Anyone who is waiting for someone to find "the real killer" is a complete moron. The LAPD, the prosecution, and the judge fucked up that case, but the murderer was caught and charged. Tupac and biggie died because they couldn't leave the ghetto mentality behind after becoming millionaires. Just like every gang on gang murder, who really gives a shit if it's solved?
