Pension Issue Again

Was this guy ever sworn? If yes, did he ever work the street? If not, why is he in our pension fund? (click for larger version)


We're just curious.

He was off the street while he was a PPO in 024. ICAM came out, under his direction, while he was a PO. He kept his company car when he was in Sgt school. He was assigned to 011 as a Sgt. Two weeks later he was working at OEMC explaining his projects to Daley (there was a photo in the paper). He was involved in TASER and “street survival” training. He was terrified on the street in 024. To the best of my knowledge he has a degree from SIU in PE.

Please don’t quote me on this because I’m not 100% sure, but I always thought the legend of Lewin was that he was a P.O., and, because of his computer skills, he got an exempt spot and went on to design things that we used as the Dept started using automated arrests, Data Warehouse etc... Like I said, I could be way off. Only saw the guy once or twice at a roll call way back when. He’s gotta have close to 20 yrs on, huh?

J.L. was born and raised in wealthy north shore family with donors to Daley. Loyola Academy raised, and the same old story we've heard over and over with the 'selected few'. He wanted to be a big, big boss in CPD with his boyhood delusional dreams, so they had him hired as a P.O. and worked the street for very, very minimum time until he went up the merit ranks up to D/C or maybe even Chief now, practically inside HQ for 85% of his career, which is his current assignment of some funny baloney computer stuff for last decade or very much more, maybe 15-18 years. He gets promoted so often no one can even keep track of his inside HQ promotions because the political powers in charge gloat over him and his lifestyle. He is also closely connected to the Lube-r-man family and J.L.'s right hand partner in crime B.H. which he personally merit promoted him to sergeant last few months, remember guys, it's all legit. They have never been the police, never will be the police, and can't comprehend pushing a beat car or even be degraded enough to. Being a PPO during FTO cycles on street for a few weeks do not qualify guys, sorry. They look at blue shirts in patrol and in districts, as uneducated grunts at the bottom, when in actuality they are the ones with true ability, strength, and self-respect. These two cape crusaders have been both coddled, literally and figuratively, since CPD's hiring of them. Ironic part is that J.L. pretends and has fooled everyone that he is a computer genius mastermind who has revolutionized the CPD but many experts in the field who are actual tech geeks, have honestly admitted he knows a small fraction of bonafide IT knowledge. Being a trust-fund baby from the north shore suburban community with wealthy parental political donors from day 1 has its privileges. Sounds familiar, look at our great leader R.E. Same story.
Move on, and go back to work boys and girls and respond to those jobs because we need to keep those bosses stats and their work resumes look nice and pretty for their next career outside of CPD! Don't forget T.L. is bean counting your every move until he is forced into retirement years from now.

Jonathan H Lewin earned $183,045 in 2017 as a Chief for City of Chicago Department Of Police. Lewin had worked in this position since June 19, 1991.

That's from the BGA employee database.

Public database has his age as 51.

Now whether he ever worked the street I don't know.

The issue is not with the pension system. It's with the CPD and the bullshit merit promotions. Every time a person is promoted a new pension calculation must be drafted. Same if they were to be suspended for an extended period of time.
Now the kicker with JL is his being promoted to the OEMC under a civilian title code.

The pension staff follows the State Pension Code and the calculations. Whoever posted that the gold braid bill must go is 100% correct. In order to do this though, a tier 3 pension code is the only way, meaning: new language must state that only a civil service rank pension will be deducted. So when you retire, you will only receive a Lt. or Sgt. or a PO pension depending on the rank you were when you became exempt. (the captain rank is not a civil service rank, it's appointed) And yes, there are a few PO's who were made exempt after they completed their probation period.

I worked at the Academy for a time in 1996 and Lewin had an office on the first floor far west end of the building. It was a big computer room later.
Exactly what kind of "Service" credit is he trying to buy at the Pension Board.
I thought in order to buy pension credit it had to be specific to police service or military service.

I saw this stroke at House of Blues last Thursday. He spent the whole time askin for tips so he could buy weed and talking about how bad he needs weed.

He does this while he has a CPD medallion hanging out of his neck chain and gives interviews saying he has a top secret pension from CPD, where he “expedited” people from state to state.

I hope to god he doesn’t get a pension.

I know Luberman was in patrol briefly, I don't know about this guy.

Strange career paths for both of these guys. Where Do I sign up for this? And isn't this why Shields eventually became FOP president, because he had the balls (and balls count) to go in with a camera when Luberman made some such appeal to the pension boards for additional gimmes?

The gold plated public employee pension plans in Illinois sometimes end up with some benefits for people who you might not think should have earned them.

There are people who are getting benefits from three of the city's employee pension plans. There is at least one guy who is getting pension benefits from the city, state, and county.

I worked CTA [weekends] with Jonathan Lewin over 25 years ago, over a 18 month period.
He is no coward.
We stopped by and visited his mother once - she was living in an apartment on the second floor of a building. She did not own a home.
Jonathan knew about personal computers at a time when very few others even knew what they were.
C.A.P.s was just beginning then and he sincerely joined that bandwagon thinking it would work.
My wife and children liked him and I know him as a good man.
I have not spoken with him for about 19 years.

Being a convicted felon, I highly doubt it. But what does he need a pension for? He still has all the buildings he bought and the money he stashed away that the guvment didn’t even bother to look for. He paid a higher price than most would be willing to, but he’s living like a king now.

He made Sergeant off the test in 96 before merit was instituted so less then 5 years including academy time for his first promotion. Like him or not he’s book smart and it is probably better for everyone he sticks to computers and IT. Since I know not much about computers besides how to use them I have no idea how good he really is at all this stuff. I’ve heard conflicting stories.

As a side note 40 years ago all you needed to get on this job was a HS degree and you had to be a city resident to even apply. Since then the job and people hired have changed and you get Lewins and an over representation of young females on the desk. Just a sign of the times. Glad I am retired.

I worked with John in 024 around 1991-92, when he was a PPO. He was hired a class or two after me. John is an extremely intelligent person, who has helped move the Department towards better automation. He was always knowledgeable and skilled in computers, and his contributions to the Department should not be overshadowed by the fact that he has absolutely no real time on the street. At least he contributed to the betterment of the Department, unlike 99% of the clouted who take all they can get and give nothing in return, other than arrogance. John is fairly quiet and does not pretend to be the "police". He knows full-well he has little actual police experience, but he has enough that he can manage projects that improve the Department. Having a good project manager who knows when contractors are failing to provide the proper automation and tools in projects is worth something too. So he hasn't made a lot of arrests, gotten guns off the street, or been to more than a handful of domestics. So what! There are plenty of clouted fools occupying exempt spots, as well as sergeant and lieutenant spots, who do nothing but make your lives miserable. John isn't out to hurt anyone and never was.

Then he should not have been hired as a police officer. He should have been hired as a civilian as should all the other officers (except sick, older) that serve as secretaries or office people their whole careers. Why are they police officers? Why should they get duty availability? They're not police officers if they have been in an office for the majority of their careers.

Thats great. They could have outsourced the job to a civilian at half the salary and no pension hit.

You must not pay much attention to the goings on around you. Do you honestly think when they hire a civilian in these big jobs it is for less money? Wake up will you? And, civilians have a city pension fund, too.

They also voted themselves a vacation on our dime. The Opal Conference? Take a wild guess, it wasn’t in Minnesota in January. I can’t believe the balls. https://opalgroup.net/conference/public-funds-summit-2019/

I worked with John in 024 around 1991-92, when he was a PPO. He was hired a class or two after me. John is an extremely intelligent person, who has helped move the Department towards better automation.


Automation? Listen, this was supposed to be a paperless Dept 10-15 years ago. Bring back the paper reports. Much easier .. e learing is a joke .. aira and isr’s just take cops off the street and into the station down entering info. The only thing that needed to be automated was the inventories .... sucked waiting for one single book. Our Cpd automation blows

Lol!

That ain't like you to paint yourself
into a corner like that, fella!

These things take "delicacy..."

All well and good but what had us laughing
all day was the mental visual of Sir-Ma'am
Prickwrinkle or Lightloafer giggling like
giddy schoolgirls while being tongue punched...

"Titter! Tee-Hee!"

Sorry man... Couldn't resist that...

Two fingers of Bernheim wheat whiskey
raised in your general direction from
"over by there."

Sarcasm & Silliness
at it's best!

Well, this certainly explains why cpd is so horribly behind when it comes to technology. I’d bet my house he had nothing to do with shot spotter...because that actually works.

If he's a police officer he get's a pension. Period. Luberman tried to drag in his CTA time or something like that didn't he?

He told them that he wws underpaid for his skills and that if he was not compensated accordingly, he would go to private industry.
=======
If he feels underpaid he should move on. Public entities tend to overpay at the low end of the skill spectrum and way underpay at the upper end. It is why so may public entities are so badly managed and their technical service type people are mediocre. They just cannot pay enough to get better people because of political reasons.

Shot spotter actually works? I don't know what version of SS technology they have in your district. Not only is it inaccurate and flawed at times, it's completely useless even when accurate.

And, on the rare occasion they hire a private contractor, the connected get the nod for an exaggerated amount.

Even if it works the sound is muted. You want the sounds of gunshots to wake up the crew in there and scare them. People could get hurt falling out of their chairs
