Schedule Change (UPDATES)

The Department has decided morale was too high, so they're throwing a wrench into a lot of lives (click for larger versions):



So much for caring about families with young kids who might need a little more than two weeks to make alternate arrangements to pick up / drop off / trade cars with kids.

That's the thing you can count on with this department - always taking care to make sure families are okay.

UPDATE: FOP has a notice out that they are contesting Fred Waller's claim in the first paragraph that this isn't a Contractual issue subject to mandatory bargaining. Fred claims it's within two hours, so it's legal. We imagine FOP is going to claim it isn't a temporary thing, but rather permanent, and therefore must be negotiated. We'll see shortly.

UPDATE: Delayed for the time being. Seems someone either (A) saw reason or (B) realized it is actually a Contractual issue. We'd like to think it was (A) because Fred isn't nearly smart enough to have read and understood a Contract and neither is 99% of the command staff.

Don’t ever think that this city cares for the police. This is a disgrace, it’s time to get a real union that at least does something. All you losers who say residency is the law, how many times have laws been unconstitutional? How many schedule changes have the firemen been through?

Yet another reason why this department sucks massive dick. If you aren’t vested into the pension find another department or line of work completely. Shit like this just further proves that these “bosses” and “leaders” just don’t give a shit about their officers. Let them work a beat and bring in those numbers.

Let's be honest Officer's with young kids/families are the last good standing bone demographic on this job the other is either young binge drinker's who still live at home or old jaded divorced officer who's kids have long left and have nothing left but the bottle and some other vices. Way to go CPD you knocked over the last stable standing bone and that was the family oriented Officer.

Well I won't be swiping in until start time through 7 minutes past start time. They're going to need 45 minutes for roll call just to allow for officers to dress for their tour, have actual roll call, obtain equipment/vehicle, and sign the log. The days of swiping in prior to tour of duty are over.

Since you can't be trusted to know how to hit the street or checkoff or anything, it's time to slow roll the dept.. Ask the sgt. what to do after roll call, ask the sgt or lt. to help do your vehicle inspection, get your radio, get your taser. If you continue to let the city treat you like children and not law enforcement professionals then you will end up completely vulnerable. Obviously city hall is trying to run the dept. and they hate you. They know nothing! They don't patrol the streets. They have no balls to take control of the streets. Don't allow them to make the 'box' of latitude smaller and smaller into nothingness. You must become maliciously obedient to prove that their way, will not work. To follow all the rules, means you do nothing. Don't make it work. Stand up and push back! Turn your back at roll call. Meticulously do your e-learning. Be very precise and accurate, no matter how long it takes to do that case report at the end of the tour. Document Document Document. Bring it to a standstill.....

First off. This swiping out is not being followed by a LARGE number of people in the department contrary to what your bosses are telling you. Watches, gang, tac, units etc.. many ARE swiping in to get the numbers up but there are still the Lieutenants who want to be captains, captains who want to be commanders and commanders who want to be deputies so bad that they have completely sold their soul incase someone says hey he is a good little boy, let’s promote him. They want everyone swiping out just so they are the ones not getting called out and might be promoted one day. Terrified of Lemmer at compstat. That’s what all of this boils down to and it’s a sad state of affairs. Perhaps we should name some of the older and retired bosses from our past who would have told this whole system and Lemmer to kiss their behind. Now, it’s the numbers yesmen who don’t want to be put on a spotlight by a nitwit at compstat. Prime example is here in my Downtown district. Tac, 2nd watch and midnights have swipe outs in the 55-65 percent range since this started on the 30th but our 3rd watch company man Lt NEEDS those captains bars so bad that third watch stays to swipe out. Rules for some I guess. The Lts are the worst because they will do anything to get that bump. I have three years left till I hit 29 years. I may just hang it up in April and avoid all this.

Wake up people , this is a tactic for contract negotiations. The city (Mayor) makes drastic changes to our work schedule , to our normal routines , start time , swiping ... and more to come . She then begins with a bullshit number for money (raise) and adds more restrictions & discipline , while diminishing or insurance and pension benefits . The city (mayor) will then negotiate the swiping and start time change . Taking that away and holding the line as the city making a concession to the police . Watch , you read it here first . We as police officers up to the rank of LT. must stick together and do nothing , I mean ZERO . After the rank of Lt , your a political hack and at the mercy of the Department , sorry just a fact .

Guys & Gals ... this is where we stand together ... ZERO ... ZERO ....ZERO .....remember , they can’t send everyone to midnights ! Officers , we must think of long term , yeah it might suck for a bit working a different watch , but think long term . Remember , if they don’t have anyone to replace you with, they won’t move anyone !

Here’s a shot in the dark... Hours for third watch: 1500-0001. Reality this is one minute of OT. Compiled this is $$$ for the Department members with these hours. Midnight is 0000 hrs, but for decades the department states this end of tour as 0001. All members need to be compensated in either time of money for this extra minute of work. This could be astronomical considering; weekly, monthly, yearly and so on. The brass wants to play games, LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Coverage provided under this bill would be identical to the coverage provided under the existing Medicare program. Retired first responders would be eligible for tax credits, subsidies and tax-advantaged contributions from their former employer or pension plan.

I predict there will be even less numbers of late/early cars to cover the calls, crime will soar ever higher since Dude Inc will schedule all of their deals and retributions at shift change. Even the idiot voters will start to see how incompetent the city and CPD leadership really is when the bodies start to pile up.

I think it’s about time they went back to the old schedule. The only ones bitching are the 3w people that done get a 3 hr early duck every day anymore. Let’s be honest, the 3 hour overlap was suppose to make sure that there were more cars on the street at the critical times but in reality 3w just got an early duck every day. Hopefully they go back to the 6-2 schedule again. The trifecta would be to go back to rotating watches. Although it took a toll on the body, camaraderie was higher than now. And the watch parties?

The original draft of the general order allowed officers to workout during the first 45 minutes as long as they signed a waiver that if they get hurt it’s not IOD. The order also stated that after roll call/inspection you have about 30 minutes before face to face relief. During this time you are to utilize caboodle to identify crime trends, check and respond to department emails and catch up on streaming videos. That’s probably a good thing instead of constantly holding cars down (especially in undermanned districts) to go in and watch training videos.

I was on the job for 30 years. I'll say it again, I was on the job for 30 years, meaning I didn't do the job for 30 years, at times I did more than others. At times I did less than others. In the end, everything balanced out. Looking back, it was a good job and a noble profession and it still is. With police officers hands cuffed behind their backs, the job is now easier than ever before. Anyone with a few years seniority knows this. Having said this, all the negativity, all the complaining by the P.O.'s is more toxic than anything headquarters and cityhall dishes out. What's worse, whether we admit it or not, we bring it home to our families. I walked in your shoes for a mile or two. This makes me qualified to voice a fact or two. There was a block of time in my years there, when I too became angry and bitter. This can happen easily with everything that's wrong in the department. During one of my bitching session, a young officer said to me, "Wow! I hope I'm not as angry and as bitter as you are when I have your time on the job". The young officer's words were a wake up call for me. We all seen the following comment on this blog: if you don't like it, go do something else". Fact is, as bad as things are, the pay and benefits are still worth staying for. Many have forgotten the pride and honor this profession brings. There's a happy medium in this profession. Find your happy medium, your comfort zone, and stay inside it. Thruths are simple, our thought become our words and our words become our actions, hence our happiness, or our bitterness. Don't change the world, change your world. We're supposed to be Chicago's finest. We can't change the department, we can change our mindset. For anyone thinking this is easy for me to say because I'm now retired, you're correct. It's easy because this is the same advice I give my son, who now wears the CPD uniform. No ones mind needs all the negativity and toxicity. As for the change in starting times, this department will never throw anything at us we can't handle, we're that strong. Stay strong and stay safe.

OT:
A venture capitalist who bankrolled City Hall deals that secretly benefited Patrick Daley while his father Richard M. Daley was mayor has agreed to a court settlement that will see him repay less than 10% of the $290,596 he owes the U.S. Small Business Administration.

After eight years of legal wrangling, the SBA has given up on trying to collect the money from Patrick Daley’s friend Joseph M. McInerney, whose firm Cardinal Growth was seized by the federal agency eight years ago.

Under a settlement approved by a federal judge in Chicago, McInerney agreed to repay $36,000 over the next three years, to cooperate in an ongoing investigation of Cardinal Growth and to give a sworn deposition if asked.

The SBA had accused McInerney of failing to put up all of the money he promised as a condition of Cardinal Growth obtaining more than $51 million in loans from the federal agency.

Cardinal Growth struggled to repay what it borrowed and still owed $21.4 million when it was seized by the SBA eight years ago.

Rumor of the day is you're never to old and feeble to go to jail...

Go to your jobs, take your time. Write thorough reports. Let the city backlog.

Anyone who is proactive is a chump and a sellout. Don’t do a damn thing until end of tour and then start hunting for that late arrest. Please, anyone who can stay late to get OT, please do it.

This is a rehash of the titanic failure that was the squad schedule pilot program that afflicted the 012 district when 012 merged with shithole 013 back in 2013.

It sucked in 2013 and it sucks today. Didn't work, can't work.

How can I prove it didn't work? When Kulbida took over command of 012 from Staples, even HE recognized squad schedule didn't work and shitcanned the pilot program.

But this stupid schedule with all its buzzwords in the Order like "accountability", etc. has returned from the trash because of the all-wise, all-powerful consent decree that has been foisted on us with absolutely no protest or pushback whatsoever.

And the old refrain, "Where's FOP?"

I’m in my 30th yr and can’t leave because I came on too young. I would never have imagined we would be swiping in and out. Sadly we can’t do anything about it since the employer (City) can set this policy up as they see fit. We can however make it work to our advantage as best we can. Fact is the way we had it is gone. It will look different for every officer for that tour/last hour such as working out, coming in with a late TVB, parking somewhere, etc... the point is to concentrate on what we control, what we can change or effect. For example desk personnel, no more working during your lunch, or lockup keepers (sworn). If you want to leave the desk for lunch you have every right to do so. Beat officers, if you don’t get a lunch submit a slip, if someone asks you for any assistance during lunch submit a slip, and notify the zone of course. Make sure the squad is filled up for the next shift (remember ownership of the beat) and do it at the end of the tour, fill out a slip. We can only hit them (City) in the pocketbook. Coppers have always been creative when faced with adversity, so I’m sure this will work itself out for the best for us considering the circumstances. As far as the start times, again the City can do it. I’m sure a lot of coppers will be bidding to different watches coming up. You have to make it work for you as best as you can. Personally 2nd watch looks ver very attractive, while 3rd Watch is OK, but 1st Watch looks awful. I would actually like to see a 12 hour tour. Do not depend on FOP for anything. Since I’ve been on the job FOP has been coming up short every contract, they just sell out eventually. And remember the days of taking time (CU) when your sick, no way, hit the Medical. Remember to fill a grievance when appropriate, down un safe vehicles, take your time inspecting the squads when you start the tour. And always do paper, take your time and check for spelling and accuracy.

Nothing new but plenty to rehash from the days of pre-CAPS.
Is the old stuff new again, and could returning to 6-2 schedules with 28 day rotations thereby Straight Watch on the horizon ?
The last of those who ever rotated watches are just about all gone, so this could be a presented as great new deal.
Package deal with some discipline measures, imbecilic idiot LightLoafer will certainly go along.

Some appointed old school egghead might have proposed it as a way to appease Mare LightLoafer.
It’s a lot of negotiating but floating in a new (pilot) schedule is one way to test the waters of FOP.
Someone’s grand idea (person with an eye on being the Next Right Person for the Right Time™️) isn’t going to be well liked by the District folk.

Rahm or was it Shortshanks that once said “if you don’t like your job, leave”.
LightLoafer is going to make sure fundamental transformation changes will be made and expects her appointed to come up with roadblocks. It’s politics rather than CPD deployment schedules/strategies, an insurance policy of sorts, a preemptive payback in some form or another.

One can only hope our Contract negotiations are as (were as swift as] generous as CPS/CTU.
GrootFoot is very overwhelmed trying to placate the real voting block called CPS/CTU and they will eventually get their way as they always have...for the kids. Her management style and image is very poor right right now.

Please get out there and keep up the numbers activity: In SpecialEd We Trust.


BTW: Are the District Admin Housed Mice subject to any schedule change or time clock swiping?

Agree- a little more notice would have been nice--but am hard pressed to see how not delineating and enforcing the actual full tour of duty for a couple more months makes any sense....and this is just the beginning, the consent decree will impact much more.

Need an outcry at the unions to stand up for our children! Nobody is going to care about your children until you defend them yourself. The city has made it clear, they care more for the political motivation of the teachers who vote Democrat, then they do for the children who can’t vote! They especially don’t care for the officer's children whose lives are in turmoil over this strike. They won’t do any to help the officer's family while we are harmed, and our children are endangered by the residence requirement. Consider what happened to the Vandyke children as the political movements to disclose the officer's personal information into the hands of those who hate us. We already see officers followed, and ambushed after leaving work. MS13 went even further in South America and attacked officer's families. This city’s gangs target and murder rival gang members children. Don’t think for a second they won’t do the same to our children once some SJW vox you. Consider how COPA and our own bosses now tie your hands to protect yourself, and they won’t provide your family any protection at all!!!! These unions need to stop Fng off and demand we either are compensated for the hardship caused by this strike, residency, and the abuse of a no-strike law to mistreat us and our children! Stand together for our children cause no one else will!!!!! The unions sit on their hands and offer nothing to us! If they can't make use of a teacher strike to provide an end to residency or at least at 25% raise, what do we need them for?

“ When other officers or units fight to improve their conditions, so many on the job say fuck them. It's the complete lack of unity on this dept that allows this type of treatment. Unless we unite we will always be treated like this”

Couldn’t have said it better myself. You see it time and again in the comments. If a unit or tact team or whatever tries something “fuck them, fucking cry babies” or if a particular watch in a particular district complains “fuck them, their LT always let them get early ducks while our LT on 2nd watch never did. Fuck them now they have to deal with what we have been. Fucking crybabies” no unity among us. If person (or team or watch, etc) B gets some play that person A doesn’t get, when person B gets fucked by the city, person A will just laugh at them and say fuck them not understanding it’s coming for them next.

Lori talks about wasting money,how about this why is the hook and ladder firetruck from 56th and Narragansett with a crew of 6 firemen with all emergency lights activated driving around as the firefighters are walking and opening every fire hydrant to check them? The water department has 1 and 2 employee vehicles why not let the water "professionals check the hydrants? Is Lori trying to show the need to reduce firefighters by showing not enough to do so having them do this? A contract tactic? just axin!

*******
I’m more concerned with the idiots driving like NASCAR drivers who fail to stop at every stop sign! Doesn’t 008 have any traffic cars up on the west end? As I see it, the firemen are doing something other than baking coffee cakes, sleeping, watching NFL game day, or watching porno on their smartphones.

Along with the record number of new recruits leaving for other departments after Chicago spent a ton of time and money training them. Residency is the main reason they’re leaving but morale is also a factor.

So this from the FOP:

Today, the Lodge, with its labor attorney, met with representatives from the City of Chicago and the Chicago Police Department regarding the proposed change of start times.
This meeting lasted several hours. We were able to voice our members' concerns about the proposed changes. We have been assured all of our concerns will be addressed and discussed at a future meeting.
We will keep you informed.

President Kevin W. Graham


Are you kidding me? That’s it!?! Why am I surprised. Our FOP is fucking useless.

Many voters figured out long ago that the Dems and their lackeys are pure scum, sadly we are surrounded by idiots and those who want the crumbs that politicians give them.... I predict there will be even less numbers of late/early cars to cover the calls, crime will soar ever higher since Dude Inc will schedule all of their deals and retributions at shift change. Even the idiot voters will start to see how incompetent the city and CPD leadership really is when the bodies start to pile up.

Yes Lori, I am speaking about you and your entire team of corrupt political

It is definitely contract time. This is probably a negotiation tactic by the mayor's office. Swiping and now change of start times.

OFF TOPIC. We all know the city does what they want to! The same with the bwc, after 90 days the videos are supposed to be deleted According to state law, unless the video is flagged or has evidentiary value. The city of Chicago, CPD is violating the law, you can go back and watch videos that are past the 90 day mark that are not flagged or etc. Therefore the city does what ever the fuck they want to.

Let's be honest Officer's with young kids/families are the last good standing bone demographic on this job the other is either young binge drinker's who still live at home or old jaded divorced officer who's kids have long left and have nothing left but the bottle and some other vices. Way to go CPD you knocked over the last stable standing bone and that was the family oriented Officer.

As I read all this, I can't help but wonder HOW it is that a woman, an allegedly very educated woman, who grew up in
a family that had a mother and a father, who is now married with a young child, who resides in this city, is so absolutely
filled with disgust and hatred of a police department? Yes, we have had problems, yes, we have had tragedies, but they
have truly been few and far between. But seized on to paint us ALL in a bad light.
Now take on the other side of this equation: is it the departments fault that 2145 people have been shot, with 402 dead so
far this year? Or that it is almost unilaterally persons of the community shooting/killing persons IN the community?
Who are beating, robbing, maiming those who live in their community?
Why on earth would this woman come down so hard and hate-filled on those of us who do what we can in the face of such
extreme violence centered on those who ask for nothing more than to live, work and play in a safe space.
That woman should be ashamed.

Great. So the useless union is going to send another letter. To all the Detectives out there... has anyone ever looked into forming a separate union for the Dicks? They have there own union in Boston and New York. We have duties completely different from patrolman and we could actually use our dues to hire real labor attorny’s instead of buying Kevin Graham lunch everyday just so he can get pushed around by the city.... any thoughts?

10/04/2019 09:52:00 AM

I am completely onboard and in agreement with you. We are doing more jobs than before and our job is night and day compared to the Patrolman's. I feel the current changes put forth by Arnold Jackson Drummond impact us more than the district. We should at least have more representation in OUR union.

Ok, think about this....the city and department has always done what they want and then the FOP has to tell them “no” and fight it or they make the change. There’s no judge on call that tells the city “NO” There’s a procedure in place for this stuff. It sucks but that’s the way it works. This issue isn’t something that an arbitrator would probably rule against. It’s responsible what they did, but it should have waited until January. I can tell you that Kevin Graham is doing the best job than any FOP President I’ve experienced in my 22 years. Be patient with the contract. Things are getting done. Thank God Graham is in and not Dean Angelo.

For what? To make these merit white shirts looks good? Fuck that! The Watch are scratching their heads on why we’re still in the Tact/Gang Team. The city took that last perk when they implemented the Swiping in/out. Give ‘em what they want which is a big round ZERO. No stops, ISR, ANOV, CLC, and ARREST. Time for every Police Officers, for once, UNITE and protest by doing nothing! 15 plus years on this job, I never believe on being FETAL until now.

This fucking with the tours or schedules is not limited
to the police. Sometimes they do a system-wide change
when they only want certain people to leave. You get
big results by just changing things by one hour. After
the "troublemakers" have left, things change back. It's
a win-win: the higher-paid troublemakers are gone and
replaced by low paid greenhorns with no connections.
Just sit tight and don't do any stops. You can't shoot
straight with no sleep. Why endanger yourself and the
public. Unhappiness can destroy your soul. Don't let
them do this to you. Your new favorite word is 'zero'.

Sorry, but it would be a violation of Rule 54 of the CPD rules and regulations which prohibits:

"Joining or retaining membership in, or soliciting other members to join any labor organization whose membership is not exclusively limited to full time law enforcement officers. It is provided that this Rule will not apply to civilian members nor to membership in any labor organization in connection with, and relating solely to, approved secondary employment of sworn members."
