Masks Issued, But...

So the Department is finally issuing uniform masks. You have to sign for them and you have to wear them. You don't get a fancy one like Groot has. Here's a picture of the plain masks:


What a lovely....wait a second....what's that small label in the corner?


"No guarantee of protection from infection. Use at your own risk"

Really? The City and Department issue a piece of equipment, require you wear it, then tell you it doesn't protect you and use at your own risk? That would seem contradictory at best, especially in light of Inspector Harris writing up ten and twenty face mask violations every single day on officers working alone in their cars.

Only one, so....wash it every day? We don't see and "Cleaning and Care" instructions near that label. And where's the "Made in the USA" label anyway? Or is this some cheap Chinese knockoff that Putzger imported in the dead of night again like those KN-95 masks?

Masks offer absolutely no protection from contracting Corona, but it can make you sick and nauseous from breathing in your own breath (carbon dioxide). I haven't worn a mask at any store I've been to and it's funny to watch people point fingers and stare. I also haven't been asked by store personnel to wear one, but if they did I would politely refuse and if they insisted then I would leave the merchandise I was buying right in the cart and leave.

Isn't it interesting that what we really have going on here is a form of Sharia Law. The only thing we're all missing is the hijab!

Hey Pres Cantazzara or Gorman or Mette or Jackstavich Flores...... last time I checked there is a uniform committee and the department can’t just adjust our uniform- they are responsible for 1st issue, so is this considered like a ballistic vest?? CDC AND advises against wearing masks.

He’s gonna do his time, get his pension and move 1600 miles away back to Texas laughing his way to the bank. He does not care about this department. At least a boss from this department has some shred of respect for our department and cares what happens to most of the troops. He has nothing to lose.

Where were these masks made?

Who made them?

No original packaging in order to keep
Policemen from knowing the origin of
these masks and raising a rightful stink?

The odor of Chicago-style politically motivated
and orchestrated donkey dung is strong with this one...

Protection of Police Officers and their
families is indeed an afterthought in this town.

"We issue YOU this ineffective mask that WE
wouldn't be caught dead in so shut up, sign for it
and you'd better wear it or else WE will subject YOU
to all manner of jackpot/trick-bag administrative/
disciplinary bullshit designed to take MONEY out of
YOUR pockets."

The larger insult compounding the injury is that
it is four months after the Kung-Flu viral brush fire
exploded into a global conflagration thanks to the
deliberate and mendacious actions by Red China?

The funny bit?

The FBI has been low profile busy vacuuming-up
medical researchers and "students" on the payroll
of the Red Chinese government/military who are
targeting U.S. medical/epidemiological databases
trying to get their grimy paws on research in
order to steal it and reverse engineer a vaccine.

Theft of research/intellectual property from the
U.S. is a cornerstone of Red Chinese political
and economic policy/strategy.

But yeah... Try to have a conversation with the
typical democrat voting Chicago sheep about anything
other than "orange man bad."

"Baaahhh?"
>Look of utter confusion and dumbfoundment<

The same will continue grazing contentedly
even when being eaten alive ass-first.

Stop being sheep...

Use your fat-cap for something
other than a parking spot for your hat.

Or is asking questions, refusing to be bullshitted
and doing your own reality based due diligence
considered "RACIST?"

I will not be signing for one. Nor will I be wearing one.

Until I’m provided with the same protection afforded the likes of Groot and her “security specialists”, my happy ass will continue rollIng the dice with contracting and/or transmitting the democrat overhyped scamdemic covid-19 virus.

Oh, by the way... N95 masks should be worn no longer than 8 hours and cannot be cleaned or disinfected without compromising their protective qualities. Therefore, I’ll be needing one DAILY before I acknowledge receipt of same via my John Hancock if “required” to wear it.

Since this ain’t gonna be happening, I’ve got one thing to say to the failed leadership of this city and department:

The Clown and Dipshit know better than to provide inferior equipment and mandate that city employees wear the equipment. I’m certain Corp Council must have advised the city of their legal responsibility regarding the issuance of the masks.

Ot
Speaking of 3-year wonders, any word on the copper from 006 who was arrested on Thursday in Englewood for discharging his weapon while in front of his house, causing the shot spotter to go off. I’m hearing he was arrested and charged with failure to identify himself as an officer, Agg discharge, battery to the four officers who were arresting him, and assault for saying he was “going to kick their ass”. Hearing Tina Skahill directed the arrest. He must be some connected idiot since I’m hearing he shouldn’t have been on the job to begin with after his background check was flagged, but he still managed to get through. Who was in charge of the unit doing background checks at the time he can on your ask? Well none other than merit LT. Petit and Chief West.



The idiot used to work in 006. Now in 002/call back. Dumb as a box of rocks but was assigned to the 202S2 for a bit against objections. Medical abuser, stupid and on the list to be with cfd. Which is good since he’d have to quit cpd and would never pass the emt test. Has been on medical for eating bad Chinese food, sitting in squad car for 8 hours and now back hurts, more bad Chinese food, etc. tried to have medical integrity unit go after him and was denied. Hope he’s fired and has lots of legal bills.

Cotton masks are good at slowing the spread of an infection when most people are using them but they don't offer the individual protection of a n95 or n100 respirator.

Had leaders from Chicago on up to the Oval Office actually prepared in December, maybe we'd be in a different situation.

SCC,

Off topic but not really. UNIFORM, is up next. The Superintendent is anti outer vest carrier. Looks way too militaristic and sloppy. No more vest carriers for patrol. He is considering a dark blue uniform shirt with dark blue pants.

*No more baseball caps. CPD Crown hats will remain the same.
*No more gym shoes. Boot or shoe that can be polished.
*No more black outer vest carrier, bullet proof vest will be worn under uniform shirt. Outer vest carrier will only be allowed for Detectives, Tact, SWAT and Gang Teams
*Leather duty belt for patrol with proper equipment. No deviation allowed. If you are caught wearing any leather item on the belt that is old and does not meet inspection, automatic SPAR for you and your Sergeant.
*One dark blue uniform shirt will be issued and so will one pair of dark blue uniform pants.
*Light blue shirt will be only worn with the uniform shirt.
*Exempts will continue to wear white shirts. Captains and below will wear dark blue shirt.
* Grooming standards will be enforced. Repeated use of bump cards will not be allowed. Women and men will adhere to proper hair standards.
*Detectives will wear business attire.
Supt could not believe how many variations existed for the uniform. As of June 1st the outer vest carrier will be phased out for patrol. The new dark blue on dark blue uniform for CPD will be approved and issued by Dec 2020.

Here is some advice about masks,

1. Wash your hands before removing your mask.
2. Wash your hands after removing your mask.
3. Wash your face after removing your mask.
4. Don a new clean mask every time. You should have several masks for use each day.

5. Clean the cloth masks using hot water and bleach after each use.
6. If you cannot wash the mask, either dispose of it, or leave it in the open air for several days to kill the viruses. (This doesn't do much for the mucus and exhalations built up inside the mask.)

I purchased them from her. They are washable they have a filter sewn in

Very nicely done. They are the masks she donated for the funerals of our officers who lost their lives to Covid 19

And by wearing this mask I felt it honored those officers

Would have been. a show of class.

So disappointed

I will wear the one I purchased. And if they say I’m out of uniform I believe it my right to mourn and show honor to someone very dear to me

A mask that’s not a N95 mask was never for the protection of the user. It’s to prevent the user from spreading the virus if they are an asymptotic carrier. The more who wear masks, the possible transmission infections is reduced by an exponential factor. But you already knew this because you’re an economist, political scientist, social scientist, mathematician, constitutional scholar, and of course an epidemiologist.

They specifically put that disclaimer on it so they can protect themselves from any liability. When someone uses this mask to protect themselves on a call and then winds up getting seriously ill or dies then the department can refer back to the warning label. They don't want to keep spending money on buying us real masks with higher filtration quality every day so this will be their way out of it. If you want better protection, you will have to pay for it yourself. And I'd bet Fat boy's farm that these masks are all made in wonderful communist China, probably all sprayed with the Wuhan flu virus for good measure, as well as the usual toxic chemicals they love spew into anything they make.

Masks offer absolutely no protection from contracting Corona, but it can make you sick and nauseous from breathing in your own breath (carbon dioxide). I haven't worn a mask at any store I've been to and it's funny to watch people point fingers and stare. I also haven't been asked by store personnel to wear one, but if they did I would politely refuse and if they insisted then I would leave the merchandise I was buying right in the cart and leave.

Wearing a cloth mask under your medical grade mask will increase the life of your medical grade mask. Cloth masks need to be laundered regularly. Wearing a mask does not increase your risk of infection. It will lower the risk of you spreading and infection.

The masks and face coverings are theatrical gimmicks for the Karens and deranged scolds who say they "believe in science" but don't understand either science or rational thinking.

Unless you're using the high grade medical gear, the masks/coverings do not stop the spread of the pathogen. But the hysterics need rules, even bad ones, to comfort them because they are insane.


And btw, just because it might say "Made in USA" doesn't mean it was made in USA.



It's winding down. Yes, just like flu season. If you're fat, diabetic, hypertensive, immunocompromised, believe what Gov. Pritzker says, or just mentally unbalanced, you are free to lock yourself in a hermetically sealed container for as long as you want. Me, I've got a life to live.

SCC,

Off topic but not really. UNIFORM, is up next. The Superintendent is anti outer vest carrier. Looks way too militaristic and sloppy. No more vest carriers for patrol. He is considering a dark blue uniform shirt with dark blue pants.

*No more baseball caps. CPD Crown hats will remain the same.
*No more gym shoes. Boot or shoe that can be polished.
*No more black outer vest carrier, bullet proof vest will be worn under uniform shirt. Outer vest carrier will only be allowed for Detectives, Tact, SWAT and Gang Teams
*Leather duty belt for patrol with proper equipment. No deviation allowed. If you are caught wearing any leather item on the belt that is old and does not meet inspection, automatic SPAR for you and your Sergeant.
*One dark blue uniform shirt will be issued and so will one pair of dark blue uniform pants.
*Light blue shirt will be only worn with the uniform shirt.
*Exempts will continue to wear white shirts. Captains and below will wear dark blue shirt.
* Grooming standards will be enforced. Repeated use of bump cards will not be allowed. Women and men will adhere to proper hair standards.
*Detectives will wear business attire.
Supt could not believe how many variations existed for the uniform. As of June 1st the outer vest carrier will be phased out for patrol. The new dark blue on dark blue uniform for CPD will be approved and issued by Dec 2020.

There are many hoops to change or mandate a uniform deletion or change. Wear out dates have to be figured out for those newly purchased items, FOP input and all new items must be furnished. Do the math on the cost of two shirts issued to everyone but exempts. I don’t think the Groot would expend that kind of cash in these trying times

Single layer cloth masks are useless, worse than that - they're dangerous because they give the wearer a false sense of security, and breathing deeper through the mask results in drawing in more contaminants, and if one is infected - then expelling more. Washing those things only makes the gaps larger in the material so it becomes LESS effective.


Read this recent paper out of the Univ of Chicago regarding the types of cloth and combinations thereof which approach or exceed N95 filtration. Page F, table 1, column 1 is what you want to focus on if you're not into the technical-side of things.

https://dx.doi.org/10.1021/acsnano.0c03252

Supplemental table S2 has the actual sources of the materials used in the testing (Click on the link in the paper, it'll take you to that supplemental information)

Executive Summary: Cotton/Polyester Fill/Cotton quilt = N95 quality. Ensure the gaps around the sides and nose are closed or you lose about 30% effectiveness.

Short of an N95 mask, or a P100 respirator, the best thing to have is the proper combination of cloth materials, fitted around the face and nose to minimize gaps. Have 7 masks - one for each day of the week. At the end of the day, remove the mask, hang it up in the garage or someplace out of the way, go wash your hands, wash your face, wash your hands again.

Let the mask hang there for 7 days - the virus dies between 2-6 days on it's own, so by the 7th day it'll be disinfected.

Rotate to the next day's mask... repeat the process.

Take that useless piece of shit the Dept is handing out, staple it to a copy of the research paper above, write "Refused to sign or accept inadequate PPE" on the thing they wanted you to sign, and leave it with the Desk Sgt. Don't endanger your lives so some no talent ass clown of a politician can feel good about themselves, claim they did something, and get a fat envelope.

Really buddy.

The booze you were drinking all night is wearing off so at 4:00am in the morning you decided to once again talk about your uniform fantasy?

You are the same softball that came up with this 6 months ago.

At least 9000 uniformed members will have to stuff their vests under their uniform shirt in 12 days???
The majority will need a larger shirt.
That one fantasy alone will take months to order enough shirts.

The major monetary/contractual issue:

Back in 1994 when you were in grammar school, we had the last big uniform change.

The department made body armor mandatory for the front and rear panels.

All members hired before 1990 were issued vests that the city had to pay for.
Then, all members received at least $600.00 each (if not more) so they could purchase new uniform shirts and/or a vest carriers made from the color of the uniform shirts.

For your little fantasy the city will have to write a BIG check.
They have absolutely cut overtime to save money. It ain't happening.

FOP will win any grievance if they attempt to just give us "1 new shirt" and think that satisfies the contractual agreement.

Suck it up buttercup, sorry that won't happen you would have to take off that mask to do that and we all know your afraid of taking your mask off. Kind of like an adult pacifier. Enjoy your new life chicken shit.

Where in our General Orders and Uniform Specs does it show a cloth mask? In addition what are the credentials of the manufacturer and the OSHA and CDC Safety ratings? If the answer is NONE then they are unreliable and a hazard. It’s time to stand up!

SCC,

Off topic but not really. UNIFORM, is up next. The Superintendent is anti outer vest carrier. Looks way too militaristic and sloppy. No more vest carriers for patrol. He is considering a dark blue uniform shirt with dark blue pants.

*No more baseball caps. CPD Crown hats will remain the same.
*No more gym shoes. Boot or shoe that can be polished.
*No more black outer vest carrier, bullet proof vest will be worn under uniform shirt. Outer vest carrier will only be allowed for Detectives, Tact, SWAT and Gang Teams
*Leather duty belt for patrol with proper equipment. No deviation allowed. If you are caught wearing any leather item on the belt that is old and does not meet inspection, automatic SPAR for you and your Sergeant.
*One dark blue uniform shirt will be issued and so will one pair of dark blue uniform pants.
*Light blue shirt will be only worn with the uniform shirt.
*Exempts will continue to wear white shirts. Captains and below will wear dark blue shirt.
* Grooming standards will be enforced. Repeated use of bump cards will not be allowed. Women and men will adhere to proper hair standards.
*Detectives will wear business attire.
Supt could not believe how many variations existed for the uniform. As of June 1st the outer vest carrier will be phased out for patrol. The new dark blue on dark blue uniform for CPD will be approved and issued by Dec 2020.

Although I can agree the there's absolutely no uniformity within CPD, you're out of your rabbit @$$ mind if you think this is going to happen. There's no doubt that plenty of coppers walk out looking like a bag of poo during their tour of duty, but in order for there to be any changes to the uniform or uniform standards you would have to make changes gradually.

Important changes are bringing down homicides
Reducing gang violence

Baseball caps. Outer vests gym shoes are not important at this time

Where is the outrage? First, when the actual height of this “pandemic” was raging around Mar 16th, the silence from both the state and the city was deafening and NO protection for First Responders. The manta from City Hall and Springfield immediately was...Blame Trump. Instead of providing answers about lack of preparation or protective gear we were shown meaningless press conferences by Lightfoot and Pritzker and more attacks on Trump. So as this has progressed the attacks on Trump have increased here even though Dem Gov’s Cuomo(NY), Newsome(CA) and Murphy(NJ) have PRAISED the all hands on deck response from DC. Yet at that point we only receive out of date hand sanitizer and (1) mask in a cheesy kit packed by get THIS, a Covid Infected person! Now as every state is starting to emerge we are still mired in this buffoonery that is going to EXTEND by 150 DAYS a now unnecessary quarantine, force police to wear unproven meaningless masks and completely destroy and sink our once great city. My god homeless people and undocumented immigrants are accorded more respect by our elected officials than our first responders and small business owners. When is enough enough?

Hate to tell you, but the the outer vest can be gone overnight. The Dept can direct us to wear the vest under our shirt like they did in the academy. If that happens I’m going to later transfer to another Dept. I hate this place.

To 4am: I heard exactly the same when JFled came aboard and again when GMac came aboard. It was a “done deal” according to many blog posts at the time. I will agree on the long facial hair and those goofs with mullets, they look like shit.

There are many hoops to change or mandate a uniform deletion or change. Wear out dates have to be figured out for those newly purchased items, FOP input and all new items must be furnished. Do the math on the cost of two shirts issued to everyone but exempts. I don’t think the Groot would expend that kind of cash in these trying times

5/19/2020 10:33:00 AM

This is being done for the city to get Homeland Security Grant. Armor plates will be in squad car in case of an Active Shooter. You can’t throw those plates on over the vest. How stupid is this city!! I’m glad I’m gone in two years. I would love to see some white shirt tell me to take off my outer vest cover. I won’t do it. Fuck downtown Dallas Brown.

Not that it's happening anyway, but the only thing they'd have to first issue would be different colored uniform shirts. Your soft body armor came with an undershirt carrier, and external vest covers weren't a mandatory purchase until 20 December 2013. However, everyone is still supposed to have the undershirt carrier that their soft body armor came with.

Remember those aviation police? They were issued new uniforms 2 shirts 2 pants and jacket. Their new uniforms don't look any different than what they were wearing before that United fiasco. Point being a company came in and supplied 300 officers new uniforms. They had fitting dates then few weeks time they were issued their new uniforms. My guess is the same company wants to get their hands on 9000-11000 new issues. Always follow the money

First off why are the masks black! That's racist! Reveruns come forward and ban black masks.

The use of the mask, perfect for Halloween. You can discuss scientific theory about n95. But people have no idea of contagion or microbiology/virology.

The contagion has been everywhere/all around the world. Numbers like seasonal flu. Consequences: 1984, Soylent green, serf-veilance.

Probably so . Unless the contract has changed ( I am retired) the city has to pay for the first issue of any uniform change. There are way too many issues to solve right now besides what color your shirt is or if you wear a outside vest cover.
