New Cars, Old Paint Job

They've been sitting on these cars for months, but they're finally going to hit the Districts:
  • The first batch of new Chicago police squad cars hit city streets Thursday. Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the 40 vehicles are another tool to try to curb gun violence.

    Each of the new police SUV are worth $47,000. They are equipped with a computer that can pull up ShotSpotter alerts in certain areas, access all police databases and get officers to crime scenes as efficiently as possible.

    Johnson said gunshot-detection systems, real-time crime mapping, police databases and electronic crash reporting are some of the new crime-fighting tools in these vehicles.
Um, our e-mail relates that the current computers can already pull up Shotspotter info in 007 and 011 - if you can find a computer that functions that is. Same thing with the databases. And the E-crash program was rolled out last year - it isn't new technology. In fact, it was "stolen" from the State Police who have been using it for years.

And these cars get officers to the "crime scenes efficiently"? They're self-driving? That's fucking awesome if true. In fact, we'll be transferring to one of these districts as soon as Special Ed posts openings and we get that lobotomy we've been saving for.

And get a load of this awesome fluff job that Channel 7 fell for:
  • Even the lights on these squad cars were designed for maximum impact. They are supposed to enhance police presence in neighborhoods. Johnson said the cars are meant to show the community that officers "are here to be a visible and trusted resource at all times."
Really? Bright lights are going to engender trust? Are you fucking kidding us? What moron wrote this? What moron signed off on it? What moron media outlet publi....oh wait, that was Channel 7. Geez, if we know bright flashy lights would make the "community" trust us, Rahm should have wrapped our asses in Christmas lights hooked up to a battery pack.

There wa also a report on the radio that claimed these cars will allow us to "get to crime scenes faster." Seeing as how chases get called off when speeds hit anything above 25 MPH, and these are after all, $47,000 vehicles, the chances of the Department allowing us to go anywhere "faster" are slim and none.

In fact, due to the cost of each of these vehicles, they should not be used in high crime areas, where they may be shot, crashed into or defaced. Reserve them for the low crime area.

If these new cars with these new computers can pick up shot spotter then what's the need for the cell phones. How much was spent on the phones when the pdt could have been updated? The phones have that bullshit hunch lab that nobody uses which could have been updated on the pdt as well. Once again this is what happens when morons are in charge.

SCC - Evidently the siren will change tones when entering an intersection. Light bar will have a low power mode with steady lights at the ends of the bar when stationary (like at a crime scene in order to remain low profile) or to remain visible while patrolling (like on Michigan Ave. or the lakefront) which some high crime cities like Buenos Aires and Rio de Janiero use.

Hell - just have Wheezzee record a siren tone that wails "Five-0, Five-0, PO PO!!

We were watching a police chase video out of a Hollywood movie where the CPD squad was trying to run a motorcycle off the road and into a fence at over 100mph. My watch insists it's real and a unit but the CPD car has both red and blue lights. Google Chicago cop vs motorcycles, I have money riding on this that it's not real, looks like a tv show and I hope no one on CPD is that insane.

OT, sorry. I'm a couple days behind. Just watched this video. Looked pretty real to me. Not sure of the location. Best I could determine is the outskirts of O'Hare?? That would explain the red emergency lights on the Explorer as it could have been a 050 unit.

Ford has a sweetheart deal with agencies since 2000 and
wants to keep it going with a 25-man cop advisory panel for
upgrades each year. But you can't beat the laws of math and
depreciation. I saw two 2016 models available on CarGurus.
(Ford Police Interceptor Utility). Burnsville, MN, odo 42,433,
$22,889 (-51% off base price of $47 K). Humble, TX, odo 8 K,
$27,500 (-41% off base price of $47 K).
Even the media is a mouthpiece for Ford. The newspaper link
article states the bells and whistles are "worth $47 K."
Stop and think of the street cred you'll cop doing those reverse J
turns. And it will pay for itself if you put a plow up front for winter
snow removal. Thank you, Ford.

For one minute, let's say we actually believe all this "spot shorter" bs. Does the city really want cops on the scene of a bonifide shots fired call within seconds of the actual shots call/location? Seems to me that would probably result in more officer involved shootings, and God knows in this era of de-escalation they don't want that. All bs pandering to the media. Also, why the bosses are frustrated is beyond me. Seems to me police are doing about all they can to try and bring some of this violence under control, but the Communities where these fools lay their heads have done little/nothing to clean up their own mess.

It goes right into the computer. And an officer who is accustomed to using it can do it quickly. A State Policeman did a crash report for me on his computer. In a snap! Quickly! Then zoom, out of the printer came the copy of the report. Better than paper reports. Some guys love that carbon paper, however. Cops in the 21st Century don't know what carbon paper is!

Can knock out a paper report in 10 minutes while sitting in the car while my partner is gathering information on one vehicle I the other, boom done. Now you have to go into the station and do it, 10 minutes turns into an hour and not to mention the moron who developed the system. They must not want very accurate diagrams of what happened because you can only do a very generic depiction. Oh well 3 accidents in one night then grab some lunch, time to go home not bad thank you to the incompetents who run this department. And one more thing, let's mount the PDT in a position so you can only use one hand to type and strain your eyeballs trying to see the screen because it can only be tilted so far. And not to mention that they are locked so you can't remove them, I've been trying to find a key around our station for years.

Bright Lights? Oh yeah, residents trying to sleep - or eat dinner- will just LOVE more police lights coming into their homes more and better and brighter.

There needs to be a SERIOUS open letter done, one from The Chicago Cops, no not from the CPD press secretary, not even from the Union(s), just the Coppers, City and County together. This letter ought call out the garbage and name names like this website does so often, cough cough DAILY! A list of Declared complaints ALONG with their solutions, one rivaling and patterned after our own Declaration is in Order.

It needs sent the same day to the political players, the newspapers, the TV talking heads and the People of the City, County and State. I am not talking a letter to the editor of 150 words or even a bullet point big issue list of the day. I mean a Real, Thorough, in depth "report", you know a REAL version of the FRAUD of a DOJ "report" that rushed out at the end of the obamadrama era.

It is the only way to get the people behind you, as you switch from doing politicians bidding to real, actual, Right and Proper Policing (which is not this scam called "proactive prevention" that is nothing more than preventing exercise of rights revenue generation. You know it. We know it. Admit it. You all have an IMPOSSIBLE task being demanded to stop things BEFORE they happen, because that is indeed IMPOSSIBLE. You can only catch and punish evildoers, you can not code evil to destruction and you can not enforce preemptively enough and still have a free people. So JUST ADMIT IT. Accept it. You are not there to PREVENT a damn thing. You never REALLY were.

The notion that you were, that you are, is EXACTLY where these bright lights means people will embrace you attitude COMES FROM. Wanna stop THAT crap? Well, you have to abandon the big lie, the lie that you are there to "prevent".

SCC - A frequent, valid complaint is the Sgt.s grabbing the new cars. We all know that most Sgt.s are merely skipping from call to call to log the responding units, the ones who are actually running to the calls in high mileage squads. So, if you're on board, why not at least have the working coppers submit a shame list of Sergeants/Lieutenants who have carjacked the new squads as their personal toys?
Some white shirts may merely laugh but your blog mentioned a Bensenville Ford dealer which had a lot full of new CPD cars wasting away. And a couple weeks later - they magically appear. (Lewinsky must have stuttered his way to fleet management to get the electronics and other equipment installed at the rate of forty a week.) Proof positive that your blog DOES make a difference. And let's see how many
Lie-tenants used their illegally gained rank to usurp a new squad while they still arrive late/leave early/bond out their relatives.

And to Deano - a big shame on you! You negotiated NADA last contract except the demise of retiree health care!

maybe they should use the ISIS strategy and just buy a bunch of used Toyota pickups, mounting guns on the back, of course"

No new strategy here, the Somalis are the originators of the Tactical Toyos, called them Technicals which they rampaged the local populace on the streets of Mogadishu

The sgts should get the new cars because they last about a week on the watch when the three year wonders wreck them driving like morons to some bullshit baby mama drama domestic with a gun (that don't exist) if po ' s don't destroy them then they leave them with old chicken bones and garbage and god knows what else. Oh don't forget the brown stripes down the sides from the assholes who do dip and spit their disgusting tobacco spit allover the car. Yeah go cry some more about the cars.

Cops in the 21st Century don't know what carbon paper is!

Well, I wasn't around in the late 1890's but I know what a buffalo nickel looks like. I'm here in the 21st century with all you know it alls and I know what Operation Linebacker was and who Eisenhower, Marshall, Patton, McArthur, TOJO and Rommel were. I know what a Packard was and it was before I was born. I know what streaming video is. Maybe you geniuses should think for a minute that just MAYBE, there were things that were here for like 5 minutes before you were born.

Not to mention that if you did a traffic crash report in Chicago, Mr. 21st Century Police, how would you NOT know what carbon paper is?

I'm with the NYPD armored squads.
This "faster" bullshit refers to the 5-speed
tranny on the police special. What are the
numbers? Just how much faster than the
Joe Baga Donuts version?

There is a good possibility we would have enough cars if we could stop the "this is my take home car" BS.
Just drive thru the N/W or S/W side and count all the MP plated cars. I did it this am, in a 3 block radius of my home and counted 6. All were un-marked, and only one newer car. Most were older ford Vics. so we know these are not tact. lt's Capt's or commanders etc.
Every Sgt. in my unit has a take home car and all they use it for is to drive from home to HQ and lunch. No other justifiable reason. Meanwhile Det's and Officers wait for a car to do police work.

We need to stop this BS perk that wastes our tax money.

Says the merit Sgt who now that was made Sgt, forgot what it's like to spend the longer hours we spend in the squads, cramped up with another po inside.

And in Congo, Uganda and Zimbabwe/Rhodesia
10 years before that.

Kinda wonder how those hopped-up fools hanging
off the back of a careening Toyota pick-up can fire
and withstand the concussion from that twin 14.5mm
monster...

"YAAAHH!"
>SCREEECH!
POOMP-POOMP-POOMP-POOMP-POOMP!<
"YAAAHH!"
