OT Cuts Coming

  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the city of Chicago “can’t afford” police overtime expenses at the current level and called on Superintendent Eddie Johnson to develop a cost-cutting plan.

    Lightfoot said she’s “angry and frustrated” with the department’s overtime expenses, which totaled $67.6 million in the first six months of the year, according to a Sun-Times report.

    Asked who’s to blame for the overspending, Lightfoot said, “Every department head has to take responsibility for what goes on.”

    “I’ve talked to Superintendent Johnson about it. We’re going to challenge him to come up with a very specific proposal. When you’ve got 13,000 sworn members, there should be no reason why they blow their budget,” Lightfoot said. “We’ve already started a conversation about what we’re going to do next year to make sure that doesn’t happen. We can’t afford it. The truth is, we can’t afford it.”
Time to look at cutting the fat Groot.
  • How many Chiefs do we have? Six? You need three, tops, one for Patrol, one for Investigations, one for Admin bullshit.
  • How many Deputy Chiefs? Nineteen? You need maybe six like we had 20 years ago. One for each Patrol Area, One for each Detective Area. Maybe one spare for furlough relief.
  • How many Captains? Forty? Redundant - eliminate them all and put their cars back in the vehicle pool .
  • How many officers are there compiling statistics to make pretty charts for you? It numbers on the hundreds, but it should be zero. And those are the people who shouldn't be getting Duty Availability - they aren't available for diddly shit.
And stop canceling everyone's holidays off. That costs you a couple of million every major holiday. Knock it off.

Look at that - we just saved you about eight million.

Chime in with your suggestions.

Great suggestions !!! No more canceled holidays, No more canceled rdo’s For Tac/gangs, get rid of VRI, there is no need for OT because we’re fully staffed at over 13,000 according to the mayor. We have plenty of officers to cover these areas were at full strength. Use their words and stats against them. There’s also no need for ot because crime is down. WTF is she talking about ?? The city can’t afford it she’s the boss !! Get rid of all if it ☠️

This is fucking rich! She is responsible for the majority of the OT to try and keep her violent constituents under control. Now like everything else, the common copper is the whipping boy. The vast amount of that OT was MANDATORY! Now that it’s getting colder and closer to arbitration she wants to place the blame on us. You (progressives) took the power from the police now you need way more bodies just to attempt to try and maintain a modicum of control. The blame lies squarely in the mirror, Groot.

Wait until the swipe out starts. I will find that 10:55 traffic stop that will take me a good half hour or so to complete. I’ll probably write two tickets. I’m hitting the cash box. I’ll do this a couple of times a month. Then, I’ll get the court notification. Gotta go to court. Don’t want the deviation. Hitting the cash box for that too. Cha-Ching. (Oh by the way, I’m not going to remember any of the specifics of any of the tickets I write, so you won’t even get the fine money)

Oh, and don’t cancel days off on holiday weekends and you won’t have to pay that OT either. Stupid bitch.

Let me get this straight. Overtime, not a problem through the summer. Result, crime (murder) is down, yippee, success. Summer is over and overtime is now verboten (forbidden.) The next crime spike traditionally occurs from just before Thanksgiving, to just after New Years (you're welcome Mayor for this tip on Policing.) Will overtime be an issue then? No, it won't. She'll next make it an issue in February, when LL is "Shocked, Shocked I say," that soooo much O.T. was used to keep the mayhem down for the Holidays. It's all Bullshit Political Theater! So far as I see, LL hasn't offered solutions to anything, only excuses.

Mayor Lower Than Whale Shit doesn’t understand that all 13K police don’t work the streets at the same time. Empty HQ of police and replace with civilians, empty the district office personnel and replace with civilians, empty all desk officers in all other units and replace with civilians and you still won’t have enough cops per watch on the streets. Oh wait we can empty Call Back. No still not enough and besides some of those cops have been stripped so can’t use them. Oh I know force everyone off the the Medical and IOD. No can’t do that? Wait, of course, it’s so simple! Unleash the cops. Allow them to be the police and enforce the laws and ordinances without fear of being hung by the thumbs. Na can’t do that. I know, I know hire thousands of more police. No, can’t afford the salaries, bennies, and pensions. I guess crime will continue to run rampant and OT will continue to be the answer for more cops on the streets to try and hold back the tide of a city in criminal decline.

EVERYONE already knows EVERY city department is overflowing with unnecessary upper management positions. If your going to start with cuts in the police department, start with Chiefs and Deputy Chiefs. Then re evaluate which Commanders are actually NECESSARY.... Demote unnecessary Commanders and have their positions replaced with Captains and/or Lieutenants... Demotions will create more Lieutenants to fill in vacancies instead of making more Lieutenants. Send the hundreds of unnecessary administrative spots citywide back to the streets with all the unnecessary slugs hiding in headquarters. Next, clean up callback. Finish “ investigating “ cases ASAP.... Shit or get off the pot. Separate those who deserve it and close the bullshit cases..

Absolutely right! she needs to start making cuts at the top. Way too many brass. The fact that we have 19 Deputy Chiefs is disgraceful.We don’t need any Deputy Chiefs if you ask me. Just have the Chief of patrol delegate directly to the commanders. Hell, make the Chief earn his pay. Captain is also a HUGE waste. Complete overlap. Between commander and the captain we have two massive salaries sitting in the same office doing the same thing. Why can’t Lightfoot see all this waste? Also drains the pension with crap. Stop promoting all these unnecessary brass. Friends promoting friends.

Don’t anyone get angry but - is it just me or, is about 70% of the Department clueless. I no longer want to get involved in anyone else’s job for fear they will get me in trouble. Most officers I in counter don’t know the orders. Most try not to do any paper. Just code jobs. If they do a paper job they don’t want to write much. They leave out a lot of the elements. I feel most lack any education. Or are missing common scenes. I find it hard to believe that just about everyone has some college. If I didn’t have 12 years I would look into switching my profession. My morale is zero in my District. This job really blows. I don’t want OT no way. I hope they can figure out a way so as I can never get any.

Twenty and out! Can’t wait to see the sign Welcome to Tennessee in my future!

Tact teams and units having multiple days off cancelled e dry period during the summer, “just because.”
Holiday weekends have days off cancelled, typically as close to the last minute as you can get.
I know it’s cheaper than training and paying benefits for additional officers but the city has gotten out of control with these mandatory cancelled days off.

You need your days off to decompress, spend time with your loved ones, and protect your mental health. The bosses say they care, but if they did, they wouldn’t abuse us like that and overwork us.

Lori wants to cancel days off, and offer up volunteer OT to plug gaps, and then blame the police for the OT costs? As Henry Hill said, “fuck you, pay me.” But I’d often just rather have the time off.

Fuck it, carry me on days when I have court. What ever the number of police isn’t enough! Another experiment going on at the cost of public safety.

Do they want the public safe or save money. Because they can’t get both. Negative crime reported by the News is costly, always saying crime is down is a fantasy. Chicago neighborhoods show the true cost of crime on humans and property.

I wish they would stop making us all work on holidays so they can save money.

I work a fair days work for a fair days pay. What else do they want? My blood.......... Fuck their OT! Stick it up their @$$, smoke that in your weed pipe DemocRATS!

The easiest and quickest way to save police OT is to end VRI.

Another easy cut is the Safe Passage program. It was created only a few years ago by Rahm, is useless and was only a patronage hiring program for the Community’s unemployable. End Safe Passage for immediate savings and no change to any city service.

OT hit 100 million this week thanks to the summer, fourth of July, labor day, and numerous festivals. That was the straw that really broke the camels back. There is still almost four months to go and it's very possible that the final OT tab will
be 120 million at the end of the year. Major major changes coming in regards to overtime involving court and staff shortage. Basically all court notifications by the states attorneys office will now have to be approved by a Sgt or higher. Also, the OT cost cutting is not being conducted by Special Ed (despite what groot is saying on TV) or any of his staff but by Susie Park, the director of police finances who is not talking to anybody on the fifth floor. When it's completed, Eddie will be told to sign his name at the bottom. Needless to say, if you rely on OT, best start looking for a side gig asap.

Court. Box one and box 2 only. No need for 9 officer.. I.E an entire gang, tac or narcotics team to sit at 26th and Cal for a PCS arrest where only 2 or 3 officers may testify. No more in district RDO OT initiatives. No more cancelled RDOs period no matter how much you wanna “flood the zone.” It’s unpopular, but in the interest of cutting OT then on these holidays take your tac, gang and mission teams from slow districts like 020,016,017, 002, 024, 022 and put them in your busier districts like 010,010,015,003,007,006,008. It’s highly unpopular but I’m only talking about ideas. Also; take 6 officers by reverse seniority or volunteer from every district in the city on each watch for the entire weekend and put them together as a “unit”. That’s 156 officers to use as a saturation unit for these busy districts. Only extension of your is for a person in custody... period. Cut out mandatory staff meetings. No more fake OT for the DIOs of the district for follow ups. All photo arrays for the D Unit need to be done during your tour of duty no matter what the schedule of the victim or witness is. No more running witnesses to the grand jury and making it an 8 hour tour on days then go right into working afternoons... (ahem, area south..) . There Gould be a cpd officer or Sgt at the door of grand jury checking officers in and out. When they get to grand jury they sign in.. as they leave the jury room and true bill is announced the Sgt should immediately sign them out as they no longer have a use for them.. I know, I know.. the dics need to go across to the other side for a “meeting” with the state about a “big case”.... for 6 hours.. yeah right. It can be done. Pretty easily. Detectives make tons of OT with terrible Clarence rates.. take the OT away.. it’s not like you can get any more cases suspended. Keep an electronic log of how much OT goes into a specific RD number or case. Then when that case is closed out see how much OT was spent on it and what was the disposition of the case. So a shooting that had 180hrs of OT that was suspended two weeks later with only two progresses and a suspended report means that case was dodged and used to just make money.

We don't have a manpower problem. We have a police and distribution of manpower problem.

We have too many new hires who act like they are 20+ year vets and don't want to do anything. I get it, its a different time but Jesus! you signed up to be the police. Sometimes you have to arrest someone, write a ticket, tell someone no.

Secondly its time to take a hard look at all the plain clothe units. Start with district tact and gangs. 1 team each of 10 and a Sgt working straight afternoons is all we need. Put the rest back in uniform on patrol. 8 guys down on a one bag arrest doesn't cut it anymore.

Com stat is a huge waste of manpower. Take those Officers who are crunching the numbers and put them back out. Stop hiding desk officers in the districts.

Make it so no one has weekends off at HQ or elsewhere. At least a F/S or S/M DOG. There is no reason recruits should have weekends off while in the academy. Put them in DOGs along with the instructors. Along with this no one, and I mean no one, with under 10 years on should be inside or teaching at the academy.

Unless you are a Detective, undercover OCD, dist tact and gangs, or on some kind of special assignment you should be in uniform.

Take home cars need to be looked at hard. The only one in a district who should have a take home car is the D/C. If you work at HQ in any capacity, except for the Supe and 1st, you do not need a take home car. I may consider an exception for SWAT if they are on call.

The mayor is experiencing what is called "Cognitive Dissonance" her ego encouraged her to run for mayor, she was elected that inflated her ego , now she is angry and frustrated that the problems are much bigger than her knowledge and ability so naturally the blame can not be with her perception of just what the problems are, the greater the ego the more the inability to admit what you don't know. Rahm Emanuel parachuted in to the job due to the clout he has with Obama, the whole point was to inflate his resume for higher office, here again the job was bigger than his ego but he was smart enough to just put bandages on some problems , kick the can down the road regarding the financial problems (making them worse) declare victory and escape, unfortunately for Mayor Lightfoot she doesn't have Rahm's political acumen or clout

No more OT here in Filmore, the well has run dry and plenty of tears to go around. Really cleaned up with the moolah having to do nothing and I mean nothing for it. We knew it would end, some cops will soon have visits from the repo man for all those new shiney toys they bought.

You Sir are a douche who has a little knowledge but no experience. First is that motions for cases are dictated by the defense attorney not the ASA. Meaning ASA doesn’t know which officer will be called therefore all officers need to be there. Photo arrays and interviews with victims and witnesses are dictated by the availability of the victim and witnesses. How do you think it’ll look when a victim tells the media “ The police never showed me pictures.” Furthermore you idea of an electronic log for each case shows how little you know. There is an investigative checklist that that should be done on each case regardless of the outcome of the case. Reports, interviews of victims and witnesses, hospital records, subpoenas, phone records, video retrieval and review and documentation, search warrants, etc etc.. only after you have exhausted all these tools should a case be suspended. Detectives have been forced to cut corners but that’s how all cases should be worked.

I can’t go on almost everything you suggested is just stupid.

Hey LL you want to cut expenses? Why look at the people that work their asses off and miss out on their entire summer year after year because they have to work non-stop. Why not look at the black hole of “social benefits” dished out to the welfare dependents across the city- having kids they can’t afford and committing the obscene amount of crime that requires us to work these hours in the first place? Do you think we like having our weekends canceled? Our holidays ruined? Do you think we like having to go to court on our time off? Because we don’t. You make us do this bullshit then bitch about it later. Go fuck yourself.

Lift the residence requirement, more people will apply. Man power solved. Oh wait.... you need our money to fund your communist city of welfare dependent leaches. Never mind.

The prickwanker plan is working.

Just not as efficiently in all it's intended results as hoped for.

1. Reduce county costs to free up graft pot money = Check!!!

2. Produce abumdant public perception of sjw victory!!! = Check!!!

3. Return to hoods their most prolitfic chaos producers = Check!!!

4. Present hood residents with choice of submission to democrat party subservimance or whatcha gonna do about it, beyotches??? = Check

Alas, some unintended byproducts of said successful prickwanker plan elements have manifested:

1. The Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Beyotches??? element = Shoot up the hood, muthafuckazz!!!

2. The above unintended byproduct has put a crimp in the pimp of the planned glorious celebration of the victory of the sjw element perception deception.

3. The "saved" county graft pot money has been offset by the huge increased neccessity of the big hog city budget increases needed to pay for the increases required to attempt to impede the increased chaos pumped back into the hoods via the prickwanker plan element pertaining to the above described county graft pot money.

4. As those pesky coppers insist upon being paid, well, this has resulted in the big hog city being at odds with the big hog balled county grafting machine.


Bug Eyes mayor vs Banjo Buns county boss mutt = city graft hog vs county graft hog.

And the CPS huge gluttonous hog mutant is about to use it's "leverage" of pissing their hog juices all over "the children", if they don't get more hog trough feedings.

Court. Box one and box 2 only. No need for 9 officer.. I.E an entire gang, tac or narcotics team to sit at 26th and Cal for a PCS arrest where only 2 or 3 officers may testify. No more in district RDO OT initiatives. No more cancelled RDOs period no matter how much you wanna “flood the zone.” It’s unpopular, but in the interest of cutting OT then on these holidays take your tac, gang and mission teams from slow districts like 020,016,017, 002, 024, 022 and put them in your busier districts like 010,010,015,003,007,006,008. It’s highly unpopular but I’m only talking about ideas. Also; take 6 officers by reverse seniority or volunteer from every district in the city on each watch for the entire weekend and put them together as a “unit”. That’s 156 officers to use as a saturation unit for these busy districts. Only extension of your is for a person in custody... period. Cut out mandatory staff meetings. No more fake OT for the DIOs of the district for follow ups. All photo arrays for the D Unit need to be done during your tour of duty no matter what the schedule of the victim or witness is. No more running witnesses to the grand jury and making it an 8 hour tour on days then go right into working afternoons... (ahem, area south..) . There Gould be a cpd officer or Sgt at the door of grand jury checking officers in and out. When they get to grand jury they sign in.. as they leave the jury room and true bill is announced the Sgt should immediately sign them out as they no longer have a use for them.. I know, I know.. the dics need to go across to the other side for a “meeting” with the state about a “big case”.... for 6 hours.. yeah right. It can be done. Pretty easily. Detectives make tons of OT with terrible Clarence rates.. take the OT away.. it’s not like you can get any more cases suspended. Keep an electronic log of how much OT goes into a specific RD number or case. Then when that case is closed out see how much OT was spent on it and what was the disposition of the case. So a shooting that had 180hrs of OT that was suspended two weeks later with only two progresses and a suspended report means that case was dodged and used to just make money.

Sorry dude the loss of activity threat disappeared a long time ago, they have already accepted the fact that there be violence DT/ Mich Ave.

Last year-to 2 years ago, Rahm put the cost of VRI on the individual units of the officers that work VRI in an effort to quiet critics for spending 75 million a year instead of hiring more police. So it now looks like OT spending at the district level is out of control. They had a 5 year chart how overtime was up: 10 35 45 50 million (not exact #'s but you get the point). The Black hawks, laquon protests, Cubs WS. The last number, the biggest jump was the VRI switch-a-rue.

Also Its not unusual for tier 2 districts aka civilization has to hire P.O.s back just to meet the requirement of 2 man bet cars or at least one street supervisor.

As for the meets, nothing important ever comes out of them. If some wants to report a crime or problem then go to the station and make a report. When a CAPS officer has to do something other than fun an games, such as real police work, they say call 911 and have patrol handle it.

Ms Mayor, the answer is simple. Hire new police officers at lower rates then make their raises at a lower and slower rate followed by lowering the retirement age to 52 and make them pay higher percentages for the first three years until they turn 55 then return back to same rate. This will not only save you money in the long run, you will also rid the dept of all the “old timers” that aren’t willing to “adapt” to the new standards and have yourself a new dept in about 10-15 years! Plus more savings with the older officers gone...at an average of $90k base salary a year. Problem solved. Nothing happens over night, but this is a great start. Take a survey (like the one you sent about our budget) to determine how many officers with 20+ years would pay the extra money in healthcare costs and how many would like to see the age dropped and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

All you need is one Lt and the rest can be done by Sgts. When the Lt is off then highest Sgt gets Out of a Grade pay, it’s cheaper in the long run and just as effective. There’s TOOOOOO many supervisors doing nothing. So how bout a few supervisions doing their jobs as opposed to a whole lot of supervisors doing nothing.

If she really wants to save money she should immediately get rid of compstat. Every compstat meeting they pay through the nose in OT. And that’s not even mentioning all the officer’s in the districts that their entire job is to run compstat numbers. Some have multiple officers and even sgts doing this job. I’d the Cmdr’s are doing their jobs and the area deputy chiefs doing his job by keeping the Cmdr’s accountable, then why in the world do we need a compstat where they need a hundred people there at each meeting. It should be just the deputy chiefs and Cmdr’s at MOST. Why would they need to call Lts up to a podium to jackpot and embarrass them in front of everyone when the Cmdr should be handling that at the district. I guess they’re admitting the Cmdr’s aren’t doing their jobs if they need to do this at compstat?

She's been in office since May, so where the hell was she when they signed the orders to cancel all the RDOs, all the weekends, all the holidays that cost the city this money in overtime? This nonsense has been going on for the last 5 years and getting worse. And we don't have 13K officers- that number is so fucking inflated it has been floating above the ionosphere for some time now. People are retiring by the hundreds each year and no one other than bosses' children/friends and the desperate even would even consider taking the job, courtesy of yours truly, Obama- the biggest American hating conman ever to be elected. He just had another multimillion dollar mansion built btw, but hey its all about wealth redistribution right?!?

Its no small wonder why he’s #1.

Gaudy Groot budget snoops have yet to song and dance with the nonessentials, those vast resources of District CAPS and HQ.
Wonder what the GrootForceDetail makes in OT (for just 120 days so far) and really is it necessary to pay ne’er on the streets POs at a D3 rate for basically standing around or picking up steamed and blocked fedoras from the haberdashery?

Id expect the finger pointing will start with the 3 Areas and will get most if not all the heat. District OT was always in check, reserved for the best of the best number humpers.

How can Cook County help...?

Without a doubt, there will have to be exceptions.

ETs coming in at the end of the tour with 30+ inventories from the homicide they just processed can’t just be passed off to the next watch. There’s that whole thing called “chain of custody” and each item of evidence inventoried just doesn’t get heat sealed in a plastic bag. Nope, there’s labels that must also be generated, bags secured with tape and sealed with evidence tape, etc. The typical ET inventory takes at least twice as long as a “regular” inventory. And then there’s the Crime Scene Processing Report. EVERY crime scene photo taken must be described in this report. Extensive 041A’s one 0110’s can result in HUNDREDS of photos. Believe me when I tell you it is a slow process.

Canine handlers automatically (COURT DECISIONS awarded as a result of grievance and law suits) get time and a half when their time to care for and transport their canine to and from home and maintain their vehicles, etc is interrupted for any reason. Having to drive to the nearest district to swipe in & out would cut into this time. I know handlers that will be submitting OT slips 2x a day when they’re driving somewhere to swipe in/out on time when they should be preparing the squad, loading water, gear etc., feeding, grooming, walking their dog. There’s a lot more associated with that gig than must know. The dog doesn’t cease to exist at the end of the tour or on RDOs either, hence the paid time each day the handlers get to maintain city/department property (vehicle and animal). Interrupt that and you’re gonna pay them a premium, Groot.

Then there’s SWAT. These guys also have take home cars. Will they be paid OT for the time it takes them to go swipe somewhere when they leave home to start their shift? Will they be allowed to leave early to try and swipe out and get home when their shift officially ends? The answer is “NO”.

Can’t forget the officers assigned to narcotics, intelligence etc who have take home covert or enforcement vehicles. Same considerations/exceptions will have to be considered and applied.

In short, anyone that has a take-home vehicle is going to have to be compensated for time spent traveling to and from work as they are caring for/in control of city property. Or at the bare minimum, compensated for driving to and from a location to swipe in and out. If not, there will have to be provisions made for such employees to already be on city time when they’re enroute to swipe in. And they’ll have to be allowed to swipe out early, thus allowing them to get home from wherever they swipe out from. And just wait until weather or traffic conditions occasionally extend that travel time. And, no, the harebrained idea of keeping all the aforementioned vehicles at department sites isn’t quite feasible. SWAT shouldn’t have to respond from home to Homan to load gear and find their cars while an HBT or active shooter is in progress. Canine people won’t put their department dog in their personal car to drive it to work to put it in a department vehicle.

You want input to cut the fat Mizz Mayor? You’d best do your homework or else it WILL end up costing you more when these guys start dropping winnable grievances and OT slips for extension of tour on a daily basis. I guarantee this whole swipe in/out process will be implemented half assed like everything else on this job because the planning that went into it was done by fucking imbeciles that were never the working police and have no grasp of the reality of day to day operations of this department.

Sit back and observe ... this will be yet another EPIC FAIL CLUSTERFUCK. Guaranteed.

In office for little over 100 days the Mayor appears to be showing periods of mental stress or inability to deal with a number of city issues. Most recent is city financing ($838M deficit), expenditures (bloated and unnecessary programs -Sanctuary City, Contracts, Graft/Corruption) and related funding streams (Gambling, Recreational Drugs).

With crime spiraling out of control from the previous administration to the current, the Mayor appears to be confused on how best to mitigate the city's criminal element, especially on Holiday weekends. Working with a base line of 13,000 officers under her direction, Police Administrators cancel leave and routinely place 1000K additional police personnel for law enforcement purposes back on duty. The cost associated with salary and benefits for this effort are extraordinary and remarkable for budgetary purposes.

The Mayor's remarks demonstrate her lack of in-depth understanding of the city's crime problem, fails to understand her fiduciary responsibility and sound principles of basic municipal financing, an suffers from an inexperienced and knowledgeable staff.

By her own admission, having such huge municipal financial problems, she continues to allow for additional costs of police personnel knowing full well the financial pitfall of such decision making. Clear thinking and decision making on the Mayor's part appears to be lacking. Confusion, poor management and messaging are her hallmarks thus far.

Sadly, it is clear these poor traits and qualities are the legacy of the current Mayor and her predecessors. To see and experience the decline of another major city is truly disheartening and difficult to understand.

Lightfoot wants to stop impounding cars for suspended licenses. 1 car with two POs making $60.6/hr in OT and working 8 hours an RDO costs just under $970. 1 impound makes the city money ($1000-$970). A couple parkers and movers (you can pick which fine amount you wanna tack on) and the city really runs a profit. It's not OT that's the issue, it's how the OT is used.

The DUI guys are renowned for making so much in OT but they actually make the city more money than what they annually gross just by the $2,000 impounds (man, if dum dum is driving near a park or school add another $1,000 and if suspended add another $1,000). Just the $2,000 in 1 DUI impound will cover all the court costs and still leave plenty for the city.

Imagine a DUI unit (not the traffic unit) where Gangs/Tact/Saturation/Summer mobile/etc. can simply give an easy ring to come take the DUI. They currently avoid them like the plague. Just call out your DUI guys. Make use of your assets.

Court. Box one and box 2 only. No need for 9 officer.. I.E an entire gang, tac or narcotics team to sit at 26th and Cal for a PCS arrest where only 2 or 3 officers may testify. No more in district RDO OT initiatives. No more cancelled RDOs period no matter how much you wanna “flood the zone.” It’s unpopular, but in the interest of cutting OT then on these holidays take your tac, gang and mission teams from slow districts like 020,016,017, 002, 024, 022 and put them in your busier districts like 010,010,015,003,007,006,008. It’s highly unpopular but I’m only talking about ideas. Also; take 6 officers by reverse seniority or volunteer from every district in the city on each watch for the entire weekend and put them together as a “unit”. That’s 156 officers to use as a saturation unit for these busy districts. Only extension of your is for a person in custody... period. Cut out mandatory staff meetings. No more fake OT for the DIOs of the district for follow ups. All photo arrays for the D Unit need to be done during your tour of duty no matter what the schedule of the victim or witness is. No more running witnesses to the grand jury and making it an 8 hour tour on days then go right into working afternoons... (ahem, area south..) . There Gould be a cpd officer or Sgt at the door of grand jury checking officers in and out. When they get to grand jury they sign in.. as they leave the jury room and true bill is announced the Sgt should immediately sign them out as they no longer have a use for them.. I know, I know.. the dics need to go across to the other side for a “meeting” with the state about a “big case”.... for 6 hours.. yeah right. It can be done. Pretty easily. Detectives make tons of OT with terrible Clarence rates.. take the OT away.. it’s not like you can get any more cases suspended. Keep an electronic log of how much OT goes into a specific RD number or case. Then when that case is closed out see how much OT was spent on it and what was the disposition of the case. So a shooting that had 180hrs of OT that was suspended two weeks later with only two progresses and a suspended report means that case was dodged and used to just make money.

I would blame ASA for making notification for everyone that's on paper. They should read the case and see who did what and who needs to be in court. One more thing about Impound Court. Every time I was there I've seen people coming in and saying "I don't know anything about the case, I just filled out the impound form".

OT.. Have not heard any news lately on the good Sgt. RG. Whats the status on him? Has he sobered up and staying away from lower Wacker Drive? Has his incident been swept under the rug cause he's clouted?

He's been assigned to 311 but is still on medical. The question you should be asking is if an audit has been done yet to investigate all the o.t. he's made as an elite tactical tool Sgt the last year or so? You know, just to make sure he hasn't been stealing or anything.....

just park unoccupied squad cars in a high crime area with the emergency lights on, no coppers and engines running. the lt at midway did that for a long time and it kept the terroists away from midway.

Lightfoot wants to stop impounding cars for suspended licenses. 1 car with two POs making $60.6/hr in OT and working 8 hours an RDO costs just under $970. 1 impound makes the city money ($1000-$970). A couple parkers and movers (you can pick which fine amount you wanna tack on) and the city really runs a profit. It's not OT that's the issue, it's how the OT is used.

The DUI guys are renowned for making so much in OT but they actually make the city more money than what they annually gross just by the $2,000 impounds (man, if dum dum is driving near a park or school add another $1,000 and if suspended add another $1,000). Just the $2,000 in 1 DUI impound will cover all the court costs and still leave plenty for the city.

Imagine a DUI unit (not the traffic unit) where Gangs/Tact/Saturation/Summer mobile/etc. can simply give an easy ring to come take the DUI. They currently avoid them like the plague. Just call out your DUI guys. Make use of your assets.

The city gets $25 per impound. The tow yard gets the rest. The city doesn’t own the tow yards.
