Newest Rumor

A sergeant class is rumored to begin on the 24th or 31st of October. There are currently 100+ openings available, so figure an even hundred at this point. No word yet on if/how long the "detective familiarization" portion of training might be. We've heard both yes AND no. We've already stated our opinion and the opinions of others regarding the man hours burned up on 90 days of "familiarization" would be. We talked to a detective lieutenant who said that "we could teach them everything they need to know in 2 or 3 weeks tops," but the city will do what the city wants to do.

HOWEVER, it was brought to our attention that unless the Sergeants are accounted for (sworn in) by 16 December 2005, the city could stand to lose out on sizable Federal grant monies for the 2006 calendar year. Unless (heaven forbid) the city would LIE to the Federal government regarding their actual numbers to secure the funds? They wouldn't do that, would they? Calling Peter Fitzgerald! Calling Noelle Brennan! Calling Frank and Fran! This could use some investigating, eh?

Hey mates,

Thank you for your hospitality that you extended to me on my holiday in the states. I understand you have a horrific winter in Chicago. Escape to Australia for our summer in January and February. Just check in at the local constabulary and we'll show you around.

While I love your country, we don't have to tolerate this "political correctness" nonsense. Come Down Under. We'll hoist a few pints and have a good old time.

G,day, mates!

I love when people post things they know nothing about! There will be a class of 58 sergeants. POSSIBLY 50 more in late December. This will be the last round of tests for promotion to sergeant and Lieutenant. Future promotions will be based on the process currently in use for Captain promotions. The entire process can be done in less than 6 weeks at a fraction of the cost of "tests". Diversity is then easier to accomplish.

To: 09:24.....
Technically, 2 years in grade as a Lt. and a 4 year degree; in actuality, clout, i.e., a phone call, sponsorship either from within or without the Dept., etc.
If that system is favored, then extending it to Sgt.'s and Lt.'s almost across the board is wonderful; if not, then it signals the death of any vestige of non-political promotions, i.e., taking and passing a promotional examination. One might argue (just a thought) that the corrosive and corruptive influences of politics (racial, gender, Democratic party, friendship, family, etc.) has finally infected (or is about to) the Department across the board. Chicago city government is widely viewed as the most corrupt over time than any in the country, and it looks like the CPD is another agency about to get in line. Hey, at least we're no. 1 in something.....

Thats great!!!! That should please 9:42. Or maybe they could have a special class to promote him and all the crybaby "bad test takers" who claim to be supercops. The only requirements will be to have a g.e.d. or a diploma from Kelly H.S. class of '68, be borderline retarded, own a wheel-gun, love to bitch, and prononuce "these, them and those" as "dees, dem and does over by deer".

In addition, I have led the department in arrest activity for the past twent..no,no, thirty years! In addition, I was Kennedy's driver the day he got shot and Neil Armstrong knew I was in the bathroom when he threw on a spacesuit and scurried down the ladder ahead of me when we landed on the moon!

Since the post started with Sgt's promotions, let's start: 1st rumor: don't know how many will get promoted, but latest story is that there will be no "detective familiarization", i.e., just academy and then out to the field.
Now, how about this scenario? in light of the fact that small groups of sgt's and lt's have been going to the academy to partake in
surveys re: job requirements, upcoming tests for sgt's and lt's seem all but assured in the near future. But how about this: the city gives a test, scores it so low that almost all "pass" (also called a gateway process); everyone who passes is given a "pass" (as opposed to a fail), result, no one is ranked. Then, the city continues to promote based on what they call "merit" (i.e., enough time in grade, sufficient college credit), the rest you can figure out. The city insulates itself from lawsuits (I mean, how can you sue when you "passed", you just weren't chosen). City Hall guarantees diversity in advance; the city, and the CPD sacrifice integrity, professionalism, competence, knowledge, and experience to the gods of diversity and expedience on the altar of political correctness. King Richie's takeover of the CPD is finally complete. In retrospect, the late columnist Mike Royko, when writing about Chicago politicians and political corruption, coined a Latin phrase which seems more appropriate now than ever: "Ubi est meus", translated to "where's mine?". I suggest that "Ubi est meus" be inscribed on all city vehicles, including fire trucks, streets and san trucks, and CPD squad cars (instead of "together we can", which seems hopelessly outdated)............

I HAVE HEARD FOR ABOUT 5 YRS NOW THAT THE CITY WANTS TO MAKE PROMOTIONS TO SGT. LT. LIKE THAT OF CAPT. JUST AN APPLICATION, RESUME, WRITTEN SNYOPSIS OF SOME THEORETICAL POLICE SCENARIO AND SOME REFERENCES AND AN INTERVIEW PROCESS. TAKE THIS ALONG W/ THAT 4-6 WK COURSE EXECUTIVE SGT.S TRAINING WHERE U NEED AN EXEMPT TO RECOMMEND U. TAKE THE CLASS AND THE CITY WILL SAY THAT THEY ARE BETTER ABLE TO IDENTIFY THOSE CANDIDATES THRU THIS COURSE THATY POSSESS THE LEADERSHIP SKILLS AND ABILLITY TO PROBLEM SOLVE RATHER THAN A WRITTEN TEST... PROGRESS THEY CALL IT????

Why do we need all these Supervisors anyway? There are more Chiefs than Indians . All they do is go to meetings and come up with a new "brain fart" that enevitably turns out to be even stupider than the previous ones.
Or they just hang around and drool over the young good looking coppettes, do special favors for them in hopes of getting some someday, then go home to their wives and kids and tell them they really fought crime today. Most of them would have to read the instruction manual that comes with handcuffs to figure out how to work them. And then of course theres always our true fearless leader, Ritchie the chicken-hearted, hater of CPD cops cause when he was younger [and still now], was too short and dumb to become one..
