Nice Cars!

Rahm and McRahm made an appearance at City Hall.  Guns were talked about and a bunch of unconstitutional ideas were floated around.  But then the pair started talking about the new fleet of vehicles.  The new Ford Explorers built right here at the Torrence Avenue plant:
  • The mayor and superintendent were showing off the first part of their new fleet of police cars: 4-wheel drive Ford Explorer SUVs and Interceptor sedans manufactured at Ford’s rejuvenated Torrence Avenue plant.

    Tony Reinhardt, Ford Motor Company’s regional director of government and community relations, said, “Mayor Emanuel was very involved in expressing his desire for these to be built right here in Chicago, and the good news is that’s where they’re built.”
They sure are pretty. But guess what one of our contacts related from the 51st Street garage?
  • SCC, you're going love this one.....

    The garage took delivery of a bunch of Explorers a while ago and started to install a bunch of Chicago specific features. Computer mounts, rifle racks, etc.  Guess what doesn't work? The computer mounts for starters. Seems that Ford supplied some sort of adapter to plug all the computers into - PDT, ticket writer, camera, GPS. CPD technicians cut the adapters off and rewired it so the mounts don't work.

    And the rifle racks? The garage had to actually cut a rifle out of the rack because once it was locked in place, you couldn't access the rifle. The deputy chief flipped out at this discovery seeing as how he had specifically discounted the use of these racks, but Fleet installed them anyway.

    So don't get used to those new SUVs yet, they're all going back to the shop for repairs. Wonder if this voids any warranties?
The City That Works Can't Get Anything Correct.

Based on what we used since the start of the rifle program all the gun racks came from same company and racks came with key to manually open it. No need to break it open it without power, unless they changed the company ????

How about the fact that the in car camera system is mounted on top of the dashboard center car. What happens in the unfortunate incident of a car crash and that camera system goes flying into a PO's head?

Was there not a huge lawsuit years ago with a radio system installed on the dash passenger side which caused major damage to a PO in a crash?

they have already started being delivered to the districts. I have been using one for the past three days in 008. My rifle fit like it should and the PDT worked fine. Overall I am very happy with it. Smaller than the tahoe but not by much.. lots of leg room, great handling and pretty quick. I approve. Most of all, its comfortable with two people in it.

Just as we predicted!

Ford purpose built these vehicles to prevent the monkeying around that Fleet is doing!

Why?

So stuff would actually work!

But everybody in Fleet, at 35th and 111 North is much smarter than any of the engineers at Ford...

The electric systems in these vehicles is so up & down integrated that YOU CAN"T FUCK WITH IT PUTTING "YOUR" SHIT IN AS AN AFTERMARKET ADD-ON!

Fuck with it?

Void the warranty.

Thus said Ford...

Chicago... Where everybody in charge is smarter than everybody else...

A few years back before I retired, I was in a unit that used covert vehicles daily. We had to bring these vehicles into the garage at 51st street. We did not like this, because we knew that the garage was loaded with patronage, many of whom were sponsored by the 1st ward and who were mob related. Lo and behold !! A list of all of the covert cars and their license plates turned up at the home of a low life . No surprises there. We even caught a streets and san forman who was a crew member driving around out parking lot looking at the cars. No matter who is mayor and who is police superintendent, some things are so ingrained and so deep into this cities culture that I really do not think it will ever be gone. Incompetence on the part of fleet management if just such a thing.

Just a note, the "CPD technicians" that fucked up the new cars are not actually CPD. Several years ago the CPD/EMMD was taken over by "THE DEPARTMENT OF FLEET MANAGEMENT" it was Fleet technicians that fucked up the new cars not CPD technicians. The CPD has NOTHING to do with garages or the personel that work there.

A little bit off topic, buit did Mayor 9.5 and McMadeinChicago know that the Explorer and Taurus are only listed at 60% domestic content? So much for American jobs. In otherwords, the contents of the cars are made here in the US or Canda. To be an "American" car, I believe it has to have at 70% or 75% domestic content.

If they really cared about American jobs, we would still use the Impala (75%), Tahoe(67%), or the Dodge Charger (65%). Even the Toyota Camry (75%) has more domestic content in its construction than the new Fords. Here's a link to the NHTSA website that breaks it all down if anyone is interested...

Sorry this is off topic SCC: What a pleasure it has been for the past 5 days in the 019th District. No yelling, no MFing the troops, no outbursts, no screaming into the radio asking why the wagon is in the station ( turns out on of the wagon guys wanted to wash hisnhands and use the washroom), no berating the Po's on the air and in the station in front of the desk personell.......no micromanaging jobs, no brooding at the desk looking at the sheets trying to find something to yell at the desk Sgt. and PO's for, no roaming around 019 East and 019West looking for little things to make bigs things and then screaming about it....... That's right the XO has been off all week, what a pleasure. However he does come to work on his days off just to keep everyone down.... It's amazing how low morale can get when he shows up...... This is a plea to our Commander, who is a real gentleman and class act: Don't loose the district! It's getting very bad, very close to completely loosing the district because of you bi-polar XO. Please do something now before there's a " Hostile work environment beef"...... Commander your are liked and respected, the complete opposite of what is felt towards the XO. He has the potential to destroy.... destroy morale, destroy activity, destroy any desire to do the job because of his absolute caustic, toxic demeanor. When the XO belittles the Lt.'s the Sgt.'s and the PO's he is thereby creating a division, a division so wide that it will not be able to be crossed...... Save the district, save YOUR District........... We know you inherited him when you got here, BUT, we are powerless.......we have been disrespected and demeaned too much by this individual. If you can't dump him the PLEASE, tall to him and get him under some kind of control. He is an absolutely unhinged out there...... He acts like the commander, and inspector, a WC........ He is the destroyer.......We were told at roll call last week to take ownership of our beats, so be it......Commander please take ownership of your Command, your District.......Good luck.....

YEP , happened years back in 013 with a PPO. 1st night on the street not even 24 hours after graduation. Dude runs light on corner of Damen and Division, slams into squad car, radio comes off holder ( used to be on dash) and slams into eye of PPO who lost his eye. By noo the next day all radios were cutt from the dash- quick simple solution. Bad thing was that it was too late, lawsuit was filed and PPO never came to work ever again.

Why does DOR stars that look like Police stars...

Done intentionally as a "fuck you" to Police at about the same time it sunk in to Daley Inc. that coppers were sitting on their ticket books for obvious reasons. Denying Daley of the multiple millions in extra trick-off money he was used to coppers generating for years...

You see, it's like this... Daley felt he no longer needed to share.

"All for me, none for you..."

We would love to see a side by side comparison of revenue generated by CPD... Say for fiscal years 1989 to 1992 vs. 2009 to 2012...

That's why you see every swinging dick has a ticket book attached to it to "make up the difference" for coppers opting out of the revenue game...

Rahm has all the numbers...
That's why he's running hard at the Police for not generating the revenue he wants us to.

It was never about public safety.

Firstly...there are around 100 ticket writers in the Department of Finance (revenue was merged with finance earlier this year)....and they work in all 50 wards Monday thru Friday. Not "just" the white neighborhoods.

Secondly...who cares what shape the badge is? It doesn't say police on it. It's just a hunk of metal that is issued by the department. Prior to the star design, the shield was a rectangle. I seem to recall that the shape design was changed early on by the former Street Ops Deputy Director that is the niece of Alderman of ward 20.

And as a point, the other enforcement agents (like in city clerk and the building inspectors) also have a Star design for their badge of office. And you're not complaining about them. What happened, you get a Parker from one of them?

I am sick of this guy crying on the blog. Multiple post all day, most of us know it's you.

If you spent half the time working that you do cying on the blog, the XO would probably be giving you back rubs. Shut the fuck up you litle bitch.

Sorry SCC. I couldn't stand it anymore.

HUH? WTF! How about coherent the next time.....

And to the 'lawsuit' poster - Don't know about a lawsuit, but a copper lost an eye in an accident when the microphone cord bounced out of its holder and struck him in the face. Thats why the mic mounts are on the tranny hump. They're 'stop gap' fix was to CUT all the microphones out of every single car.

The extra "Chicago Options" being installed on the new Ford vehicles are not up fit by the Dept. of Fleet. All Emergency Equipment,Gun Locks, and GPS system installation have been farmed out to a few Non-Union Suburban companies. Don't blame the Fleet Mechanics...they are the ones fixing the immigrant non-documented untrained third party F**k ups.

That was in 1998, and it happened to a PPO. He was only a couple of weeks into his training. He lost an eye, and eventually lost the job. He was a nice guy too.

It is my belief that when you are on duty and you threaten to shoot your partner in the head in front of civilian and Police witnesses,you should be stripped and in callback immediately. It should not matter if your husband is the Commander of the 18th District. You are incapable of carrying out your duties by reason of INSANITY!

12/20/2012 06:20:00 AM

Just goes to illustrate that the two tiered discipline system is alive and well on this department. The one tier is for non clouted/ connected : drop the hammer on them. The other is for the clouted/ connected : treat them with kid gloves.
In this particular case this psychos pattern of actions over her brief career lead me to believe that she's a walking time bomb for this department. Eventually the chickens will come home to roost.

We all know here that this is the xo of 019 No there are more than one poster on here because this man is a just a miserable human being, a terrible boss and a drunk. He has a handful of friends and his retirement party could be in a phone booth.If the commander was smart he would have a meeting about all the shit this man hands out but be warned you cant have it in the district its too small. Commander you are well respected but he is a back stabber dont go down with the ship like our last commander,he was well liked and a good boss he just had a xo that was power hungry and would do anything to get control.

They need to start adding those senior citizen vans to our fleet. Since Rahm wants to raise the retirement age and cut our meager pensions nobody will be able to retire anymore.
Instead of gang and tact teams you'll have geriatric teams.
Don't worry about Rahm's retirement though .... he's got about $18 million salted away and he'll get premium healthcare compliments of the taxpayers.

12/20/2012 06:08:00 PM
OH PLEASE, give me a fing break will you ? The retirement age was 57 for decades and the department got along very well. You really think that someone who is in their early 50s cannot do this job? 50 is way too young to retire.

Are you serious? Someone tell me, is he serious? Do you live in an 80's high school movie? Did you think you were going to be carried across the football field after scoring a touchdown? Open your eyes. Do you think people got this job with the intent to do nothing? Its not the public that burns you out, its the lack of professionalism and stupidity amongst our own. You seem like part of the problem. Maybe you (and others) dont know what professionalism means. It means NOT talking about co-workers, not being arrogant, not being obnoxious, and being respectful. Think about a navy seal. Would he be arrogant to a co-worker? Would he be impressed with you? This is what happens when a man is given authority with an associates degree in basket weaving and drinking it up at the frat house every night. Small minds have always the loudest voice.

OT - A message to the arrogant jerk who works in 016 Initials-P.D.

Your unprofesional and discourteous service is an embarrassment to anyone who serves and protects. Just because you've been taken care of majority of your career doesn't make you anything special. Lose the condescending attitude!

Totally agree guy is a total stroke.. He sits on a stop sign by his house and write his neighbors for not stopping at stop signs... He still wheres his name tag from harriaon district when he spent 1 year in 011.

12/20/2012 11:00:00 AM

Then stop at stop signs. Problem solved. You won't have to talk to him.

AGREED!!!!!!!

If I ever get dumped I'm gonna ask to work in 022 and write every asshole housewife and teenager who thinks their 6 degrees of cop separation allows them to fly trough stop signs.

Worse than shitheads. Show some respect before you bitch and demand a play.

HR is working with test makers. New sgt test will be two parts, only top 750 scorers on part one will be able to take part two. This will make lists smaller and cut costs for part 2. Part one will be formated like part two of previous exams. part two will be all scenarios and essay responses.

Does that mean that all merit promotions have to come from the top 750?? And will they even have to stick around for part 2??

You are so right about that one. He only has six friends out of about 400 in the district and we all know who the six are. Its crazy that someone making 108,000 a year walks around the station to see who stops in to use the washroom or what time we take our lunch. He has no supervisory or people skills. Its way past the point of giving a shit anymore. He is a disgrace to all the good white shirts we have.

Yes, it's true. keep saying he was a "working copper" and rewards police work. what a load of shit.

To the person who is so concerned about 50 years old being to young to retire. How about we make it 30 years and retire, no age requirement. Not 20 and 55 years old, with FREE health care. Bet you don't agree with that. I rest my case. Now go get a contact card nitwit.

Please bite your fucking tongue and die of infection from talking so much shit!

Are you Rahm's ass-wiper or something?

20, 30, 40+ years of active policing HURTS pretty damn bad eventually.

Policing IS a YOUNG MAN'S GAME!

Or are you one of the idiots who desperately wants to see 70 year olds tussling with Yung Bukk so you'll feel like you've gotten your "money's worth?"
