Once again fuck Crook County and all of its political hacks. A Crooked County filled with patronage workers on the public payroll. The more connected you are the higher position you have on the public payroll. The uneducated and undereducated idiots who continuously vote the same hacks into office are just unbelievable. I guess you get what you deserve. Our department is a prime example of this. Show me anyone outside of this agency that really believes we are not a joke of a department. We are a laughing stock to other departments right up there with Stone Park and Harvey. Oh yeah, and if you are in a specialty unit (Gangs, Hidta, etc.) you are even a bigger joke. You may think how important you are and how invaluable you are but you should hear what others really have to say about your talents or lack there of. Been there done that.

Spoken like a true jagoff!! Lucky for those of us who have pride in our work (yes there are many who do) we don't give a shit what anyone else thinks, we gave that up in grade school! Go to work and do your job, that's all that counts! Worrying about the political hacks gets you nowhere.

I hate to admit it but most of the people I thought were whiny bitches are right. Sadly we are a joke to the law enforcement community. Incompetence rules the p.d. d.o.c. and courts. Typical scenario last week. I heard warrants all got reassigned to days because their steward made a relevant grievance. Regardless of where you go in this department its always the same story, if you stand up for yourself your punished. If you mention how brass heavy this department is your black listed as a trouble maker. Please someone with proof, GO TO THE MEDIA!!!!!!! Send lists of the current staff making $100k + a year in do nothing spots. If I had any evidence I would but I don't. Also, whom ever the judge is that said the sheriff Is in contempt for the eviction debacle have him arrested.

Go to the home page of the County Guy and scroll down on the right margin and look for the Crook County Sheriff budget and click on it then print it up and hand deliver it to your media mouth piece.

You are about as fucking stupid as that idiotic statement you just made. Many of our units blow away (man for man) the productivity of any other department. Maybe where you are from there are a lot of fuckiups, yourself included for making that uninformed uneducated statement but what I have seen and experienced we are just as good if not better than most departments. Instead of being a bitter jagoff and going with the flow on the blog look at the facts before you jump on the bandwagon with every other asshole on here.
And by the way if it is so fucked up then your dumbass has something to do with it since you are employed here.

I hear its not in writing but only 1st and 3rd watch have the quota. They say codes dont count as activity. Only paper jobs and tickets count. If you dont turn anything in you have to write a memo explaining why you cant do anything for your 10 hour shift.

Has anyone contacted the union about this?

Why isn't this in writing?

Cook County Board President Preckwinkle and Cook County Sheriff Dart discuss 2011 budget on Chicago Tonight

There’s no denying that taking the unincorporated areas off the county’s responsibility would offer Cook County substantial savings, especially in law enforcement.

According to Steve Patterson, spokesman for Sheriff Tom Dart, at any given time the county has 40 officers patrolling unincorporated suburban neighborhoods from the Northbrook area to the vicinity of South Chicago Heights. The 170 officers it takes to fill three shifts a day, 365 days a year, get paid an estimated $13 million. That cost that could be reduced — or the officers could be reassigned — if the obligation to patrol unincorporated areas ended.

“I don’t have a burning passion where I need to be the police chief of all these unincorporated areas,” Dart said. “It’s the most inefficient form of policing you’re going to find.”

Well there you go all you ass kissing mother fuckers. TD just sold the PD down the river. read the article. If the unincorporated areas are all annexed what the fuck do you need the PD for. Those ares are the only reason we exist. So we went from taking over the Forest Preserves to US being taken over by the towns. Meanwhile, keep writing those tickets so TD will be happy. FUCK THIS PLACE. should have gone to a suburban PD when I had the chance, now it's too late.

Well, all of the Tommy Dart supporters from the police department, kiss your cushy police jobs goodbye. You are now on borrowed time. It's good to know that some of the highly qualified commanders and chiefs can take their expertise elsewhere. Dwyer, White, Flyke and others will need to go other places to share their wisdom.

I'm sure Tommy will take care of them all, not!

Good luck to all the good guys & girls.

First of all,for those of you that had any dought that this Sheriff is an ASS I hope you now see the light.

Now,lets understand this.The towns would take the Police function over for the unincorporated areas.These are the areas that the towns didn't want or the residence dont want incorporated because their property taxes would double.

So these towns would have to be compensated by the county for doing this because they are laying Police off and have budget problems of their own. So does'nt this defeat the purpose?

Now I'm sure that some of these Villages will look at the cash cow County to save their peoples jobs but I still think that the majority of homeowners as well as villages will oppose this.Especially on the South end where these towns are broke and ready to close their Depts down.

This Preckwinkle has no clue what she is talking about.All she does is play to the media and voters about how much she can cut.And unfortunatly their all buying the B.S.

The time has come for a county wide bid. This is the opportunity you have been waiting for! If they are opening any slots then they should open them all and do a county wide bid. Then the people with more seniority can bid into the facilities that they want and won't be stuck where they are. Seniority means something! Push for a county wide bid and push out the chinaman mentality that is rampant in the sheriff's department.

It will just help your lawsuit out even more and can personally sue the bagpipe and fluffer when someone gets hurt. You think they care about us. If fluffer gave a fckk he would of get rid of the fat on top and saved officers jobs. We are dangerously shortstaffed and they dont care. They will care when we sue ther ass-guarantee.

Those morons live in a bubble. They work at the daley center so they think they are the only ones with problems. Almost every facility is short. So now they are going to fix one problem while creating another. That connonly needs to get out the bubble at the daley center and start making visits to other facilities. In almost 5 years i have not seen him one time. The only way i might recognize him if he was wearing his bagpiper kilt over his gold badge. I have never seen the man! I have talked to many other deputies who have heard the term bagpiper or manhands but would have no clue who they were if they walked up and said hello. At least beavers and kinnane made the rounds once in a while. They even asked people about their concerns. Manhands and bagpier could be made up fictional circus characters for all we know.

Cause he can an its another way to mess with peoples lives. Your right, its not going to accomplish anything execpt it might save a little overtime. The chiefs buildings he cuts even more, will be intiminated not to give any overtime no matter how dangerously short we are. Than manhands and bagpiper can gloat to fluffer all the ot they are saving. But when something happens fluffer will throw them under the bus just like the 26th st incident. Then manhands and bagpipe will blame the chiefs they are telling to give no ot.

Right as if we make up the intake procedures as we go. The rules are set into place by the administration and we follow them. If we are not doing something the way we are supposed to than you have a way to resolve that. However keep in mind that the ONLY and I mean ONLY thing that we have to do for your arrest is to take the compliant property and fingerprint. We don’t have to pull a cr for you or i-clear or call your sergeant to get an approval. So there is no need for us to jump to attention just because you come into the lock up. Once you get your shit together let us know and than we will do what we have to do. What we were doing before or after you came to the lock up is none of your business. You don’t see us complaining about you guys chillin at gas city or 7-11 do you ?

Any time he didn't get what he wanted he would call mama dicaro in tears untill she made a phone call for him. And the little bitch always got what he wanted. But now he has the power and doens't care about fucking with other peoples lives. Even when lt. samp fucked with him he called up mama dicaro crying. That little bitch was taken care of his entire career. sheriffs moves sgt brigeview, sheriffs moves lt. promoted to chief. But now the little napolean bitch is in charge and it's fuck everyone else. Just remember, darts not going to be in ther forever, so you may be getting that lt's shirt pressed sooner than you might imagine. And calling mama dicaro won't help you this time.

And another fccking thing how has that lil bitch not been demoted yet. He gets suspended for wrongdoing and keeps his spot running the dept. Great example you have set dart.

February 12, 2011 11:11 AM

your wrong. Preckwinkle is seeking legislation to donate all unincorporated areas to the nearest suburb. She wants to privatize every thing. On any given time 40 sheriffs patrols are on the street along with 8 forest preserve police county wide. WE are going to eventually eliminate the patrol deputies and are trying to get out of Ford Heights legally. Already decided the sheriff police academy will be replaced by Moraine or Triton pay as you go. Forest Preserve Police mite be safe but look for privatization eventually in court services and through out the sheriffs police. We will give up homeland security funds and taxes to get out of the law enforcement business. Court houses and court lock ups to be closed by six pm no more weekends. She is getting this advice from her liberal friends at the University of Chicago private police force. Say good by to cook county law enforcement in the next four to ten years.

Mary Laraia holds the title of “Executive Assistant to the Superintendent” of the Cook County Forest Preserve. She currently makes $111,000 annually, but the Sun-Times reports Board President Toni Preckwinkle would like Commissioner’s to approve a 39 percent salary increase.
The general superintendent said Laraia’s duties are expanding, including a title change to “Deputy Superintendent”, and that is one of the reasons he said she deserves a raise.
Campaign finance reports show that Laraia contributed $2,500 to Preckwinkle’s recent campaign. The Preckwinkle said she’s not excluding contributors, and that Laraia is “a very smart and intelligent person.”

Oh could you imagine if the golden child connelly was treated the way he shits all over people. I am for senority, but it's not right to just move people around when ever they feel like it. The fact is the daley center is no worse off than any other building. Some of those people from the last classes have already been moved 3 or four times. And to all the idiots with senority who are too stupid to realize that this is going to affect everyone. If you don't work at skokie or the daley center the working environment is going to worsen. It really is a miracle that something hasn't happened yet. The inmates could take over at any time, and they know it. I have seen one deputy at times, transporting 25-35 uncuffed male prisoners. You don't think they could break that deputies neck if they wanted too. This place is a ticking time bom* We are already down 400 deputies spots that will not be filled. And dart has the nerve to give his people raises and hire four chiefs of staff.

ANYONE OUT KNOW IF THERE IS ANY TRUTH TO THE RUMOR THAT THE CHIEF IN SKOKIE WAS ONE OF THE ONLY CHIEFS TO KEEP THE HEAT ON FOR HIS DEPUTIES TO GET MORE HELP AT THOSE ACCOUNTABILITY MEETINGS. I'M TOLD MOST ALL THE OTHER CHIEFS WERE TOO BUSY BUTT-KISSING SAYING THAT, "EVERYTHING IS RUNNING JUST FINE SHERIFF", "NO PROBLEMS OUT HERE", "WE'RE DOING JUST FINE SHERIFF".

And another fccking thing how has that lil bitch not been demoted yet. He gets suspended for wrongdoing and keeps his spot running the dept. Great example you have set dart.

Good point! why is he still running our department. Does OPR have two sets of standards for those who are close with dart, and those who are not.

Let me break this down for you if you're a little slow. 30 odd inmates wouldn't do that shit in the jail. Its a secure place. A courthouse is not. So a few of those facing lenghty sentencing could decide to make an exit because offing the Deputy is a small step before bypassing the minimal security at a couthouse that is already short staffed. Much better odds of making it out make it more likely that if inmates were to kill someone it would be in the courts.

Why would jackson and connelly make the rounds to talk to people. Why would they want to talk to the little smelly people. The only time i have ever seen the connoley is when he irrogantly told us at roll call that he hand picks people for LE training and if you dont like it too bad.

Everyone please calm down... Step away from the edge, the sky is not falling. If you look closely at the bids no one is getting screwed. 1st look at the numbers 27 lowest senior deputies will be place at those locations unless someone with more seniority wants those 27 spots.
Same thing happens when a new academy class come in except there's not a new class... You remember you spent a year at a location after your probation you have to bid ... Then cause you're low man, you get shit assignment
Then I'm assuming ( i know dont do this in the county) those spots that they were bumped from will then go up for bid at a later date allowing people with seniority to finally get a chance to get those spots..it's done in phases, I know we only need a high school education but read the fucking thing before crying... It just may be a good thing for people with some years on

MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker says the Wisconsin National Guard is prepared to respond wherever is necessary in the wake of his announcement that he wants to take away nearly all collective bargaining rights from state employees.

Walker said Friday that he hasn't called the Guard into action, but he has briefed them and other state agencies in preparation of any problems that could result in a disruption of state services, like staffing at prisons.

Walker says he has every confidence that state employees will continue to show up for work and do their jobs and he's not anticipating any problems.

His plan would require higher pension and health insurance contributions and remove bargaining rights except in a limited way over wages.

Sheriff Tom Dart, our leader, said:

“I don’t have a burning passion where I need to be the police chief of all these unincorporated areas,” Dart said. “It’s the most inefficient form of policing you’re going to find.”
________

What do you "have a passion for" Tom? If you dont want to be here then resign, quit, call Obama and get a federal job. Leave the "passion to police unincorporated areas" to a professional police officer, not a washed up former Assistant States Attorney.

What exactly did Tom Dart think the job of Cook County Sheriff entailed? I think we all know the answer to this question. It is the reason that our Department is in such poor shape. It is the reason that we are all under attack by the Preckwinkle administration and the Cook County Board.

Tom Dart never wanted to be Cook County Sheriff, he needed a job and an elected position to serve as a stepping stone to be Mayor of the City of Chicago. But Tom has made many political enemies in the last few years. Rahm Emmanual harpooned his grand plan and Toni Preckwinkle is publicly calling him out. Now those of us that have made this Department a career are left to this disfunctional administration.

Sheriff Dart, do us all a favor and figure out what you have "a passion for". If you dont want to be here, quit! If you do want to be here...PLEASE start putting a plan for the future together! We need leadership, we need a plan for the future. Either get it together or get out.

Bloggers save your comments about how the police are doomed, the courts are closing and the name calling. This is a serious matter, WE, all the sworn members of this Department are in jeopardy.

Positive suggestions for the future are welcome!

Let me first say that i am all for senority but i am also for fairness. I was in the last class and this is the third time i will be moved. The sixth time if you count intra building moving from shift to shift. Its not my fault that they don't have a clue downtown and can't get it right the first few times. If they were so short at the daley center, they should of taken the last class and put them all there. Jackson and connelly were so incompetent that it took them 6 times to rebid my facility until they got it right. Im sure i will end up at the daley center. which is fine, but when they realize they messed up again, will they move me for the fourth time. If connelly or jackson have been treated the way i have been treated they would be shouting from the rooftop. And from what i read on this blog they have been given mutiple sheriffs moves in their careers and been promoted, and put wherever they want to go. I don't have a mama dicaro to call and cry too. So in the mean time i will try to make plans with my family to start my new shift at the daley center. Thats untill they decide to move me again. Perhaps this time they will get it right.

Anonymous said...

The thing that pisses me off about connell* is he was the biggest cry baby bitch out of anyone in this dept. Any time he didn't get what he wanted he would call mama dicaro in tears untill she made a phone call for him.

Hey kevin since you cried until you got what you wanted your whole career, can u give me mamas phone number. I heard when you made sgt with less than 3 years on the job, you cried to mama Dic untill the put you at bridgeview. But now your in charge, you want everything to be fair!! Have you found religion?? Same with jackson. Have you ever had to bid for anything. Or just like kevin, everthing you wanted was a phone call away.

Anonymous said...

This pill would be a lot easier to swallow, if the order was coming from someone other than jackson and connelly. If it was someone, who actually worked for their positions, and had to bid at like everyone else it wouldn't bother me. But when the order is from two silver spoon golden children who never had to work for anything its hard to take. And they have the nerve to call us crybabies! Have you two ever earned anthing in this dept without making a phone call?? Yeah thats what i thought!

To be fair to chief deputy bagpipe. I hear he had to wait 2full days before mama got the phone call in and moved him to bridgeview. So dont try to say he got everything he wanted right away!!

. And a little note to dana, kevin, and kelly. Remember that last class was heavier than whale shit. You people just keep making more enemies everyday. You really think dart is going to be around forever?? You better hope so. And you three have never had to work for anything. Dana moved up like a rocketship. Just remember , J Ryan, M.walsh, M.dicaro, all thought they were bulletproof. Just keep making more enemies and when dart leaves you will find out if how bulletproof you are. And when your day comes dont get bitter like samp and knapp. Its not good for your health..

I love how K.C. and K.J. call us crybabies! Who the FUCK are they. They both walk around acting like they have a clue about law enforcement. If you've ever had to deal with them concerning something law enforcement related you would understand that not only the fact that they have zero idea of what there saying or doing! There so afraid of doing something wrong with the old we better cover our asses attitude all the while stroking of the bad guy and shitting on the Officer. Heres my other thought. Our G.O. states that as a court services Officer they are not allowed to insite a investigation for any crime. BUT and it's a big BUT, C.I.U. does it all the time? The last time I checked they follow the same G.O. and there certified the same as courts Officers. So please tell me Mr. and Misses We follow the G.O. "all the time" how it's okay for C.I.U. to investigate and courts can't (including the L.E. cert guys)and by the way one of the C.I.U pimps was in the last class ran for the County. I'm willing to bet my life that Officer won't be transfered to the Daley Center. But some cloutless Dep. will be with more senority cause that person has no phone call.

Preckwinkle is seeking legislation to donate all unincorporated areas to the nearest suburb.
Already decided the sheriff police academy will be replaced by Moraine or Triton pay as you go.
Court houses and court lock ups to be closed by six pm no more weekends.
Eliminate the Forest Preserve Police.
Privatize Court Security.
No Court Services academy in years. (There won’t be anymore either)

What’s left for law enforcement in Cook County?
The only Department in the sheriff’s office still actively hiring.

All you police haters have us out on the street. Hoping for police layoffs and quoting rumors about Preckwinkles plans. I have a little eye opener for you, before any police officer is lost we will be serving child support warrants, we will be conducting criminal investigations in courts, we will be patrolling courthouse parking lots.

Be careful what you wish for..you will be in the jail counting inmates and rattling keys. We will be doing your specialty CO to PO jobs.

Gee, if KC and company do and did so much for everyone how did they lose fan favor and incite the angry mob? If they have so much balls why didn't they stand up to Dart when those Deputies were attacked at CCB? Laying off sworn officers has never been a goal or go-to option for Dart. Its not that he's so benevolent. Its just not practical. Dart is a lot of bad things but stupid isn't one of them. He knows that we're operating way under capacity. Really, if we've got our collective critique of kj, kc and dw wrong you need to clue us in. Don't just brush us off as jealous of their success. Tell us of all the great things they've done and are doing on our behalf.

I have a few eye openers for you pal.

I don't want you or anyone to lose your jobs.

BUT

If CCSPD were to shut down you wouldn't have a single thing to do with the courts. We have this little thing called a collective bargaining agreement. You're not a member of our union and if you were at some point your leave of absence is long expired.

Just as I cannot permanently take a job specifically budgeted for your union members you can't take mine.

I'm going to the jail you say? Only in the event of an emergency can I be assigned there involuntarily and never on a permanent basis. You see, if my bargained position isn't eliminated I can't be forced into another one. Neither can you. That is, unless your job were eliminated. Then they can send you wherever you'll agree to go at lowest seniority. If you end up un the courts it'll be "HEAR YE, HEAR YE" for you smart guy.

All Rise.

We have a collective bargaining agreement too! Our collective bargaining agreement says that you cant do our jobs either. The department cant get rid of police officers and allow non police department personnel to perform police functions. There is a grievance on file about Court Service Personnel performing functions of the police department.

I dont want to get into a Police vs Courts issue. We are all law enforcement, but for the last several months many court service members have aggressively called for layoffs in the police department. Jealous haters relishing in the thought of other department members losing their jobs. I dont want to see any layoffs anywhere in this Department.

Like the poster said, before any police officer is laid off we will be performing police functions like serving criminal arrest warrants, conducting criminal investigations and providing police service in Cook County courthouses.

Dear Members of Court Services,

Please remove the shit from your eyes.

I have been reading the blog. Some opinions related to your comments are found below.

1. TD eliminated patronage from the department?

True: He Hires many "Shackman Exempt employees"

False: Promotions may still be clouted up.

2. K C runs to mama Di for everything?

True: Previous to being anointed.

False: He might be the most Serious candidate for the lead precipitant to the demise of Mar Mar.

3. KJ Never worked a real day in her career.

FALSE: At one time KJ was a hard charging stand up Deputy and Boss.

True: That time may have disappeared with her uniform.

4. KC KJ and DW saved our Jobs.

OUTRIGHT FUCKING LIE

I CALL TOTAL BULLSHIT.

Unfortunately for the working ranks people like the individuals listed above have very little authority over budget, and appropriation. Basically they can only fuck you (ie: redistribution of manpower) they cant help you to avoid being laid off.

5. Court Service Deputies are a Bunch of Cry Babies.

False: The worlds toughest
human being would sob in frustration if he/she was subject to the atrocious treatment Deputies endure daily.

True: Deputy Sheriff's in general TOTALLY SUCK at STICKING TOGETHER. Playing right into the bosses hands.
(ie. Complaining about why some assignments were eliminated in favor of increases to others.)

The supervision in this department is going to do whatever is necessary to promote their agenda.
