Our New Contract
City wins arbitration over police pay raise - 4/16/10 - Chicago News - abc7chicago.com
We have been working without a contract with the city since 06/2007 and this is what we get for it. When times were hard the Aldermen in this city voted themselves a 6% raise and when Chicago made its bid for the Olympics there was plenty of $$ laying around. First responders get 10% over five years, we got shafted BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!" The hardest thing about disarming an armed suspect is not slipping on your own shit "

I don't know how anyone can be a cop in Chicago. The entire city does nothing but shit on your guys constantly. Nobody gives a crap about cops there. I'd love to see you all just quit and leave and see where that gets that shit hole city.
I read http://secondcitycop.blogspot.com/ and I'm constantly amazed at what you have to put up with.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.
That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

I amazes me that there is always money for "social programs" and feel-good, Kumbya crap, but there isn't any for us. Personally, I haven't had a raise in 3 years and have to take 8 "furlough" days a year. Go figure.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

That sucks,,, I can feel your pain as we haven't had a raise in two years and we won't see one this year either.To be a good Law Enforcement Officer you MUST know the law!

I can understand wanting to get more for what we do, as we do deserve more, but can't we just be happy that we have a job doing what we love. Be happy that we are not walking the enemployment line.
I'm willing to bet that most sworn officer here wouldn't do my job for the amount I get paid to do it for.
I have always been told that I won't get wealthy doing this job, guess what, it's true.Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!
