CPD Gets a "F" in Traffic Crash Reports - Chicago police crash reports are full of errors, study finds

It's not uncommon for judges to dismiss tickets against drivers on the grounds that the citations contain major errors, like misidentifying the street where an alleged traffic violation occurred, because the mistakes call into question the police officer's accuracy in providing other information on the ticket.

While such blunders can simply be a lucky break for the driver if no one else is involved, the consequences of police documentation errors on public safety are potentially huge when crashes occur and people are hurt or killed, experts say.

This shortcoming has unfortunately been the case in Chicago for a long time, according to research that City Hall solicited, then tried to keep from the public.

Traffic enforcement is a tiny part of a CPD officer's job. This is not Hinsdale, and we are not traffic nazis.

Smear tactics before contract negotations.

The "Too Much College, Not Enough High School" Hair Gels strike yet again.

It's quite obvious a good number of crack babies have infiltrated your profession thanks to the dumbing-down of hiring standards in addition to the entitlement generation of Caucasian officers that migrated to the city and never left.

Thank God I don't have to deal with this on CFD.

Yeah, it's the police's fault again.

For example, Archer Ave. near Central (across from Shop and Save) in Garfield Ridge. The traffic lane suddenly turns into a parking lane and then back to a traffic lane when they repaved Archer and remarked it.

Fine work Department of Transportation. I hope who ever strikes those parked cars sues the city and state.

CPD no longer protects the common Middle-Class Taxpaying City Residents. All they care about is the Negro Homicide rate, nothing else crime-wise, ALL Liberal Political pandering, as usual. Reckless, negligent, stoned, uninsured, illegal drivers everywhere endangering us and our families, and NOTHING being done about it. Cops have little or no time for protecting us anymore, due to the savages being allowed to run Wild, so the DEMOCRAT Party doesn't offend them, so they keep voting DEMOCRAT-SOCIALIST Handout/Entitlement freebies, paid for with OUR Tax Dollars. Vote out ALL the Do Nothing for the Middle-Class except tax us to death DEMOCRAT Politicians, whenever and wherever possible. Think Tax revolt by Whitey, they can't imprison 2/3rd's of the Nation.

What about those 200 chit heads that just started last month with more seniority than you and will be retired before you can?


Aldo! You got your head so far up your ASS you need to open your mouth to see if you can safely cross the street?

Why do you think traffic court associate judges have threaded butt plugs?

Why do you think they keep the officers until after they let all of the "defendants go not guilty?

So the combined suction won't cause the building to implode !

You would think these super human judges could see their obsolescence coming with ours.
