    Wow! That is ridiculous! What on earth would possess a Corrections Officer to blatantly put themselves and others at risk acting outside the scope of their job duties?? No one would catch me doing that. Those t.v.shows are fake and not accurate at all. First they need to be able to swear every other word. Hahaha.

    One afternoon, while working, we hear a siren and here comes a car down 87th St. followed by an unmarked Chevy, complete with flashing headlights and blue/red rear window lights chasing this car. We get in it and the car goes all over my old neighborhood until the chased veh. tries to make an alley and hits a garage. Guy and gal in the car are put in cuffs and my partner and I ask, "What Dept. are you with?" to the guy in the Chevy. He says "County." Well, what's up with this? "I was chasing them for shoplifting, Thanks," as he starts to get in his unmarked Chevy. "Whoa, hold the phone, where are you going?" "Oh, I'm off duty, working at a grocery store. This is my personal car." Sorry, Charlie, this is your mess you started. He wasn't handing this clusterFck to us. We took our cuffs off the "offenders" and left. Have a beat car and your bosses figure this crap out.

    These are the Correction guys that some coppers have a problem with. When they think it's like TV Police with all the car chases and shootouts and then hand it to the Police with a "Book 'em, Danno."

    What I never understood is the animosity between CC Corrections and CCSPD, since they worked the jail before their phone call came through to make them CCSPD. Almost like some of them want to show everyone "Look at me, I have way more clout than you do."

If a Corrections Officer was say around 40 yrs old, where might he apply to go to the road? Given I have aged out of most municipalities. Some solid suggestions on where to consider would be appreciated. Sheriff's Offices? Different states? I don't have political connections or anything either. But if someone out there does, hook a Jailer up! Lol
    IL State Police allows people 40+ to apply if you meet these other requirements listed on their website:

    [QUOTE=Jailcop39;3130099]jeffIL,

    I am not worried about a thing. A person can call me whatever they want in regards to this, I'm called much worse almost on a daily basis by those whom I "guard" as you would say. It's only conversation. You say "it is what it is" do you know what it is? I appreciate the brief counseling session on what to worry about and what not to worry about though. Are you going to send me a bill?[/QUOTE
    Apparently you ARE worried about it since you created this lengthy post about it.

    The comment about all CO's working the street was a joke. I know some couldn't work the street cause they would be handing out street justice on a regular basis.

    Also I've had Chicago guys make comments about real police while we were assisting on calls. And Chicago units give attitudes while in their district looking for offenders.
    If Chicago Police make that comment it is usually in the context where someone from County wants Chicago to do something that the Chicago Police think the county should be doing. I know that they do not like handling things like arrests for county when they think they should just do it themselves. It is as if, hey if you were the real police you wouldn't need me to process this for you.

    I have had county assist us before and it was appreciated. I suppose it's whether or not the Chicago people think that you are just sticking your nose into something or whether your assistance is truly needed like it was in my case.

    Some people are just strokes, you can't help that.

    They know nothing about policing but yet they know everything about jailing and policing.

    When I was there yes. I don't know if it changed.

    I have noticed something though, most notably in Cook County. I have seen so many Cook County COs driving in their personal cars or going into businesses in their full uniform without wearing a jersey or jacket to cover their shirt/patches. I think this is stupid and extremely dangerous for any CO or Patrol Officer to do.
    I've even had a few calls on duty where a CO was involved in something (road rage, disturbance whatever) where both stories on each side differ and then we are stuck in the middle or possibly face the accusation of siding with the CO simply bc they are a CO or the ever famous complaint of "the thin blue sticking together and covering up for eachother" line.

    I have had some officers in intake give me a little attitude sometimes when there is a small error with paperwork or there is a paper missing, but it doesn't really bother me...I'm sure it gets frustrating when you see the same errors come in from road guys one after the other and afterall, what's needed seems to change so often and there's differences on what you need pending on what day of the week and which location you're transporting the person to that it's hard to keep it all straight. Luckily I don't have to worry much about doing transports anymore.
