CPD's New General Order regarding Social Media Websites (FaceBook, YouTube, Twitter) ...King Garry Has Spoken!


Chicago Police Department
General Order G09-01-06
Use of Social Media Outlets

Issue Date: 09 March 2012

Effective Date: 09 March 2012

Rescinds: None

Index Category: Professionalism

I. Purpose

This directive establishes guidelines and responsibilities of Department members using social media outlets.

II. Scope

For the purposes of this directive, the term "social media outlets" means any electronic communication (such as personal Web sites and outlets for social networking and microblogging) through which participants utilize online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content through an electronic format. These formats include, but are not limited to, text, video, photographs, audio, digital documents, etc.

This directive addresses the full breadth and scope of social media rather than any one particular format. The Department recognizes that as technology advances, new methods for social media participation will emerge.

III. Policy

Social media outlets, when used in a proper manner, can reinforce the Department's relationship with the public, build community support, and assist in solving crime. Department members have a constitutional right to express their views under the First Amendment. However, Department members may be subject to discipline for violating the provisions of this directive. Any social media participation made pursuant to a Department member's official duties is not considered protected speech under the First Amendment.

IV. Department Social Media Outlets

A. Procedures

1. All Department social media outlets shall be approved by the Superintendent or his or her designee and shall be administered by Public Safety Information Technology (PSIT).

2. The use of Department computers by Department members to access any social media outlets is prohibited absent prior supervisory approval.

3. Social media content shall adhere to applicable laws, the Rules and Regulations of the Chicago Police Department, and any relevant Department policies, including all information technology and records management policies.

a. Department records retention schedules shall apply to social media content.

b. Content is subject to Local Records Act (50 ILCS 205/1).

c. Content must be managed, stored, and retrievable in compliance with the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/1) and any relevant Department directives.

B. Department members authorized to administer Department social media outlets shall:

1. conduct themselves at all times as representatives of the Department and, accordingly, shall adhere to applicable Department Rules and Regulations and Department directives.

2. not make statements indicating the guilt or innocence of any suspect or arrestee, or comments concerning pending prosecutions.

3. not post, transmit, or otherwise disseminate confidential information related to Department training, activities, or on-going investigations without express written permission.

4. comply with all copyright, trademark, and service mark restrictions in posting materials to electronic media.

5. not use personally owned devices to manage the Department's social media activities without proper approval.

6. ensure that all relevant privacy protections are maintained.

V. Department Members' Personal Use of Social Media Outlets

A. When using social media, Department members should be mindful that their communications become part of the worldwide electronic public domain. Department members should be aware that privacy settings and social media sites are subject to constant modifications, and they should never assume that personal information posted on such sites is protected or secure.

B. Department members should expect that any information that they create, transmit, download, exchange, or discuss that is available online in a public forum may be accessed by the Department without prior notice.

C. Department members are prohibited from posting, displaying, or transmitting:

1. any communications that discredit or reflect poorly on the Department, its missions or goals.

2. content that is disparaging to a person or group based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other protected class.

3. Department information, records, documents, video recordings, audio recordings, or photographs to which they have access as a result of their employment without the written permission from the Office of News Affairs or the Office of the Superintendent.

4. any references to any other Department member's employment by the Department without that person's consent.

5. any intellectual property of the Department or the City of Chicago without the specific authorization of the Superintendent or his or her designee. Department or City of Chicago intellectual property includes but is not limited to logos, uniforms, official photographs, audio/video files, or any text documents (paper or electronic).

Hmmm, NYPD unsuccessfully attempted to suppress the RANT. Mayor Bloomberg interceded and deemed the RANT protected speech under the 1st Amendment.

Been there done that. This should be posted on the RANT in its entirety.

Rule number one, ACT ALONE tell NOBODY, EVER. Don't say cutesie innuendos at the bar. Plan. Make it quick and decisive. Know the risks. Do it. Shut your mouth. Repeat keep your mouth SHUT. Conscience may bother you on occasion and give you doubt about your actions. Ignore it, it'll pass. Remember you did civilization a solid.

'Some wise man once told me, the less you have to do with blacks the better, even for money, do not engage on a friendly basis with them.'

A black cannot be trusted ever. They don't feel any shame in lying to you - therefore, keep away from them as much as you can.

The Holocaust is the “biggest, blackest lie in history.”

From the dawn of history, those out of power have raised armies with promise of plunder, revenge and capturing women. There are no other possible motivations or rewards. Do not try to intimidate the last possible White warriors with reactionary buzz words like: theft, rape and murder. The "Law" is what those in power, use to enslave those who are out of power. White man, you are a defeated comical slave, laughed at by all the world and scorned or used by your own women. Does the term "women and minorities" ring a bell for you? The alliance is against you. And you are the true minority to boot. Your choices are twofold; accept your chains, the demise of your race and the loss of your women. Or consider and harken to the words of Robert Jay Mathews, as he speaks from his grave:

"Give your souls to your Gods and load your guns, Its time to deal in lead. We are the legions of the damned, The army of the already dead...."

Unless we have an unseen army of total Barbarians, devoid of pity, of compassion, of compunctions, of restraining moralisms, we are doomed. He who practices chivalry, when the enemy has none, fights with both hands tied behind his back.

Our army must have commitment equal to that of Palestinian suicide bombers fighting to free their land from the scourge of all the earth. Better one day as a lion, than years as a sheep. Take plunder, women and the lives of your enemies. Let no pleasure pass you by in your short sojourn on Midgard, including revenge, wives, sisters and daughters of your enemies. How many live priests or virgin nuns do you think your Viking ancestors left behind when raiding the monasteries or convents of the evil anti-nature occupation of Europe twelve centuries ago?!? Civilization has ended, this is war.

Be a Berserker until the day you depart for Valhalla with a pound of the enemies lead in your still defiant body!!!

Only out of anarchy and revolution can a new White nation arise. And if you do not succeed, let the enemy speak in horror, for generations to come, of the fury of the last Northmen.

Perry F'ing Mason said...

Where do I start??

First, I come to read your blog and SCC's blog about every day not only for laughs, but more seriously, to also see what is really going on in Chicago.

(The unvarnished truth has appeal to more people than the politically correct, slanted perspective of 99% of the press)

The Chicago media DOES filter, slant and OMIT real issues - especially if it is detrimental to the politicians. (This is a fact they cannot deny)

Second, is this directive for real?

If it is, this guy has no clue as to what reality is when it comes to freedom of speech and/or what you can restrict when it comes to electronic media.

Third, he does have some valid points that you should follow - like NOT using any department computers to ever store and/or access your website on company time.

"Access" - also applies to the copper sitting in his car with nothing to do except read the blog - do NOT do it with a "company" computer.

Using "company" resources can put you into the grinder, but if you are writing (or reading) on your own computer, and storing it on a web site outside of CPD resources - I am not sure there is any recourse by the city. (you are not using their equipment)

They can easily "lock out" access to certain sites on all "company" computers - if your "computer staff" is any good. There are programs to lock out Instant Messaging software and other sites so if they want to "ban access" they could and then your site would not be accessible by any "in house" computer. No big deal.

As to copyright, logos, etc. that's a stretch. Are ALL the logos and graphics copyrighted by the city? I doubt it. Is that the next "command staff" initiative? To sit down and fill out all the copyright forms for the government? Good use of MY taxpayer dollars because the "incompetents" can't stand the heat.

What applies to you would then have to apply to the Press. Does the Press ask for permission to use a photo of a police car? I don't think so.

As to "accuracy of fact", Chicago should have 1000s of lawsuits pending against all the papers and TV outlets based on what they put to press and airwaves. Are THEIR stories all 100% factual? 50%? What's the threshold before the city should take THEM to court?

In "real" America your blog is safe and protected. In Communist Chicago, "selective enforcement" of rules not provisioned by the US Constitution could prevail.

Hopefully, you stay ahead of this and continue reporting as you have better insights to what is "really" going on than your professional "journalist" counterparts.

Just because its on paper - doesn't make this General Order legal. A good example - when you go to a Parking Garage and the sign says "not liable for any valuables left in the car". They ARE.

So what is written - even though it might sound very "official", isn't necessarily legal, let alone Constitutional.

Next case.

Outside of the sometimes dumb and stupid things put on their personal FaceBook pages, doesn't this order violate the 1st Amendment rights?

Didnt he just break B.2 from his own directive when he was quoted in, the tribune, speaking on, a pending investigation concerning a police officer involved shooting. Looks like he's trying to frighten us outta exercising our rights to free speech. Watch out shaved, Scc, looks like he's trying to shut u down and shut us up.

P.O. Randy Stevens, Dist. 018 said...

To My Dear Friend, Detective Shaved:

I posted the following comments on SCC this morning; I'm posting them here, too, to spread the word of our latest Department Directive...

THANK YOU! To the Anonymous poster (12:20 AM) who informed us of the new Department Directive, General Order 09-01-06. I was RDO yesterday, and today, so if I didn't check my trusty friend SCC's blog regularly, I would have been unaware of "Use of Social Media Outlets," effective 09-March-2012, which states, in part:

"V. Department Members' Personal Use of Social Media Outlets
C. Department members are prohibited from posting, displaying, or transmitting:
1. any communications that discredit or reflect poorly on the Department, its missions or goals."

Over the past many months, I have enjoyed exercising my God-Given Right to Freedom of Speech, a right given to all of us by our Divine Creator, this God-Given Right then merely affirmed by the U.S. Constitution. I have proudly posted my personal opinions regarding the conduct of the current Superintendent, Garry McCarthy (including his absolutely glorious performance at St. Sabina Church were he schooled us all on the REAL cause of urban black gun violence...."goverment-sponsored racism"), and his predecessor, Jody Weiss, as well as former Mayor Daley, and current Mayor Emanuel, and various Department policies. These comments were ALWAYS posted as a private citizen, from my personal computer, while at home, off-duty. I have always considered it a RIGHT to sign my own name, Randy Stevens, and my unit of assignment, the Fighting 018th,
as guaranteed by the First Amendment. I'm aware I am the only officer still on the job that posted his real name, always, never as "anonymous," but hell, I figured the First Amendment trumps all....silly me!

This new General Order, 09-01-06, states that even as off-duty private citizens, we are denied the right to make any comments about the Department or its policies, unless it is 100% complimentary of, and completely supportive of, the Department, and its "missions or goals."

There have been MANY times in the past history of the Chicago Police Department, thoroughly documented in books, articles, and Federal Court-Ordered Consent Decrees, in which the Department has Wilfully and Intentionally violated the First Amendment (and other) Civil Rights of the citizens of Chicago. These past violations have cost the city treasury millions of dollars in justified lawsuits against the Department and its often reckless and criminal Exempt Members, who felt they could do ANYTHING they wanted, to violate citizens' rights, because of their clout-heavy status and political connections. These past Civil Rights Violations, at the time they were concocted by, and implemented by, the Exempt Members of the Department, were ALSO official "missions and goals" of the Department!

So according to this new General Order released yesterday, if the Department creates and implements "missions and goals" which are Civil Rights Violations, and are dishonest, immoral, ignoble, reckless and/or criminal in nature, we as members of the Department (but also private citizens when off-duty), are FORBIDDEN to utter a single word of any illegalities or improprieties being committed by the current Exempt Staff. We are to "shut up" and do what we are told, to simply obey orders without question.

The Nazi military personnel of WWII who violated others' rights used that "just obeying orders" defense at the Nuremburg Trials, and they were EXECUTED, because obeying unlawful and immoral orders is not a defense!

The Horrific, Orwellian World of
"1984" has arrived, 28 years late.

Cut its fucking tail of and let it float off to rot in another generation, fuck them!

With a blatant disregard for anything constitutional, it's fortunate for your conservative community that the States are giving a giant foam middle finger to this shit, just follow judicial watch.

It is obvious that this is targeting Shaved and SCC. They will do whatever they feel like to discover the identities of these fellows that have exposed corruption, stupidity and waste of the Chicago Police Department.

They think they can silence cop bloggers but they are wrong. If Shaved and SCC were shut down there will be ten more to replace them.

Since my time as a department member is long over, I will continue blogging with a vengence

Hi Garry and Rahm! Let me start by saying that I am not a cop. Or even a city employee. . Just a 60+ hour/week schmuck trying to keep my family fed and save to escape the only place I have ever called home. Now even though I don't know either of you, nor do I even know a CPD/CFD employee as a friend or family member, I do have the great fortune of working in tandem with those fine men and women daily. I am not the only one. Some of us; doctors, attorneys, etc. are smart enough to know that you two are at best piles of dig shit compared to your rank and file.

Additionally, we know that the information regarding the factual happenings of our city won't come from the msm.

So what does all this mean you ask?

Well, in a nutshell, be warned that you may bite of more than you legally can chew with this GO. I'll be damned if I leave this once great city without a good fight. And rest assured I will be more then happy to round up my many educated and well funded peers to support anyones right to free speech. Especially when it pertains to simultaneously protecting our best interest to remain well informed.
