Too little too late -- at a time when we have very little support from a cash-strapped public.
It still looks good.
new billboard next weekHoffman for Mayor in 2011
This has been mentioned numerous times in the past. What made FOP finally do this.
I can remember suggesting this to the FOP when the SanAntonio pd won 47% increase in benefit by hiring a PR firm to sell the citizen on what great cops they have...that was at least 20 years ago...
I hope the public realizes that our contract expired over 2 years ago. In a time when the economy was good.
Glad to see the leaders of FLOP finally taking more of a proactive stance on the issue of NO CONTRACT.Better LATE than never!
2 years and 2 months without a contract and Chicago's finest have continued reducing crimedoing more with lesshow many old timers will retire
waste of money

...a couple years too late...a few dollars too shortShould have hired a p/r firm years ago, but they didn't want to make 42 extra short too mad and not grease the rails so the fop executive members "golden retirement" choo-choo can keep chugging along. How much has king shorty paid the spin doctors, media gnomes & message massagers in his campaign to keep casting the Police in a bad light during these negotiations? Are they going to tattle on him to the arbitrator? "Ooooh, count how many times he used the media as a negotiating tool?" Get real, fop is toothless... When the devil (Daley) tries to embrace (or in fop's case co-opt) you, good men are obligated to bite his nose off. Not look to their own selfish interests.
This feels like a ploy to mollify the membership.They refused to put up billboards before the Olympic Committee came to town, but they do it now? And the boards say nothing about two years, plus, without a contract.The public has no idea what the billboards really mean.
