US Official News

CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy as he announced the reassignment of approximately200 sworn police officers from administrative positions to Area Headquarters where they will join existing Area Saturation Teams and focus on preventing gun violence and gang crimes. The redeployment comes after multiple audits determined that additional administrative responsibilities should be handled by civilians and not sworn personnel.

“Since our first week in office, we have been focused on moving police officers onto the beat and working directly in our communities,” said Mayor Emanuel. “Today’s move is another effort to target gangs and guns in particular areas with every officer we have available.”
