Determined to prevent the traditional surge in summer violence, Mayor Daley on Wednesday ordered police "in battle dress" to use roadside safety checks, dog searches and high-tech license plate readers to establish an unprecedented weekend presence in high-crime neighborhoods.
"I don't think we've ever had anything at this level before," said Police Supt. Phil Cline.
