Supervisors for police: How many is too many?
In Wauconda, Ill., ten of 26 sworn officers hold supervisory positions
Chicago Daily Herald
WAUCONDA, Ill. — With 10 of the 26 sworn police officers in Wauconda holding supervisory positions, even Mayor Mark Knigge believes the department might be a little top-heavy.
"At some point we'd like to see that number reduced," he said. "Our hope is that it could happen through retirement."
At the other end of the spectrum is Wheaton, with just 12 supervisors among the 65 full-time officers plus 14 part-timers.
