Chicago PD Adds 1,000 Officers to Force
As part of the city’s plan to combat the worst homicide rate in decades, the Chicago Police Department has announced a plan to add 1,000 officers to the ranks over the next two years. Chicago PD Superintendent, Eddie Johnson, has said that this will help to gain the city’s trust back during a year where there have been multiple police officers under investigation for the killings of several men and the homicide rate is on pace to be over 700 by the year’s end. Johnson said that the hiring boost came after a meeting with Mayor Rahm Emanuel who helped develop the plan to improve the department.
