Report: Fewer beat officers under Emanuel
A new report finds mayor emanual failed to keep a post-election promise.
Shortly after he was sworn in, Emanuel vowed to increase the number of police officers on the street.
But, a Chicago Sun Times analysis found there are actually fewer beat officers than before he took office.
The report blames turnover, saying for every newly hired officer assigned to a beat during the past two years… six others retired.
The fewer beat officers coincides with an increase in murders citywide.
