More cops on foot patrol in high-crime neighborhoods
A new Chicago police strategy is being expanded after it showed signs of cutting crime.
Starting next week, two dozen more police officers will be put on foot patrol in a high-crime neighborhood.
The plan has been successful since it was implemented in Chatham last month.
Twenty-four rookie officers with a six pm roll call, walk the neighborhood through the night.
They’re backed up by veteran police in cars.
The plan is to have them in 10 more high-crime neighborhoods by the end of the year.
