CPD will work overtime to combat city’s violence

The Chicago police will be working overtime to help combat the city’s violence.

The plan is called the “Summer Sure Overtime Initiative.”

CPD has canceled days off on weekends for dozens of officers in certain high-crime neighborhoods.

The plan is to saturate the city’s most violent areas on the south and west sides from Friday to Monday 6pm to 3am.

This is at least the third consecutive spring that the department has turned to overtime  to try to stem the rise in violence when the weather gets warmer.

  • Hire more Police

    Chicago has the 2nd most city wide cameras only behind London. Cameras can not redpond to a crime. If the camera operator does not see the crime in real time they can not dispatch police. Hire nore police officers to patrol the cities streets. CPD officers shouldn’t be made to work overtime in a very violent city with limited resources. The city by donig this puts those officers in an even more dangerous situation, overworked, fatigued and out manned. Enough with the fantasy of we can work with what we have.

    HIRE MORE POLICE OFFICERS PLEASE & GIVE THEM A COST OF LIVING INCREASE SINCE THEY ARE REQUIRED TO LIVE IN THE CITY

  • Duh

    Overtime? We were told Stupidintendent McGoofy was on the street over the weekend (the one with the most shootings this year) and therefore the criminals are scarred fecalless and cannot shoot anyone. Or maybe not.
