Public allowed input on Chicago’s next top cop
CHICAGO — You can have a say in the choice of Chicago’s next police superintendent.
The city police board is allowing the public to give its opinions during a board meeting Jan. 12th.
Mayor Emanuel forced Garry McCarthy to resign after the release of the Laquan McDonald shooting video in November.
Since then, activists have demanded a voice in the selection process.
The board is expected to nominate three candidates and Mayor Emanuel will make the final pick.
Twenty-nine-year police veteran John Escalante is serving as interim superintendent.
