CHICAGO -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel is out for a three-mile run this morning with some Chicago police recruits.

This comes just after he delivered a major policy speech Thursday evening with his plan to combat Chicago’s growing problem with street violence.

He spoke for about 40 minutes Thursday in front of an invitation-only crowd at Malcolm X College on the city's West Side. The friendly audience offered applause several times, including when Emanuel mentioned plans to add more police officers and a new mentorship program.

More than 3000 people have been shot already this year.

That total is more than all of last year.
