Over 80 New CPD Officers Hit The Streets In 2018!

Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Sunday that over 80 new police officers have been deployed since the start of the new year.

The 83 new officers are part of a push to expand the force by 970 recruits by the end of 2018, according to the mayor’s office. The hiring surge was announced in late 2016 in response to record-setting violence across the city. The plan aims to add new officers to the street each month this year.
