Group Wants Answers On Burke’s Security Detail

CHICAGO (WBBM) — The Better Government Association is asking a judge to order the Chicago Police Department to release information about Ald. Edward Burke’s security detail.

As WBBM’s David Roe reports, the BGA claims the Police Department has refused to release documents about the protection and transportation of Ald. Burke (14th) that were part of an August last year Freedom of Information Act request.

Police say some of the records could provide information that might compromise Burke’s security.

But the BGA says all it wants to know is the cost of the security.

The watchdog group says most of the information about the security detail has already been published in the Chicago Sun-Times.
