CHICAGO (CBS) — The first batch of Chicago cops being pulled off desk duty are slated to hit the streets this weekend.
That can’t come soon enough for Police Supt. Garry McCarthy, who said in an interview on the CBS 2 Morning News that it’s “very, very frustrating” that improvements in violent crime in Chicago are frequently followed by backsliding.
McCarthy said the shooting of eight people over last weekend came after a drop during the week.
“Sometimes you can do all the right things, and we’re not getting the exact results we want. We will continue to refine our strategies,” he said.
