Superintendent Jody Weis
A group of black ministers is demanding Mayor Richard M. Daley and Police Superintendent Jody Weis keep their promise to put more cops in high crime areas.
Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis did the right thing by stripping six officers and a sergeant of their police powers because one of them stands accused of punching a suspect in handcuffs as the others “watched,” Mayor Daley said Tuesday.
With the Chicago Police Department facing a serious manpower shortage, Police Supt. Jody Weis on Tuesday suggested eventually allowing retired officers to be rehired as an auxiliary police force to supplement full-time officers.
Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis says the allegations are disturbing.
A police detective who noticed a pattern of more than two dozen armed robberies and stopped that suspected robber at his last crime was one of 15 officers honored — two posthumously — on Tuesday in recognition of outstanding valor.
