IN AND OUT: City Will Transfer 8 Officers Here (But How Many Will Leave?)

Eight police officers will be allowed to transfer into our district next month according to a post at Second City Cop.

At the same time, several other “good” districts and both airports will be accepting transfers, so we should expect some of our current officers to leave next month, too.

So far this year, dozens of officers have transferred into the 19th district, but nearly as many have transferred out or left the department.

There are currently 17 more officers in the district than there were at the first of the year. Even with those gains, the district has 8 fewer officers than August 2013 and 106 fewer officers than in October 2011.
