WELCOME: CPD Allowing 15 Cops To Transfer Here

The Chicago Police Department will allow 15 cops to transfer into our 19th district over the next few weeks according to the Second City Cop blog.

Local alderman Tom Tunney has promised that another 20 officers will be allowed to transfer here in the first quarter of 2016.

The 19th district has lost 135 cops— nearly 30% of its manpower—over the past 4 years. As a result, more officers are forced to patrol solo and fewer cops are available to handle calls for service.

What is not reported or known is how many officers will be transferring out or retiring from the district. Those numbers are not advertised for obvious reasons.

CWBChicago was created in 2013 by five residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown who had grown disheartened with inaccurate information that was being provided at local Community Policing (CAPS) meetings. Our coverage area has expanded since then to cover Lincoln Park, River North, The Loop, Uptown, and other North Side Areas. But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets. Our editorial email address is news@cwbchicago.com
