Rogers Park to acquire more beat cops

The Loyola Student Dispatch reports that
"Rogers Park will be among the neighborhoods to receive more beat officers under a plan by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to place more cops on the streets".

Tribune reporter, Matthew Walberg writes
"Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced plans to assign 92 more police officers — including several dozen from administrative jobs in City Hall and police headquarters — to beat patrols as part of his effort to boost the number of cops in neighborhoods hit hard by crime".

I thank Mayor Rahm Emanuel for responding to our calls and letters requesting more beat cops to make Rogers Park a safer place to live and work.
