- Chicago police officers in nearly a dozen districts and units will try out new schedules in 2009, including a 10-hour, four-day work week, in a pilot program the city hopes will cut overtime and boost officer morale.

At least they do us the courtesy of burying the crap in the Saturday paper like they do for unpopular City Hall moves. Hooray! We rate as high as ward heelers finally.
