Police Superintendent Jody Weis spoke to [...] ABC7's Newsviews.
Earlier, Weis disclosed that murders are down 2.3 percent this year.
[...] Weis addressed concerns that police relocated to high-crime areas will be taken from low-crime areas.
"We're looking at balancing the workload, and that doesn't mean out of the slow areas we're gonna take officers, because the number of officers they have right now might be perfect," said Weis. "We're looking where there seems to be an abundance of officers, based upon calls for service and other factors, and right now we have our operational folks looking at this. We hope to roll something out in January."
