Ric Flair to Head State Police
- Michael Sneed has learned the state’s top cop, Hiram Grau, who has decades long career in Chicago Police enforcement, has resigned from his job.
Word is Grau, a highly respected former member of the CPD’s top brass, will be replaced by Chicago Police commander Leo Schmitz, who currently heads the Englewood Police district. Schmitz, 55, joined the CPD in August, 1986.
Schmitz was selected for the job because of his experience in one of the more rougher districts in the city, a source said.
