Deadline Moved Again
- The deadline to apply for the Chicago Police Department is right around the corner, yet the very people the police are trying to attract are not exactly lining up for the jobs.
The push for new recruits, especially black and Hispanic, comes on the heels of controversial police shootings, the department’s promise to increase diversity and a need to replace retiring officers. Yet many of the nearly hundred chairs were empty.
This is at least the second "extension." In November, the deadline was extended a month to January 16. Now it's an additional 14 days. Rahm should just think about reverting to the old days when you showed up at the aldercreatures' ward office with an envelope, and they gave you a badge and a starting date later that month.
