10-99 Units Returning
- Chicago police officers no longer have to work in pairs, as department leaders Friday announced said they would lift the order imposed after attacks in Dallas and Baton Rouge, La., killed eight officers in July.
All units will be returning to regular deployment as of Monday, after the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to a Chicago Police Department statement. Officials blamed the partner requirement for slower response times to incidents in the city during a particularly violent summer.
