Chicago, IL—The Windy City has been off to a violent start of summer. They have a major shortage of officers to deal with crime.
There is a simple solution to deal with this urban nightmare.
Ignoring this problem will have dire consequences affecting rental property, businesses and the quality of life for years to come. Chicago’s lost enough taxpayers to safer and less hostile communities.
There are several thousand honorably retired Chicago cops around. Loads of them are fit, trained and still have their uniforms and equipment.
They can be brought back to cover weekends and evening hours.
These officers can be assigned, to less strenuous beats while the younger officers are sent to do the heavy lifting.
The retirees should not be forced to reside within the city because many of them moved upon retirement to the suburbs.
This will not exceed the overtime rates of regular officers.
