CPD adding 1,000 to the streets this summer

In Chicago, when the summer comes, the city sees a spike in crime.  The Chicago Police Department wants to combat that by adding extra police officers out in the streets.  Superintendent Eddie Johnson announced that the department would be adding an additional 1,000 policed officers to the streets this summer.  He said in a statement that the department is "going to add officers to areas experiencing violent crime, and we're going to fill vacancies in districts in communities across the city". 

He continued to say that it would be inefficient to pull officers from other communities because criinaks would catch on to it.
