Chicago police officers end training, join force

October 14, 2009

The crop of officers that finished their training eralier this month and joined the Chicago Police Department were the first to receive a hate-crime sensitivity training. The Holocaust Museum in Skokie hosted the two-day training, which Sofia and I reported on.

The group of new officers will be working with field training officer for three months, CBS2 writes. What I found interesting – and hopeful – is what one of the new officers tells them. CBS2 quotes Michelle Tannehill as saying:

“I think it’s really important to get the community involved. Us knowing exactly what’s going on in the community and the community and police working together, we can help solve the problems in the different districts that we’re going to.”

Another quote caught my eye – CBS apparently caught up with Paul Mieszala, who we spoke with for our article, too! Glad to see he finished successfully.
