Chicago residents gather in Beverly for final public forum on selection of new top cop
CHICAGO - The last public forum in the search for a new Chicago police superintendent took place on the South Side Monday night.
The forum was held at the Beverly Arts Center on 111th Street, starting at 6 p.m. This marked the seventh gathering held since mid-April.
The panel responsible for narrowing down the pool of 52 applicants to three recommendations has noted significant community turnout.
Many Chicago residents agree that the new superintendent should have local ties and a plan to engage youth and enhance community relations.
