Ald. Ervin’s Statement on Mayor Emanuel’s Redeployment of CPD Officers

"It's important for everyone in every ward, especially the 28th, to feel safe to live, go to work and take their children to school. Police forces need to be reallocated to ensure that happens and the Mayor's effort to deploy 500 CPD officers is a step in the right direction,” said Alderman Jason Ervin of the 28th Ward. “We can’t stop there; more resources must be allocated to high crime areas, like some parts of the 28th Ward, in terms of community policing programs, likes CAPS and Cease Fire.  I’ll stand side by side with the Mayor to find these resources within the state and federal governments.”
