Chicago Criminals Encouraged To Make A Run For It With New Police Policy

The City of Chicago has implemented a new policy that prohibits police officers from pursuing potential misdemeanor suspects on foot.

The policy strictly prohibits officers from chasing individuals who commit certain “less than Class A misdemeanor offenses,” including “business offenses, parking violations (e.g., curfew drinking on the public way),” and Class B or C misdemeanors including “simple assault or criminal trespass to land.”


Class A misdemeanors such as battery, aggravated assault, trespassing and theft are exempt from this policy.

“The impact on crime has been studied (and) we can look back at what has made officers safer, has made communities safer for over a decade,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown told reporters at a press briefing on the policy.
