Chicago PD's 200 Cops Won't Cover Attrition

October 12, 2010  | 

The city of Chicago will hire 200 cops next year, but those officers won't cover the number of officers expected to leave the department, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

The department is currently 800 officers short of where it was in March 2008, according to Fraternal Order of Police President Mark Donahue.

Also, Donahue said the two new classes will not be enough to keep pace with the "natural rate of attrition" that prompted 358 officers to retire during the first six months of this year. At least 116 more officers have signed up to  retire next year, taking advantage of Daley's offer to retire at 55 with premium health benefits.

The department had 13,354 sworn officers in 2008, according to the Chicago Police Department's annual report.
