During an emotional announcement, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson makes it official: he will retire at the end of the year. Johnson was appointed top cop nearly four years ago and has spent more than three decades with the police department.
Johnson will remain with the Chicago Police Department through the end of 2019 and work alongside former Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck, who was named interim superintendent Friday. Beck said he has no intention of permanently filling in as Johnson’s successor.
