News Roundup: Understaffed police departments will finally get more officers

The Chicago Police Department, which is currently understaffed by about 2,300 officers each day, may be getting a bit of relief. And it might not come at a better time after a summer of shootings throughout various neighborhoods. Funding for 200 new officers has been worked into the 2011 budget. The
new year will also bring reassignments and police academy graduations
that will put between 780 and 830 police officers to street duty over a
two year period.
