Students show up to oppose budgeting for more police officers downtown

Students on campus and off registered in numbers to speak against Amendment 10, a proposal made by Ald. Harrington-McKinney of Dis. 1 and Ald. Henak of Dis. 10 to accept a grant to create the “Downtown Entertainment Zone team,” which would amend the Police Department-Police Field budget. If added to the budget, the amendment would create four new police fficer positions and reclassify one police officer position to a Sergeant.
