At the August meeting of the Finance / Personnel Committee, Police Chief Joseph Angelino had informed the committee that one of his officers had transferred to a different department. The committee had questioned whether or not the position needed to be refilled.

The mayor and First Ward Alderman Robert Carey said they had both received calls and letters from community members stating they wanted to see the position filled.
