    The City Council Committee on Police and Fire approved the appointment (A2023-0005945) of Kyle Cooper to the Police Board Tuesday but not before several alderpeople grilled him about his views on policing. Alds. Felix Cardona (31) and Greg Mitchell (7) voted against the appointment. 

    The police and fire committee meeting was originally scheduled for Dec. 4, but the body failed to meet a quorum. Though the committee was scheduled to consider other items last week, such as raising the maximum employment age for police officers and firefighters and the commissioning of a workforce allocation study, the committee did not take those items up.
