    Alderpeople on Tuesday prodded at Mayor Brandon Johnson’s nearly $2 billion budget for the Chicago Police Department, quizzing Supt. Larry Snelling about the creation of 398 new civilian positions within the department, where he stands on a plan to send clinicians to mental health calls instead of police, and why a helicopter included in the 2023 budget still hasn’t landed in the city.  

    Snelling took the hotseat for more than eight hours during a budget hearing less than one month after the City Council confirmed his appointment to lead the police department.
