State and Chicago lawmakers are introducing legislation that would require police officers to have at least one day off each week.
State lawmakers are taking note of Chicago Police officers who have complained of mandatory overtime and canceled days off after three officers lost their lives to suicide in July. Now, some Chicago Democrats are proposing bills to require Illinois police departments to require officers get at least one day off each week in hopes of improving officers’ mental health.
