Topinka Has Concerns About ISP Safety on Chicago Streets


It’s not her usual area of interest, but Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is expressing serious concerns about the safety of Illinois State Police troopers on the streets of Chicago.

 

Governor Pat Quinn recently announced plans to send 40 troopers to assist Chicago police in rounding up violent fugitives.

 

But Topinka says their distinctive uniforms will make those troopers an attractive target for gang members… who may view those troopers as a, quote, “trophy.”

 

Chicago police union officials have also objected to the state police plan.
