Tomorrow, Emanuel will be asking the City Council to approve spending $95 million for a new Police Academy that will include a new shooting range and a pool. Emanuel claims this facility is called for by the DOJ investigation of the CPD. Not true. The report calls for training to "ensure consistency with CPD policy and current law, particularly with respect to the use of force..." This could be accomplished in any of the many public school buildings that Emanuel has closed, and certainly does not require any new facility - let alone, one that will cost $95 million +.

Moving to Rogers Park next month from downtown. Do any specific community action groups come to mind, that a newcomer should join to start becoming involved?
No particular cause/topic in mind right now--just looking to become a contributing member of the community.
