No body cams for the Chicago cops guarding Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s house

Published by American Thinker

The Chicago Police Department is committed to supplying body-worn cameras (BWCs) to its patrol officers “to [protect] the safety and welfare of the public.”  There is only one glaring exception: the cops guarding Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s house.

This is one of the devices:

CWBChicago reports:

Chicago police officers who are assigned to sit outside … Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home at 4228 North Hermitage have been ordered to not work with the body-worn cameras (BWC) that other officers are required to wear.  News of the development came this morning on the Second City Cop blog.

Now, CWBChicago has learned that the no-camera order was issued by someone who “out-ranks” 19th District Commander and BWC champion Marc Buslik.  Whether that person is a police executive or a member of the mayor’s office was not immediately clear.
