- Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown turned in his resignation Wednesday, just one day after Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot lost her re-election bid in the Windy City.
- Brown served as Chicago’s top cop for two years, a tenure marred by spiking violence and stagnant progress on police reforms — the same issues that caused Lightfoot to become the city’s first incumbent mayor to not be re-elected in four decades.
- Brown said in his letter of resignation that he was taking a job at a personal injury law firm based in Texas, the Chicago Tribune reported.
- “I will continue to pray that all officers return home to their families safe at the end of their shift,” said Brown, 62. “May the Good Lord bless the city of Chicago and the men and women who serve and protect this great city.”
