It’s a turning point in the tenure of Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis. His contract expires on March 1. That comes just a week after Chicago’s mayoral election. That’s important, of course, because the Superintendent serves at the pleasure of the Mayor.

Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis joined "Eight Forty-Eight's" Alison Cuddy to explain.
