'Eight Forty-Eight' takes a closer look at the police under Mayor Emanuel's administration in 'The First 100.'.

Jul. 21, 2011

Eight Forty-Eight examines Chicago police and public safety policy under Mayor Emanuel for its series, The First 100. Chicago’s crime rate has been in  steady decline for years but it might be hard to know it from the also-steady stream of news headlines on violence. And a boat accident that claimed two lives in an annual race between Chicago and Mackinac Island is raising questions in the sailing community, WBEZ's Robin Amer reports. Then Chicago filmmaker Dean Peterson looks at the woes of romance in his debut feature-length release, Incredibly Small.
