A plan is being put in place by law enforcement leaders in Illinois that focuses on how they can arrest hundreds of people in one day, what are they planning for? Here are the details you need to know...

Plan for the Worst & Hope for the Best

I'm glad to hear that the police are preparing for all possible scenarios this August when the Democratic National Convention comes to the Windy City.

All eyes will be on how Chicago can handle this massive event, hopefully, the city will shine.
