White Sox To Have Special Presentation In Honor Of Chicago Police Department

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago White Sox will have a special presentation honoring the Chicago Police Department. The White Sox chairman, Jerry Reinsdorf, announced the ceremony on Tuesday afternoon:

"Mayor Emanuel asked the White Sox organization to join the city of Chicago in honoring the men and women of the Chicago Police Department who represent the most dedicated and finest of our great city, and we are proud to recognize their service," Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said in a statement. "The White Sox thank these true Chicago heroes who served our city during the NATO Summit."

The police have been negotiating touchy issues over the week as dignitaries and protesters from around the world gathered for the NATO summit. In addition to protecting politicians and overseeing peaceful protests, the CPD also arrested several suspected terrorists.
