Chicago police superintendent Terry Hillard, 59, plans to retire in August after five years on the job, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Hillard’s tenure has been marked by an improvement in his department’s technological capacities as well as several policy changes, including the videotaping of homicide confessions, more officer training and a new policy on use of deadly force. The Sun-Times says that Hillard’s departure could mean the return to Chicago of Washington, D.C., Police Chief Charles Ramsey, a top Chicago police official who was passed over when Hillard was appointed. “Chicago is my home department, my home city. Obviously, I would be flattered if something like that came up,” Ramsey, 53, told the Sun-Times recently. Ramsey was critical of Mayor Richard Daley at the time, but he seen the mayor since then and believes all has been forgiven, the Sun-Times says.
