On Friday evening, a judge granted the city’s request for a temporary injunction barring Catanzara from making any public comments that encourage FOP members to disobey the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate until the next hearing on the city’s lawsuit on October 25.
- CPD officers were given until Friday to disclose their Covid-19 vaccine status
- Unvaccinated Chicago cops face being terminated under city’s vaccine mandate
- This could result in up to half of the city’s 13,000 cops being axed by the city
- As a result, a memo was sent out on Saturday saying time off will be restricted
Chicago is restricting cops from taking time off as the city prepares to ax up to half of its 13,000 officers who are yet to declare their Covid-19 vaccination status.
In a memo issued by the city’s police department a day after officers were required to disclose their vaccine status, officers were informed elective time off will be restricted, according to WLS.
‘Until further notice, the use of elective time by sworn CPD members is restricted,’ the memo obtained by the local network said.
