Chicago police unveil long-awaited foot pursuit policy

In this Saturday, May 1, 2021 file photo, Ailani Alvarez, 2, daughter of Anthony Alvarez who was shot by the police, holds a sign reading "I miss my daddy" during a protest in Chicago. Chicago police officers will no longer be allowed to chase people on foot simply because they run away or give chase over minor offenses, the department said Tuesday, June 21, 2022, more than a year after two foot pursuits ended with officers fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy and 22-year-old man.
