Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx Statement on Retirement of Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson

November 7, 2019

“I’m proud to salute Superintendent Eddie Johnson for his commitment to the brave women and men of the Chicago Police Department and the City of Chicago. As a life-long Chicagoan, who like me grew up in Cabrini Green, to have the opportunity to give back to the city you love through public service is an honor and privilege. This work calls for tremendous sacrifice, and I am grateful for Superintendent Johnson’s collaborative partnership and mutual respect as we worked to increase public safety and end the cycle of violence in our communities. I want to thank Superintendent Johnson for serving and protecting the citizens of Chicago for 30 years and wish him and his family all the best as they enjoy the next chapter of their lives.”
