Former Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis has resigned as president of the Chicago Crime Commission effective today, officials said.
Weis is leaving to pursue interests outside of the scope of the Chicago Crime Commission including teaching, research, and private industry, officials said in a press release.
“I feel extremely fortunate to have been a part of such a terrific organization and learn first-hand the role non-profit organizations can play in support of the men and women on the front lines keeping our city safe. It has been an honor and a pleasure to have served the Chicago Crime Commission, its devoted membership, and the City of Chicago." Weis said in a statement.
Weis served as police superintendent from 2008 until last year when Mayor Rahm Emanuel took over. He took over the commission later that year.
J.R. Davis, Chairman of the Chicago Crime Commission, will take over as president of the organization.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
