Study Says Some Chicago Cops Can Drink Before Work

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2013

WESTCHESTER, Ill. (AP) – A new report has found that some Chicago-area police officers are working under contracts that allow them to have a few drinks before they go to work.

The analysis is from the Better Government Association and WMAQ-TV in Chicago.
It found that some police contracts have provisions that allow officers to come to work with blood alcohol levels below the legal limit for drunken driving in Illinois.

One union official says the provisions make sense because some over-the-counter medicines and mouthwashes contain alcohol.
