As the days heat up during the summer months in Chicago usually so does the crime, and this year is no exception. And while the entire city suffers the consequences in one way or another, perhaps no one feels it as acutely as Chicago’s law enforcement officers. For a closer look at the sometimes harrowing work of Chicago’s finest, WBEZ’s Eight Forty-Eight invited Chicago Police officer and author Martin Preib on the show yesterday to discuss his job as a cop, and some of the stories he’s written about it in his new book The Wagon and Other Stories from the City.
Navigate to the Eight Forty-Eight website to listen to the archived audio from the show or listen to UCP’s own podcast with the author and read one of the stories from the book: “Body Bags.”
