Assistant Chief Yarbrough has uniform division taking the lead working Glenwood Days. In years past, Special Operations worked the event, leaving uniform available to do their primary job, answering 911 calls. Because there will be such a demand on the line officers, Yarbrough has pushed down to the precinct commanders to deny leave time in April, just in time for your child's school spring break.
Now we learn "Freaknik" is trying to make a comeback during April.
The scant number of uniform officers will be no match for the thousands of drunken, drug induced youth that will being running rampant through DeKalb.
This is a formula for disaster. If Yarbrough doesn't change his mind, the combination of Glenwood Days and Freaknik will create a very dangerous work environment for us and will put the public in harms way.
