Fraternal Order of Police, which represents rank-and-file officers, has voted no confidence in Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown, and First Deputy Supt. Eric Carter.

The decision was prompted by growing dissatisfaction with officers’ working conditions, according to FOP President John Catanzara.  Officers’ days off have been canceled on many instances in the last year, and they have been assigned to 12-hour shifts in preparation for probable rallies or disturbances.
