Chicago police launched a new program Saturday by opening a satellite office in a public library.Mayor Daley, police Supt. Jody Weis, and other officials cut a ribbon during the ceremony in the Clearing branch library, located in the 6400-block of West 63rd Street. They said they hope the office promotes better cooperation between the public and police.

People can file police reports in the office, disclose information on possible crimes or suspects, and get to know officers.

The new office will be staffed Monday through Saturday whenever the library is open.
