Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy was the guest speaker at a City Club of Chicago luncheon Monday. He talked about the direction he and Mayor Rahm Emanuel are planning for the department and their efforts to reduce crime.

"A legitimate judicial system, starting with the police and ending with incarceration or whatever it is that happens at the other end, actually encourages people to comply with the law," said McCarthy.

McCarthy also emphasized that although crime rates are steadily dropping it's not enough. He wants to encourage more community involvement among officers and city residents.
