A peace march was held Wednesday night in Chicago. Organizers encouraged young people from the community to take the upcoming police exam.

Pastor Ira Acree says his church is pledging to sponsor between 50 and 100 people to take the exam.

He says it's a real opportunity to get some real diversity among the ranks of the police department.
