Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown outlined a new foot pursuit policy Wednesday.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago police will host an online event Tuesday night where people can get more information about the department's foot pursuit policy.

Just last week, Superintendent David Brown announced changes to that policy following the deaths of Adam Toledo and Anthony Alvarez. Both were shot by police after being chased.
