Chicago's top cop promoted four of his officers Friday afternoon.

Police Supt. Jody Weis named Ernest Brown, a 27-year veteran of the force, as the new deputy superintendent in charge of all patrol officers. 

Brown succeeds Dan Dugan, who was reassigned after a surge of weekend shootings and homicides.  The breaking point came one day last month that saw more than 40 people were shot and eight killed

Weis also promoted Brown's deputy chief, Nickolas Roti, to head the organized crime unit.  Eddie Welch III will become deputy chief of patrol for Area 1 and Anthony Carothers to commander of the 7th District in Englewood.
