Former Chicago police superintendent Jody Weis resigned Friday from his leadership post at the Chicago Crime Commission after eight months on the job.
Weis left the organization, which advocates for "sensible and promising" law enforcement programs and polices, to pursue other interests, including teaching, research and private industry, the commission said in a statement.
"I feel extremely fortunate to have been a part of such a terrific organization and learn first-hand the role non-profit organizations can play in support of the men and women on the front lines keeping our city safe. It has been an honor and a pleasure to have served the Chicago Crime Commission, its devoted membership, and the City of Chicago," said Weis.
Chairman J.R. Davis will take over as president.
