Jody Weis is headed back to the Chicago crime scene.

The former police superintendent has accepted a job as deputy director of the Chicago Crime Commission, the non-profit organization announced Tuesday.

The former FBI agent is expected to appear at a Wednesday news conference to discuss plans to focus resources on gangs, guns and drugs to "protect and enhance Chicago's image and social viability," according to a commission statement.

Weis took over as Chicago's top cop in 2008. He left earlier this year when his contract expired. He took with him a controversial $76,308 check for 64 unused vacation days.

Former Newark, N.J., police chief Garry McCarthy was appointed in his place.
