Statement from Mayor Emanuel

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

"While today’s threat wasn't bona fide, it is a reminder of why our public safety teams constantly prepare for active situations and train together. I want to commend the Police Department, Fire Department, OEMC and Metra for responding rapidly and coordinating cohesively. And I want to thank the individual who saw something suspicious and said something to authorities. Today is proof that when residents and law enforcement work together, Chicago is safer and stronger."
