I have just been informed that Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has reassigned 24th District Commander James Roussell to Area Central Patrol, where he will oversee four district commanders.
Superintendent McCarthy has named Captain Terrence Williams as Acting 24th District Police Commander. Captain Williams has been serving in the 15th Police District in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood.
I wish Commander Roussell well in his new post, but I will miss him. Our police district has been fortunate to have some very good police commanders. Commander Roussell was one of the best.
I look forward to working with Captain Williams in his new role here in Rogers Park.
