Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has reassigned 24th Police District Commander Thomas Waldera. Effective immediately, Commander Waldera will head up the Chicago Police Department Narcotics Division.
Superintendent McCarthy has named Roberto Nieves as the new 24th District Police Commander. Commander Nieves has served as a captain in the 12th Police District on Chicago’s near west side.
Commander Waldera’s familiarity with the 24th District will serve us well in his new position as head of the Narcotics Division. I congratulate him on his new position and look forward to continuing to work with him. Superintendent McCarthy has provided the 24th Police District with some first-rate police commanders and I expect Commander Nieves will continue to provide that same level of service to the 24th District.
As soon as Commander Nieves settles into his new position, I will sponsor a community meeting to introduce him to our neighborhood.
I look forward to working with Commander Nieves in his new role here in Rogers Park.
