Chicago Police Department News

We are live with Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Chicago Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago as they speak about Save Abandoned Babies Month in Illinois. Superintendent Johnson, Commissioner Santiago, and the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation want to raise awareness of the Illinois Abandoned Newborn Protection Act and subsequent Baby Safe Haven Law. Since it was enacted in 2001, at least 126 newborn infants in Illinois have benefited under this law. The law allows a desperate parent to legally relinquish an unharmed newborn 30 days old or younger to staff at any Illinois hospital, police or fire station without fear of prosecution. No questions need to be answered. Tell a friend about the Baby Safe Haven Law. Talk about it. You might save a life. #ILSafeHaven #twill
