A Chicago police union is advising officers against working "non-mandatory overtime" during the Labor Day weekend.
The Fraternal Order of Police issued a memo to officers, saying September 2 through September 5 will be declared "FOP Unity Days."
"In order to show unity and to protest the continued disrespect of Chicago Police officers and the killing of law enforcement officers across our country, we are requesting FOP members to refrain from volunteering to work for any and all special secondary and other types of non-mandatory overtime employment for the entire Labor Day weekend," the memo reads.
A Chicago Police Department spokesman issued a response: "Every single officer who serves our city on holiday weekends plays a valued and important role in keeping Chicago safe. We do not expect any disruption in operations for Labor Day weekend."
