Of the officers, 53 have graduated from the Chicago Police Academy. They'll be deployed to several neighborhoods this week.

Emanuel has said that 500 total police officers would be redeployed to police beats. Last month, he said 150 officers were shifted to police beats.

Chicago police say more cops on the streets means building better relationships.
