Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has made his first public appearance since he was hospitalized and treated for blocked arteries.

On Wednesday, McCarthy appeared with Mayor Rahm Emanuel at a ceremony to mark the graduation of 77 police recruits and promotions of more than 100 members of the department.

Before the ceremony, McCarthy told the Chicago Sun-Times that he "technically" remains on medical leave until the end of June and that his doctors have told him to take it easy. He says he does not know when he will return to work full-time.

The 55-year-old McCarthy drove himself to the hospital on June 5. He underwent a procedure to clear totally and partially blocked arteries. He was released from the hospital later that week.
