Chicago's next police superintendent will be either the woman running the Aurora Police Department or one of two men: the retired Dallas police chief or a fast-rising Chicago police deputy chief.

Ziman recently tested positive for the coronavirus and is leading her suburban department -- about the size of one Chicago police district -- from her home.
