Chief Talley
Chief
Born and raised on the west side of Chicago, I’m a 28 year veteran of the Chicago Police Department. I started off in the 13th District, which was where I made a lot of great friends and it was honestly the best time of my life. My time there served as a stepping stone for various other roles I’ve had the privilege of serving in throughout my career, most recently as Deputy Chief of Area 1 (which covers the 2nd, 3rd, 7th, 8th, and 9th districts), and now as the Chief of the Bureau of Internal Affairs where I also oversee the Recruitment & Retention unit. I’m passionate about my City, the Police Department, and the new generation of officers that we are recruiting and training to become Chicago’s finest.

Sergeant Myles
Sergeant
I have been a member of the Chicago Police Department for 14 years. I joined the department after receiving an honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corps. Upon completing the training academy, I was assigned to the 006th District in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood, where I completed my training cycles and later transferred to the 005th District in the Roseland/Pullman Community. During my time there, I had the privilege of working with the Incident and Tactical Teams. After several years, I decided to join the Area South Gun Team. However, I soon realized that it was time to share my knowledge with the newer officers joining the department. For over four years, I had the honor of mentoring, coaching, and training newly minted Probationary Officers. However, a new opportunity presented itself when the Chicago Police Department established a Recruitment Unit to restore its ranks. I was one of the first members to join the unit and currently serve as the Operations Sergeant. It is my privilege to be a part of this effort to strengthen and diversify the department's ranks.

Officer Burnett

I'm considered by my friends to be a solid all-around individual - successful, kind, trustworthy, and vaccinated. Plus, I have a joke for every occasion! I love being social, experiencing different cultures, going out with friends and hosting parties. Very chill, and easy to get along with. I'm open-minded in the sense that if your views/actions don't hurt anyone, basically think or do what you want, we’re all adults. I love to travel, make things, design and renovate houses, and have a talent for turning what others perceive as trash into works of art. As a Police Recruiter I have had the opportunity to work with many diverse personalities, communities, attitudes and demands, which has taught me flexibility and how to accomplish goal. I pride myself on my ability to connect with people from all walks of life and backgrounds regardless of their age, race, gender, or economic status.

Hello, I'm officer Delgado I have been with the Chicago Police Department since December of 2017. I currently have 6 years on the force. I began training in the 022nd district which is located in the south side of Chicago in the Morgan Park area. After training at that location I transitioned to work in the 002nd district which is also located in the south side of the city in the Bronzeville and Hyde Park neighborhoods.
