This is the most idiotic of policies I have seen icon_lol.gif. Although, Aviation Police officers at O'Hare are just as well trained and sent to the Police Academy as regular Chicago Police Officers they are not allowed to carry weapons in the airport terminal. In the event of a terrorist attack or a shooter, they CAN NOT help you they are instructed to RUN, HIDE or seek SHELTER.

Only the Chicago police officers are allowed to carry weapons inside the airport an must be summoned by the Aviation Police in the case of an emergency.

This is good to know when I am making a connection at O'Hare. Amazing what politics and cronyism at Chicago continues.
