(Chicago Sun Times) — Philadelphia Police Chief Charles Ramsey disclosed Tuesday he has already talked to Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel about the possibility of coming home to run the Chicago Police Department, and he’s “intrigued” by the idea.  “The fact that I started in Chicago, that I left and have since worked in two different cities. The thought of maybe coming back fourteen years later — I don’t know that it’s ever happened before in Chicago,” said Ramsey, 60.  “I’m intrigued by the possibility of coming back home. I still have family in Chicago. Both sets of grandparents are buried in Chicago. When the Eagles played the Bears, I was rooting for the Bears.”  Ramsey said the contact was initiated by Emanuel with the prospect of more discussions to come. They talked about the mayor-elect’s “clear vision” for a Police Department with beat officers as the backbone and about Emanuel’s determination to breathe new life into a community policing program that Ramsey got rolling.  They talked about the need to restore morale that plummeted under newly-departed Supt.
