NAACP to police: Just smile

Illinois NAACP President Teresa Haley asked her granddaughter what police can do to be more approachable.

“They should just smile,” the girl said. Could it be that simple?

Haley agreed to pose for a “Selfie for Support” in a program sponsored by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. She was smiling. So was the deputy chief with her. And the program got some TV coverage this week on a Chicago TV station.

Teresa Haley, president of the Illinois NAACP, poses with Park Ridge Deputy Chief Lou Jogmen in a “Selfies for Support” promotion. Reporter Craig Wall tells the story on Chicago’s Fox 32.
