Mayor Emanuel and Chicago Fire Department District Chief Patrick J. Kehoe (Duty Disability from injuries in the line of duty)
Chicago Fire Department tab for disability payments: $27 million
There are even more Chicago Fire Department personnel on disability leave than police officers, though the fire department has fewer than half the number of employees the police department has. That’s the latest finding of a Chicago Sun-Times investigation into police and fire disability. Among the 390 firefighters and paramedics on disability is Patrick J. Kehoe, a former district chief who gets $91,113 a year tax-free — and who did a campaign commerical for Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
