Obama's Chicago Home Losing Police Protection

The Chicago Police Department is pulling its overtime detail that guards President Barack Obama's Kenwood home on Oct. 1, department officials announced Tuesday.

The announcement comes after discussions with the Secret Service, the agency responsible for guarding the president, over how best to protect the Obamas' Chicago home.

The Chicago Police Department has spent over $2.2 million guarding the residence from Obama's election through July, according to the Tribune. The city expects to recover $1.5 million of that total from the federal government.
