 Chicago Police Officer John Bertetto stands outside a boarded-up home while he watches students walk home from Laura Ward Elementary school on the Westside on August 28, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. Bertetto was posted at the school along with other police officers and city workers to provide "safe passage" to students walking to and from the school. The Safe Passage program was started because parents were worried about their children’s safety while they walked to and from school across gang boundaries after the city closed 49 elementary schools and moved the students to nearby schools.
