Chicago Ridge boosted salaries for its police chief and a deputy before they retired. Over the next decade, salary benefits for them could reach $2 million, paid out from the village's underfunded police pension.
Shortly before Tim Baldermann retired as Chicago Ridge's police chief, the town boosted his salary by more than $70,000, handing the 44-year-old as big a paycheck in retirement as he earned full time.
