If idle hands are the devil's workshop, former Police Superintendent Phil Cline seems to be keeping the tools put away in his early retirement. He hopped straight over to the Executive Director slot at the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation (an organization he helped get off the ground as Superintendent) and there's a loose rumor/ allegation over at SCC that he'll benefit from a $96,678 consulting contract with Cook County.
