CHICAGO — Interim Chicago Police Superintendent Charlie Beck is making some bold moves in his short time here.

Beck met Tuesday with Chicago clergy leaders concerned about his agenda.

Specifically, they are worried about Beck’s order that does away with the police department’s policy of merit promotion.

Critics said merit promotion has lead to widespread cronyism.

Religious leaders told Beck they’re worried that replacing the system with test-based promotions might may lead to less diversity in the upper ranks of the police department.
