The Chicago Police Department has spent at least $2.2 million on security for President Barack Obama's home on the city's South Side since his election in November.
Documents released by the city in response to the Chicago Tribune's Freedom of Information request show that the federal government will reimburse the department for $1.5 million of the costs.
But the documents indicate that the expense of protecting the home since Obama's inauguration in January isn't scheduled to be paid back. That totaled nearly $650,000 through the end of April.
U.S. Secret Service spokesman Darrin Blackford says it is "not equipped or funded" to provide such reimbursement. Blackford says the Secret Service relies instead on the assistance of its local law-enforcement partners.
