CPD Consent Decree
Last week, the Offices of Mayor Emanuel and Illinois Attorney General Madigan released the Chicago Police Department consent decree, http://chicagopoliceconsentdecree.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Illinois-v.-Chicago-Consent-Decree-Draft-for-Public-Review-2018-7-27.pdf. It follows reforms and oversight measures for the CPD that include a new Deputy Inspector General for Public Safety, Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) and the Community Oversight Board still under development.
At the moment, it is open for review by any organization or individual. Comments and suggestions are being accepted, http://chicagopoliceconsentdecree.org/consent-decree-and-input, until August 17, 2018.
While I value your opinions, the Mayor’s Office and the Office of the Ill Attorney General want your input directly. Please contact them at the website provided above.
