In a Major Step toward Federal Oversight of Police Reform, Community Groups Enter into Agreement with City of Chicago and Illinois Attorney General.
Groups secure rights to enforce consent decree that will focus on CPD’s use of force against people with disabilities, Black and Latino Chicagoans.
“The Memorandum of Agreement signed today is an important step in the long road to police reform in Chicago. Our goals are for a robust consent decree to be entered by a court, and for that commitment to be enforced. This Agreement allows community groups to act as watchdogs during the long-term reform process,” said Kathy Hunt Muse, counsel for the Communities United, plaintiffs.
