Police Accountability

Our focus on increasing police accountability in Chicago continues with three initiatives: (1) collaboration with the Grassroots Alliance for Police Accountability (GAPA) to establish independent community oversight of the Chicago Police Department (CPD) through the passage of a city ordinance; (2) partnership with the Coalition for Police Contracts Accountability (CPCA) to demand changes to the police union contracts currently being negotiated to provide greater police accountability; and (3) coalition with the ACLU-Illinois and four other organizations in a lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department and development of a court-enforced consent decree.
