CHICAGO – CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson addressed community members and police officers today to announce the Department’s new set of use of force policies, which emphasizes sanctity of life, de-escalation and accountability. The new set of policies is based off of feedback from two public comment periods, numerous community meetings and officer and supervisor focus groups. The policies provide clear direction for officers when the use of force is permitted and the Department will engage in an accelerated training schedule to ensure that every officer has the comprehensive training and support necessary to implement the policy.
“CPD’s new use of force policy represents a major step forward for the Department, reflecting national best practices and input from officers and the community to truly be called a policy created by Chicagoans for Chicagoans,” said Superintendent Johnson. “It is among the first examples of what I consider to be the vital partnership we need in our city where officers and residents work together to shape how we make our streets safer.” For More Information Click Here
