What Policies is the Commission working on?

This is a draft directive by the Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability. Review and Comment on the Commission's Draft Directive to the Chicago Police Department.

he draft directive amends the Chicago Police Department’s General Order G01-03 (“Department Directives System”). Under the draft directive, if CPD seeks to collect and use gang data, it will need to enact a policy governing that activity in the form of a General Order and not in the form of a Special Order. The law requires that General Orders are reviewed and approved by the Commission before taking effect.

The Commission will be accepting public comment on the draft directive. Please send comments to CommunityCommissionPublicComment@cityofchicago.org

The Commission will carefully review all public comments and may make changes before voting to adopt bylaws at its February or March meeting.
