In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Chicago has joined the State of Illinois in issuing a Stay at Home order effective Saturday, March 21st at 5pm CT. In addition, City of Chicago facilities are closed to the public. Staff are prioritizing essential services to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. As such, we may be delayed in responding to non-essential inquiries and service requests. To stay up to date on the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 response, please visit the City Coronavirus Response Center site.
The Police Board holds a regular public meeting once a month. The Superintendent of Police (or his designee) and the Chief Administrator of the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (or her designee) will be at the meetings.
Members of the public are invited to attend and are welcome to address questions or comments to the Board. Prior sign-up is required of those wishing to address the Board; to add your name to the list of speakers, please contact the Board's office at 312.742.4194 or Carisa.Boatman@cityofchicago.org by 3:00pm of the day of the meeting, or simply sign up in person at the meeting location up to 15 minutes before the meeting begins.
To ensure responsiveness to community input received at the meetings, the Board has created a new policy (in English and Spanish) for documenting, tracking, and responding to the public's questions and comments. Reports of responses to community input will be posted below each month.
The Board's regular monthly meetings are on the third Thursday of the month (see below). Unless otherwise announced in advance, the meetings are scheduled to begin at 7:30pm and take place at Chicago Public Safety Headquarters, 3510 South Michigan Avenue.
Also appearing below are links to the transcripts of the meetings and the material made available at the meeting--the "Blue Book" that includes the meeting agenda, minutes, statistics on disciplinary matters, and a list of CPD directives issued by the Superintendent.
