Public Meetings of the Police Board

The Police Board holds a regular public meeting once a month. The following City officials (or their designees) are required to be at the Board's meetings: Superintendent of Police, Chief Administrator of the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, Chief of the Chicago Police Department's Bureau of Internal Affairs, and the Deputy Inspector General for Public Safety. 

Community Input

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 up to 15 minutes before the meeting begins.

To ensure responsiveness to community input received at the meetings, the Board has created a 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. 

2021 Regular Meetings

The Board's regular monthly meetings are on the third Thursday of the month (except for September). Unless otherwise announced in advance, each meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30pm. Whether the meeting will be held in person or remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be noted in an Alert on this website posted at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting. CAN-TV carries each meeting live on Chicago cable channel 27 and on its website
