Public Meetings of the Police Board

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. 

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 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.
