CHICAGO – Chicago Police Department (CPD) Superintendent Eddie Johnson announced today the next steps
in Departmental reform that emphasizes a commitment to strengthen community policing, officer training,
manpower, supervision, and public accountability. Using a transparent framework for reform as a guide, CPD
will engage in a multi-year implementation process to continue to support officers in maintaining the highest
professional standards while they fight against gun violence. The next steps build on reforms of the past year
and address many of the findings by the Department of Justice and Mayor Emanuel’s Police Accountability
Task Force (PATF) reports.
