Plan builds upon ongoing reform efforts and provides road-map for increased safety, officer training, and public accountability
CHICAGO – Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson announced today the next steps in Departmental reform that emphasizes a commitment to better community policing, officer training, crisis intervention, supervision, officer wellness, and public accountability. To advance this effort, CPD has released its 2018 Next Steps for Reform framework that builds upon the original reform plan released in 2017. The 2018 plan will address many of the findings of both the Department of Justice as well as Mayor Emanuel’s Police Accountability Task Force (PATF).
“CPD is on a path to reform and we will address the challenges we face to provide better service to the City and better resources to our police officers,” said Superintendent Johnson. “The 2018 Next Steps for Reform framework is our continued promise to the communities we serve that CPD is serious about addressing the historical challenges we face. This year we will launch a re-imagined community policing plan, in-service training for every police officer, additional Crisis Intervention Training, and focus on officer wellness to ensure that as we make Chicago safer, we are building trust with Chicagoans in every neighborhood.”
