Thank you for visiting the Chicago Police Department’s public comment forum for the Department Vehicles policy. This directive sets forth Department policy regarding the use of Chicago Police Department vehicles. The policy was revised pursuant to paragraph 167 of the Consent Decree, which reads, “CPD officers will operate their vehicles in a manner that is consistent with CPD policy and training and with the foremost regard for the safety of all persons involved. CPD will periodically include instruction regarding sound vehicle maneuvers in its in-service training regarding use of force. As appropriate, CPD will provide supplemental training guidance regarding dangerous vehicle maneuvers that should be avoided.”
As part of our ongoing mission to grow trust within the communities we serve, CPD will take comments from the public on the Department Vehicles policy for 15 days beginning on February 10, 2020. The comment period will end on February 25, 2020, and CPD will consider public comments before finalizing the directive. Below you will find the draft of the revised Chicago Police Department Department Vehicles policy. For reference, click here to review the existing policy. Thank you again for your continued partnership in building a safer Chicago.
