A Better CPD For Everyone

The consent decree builds upon a series of proactive reforms introduced in 2017, and serves as our roadmap to build and restore trust with our communities; strengthen our commitments to supervision, accountability and transparency; and provide the best training, equipment and resources our officers need and deserve.

The input from our community partners, and our officers, is vitally important in helping shape, reform and implement policies that will make CPD a better Department for officers and the communities we serve.
We are already seeing real change throughout our Department as a result of the reforms we have implemented.

Annual in-service training, has increased to 32 mandatory hours for each of our 13,400 officers. We’ve tripled the number of clinicians providing mental health support for our officers.

We have a clear written agreement with Chicago public schools on the roles of officers in schools.

We also overhauled our organizational structure to prioritize consent decree compliance under the newly created Office of Constitutional Policing and Reform.

We welcome you to join us in making CPD a better department for all of Chicago.
