The Chicago Police Department will provide clear guidance on policies and procedures for recruiting, hiring, and promoting police officers as part of our commitment to meeting consent decree requirements.

Our promotions policies and practices will include an independent expert assessment of our processes for the ranks of sergeant and lieutenant to ensure transparency and comply with the law and consent decree.

As we continue reviewing and updating our recruitment, hiring and promotion policies and practices, we welcome you to join us in making CPD a better department for all of Chicago.
