The consent decree mandates a series of reforms throughout our Department, from community policing and use of force, to officer wellness and crisis intervention.
These mandates have already facilitated notable improvements in the amount of training provided to each of our 13,400 officers.

Annual in-service training that was non-existent for our rank-and-file officers has now increased to 32 mandatory hours for each of our officers.

As we continue reviewing and updating our policies and practices while ensuring each of our officers are properly trained and prepared, we welcome you to join us in making CPD a better department for all of Chicago.
