Chicago Police Department FOIA Index Crimes

Round TablesHere is the content of our latest FOIA requesting data on part 1 index crimes from the Chicago Police Department because they still have refused to publish annual reports for the years 2011-2016. If they respond the same way they have been responding to our FOIAs it is a very good chance this FOIA will be added to our ongoing lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department.

A. The total number of sworn personnel employed by the Chicago Police Department on January 1st for the years 2000-2018. This should includes all ranks from Superintendent through patrol officer. Please break down the yearly numbers by rank.
B.  For the years of 2000-2017 please provide the total number of UCR Part 1 Offenses.
