FOIA: CPD Do Not Call Officers

On July 17th the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office released their Do Not Call List made up of many CPD officers who for various reasons the office will not longer call as witnesses. While the existence of the list is an important step forward in accountability for CPD officers the list itself if very limited because it doesn’t provide any further information about the officers.

In a recent episode of our YouTube series Good & Bad Justice Journalism we detail the massive shortcomings in the media’s reporting on the release of this list. It is embedded below.

As we state in the video we do not trust the Chicago media to provide the public with the details on even the very basic facts of the CPD officers that made the list. Thus, we have filed the FOIAs detailed below to get the information the public needs.

Tracy has nearly two decades of experience researching and working within criminal justice systems. When Tracy began pursuing a career dedicate to system reform, he found that no single organization existed to promote evidence-based discussions among law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Recognizing that citizens in Chicago deserved the right to demand transparency in their criminal justice system, Siska established the Chicago Justice Project. He received his Master of Arts degree in Criminal Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
