As a result of these mass layoffs, The Exoneration Project says 15 police officers currently working in Chicago, with links to Watts tactical team, have been hired by the Chicago Police Department. The Cook County Procuratorate also told Chicago police that it would stop using statements from Watts-bound officers.
