CHICAGO (CBS) – Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan will publish a Draft Decree amending far-reaching changes to the Chicago Police Department this afternoon
Agreement includes changes in police force, training, supervision, discipline, supervision, and more. Emanuel, Johnson and Madigan will release the document on Friday at 2pm.
The last crux of the negotiations between City Hall and Madigan was whether officers have to submit a report whenever they point their weapons at someone. While the officers now have to report back whenever they use force, they do not have to do that when they pull their weapon and point it at someone.
The approval decree will not only prescribe the police reform of the city in writing. This means that the reforms can be enforced before a federal court.
The reforms are the answer to a scathing report from the Justice Department last year that found systematic police maltreatment of minorities in Chicago and a "poorly qualified" training of officers
Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Chicago Department of Justice Department of Justice investigations routinely uncovered officers Englisch: www.moviesfilmonline.com / en / movies / oliver – twist In order to negotiate a consent decree, but when the Trump administration withdrew from this agreement, and the mayor negotiated an out of court settlement for reform, Madigan sued the city to enforce court order.
In New Orleans, a consent decree that was introduced five years ago had a dramatic impact on brutality complaints in The Big Easy.
An overview report last year said: "The surveillance team has not detected any lawsuits in the past two years that point to excessive use of force."  An investigation of 23 divisions under consent decrees, including New Orleans, found complaints dramatic – from 23 to 36% per year in every city.
Sheila Bedi, a professor at Northwestern Law School, is part of the Negotiation Negotiations. She says she expects a similar outcome in Chicago.
"The city of Chicago should expect to pay far less in police disputes because police officers will be forced to abide by the constitution," said Bedi.
From 2004 to 2016, taxpayers in Chicago dumped $ 662 million in police bills and payments continue to come.
Last year, a $ 44.7 million record hearing by a federal jury, the officer Patrick Kelly shot Michael La Porta, but told investigators It was suicide
"It will give an account, there will be control, it's an extreme important tool, "Bedi said, referring to the informed consent procedure.
A New Orleans report also pointed to persistent problems with illegal stops
"As compliance requires a significant change in culture from the department's historical practices, this item will necessarily take longer," the report says ,
"It's going to be a 'We have a long time to clarify what's wrong with the Chicago Police Department,' said Bedi.
Once the draft approval decision has been submitted to the Federal Court, a public hearing on the proposed reforms will take place before US District Judge Robert Dow decides to approve them.
