Database of Chicago Police Misconduct Records

To be released next week: a database of Chicago police misconduct records. “The Chicago Police Database, named the Citizens Police Data Project, which goes live on November 10, was created as part of a joint project with the Invisible Institute, a journalistic production company. It includes 54,581 complaints filed against 8,337 officers, including every allegation of police misconduct within the Chicago Police Department filed between March 2011 and March 2015.” Eventually the database may include misconduct accusations going back to 1967.
