HeadlineJan 13, 2020

An Illinois judge has ordered the Chicago Police Department to turn over documents detailing nearly five decades of misconduct allegations against police officers. Judge Alison Conlon ordered the police department to turn over the files after ruling that the department had “willfully and intentionally failed to comply” with the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. The documents will be published on the website of the Invisible Institute, which covers police misconduct and abuse in Chicago.
