Hi, 
 
Recently, the Chicago City Inspector General called the Independent Police Review Authority's (IPRA) report on the Chicago Police Department's use of force as both inaccurate and incomplete. (Click here to view the Inspector General's report.) Which is why now is the time to ensure investigations about alleged police misconduct are done responsibly and correctly. 

As a member of the City Council's North Side Police Accountability Subcommittee, I would like you to join me at a City Council hearing on proposals to reform the police accountability system next Tuesday, Aug. 9th, 6:30 p.m. at Senn High School, 5900 N Glenwood (at Thorndale). To reduce all violence in our city, we must restore trust between our communities and the police. Please attend so you can be a part of the solution. Many police officers are dedicated public servants that are committed to performing their duties lawfully to make Chicago a safer place for all of us. I am committed to helping restore trust for the safety of everyone.   

What: City Council's North Side Police Accountability Subcommittee Hearing
When: Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 6:30pm
Where: Senn High School, 5900 N Glenwood (at Thorndale)

I hope to see many of you there, but if you can't make this meeting, please email me your ideas at info@james46.org. I want to hear from you.
   
    Best,
