m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 12/28
They are moving onto 9. Report by the Chief Administrator of the Civilian Office of Police Accountability. They gave a # for the amount of officer involved shootings this month (was not able to catch it) & shared that the officers helped feed the migrants that arrived recently.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 13/28
There are Zoom issues in which the speaker is being cut out. They are now discussing the consent decree and operational compliance, "tremendous upticks" towards reaching the goal of complete compliance with COPA chicago.gov/city/en/depts/…
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 14/28
This week they are continuing to deliver critical training to officers & are also doing research on how to respond to officer shootings.

You can read more information about the City of Chicago’s Compliance with the Consent Decree here: cpdmonitoringteam.com
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 16/28
They are now moving onto 10. Report of review of minutes and recordings of past closed meetings
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 17/28
The previous meeting item just reiterating the city's policy on making sure meetings like CPD are public. They are now moving onto 11. Policy regarding the Board’s power to adopt CPD rules & regulations. They said they did not receive any public comments on the draft agenda.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 18/28
They vote to pass the previous item. They move onto 12. Superintendent’s request to solicit funds for CPD’s annual awards ceremony. They unaminously vote "aye" & pass the motion of the superintendent's request to solicit funds.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 19/28
They move onto 13. Questions and comments from the public. Cory representing the Chicago Youth Council promotes a 3v3 basketball tournament they are hosting on Jan. 29 to foster community engagement.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 20/28
The next speaker talks about the need for more accountability from the police due to how money and legal weapons are being taken from people's homes, as well as issues about assault. They are disappointed in the presentation by Tina b/c it does not tell us what we need to know.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 21/28
They want to end arbitrary arrests and stand firmly by Elijah, whose arrest and treatment was unnecessary. "We do not like the systemic racism we found in the court system" in which their weapon was taken and not returned. Ms Noel's time is up.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 22/28
Elijah Hudson is up next, who is a city worker with the metropolitan district. He is also disappointed about procedures & what they should say to the citizen at a traffic stop. Elijah said it was glossed over, & he is still in the process of trying to receive his firearm (cont.)
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 23/28
from the 18th district. The charges were dropped by the state attorney & so there is no reason for these charges. He says he's a city worker & there is no reason that his firearm has not been returned to him b/c it is legal. He has also been pulled over by cops for his firearm.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 24/28
He has completed all the necessary procedures to own the firearm legally, and he was told his firearm was destroyed by the CPD. He says it is not fair that he is profiled for being Black with a legal firearm.
m e n d y (she/they) @ngogejat 25/28
The last speaker on the list is Moore and he does not comment when asked. The meeting is adjourned at 8:16 PM.
