What is the Police District Council?

  • In July 2021, the Chicago City Council passed an ordinance creating a new model for police oversight, accountability, and public safety. The ordinance creates two bodies: a citywide Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability, with power to advance systemic reform, and District Councils, which will be elected in each police district and work to improve policing and public safety in the district. The Commission and District Councils will bring police officers and Chicago residents together to plan, prioritize, and build mutual trust; strengthen the police accountability system; give Chicagoans a meaningful new role in oversight; and explore and advance alternative effective approaches to public safety.
  • In February, residents in each of 22 Police Districts elected three representatives to District Councils These 66 people will them form community based programs to improve community based policing. Those 66 people will also elect the seven Commissioners who will have authority to drive the direction of CPD, including the role of selecting candidates for Police Superintendent and a significant role to play with COPA and the Police Board.
