Statement From Mayor Rahm Emanuel And Superintendent Eddie Johnson On Public Safety Reform

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

"We can only speak for our intentions, we can't speak for the federal government's. The reforms we have made over the past year are built on the principles of partnership and trust between our residents and our officers, and they laid the foundation for the 2017 reform plan we outlined just a few weeks ago. Through these ongoing reforms we will ensure our officers have the training and support they need to do a tough job well, we will strengthen the relationship with our residents, and we will make our city a stronger, safer place.  Reform is in our self-interest and that is why Chicago has been, is, and always will be committed to reform."
