PERF Session in Chicago

On Tuesday, 3 October 2016, FOP President Gene Ryan and Past President Robert Cherry joined the Police Commissioner and members of his command at a day-long work session hosted by the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).

The purpose of the session was to allow the BPD and Chicago Police Department an opportunity to discuss the challenges facing our police officers as we both work towards a consent decree with the United States. Also in attendance were representative from the NYPD, LAPD and New Orleans Police Department – who shared with the BPD and CPD their insight and crime fighting strategies while working under a consent decree.

The FOP welcomes the opportunity to be engaged in this conversation as we prepare to negotiate our own consent decree and in the coming days, the FOP will be publishing our own recommendations to the Department of Justice to negotiate within the consent decree.
