This Section reviews personnel and community-based complaints of officer misconduct. Section employees may produce written reports that are presented to the Board of Police Commissioners, and are subsequently published here on the OIG website. Such reports have included reviews of the Department’s “Quarterly Discipline Reports,” in which the Section examined Department-administered discipline. The Section also has produced annual reports on specific topics including workplace misconduct (i.e., retaliation and discrimination) and biased policing. The Section also conducts Case Reviews in which the OIG reviews the Department’s misconduct investigations. Finally, the Section conducts investigations into allegations of misconduct by the Chief of Police.
