(WBBM Newsradio) – The public is invited to suggest ideas about Chicago police reform through a new website.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the website — at www.chicagopoliceconsentdecree.org – will accept input from Chicago residents as her office develops a court-enforceable consent decree. The consent decree will incorporate recommendations from the U.S. Justice Department, which reviewed the Chicago Police Department in the wake of the Laquan McDonald scandal.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Warmer Sunday, But April Snow Possible Tuesday
