Chicago PD Must Release Info On Police Misconduct



Published on Mar 14, 2014

” The public is getting more checks on police, according to two new court rulings. In Illinois, a state appeals court has ruled that the Chicago Police Department can no longer keep private information about police misconduct, and will have to release that information as a matter of public record.

In Maryland, a lawsuit settlement means Baltimore police officers can no longer do anything about citizens using cell phones and other cameras to record police interactions. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan takes a look at these two cases and the public’s ability to hold law enforcement accountable for their actions.”
