Chicago Police Reform Police Reform

With domestic police violence constantly on the rise, and with extremely high gun violence in Chicago, the demand for reform is at an all- time high. However, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has shied away from these reforms in the pursuit of what the Trump administration considers to be bigger issues. In response to this, Chicago police have vowed to “bolster community policing, implement a field training officer for new cops, revise the department’s use of force policy and other changes in the months ahead”. With almost 900 murders and 4800 shooting victims in the last 14 months, Chicago is a delicate situation that has to be handled with care and vigilance.
