According to a memo obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) is preparing to release recordings of about 100 Chicago Police shootings and uses of stun guns next week.
The recordings are “tentatively scheduled” for a June 2 release and include police shootings, uses of stun guns, as well as incidents of bodily harm to individuals while in police custody. Dispatch calls, dashcam and bodycam audio and video, pod camera footage and 911 calls will all be among the recordings released. All of the recordings reportedly involve open investigations being conducted by IPRA.
An IPRA spokeswoman declined to comment. The original memo, which was sent out Thursday, May 26 by Gerald Hollowell, deputy director of 911 operations at the city’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications, warns employees that in some instances their day-to-day job performance will be up and available for all to see on the web.
