Throughout the month of August, City Bureau Documenters and the Invisible Institute will cover and transcribe each of the community meetings centered on redesigning Chicago's police investigation agency, the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA). The IPRA Tracker collects unpublished reports, law enforcement documents, proposed ordinances and community-oriented coverage in an effort to create and preserve context for public use.
As the public and policy-makers re-shape the foundations of police accountability in Chicago, the Police Monitor Tracker will be updated as a tool for public input and information throughout the reform process. The process to replace or redefine IPRA's role is expected to culminate in September
