Attend a Webinar to Learn How the Chicago, Illinois Police Department Addressed Delayed Police Responses to Emergency Calls in Minority Neighborhoods
Join the Justice Clearinghouse for the “Race, Ethnicity, and Police Deployment: A Look at Patrol Staffing in Chicago” webinar on Wednesday, September 11 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET. During this webinar, participants will learn about a staffing assessment study conducted on the Chicago, Illinois Police Department to address delayed police responses to emergency calls in Chicago’s racially and ethnically diverse communities.
Chicago is one of the most diverse cities in the United States, yet it still remains highly segregated. As a result, Chicago police officers face constant demands to address crime and disorder throughout the city. This causes delayed police responses to emergency calls in highly minority concentrated neighborhoods. In response to the Illinois American Civil Liberties Union suing the city of Chicago in 2011, a county judge ordered a staffing study focused on workload-based staffing analysis for the Chicago, Illinois Police Department Bureau of Patrol.
This webinar will go over the analytical strategy, data, and results of the conducted study, as well as how a deployment among large police agencies makes it difficult to identify who benefits and loses from the system.
Register for the webinar today.
