Chicago PD videos of shootings get timeline

A Cook County judge this week set a rolling schedule for the Chicago Police Department to release documents related to fatal police-involved shootings going back to Jan. 1, 2011.

Monday’s decision from Circuit Judge Kathleen G. Kennedy builds off a Sept. 16 ruling which ordered CPD to release the records — including audio and video recordings — the Better Government Association sought in a Freedom of Information Act request.

Kennedy’s order requires the police department to produce the records on a rolling basis “for each investigative file as the review is completed.”
