Rewrite Expired Police Contracts in Chicago: Cara Hendrickson and Adam Gross Demand Action in Holding Police Accountable

In a city where the largest police union has been operating under an expired contract for 3 years, BPI's Cara Hendrickson ('03), Executive Director, and Adam Gross ('95), Director, Justice Reform and Police Accountability, were consulted for a Chicago Sun Times editorial regarding limiting collective bargaining measures in rewriting police contracts that preclude civilian oversight and exclude accountability ("Rewrite Chicago's Police Union Contracts to Restore a Shaken Public's Confidence," June 7). Adam: "What we have done, in effect, is decide not to know about police misconduct — to make it hard to learn the truth and to remember it." "Inaction has a consequence," said Cara.
