Chicago Police Department Responds To Whistleblower Claims Of Officers' Misconduct

Chicago Police Department responds to allegations made by whistleblowers against a group of corrupt cops.
Posted on May 24, 2019 | 06:00pm
Chicago Police Officers Shannon Spalding and Danny Echeverria worked undercover to expose criminal activity by fellow officers. With their help, two corrupt police officers were arrested and so far more than 60 wrongfully convicted men and women have been exonerated. 

CBS contacted the Chicago Police Department for comment and they provided the following statement. 

There is absolutely zero tolerance for misconduct and illegal activity within the Chicago Police Department, and officers who are dishonest and disrespectful will be held accountable. All complaints received against officers are reviewed and retained by the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA). Case are also forwarded to CPD Bureau of Internal Affairs as appropriate.

Due to active litigation, we are unable to provide further comment, nor would it be appropriate for us to do so.
