Consent Decree and Input

Consent Decree and Input

To ensure that the final consent decree meets the needs of Chicago’s communities and police officers, the Attorney General’s Office is seeking input from Chicagoans on the draft consent decree by August 17, 2018.

You can read the draft consent decree and a consent decree fact sheet to learn more before submitting your comments. Your input will be reviewed and carefully considered by the Attorney General’s Office and the City of Chicago in the process of revising the consent decree. The Attorney General’s Office and the City will present the revised consent decree to the federal judge who is overseeing the Attorney General’s lawsuit. The judge may then hold hearings in court and will ultimately decide whether to approve the consent decree.

There are a number of ways you can submit your comments on the draft consent decree. You can email your feedback to or call the Attorney General’s Office at 1.833.243.1498 and leave a message with your comments. You can also submit your comments in the comment box below or mail or fax your comments to the following address:
