Chicago Police Department Could Reprimand One Thousand Cops For Peeking At Report
The Chicago Police Department is considering disciplinary actions against a huge number of its officers for sneaking a peek at the arrest reports of two fellow cops.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, over 1,000 within the department have accessed the records, which detail allegations that two officers sexually assaulted a 22-year-old woman in Rogers Park.
Those officers looked at the records “without reason or authorization to do so,” according to an Internal Affairs memo scanned by the Second City Cop blog. “Access to information is restricted to official police business,” the memo states. “Access of information for personal or other reasons is prohibited.”
