1,000 Chicago Cops Could Be Disciplined For Viewing Sex Case File


More than 1,000 Chicago police officers could face discipline for viewing the arrest reports of two fellow cops accused of sexually assaulting a woman, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. The police union says the officers did nothing wrong.

Last month, two officers were stripped of their police powers amid allegations they had sex with an intoxicated woman in her home and in a police SUV while on-duty. A department-wide memo from the Internal Affairs unit said accessing the electronic report constituted “misuse of department equipment.” The memo warned that “access of information for personal or other reasons is strictly prohibited” and said officers had accessed and printed the reports “without reason or authorization to do so.” It recommended that those officers get a written reprimand that would stay on their personnel record for a year.
