Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police union contract with the city expired June 30 of this year. In addition to exploring City Bureau’s latest Tracker Project—the #FOPtracker—we’ll have Chicago-based journalist Adeshina Emmanuel in the Public Newsroom for a presentation on his reporting around the city’s collective bargaining agreement with police.
This hands-on workshop with break down and demystify the police union contract as the city negotiates a new agreement with police in the coming weeks. We’ll also have experts weigh in to give Chicagoans a better understanding of how the Fraternal Order of Police impacts, affects and influences police accountability locally and nationwide.
