The Chicago Police Department on Monday introduced its Use of Force Dashboard, a publicly accessible collection of every police incident that involved an officer's use of force dating back to 2015.
According to WTTW News, the Chicago Police Department said that the online use-of-force tracking tool dashboard is a "central component" of its ongoing transparency efforts.
"We know how important creating a culture of transparency is when it comes to restoring faith and trust with the communities we protect and serve on a daily basis,” CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson said in a statement.
The dashboard indicates that since 2017, the department has responded to more than 7.8 million dispatch calls, arrested nearly a quarter million individuals, and recorded 13,872 use-of-force incidents in that timespan.
The Use of Force Dashboard will be updated monthly.
