A new report from Chicago's Inspector General is detailing the impact of canceled days off on city police.

The report found that Chicago Police Department members are working an average of 11 or more consecutive days at a time, Fox 32 reports.

The numbers in the Inspector General's report are very concerning and although Police Superintendent David Brown seems to have misunderstood the contents of it, he still says the department is working to improve the situation.

The IG's report says between April and May, ten percent of Chicago police officers — or roughly 1,000 — were ordered to work 11 days in a row.

Superintendent Brown says while many officers were scheduled to work 11-day stretches, not all of them ended up doing so, and many of those who did have volunteered.
