The US Department of Justice has asked that we issue the following message to our members:
"As part of our investigation of the Chicago Police Department, the Department of Justice will hold office hours on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, from 0930 to 1530. The location is: The Federal Executive Board Conference Room, Metcalf Federal Building 77 W. Jackson Blvd, Suite 2115 Chicago, IL 60604 This is an opportunity for CPD members to confer privately, in person, with DOJ representatives.
Appointments are not necessary, but are encouraged for the sake of efficiency. To make an appointment, please contact Jaclyn Weiner at Jaclyn.Weiner@usdoj.gov or (202) 307-6913. Conversations we have as part of our investigation, are confidential and we do not disclose the identity of anyone who speaks with us unless the DOJ is later required to do so by law.
It is important that we hear from all interested parties, including CPD members. We are investigating officer wellness and CPD members are uniquely situated to offer testimony about wellness issues, as well as the other aspects of our investigation.
We encourage any member who wants to be heard, on any topic, to take advantage of this opportunity. We also invite members to contact us by phone or to arrange a private, in person, conversation at a location of the CPD member’s choosing. Contact us directly at the email address or phone number listed above. Please note that this will not constitute a tour of duty, nor will overtime be authorized."
