Roughly a hundred people attended a City Council committee meeting on reforming the Chicago Police Department at Westinghouse College Prep last night, with a majority of the crowd again calling for some type of civilian-led board to oversee the Chicago Police Department. Behind the scenes earlier that day, members of the Community Renewal Society (CRS), a faith-based social justice community organization, met with members of the Emanuel administration to discuss the administration’s proposed police reforms, which CRS members say are largely based on the FAIR COPS ordinance drafted by CRS and introduced earlier this year by Ald. Jason Ervin (28).

Attendance: Chair Jason Ervin (28), Rod Sawyer (6), Patrick Daley Thompson (11), Rick Munoz (22), Michael Scott, Jr. (24), Emma Mitts (37)
