This post was updated on November 30, 2023 to include the Final Summary Report and Non-concurrence. As part of the non-concurrence process, COPA and the Superintendent agreed to a violation noted for Officer Spires. NOTE: The release of all Final Summary Reports is mandated pursuant to the City of Chicago Municipal Code (Section 2-78-145, viewable here) and the Consent Decree in State of Illinois v. City of Chicago (17-cv-6260, paragraph 499, viewable here). As standard practice, COPA attempts to notify the involved individual and/or their representative of its obligation to post the report to its website.
Pursuant to a court order entered on 3/16/21, in the case of People v. Texroy Phillips, No. 21CR-002533, the Civilian Office of Police Accountability is currently prohibited from releasing materials relative to this incident. COPA remains committed to transparency and the release of video and other materials as outlined within the City’s Video Release Policy. Upon authorization, COPA will facilitate the prompt release of all required materials.
