COPA CONCLUDES INVESTIGATION INTO FATAL OFFICER-INVOLVED SHOOTING OF ADAM TOLEDO
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) has delivered its Final Summary Report (FSR) and investigative materials, as required by ordinance, to the Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department regarding the officer involved shooting death of Adam Toledo, which occurred March 29, 2021, near 2400 S. Sawyer. COPA concluded the investigation into the actions of the involved officers, including the use of deadly force, within 13 months of the incident.
COPA’s ordinance requires the Superintendent to respond within 60 days, though the Superintendent may request to extend the review period for up to 30 additional days, for a total review period not to exceed 90 days.
The Superintendent’s response to any COPA recommendations of discipline or other remedial action, if applicable, will determine the extent of the additional review processes that follow. These review processes may include, but are not limited to, review by the City of Chicago Department of Law, hearing before the Chicago Police Board, grievance filings, and arbitration.
COPA will post its FSR, which will include COPA’s analysis of the evidence and investigative findings and recommendations, on its website upon the conclusion of the Superintendent’s review or, if applicable, following service of disciplinary charges by the Department of Law on any involved officer.
COPA has been in contact with the Toledo family, through their representatives, and we ask for patience as the investigation moves through the post-investigation review processes.
