    Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans to disband the Independent Police Review Authority, the Chicago agency responsible for investigating allegations of police misconduct.

    The mayor announced his plan in op-ed columns for both the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times.

    He writes “it is clear that a totally new agency is required to rebuild trust in investigations of officer involved shootings and the most serious allegations of police misconduct.”

    Emanuel plans to create a new Public Safety Inspector General to audit and monitor policing in Chicago. He will also create a new Community Safety Oversight Board “comprised of Chicago city residents.”
