Chicago City Hall 

121 N LaSalle Dr, Chicago, IL 60602

Suite 201a 

 

The Committee on Public Safety plans to meet at city hall Friday to consider Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s desired appointment of Andrea Zopp to the Chicago Police Board.

The police board currently has a vacancy and has been looking to add its ninth member. For the record-members of the police board hand down verdicts in cases of serious police misconduct. Each appointment has a five year term.

The Community Activist will attend the meeting to address public concern that mostly centered around the fact feel if Emmanuel is allowed the appointment with Zopp the board-then that board would be biased due to the fact Zopp as (Deputy Mayor) has an affiliation with Mayor Emanuel that may potentially prove to be biased.    

While the city met the established guidelines of releasing information about the meeting 48 hours prior, members of the public voiced their concerns that the appointment was a rush-job and the city should slow down and consider community input.

At the meeting Friday morning, Alderman Reboyras decided to recess until Monday at 9:00am– likely due to unexpected media presence and the fact that only two other alderman showed up. Emanuel announced his intention to appoint Zopp in a Nov. 8 press release.

“We all can still agree with the fact that a well-known majority of Chicagoans don’t think the city’s cops treat all citizens fairly and believe a cover-up “code of silence” is widespread in the Police Department, helping drive a record-low approval rating for Mayor Rahm Emanuel‘s handling of crime, a Chicago Tribune poll from earlier this year has found. This board must not be copped and co-opted-with someone who may already be biased. “
