When there is a vacancy in the Office of the Chicago Police Superintendent, the Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability (the Commission) is charged by law with conducting a national search and selecting three candidates to present to the Mayor.

In July, the Commission completed a national search and sent the names of three candidates to the Mayor. On August 13th, Mayor Brandon Johnson selected one of the candidates, Chief Larry Snelling, to be Chicago’s next police Superintendent. Mayor Johnson’s appointment must be voted on by the Chicago City Council. Before the City Council hearing and vote, the Commissioner must have a public hearing where Chief Snelling will appear and answer questions from the Commission and the public. Participants can also provide comments about Chief Snelling.

See Documenters reporting

In July 2021, the Chicago City Council passed an ordinance creating a new model for police oversight, accountability, and public safety. The ordinance creates two types of bodies: a citywide Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability, with power to advance systemic reform, and District Councils, which will be elected in each police district and work to improve policing and public safety in the district. The Commission and District Councils will bring police officers and Chicago residents together to plan, prioritize, and build mutual trust; strengthen the police accountability system; give Chicagoans a meaningful new role in oversight; and explore and advance alternative effective approaches to public safety.
