Consecutive Days Worked by Chicago Police Department Members, April – May 2022

Report Details

Report Description: 
The Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) Public Safety section has completed an analysis of scheduling information for Chicago Police Department (CPD) members between April 1, 2022, and May 31, 2022, including the cancellation of sworn CPD members’ regular days off. OIG concluded that cohorts of CPD members were scheduled to work 11 or more consecutive days during that time period, that some but not all members worked all consecutive days for which they were scheduled, and that the multiple systems in which CPD stores relevant data and the need to manually review certain records impede ready analysis of work schedules and periods of rest. CPD members are assigned to a day off group (DOG), a calendar grouping used to set a member’s regular day off (RDO). To perform its analysis, OIG extracted DOG calendars along with the DOG assignment and watch, and the scheduled shift of every active, sworn CPD member from CPD’s data. OIG also reviewed notices issued by CPD cancelling RDOs during the period of analysis, as provided to OIG by CPD. Despite challenges in reviewing and comparing CPD’s records, OIG determined that many CPD members were scheduled to work 11 or more consecutive days between April and May 2022. OIG also found, by reviewing actual attendance of a sample of members, that although some members did not actually work as many consecutive days as they were scheduled for, others did in fact work 11 or more consecutive days during the period of analysis.
