CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel named a five-member committee tasked with finding the new head of the office responsible for investigating charges of police misconduct.
Among the members of the committee to find the new chief administrator of the Independent Police Review Authority are Ald. Deborah Graham (29th) and the Rev. Michael Pfleger, a prominent face of the anti-violence movement on the South Side.
Ilana Rosenzweig, the former head of the unit, which looks into police-involved shootings, incidents of excessive force and misconduct in the Chicago Police Department, announced in April she'd step down from her position.
The other members of the panel are former Chicago Police Supt. Terry Hilliard, co-founder of the private security consulting firm Hillard Heintz; Michael Rodriguez, executive director of Little Village's Enlace Chicago; and CNA executive Sarah Pang, who is serving as chairwoman.
The committee will submit its recommendations to the mayor, who will submit his choice for appointment to the City Council.
