About the Database
Last summer, the Reporter launched “Settling for Misconduct,” an interactive database that tracks how much the city spends to settle civil rights lawsuits against the Chicago police officers. This spring, we will be updating it with two additional years of data.
The stories behind Chicago’s police settlements often begin in ordinary moments, but end in extraordinary circumstances, according to the lawsuits. An 11-year-old with a gun placed at her temple. A grandmother arrested for battery to a police officer. A young man shocked unconscious by a Taser. The database brings these little-known stories back into the public eye. And we’ve made it easy for you to dig through the data yourself. You can search by an officer's name or badge number and look up lawsuits by neighborhood, payout amount, type of misconduct and more.

About the Organizers

The Chicago Reporter confronts racial and economic inequality, using the power of investigative journalism. The Reporter is the nation’s only nonprofit news organization whose mission is to investigate race. That was true in 1972, and that is still true today.

Since 1991, Young Chicago Authors has been transforming the lives of young people by cultivating their voices through writing, publication, and performance education.

For 25 years, Public Narrative has been teaching community organizations and journalists how to tell better stories — to make sure the coverage of Chicago’s issues include the voices of people, not just power.
