New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued Executive Order 203 last June to direct local police agencies statewide to review their forces and develop plans to improve them. The directive led the city of Ithaca, New York, in collaboration with Tompkins County, to release a recommendations report on Monday that reimagines its public safety and law enforcement. The Claim "My state is a black hole of stupidity. Ithaca (NY) Mayor Calls for Abolishing Police Dept, Replacing With 'Community Solution Workers'," one Twitter user posted on Thursday. My state is a black hole of stupidity.

The directive surfaced in a July email from then-Shakespeare District Commander Some neighbors in the Logan Square area have complained about the city’s approach to protests around Lightfoot ’s house, which at times has included checking residents’ IDs before letting them close.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and city officials unveiled a series of proposals to reform the city's policy and procedures on search warrants in the fallout of a botched raid on the home of a social worker in 2019. Lightfoot , along with Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown, emphasized that "That video resonated wide and far." Under the proposed changes, which will undergo a 15-day period for community feedback prior to being finalized, no - knock warrants will be banned from use "except in specific cases where lives or safety are in danger ." Before any search warrant is executed, an

While speaking about the new reform proposals on Wednesday, Lightfoot said, "The reforms to CPD's search warrant policy follow a detailed, comprehensive and above all transparent process which build upon our ongoing efforts to ensure Chicago's values of accountability and fundamental human dignity are respected and preserved."

The statement from Lightfoot's office notes that these reform proposals seek to prevent a repeat of a February 2019 incident when CPD officers wrongfully raided the home of Anjanette Young, a Black social worker.

In December 2020, videos were released of police raiding Young's home, and the woman repeatedly telling officers that they were in the wrong home.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the city’s police superintendent have announced proposed changes to the department’s search warrant policy and procedures, more than a year after officers reportedly barged into the wrong home and forced the woman living there to stand naked in Lightfoot and Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown on Wednesday outlined changes designed to prevent a repeat of the scene in February 2019 at the home of Anjanette Young, starting with a ban on all " no - knock " warrants except "in specific cases where lives or safety are in danger ," they said.

Under the proposed policy, officers will be required before a search warrant is executed to, according to the news release, "conduct a planning session ... to identify any potentially vulnerable people" who may be inside. Also, the policy will require an independent investigation to make sure the information used to obtain the warrant is accurate.

At a press briefing, Brown and Lightfoot said the new policy will be posted as a draft on the police department's website for 15 days so that the public can comment on it. Lightfoot said she hopes that the final policy will be implemented by the end of the month.

Lightfoot has come under intense criticism for the way she and the city responded to the botched raid at Young's home. The social worker during the several minutes she was not allowed to dress tearfully told officers who continued to search the home that they were at the wrong address.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and South Side Alderman Raymond Lopez cursed at each other on a conference call with the city council last Sunday to discuss how best to respond to Black Lives Matter-related riots in the Windy City. As Black Lives Matter rioters coursed through the city, Lightfoot attempted to lock the protesters out of the Loop area by raising the bridges over the Chicago River and blockading highway exits feeding into downtown. But Lopez accused the Mayor of forsaking his district while she focused on the Loop.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago Police Supt. David Brown announced plans for sweeping changes to the Chicago Police Department's search warrant policies, after a years-long series of reports by the CBS 2 Investigators on wrong raids. CBS 2's Mugo Odigwe reports the city is making changes in three areas; involving what happens before, during, and after a search warrant is That's a huge move because that's three ranks above the previous requirement of a lieutenant approval. Also, all no - knock warrants will be banned from use, except in specific cases where lives or safety are in danger .

Chicago's law department, as it had in the video of the 2014 shooting death of Black teenager Laquan McDonald, tried in court to keep the video from being made public. Then, when WBBM-TV aired the video from Young's home late last year, Lightfoot said she was only then learning about the video. She acknowledged later that she received a detailed email about the video a year earlier.

On Wednesday, Lightfoot reiterated what she said at that time. "The fact of the matter is that trust was, no question, shaken," she said.

The police department has long struggled to change its reputation for brutality and misconduct. On Wednesday, Brown suggested that the problems won't be solved simply by changing rules.

"If Ms. Young was the biggest drug kingpin we still should have treated her with dignity and respect," he said.

Last month, Young sued the city and 12 police officers, alleging that the officers engaged in a conspiracy to cover up civil rights violations. The 12 officers connected to the raid have been placed on desk duty pending the outcome of a Civilian Office of Police Accountability investigation and the city's top attorney resigned shortly after the video became public.
