Chicago Police watchdog recommended three-day suspension for slain officer Ella French
The oversight agency for the Chicago Police Department released a report last week from its review of a February 2019 police raid, revealing it had recommended a three-day suspension for Ella French, the police officer killed during a traffic stop in August.
The inclusion of French’s name in the Civilian Office of Police Accountability report after her death had the police union president fuming.
In a statement to WGN, John Catanzara, president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, said the police oversight agency has “zero credibility” and demanded an apology.
“This is the latest example of why that agency has zero credibility in the eyes of every CPD officer,” Catanzara said. “We demand an apology immediately for the intentional harm caused to Ella’s family, friends and co-workers.”
