Summary In 2015, the Better Government Association continued to make police accountability and criminal justice one of the primary focuses of its investigative journalism. We raised questions about whether cases involving law enforcement officers were handled fairly and took a broader look at the cost of police misconduct. We also compared Chicago police shooting statistics to other departments across the country and found a troubling trend among our police force.
