Active Sworn Officer Units Over Time


This dashboard is a heat map that compares the net strength of sworn officers in Chicago Police Department units. The net strength of a unit reflects an officer on detail to the unit. The information on this dashboard includes unit manpower as of the data snapshot date. Select a month to display using the Date filter dropdown. The sample can be filtered to display data by Unit name and by Operational and Non-Operational Units. In 2012, Mayor Emmanuel consolidated police districts which resulted in the closure of Districts 13, 21, and 23. The table and charts shows only current districts.

Data Sources: Chicago Police Department databases and Chicago Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (ChIPPS). Records begin August 2017 and the dashboard is refreshed during the first week of the month. Data is current through the date of last update (listed in top right corner of page).
