Report: Chicago agency had no records on 6 police shootings

(CHICAGO) Chicago’s inspector general has found the city agency that reviews police shootings had no records on six shootings in recent years.

The inspector general released a report Tuesday that found that the Independent Police Review Authority’s quarterly reports between late 2007 and 2014 didn’t match the actual number of shootings by officers. In all, 49 shootings weren’t mentioned in the quarterly reports during that time.

The head of the authority, Sharon Fairley, says that in six cases it had no records that Chicago police notified the agency about the shootings.

The inspector general also found that the number of times officers used Tasers didn’t match in reports from October 2013 until September 2014.

A police spokesman had no immediate comment on the inspector general’s findings.
