Professor Randall K. Johnson will have an article, Why Police Should Protect Complainant Autonomy,  published in 103 Minnesota Law Review Headnotes  _ (Forthcoming, 2019).

“This essay is one in a series of papers that sets the record straight about the type, quality and quantity of information that law enforcement agencies may employ to make more informed policy decisions. The essay does its work in, at least, three (3) ways. First, it encourages better use of public sector resources by calling for reform of the police complaint intake process. Next, this essay identifies the causes of police complaint inefficiencies by scrutinizing how intake is done by the Chicago Police Department (CPD). Lastly, it provides guidance for how to achieve intake reform: simply by better protecting complainant autonomy.”

Professor Johnson’s article will be presented at an upcoming conference, the 7th Annual State and Local Government Works-In-Progress Conference at the Fordham University, School of Law.
