OIG Advisory Regarding the 2015 CPD Lieutenant’s Promotional Exam

The Office of Inspector General has issued an advisory with recommendations to the Chicago Police Department (CPD) for improvements to ensure the integrity of its promotional testing processes. The advisory arises from an extensive investigation into allegations that certain CPD members received confidential exam materials pertaining to the 2015 lieutenant promotional exam. OIG did not find sufficient evidence to sustain allegations against any CPD member but identified several control issues with CPD’s process for investigating allegations and for administering exams.
