To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/1 to 11), I hereby request the following records:

According to a recent report from the Department of Justice:

"If there are four or more incidents that would otherwise qualify for non-disciplinary intervention, or if the officer is involved in more serious allegations of misconduct, CPD can refer the officer to the Behavioral Intervention System (BIS) or Personnel Concerns Program (PCP). By policy, Human Resources recommends enrollment in BIS based on the existence of several “performance data,” including sustained misconduct charges, low performance grade, or a pre-set number of instances of other misbehaviors such as tardiness, being absent without permission, or medical roll misuse. The ultimate decision of whether to enroll a member in BIS generally rests with the member’s commander, although Human Resources may override a commander’s decision not to enroll his or her subordinate. Employees enrolled in BIS undergo a physical examination, including drug testing, but are not required to undergo a psychological evaluation. Once placed in BIS, CPD may give employees counseling services or an individual performance plan."

Therefore, I request:
* Documents sufficient to show the criteria that go into quote "the existence of several “performance data,”". I seek documents to show which data is considered, the type of data and how it is sorted / applied.
* Documents sufficient to show quote: "Employees enrolled in BIS undergo a physical examination, including drug testing, but are not required to undergo a psychological evaluation". Therefore I seek document sufficient to show the number of officers who failed a drug test.

For both requests, please consider the time period between 2009 to the present.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. This request is being made by the Lucy Parsons Labs, a registered non profit in the state of Illinois.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Freddy Martinez
Director, Lucy Parsons Labs

Hi Mr. Martinez,

With regard to FOIA P056377; this matter has been directed to the drug testing unit, which is working to identify any officer involved in BIS who failed a drug test during the time in question. In order to afford sufficient time to complete this work, I would propose extending this matter to Friday, February 10, 2017. In the event that responsive information is produced prior to that date, we will direct it to you as it becomes available.

Please advise whether this will work for you.

Regards,
