Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has reportedly postponed a vote on his plan for replacing the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA).
The proposal had been expected to go up for a full City Council vote at a special session on September 29. Now, the proposal will be the subject of an October 3 committee hearing before going up for consideration at the next regular council meeting on October 5.
The vote was reportedly pushed back at the request of aldermen who wanted to give the public more time to analyze the plan.
Under Emanuel's proposal, a Civilian Office on Police Accountability will replace IPRA, which investigates police-involved shootings. The mayor also wants to create a new public safety deputy within the city's inspector general's office.
