The Narcotics Audit

Five Years and Counting...

Since 2015, Lucy Parsons Labs has obtained approximately six hundred checks related to the Chicago Police Department's use of civil asset forfeiture. This page contains a searchable and sortable repository of these records, as well as all the checks we've obtained since 2010. There are links to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, the results of each request, and the check amounts. We also invite you to read our full investigation into CPD's use of civil asset forfeiture in the Chicago Reader.
