Seems like such information should be available to the public, since police departments are funded by, well, the public. Maybe CPD needs to loosen up a bit before people completely lose faith in the department, which may still be one of the most openly corrupt and thuggish in the nation (check out the Trib or Sun Times any day of the week). But I'm just a "downstater" so what do I know.
