FOP wins 'cooling off' period battle

June 29, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The Independent Police Review Authority insisted last year on speaking to officers within two hours of a police-involved shooting. That sparked a fight with the Fraternal Order of Police.

Now, the two parties have agreed to a minimum of 24 hours before the Independent Police Review Authority can question officers about a shooting.

Those interviews must take place between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. to give an officer what is being called a "proper sleep cycle."
