The Chicago Police Board seeks a highly-qualified attorney to serve as a Hearing Officer. The Hearing Officer’s primary responsibility is to conduct disciplinary hearings of cases involving allegations of misconduct by Chicago police officers.
The Municipal Code of Chicago requires the Hearing Officer to be an attorney licensed to practice in the State of Illinois, with a minimum of five years’ experience. The Board is seeking an attorney with extensive trial experience, an in-depth knowledge of the law and procedure, excellent oral- and written-communication skills, and an ability to present complex legal and factual issues clearly and impartially to the Board members.
This is a contract position with the Chicago Police Board; therefore, all typical rights and benefits of employee status are not available. Hearing Officers will act as independent contractors and will be responsible for providing all equipment and materials necessary to perform the tasks of the job. Hearing Officers serve on an hourly basis. Compensation is currently $175 per hour. The average amount of time worked per year is 100-150 hours.
Applicants shall send to Police Board Executive Director Max Caproni the following material: (1) a completed application form (available in the “Alerts” section of the Board’s website at ChicagoPoliceBoard.org); (2) a résumé; and (3) one writing sample.
Material shall be sent either via electronic mail or in hard copy to:
Chicago Police Board
30 North LaSalle Street, Suite 1220
Chicago, IL 60602
All material must be received by 5:00 p.m. Friday, October 26, 2018.
If you have a disability and require a reasonable accommodation to submit your application, please contact Executive Director Caproni by e-mail or at 312-742-3259.
