Chicago Inspector General finishes investigation into botched police raid of Anjanette Young's home

CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A City of Chicago watchdog has finished his report into how the city handled the botched police raid on the home of a woman from Chicago more than two years ago.

City of Chicago Inspector General Joseph Ferguson said his office has completed its report into how the city departments, including the Mayor's Office, handled the aftermath of the botched raid at the home of Anjanette Young in February 2019.

The Civilian Office of Police Accountability has completed a separate review of the conduct of the officers involved in the raid and sent the findings to Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown.

The IG's report will focus on what happened after the raid, including attempts by the city's law department to stop CBS 2 from airing officer body cam footage from the raid.

The report will go to the Mayor's Office next week. According to CBS 2, Ferguson said the Lightfoot administration will have “a period of time” to review and respond to his office’s report on the probe before any findings are made public.
