Chicago cops for the first time will have to photograph homes they search, in an effort to protect officers from false complaints, police said Friday.
The new order will require officers to make a log of what they find during a search and give a copy of the log to the person living there.
The order also will change how searches are supervised.
Last year, after officers in the Special Operations Section were arrested for allegedly stealing from citizens during searches, lieutenants were required to be present.
But that requirement is being scrapped to free up lieutenants for other duties. The department executes about 2,400 search warrants a year.
And are they going to get D-2 for doing an Evidence Tech's job?
UPDATE: Post corrected for pay scale
