District Councils bring police officers and Chicago residents together to plan, prioritize, and build mutual trust; strengthen the police accountability system; give Chicagoans a meaningful new role in oversight; and explore and advance alternative effective approaches to public safety. District Councils are elected for each of the 22 Chicago Police Districts.

The 1st District Council has a vacancy. If you are interested in serving, please apply here. Applications close June 1. The 1st District covers 3rd Ward residents who live between Roosevelt Rd. and 31st St.
