Police ANOV/Misdemeanor Report - ANOVs

Each record is an administrative notice of violation (ANOV), a citation issued for violating a Municipal Code of Chicago ordinance, issued by a Chicago Police Department (CPD) member. This dataset was used by CPD analysts to create an assessment report in support of a consent decree executed between the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Illinois (OAG) and the City of Chicago.

The CPD is currently engaged in a reform process, as governed by that consent decree. A consent decree is a written settlement resolving a legal dispute. The OAG/City of Chicago consent decree includes detailed requirements organized into 11 core areas (e.g., use of force, accountability and transparency), collectively designed to create organizational change within CPD. To review the consent decree and learn more about the process, see the City of Chicago’s police reform webpage:

This dataset is made available to the public pursuant to consent decree requirements described in Paragraph 79 and Paragraph 80.

Paragraph 79 of the consent decree states that:

By April 1, 2020, and every year thereafter, CPD will conduct an assessment of the relative frequency of all misdemeanor arrests and administrative notices of violation (“ANOVs”) effectuated by CPD members of persons in specific demographic categories, including race and gender.

Then, the last sentence of Paragraph 80 states that:

Upon completion of the assessment, CPD will publish the underlying data, excluding personal identifying information (e.g., name, address, contact information), via a publicly-accessible, web-based data platform.

This dataset was used by CPD analysts to create an assessment report pursuant to Paragraph 79. The report was designed to achieve compliance with Paragraph 79. Each record in the dataset shows information about an ANOV issued by a CPD member. An ANOV is a citation issued for violating a Municipal Code of Chicago ordinance. ANOV’s are adjudicated by the City of Chicago Department of Administrative Hearings (DOAH). ANOV data are owned and housed by the Department of Administrative Hearings. CPD receives a daily data extraction from the DOAH data system, whereupon ANOV data is ingested into the CPD data system.

To request the aforementioned report contact the CPD Freedom of Information Act Section at

NOV NUMBER is the record identifier for the dataset. Each record in the dataset is a unique, unduplicated citation.

Users interested in learning more about how CPD handles ANOV citations can review the current policy, using the CPD Automated Directives system ( CPD Special Order S04-22, entitled “Municipal Administrative Hearings”, provides guidelines for CPD members when issuing an ANOV.
