Loretta Lynch

Constantine "Dean" Andrews, the Chicago Police Department's chief of detectives, has resigned following the announcement that the Department of Justice will investigate the department.

The DOJ will publish a report based on recommendations from the meeting, suggesting steps that lawmakers, policymakers and legislators can take to reform the criminal justice system.

In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Illinois AG Lisa Madigan asked the DOJ's Civil Rights Division to determine if the department's practices violate federal law.

Lynch's declaration as the chief law enforcement official in the government negates comments made by FBI Director James Comey, who last month argued that officers in major cities feel "under siege" due to protests, demonstrations, and discussions that aim to hold police officers accountable.
