Maggie Hickey Appointed Chicago Police Department Monitor

News Release |

We are pleased to announce that Maggie Hickey has been appointed as the independent monitor to oversee implementation of the multi-year consent decree for the Chicago Police Department (CPD).

“We are humbled by the trust the city and state have placed in our team to do this important work on behalf of the people of Chicago,” Maggie said. “We know this is a pivotal time in our city's history and the Schiff Hardin-CNA team looks forward to working with our communities, CPD, the city and the state, Judge Coar, and Judge Dow, to make Chicago a safer city.”

A former federal prosecutor and former Illinois Executive Inspector General, Maggie was selected in 2018 to lead an independent review of the Chicago Public School district’s policies and procedures related to sexual harassment. She was also handpicked by multiple state legislators to investigate sexual harassment within all departments of the Office of the Speaker of the House in Illinois. Maggie is the leader of the firm’s White Collar Defense and Government Investigations Practice Group, which advises clients on government and internal investigations, compliance programs, and ethics training.
