Description

The Illinois State Police and the Chicago Police Department each operates a “fusion center” designed to gather, store, and share sensitive information about people and groups suspected of criminal activity. Given the long and troubling history of political spying by police in Illinois, these fusion centers raise profound privacy and free speech concerns. For years, the ACLU of Illinois has monitored these fusion centers, and advocated for improved privacy rules, oversight, and transparency. The ACLU continues to monitor the activities of these centers and call for new guidelines. This report answers common questions about the fusion centers in Illinois, and provides links to pertinent documents.
