Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown made the announcement during a news conference on Tuesday.

Of all the 12,770 employees of the Chicago Police Department, 67.7% have verified whether they have either been vaccinated or will submit to twice-weekly testing, with 82% of that verification being vaccinated against COVID-19, Brown said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“This process has been obviously very emotional,” Brown said. “We have given them the time and given them the explanation as best we can on the serious nature of violating the vaccine mandate.”

Despite placing the officers on a no-pay status, Brown said the 21 officers can still choose to comply with the mandate and report whether they have become vaccinated.

The mandate, which went into effect Friday, requires public employees to show proof of vaccination or undergo twice-weekly testing.

Adding to the political firestorm, Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara last week urged officers not to disclose their vaccination status over the view that the city can’t mandate disclosing “information about your medical history.”

A judge ordered Catanzara to cease public statements pushing officers to defy the vaccine mandate and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot condemned FOP and Catanazare, accusing them of trying to “induce an insurrection.”

The Chicago Police Department sent a memo on Sunday reminding officers to get vaccinated against COVID-19, warning that those who do not comply could not only face job termination but also have their retirement benefits threatened.
