(65 ILCS 120/10-5)
Sec. 10-5. Purpose. As part of the bid to host the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Chicago, this Article provides for the creation of a commission, known as the Chicago Olympic Public Safety Command, or COPSC, that will engage in security and public safety planning, management, and administration if Chicago is selected as the host city for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. In the event of such selection, it is intended that COPSC will contribute to the achievement of the following objectives: foster the intergovernmental cooperation of local, State, and federal public safety agencies in providing for the public safety of the Olympic and Paralympic Games; develop a comprehensive security and public safety plan; create a unified chain of command; and implement an effective and efficient public safety and security operation that does not compromise the celebratory spirit of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
