Evanston aldermen tonight are scheduled to approve a $55,000 contract with Logan Consulting Services of Evanston to provide a diversity and inclulsion workshop series for the police department.
Logan Consulting is operated by Gilo Kwesi Logan, the son of retired Evanston Police Chief Bill Logan. Gilo Logan is an instructor of justice studies at Northeastern Illinois University and founder of the non-profit S.O.U.L Creations agency that offers arts-in-education enrichment programs.
In a memo to aldermen, Police Chief Richard Eddington says the year-long program would seek to show that the city and police department are responsive to the needs of the community.
The program, among other goals, would seek to increase cultural awareness, knowledge and skills for strengthening partnerships with the community.
