Stephen J. Connolly is the Executive Director of the Office of Independent Review. He began his work with OIR in September of 2008. Connolly's primary role is to monitor all complaint cases and critical incidents from beginning to end. He works closely with Internal Affairs personnel and Department executives in tracking investigations and offering recommendations about outcomes. Mr. Connolly states, "My job is to make sure - from a front row seat - that the Department's own review systems are working the way they're supposed to, and that problems are being fixed. Ideally, OIR will give the public a better understanding of the Department, and more confidence in how it handles things." Mr. Connolly is an attorney and a graduate of Loyola Law School.
