Police say an internal department investigation on how a 14-year-old boy allegedly was able to impersonate a Chicago officer is complete.

But police spokeswoman Antoinette Ursitti said Monday the findings won't be made public until Supt. Jody Weis (WEES) can address them.

Ursitti says an investigation into the Jan. 24 security breach includes surveillance video and witness interviews.

The incident was embarrassing for Weis and the department.

The boy, wearing a uniform, entered a South Side police station through an unlocked back door. He posed as an officer for hours, including time in a patrol car with another officer. He was discovered after police noticed his uniform lacked a regulation star.

The boy's name hasn't been released. He pleaded not guilty in juvenile court to impersonating an officer
