Upon entering the apartment, an officer can be heard saying: "Do you want to take it off?" He then begins to unwind the rope and says, "There's bleach on me".
The Chicago Police department on Monday (June 24) released a trove of footage and documents related to the January 29 attack, which Smollett has been accused of faking. Smollett continues to deny that the event was staged.
Weeks later, prosecutors dropped all charges against Smollett after the actor agreed to pay the city $10,000 and do community service.
On February 1, Commander Edward Wodnicki urged investigators to confirm key information given by Smollett about the night in question: "Verify and I mean verify that the victim got off a plane at O'Hare [airport]".
"I don't want to be filmed, so can you please turn it off?" he said. "They poured bleach on me", before removing the noose. The thing that makes me emotional is they put this makeshift loop, what do you call that thing, a noose around his (expletive) neck.
Police said he staged the attack with the help of two brothers, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo.More news: Vincent Kompany says Lampard is 'natural fit' for Chelsea job

Smollett's lawyers had produced documents suggesting the money paid to the brothers was a personal training fee, and called for the city to file charges against the Osundairo brothers if there is proof they had perpetrated the attack.
But about a month after he was arrested, all the charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped.
Empire's co-creator said Smollett was not returning to the show's sixth season. That could open the door for Smollett to be charged again.
On Monday, Smollett's attorneys did not respond to a request for comment.
"We stand firmly behind the work of detectives in investigating the fabricated incident reported by Jussie Smollett and Chicago Police will fully cooperate with the court appointed special prosecutor", police Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter.
