October 1, 2015, Matthew Barge of the Police Assessment Resource Center was selected as Cleveland Police Monitor to
oversee the implementation of a consent decree between the City of Cleveland
and United States which requires the Cleveland Division of Police to enact a
number of specific reforms.
While the consent decree will likely take five years to implement, work has already begun this year to craft a new use-of-force policy, train officers to better handle mental health crises, and to build bridges with the community, including addressing and investigating citizen complaints.
Join us for a conversation with Mr. Barge on what progress as been made and what reforms still need to be enacted in regards to the Cleveland consent decree.
