"I believe Cleveland will be a model of policing in the years to come." – Matthew Barge

On 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.
