NOPD to Hold Public Meetings on Consent Decree Progress

The NOPD is inviting the public to attend district-centric meetings aimed at providing citizens with updates on the department’s progress in meeting the requirements of the NOPD Consent Decree.

At these meetings, NOPD Deputy Chief Superintendent of Performance, Standards & Accountability Bureaus (PSAB) Nicholas Gernon and other NOPD representatives will be on hand to provide an update on progress made to meet the requirements of the Consent Decree, and to answer questions from the community.

On July 24, 2012,  the City, NOPD and the U.S. Department of Justice entered into a Consent Decree which, at the time, was the most expansive such decree in the nation.  The Consent Decree contains a broad array of separate tasks and goals detailed in 492 paragraphs; it reflects a shared commitment to effective, constitutional, and professional law enforcement.

Consent Decree meetings will begin Wednesday in the Seventh District and will end Thursday April 27th in the Third District.  The schedule is as follows:
