The Consent Decree expressly contemplates the meaningful involvement of the community. Specifically, Paragraph 461 of the Consent Decree provides that the monitoring team "shall meet with community stakeholders to explain the Monitor's reports, to inform the public about the Agreement implementation process, and to hear community perspectives of police interactions."
The NOPD Consent Decree Monitor held a virtual public meeting on Thursday, August 31, 2023 to explain the Monitor’s public reports and inform the public on the status of the implementation of the NOPD Consent Decree. In an effort to make this public meeting available to as many individuals as possible, it was held virtually via Zoom.
