Cleveland Division of Police Settlement Agreement
The United States Department of Justice and the City of Cleveland have entered into an agreement to create widespread reforms and changes within the Cleveland Division of Police.
The changes focus on building community trust, creating a culture of community and problem-oriented policing, officer safety and training, officer accountability and technological upgrades. In addition, a Mental Health Response Advisory Committee will be formed to foster relationships and build support between police, the community and mental health providers. There will be broad data collection regarding many of CDP’s activities, including its use of force and stop and search practices, and public reporting of that data on this website.
Under the agreement, the parties have jointly selected an independent monitor to assess and report whether the requirements of the agreement have been implemented for a term of at least five years.
