Full Video Link for the Press Conference 

CLEVELAND – Today, the City of Cleveland and Department of Justice signed a settlement agreement that will mark a new way of policing in the city, one built on a strong foundation of progressive change, sustained trust, and accountability. The agreement with the Department of Justice is a reflection of ideas from people and groups across the community – including residents, civil rights organizations, activists, clergy, student groups, business and philanthropic organizations and elected officials, as well as the police unions and the Division of Police. Our goal throughout this process was to have real reform that will be sustainable.  This agreement is a major step in getting us there.
