Consent Decree Settlement

Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Cleveland Chief of Police Calvin Williams discussed the settlement agreement between the City of Cleveland and the U.S. Department of Justice at a recent press conference at Cleveland City Hall in the Red Room. The agreement will give the City five years to implement and it will include plans to have all officers in all five districts trained on crisis intervention and the creation of a civilian Police Inspector General who will oversee disciplinary decisions.
