The Monitoring Team is committed to ensuring that reform under the Consent Decree is conducted in the open, giving community members,  CPD officers, and stakeholders from across Cleveland a voice and a seat at the table.

Police reform under the Consent Decree is geared toward ensuring that law enforcement in Cleveland is consistent with the values of Cleveland and recognizes the countless, diverse communities that make up the broader fabric of Cleveland.  The Monitoring Team, Community Police Commission, and Division of Police will all be doing separate outreach into communities from across Cleveland to ensure that all community members have a seat at the table and that all voices are heard.
