NOPD Community Mtg to Discuss Consent Decree

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

October 2, 2018

NOPD Community Meeting for Fourth District to Discuss Consent Decree Progress Set for October 11


NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is inviting the public to attend district-centric meetings aimed at providing citizens with updates on the department's progress in meeting the requirements of the NOPD Consent Decree.

 

At these meetings, NOPD Deputy Chief of Compliance Danny Murphy and other NOPD representatives will be on hand to provide an update on progress made to meet the requirements of the Consent Decree, and to answer questions from the community on the Consent Decree.

 

A meeting for citizens in the Fourth District is scheduled for Thursday, October 11, at 6 p.m. at the Fourth District station, located at 2405 Sanctuary Drive.

 

On July 24, 2012, the City, NOPD and the U.S. Department of Justice entered into a Consent Decree, which is the most expansive decree of its kind in the nation. The Consent Decree contains a broad array of separate tasks and goals detailed in more than 490 paragraphs and 110 pages; it reflects a shared commitment to effective, constitutional, and professional law enforcement.

 

The Consent Decree is a broad, extensive blueprint for positive change, and it encompasses sweeping, department-wide reforms that understandably may require years to accomplish fully.

 

Within the NOPD, the Compliance Bureau is tasked with – among other things – facilitating the implementation of the Consent Decree.

 

"These meetings are an opportunity for the community to engage with the NOPD about reforms," Murphy said. 

 

Anyone with questions regarding the Consent Decree can visit the Consent Decree page on the NOPD website at https://www.nola.gov/nopd/nopd-consent-decree/, or call the NOPD Compliance Bureau at 504-658-5080.

The group does not have any decision making authority, but will meet quarterly to achieve the following goals: • Maintain a consistent partnership between the community and law enforcement; • Serve to help reduce crime and enhance the quality of life for all citizens; • Establish goals that can be accomplished through positive and open communications; • Assist law enforcement in helping to maintain police standard for accountability; • Create processes to help address issues of bias-based policing; • Improve interaction between police and citizens through education and training; and • Strengthen and ensure the application of equal protection under the law for all citizens. Membership is open to all New Orleans residents who are eighteen years or older and may be interested in serving as a volunteer leader in their respective police district.

PCABs are creating the framework for a public participation plan with the NOPD to engage in a collaborative problem-solving process that supports both the community and the police desire to enhance public safety. PCABs are responsible for vetting community ideas/suggestions, working with NOPD to understand operations, processes and challenges, and building consensus on priority items important to the community before submitting recommendations to NOPD for consideration. PCABs are also responsible for assisting NOPD in recruitment efforts.
