NOPD Community Mtg to Discuss Consent Decree

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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.
