Monitoring Team’s 10th Semiannual Report

Date Filed: November 1, 2021

This review returns, after the focus on the demonstration events of the summer of 2020 in the Ninth Semiannual Report, to a more familiar general update on the progress of the City of Cleveland toward achieving compliance with the Consent Decree.

As the Consent Decree progresses, there are fewer and fewer substantive updates required and more of a need to focus on compliance assessments and progress. This stage of the process requires smaller narratives as the basic questions narrow in on this central inquiry – is the Division of Police doing what it needs to do and are the mandates of the Consent Decree playing out in practice?

The Monitoring Team is offering a summary snapshot of progress in an easily digestible format, which is attached to this report as Exhibit A.
