Assessment shows little progress made by the City over the course of one year
For Immediate Release
October 13, 2022
Today, the Community Police Commission (CPC) released its fourth “Quantification Report” in its ongoing effort to help the Cleveland community understand the progress the City of Cleveland has made towards Consent Decree compliance.
In its report, the CPC developed a numeric scoring system to show the City’s compliance status, with numbers based on the Monitoring Team’s status summaries described in their semiannual reports.
By quantifying the Monitoring Team’s assessments, and assigning the progress made in each Consent Decree paragraph with a number, it’s the CPC’s goal in this report to provide the citizens of Cleveland an additional way to understand the Monitor’s reports, and to more easily track overall progress and see how much work remains. Key areas assessed for compliance include: Accountability, Use of Force, Community & Problem Oriented Policing (CPOP), and Crisis Intervention.
The CPC’s Quantification Report assessed the Monitor’s findings in their Eleventh Semiannual Report.
Main takeaways in the CPC’s report:
– Compliance increased 1.3% between the publication of the Monitor’s Tenth and Eleventh Semiannual Reports. The Tenth report assessed the timeframe of January 2021 – June 2021, and the Eleventh report assessed the timeframe of January 2022 – June 2022.
– In the current reporting period, the City has made 42% overall progress towards full compliance.
