Posted on Jul 24, 2012 in Courts, Legislation, Local Issues, National Issues, NOPD
The federal consent decree over the New Orleans Police Department will be announced today at 3:45pm at Gallier Hall by U.S Attorney General Eric Holder, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and other local and federal officials.
The changes by the decree will depict how officers must conduct traffic stops, searches and arrests, how they examine officer use of force, and how they interrogate citizens. The federal decree will remain for at least four years and under the eyes of a monitor and federal court judge and will serve as guidelines for change for the city’s police department.
