Police reform monitors face new budget limits under Garland DOJ

Police reform monitors to be bound by DOJ rules

The Justice Department will impose new limits on police reform monitors, it announced Monday.

The new restrictions – including budget caps, term limits and training requirements  – come as police officials have expressed concerns over monitor payments, which have risen to more than $1 million annually in some cities.

For years, the Justice Department had relied on so-called consent decrees to bring change to police departments accused of abuse, a practice that was all but abandoned during the Trump administration.

Attorney General Merrick Garland this year announced the revival of intervention in troubled police agencies, opening wide-ranging civil rights investigations in Minneapolis, Louisville and Phoenix.

While agencies have largely benefitted from the intervention, the actions often result in costly court-enforced reform agreements.
