DOJ Commits to Baltimore Police Reform Regardless of ‘Political Winds’; City Promises to Pay
February 2, 2017
Despite a change in administration in Washington, the U.S. Department of Justice assured a federal judge Wednesday that it remains fully committed to the sweeping police reforms in the consent decree the city agreed to under the Obama administration.
“It endures across shifting political winds,” said Timothy Mygatt, the department’s deputy chief of special litigation for civil rights. “It allows there to be surety for all parties involved that there’s going to be consistency.”
