The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Jersey and the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, in conjunction with the Department of Justice’s Community Relations Service, invite you to attend a meeting to share your views concerning proposed reforms to the Newark Police Department to address the pattern and practice of unconstitutional policing found by the Justice Department.
The Justice Department reached an agreement in principle with the City of Newark in July 2014 to undertake wide-ranging reforms within the Police Department, including the selection of an independent court-appointed monitor and the incorporation of those reforms in a judicially enforceable consent decree.
Since the release of the agreement in principle, the Justice Department and the City of Newark have solicited applications from potential monitors and are now in the process of finalizing the consent decree.
As part of that process, the Justice Department will be holding meetings at which members of the Newark community are invited to share their views about the terms of the consent decree and the selection of a monitor.
