Baltimore remains on track to implement one of the nation’s most complex policing consent decrees, but persistent struggles continue in several reform areas, including the department’s progress in improving technology and hiring more officers, according to the federal judge overseeing the process. “While police consent decrees have been entered in other cities since the 1990s, no decree entered before this one has had the length, breadth and complexity of ours,” said U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar at Thursday’s quarterly public hearing about the Baltimore Police Department’s progress in implementing sweeping police reforms.
