Commissioner Davis says federal monitor should have police experience

Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis told a group of city law enforcement leaders on Wednesday that he wants a federal monitor for the police department to have big-city police experience.

Davis told members of the Baltimore Criminal Justice Coordinating Council that the Police Department and federal government are negotiating the terms of a consent decree, following the release last month of the Justice Department's critical review of city police. The decree would involve appointing a monitor to report on the agency's progress to a federal judge.

Among the issues being negotiated is who will be the monitor and who will comprise their team, he said.
