On August 28, 2003, U.S. District Court Judge Thelton Henderson (Northern District of California) approved the appointment of an Independent Monitoring Team (the IMT) to monitor compliance with the Negotiated Settlement Agreement. This team served during the seven years of the Agreement, from June 2003 through January 20, 2010. Its status reports provide a clear and comprehensive account of OPD’s status regarding compliance with the Negotiated Settlement Agreement over the Third Report time period.
The Negotiated Settlement Agreement requires that the City and OPD file regular status reports with the court, showing what OPD has done to comply with the provisions of the Agreement. Copies of these reports can be accessed below.
