A Statement from Mayor Frank G. Jackson Regarding Judge Oliver’s Approval of Settlement Agreement

Friday, June 12, 2015

CLEVELAND – I am pleased that Judge Solomon Oliver has accepted the City of Cleveland and Department of Justice Settlement Agreement. The acceptance of this agreement begins the road to reform that will ultimately result in a Division of Police the citizens of our city deserve. 

I am committed to being transparent and providing regular updates throughout the process – not only to the court, as we are required to do – but, just as importantly, to the community.
