UnitedStates Department of Justice, Deputy Chief Paul Killebrew stated “From DOJ's perspective, the big headline for today is APD has made a significant gain in achieving full compliance with the consent decree in this case. And it is worth stepping back to just look at where that put us in the overall life of this case” (Page 16 Para. 12).
Court-appointedIndependent Monitor James Ginger stated “The mentoring, coaching, and oversight provided to APD by EFIT continues to result in industry standard practices and to produce industry standard results in the force investigations that we reviewed this reporting period. Again, that's a significant change in what we've seen in the past.” (Page 62 Para. 17).
“We are making significant progress due to the resolve of some of the most dedicated professionals I have had the privilege of working with.” said Mr. Neier.
