NEW ORLEANS — Echoing remarks made last month in federal court, a court-appointed monitor says the New Orleans Police Department has made strides in a comprehensive reform effort, but much remains to be done.
The latest quarterly report by the firm appointed to oversee police reforms takes special note of the effort to capture the suspect in the shooting death of Officer Daryle Holloway — saying it was "professional, ethical, and compliant" with the reform agreement approved by the federal court.
The report also notes improvements in training at the city's police academy, but says the speed of change is slow.
It also says still more improvement is needed in investigations of use of force, and data-keeping on vehicle pursuits.
