Sessions: Police reform deal may make Baltimore ‘less safe’

Attorney General Jeff Sessions says an Obama-era agreement between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Baltimore to bring reforms to its police force could make the city “less safe.”

A federal judge approved the consent decree on Friday, turning it into a court order. The judge blocked a request from the Trump Justice Department to delay the agreement.

Sessions blasted the decision.

“Today, a federal court entered a consent decree that will require the court and a highly-paid monitor to govern every detail of how the Baltimore Police Department functions for the foreseeable future,” the nation’s top law enforcement official said in a statement Friday.

“This decree was negotiated during a rushed process by the previous administration and signed only days before they left office.
