Mayor LaToya Cantrell is calling on the federal government to end a consent decree levied on the NOPD seven-years ago.

Cantrell spoke at a roundtable discussion on Thursday laying out the case for ending the decree, which she said has cost the city $55 million to pay outside monitors.

NOPD Superintendent Shaun Ferguson says federal monitors overseeing the decree are expected to release the results of an audit into the Department's task forces today.

Ferguson added that progress inside the NOPD had moved its reputation from one of corruption to a model for police forces across the country.
