About the Independent Monitor
The Police Performance Solutions Independent Monitoring Team (PPS/IMT), chaired by Monitor Warsaw, consists of experts in law enforcement, police monitoring, auditing and evaluation, intergovernmental relations, civil rights compliance, constitutional considerations and best practices in contemporary policing. It was hired in 2010 to monitor the Memorandum of Understanding.
Where appropriate, PPS/IMT builds on existing work of both the prior monitor and OPD. PPS/IMT focuses on several core areas including:
- Internal Affairs and Citizen Complaints
- Use of Force
- The Personnel Assessment System
- Span of Control
- Management and Supervision (Oversight, Auditing and Review Systems).
PPS/IMT determines compliance through:
- Examination of the creation of policies
- Implementation of practices that support each requirement in the Agreement.
