Section One
This is the eleventh quarterly report of the Monitor of the Negotiated Settlement Agreement(NSA) in the case of 
 Delphine Allen, et al., vs. City of Oakland, et al.,
in the United StatesDistrict Court for the Northern District of California. In January 2010, under the direction of Judge Thelton E. Henderson, the Parties agreed to my appointment as Monitor of the OaklandPolice Department (OPD). In this capacity, I oversee the monitoring process that began in 2003under the previous monitor, and produced 14 status reports. The current Monitoring Teamconducted our eleventh quarterly site visit from August 13, through 17, 2012, to evaluate theDepartment’s progress with the NSA during the three-month period of April 1, through June 30,2012.In the body of this report, we again report the compliance status with the remaining active Tasksof the Agreement. By the end of the seven-year tenure of the previous monitor, the Departmentwas in full compliance with 32 of the 51 required Tasks, and in partial compliance with 16additional Tasks. As a result, the Parties agreed to reduce the number of Tasks under “active”monitoring to the current list of 22.During this reporting period, we continue to find the Department in Phase 1, or policy,compliance with all 22 of the remaining active Tasks. With regard to Phase 2, or fullcompliance, we find that OPD is in compliance with 12 of the 22 remaining Tasks. This reflectsa reversal, to out of compliance with one Task, and the change from partial compliance todeferred for another.We are dismayed by the level of compliance reflected in this report, as should be the Departmentand the City of Oakland. We can only characterize the current condition in the Department asone of stubborn resistance to compliance with an Agreement made long ago: an Agreement thatsimply enumerates concepts common in police agencies across the country. It is not that thefoundation for embracing these reforms is absent; that is clear from our Phase 1 findings. Whathas not followed, though, is the commitment and hard work required to
on that foundation,to do more than go through the motions, to fully adopt and internalize the principles of effective,Constitutional policing. So much still remains to be done.Chief (Ret.) Robert S. Warshaw
