The Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) will host community forums regarding the Consent Decree between it and the U.S. Department of Justice. 

The forums will give community members an opportunity to hear from local and federal law enforcement officials on the status of the reform efforts and the next steps.

Information will be provided about the investigative process on use of force, including racial, ethnic and other disparities in its use of force, as well as police accountability systems, including how internal investigations are conducted, how the police department responds to citizen complaints and how it handles officer discipline.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
