Des Moines considers hiring third-party consultant to examine police
Axios Des Moines: The city of Des Moines is considering hiring a third-party consultant to analyze the policies and trainings in place at the Des Moines Police Department, Mayor Frank Cownie said. The goal of the review is to get DMPD nationally accredited — a process that assesses the local agency’s operations based on nationally recognized best practices. The city says the process can improve police accountability. The set of accreditation guidelines is also written to bolster the department’s defense against civil lawsuits.
