Esteemed authors Samuel Walker and Carol Archbold synthesizes the major developments in the area of police accountability and argues that these developments represent a new period in the history of police reform that promises to address the historic problems of police abuse. This text assesses both the achievements and limitations of police accountability and reshapes the conventional wisdom on this topic.

" The Justice Department investigation of and 2012 consent decree with the New Orleans Police Department.

" Police department or mayoral initiated reform proposals in Cincinnati, Seattle, and New Orleans.

" Revival of Special Litigation Section Under Attorney General Eric Holder.

" The role of the federal government regarding police accountability.

" The DOJ's use of Title VI.

" The financial crisis of the city and its inability to pay for reforms.
