Zachary Powell, a California State University, San Bernardino assistant professor who studies federal consent decrees, was interviewed for an article about federal oversight of Seattle’s police force.

He said Seattle’s 10-plus years of oversight trends toward one of the longer, more expensive versions of these programs. On average, these agreements cost about $7 to $10 million per year and last between five to seven years, Powell said.

Also, when Powell looks at the efficacy of DOJ consent decrees, he sees two primary ways to judge the outcome: civil litigation and community relationships.

In general, civil litigation declines in the years after a consent decree, Powell said. However, judging the improvement in relationships with the community gets messier and varies by community.

In an article about racial bullying: “Young people are often overrepresented among hate crime victims,” said Brian Levin, director at the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. “We know there is massive underreporting of bullying to begin with, and that is certainly true of youth related hate crimes.”

According to Levin, schools are a frequent location for hate incidents. “Over the past 10 years schools were the fifth most common place for hate crimes behind highways, alleys and streets, homes, and houses of worship,” he said. “Schools are one of example where we’re seeing a reverberation of anger, stereotyping, and directed aggression.”
