The Detroit Police Department agreed Thursday to a sweeping overhaul that includes an independent monitor and federal court oversight for the next five years.

City officials signed two consent decrees that include major revisions to the Police Department’s policies on the use of force, arrest and detention of witnesses, training and officer discipline. The agreement settles a federal civil rights complaint.
