CHICAGO (AP) - A report says the Chicago Police Department failed to meet most of its deadlines in a far-reaching court-supervised reform plan, but has made progress.

The first progress report filed Friday shows 37 out 50 missed deadlines during the first six months of implementing the consent decree, a court order outlining reforms, including on use of force. However, the report noted the city met obligations after deadlines.

The reforms are the culmination of a process that started with the release of video in 2015 showing a white police officer fatally shooting black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times.

Christina Anderson is the police department’s director of reform management. She tells The Chicago Tribune the delays can be partly blamed on needing to establish ways of working with the court monitor and others involved.
