Baltimore officials on Thursday announced an agreement with the Justice Department to revamp the citys police department in an effort to end years of troubling practices uncovered after the death of Freddie Gray.

.

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and Baltimore Mayor Catherine E. Pugh outlined significant moves to overhaul training of the citys police officers to prevent discriminatory policing and the use of excessive force.

.

The 227-page agreement, known as a consent decree, was approved by the city government and filed in U.S. District Court on Thursday. The court-enforceable agreement must be approved by a federal judge.

.

The citys police department has begun some critical reform, but we know there is much more to be done, Pugh said during a news conference, flanked by Lynch and Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis.

.

The announcement comes in the final stretch of the Obama administration, which has made ending heavy-handed and biased police practices a signature issue. Lynch has pushed to secure legally binding reform agreements with other cities, including Chicago and Ferguson, Mo.

.

President-elect Donald Trump has expressed support for more aggressive policing tactics. His pick to lead the Justice Department, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), has declined to say whether he would leave any agreements from the Obama administration unchanged.

.

Lynch said Thursday that the consent decree is binding and will live on.

.

The changes will help ensure effective and constitutional policing, restore the communitys trust in law enforcement, and advance public and officer safety, she said in a statement.

.

The agreement follows months of negotiations and comes after the Justice Department released a report in August alleging that Baltimore police had engaged in a pattern of using excessive force, making stops, searches and arrests without necessary justification and were disproportionately stopping African Americans.

.

Lynch took over as attorney general on the day of Grays funeral. The 25-year-olds death from injuries suffered in police custody sparked riots in Baltimore in April 2015, and led to the investigation.
