New oversight of Baltimore Police Department sought

Jul 16, 2018

The task force reviewing civilian oversight of the department is calling for a more powerful independent police accountability agency to replace the existing Civilian Review Board. 

The task force also recommended staffing a new Civilian Office of Police Accountability to not only investigate complaints of police misconduct, but also audit police training, policies, and procedures; and conduct community outreach on policing issues.  People can comment on the recommendations through August 10th.
