BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore is moving ahead with police reforms mandated by an agreement with the Justice Department under President Barack Obama.
Mayor Catherine Pugh announced Thursday’s launch of a website that outlines the process. The next step is to choose residents of the city for a new police oversight committee.
A federal judge recently approved the agreement, despite objections from President Donald Trump’s Justice Department.
Online applications are being taken through May 22, and by July, the panel should begin reviewing the city’s current civilian oversight process.
