Maryland Legislative Panel Studies Police Reform After Freddie Gray Death


A bipartisan group of Maryland legislators this week will begin work to develop recommendations for improving police training and enhancing police-community relations, reports the Washington Post. The panel was tasked with providing the General Assembly legislative proposals to improve public safety and policing practices. The committee's effort comes six weeks after riots broke out in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody. Gray died a week after sustaining the injury. Six police officers have been charged.
