The Boston Police Reform Task Force is hosting a listening session to gather community feedback on their initial draft recommendations.
The Task Force was charged with reviewing the Boston Police Department’s (BPD) current policies and procedures and then presenting to Mayor Walsh and to the public recommendations for reform. The Task Force focused on four main areas of review:
- Use of Force policies
- Implicit Bias Training
- the Body Worn Camera Program, and
- Strengthening the Community Ombudsman Oversight Panel (COOP) board.
Feedback from this session will guide the Task Force on their final recommendations on changes to BPD policies and procedures.
