In June 2020, the House Speaker, with the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, convened the Work Group to Address Police Reform and Accountability in Maryland.
The Work Group reviewed both the policies and procedures governing the investigation of police misconduct, including Marylandís Law Enforcement Bill of Rights statute, and the use of body cameras and body camera footage. Further, the Work Group considered how uniform statewide use of force policies and arrest procedures would work, and also identified national best practices for independent prosecution of law-enforcement related crimes.
In December 2020, the Work Group submitted its recommendations to the House Speaker.
