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 is to review 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 will consider how uniform statewide use of force policies and arrest procedures would work, and also identify what are the national best practices for independent prosecution of law-enforcement related crimes.

Prior to the start of the 2021 legislative session, the Work Group will make its recommendations.
