Black and Latino caucus members discuss police reform legislation

 By: Yawu Miller | 12/23/2014 Baystate Banner

With police practices facing scrutiny across the U.S., Massachusetts Legislative Black and Latino Caucus members are poised to push for a package of criminal justice system reform legislation aimed at promoting greater transparency and accountability in the state’s law enforcement agencies.

Among the legislation lawmakers discussed at an information session last week were bills that would require police departments to collect and share data on motor vehicular and pedestrian stops, a bill that would require police to issue a receipt with their name and the reason for pedestrian stops and a bill that would create a full-time inspector general to review allegations of police misconduct.
