On Tuesday the community has a chance to speak to the group in charge of overseeing police reform in Baltimore.

The BPD Monitoring Team is holding four public forums to get the public's input on the consent decree with the justice department.

According to the City of Baltimore, this comes after the Department of Justice found that it believed the Baltimore City Police Department had engaged in a pattern and practice of conduct that violates the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, and certain provisions of federal statutory law. 

Now, they're working on a monitoring plan that will be reviewed by the DOJ, Baltimore Police Department and the City of Baltimore.

Tuesday's forum starts at 5 at Mervo High School.

The next three are:

  • November 28 at Douglas High School
  • November 29 at Dunbar High School
  • December 19 at Harford Heights Elementary School
