After months of protests and calls for police reforms, a Boston task force has drafted some proposals.

The initial draft from the Boston Police Reform Task Force calls for several things, including a new independent board to review police misconduct and the expansion of the department's body camera program.

Jack McDevitt directs Northeastern University's Institute on Race and Justice and consulted with the city about these recommendations. He joined WBUR's Deborah Becker to discuss.

This segment aired on September 11, 2020.
