House and senate leaders on Beacon Hill announced Monday they'd reached an agreement on a landmark police reform and racial justice bill.

Up for a final vote at the State House Tuesday the 129-page proposal would create a new police accountability and oversight system, ban chokeholds, and set new limits on so-called no-knock warrants.

We hear reaction from Rev. Mariama White-Hammond of the New Roots AME Church in Dorchester, and Boston Police Sgt. Eddy Chrispin, president of the Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers.

This segment aired on December 1, 2020.
