Beginning at 2:30 pm on August 6, the Workgroup will hear public testimony from individuals on the following issues:
- investigations of police misconduct, including investigations under Maryland’s Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights statute;
- establishing a uniform statewide use of force and arrest policy for police officers;
- the use of body cameras and disclosure of body camera footage; and
- the independent prosecution of law enforcement related crimes.
In order to testify, an individual must register in the grid below. Simply click on the orange “sign up” block within the desired time slot, then click on “submit and sign up” at the bottom of the page, next provide the additional requested information, (ignore the “my comment” and “quantity” fields) and finally click “sign up now.” You will receive a confirmatory email at the email address you provide. The registration window will be open from 9:00 am on Wednesday July 29 to 9:00 pm on Thursday July 30. Slots for registration will be limited and provided on a first come, first served basis. Please note that the meeting will take place virtually via Zoom and testimony from each registrant will be limited to 2 minutes.
A Workgroup staff member will contact registrants on or before August 5 to confirm the registrant’s attendance and provide further instructions for accessing the virtual hearing.
