"I wanted to be a part of the Civilian Oversight Task Force because I believe that meaningful civilian oversight of law enforcement is one of many important ingredients in curbing civil rights violations and the trauma and distrust these abuses result in. I plan on making recommendations based on research that includes reviewing best practices from around the country and input from Baltimore City residents."
