ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A workgroup of Maryland lawmakers is scheduled to meet to examine public safety and policing practices.

The panel of state House and Senate lawmakers is set to hold its first meeting Monday afternoon in Annapolis.

Lawmakers will seek input from advocates and members of the public over several meetings to make recommendations for next year’s legislative session.

The panel was formed in response to the rioting in Baltimore in the aftermath of Freddie Gray’s death in April after being injured in police custody.

The workgroup will focus on police training, recruiting and hiring practices.

On Monday morning, a variety of groups including the ACLU is holding a press conference in Baltimore about acceptable police practices before traveling to Annapolis for the hearing.
