BALTIMORE (AP) - A public comment period will begin soon on a proposed monitoring plan for Baltimore police reforms mandated under a consent decree.

The plan is slated to be released for public comment on Jan. 8. The Baltimore Sun reports (http://bsun.md/2nZ4Pz1 ) that the independent monitor led by Venable attorney Kenneth Thompson submitted a draft plan to the city and the Justice Department on Dec. 5.

The public comment period will last three weeks, until Jan. 29. A final proposal will be submitted to the court for review by Feb. 5.

The consent decree mandates sweeping reforms to the police department. Baltimore and the Justice Department signed it Jan. 12, in the waning days of the Obama administration.
