BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, along with the police department and the U.S. Department of Justice, submitted a joint recommendation of a team to oversee a court-enforceable agreement to overhaul the city’s troubled police department.

On Friday Pugh announced the proposed team, made up of members of the Exiger LLC/21st Century Policing Team, members of the Venable, LLP Team and Baltimore Community Mediation. The news release did not specify which individuals had been selected.

A federal judge will review the recommended team and select an independent monitor to oversee the consent decree, which the city and Justice Department entered into earlier this year.
