On Tuesday, local and federal leaders announced new police reform measures: President Donald Trump signed an executive order encouraging police departments to undergo de-escalation training, Governor Cuomo signed legislation requiring state police officers to wear body cameras while on patrol, and Mayor de Blasio announced the NYPD must turn over all body camera footage within 30 days of a serious incident.

Just days earlier, the NYPD's 600-member plainclothes anti-crime unit was disbanded. This comes amid global protests against police brutality and growing calls for criminal justice reform.

Pace University professor and former NYPD Lieutenant Dr. Darrin Porcher shared his take on the matter.
