At an Ivy League university, Hillary Clinton will propose having "body cameras for every officer nationally," the New York Times's Maggie Haberman reports on Twitter.
This is considered a "major speech," according to the Times's Michael Barbaro. "In major speech today, Hillary Clinton will address 'fundamental unfairness' of US criminal justice system toward blacks, according to aide," Barbaro tweets.
Clinton will be joined by former New York City mayor David Dinkins at today's speech.
An aide provided a preview of the speech to the Huffington Post:
Hillary Clinton will deliver a major speech on criminal justice reform Wednesday, calling for fundamental changes to how the United States punishes its citizens and an end to a system that disproportionately targets black men. ...
Clinton will lay out her vision for criminal justice reform, centering around an "end to the era of mass incarceration," according to an aide who provided a preview of her remarks. Those changes include addressing probation and drug diversion programs, increasing support for mental health and drug treatment and pursuing alternative punishments for low-level offenders.
She also will call for body cameras for every police department in order to increase transparency and accountability in a way that benefits both officers and members of the public.
