The mayor of Rochester, New York, released a proposal for police reform after officers pepper sprayed a 9-year-old girl.

Mayor Lovely Warren's plan includes accountability and response to mental health calls. Warren is also calling to update the city's decades-old policy that limits minority representation in the department at 25%. 

People of color make up more than 50% of the population, while 87% of their police officers are white.
