BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police Commissioner Anthony Batts proposes new safety measures for transportation vans.

The proposal comes nearly two months after Freddie Gray suffered a severe injury while inside one.

Derek Valcourt has more on the changes and what some are saying about them.

Police say they were planning changes to the transport vans even before Gray’s death from injuries in the back of one of those vans brought a national spotlight to Baltimore.

Police say all transport van drivers have been retrained since the Gray incident in April.

They are also considering adding GPS tracking to the vans.
