CHICAGO -- Two City Council committees begin holding hearings today to create a new police accountability ordinance.

Aldermen say the goal of the hearings is to receive input from experts and the public.

Officials are working with the police accountability task force to reform the system in an effort to restore public trust in the police department.

The ordinance is expected to be introduced to the full City Council on July 20.
