HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is ready for change in how communities are policed around the country.

Prior to protests on Wednesday, the NAACP released a list of 10 demands for all police departments.

See the entire list:

  1. Create a Citizens Review Board, Police Trial Board, or Accountability Review Board for the public to have permanent presence/seats and have subpoena power.
  2. Release all body camera, citizens, and business camera footage; and 911 call audio to public.
  3. Immediately release the names of all officers, supervisors involved in all shootings.
  4. Release and/or create Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)s:
