BENTON HARBOR — A proposed Citizen Review Board would improve the relationship between residents and police, Benton Harbor city commissioners heard during their Monday meeting.

Similar boards in other cities have not only improved communication, but have given citizens an avenue to have their complaints and concerns heard, said Gwen Swanigan, founder of the S.H.A.R.P. Foundation (Society Harmonizing Against Racial Profiling), during her presentation to the commissioners.
