WHITE PLAINS - A Westchester group is calling for police reform in response to the number of police-involved shootings in recent years.

Members of the Westchester Coalition for Police Reform converged on the Westchester County office building in White Plains today, holding signs and demanding answers.

They're urging county lawmakers to institute reforms to prevent more people from dying in police-involved shootings.

Coalition members are not only calling for changes on the county level, but the state level as well. They want to establish a special prosecutor to investigate and discipline police misconduct.

Calls to Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino's office have not been returned for comment.
