New York City's city council speaker says local lawmakers have reached a deal to install an inspector general to oversee the police department after outrage over widespread spying on Muslims.
Christine Quinn announced the agreement Tuesday. It also comes in the wake of anger over the extensive use of the police tactic known as stop and frisk, which often targets young blacks and Hispanics.
Proponents say an inspector general could build public confidence.
The city's police department says it already has more oversight than any other department in the United States.
Details of the plan weren't immediately known.
