Hartford Rep. Angel Arce is a co-chairman of the task force. He says the group has already heard from professionals on victim's rights and legal processes. He says the panel now wants members of the public to come forward and share their ideas and concerns.
The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Phillips Metropolitan CME Church in Hartford.
The 17-member task force was created as part of a new law exempting from the freedom-of-information law the release of photographs, film, video and other images depicting a homicide victim if those records are considered an unwarranted invasion of privacy.
The panel faces a Jan. 1 deadline.
