Justice in Policing
Sheriff Javier Salazar
Eighteen days after George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer, the Minnesota state Legislature introduced 48 bills in a special session on law enforcement. On the same day, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a new bill restricting police chokeholds, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a series of police reforms into law, including repealing an obscure law, section 50-a, that shielded police disciplinary records from public scrutiny. Police response to peaceful protest and incidents of police involved citizen deaths have highlighted the need for reforms. Legislation led by the Congressional Black Caucus, and the House of Representatives approved the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, June 21.
The NEBCD July 11 meeting will address Justice in Policing in San Antonio.
