Bill Status

Independent Investigations for Police Violence

This bill could've created an independent process—separate from police departments—to investigate when officers commit crimes or use questionable force. Unfortunately, the House Public Safety Committee put this bill on schedule for a vote—TWICE—and then just letting it go quietly into that good night of the first cut-off, Feb. 3. (The Committee Chair is Sen. Roger Goodman.)
