IBE supports the following reform policies included in HB 1006: the decertification of bad officers under less stringent requirements; penal consequences for intentionally turning off body and vehicle cameras; more expansive employment data from officers’ employers during the pre-hire phase; minimum standards for de-escalation training; and a ban on the use of chokeholds. We believe that these changes will further advance trust and fairness in the criminal justice system and improve relations among police officers and the communities they serve.
