Banning Chokeholds, No-Knock Warrants, And Other Abuses

The Council on Criminal Justice Task Force on Policing recently released a set of policy assessments that advise lawmakers to ban chokeholds, prohibit or severely restrict the use of no-knock warrants, and require officers to intervene when they see peers and supervisors use excessive force or engage in other misconduct.

The policy assessments, based on reviews of the most recent and rigorous research combined with the expertise of Task Force members, target policing issues that have been hotly debated for years but ignited new controversy after the 2020 deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

Plus we look at Oregon House Bill 2932, which directs the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission to establish a statewide database of reports of use of physical force by police officers and corrections officers.
