As soon as Governor Jared Polis signs the law, Colorado will be the first state in the country to carry out the major policy reforms that demanded after the death of George Floyd.
On June 13, the Senate of Colorado passed a law that prohibits policemen from using asphyxiating devices and devices, obliges officers to wear cameras on their bodies, allows people to sue for civil rights violations in court, forbids officers to shoot rubber bullets at a crowd of people, as well as a number of other changes. According to CBS Denver, state governor Jared Policy will sign the bill soon.
The bill also requires that data be collected on officers convicted of using excessive force or facing other charges. In addition, police fired from one station should not be re-hired by another.
вЂњColorado is at the forefront. We paved the way for arms security reforms, and now we are the first to reform the police, вЂќ said one of the authors of the bill, Senator-Democrat Ronda Fields.
