Police Reform Bill Signed into Law

A police reform bill has been signed into law in Indiana.

Governor Holcomb signed House Bill 1006 Thursday.

It requires police officers to take de-escalation training and creates a procedure to decertify officers who commit misconduct.

The bill also bans chokeholds under certain circumstances and makes it a misdemeanor for police officers to intentionally turn off a body-worn camera to cover up a crime.
