New era of policing and accountability

Sponsored by Maryland State Senator Jill Carter, Anton’s law will declassify police administrative and criminal misconduct records from personnel records to public records, allowing them to be inspected by civilians through the Maryland Public Information Act.

“The belief is that agencies will be now less inclined to ignore public complaints, to fail to fully investigate complaints, and then once there are findings of misconduct, they will cease what has been kind-of a cultural process of failing to render appropriate discipline,” State Sen. Carter explains.

The Senator discussed this bill with Tasmin Mahfuz to discuss this sweeping reform. Full post available on WDMV
