Louisiana Legislature approves mobile police ‘amendments’ that do little to give the state a better police force.

Police reform efforts You are loading All over the country, But very few have any creative ability Lasting, positive changes. Improving law enforcement is difficult. Legislators often, Still “Support the Blue” If not for any other reason than the police as well Government employees. Powerful Police associations They are deeply rooted The biggest obstacle To improve – They have the ability to make full use of reform accounts to support legislators and intimidate small law enforcement agencies.

Louisiana Legislator He finally agreed to some recommendations from the regional task force. However, the best recommendations are omitted from the final decision, leaving regional residents to cooperate with law enforcement agencies and not really need to change much to honor the smallest changes.

Probably the most significant change is how this shows you a little It changes for the state police.

Reduce the time an accused officer can see the counselor from 30 days to 14 days.

This means that officers will answer questions a little earlier during the interrogation. The task force, on the other hand, approved an extension from 60 days to 75 days. This means that it will be at least two weeks before the results are made public እንኳን even if no information is available.

There is an unreasonable “restriction” of anxiety that allows officers to use chokeholds if they or someone else is in danger. Some kind of false ban now guarantees no one.

Prohibit an officer with a “knock” order unless there is proof that such an guarantee is needed to protect an officer from death or physical injury. Officers should still identify themselves as uniformed officers and issue a notice of entry into the building.

Therefore, guarantees of incompetence are the same as before. The only difference is that officers have to identify themselves when serving a knockout order – which they should not do until then Later You are already logged in.

Requirements for additional training and recruitment of minor officers. The reforms address existing issues, such as the need for agencies to report on the credibility of the authority to prosecutors (especially defense attorneys) and to initiate investigations.

Another minor positive action is the task of creating a process to revoke the authority’s license in case of misconduct. Currently, an officer’s certificate can only be revoked if he is charged with a crime. There is also a new requirement for officers to activate dashboard cameras when leaving their vehicles. The upgrades also lead to the same body camera requirements, which means nothing is available here.

But it could be a very strong set of reforms. But the task force – mainly composed of government officials – has chosen recommendations that can lead to lasting, positive change.

First, the task force rejected the proposal to investigate all police officers by a foreign law enforcement agency. The situation remains the same, allowing departments to investigate their own officers – with a tendency to liberate them.

The task force also refused to detain officials at the same level as those charged with criminal offenses.

The group voted [Rep. Ted] James’ suggestion to prevent investigating officers from reviewing their body footage before meeting with investigators. He said that going to the film with his lawyers before giving a statement to the investigator would help the accused officer to create a fairy tale to escape punishment.

Other members found James’ idea too extreme. He said that looking at the footage would help an officer recall the incident.

Indeed, it can “refresh” their memory. But it is more than enough to do with accused citizens. They are not allowed to review copies of any criminal record before talking to investigators. There is no reason why officers should be given more due process than those they serve, but government representatives and law enforcement officials often seem to believe that prosecuted officers should have an initial start to the investigation, even before defense is sought.

This is not really an improvement. It’s about underestimating their nakedness. This is what Louisiana should already have in place. There is no reason to applaud what other states consider to be the basis for reform efforts.
