Governor Lamont Statement on Judiciary Committee’s Draft Police Accountability Legislation

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont released the following statement regarding the draft legislation on police accountability that was released today by the co-chairs and ranking members of the General Assembly’s Judiciary Committee:

“We find ourselves at an important moment in our history as a state and as a country. Following the murder of George Floyd, more attention has been paid, in a meaningful way, to other incidents at the hands of law enforcement. The time is now for meaningful police accountability reforms. I wrote to all four caucus leaders in the General Assembly in early June calling on them to address this important issue. I am pleased to see they are taking that charge seriously. I look forward to reviewing the bill and working with them to ensure meaningful reforms are implemented.”
