This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 87%. (I’m a bot)
A recent report found that just 5 out of 18 investigations into police use of deadly force met all the requirements of an independent investigation called for by Initiative 940, the sweeping 2018 police reform law that calls for independent and transparent investigations into police uses of deadly force.
Her bill would create the Office of Independent Investigations, housed within the governor’s office, which would be responsible for investigating cases of deadly force and serious injury by officers.
Requested by the governor’s office, the bill is based on recommendations from the governor’s task force on police use of force that came about last year in response to Pierce County’s failure to comply with I-940 in the investigation into the suffocation death of Manuel Ellis at the hands of Tacoma police in March 2020.
