Sen. Deidre Henderson (R)


SB 185 (Law Enforcement Transparency)

Libertas Institute supports this bill.

This bill would collect annual information from law enforcement agencies regarding SWAT deployments as well as forcible entries (e.g. home raids). 16 separate points of data will be collected regarding each incident, and the data will be summarized and published openly for policy makers and the public to review.

Libertas Institute supports this bill. Government transparency is important on issues affecting life, liberty, and property—and because law enforcement officers can and do use lethal force, it's imperative to have transparent access to data so that legislators and the public at large can be assured that this authority is being properly used.
