Legislature Worked Together On Law Enforcement Package

The Missouri Legislature passed two law enforcement packages this session. The legislation would ban most police chokeholds and remove a requirement for Kansas City police to live within city limits. Senators Brian Williams of St. Louis County and Tony Luetkemeyer of northwest Missouri’s Parkville worked together on the plan. Williams says it would also require law enforcement to keep a database of incidents involving officers using serious or deadly force.

Under the plan, a person could also be prosecuted if they post personal information online about law enforcement, a corrections or parole officer, a prosecutor, or their immediate families, with the intent to harm them.
