Police reform bill clears New Mexico Senate panel after changes


By Robert Nott rnott@sfnewmexican.com Feb 24, 2021 Updated 2 hrs ago

Some three weeks after its introduction, a bill encompassing sweeping police reforms cleared its first committee hearing — but only after the sponsor made considerable changes.

Members of the Senate Health and Public Affairs Committee voted 4-3 Wednesday to move Senate Bill 227 to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Among other measures, the bill would restrict police officers’ use of physical force and require them to intercede and report when they witness excessive use of force by a colleague.

Law enforcement agencies also would have to submit a report to the state within 30 days of an incident and post the report on their website for public access.
