from DeWines presser on 6/17/20

(knowing how freaking RW both sides of the Statehouse is, I'm not hopeful)



snip--"Gov. Mike DeWine is asking the Ohio General Assembly to ban chokeholds, except in life-or-death situations, and to require independent investigations for all police shootings and deaths in police custody."


snip--"
The governor laid out seven recommendations for reforming law enforcement, including psychological evaluations, yearly advanced training, and more body cameras. Several of the recommendations would need to be approved by the General Assembly.

One of DeWine's key proposals was to establish a Law Enforcement Oversight And Accountability Board, which could create professional standards and a code of conduct for law enforcement across the state. Similar to the Ohio Medical Board, the law enforcement board would have the ability to review and possibly revoke the ability for officers to work in Ohio.

Currently, the only way someone can be barred from serving as law enforcement in Ohio is if they're convicted of a felony. Although DeWine says officers can get fired for racism or for other misconduct, such discipline doesn't prohibit them from being an officer. Often, they can simply join another police department."
