QOTD: What do you think about efforts to make certain findings against police officers available to the public?


Here is the Question of the Day:

Police reform legislation drew debate Wednesday, with advocates claiming they were not fully involved in the process and pleading for more transparency than is offered. The two-hour-plus meeting of the House of Representatives Public Safety & Homeland Security Committee included conflicting testimony from lawmakers, police representatives and advocacy groups, all of whom have been part of discussions to change Delaware’s Law-Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights for more than three years. Under House Bill 205, sponsored by House Majority Whip Melissa Minor-Brown, existing code would be revised to publicly disclose certain findings against police officers and to provide select records to defense attorneys. What moves should be made to change transparency among our police agencies?
