Note from Community Impact Editor Amelia Robinson: The chart below appeared on the Dayton Daily News Ideas an Voices page Sunday, June 28.
The killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and the global protests that followed have spark a range of proposed reforms aimed at reducing racial discrimination in policing.
Due to space, it does not show proposals from state Rep. Phil Plummer and Ohio Senate and Ohio House Democrats.
There are few universal recommendations, but there is some overlap:
• Ban or severely limit choke holds.
• Ban or severely limit use of tear gas.
• Increase police officer basic and ongoing training, particularly for de-escalation and recognizing implicit bias.
• Require independent investigations for officer-involved shootings and death in custody.
• Require reporting to the state for use of force incidents.
• Increase transparency to officer discipline and disciplinary files.
