U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) released the following statement after cosponsoring the JUSTICE Act, comprehensive legislation to reform police tactics, training, transparency, and accountability:
“There is no place for police brutality in our society, and it’s time for Congress to act to keep our communities safe and fulfill our nation’s promise of liberty and justice for all.
“The JUSTICE Act will increase transparency and accountability, improve training, expand the use of body cameras, and end the practice of chokeholds. Most importantly, it will help build stronger relationships between law enforcement and the communities they are duty-bound to serve and protect.
“Unlike misguided efforts to defund or abolish the police, this commonsense, comprehensive bill will put our nation on a path to greater healing, unity, safety, and justice. I hope Congress moves quickly to send this vital legislation to the president’s desk.”
