On October 16th, the Police Reform & Accountability Workgroup created by Speaker of the House Adrienne Jones recommended the repeal of the Law Enforcement's Officer's Bill of Rights (L.E.O.B.R.). L.E.O.B.R. gives law enforcement officers additional rights and protections, beyond those allotted to civilians. The rights and protections include:
- Allowing officers charged with crimes to delay interrogations for up to five business days in order to find legal counsel;
- Limits the time to submit a complaint against an officer to one year and one day after the alleged misconduct;
- Before police investigate complaints against officers, they must notify the accused officers of the name, command, and rank of the lead investigator.
