MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A legislative committee is expected to take public comments on a bill that would revamp police protocols for handling officer-involved deaths.
The bipartisan bill would require a team of three investigators, including two from an agency that wasn't involved in the death, to prepare a report on the incident. A new state Justice Department board would review the report and submit recommendations to prosecutors and forward the report on to anyone responsible for disciplining an officer involved in the death.
The Assembly's criminal justice committee is set to hold a public hearing on the measure Thursday.
