GUSCIORA AND JOHNSON: BRING OVERSIGHT TO INVESTIGATIONS
New measure would require two independent investigators to look into police-related deathsDeputy Majority Leader Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) and Deputy Speaker Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen) have introduced a measure that would require two independent investigators to investigate all instances where a police officer or state trooper, is by act or omission, involved with a fatal incident while performing his or her official duties.
"This bill represents a proactive response to troubling news from around the country," explained Gusciora. "By introducing critical oversight and accountability to the Internal Affairs investigation process, which has historically been closed from the public eye, this legislation would give our police officers additional credibility by affirming their actions, while simultaneously building public confidence about law enforcement in general."
