Gusciora to Discuss Police Oversight Bill with Wisconsin Activist who Inspired Legislation

Deputy Assembly Majority Leader Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) will meet with Wisconsin police oversight activist Michael Bell on Friday to discuss legislation Gusciora has introduced that is modeled after similar Wisconsin legislation inspired by the death of Bell’s son.

Bell’s son was killed in an unwarranted police shooting over ten years ago, motivating Bell to lobby the Wisconsin legislature for laws that would require independent investigators to investigate deaths involving a police officer. The passage of the Wisconsin legislation earlier this year motivated Gusciora to introduce similar legislation in New Jersey (A-3756).

Gusciora and Bell will also be joined by a detective from the Kenosha, WI police department, to discuss the initiative.

WHEN: Friday, Nov. 21, 2014, 3:00 p.m.

WHERE: 15th District Legislative Office, 144 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08604
