New York lawmakers pass bill to make police records more transparent

New York state lawmakers repealed a decades-old law Tuesday that has kept law enforcement officers’ disciplinary records secret, spurred by the national uproar over the death of George Floyd.
The New York City Council public safety subcommittee met Tuesday to discuss legislation aimed at police reform as state officials took steps to promote transparency.
Both the New York State Senate and Assembly approved the repeal of the law known as Section 50-a on Tuesday, which prevents the public from discovering an officer’s disciplinary record. “All across the nation, there is a shared sense of anger and frustration over the death of yet another unarmed black man at the hands of law enforcement,” said Speaker Carl Heastie. “We must provide greater transparency and accountability to the public in order for people to believe that the system is fair and just.”
