Attorney General Neronha issues statement on passage of LEOBOR reforms


PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Attorney General Peter F. Neronha today issued the following statement regarding the House of Representatives’ passage of reforms to the state’s Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights (LEOBOR):


“I am pleased to see that that the Law Enforcement Officers’ Due Process Accountability and Transparency Act passed today in the House of Representatives. This legislation will help law enforcement better serve their communities and hold accountable those who break the public’s trust. While there is undoubtedly work left to be done, I applaud the General Assembly, community members, law enforcement agencies and others who have contributed to this important effort to improve policing in Rhode Island. 


I want to thank Speaker Shekarchi and Deputy Speaker and bill sponsor Raymond A. Hull for their work in passing this important legislation in the House, and Senate President Ruggerio for his efforts in the expected forthcoming action in the Senate.”
