About the bill
Named after the 46-year-old man killed in May who sparked the protests, the George Floyd Law Enforcement Trust and Integrity Act would institute several reforms to police departments nationwide, including:
- Mandating all local, state, and federal law enforcement bodies report data to the Justice Department on uses of deadly force involving police officers.
- Giving federal grants to law enforcement agencies which devise new programs for oversight or hiring, such as bringing on more diverse officers and agents.
- Creating a federal task force to coordinate the investigation and prosecution of law enforcement agencies.
- Creating a set of federal minimum standards for police departments, standards which do not currently exist.
