Illinois GOP Seeking Repeals of Police, Criminal Justice Reforms

(IOCI RADIO) Illinois House Republicans are pushing to repeal several police and criminal justice reforms made last year.

Supports said the “Safe-T” Act increases public safety, holds police officers accountable and promotes more racial equality in the criminal justice system. However, Rep. Patrick Windhorst of Metropolis said “it’s not working.”

Windhorst and his GOP colleagues said the changes are driving police officers out of the profession at a time when crime is increasing all over the state.
