Gov. Ned Lamont signs comprehensive police accountability bill into law

“If you implement this correctly, and you put in place the provisions of this bill, you change the perception of those parts of our communities to what the profession itself is,” said Winfield, who was sitting near Lamont when he signed the bill. “I think over the long run, the profession will benefit from that. It’s something that we really haven’t been talking about, but I can imagine that if you’re a young kid growing up right now in certain communities, you don’t look at the police as a place where you want to be. But hopefully, if we’ve done this right, in the coming years, that might actually be a reality.”
