From tactics and training to issues of oversight and transparency, police conduct has come under national scrutiny in the aftermath of George Floyd's death at the hands of a former Minnesota police officer. Calls for racial justice and police reforms have resonated in the Granite State, as well, and on Tuesday, Governor Sununu announced a new commission charged with examining police accountability and transparency and issuing recommendations within 45 days. Also on Tuesday, the state senate passed a bill that includes a ban on the use of chokeholds.
