Bill to bar arrests of children under 7 in Florida caught in police reform standoff

The bill requires applicants for law enforcement jobs to disclose whether they have any pending investigation against them or if they resigned from a previous law enforcement position while under investigation. It also creates minimum training standards for the use of chokeholds, the use of force, de-escalation tactics, and the duty to intervene when another officer uses excessive force. Police agencies would also be required to have an outside agency investigate possible instances of excessive force, and issue an independent report.
