Little Rock, AR police puts use-of-force review plan on hold

Little Rock police will no longer be asking, at least for now, that the Arkansas State Police investigate city officers’ use-of-force incidents, according to Chief Keith Humphrey.

The plan to have an outside agency conduct the investigations was announced at a June 8 news conference where the chief and Mayor Frank Scott Jr. discussed department changes and transparency amid a national movement for police reforms in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
