AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – The Aurora City Council took up a proposal on banning the use of “no knock” warrants by police. City councilors heard its introduction on Monday night and passed it on introduction 7-3.
It will be heard a second time at a later date.
If the ordinance is adopted, officers would have to identify themselves or notify residents they are entering the property.
The technique was used in the raid of Breonna Taylor’s home in Louisville, Ky. earlier this year. Taylor was asleep beforehand and was shot multiple times.
