Lexington City Council expected to vote on no-knock warrant ban

Local

LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Lexington City Council could vote on a proposal to ban no-knock warrants today.

The ordinance passed earlier this month by a vote of nine to six.

It’ll get a second reading today.

Multiple racial-justice groups have been pressuring the city to ban no-knock warrants for quite some time now.

MORE NO-KNOCK WARRANTS:

We do expect to see members of the council at City Hall this evening ahead of the meeting which is set to start at 6 p.m.
