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:
- Black faith leaders once again call for permanent ban of no-knock warrants in Lexington
- Black faith leaders criticize ‘divisive rhetoric’ amid no-knock warrant discussions
- Kentucky search warrant task force to talk search warrant process
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.
