Dr Corey L Teague started this petition to Governor Phil Murphy

Currently under a directive from the Attorney General’s Office, any deadly use of force by a municipal police officer is investigated by the county prosecutor and not the local police department, and then reviewed by the state. Unless the facts indicate the use of force was justified, the circumstances of the incident must be presented to a grand jury to determine whether charges are warranted. The bill calls for grand jury hearings to be held outside the county where the death happened. We are calling on Gov. Murphy to sign this bill into law BEFORE the end of the January 2019. Sign the petition and urge the governor to fulfill his promises to those who voted for him! This bill will help cases like Jameek Lowery who we believe was beaten to death by Paterson Police officers. As community activists we are calling for an independent prosecutor and investigation to ensure there is a fair and impartial process.
