State Representative Garey Bies of Sister Bay says it was an emotional time yesterday when his bill changing the way shootings involving police officers are investigated was signed into law.
The families of three men who were killed by officers were on hand when Governor Walker signed the bill.
Under the new law an investigator from outside the police agency must be part of the investigation. Bies says this should remove any cloud of suspicion.
Bies is a former Door County Deputy Sheriff.
