Today, Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) released the following statement after becoming an original co-sponsor of theJUSTICE Act, legislation that offers real solutions to increase transparency, accountability, and performance in our nation's law enforcement:

"I'm proud to be an original co-sponsor of the JUSTICE Act -- meaningful legislation introduced in the House by my colleague and former police officer of 20 years, Congressman Pete Stauber. With critical reforms such as requiring reporting when use of force and no knock warrants are used, sharing disciplinary records for officer hiring consideration, and developing training on de-escalation tactics, this bill ensures our police officers are better prepared to protect and care for the communities they serve.

"Community groups and law enforcement leaders agree on these commonsense reforms, and the JUSTICE Act will provide real solutions, not just political talking points."
