Killeen City Council To Discuss No Knock Warrants
Just days after the KIlleen Police Department announced plans to put a 90 day temporary hold on controversial "No Knock Warrants" as part of a police reform effort, the Killeen City Council will be taking up the matter at a city council meeting tonight.
The Killeen City Council will meet tonight beginning at 5:00 PM at the council chambers located at 101 N. College Street to listen to citizen petitions seeking the elimination of no knock warrants along with updates on COVID-19 in the city.
The practice of "no knock warrants" has come under scrutiny recently in the wake of nationwide protests over police brutality. The family of James Reed, a 41 year old Killeen man who was shot and killed by Killeen police while they were serving a 'no knock warrant' upon his residence in 2019, filed a lawsuit against the City of Killeen and police officers who work or worked with the Killeen Police Department.
