Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez introducing new bill requiring feds to identify themselves

The bill would compel all on-duty agents to clearly display their agency name, their own last name and their identification number and would create a new oversight process within the Justice Department requiring recurring audits by its inspector general.

“Federal law enforcement officers should have their identifying information displayed while on duty,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “This is basic.”

“Citizens deserve to know who’s arresting them-or at least what entity-to report any abuses they suffer or witness,” – Irvin McCullough, deputy director of legislation at the Government Accountability Project
