Mayor Fischer Details Policy Changes Following Settlement In Taylor Case


(Louisville, KY) - Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is detailing some policy changes that are coming after the shooting of Breonna Taylor. 

Fischer says they include requiring a commanding officer to approve and review search warrants that are requested.  An early warning system will be put in place that keeps track of many things including use of force incidents.  Fischer claimed good officers are grateful for their work being exposed publicly. 

Mayor Fischer also confirmed a $12 million payment to the Taylor family. According to records, that's the largest settlement in the history of Louisville.

Taylor was shot and killed in Louisville in March during a no-knock raid.  Officers have not faced any criminal charges so far.
