At the afternoon meeting, the Minneapolis City Council passed a restraining order against the city police station.
A commissioner said: “We cannot let George Freud’s death go to waste.”
The injunction is temporary and still requires the approval of the judge before it is issued.
The order prohibits the police from using chokes, and also requires the police to report and intervene (if prohibited practices are used).
In addition, according to the order, the Minneapolis Police Chief must authorize the use of crowd control weapons, such as rubber bullets and tear gas.
The order also requires timely disciplinary decisions and allows civilian audits of body camera lenses.
Mayor Jacob Frey said: “This is a moment when we can completely change the way the police department operates.”
Frey said it was difficult to make such changes in the past, “Now we can finally do this.”
In orderThe City Council, obtained by CNN, said it hopes to build “toward a systematic approach.”
Velma Korbel, Minister of Civil Rights of Minneapolis, said she hopes that “the state legislature will be forced to take action to change laws that prevent cities from making the necessary profound and systematic changes, while communities have dozens of Year’s requirement.”
