(WEAA)— Anton's Law, named after 19-year-old Anton Black, who died in police custody in 2018, declassifies police criminal misconduct records in the state of Maryland. 

 

After years of legislating, the law is in effect as of Friday, October 1.

“It’s really a critical step in creating public trust in policing…”

 

Maryland State Senator Jill Carter joins Dr. Kaye to share what this law means for Marylanders and police departments.
