DOJ scales back choke holds and no-knock warrantsThe U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday said it was curtailing the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies from using chokeholds to restrain suspects or executing no-knock warrants at peoples' homes before entering.

“Building trust and confidence between law enforcement and the public we serve is central to our mission at the Justice Department,” said Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“The limitations implemented today on the use of ‘chokeholds,’ ‘carotid restraints’ and ‘no-knock’ warrants, combined with our recent expansion of body-worn cameras to DOJ’s federal agents, are among the important steps the department is taking to improve law enforcement safety and accountability.”

Police tactics involving the use of chokeholds or "carotid restraints" and no-knock warrants have both become flash points across the country amid calls for reforms to address systematic racism in policing against the Black community.
