Boston City Council votes again to limit police use of tear gas, rubber bullets


BOSTON (WWLP) – Acting Boston Mayor Kim Janey is planning to sign an ordinance next week that would put limits on how police use tear gas and other crowd-control techniques.

The measure was approved Wednesday by the Boston City Council.

It would apply to the use of tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, and beanbag rounds.

The proposal would require a supervisor to approve their use and give warnings in advance.
