Police reform legislation introduced Thursday in Baltimore County would ban chokeholds and institute specific training for officers.

WBAL-TV 11 reports Councilman Julian Jones introduced the bill, which also addresses hiring policies and the use of force.

"I'm optimistic that at the end of the day, at the end of this month or beginning or next month, we will have the necessary votes to pass the bill,” Jones said.

Member of the Baltimore County Democratic State Central Committee Linda Dorsey-Walker said the bill might not go far enough.

"It doesn't address those individuals that don't get fired, that manage to hold on to their jobs,” Dorsey-Walker said.
