Lawmakers heard two bills on Thursday that could impact law enforcement and civilians.

One bill looks at whether the state should set up a study committee to look at the idea of creating a citizens review board for police-involved shootings.

The other would ban the use of facial recognition technology in the state. It will go to a special subcommittee of the House Executive Departments and Administration Committee for further review.

Many of those who came to the hearing on House Bill 1642 strongly supported banning the use of facial recognition technology, while an official for the industry said doing so would “take a critical law enforcement tool off the table,” in the Granite State.
