Critics are calling on Gov. Doug Ducey to veto a bill that would keep the names of officers who use deadly force a secret for two months.

The Senate gave final approval to SB1445 on Tuesday afternoon, voting 20-8 for the measure that mandates law enforcement agencies withhold for 60 days the names of officers who kill or seriously injure someone.

African American community leaders and the ACLU of Arizona arrived outside the governor’s office shortly after the vote to deliver a petition urging Ducey to veto the bill, which they say will only further fracture community relations with police departments in Arizona.
