The Biden administration is considering expanding a policy that limits the use of “no-knock” warrants by certain federal agents.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that President Joe Biden was looking at whether to further limit federal agents’ use of the tactic after a Minneapolis SWAT team fatally shot Amir Locke, Federal Times/Associated Press reports.
The Justice Department announced in September that it was curtailing the use of “no-knock” warrants by its federal agents. Psaki said Biden is now weighing an expansion to other federal agencies. Agents and officers in Homeland Security, for example, also use the tactic.
