A Senate panel debated legislation Friday to permit no-knock warrants only if requested by the local police chief, or sheriff, and state’s attorney before submission for a judge’s signature. The Judicial Proceedings Committee is expected to vote Monday to approve the measure, which stops short of ending the use of the warrants as the bill’s sponsor had urged, and send it to the full Senate for its consideration later in the week.
