Kentucky is creating an electronic search warrant system that allows police to request and judges to approve or deny warrants online.
The e-warrant system is being developed by research database company LexisNexis and comes amid scrutiny of search warrant processes in the wake of Breonna Taylor’s killing.
Members of Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s Search Warrant Task Force discussed the project on Thursday.
Troy Belcher, the lead developer of the e-warrant system with LexisNexis, said it will create more oversight of the search warrant process.
“Everybody looks at the history when it comes to the warrants. They want to see who created it, they wanted to see who sent it, who even looked at it. We’ll definitely have that information in there,” Belcher said.
