(WTXL) — Louisville City Council unanimously passed (26-0) Breonna's Law which will severely restrict police from conducting no-knock warrants.

Breonna’s Law also states that police must wear body cameras when conducting searches and the cameras need to be on five minutes before and after the search.

Breonna's Law, was named after Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency technician who was killed by police during a drug raid on her home in March.

Police entered Taylor's home on March 13 with a warrant to search for illegal drugs. According to a lawsuit filed by her family, none were found.

Taylor was shot eight times. Officials have said the officers were not required to wear cameras because they were plain-clothes narcotics officers.

The officers, Jon Mattingly, Myles Cosgrove, and Brett Hankison were placed on administrative reassignment.
