JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba held a press conference Monday where he signed an executive order banning the release of mugshots of those involved in officer-involved shootings

This executive order includes juveniles. 

He says this order is something he has considered since the start of his term. He says using a mugshot of a person involved in an officer-involved shooting doesn't paint the best picture of that person.
