Federal officers are now prohibited from using chokeholds and executing warrants unannounced in some circumstances, the Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Under the new policy, law enforcement officials cannot use "chokeholds" or "carotid restraints" unless deadly force is authorize. These restraints restrict the airway or blood flow to the brain when pressure is applied to the neck.

The policy also limits "no knock" entries to situations that would create an imminent threat of physical violence to the agent or another person, a restriction the department said is "narrower than what is permitted by law."
