LAW ENFORCE/OFFICERS:  Provides for the prosecution of officer-involved incidents

Provides for special prosecution procedures in officer-involved incidents which cause serious bodily injury or death to another individual.

Present law provides for the initiation of criminal proceedings through a bill of information or grand jury indictment at the discretion of the district attorney. 

Proposed law provides that in officer-involved incidents, prosecution may only be initiated by grand jury indictment. 

Present constitution (Art. IV, ยง8) authorizes the attorney general to intervene in criminal proceedings in certain circumstances. 

Proposed law requires law enforcement agencies to report officer-involved incidents to the district court with jurisdiction within 72 hours of the incident. The court shall refer the matter to the attorney general, and the attorney general shall either: (1) institute, prosecute, or intervene in the criminal proceeding involving an officer-involved incident, or (2) appoint a special prosecutor to perform the duties of the district attorney who would have otherwise had charge of the prosecution. 

Proposed law defines "officer-involved incidents" and "serious bodily injury".

The LAFOP is opposed to this Legislation.

FUNDS/FUNDING:  Provides for reduction to revenues into certain statutory funds

Reduces certain revenue dedications by 50% and requires the amount by which the revenue dedications are reduced to be deposited into the TOPS Stability Fund to fund the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS).  One of these funds is the Municipal and Fire and Police Civil Service Office.  In essence the cut to the office would not allow the State Examiner to remain in operation, thereby effecting testing and administration of the system.
