HB 1217 (2020)
Require police misconduct reports to state council
Requires law enforcement officers to report misconduct by other law enforcement officers in writing to the chief law enforcement officer in his or her department. The chief law enforcement officer would be required to report this to the Police Standards and Training Council. Violating this new law would be a misdemeanor. The bill defines misconduct as "assault, sexual assault, bribery, fraud, theft, tampering with evidence, or tampering with a witness." The Senate added this bill to HB 1645.
