Decertification of law-enforcement officers; acts that compromise integrity or credibility. Requires the sheriff, chief of police, or agency administrator to notify the Criminal Justice Services Board in writing within 48 hours of becoming aware that any certified law-enforcement or jail officer currently employed by his agency has been placed on a Brady list because such officer committed acts that compromise an officer's credibility, integrity, honesty, or other characteristics that constitute exculpatory or impeachment evidence in a criminal case. The bill states that, upon receiving such notice, the Criminal Justice Services Board may decertify such law-enforcement or jail officer. The bill also allows the Criminal Justice Services Board to initiate such decertification proceedings. Read the Bill »
