Conduct of law-enforcement officers; establishment of an Early Identification System. Requires the Department of Criminal Justice Services (the Department) to establish a best practices model for the implementation, training, and management of an Early Identification System (EIS). The bill defines an EIS as a system through which a law-enforcement agency collects and manages data to identify and assess patterns of behavior, including misconduct and high-risk behavior, or performance of law-enforcement officers and law-enforcement agency employees. The bill directs each sheriff or chief of police to implement an EIS by July 1, 2024, and requires that law-enforcement officers receive training prior to implementation of the EIS and annually thereafter. The bill also directs the Department to establish and administer written policies and procedures for law-enforcement agencies to report to the Office of the Attorney General all judgments or settlements in cases relating to negligence or misconduct of a law-enforcement officer.
