The 2nd week of the 2021 Indiana General Assembly session has concluded. I attended several committee hearings this week and will do so again next week.
One bill of interest is HB1006. The bill was authored by Rep. Greg Steuerwald. Your FOP and the Indiana Law Enforcement Coalition met with Rep. Steuerwald on several occasions during the last six (6) months to help craft the language of HB1006. The bill creates guidelines to help police agencies in hiring and training and creates other measures to enhance the relationship between the community and law enforcement.
Attached you will find Legislative Report #2, 2021. The report is again very lengthy as many bills of interest to the FOP have been filed this session. The list of bills will shrink over the next few weeks as bills will fail to pass through the process.
As always, please feel free to contact President Owensby, Leo Blackwell, or myself for additional information.
