AB 71, as introduced, Rodriguez. Criminal justice: reporting.
Existing law requires each sheriff and police chief to annually furnish a report to the Department of Justice on justifiable homicides.
This bill would require each sheriff and police chief to annually furnish a report to the Department of Justice on shootings that involve peace officers and result in the injury or death of an individual or a peace officer. By imposing new duties on local agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: yes.
The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
