CSLEA Supports Assembly Bill 685 - Peace Officer’s State-Issued Handgun

The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) is announcing its support of Assembly Bill 685 introduced by Assembly Member  Katcho Achadjian (R-San Luis Obispo). 

AB 685 would allow the spouse or domestic partner  of a peace officer killed in the line of duty to purchase the officer's state-issued handgun at fair market value.  The spouse or domestic partner shall request to purchase the handgun in writing to the department within 30 calendar days of his or her spouse/domestic partner's death.

"This is something that could mean a lot to a slain officer's grieving family," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.  "Current law allows a peace officer who has retired to seek permission from a department head to purchase his or her state-issued handgun, this bill amends the legislation to afford spouses or domestic partners of officers killed in the line of duty, that same opportunity.   I think our members, many of whom are sworn peace officers,  should be aware of the current option and the amendment currently being considered by state lawmakers."
