As new legislative bills are being written and introduced at the State Capitol, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) is lending its support to those which will have a positive impact on law enforcement, public safety, consumer protection and CSLEA members.
This week, CSLEA President Alan Barcelona signed letters in support of:
- Assembly Bill 443 (Assembly Member Alejo) Forfeiture
- Assembly Bill 489 (Assembly Member Gonzalez) Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor Act
- Senate Bill 298 (Senator Block) Money laundering: interception of electronic communications
"Through years of dedicated work with our legislators, we have a strong voice at the State Capitol, said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. ”As we do each year, we intend to weigh in on legislation that impacts our members and the work they do."
Assembly Bill 443 would add trafficking in endangered species and trafficking in firearms or other deadly weapons to a list of acts for which the prosecuting attorney may initiate asset forfeiture procedures.
Assembly Bill 489 would add ocean lifeguards to the list of public safety officers eligible to receive California's Medal of Valor.
Senate Bill 298 would add money laundering to the list of offenses for which a court may issue an order allowing the interception of electronic communications.
