CSLEA Sponsors and Supports Assembly Bill 611 Accessing the CURES database for investigative purposes

csleaSACRAMENTO -  On February 24, 2015, Assembly Member Brian Dahle introduced Assembly Bill 611, a bill sponsored and supported by the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).

"AB 611 would authorize CSLEA members who are non-peace officer investigators at the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA), to request, from the Department of Justice, access to the CURES database if they can demonstrate probable cause that the information is relevant to their investigation of a licensee." said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.

The CURES database contains information from prescribers and pharmacists on prescriptions for controlled substances.  Under current law, peace officer investigators may request access to the database.  AB611 would extend the request process to DCA non-peace officer investigators who perform some of the same types of investigations as peace officer investigators.

"We're talking about investigations of alleged substance abuse by a licensee.  It's  a growing problem in California and both peace officer and non-peace officer investigators investigate these cases," said Barcelona.  "Let's give these investigators the necessary tools to do their jobs."
