2017 Senate Bill 223

House Roll Call 287: Passed

To establish a process and liability exemption for a police agency disclosing information to another agency about a formerly-employed officer who may have been fired. The process includes letting a separating officer review the record and make his written explanation a permanent part of it. Applicants for a police job would have to give the prospective employer a waiver allowing it to get the records explaining the separation, and the former employer would be immune from liability for revealing this.
