Legislation supports local law enforcement, boosts transparency

From State Representative Cindy Ziemke
This legislative session, I am co-authoring a proposal for a new law supporting local law enforcement, and boosting accountability and transparency in policing.
House Bill 1006 would require full employment record sharing between police departments to identify bad actors, provide additional flexibility to the Indiana Law Enforcement Training Board in order to address significant officer misconduct, and require de-escalation training for new recruits and current officers.

House lawmakers are also committed to investing in improved training programs and much-needed facility upgrades at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, which hasn’t been updated since the 1970s.

Our public safety officials risk their lives to protect our communities, and they need the tools to continue keeping us safe. Key supporters of the proposal include the Indiana State Police, Indiana State Police Alliance, Indiana Fraternal Order of Police, Indiana Sheriff’s Association, Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police, Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, Hoosier State Press Association, Inc., the Indy Chamber of Commerce and the Public Defender Commission.

From improved training to increased accountability, these enhancements would help Hoosier police officers better serve and protect us.
