AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE CITY OF GREENVILLE TO EMPLOY TRAFFIC CRASH INVESTIGATORS FOR WRECKS INVOLVING ONLY PROPERTY DAMAGE.
House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Eliminates the proposed new Article V. added to the Charter of the City of Greenville (City), SL 1981-272, authorizing the City to employ Traffic Crash Investigators. Instead enacts substantively identical, uncodified language granting the City of Greenville the previously described authority set out in proposed Article V. to employ and allow nonsworn personnel to investigate traffic crashes involving property damage only, named Traffic Crash Investigators. Includes identical requirements of the City and investigators regarding the employment of investigators as previously proposed, with organizational changes, that involve establishing minimum employment standards and compliance with specified training conditions, equipment issuance, and limits of investigator authority. Similarly, specifies that investigators cannot be issued a weapon and have no authority to arrest or issue criminal process. Now requires the City to deliver a written report (was, submit a written report) to the specified NCGA committees (with corrected committee names) by December 31, 2023, on the training and use of investigators between the date the act becomes law and November 1, 2023.
Changes the act's long title.
