AN ACT TO ENCOURAGE LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES TO OPERATE PROGRAMS THAT EDUCATE CITIZENS REGARDING LAW ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS, TO RECOGNIZE THE DANGER SIGNS OF POTENTIALLY VIOLENT ACTIVITIES, AND TO PROVIDE TRAINING TO CITIZENS WHO WANT TO PROVIDE VOLUNTEER SERVICES TO LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE JOINT LEGISLATIVE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE.
House committee substitute amends the 1st edition by modifying proposed GS 160A-289.3(b), which requires local police departments to conduct background checks on potential citizens academy participants. Previously, the proposed language required the local departments to exclude individuals from the citizens academy based on prior criminal convictions or pending criminal charges or investigations. Changes this provision to instead permit local departments to exclude individuals based on prior criminal convictions or pending criminal charges or investigations.
