Prohibiting consideration of traffic tickets issued during law enforcement officer performance reviews

HB 2399 prohibits consideration of the number of traffic tickets issued, or the amount of penalties assessed from tickets, in a law enforcement officer’s performance review, evaluation, rating, assessment, salary, promotion, or assignment. The proposal passed the House of Representatives last week on a 95 – 2 vote.

We have expressed opposition to how this bill will interfere with normal performance reviews and to how it could be interpreted in the extreme, e.g. evaluating the performance of a traffic officer that has refused to write any tickets. AWC opposes the bill and will work to stop it from advancing in the Senate.
