SB17-092 - Immunity Peace Officer Background Checks

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning requiring a personnel file waiver for private employment as part of the background check process for a person applying for a position as a peace officer.

Under current law, when a law enforcement agency interviews a candidate for a peace officer position and that candidate previously worked for a state or local law enforcement agency or governmental agency, the candidate must execute a waiver that allows the previous employer to release the candidate's personnel file to the interviewing agency. The bill requires the candidate to also sign a waiver releasing his or her personnel file related to employment with a private entity to the interviewing agency.
