Summary:
Appointment of special police officers and special conservators of the peace. Specifies criteria for appointment by circuit courts of special police officers and special conservators of the peace. Currently, the powers and authority of both classes of special officers are broad and rooted in the authority of conservators of the peace generally. However, the modes of appointment, bond requirements, background check requirements and limitations on carrying weapons differ significantly, while the authority and jurisdiction are similar. Bond is waived for persons who, within three years prior to appointment, met the entry level law-enforcement training requirements or were employed as law-enforcement officers. This bill also expands the authority of the appointing circuit court to limit or prohibit the carrying of weapons of both classes of officers, notwithstanding the right of a conservator of the peace to carry a concealed weapon.
