The bill requires law enforcement agencies to develop policies to support officers involved in a shooting or fatal use of force. The policies must address pre-incident training and preparation, support for the officer at the scene of the incident, post-incident support and services, guidelines for temporary leave or duty reassignment, and guidelines for return to duty. The policies must be completed by January 1, 2020. Law enforcement agencies are required to review the policies on a biennial basis.
The bill allows a law enforcement agency to apply for and receive a grant from the peace officers mental health support grant program to assist in developing and implementing the agency's policies.
