What’s New with SB 2: Peace Officer Employment in 2023
Recent years have brought seismic changes to the law enforcement profession in California. In particular, Senate Bill 2, enacted in 2021, dramatically transformed and expanded the role of the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), which is now effectively a peace officer licensing board with the ability to decertify officers, disqualifying them from employment as a peace officer anywhere in the state (and many other states too). It also creates new internal bodies within POST with the power to review agencies’ internal affairs investigations – or conduct new investigations – and to make recommendations to the Commission regarding suspension or decertification of officers. And the bill imposes new mandates and restrictions on individual state and local law enforcement agencies.
Most of the mandates and processes set forth in SB 2 are scheduled to take effect as of January 1, 2023, and POST is currently in the process of adopting regulations to implement the new law. Experienced public safety attorney Paul Knothe will lead an informative discussion focusing on the practical steps that agencies can or must take in light of the change in the law, from the hiring process through the end of the employment relationship, and beyond.
