AB 443 – POST “Biased Conduct” Definition By 2026
AB 443 requires the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) to establish a definition of biased conduct and to develop guidance for law enforcement agencies when screening applicant social media accounts for bias. The definition of bias must include: bias against a person’s actual or perceived class or characteristic protected under the Unruh Civil Rights Act; and, that conduct is biased if a reasonable person with the same training and experience would look at the facts and conclude that the conduct resulted from bias due to membership in a specified class.
(Amends Section 13510.6 to the Penal Code.)
