Relating to a progressive disciplinary matrix for police officer
misconduct in certain municipalities.
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 829 would establish a progressive disciplinary model for all law enforcement agencies to comply with in their disciplinary action against peace officers.
Texas Action is opposed to HB 829 on the principle of limited government. Review boards of individual law enforcement agencies are responsible for the disciplinary action taken against peace officers. State-wide models for disciplinary action will be ill-suited for individual police departments.
