Legislative Alert! House Bill 1407


House Bill 1407 gives authority to cities and counties to pay full salaries to officers when disabled. The bill has passed the Senate committee and now goes before the full senate for a vote.


This bill gives authority to cities and counties to pay officers their full salary without forfeiting accrued leave if disabled by an on duty injury. The bill does is not a mandate, it only provides lawful authority for cities and counties to do this if they desire to enact such policy and practice. While this bill is not totally the answer, it is a step in the right direction.


All law enforcement officers, family members and friends are requested to email or call your Senator and request them to vote in support of HB-1407.
