NCPBA Legislative Alert - HB 643

 

Today HB 643, Protect Officers from Retaliation, which protects municipal police officers and deputy sheriffs from being disciplined, demoted, or fired for reporting corruption, passed the House Rules Committee in a split vote.  It will be heard on the House Floor tomorrow, May 16, 2013.  This is the last and ONLY chance that the bill will have for being passed this year by the crossover deadline, which is also TOMORROW, May 16, 2013.

The Sheriffs Association, who initially told PBA that they did not oppose the bill, apparently changed their minds and have now offered strong opposition to the bill.  Fred Baggett, a long time lawyer to NC Chiefs Association, also voiced opposition to the bill, saying that fired officers could go to court if they were retaliated against for reporting corruption.

 

Our legislative leaders and legislators from both sides of the aisle stood up for you today against the strong opposition of police management groups. Now it is time for you to support them and tell ALL House Representatives to VOTE FOR HB 643.
 

Do it now and please get friends and family members to call and/or email their legislator NOW.

Whistleblower Protection Legislation Passes the House

May 7, 2019

The NCPBA was proud to be on hand today as HB 348 passed the House by a 115-1 vote. HB 348 as originally filed by Rep. Holly Grange, Rep. Debra Conrad, Representative Bobby Hanig, and Rep. Billy Richardson offered protections from retaliation for municipal police officers who report corruption. The bill passed through the Judiciary Committee and was later given a referral to the Rules Committee by Rep. Lewis after Rep. Faircloth and Rep. Allen McNeill offered a PCS (Proposed Committee Substitute) that would protect all municipal employees. The PBA wants to thank all of these legislators for their efforts with this critical piece of legislation.
