AN ACT CONCERNING THE ENFORCEMENT OF ORDINANCES

SUMMARY: Existing law allows local police officers and certain other law enforcement officers to pursue someone outside of their precincts into any part of the state while in immediate pursuit of someone the officers have authority to arrest. This act specifies that this does not apply if the person is alleged to have violated only a municipal ordinance.

The act applies to local police officers, the State Capitol Police, and certified constables and state marshals who perform law enforcement duties.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2015
