Explanation

The amendment requires state marshals executing service for temporary restraining orders where the respondent holds a firearm to request the presence of a police officer, which can be a municipal police office or a member of the state police.  The law enforcement agency of the town may designate a police officer to be present when service is executed by the state marshal.  To the extent that local police or state police officers incur administrative or mileage expenses, the amendment results in a potential cost to the DESPP and municipalities.
