OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

Explanation

There is expected to be no fiscal impact resulting from the bill, which requires all State Police, Police Officer Standards and Training Council (POST), and municipal police departments provide training regarding juveniles with an intellectual or developmental disability. The bill states this training must be inclusive of the time already allotted to training on various juvenile matters. To extent that these departments choose to use currently available free curriculum, there would be no additional cost to providing this training.

House “A” amended the bill by specifying that this training must be provided at no cost, and be in collaboration with institutions of higher education, health care professionals, or advocacy organizations. There is no associated fiscal impact to the extent that these groups do not charge fees to provide such training.
