SB 779 Police required to get college degree

This bill makes it more difficult to hire a Police Officer

Requires law enforcement units with over 50 members to only hire new members if they have a bachelor’s degree—and only gives 4 years to obtain a bachelor’s degree to existing officers (a 4 year degree!) This will make it harder for departments to hire new recruits to fill staffing shortages, leaving our communities less safe.
