Current Bill Summary

SB 394 - This act establishes the "Missouri Urban Pursuit Reduction Grant" to provide monetary assistance in the amount of a 50% match to urban police departments that purchase real-time tagging and tracking pursuit management systems.

Only urban police departments that have a pursuit policy consistent with state law shall be eligible for a grant. The Director of the Department of Public Safety shall determine an applicant's eligibility and administer the grant program. Applications must include the number of pursuits engaged in by the applicant department per year for the five preceding years. The Director shall approve all applications which are not disqualified. If there is not sufficient funding to award grants to all the eligible applicants, the Director shall determine which departments shall be awarded grants based on a formula to determine need.

This act is identical to HB 284 (2007) and similar to certain provisions of CCS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 429 (2007).
