Current Bill Summary

SB 565 - This act defines a "reserve officer" as any member of the police reserve force, armed or unarmed, who works less than full time with or without compensation and who, by his or her assigned function or as implied by his or her uniform, performs duties associated with those of a police officer and who currently receives retirement benefits.

A reserve officer shall not be considered a member of the police retirement system for the purpose of determining creditable service, nor shall any contributions be due. A reserve officer shall not be entitled to any benefits other than those awarded upon his or her original retirement. Service as a reserve officer shall not prohibit distribution of such benefits.

This act is similar to CCS/SCS/HCS/HB 397 & HCS/HB 947 (2009).
