HCS/SB 770 - Under this act, a person may be ordered by the court to pay into the county law enforcement restitution fund for a moving violation; however, the amount ordered cannot exceed $300.
This act provides that current or former county elected officials and current or former employees of the county commission shall not be appointed to the board of trustees that supervises the fund. Currently, current or former employees of the sheriff, prosecuting attorney, and treasurer are excluded. In addition to other authorized uses, money from the fund may be used only for county law enforcement-related expenses rather than such expenses in general.
Any person appointed to the board of trustees shall serve a term of three years and shall not serve more than two terms.
