HCS/SB 932 - This act creates the "Cyber Crime Investigation Fund". This fund shall be used solely for the administration of the Cyber Crime Investigation Grant Program. Beginning with fiscal year 2010, the General Assembly shall appropriate three million dollars to the fund annually. The Department of Public Safety shall administer the fund.
This act allows money distributed by the Department of Public Safety to investigate internet sex crimes against children to be used to fund training for prosecuting and circuit attorneys. Currently, the money can only be used for other purposes, including training law enforcement personnel.
Currently, peace officers who make traffic stops are required to receive annual training concerning the prohibition of race profiling. This act changes the training requirement to three hours within the law enforcement continuing education three-year reporting period.
Currently, a search warrant shall be executed as soon as practicable and shall expire if not executed and the return made within ten days after the date of making the application. Under this act, a search and any subsequent searches of the contents of any property, article, material, or substance seized and removed from the location of the execution of any search warrant during its execution may be conducted at any time during or after the execution of the warrant, subject to the continued existence of probable cause to search. A search and any subsequent searches may be conducted after the time for delivering the warrant, return, and receipt to the issuing judge has expired. A supplemental return and receipt shall be delivered to the judge upon final completion of any search which ends after the expiration of time for delivering the original return and receipt.
This act is similar to SB 477 (2007), SB 795 (2008), HB 2224 (2008).
