Current Bill Summary


SCS/SB 52 - Currently, sheriffs, county marshals and other officers are not allowed to charge for their services rendered in cases disposed of by a violations bureau. This act allows these officials to charge for their services, even when a case is disposed of by a violations bureau. One-half of the amount collected will be deposited in the MODEX fund. The other half will be deposited in the inmate security fund of the county or municipality where the citation originated. If the county or municipality does not have an inmate security fund, all of the amount collected shall be deposited in the MODEX fund.

This act also creates the MODEX fund. The fund will be used for the support and expansion of the Missouri Data Exchange (MODEX) system. The Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission will administer the fund.

The act specifies that sheriffs, county marshals or other officers located in St. Louis County cannot charge for their services rendered in cases disposed of by a violations bureau.

This act is similar to provisions contained in HCS/SB 100 (2013), HCS/HB 371 (2013), HB 86 (2013), HB 464 (2013), and HB 1675 (2012) and SB 779 (2012).
