Current Bill Summary

SB 905 - This act provides that no city, village, town, county, township, or board of police shall require, as a condition of employment, any residency rule or requirement for current or prospective law enforcement officers, unless the rule is no more restrictive than requiring such personnel to reside within a 30 minute response time.

Currently, commissioned and civilian personnel of the St. Louis City municipal police force must retain a primary residence in the city for a total of seven years and then may maintain a primary residence that is located within a one-hour response time. This act provides that such personnel shall not be subject to a residency requirement so long as the primary residence is located within a one-hour response time.

The provisions of this act shall not apply to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

This act is substantially similar to SCS/SB 558 (2020) and identical to provisions in HCS/SS#2/SCS/SB 594 (2020), HCS/SS/SB 725 (2020), and HCS/SB 774 (2020).
