Passage of HB1418
Updated On: Mar 18, 2018
NCPSO saw progress in the 2018 General Assembly Session. We have finally gotten passage of legislation that have been seven years in the making. (The Correctional Officer's Procedural Guarantee Act), will give a new system of due process to uniformed correctional Officers when they are the subject of internal investigations. This is a significant change, one that virturally every other uniformed public safety group have access to under the Law Enforcement Officer's Guarantee Act. This bill has passed both houses of the General Assembly and is now awaiting the Governor's signature at which point it will become law and written into the code of Virginia. The bill was patron in the Senate by State Senator (The Honorable) Dave W. Marsden of the 37th District. His bill was SB851. In the House of Delegates this legislation was patron buy (The Honorable) Roslyn C. Tyler of the 75th District. Her bill was HB1418. SB851 past the Senate, HB1418 passed the House then both bills went into crossover, this means that SB851 now had to pass through the House and HB1418 like wise had to pass in the Senate. Both did with some Amendments along the way. At final passage Senator Dave Marsden agreed to roll SB851 into HB1418 since they were Identical bills seeking to achieve the same end. At this point it is incumbent upon me to recognize the commitments of the uniformed Officers of the DOC that helped make this a reality. For our members we will seek to train and inform officers on the implementation of this process. Knowing the procedure and how it works is critical. We would do well to remember, a right no exercised is not a right at all. It is only when you exercise your rights that the opportunity for justice appears.
