Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill provides that any law enforcement agency (e.g. chief of police), not necessarily the sheriff, may confiscate and retain weapons used during the commission of a crime. When the weapon is no longer needed for evidentiary purposes, the agency involved with possession of the weapon may retain, destroy, or sell it with proceeds being paid into the state treasury. An accurate description of each weapon along with records of whether each weapon was retained, sold, or destroyed must be maintained by the law enforcement agency.
