Staff Analysis of the Legislation

HB 236 amends Article 1 of Chapter 13 of Title 19 of the OCGA to allow victims with granted protective orders to petition for additional security monitoring from their local law enforcement agencies, which include observations of the outside of the petitioner’s residence and an officer’s presence nearby the petitioner's residence. These periodic safety checks will last for 60 days and occur at the frequency of the local police agency’s discretion. The monitoring may be terminated at the petitioner’s request or at the determination of local law enforcement.
