Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Among other changes aimed at incentivizing service in emergency personnel positions, this bill would achieve an NCLM goal of providing additional resources to lessen the strain on sworn law enforcement officers when providing custody of individuals in crisis. The bill does so by authorizing other individuals to perform these services, including commissioned company police officers and certain security officers. Creates a new homestead exclusion from payment of local property taxes for surviving spouses of emergency personnel officers who were killed in the line of duty. Directs a study and report by the N.C. Department of Transportation to examine issues related to interstate access by emergency personnel during periods of road construction. (version 1)
