SB 769 -- Police Board Hearings

Co-Sponsors: DePasco, Wiggins

This bill revises the administrative hearing process within the Kansas City Police Department. The bill requires that the police board appoint a hearing officer to take evidence in a hearing and submit a report to the board within 30 days. Currently, the police board holds such hearings. The bill also repeals language making police board decisions final and not subject to judicial review.
