Senate Bill 415 (Richardson-1971)
Chapter 637, Statutes of 1971
Some bill research does not include the Governor's file because at the time we researched the bill, the sitting Governor had not released his chaptered bill file. If the Governor's file is not included with this particular research, please contact our office (1-800-666-1917 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will be happy to provide this file at no charge if it is available. Please Note: Governor files did not exist prior to 1943.
According to the Enrolled Bill Memorandum to the Governor, Senate Bill 415 was introduced at the request of Los Angeles County to make “Los Angeles County Security guards peace officers while engaged in their regular duties.” (See Exhibit #6, document PE-2)
A Bill Analysis Work Sheet prepared by the author’s office for the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice provides the following background to this legislation:
Currently Los Angeles County security officers and correctional officers do not have limited peace officer status. They, of course, are subject to making at-peril arrests. My bill would grant limited peace officer status which would relieve this problem.
(See Exhibit #4, document AP-1)
