Police licensing legislation moves through committees, awaits budget committee nods

A bill that would require the Police Training Commission (PTC) to establish and implement a police-licensing program moved out of substantive committees last week. S2742 (Greenstein)/A4194 (Reynolds-Jackson) passed out of the state Assembly and Senate Law and Public Safety committees and were referred to the respective budget committees to review the $6 million appropriation to fund the measure. The New Jersey State Bar Association has not taken a position on the bill itself, but a report from its Commission on Racial Equity in the Law (COREL) approves the concept as a strategy to combat anti-Black racism in the legal system and in the practice of law.
