AB156,1,3 1An Act to renumber 175.47 (1) (a); to renumber and amend 175.47 (3) (a); and

Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law requires at least two investigators to investigate a death that
involves a law enforcement officer. Under current law, neither investigator may be
employed by a law enforcement agency that employs an officer involved in the death.
This bill modifies that limitation and adds another limitation so that neither
investigator may be an individual who was employed or whose immediate family
member was employed within the previous ten years by a law enforcement agency
that employs an officer involved in the death.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
