NOTICE is hereby given that a bill substantially as follows will be introduced in the 2023 Regular Session of the Legislature of Alabama and application for its passage and enactment will be made:

A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT

Relating to Etowah County; to provide that the director and employees of The Etowah County Punishment and Corrections Authority have arrest powers and may make arrests 12

in certain circumstances.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA:

Section 1. (a) The Director of The Etowah County Punishment and Corrections Authority and employees of the authority shall be considered law enforcement officers of this state with power to make arrests and serve arrest and search warrants while performing their official duties to the same extent as deputy sheriffs are authorized in their counties as

long as they hold current certification from the Alabama Peace Officers’ Standards and Training Commission. The powers of arrest under this section shall be limited to investigations and arrests of criminal acts committed at the authority’s program facilities and acts committed by persons under the authority’s supervision that are a violation of supervision or are a criminal offense.

(b) The authority director or corrections employee with law enforcement authority may arrest any person under his or her supervision without a warrant if he or she has probable cause to believe the person has committed a criminal offense or violated the conditions of supervision. In case of a warrantless arrest, the director or employee shall prepare a written warrant stating that the offender, in his or her judgment, has committed a criminal offense or violated a condition of supervision, and the warrant shall suffice to immediately bring the offender before the court to determine probable cause for the act described in the warrant. The court may order detention of the offender pending further hearing, after which the court may revoke probation or participation in the authority’s community corrections program, or both, pursuant to subdivision (d)(3) of Section 15-18-175, Code of Alabama 1975. 

(c) The director and employees of the authority given powers of arrest by this section shall be required to comply with the minimum standards for state law enforcement officers as certified by the Alabama Peace Officers’ Standards and Training Commission.   

Section 2. This act shall become effective on the first day of the third month following its passage and approval by the Governor, or its otherwise becoming law.
