An act to add Chapter 15 (commencing with Section 54999.8) to Part 1 of Division 2 of Title 5 of the Government Code, relating to law enforcement agencies.




This bill would require a California law enforcement agency that participates in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) to do so only in a manner that is fully consistent with the laws of the State of California, including the agency’s own policies, procedures, and orders. The bill would require, before a California law enforcement agency enters into or amends a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a federal law enforcement agency regarding the agency’s participation on the JTTF, that the agency submit the proposed MOU and any orders, policies, and procedures relevant to the subject matter of the MOU to its governing body, or the Attorney General as appropriate, for approval.
