AN ACT To repeal section 84.344, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof two new sections relating to policy residency requirements.




No local governmental unit shall require, as a condition of employment, that any currently employed or prospective law enforcement officer must reside within any jurisdictional limit.
If a local governmental unit has a residency rule or requirement for law enforcement officers that is in effect on or before August 28, 2021, the residency rule or requirement shall not apply and shall not be enforced.
A local governmental unit may impose a residency rule or requirement on law enforcement officers, but the rule or requirement shall be no more restrictive than requiring such personnel to reside within a one-hour response time.
