Multiple bills passed by the 86th legislative session will have an impact on Texas law enforcement. There were administrative changes, changes in existing statutes, and new laws. Texas’ law enforcement professionals will better serve their communities by increasing their awareness of changes and additions to state statutes as they pursue equality in justice and ensure public safety. Case law, especially cases handed down by the Supreme Court of the United States, is of incredible importance to the administration of Justice. This online course will briefly cover recent judicial decisions that are important for law enforcement officers, administrators, and policy makers. Unless otherwise noted, bills went into effect on September 1, 2019.
