We are working to strengthen and improve your law enforcement rights in California.
Author’s note: When I wrote this article eight years ago, LEOs around the country identified with it — some said it was the best portrayal of our reality they’d ever read. Well, things have gotten a lot harder since then, and I think the Cop Matrix is more dangerous than ever. Together, we can do something about this reality that affects us and our families. This is actually why I started my LEO nonprofit, 360ARMOR. Please have a read and consider how much of the Cop Matrix you reflect.
Defeating AB 392 and ensuring the success of SB 230 continues to be our top priorities this year. AB 392 (Weber) was heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee on April 9. The bill was debated for more than three hours. Ultimately, and as expected, the bill passed out of committee on a party line vote of 6–2. It now goes to the Assembly Rules Committee. At the time of this writing, SB 230 was not yet heard in Senate Public Safety but, as always, we will keep you apprised as developments occur.
PORAC came to Washington, D.C., the last week of March to discuss several issues important to law enforcement.

A brief description of each issue that PORAC discussed with Congress follows.
