Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 1183 -- Law Enforcement Restitution Fund

Sponsor:  Mayer

This bill allows counties to establish by ordinance the County
Law Enforcement Restitution Fund.  The fund will receive money
from court-ordered restitution.  The restitution may not exceed
$275 for any charged offense.  If a defendant fails to make a
payment to the fund, probation may be revoked.  The fund may only
be used for law enforcement expenditures specified in the bill
and will be supervised by a board of five trustees appointed by
certain county officials.  The county is prohibited from reducing
any law enforcement agency's budget as a result of establishing
the fund.  The fund is subject to audit.

The bill also allows the court to order a defendant to enter an
offender treatment program, work release program, or a
community-based residential and nonresidential program.
