State lawmakers across the country have moved swiftly to address issues related to policing in the wake of recent fatal police interactions across the country.
Please join NCSL for a Zoom series on policing issues at the federal and state levels.
NCSL’s Standing Committees develop policy directives and resolutions, adopted by the conference, that serve to guide NCSL's advocacy before the federal government. See a list of officers and NCSL staff and members and workgroups.
Recent federal activity for NCSL's Law, Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee include testimonies for committee hearings, letters on pending federal legislation, comments on proposed federal agency actions, and bill and regulations summaries.
On July 28, 2020, NCSL will hold the first of two distinct programs for the Law, Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee. Part 1 will focus on the biggest cases decided this term. On August 4, 2020, the second part will focus on cases granted for the October 2020 term.
