Senator Gardner announced that the hearing on SB18-059 will take place, but it will be laid over to work on an amendment.
Senator Fields explained SB18-059 concerning the creation of a public safety information-sharing system. She provided information about her work with the Colorado Information Sharing Consortium (CISC). Membership in the CISC allows law enforcement personnel to search, analyze, and share tactical and strategic law enforcement data in real time. Senator Fields reported that some jurisdictions do not have the funds to join and become a CISC member agency, however, and the bill provides grant funds to do so. She stressed the importance of sharing law enforcement information across jurisdictions.
