Bill Summary

In addition to the protection and security services currently provided to members of the general assembly by the Colorado state patrol, the Colorado state patrol is authorized to provide other protection and security services to a member of the general assembly as requested by the executive committee of the legislative council and as deemed necessary by the chief of the Colorado state patrol. The executive committee of the legislative council is required to establish a process by which a member of the general assembly may request other protection and security services from the Colorado state patrol. The Colorado state patrol is required to ensure that members of the general assembly are aware of the protection and security services that may be requested from the Colorado state patrol.

The Colorado state patrol is required to provide protection and security services to the secretary of state, attorney general, and state treasurer (statewide constitutional officers) upon request of the statewide constitutional officer. The Colorado state patrol is required to designate state patrol officers to be available to provide protection services to statewide constitutional officers and the chief of the Colorado state patrol is required to determine the priority in assigning state patrol officers among each statewide constitutional officer. The act specifies that it is not intended to provide around-the-clock protection for a statewide constitutional officer unless there is a credible threat as determined in the discretion of the chief of the Colorado state patrol.

For the 2022-23 state fiscal year, $1,115,090 is appropriated to the department of public safety from the general fund to implement the act.
