CSSB 23(CRA) - Fiscal Note 2
This bill adds a new section to Alaska Statute (AS) 29.71 and amends AS 44.28 and AS 44.41 to require mandatory use of
force reporting for the Departments of Corrections (DOC) and Public Safety (DPS) and agencies that employ municipal
police or correctional officers to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI maintains the National Use of Force
reporting program for law enforcement agencies to voluntarily submit use of force incidents using federal use of force
definitions. The FBI’s definition for use of force is based in whole or in part on Title 18 United States Code (U.S.C), Section
2246 (4) and Title 18 U.S.C Section 921 (a)(3). The bill does not include a definition for ‘use of force’ or a definition for
‘prepared to use deadly force’.
The bill requires the DPS to provide a report detailing the information provided by the DPS, the DOC, and municipalities to
the FBI in the prior year; however, this will not be possible as the DOC and municipal correctional facilities are not eligible
to submit use of force incidents to the FBI program. The FBI definition of a law enforcement officer for the National Use
of Force program does not include probation/parole officers or correctional officers, which this bill requires. The FBI
program also requires agency participants to submit a ‘zero’ report for months in which no qualifying use of force
incidents occur in order to have accountability for 12 months of data. The bill does not address this. Additionally, since
the agencies will be submitting the data directly to the FBI, the DPS may not have access to all the information a law
enforcement agency submits, as the DPS is not the recipient of the information.
The DPS Division of Statewide Services is responsible for collecting and maintaining the state's Uniform Crime Reporting
(UCR) program under AS 12.62.130. Currently, the UCR program staff provides assistance to agencies voluntarily
participating in the FBI's National Use of Force program. Since this bill would require agencies to submit their data to the
FBI program, the division does not anticipate a fiscal impact from this bill at this time.
The Alaska Police Standards Council (APSC) is responsible for establishing the minimum standards for employment as a
police officer, probation officer, parole officer, and municipal correctional officer; for certifying, and as warranted, de‐
certifying these officers; and establishing training curriculum under AS 18.65. With that requirement, the APSC maintains
a case management system, ACADIS, to manage the training, certification, and investigative records for these officers.
Automating the case management of APSC administrative investigations is necessary to handle the increasing workload
with existing staff. The APSC’s current information management system can be enhanced at relatively small annual cost
to provide this tool. Preparation of an annual APSC report to the legislature will involve staff time but is not expected to
require additional staff. The APSC would assume responsibility for certifying all Municipal Corrections Officers, which is
anticipated to be an increased workload but should be manageable with existing staff.
The department is submitting a zero fiscal note for this bill at this time.
