HB320 by Alonzo (Relating to equipping certain K-9 law enforcement vehicles with heat alarm systems.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Health and Safety Code to authorize a law enforcement agency to install a heat alarm temperature monitor system in K-9 law enforcement vehicles that meet the standards established in the bill.
The Department of Public Safety currently has heat alarm systems installed in K-9 law enforcement vehicles; therefore, no new costs would be incurred for the State.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2011.
