Bill would require officers to attend mental health sessions
SALEM, Ore. —
Lawmakers are considering a bill that would require law enforcement officers to meet with mental health professionals.
Right now, that’s only required when officers use deadly force. But if Senate Bill 1531 passes, every officer would have to attend a mental health session once every two years.
The session would not be a mental health evaluation.
Law enforcement agencies would be required to cover the cost.
