Currently, there are police officers in this State that are not covered by the Police Officers and Firefighters Employment Relations Act meaning that they do not possess the right of organization and representation. The purpose of this bill is to allow certain law enforcement officers, including supervisors, currently not covered by the Act to have the right of organization and representation. This bill only makes those officers not currently covered by the Act eligible to organize and be represented under the Act. The Act is not intended and should not be construed to affect the rights of any public employer, police officer, or firefighter already covered by the Act.
