Governor announces Police Protection Act
from Office of the Governor
Gov. Greg Abbott has announced an effort to strengthen penalties for crimes committed against law enforcement officers — the Police Protection Act. The proposal is punctuated by making it a hate crime for anyone to commit a crime against a law enforcement officer out of bias against the police. The governor will request the state legislature to pass the Police Protection Act in the 2017 legislative session.
