BCPD: ‘Bad Cops’ Legislation is a Good Thing

Subscribe to WBCKFM on

It is unclear, as yet, whether Governor Rick Snyder will sign into law the so-called “bad cops” legislation now passed by both Michigan legislative chambers.

But, Battle Creek Police Deputy Chief Jim Grafton agrees the measure – meant to help departments uncover disciplinary and other personnel issues – when an officer applies for a position with a different department.

The Michigan House and Senate passed the bill in early October.

Specifically, the bill requires departments keep information about an officer’s departure and also requires officers to sign a waiver allowing that department to share information with another department where the officer’s hiring is being considered.
