Representative Johnson Proposes Legislation to Provided Law Enforcement Equipment

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

St. Paul, MN— Representative Brian Johnson (R-Cambridge) continues to support law enforcement with his legislation. The latest bill he has submitted is a bill for a statewide public safety radio communication system.  

“Law enforcement is increasingly hindered in response time and understanding of situations by the lack of a quality communication system,” Johnson said. “This legislation is one step closer to increasing the safety of our officers who put their lives on the line daily.” 

The bill would set aside funds for portable radios and radios for squad cars. These radios would comply with the FBI encryption requirements for receiving federal criminal justice information system data.  

The bill currently is in the Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform Finance and Policy Committee for review. More information can be found here.
