IN CT: Important Jurisdiction Bill Re Police Signed Into Law

Jurisdiction Bill Signed Into Law! Police Can No Longer Cross Town Lines To Enforce Their Own Local Ordinances

 MEDIA ADVISORY
June 23, 2015

A bill spurred by the interrogation of a former Major League Baseball player and ESPN analyst in Hartford last year, by a police officer out of his jurisdiction, was signed into law.

The law will bar police from questing people out of their jurisdiction for minor violations. The bill will not impede police officers from pursuing investigations, misdemeanors or felonies in other jurisdictions.

David McGuire, the Legislative and Policy Director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut said, “This will strengthen the rules for police interactions with the community. It is our hope that it will lead to improved interactions between citizens and law enforcement. Every negative and unnecessary interaction with law enforcement undermines the community’s trust in police.”

The incident that inspired House Bill 6863 occurred as Doug Glanville—former outfielder for the Phillies, Rangers and Cubs and current ESPN analyst—was shoveling snow from the driveway of his Hartford home. A police officer from neighboring West Hartford responded to a call that an African-American man was soliciting shoveling jobs and questioned Glanville.

He wrote about the experience in an article in The Atlantic.

“Four Years, $13 Million and Dozens of Hands”: MarketWatch Dives Deep Into LISC’s Work in D.C.

A deeply-reported MarketWatch article unpacks the incredibly complex process of creating affordable housing by profiling an apartment complex in Washington D.C. that LISC has helped preserve. Extensive interviews with our CEO, LISC D.C. executive director Ramon Jacobson and senior program officer Adam Kent are at the heart of this emblematic story of how we bring together private and public capital partners with developers and residents, and work to empower people to stay in the places they call home. A must read.

U.S. Treasury Awards $60 Million in New Market Tax Credits to LISC

The Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, part of the U.S. Treasury department, announced the recipients of $3.5 billion in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocations for 2019. $60 million was allocated to LISC’s subsidiary, the New Markets Support Company. Since its inception, NMSC has harnessed $1 billion in tax credits to offer flexible capital for projects that benefit low-income communities across the count--projects ranging from Cincinatti’s CityLink Center, home to 15 social service agencies, to a health clinic-plus-grocery store in Brockton, MA to the public library in Petersburg, VA.

We’re Not Spending Nearly Enough to Reduce Homelessness

Ricardo Flores, ED of LISC San Diego, published an emphatic op-ed in the Voice of San Diego about the desperate need for more local and state spending to alleviate homelessness. As in nearly every part of the country, San Diego’s homeless population is growing, and last year suffered a Hepatitis A outbreak. “Today’s homelessness crisis has the potential to worsen into a catastrophic public health disaster,” warned Flores, explaining that preventive strategies, housing and support services demand much greater investment to head off a larger crisis.
