Diegnan, Johnson & Vainieri Huttle Bill to Require Sexual Assault Training for Law Enforcement Officers Clears PanelLegislation Assembly Democrats Patrick Diegnan Jr., Gordon Johnson and Valerie Vainieri Huttle sponsored to establish mandatory sexual assault training requirements for law enforcement officers was advanced recently by an Assembly panel.
"Law enforcement officers must focus on protecting sexual assault victims and bringing perpetrators to justice," said Diegnan (D-Middlesex). "By ensuring that all officers receive proper training, this legislation will help create a New Jersey where victims know they will be supported and offenders know they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
Bipartisan Port Authority Reform Legislation Gets OK from Assembly PanelComprehensive bi-state, bipartisan legislation to increase transparency at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was advanced Monday by an Assembly panel.
"Residents of New Jersey depend on the Port Authority every day, and they deserve nothing less than an agency that makes them a priority," said Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen). "As the legislature continues to investigate last year's unexplained George Washington Bridge lane closures, it's critical that we address the root of the problem - that this overwhelmingly flawed agency has no sense of accountability whatsoever."
