Bentley to Discuss Law Enforcement Efficiency Plan
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley plans a news conference to detail a plan for "increasing efficiency" among state-level law enforcement agencies.
Bentley plans to sign an executive order creating the position of Senior Law Enforcement Adviser. Bentley said in a news release Monday that Alabama Department of Homeland Security Director Spencer Collier will serve in this role and will help coordinate activities among state law enforcement agencies.
The Republican governor has scheduled a news conference for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Capitol to discuss his plans for the state's law enforcement agencies.
The governor's plans may conflict with legislation planned by GOP Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh. His proposal would consolidate and reorganize the state's numerous law enforcement functions into a new Public Safety Agency.
