AN ACT CONCERNING A RISK PROTECTION ORDER OR WARRANT
Honorable Members of the Judiciary Committee,
In Connecticut, a confiscation petition may be filed only by law enforcement officers or state’s attorney. Any person—including family members, former dating partners, neighbors, co-workers, and so on—can meet with law enforcement or a state’s attorney and request a petition. Then, officers or attorney must conduct their own investigation, moving forward with a petition if they find it warranted. This is available-any time, day or night. Oppose this bill.
