What Does The State Of California Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill Of Rights Act (Pobar) Govern?
The Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights (POBAR) Act provides for elements of procedural rights that must be followed toward public safety officers when they are subject to an investigation or discipline. POBAR also provides for rules regarding officer personnel records, privacy, searches and other issues. One of the main sections of POBAR provides that if an officer is under investigation and subject to interrogation by his or her commanding officer or any other member of the employing public safety Department, that could lead to punitive action, that the interrogation will be conducted under certain conditions.
