    NEW LAWS STRENGTHEN PUBLIC SAFETY
    Indiana’s law enforcement officers work hard to protect all Hoosiers and deserve the tools and training to do their jobs. As chair of the House Courts and Criminal Code Committee, I also want to ensure we have strong laws that protect victims of crime.

    Recently, Gov. Eric Holcomb ceremonially signed new laws I authored and sponsored to promote public safety throughout Indiana.

    After meeting with Evansville law enforcement, I authored a law allowing emergency transport of an injured K-9 officer. Minutes matter in medical situations and this change could save the lives of operational canines.

    I also sponsored a law enhancing the penalty for domestic battery when there is a no-contact or protection order issued by the court. Violators can now face felony charges. We also expanded the successful High Tech Crimes Unit Program to help law enforcement gather and process digital evidence to solve more crimes.
