Essentially, the call for the Peace Officer's Bill of Rights helped to outline common sense provisions and expectations that all law enforcement officers should enjoy as part of their employment. The inherent need to provide occupational protection to peace officers was modeled after similar legislation in California. Some of these provisions establish a fixed time to initiate an investigation upon the formal filing of a complaint. Others suggest the due process of administrative complaints of an officer and the exact rights to which the accused officer is entitled in an evaluative process. Additionally, there are inclusions to the law that pertain to a personnel file of an officer and rules governing transferring an officer.
