INDIANAPOLIS, IN - An Indiana bill will give law enforcement officers a 25-foot bubble around them that the public can’t cross when told to stop.
The measure falls under a bill that’s a step away from the governor’s desk.
The Senate has approved HB 1186, mostly along party lines.
The bill says if a person comes within 25 feet of an on-duty police officer after being told to stop, they would now commit a Class C misdemeanor. That’s punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
The bill is headed back to the House for further consideration.
