Law Enforcement Halo Doctrine

Created & Drafted By Director A. West - 05/05/24 (Subject to Change)

This bill Prohibits the harassment of any Identifiable Police Officer or First Responder who is actively performing His/Her Job.

This law pertains to any person who has received a verbal warning not to approach an officer; and who approaches with the intent to interfere with their official duties, threaten with physical harm, or harass the officer/s present at the scene.

If warned by a first responder, any person who does not represent a Government/State Agency must remove themselves from the scene; or back off up to 25 feet. Failing to do this after receiving a SINGLE warning will give Law Enforcement the right to charge an Offender with Obstruction.

LEO must cite this doctrine if it is the bases for an obstruction charge
