S. 1766 (102nd): United States Capitol Police Jurisdiction Act

We don’t have a summary available yet.

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress, and was published on Sep 17, 1992.

Title I: Law Enforcement Authority and Sundry Administrative Provisions - Grants authority to an on-duty member of the Capitol Police to make arrests and enforce Federal and District of Columbia laws within an expanded area of the District: (1) with respect to any crime of violence committed within the U.S. Capitol Grounds or in the presence of such member; and (2) to prevent imminent loss of life or injury to person or property. (Current law authorizes the Capitol Police to enforce such laws within the U.S. Capitol Buildings and Grounds only.) Requires the payroll administration for members and civilian support personnel of the Capitol Police to be carried out on a unified basis by a single disbursing authority. Requires the Capitol Police Board, with the approval of specified congressional committees, to provide for such payroll administration. Makes such unified payroll administration effective as of FY 1993. Title II: Lump-Sum Payment Provisions - Provides that an officer or member of the U.S. Capitol Police who separates from service within two years of the enactment of this title, and who satisfies the age and service requirements for an immediate annuity pursuant to Federal law, shall be entitled to receive a lump-sum payment for his or her accumulated and current accrued annual leave attributable to service performed by such individual as an officer or non-civilian member of the Capitol Police Force. Sets forth disbursement procedures for such lump-sum payments.
