Please review and distribute as appropriate.
This is to inform you of the provisions of House Bill 1831, enacted by the 81st Legislature, Regular Session.
Effective September 1, 2009, vehicles used by a peace officer for law enforcement purposes may qualify for a *Private Law Enforcement Vehicle* remark to be placed on their vehicle record. Vehicles that qualify include those owned/lease by:
- a governmental entity;
- a police department of a private institution of higher education that commissions peace officers; or
- a private vehicle owned/leased by the peace officer that is approved for use for law enforcement purposes by the head of the law enforcement agency that employs the peace officer, or by that person's designee.
We have developed a template to be used for applicable vehicles. The template will only be available to law enforcement through the Vehicle Titles and Registration (VTR) Division*s Regional Offices.
If you have any other questions or need any additional information please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration Division Regional Office.
If you have any comments or suggestions concerning this VTR communication process, please contact your local VTR Regional Office.
