LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1754, Jones-Sawyer. Office of Emergency Services: California Olympic and Paralympic Public Safety Command.
The California Emergency Services Act, among other things, establishes the Office of Emergency Services within the office of the Governor, under the charge of a Director of Emergency Services appointed by the Governor. The act and other existing law set forth the duties and authority of the office and the director with respect to specified emergency preparedness, mitigation, and response activities within the state.
This bill would require the Office of Emergency Services to establish the California Olympic and Paralympic Public Safety Command (COPPSC) to facilitate the planning, resourcing, management, and delivery of safety and security at the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles. The bill would require, by January 31, 2021, the office to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the Los Angeles Organizing Committee for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and with other necessary parties, to implement COPPSC’s safety and security activities. The bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2029.
