Suggested Language for SB40 Strangulation Advisal

California Penal Code Section 13701(I)

Recently, Governor Brown signed SB40 into law which will take effect January 1, 2018. SB40 was sponsored by Senator Roth from Riverside California. SB40 will require officers to give victims of strangulation a warning that strangulation may cause internal injuries and they should seek medical attention. SB40 also requires officers to document strangulation and suffocation assaults in their incident reports in order to track dangerous offenders.

This is our Suggested Language for the SB40 Strangulation Advisal.
