Proposed California Law on Crime Victims with Disabilities

Via the Word Warrior, I read of a bill introduced by State Rep. Sally Lieber that would fund a series of programs involving crime victims with disabilities. Here is a summary of the bill:

In order to ensure that people with disabilities are treated with respect, this bill (AB 2038 ) will make sure, among other things, that law enforcement officers will be trained about the unique needs of people with disabilities (for example, making sure that physical examinations take into account a person’s cognitive or physical disabilities) and mandates that violence-prevention education include appropriate information about victims of crime who have disabilities.
