A bill is being discussed in a Kansas Senate committee Tuesday that would give fire investigators law enforcement powers in the state.
This means, if an investigator encounters a crime in progress, they would have the legal right to pull-over, detain, and even arrest someone. The Kansas Fire Marshal, Doug Jorgensen, made clear during his testimony in favor of the bill that investigators would not be conducting traffic stops.
