The bill provides that each state or local law enforcement agency subject to Code Chapter 27A must collect data relating to the commission of public offenses by nonresident aliens as defined in Code Section 91.1. Data collected shall include whether a citation issued or the basis for the arrest, whether the public offense was a misdemeanor or felony, whether the public offense was committed against another person, injuries sustained by another person or a law enforcement officer as a result of the public offense and the type of property seized pursuant to an arrest.
