MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 8, 2015 02:22 PM
From: Representative Matthew E. Baker
To: All House members
Subject: Identity Theft Verification Passport
 
In the near future I plan to reintroduce information (former HB 585) which will allow the Attorney General, in cooperation with any law enforcement agency, to issue identity theft passports to persons who are a resident of the state, and who learn or reasonably believe he or she has been a victim of identity theft and has filed a police report citing that he or she was a victim of a violation of the Crimes Code provision relating to identity theft. The bill sets forth the application requirements necessary to obtain an identity theft passport as well as what the actual use of the passport would be. The passport provides a way for individuals to show law enforcement and various agencies that they have been a victim of identity theft. Law enforcement and various agencies are not required to accept the passport as concrete proof that the individual was a victim of identity theft. The passport in combination with the surrounding circumstances and available information may aid the agencies’ investigation of the individual’s claim that their identity was stolen. There are similar pieces of legislation in New Jersey and Arkansas.

I have attached a copy of the legislation.
