TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A measure in the Kansas House that would eliminate anonymous complaints against police officers has run into stiff opposition by the NAACP and law enforcement agencies that say the bill would increase the public's mistrust of police.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1iCbjbg ) reports House Bill 2698 would require anyone submitting a complaint against a law enforcement officer to sign an affidavit. It also would prohibit other law enforcement agencies from conducting their own investigations if a complaint already has been ruled false by the original agency.

Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter testified Tuesday against the bill before the House Transportation and Public Safety Budget Committee. He and law enforcement leaders from Johnson and Riley Counties said the bill would hamper their ability to conduct internal investigations.

The committee took no action.
