OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin has signed 12 measures adopted by the Oklahoma Legislature into law, including one that outlines guidelines for retiring Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers who want to keep their service weapon.

The measure provides that a retired officer with the Department of Public Safety who wishes to purchase their weapon upon retirement must pay the price the agency paid for the weapon at the time of purchase.

Another measure signed into law by Fallin on Monday outlines the procedure courts must follow to remand a person found incompetent to stand trial because of a need for mental health treatment.

The measure allows a person determined to be incompetent be treated in the custody of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services or in a county detention facility.
