PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 139-05-242 Readmission to basic law enforcement academy.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 43.101.080.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Peace officer certification and subsequent changes to RCW 43.101.010 became effective January 1, 2002. Some of the changes directly affected the conditions under which a peace officer who was dismissed from the Basic Law Enforcement Academy could be readmitted to that or future academy sessions. Portions of WAC 139-05-242 are in conflict with the more recent RCW.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Sharon M. Tolton, Deputy Director, Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission, 19010 1st Avenue South, Burien, WA 98148-2055, phone (206) 835-7345, fax (206) 439-3860. Stakeholders were contacted by e-mail to advise of the intended rule amendments. Proposal also listed on the agency website.
