PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The corrections division has formulated and implemented a new academy to better serve the Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration's employees training needs. This academy is presently known as the Juvenile Residential Counselors Academy and is cited in WAC 139-10-210. This academy presently does not have a WAC that defines the curricula of that 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: Adopting a WAC defining the curricula in this academy will clearly state the subjects covered in this academy.
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, Criminal Justice Training Commission, 19010 1st Avenue South, Burien, WA 98148, phone (206) 835-7345, fax (206) 439-3860.
Interested parties are invited to attend the upcoming meeting of the board on corrections training, standards, and education on August 5, 2004, at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission in Burien.
Stakeholders were contacted by e-mail to advise them of the intended rule amendments. Proposal also listed on the agency website.
