Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 05-12-062.

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: WAC 139-10-550 Basic arrest, search, and seizure academy.

Hearing Location(s): Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission, 19010 1st Avenue South, Burien, WA 98148, on Wednesday, September 14, 2004 [2005], at 10:00 a.m.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Currently, the arrest, search, and seizure week is part of the Community Corrections Officer Academy. Each iteration multiple students attend just this portion of the academy. These additional students are usually transferring from corrections counselor or classification counselor positions within the institutions and have already completed a majority of the academy. These additional students cannot be tracked with the present system and, therefore, do not show up in the commission's records as having attended and completed training in this area. This change would allow the commission to document the students' attendance and successful completion of this important aspect of community corrections officers basic training.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 43.101.080.

Statute Being Implemented: Not applicable.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission staff in cooperation with the Board on Corrections Training, Standards, and Education (BCTSE), governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation and Enforcement: Bob Graham, Burien, Washington, (206) 835-7302.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. Proposal is exempt under RCW 19.85.025(2); therefore, a small business economic impact statement is not required.
