TRAINING COMMISSION

[ Filed September 28, 2005, 9:01 a.m. , effective October 29, 2005 ]


Purpose: WAC 139-10-550 Basic arrest, search, and seizure academy, 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 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.
