Purpose: WAC 139-10-210 Requirement of basic corrections training, 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. Adding this block [back] into the definition will clarify that both of these academies are required for certification as a community corrections officer.
