PERMANENT RULES

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

TRAINING COMMISSION

[ Filed June 10, 2010, 11:14 a.m. , effective July 11, 2010 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: Repealing WAC 139-05-205.

On January 1, 2002, peace officer certification went into effect. One of the requirements for a person to be certified as a Washington state peace officer or tribal law enforcement officer is to complete the basic law enforcement academy or the basic law enforcement equivalency academy. WAC 139-05-205 allows persons who are the heads of law enforcement agencies with ten or more commissioned law enforcement officers to be exempt from this training. This action waives the training requirement, but does not allow the person exempted to enforce the laws of the state of Washington and does not authorize the exempt person to be a certified peace or tribal law enforcement officer.

WAC 139-05-205 is in conflict with the certification requirements and is no longer necessary. WAC 139-03-030 allows an agency to request an exemption, waiver, extension, or variance from the rules set by the Washington state criminal justice training commission and is still available to be used for such purpose.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 43.101.080.
