[Filed August 20, 2013, 7:18 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: New section WAC 139-05-241 is being proposed to provide guidelines for law enforcement agencies who wish to sponsor an applicant for basic law enforcement training who is not employed by or volunteering for the agency as a fully commissioned law enforcement officer.
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:
This new rule allows applicants to pay their own admission, either through personal funds or federal G.I. Bill, to the basic law enforcement academy when sponsored by a law enforcement agency.
Sponsored applicants will not be given priority status for admittance into the Basic Law Enforcement Academy; only those that are fully commissioned peace officers.
Sponsored applicants must carry and provide proof of adequate medical coverage for the duration of the academy.
Sponsored applicants must satisfy all other admission requirements to include those outlined in WAC 139-05-220, 139-05-230, and 139-05-240.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The Washington state criminal justice training commission (WSCJTC) regulates this process.
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 Sonja Hirsch, Rules Coordinator, WSCJTC, 19010 1st Avenue South, Burien, WA 98148, e-mail, phone (206) 835-7372. Commissioners will be advised of the proposed rule changes via e-mail. Proposed changes will also be listed on the agency web site.
