Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 139-05-200 Requirements of basic law enforcement training, for general authority peace officer:
The requested change cleans up this WAC and makes it applicable to full-time general authority peace officers and removes reference to reserve officers. This WAC will now apply to full-time general authority peace officers.
Also added the paragraph to clearly state ineligibility for previously revoked, suspended, sanctioned – etc. … this closes a loophole in the existing WAC.
