|Effective Date:||August 28, 2001|
SCS/SB 341 - This act changes the training and certification requirements for elected sheriffs beginning January 1, 2002. Currently, elected county sheriffs are exempt from Chapter 590, RSMo, requiring minimum training hours, background check and other requirements of certification by the Director of the Department of Public Safety. This act makes elected sheriffs subject to such certification.
Sheriffs holding office on January 1, 2002, who have not taken 470 hours of basic recruit training within twelve months of election are not allowed to participate in primary enforcement activities.
Sections establishing a training program after election of sheriffs are deleted.
The provisions of this act do not apply to the Sheriff of St. Louis City.
This act is similar to Perfected SCS/SB 806 (2000).
