CCS/HCS/SCS/SB 47 - This act modifies the educational requirements for Water Patrol members and Highway Patrol members and radio personnel. It also requires the POST Commission to establish these same educational requirements as part of the minimum standards for the basic training of peace officers.
Currently, any sheriff, except the sheriff of St. Louis County, must hold a valid peace officer license, except during the first 12 months of his or her first term of office, in order to execute police powers. This act removes the 12-month grace period beginning January 1, 2010.
