|Title:||HS/SS/SCS/SB 387 & 289|
|Effective Date:||August 28, 1995|
HS/SS/SCS/SBs 387 & 289 - Bailiffs who are not certified peace officers before January 1, 1995, must complete a minimum of sixty hours of training. However, the training of bailiffs certified before this date must be deemed adequate by the Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission (POST Commission). The POST Commission may, by rule, provide for the reciprocal recognition of equivalent entry level core basic training which is completed at specified training centers. Additional training prior to certification may be required by the Commission. An officer's certification may be suspended for failure to comply with the continuing education requirements of the Commission. This act adds the rules review language for rules promulgated by the Commission.
A certified peace officer may not have his certification
revoked unless he has been afforded a contested case hearing
pursuant to Chapter 536, RSMo. An officer who is offered a
hearing, but does not respond within ten working days waives his
right to a hearing. Railroad police may investigate incidents
occurring on railroad property beyond such property.
