Current Bill Summary

SB 212 - This act changes the requirements for elected sheriffs. 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.

Sections establishing a training program after election of sheriffs are deleted since, under this act the training is required prior to election.
