Peace Officer Provisional Certification Requirements

Concerning granting provisional peace officer certification to a person who was authorized as a peace officer in the armed forces.
2024 Regular Session

State Government
Bill Summary

Under existing law, the peace officer standards and training board may grant a person a provisional certification as a peace officer if the person satisfies the requirements for a provisional certificate. One of the requirements is that the person must have been a peace officer in another state or federal jurisdiction, excluding the armed forces, within the preceding 3 years. The act removes the exception for the armed forces, so that being a peace officer in the armed forces satisfies that requirement for a provisional certificate.

APPROVED by Governor March 22, 2024
