Peace Officers Standards and Training Board Revoke Certification For Untruthful Statement

Concerning the P.O.S.T. board revoking the certification of a peace officer who is found to have made an untruthful statement, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Session:
2018 Regular Session
Subject:
State Government

The bill requires the peace officers standards and training board (P.O.S.T. board), which certifies peace officers, to revoke the certification of a peace officer if:

  • The P.O.S.T. board receives notification from a law enforcement agency that employs or employed the peace officer that the peace officer knowingly made an untruthful statement concerning a material fact or omitted a material fact on a criminal justice record, while testifying under oath, or during an internal affairs investigation or comparable administrative investigation; and
  • The law enforcement agency certifies that it completed an administrative process defined by a published policy of the law enforcement agency, and through that process, the law enforcement agency determined by a clear and convincing standard of the evidence that the officer knowingly made an untruthful statement concerning a material fact or knowingly omitted a material fact on an official criminal justice record, while testifying under oath, or during an internal affairs investigation or comparable administrative investigation.

The bill allows a person whose P.O.S.T. certification is revoked to appeal the revocation in accordance with rules of the P.O.S.T. board.
