At a recent meeting of the Standards Review and Interpretation Committee (SRIC) the committee directed staff to post for client comments the following proposed standard revision.  Please post your comments prior to Friday September 3rd, 2021.


33.4.4 (LE1)(M M M M) (LE1) Entry Level Limited Function Alternate Training Requirements

The agency requires all individuals charged with performing sworn law enforcement duties to complete  an entry level recruit training program equivalent to that required of full-time sworn officers. However, Agencies who do not wishing to include certain employee classifications with law enforcement responsibilities in a full entry level recruit training program may opt that classification out of a full training program by accomplishing the following:

    1. prepare a detailed job analysis for the position which identifies tasks that are law enforcement related; and
    2. develop a matrix that identifies the training, and hours of training provided, of that training for the classification.


This standard refers to training for employee classifications performing limited law enforcement duties.  Agencies using only fully trained sworn officers do not need to comply with this standard. Job tasks may include but are not limited to Community Interaction; Introduction to Basic Law; Post Crime Considerations; Introduction to Traffic; Field Activities; Use of Force; Firearms Training; Self-Defense Tactics; Less-Lethal Force Training; Criminal Arrest Procedures; Criminal Law; Constitutional Law and Court Cases; Search and Seizure; First Aid for Criminal Justice Officers; Law Enforcement Vehicle Operations; Personnel; and any other related task.

The Detailed Job Task Analysis should also identify that the classification is prohibited from performing any law enforcement related duty for which specific training has not been provided. Any function performed by a classification of employee for a specific type of law enforcement function must be the equivalent of that provided to any full-time sworn law enforcement officer. Agencies choosing to opt out of a full entry level training program must have a job analysis and classification for each function performing sworn law enforcement duties and provide required training for that classification.
