503 KAR 1:070. Training: qualifications; application.

 

      RELATES TO: KRS 15.330(1)(c)

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY: KRS 15A.160

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 15.330(1)(c) authorizes the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council to prescribe qualifications for attendance at schools certified by the council to conduct those law enforcement training courses required by KRS 15.440 for police officers in order for them to gain or retain eligibility to participate in the Law Enforcement Foundation Program Fund. This administrative regulation prescribes qualifications for attending law enforcement courses at certified schools and forms to be used and procedures to be followed in applying for admission to such courses.

 

      Section 1. Admission Qualifications. A certified school, as allowed by law, shall have the authority to decide what persons are qualified to enroll in its courses. (But only a police officer, as defined in KRS 15.420(2), shall gain or retain eligibility to participate in the fund by completing a course at a certified or recognized school.)

 

      Section 2. Application for Basic Training. (1) Each applicant for a basic training course at a school certified by the council must submit a completed KLEC Form 29, "Application for Basic Training," and a completed KLEC Form 30, "Medical Examination Form" to the school no less than thirty (30) days prior to the first day of the course. (These forms are available from the school - for example, the Department of Criminal Justice Training, Funderburk Building, 521 Lancaster Avenue, Richmond, Kentucky 40475-3102.) Failure to submit the forms in the prescribed manner or within the prescribed time shall be justification for denying admission to the course. The director of the school or his designee, if he deems it justified by unusual circumstances, may waive the thirty (30) day requirement.

      (2) Medical examination form requirements. The KLEC Form 30, "Medical Examination Form," shall be completed no sooner than 120 days before the date on which the basic training course begins. The KLEC Form 30, "Medical Examination Form," shall contain the opinion of a licensed physician as to the applicant's ability to participate in the physical activities of basic training as described in the form. No applicant shall be admitted to a basic training course without a completed KLEC Form 30.

 

      Section 3. Application for In-service Training. Each applicant for an in-service training course at a school certified by the council must submit a completed KLEC Form 28, "Application for In-service Training," to the school not less than thirty (30) days prior to the first day of the course. (This form is available from the school - for example, the Department of Criminal Justice Training, Funderburk Building, 521 Lancaster Avenue, Richmond, Kentucky 40475-3102.) Failure to submit the form in the prescribed manner or within the prescribed time shall be justification for denying admission to the course. The director of the school or his designee, if he deems it justified by unusual circumstances, may waive the thirty (30) day requirement and admit an applicant on shorter notice.

 

      Section 4. Falsification of Application. Knowing or willful falsification of an application to a council-approved course shall be justification for denying admission to the course. (11 Ky.R. 1538; eff. 5-14-85; Am. 12 Ky.R. 1627; eff. 5-6-86; TAm. eff. 7-9-13.)
