This administrative regulation prescribes standards and procedures for such approval.


      Section 1. Council Authority. The council shall have the authority to review all curriculums for all law enforcement courses to be provided by all schools certified by the council. The council shall have the authority to require all such curriculums to indicate, and to justify, the "passing" performance level on all graded exercises in the course.


      Section 2. Submission Requirements. All proposed curriculums or proposed amendments to previously approved curriculums shall be received by the council at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of anticipated review. (The curriculum approval form - KLEC Form 31 - is available from, and should be submitted to, the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council, Third Floor, Commonwealth Credit Union Building, High Street, Frankfort, Kentucky 40601.)


      Section 3. School Endorsement. All course curriculums and amendments to course curriculums submitted by a school shall be endorsed by the director of the school or his designee.


      Section 4. Approval Procedure. Upon review of the proposed course curriculum or curriculum amendment, the council shall vote whether to approve, approve subject to stated conditions, or disapprove. Course curriculum approval shall last for only three (3) years; curriculums approved before the effective day of this administrative regulation shall remain approved until three (3) years after the effective date. Curriculums which are to be continued shall be resubmitted for approval at least thirty (30) days before the council meeting which occurs last before the expiration of the three (3) year period.
