HB18-1076 - Peace Officers Standards and Training Board Revoke Certification For Untruthful Statement

Postponed Indefinitely
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.

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.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
