Authority: IC 5-2-1-9; IC 36-8-3-20

Affected: IC 5-2-1-9; IC 36-8-3-20

Sec. 4.

(a) When a law enforcement officer or reserve police officer fails to successfully complete the required hours of in-service training in a calendar year, the board, through its executive director, may make inquiry to determine if the failure was caused by an emergency situation, the unavailability of courses, or for some other reason.
(b) If the inquiry reveals that the failure was caused by an emergency situation or the unavailability of courses, the board, through its executive director, may waive the officer's training requirement for the year by making an appropriate entry in the officer's master training file. However, as a condition of the waiver, the board may require the officer to make up the training hour deficit during the next calendar year.
(c) If the inquiry reveals that the failure was not caused by an emergency situation or the unavailability of courses, the board, through its executive director, shall make an appropriate entry in the officer's master training file. In addition, the board shall notify the officer of the results of its inquiry and send copies of the correspondence to the chief executive officer of the officer's department and the prosecuting attorney of the county in which the officer works.
(d) An officer who fails to complete the required hours of in-service training in a calendar year, for some reason other than the existence of an emergency situation or the unavailability of courses, shall not be eligible for continued employment. If an officer has not completed the required hours of in-service training in a calendar year, the appointing authority shall immediately suspend the officer's police powers until the training requirement is satisfied. The dates of any such suspension shall be recorded in the officer's training record at the officer's department.
(e) To regain eligibility for employment, an officer in noncompliance must make up the training hour deficit and submit proof of the training received to the chief executive officer of the employing department, who shall immediately forward it to the board.
(f) If the board finds that the training received meets the requirements established for mandatory in-service training, the officer shall be considered to be in compliance with the training mandate as of the date the officer completed the last hour of training required by the mandate.
(g) An appropriate entry shall then be made in the officer's master training file, and the board, through its executive director, shall report the compliance date to the following:
(1) The officer.
(2) The chief executive officer of the officer's department.
(3) The prosecuting attorney of the county in which the officer works.
