We want to make you aware of a statutory change that took effect July 1, 2015 relative to reserve officer training. The passing of House Bill 1242 mandated the LETB to establish mandatory in-service training programs for reserve officers. The LETB has approved the same requirement as for your paid officers.
So, your reserve officers will have to obtain a minimum of 24 hours of training annually to include: 2 hours of firearms, 2 hours of emergency vehicle operations, and 2 hours of physical tactics/use of force. The LETB, at its April Board meeting, adopted the following language as a preliminary policy until such time as a new Administrative Rule can be established:
“It is the responsibility of the appointing authority to verify the training was presented under the provisions established by 250 IAC 2-7-1. These verification records are to be retained by the appointing authority for inspection by the Board, its executive director, or an authorized representative.”
We still want you to report your reserve officers’ training in Acadis but our Records Department will not verify their training like they currently do for your paid officers.
If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
Thank you and stay safe,
Executive Director, ILEA
