An Act Establishing That the Commissioner of Public Safety Is a Law Enforcement Officer If the Commissioner Is Certified as a Law Enforcement Officer




This bill amends the definition of “law enforcement officer” in the laws governing the Maine Criminal Justice Academy to establish that the Commissioner of Public Safety is a law enforcement officer in the employ of the Department of Public Safety if the commissioner is certified as a law enforcement officer and completes in-service training in order to maintain that certification. The bill also exempts the commissioner from certain training standards and policy development requirements.
