Makes sweeping changes to the state’s Criminal Justice Training Commission (CJTC) which trains and certifies peace officers in Washington. Under this bill, CJTC’s mission will expand to focus broadly on the integrity, effectiveness and professionalism of police officers with the goal of promoting public trust and confidence. To that end, the commission itself will expand from 16 to 21 members and add civilians so that the majority of the membership is made up of non-law enforcement representatives. CJTC’s authority will also be expanded to give it the ability to temporarily suspend a police officer’s certification and make it easier to decertify an officer for misconduct. The bill also expands background checks for would-be officers and creates a publicly searchable database of complaints and disciplinary actions against officers. One of the goals of the legislation is to prevent problematic officers from moving from department to department.
